Popped in for lunch with friends though I’ve heard some folks were underwhelmed with Found. I was glad we tried it ourselves. Did small plates and shared them all amongst the four of us. Lamb meatballs were perfect. Great sauces and cooked just right. Smoked...More

Went to Found with girlfriends on a Tuesday night. Menu is small, all sharing plates - but each item we ordered was better than the next. Awesome eclectic vibe, cozy and tasty!

I must say the decor and location are both outstanding. Unfortunately, the service was extremely slow, the food was sub-par, and the prices were far above market value. Splenda Status: The establishment does not carry Splenda.

The food was great (Pastrami burger, smoked salmon salad) when it arrived after a 35 minute wait, and then the burger arrived before the salad, and we had not had any intention of sharing. While waiting we asked for a slice of bread, and were...More

Great atmosphere, good food, and a variety of seating options, including couches, bar, tables, and a view from the kitchen.

Found was an easy walk from the Margarita European Inn. Menu is eclectic, food was good. Service was very friendly and attentive. We sat outside, and it was a very Paris bistro-type feeling. Don’t choose this place for a burger and fries, it’s a foodie...More

We love Found! It is such a cute "funky" place. The service is very good. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Our server made great recommendations. The plates are all meant to be shared, so you can potentially try several things. We had the sweet...More
