We arrived early for our 7 PM reservation and were seated within 10 minutes. The staff was incredibly accommodating and very friendly. The food was tasty, inventive, and generous. The blistered pepper appetizer was excellent as were the salads. Meat portions were large and served exactly as ordered. We did not have room for dessert. As we were leaving, we... More

YOLO [You Only Live Once] is a short walk from the Ft. Lauderdale art museum and offers several fun eating and drinking areas, both indoors and out. It is part of a grouping of with-it restaurants in town that seem to cater to the business lunch crowd and the urban fun seeking tourists. So, the area is great and offers... More

My husband and I along with 3 friends went to this restaurant before attending the nearby theater. The service and the food was very good, however valet parking was somewhat of a struggle. We did enjoy the people watching... the prices of cocktail and food was overpriced for what you get.

Food was great, service perfect, price reasonable. atmosphere great. If you like looking at Pretty people go early and have a drink on the patio. Lot`s of show however on Patio, what you drive, what you wear and how good you look. If that`s what you want can be a great time. definitely not a family restaurant. Inside restaurant seemed...

Visiting from out of town we decided to try this restaurant based on the reviews on TripAdvisor. We were celebrating our anniversary and I am so glad we chose to celebrate here! The drink menu is amazing, I tried at least 3 different ones (taxis are pretty easy to grab on Las Olas) and the food is spectacular. My hubby... More

We had reseravations to celebrate a family memeber birthday. When we step inside the restaurant the atmosphere and food was excellent. Now upon arriving we encounter the valet parking person for Yolo restraurant who was very rude to me and my family arriving and leaving the valet parking area. If you are of a another race (black) do not valet... More

Very Cool and Swanky place! We stopped by Yolo on Christmas Eve for appetizers and cocktails. To our surprise it just happened to be happy hour. Enjoyed the shishito peppers, meatball sliders, szechuan calimari, and artichoke. And of course the happy hour wines. It was nice to sit by the fire pit and enjoy our appetizers and drinks until it... More

Calamari was outstanding, maybe a bad pairing to serve it along side the meat balls, because the meat balls seems bland next to it. Filet was Perfectly cooked can't wait to go back!

We had a reservation for 5 on a Sunday night. 3 people were seated when they arrived and 2 came 1 minute after the reservation time. The restaurant was not full or that busy. After waiting 15 minutes with no one coming over to take our drink orders or just to acknowledge our presence, I went to the hostess stand... More

The food here is excellent. The staff is professional and helpful. Make sure you order the corn bread and the calamari. Make reservations early…otherwise you might not get to eat here.
