Food was fine. However, noise level was unbearable Saturday night. Solo musician was asked to turn down the volume, which he did for 5 minutes and then cranked it back up. We were seated three tables away from him and could not talk to each other or the waitress at the table. He ruined it for us.

Met some friends for dinner food was very good, live music in the bar, overall a good experience. Had a large group which was15-18 people who were mixed in with regular diners. Kind of a small room as they quieted down ok, we were able to enjoy conversation, but for 20-30 min very noisy and we all got jostled as they moved about.

Drinks are over priced for their size. They are a couple sips and your done. Vodka seltzer $9 not even a full shot. Food is pretty good but inconsistent. I ordered my meal and had to send it back because it was not edible. They asked if I wanted something else o should have just said no but, I ordered to go. You would think that they would have taken at least a drink off my tab for having to take a $30 meal home because it wasn't out in time but, no they didn't. It was a bit disappointing. Their food is pretty good and the prices of their meals are fair. But, it wasn't the best experience especially since it was a special occasion.

My favorite restaurant in Newtown. Great food and service, very accommodating for my son’s food allergies which makes or breaks the experience for us. Awesome ambiance, cool and hip but for grownups!

Head over to FKT for Newtown Restaurant Week! They have great dinner for two specials for both meat lovers and vegans. We left full and happy. Their food is always amazing and the staff is the best around, hands down. Thanks for another fantastic meal.

We had a great time! Sitting on back porch was great! Food and service were excellent! I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We plan on going back for dinner and sitting on the back porch.

You can never go wrong coming here for a meal. The menu is a blend of old school (Shrimp and Grits) and current food trends (vegan nachos) . It’s nice that there are so many options that don’t concentrate on animal products . Don’t get me wrong. I had the salad special of the day with perfectly cooked medium rare grilled salmon . We enjoyed the music and Alex the waiter was very attentive.

The food and beverages were very good. Interesting combination of flavors and ingredients. Our waitress was friendly but not attentive. We ordered an appetizer, salad and two entrees. All the food was brought out at once. We would have ordered a second round of drinks but never saw our waitress after ordering.

I usually love Foundry, but last night the service was very slow (turned in to a 2 hour meal without coffee or a desert) and the food was fair at best. Their prices have also increased and were very expensive compared to the amount and quality of the food. Disappointed.
