Excellent service, tasty and very reasonable pricing. Coffee can be a little stronger but that’s just a personal preference :)

I usually love this place, but I went with a friend on a Friday afternoon. The shoshito peppers were barely cooked, so we sent them back. We were pretty much done with lunch when our waiter asked if we had ever gotten them back. We said No, and not to bring them, don't worry about it, we had plenty to eat without them. He brought them back to the table anyway. We said he could just take them back, we really were too full by that point. Then, we were charged for them. The waiter was right there to change the bill in a second, but there should not have been a charge for those peppers even if we had accepted them at the end of the meal, and eaten them all. It was a beautiful day, great atmosphere, fairly noisy. Glad I made a reservation, it was crowded. I was a little disappointed this time, but I will still go back. My friend really likes The Front Yard a lot.

I've been dying to come here for a while and finally made it for brunch this past Sunday. I'm a sucker for ambience and this place has loads of it. Super pretty design both inside and out, down to the glasses and mugs and water bottle. I had the Nutella french toast and practically wanted to curl up in a fetal position from how delicious it was. Definitely lively and a little noisy, but I look forward to coming back.

Every moment was bliss! From the moment we drove up I knew we had a made a great decision to dine here. Walking in the Host was a little busy when we arrived however, once his matter was settled he welcomed us and seated us and he prompt, friendly with a great smile. our server was Nikki and she was also great, she didn't keep walking up to the table just gave us our space and was there when we needed her. The Food was exceptional and I mean that!

We will definitely be returning.

First time here since the property's remodel and really loved the ambiance of the place. Lots of various seating options from booths to tables to bar area seating. Lots of both outdoor and indoor seating too. While we came for Saturday lunch, you could tell its probably a really cute pretty spot at night too.
We both ordered the Eggs Benedict and although not bad, there really wasn't much flavor? Menu description sounded great but felt a bit bland. Again, not bad but will try something else next time.
Service was great though and the feel of the place is really really nice, will be returning for sure!

I would have given this 5 stars if it wasn’t for the issue we had checking in. We got there before our reservation at 1:45p and stated it was an open table reservation and the hostess said they would come get us. About 15 minutes pass and no one has gotten us. I went to the host and no one knew about our whole party being there. Shortly after got an email from OpenTable I was a no show. Not cool. Other than that the ambiance was great and the food was pretty good. Bottomless mimosas got cut off at 3p so either get there early enough or tell your waiter to keep coming by as you pound them down. Overall great experience and would go back again.

Too much of a party scene for me. I’m 55 and didn’t really want to see a bunch of scantly clad 20 something’s while on my date!
I cook. Their “bolognese on tagliatelle” was neither. More like canned sloppy joe meat on linguini. They need a pasta chart to know the different pasta shapes. Bolognese was Luke warm over cold out of the box linguini. Yuk. Dessert was good. Appetizer was ok. Next time it’s drinks only in the patio during the summer.

Great spot for outdoor dining - had a nice meal and stayed after to enjoy our wine (without being rushed out the door). The waiter was nice - but, as other reviews have mentioned, the service was a little slow. That said, it didn't matter to us, as it was a nice night and we were in such a great outdoor space - we enjoyed the evening and the ambience. Will definitely be back...

The Front Yard has been a favorite of mine since they opened over two years ago. Unfortunately they have lost their way. The chef is beyond terrific, so inventive, our issue is not with the food but with everything else.

We ate at the Front Yard during their Easter Brunch. We booked through Open Table for 2:45. What they do not tell you is that the brunch is only served till 3:30. Much to our surprise when we got up for our second round and the buffet had been cleared.

Our waitress did not even mention that they were cutting off service at 3:30. Though we did not even get a second helping or make it to the desserts, our waitress charged us the full-price $55.00 and didn't even apologize.

The Front Yard also put on an 18% surcharge! For a buffet? Unheard of. And the wait staff does not alert you to this fact.

Once the wait staff was the best in town. All those veterans are gone and the new ones are not cutting it.

Maybe Beverly Garland's children, who run the property, will do something to fix what has transpired at the Front Yard.

The ambiance and service at The Front Yard were phenomenal. Our group of six were greeted and seated immediately and our waiter was very attentive and informative. General consensus of the group was that we would definitely return. However, although we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals at the time, two members of our group became violently ill that evening. As they both shared the same appetizers and entree, we have pretty well narrowed it down to one of those items perhaps being the culprit.

We had mixed feelings about our visit. Hostess was with quite an attitude and not very attentive. She made us wait for the wrong table and was very unhappy we asked to sit by the fire even though no one was sitting there all night. Our waiter was absolutely great and attentive! Food was amazing and came out extremely fast!

This was my favorite place to brunch. Unfortunately, this experience was awful. There were a bunch of extremely loud drunk folks that made it hard to hear at our own table. Some of the food was cold when it arrived at the table. I hate to say this but I probably wont go back and it used to be my favorite place
