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.

Really enjoyed the atmosphere. Our first course came out not done and manager did not respond as we thought he should when told about it. Overall though is a great place but prepare to spend some money. Food was delicious when done as it should be. Spent some time in the lounge before our concert and had an amazing Godfather Manhattan made by Sarah. We were able to go right to the venue, Terry helped us get in early seeing that I was in a boot from foot surgery and was able to put up my foot before the show.

At 8:30 when we left the lounge to go to the dining room, we ordered 2 Filet Mignon and were told they only had 1 left. Seemed odd to me that on a Saturday night at 8:30 they would be out of a popular menu item. The food was excellent as was the service, will return!

Every one was very happy with their meals. And the staff was very understanding of our schedule. It was hard to have to leave some leftovers as we left for a show.

Even thought it appeared that my wife and I were the only patrons in the restaurant we found our food to be quite tasty. The heavily draped brocaded fabric which covered almost everything was a bit much-almost oppressive.
