Cocktails very procey.....Food was somewhat pricey....ie: 3 shrimp appetizer for $19....chicken $27.....pork chop $32......and it was just ok. Carmelized brussels sprouts were very good though! Service was relatively poor, ambience was ok....acoustics made for a noisy environment. First time....last time

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. The hostess could not have been more friendly or helpful. She made a special effort to seat us at the perfect table for us and we had a great time. The service was great and the food was delicious.

The decor & ambiance was beautiful. Lots of seating options inside & out. The service was excellent however it was somewhat slow probably due to staff shortage like everywhere. Our server was great but you could tell she was spread thin. The food was delicious and shareable. Though this place is far from my home, I will definitely revisit & recommend.

This was my second trip to the front yard. First time I went to dinner, and it was a little bit loud. This time I took my wife for lunch on her birthday & it was a totally better atmosphere!
Looking forward to trip 3 for breakfast.

We have been here before and truthfully the food was better the last time.

It was still very good but just not as good as the first time.

Overall though it is a wonderful place to dine because the outside space is fantastic

We absolutely love this place. We were celebrating my daughters birthday and the service by Brooke was absolutely fabulous. We feel so lucky to have found this hidden gem and now reserve it as the celebratory spot for going out to eat.

*THE SERVICE provided my our waitress and even from the hot that showed us to our seats was OUTSTANDING!!!!!

*MY STEAK WAS WORTH EVRY PENNY... I added a bit of Tabasco bc I'm a southern girl who loves to spice things up bit.

-The Strawberry Felids drink would be superior if it wasn't drowned in surgery syrup. Perhaps offer one with simply the strawberries blended into whatever alcohol is the base of the drink. When paying $13 for the small portion one doesn't want to feel like they're at a cheap Marguerites bar's happy hour (paying 2 for $6 bucks) when it comes to taste an quality.

-Offering gluten free bread pizza's (such as cauliflower crust) options for your flatbreads would be BIG PLUS in the north Hollywood studio city area!!

Wishing you all nothing but the best!!

It was my boyfriend Matt’s 30th birthday and I found The Front Yard on Yelp! It had such positive reviews I had to check it out. We had an incredible evening at their outdoor table and our server Austin was absolutely incredible at making sure we had a great time. He gave us recommendations and did not lead us astray, the Tagliatelle Bolognese was a show stopper! Will definitely be back, thank you so much to the entire staff for making us feel so welcome!

The best thing about our experience was being given the time and space to connect with someone I haven’t had nearly enough time with in the past two years. Service was okay. There were a few moments when I thought where did he go? The food is good. . . But the brussels sprouts were over seasoned and the other dishes were decent, but the price tag attached doesn’t quite match the preparation. The saving grace is that the quality of individual ingredients seems to be good enough to shine through mediocre preparation. The ambiance here is really lovely. A nice mix of old locals and tourists. Outdoor seating somehow tows the line of intimacy and opportunity to eavesdrop.

It was very comfortable, food was yummy and excellent drinks (alcoholic and non alcoholic). We had the margarita flatbread and wild mushroom flatbread. Delicious. We had the citrus drink and green drink. They came in a bottle but were very refreshing. And easy parking.

I Love the Garland my husband and I have stayed there many times, Which is why we decided to celebrate our 25th anniversary at the Garland Hotel and eat at the Front Yard. My waitress was very rude, she insinuated we were ordering a lot of food and someone might have left their wallet at our table. My husband and I told her it was our anniversary and she replied yeah I heard. We did order dessert sand waitress came back and told us they were out of what husband wanted. And if I wanted to. Take my dessert to go. When I gave room number to charge bill to my room. She took forever and then question us if we were staying. Because she couldn’t find us. The overall experience was horrible and not befitting a 25th anniversary dinner.

I was looking for a little more of a romantic spot. The table next to us had 2 children (maybe 7&8) playing video games on their phones. A crying baby inside, an an obnoxious lady with no volume control at another table on the patio.
Everything else was fine.... The food was amazing! The staff were great.
If you don't mind noise..... I highly suggest this spot.
