An elegant dining experience. Perfect for a romantic evening or special celebration. Don't be afraid to try something new and different, everything here is "top shelf" expertly prepared with quality service. You won't be disappointed.

A treat to get Indonesian food in an area with more limited and traditional choices. I was able to get a dinner for one, of reasonable price , that was a sampler of dishes, which is exactly what I wanted. Everything was tasty and service accommodating

We've been wanting to get to Yono's for a couple years. It was definitely worth the wait. My wife and I had two separate tasting menus, so the service was tricky. They matched courses up and everything was seamless. The courses were phenomenal- with the seared scallop app being the single best course I've ever tasted.

This place is yummy! The tasting menu was superb and featured a beautifully appointed array of Asian fusion dishes - service was lovely and all to a little piano and bass jazz duet! Yes, please!

Yono's was the prefect place for a birthday celebration. Some had the special tasting menu, some chose the daily specials. The special stuffed squash blossoms were amazing. The Tuna entree, the tuna tartare were both excellent. The bananas foster for dessert were a great ending. We visit Albany occasionally, but will be back to Yono's!

Thank Ginny R
