Marilyn says it’s the best salmon that she ever had
Alex , the server, was so helpful in slightly modifying my brisket order which was Delicious.

The food is very good in this little cafe but the music even though he was excellent should probably not use a mike because it was extremely hard to hear anything. He was very good and charming but much too loud for this size place.

Service was great. Fish tacos my wife had were very good, however, the brisket sandwich I had was way over cooked.

Best brunch in a long time! Can’t wait to come back for dinner. Short rib hash with eggs was the best. Everything is house made and my wife had the mushroom po boy and it did not have a fried taste. Delicious.

If you're looking for a quiet place for you and your date, rethink any booking during Happy Hour. Between the 70s rock Muzak and the hustle and bustle of a packed restaurant, my date and I could barely hear each other. My mistake for booking a 5:30 dinner reservation - by 6:10, the place was packed. Considering two orders of fish tacos, one club soda and one tap water and an appetizer cost $65 including tip, I don't think this was the best buy.

My wife and I enjoy the Foundry very much. Doesn't matter if it's a busy, sunny Saturday evening on the back deck or a quiet winter Tuesday night near the bar - the service is always great and the food is excellent. Keep up the good work!

Mid afternoon between lunch and dinner, after cutting our Christmas tree! The staff was transitioning but didn’t miss a beat. Drinks and food were great, with no delays! Thank you.

Food was fine. However, noise level was unbearable Saturday night. Solo musician was asked to turn down the volume, which he did for 5 minutes and then cranked it back up. We were seated three tables away from him and could not talk to each other or the waitress at the table. He ruined it for us.

Met some friends for dinner food was very good, live music in the bar, overall a good experience. Had a large group which was15-18 people who were mixed in with regular diners. Kind of a small room as they quieted down ok, we were able to enjoy conversation, but for 20-30 min very noisy and we all got jostled as they moved about.

Drinks are over priced for their size. They are a couple sips and your done. Vodka seltzer $9 not even a full shot. Food is pretty good but inconsistent. I ordered my meal and had to send it back because it was not edible. They asked if I wanted something else o should have just said no but, I ordered to go. You would think that they would have taken at least a drink off my tab for having to take a $30 meal home because it wasn't out in time but, no they didn't. It was a bit disappointing. Their food is pretty good and the prices of their meals are fair. But, it wasn't the best experience especially since it was a special occasion.

My favorite restaurant in Newtown. Great food and service, very accommodating for my son’s food allergies which makes or breaks the experience for us. Awesome ambiance, cool and hip but for grownups!

Head over to FKT for Newtown Restaurant Week! They have great dinner for two specials for both meat lovers and vegans. We left full and happy. Their food is always amazing and the staff is the best around, hands down. Thanks for another fantastic meal.
