Amazing experience whenever you visit FKT. The staff is kind and attentive, the food is fabulous, and they take COVID precautions seriously. If you haven’t been here yet, you are seriously missing out. Kate, Clark, and their entire team are the best!

Normally my favorite local place but wish the brunch menu had more lunch options - sandwiches, soups, other hot items after 12 or 1 would be great. There are lots of breakfast items limiting choices later in the day. Will be returning for dinner only after being disappointed by the menu during a few different weekend visits.

First time here for dinner. Ate outside, a little cool without heaters. Also noisy only as we were sat as close as possible to the entertainment that night. Food was very good, social distancing enforced, service was good. Main courses were superb. Only hiccup was the dessert - the chcolate creme brulee was completely disappointing. Carmelized top was underdone and the custard within had not set - completely like chocolate syrup. When we brought that to the attention of our server - the response was, well it's made fresh and probably didn't have time to set. Sigh. Hope to return.

We were here a few years ago on a random drive on route 34 and loved this place. After 4 years and an ownership change, this place remains as awesome as I remember it!

First time diners, greeted very nicely and seated immediately. We had a reservation, which was simple to make. Server came by quickly, we ordered drinks which were served promptly, water furnished at table, which was nice. Menu was interesting and had a good selection of food. We tried Nachos, which were a meal in themselves. And the Brisket sandwich which was fabulous. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice meal, good service. They have outside dining, but it was chilly and raining so we sat in side. Plenty of space between tables and not to loud. So our overall experience was excellent.

Nice job. Sat outside which they don't take reservations for but was desired. Short 10 min wait on a Thursday eve. The papparadelle with lamb ragu and the chicken curry bowl were both very good. The server was spread thin but reasonably attentative.

This place knocks it out the park. I suggest the short rib dumplings, a dump truck full of them. The seasonal lemonade was awesome and overall experience was great! Recommend this to anyone who wants a great meal.

Made reservation but had to wait for outside seating 😡.
Ordered lamb ragu with spaghetti and Parmesan - received a lamb burger - pasta arrived moments later without the Parmesan; server was inexperienced and food wasn’t special - I really want to give a good review with all the Covid 19 difficulties but this was an honest disappointment - come here if you want a beer and burger and you are in town.

The food was good but I wasn’t crazy about the dessert. The drinks are really good. There seemed to be additional items in a dish that are not described. Items you wouldn’t expect like cauliflower in a ribs and grits dish. I also had a curry dish that had the same cauliflower. Neither description mentioned cauliflower. Luckily I like it. Place is pretty, ambiance is nice. Handled Covid well.

This was our first time eating at a restaurant since the pandemic began. Foundry was extremely thorough in their preparations but they did so in a way where it was only minimally noticeable. The server we had was phenomenal. He was great with recommendations and with attending to our young kids. Food was very tasty! Definitely recommend the dumplings! Thanks for the fun night Foundry! We’ll be back soon!

Ate brunch out side on a hot day. Pulled pork Benedict was very good. Short rib hash was good, perhaps under-seasoned a little but easily rectified. Staff was professional and very safe environment.

I have enjoyed the outside dining at The Foundry twice since they re-opened and thoroughly enjoyed it both times. The staff wore masks at all times and the guests also, except when eating or drinking. As usual, the food choices are excellent and well prepared. Staff were courteous and kept to the social distancing rules. All in all, a great outdoor dining experience.
