I was happy with the salad I ended up getting but that was after talking to the server and figuring out what I could eat there. Seriously in this day and age to not have a completely vegetarian/vegan option is just odd. None the less the server was great and checked on us regularly.

YOLO has a very lively bar scene, which can make the restaurant, even tucked in a corner, a bit on the loud side. Still, the food is excellent, and the pork chop (from the regular menu) was phenomenal! It may be the biggest I've ever had, and despite the size it was tender and tasty. The overall YOLO menu is eclectic, so something for everyone. For an energetic dinner on Las Olas closer to the the downtown end, this is a great place to go.

At this time I can’t say things went well.
Service was not good at all.
Good took forever to come and we ordered burgers. Nothing complicated!!!
We were 4 people and all of us had to return our food twice!!!
That was very up setting!!!

Love this restaurant!!! This is our third visit and it never disappoints. Taylor was our server he was very attentive and when there was a little issue with my pork chop being a bit overcooked he immediately got the manager and a new one arrived very quickly. It was delicious as was the cedar plank salmon my husband ordered. Sides were also quite good. The ambiance is superb.

Enjoyed my meal, the food was delicious, the server very efficient and friendly, nice atmosphere. My only complaint is that they brought out the appetizer almost immediately after our cocktails. And our salad was brought out the same time as our entrée. That made me feel like the meal was a bit rushed.

Overall we had a very pleasant meal and experience. We couldn’t decide on the wine and wouldn’t have minded a taste of a few. The food came out quickly and was delicious. It was a little difficult getting the waiters attention at the end of the meal. Otherwise overall was a great experience

Had to wait over an hour with a reservation for a table and had to wait 10 minutes for a waiter to approach our table and another 30 minutes to get our meal. Very bad service. Food was satisfactory.

Great place, good appetizers roasted artichoke(hard item to find anywhere) delicious and the calamari so good. We share an entree fish special (corvina) well cooked moist well seasoned can say much about the drinks because we found out it was 1/2 bottles of wines under $100 so we got a good bottles of prosecco at the ridiculous amount of $16.50 the dessert fresh berries so good with a lime custard that finish are meal with a bang we are definitely going back

We were late to our reservation due to car trouble and they still honored our time. The bar was super busy because of Happy Hour but we sat at a table in the dining room. The grilled artichokes are the BEST appetizer in all of Fort Lauderdale. Their Schrubbery cocktail is phenomenal. Our server, Taylor, was the best and very attentive to our needs. Go sit with him! We come to this restaurant frequently as we live in the area. There are tons of choices in DT but we always pick YOLO because of the food & drinks

We make YOLO our annual experience for our anniversay trip in September! We always enjoy the amazing atmosphere and amazing food options. We had another wonderful time this year...Jeff the manager even took steps to give us some champagne to toast our anniversary along with a delicious dessert. Always looking forward to getting back to this special place!!

Was a very pleasant Friday evening. They had live music, a lot of people seating outside enjoying the weather... During the happy hour drink prices were great and the appetizers were delicious! We had hamburger as dinner and it was REALLY GOOD!
We ordered lava cake as dessert, but it was overcooked.
I recommend this restaurant and looking forward to go back.

For a Monday night it was very slow . I don’t know if this is why the service was so poor . The waitress was slow to acknowledge during the entire visit . The Mahi was very under cook, my boyfriend had to send it back. The constant fly was over our table to entire night . I couldn’t enjoy my cornbread after that .

Except for the calamaris and the good service, we didn’t have a good experience. Calamaris was definitely the best dish on the menu.
