Excellent service, great food, tasty bottomless mimosas, relaxing tranquil patio dining that was very pet friendly. Highly recommended for brunch.

I would have given 5 stars if not for the hostess basically saying we couldn't get a booth because walk in people were waiting for them (even though we had a reservation). So we sat at a table kind of in the middle of everything. The first one has AC blowing right on it, so we moved one over. Other than that, the food was delicious and the server was great.

We made reservations for a Bday brunch and there were 11 of us. We had such a wonderful time and I'm glad that we were seated in a private room so we could talk loud and laugh. Our server Alan took such great care of us and I would highly recommend this place and gladly come again!

Four of us came for Sunday brunch. None of us were thrilled about the menu selection. Service was okay, but the waiter was a bit ditzy. My husband ordered Huevos Rancheros and asked if he could have his eggs scrambled instead of sunny side up. The waiter told us he was new and he had to check with the kitchen. Told us they were very strict about special requests and he wasn't sure if they could scramble them. We all looked at each other wondering "seriously?" He finally came back and said no problem...like he was doing us a favor. Just strange. The TFY benny with the braised short rib was not great. Way too much meat compared to egg and bland. Avocado toast was just okay and the measly fried egg on top was rubbery. $5 bloody marys were a great price, but you got what you paid for...not good. All four of us agreed we were underwhelmed by the food and service. Maybe we just had a bad table on a bad day, but will probably not return.

Thanksgiving meal was nice but the service was slow. Waiter was not coming back to check on us. We waited for our coffee and then they ran out and we waited to get our check. We had to keep looking for the server and flag him down.

Disappointed with Thanksgiving this year. This was not as good as it use to be. Stuffing was so watery. Ham and Fish were very spicy. Not sure why??? Poor food compared to before. Why would you have ice cream set up for Thanksgiving, didn't make sense. The Mother's Day and Easter set up was way better. Prior Thanksgivings were great but this year was quite disappointing. I will think twice about going back.

We were so pleasantly surprised by this local find. It's down the street from where we live and this is going to be our new go-to. The food was excellent, the ambiance was romantic, but not overly intimate. We were on a date, but there were groups of every type around us, including families with children. But it's incredibly spacious, so you don't feel overwhelmed. The food was excellent and definitely recommend the strawberry shortcake for dessert. Will be back.

beautiful patio setting--Food was good, not great, but good. I had the short rib tacos, a little too msuhy and my friend had the Thai salad which looked short on noodles, but lots of shrimp.
The fig and gruyere flat bread was tasty although short on cheese.

The burgers looked very good.

I had high hopes for this place. It seemed excellent and the patio was super cute, we should have requested to sit outside.

It was my birthday so my husband and I wanted a nice meal. The cocktails were creative and we really enjoyed them, unfortunately they showed up after our appetizer was almost gone. The appetizer was excellent though - the chorizo flatbread was a winner! Then we wanted to get a bottle of wine with our entree but after our meal was delivered we finally heard that the bottle we ordered was sold out. Once we finally got the glasses we ordered as a replacement, we started our meal and found that the ravioli we were served was not fully cooked (more than al dente and extremely cold/frozen in the center). The server took the entree off our bill but the whole experience really put a damper on our nice birthday meal. I’m not sure we would return.

Took team there for lunch. Food was great. Both vegetarian and burger dishes looked and tasted fantastic. Ambiance had a great vibe without being too noisy. The weather was nice so they had the partition between patio and inside seating open which allowed for a nice slight breeze and the sun come indoors. We will definitely go back there again.

The drinks, ambiance, and service I gave more stars since it was the highlight. We sat outside and truly appreciate the host staff for finding us a great table.
The food.... not so amazing. We ordered several things recommended : chop shop salad, mushroom flatbread, and a short rib dish. It was all ok. Nothing too bad or too good. Just ok. It may be that is brunch menu. Maybe other menu times may be better.

He really enjoyed he casual yet fun vibe of the place! Our waitress (forgot her name!) was an absolute delight. Thank you to your team!

Stayed at hotel - took 45 mins to get a drink-food came before my drink even did - was not impressed with outside dining - should have sat inside - I think it was just the table they sat us at that sucked-bloody mary was gross - sent it back (no wonder they were $5)-didn't get a pop tart (ran out -only reason I wanted to cone here)-mediocre overpriced food-not worth a special trip-edible food but nothing to write home about or noteworthy.

Part of the reason we stayed at the Garland hotel, was due to the "farm to table" restaurant located in the hotel. Our servers and wait staff were phenomenal. We would go back simply for that. Attentive, friendly, hospitable, and just all around good people. The food was touted as "farm to table," BUT when we get frozen processed fries, kind of kills that appeal. Deviled eggs and brussels were mediocre, the mushroom flatbread and flat iron steak were amazing!!! Some of the ingredients you can tell were local and great, but you can tell not all ingredients were. Will definitely go back, but my farm to table expectations will be tempered
