Good Choice in Davis Square

I've been to the Foundry several times and each time it was a positive experience. The waitstaff and personable and knowledgeable. The menu constantly changes, providing a nice variety. On our last visit for dinner, they offered a prix-fixe "Craft Beer Dinner", which was a very good value. You... read more

Went for romantic dinner and the experience did not disappoint. The place was not noisy today (can get loud when completely full), which allowed for conversation, the service was attentive and courteous, and the food absolutely delicious. Had the stuffed zucchini with their special creamy sauce, and for dessert, tried their mango parfait. Both culinary delights. Beautifully presented and with... More

I want to like this place more. It's a pleasant atmosphere right down the street from me, it's not ridiculously crowded all the time, the food is well-prepared, the beer menu is excellent, prices fine---but the menu is just dull. If you're into American comfort food, you might like it. It's great not needing a reservation and a good place... More

Met a friend there for lunch mid week. Convenient parking lot across the street. Friendly wait staff served our cobb salads with chicken quickly. The salads were fresh and very tasty. Nice menu for dinner as well. I'd definitely go there again.

We went for the Sunday brunch on Father's Day and absolutely loved it. We made a reservation because of Father's Day but they do have quite a bit of seating. You can order from the regular menu or have the buffet, which is what we did. The choices (eggs, sausage, mac and cheese, lemon creme crepes, hash browns, beignets, omelet... More

My sister and I stumbled upon Foundry while we were walking around Davis Square, looking for a beer and casual meal. They had a nice beer & cocktails selection. Our server was happy to make recommendations! I settled on a fruity summer ale. I loved it! We ordered the poutine fries as our appetizer. They were amazing! The hand cut... More

We had a late dinner with our girls. The food and service were excellent, don't miss the cheese truffle fries. We were dressed casual and felt at home though others were dressed sure nicely. Kid friendly. We have also been there for an excellent sunday brunch.

I went here with my husband and a couple of friends before a show at the Somerville theater. We all selected different entrees and were pleased with each and every one of them. I thought the prices were reasonable for what we got and if I lived closer, i could see myself coming here often. Nice casual place with yummy... More
