I was invited to Yono's by a friend, the restaurant is high end and fancy, the portions are very small, surprisingly small honestly, but every bite is delicious. The menu has a little bit of everything, my favorite food of all time is lobster bisque and they make an amazing one. As the main course, I ordered the Orecchiette pasta... More

Having eaten at almost all of Chef Yono's creations/re-creations (Robinson Square to Armory Garage [yes, a restaurant in the car dealership] to his latest in the Hampton Inn), he never misses a beat in serving exquisite food with top notch service and attention. The Capital District is lucky to have a man of Yono Purnomo's character and talents, coupled with... More

This restaurant is located in the Hampton Inn and Suites on Chapel Street.Wasn't sure if I would like the cuisine; however, I gave it a try, The Indonesian noodles were stir fried and with just the right amount of spice.

Everything about this restaurant was bad. From the chatty waiter who couldn't stop talking to us and never letting us talk among each other, to the super-extra-small servings, to the plain, dry dessert to the awful parking lot across the street. Just stay clear.

There is no doubt that this is a top notch restaurant. The service is impeccable and the food is inventive and very well presented. The menu might not appeal to everyone , and it might sound too fancy for some palates but once you have eaten here you will be surprised that you have never tried it. It is a... More

My husband and I live in New York City and visit my mom occasionally in Albany. This visit we were celebrating my mom's 86th birthday so we wanted to pick someplace special. The usual offerings in the area have always been adequate, but nothing to write home about. My husband went on Open Table and wondered why we had never... More

Just wonderful. I am not a fancy person so I was worried that I would feel out of place there with my mom. Servers were just awesome...we did not get there until late on a weeknight and it was all just wonderful. Food was unreal! We will for sure be going back and bringing the whole family!

My law partner and senior associate had dinner here on a Monday night prior to a series of meetings the next day. The restaurant was totally empty but for us so we were a little concerned. We were so happy that we selected this restaurant to dine at since it was a total 10 in all ways. The food was... More
