excellent , great service. My second time there. I wanted my burger well done no pink inside it came as pink inside , the reason I went back to this restaurant because my berger was well done on my first visit . I will go back again but if they mess up my burger I will not go back and will not recommend . I do recommend your establishment to my friends and family , I am giving another chance to chef. How difficult it is to make a burger well done???
Cheers,

The ambience is very nice and our wait staff was very good..attentive and friendly.

The menu is limited and a bit over priced for the items offered.

Drinks were excellent, but we had a long wait for both the first and second rounds.

Great experience! Made a reservation for a birthday breakfast with 5 guests on a Saturday; arrived about 15 mins early and we were seated immediately. Loved the environment and thoughtful touches like a mask caddy and hand wipes. Food was great too; Nutella Stuffed French Toast is a great item to share with the table.

Very cute and cozy spot! Went in last night for my boyfriend's birthday. The staff were so friendly. They tables and utensils were extra clean. The bathroom was also clean. Our waiter was Travis, a very sweet and professional guy. We ordered the cucumber press (my favorite!) a long island, the wild mushroom flatbread and Mary's half chicken. Everything was sooo tasty! Mary's half chicken really tasted like home, The combination of the sweet potato mash and the sauce was amazing. Unfortunately, my boyfriend had an allergic reaction to the mushroom flatbread, I'm not sure to which ingredient. Travis called the manager (another sweet and professional guy) we gave them a list of allergens but none of them seemed to be in the flatbread. Anyways, we couldn't find out which ingredient it was but too bad he couldn't enjoy that heavenly flatbread. Although the allergic reaction is nothing that the restaurant should be responsible for, they offered us another dish free of charge! That was so sweet of them and we appreciated it so much. Will definitely come back here :)

We went to Front Yard to celebrate our granddaughter’s birthday. My husband and I ordered patty melts at medium and they came out rare and were cold. I ordered fries with no seasoning because of an allergy issue and they were covered in seasoning. Our granddaughter’s food did not arrive when our meals did and it took repeated requests to our server over the course of 25 minutes to find out what happened to it. It finally arrived and was okay. When we ordered dessert we were initially told they had changed to the happy hour menu and there was only vanilla ice cream. We asked if he could check fir sure. After 10 minutes, the waiter returned and said there were a full range of choices as listed on the lynch menu The waiter comped some of our items but we expect better from this place which has been good on other occasions.

My daughters 15th birthday dinner with friends. Loved this place the ambiance, the food, the fountain everything really! Max seating is 6 due to Covid but it worked out perfectly as all the teenagers enjoyed seating without the adults lol. It will be a memorable moment for my daughter.

We went there for GNO. Loved the patio with all the lights. The food was really good. We ordered the hummus, octopus, roasted olives, 3 of the flatbreads and a wedge salad and shared all the dishes between 4 of us. Our Server Taylor was very Nice. Will definitely come back again.

Love the venue and the service is good. The food is incredibly bland. We each got something different and all of it was missing flavor. The steak tasted like the ahi tasted like the short rib. Should be an easy fix… but we’ll see

The food was great, the service was even better! A table a few over had a loud show playing on their ipad, would have been nice had staff told them to turn the volume down. Otherwise, fantastic evening out!
Highly recommend to anyone looking for a lovely night out!

Service was slow and honestly below our expectations. Drinks took way too long to come and even after multiple reminders things were missed on our drinks - like salt on rim, no sweet cocktails etc.
also, I had requested for a nice table in our reservation and even called ahead for a good location and was assured that would be the case - but upon getting there …. We were given a pretty below average spot. There were still other spots / tables in better locations open…

We booked a reservation to stay several nights at nearby hotel, The Garland, and saw photos of The Front Yard on its website, thinking it would be a lovely setting for a summer’s evening dinner. We were seated on the patio next to the fireplace surrounded by olive trees, orange lantana, succulents, and decorative touches. It was sure to be “California dining” at its best!

We enjoyed a round of Happy Hour cocktails and several appetizers with Server, Travis, giving us pleasant and professional service. As we had made dinner reservations, we remained at the same table and were told that Server Frankie would be taking care of us for dinner. This was not the case. Instead, we were acknowledged by a female Server whose name began with a “V”, although she never introduced herself. Her appearance was rather off-putting as she approached our table with two face masks PLUS a face shield. She never offered a second cocktail, wine, or other beverage, nor did she suggest an appetizer or a starter salad. She simply asked if we “were ready to order”. There was no friendly small-talk or questions about our visit to the area. (We were in town to visit Universal Studios.) While Miss “V” was not rude, she certainly did not make us feel welcome, valued, or special. In our opinion, she was simply “an Order Taker”. She made no attempt to “romance the food” or name her personal favs. We are normally very generous tippers, however, at the end of this meal, leaving even 10% was too much. The food was tasty, but not outstanding.

Meanwhile, at the table just behind us, a table of 3 women friends were being warmly greeted by THEIR Server—Frankie. Although he wore a face mask, his eyes “smiled”as a looked genuinely happy to see this party. We could hear him suggest drinks and offer appetizers. He laughed with the women and engaged them in conversation. He even took their photo!

TFY would do themselves a favor by training ALL waitstaff more effectively to offer “Guest 1st” service.

The patio is pretty but really loud. There were only 4 of us but I found it difficult to hear the conversation.
I ordered fish tacos and was surprised to have 2 small shrimp in each taco and a skimpy portion of the pineapple salsa. The fries were outstanding. The Hamburger my friend ordered looked really good.
The servers were all very nice! The food came out rather slow.
