    The worst!! We went at 5:30 (with reservations) and they tried to sit 4 of us on two couches with a coffee table for dinner. We asked for a regular table and that was clearly a huge imposition (per the hostesses face and reaction when we kindly asked for a regular table). She was kind enough to accommodate us after a “meeting” with the manager (FYI…there were a ton of open tables). Once we were seated it took 20 mins to get our drink order and 40 mins to put in our food order (it was not busy). We ordered dirty martinis and they tasted like a glass of straight olive juice. One hour and 30 mins later we finally got our food…which was not entirely correct. The Mac and cheese tasted freezer burnt (to prove my point it was cold in the middle), the quesadillas tasted like old chicken (and cold in the middle) and the hamburger was completely over cooked. The waitress was nice but never came to check on us. My husband ordered a beer that never came but did show up on the bill. After dinner we thought we would grab a drink at the bar (not sure why) before heading to Fenway for our concert. The bar was not busy but it took at least 25 mins for the bartender to address us. When she asked what we wanted we started to place our order (4 very straight forward drinks) and she made a hand gesture like “yeah yeah what else”….we were so shocked and appalled. Not to mention the entire place smells of incense…like reeks and of it! No wonder this was the only restaurant with reservations available on a concert night! I would rather eat chewed gum off the street than step foot in this place again!

    Food, service, location were all great. The waitress was super pleasant, but the poor girl seemed stressed and the bar was running behind. She was very apologetic, but had no reason to be because these things happen. Great experience before the show!

    I had no idea this existed. Great that we could make reservations but it is an odd environment. Also no warning that you have to be over 21 to eat there. They let my son eat but had to check with management. Was definitely not a place for younger kids. Would recommend but mainly because they make reservations.

    This location is very convenient to Fenway Park so we were excited for a pre-game dinner. The server was training someone new and seemed quite busy handling a lot of tables and a trainee. Our drinks came promptly and were great. We made the mistake of ordering something complicated - salmon. One of us ordered it well done and one rare. Both came out very rare - the server said she misheard. The salmon was then returned to the kitchen and another piece came out which was not as rare but still not cooked through. The salmon and vegetables were just not great- salmon bland and veggies overly greasy. The manager comped that meal and everyone was very nice. I think before a game this is a better place for a drink and an appetizer or sandwich as the more complicated menu items are just too much especially when short staffed.

    Best onion rings I’ve ever had. Prices are reasonable for Boston! Live band in the room was really good too, but don’t plan to have a conversation while they are playing. Great place to hang before concert, and quick access to show!

    I surprised a friend to dinner & a concert for her 40th bday and was really looking forward to dinner. Unfortunately it was a completely different menu being served - bar food (burgers and fried appetizers). I was pretty disappointed in that but it was too late to go elsewhere before the concert so we stayed. The ambiance was very nice and we did enjoy the comfortable seclusion away from the crowd. I wouldn’t mind dining here again but it would likely need to be on a non-concert day to ensure I can actually have the proper menu.

    I made reservations to dine before a show at HOB. We were able to enter early and surpass the long line. Everyone from the security at the door, hosts, bartenders and servers were incredibly friendly and kind. The service was great, and the food was delicious. We got a table in the dining room where we were able to watch the pre-show while we had a drink and a bite to eat. I highly recommend visiting the foundation room and getting passes for any HOB show.

    We were surprised at being able to get reservations before a show without being members. Cool place, good food, music set the pre-concert vibe. Would definitely come back before a show.

    Drinks are pricey, food meh, But if you just want a place to hang out ahead of the concert (for a fee), it might be worth it to you.

    Honestly, while the room is cool and it's nice to have a place to hang, service was super slow. It appeared that there were only 2 waitstaff working. The food was ok, but I wished there were more apps to choose from. It's really awkward eating dinner on a couch. It was nice, but for the extra money it cost, we will opt for a nice dinner elsewhere preshow next time.

    I was allowed to make reservations for a night that was closed due to a private event. I'm not sure where the communication fell apart between OpenTable and House of Blues (Foundation Room), but it left me with no dinner options that night. I was very disappointed as I had been looking forward to dining there as well as not being notified that the foundation room would be closed for dinner.

    Literally the worst service we’ve ever had. Took 3 hours to from arrival until we finished and we never received our salad course even after telling the waitress. Had to go to bar to get drinks because the waitress only showed up about once an hour. Then our bill had other people’s drinks on it in addition to our own. Needless to say we didn’t pay for anything.

    The Foundation Room was a fun experience. We were there on a Fenway concert night, so there was a limited menu but what we ordered was delicious. Our waitress was not very attentive but other than that we enjoyed.
