Shrimp scampi appetizer was excellent. But our entrees were not served hot enough. I had prime rib; and that, along with the baked potato, was not very tender or served very hot. I could understand if we were a large party, but it was just 3 of us. Pork chop and filet medallions were very good but also not warm enough.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. The owner came to our table twice to see if we were happy. They have live music on Friday nights. Historic building, nice lighting, old brick walls. Beautiful place. Will definitely go again in the near future.

Bartender made whiskey manhattans with a shot of whiskey and filled the glass with sweet vermouth, terrible. Had a filet which was great, it came with fingerling potatoes, soggy purple potatoes.

The food was great! I really enjoyed the bacon dates. The filet Oscar was a bit less than expected with a crab cake on top... I was less than impressed. That said, the food was good. I would go back but not order filet Oscar.

Everything about this place was awesome. My wife and I went there to celebrate with a few friends. Our server Jess was great none of her recommendations were off. The owner came over to see how everything was going too. Couldn’t ask for a better experience for a special day.

Went there for my girlfriend's birthday as she was in the mood for a nice steak. This place did not disappoint. Kevin was our server and made us feel welcomed, comfortable, and confident in his abilities and the location.

He offered recommendations, gave suggestions, and joked around with us for a few good laughs. He also anticipated our needs before we even had to ask.

We shared the Calamari as our starter, and then moved onto the side Wedge and Side Apple/Beet salad for myself. The calamari was fresh and lightly fried with a wonderful spicy-Asian style sauce that was just enough heat but not too heavy in flavor or fat. The salads were appropriately portioned and delicious with fresh ingredients.

My girlfriend ordered the Filet Oscar rare with asparagus, and I had their Bordone Medium Rare (NY Strip with sautéed garlic that melted like butter and a wonderful pepper/caper salad) with a side of fingerling potatoes. Both came out cooked to perfection and melted like butter against the knife.

We finished with a White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake and despite it being a cheesecake, it was actually light and fluffy like a cloud and not heavy either.

Overall it was wonderful, my girlfriend was elated for her birthday, and really appreciated the effort of the staff to make her feel special being our first time dining there. We shall return!

Amazing restaurant in Geneva. Wife and I celebrated our 5yr anniversary this past weekend and it was one of our best meals we've had. Top 2 steaks I've ever had anywhere. Filet Oscar was cooked perfectly. Highly recommend this to anyone wanting a fabulous meal.

The menu has been changed since last year and it is much better, The Mahi mahi with seafood rice is delicious and so are the lemon drop martinis. Friendly staff and owner. I made a sugggestion last year that they not cook the calamari so much...it was tough the 3 times we had tried it. It was great this time...very tender.

Not their fault but very noisy. Bar is in the eating area and some people think loud is better. Large tables also loud and noise carried all over. We were there on a Thur. night and the place was not that full so surprised it was that noisy. I would let friends know that it is good and get seating up front.

Best thing I can say about it is that you can get a decent steak and trimmings for a lot less than many places in Chicagoland . Wines were limited but they offered some specials which worked( half price on a limited selection) I was there for a business dinner so the atmosphere was a bit too loud . It would better for casual occasions but not for anything where you want to hear each other well. Service was good and friendly especially by the crew clearing the plates and filling the water glasses

We are always pleasantly surprised by Foxfire. We used to be regulars and we have not been back in many years. We decided to go to celebrate my mom's birthday, and we all enjoyed ourselves. Everyone enjoyed their meals and cocktails. Their martini's were a little small but other than that no complaints. We very much enjoyed our dessert, seasonal flavors of gelato! Just to die for! I recall thinking the same thing last time I visited. I would go back just for that!!
