Family of four - Ordered munchies and drinks. Food was ok (I've had better). Service was fine. Nothing special but close and we didn't have to drive.

The restaurant is well located at the Tram Base... The food is not impressive and rather pricy for the quality the put in your plate. The Seafood Jambalaya is too spicy and you have to search for the seafood! The wine list is decent to good. Wine Prices are reasonable. The Burger was below minimal expectations... the Sausage Portobello is... More

The Foundry was inside Jay Hotel with a view of the metro lift. Our server was Shiloh, and we enjoyed his friendly manner and competence. Our entrees were duck and pasta.

I got the special fish that was salmon and it was delicious. Hubby got the BBQ platter and he said it was dry and bland. He did think it seemed like it had... More

Service was lacklustre. Food was substandard. Meals were cold, sent back twice, never ate my meal. Complained to waitress, never saw a manager. Was billed the full amount. I had to go find the manager up front. Explained to her what the experience was like. She asked me what I wanted her to do about it. Really, I have to... More

We went to the Foundry for lunch one day and dinner the next. Service was quick, the food was uniquely Vermont, the cost was reasonable. The view was amazing.

Terrible service. We waited an hour and a half wait for food. When it finally arrived it was cold. Food quality was terrible.
