Chef John LaPosta has had a long and exciting career path which has landed him in the restaurant of his dreams. Along with his partner, Tina Kruger, he has created a wonderful American Gastropub full of great energy, fine hospitality, and of course, outstanding food.

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. Inspired food and service in an unassuming manner with outstanding hospitality!

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!

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

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.

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.

Not as good as I expected it to be. Fish in the Tacos was over breaded and reminded me of frozen box fish sticks

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.

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.

Not a typical innovo experience- we are frequent diners and were quite disappointed- service was poor - out of items on the menu- it took nearly an hour for us to get our food. The usual oversight of the front of the house was not there - perhaps that explains the experience- we like the restaurant and the food is always delicious so we’ll be back and hopefully next time it’s what we’ve come to expect from innovo.
