    The Front Yard is ALWAYS perfect for lunch! From the Hostess Team to the Wait Staff, everyone is extremely friendly and accommodating. Food is always delish and you just cant top the atmosphere both on the patio and inside. Truly love this gem of a restaurant tucked away in the Garland Hotel. I plan to book dinner there soon.

    A lovely place to have lunch with friends. A lot of people agree, which is why it can get noisy. Try to pick a time that isn't square in the middle of the lunch hour. Food, service, and ambience are pitch perfect.

    Its the most welcoming place , the ambiance of the patio is special and a gem for the Studio City, Universal City, Toluca Lake and North Hollywood neighborhood. Easy on site parking to boot. You will be pleasantly surprised by the level of food and beverage - the kitchen is not shy to put out some great tweaks on classics , and create new dishes. The service is warm and professional. Definitely a well managed operation and delightful restaurant for all occasions. Casual yet attentive. Go!

    We started off our brunch with the deviled eggs. They had a nice smokey taste. Amazing! I had the egg white scramble. Delicious! My friend ordered the short rib hash. Lots of great flavors. We washed it down with a pitcher of Sunshine Spritz. Our waitress Alicia was attentive and recommended some yummy choices. It was my friends birthday and Alicia presented her with a cake pop with a candle to celebrate. We will be back soon.

    Unfortunately as expressed to the manager every check in experience we have had here was a very pretentious one. When we showed up the place was completely empty, seating was very much available but the host refused to seat us where we were requesting. They said they are expecting a full house, we stated we would not be long. Then the manager after some argument decided to seat us at a couch but said, no dinner. I told him happy to order the most expensive plate but he again said happy hour menu only no dinner. It was very rude, unwelcome and that has been consistent. It’s unfortunate because we live walking distance but never want to go here because without a reservation the host never wants to accommodate even if the place is empty. Do not recommend this restaurant unless you make a reservation. I made this reservation while standing there and regardless of them telling me there’s no availability there was hence us being able to make this reservation. in fact there were options for 2 well into the evening 5pm, 5:15, 5:30, 6:45 & every 15min. thereafter.

    This place is amazing. My only complaint is the 6 menus per day. I want what I want when I'm paying for it. They need to offer all their food at all times. Depending on the time of day, you might miss out on some of their best food.

    We normally enjoy The Front Yard and came for an evening birthday dinner, reservation at 7pm. Unfortunately we were seated next to a very large table/party where several of the guests were very drunk, loud and rude. Our 9-year-old son was with us, and had to listen throughout the evening to cursing and loud, inappropriate stories. As the rowdy group drank more and more, the noise level just continued to grow. We remarked to our waiter and he agreed that it was hard to even hear the guests at his tables when they asked for things. We would have left sooner, but the kitchen seemed backed up by this large group too… we waited nearly an hour for our food. Our waiter was kind and kept apologizing and updating. I had ordered the bolognese pasta which eventually came out lukewarm and stuck together—it had been sitting too long in the kitchen. To avoid spending any more time than necessary next to the rude guests, we ate quickly and quietly, declined dessert and left. Our waiter did sweetly bring a little cake pop with a candle and leaned far into our table so we could actually hear each other sing “happy birthday.” This is normally a local favorite, but perhaps is becoming a different kind of dining experience—our reservation was at 7, but it was very loud and not appropriate for a child at that early hour.

    We enjoyed everything we ate during our dinner at The Front Yard. Be prepared to spend some $$$, but the quality of the food supports the rate (especially in LA). I had the brussel sprouts, 12-minute cheese biscuit, the filet (with tasty mushroom sauce), and smashed fingerlings. I wasn't wild about the fingerlings, but everything else was SUPER yummy. I also enjoyed the blackberry cocktail, and one of the cabs they had on their wine-by-the-glass menu. My fellow diners enjoyed the deviled eggs (not my thing), the bacon-cheese biscuits, the tagliatelle, short rib, and mushroom flatbread. They also had the strawberry cocktail and the Garland 1972. Everyone really enjoyed their meals, and it was a nice place to catch up with old friends while we ate. I would highly recommend getting a reservation, as it looked like there were quite a few folks waiting for tables when we arrived.

    The food is good here, but the service staff needs more training. Our server couldn't have been nicer or warmer -- but didn't seem to be around when she was needed. A plate was set in front of me with a very large chip out of the rim -- and while I had a friendly conversation with the manager about it later, that really shouldn't be allowed. The soup bowl seemed as small as the cup - just served in a larger vessel. I strongly recommend the flatbreads -- very, very tasty.

    Front Yard has good energy and a good vibe. Patio is very comfortable. The food was very good overall, however our service across the board came across as annoyed. Everyone except the bus staff was distracted and generally seemed to be counting the minutes til they could leave.

    The find was a pleasant surprise. The aesthetic was vibey, the staff were friendly, and the food was delicious. Went on a Saturday while brunch was still available. My wife is a Huevos Rancheros connoisseur and is very picky at all the restaurants we go to that offer that dish. Needless to say, she definitely approves this dish at the front yard. Overall, it was a pleasant surprise, the location, the quality, the ambiance, the options; we will definitely be back.

    I had reserved a table for 4 and we were having great service with Alicia. She was knowledgeable and courteous. She was very attentive to us as a whole. We did take our time to eat while we were enjoying our mimosas. I noticed a woman looking at our table with a stare that I would say wasn’t so nice. She approached our table and asked us to leave! We felt quite embarrassed since we were spending money and not just sitting taking up space. My friends and I were having a good time and did not feel we were in any way un classy. We told our server what had occurred and we told her that we loved her service but felt bad about the manager asking us to leave. A few minutes she came back and withdrew her request. Soon after we paid our bill and left. I don’t think I’ll be going there again. It’s unfortunate because I did like the food and the ambiance. We tipped our server well too. More than the standard of 20% since I was once a server myself and know what is like to do this work.
