    Excellent service. Delicious cocktails( elderberry and gin). Small plates we shared were the Brussels sprouts and beet salad. Also shared the salmon dinner and the deconstructed French silk. All the dishes were prepared unlike I’ve ever had them ever before. So delicate but deliciously flavorful. Thank you for and amazing meal

    Absolutely beautiful space, great ambiance and great service. Our appetizers, Kung Pao Brussel Sprouts and the meatballs were delicious. The wine fantastic. For our entree we had the smash burger which was excellent and the monk fish which was not. This was a very beautiful dining experience and we will most certainly be back. Loved it !

    Lovely evening - sat outdoors - very comfortably. Amiable service. Perfect Aperol Spritzes, scotch on rocks and non-alcohol bubbly drink for grandson were accompanied by superb Tempura crusted asparagus- light and scrumptious, and tasty beat salad. Mains included beautifully prepared monkfish with miso butter, peas and morels. I’ll order that ugly fish whenever I see it on a menu! Smash burgers were enjoyed by the “boys”. I’ll copy that delicious cardamom Pannacotta with its crunchy topping. Go to FOUND before they’re “perdu”!!!

    The service is extremely professional, the atmosphere is very relaxing, and the food was top-notch! Farm fresh, inventive and delicious. We loved the Thai meatballs, tempura asparagus, tahini eggplant, and golden beet salad. The deconstructed French silk pie was delicious too large for us to finish.

    Our server Mary was excellent. We got the bread appetizer (for a charge but worth it) and she recommended the Brussel sprouts appetizer which was delicious. My friend got the chicken entree on Mary’s recommendation which he loved and i got a veggie burger and fries. Fries great, veggie burger was breaded and not my favorite but decent. And choc cream pie dessert was great, worth the calories. Great service, great food, nice evening.

    Beautiful space and great service, but the food was disappointing, especially for the 3 vegetarians at the table. The veggie burgers appeared to be frozen falafel patties and the eggplant dish was inedible. The other person at our table had the meatballs, and they were just ok. Too bad... we were very much looking forward to eating there after reading the other reviews. Maybe the kitchen was just having a bad night.

    Not sure if this review matters since Found will be closing this fall to make room for condos...but the overall experience was underwhelming. The smash burgers were a hit although the fries were soggy. My salmon measured 2" x 4" and 1/2 in thick...maybe 4 ounces? When they brought it to the table I thought it was a salad since the salmon was hidden beneath the greens. BTW...shaved Rhubarb sounds better than it tastes...it is very fibrous and impossible to chew. Nonetheless the Salmon had a nice crust but was over cooked for me. I prefer an internal temperature of about 125 - 135 degrees. (America's Test Kitchen). This was closer to 160 degrees...which is inevitable when trying to get a nice crust on a 1/2 inch thick filet. At $33, I did not consider it "good value". They only have 5 entrees, so when they were out of the monkfish and didn't bother to replace it with anything, it further limited the choices. I could go on about a server spilling my martini down the front of me or the other server who dropped the dishes on the floor splattering my shoes... But I realize that accidents happen and I wouldn't normally hold that against a restaurant. The only delightful part of the experience was Mary our food server. She was a delight. Despite my fondness for Mary, it is probably a good thing the restaurant is closing...maybe it is because they are closing that they didn't seem to care. Sorry James Beard...this was my experience.

    Found Kitchen and Social HouseResponded on July 2, 2022sorry u had a disappointing dinner. it has nothing to do w whether Found will be open for a day or a life. Each time we greet a table/guest we strive to create the best guest experience. sorry about the spill as i am sure your server was. i would suspect you are aware we just come through something called covid & have a massive staffing shortage, which is why our menu is currently so small. again we are so sorry & wonder if you carry a thermometer with you on a regular basis when you dine?

    Just a very pleasant evening. A nice, lively space that has unique features to enhance the setting but not go over the top—could eat here for a big celebration or enjoy a great casual meal at the bar: flexible for all occasions. Food was very good and each dish is exceptionally thought out. Stand outs were the asparagus, the fresh take on the steak and the espresso martini!

    The food is doused in butter and salt. Our waiter spent all of his time socializing with the table in front of us and behind us. One young nice bus boy broke a salt shaker and cleaned it up with his hands; no colleagues helping him. One other busgirl asked us if we were done with our salad and we said no we were going to take it home. She said okay and walked away - no take home box for us. We had a gift card for this place, but won't be back.
