    We sat outside and it was a beautiful night. The food is outstanding and an impressive offering of wines by the glass. Only small critique is that when it was dark it was hard to see. Could use a little lighting for the late diners.

    Arrived 4 pm for 4:39 reservation- seated immediately. Not crowded on porch with Covid sensitive table separation. Waiter very personable and efficient. Food excellent and each course arrived timely. Mentioned our anniversary and he surprised us with a chocolate “Happy Anniversary Disc in a fudge base. Very thoughtful. Pricing was reasonable for plate size, food and service. Will definitely return. Have been there during peak hours - too busy and noisy.

    We normally like the Foundry.... It's a bit pricey, but the farm to table idea and freshness is worth it usually. This evening was big one for my son's graduation. The food took an extra long time to be ready. Then my mother's burger was not even close to being cooked correctly. She likes them well-done, and even made a fuss to ensure the waiter understood (and he did...). But ended up cooked opposite that... and to be honest, it was not even medium... Then took another 20 minutes and she was "done" herself. They took it off the bill, but given she was not able to eat was disappointing.

    The menu is too small not much in the way of entree choices, food is average, atmosphere is too dark on the inside, the patio dining is a much better ambiance.

    Our visit to the Foundry was just what we needed. We were all new to Manchester and after looking at several places we decided on The foundry based on the web site and the proximity to where we were staying. It proved to the right choice. I needed to increase our reservation from 4 to 5 at the last minute and it was handled without a problem. Everyone enjoyed their choices which were quite varied I ordered the steak frites rare whichwas perfect. Our server was efficient, knowledgeable and very pleasant. The atmosphere was very warm and the view of the river was great. Another bonus is thati is plenty of parking

    2h Hour dining limit is what we were told when we were seated. For a party of 5 on a special occasion would’ve been good to know at booking time. Could be because they were short staffed but I felt like our waiter was running too fast and doing drive by check ins without waiting to see if we needed anything else. Otherwise good experience.

    Pretty good. Lamb, salmon, salad, burgers for the 4 of us. Service a bit slow even though few diners at that early dinner time. We were catching up with friends, so we didn’t mind that much. The Lamb cassoulet and the salmon were over-salty, but the lamb itself and the rest was just fine. Anyone who has been there knows it’s very noisy, with all hard surfaces of wood, metal, & brick, so that’s what you need to expect. OK enough for us to hear one another (although in busier occasions that’s been a challenge).

    This was my 3rd time there and my husbands 2nd time. The 1st time we went it was not a good experience. When I went the 2nd time I enjoyed myself so we decided to celebrate my husbands birthday there. Our sever was very good, very nice and attentive (I cannot remember his name) We wanted to order the special charcuterie board, it had olives on it and I am the only one out of 5 that like them and they would not substitute them for pickles (they do have that on the menu but I thought it was a small request). I had ordered the 9oz wine and it came in 6oz and I didn't realize it until I got a 2nd glass. The menu does not have many entry choices but they are all very good.
