    We ordered the duck carpaccio it was frozen and it came with like three slices that were equivalent to 2 inches in length. We also ordered the tuna AHI it came with barbecue sauce which was a terrible combination we had to order soy sauce on the side. I ordered the Bolognese it was absolutely terrible watered down pork Mexican styled pasta and it was sitting out for a while because the sauce on the outside dried up. Are waiter Jose was awesome. Overall I would say that I wouldn’t go back to this place for food but maybe for drinks and casual lounging.

    Love the food and wine and outdoor ambiance. The only thing I would change were the flies. I wish there was like a citronella candle to deter them. Otherwise the place and service were great!

    First Had to reserve a table on Friday for a seat on Sunday. When we got to our table it was nice atmosphere, but I noticed a used jelly jar was still on the table. I notified the waitress who quickly took it away. (Kind of gross) I ordered the breakfast burrito, it was your average burrito nothing special about it. I guess I had high expectations because the place is always booked, but the food was mediocre. The servers were nice but not friendly. I probably wouldn't go back.

    We made a reservation midweek for lunch to celebrate our son’s graduation. Our waiter was most kind and understanding when our son was very late for lunch. The food was great, as well as the ambiance on the patio area. We highly recommend The Front Yard!

    After frequenting this restaurant many times, unfortunately, we will not be returning. We arrived a little early for our reservation and were greeted with “we will not be able to seat you until your reservation time.” Even though, the restaurant was practically empty and easily 20 empty tables were available at that time. After waiting 20 minutes to be seated, the server greeted us with “you’ll need to order everything at once, that’s how we do it here”. So as if to say, we’re trying to turn the tables quickly and don’t want people hanging out ordering in courses. Next up, I ordered the kids burger for my son and asked if they could add a tomato to it - “sure, there’s an extra charge for that.” We also ordered the hummus plate which came with a ton of hummus and 5 pieces of pita. When we asked if we could get a few more pieces of pita - “sure, there’s an extra charge for that.” And lastly, the manager of the restaurant checked in on us while I was dealing with a fly drowning in my glass of wine. I finally was able to get the fly out of the wine and place it on a plate. The manager offered to take the plate away but didn’t offer to get me a fresh glass of wine. The real bummer is it’s a nice place with outdoor seating, conveniently located, and the food is ok. But after this many strikes in one evening (and I don’t think they were just having an off night), we’ll spend our money elsewhere.

    This is a great place for patio dining, especially for lunch and brunch. The menu avoids the exotic or the peculiar, and might be wrongly dismissed as offering just "comfort food," but the dishes are well prepared and presented and always tasty. Service is attentive and prompt. There is a certain rigidity regarding reservations (the hostess would not sit our party of two until the clock struck the precise time of ours, even the table we occupied was visibly unoccupied and ready for seating), but I rated this a minor sin.

    One guest ordered a medium-cooked hamburger. She was served one with too much pink color and sent it back. They came back to say the next try got cooked too well, so they had to start over. The other 2 guests were almost finished when the hamburger finally came out. Otherwise, the food was all very good.

    Can't give five stars all around because in our party of 6, one person's food arrived late and actually burnt, and another's arrived cold. BUT everything else was quite delicious (and was on a previous visit). It was a bit frustrating that they wouldn't debone the yummy branzino though they explained it was due to Covid concerns. This strikes me as odd, since simply plating the dish would seem to provide the same exposure, but I mention it just in case you don't want to order something you must debone yourself. The item itself is beautifully presented and tasty. These problems are why I am only rating the food a three in this review, but definitely most dishes are inventive and well-prepared. So, the service that brought the food cold and seemed to be very slow whenever there was a request (coffee got cold while waiting for sugar request to arrive) may again have been an anomaly that wasn't the server's fault. I still want to give 4 stars because when we did bring all the issues to the manager's attention, he was very pleasant and willing to make it right for us. It is an expensive place to eat, but everyplace is now! If you want a nice outdoor ambiance it's definitely worth a try and I will go again. (must request an outdoor table if you are reserving, otherwise you may be inside, which looks pleasant and comfortable, but I think the outside setup is the big draw.)

    Great brunch spot with the girls. Would recommend the mimosa pitcher (they put the whole bottle of champagne in there, so plan to eat something too, haha) Robert was our server, and he was fantastic! If you plan to go during the daytime this summer, try to eat inside if it’s after noon, the heat was a lot even in the shade. Loved that they also helped with parking/valet, so if you self-park it’s free but if you choose to valet, it’s only ~$5 :) Great experience all-around and can’t wait to come back!

    We weren’t able to get seated before I had to take my father (visiting from out of state) back to Union Station. I was really disappointed because we eat there all the time and frequently stay at the Garland. At least he got to see the gift shop 🫤

    We sat outside by the fireplace and it’s a gorgeous set up. Drinks were good, food was average. Service was terrible. Our waiter would disappear and we had to ask other waiters to order. The ambience absolutely is gorgeous and you feel like you are at a resort type of a restaurant. I would come back and give it another try.

    Great atmosphere. Great service and Great Food! Noise level, even with a full house at dinner time, is not so overpowering that you cannot have a decent conversation at your table. The quality of the food, from great cocktails to the freshness of the food served (obviously farm to table) will have me returning again and again...

    It was very hot. And many people want to dine outside due to the uptick in Covid cases. The umbrellas appear to be the kind you can’t slant to accommodate for the movement of the sun. You need misters Front Yard.! The restaurants in Palm Springs have them-it can’t be that expensive to install them. Or maybe you need to put up a gazebo top and install ceiling fans. It’s going to get a lot hotter this summer.
