Very nice evening at Yolo. Good food, good service. We had numerous appetizers which were delicious. Salmon entree was excellent as was the Prime rib sandwich. Definitely recommend and will be back.

Food was amazing! Somewhat confusing on the end time of bottomless mimosas though. We arrive just before 2:30 and we’re told it ended at 2:30. Then another server said 3pm. But online makes it seem like 4pm when the brunch specials also end. I would definitely come back for another meal though, food was really good.

The waitress wasn’t knowledgeable about certain items. We order the Grits and Shrimp and prior to ordering we asked did it have any bacon in it due to one of my friends who does not eat meat, and she replied no. When the food came my friend started to eat and noticed she was eating some tiny pieces of bacon. We immediately called the waitress to let her know that it was bacon in our order and her response was I asked someone and they said no it didn’t have bacon, then I asked someone else and they said yes it does. The calamari had too much chili pepper sauce on it, our drinks were not good, we were bitten by gnats, and eggs tasted as if they were powdered. Not one manager came over to our table to see if everything was ok.This place was a one and done for us but hey You Only Love Once.

The chicken dish was amazing. Service was suberb. Ambiance great. The only thing we were not happy with was the green Apple slaw- it was basically Cole slaw with a couple slivers of green apple swimming in way too much dressing. The server took it off the tab and also comped dessert! Overall it was an amazing meal and we will be back.

The waitress took 15 mins after she brought us water to come back to the table to take our order during lunch. She didn't even stop by to say she'll be right with us. We flagged her down. After that, service was good. The Greek chicken "dinner" was sub par. I'm not sure if it was thoroughly cooked. Very small portion. It was served in what looked like a bowl of half filled soup water, which was tasteless. It was supposed to be over spinach, which was under the broth. Ridiculous dish. Food went downhill to me, I won't be back for quite a while. I used to go there all the time.

Asked for my fish blackened and it wasn’t. 7pm reservation and prime rib was already sold out. Stuck between two bachelorette parties. Bug in wine. Overall not as pleasant as past experiences.

Service was friendly and quick for most of the dinner at the beginning drinks did take a bit longer than normal. The appetizers were delicious a yellowfin tuna and meatball sliders. Recommend those two if you aren't sure. The mignon was cooked to perfection and my wife's swordfish was excellent.

Usually love Yolo for food and networking but yesterday food was below par. Our calamari was served cold and my shrimp were mealy and didn’t taste fresh. A bit disappointing as usually I have a solid food experience at YOLO.

Very plain and unimpressive food absolutely not worth the price. Nothing special whatsoever about the food; it just tasted meh. Would not recommend the Greek chicken; tzatziki is not a sauce that belongs on a roast chicken. In addition it does not come with a side (other than a few leaves of wilted spinach underneath) and you have to pay extra money to get a side dish. The steak sandwich was mediocre at best. In summary the only thing exciting about this restaurant is it's name. We left unhappy having spent our money here.

As always, the experience at YOLO is satisfying. The menu changes from time to time so there is always something different to try. I've never been disappointed with my food. Tonight was delicious crab cakes, full of lump crab. The service is always attentive. Tonight was quieter than usual as the restaurant was less full during August. I love coming back to this place every time.

I had to eat while with my two year old. The server was patient and amazing. I had the chicken sandwich no tomatoes and added sautéed onions. It was very good. Thanks Yolo for the wonderful ambiance and not making a big deal of a little one going nuts.

Some of the most uninspired boring food I’ve ever eaten.The Szechuan calamari was nothing more than a hot sticky over fried pile And the salmon look like it was nuked in a microwave with onions that were clearly sautéed an advance

Also I did not receive my 100 points for making the reservation

Food was excellent and I would suggest everyone who eats there to order the Santorini grilled octopus salad. One of the best octopus dishes I've eaten and I've tried many.

The menu items are limited and they should update their specials. The atmosphere is very nice; however, on Sunday which was a slow day the waiter service was very slow. The waiter was busy speaking with hostess and had to be called over. I would say in the past year they have dropped in service and food variety.
