Food was so so, service not good.My mashed potatoes were too salty and server never bothered to check on us during the meal. I did complain about the saltiness, but I had already finished meal without the potatoes. Not what I had expected.

Over priced, service and food was sub par. When you spend $80 For Apitizers and a couple of drinks you would expect a good experience

Lately....I've been disappointment with the take out service at multiple restaurants. I feel sick thinking about how much money I've wasted so far. I am not the only one feeling this way.  I am a usual at YOLO...currently they are opened for pickup...your food order is delivered to your vehicle upon arrival... Wed-Sat from 3-7pm (last I checked). My friend ordered us a number of meals, steak, salmon dinners, chicken milanese, wings, and dessert. NO COMPLAINTS! So good!  We're ordering again soon. The quality of taste in the food is still there! Unlike MANY of other restaurants that wasted my money, and are NOW lacking quality (bland food with no seasonings, no effort...I even received wings with feathers from a BBQ restaurant recently ...which I fed to my cat smh ewwww seriously!). We order take out often because of our work schedule...mandatory OT stinks! Actually EVERYTHING stinks right now! We can at least pay for a quality, tasty meal! YOLO DELIVERED THAT!  Without a doubt....the food has ALWAYS been full of flavor, never bland. I do so LUV the stuffed hot peppers too! We are all glad that the quality of food hasn't changed at YOLO.    The owner Justin is the kindest man...really good energy to match.  I miss the perfection of martinis, and looking forward to Saturday DJ nights again!  Salute to the Chef and kitchen team! Thank You all for caring.  Money well spent!

I've only come here for lunch. It is not very busy when I have been there. It is one large room and does not have a very intimate feel. Maybe needs some walls? Softer decor? The sandwiches and salads I've had here are good though. A glass of wine compliments the meal. I think it is owned by the family that is associated with Salvatores? The decor between the two establishments is like night and day lol. I wish them luck and hope they can make a go of it.
