My wife and I were at the Foundation Room for the first time to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were very pleased with the quality of our food. The drinks were prepared tastefully and the service and ambiance of the dining room suited the occasion. I’ll definitely recommend the Foundation Room to friends and we plan to visit again soon.

The decor is very different, food is good, quiet if you're not in the bar area, service is very good. And it is expensive. Recommend for a special night out!

Very cool place. Overall service was good. I had the seafood special which was good. It was sea bass, 3-shrimp & 3-scallops. Unfortunately, they charged me the menu price for the sea bass $38 & then $12 each for the shrimp & scallops. Told price was $62 for just my meal. I was quite surprised by the cost as the overall portion wasn’t very large and it was higher priced than anything else on the menu. Usually when you get a special it is something unique or a good value. Unfortunately, this was neither.

This was our second awesome experience. Friendly, comfortable, welcoming, love the food, cocktails. We just wanted to relax, unwind, we were dressed very casual and we were greeted very warmly. Our kids were enjoying the concert, Higher Brothers, next door and Foundation management offered to walk us to the concert to check on the kids. Thank you for making us feel relaxed and comfortable.

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

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.
