Operated by a philosophy that it derives its name from, YOLO and neighboring O Lounge are vibrant, much-loved staples in the South Florida culinary and nightlife scene. The swanky Fort Lauderdale restaurant and adjacent lounge serves thoughtfully prepared contemporary American cuisine in a sophisticated, bustling atmosphere that includes a bar and dining room with open kitchen, and an outdoor patio, and features inventive cocktails and an extensive wine list to complement the menu. The longtime Las Olas hotspot serves up lunch and dinner daily, and is legendary for its happy hour and Brunch on Saturday & Sunday.

We went early, before a concert at the Broward Performing Arts Center. We told our server that we were in a bit of a hurry because we were going to a concert and she told us that because of the restaurant's partnership with the theater, we were each entitled to a free dessert which we could enjoy either immediately after our entrees or we could come back after the concert. Service was prompt, food was outstanding, and the desserts were a very nice bonus!

A place to see and be seen where the cars lined up as you leave are all lambos and Bentley’s. Nice vibe out front with outdoor seating and some live tunes for our weeknight visit.

Food was good to great but mostly on the good side. Cornbread was delish and a nice portion, better for three or four. The touted calamari was tasty enough but the high breading to actual squid ratio caused quick burnout and a decent portion uneaten. Chopped salad was the star for us and the crab cakes were good with green apple slaw and ultra thin crispy fries.

Service was above average for our meal. Likely a return for drinks and apps outside but not a full business meal again.

Have dined here with better experience. Had early reservation on 2/14/18 (5:45) before heading to theater so it was not very busy upon arrival and through most of dinner. Our server was inattentive and seemed upset to be serving us, the valet and hostess were more friendly. First martini was served warm. The calamari is of such low quality that it is drowned by a tomato sauce and spices. The portions are small (2 beef) and over priced. The atmosphere is very trendy and hip and I liked the décor.
