Love the name YOLO! Great restaurant for going before attending an event at the Broward Center. We asked for a quieter spot which worked for us.

Everyone was friendly and professional... from the host, the waitress and the guys who placed the food on the table. They all made a point to speak to us, and they all had smiles. Thanks so much...my sister enjoyed her birthday celebration there!

We had a disappointing experience at YoLo’s but we love the restaurant so we decided to go back. So glad we did. Our server was wonderful and it made all the difference. The food is always exceptional. We will return again soon.

Your salads are ok but not impressive. I would prefer fresh large tomato wedges in my greek salad vs the spliced cherry tomatoes. I would also prefer if you left the cucumber whole vs removing the middle part. Lastly, add a little romaine to the Greek salad, that won't cost you and it add a watery flavor to the dish.

This is not a complaint, yet I will try a different salad next time.

Bathroom was absolutely disgusting. It was so hot in the dining room that we had to rush through our dining experience. I know if we were that hot during the 2 hours we were there the waitstaff must have been dying for their shift. Won’t be returning any time soon.

This was a going away dinner. I had specific notes to make sure the dessert plate said something special but that did not happen. The reservation was on a Sunday so the restaurant was not busy at all. Missing that piece was a bit disappointing to the occasion. Taylor’s service was good. It was just an “okay” experience.

Good is always outstanding. Doesn’t matter what you order. I would recommend the martini flight that comes in a fun set up. Service isn’t bad but seems to take slightly longer than average. But we did get free deserts for out wait.

We were a party of 4. It was the worse service I ever received. Three people shared 3 entrees which came out in about 10-15 minutes. The 4th person if I did not waive someone down she would not have received her meal which was a hamburger. This burger was delivered to her 15 minutes after our meal. That is not acceptable

We had a great experience ! Food was delicious. The corn dip is so unique and special (the honey gives it an awesome kick!). My crab cakes coming with the green apple cole slaw and mac and cheese is my favorite dish ... to die for. Drinks were great. Lorie, our server was phenomenal ... always providing good recommendations, checking on us, making sure we had all we wanted/needed. Ashley and George (management) treat the place as their home and they make sure everyone is enjoying their food, having a great time, and there are only smiles in their customers faces. Love the experience. For sure coming back !

I went on a Wednesday night. Service was lackluster, our waiter came to get our drinks and food order and didn't see him again. The calamari was soaked in the szechuan sauce to the point where the batter was soggy. We had to ask for salt, pepper and bread to accompany our meal. My friend's steak was cold and mine was warm. My friend sent back his steak and the second round was satisfactory. I wouldn't go back for food.
The ambiance was good and the outside patio is nice. The place is nice for drinks and perhaps happy hour, but I wouldn't go back for food.
