Mediocre food. server did not bother offering any specials or drinks (re: not even mentioning bloody mary bar - we had the open table special which was questioned, mimosas, or tap list). Repeated poor service. Way too loud with too many large groups (baby shower, odd brunch, and live music).

The kitchen was extremely slow, taking 25-minutes to get out our four (4) brunch orders with the dining room not even one-third filled. Our server did her best to keep us updated but when the food finally arrived is was warm but not hot. With the exception of the Grits, the food was average at best with the French Toast being a total disappointment. The cost was many times higher than the quality of the product served. We will not be returning and will not recommend this to others.

The Yard was great! My boyfriend and I both got Grandma May’s Fried Chicken and we both loved it! It was a piece for boneless fried chicken breast with white gravy on top of mashed potatoes and collard greens. I usually don’t like collard greens but these were great! Would highly recommend!

We were seated immediately, the atmosphere was amazing. Our server Semonia was exceptional. She went out of her way to make our Aunt's birthday special! Our food not only tasted delicious, it was beautiful! The final icing on the cake was when the hostess, Haley asked the manager Elizabeth if we could see the roof top bar. This was a great experience all around, especially getting the private tour of the beautiful bar upstairs. Definitely a "must do" in Birmingham!

They put a lot of thought into their menu and food selection. Preparation was really good and presentation was very nice. Rooftop bar was a great place to start the evening. We should have gone up after dinner to see the city lights. Next time.

The Yard is different. On a Saturday, there was no crowd. The last time I dined at the Yard was about a year ago. It was busy, and the food and menu were very high end. The only thing that remains the same are the prices. In terms of food quality and creativity.....very significant downturn. I asked the bar keep what happened....he said there is a whole new staff running the restaurant. I will absolutely not be back.

Service was very slow, but the food was good. The saffron shrimp was particularly tasty but was $16 for 5 or 6 medium shrimp and a few pieces of toasted baguette slices. We were there for brunch. I had to ask the bartender to get someone to come bring us the bill after we had not seen our waiter for more than 20 minutes or so. We had reservations but had to wait for a while for a table although the table was empty when we got there and there were not many people in the restaurant. It even took 10-15 minutes to get the three orange juices we ordered from the bar while we waited for the table. No other customers were at the bar. Perhaps they were short staffed. One of our group had a good bit of food left and wanted a take out container but it took so long to get the bill that we did not want to wait for anything else. The guy playing the guitar and singing was awesome.

The wedge salad was delicious. I ordered the sea bass. It was served with a really heavy sauce which ruined the taste of the fish. My date ordered the salmon which she said was delicious. The service was lacking tonight as well. Our server didn't check back with us very often. We had to ask another server for additional drinks, and it took 20 minutes to get them. Outrageous.

Had brunch there. Chocolate Omelette was outstanding. The Elyton Breakfast has potential, but the execution flaws killed it. Bacon was cooked to death. Grits were under cooked and crunchy. Biscuit was half raw dough. The grits were tasty, but inedible. The sausage gravy for the under baked biscuit was excellent. Just too many mistakes in execution. Won’t be back.

The venue is wonderful, the food was ok but nothing spectacular at it's price. The service on this particular visit was sub-par although on prior visits there has been excellent service. I have dined at this location several times since it has opened. Unfortunately, the quality of the food and service has declined significantly since is opened. The valet service to dine now has a charge of $7 dollars. That would be a most acceptable price if the equality of their service was good. This was not the case. It took an extended period of time to get may car after dinner. I had to remind the valet three times that I was waiting. It was a slow night and there was only one other person that he was attending. I hope that this was an isolated incident but overall the experience was a disappointment. As it has declined each time that I have returned I more than likely will not go back.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. Both he and I ordered cocktails (the aviation for me and a double shot of redbreast whiskey for him). To our dismay, they were out of both of the alcohols used to make the drinks we ordered. I ordered the eggs in purgatory for my appetizer and it was nasty. I had the bandit salad and salmon for my entree, both of which were very good. The best thing about the yard is the GORGEOUS interior. I felt as if i were in the midst of a restoration hardware catalogue. We had some trouble finding the actual restaurant in the back of the hotel. When we arrived (6-ish), there was no valet outside (or they were busy elsewhere). (we weren't using the valet, just would've helped us get our bearings inside). Nor was there anyone readily at hand inside to ask how to get to the restaurant. This could have been a perk for surprises sake, had I taken the time to pre-scout beforehand. But as it turned out, I felt like a lost, wandering idiot.

Was hesitant of eating at The Yard because of some of the negative comments on Open Table but our friends were in town staying at The Elyton on a Monday night and since a lot of Birmingham restaurants are closed on Mondays, we decided to take a chance and eat here. All four of us had something different – Salmon, Black Grouper, Fried Chicken, and Meatloaf – and we all loved our food - practically licked our plates! The staff were very nice but not hovering while we drank a glass of wine and visited with our friends. I'm not sure why the previous negative comments but we had a delightful dinner in a lovely atmosphere. Would definitely recommend The Yard!

We were staying at the Elyton for our anniversary and figured we would eat here since it was so convenient and we had been before and the food was fantastic. This time it was not. We got there at 7 and there might have been 3 couples eating, which isn't normal for a friday night. Our appetizer was so bad we told the waitress we were done and took our bottle of wine to our room. We most likely wont be back. I'm assuming there was a chef change since we were there last.
