It is his passion for excellence, beaming hospitality and tireless work that have been the hallmarks of John's 30+ years as one of the Capital Region’s most popular chefs. He is known for his outstanding food that he serves to "real" people in a fun and unassuming style. His simple philosophy has always been "put the love on plate."

Many different size and price points for meals. Interesting food. Everything was well prepared, delicious and generous portions. Service was great and flowed smoothly.
We went for brunch , had the Avocado toast and husband had the brisket hash. Both outstanding, we had a mimosa and a Bloody Mary which we very good also . Will go a little later next time because the burgers and sandwiches looked good too....
Great atmosphere and knowledgeable waitstaff made this a very enjoyable evening with friends
Absolutely recommend! Food was delicious and our server was very friendly and accommodating. :)
Innovo is one of our favorite places to have a good meal.
Unique menu items and a wonderful, friendly, helpful server. Great atmosphere too.
Food was fantastic, service was amazing. Very attentive wAiter!
Service was professional, caring and at appropriate level. Noise level/echo makes it difficult to talk without yelling.
I made my reservation via the open table app and arrived a few minutes early and the friendly staff accommodated. The service was attentive and informing about last minute changes in the menu. The food arrived quick and was delicious as usual. Objectively, the place was a little loud but wouldn’t distract me not to return.
Brunch was great, but while eating our table was asked about 5 times if we were done and if they could take our plates,which we weren't. We were only there about an hour and it seemed like we were being rushed out and the manager was circling the table waiting for us to leave. We probably won't be going back any time soon.
Food and service is wonderful, but we were put in the side room with a very noisy large group of people and I could hardly hear my husband. It was so loud. For the money you pay to eat here, you should be able to speak to your partner without yelling.
The service was very good since the restaurant was very busy and every table was packed. The prices were very good for the food. We enjoyed our time there.
This was our second visit. Food was good. Felt that delivery of our drink order was a bit delayed. Seemed very loud that might have been because our table was in the center up front. If we come back would like to try a table not in the center.
Great birthday meal in a fun place with great service
Hostess was very welcoming and our table was available right when we got there. Our waiter was great and very funny. Food came out quickly and was absolutely delicious. Never had a bad meal here. Really enjoy Innovo Kitchen.
Many new delicious options on the brunch menu!
Really enjoyed brunch on Sunday. Waiter was attentive and food was delicious
Always a good meal at Innovo.
Dinner and service was excellent! A very enjoyable evening- thank you!
Food was very good, as was our server Vinny. I always find the room loud and echo-ey which inhibits conversation.
Innovo Kitchen is outstanding! We are always delighted with the inspired menu, exceptional service and great vibe. It’s our go to spot!
Amazing! We will be back !
It was excellent- music was way too loud.
Food and Service was spectacular, great atmosphere and classy. Menu was somewhat limiting but the tables are much too close together. You may as well invite strangers to dine with you because you’re literally sitting right next to the nearest table. Would not revisit or recommend to a friend. Noise level also high for such a small place.
The food at Innovo I consistently good. The service was attentive. The noise level is usually loud. Overall good experience even on a busy holiday. Always recommend.
Food was decent but overpriced. Restaurant was incredibly loud and the service sucked.
Too noisy, food was good but nothing special
We recently discovered Innovo Kitchen and have been there 3 times in the last 2 weeks with the most recent being there for my wife’s birthday.
Great happy hour specials, great food, friendly attentive staff.
Looking forward to returning soon.
This was not my first visit to innovo, and I would consider myself a regular visitor of the restaurant as well. I was extremely dissatisfied by the service that I received during my visit and I will more likely than not be coming back. Our waitress was rude and made an inappropriate comment to me regarding my race and it was extremely uncomfortable not only for me but for the rest of the table. I believe her name was Cassandra, however I cannot remember for sure. I have never had a bad experience with a server or in general so I was extremely disappointed in my experience the other day.
Waitress was awesome.
Food and service were great as usual!
Another delicious and enjoyable meal at Innovo Kitchen! Our server, George, was spot on and always there when we wanted him. Drinks came right away and he gave us time to catch up a bit before ordering. The Kale Salad is so good. A perfect blend of sweet and savory. The Maine Salmon preparation is good, although some of the accompanying vegetables were not cooked enough to eat easily. But we always enjoy going to Innovo, and we’ll certainly be back soon!
The experience last night was quite surprising, I had only been here for lunch. Dinner was outstanding, the choices were plentiful and difficult to choose as it all looked very good.
The waiter was outstanding, always attentive, never bothersome and was quick with a recommendation for an excellent meal.
I highly recommend the scallops, very tasty dish.
Food and service was great but towards the end of the night we were catching up and it felt like we were being pushed out- it was not busy or near closing time. Just felt rushed out
Wonderful experience every time!
The mushroom barley soup was delicious on a cold winter night!
Would recommend it for the food, which was delicious. I would also tell a friend NOT to go on a Friday night. We were seated close to the bar and could hardly talk to each other without shouting. Not a pleasant experience at all. Also, it was very chilly, sitting near the glass doors, which I assume they open in the nicer weather. Would try it again either for lunch or on a weeknight, and try to sit farther away from the bar.
Wonderful as always!
I wish I could remember our server's name, she was lovely. This wasn't our first visit and it certainly isn't our last. Always a pleasure dinning there.
