Our service was not what he should have been. Server never checked on us, we had to track him down for beverage refills and to check on food after a 45 minute wait.

I have no issue with the food or service, generally, but our last experience included a waiter dumping a tray of drinks on my lap and shoes. Accidents happen, for certain. I wasn't angry nor did I yell or chastise the server - rather, I told him I understand these things happen and not to let it worry him. Nonetheless, MINIMALLY we should have had our drinks covered (no alcohol, just soft drinks) and if it was my restaurant I would have made sure the person affected would have a free meal, too. That this did not happen, even with the manager/owner present and aware, we will not return to this restaurant. Very disappointed and my only recourse is to take my business elsewhere.

Got a break in the rainy weather and got to sit on the patio. Patrice and Johnna were our servers, and they were on top of everything, friendly and welcoming. Our food was great, no long wait and everything was delicious.

The only drawback to the patio is the cigar smoking, every time we're seated out there it seems the person next to us is smoking like a chimney. Wish they'd keep that to one corner or section of the patio, not the whole patio.

Wouldn’t allow customers to eat at the tables outside even though there were tables open, only because they wanted to fill seating inside. Even though I had a reservation and the restaurant was nearly empty

We had the opportunity to be seated on the large patio on a day that it actually wasn't raining. The service was a bit slow, a newer server, but otherwise a beautiful experience. The salads and the chicken sandwich were great and the portions are large. Highly recommend!!

Everything was great except for the 3 smokers seated next to us outside..thought that was illegal to seat smokers next to people that were eating or drinking? Checking with the Village of Itasca about this

I rarely like to go negative on a Restaurant, but after today‘s experience I can’t keep it to my self.

Let me begin by saying that the gentleman who served us was very nice and cordial. Unfortunately I walked out of there feeling empty and taken advantage of.
First, The food was excessively over priced for the quality they are serving. I ordered the pork belly tacos ($22 for three tacos) crazy right? Specially since pork belly is one of the cheapest cuts, but anyways, there was nothing in that plate worth that money. It was a big plate of shredded cabbage with three sad tacos served on some sort of a pita. I ordered an hanger steak for my wife (Mother’s day and all) again, got a 4oz $39 dollar piece of meat drenched in some sauce, overcooked asparagus and dry mashed potatoes. My kids ordered Man & Cheese, hard to screw that one up right?, well, they could not eat it, rare to see a kid turning mac n cheese.
At the end I was left with an expensive bill not worth even a fraction of what I paid. For that money we could have go to Mortons or Capital grill, which makes no sense.
I hate trashing a place like this, but people should know what to expect, specially since I look at 4.5 stars in the ratings and I can’t think how they got them.

I like this place but we picked a 60.00 bottle of wine that was terrible and the glasses of chardonnay were 15 each. We had salads (18 each) and nachos (17). Total bill 157 for an ok meal. Gotten to pricey for an overall ok meal. Won't be going back.

Love Fox and Turtle. It was a very busy night, but the staff was handling the chaos pretty well. Food arrived quicker than expected, though our salads never showed up. They took it off the bill. Sitting by the bar we could see the bartender was trying as hard as possible to keep up with the demand. Johna was great, we had great service and never felt like we were forgotten. The gentleman who brought out the food was doing a great job considering how crazy busy it was, he was dodging people and keeping a calm demeanor. I would say they should consider moving the high top tables over closer to the windows by 6-8 inches, sitting closest to the bar I kept worrying I'd end up wearing someones food or get knocked into by a server.

Hosted a business luncheon for 10 people at this venue for the first time. Service was particularly attentive and everyone's entrée was served within two minutes of the first avoiding the wait for a stray dish or two not coming out with the others. Portion size was more than adequate for lunch. Food was artfully plated and served. A delightful experience.

Hectic hostess area with people waiting, overbooked and had to wait even with a reservation...which is my pet peeve.

Was warned by the manager that the service would be slow and it was. Fortunately every bit of food that was served was delicious so that made up for it.

Was there way too long, had a 6:30 reservation and wasn’t seated until 6:45. An hour later we still had no food on the table. Didn’t leave there until 8:45 and we chose an early meal so we can keep our 1 year olds sleep schedule...which we totally missed.

Would still come back for the food in the spring or summer, but never again on a Saturday night.
