"This place is for old people and pretentious people with no taste who care more about a restaurant’s reputation for being “fancy” and “upscale” than for the actual flavor of the food. Hard pass."

"Was searching for a quality meal close to the Palace Theater and Yono's appeared. Excellent and unique cuisine. Service outstanding. Had a scrumptious red dessert wine Tannat from Uruguay of all places, and I am knowledgeable and collect eisvines and other sweet wines. Would strongly recommend Yono's for those with a discerning and wide palette."

"Dined here for the first time with friends from Manhattan so the threshold was high. Friend and I each had the Indonesian tasting menu, which was a very generous amount of gourmet prepared courses. Our spouses had the scallop entrees, which were very good. The tasting menu was more than enough to share with my spouse and the highlight was the bananas foster finale. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. It was the most delectable dining treat I have experienced in the Albany area."

"Had the Traditional four course w/wine pairing and the four course w/wine pairing. Offered to substitute Lamb on four course for the short ribs. Excellent service. Food is exceptional with nice presentation. Wine went well with every course. Really liked the dessert wine. It is a must if in the Albany area."

"The food is simply outstanding! The service is impeccable. Both myself and my boyfriend had the grand tasting menu which was an amazing experience for every one of the five senses! We've eaten at several Michelin star restaurants across the country and this topped them. Right in our own backyard yonos is a true gem!"

"Here's the thing the food is legit, I mean it's really amazing. The problem was that over a three hour period (we did the 10 course dinner/wine pairing for Valentine's Day) the service was just ok. Literally we had a server that stopped serving us and pretty much "disappeared" around course five. The rest of our food got delivered by random people and I think by the end of the evening we basically flagged someone down to pay our bill. For the amount of money we spent that night service was REALLY lacking. My husband and I agreed we would go back but that we would probably be a lot happier eating the “fancy” food that we love in the casual part of the restaurant."

"My husband and I travel from Rochester to Albany a couple of times a year specifically to dine at Yono's. It's that good! We revel in the nine-course Chef's Tasting Dinner with wine pairings and this time, we chose to do the higher end wine pairings so our bill was around $200 per person. I know $200 for just a dinner? This is more than that. Dining at Yono's is a full sensory experience from the gentle piano background music and the amazing service to the carefully chosen wines and interestingly delicious courses, Yono's is a culinary vacation destination!"

"Food was delicious. A feast for the eyes as well as your palette. All the waitstaff and employees were very very friend and nice. The piano player was a nice unexpected touch. I would give it 5 stars. It was a perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. If you want to go out for a special occasion or a romantic date this is the place to go. I have raved and recommended it to all my co-workers and friends. Thank you for a nice evening."

"Took my Mother our to dinner prior to attending the Il Volo Concert. Little did we know what an elegant evening treat Yono would become. Every aspect of the evening was pure pleasure, warm and appropriate customer service, excellent food served by well trained and personable young men, and an atmosphere and environment that was elegant. Thank you for a fabulous evening, just prior to an exceptional performance!"

"Went to celebrate a special occasion. Both Yono and Donna Purnomo were welcoming and seemed to genuinely care that you were taken care of and enjoying yourselves. Our main waiter was excellent -- attentive, friendly and efficient. The woman serving bread and the gentleman attending to our drinks and delivering our food were not on the same scale, but okay. The food all came out perfectly as ordered except for one plate and when we got our waiter's attention, he immediately had it fixed. (med well meat came out quite rare). Would definitely recommend to friends for a special occasion."

"The food itself was delicious! Service was chaotic; had to request silverware for first course and it was promptly delivered; however, 15 minutes after we finished someone came around with the silverware for the first course. Ha! Too many servers with little coordination of service. But they were quick when a request was made. Our round table was wobbly and I suspect that it was really a table for serving given how tightly things were packed in there. :-( Piano and bass were a little too loud and people had to speak above the overall noise. Again, food was superb but ambiance left something to be desired. Don't go there for a holiday."

"A flawless experience from beginning to end. I can not recommend this restaurant enough. Do the tasting menu and leave the wine pairings to the sommelier."
