Food and service was excellent. Went with friends who we haven’t met for a while hoping to catch up but found the noise level a bit to high for normal conversation. If it wasn’t for the noise level I would rate The Foundry 5 stars.

Our table was ready at reservation time. However, the cold air blowers were intense and our food, as well as ourselves, were getting cold. We moved out to the patio. The corn soup was delicious. However, my husband’s dish was no longer available and it was the reason we went to this restaurant. He ended up sharing my pot roast which was extremely fatty. Threw out a quarter of it so our portions were even more meager. To the best first experience but we will try it again sometime. Hopefully he will get the dish he was hoping for.

Hands down my fav restaurant in Denver! Love the decor and outdoor seating option on a beautiful patio. The food is always really good, would be hard to pick a favorite entree but their croissant bread pudding is to die for! Comes w caramel sauce and ice cream. Great staff, always friendly and prompt.

Food was good. I had the prime rib dip sandwich and a salad. The only issue I had was that they brought the entree too soon after serving the salad. So by the time I was ready for my sandwich, it was cold. Liked the wine on tap and the price : ) Very friendly servers.

Burnt ends and Rocket Bird sandwich were delicious. Mac & cheese was lackluster -- kind of Kraft quality. I thought that wine by the glass was pricey, especially for such a skimpy pour. Craft beer pints were good, but here again, I thought a flight of (4) 4 oz. samples for $9 bucks was excessive. :(
Wait staff were friendly and attentive.

We had an 8:45 reservation and they close at 9:00 so it was pretty quiet. I had the white pizza with spinach and garlic. It was delicious! Nice thin crispy crust and delicious taste. Husband had the stir fry bowl with steak and enjoyed all the fresh veggies. The only drawback was that we felt rushed as the staff was scurrying around cleaning up.
