From the get-go, I was so impressed with The Foundry. I initially spoke to Matt, and we were lucky enough to continue to have him as our event coordinator. I reached out to *so* many venues, and this was the only one that gave me a truly detailed breakdown of everything and a really good idea of what it would look like to have our wedding there.
When we toured the space, we knew we found the right spot. It's beautiful inside and there's a lot of great features and room. We had a 185 person guest list, and our final count day-of was 127. There was PLENTY of space for everyone, and there would have been with our original count as well.
Matt was so accommodating with us. He really took the time to work with us and help us customize our wedding. His response time was always quick, and I really appreciated the continual clarity with everything.
The Foundry is run by Herban Feast, which means catering and the bar is all in-house. Initially, I was a little worried how this would affect the cost. And I'll admit, when I first saw the numbers, I was a little scared. But honestly, this was a crazy good value. The per person price for food was actually a lot lower than a lot of other places, and the food was seriously fantastic. In terms of the bar, they really worked with us and let us do a lot fo customization, which was awesome. In the long run, I was so grateful to not have to worry about food or booze and just let them work their magic! While we didn't do an individual tasting, Herban Feast has open houses for each season, and I was able to taste most of the menu items then. And yes, everything I had was delicious, and our selections were great on the day of the wedding as well.
Overall, we were so happy to get married here and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a pain-free planning process. If you're getting married in the summer, it also doesn't hurt that they have AC!Sent on 08/08/2018

By far the best wedding food we have ever tried, and our guests are still raving. This is the most professional catering company that we received quotes from, and within 2 days we had been to a tasting, had a full price quote including tip and rentals, and contract signed-super easy. They are a little higher price point than most other companies, but the food is healthy and locally sourced, cooked on site, they are stress free to work with, and include their gratuity in their contract price so no surprises at the end, and will do a complimentary site visit if they are unfamiliar with your venue (we had off site catering in Tacoma). The final product is amazing and service outstanding. For reference, we had a family style menu for just over 140 guests and an open bar. Highly recommend the family style and hot chocolate bar-worked wonderfully and guests loved it. We worked with Mary from start to finish who was wonderful, responsive, and accommodating to special requests. If we ever need catering again, they are it.Sent on 12/31/2015

Very pleasant staff. Michelle was amazing the day of the event. The staff took care of everything so that we didn't have to worry. Some of the best service I've ever had!Sent on 12/02/2014
Absolutely beautiful venue space for a wedding. So original! The architecture is gorgeous inside and out!
We have worked at Sodo Park many times and attended an open house at Herban Feast's new venue: The Foundry. The event spaces are beautifully designed, maintained and managed by event staff. The catering is always excellent - delicious, fresh food from start to finish. They are great vendors to work with, and our mouth waters when we discover we'll be photographing at one of their events!
I thoroughly enjoy helping with events Herban Feast is involved with, especially at their venues Sodo Park and The Foundry! The staff is awesome, very accomodating - BJ and his crew always show they care about service, and I appreciate that. And the Food is great, too!
