Foundation Room House of Blues Cleveland Ratings and Reviews

From the moment I was greeted at the individual entrance for the foundation room, I knew it was going to be its own unique experience. Polite and attentive staff. Our server made sure to give us a breakdown of what we ordered and what our party was interested in ahead of time. Also provided us their own recommendations as well which really heightened the experience overall. We decided to sub the traditional entrees for drinks and small plates which did not disappoint. Great selection of fusion items on the menu with their own flair. Excellent drink list with great specialty cocktails and selections of food that range from their take on beef and chicken skewers to Korean fried chicken paired with their own bao bun. All in all, very impressed! Looking forward to coming again and enjoying some of their other fair available!
Not what it used to be.
We booked a reservation at the Foundation Room and we were very excited as we have eaten here in the past and it was always a religious experience. I feel like the place has made the choice to go far less "high end" with food and service and gone much more casual-fair. It's fine for what it is now- but I thought I would have a more "fine dining" experience. The server was not very good. Didn't feel like a GREAT SERVER like you would expect from a cool place like this. Loved this place in the past. Now, it's lost it's special-ness. Food was absolutely average. Service was average. I was shooting for better than that by booking a reservation here.
Priced too high for food not prepared particularly well. Indifferent service. Ambiance that is OK but you have to want the decor. It just seemed like too little for too much. Maybe it was just the night?

Not sure I have ever been in a. Worst place Slow server and no consideration for going to a cavs game. We order 4 hamburger and when the first one came out they told us they only had two. Really only two hamburgers. This was 30 mins after we ordered the manager kept saying let me up your status and I told her I am never coming back
BRILLIANT! FLAWLESS IN EVERY WAY!
This dining room is a long needed addition to the old, boring , stuffy Cleveland restaurant scene. The service and attitude is delightfully informal, yet refined. The entire staff was genuinely pleased with the opportunity to serve us (something rarely seen these days), and serve us they did! The food was some of the finest,most creative fare I have had at any of the Foundation Rooms, or frankly ANYWHERE in recent memory.
Enjoyed the atmosphere and surrounding decor. Will probably do it again my next concert trip to HOB.

The food was on point, the service was amazing! Kate made sure my sister and I had a wonderful night. Must try the grouper!
Expensive, but worth it.
This was our first dining experience in the Foundation Room. Our reservations were on a Saturday at 5:00 p.m., party of 4. Food was outstanding, service from Kate A. was spot on. Will be back.
Save your money and go to another restaurant
Overpriced, food was just average, wait staff was clueless. I din't finish any of my plates, which I rarely do, and wine list was limited.
Make this a destination - it is memorable!
I had never been to the House of Blues before. Reservations were made for the Foundation Room for pre-event dinner and birthday celebration. Upon arrival, it was clear that we were in for a special evening. The decor is breathtaking and stunning. The tapestries covering the walls bring a feeling of warmth to the space and the low lighting makes the room actually shimmer. We were escorted to our comfy, cozy booth and settled in. We were guided by and catered to by the personable and attentive Katherine. She was phenomenal and ensured that we felt at home as if we were the only people in the restaurant. The meal began with bread service which was delicious followed by dinner selections which I can only characterize as divine. Crab Cakes and Caesar Salad for my sister and Jambalaya for me. The presentation of the food is second to the blending of flavors dancing across your palet. As we savored every morsel Terri, the manager, stopped by several times to ensure our evening was enjoyable and memorable. Dinner was topped off which an unique dessert choice of Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream Sandwiches with Chocolate Covered Potato Chips and fresh-brewed coffee - simply decadent. This was more than a mere meal - this dining experience was exquisite pampering at its best. The Foundation Room - make your reservation today!!
HoB's Foundatiom Room is relatively new to Open Table and it is a welcome addition. Lots of attention to detail, such as the concierge calling to confirm the reservation and making sure I knew how to find the entrance. Service was outstanding. Rikki (sp?) the Mgr there seemed to be everywhere at once with boundless energy, from stopping by our table to walking us down to the show after dinner, she is a true asset. It was inspired cuisine in an intimate setting I'd describe as the inside of a sultan's tent. Loved the banh mi style duck confit tacos. Specialty cocktails like the raspberry lemonade were perfectly balanced. No overpowering alcohol burn yet also not too sweet. You're a fool if you dine downtown without trying the Foundation Room
Perfection on a platter. Yay and double yay! I hope you all stop in to experience this gem!
Cool atmosphere/slightly overpriced
The foundation at the HOB in Cleveland is one of the most unique restaurants in the area as far as decor and ambiance are concerned. I dined here before a concert, which was especially nice because you basically have back door access to the concert hall and a private bar and restroom. I do think the food was slightly overpriced. The food was small in portion and honestly, was not all that spectacular. I would have rather had the food on the bar menu downstairs. That said, I would go back and order less food and more drinks.
Food was good but portion
Food was good but portion sizes were too small and over priced. I can't believe people pay to be a member.
Great special occasion
We met lifelong friends for Cleveland Restaurant Week and wanted to be somewhere special. HOB Foundation Room did not disappoint. The atmosphere is awesome and relaxed. The food was great, however further limited by shortages on the special menu. We all enjoyed what we ordered and had a couple of very good bottles of wine. Cocktails in the lounge afterward made some great memories, and the view of downtown's 4th street from the (cold) balcony was a nice intermission.
My date's dinner was very
My date's dinner was very good in her estimation. My food was very dry and needed more taste. I have eaten there a number of times and consider it to be one of Cleveland's hidden gems and the ambiance but food left something to be desired this night. I will give it another chance because I love it there and everything has to be a mess twice before I will give up on it.
