Perfect in every way! This was the third time I visited Yono's. It is an extraordinary dining spot amidst a sea of mediocre and boring restaurants in Albany. Whenever I am in Albany I make a special visit to Yono's for outstanding quality, taste and service.
Great food, superb service, terrific atmosphere. We'd love to go back again!
Amazing as always! The atomosphere and food can't be topped.
Yono's delivered a fabulous meal and experience once again. We were very impressed with the wine selection and everything from appetizers to dessert was fantastic. I would highly recommend the 24 hour braised short ribs. We also had a great conversation with the sommelier, who happened to share our great taste in music! We love Yono's and will definitely be back.
Phenomenal experience wonderful staff excellent food extremely hospitable made our evening perfect
Yono's is our favorite restaurant. Never, ever disappoints; consistently excellent. The bartenders are awesome too!!
Great place to celebrate anything, even celebrate nothing!
Never disappointed eating at Yono's. Food is amazing and the service is the best. Our favorite Albany restaurant.
It was my girlfriend's birthday and the mood was set brilliantly right from the start. Customized menu with her name on the top. Complementary glasses of champagne to mark the occasion. The food was incredible and the service was spectacular.
We would highly recommend. We will certainly be back.
Yono's is one of Albany's finest restaurants. With wonderful food and an incredible wine list, it is where we go when we want to splurge on truly fine dining. We just celebrated another anniversary there, and were again impressed by everything. The portions are reasonably sized, so we could enjoy a three course dinner spread over 2 1/2 hours.
Woderful dinner. Food was delicious. Wine list great! Service excellent .
Felt like another world when my fiance and I walked in. Very well decorated and romantically themed. The service was superb and the food was exquisite. If your looking for a wonderful time I would highly recommend Yonos!!!
My fiancé and I had a wonderful evening celebrating our engagement. We were greeted with complimentary glasses of champagne and special inserts in their menu. We both had the salmon special which was very delicious and I really enjoyed the vanilla bean crème brûlée. Always a wonderful romantic date night at Yono's.
Best restaurant in Albany hands down. Only place for a truly romantic dinner.
The usual great service was in high gear- that, along with the thoughtful menu, make this our favorite restaurant!
Absolutely awesome experience from start to finish.
The atmosphere is top notch. The wait staff are amazing and very helpful. The food of course is excellent. It has everything you could want in fine dining
Great restaurant! We went for just an average date night but with yono's it was much more than that! We had excellent service from our servers who gave us great advice on the food and wine as well as shared in friendly conversation. The food was spectacular and the chef pays great attention to detail. Everything has its place on the plate. The only thing is that the mean can get pricy but you can help reduce that problem by getting their Groupon which gets you 20$ off basically. This doesn't have to be a "only special occasion" place, just a place you have to spend wisely and probably won't go every week.
We always have great food and fantastic service. We love to go to Yono's or dp's before a play. Great Place!!!
Amazing restaurant! Great food. I enjoy the food. The atmosphere was great as well. Live music and pianist who sings! Beautiful table set up. Accommodates for vegetarians which I appreciate greatly. My friends and I had a great time!
One of the best fine dining meals I've had in a long time, including meals in DC (where I live) and NYC. The wine pairing was phenomenally coordinated with the food. There was a glass with each of the 8 courses, and my husband and I shared one pairing which was more than enough for us occasional drinkers. The 8 courses were each perfectly prepared and seasoned and well-balanced. Nothing was too heavy, and the serving sizes were adjusted appropriately. We left very satisfied but not feeling like gluttons. On a side note, the chef has a real talent with carrots!
My parents were visiting from out of town. We wanted to go to a fancy dinner.
We got what we wanted. The menu was interesting and fun. The service was excellent.
It was an excellent (although a bit pricy) meal.
From the moment we walked in we knew we were going to have a great dinner experience. Yono's will not let you down. The staff is genuinely knowledgeable and friendly. The presentation is magnificent and they really make your night extraordinary with their special touches catered to your special occasion. They provided a complimentary champagne toast, and a special birthday wish that was written directly by name in the Menu as well as in chocolate when the desert came. It was superior to any that we have ever experienced. Thank you Chef and owner Mr. Yono for coming to our table to ensure our satisfaction. It is clear you know what you are doing! What a delightful find this was. We will be back! Thank you Yono's!
Yono's has a reputation as one of the best high-end restaurants in town. They have been in business for more than 20 years, and their executive chef has won many awards. We went there expecting to see a variety of Indonesian-influenced items, since that is where Yono is from. Instead we found fairly generic meat and seafood fare, with little reference to Asia (a few appetizers seemed to have Indonesian roots). Our service was very professional, although we had to ask for bread, which they finally brought when we were done eating our entrees. The wine menu is probably the best in this area. The chocolate mousse cake dessert was also quite delicious, though quite diminutive. Mainly, though, we just felt the food wasn't good enough to justify the prices. My $34 duck was tasty enough, but not more special than a duck I've had elsewhere for under $25. My girlfriend's scallops dish was ridiculous, though -- three sea scallops for $38, with barely any vegetable and just a tiny bit of sauce underneath. One should never have to leave a $140 dinner feeling hungry --- but this was the case for her. Are scallops so expensive you can't put four or five on a plate, with enough sides to fill a person? And while they were well prepared-- it's hard to ruin a scallop -- they certainly weren't better than scallops we've had elsewhere for half the price. The $14 dessert was certainly a nice way to end the night. But it was hardly remarkable, and it was also tiny. You get four times the slice for half the price at Cheesecake Factory. As my girlfriend said, "The emperor has no clothes." We won't be back -- there's just no reason to spend that much when there's so many good restaurants in Albany that charge more reasonably.
Our party of four loved the 5 course Indonesian tasting menu with wine pairings. Every aspect of the meal was superb. The staff was professional, knowledgeable and accommodating.
The suggested dessert was bananas foster. Two of us do not like bananas so we were free to choose from the dessert menu. Picking a favorite from the soup, the chopped salad, the meat course, the dessert or the appetizer would be like trying to pick a favorite child. We look forward to returning.
We had a wonderful dinner at Yono's!!!! The food, the service, the atmosphere were all amazing. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone. We had the Indonesian tasting menu and every bite was delicious!
Excellent ambiance, service, food and music. Lowlighting. Exclusive dining.
Absolutely love the food!!! Me and my family had a dinner at Yono's and we LOVE the environment. Our server was josh(I think?). He was there whenever we needed help, and he also gave good recommendations. I will definitely revisit this place if we have a chance!
We had a great evening out at Yono's, beautiful room, great atmosphere, excellent service and the food was amazing. We will be back.
Over rated, very expensive and not worth it! All too precious and waiters over explaining everywhere! Made us very uncomfortable !
Fantastic dinner. Ambiance with live piano. Both appetizers and entrees were excellent, and the wine selection is incredible.
The service was impeccable. There was a good variety of choices for the main entree'.
Nice restaurant, however very expensive and the portions are ridiculously small.
Food and service was excellent as always. I ordered my favorite dish, beef shirt rib rendang, which is always so delicious and satisfying. Bread pudding dessert was also very tasty.
wait staff overly solicitous, duck was underdone. Very small Salad was expensive.
You would have to go to New York City to get a better meal!
Yono's continues to please! Great atmosphere, scrumptious food and a staff that knows the real meaning of top notch service.
$$$ but if you have it, it's worth it. Excellent.
Never a disappointment!! We've gone 2-3 times a year for the last 5 years, and there's always something different on the menu. Tasting menus with wine pairings are our go to.
We had a great dinner. The food was excellent and the staff was friendly and very helpful
