Great Sunday Bruch! Food is good! We were close enough to walk so we did. Sunday brunch is always hopping and we always sit outside! All our food was just right and the pictures of Mimosas didn't hurt either.

Valet parking. $7 with validation. Walked right in without a reservation on a Thursday night. Got a table on the patio. Service was very friendly. We started with the calamari. It was awesome. Perfectly crisp on the outside. Sauce was very tasty. I ordered the prime rib sandwich. Not my best decision. Too much ciabatta bread and the Swiss cheese... More

My friend's Dad took us here to celebrate his Graduation. We sat in the outside area, which was beautiful; well lit, comfortable seating and carpeted. It had a great atmosphere with a higher class yet versatile range of people than you'd see in Downtown West Palm for example. Our server was quick, polite and knowledgeable. The vibe definitely changed the... More

Yes it is the place up be; fancy cars and fancy people. The scene overshadowed the food. The food was decent; calamari, artichokes, steak, salmon and crab cakes. It was a Saturday night so my attention was elsewhere which may impact my review of the food.

To me, The outstanding feature of YOLO is the people scene, the food and ambiance are semi- upscale, nothing wrong with it, just not that memorable, especially for what they charge- perhaps they know that there has to be a surcharge to see so many beautiful people strutting their stuff. We've been a couple of times, it's always crowded and... More

YOLO stands for "You Only Live Once". In the case of our experience, we're changing the name to YOGO - "You Only Go Once". The place was packed, apparently TOO packed because once our waitress took our order, we never saw her again. I won't go into the gory details, there are too many. I.E. How two of us ordered...

YOLO is a happening place in Ft. Lauderdale. You can't survive for long if you aren't on top of your game in this city. YOLO is outstanding for service and food, Where else can you see on a big screen TV next to the open kitchen and see your food being prepared? People who complain about the service most likely...

While staying at the Riverside on Las Olas Blvd in Fort Lauderdale, we've been trying out different restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel. It was a Thursday night and Yolo's was very busy, inside and outside, with a mainly after-work, young, local crowd. We liked what we saw on the menu and the atmosphere of the place, so... More
