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!

Went there with my son for dinner on a Saturday evening. Service was outstanding and the food was tasty. The only thing I did not like is the feeling of being in a conference room and not a high-end restaurant. Even though the service and food was good I would have preferred to eating in a restaurant that has windows... More

It was outstanding. From the custom made cocktail to the dessert with a glass of port and cafe latte and everything in between. My wife loved her salmon and everyone at the table left delighted

I've always loved Indonesian food and love the Rijstafel that I get when I travel to Amsterdam. I never understand why no restaurant in NYC serves authentic Rijstafel. Recently, I traveled to Albany for work. I had booked a room at the Hampton Inn and then googled "fine dining in Albany" and came across Yono's. Much to my surprise, I... More

Normally I don't have the kind of money to even look at a restaurant like this but I was in Albany on business so we decided to be adventurous. There was only one other couple when we got there so it was quiet and the serving staff was great and very understanding, as the four of us were all a... More
