ThIs is the ONLY restaurant in Albany that should really be considered fine dining. It’s in a class all it’s own.

This is Manhattan quality hidden away in the Hampton Inn! Don’t be intimidated by the front of the house; that’s another, more casual option called DP. You emerge from that craziness into a whole new world, on virtually every way. Live music... 5-star Service.... and the most incredible menu you’ve ever experienced.

I recommend the foi gras, the lamb, the duck, the scallops, and the cheesecake (which may be the best I’ve ever had).

Can’t say enough about him w this restaurant stands head and shoulders above the rest of Albany.

Had dined at Yono"s a couple of years ago and it was outstanding. Our experience the other night was not as good. Great appetizers, drinks, bread, dessert , awesome service, but our main course missed the mark. We both ordered the short ribs that were not nearly as good as what we've had at other restaurants. Also the accompaniments, one of which was fried rice, were not good either. The rice was very dry. All said, I would go there again but not order the short ribs.

The only difference between the dinner we had back in July at "Auberge du Soleil" in Napa and our dinner at Yono's was the view. Josh our host and server was exceptional. From appetizers to the main course, Chef/owner Yono Purnomo out did himself. It was an enjoyable meal & evening. We have to stop in on our next trip to Albany. There were to many great looking items on the menu that need to be tasted.

We live in Boston. We were at Yonos ten years ago, we loved it so much, we had to go back. Ten years later the experience was the same. A great experience all around. When most of the staff in still working there, it says something about a business and the owners. Nice job.

From our arrival, Yono's was excellent. Two of us took on the tasting option for the evening. Wow! Indonesian and exciting tastes and textures. Each dish was quite individual, but within the taste range of that culture. We leisurely enjoyed each addition and reveled in the outcomes. We will be back. The menu draws and tempts one to continue the oddessy.

My husband and I recently dined at Yono's to celebrate his birthday, and had a wonderful experience. The waitstaff was attentive and professional, the atmosphere was upscale and the food was incredible. There was also an excellent piano and bass player, which added to the ambiance. The staff went above and beyond with some extra nice touches (a personalized birthday menu and dessert, some champagne for a toast...and even a little stool to put my purse on!)
We would definitely recommend Yono's for a special occasion and would be happy to dine there again.

Yono's is the only place of which I know in the area to get real fine dining in terms of service, food, and wine list. It is also not as expensive as other restaurants of its ilk at which I've dined (unless you for the large tasting menu and premium wine paring), so it is somewhat of a value. For example, the smaller tasting menus (one is neo-French and the other is Indonesian-influenced, and both include amouch-bouche and a complimentary glass of champagne) with the wine parings, along with two orders of oysters (half-dozen each) cost a little more than $200 for two before tax. And, we used a Groupon, which got us $30 off of the bill ($30 for $60 worth of food for two), so the bill was even cheaper. Definitely go.

The first time we had nine people and all declared it to be excellent for both food and service.
This second time there were just two of us and our evaluation is the same....excellent food, excellent service.

We went to Yono's for my birthday and it was amazing. We both had the five-course rijsttafel tasting menu with wine pairings and everything we had was delicious. Service was attentive without being overbearing, and Yono himself made a pass through the dining room toward the end of our meal to ask how everything was. We're looking forward to going back already!
