The description of food preparation needs a lot more attention to detail, either written or as told by server(s).

The Foundry has always served great food; however, since the addition of a new chef, it has been elevated to the next level. It’s nice to find a source of fine dining outside downtown Charlotte.

We live in Trilogy and enjoy coming to the restaurant. I do wish the menu changed on a more regular basis and that the drinks cost less (mixed drinks are in the $10-$12 range). My friends from outside the community always want to meet here. I appreciate being able to make reservations on OpenTable easily but sometimes disappointed that we can't use the outside area.

Everything we ordered tasted fresh and appealing. The view is also nice, and we enjoyed the sunset during our meal. The Foundry is a hidden gem in the Denver NC area. I would have rated it higher if the staff had worn masks, and the music a bit quieter.

Food is always predictably good but not exceptional. Always clean and good atmosphere. We go a few times per year. It is one of the best restaurants on them west side of lake norman but the competition is not very stiff.

3 out of 4 diners had incorrect meals (not cooked correctly, incorrect sides, not as ordered). Not sure if it was the waitress or the kitchen not paying attention.

Third time visiting when the pizza oven was not working. Very disappointed in that fact. Also, the website shows specials for the week, which includes the date for Sunday, but we were told they don't have the weekly specials on Sunday.

Only reason why only 4 stars for food was because they didn't have our favorite cheesy bread appetizer! Otherwise service was great and food was delicious!

Had Thanksgiving at the Foundry, what a treat. All the traditional Thanksgiving dishes, served family style. So relaxing, and what a treat to come home with no leftovers and a clean kitchen. The pecan tarts were DELICIOUS. And our server, Chris was so nice to work with! We will be back!

We had an amazing time at the foundry… Of course, we always do. It’s a shame we don’t live closer because we were down here more often. Great values great food and service! If you haven’t been there you have to try the stirfry With salmon… Oh and then there is the tap wine starting at five dollars a class… Pretty hard to top that one

Came for pizza, salad, & house wine special. All was good except for the “we ran out of” Despite our 5:15 reservations, they ran out of house Cabernet and Merlot. Then the balsamic vinegarette dressing was thicker than molasses. When a side of balsamic vinegar was requested - answer was we don’t have any. Bottom line is that wait staff was good but kitchen & bar supplies need to be beefed up

A group of us went for their Restaurant Week Special. The flavors were amazing, beautiful presentations. Excellent wine pairings.
The place was full but our waitress made us feel as if we were her only guests.
Somewhat noisy, but it was a Fri. night and everyone was enjoying being out. Kinda nice to feel that again!
Love that place!

Wine week special menu. The four wines were very good. The appetizer was good. The salad needed more dressing. The entree of pork loin was very good, but the vegetable side was like a heated version of the salad. The cheesecake desert was real good.
