Foundation Restaurant and Bar
30 minutes to get our drink and then all our food, apps, salad and entree came at once. Horrible waitress
We definitely will be back. Foundation is a fun place, not loud, just fun when we were there at 5:45. The food on the Dine Sac menu was great- Short ribs and the salmon. We look forward to returning and trying items off the regular menu.
Location is ideal, cozy environment but a bit too loud for a date night.
We had a disappointing visit during "Done Sacramento" week. Although I reserved several days in advance and the Restaurant was half empty, we were intially shown a tiny table in a hallway. The restaurant was cold and lacked ambiance. Out three course meal was disappointing. The Korean beef skewers barely had any flavor and tasted watery - no comparison or resemblance of real Korean BBQ flavor. The fried green beans were heavily fried in batter and tasted it ok. Or waiter highly recommended Beef Shortribs, but they were overcooked and dry. We certainly will not be back to this place.
The food was great, but it is a slightly smaller space.
We loved our food and service. We were seated at a table that was less than satisfactory, and they were wonderful about changing us to the table we wanted.
Great service, great food... Can't wait to go back. Fried green beans are a must.
We ordered 2 small plates, 1 entree and 1 flatbread. Everything was delicious. We got there early when they opened so just a few others were in the restaurant and bar. Service was great and we'll definitely go back!
Nice waitress. Hostess was rude just let me find my table with my friends myself
Food was very good
First time we had been to this restaurant, but it always smells amazing when we walk by. The service was friendly and very fast. We had a reservation, and were seated immediately. Our server was very nice and attentive. We both had the short rib stroganoff which was very good. The menu had many choices that all looked good. Our food came out quickly and we were on our way to the King’s game. We will definitely eat here again.
Been here before but this time the kitchen cooking was off and service was not as efficient as usual. Food was a bit salty. Will try again at a later date though.
As usual, Foundation was GREAT before the Kings game!
Service was slower for an half full restaurant. An ok place to earn for traveling through Sacramento.
Reservations for 6:00pm on Saturday, Nov. 30. Loud party at the bar overwhelmed the restaurant with NOISE and foul language, even with a young girl of about 11 years old at the table to mine! No attempt to quiet them down was made during our dinner. Also disappointed that the bartender was drinking along with the patrons. --Mike R.
We ordered a ton of food between the three of us and all shared. My two critiques are that the Brussels sprouts should be cut in half (served while makes for mushy centers) and the risotto needs help (no flavor! Needs mushrooms or peas or bacon)
Good time! Enjoyed the flatbread!
Very slow service ....50 minutes from when we sat down to cold food being brought to the table. Won’t be back.
Great food, server was friendly but slammed. Appetizers came out with entrees about an hour after being seated at 6pm. Best to book an early reservation on an event night but otherwise enjoyed this place.
Met my Aunt and Uncle for dinner. The service was excellent the waitress couldn’t have been nicer. The food was ok. My uncle had muscles and fries and he said they were really good, my aunt had the filet and she said it was tough, I had the steak salad and the steak was overdone and I asked for no tomato’s and they were on there. I would return for drinks and small bites maybe before an event at the arena. The restaurant wasn’t busy and it was loud.
Food was spectacular! Service was wonderful. Desert was delicious. All the recommendations from the sever were tasty!! Price was reasonable.
Unfortunately our order was lost!
We were there with plenty of time to eat. 40 mins after ordering, still no food. They were nice enough to only charge for the drink we had. Server apologized but then had to throw in some back talk excuse like it was our fault because we ordered an appetizer.
It was one of our favorite places to go b4 the game. Not sure now.
Very consistent food and service. Friendly atmosphere.
I was there with a group and was pleased that all expressed delight by the variety of choices. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu, helping us decide what we’d enjoy most. From flatbread to salad—all was good. And the wine list was sufficient to a range of tastes. Most impressive, a group of 30 came in just ahead of us but we didn’t have to wait for service or food!
Food was very good. Server was very professional. Longish wait for food to be served.
The food at Foundation barely passes as 'just ok' for me. We both ordered the petit filet and waited an hour for the two steaks before they were served. The beignets we ordered for dessert were super dense balls of overcooked dough covered in more powered sugar than a package of gas station mini doughnuts and did not have any type of chocolate or raspberry drizzle/sauce paired with that you find in typical presentations of beignets. The service was friendly, but lacking times (forgetting things, etc). The ambiance was disappointing. We were seated in a corner between a group of loud drunks at the corner of the bar and a loud birthday party who had no control of their kids and decided to come and go using the side door next to our table several times with no regard for the tables seated around them. For the price, Foundation fails to deliver.
They killed it with the ribs
Food was terrible and one guest got sick.
Great service! Homemade potato chips and French fries were perfect... delicious Cobb salad and wings. All in all a positive experience. We will go back!
This was such a pleasant surprise! We booked a reservation for dinner before going to a concert at the Golden One. The food was EXCELLENT, the location superb, the pricing very reasonable and the ambiance great (a bit loud, but let's be honest … we're getting a little older so the noise level at some restaurants is louder than we would like) - but overall AWESOME! Will be back … for sure!
The food is excellent and surprisingly affordable. Cocktails were great (they made a very good Old Fashion and St Germain cocktail). Our server, Jack, was excellent: prompt, attentive without hovering, helpful with menu selections, eager to elevate a normal dinner-out to a celebration, by suggesting a wonderful dessert with candle, once he discovered we were observing a special birthday.
We'll definitely keep this on our list of favorite places to eat.
The braised short ribs were fantastic and the service was excellent. OH, and the Manhattan was very good!
We celebrated our son's birthday on Wednesday night. Because it was a weeknight it wasn't very busy but regardless the service was excellent.
Sara and Tony did a great job at the bar. Worked also with Jack at the host stand, who was very accommodating, as I arrived early. Great food, ! Great night! Would definitely return when traveling to the sacramento area again!!
This was a quick lunch and the waiter helped us decide on items that would be delivered quickly. Very pleased wit service and food.
Short ribs were dry and the gravy was very salty. It took at least 30 minutes between our last course and the entree to be served.
I had the short rib dinner with mashed potatoes, carrots and gravy. It was exquisite!! I highly recommend this restaurant.
Visiting from out of town. We enjoyed this place so much that we returned again two days later bringing someone else with us. Server made excellent recommendations. We tried a wide variety of items and was pleased with each one. The flavors even on something you thing you know were surprising and excellent! This place should be overwhelmed with customers!
Always great food! It's our go to place for drinks and dinner.
As always, very attentive service from the moment we arrived for a biz luncheon. Food was prepared in a spot-on fashion. The casual club atmosphere has always been a draw for me. And the owners make a real effort to show their appreciation for the business.
We came for dinner before a movie on a date night. What a find, food was delicious, service was excellent! We will be back.
