Tasty food, refreshing drinks, cool ambiance, convenient location. Patrick, Sara and the rest of the staff were excellent hosts for the Xishan Hash this weekend. Much appreciated!


Great staff and food,

Really pleasant and inviting place to enjoy some sun on the roof, meet friends and fill up with amazing food.

The blue cheese burger is crazy good.

I was there last week and it rained, when I went out the staff had put a plastic cover on my bike to keep me from getting wet on the way home. Thats just a little detail that tells a lot about these guys!


Great food, great drinks and great service! Lost Garden is on a quiet, almost Dali-esque little street just off Green lake which means it's also free from the sound of car horns and bike alarms! The rooftop is lovely and the best place in the city to enjoy a few mimosas in the sunshine.


Their pulled pork sandwich is very delicious! Today my roommate and I tried the first two served, and I was very impressed! As an American, I grew up eating this kind of sandwich and Lost Garden has nailed it! Tender, slow cooked pork, with a delicious Kansas City barbecue sauce. Reminds me of home. Everyone needs to come down and try this excellent sandwich. I'll definitely be ordering it again the next time I come
