Great space...if you are looking for a place to meet friends I recommend it, but don’t expect to actually hear what they say....very noisy. However, the food and service were great. We sat in the “back room” where it is supposed to be less noisy, but there was a large group of at least 20 next to us so we ended up shouting at each other.

It was one of our favorite places, however, despite the fact that the ambiance is still nice, the food got tasteless, served cold, and they decided to charge two separate tips 15% to the house and additional tip to server. Suffice it to say this was our last visit to this place.

I'd been wanting to try this neighborhood gem for a long time and finally got the chance to last weekend. Everything we ordered was great and the ambience is just lovely. It's my new favorite neighborhood restaurant that I can't wait to bring friends and family to in the future.

Not a good experience at all. They were very busy for a Wednesday night and maybe they were understaffed, but service was terrible and way too slow - it took 25 minutes just to get our food order in, they never refilled our water or even cleared our appetizer dishes away, so we had to rearrange the dirty dishes on our table ourselves to make room for the entrees. And those dirty appetizer plates and platters sat on our table until we left - nothing got cleared or bussed the entire time. They brought the incorrect orders to our table more than once - it seemed totally disorganized from start to finish. The food was okay but several things were under seasoned, and I don’t think it was worth the price at all. One of the more expensive meals I’ve had in a while but by far the worst service I’ve seen at a sit down restaurant maybe ever.

Loved this place! I brought my girl here for a date night. We enjoyed everything, food, lights, patio everything was beautiful! Service was great from both our waiter and the hostesses. If you want to come here, make a reservation or not you’re just going to be waiting and waiting. I made a reservation and We we’re seated at the time I had set and my girlfriend loved it because of the area we were sitting at (in the patio, under hanging lights, on a nice little outdoor sofa). A few people gave the hostesses a hard time and people were so demanding, sadly they missed out and walked away. Next time they should just make a reservation instead of being pretentious jerks.
Would definitely come again!!

I love the ambiance,food and service here! Even when there was an issue with sitting outside and another table moved the umbrellas to give themself shade on the patio. Immediately the service crew came out and corrected the issue with accommodating them to sit inside if the patio wasnt a good fit.

This place was such a pleasant surprise. My girlfriend and I found it by searching online for close restaurants near us. The menu looked good online but was much better in person. They had just recently changed to their fall menu and it was DELICIOUS! We started with the pear and goat cheese salad that had the most tasty crouton I've ever had. The textures were on point and flavor did not disappoint. From the chorizo flat bread to the flank iron steak, it was all amazing. And their secret menu drink with the mezcal, thai chili, and vanilla was a top 10 drink for my girlfriend. Highly recommend this place.

I’ve been here numerous times before and loved it but this was the first time we had absolutely awful service. The waiter was rude and gave us a hard time about ordering food, etc. disappeared for extended periods. Forgot orders and then got upset with us when we asked where things were. Hopefully that’s not a normal thing but was disappointed.

The ambience was really nice. The food was average. It seemed like they put spices on everything to make it spicy. The strawberry fields drink was delicious however the price for the serving size was outrageous.

Everything was excellent except we had reservations and we wanted to sit outside. There were several openings including the very long table. There were 5 people sitting next to the fireplace and we asked to sit at the opposite end. We were told we couldn’t. So we sat at a large table on the inside patio. Later 2 guests with babies were seated where we wanted. If outside seating is available, it should be given to reserved guests!

Our party of eight had a great time at the Front Yard. A good part of our experience was being with friends who had not seen each other. However, our experience with the attentive wait staff was excellent and everyone enjoyed the food and presentation. Our only nit was that we sat at a round table and often were unable to hear the conversation at our own table. We did not let that interfere with the experience.

I love the food here. it’s such great ambiance. But heads up you’ll order an app of some kind and then you’ll wait at least 40 minutes for your main course. And the waiter doesn’t check on your for quite some time. It’s a little brutal.

Amazing dining experience. Beautiful deco on the outdoor and indoor.

Came to celebrate a friend's engagement.

Wife and I ordered cheese biscuits that took 12 minutes to bake, it was so good! Super cheesy and flaky.

For entree, we went with the dry age new York steak. You can taste the dry aged portion, when you bite into the steak. Very juicy, and tender.

For dessert, we went with chocolate cremebrule with custard, it was yummy. You get chocolate that is semi bitter paired with sweet macaroons cheese.

Very busy restaurant can get a bit noisy. Food average nothing to write home about. Value very pricey for who they are. I had the fried chicken way over price for two pieces. To much breading and very little meat. Would I go back there again? Not sure!

We had an excellent meal at the front yard. Our server Arnold was attentive & friendly. The food was exceptional — the mushroom flatbread and grilled octopus were a hit, but the 12 Minute Cheese Biscuits stole the show! We will definitely be back!

This was my third time here, and it did not live up to my previous experience. My Bloody Mary was pretty tasteless and my food mediocre. Our server did not come by during the meal and we had to ask someone to get her to bring our bill. It is a beautiful spot. That part you can't beat. Probably not going to return.

Overall a really great date spot, just be aware they include 15% gratuity no matter how large your party is, which apparently is split amongst the staff. According to our server, any additional gratuity we add goes directly to your server.
