Haven't been to the Itasca Country Club since enjoying a company membership back in the late 1970's. Not even sure the Fox and Turtle existed at that time although I do remember a very nice lunchtime grill by the clubhouse and first tee. Anyway, a friend with whom I and several others enjoy a monthly lunch suggested the F&T. Wow - was this a great place to go! Food was delicious, quite substantial portions, service was attentive but not intrusive, and provided with a homey kind of delivery. I really enjoyed everything. I only wish it was a little more convenient to where I live, but it's definitely worth an occasional trip.

Beautiful weather Saturday evening forcing most diners outside, but appeared to be understaffed. Waited approx. 15 minutes before anyone approached our table to take at least a drink order. Otherwise an enjoyable night/dinner

The wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. My husband had put in that it was our 25th wedding anniversary when he made the reservations. He was a bit disappointed that no mention was made of it.

The food was good and the service was ok but the biggest disappointment was the coffee. All three cups were served cold. We complained about it and then requested Cappuccinos. When they brought the Cappuccinos, the coffee was cold as well.

The food was overpriced for what it was. Service was good, drinks were good - but overall a meh experience. $100 for 2 salads (one without meat) and a few drinks is pretty steep.

Servers need to be more attentive. Most groups expect to spend 60 minutes at lunch. Food is great. Servers are very nice but it takes forever to get your check.

Once finally waited on we ordered drinks and soup starter. Soup came out after drinks finished and cold. I had the French onion, wife had lobster bisque. Both were cold. Sent back. Came back out just as cold. We cancelled order and left because if the soup can’t even come out right, twice, the rest of the expensive meal we were preparing to order would more than likely not be good either. We ended up having our valentines dinner at fast food place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Fox and Turtle. We were especially impressed with our server, Jamie. She had a warm, sweet, and engaging way about her. She was focused on us as customers, and her goal was to see that we had a pleasant and satisfying experience. She hit the mark! Two at our table have had past experience as a waitress, so we feel qualified in a special way to speak highly of Jamie!

Eggplant salad and chopped salad were delicious. Calamari was good as well, unfortunately service was sloowwww and our waitress albeit friendly, smelled of cigarettes. The popular Itasca chicken was a bit dry... But the desserts, flourless chocolate cake, key lime pie, and raspberry sorbet were all 5 stars
