When visiting Fort Lauderdale, Yolo is a must. We were there mainly for post-works drinks, but also had a light meal. The atmosphere is always exceptionally good. We were a party of 6 and we sat outside and caught up on the last year's happenings over a few glasses of wine. Our waitress was apparently new and not as slick as I'm used to – even so, the ambience, seating, (outside) heating, people-watching, drinks quality and temperature were all very good. We ordered small items of food and they were of a good standard.

Went here on a spur of the moment decision on a Wednesday night. Place was packed, but only had to wait 20 minutes. The drinks were good (even though my rum and tonic was a vodka tonic) and the view was spectacular. After our wait outside at the bar, our seat was outside. The table next to us was celebrating loudly a man's 60 birthday and it was a bit out of control. The service was spot on, and the food was good. We both had steaks, the fillet and the NY strip, and both were done to perfection. We spit a wedge salad and it was good ,as was the octopus appetizer. the wine list was reasonable, and we had an Oregon Pinot Noir.
This definately is not a family place. The amount of young women with little clothes was amazing. Not that I am complaining, but I would think twice before taking young children.

From the awesome cornbread to the pasta w/clams, grilled trout and chopped salad, it was outstanding! We enjoy this neighborhood spot routinely and are always pleased. Be sure to make reservations! Valet parking is a few steps from the front door.

Great location, ambiance, food and service. Staff is always on their game and pleasant. Drinks are made well and wine list is good. You absolutely can't go wrong with dining here. Lively atmosphere...If you prefer quieter sit on the east patio. The trout is awesome and the filet is always tender and delish. Bar Tenders are happy to customize drinks if you give them an idea of what you like! Next door (connected) is O lounge which usually has a DJ for after dinner dancing.

I've been to Yolo over two dozen times. I have always ordered the special and have yet to eat the same main course. It is one of the few places I dare to explore new dishes.

Some servers are better than others but I've never had a bad experience there. A few have just proven to be the best in the business.
