Service was attentive but a bit intrusive. Food was mediocre, especially the highly recommended entre "noodle dish" loaded with cumin and salt, almost inedible. The dessert selectioins were so pretentious that none of us wanted to order one. We have eaten here at least once a year for 5 or more years but sadly this will be the last time.

Wow, it is rare that we experience perfection. It is obvious that the chef takes great pride and strives for perfection in the preparation of food. Seriously perfect. I have never had lobster cooked so perfectly. Up and down the east coast and all the way to the tip of Nova Scotia, no one has better lobster. The four course... More

We actually ate at the more casual DP's portion of his restaurant. Great food, great service. And an awesome Manhatten. A great meal at a decent price.

We returned to Yonos to celebrate our 27th Wedding Anniversary dinner and it was worth the price. They have an extensive wine list. The atmosphere was classy and the waitstaff most attentive. There is a pianist and bass player to play soft music to make your dinning experience delightful. For Appetizers: Vegetable Lumpia and Frisee & Arugula salad were wonderful.... More

Had a wonderful dinner here with friends during a weekend visit from Boston. The food was inspired and perfectly prepared. The atmosphere is very nice, elegant but comfortable and the waitstaff was very attentive and knowledgeable. I had Artic Char which was delicious, perfectly cooked and seasoned. The accompanying vegetable medley was fresh and cooked crisp. My husband had the... More

Have never had a bad meal at Yono's. Worth every penny you want to spend on food. An extensive wine list all kinds all prices. Their lamb and duck to die for. If you are in this area please don't leave without eating at Yono's you will not be disappointed.

We sat at the bar. We ate here because we were staying in Hampton Inn. The first impression was being overwhelmed with varying menus - one was supposed to be casual dining and the other fine dining (I think). But some of the items were on both menus - just greatly varying prices. One such item was the Short Ribs... More

This place needs to find a happy medium between the casual DP – small plates, etc. in the bar area – and the much too fussy “fine dining” in the very formal dining room. We were off to a scary start when four waitstaff arrived. One handed us the menu and announced that the appetizers were on the left; the... More

I was looking to WOW my guy for his birthday dinner --- and Yono's did not disappoint. Absolutely fantastic dining experience -- comparable to Victoria & Albert's (in WDW) -- beyond what either of us expected. Do not be fooled (and try not to be turned-off) by the fact that this elegant, private (15 tables total) dining experience is housed... More
