Yard House @ L.A. Live

UPDATE: I recently visited Yard House again with my friend Ashley -- she had been there the prior week and told me that they now serve gluten free beer.  They carry Redbridge, and I was told by the manager that it should be available at Yard Houses nationwide.

I stopped in at Yard House at L.A. Live on Friday before an amazing concert at the Staples Center. It was my first time taking advantage of L.A. Live. As somebody who is new to L.A., I love the idea of being able to walk to restaurants and entertainment.

Anyway, my three friends and I met for drinks and dinner at Yard House before the concert. A quick glance at the menu didn't provide me with many options. I asked about the spicy tuna appetizer, but was told that it was pre-mixed with soy sauce. However, after looking at the website, I found a gluten free menu that says the Spicy Tuna dish can be prepared!

In my honest review, I did not think the service was great at Yard House. This could be chalked up to the fact that the restaurant was packed with people before the concert; I did not see one seat in the house (even at the bar). I was also surprised by how enormous the L.A. Live branch was -- it could easily fit 250 diners.

Now that I have found the gluten free menu (I didn't see it before going!) I will have to check out the restaurant again!

Oh, and, in case you were wondering... the concert was Britney's Circus tour and yes, it was amazing.

I ate at Yard House in San Diego (on vacation) and the food was pretty good!
