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." In doing this, people feel comfortable when reading his menus and do not feel as if they need to be a chef themselves to understand it.

Food was great as always. Superb service given how busy it was. Perfect night for dining on the patio.
Service and food was excellent as always, especially the lobster rolls and the lemon cheesecake.
Mary was a great waitress! Patio was fantastic and food delicious.
Food was fine. Always consistent.
We chose this restaurant based on previous (pre-pandemic) dining experiences (always different and tasty) and fir the fact that they had open air dining (both a patio and indoor seating that was open to outdoor air). Again, the food did NOT disappoint! We shared multiple dishes and both HIGHLY recommend the Stuffed Anaheim Pepper (loved the slow heat of it) and Farmer Bob’s Tomato Sandwich with thickly cut heirloom tomatoes and an English muffin bread that isn’t hard or tough but substantial enough to stand up to the tomatoes and mayonnaise. We also both loved the Chilled Beef Tenderloin Sliders - BEAUTIFUL slices of tenderloin, SO much flavor! I thoroughly enjoyed the Strawberry Jam Lemonade vodka (you don’t see the strawberries but you taste them!). The service was excellent from start to finish (thank you, Gary!). This place never disappoints - do yourself a favor and go!
Food was excellent as usual. Service was a bit slow; not our typical experience here.
Nice service, excellent food, reasonable prices - a good place to meet.
Bit noisy and a bit too pricey for a Hot Dog. Oh well, I still love it and will return. Service A+++
Arrived and luckily we use open table because otherwise you had to sit at the bar. We enjoyed the menu and all the selected food options. Wait staff was nice but short and to the point almost rude but being in the business I know what it’s like when booked solid
Delicious updates to menu from winter.
Took a group of coworkers there for dinner, it was phenomenal. The food was hot, flavorful, and the service was top-notch!
Some new menu items and specials made me very happy. Three of us had a delicious lunch on the patio.
Always an interesting menu in a great atmosphere. Even if you are seated “inside”, with the large garage style doors open it is like being outside.
Food was excellent and our waitress did a great job bouncing between all her tables, including a large party in the private room.
Innovo is always a great place to eat. Though idk why some of the drink options don't make sense to me. No Regular lemonade but have pink? Strange, can do a regular cappuccino but not a mocha. Just little things. Also they really skimp on the chocolates they used to give out. One tiny small piece each? C'mon used to be a couple decent sized ones.
Food is always delicious. Only real comment I have is that we were first greeted by one server that told us his name, and explained he'd fill waters, take drink orders and be back to take food orders. Then never showed up again. Another server came to our table, never introduced herself and made it seem like it was chore to take our orders and was anxious to get us done and out. I realize it is different personalities and that finding good help is hard, so I just wanted to share, that perhaps all servers might need to be encouraged to be communicative (introduce themselves, explain that she just picked up our table, etc.) and not appear to be rushing a party thru their meal.
Love the Sun Brunch- best pork belly from non Asian restaurant- egg Benedict with pancetta was out of this world- can’t wait for next weeks brunch- service was spectacular!!
The food was great but for $18-21 for a burger it aught to be. The service was very good and staff seemed to really know the menu.
Mary was very attentive and accommodating. The food was well prepared and everyone liked their entrees. Seafood Friday is a favorite of ours.
Had a great experience our waitress was very nice and attentive food was great
Great food. Friendly staff. We really enjoyed ourselves, Mom, dad and the kids and it is hard to impress teenagers.
Food and drink were excellent as was the service. Went there for a date and was very noisy, so it was difficult to have a conversation.
Not as good as I expected it to be. Fish in the Tacos was over breaded and reminded me of frozen box fish sticks
Outside dinning done well. Tried the hot dogs,super!
Great menu variety has something for absolutely everyone. Tasty, interesting starters and entrees. WE ate on the beautiful patio, which filled up and got pretty loud by about 7pm. Lots of flat surfaces inside echoed outside and sometimes made conversations difficult.
Friendly attentive service.
Amazing food as I remember. So glad I was back in town again and able to get in. Server was great even though manager made us feel rushed. Ordered takeout next night and met owner at pickup - she sealed the deal for me to become a regular customer when in town and revise rating to add comments.
Went there for brunch with a friend and the menu looked amazing. it was a hard choice but my friend and I went with the Chorizo Bake and Lobster Benny. Both were amazing!
This was my 2nd visit to Innovo Kitchen. The first occurred prior to the COVID shutdown. I and my dining companions enjoyed the food we ordered. The waiter was very attentive, friendly, and approachable.
Food was good, service great. It was very noisy and we were sitting outside.
The lamb lollipops and calamari were delicious. Hands down, the best calamari I have had anywhere. Lamb burger was, as usual, cooked to perfection. This week our waitress was Crystal. She was cheerful, helpful, knowledgeable about every dish we asked her about, and gave us excellent advice. Last night, Crystal helped make our experience at Innovo one of the best we have had.
Food and service were excellent! Lovely outdoor dining area!
Excellent service and delicious dinners. It was perfect!
Server was very attentive and polite. Salads were very good.
Awesome, Awesome, Awesome, Awesome, Awesome did I say it was AWESOME!!!
Nice ambiance. I wish the was more audible music. It was loud, but with voices not with music.
Service was outstanding! The food is good but pricey.. the guest I brought was in the mood for a warm sandwich.. not many choices on a warm sandwhich other than a burger and something seafood. Great atmosphere..
The food is so different & delicious! We love it!
The patio dining option was perfect. The food was delicious - as always.
Exceptionally slow service. Reasonable food. Will not be back.
