Yono's is the best in Albany! Yono uses locally grown foods, local cheeses and meats to create unique flavors and blends of foods that are a gastronomic delight. There is a monthly fixed price tasting menu- this month focuses on Indonesian cuisine- paired with wines for each course- $64. The basic menu is so delicious that it was difficult to... More

This is a special occasion place for sure. At least for us average folk. The prices are astronomical. The food and service were impeccable, however. The only reason we went is because we had a Groupon and I'd been wanting to try this place forever.

I am someone who is on the road for over 100 nights a year. I have 4-5 restaurants that are destinations. Yono's is one of these. Better make a reservation as weekend night forget it. I have eaten at the bar which is one of the best locators in restaurant. Desserts are the best. Overall 5 stars no matter occasion

Right in the same building as the Hampton Inn, this place gets very busy and not surprising. the food is fantastic and purchased locally, November's menu is indonesian food as well as the usual fine wines. the staff are very accomodating and make sure all needs are met.

I ate at Yonos yesterday evening with a group from work. I am from Ireland and used to European restaurants and cuisine. Previous experiences of American restaurants have left me thinking quantity over quality was common in the US. However the meal I had at Yonos has made me reconsider my position. The Menu was varied, well thought out. There... More

This place was amazing! It was the first time my wife and I have eaten at Yono's. We met my parents there for an anniversary celebration and we have nothing but great things to say. Fantastic atmosphere, quiet and easy to have conversations. They had a live piano and upright bass playing which was a nice touch. Such great service:... More

We ate at Yonos for the first time and were very impressed. The service couldn't have been better and the food was great. Make sure you have a reservation and ask to be seated in one of the 2 back rooms, not the bar area. The bar room is crowded and noisy. The back rooms are elegant, spaciously furnished and... More

We ate at yonos/DPS last night and it was outstanding. The staff made the entire meal memorable. We are in the DP section but were allowed to ordered off either menu. I had the scallops, foire gras, ahi tar tar and filet. All were very well prepared. The spicy on the ahi took away from the ahi itself a little... More

Yono's has long been one of the top fine dining establishments in the Capital Region, and it continues to sit at the top of the list. The room is gracious (love the live piano player and jazz duo). Service is superb - always ready and times everything perfectly, but no hovering. The food is inventive and always very tasty. Wine... More
