This place was such a pleasant surprise. My girlfriend and I found it by searching online for close restaurants near us. The menu looked good online but was much better in person. They had just recently changed to their fall menu and it was DELICIOUS! We started with the pear and goat cheese salad that had the most tasty crouton I've ever had. The textures were on point and flavor did not disappoint. From the chorizo flat bread to the flank iron steak, it was all amazing. And their secret menu drink with the mezcal, thai chili, and vanilla was a top 10 drink for my girlfriend. Highly recommend this place.

I’ve been here numerous times before and loved it but this was the first time we had absolutely awful service. The waiter was rude and gave us a hard time about ordering food, etc. disappeared for extended periods. Forgot orders and then got upset with us when we asked where things were. Hopefully that’s not a normal thing but was disappointed.

The ambience was really nice. The food was average. It seemed like they put spices on everything to make it spicy. The strawberry fields drink was delicious however the price for the serving size was outrageous.

Everything was excellent except we had reservations and we wanted to sit outside. There were several openings including the very long table. There were 5 people sitting next to the fireplace and we asked to sit at the opposite end. We were told we couldn’t. So we sat at a large table on the inside patio. Later 2 guests with babies were seated where we wanted. If outside seating is available, it should be given to reserved guests!

Our party of eight had a great time at the Front Yard. A good part of our experience was being with friends who had not seen each other. However, our experience with the attentive wait staff was excellent and everyone enjoyed the food and presentation. Our only nit was that we sat at a round table and often were unable to hear the conversation at our own table. We did not let that interfere with the experience.

I love the food here. it’s such great ambiance. But heads up you’ll order an app of some kind and then you’ll wait at least 40 minutes for your main course. And the waiter doesn’t check on your for quite some time. It’s a little brutal.

Amazing dining experience. Beautiful deco on the outdoor and indoor.

Came to celebrate a friend's engagement.

Wife and I ordered cheese biscuits that took 12 minutes to bake, it was so good! Super cheesy and flaky.

For entree, we went with the dry age new York steak. You can taste the dry aged portion, when you bite into the steak. Very juicy, and tender.

For dessert, we went with chocolate cremebrule with custard, it was yummy. You get chocolate that is semi bitter paired with sweet macaroons cheese.

Very busy restaurant can get a bit noisy. Food average nothing to write home about. Value very pricey for who they are. I had the fried chicken way over price for two pieces. To much breading and very little meat. Would I go back there again? Not sure!

We had an excellent meal at the front yard. Our server Arnold was attentive & friendly. The food was exceptional — the mushroom flatbread and grilled octopus were a hit, but the 12 Minute Cheese Biscuits stole the show! We will definitely be back!

This was my third time here, and it did not live up to my previous experience. My Bloody Mary was pretty tasteless and my food mediocre. Our server did not come by during the meal and we had to ask someone to get her to bring our bill. It is a beautiful spot. That part you can't beat. Probably not going to return.

Overall a really great date spot, just be aware they include 15% gratuity no matter how large your party is, which apparently is split amongst the staff. According to our server, any additional gratuity we add goes directly to your server.

The outside is very cute, the hotel is beautiful. The food however is mediocre at best. My pasta with meat sauce was all the same mushy consistency, the octopus appetizer was extremely fishy.
Consider going here to sit outside, have a cocktail and maybe share an appetizer.

I recommend this place because it has such a cool vibe and beautiful patio, but with reservations, because the food was hit-and-miss on my visit. Out of three things ordered -- two appetizers and a pasta dish -- only one was great, one was fair and the pasta was definitely a disappointment. I'd go here for drinks and appetizers for sure -- and will go back at least one more time to try another dish or two from the main courses. One thing is for sure -- the restaurant's patio is one of the nicest in the Southland.

I love this place it’s one of my favorites. There was a little misunderstanding with the seating. It was immediately resolved and the manager apologized and chatted for a while she was super sweet. The star of the night was Karen the hostess. I have no doubt that she will be a manager some day. She watched over the entire restaurant anytime anything was lacking she filled in all gaps. Please let her know that if she ever wants to go into another industry, I will hire her in a heartbeat. Also, Tyler wasn’t even my server and he was phenomenal. My server was Arnold and he was great. Incredible personality, knowledgeable, but he was very busy. I was so impressed that Tyler stepped in anytime we needed something. The teamwork was amazing and the food is always perfect. I will continue to be a regular!!
