The food and atmosphere are fantastic but they were extremely understaffed. We waited an hour for our food and it was hard to find our waitress because she was so busy helping other customers. The food was delicious and everything was prepared well but definitely need to hire more people.

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.

My husband and I love coming to the Foundry. All of the staff are very kind and attentive and ensure a positive experience. The food is wonderful and if something should be off they correct it right away.

I love this place! I'd recommend it to anyone.
I just started a gluten free diet and therefore wasn't exoecting much in the way of tasty choices. Boy was I surprised at the number of gf dishes offered! I had the spicy pizza and thoroghly enjoyed it. Everyone in my party loved their meals as well. Service was well-timed and friendly, and everything was HIGH quality yet affordable.

Great service and great ambiance. Gave a less than perfect score for dry pizzas and the fact that I had called ahead and was confirmed to not get high top seating for my elderly mother. For party of 10 they said they would put 3 tables together. Got there and only seating they had was high top. Waitress said she'd check on what happened. Never heard back. Mom sat uncomfortably for 1.5 hours.

The overall experience was wonderful. I just wish they would keep their online menu updated. It was our first time dining here, so we looked over the menu before we came, only to get there and not be the same menu. If there is a picky eater in your party, call ahead to verify menu options.

Keep going, mixed so far. This time food was not bad, not great, service was not great. Not been disappointed enough to not keep going back, just not been consistent enough to be over whellmingly beter that any other options so far. Have certainly been when food was better and service was better to, so fair to say I hit a off night. But it was Friday and not much of a crowd.
