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 quite slow, given many tables were empty. When we arrived we requested to sit outside, but were told we could not, even though several outside tables were vacant at the time. Even more were vacant when we left the restaurant. One waitress approached our table when she observed we hadn’t even been served our drinks after a considerable amount of time had passed. She thought maybe she hadn’t been told our table was hers, but we had already ordered drinks.

    Handicapped diner could not be accommodated. We arrived before ours friends, one who has challenged mobility & uses a walker. I asked for the table next to the one they were seating us at. I explained it had a direct path for our friend with the walker…they said they didn’t have a server for that table (it was occupied soon afterwards). It would have required our server to take 4 extra steps. At the end of the meal our friend had to navigate through a maze of chairs, bumping some along the way. Other diners were kind enough to move their chairs out of the way. Difficult for 4 people to view the menu on one phone or the one iPad. They brought another iPad after a long wait. It’s difficult to compare when you can only see a few menu items at a time. It’s also not necessary to tell us (scientist, software tech, highly educated customers) that the menu scan is easy to use. That is not the issue…3 of us Do NOT WANT TO USE OUR PHONES, even if we all had them with us. Drinks: I ordered the “ Pomegranate Lavender Lemonade”. I detected no lavender tea. To my taste it was pink lemonade. Not a thoughtful mocktail. A martini was brought out and the glass was half empty. It was pitiful. Food: It was C to B-

    From the greeting smiles at the entrance to the cheerful and patient servers, we always enjoy time at Innovo. We met old friends for dinner and got caught up in chatting, but Natasha gave us the time we needed. When she had to leave, we were served by Amy who did a great job bringing drinks and food we just loved! Everyone tried something different and each dish was special and flavorful in its own way. Just another wonderful meal at Innovo Kitchen!

    We were a party of five, with two teenagers and one octogenarian. Every small and large plate we ordered was shared around the table and liked by all. The food was delicious and innovative enough to be interesting, but not so fussy that it turned off the youngest and oldest members of our group. The service was perfect, and the patio was very comfortable and in the shade, which was welcome, because it was a hot, sunny day. We were very impressed and will be returning.

    My jalapeño margarita was outstanding! Wedge salad was delicious My husband ordered the pork chops. They were slightly over cooked but delicious seasonings. I ordered the scallops and risotto. I thought it was delicious but I prefer a less rich sauce for the dish. The out door seating was very pleasant. Service was really great . 4 and a half stars over all!

    Been to Innovo several times but I forgot how loud it is in there, what with the acoustics and the music playing. Normally don't mind but I had invited people I had never met before and soon realized it was a mistake to try to get to know them in the outside seating area of Innovo. Unfortunately, the food wasn't as good as I remembered, either. Appetizers were very good, but pasta dishes just so-so. Thank you.

    The atmosphere in the outdoor seating was superb. The staff was very attentive but there was an unusual delay from the kitchen. The food was delicious, but a couple of our party thought they wouldn't order what they had again. All in all, a great place for an after college graduation dinner. On the pricey side, but a beautiful patio seating.

    Waited at the table for 9 minutes and finally asked a server who had our table. We were told the server who had our table went home. Glad we asked or who knows how long we would have been sitting there.

    Went to dinner with my mom and we had a great experience when we ate dinner here. We enjoyed our cocktails and the free crackers/homemade dip. We had the doritoes tots which were awesome. We each had a sandwich- the cold fried chicken and the eggplant burrata and they were very flavorful. The portions are very generous so we took the peanut butter oreo dessert to go. It was outstanding. On top of the great food was our fantastic server. She was so friendly and professional. I would highly recommend this restaurant to those local or visiting.

    So delightful to eat outside again in Innovo’s lovely outdoor dining area! Our server, Keenan, was prompt and eager to give us everything we wanted. Drinks came promptly and it was great to get the warm bread again. I requested my salmon medium rare and the chef nailed it. So delicious with spinach! Many thanks to Keenan and George for another perfect evening at Innovo Kitchen.
