We celebrated our anniversary with a delicious meal at Foxfire. Kevin, our server, was excellent. Answered all our questions. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and ingredients in the different dishes. I had the Mahi Mahi. It was prepared perfectly. The risotto was the best I've ever had. My husband had the Walleye and enjoyed it very much. The French onion soup was good and the beef chili was great.
I can't say enough good things about Kevin. He was personable, funny, attentive, and helped make it an enjoyable evening

It's been 10+ years since I'd been to Foxfire Steakhouse in Geneva. MUCH BETTER. My husband and I will go back and we won't wait 10 more years! We headed to Foxfire on a Wednesday evening so we could enjoy their 1/2 price draft beer special as well as the Porterhouse for two special. Great choices! The Penrose beer (Navette) was a perfect thirst quencher on this warm night. Their 24 oz. steak is served on a platter (pre-sliced, but still on the bone) along with the chef's veggies and fingerling potatoes for us to divide. Worked out perfectly. We divided everything to the portions that fit our own appetites and the meal was delicious. Steak was done to a perfect medium rare. If you haven't been to Foxfire Steakhouse, give it a try.

Outstanding experience from appetizer (bacon wrapped dates) to dessert (chocolate cake + coffee). We love it here - can't say enough kind words about the staff, super friendly, attentive and helpful when it comes to wine selection.

We went early on a Saturday night and it was quiet and cozy until around 6:30PM, then the noise level rose considerably, making it a little difficult to converse. My filet was outstanding, but my husband thought his rib-eye lacked flavor. Service was excellent.

We had a great dining experience. The cocktails were very good and the food was delicious. I was concerned that it would be too loud with live music but the host was very accommodating and placed us far away from the music so we could very easily converse. Very hospitable environment and they made it very clear that they wanted us to have a good dining experience which we did! We definitely want to come back soon!

Foxfire is terrible, we were the only people for dinner. My husband ordered the prime rib, medium size, they did not ask him how he wanted it, anything else was extra. I had the stuffed pepper but it was two haves of a raw red pepper filled with something that looked like bird seed.
It was a special evening as I wanted to take my husband out for an elegant quiet meal.
I came home and ate a candy bar.

I thought I had asked for a quiet table.... maybe I forgot to. But we were 6 people in the front with live music, and it was way too loud. The music was good, but the conversation became difficult. The food and service were excellent. If I were to go again, I would definitely ask for a table in the back.... where it would be quieter.

Food was excellent, but it took longer than expected, and one of the meals was not ready when all the others were brought out. The waitress apologized, but they should have made an adjustment to the price of the meal.

I'll go back because the food was very good and I assume this was not a normal occurance. However, if you're looking for a quiet evening, especially when they have some live music, this would not be the place.

This was our second visit, and we were hoping for as amazing of an experience as the first time. Unfortunately, it was slightly less then amazing. We came with family for a birthday and 3/5 steaks were cooked two levels above what was ordered ( medium well vs medium rare). Only one steak was asked to be re-done, which it was, but the waitress did try to tell us that it was “just the lighting” that made the steak look over cooked, rather than it actually being over cooked. We appreciated the redo of the steak but not the somewhat less than accommodating attitude of the waitress. Overall the service and food wasn’t as great this second time and I’m not sure why— busier night? Larger group? Either way our first visit with just two of us was a highlight and hopefully this second visit was just an exception to an otherwise great restaurant!

We have gone to Foxfire many times - I was a little disappointed in the goat cheese appetizer which came out a little cool and the crab cake (I had my steak Oscar style) that was on top was really overdone / fried so much there wasn't really anything left inside.

Was very disappointed in my dinner to be honest. I picked the restaurant because I wanted to have a good quality steak without having to go to the city. I ordered the ribeye which was nothing but fat the little meat I was able to eat wasn’t that tasteful either. I should of known better but at least I tried it.

Not only were the food and drinks excellent, the service was great as well. We had the Walleye and Bourbon Pork Chop - both excellent choices. The daiquiri and Bells Oberon draft were quite tasty. Miguel was an outstanding server - introduced us to the FoxFire menu, answered all our questions, and provided excellent service.

The atmosphere is nice. My server was excellent. My meal probably would have been fantastic if my medium rare steak wasn't overcooked. Also, the dessert was so very small for the price - in all my years of dining, I've never been as disappointed by the size versus price. In general, Foxfire is a little pricey, I've definitely had better meals for less.

I guess I'd recommend. They did have live music and that's why we went. But menu was expensive. 3 glasses wine, 1 shared salad and 2 @$25 entrees = >$100? My! I won't go back but shouldn't be a problem for them as the place was jumping.

This was our third visit to Foxfire. The first two times we went the food was really good and worth what you were paying. This past time the food wasn't even close to being on the same level. My husband's steak was overcooked and my shrimp scampi was missing ingredients and tasted like alfredo sauce. Our food wasn't terrible but it wasn't the quality they usually serve. We were disappointed and probably won't be going back for a while.

They have made some changes to their menu. Some are good and some not so good. They used to have an amazing parmesan crust for their steaks, now it seems like they just grated some cheese and broiled it. A little disappointing, since it was not what we were expecting, but still good flavor.

My dinner was very good I had the stuff pepper. My husband had a ribeye steak and I was not good he order it medium it was rare the fat on the steak was not rendered out correctly ver disappointing it was for his birthday. For a steak costing over 30 dollars it should be prepared correctly and at least served with a potato the Veggies that were served with the steak was vey said looking

Been going here for about 10 years 5 times a year. The staff and food keeps us coming back. We dine out every weekend somewhere in this state and other state's and it is safe to say that are the most consistent (great food) that we ever had. Iam not saying there's not other restaurants that are just as good but you will not be disappointed with there staff and food. We will be back in a few weeks. I hope this helps the next person who wants to eat here. Thanks to all of you for the great food and service.!
