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!
Hostess was very welcoming and our table was available right when we got there. Our waiter was great and very funny. Food came out quickly and was absolutely delicious. Never had a bad meal here. Really enjoy Innovo Kitchen.
Many new delicious options on the brunch menu!
Really enjoyed brunch on Sunday. Waiter was attentive and food was delicious
Always a good meal at Innovo.
Dinner and service was excellent! A very enjoyable evening- thank you!
Food was very good, as was our server Vinny. I always find the room loud and echo-ey which inhibits conversation.
Innovo Kitchen is outstanding! We are always delighted with the inspired menu, exceptional service and great vibe. It’s our go to spot!
Amazing! We will be back !
It was excellent- music was way too loud.
Food and Service was spectacular, great atmosphere and classy. Menu was somewhat limiting but the tables are much too close together. You may as well invite strangers to dine with you because you’re literally sitting right next to the nearest table. Would not revisit or recommend to a friend. Noise level also high for such a small place.
The food at Innovo I consistently good. The service was attentive. The noise level is usually loud. Overall good experience even on a busy holiday. Always recommend.
Food was decent but overpriced. Restaurant was incredibly loud and the service sucked.
Too noisy, food was good but nothing special
We recently discovered Innovo Kitchen and have been there 3 times in the last 2 weeks with the most recent being there for my wife’s birthday.
Great happy hour specials, great food, friendly attentive staff.
Looking forward to returning soon.
This was not my first visit to innovo, and I would consider myself a regular visitor of the restaurant as well. I was extremely dissatisfied by the service that I received during my visit and I will more likely than not be coming back. Our waitress was rude and made an inappropriate comment to me regarding my race and it was extremely uncomfortable not only for me but for the rest of the table. I believe her name was Cassandra, however I cannot remember for sure. I have never had a bad experience with a server or in general so I was extremely disappointed in my experience the other day.
Waitress was awesome.
Food and service were great as usual!
Another delicious and enjoyable meal at Innovo Kitchen! Our server, George, was spot on and always there when we wanted him. Drinks came right away and he gave us time to catch up a bit before ordering. The Kale Salad is so good. A perfect blend of sweet and savory. The Maine Salmon preparation is good, although some of the accompanying vegetables were not cooked enough to eat easily. But we always enjoy going to Innovo, and we’ll certainly be back soon!
The experience last night was quite surprising, I had only been here for lunch. Dinner was outstanding, the choices were plentiful and difficult to choose as it all looked very good.
The waiter was outstanding, always attentive, never bothersome and was quick with a recommendation for an excellent meal.
I highly recommend the scallops, very tasty dish.
Food and service was great but towards the end of the night we were catching up and it felt like we were being pushed out- it was not busy or near closing time. Just felt rushed out
Wonderful experience every time!
The mushroom barley soup was delicious on a cold winter night!
Would recommend it for the food, which was delicious. I would also tell a friend NOT to go on a Friday night. We were seated close to the bar and could hardly talk to each other without shouting. Not a pleasant experience at all. Also, it was very chilly, sitting near the glass doors, which I assume they open in the nicer weather. Would try it again either for lunch or on a weeknight, and try to sit farther away from the bar.
Wonderful as always!
I wish I could remember our server's name, she was lovely. This wasn't our first visit and it certainly isn't our last. Always a pleasure dinning there.
Very good meal and waitress was great. Business was very busy and staff was still keeping up and making sure we had what we needed.
Great menu and great service!
Very noisy. Awesome food and service.
Our Waiter was also awesome ! He was very attentive and helped my Wife with her choices. Well done Sir
Excellent food, exceptional service and the chocolate at the end of the meal is delish!!!!!
Always reliable for a delicious meal.
A little loud but it was busy.
Innovative. Good. Attentive wait staff. Enjoyable.
There was a hair in my friend’s food. The manager took it off the bill without us even asking, which was great, but the following weekend another friend of mine had the same issue with hair in her food.
Good food and service. Their timing was spot on. The location works well for me. My only criticism is that it is loud and the tables are quite close to each other. Overall a good experience though.
We had a nice meal, I had the cavatelli and my wife had the winter chicken salad, both were very good. Service was excellent. My only complaint is that the noise level there was high which is probably why we hadn’t been there in a while.
Kitchen Klub is a joke. $1.65 credit for redeeming 250+ points .
Hi Brian: After reading this review I was confused so I checked your account. We gifted you 250.00 points which equals $25.00 for your birthday on November 17, 2018. After that visit your dollar amount credit was $32.70. You redeemed that dollar amount ( 32.70) on March 16, 2019. During that same visit you earned another 33.00 points which is $1.65. These points are for future visits so these are the only points you had left for the visit your questioning. Please call with further questions.
Took advantage of Innovo's New Year's special. Excellent food at unbelievable price. We always enjoy the food at Innovo, but this was an exceptional value.
