YOLO Restaurant & Lounge
Dinner 4pm-10pm Daily
Food was average and nothing was actually hot to the temperature. Ambiance is great but noise level is a bit much.
Service was great though.
Food was very good. Had salmon, ahi tuna, and the special pork chop which was very tasty. Portions were fair. Service was great. Overall experience was fun with good food. No complaints.
The Salmon Neptune is amazing. The asparagus accompanying it is the best cooked and most flavorful that I have ever had in a restaurant. I also love the smoked Manhattan as a pre-dinner cocktail - very creative to have it smoking at the table with a nice wooden aroma.
Went for on Saturday for restaurant week. Ordered the salmon dish. Fish was good but a very small helping of salmon. When I asked the waiter about the size, he said that they are all weighed equally. Does that mean everyone gets a small piece of fish? My wife had the risotto which was obviously made ahead of time because it was very gloppy. I understand that it was restaurant week at special prices, but I thought that this is a week to show off their menus to new and existing customers, not give less food on the plate so they make more money.
our first visit prompted by "Restaurant Week" menu, it was a wonderful selection and portion size was perfect, we really enjoyed it
The evening for resturant week was very busy, but the food and staff made us feel like we counted. Will go again.
Food was tasty but cold
Delightful restaurant. Beautiful decor. Wait staff was well informed and service was wonderful. The food was delicious, brought to us in a timely manner and reasonably priced.
Never had a bad meal at Yolo! The food is top notch and the wings are some of the best I've ever had in Buffalo. Super friendly bartender, owner, and staff that always make you feel welcome. Generous food portions and excellent cocktails...you can't go wrong.
Went for restaurant week, so worth it! Service was excellent, dinner was great and the $5 Happy Hour glass of wine was more than acceptable. All around pleasant dining experience!
We were a group of three women eating together. Two of us started with a salad. The Caesar salad was a hit, the pear goat cheese salad was a bit on the sweet side. Two of us had hamburgers which were delicious and cooked the way that we ordered them. One of us had the seafood salad sandwich. It was a bit boring. We shared an order of fried mushrooms. They were pretty good, but the batter didn't stay on them. This was my first time to eat dinner there. I'd try it again. I've been there for Sunday brunch and really enjoyed my meal.
I can see why we were the only ppl there for lunch. Sent our food back and our drinks. Had an appetiser instead of hummus and salsa etc
We love the service and plan on coming back. WE heard about from friends so we decided to see for our selves and we are very glad we did the food we ordered was A-one and the desert was fab 5 keep up the good work.
Went with wife had a blast the food was great drink were amazing after dinner we ended up at the bar with friends and the owner was very friendly.
Wonderful menu/fabulous server/delicious meal
There were four of us. Food was disappointing for two of us, who had the same meal. The other meals were good but not exceptional.
Great food! Went for brunch before the Bills game! Will be back soon!
Consistent great food . Upscale and current . I always recommend this restaurant to our out of town friends and they give it a thumbs up !
Very very good food and service.
Unfortunately, this is the very first thing we see as we approached the front entrance to the restaurant.
Great food as always and excellent service
Rom beginning to end our experience in this local restaurant was perfect. The drink recommendation was right on. The food was prepared to our liking, seasoned perfectly. And of course, dessert was worth every calorie.
One of our favorite restaurants. This evening we ordered appetizers to sample the chef's creativity. Do not miss the Mediterranean Platter, the Calamari and Meat Lover's Flatbread. Service was attentive and noise level allowed conversation. Highly recommended since we have had entrees in the past.
Our Book Club met at Yolo's for dinner, so you had five hungry ladies with different tastes/orders. We were able to sit outside on a beautiful summer evening. Our server was so attentive and patient; he answered all of our questions and checked in periodically. The food was excellent! We were all very happy with our choices: Cobb Salad, Apricot Orange Chicken Skewers, Stuffed Myshrooms, two different pork plates, and a Salmon special. No one was disappointed; we would definitely go back!
We love YOLOs!!! The food is great and the prices are reasonable. Justin and his stafff are friendly and accommodating! You have to try the specials!!
We went there for Father's Day brunch. Hostess was friendly and seated us promptly at the reserved time. The restaurant was NOT crowded. There was one large table with children and maybe three other 4 tops near us. We placed drink orders and they were served promptly and were good. The food, however, took WAY too long. The server apologized and said it was because of the large party in the other room (there were maybe 8-10 people). My Mother and I ordered eggs benedict with crab cakes. The crab cakes weren't edible as they were so salty it was hard to enjoy even a little bite. There was no discernable crab in them which would justify the $4.50 upcharge! When I told the server she said "sorry" and she would tell the chef. I think the appropriate thing to do would be to remove the upcharge since we couldn't eat them. So for over 18$ we had eggs benedict...that were fair at best. My Father enjoyed his steak and eggs and my brother in law enjoyed his steak sandwich.
This is my go-to restaurant for wonderful food, great quality and nice service. Food is always of the highest quality and perfectly prepared. Menu has enough variety for everyone. Highly recommended.
Delicious as always! Wonderful service all around Accommodated our gluten free requests easily.
Great food, great service and delicious chocolate martinis!!
A group of friends who hadn’t seen each other for a few years got together for dinner here. We had a great time! Our waiter was kind and patient with us - we took forever ordering because we couldn’t stop talking. We arrived at 6 and stayed until closing. The staff was very accommodating to us. We will definitely return!
First time there and pleasantly surprised by the varied menu. Arancini appetizer was very good and both entrees, scallops over rice or risotto and my pork chop with peaches and walnuts were well prepared. To be real picky the dishes were not real hot when served but not too cool.. I will definitely return
Sat on the Patio. It was awesome!
Food was very good , mine could have been warmer though ! A little loud for 4 people trying to carry on conversation but overall a good experience.There was an additional charge because I did not want potatoes & wanted green beans.Thought that was not necessary .
Great food and excellent service . I have been numerous times and have never had a bad meal.
The food was outstanding as usual and service was great
We've been dining here pretty regularly for several years and continue to enjoy it. The owner is usually there and is very personable. The food is always delicious whether for lunch, dinner, or brunch -- salads, banana peppers, salmon, french toast, and even the fries are excellent. (Full disclosure, though, my least favorite dish over the years is the mac 'n cheese). The "Chef's Creation" dessert for Mother's Day was Creamsicle Cake....amazing! Service is very good and prices are reasonable. I definitely recommend!
YOLO is one of our "go to" places. Love the menu, and the service is so consistent. We will continue to be regulars.
The menu choices were varied. Our food arrived and was presented beautifully. It was delicious and we will go back. Good service.
My friends and I all enjoyed our first visit to YOLO during restaurant week. The coconut shrimp appetizer was not deep fried or overly sweet. They had a light coconut flavor and were perfectly cooked. All 3 entrees (chicken, steak, salmon) were delicious with different, interesting flavor combinations. Our server told us he had been there since the restaurant opened. That is also a good sign when a business retains their great, professional employees.
We all agreed that we would like to go back to try more cocktails and great food.
My first time there!
Great atmosphere , excellent presentation and food quality ~steak was cooked to perfection. Terrific customer service, nice to see owner presence with the customers as well!
Highly recommend !
