Food was good. Service was good. Noise level was insane. You had to yell to have a conversation. Very unpleasant.

Great place to go for a business lunch. Quick and easy and funny enough, there's so many familiar 'working actor' faces! :-) I loved our server too!

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.

Delicious! I brought my GF here and we enjoyed a nice romantic dinner. Would come back again. I really came here for the ambience. As we were on the patio, next to a warm heat lamp and ambient strung lights. It was very nice. We enjoyed our outing, would definitely come back.

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).

Very delicious. Could be a long wait for Sunday brunch. I used OpenTable from Google Maps and it was super easy. Jenna, our server, was amazing. Her menu recommendations were spot on and she made sure we never saw the bottom of our bottomless mimosas.... Or coffee for that matter. The entire staff was very nice and polite. It was a very comfortable atmosphere, seems though it can get pretty loud depending on the crowd and time of day. Parking is validated and bill will include automatic 15% service charge for staff. They make sure you are very aware of it and it's up to you if you wish to add to that or not, which I'm sure you will wish to because of the attention of the staff and the quality of the food. Definitely going back

The Front Yard was a disappointment to me and my friend. We we're so excited to come because we've been before and the food, service and overall experience in the past has been stellar. Our recent visit was not so good, starting with valet. We had to yell for them to come and then explain that we can afford the $4 cost. Next, they took the grits with cheddar of the menu and replaced with Shrimp and grits. It was not nearly as good. Lastly there was a small then piece of wire in my food. Our server and the manager took care of it and were great about it but the fact that this happened was shocking. Overall I still like the Front Yard and have previously had much better experiences, but we won't be returning anytime soon.
