Nice intimate place for a date night, reservations definitely recommended as there is limited seating. It's in a pretty neat little party of town that doesn't feel like you're in Hampton, VA at all. The people there are really nice, service was great, food was wonderful (locally sourced, farm to table kind of stuff)! They even have a loyalty rewards program, as well as discounts for first responders and military. First time going there, will not be our last!

We started by enjoying a charcuterie board. Then we shared the day's entree special and salads. This was for lunch. Next time we hope to go for dinner and try wine from the large selection.

Nice place with good food but they weren't ready for us even though we had a reservation. Had the mulled wine, 9$ per tiny cup??? Had to ask for the music to be turned down.
Will go back but not on a holiday weekend.
It was nice that they gave the staff off, though.

Lovely afternoon, food was exceptional ! Charcuterie Board was a lovely variety with the sweetest little purple grapes - Burrata was delicious, first time trying it, will order again ! Lobster roll always a good choice, roasted asparagus was perfect ! Wine recommendations from Paul were spot on. Even ordered a full bottle to go. Service, food, presentation all excellent. Friendly small establishment, recommend reservations especially for evenings and weekends. Can't wait to visit again.

We had dinner at the Foxtail Wine Bar. And while all of the food we ordered was very tasty (Mac & Cheese w/roasted vegetables and Spicy Crab dip), the menu was quite limited even for our 8 PM reservation. All steak entrees and the charcuterie appetizer were sold out. The hummus that we ordered for an appetizer was replaced by tahini sauce. I wouldn't call the "caesar salad" deconstructed - instead it is "nonconstructed" - essentially whole romaine lettuce leaves with finely grated parmesan cheese and a small pool of dressing for dipping arrayed on a plate. The Mac & Cheese was superb and the portion was more than enough for 3+ people to share as an appetizer (or part of the "tapas sampler" that we created for dinner in lieu of sold out steak (which was why I made reservations here as my partner enjoys a good steak). Finally, the food menu online is not accurate as it includes many items that were not on the menu in the restaurant. I would call ahead to confirm any menu items that are shown on the website. It was quite loud and the restaurant is quite small. Yes, the food we did order was so tasty we would like to give the Foxtail a second chance, but will definitely call ahead to confirm the menu.

This was our first time to dine at Foxtail and I can't wait to return. Amazing wine selection and even something for the NA drinker. We really enjoyed the crab dip, seafood chowder and short ribs. The burger looks very tasty too.

We visited on a Saturday evening at 8:45 p.m. There were 3 waiters and we were sat by a sweet girl who had just started the night prior. After ordering our wine it took 30 minutes to make it to our table, all while our waitress was busy getting wine to go for the table next to us and cleaning that table. It was obvious that there was an oversight and our table was forgotten. Once we received our wine we were told she'd bring more water... which didn't happen. We also had to ask to order food after sitting there for 45 minutes. The food was good, however we found it odd that not once did any of the other waiters even bother to assist her or see if we needed assistance. Needless to say, we may give this establishment another chance in the future. Not a place to go if you're in a rush.

It is a small area, making it very loud with few people in it. When our waitress came, and we ordered a wine tasting, she said we would have to wait because they didn’t have enough glasses. We waited, didn’t get the tasting I requested. I drank it anyway. The charcuterie boards we saw going by looked amazing. We ordered a full bored. It was incredible, but you could tell they were running out of food, by the time we got ours for 4 people. When the food started to arrive, my friend got a burnt lobster roll. No one else got anything, someone finally walked by, we asked when any of the rest of our food would arrive. The took her burnt food away, 3 in our party got food. And there I sat. My husband was done eating by the time my food arrived. They gave me my

The food was delicious. The cocktails were very good and consistent. Our waitress was very sweet and took good care of us. We sat outside so I cannot speak to the comfort or noise level inside. My only issue with outside is the furniture is very cute but not exactly functional for eating. I'm 5'10 and my husband is 6'3 and we both had to sit on the edge to eat. It's great to lounge and drink and wouldn't keep me from returning but it's good to know before you go.

Super friendly staff. Sat outside (in the front) and was still great service! Don’t come if you’re in a rush because it’s more of a chill vibe. The food was great! Just know they don’t do wine flights outside, so next time I’ll be dining inside!

It was the most delicious and perfect night out I have had in years. The brussel sprouts are excellent. Better than my favorite dish of them at Jose Andres's DC restaurant Zaytinya. Loved the portbella sandwich and the Tres Leche cake. Excited the crab dip was back on the menu as it is one of my favorites. Please never get rid of the smokey jalapeno chardonnay on the cocktail menu as it is my favorite cocktail in Phoebus! We had a wonderful bottle of red wine that Paul recommended, and Phoebe keep our glasses full. (Both water and wine)!! Chef even came out to check on us despite being extremely busy.

It was very warm inside on the night we went. Did not seem to be any AC. Also, I know its a wine bar, but it would've been nice if they had more dessert selections. Overall, it is a nice place, especially for the younger crowd (I'm in my 40s).
