    Despite the cringe-worthy name, there's good food here. Prepared well but under seasoned tuna tartare app $16 and seared scallops entree $32. Side of garlic seasonal greens $9. Lychee cocktail good.

    Amazing outdoor seating area with great, friendly service! Definitely try the mojo pork sandwich (their take on a Cuban) - so delicious and juicy. It comes with yuca fries.

    YOLO is run by a group of Broward County power peeps who know how to run a solid business -- the same guys who brought you Tarpon Bend, Himmarshee Bar & Grill, and Vibe nightclub.

    Octopus appetizer is a must! Served with grapes, cherry tomate, nuts... spectacular! The cuscus served with the salmon is also one of a kind. Great terrace. Best dinner in Fort Lauderdale!

    Food was delicious. Calamari was amazing! Sunday brunch, you can pay 15$ for bottomless mimosas. Having drinks, outside was gorgeous. Great atmosphere and the staff was very nice as well.

    I call it the VIP place :) it's a great place to be at. You can meet nice and elegant people (usually business men&women meet there)! Still an awesome spot to spend your weekend.

    Meat-lovers will be enchanted by the “forever-braised” short ribs, served with creamy potato risotto, roasted carrots, and crispy shallots. - See more at: http://flmag.com/yolo#sthash.E2gU8EXW.dpuf

    Their Truffled Chips are named Best Potato Chips by New Times Broward Palm Beach! Each slice is topped with melted dollops of blue cheese, crisp salty bacon and flecks of rosemary and thyme.
  • New Times Broward Palm Beach
    It was the first place on the block to feature a fire pit and outside bar. It has great music. An impressive cocktail list. And fare paired to match it all.

    Nothing good except the staff. The worst Greek salad I have ever eaten. Oily, fatty, enormous amount of cheese. Cranberry juice was like a wine, it was disgusting and I wasn't able to drink it at all.
