Foundation Room House of Blues Houston Ratings and Reviews

Ambience / Decor is amazing. Food is mediocre and service is horrible. Crystal is hands down the WORST server/waitress in the world. Go to the lounge. Have a drink. Enjoy the music. The food isn't that good and the service is the worst. Beautiful atmosphere though. Creme brûlée took 45 minutes to come out and was COLD. The waitress was no where to be found. At this point I didn't want it and she dumped it in a styrofoam container and brought it back to me and laid it on the table and walked away. I won't return.

We recieved a warm welcome from Rocky at the door and were invited to enjoy a drink at the bar before being seated for our reservation. We enjoyed a special crafted Lemon drop martini that was very good. The bartender was very nice introduceing himself and others staff members. We were there on a night they were doing a art display which we enjoyed viewing. Our table was excellently set and the food service was exceptional. I had ordered lamb and didn't care for it so it was quickly replaced with a wonder fish dish. The chef came to my table to see what he could do to ensure our dinner was perfect for us. It was indeed made right and the other food was excellent. Lamb is very hard to prepare and I appriecated the jesture to make it right. We had a lovely time and enjoyed our evening in a curtained booth with a delightful wine selection.

First time being at the Foundation Room and it was awesome! Everyone was very courteous and friendly. Our waitress was very helpful in introducing us to all the meals, which were so delicious by the way. I loved the decor and how intimate the setting is. Perfect for a special dinner and music was nice too. I loved my whole experience at the Foundation Room!

The cocktails & steaks were amazing! The service was top notch - the greeter, bartender, waitress, chef & the manager were all wonderful. They stopped by our table to check on us. Our evening was truly fabulous! Highly recommend the Foundation Room!

The food was good, but the service was terrible. We were there prior to a concert and were there well ahead of time. The host was very helpful but it was at least 15 minutes before the server appeared. She asked if we were attending the concert and we said yes and placed our order. 40 minutes later it showed up. That gave us a whopping 20 minutes to wolf down our expensive meal before the show. The manager said it was slow to arrive because the chicken took 30 minutes to prepare. That would have been nice know before we ordered. We found the decor over-the-top and the music too loud in the dining area. We won't be back.

The food was absolutely amazing! The clam chowder was so fresh and probably the best we have ever had, and the filet was melt in your mouth delicious! The whole experience was great, but the decor is a little gaudy. Other than that we loved everything, the staff was so nice!
Our new favorite restaurant!
The foundation Room is absolutely amazing and has a very cool vibe! Dinner was delicious and warm bread was served right away . I had the filet that was cooked to perfection! My husband enjoyed the shrimp curry nice and spicy. Our waitress Crystal was awesome and very attentive. We are so glad we became members of The House of Blues, everyone is so nice!
Good food, but way overpriced!
The food and the service was good. My party was stuck in a back room away from any entertainment. Overall, this restaurant had a snooty feel to it. It was a way overpriced, and dimly-lighted restaurant. I guess it would be okay if you were on a date for a special occasion. For us, one dining experience was enough. I mistakenly made a reservation for this restaurant, instead of The House of Bluses' other restaurant (Crossroads). Lesson learned. Oh, and did I mention, way overpriced!
We had 1 night in Houston and weren't really sure where to go. The Foundation Room had really good food and the service was really good as well. We were surprised to find one of our favorite California wines on the menu. That pretty much made our night. We were surprised that the Foundation Room really didn't have anything to do with "The House of Blues". I guess we were expecting Blues during dinner. Live or otherwise. If you are looking for a party, it is downstairs at the House of Blues, not in the Foundation Room.
Old European Twist
As you approach the entrance from the street, you can only see a whole in the wall. But once you jump on the elevator the transformation starts to happen. When the elevator doors open to your destination you are welcomed by sophisticated and friendly staff. Surrounded by eye catching art on the walls. To your right a vibrant bar scene. To your left, the tables await. As you go in to this main room you see classical European decor from floor to ceiling. Boutique like feel allows you to sit and enjoy every inch of this intimate room. Several booths with draped curtains surround the middle tables. It's a real unique experience. Reserved for that very intimate special occasion.

Staff was friendly but service was slow .. food was excellent. . Very quiet except for when HoB next door kicked up the wall vibrating bass. We closed the curtains on the cabana style booth so that was cool. It was our Val Day dinner so we weren't in a hurry. Otherwise I could write a really bad review. I'd go back again.
No dinner meals on New Years Eve
I may try it again however it definitely will NOT be on New Years Eve. When I made the reservation it was for dinner (once we were seated) we were told there would only be (finger food) on New Years Eve and for what we received I was not impressed. At 6:30 PM we were the only couple in the dinning room event though we were asked to arrive 45 minutes early to ensure timely seating.
Waited 10 minutes for a host while waiters walked past us multiple times without addressing us despite there being only two tables occupied, then I went to the bar to inquire and the manager sat us and apologized repeatedly. Took about 20 minutes to order, then 40 minutes to get a house salad, during which time nobody came to check on us or take drink orders. The entrees were not special yet pricey (mid-$20s to high $30s). All in all we were there two hours, didn't get dessert, and missed the opening act while having to expedite them just to be out in time to see the main act. The only positive was the manager came by a couple times in that timeframe and apologized profusely while offering free champagne.
Could not have asked for better service, food or ambiance. Love the booth! Was great to be able to be escorted directly to the HOB 'private' entrance. We will definitely be back...the only disappointment was we also purchased a $50 food voucher with our ticket...but...it did not state the voucher was not good for The Foundation Room. Even though The Foundation Room is clearly part of the HOB venue. We will be able to use is later as we love the HOB...but they should state the voucher is NOT accepted at The Foundation Room. Other than that...if you like live music, small venues and are looking for a special evening...you can get it all right here!

The bread with various flavors and dipping sauces was a great start. The salad was tasty along with a yummy vinaigrette dressing. The scallop appetizer was so/so, fresh but not very flavorful. The monkfish main dish was flavorful but a little over cooked. Decor and romantic setting was interesting. I would probably give them another try.
Pre Concert Dinner
Overall my wife and I enjoyed our dinner. She loved her lamb shank but I found my short rib to be dry and overcooked. While the staff was very friendly and attentive, be careful of suggestions they make. We were asked if we wanted still or sparkling water and were surprised that we were charged over $7 for the first 2 glasses of Voss water. The rest of the bottle was taken from our table and from there on we got our glasses filled from the pitcher that was used for everyone else. My wife requested house liquor for her drink and the waitress said she had her drink made with a premium brand because it was better and just a little more. Her drinks ended up costing more than mine. A side was suggested after we ordered. The $15 for Mac and cheese was not necessary with the amount of food that was served with our entre. The overall ambieace, location, and experience would bring us back but we would be more careful ordering. Close to 1/3 of our bill was for things we didn't need or want.
