Before heading to Yono’s, you should probably dress a little nicer than jeans and a tee shirt. Yono’s is an upscale and very impressive place. Don’t be confused by it being attached to the hotel. It’s totally separate. Yono and his staff cook some very...More

Short ribs was done to perfection with an amazing sauce. The Islandic Lamb was lean, tender with picture perfect presentation. Also the Bakmi Goreng is a must. Desserts included: Chocolate Rendezvous, Cheesecake and a assortment of sorbets all were delicious.

This is a top notch restaurant, but be ready to spend a pretty penny for the privilege. The Indonesian dishes are legit and the suckling pig and lobster were both excellent if expensive. The sauteed foie gras again great but for $26 as an appetizer...More
