Over all the food was good. Took a little long for 6 on a Friday and not very busy. Waitress could have been more attentive. Took forever to get a drink refill. Bacon wrapped dates were excellent. The dinner rolls were great. Salad was pretty good. Mac and cheese side ok. Hubby had prime rib which look over cooked to me. Overall would try again.

We were excited to try a new place for my daughter’s 20th birthday. There was a live band playing which was nice but obviously loud. We ordered and waited. Server explained the kitchen was a bit backed up but they would do their best. We ordered bang bang chicken and Asian calamari as appetizers. The bang bang chicken was way over fried. A very dark brown, but when you’re starving you make it work. For dinner 2 of us had filets. Neither of us like the seasoned butter on the top of the steak! I suggest you read the menu very carefully. Blackberry pork chop and baby back ribs were also ordered. Everything tasted fine. Sadly we will not be back. The service was outstanding!

The food was mediocre at best, and overpriced. The appetizer (dates wrapped in bacon) was tiny (4 dates) and the bacon was overcooked. The fish entrée was small and cold. The prime rib, while ordered medium rare, came out grey and medium well. Two entrees, one app, and two drinks each cost $200. The service was good and the ambiance was nice, but we won't be back.

Every other time we have eaten here, it was for dinner. This was our first time having lunch there and I have to say, it was very disappointing. Whenever we have dinner, we have Kevin as our waiter and he is awesome and the food is fantastic! Saturday the service was poor and the food was not up to par.

Foxfire always delivers. Not the cheapest place, but certainly one of the best! Great food and solid value.

One critique - get better wines. 1 mediocre Malbec and 1 so-so Pinot Grigio? Seriously? Need to up your game to match your great menu!

Overall... LOVE this place!

Prime rib and sides were ok but nothing special. Crab cakes good but pricey for portion. other steak over cooked and had to be reordered . Staff was nice and comped app for trouble. Not as good as other comparably priced places so probably wont be returning.

So very loud at rear of lovely big room/ hall/carriage house.Mainly as list of enebriated diners shouting. That doesn't happen during week but food took over an hour and bread 45 mins and that was not good. Food as always was solid. Maybe avoid Saturday nights?

The salmon was good but the portion was quite small, especially for the price. The cauliflower steak was delicious. The live music was nice.

Best steak, can cut with a fork and was super tender. The scallops were cooked to perfection too. Refreshing drinks and yummy blueberry cheesecake. Nice staff, clean restrooms, and the live music on the patio was awesome. Will be coming back for sure.

Overall a good experience. The worst was having to wait over 30 minutes for our table after having a reservation. There was a large party and I don't think that the restaurant calculated for that correctly. One of our four orders had a slight error, but the food was great.

Food was incredible. Salmon with spinach and the tacos were seriously the best. Peanut butter silk fudge was also to die for.

Service/food was slow even though it wasn’t busy.

So glad I picked this restaurant to eat at with my relatives in from Florida. The first thing my sister in law said walking in oh yeah love the atmosphere. They wanted steak and there were several choices. I wanted fish which was available as well. The food was delicious. The waiter was awesome. This is my new favorite restaurant. Love it! Drinks were great too!

We LOVED Foxfire!! Went with two other couples and sat on the patio. Our table was close to the band and it was a little loud but Jackie, our server, quickly accommodated us and moved us to the back where we felt we could talk. The service was fantastic, drinks were great. The appetizers were delicious (pot roast egg rolls, Asian calamari). Everyone loved their entrees and they have some truly creative dishes! Not crazy expensive and almost everyone ordered steak, seafood (including lobster), plenty of drinks. The band was also really awesome. So many restaurants in Geneva and I was kind of back and forth but was super happy with my pick as was everyone we were dining with!!
