Great place for dinner! Highly recommended. So happy we tried it.
Great food selection and options.
Super fun. Great live muscu
I ordered the burger and it was very good but a little too well done for my taste. The restaurant is very nice but a little loud. The service was good. I recommend this restaurant for a nice casual meal.
Always wonderful dining at YOLO. Was a first time for my three girlfriends and they loved it
Delicious food and wonderful service
Great as always. Celebrated a 31 st birthday!
This was our second time to Yolo. It wowed me the first time but this time, not so much. I made a reservation and specified that it was for my wife's 30th birthday. When we arrived we stood at the hostess stand for awhile, when they finally returned, I mentioned that I had a reservation, the hostess only said "follow me" and sat us right next to the front door. Okay, fine.... we ordered drinks which did not come out until well after the appetizers. I'm not sure if the hostess did not tell the server about the birthday occasion but it was a standard meal, nothing written on a dessert plate or anything. Honestly I was disappointed. It wasn't to the point where I would never come back but I would never do another occasion here again. I feel that they really missed the mark. The food was good, not the best I've ever had by far, but it was enjoyable. Prices were standard among similar restaurants on Las Olas, food quality was the same. The experience and communication really needs work to make it a special place again, at least in my mind.
I always enjoy a meal here and every guest I have brought along says the same. I have eaten and YOLO dozens of times over the years, the food is always tasty and the menu changes every now and then so you don't have to eat the same thing over and over. The service is usually very professional and attentive, but tonight the server was a bit confused. The outdoor patio is a great option on a beautiful evening, with the front being very lively and the "back patio" a quiet spot for conversation with your companions. The inside is very vibrant with a high noise level, which adds to the fun if you are in that mood.
Service was great! The entire staff was polite and friendly.
We sat outside which was romantic yet not boring!
Wine list was good, didn’t seem overpriced.
Easy to get to from all the beach hotels.
Great spot in heart of FLL ... Great food had the streak and potatoes was spot on .
Also loves all the apps ... corn bread was amazing
No one acknowledged that we reserved this for a birthday. Our waiter was slow and kept us waiting for drinks the entire afternoon also forgot to put in our appetizer which tasted terrible by the time it made it out. We spent a lot of money on brunch to have terrible service and no one to even care we were trying to celebrate. Would rather go to OB house.
YOLO has a very nice atmosphere, the staff is friendly and the food is good. We had the calamari which was crispy and had a nice zing. We also had the grouper over beans. It was tasty and wasn't smothered in a heavy, fattening sauce. Nice! Caitlin, our server, was very accommodating as we wanted to split a few things among the 4 of us. The valet parking is a huge plus!
Awful food but great cocktails. Would never eat here again. Much better suited for cocktails after dinner at a different local spot.
My experience waa ok. I made reservations and I still had to wait to be seated. I understand it's not there fault and they were busy that night but still. I don't know if our waiter was super busy or overwhelmed. However, he was not very attentive to us. It always took him awhile to get back to us. We asked for a dessert menu and got one 20mins later. I didn't even bother getting dessert anymore:/.
Another thing, they could really add more of a variety to there menu.
Cool place and great food!
The smoked corn bread, herb mac & cheese, and two meats was AMAZING!!
Very good experience
My dinner was nothing special - a piece of salmon and a small piece of squash. My friends enjoyed their meal more than I did. I ordered a salad which the waiter forgot. Instead he fought out the main dishes so I then cancelled the salad. When the music came on it was deafening. It was so loud that we couldn’t talk, causing us to leave before we wanted to. Even so, it seems like a fun place for a different purpose.
Fantastic food with excellent service. Highly recommend the cavetelli and meatballs. Incredible flavor.
First time here but will be back. Fun place, great food.
Food took rather long, it was ok but nothing out of this world
This is one restaurant that delivers -- food, service, value, and atmosphere! We will definitely go back!
It was amazing. Food was sooo good
Had a great dinner. Food was wonderful, flavorful and just delicious. It was a chilly nite so we didn't eat outside but would try it next time. If you have company coming from out of town, it's the place to go.
We went to YOLO for a birthday dinner. We were seated promptly at arrival on the outdoor patio. It was a little chilly outside, but the heaters and fire pit made it cozy. There was live music that was very enjoyable!
Service was great, our waitress was knowledgeable and attentive.
We had a corn dip app, which was just okay. My husband had the chicken curry soup, which he said was great. Both of our entrees were delicious. I had a beef dish with bone marrow, and my husband had the steak sandwich. Finished it off with the lava cake.
Great night out! I would absolutely recommend YOLO
We waited over an hour for lunch
The food, atmosphere, & service never disappoint, and great value. We will return. Delicious cavatelli & meatballs!
Always a great place to have a business lunch downtown.
The waiter was beyond poor. He was dealing with a problem from another party and completely ignores us. I do t like to give bad reviews but stay away. It’s a fabulous restaurant we frequent a lot. No management that night cared nor did the wait staff. Because their were 7 of this they included the tip. Had they not were not going to leave a tip
Our group has been to YOLO many times and have come to expect a flawless evening. Last night did not meet our expectations. Our drink order was executed quite poorly by our waiter and the bar staff. Once we notified management of the issue, it was handled quickly and generously. Once that was resolved, we ordered some starters. The spicy calamari was not great, over fried although our chopped salad was perfect and our third starter was ok. Our entrees were again, not what we have come to expect. The rotisserie chicken was over very salted. The crab cakes were ok but not great and the Branzino was again, not what we have had many times before. The steak sandwich was outstanding. All in all, a number of unexpected issues on what was not a very busy evening. Hopefully this will not repeat itself.
The food was delicious and if you like Smokey flavor, I can’t recommend the burger enough! Everything was great though, just a bit noisy. It’s definitely a popular hangout scene though, which explains the noise. Overall a fun atmosphere.
Above average food
We have eaten at Yolo several times. The food is
good with a nice presentation. The waiter was friendly. We arrived around 7pm. There was a
fairly large bar crowd which made for a noisy
setting. As the meal proceeded the crowd size increased and so did the noise. It made it difficult to have a conversation.
We grabbed a delicious lunch with out of town friends and they were wowed! YOLO is a slam dunk. Thanks, YOLO!
Artichokes hadn’t been salted which was disappointing.
Desserts need a lot of work.
Birthday celebration for my daughter, show after! Dinner & our waiter were great! Halibut was delicious!
Enjoyable evening sitting outside with live music. I felt the food was overpriced and portions not overly generous. Grouper was $33 and was a small piece served over 4 mushrooms and some corn. Chicken was so salty. Our server was disinterested and didn't even bother to fill wine glasses. No bread service. Lava cake was excellent! Would only go back for drinks as the patio is nice and the music was really good.
We met friends for dinner and started with a couple shared appetizers. The artichoke with lemon aioli and Thai fried calamari were crowd pleasers. Dinners including salmon, prime rib sandwich and salads were all well-prepared and very tasty. Service was outstanding and we were not rushed while enjoying drinks. Overall, a very fun evening.
The chicken dish that I had was delicious. Good happy hour at the bar.
