My law partner and senior associate had dinner here on a Monday night prior to a series of meetings the next day. The restaurant was totally empty but for us so we were a little concerned. We were so happy that we selected this restaurant to dine at since it was a total 10 in all ways. The food was... More

Just had dinner there with my husband. We had the Indonesian tasting menu, paired with wine. The food was absolutely amazing and, other than one pairing, the selected wine brought out the flavor of each course really well. The dining room is elegant and the service impeccable. This was our first visit to this restaurant but we will be back.

We ate here at a birthday party this past weekend. The food and the service were both excellent. It is always a true indicator of a fine restaurant when they can present outstanding food for 30-40 people and they did a fabulous job!

We had dinner reservations at this restaurant at 5:30 PM on Friday. The service was excellent and so was the food. The piano player was a very nice touch and contributed to the ambiance of the dining room. There was also a bass player who was very good. I ordered the braised beef and it was done superbly, The wait... More

Several friends and I recently visited Yonos over the weekend. The food was amazing and the service was too notch. The 24 Hour Braised Beef was delicious. We loved that they asked us if anyone had any food allergies and some of us did. That was a nice touch. We will definitely be going back in the future.

We have lived in the area for 7 years and finally got a chance to try Yonos. It is a quiet, refined upscale restaurant located downtown. We tried the four course and five course tasting menus along with the wine paring for each. Everything was interesting, different and delicious. You have to be an adventurous eater to enjoy these offerings.... More

While the formal setting is good and the food good and well presented, the service is ostentatious. Wiorth a try if you want to impress guests.

Yono is a master of the very eclectic fusion menu anywhere north of NYC. He's done this for a long time and gives his quests a unique dining experience. Highly recommended for those with discriminating tastes. Excellent wine selection.

Both my husband and I ordered the 4 and 5-course wine pairing meals and we each started out with one cocktail each. The price was about to $280 with tip. We rarely get out and we were looking forward to a wonderful meal, but this did not quite hit the mark. We loved the pretzel/mustard complimentary starter. The chicken satay... More
