Great food, with great service limited to other things but it’s due to COVID-19.

We were in town visiting our daughter and her boyfriend and stayed at The Garland Hotel. We had brunch at the front yard and it was delicious and the ambience was perfect. I loved the mimosas!

Food was great as always. Had the rib eye for two. Wasn't pleased that the cook refused to substitute vegetables instead of the shisito peppers that came with the meal since no one in our party likes shisito peppers. Making the customer happy should be a priority. Atmosphere is beautiful at night. Service was OK. Received better attention from bus boys than our waitress who seemed like she wanted to be somewhere else. Gave the 5 star review for the food and atmosphere.

What an amazing dinning experience!! I had the distinct honor to be invited to dine here this evening. Despite covid, this establishment took every measure to ensure everyone's safety. After being welcomed and seated to our table, we took in the beautiful ambiance, lush seating and meditative running water. Our server Frankie provided exceptional service and was very invested in making sure our experience was extraordinary, of which it was.
We ordered the house salad, octopus, charcuterie board, accompanied by an exquisite house red and then indulged in the flank steak (cooked to perfection) and seasoned fries. Everything was exceptionally delicious, one of the best dinning experiences I have had. The food, service, ambiance and overall experience exceeded my expectations. Thank you !!! ...I will be here a lot more often and make sure to bring friends. Wow just wow !!!!! and i almost forgot - the desserts, crumble with ice cream was to die for

A spot on outdoor pandemic dining experience. The management and staff have set up and provide the safest and most detailed Covid-19 protocol guideline operation that I’ve seen. Been here multiple times and the execution has been consistent.
The food is very good, service attentive and friendly.
But most of all the outdoor dining setup and garden like surroundings give off a great vibe. This isn’t one of those temporary parking lot or sidewalk Al fresco places.

All in all, the Front Yard was pretty good. The food and sevice were both very good. My only complaint is that we wanted reservations for 7:00 PM, and were told that the only opening was at 5:45. When we got to the restaurant, it was basically empty. When we left at about 7:15, only half the tables were taken.

We will try to go back, but, only if we can get the time we request.

Worst possible place to eat. The service is awful. Employees are disrespectful. I had staff harrassing me and my party when I was trying to celebrate my birthday. I was followed all the way out the door and had 3 security members following me and my party. They wanted around us until our ride got around. Constantly hounding us about our mask when we are off the property. It was extremely uncomfortable and uncalled for. I seriously cant believe that happened to me. Me and my party were in no way distrubing the staff or guest. i was extremely confused the entire night. Im very upset. My birthday was ruined.

The atmosphere was gorgeous, so many lights outdoor. The waiter was very friendly and aware of the menu. We got a good spot close to the fireplace. The menu should be probably wider and the 15% service fee was a surprise to us.

The hostess said that they were limiting the tables to 90 min seat times. However, we were probably at our table for 2 hours (minimum). Our dishes were good and we got the pitcher, which is highly recommended. It's such a great value. My friend got the burger and I got the steak & eggs as it was recommended by our server. We were happy with our orders. It did kind of feel like our server forgot about us half way through our meal. She checked on us once our food came out, but left us alone for quite some time. Overall though, we had a nice time and the restaurant truly is practicing the social distancing orders. Thank you!!

This is my favorite place to go before and during COVID. Their staff's guidelines and protocols give me a peace of mind knowing they have considered all safety measures. The way they have expanded their patio area to the parking lot is also gorgeous. The added heat lamps, lounge chairs, string lights, and location not directly near a busy, loud, street is a welcome sight for any one during this unsual time. Thank you to the staff for being so wonderful!

Bonus that they take reservations and now offer FREE parking too. I will be back!
