About The Foundry Grill @ Sundance
The Foundry Grill was opened in July of 1996. The name is taken from the concept of the large foundry wall located in the main room. The word foundry also implies simplicity and a return to the fundamentals. The room, the service, and the menu are an extension of this idea. The Foundry Grill is committed to providing the freshest of vegetables and meats cooked in our apple wood rotisserie oven. In warm weather, the patio opens for outside dining. Sundance believes in the preservation of our resources; all our water glasses are created from recycled glass and are hand blown here at the Sundance Resort.

The Foundry Grill @ Sundance Ratings and Reviews
Every time we are out skiing or vacationing in Utah, we always plan at least one night to head out to Sundance and have a relaxing drink at the Owl Bar and then meander over to the Foundry for dinner. The ambiance is “one of a kind”, the staff are exceptional and the food is absolutely delicious! This place always exceeds my expectations!!
Hostess found us an especially quiet area with a fireplace when I asked for just that. Server was attentive, helpful with specials and in explaining certain items on the menu. She gave us time when we asked for that but didn't forget about us. Also knew the wine menu very well and her recommendation proved to be perfect. It was a great 90 minute lunch and I'll be back for sure.
We went on a quiet Monday night and got a table by the fire. The ambiance was wonderful. A bit pricey but they do have to cart in all their ingredients up the canyon. The food was delicious and the portion sizes were perfect. Just outside the restaurant is a deli and bakery, and they had a delicious lemon tart I had for dessert.
The food is consistently good at The Foundry Grill. The only thing I am not happy about is that I booked this reservation for my niece to take her friends to celebrate her 20th birthday. Since I am out of town, I noted on the reservation that it was her birthday. The Foundry Grill staff didn't pay attention to the note on the reservation and no mention of her birthday was made. I should have called directly to the restaurant.
Dinner, setting and service were excellent. My only suggestion would be to change the light bulbs in the fixtures over the dining bar. They appeared to be fluorescent LED type light, which were very harsh, distracting in my peripheral vision. That brightness was not suitable to the rustic interior at all.
Brunch at The Foundry Grill is the best dining experiences ever! Applewood smoked bacon, stuffed omelets, coconut French Toast with black cherry and honey pineapple butters and maple syrup make you want to come back for more. The coffee is delicious too!
If you have room for desserts, there is a generous selection. I tried a small slice of apple cranberry pie and coconut mousse.
At dinner and brunch, service was friendly and prompt! I enjoyed the new Mediterranean salad with chicken offering for a previous night's dinner. Both the salad and bread were delicious.
Next time, I plan to try the buffalo burger which looked fantastic as prepared versions left the kitchen headed for dining tables.
Met friends from L.A. for a Saturday brunch, and was glad I'd made reservations. It filled up fast. We ordered the beet salad, which was good, and the soup of the day, which was excellent. The bread was warm and tasty, though the crust was too hard to bite. The famous fish tacos were a bit of a disappointment, as they were wet and floppy. The bamboo skewer had shred them to pieces, and they were not at all presentable. The fish was cooked to perfection, though it could have been seasoned a bit more. The black beans were regrettable. A soupy mush, we couldn't determine if they should be utilized as a garnish or side dish, and ended up eating them with a spoon. Awkward.
Service was good, and the wait within reason. We could have done without the two wasps pestering us throughout the meal...indoors.
The food is expensive for the Provo area. It is very artistic however and small portions, which is what one would expect in a more expensive meal. It was $150 with tip for 3 of us. The food was very good, but not spellbinding. I thought the menu was pretty great and would like to go again to try a number of things. The tomato soup was good, the salmon was good, the shrimp ceviche was good, the hummus was good. It was quiet and the service was good. Overall a good experience and would recommend it.
Service was so incredibly fast. We ordered and had our food within 5 minutes. Eggs Benedict was amazing. Best I’ve ever had. I always thought that all pancakes tasted the same and had little faith that this pancake would change my life. But it did. Great breakfast. 10/10 would recommend.
While I love the location, our meal was slightly unsatisfying. As much as I wanted to love it all, I felt the service was slow. We made a reservation and were seated 20 min late. Once we placed our order it took forever to come out. And by the time it came to our table the food was cold. It was our fault we didn’t send it back but by the time it got us, we were all too starving to wait to have it warmed up. But with it being cold, the food was still good...it just would have been nice to have a hot meal delivered to us instead.
Unfortunately, the quality of the food was really low. This was a new low. I have typically had good experiences. Our server was great. The dessert took nearly 20 minutes to come out. Our server, thankfully, recognized that was a problem and did not charge us.
Honestly, I was most disappointed with the couple sittle next to us who were jokingly discussing incredibly inappropriate things in a public setting WITH the dining room manager. Very disappointed.
Overall- food quality- below standard
Ambience- still good (inspite of the conversation)
Our server- no complaints
I don't know if I will go back. This was our anniversary and I expected more.
Surprised my husband here for our anniversary breakfast on the recommendation of a friend. I will be recommending it to others, and I will definitely be back. The whole morning was an experience, and the service was impeccable. In nearly 30 years, I have never been offered coffee to go, that's something that will forever stick with me.
I'm perplexed as to why on some visits the menu is full of good food, then other times it's meh.
Desserts needs some help. There was a lovely fresh fruit crisp in the summer months before, now it's no where to be found on the menu. Fresh, local fruit is abundant?
I've been to the Foundry several times. I made a reservation for 5 before the theater. I requested outside but didn't get it. They assured me a 6:15 reservation was PLENTY of time (as it has been in the past). We were seated 20 minutes late. We were unable to stay for our dinners as at 7:50 they had still not arrived. Then we were still charged for our salads and bottle of wine. There was not even an apology just that "it wasn't your fault". It was an embarrassment for me bringing new people here and raving about how good it is.
