One of the people at our table asked for a fried egg on their chicken dish. But the server said it's not possible. The kitchen won't do it.

We asked for something chocolate for dessert. Only offered 2 items: a chocolate chip cookie or butterscotch pudding.

Off limitations for a big restaurant.

The food is super tasty. The ambience and outdoor seating is top notch. The property at the Garland Hotel is beautiful. Just don’t ask Chef Greenwood to split a salad onto two share plates.

Elitism at its finest by a Chef who from his servers own description is a little on the “difficult side.” After ordering five to six appetizers, two bottles of wine and our entrees we asked for a kale and Caesar salad, since two of our guests wanted to split the order. This was not about saving money. It was about allowing enough room to eat an amazing meal.

Blasphemy, blasphemy said the elite Chef from Alberta, Canada! The superb salad arrived on one plate with an explanation by the server that Chef WOULD NOT make any exceptions.

This same Chef wouldn’t know good fried chicken if it didn't resemble ginger beef from Canada. Soggy, limp and without flavor is what we were served. We grew up back east along the Mason Dixon Line, less than 150 miles from the Deep South. Come on Chef, if you are going to play the part of a Super Chef, learn to make some crispy chicken in LA.

Plus, manage your kitchen so all of the entrees come out at the same time and your Manager doesn’t have to comp your mediocre French toast carrot cake to make us somehow feel better. Again, soggy , soggy and soggy. Give this guy a new deep fryer.

I had a friend visiting from New York and I wanted him to have nice dining experience. The Front Yard did not disappoint! We were there on Easter Sunday. We had a reservation and only had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. The hostess was very welcoming and that hospitality extended to the bar and to our table. The service was wonderful all away around. The Easter Brunch was scrumptious! So many different dishes to appeal to differ tastes. And reasonably priced. The ambience was lovely. We sat on the patio as it was a pretty day but the indoor seating seemed nice as well. Though, the noise level was increased indoors but not in a negative way. People just talking and laughing, having a good time.
I will definitely be back.

The breakfast buffet was taken out without giving new customers warning or last call. However, the waitress more than made up for it!

A cute location with decent food but would have been nice if our waitress Ever came back to see if we needed coffee and drink refills or anything else we needed. It’s also super loud and made me want to leave. Finally had to find someone to get our check to pay and leave. Won’t be back.

I set up a reservation for my wife's birthday, with teenage kids for dinner, arrived had to wait as was busy, I was asked if I preferred in or out ,replied prefer out if possible but if nothing then in. At time of seating there was a 4 top available in garden area and 4 girls all blitzed out with no reservation were sat and we were given inside. Server was excellent food ok, but nothing passed on for Birthday, little pretentious at host stand and food not worth the price. Ok for 1 time experience would not go again.

It’s an alright place, food was good and drinks were great but the only “BS” was I made Reservation, thinking it would be crowded because it was Saturday night. Reservation was for 615 and it up showing up at 5:30 and the place was empty. Check in thinking that we could get in earlier since it was empty but they still made us wait till 615, when people who are just walking up with no reservations were getting sat down. Other than that it was a cool Places to eat

I really didn't expect to find such a nice place to brunch in the valley. Food was good and nicely varied.
Parking via Valet was great.
Front of house staff was great, though servers seemed a bit overworked.
Only one problem, wanted a dish modified and they said no. I can imagine that if it were a $250 Chef's tasting menu....but even then they care enough to be a chef rather than a cook.

It took about 20 minutes before they realized we haven't been waited on, but no one is perfect so we shrugged it off. They were apologetic and gave us free dessert. The food is nothing short of fantastic, and the prices are reasonable.

Included gratuity was odd, but I understand some people don’t tip and this makes up for it. Personally I would tip 20%, but because 15% was added on I didn’t.

Probably the best hotel restaurant I've ever been in. The staff was pretty new, but extremely friendly. The patio was beautiful as well as comfy, lots of different kinds of seating options so it didn't feel like it was a cookie-cutter design. Plants everywhere made you forget the nearby freeway. The perfect place for a date, or to meet friends. The food was phenomenal. My sister said the scallops were the best she's had in her entire life.

We really enjoyed The Front Yard. The hostess greeted my daughter with an enthusiastic HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! when we checked in for our reservation. The food was really great although my filet was a bit over the temp requested. The strawberry shortcake was delish and on the house for her birthday. We really enjoyed our patio dining experience (especially the gas heating lamps and blanket).
