Service was terrible, food was terrible and we were out where there were no lights or fire, even though we had made outside reservations.

10/17 was our first time going out to eat indoors since covid. All the workers followed guidance, the food was great as usual. If you're hesitant about going out to eat indoors w Covid, highly recommend YOLO. Great job and glad to be back inside!

The scallop appetizer was not with 17.00. The scallops were small but did taste good.

The heated outdoor patio drew us to fine out in Covid times .
Our waitress, Alexis delivered outstanding service. From the warm bread and butter, every course was prepared to our liking and served promptly. Soft drinks and ice tea were refilled without having to ask. A great local place to frequent and difficult times

Yolo did a great job seating us quickly and keeping tables distanced. Patio is covered and had a nice breeze which was good. Our server was friendly and helpful and attentive. Even with a mask on! Spicy margaritas were delish and priced right. Our stuffed mushroom app so yummy. I had the chopped salad~ it was good but the bacon didn't taste the same as it has in the past? Daughter had the steak salad~ very large piece of steak on top.. almost too much when you just want a light salad. Overall, we always enjoy dining at Yolo~ we will be back!

The food was poor. Tuna dinner ordered medium was very red, almost raw. Haddock dinner stuffing had a very fishy smell...might have been old

It's been a while since we've been out at a restaurant, and what a great place to start! The food was excellent, and service impeccable...... Our waitress, Alexis was awesome!!!! So sweet, and patient..... Entertaining too.. The entire dining experience from the hostess, to the bartenders, to the wait staff, and even the owner(who stopped by to check on us) were so worth stepping out of our newly found comfort zone, since the pandemic (and they were following all safety precautions). Highly recommend (and we will be back soon)!

We had an early evening out so we could social distance. The patio set up was great, comfortable and well spaced. We felt safe while drinking our first martini's out in 5 months. Burgers, steak sandwich were all good, fries where again the first in 5 months.

Great food but if there are 2 couples at the dinner table and both have coupons your restaurant should take both coupons when the 2 couples have separate checks.

Valentine’s Day dinner. We were a little late (I called And let the restaurant know I was running late) and the staff was more than accommodating. Great experience. Food was amazing. Grilled shrimp quesadillas were unreal. Our server Sally was very helpful also.

We have frequented YOLO numerous times and always had a great experience. This time, not so much. Crab cake appetizers were cold and so were the mashed potatoes with the main course. It was Valentine's Day, but we were seated and out the door 45 minutes. Not the relaxing experience I was looking for.
