We had the soup of the day, three different entrees and the vegetable plate to share. All were excellent. Service was attentive and efficient. We sat by the bar and it wasn't overly loud. The room is pretty but very open. Prices are affordable and average for the area.

The ratings were high for good reason. Bentleys and Lambos lined the entrance. Great scene. Crabcakes were tasty too. Interesting twist is a lounge attached to the restaurant with a DJ.

Best to avoid this place if Jason is managing even the police and his own staff were laughing at him when he emptied the bar.

Recommended by a friend and had to try it. The food was great. Me and my friend had the prime rib au jus. We ordered a bottle of wine but was no good they took it back no problem and we got to pick another one. Overall the service was great.

Have been to yolo's a couple of times and have enjoyed it both visits. The décor is modern and soothing with a bar for perfect people watching. Valet parking is a must and hassle free. The service is attentive but not intrusive. The drinks were made properly and really enjoyed their martinis. [not from a mix of high fructose sugar].... More

We stopped by for a quick lunch, and all food prepared was great! Atmosphere is amazing, and loved the fact that it did not feel like we were in downtown, due to the extensive landscape design around the restaurant.

Great place to dine and meet with clients - do avoid evening hours if business related - it can be rather loud

YOLO is located directly on Las Olas Boulevard. The people watching is superb as attested to by the vehicles in the valet lot out front. The server was attentive, helped clean up a small amount of water that had collected on our booth, and was quick to deliver our food which was always warm. The salmon was delicious and very... More

Atmosphere is amazing here, whether you sit inside or out. Service is very good as they keep your drinks full and keep an eye on their tables. Nice lite fare for lunch with burgers and salads and more. Did I mention it's also a great place to people watch? If you're in the area give them a try!
