Celebrating both of our teenage sons birthdays. Great food and service. My husband and I have eaten there many times but it was a first for our boys. They loved it! Smoked cornbread was their appetizer of choice!

Food was very good- service good- would like to have had some bread brought to the table without us asking for it. Specialty cocktails could be updated and offer a few more . Overall- very good!

I would not return to this location… The waitress was very good… The atmosphere was good… The main course was not good… We ordered our meal medium well it came out medium rare… We sent it back and it came back medium Rear and cold... it was also too spicy for me to eat....Management came over and took it off the bill…

Love it always consistent all around

Although it's been a little while since my last visit they did change around the ice cream sandwiches and I preferred the old ones better

The food was great and the ambiance was really nice but the staff was awful. The only saving grace was our server, Joey. Without him, we would have been very disappointed with our entire experience. Right when we walked in, the hostess was unenthusiastic and the rest of the staff followed the same type of attitude. No smiles and barely a greeting. The manager of this restaurant was the worst. She was very cold and did not even care to ask how our experience was. All she cared about was why we were taking pictures inside the restaurant. We like to take pictures anywhere we go on our trip, so naturally, that's what we did. After I gave her my "explanation" (I felt like I was being interrogated), she left and went back to chatting with the bartender. Worst experience in Ft. Lauderdale and will not recommend this place at all.

Always a great evening at YOLO. Lively crowd, but not overwhelmingly loud. Food and service were wonderful. Sure wish they had the Salmon burger on their dinner menu.

Not our first visit. We like the energy at YOLO, which was a bit down on a Tuesday night, but it was lively enough, and we found it easier to converse at our table. The food, as always, was well-seasoned, cooked as requested, and delicious. The fried calamari is still the best we've had. My salmon was perfectly cooked, my spouse's very large pork chop was cooked just as he liked it, and our friends loved their dishes (salmon/crab cakes) as well. The chocolate chip bread pudding was a big hit. (And how could it NOT be?) We will be back. It's a good place to celebrate a special event with people you love. In this case, an anniversary.

In Fort Lauderdale leaving for a cruise and tried YOLO. Everything was fantastic! Our server, Joshua, provided just the right amount of attention. I’d recommend the crab cakes, they were great. Since we are going to stay in Fort Lauderdale for a couple of days after our cruise, YOLO was so good, we’re going back!

We went to celebrate my husband's birthday. There were six of us on a Friday night. The food was great and the service was amazing!
We shared the shishito peppers and calamari. Two of us had the octopus salad, one had the filet, another had a hamburger, one had a prime rib sandwich, and one had the prime rib special. We shared desserts. Everyone loved their food and the cocktails ... and my daughter is very picky about her cocktails!
It was a perfect night!
