Yard House Restaurant Review

: Yard House's American-style restaurant and bar concept provides a welcome, relatively cost-effective dining option at Fashion Island. It's located near Bloomie’s, and you’ll find all of the venue’s signature elements present: warm woods, stainless steel accents, original artwork, a large outdoor patio, a rock soundtrack and --- most important --- an oval bar with 100 beers on tap. The American fusion menu by chef-partner Carlito Jocson features Pacific Rim flair. We particularly enjoy the grilled hearts of romaine salad, the buttery grilled rib-eye with garlic mashed potatoes and the tender and tangy sea bass. But with all those brews on tap and a host of specialty martinis on the bar menu, this place draws the thirsty masses as well as the hungry. Recommended late-night eats: the classic cheeseburger, onion rings and seared ahi with soy vinaigrette. On weekends, guests can fuel up for a day of shopping with brunch items like avocado toast with whipped feta or bread pudding french toast. Because of the noise level at this lively restaurant, kids are actually well tolerated, and there’s a nice menu of kid-friendly food. Other locations.
