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.
Gigi was our server and she was amazing!!!! Extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. We’ll definitely be back.....again. 🙏🏾
Food was good but not much of it. Waiters were very friendly and helpful.
Best restaurant I have been to in years. Food was amazing. Staff friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating. Atmosphere was elegant but comfortable.
Simply Wonderful! Innovative fusion cuisine- Indonesian and Continental/American. Great mix of tastes and textures. Excellent and extensive wine list. Wonderful service - friendly and knowledgeable. Very nice ambiance. Best restaurant in Albany Capitol Region! Will certainly be back again.
Everyone loved their chosen entree. The service was exemplary. Few thought the portions were a bit small.
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.
Birthday dinner made memorable by Chef Yono and Co.! GiGi, Josh and the whole crew were on top of their game... can’t wait to return.
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.
Had a wonderful dinner! Our server Josh was top notch and very attentive.
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.
Without question the best dining experience in upstate NY. Nothing else like it in terms of real gourmet dining. The wine cellar has over 2,000 bottles in stock with an amazing variety of selections.
one of the best meals we've had while dining out, service was outstanding and the only reason I gave ambiance a 4 not a 5 was because we sat right near the kitchen door.
Our special occasion restaurant in the region. Never disappoints. Excellent and imaginative food and top notch service.
We enjoyed a traditional tasting menu with the suggested wine pairings. Service was flawless and we were never rushed.
The place was absolutely beautiful. Great service and amazing food! Kind of pricey but it was definitely worth it. Perfect for a date night or special occasion. I definitely will be going again!
Great service and food as usual.
Best scallops we've ever had. Vey attwntive service.
Wonderful experience from the service to the food to the ambiance. A great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion or just to feel special.
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.
Great as alway
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.
A dining experience. The service can't be beat. The wait staff are very attentive. The Indonesian and Continental options are unique and delicious. The ambiance is upscale and elegant. There is often a special appetizer for your delights.
My wife and I met friends for dinner at this wonderful restaurant on January 20. Everything was excellent, the food, the wine, the service and the ambiance. We couldn't be happier with the experience and will be back again. If you are looking for one of the best fine dining experiences in Albany experience Yono's, you won't be disappointed.
Our experience was outstanding. The food, the service, and the ambiance were terrific. The tasting menu is in our future!
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.
I frequently patronize the bar cafe but only twice have is dined at the inner restaurant.
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 have been there a number of times before. The service was excellent. The food not so good. The portions were small and the food was not as good as the other times we had been there
The food was excellent, a diverse yet refined menu. The service was polished, warm and very attentive. The jazz duo was the perfect combo of relaxing and entertaining, set a chill vibe.
Really nice restaurant. Excellent food and service. They went above and beyond for our anniversary dinner.
Yono's is the only restaurant of its kind in the Albany, NY region. It is elegant and the food is outstanding. the ambience at other high-end restaurants does not stand up to Yono's. We are lucky to have such a resource in the Capital region.
Yono’ Restaurant is a fabulous, quality restaurant. Waitstaff is attentive, cordial and knowledgeable on menu and wines. Our main Waiter Adam was helpful with recommendations on our dinner choices and wine pairings.
Fine dining at its best! You will always be treated like royalty .
A spectacular meal from beginning to end. Well worth the price to eat a meal that I'd never be able to make myself as the talent of the chefs is amazing.
Perfect to celebrate a special occasion. You are treated very special.
The food is fabulous. The wait staff is very attentive.
We have a new family tradition.Going to Yono's for the Christmas holiday.The staff is so welcoming and excellent at what they do.The food was so delicious mane came out at a timely manner.I highly recommend Yono's for any occasion.5 Star dining.
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!
great food! a nice fine dining experience. I had a great time with my family for a birthday dinner.
A very elagant setting with a bevy of knowledgeable waiters and stewards, Yono’s made every effort to make a birthday celebration not just enjoyable but memorable. The staff is excellent, and dining experience is one of the best in the region.
The food presentation was gorgeous and the food was tasty. Most of all the service was excellent. Wish we had more time to splurge on such high quality options for dinner!
