Owned and operated by the team behind the acclaimed River House and Tarpon Bend family of restaurants, YOLO (You Only Live Once) is Las Olas' new contemporary American restaurant and lounge. YOLO offers foodies and night owls an unbeatable mix of great dining and refreshing libations in a chic, unpretentious space. The deceptively simple menu boasts an eclectic array of dishes designed to please any palate, many borne from the restaurant's dramatic wood-burning grill. Guests can dine al fresco on the lush garden patio - complete with walk-up bar perfect for people watching - in the cozy dining room, featuring a bustling open kitchen , or sup on small plates in the candlelit lounge. Menu highlights include starters such as wild Mediterranean mussels and Asian-style crispy calamari; main plates including roasted salmon, Bourbon glazed pork chop and beef 2-ways. Beyond O Lounge and two bars, YOLO features a fabulous private room, perfect for business meetings and special occasions.

"At the request of friends we returned to this restaurant for dinner. The first time shortly after it opened while it was still light outside the overall effect was lovely. Our second adventure was after dark and yes it was romantic and the noise level was not deafening. That's where it stops. Swerve was lack luster and included. Drinks at the table were adequate. The main course was minuscule for the fish and although nicely prepared really lacked creative imagination for such a notable chef. The key lime pie with extras on the plate was pretty and like the main dish was sparse. The menu was not notable for a supposedly fine restaurant. So our battling average was 0 for 2."

"Discovered the quiet oasis on an intracoastal canal. Lovely outdoor dining. Food was reasonable prepared all except the salmon tartar. The waiter was brusquely Italian. The appetizers were excellent and since we were a little late for lunch we kept the food to a minimum. The desserts were excellent as well as the coffee. Would like to take a look at this restaurant for dinner."
