    My wife, daughter and I went on a Sat nite…had prime rib perfectly done to true medium with excellent au jus. They usually have delicious hot cross buns, but on this occasion the buns were very overdone and should not have been served; funny i have had 3 other people since then complain about the dinner rolls being burnt, a good restaurant such as this should not risk their reputation on such things. Everything else was great!

    Sat outside which we love. Nice outdoor patio-but does overlook a parking lot. Used a groupon. Was advised by the server that the groupon was not good for alcohol. No where on the groupon does it state that. If that is there rule, it is OK-but it needs to be stated on the groupon itself.

    We went to Foxfire with friends for dinner. The atmosphere was great. We sat and had a drink at the bar before dinner. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the service was excellent. Two in our party had the whitefish - which they would highly recommend. Save room for dessert - the seven layer cake is not to be missed, and it's a huge piece! We split it among the four of us. The location is also nice because it is located close to everything in downtown Geneva for activities before or after dinner.

    We chose this restaurant for my husband's birthday. We had never been there before. We were promptly seated at a great table outside. The wine and craft beer selections were terrific. Lots of good options for dinner with mainly steak and seafood. Great wedge salad too. We will go back for sure.

    After a long day on our feet it was great to sit outside and rest. We had two children (10 years old) and two adults. We ordered the Walnut encrusted whitefish (taste was so fishy couldn't finish it), Prime rib (nothing to drive an hour for), kids rib plate (sauce was too "smoky" for her), and a burger. We also ordered the calamari that was so stringy the kids actually pretended to floss and one almost choked on a large piece that couldn't be chewed well enough to break the grisle. The wine and the service was wonderful. We have been to Foxfire quite a few times and this was the most unpleasant food experience. There were many very large parties that night. Very happy they had outdoor seating where we could have some peace.

    Very good prime rib, salad, warm brownie sundae, and wine list. Wife had blue cheese encrusted ribeye; hard to see fat so wasn't the best, just won't order a ribeye without being able to see the meat. Would have been nice if they had chicken fingers as we brought our daughter; we probably won't bring her next time. The waitress could have had a friendlier attitude; the manager checked in on us multiple times and made up for her.

    Was my wife's and I anniversary and was not dissapointed at all! Food, service and atmosphere was amazing! At the end the waitresses brought out a free desert for my Beautiful Wife and I to share together. This place has the best New York Strip I ever had. Also make it Diane and it's even better. I would recommend this place to my enemy it is that dam good! It's a must do. As soon as we walked in we was seated and in a booth as I requested. Love this place and now my favorite of all!

    Took my wife out for her birthday and we had an awesome experience at Foxfire. Service was great and food was delicious, hot and timely. They wished her a happy birthday subtly, with a complimentary dessert and without a bunch of loud attention. We really had a nice night and I would highly recommend Foxfire.

    I have been going here since I moved up here in 2007. Many times it was a with a work group at first, now my wife and I use it for our special spot. Great food, great drinks, nice atmosphere. They added the outdoor dining of which we have not had the opportunity to partake, but overall, a great restaurant to visit for any occasion.

    We were dinning with 5 people in our party After being seated it took 18 minutes before I had to request that a waiter come to our table and it took several minutes after that before it happened I maid a special request for my salad of no onions or blue cheese and it was served with both, out of out table three had seafood which was very good one had a chopped salad also very good my choice was the ribeye steak which I thought they were know for good steaks and I have enjoyed good ones in the past . My steak that I ordered that evening was both tough and over cooked If I would choose to go back to Fox Fire in the future I would choose the seafood and hope for better service .

    Dined on 6/25/2014
    Doesn't compare to good steak restaurants like Ruth's Chris or Flemings, but prices are similar. We had a group of 8 seated in private room, which was nice but also very secluded and quiet, soft music would have been good. I had Ribeye, which was very thin and overcooked. Once food came, waitress and attendants left couldn't get steak sauce and couldn't order more wine. They disappeared for 10-15 minutes or so, by the time they came back we were half finished. For the price point, I would expect a better steak. Competes for business dinners with Wildwood, which is also average. If either one was a little better, they would get all the business. Now looking for somewhere new for group business dinners. Our waitress Heather(?) was great...

    We have family in the area and enjoyed Foxfire last year when visited. Thi year the chilled wine was not, the lobster was cold, and the steak was over cooked. The server was willing to adjust the problems but the problem with that is it throws the timing and the mood all out of sequence. For the prices, we'll try elsewhere next year.

    The food was mediocre. Our server was Not very attentive. She did not check on us enough. It took 10 minutes longer to get a Stella than two glasses of wine. When we were ready to leave she was no where to be found. Finally a manager came and said he would find her. One little incident like this can give you a bad taste for an establishment.

The only complaint was the noise level from the bar. There were 8 males who where trying to "top this" and they were loud.

    We were in town visiting relatives. We had a free evening so we picked Foxfire Restaurant because it had good reviews and was within walking distance from our hotel. We were seated immediately at a comfortable booth. The wood vaulted ceilings really gave the place an open airy and a little rustic atmosphere. They have a varied menu of entrees making it hard to decide. Our steaks were wonderful along with the salads and sides. Our waitress was attentive without being intrusive. If we are ever in town again, we'll be back.
