    So, this used to be a place where you had to "know somebody". Now (for the past couple years as I understand it), the bar and restaurant are open to the public. Lovely dining room, and if you get a table by the window you have a nice view of the valley. Go out on the patio to enjoy a drink and the sparkly lights. The food and service were very good. Barrett and Otto took very good care of us. Definitely order the Apple Bread Pudding and the Chocolate Molten cake. And the shrimp and grits, a great comfort-food dish, that isn't heavy and had just the right amount of spice/heat. Also, the grilled asparagus side dish can easily be shared with 3 people.

    We had a wonderful dinner prior to going to the Michael Jackson show in Mandalay Bay hotel. This restaurant is fabulous! The food was incredible, as well as the service and ambience. After we had dinner we had our hands stamped went to our show and came back to the lounge. They had a DJ on Saturday evening and the restaraunt turns into a lounge. The view is spectacular and service is impeccable. I will definatley be back!

    The room is very nice and last time I was here I had quite a good meal. Unfortunately this time the food was really not very good. The fish that one of my guests ordered did not seem at all fresh and she almost sent it back. The pork chops were bland and and quite chewy. The grilled asparagus were limp and overcooked. And everything was quite salty yet still lacked flavor.

    Every Woman deserves to be taken to The Foundation Room Vegas. From the greeting at the elevator to the check in desk and then at our outstanding window table, The Foundation Room staff were flawless. Our server Michelleen(SP?) was very attentive, professional and so naturally warm. The ambiance is usually reserved for royalty and that is exactly who every guest is treated. The food and cocktails were extremely delicious. After dinner, we were invited to enjoy the gorgeous view of The Vegas Strip from the large and comfortably furnished patio as well as more cocktails in the Lounge that had a DJ. My girlfriend and I give give The Foundation Room Five Stars with no doubt!!

    Maybe I am expecting too much based on the past reviews. The food was ok. The bread selection was so so. My husband has the pork belly as appetizer, the meat could be leaner, it was way too fatty compare to some others we have before. The rib eye steak was very tender and juicy, but the horseradish sauce is too salty and they said that cannot be put to the side. The scallops were good. The most disappointing was the coffee at the end.

    The Foundation Room is high above the maddening Vegas crowds/energy, on the 62nd floor of The Mandalay Bay. The view is spectacular, the food and service were great ... there is a lot of wonderful art and I love the labyrinthine nature of all the places you can be, dine, drink and chat in the Foundation Room. Wonderful and a bit eclectic ... makes for a memorable evening.

    I had the yellow fin tuna tartar and it was great. The blackened Grouper on the other hand was not very good. The first one I received I thought was burnt. I asked for another one and they replaced it with no questions, however the second one I received lack any blackened taste, And was very dry in the middle. I guess I should have sent it back also. The views and the service were great.

    While it's goals and location are great, the service and food are just ok. We had a group of six for a 7:00 reservation. The place was only moderately busy but our service was good but very slow. Food was fine but not impressive given the restaurant's reputation. Best part was the location and decor. Atop Mandalay Bay the view is great and the Indian style decor is nice and an unexpected departure from the normal House of Blues style.

    We have been coming here for a few years and you cannot beat the view. I have to say, while the food and service are still good, it's not as good as it was when we first started coming here. However, the bar, lounge, outdoor patio, and view more than makes up for it! We are in Vegas about 4-5 times a year and we always make sure to have dinner at Foundation Room. I highly recommend and will be back again.

    Dined on 6/28/2014
    What makes this place is the view, but we were surprised by how great the food & service was as well. The menu is reasonably large, and every dish looked delicious. We shared a steak along with a few other smaller plates, and all of them were great. We also came early enough that we could go to the bar afterwards, and get an unobstructed view down the strip from the patio. It turns into more of a club scene later at night, so if you want a quieter experience you should go around 7:30PM. Really worth checking this place out at least once.

