I made a reservation for dinner and couldn’t get all the times that I originally wanted so I settled on the time that you gave me. I got there me and my companion were the only two people in the entire place… We waited for a while and then instead of 730 eating, we waited till at least 9 PM to eat because we felt uncomfortable with nobody in the restaurant.

Julius and Chris went way out of their way to make us feel special. We were a group of six and they acted as if each one of us as a single party. Superb. The food and ambiance are also hard to beat.

The House of Blues Foundation Room has a NEW menu... And, it's amazing! Chicken thigh meatballs in a zesty tomato sauce with homemade garlic bread; wings w/a smokey glaze and out of this world dipping sauce (used it for my french fries from the steak and frites), toasted sharp cheddar cheese and granny smith apples was so good!

Beautifully decorated India themed restaurant with the coolest collection of folk art! Service was impeccable (we had about 3 different people checking that we were content, etc. throughout the meal) The food was scrumptious and nicely prepared/plated...we wrapped it up with the dessert of freshly baked cookies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. Afterwards, we went downstairs to hear some live blues from the band, Blues Chronicles. They were great!!! PERFECT EVENING OUT!

Overall I was disappointed with my experience with Foundation Room. On a Saturday night, we walked in to a completely empty restaurant. Two other tables were occupied later on. I ordered the Filet and it was very good. But, the meal was overpriced for what we received. The salad and sides were overpriced and small compared to other steakhouses. The chocolate cake dessert was very dry and not worth the price. Overall if I’m going to spend about $200 for a dinner for two, the restaurant should have more patrons. Save your $ or go to Marble Room.

Being new to the area it was our actual first date night my wife and got to have in a long time. The staff was fantastic and the food was superb. We shared the Shrimp appetizer and I had the 16oz Ribeye which I would highly recommend. We really enjoyed ourselves and can not wait to do it again.

This is a gem upstairs from the House of Blues main floor restaurant. It’s so interestingly decorated and feel exclusive. It’s romantic, quiet, and service and menu are upscale. We were able to walk out onto the patio outside and view the outside activity on East 4th Street. The Foundation Room in the past was limited to private parties, and it just opened to the public around August 2018, so it’s a secret waiting to be found!

From the moment I walked out in, I felt like I was transported to India. The fabrics, the Budhas and the plush seating won me over! We arrived early and sat at the bar, Lindsey was a jewel. Very pleasant and fun to talk with. Ordered the Cucumber Zen, very refreshing. Wanted a apicy martini and the manager on duty went to the kitchen and brought back some cayenne powder! Over and beyond! Excellent service!
Dinner was delicious! Ribeye melt in your mouth food and the Shrimp Thai Curry had the right kick! We capped the night off with warm homemade cookies and bourbon ice-cream, needless to say, worth the calories!! Thanks Foundation Room for helping us celebrate our 22nd Wedding anniversary in style!

Really wonderful environment. This is a nice treat before a concert. The food is amazing - worth the prices. Didn’t make it out to the balcony, so will try to come back in the summer and check that out. Felt spoiled the entire evening. I love the seating and it felt like exclusive as not many were there with us.

Food was delicious. Dessert was the best I've ever tasted. Didn't like table being right in front of kitchen door. Price for Crown on the rocks was $15: outrageous, in my opinion! Very pricey overall bill for two at about $225 -- it's just too much.
