    Good experience, not great, which I was expecting based on reviews and pricing. Good food, service was ok at best (had to flag someone down way too many times), and the dining area is pretty loud. Overall, just not what we hoped for after reading reviews.

    Yolan is an upscale Italian restaurant. We came here for our anniversary. The environment, service, and food was all excellent. The taste and presentation of the food especially was very satisfying. For less than the price of two people going to a professional sporting event or concert, we had a wonderful evening. In total, we spent about 2 hours. We would definitely come back again.

    We were surprised that the restaurant was within the Joseph but other than the lobby bar noise the evening was delightful. THe food was great - especially the fried olives and gnocchi for appetizers, and the veal chop was spectaular. I would recoomend thought that this entree takes some time, so pace one's self. Our sommelier made great choices for accompaning a variety of dishes.

    We pretty much like everything about Yolan. The bar, the dining space, the semi observable kitchen makes the experience special. Oh, the food is about as good as it gets!

    I have been in Nashville for 6 years now and Yolan is by far the most exceptional restaurant I have been to in this city. From the outstanding service to the incredible food and drink selection, and even an explanation of the dishes from the chef himself, all of it was so amazing and I can’t wait to go back!

    Samantha and John were very attentive, kind and thoughtful. Samantha made very good suggestions based on what we told her - everything was detailed and experience oriented. The vibes of Yolan are romantic and have good ambiance. The food is extremely good, thoughtfully played, and indulgent in the best ways (even my husband who is not a salad person loved the mercato). You can tell the ingredients are fresh. Dessert was show stopping - the pastry chef is a genius. We always love coming here, especially god special occasions.
