I’ve frequented this restaurant multiple times. This visit made me like this place more. Two thumbs up for doing an excellent job with infection control and prevention during this pandemic. They even provide a little brown bag for use as a mask caddy.

And as always, great food along with the beautiful patio ambiance.

The service was really good overall and the ambience was really cute. I loved their patio. But the food was not that great. The mac & cheese we got tasted more like Alfredo. And the chicken was not very flavorful at all it doesn’t seem like they use that many spices or seasonings. Overall I would probably go back for drinks but not so much for the food.

The food was just ok. But wasn't expecting to pay as much as we did. Especially with the description of $$. I would definitely consider it $$$.

As always, the service and food were delightful! We sat a little too close to one of the fans, so our conversation was a little difficult to dive into. I was there for lunch with a friend. I had also been there recently with two friends for dining, on a beautiful warm evening. I don't remember it being as difficult, the sound level, that visit.

Have been to this restaurant before Covid and it was a great spot fun lively and the food was amazing. picnic tables and outdoor mix and match lost the moment. Food was ok - smoked fried chicken, trying to hard - good fried chicken is simple.
I will go back

This was our first time stopping in at this LA gem and we absolutely loved it! The food and cocktails were amazing, staff was wonderful and the outdoor garden area beautiful and relaxing. My favorite cocktail was the Blackberry Sage Shrub, but the Strawberry Fields was so yummy and the Cucumber Press was refreshing and unique, I can’t wait to try the others when we return! The indoor space was so pretty, although not open for seating yet. They are very diligent on sanitizing and social distancing for our safety, which I appreciated. They even have disposable mask “caddy” totes to store your mask at the table and The Garland Hotel provided sanitizer wipes... their little extra in the details added to the charm of this gorgeous place.

I normally love this place, have been several times. I booked a 2pm reservation for myself and my boss to take a very important client to lunch. We were told we'd have 90 minutes to eat, but it turned out that the restaurant basically closed at 3 and we were left totally alone after that. We were warned when we sat down that we needed to order quickly but they shouldn't have said we'd have 90 min, they gave us 60. Food was good and staff was mostly friendly, but I was disappointed in the overall experience.

I had the crab salad, potato leek soup and banana pudding. Lovely tastes. My friend's veg with pretty green vegan hummus was enticing. The rose was a comfort.

Such a wonderful night! We have been out to eat only a handful of times in the last year and 3 of them have been to The Front Yard. Their COVID safety protocols are excellent and really not intrusive. As always we had excellent service and the food was wonderful!

Easter Sunday brunch was horrible.....so disappointed. Not sure what happened, but it was an epic fail in service, food, seating set up, etc. I have had 2 very good experiences prior to this one, but for a $50.00 per person 3 course brunch, it was a complete rip-off. There may be new management, because they really didn't care that we didn't get water for 15 mins after sitting down, they sat us in a corner when we went there to sit under the trees in the courtyard. Then...the food...was horrible tasting. The main course options where the worst....and our party of 4 tried one of each, so it was not like just one item was bad. Basically they were unorganized, rude and charged wayyyy too much for bad tasting food. I will never go back there again. :(

Just the perfect day for a birthday brunch. It was the first time in a year we've been able to go out with our friends, enjoy great cocktails and food that we didn't have to cook or clean up after. It was heavenly!
