    We have been to the Foundry restaurant twice and both times our food, service, the low calming music, and ambience of the restaurant itself have been excellent. We love that the old Mill buildings in Manchester have been refurbished. I had the scallops both times and they were cooked and presented better than any other time I've had scallops and I'm 70!! My husband got a burger and fries and was very happy with his his meal also. Will definitely be back more often.

    Disappointing brunch. Food was not replenished for our 12 noon seating. Choices were limited because food was not replenished. Except for the omelette, which was made to order, the rest of the food I had was dried out. For what you pay, HUGE disappointment.

    Was disappointed in the brunch. The food did not seem fresh/warm. The person doing the omelette/carving station was by himself and could have used help. Seemed like fewer selections than I recall from a previous brunch visit. The buffet room is crowded. The flow of traffic not well organized. In and out was confusing. Would prefer a platted option than the buffet. Love Foundry for dinner but the buffet experience was less than expected. Staff was friendly but seemed overwhelmed.

    Enjoyed a lovely Sunday brunch on a cold winter day. Nice variety of choices. My husband loved the oysters & I was impressed with the eggs benedict. The egg was still perfectly poached even though it was a buffet style brunch. We wish we could have eaten more, but we were absolutely stuffed. Nice ambiance with live music. We will definitely be back.

    Loved the atmosphere. From the front desk to the buffet person and waiter, all excellent and accommodating. But brunch ran out and wasn't replenished readily. Seemed to be only one person for the buffet room, making omelets, and at the carving station. Lots of empty pans, lids left open resulting in cold or dried out food. So sorry to give this review as prior brunch was so good we brought friends this time. Disappointed. Hope they can sort it out.

    Sunday Brunch to celebrate a birthday, group of 6 with ages ranging from 72 to 6! Brunch Buffet food was fresh, delicious, varied, well-prepared. This is definitely a step up from a popular brunch buffet offered at a traditional restaurant in Hampton. Attentive staff were constantly resupplying the food selections. All were pleasant and courteous. We were seated at a large round table with curved bench seating. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. When we had finished eating, she brought over a special birthday treat. A thin disk of dark chocolate was lettered with a Happy Birthday message written in white chocolate. It was positioned vertically on a small plate, supported on either side by 2 triangles of creamy, chocolatey fudge. A lit candle was attached to the plate with melted wax. The 6 year olds enjoyed singing Happy Birthday and blowing out the candle. Fortunately they are not chocolate lovers and we were able to take it home with us to enjoy later. It was a cloudy day and I found the restaurant lighting to be a bit dim for my personal preference. Next time I would like to sit by a window to take in the view of the river that is a draw for this restaurant.

    The space is warm and inviting, looks awesome. Our server was outstanding, attentive and friendly. The food was great, we had a vegetable panini and fries and short rib ragout. As a vegetarian there weren’t many options but I don’t rate restaurants on that, just something to be aware of. Only drawback was it was a bit on the expensive side. The menu has mostly comfort food type offerings, a couple on the fancy side, but the prices were more at the fine dining level. It’s an interesting mix with that and I definitely recommend it but it’s not a place you can go every week unless you are well off. Give it a try if you haven’t yet, it’s a great meal in a beautiful space.

    It was my anniversary and we were happy to find you were one of few restaurants open Monday. I love the vibe, it's Industrial Class. Nicole was our server and she was excellent, answered ques, was attentive and friendly. Our meals were both amazing, I love how they work all the flavors together and great portions. Nicole brought out a candle with our dessert as a surprise, just above and beyond.

    We’ve done brunch here Many times and it’s always been good. Brunch buffet is till 1pm, we Had an 11.30 Am reservation so therefore I believe all good options should be available. They were not, oysters would come out 8 every now and then with 12 people wanting some Disappointing compared to past visits
