    Delicious food in an inviting atmosphere. Our only issue is with lighting. It is slightly too dark making it hard to read the menus. You will need to use your phone flashlight to read the menu if you choose to do so. I tend to just listen to the professionals and go all verbal. We really enjoy Red Fox and go back a few times a year for special occasions.

    The Red Fox Tavern does an ok job at creating an “elevated tavern” environment, but it’s not even close to worth the price. For the price, I would expect the entire experience to be excellent, but the food was just ok. The service was great and we loved the ambiance, but I didn’t finish a single dish and wouldn’t order any of them again. This would be a cool place to come for a drink, but not worth it for dinner.

    The 4 course prix fixe experience at Red Fox was outstanding. Highlights were delicious seasonal plates accompanied by old world ambiance and nicely spread out tables to allow quiet private conversations. Service was friendly, professional, and discreet. Our only critique is of the overly large serving size for the main course. Our server joked in advance that it would be a lot of food, but it turned out to be a LOT of food. Two adults could easily have shared one entree. We saw all of the other plates in the restaurant being returned with large portions of food too, and this appears to be the norm based on server feedback. Our suggestion to management is to cut back main course portion size to prevent the significant food waste that's currently taking place. There's no need to hurt your bottom line and add to methane emissions when your food is this creative, delicious, and plentiful. Can't wait to come back for another special occasion soon.

    What a lovely experience! The food is outstanding. Lots of yummy flavors and a well designed seasonal menu. The space is cozy and inviting with excellent service from start to finish. The portions are huge and you won’t leave hungry. A little overpriced, at least during the off season and considering there aren’t many places to eat nearby, but we really enjoyed it. Will definitely return.
