House of Blues Foundation Room Cleveland

My wife and I are members for the second year in a row. Before joining, we would buy VIP passes for certain show that gained us access into the FR. We love the place. We joined at the first opportunity. Like any private club, the more often you go the better the staff learns your preferences. Sadly, we can only make it there a couple of times per month but the staff remembers our names and our drinks. It is the premier place to see a concert/show in Cleveland. Close and intimate. Sometimes, the entertainer comes to the FR after the show. The food is 5 star. The atmosphere is eclectic. The service is top notch. There is a private entrance to concert venue from the FR which affords the ability to come and go during a show for no wait drinks. Clean, private bathrooms. Free coat check and more. In the summer, there is a patio on the top of the HOBs that overlooks 4th Street for perfect people watching and a great view of downtown Cleveland. Absolutely go if you get a chance. Join if you can. A great value and a fun time, every time.
I called and booked a reservation for The Foundation Room and spoke to a gentleman. I specifically stated I am not a member of the foundation room but asked if I can still eat there for restaurant week. The gentleman stated no problem because it's restaurant week. He confirmed the reservation for 6:30. When I arrived at 6:27 I was greeted by a woman who stated she could not find my reservation. I explained I just made the reservation earlier that day and maybe it wasn't in their system yet. I then explained I made the reservation with a gentleman and asked if she could check with someone. She advised she doesn't know who I'm talking about. I asked if I could go upstairs and speak with someone as there must be a mistake. She said no! I can't believe the incompetence displayed by this business. It was a truly disappointing experience.
Amazing staff and hospitality! The menu continues to improve. Very generous and enjoyable drinks.
Went to the Foundation Room for a work associated group dinner. Usually those kind of events have so-so food, but this food was amazing. The soup was a seafood broth soup (didn't get the exact name of the soup). It was delicious and had a bit of a kick to it. The salad was an arugula salad with pine nut brittle and a light vinaigrette dressing. The breadbasket was also delicious with Italian crusty bread along with a version of a crusty raisin bread with delicious butters including an herby garlic butter and a cranberry infused butter. For my entrée, I chose the beef tenderloin which was so juicy, tender and perfectly seasoned. Mashed potatoes were served on the side along with a mushroom glaze. The dessert was a little weaker with sorbet and gelato which was tasty but kind of left me wanting more. The room itself is also very cool and "rock and roll"-ish with fabric on the walls and a private elevator you take up to the room. Definitely a cool place to host a private party.
