    Came with my 78yo Mom last night. It was early, so restaurant was only about half full. Food was great! Drinks were yummy! Service was little on the slow side but not horrible. Seemed like our poor server might have been 1 of only 2 servers for whole place with hostesses and manager helping bring out food. Overall a good experience and I would come here again.

    I've been to various locations, and this particular one needs a makeover. Walking to the ladies' room is interesting and not in a good way. The food was delicious and the service was great. If you don't care about ambiance, this is your place.

    The food is always tasty here but the cocktails could change up from time to time and the dessert menu needs more cake

    My friend and I both enjoyed our food. However, our server was EXTREMELY slow. We actually thought she may have forgotten about us. It took 1/2 hour for our food to get to our table and it wasn't hot when it arrived. When she finally brought the check, she didn't ask beforehand whether it was to be separate or just one check. (There were only two of us). We had to get back to work, so one of us paid via credit card and gave the other cash. It wasn't super crowded that day, so I don't know why the server was so slow. This was actually the first time I've experienced such poor service there.

    This location is just okay. It was super loud since it is a smaller space, the food took longer to make and the service was pretty poor. The food is still delicious here. Just wish for better service

    We had reservations for dinner post-game and it’s a good thing we did as there was a line. We were taken to our table upon arriving. The server was very attentive and the food arrived ina timely manner. The flatbread pizza was very good! They only thing on the negative side was the noise level. Although a good deal of that could be attributed to post-game chatter.

    There was about 6 tables in the entire restaurant and we asked the host to seat us a few tables down so we weren’t right beside this other couple. She said that wasn’t possible due to server rotation. The tables weren’t being held for another reservation and the restaurant was practically empty. The couple next to us spoke loudly and it wouldn’t have been a problem if we weren’t right next to them. The entire dinner was ruined by being made to sit somewhere we didn’t want to in a practically empty restaurant (it wouldn’t have been a problem if the restaurant was full, we would have understood) Looking back I wish we would have just left and went elsewhere.

    We went to The Yard in Regent Square prior to a show at the Benedum. We chose it as we had our granddaughters with us and knew there would be food for them. The food was okay; nothing spectacular but decent. We all had burgers. I did order mine medium rare and it was medium. I also ordered waffle fries and received the chips. This was remedied immediately by our waitress who was very nice. It was a good thing as the chips were not at all crispy and the fries were very good. All in all The Yard met our needs for the night. Probably wouldn't return just with my husband, but with the kids it works

    Chicken and waffle sliders- typically my absolutely favorite- however- waffle was over cooked and hard and dry. Chicken also was dried out. Was looking forward to brunch here and left disappointed. Probably wouldn’t go again or recommend since so many other options. My daughter had something sandwiched between two pancakes and she was was so/so.

    Came here based off the reviews for the food. Service was terrribleee. After we were seated, it took about 5-10 minutes at least before someone came to the table. When he came, he immediately left again. Tried ordering a tequila soda, they couldn't do that- only their "house margarita" was an option. I said Ok, it was the worst "margarita" I've ever had in my life. Tasted like straight up tequila, and immediately reminded me of a college mixed drink where the person doesn't know how to make it and they just put in too much alcohol. The bathroom situation is laughable- you have to walk through this tiny hallway full of servers waiting for food to get to it. It's super awkward, and such a poor design. When my chicken sandwich came with garlic aioli, there was no sign of the garlic aioli anywhere and it was very dry. 4 minutes after the food was served, the waiter asked if we needed anything. I said garlic aioli. He repeated it, and left. I waited, and waited. I tried to get his attention as he walked past- nothing. It was so loud I couldn't even call for his name. I ate the bland sandwich anyway so that we could get out of there. Terrible experience. We would have been better off going to the city tap or whatever across the street.

    I chose this place because it was close to Heinz Music Hall. I wish now I would have just gotten a pizza after the concert. My food came before my drink. The food itself was okay. Not hot, room temp at best. When I finally got my drinks I ordered a coke and a water, and the taste of the water was awful. This is a one and done place.

    Literally THE WORST EXPERIENCE WE HAVE EVER HAD. Waiter was higher than a kite, screwed up a huge party before us then forgot to put our food in. Waited for 45 min before having to ask. Then we were charged for something they slapped together. Needless to say won’t be going back.
