The event was my first time visiting The Foundation Room. Very nice atmosphere and the drinks were really good. There weren't many waitresses available, so it took quite some time to place orders and receive them. Better to just walk up to the bar.

Food was outstanding as always. I had planned on proposing to my girlfriend but it just didn’t come together. They didn’t realize we were having dinner so we had to wait for a table...then they forgot about us. By the time we got table we had to hurry thru dinner in order to make show. Just wasn’t meant to be I guess.
I do appreciate them letting us come in as we are not members. All in all we had a good night and again....food and ambiance was fantastic.
Thanks

I can reccomend the place because I never got in! Made reservations and received confirmation for a very important business meeting. Except when we showed up we were told that the restaurant was closed for a private event! I was mortified!

Great ambiance, ok service and the food was passable. The music in the bar was good but not great. My date had an appetizer and said it was just not that tasty. My entree was ok but nothing to return for. The prices were as expected for a higher end venue.

I made a reservation to celebrate Valentine's Day with my wife and was informed upon arrival that the room was booked. I received no phone call or email saying the room had been booked. I even received a confirmation email 2 days prior reminding me of my reservation. After pleading with both the door bouncer and manager we got into the downstairs room. They were nice enough to comp some portions of our meal however the service, food and over all experience is subpar compared to the Foundation Room. I'm not sure why these 2 rooms are managed so differently. Upstairs you're wined and dined and downstairs it's basically a free for all. Long waits between waiter visits, constant food/drink confusion, and incorrect bill frustrations were all part of our experience,and unfortunately that is not the first time I have experienced the same characteristics. In a joking manor I almost believe perhaps the business model of downstairs is to offer a bad experience in order to have a reason to give out free concert tickets to make up for it. That is not a way to run a good business. All in all I think management tried their best after the screw up;however, a suggestion I would offer would be to find out the reason why the guest was coming to the Foundation Room in the first place i.e. The food, the fine dining or the atmosphere etc. to see if you can still offer the service they came for. For example we really only wanted the truffle Mac n cheese and I was prepared to spend $150-$175 on the rest of the dinner meal in or to get my wife the thing she likes the most. This was not an option that was even considered to us that would have almost immediately rectified the situation. It shouldn't be too inconvenient to order/bring food from literally upstairs to downstairs. Same goes for putting a linin cloth on the table or trying to seclude the guests in a more intimate setting if that is why they are coming to the FR room. I hope no one has to have this kind of experience again
Thanks

The dishes themselves were significantly less interesting and it seems the menu hasn't really changed much since the last time I was here a couple years ago. The quality of the dishes was subpar - especially at that price point. Absolutely LOVE the atmosphere and service here, though.

Very surprised at how good this place was considering we went to HOB to see a rock & roll show. Beautiful room. Great service(Luke was the man) and outstanding food. From the wedge salad to the sea bass and filet, we could not have asked for anything more. We want because it was convenient never expecting such a great meal. Would go back just for the food. It was that good. Plus seeing two great bands made for a perfect Halloween night.

From the time we walked in to the time we left, the service was excellent! Tray, Rocky and Miguel made us feel like real VIPs. We almost didn’t eat our main course because we stuffed ourselves with the delicious bread basket and seductive butters and oil plate. The main dishes were delicate and had the perfect mix of spices and flavors. My only complaint is that there was a very loud and obviously drunk group right in front of us, but that was no fault of the Foundation Room. The staff did a wonderful job of handling them in a professional and tasteful manner.

This place is top notch. The service is out of this world and great food. Rocky, the concierge was the star of the show. He went above and beyond from the moment we arrived to the sad moment we had to leave. This is an amazing place to take that special someone. Very romantic and intimate setting complete with fireplace and cozy booths.

Perfect place for a quiet date night! Rocky greeted us with a smile, offered complimentary champagne and sat us in a quiet area. Trey treated us amazing offering us an off there menu appetizer and recommended some amazing drinks. Dinner and desert were perfect and delicious. After dinner we enjoyed a drink and great music at the bar. Decor and vibe was amazing. We will be back again soon!

I had fun for my first time there, I would go back. I just didn't like how the waitress wasn't happy with her tip, she was expecting more than what my boyfriend gave her from how she confronted us about it. But overall I enjoyed myself! Going back soon.

So I came here after seeing 4 star reviews on Yelp. I thought it would be a great place to take some friends, but it wasn't. We waited 30 minutes for a table in a restaurant that was empty. Then we waited 15 minutes for water. Following that, we waited 10 more minutes for drinks, an hour for food - which was mediocre, and then waited 20 more minutes for desert. Just to add to the experience, we had to cut the dessert with a straw and eat it with our hands. Again, a desert. Eaten with hands. To top it all off, we got the bill BEFORE we even had a chance to sample the dessert option. All in all, this was a terrible experience. I would have had a better time going to a Burger King than spending here.
