Best Osso Bucco. Please make that a regular menu item
Our waitress was amazing. She always had a smile, recommendation and consistent followup on our things were going. The service, timeliness and quality of food make Innovo Kitchen a must see.
Brunch with Santa has turned into a yearly tradition with friends. The kids look forward to it every year!
A group of six went for Sunday brunch. Food was great. Seating area is a little tight, but probably exceptionally so because it was breakfast with Santa (had not known when planning). Definitely will go back.
We love Innovo! Only complaint is noise level.
Great food! Great service!!!
This was our 3rd visit. We absolutely love this restaurant and so glad someone introduced us to it!!
Every single item may family ordered was delicious, with great portion sizes! Wonderful drink list as well! Highly recommend!
Simply 5 stars all the way around. Likely the best food in the capital district.
Dining area temperature too cold. Many guests had their jackets or coats on.
I have always found Innovo inconsistent. The night we went it was overly noisy, very crowded, and our seat was literally on top of the party next to us. We could not have a private conversation. The food was average, nothing special and found the waiter to be "flippant". He delivered us the wrong check and instead of apologizing he only commented "it happens". Not impressed and probably won't go back, though I've given it many tries at this point. Just not cutting it for me.
Good food, busy for brunch. Would highly recommend reservations. Waitress was very helpful for food allergies in our party.
Out with special friends
We had Thanksgiving dinner at the Innovo Kitchen and it was great! They really outdid themselves with all the sides that were included in the traditional turkey dinner, and the stuffing was especially good.
I have high expectations for Innovo, and this meal was just so/so. It was a limited menu for thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving meal was a delight. Had options to meet vegetarian and gluten free requirements. Service was excellent.
Thanksgiving dinner was excellent, however, could have been hotter when served. Also lacked cranberry sauce with turkey.
Delicious food! Would recommend the Doritos tots for appetizer. Had a great server, very attentive. Can’t beat their happy hour ($5 glasses of wine and cocktail of the day).
5 onion bisque is to die for!
You can never go wrong at Innovo. From a date night Friday dinner to a celebration with friends Innovo is a great choice! Food was delicious, wine was great, and Vinnie was ever attentive without being overbearing! Highly recommend
Salad was served swimming in dressing and way too vunegary. Waitstaff was unintentative. Burger was good.
Delicious food and I love that they are often familiar items with and interesting twist!
Tonight was fantastic. We came here for my birthday in August and my teen fell in love with the Korean tacos. She was looking forward to returning for her birthday and it was even better than the last time. Much of this had to do with our waiter, Lindell. He was so attentive to details and really made our kids feel special. The maître d’ was also great. My salmon was overcooked, but everything else was incredible as usual. My teen was very happy and says that she wants to come for her next birthday!
The waitress was awesome!
The food is great and the service as well. The only complaint I have is the setup of tables for two. It makes having a conversation with your dinner date a little intimidating, since the two tops are very close to each other, making for very little privacy. Other than that, the experience was excellent.
We have always had an excellent experience here. Food, service, and ambiance is top draw.
It was all fun and games until our waiter completely forgot about our dessert order
This place is great. I eat there regularly. The food is always fresh and well prepared. The menu changes seasonally, so there is new foods to try. The wait staff is great and the owner is always there.
Unique menu, wonderful flavors and friendly courteous service.
Food is good quality and fresh. Prices reasonable. The noise level was unbearable. I had to shout to the person right next to me. Didn't bother trying to talk to anyone else at my table because they wouldn't have heard me. Group table was very wide making the rest of my friends too far away. So a group friend night was ruined as I only got to talk to 1 person.
Great place to go with friend to catch up with all.
Happy hour inexpensive including cheese,olives and meats. Dinner was delicious too. No rush!
Good attention and food. As always, I wish something would be done to reduce the echo and loudness. Too loud to have a conversation without practically screaming.
The salmon and the short ribs were delicious. Service was excellent
The service was great and the food was delicious. We were able to carry on a conversation with no problem and never felt rushed!
Very good food. Only issue was good was cold. Would recommend it. Was very busy.
Excellent as expected. Never a disappointment. Staff always accommodating. Food delious a d interesting. Highly recommend it. We will be back.
I was highly disappointed in the Shepard’s pie-ish meal for restaurant week. It was supposed to be a potato pancake with beef and veggies. It was a hash brown like McDonald’s! With over cooked chewy beef and only about 5 pieces. Not worth it and not good at all. Would not recommend.
Great service and yummy food
By far, the best restaurant week menu I have ever had! The short rib was delicious! The greens and beans were very tasty, as was the pasta dish my husband ordered
