Had a great evening with friends - outdoor seating in garden surroundings - everyone enjoyed the meals - service was outstanding. The foreground music (evidently was supposed to be background music) was a bit loud for our comfort however, all in all, we highly recommend it.

I went to The Front Yard twice during the pandemic when strong rules were in place and then on the 15th when the city "opened up".. Each time, The Front Yard provided excellent safety measures (including little "add ons" like a bag to hold your mask while eating and a wipe when you leave.
The food, as always, was great and I love the ambience..both inside and on the patio

Very accommodating and helpful service. I ate here with a party of two and the service is genuinely incredible. We requested to move our seating due to the excessive heat and they fulfilled our request with pleasure; the staff genuinely cares about the service brought to their customers. Food was great, a little on the pricey side of course, but a decent portion served. Will definitely be coming back here again!

We were seated promptly and our server was great. I feel like there’s a good value. Only one hiccup, they hadn’t updated their vegan menu so a few items I had ordered were no longer available, but they suggested a few good alternatives. The space (indoor and out) is lovely. Really beautiful. Will go back.

The chef needs to get a better understanding of his restaurant and his clientele. There is not a sandwich on the menu that won't raise your cholesterol. They have a FRIED chicken sandwich - I asked if they could make it a GRILLED chicken sandwich - which, by the way, they SERVE at poolside and room service and on Sundays!! - but the chef refused. He only does fried for the restaurant proper. Absurd. This place ain't the French Laundry. It's burgers and salads, for god sakes! I LOVE coming here, and will continue to, because the staff and service is WONDERFUL, and for the most part I enjoy the food. But I would really like to have a halfway healthy meal, without going all the way to salad. PLEASE?? I've been coming here for years now.

Overall the food was very good, but the sandwich I ordered I doubt it had enough meat in it. I liked the idea that if was not very thick but it should have had a bit more. My friend's food was beautifully presented but the breast was a bit too dry. the ambiance was beautiful and the server was very courteous.

Service was ok. We liked the outdoor space because the tables are not too close and there 's a bit more space in between tables than other restaurants. Please don't change that!. Food is ok. Have come 4 times in the last 6 months (would have visited more often but you were closed and it's hard to reserve a table!) and it's a nice place to have a meal and discuss business at the same time. Thanks!

An excellent choice for both pre and post pandemic times. A lovely outdoor setting with large tables. Best of all the wait staff and the food selection were excellent. Everyone couldn't be nicer, the service couldn't be more professional and the food, A+! Thanks for a great evening for 14 of my friends on my birthday!!

Due to COVID our party of 8 had been forced to book two tables. Without our requesting it, when the restrictions loosened, the restaurant adjusted our reservation to one table of 8. It was a terrific surprise and much appreciated.

Came in for my Birthday. I understand with covid regulations things are different. We made 2 reservations two weeks in advance. We were told that our group would not be able to sit next to each other due to covid (understandable) but they completely sat our group across the entire restaurant with one of us being outside and our other group inside. Okay well we were going to make it work somehow. When we sat outside we notice a bunch of empty tables around us which made no sense why the rest of our party couldn’t just sit outside with us…. Spoke to the hostess again about this and she informed me that it would be to much work for our server to take the rest of our party. So your telling me BEFORE COVID, a family of 12 walks in and the hostess is going to deny service to that family because “it’s too much for the server to handle?”
Again we brushed it off and continued with our morning
I asked for the brunch menu and I was told I could not order off that menu until 11 (mind you at this point it was 10:15) which was the only time we could get a reservation….. I then asked for mimosas and again I was told we could not order that until 11. I asked the server if we can just wait outside and put our name on the list again (after 11) he told us we wouldn’t be able to since we need a reservation to be seated. At this point everything was just so frustrating. Been here before and the brunch menu is great but at this point it wasn’t even worth it.
We got up and left (didn’t order) and still had to pay for parking even tho we didn’t order anything since they couldn’t “accommodate us”
Found a new brunch spot 5 minutes away and they immediately sat us and sat our entire party together (party of 12) and we were able to get mimosas there!!

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.

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.

I loved the Front Yard! The food, ambience and service are terrific and there is easy parking. That's the short and sweet. Here are the details. We were a party of 4 and ate outside. and were able to eat in the shade. The outdoor area was beautifully designed, much prettier than the photographs on the internet. We were given a very large table, presumably to allow for "COVID social distancing," which was considerate, and it gave us plenty of elbow room. What was a very clever touch was the provision of mini paper bags in which we could store our masks while eating, instead of having to stuff them in our pockets or purses. Great idea, I haven't seen it elsewhere. The food was delicious, our party had different types of burgers, meat, portobello, salads, pasta, and the egg appetizer. For dessert we all had the chocolate nutella cake (chocolate hazelnut - rich and wonderful) topped with ice cream, high quality French vanilla ice cream, and a drizzle of banana sauce on the cake. The waiter was very nice, even the parking attendant was very nice! I will definitely be back and recommend The Front Yard most highly!!

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
