Wonderful experience! Will be back
El lugar muy bonito y original, la comida todo bien pero pedí un plato con carne Wagyu y estaba demasiado cocido y muy salado
Thanks for the 5 star review!
The food was terrible. I have never tried to chew duck that was so hard. I could even eat it. My husbands steak was amazing. We barely saw our waiter. It took forever to get service. I ordered an apple orchard cocktail which is on the menu and they poured the beer and charged me anyway. 3 of the 5 specialty cocktails were not available on the menu. At the end I ordered the orange cream brûlée’ and the check was dropped off and the dessert forgotten 2 x. The place itself is beautiful. Food menu and service are terrible! A must fix! It would be a beautiful place if fixed.
Loved the food, service and atmosphere
It was closed. They are not open for Sunday brunch. Went there and was very disappointed
The food was ordinary and overpriced.
The space was elegant and has a strong historic connection, however, the restaurant was virtually empty, and there was no menu, only a Pre fixe meal. This restaurant has the feel of a place that will be closing soon, which is a shame, the last time we dined there we had a sensational meal.
Suerior venue, lounge and restaurant, with high quality food, upscale ambiance and good food and drink selection. We liked it so much, we got engaged while sipping on the bottle of Vueve and will return often
Thanks for the 5 star review and kind words regarding our venue, food and drinks. Please come back soon.
We had a fabulous time! The food, the service , the atmosphere ...it was all just perfect. It happened to be our anniversary...and it was a complete win!!!
Thanks for the 5 star review! So glad you had a great time in our Foundation Room. Please come back soon!
We made reservations for the Foundation Room, but when we checked in with the hostess at House of Blues, we were given a booth in what I think was the lounge, between the bar and kitchen, even though we said Foundation Room reservations. None of the photos on this app matched the House of Blues at this location on the map.
We were disappointed with the time it took for our drinks and food to arrive (over 20 minutes for food, 30 for drinks) even though it was a slow night with maybe 10 tables in the whole place. Food was mediocre (burned brisket on fries, jambalaya was just spicy, not flavorful, butter & cornbread were the best part of the meal). I would have preferred to eat somewhere with more authentic creole food.
I wish we could have actually eaten at the location described in this app, since it looks and sounds much better than what we experienced.
The Foundation Room is an amazing find! You ring a bell to enter then take an elevator up to the 3rd floor. We were greeted with glasses of champagne and encouraged to enjoy the band before being seated for dinner. Our server (extrordinaire) Mike, was very knowledgeable, attentive and added extra joy to the evening. The ambiance is lush & elegant but not over the top. The food was fabulous and perfectly prepared. Drinks were excellent, too. We felt pampered and like part of the family. I will definitely go back when I'm in town!
Thanks for the great review! We are so happy you enjoyed your visit with us! We will share your comments with the staff. Please come back soon.
Husband and I on vacation exploring New Orleans

Great Red Drum special.
Thanks! Please come back soon.
The Foundation Room is always great ,but it is not open on Sundays even though they allow you to book? So when we got there they were closed and we couldn’t get a reservation anywhere else
The staff is first class. Thank you Brittany!
Thank you! We will share your comments with the staff. Please come back soon.
I loved it. Rich Collins and his beautiful wife are so kind and sweet. And the music was awesome. The waiter was kind and very helpful. Along with being handsome, witty and knowledgeable.

Had a reservation for 7pm. When we arrived we were told they were full and it would probably be 15 to 20 minutes and we could have a drink at the bar while we waited. After 30 minutes started looking for hostess who was no where to be found. Finally gave up at 8 and ended up snacking in lounge. Would never attempt restaurant again since they didn’t seem to care about us at all.
