    Great outdoor space! A good location for cocktails, however stay away from the food, not good at all. Very underwhelming food experience considering the nice patio. Food was uninspired and under seasoned.

    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.

    Mocktails were too sour and pork chop was dry…was really rooting for this place but it’s clear that it’s really a scene to be seen kinda place vs prioritizing quality. Hope they’ll do better all around for food and drink quality.

    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.

    I love the Front Yard. The food is always delicious and the atmosphere is a 10. However it was slammed and service was subpar. I had to ask the host stand several times for assistance with drinks, dessert and paying the bill. I would definitely come back however I hope they can figure out the staffing/their logistic challenges.

    We’ve been looking for restaurant for Father’s so we decided to make a reservation to the FRONT YARD the one in NORTH HOLLYWOOD we check in on time we got the table, and half an hour later there’s no service, so I decided to us the manager, what happened to the server, it was BAD EXPERIENCE, the SERVICE IS BAD, THE FOOD IS NO GOOD, THE PLACE SMELLS, and when I got bill the tip is already added, I don’t think they deserve a tip, we never recommend this place to anybody.

    Made reservations on open table. Very easy. After checking in, I asked if it would be possible if we could be near a window, hostess was very nice and said not to worry. Upon seating, did not get a seat near the window. Where I sat didn’t bother me, but I would have appreciated it if the hostess could have just been upfront or said, I will see what I can do. Seemed a little short staffed, the food took a bit to come out. Taste was good. I got the pastrami Benedict (very good), my kids got the bolognese (meh) and chicken fingers (tasty). I would possibly come back again.

    Was pleasantly surprised, and honestly wowed, by the ambiance, food, and service! Every single thing we had to eat was absolutely delicious, and the service was stellar. It’s rare to find a restaurant that has everything in one, but The Front Yard truly checks all these boxes. Plus, parking is free for 3 hours and the prices are VERY fair for this level of a restaurant (we thought we were incorrectly charged initially because the bill was so affordable!)
