    Outstanding! Sunday brunch was perfect. I had avocado toast topped with smoked salmon salad. What a treat. Other orders included shaved brussels sprouts salad topped with salmon and Monte Cristo finished in a waffle batter. Yum! Loved it and I'm not a brunch person. Not to mention gorgeous ambience.

    The food was great and the ambiance was relaxed. The Foundry is a beautifully decorated restaurant that is casual enough to dress up or down for your night out. Most people were casual, enjoying dinner with family or friends. They offer a nice beer, wine, cocktail selection, and the food is very approachable. A solid menu of sandwiches, pizza, and larger plate offerings…none of our meal choices disappointed!

    Great Service and Food! Went there to celebrate a birthday, the waitress greeted us nicely and quickly asked for the birthday person and made sure we got a great experience, the manager came to our table also to congratulate my husband on his birthday. The food was tasty, with a nice presentation and the perfect portion. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    Met with friends for dinner on Saturday night. Ordered our dinners, and I ordered a Caesar salad and the lobster bisque. I was unable to eat my Caesar salad because of the amount of pepper in the dressing. The lobster bisque was very good, and my dining companions raved about how good the patty melt was. We also enjoyed the banana pudding, however have never had pistachio nuts and caramel in a banana pudding. Overall it was a nice experience, but we were seated next to the bar which was very loud. Perhaps a quiet or table could be requested?

    Do not like your characterization of Noise Level. The Noise Level was not Energetic. It was TOO LOUD to carry on a conversation among a small group (4) of friends.

    I wish that I could give the Foundry 4 or 5 stars every time I eat there but unfortunately yesterday's lunch once again failed to warrant this kind of rating. I live in the community and the Foundry was a huge plus for us in deciding to move here. I've looked past two years of supply chain issues, staffing upheaval and mediocre food because I want to support the restaurant and it is hugely convenient. Yesterday I met two other residents for lunch. Our reservation was for 11:30 am (opening time). One of the women I was with ordered the half sandwich/half soup (broccoli & cheese) lunch special. When her dish arrived the soup was not warm so she sent it back, a replacement didn't arrive in a timely manner and eventually she just asked them to take it off her bill. The server was very apologetic, but it really wasn't his fault. Why would the kitchen not be prepared to send out warm soup? I was embarrassed for the club and I am tired of making excuses for this type of service.

    Four in our party. All hungry and all in the mood for something different. Everyone found something quickly that they wanted. Three of the four dishes were great. The fourth was not quality we had experienced with that dish in the past. Will definitely try again. We all had a good time. The staff is eager to please and helpful.

    Our waitress was great - I think her name was Chandra. We were in the room off the main dining room, and the noise level was high in there, as there is nothing to really absorb sound, and there was a very loud lady at the next table.

    I am not sure what has happened by the margherita pizza has changed. It was tomato paste with sundried tomatoes and unfortunately not good tasting. Our bills were not correct but it would have been a hassle to get them adjusted. I will give it another try but hope that the food improves.

    From the minute we entered the restaurant to the minute we left, the experience was delightful. As we entered the restaurant, we were greeted by the manager (Stephanie) who directed us to a private seating area. We had not reserved this area, nor did we ask for it; however, it was available, so we were kindly seated there. From this point Chandra provided friendly and very attentive service. We each ordered salads which were excellent. The chefs are so creative in the flavors they combine and the way they present each dish. We highly recommend the Foundry restaurant to all that we know. It is our favorite restaurant in the Denver area and well beyond. Sincerely, Bill
