    I really enjoyed the atmosphere - very upbeat and lively - but the food was mediocre. I had the lamb ragout and it was not very flavorful. I honestly didn’t even taste the lamb, which is usually a very rich flavor. I have had a similar lamb pasta at another restaurant in Alpharetta that was amazing so my expectations were a little high. They have a covered patio with fans that has a nice sky view!

    Tasty snacks served as entrees and house wine for $10/6 oz glass but they will sell you a thick slice of bread for $5. Fortunately, Wendy's is next door. So, you don't have to go home hungry.

    Absolutely loved Foundation! We originally tried the mushroom ravioli at Taste of Alpharetta, and decided to try out the restaurant. The cocktails were amazing, and we had the short rib pasta which was unbelievable! Great space, great food, and great service! Will most definitely come here again!

    Our small group shared “starters” like they were tapas so we got to try a bunch of things. Each of us had a different favorite by the end of the meal. One clear choice for all of us was the focaccia. Order it with every meal. I’ve seen this restaurant packed at night but lunch was a quiet, peaceful event. I will definitely go back.

    My husband and I went to Foundation after reading multiple positive reviews on OpenTable. I was a little nervous as the restaurant in in a shopping center, but once we got inside the restaurant the decor and ambiance was lovely. Our waiter did an amazing job and everything was timed perfectly. The food was delicious, and there were a number of vegetarian-friendly options. We sat at a high-top table in the bar area and enjoyed our evening!

    My husband, son and I went to Foundation Social Eatery on Father's day for an early dinner. The food was excellent and our waiter was very helpful. My husband had the ribs sugo - very good. My son and I both had the pasta with chicken bolognese sauce, also very good. I loved my Little Gem Caesar salad also. Cheese and Chauceterie board at the table next to us looked intriguing. We may need to go back and try this another time.

    Hands down one of the most amazing restaurants I have eaten at. Sexy atmosphere, fantastic drinks and food to die for. We had the escargot, octopus, ravioli, and mushroom flatbread. We had to order a second round of ravioli. I have been traveling for 18 years eating out and this restaurant slides into my top 5 easily. Excellent service as well. The manager stopped at our table twice to confirm everything was satisfactory. Thanks for an awesome experience!!

    Located in a strip shopping center shouldn't stop you from visiting. Interesting interior space, the high ceilings detract from it's cozyness. The appetizer Caesar salad was wonderful, made with the most tender of romaine leaves. Mussels were plumb and flavorful, the focaccia with tapenade, anchovies, and olive oil was spectacular. My wife's fresh pasta with chicken Bolognese was very good, my burger was average. Nice drink menu, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive staff.

    Food was very good. Salads were excellent and service was very good. Only disappointment though is that the dessert menu is completely lacking. Went for a birthday. I’d go back but I’m not in any rush. Kind of the typical, pretentious restaurant today where the owner/chef wants you to notice the kitchen more than the food itself. I like good food but I don’t need the foodie attitude. Food was good though the dessert menu is completely lacking. Went for a birthday. I’d go back but I’m not in any rush.

    We tried Foundation Social Eatery with high hopes. We were NOT disappointed. The flavor of the food was beyond what I've had in a very long time. Each bite delivered a pleasant surprise with simple, yet complex flavors. It was evident that Jason, our server, was a foodie and could not only describe the menu items, he was able to offer insights as to the nuances of how each item would taste. Foundation Social Eatery is my new favorite restaurant for so many reasons. It's unbelievable this quality exists in my neighborhood!

    Wonderful experience all around. We were met with a friendly greeting upon arrival and quickly seated for our reservation. A diverse menu with some very nice options for appetizers and entrees. Our table had mussels and escargot to start and they were very good. We then had the halibut special as entrees which was also very good. Our server was excellent. I look forward to going back frequently and trying the rest of the menu.

    We had an exceptional meal, including duck confit and mussels appetizers with lamb ragout and halibut entrees. The food was delicious and plentiful. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. Our seats overlooked the kitchen which we enjoyed but there was lots of private seating, bar seating and outdoor seating, for those so inclined. I would have enjoyed a zinfandel or muscato, my only regret.

    Great experience as Foundation Social Eatery (FSE) lived up to its hype on Atlanta Eats. I made a reservation for two 30 mins prior to arriving and was immediately seated upon arriving at 8PM on a Thursday evening. The menu is not as extensive as a restaurant chain but that is the charm as FSE changes the menu based on what is abundant at the local farms during the season. Our server helped with the menu selections as he described in great detail items that my wife was interested in. Since she is gluten-free, there were plenty of options available. I highly recommend this restaurant as it is all about being social while having a great dining experience.
