Chef John LaPosta has had a long and exciting career path which has landed him in the restaurant of his dreams. Along with his partner, Tina Kruger, he has created a wonderful American Gastropub full of great energy, fine hospitality, and of course, outstanding food.

It is his passion for excellence, beaming hospitality and tireless work that have been the hallmarks of John's 30+ years as one of the Capital Region’s most popular chefs. He is known for his outstanding food that he serves to "real" people in a fun and unassuming style. His simple philosophy has always been "put the love on plate." In doing this, people feel comfortable when reading his menus and do not feel as if they need to be a chef themselves to understand it. Inspired food and service in an unassuming manner with outstanding hospitality!

    Service was very good and we there on a Monday "Burger Night." Burgers were tasty but nothing fancy. Noise level made it difficult to enjoy this place as much as we would have liked.

    What a delightful dinner we had at Innovo Kitchen! My friend ordered the special asparagus wrapped in prosciutto, which George highly recommended - and wow! An amazing dish! So, so, good. I enjoyed some Josh Chardonnay and the spring salad with salmon, reliably delicious when I want a light dinner. Thanks to our server Chris, who is always prompt and eager to help. We’ll be back soon!

    Our evening was a working business meal, and the staff at Innovo Kitchens supported the meal and our work brilliantly. Good food to satisfy a wide range of tastes and diets. Jessica, our server, was attentive but never intrusive--as close to perfect as one could ask for. My meal was delicious as well. I suspect we will be dong more business meetings there, and I know I will be dropping in to pleasant personal dining.

    Innovo is a family favorite and it did not disappoint. We sat outside which was comfortable although we were right near the door which was a bit busy and less than optimal. We asked to be moved but they said they did not have another option either inside or out. But as the evening went on there were two tables outside which remained unoccupied. But from there things got better: flatbreads and chickpea dip were very good and we ordered special drinks not on the menu which the waitress and bar staff did a great job with. We share the clams, bureaus salad and lobster roll which was filled with succulent lobster very lightly dressed as requested. Our waitress was terrific and very upbeat. Great food and a lovely evening.

    First time at Innovo Kitchen and it won’t be our last! Every aspect was amazing, the crunchy taco appetizer, the pineapple margarita, the 50:60 burger and the burrata salad with salmon were amazing! Our server Natasha knocked it out of her park with exceptional service and smiles! Can’t wait to return

    Innovo never disappoints! Love Big Mike at the bar for his innovative cocktail concoctions and the outdoor seating to enjoy while dining. Our server Gary was extremely knowledgeable on the menu selections and very helpful navigating the tablet so we could make our drink, appetizer, diner and dessert choices. Hopping place on a Thursday night and we look forward to our next visit!

    A great time with friends is easy when you have a diverse and delicious menu in front of you with super-friendly and skilled servers bringing it to you! We had a great time once again at Innovo. Caprese Sliders, Summer Salad with Salmon or Chicken, and an array of hotdogs to please every taste preference filled us all as we enjoyed the company. Love the French press coffee to finish and of course the classy and extravagant dark chocolate with almonds and cranberries, offered gratis! Innovo continues to impress. Special thanks to our patient and always helpful server, Christiane. She never missed an opportunity to do us right!

    The waitstaff were so terrific in a accommodating needs after a difficult long day, probably for if us. A little act of kindness goes a long way, and I believe that goes for customers, too. Noise more tolerable for my guest outside, I happen to be deaf, no no problem there. Waitstaff were at ease and creative. Hope there were some scratch off lottery ticket winners. ;-)

    Our reservation was at 8pm and everything was great until about 9pm, at which time our waiter and rest of the staff went into “hurry up we want to close” At this point we hadn’t ordered dessert - we were celebrating an exciting accomplishment - when we said we were interested in dessert our waiter actually rolled his eyes We were made to feel so uncomfortable we asked to get boxes to take our desserts home and left half filled cups of coffee on the table

    Outside patio reservation had to be moved indoors, something was dripping on me from the ceiling so we had to move tables, and the lobster grilled cheese which was $35 tasted burned and kind of unimpressive.