My wife and I could not have been more pleased with our experience there. Mikelle was very patient with me over the phone as she guided me through the process of purchasing concert tickets, Foundation Room dining, and VIP access. She treated us like royalty the whole time we were there and made our experience a memory we won't forget. Mikelle and staff were on top of things during Tab's performance as well. A concert goer standing behind me was hovering over my shoulder filming the event with her camera phone. Mikelle and another staff member noticed this from a distance and swung into action - in a very discreet and respectful manner. My wife and I appreciate Mikelle and the staff who run the House of Blues. We have spread to the word to our friends about this place and our experience. Hang on to Mikelle... she's a winner. We will be back!
p.s. Only wish we could have had Tab Benoit sign our the concert poster :)
Hi Mr. Kaelin, thank you so much for this review! We appreciate your kind words regarding Mikelle and we have to agree, she is AWESOME! We have shared your review with her and her team. Please come back soon to another show!
I was in NOLA for work and brought my spouse along. We booked this spot because it was a 1,000 table. We loved the food. The cocktails were interesting and pretty good. The service was friendly but slow. The ambiance is also interesting in a very good way. I highly recommend this spot...but expect to be there a couple hours or more.
Hi, thanks so much for the 5 star review and kind words regarding your visit. We appreciate your comments and have shared them with the team. Please come back and see us again.
Michael the. Server was awesome! Made the experience! Great food, different atmosphere and great service! Made you feel as you were the only ones in there!
Hi Leelee, thanks for the review and kind words! Please come back soon.
It was my girlfriends birthday and I wanted to take her someplace where she felt like she was taken care of. I was amazed at the quality of service that we received. First off you got this sense of exclusivity when you walk in and you’re greeted by a host that directs you to a private elevator that’s only for the restaurant. My girlfriend was so surprised that they took the time to work with her on the menu because of her food allergies. The wait staff was incredible. Working in the restaurant industry myself, you look for people to be accommodating and giving you great customer service and they exceeded that. We will definitely be going back and bringing others.
Hi, thank you so much for the 5 star review! We appreciate your feedback and will share your notes with the team. Please come back soon and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your girlfriend!
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. We will be back soon
I was skeptical but other reviews assuaged my concerns. Ugh! Food was mediocre at best. Service was outright bad. Though the server was nice, he was incompetent. Food was served cold, drinks were forgotten, bread was forgotten , efforts to deal with a food allergy completely failed. Then, the food itself was generally tasteless and boring.
The ambiance is cool but with so many great restaurants in NOLA, skip this one.
Service was amazing! Food was amazing! Killer experience.
This was our second time at the Foundation Room, and it was just as enjoyable as the first! Our server did an outstanding job of “reading” our table and provided excellent food recommendations as well as witty banter throughout the meal! We will absolutely be back!
Thanks! We will share your comments with the team. See you next time.
Fantastic all around from specialty drinks to food to ambience.
Awesome service, ambience and food! Great place for drinks or dinner, with or without a band playing. A gem in NOLA.
We had a very special meal here! Beginning with the greeting, the special elevator, greeting upstairs (by first name, no less) with a glass of champagne. Very romantic and special place. Very good food!
This was an unexpected find and we will definitely go here again! The food was amazing and portions quite large. Two of us got Rack of Lamb, served over black-eye peas with a wonderful gravy, and perfectly cooked to medium rare. But the best dish was the Fried Green Tomatoes covered in Crab and a mustard sauce. It was AMAZING. The dining room is very small so make a reservation!!
Awesome meal and phenomenal wait staff
This was an OT find. I have been to the House of Blues in a few cities. Always think the food is s step above the typical tourist restaurant. This special room was very cool. Had the feel of a private club. Separate entertainment. Service and food were on point. Hope I make it back.
This is a great place to have dinner, listen to live music, and have a truly unique New Orleans experience.
Mike was great
This place is just over the top unique. I have visited NOLA probably 30 times in 6 years and never found this place. GREAT for a date night or even for a bunch of friends. If you want an intimate dinner - ask for a booth - it even has curtains that close! Excellent service, wonderful food and ambiance you won't find anywhere else.
Amazing! The small restaurant with chamber atmosphere. Food is high quality. I strongly recommend this restaurant for couples not for big companies.
It was absolutely amazing, from the decor to the staff and food. Perfect for a date with a special someone, if a date request a booth. The staff was great and very detailed and thorough. Will definitely be back again
