Diner Reviews
  • "I took my husband here for his birthday. When we walked in the first thing we noticed was that the restaurant smelled like fish (not fresh). The bartender had to come out from the bar to seat us. He helped to get us water otherwise it was a good 20 minutes before the waiter came to check on us. The flatbread tasted like the dough was from Pillsbury. The meatloaf was dry and the skirt steak was tough (not a good cut). The only good part of the meal was the wine that we brought with us! The wine list was sad. We have been to almost every restaurant in Sacramento, but had not checked this place out. We will not be going again. I'm glad we brought some good wine or my husband's birthday dinner would have been completely ruined."

  • "The last time we ate here it was called the 4th Street Grill. They seemed a little understaffed for a Monday night. Food and service were good. Joel C. was our server and did a good job."

  • "A relatively new place, but one I'd like to see stock around. Foundation has fantastic mixed drinks (lychee martini was great!) and innovative food choices that keeps things interesting. My only wish is that it was closer to midtown."

  • "Service was attentive and friendly. We started with the Frito Misto which was missing the fennel, but the calamari was cooked perfectly. The Steamed Black Mussels were on the small side, but tender. Unfortunately the broth was extremely salty and we were not able to enjoy that. The black bean chili came steaming hot while New England Clam Chowder came more on the lukewarm side, rather than hot. We shared the Vietnamese grilled prawn salad. It was not as the menu stated it. It should have had more matchstick carrots and zucchini. There was no cilantro, no mint, and needed more lime juice. Love the grilled prawns. Definitely more of a happy hour place."
