    I absolutely LOVED it. The food (it's not the same as the HOB-I loved the salmon and heirloom salad). I felt like the service, access to the show (no line, own bar/bathrooms throughout the show) is a secret gem of Boston. It created one of the best shows I've seen at the HOB. I loved every minute.

    I wish I could leave a review however we were told upon arrival that although we had a reservation they couldn’t honor it because there was a show that night that we didn’t have tickets too. There was no indication our reservation was contingent on having a ticket. We were welcomed to go stand in line in the rain for their other restaurant if we wanted….. the whole thing was maddening, it should be VERY clear when making the reservation and in the notifications if a ticket is needed to eat a meal 🙄

    There was live music of a solo artist, it wasn't too loud. Our waiter, Evan, was a delight. It was his first week working and he did great. Very attentive. The food was delicious. Awesome place to have a meal before a concert at Fenway. Awesome place for a GNO!

    We arrived for our reservation on time & were told there was a private party and our reservation could not be honored. What??? I responded to a text confirming this reservation the day before yet was told there was no way to get in touch with me to cancel this reservation. Again, What???? There was a phone number which you used to confirm this reservation. Very disappointed in the lack of effort taken to contact me and also disappointed in the meek apology and lack of compensation for this error. Not good business practice Foundation Room House of Blues Boston!

    Although I can’t comment on the food since we didn’t actually eat there, but we were extremely upset to be turned away at the door even though we had a confirmed reservation. We were told sorry…there is a private party. Horrible way to do business and will never attempt to return

    Highly recommend for a pre-show dinner and access to the concert hall. Got into the area before the rush, had a leisurely dinner with drinks. Staff was so nice and knowledgeable about music. Food was good. Our group ordered burgers and pasta. Fries were crisp and delicious.

    We were going to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers at Fenway! We had a reservation for 6 o’clock and we were seated on time. It took about 15 minutes for a hostess to come over and tell us they were very understaffed and got us water at that time. It took another 20+ minutes before the waitress came to take our drink order at which point she told us the kitchen was backed up and we would be better off giving her our entire order right then, which we did. The drinks took so long to come out one of our party members went to the bar and got us all drinks there and came back as the ones we ordered at the table came out. Then the apps and meals all came out together. They forgot one of our apps but the waitress didn’t come back so we all decided just to pay for them and deal with it bc it would take too long to wait for her to adjust the bill. All in all, food tasted good but the experience was lackluster. Thank god for good company.

    We thought we were going to enjoy a nice meal before a concert; however, that didn’t happen the waitress came over to our table only 3 times! Meal servers brought the meals but forgot 1 and when we tried to get 3 waitresses to stop their chit chat to tell one of them, they dismissed us as if our party of 7 weren’t worthy! We told the server that finally came over to take the meal off the bill. Just to add insult to injury, we had another meal server try to run the dish over to us after everyone else had already eaten! When we rejected the meal saying we had to leave she insisted on saying “please let me explain”! Not a single person ever apologized nor make good for it offer at least the single drink on the house. It was a horrific experience don’t bother dining here!!! Other reviews were correct the staff all have attitudes and the meals are mediocre at best!

    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.

    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.

    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.
