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 !
Restaurant week options were very good. Good food and good value.
Excellent food, service and interior. Owner always makes a point to come over to make sure you are happy. He runs a great restaurant.
This week is restaurant week, and even though their are alot if good deals out there. I really feel restaurants focus more on getting people into their restaurants, than preparing a great meal. YOLO does restaurant week right.
The prosciutto salad was very good..it's always good to have a salad with fresh ingredients.
The cilantro salmon was good as well. Loved the seasonings of the fish, but I feel the chili lime rice did not match with it well. The rice tasted to much like a jambalaya rice.
The encrusted Sirloin filet, was a very well presented and tasting dish.
As for cocktails, the St Patrick's was very good. They were so good I had 3 of them.
I will be bringing my wife back here again and again.
Service was immaculate and the originally of the appetizers and entress as well as their flavor was magnificent
Yolo always has wonderful food -great recipes using the finest ingredients. Never disappoints!
Lovely Easter dinner choice! Excellent food, service and ambiance. Drinks were excellent too!
Awesome place ! Great atmosphere and delicious food , wonderful service. Had a delicious raspberry martini at the bar before dinner. Feel like you are in NYC.
Food was good. Service was great. Interior environment and ambiance left a lot to be desired.
One of the best eats I’ve had in Buffalo. It’s a must try. Seems a little pricey until you taste the food and experience the place. Then it’s a must go back. Great little find
We enjoyed our dinner. Ample drink and food options on the menu. Food was very good, the service was great. Casual, yet fancy. Will return.
The decor is beautiful, the menu had a very good amount of variety and options and the drinks were good. The waitress was fine but not superb, we had to ask for refills and had to get her attention a few times. The food was good and everyone in my party was ultimately satisfied
Not bad - not great. Food was good, ambience good, prices were moderate. Nothing stood out as great however. It was not too noisy, so it was easy to carry on conversation, but the room was only about 60% full (on a Saturday night). The lower noise level was helped by the bar being separate of the dining area.
Loved the service and the wine. The food was quite good. Partner had the Sesame Ahi Tuna, she loved it. I had the Peach Walnut Pork Chop - the glaze was far too sweet and they put too much of the glaze on the plate - but the pork chop itself was delicious. I would eat it again but would ask for about 1/3 of the glaze. I would happily recommend Yolo to friends looking for good food and great service.
Dinner was delicious. Love the fresh baked bread and new menu items.
Best vodka martini - always.
Friendly and cordial staff - always.
Our ‘go to’ spot!
Great Smoked Manhattan! They take the time to handcraft this wonderful cocktail and its smokey flavor lingers throughout the restaurant long after you've finished the drink.
The experience was very nice. I had booked my reservation on open table but when I got to the restaurant they did not have it. I also had a reminder of my reservation that morning and was a bit surprised they did not have the reservation. We did not have to wait but a couple of minutes and the restaurant did accommodate us however the table was right near the kitchen and not ideal.
That was our First time there & we were impressed, Ashly our server was efficient, bubbly, very friendly. Both my Husband I enjoyed our meal very much. The only thing is you should update the prices on you web site, wasn't a big deal, we just like to see if the prices are reasonable.
Loved the ambience, the service, the food AND the cocktails!
I have been to YOLO on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed by the food.
Although , I do feel their prices are getting a little high.Example. $33.25 for a pork chop.
We have never been disappointed with YOLO.
The food is always fresh and delicious as well as the service. It’s a great little neighborhood gem.
It’s one of our go to spots when we start talking about where to go tonight or any night.
Great Sunday brunch as well.
Two high school friends and I ate at YOLOs recently. The food was excellent. One person in our group is definitely a "foodie" and she was very pleased with her meal. Because our main reason for getting together was to talk and catch up with each other, we especially appreciated the willingness of our server (Matt) to let us talk but be available for our needs when they arose. It was a very good experience and we would all recommend the restaurant!
Thursdays are half price wine bottle days- what a deal! You can even have them cork your bottle to take it home. We both enjoyed the Chicken Marsala dinner. It was so good that we cleaned our plates! Plus, the chef stopped by to ensure that we had a great meal!
Always a great meal and fabulous service. Never disappointed in this restaurant
Great fish fry. Matt our server was very friendly and professional. Justin the owner is very friendly and came to our table a few times to talk to us. That’s great hospitality.
Had a pleasant Friday dinner. Reasonable wine prices. My salmon special was properly prepared with nice fresh green beans. My wife had the chicken francais, nice sauce, well prepared.
Attentive service and wonderful food made for a great night all around.
I had a work lunch with two colleagues. Two of us had the spinach omelet. Everything was beautifully prepared and tasted great. I would heartily recommend this restaurant, which is centrally located and easy to find in Buffalo.
Hog wings are great. Pan fried chicken dinner was 1st rate. Many great options on this menu for every taste.
Fresh food, great drinks, good specials, good service. Had a really nice night out with friends.
dinner was delicious... there was a half dozen items I would have loved to try. I finally chose the scallops. We met with a friend from out of town and never felt rushed while we visited. I will definitely go there again to try another thing on the menu.
Our waiter was extremely welcoming. The food came out in a timely fashion. Everything tasted good and the atmosphere was nice. We will definitely be back
Wonderful neighborhood or destination restaurant. Highest quality food. Owner on premises. Delightful service and fabulous food. A must try - or return - restaurant!!!
This was our first visit, restaurant week and our anniversary. Food was outstanding as was the service. We will be going back.
Excellent food, as always! Willing to accommodate food preparation for dieting. A place we're the owner and his wife take special interest in their patrons. Always feel welcome!
We eat here a lot & it is always good. We like it because of the variety of choices. My fiancée had filet & I had a hamburger. Just what we both wanted. Sometimes we just split a few apps. You can have an app & drink at the bar right up to full dinner in the restaurant. The owner almost always stood by to see how things are going. The service is always great.
YOLO always gives us a delicious meal with wonderful service. Great hamburgers and great price!
There was hair in my food but they took it back and brought me a new one which was very nice of them. The manager was very polite about it.
Unfortunately when we showed up at our scheduled reservation time it was closed. We were very disappointed and had to quickly find another restaurant... assuming it was bc it was Labor Day weekend. But there was no way to know that they were changing their hours
Celebrated my birthday with my husband. Tried a new apprtizer, the Mediterranean platter. It was fantastic! My husband absolutely loved his seafood dish which was a combination of shrimp, mussels, haddock,maihi and more with homemade pasta. Finished it off with my most favorite drssert, creme burlee. The only negative was the server was not very attentive. We will back!
