YOLO Restaurant & Lounge
We were there for Valentines Day dinner (one night later due to family events on the actual day) and YOLO didn’t disappoint us. The food was great, the ambiance was perfect. The service was awesome. And it was very refreshing to be able to have a conversation without having to shout at each other to be heard over the din. A great place for dinner with your significant other.
Food and service was great. 1/2 price bottles of wine on Valentine’s Day was a pleasant surprise. We had a great time
The arancini was very good. I had the filet and shrimp. The filet was cooked perfectly and so were the shrimp. I could have used less of the cajun sauce but all in all very good meal.
YOLO is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. We were able to share it with friends who enjoyed it as much as we do. You can never go wrong ordering a hamburger with fries. Their specials are always worth trying.
5 of our group of 6 LOVED their food, prices reasonable, great choices and fantastic service. Seated right away. Very cozy!!
YOLO was great for food, ambiance and wine. our service was fantastic!
Excellent food! Awesome service
Nice looking place and pleasant, attentive wait staff. Good bar choices. But the food was mediocre at best.
Both had fish entrees, Mahi was fishy and (supposedly) BBQ salmon was dry with oily/crusty exterior as if fried
Advertise the Mediterranean app spread as “gluten free possible” but their solution was “don’t eat the pita”. No actual GF bread or crackers even
Very accommodating on a busy holiday night, but food was overcooked and dry. Will try again!
We’ve been to Yolo many times. The food is always outstanding. We love the atmosphere; great for any occasion.
Interesting menu and good quality food. Good choice for a full dinner as well as just appetizers at the bar!
Excellent food and service!
High quality food and great service as usual. The Salmon Neptune and crab cakes were well prepared just as they were the last time I was here. The servers are always friendly.
Food was good but service was poor. Seemed like most of the staff wasn’t enjoying their work.
We had an excellent evening at YOLO. Great food and wonderful service. We’ll go back soon!
You wouldn't think you would have such a great restaurant at an non-descript strip mall but you're missing something great. Really great service and even better food. Highly recommended. We'll be back often.
What makes the experience is the food and the service. The menu shows the skills of a season chef who knows how to pair flavors and textures. Each part of the meal from appetizer, salad, entree, and dessert was a delight. The service was nice in that she was attentive but not overbearing.
They have done what they can with a strip mall space with a hip and trendy decor. Yolo was great and I’d love to go back.
The service was very good. We went at 6 pm on a Sunday night and it was dead, making it uncomfortable as it was very quiet. The only disappointment was that an entree was $20+ and the mashed potatoes seemed to be instant.
As always everything was great; the food, drinks and service!
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.
