This is a family favorite. My mother loves it because it's fancy (they gave her a velvet stool for her purse, she's in love), my siblings and I love it because it's delicious. First of all, where else will they repeatedly bring you a giant...More

Splurge on the tasting with the premium wine pairing. Course of scrumptious course in a Belle Epoch setting. You enter through a bar room , wondering what the bus is all about, until they usher you through double doors into a magical setting.

Will try the tasting menu next time. Some of the prices at a bit steep, for instance the tenderloin...More

We’ve been dining at Yono’s since 1987, and every dinner is special. The dishes are exquisite and beautifully presented. Service is gracious and attentive, never stuffy. Definitely the classiest restaurant in the Capital District.
