Best meatloaf dinner I ever had, was on their daily special. The remodel is really nice and nice. Always a good time here.
Thank you Keith we really appreciate the 5 stars and are very glad that you enjoyed one of our specials! We will have new ones next week so be sure to stop back in to try them out! Justin Bingel (Owner)
Very sharp new decor! Very Delicious food as always. Great experience with new server Zachary. He made us feel very welcome and not rushed!
Thank you for the kind words, it means everything to us! We are glad that you enjoyed and a new server made you feel welcomed! Hope to see you again sometime soon! Justin Bingel (Owner)
A little loud, next time will request front room and hopefully it’ll be easier to hear others at the table. Good and service were good
Thank you for your 5 stars it means everything to us! The front room is much quieter and you can request to sit in there when you make a reservation! Thank you again, Justin Bingel (Owner)
Very nicely decorated, cozy, with friendly staff.
Thank you for your complements we appreciate them very much! We hope to have you back to dine with us soon! Justin Bingel (Owner)
We have dined here a number of times in the past and were always satisfied. Our last visit was last March and decided not to return since our favorite dishes were no longer enjoyable, eg really tough meat.
Over the summer, they closed to redecorate and retool the menu, so, deserved another try. Very glad we did! From the cocktails to the entrees, everything was excellent. Great martini (not watered down like many other places), great appetizer (Mediterranean Spread Platter), Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich was outstanding.
We appreciate the kind words! Thank you for giving us another try, we are always trying to be the best version of ourselves and receiving a 5 star rating makes us feel like we are! Justin Bingel (Owner)
fantastic dinner on the beautiful patio!! service was awesome and the berry BBQ salmon was delicious!! will absolutely be back!!
Thank you for the 5 star rating we look forward to having you back again soon! Justin Bingel (Owner)

Thank you Tracey we appreciate the kind words and the 5 star rating!! Justin Bingel (Owner)
The new décor and ambience at the restaurant is fabulous! The menu is great, as always, and the food fantastic.
The updated space is wonderful! Food and drinks delicious!
Great dinner and love the new renovations, YOLO is looking great!
Beautiful space with great staff and fantastic food! This is our go to spot for a sit down dinner or drinks and apps at the bar with friends!
We happened to be there on their grand re-opening celebration. It was exciting to see all the activity and hoopla, and since I gave it a moderate rating for noise that may have been because of the celebration. The food was very good and the menu diverse enough for all wallets, from burgers to steak. The service was efficient and friendly. I will definitely go back and would recommend to friends.
1st time there..food was the best I have ever had!!! So GOOD! had a wonderful meal..great service ..food ...and cocktails highly recommend
Excellent entrees and service. Outdoor patio very much a parking lot feel. Beer menu very restricted unless you prefer IPAs.
One of 1st tables served for dinner service. Floors dirty, specials not available, kitchen changed sides without notification, crab smelled bad, some food on plate cold.
Nice server but 1st visit will be my last.
My wife and I both tried the cordon blue burger, one of the night's specials, and they were great. Hope they make this a regular item on the menu. Our server was very good, as well as friendly, although she admitted being a little nervous as she was quite new.
It is always a wonderful dinner with great service.
Wasn't sure what to expect, never been here. Was blown away by the vibe and the fantastic food. Will definitely be back!
The mushroom cap appetizer was very tasty. My filet was done perfectly. My husband's Cioppino was full of seafood. The staff was attentive without being intrusive. A wonderful date night for us. We liked the virtual menu, no germ transmission. Staff sanitized table and chairs between diners.
Food is always great and service is second to none
Our server, Ashley, was professional and friendly. Entrees were well prepared and beautifully presented. Wine list could use some expansion.
Had a nice dinner out on the patio with friends. Food was very good. Ordered the Nashville Hot Chicken and it came out just like the genuine article I've enjoyed in Nashville. Can't remember what others had but everyone enjoyed their choices. Have been to Yolo many times and always enjoyed it. We'll be back again.
The food and atmosphere was lovely. The service was top notch!
So, nothing is perfect, but this was close. Our waitperson, Ashley, was personable and efficient. Great food.
Great food…my wife and the special and it was great. Our server picked the pork chop for me and it was spectacular.
Date night, grandma helped watch the kiddos! We got lucky with a little surprise too from the owner!
Service was great and atmosphere. Crab cakes were dry and crab stuffed haddock was also dry . Drinks were very good
The service and selection of food on the menu was awesome. My appetizer came with a crab cake which was breaded and had a lot of filler, which was disappointing having lived in MD for over 20 years and knowing what a crab cake should be. That was the only low point in the whole experience. I look forward to going back to try more of their menu.
My friend and I had an outstanding experience at Yolo. Our server was fantastic. The food (perfectly portioned) and drink were great. We hadn't seen each other in over a year and ended up saying for over three hours talking and never felt pressured to leave (we would have certainly left if it was extremely busy). Overall great experience and I will be back for sure.
We were fortunate to get a table at 6:30 on a Friday. We ordered drinks, crab stuffed haddock and bbq salmon. Everything was perfect. They were down a bartender because someone called off but the server did her best to accommodate and was great. The setting was lively enough but we could converse without raising our voice, which is a huge plus for us. We’ll definitely be back!
First time back in YOLOs since early 2020, although we have ordered Takeout a number of times. Ordered our favorite meals, everything was as good or better as our last in restaurant experience there. We’ll be back soon!!!!
My wife and I had a wonderful experience. The food was outstanding. The atmosphere perfect. Our server, Anna, was amazing. I would definitely recommend for a truly wonderful dining experience.
Quality food, well prepared, great cocktail menu. A little pricey.
YOLO has been a favorite of mine since they opened. The atmosphere is great and the food has consistently also been great. The cocktail menu is fabulous. I always have enjoyed my visit to YOLO and will continue to frequent this restaurant. Highly recommend.
Our experience at Yolo was very good. The service was excellent, the food was tasty, and presented well. The ambiance was perfect - we sat outside, and thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
Friendly and efficient service. Food was very good overall except the fries tasted a little like the oil had had fish in it.
We got the Justin Sampler with stuffed mushrooms, crab cakes and a stuffed banana pepper. Crab cakes were not homemade and mostly breading. Mushrooms were all cheese and bland and the pepper was almost mostly cheese and super hot. My girlfriend couldn't even eat hers.
"Smash" burger was thick and not much flavor and the chicken cobb salad was very small for an entree salad.
Overall just not impressed at all. So many better places to go out there.
They dropped one of our meals and should have offered a drink or something to the person in our party that has to wait