    The ambience could not be better. Team service (two waiters) worked very well, although it can be a disaster, but you have it right. Food is good, but not great (no sauce for steak or lamb chop) so they were dry. Food prep does not make you want to eat more. Plates do not need more, they need improved taste and mouth feel. Drinks are excellent. Deserts well done, but taste again is a issue. Quantities are all excellent. I would go back in a heartbeat, but pls work on the the taste to the guest.

    The Foundation Room is a fantastic place to eat. It's expensive, but it is so comfortable there, it's worth the price. I thought it would be pretentious the first time I went there, but it's not at all. I could spend hours in the bar area.... it's so eclectic and the music is awesome. Great for a special occasion or if you just want a nice, unhurried meal.

    Dined on 5/9/2014
    I enjoyed celebrating my 10 year anniversary at the Foundation Room. Ten years earlier, we celebrated getting married having our first meal at the House of Blues which we really enjoyed. When I made my reservation and explained the occasion, they told me about the Foundation Room. It was more than I could have imagined. It was elegant, the views were spectacular and really exceptional from the balcony. The food was wonderful and the portions generous. It was well seasoned and we were pleasantly stuffed. The staff were divine from the time we entered until we left. All were most gracious and accommodating. But the highest marks go to our servers who were truly outstanding and made our celebration extra special.

    I've been fortunate enough to eat at some really good restaurants in Vegas, and comparatively I would not put this near the top. The view is very good, but you get the same thing by having a drink at MIX. The bone in rib-eye was tender and flavorful, but I prefer a thicker cut steak. I will say that the grilled asparagus was by far the best I've ever had in my life. Mashed potatoes were good, but I've certainly had better. Overall a good meal, just not as much as some of the reviews I read before going.

    The view is unique for Vegas, but most seats do not take advantage of it. When sitting in the middle of the dining area it feels more like a cruise ship. The food was very good across the board. While some was better than others, no real complaints. I wished I had arrived with a larger appetite to eat one of their steaks as it is one of the specialties and looked delicious. The wine list was impressive, but the markup was way too much. A street priced $10 bottle was listed for $75 and a street priced $35 bottle was listed at $200. They do offer corkage for $35 if you prefer to bring in your own, and based on their markups I advise you strongly consider it.

    We were so impressed with the Foundation Room experience. From the moment we stepped on the elevator and opened onto the floor with ambience to the nth degree. The bar was beautiful with a view of the City, and the service could not have been better. Dinner was a lovely mixture of unexpected offerings, and again the service exquisite. I know the Foundation Room was previously a private club, but I was so pleased to see it available to guests of the Mandalay Bay property. I would stay at this hotel again if I knew another Foundation Room dining experience was part of the package. Over the top from start to finish-we loved it!

    We ate off the restaurant week menu and it was great! Crab cakes for starters that were filled with big chunks of crab; filet was medium-rare and cooked perfectly, though lacked a bit of flavor; the bass had lots of flavor; the molten chocolate cake was my favorite of the deserts but the bread pudding wasn't bad if you like lots of pecans in your caramel and cake. Service was great and very friendly. All around very enjoyable and for a steal at $40 each.

    We were pretty lost trying to find the elevator. Prior to checking in, I called the hostess to ask where she was located. She was saying I should just ask someone who works there. Well we have never been there. The elevator is hidden. It's by the front desk, if anyone was wondering. As we went to the FR level, there was a creepy hostess standing in the middle. Almost like she was expecting you. The hostess was very nice, and attentive. Asked us for napkins options. Told us about the outside view deck. Once we were seated, a server assistant asked for our drink order. Another SA brought us bread. I asked where the restrooms were, and he replied that he didn't want to point. Our server only came twice during the course of our meal.

    The velvet rope access to private elevator ride to the top of Mandelay Bay will help set the mood. The Elevator door opens up to a very relaxed, comforatble lounge/bar area. I would recommend getting there a 1/2 hr before your reservations so that you have time to enjoy a couple of drinks on the porch, and enjoy the awe inspiring view of the Las Vegas Strip at Night. Dinner in the very private dining rooms are very unitque, and the food is great. By the end of the evening, you will be the "Hero" with your spouse.
