Arrived at 1:30 for lunch. Service was friendly and prompt and food was delicious until the very end. T was 2:50 and we wanted another round of bottomless and the server told us no it ended at 2:30 and or 2:45 so we were very confused. She said let me see if I can find another bottle she came back within minutes and said sorry no. I’m in the industry and I know they had bottles and it did not say anywhere on the menu that bottomless ended at 2:30 or 2:45. I honestly believed she wanted to end her shift not have us sit there. If a manager stopped by I would of said something. However I was enjoying time with my friends. I suggest managers do touch tables to ensure all guest are satisfy.

It was my first visit and I enjoyed it. My server was cool and the only reason he didn’t get a 5 star is because he forgot an item I ordered. Otherwise, great time and I’ll be back for sure!

I went with my sisters - all in our 60’s. Everything was very good but it is loud, even inside away from the bar. Very energetic place with fun bar scene for the younger crowd!

Valet service available at a charge of $7. The restaurant was very spacious and not lacking when compared to cleanliness and staff’s attentiveness. Our wait time was average, however, additional wait staff visited to check in.

The food was satisfying. For the value, you are paying maybe for freshness and the ambiance. For foodies looking for a big meal/a lot of food, I’d suggest ordering a couple appetizers, a meal and a couple sides.

We arrived during the Happy Hour, not knowing there was one. Terrific deal, and we ordered from both menus. Our waiter, Gary, took great ride in his work. Excellent.

The service is outstanding from the time you pull in to valet. The food is delicious. No complaints. I will be joining this restaurant for another visit outside of Valentine’s Day.

The weekly staff at YOLO is very good. Except for the hostesses, who are these clowns and what is happening in the kitchen?? Shame on you, YOLO! You are better than that!

I love this restaurant but Valentine’s Day was not my most favorite experience. My first drink had a fly in it. They were sold out of the items I really wanted so I had to settle for something else. I did not feel that the restaurant was receptive on how inconvenient it is to order something and it was sold out to order something else and have an up charge because the didn’t have what you wanted

Went for Vday and to celebrate my partner’s birthday and we were underwhelmed. They had ran out of the appetizer we originally wanted by 9, the tequila cocktail we ordered wasn’t the best, and my partner’s steak was overcooked, by the time it got back to us it we had already ate and filled on my plate. I understand that it’s a busy time of the year, and I’m very grateful to our waitress who tried to make everything right and was attentive.

I went on Valentine’s Day so I went in knowing it wasn’t going to be the absolute best food quality. However if you charge $40 for filet, I do expect it to be cooked properly. I ordered medium rare and was served medium well. I don’t care how busy a place is, if you charge top dollar you should get what you order the way you order it. My service was great and loved the ambience but need to deliver better food for the prices

We enjoyed a romantic Valentine's Day dinner. A limited menu, but food was excellent. A live acoustic performer was great background music for our dinner.

We went for a nice lunch for Valentine's Day, knowing that dinner hour would be very busy. Going at 2pm was the best. Our wait staff was very helpful helped with my choices that I could have since I have to be gluten free. We always have a great time at YOLOs.

I had to rate the food to get to this point but we never had any. We got there, were seated and waited for over 15 for someone to acknowledge our existence. No water, no welcome, no drink orders. There are a lot of good restaurants in the area so we left.

I took my sister here for her birthday. Her husband lost his battle with cancer last year and he had gotten a big tattoo on his arm after he had gone into remission for a time. The tattoo was YOLO. So, of course, I took my sister to YOLO. Unfortunately, I inadvertently cancelled the reservation but the host and hostess took pity on us and found us a table. Thank you very much.

The food was excellent and the service was great. We will definitely go back. Make sure you get the lava cake, it was fabulous!
