There is no doubt that this is a top notch restaurant. The service is impeccable and the food is inventive and very well presented. The menu might not appeal to everyone , and it might sound too fancy for some palates but once you have eaten here you will be surprised that you have never tried it. It is a... More

My husband and I live in New York City and visit my mom occasionally in Albany. This visit we were celebrating my mom's 86th birthday so we wanted to pick someplace special. The usual offerings in the area have always been adequate, but nothing to write home about. My husband went on Open Table and wondered why we had never... More

Just wonderful. I am not a fancy person so I was worried that I would feel out of place there with my mom. Servers were just awesome...we did not get there until late on a weeknight and it was all just wonderful. Food was unreal! We will for sure be going back and bringing the whole family!

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
