This is an atmospheric space with nice decorative touches. The staff were friendly and very attentive, really first-rate. But the food is generally too heavy, too loaded with sauce and butter and salt. We were there for a "celebration dinner" that was prix fixe, and the food prices were high, although not out of reach. The wine pairing, however, was $75 and consisted of a glass of sparkling wine, two small half-glasses of dinner wine, and a small dessert wine; it seemed over-priced and under-generous. If we were to return, I'd order simple food and buy by the bottle.
But let me emphasize, the people and place were nice.
The Red Fox Inn is a Middleburg, VA classic in that it's warm, serves great food, with a country feel. We went for post-Valentine's weekend, which still served the Prix Fixe menu. We ordered 4-courses each and enjoyed every item! We were fortunate to sit by the fireplace, not too hot, not too cold. The server was sweet, attentive, but knew when to give space.
Certainly want to go back again when it's the regular menu.
Love this restaurant. We go there once a year for Christmas (yea we were really late this year). It fall on Valentine's weekend so there was a set brunch menu when we went. It was Fabulous! The 3 courses were spectacular -- and all went together well (of course you have choices of what to order). Planned on carrying the desert home, after a bite, but it only made it into my stomach! OMG I was so full, but the whole experience was fulfilling! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this restaurant!
Very quaint little restaurant with outstanding service. We had the four course meal and everything was delicious. Was a little bit overpriced for the four course meal but not so bad that we wouldn’t return! All in all it was very good food and recommend for a date or special occasion.
From the moment we arrived we felt as if the experience was only for us. The staff was friendly and very courteous. We were seated in a quiet area but not sequestered alone.
Our server was polite and genuinely concerned that we have a wonderful time. She answered every question we had and was glad to let us know her favorites when we asked her. From the moment she greeted us until we said goodnight we felt as if we were her only table.
I honestly do not know where to begin when describing the food. I can say that it was the best food I have ever tasted in a restaurant. I am no world traveler so I do not know how my palate compares to others, but it was simply amazing.
My wife and I both had the three course menu since it was a special event for the Valentines weekend. She started with their peanut soup. It was fantastic. No other way to describe it. I enjoyed the goat cheese and date salad. It also was wonderful.
The next course was her crab cakes and my salmon. I knew that would be an opportunity to try something that I would not normally order. So I chose a dish that included goat cheese grits and sweet potato fettuccini. It was out of this world. The fettuccini went so well with the salmon that I feel they were made to go together and the goat cheese grits just topped it off perfectly.
So not having enough room but knowing it was coming we welcomed dessert. She enjoyed the creme brûlée cheesecake and I had the salted caramel vanilla crunch cake. Paired with a cup of coffee each, we could have sat there enjoying that dessert until that told us it was time to close. It was that good and we did not want it to end.
So I would give this rating a 10 stars out of 5 if it were possible. If you are looking for an incredible evening of food and ambiance then please make plans for a visit to the Red Fox Inn in Middleburg, VA. You will not be sorry and before you finish your meal you be looking forward to the next time you visit.
Consistently great food and service! Incredibly fresh seafood and perfect filet, we love the four course dinner with wine pairings. This is our go to restaurant when we stay at the Salamander.
This has been one of our go to places but our Valentines dinner as a disappointment. The meal was just OK, but for the high price it was just not a good value. We will continue to go but only if we can order off the regular menu. Make sure you go on a nice evening in late Spring, Summer or Fall and make reservations to eat outside on the patio. Still a favorite place to go but not with a set fixed price menu.
Great waiter, food, atmosphere. Sat next to the fireplace and had a very nice meal.
Been going here for 15 years primarily for weekend brunch. Brunch meal choices are 80-percent lunch. Used to have great omelets and need to bring them back. Great atmosphere, professional and accommodating staff , and convenient parking. Provide more breakfast options and it will help. Thanks for a great occasion.
Amazing food and great service!! I would definitely recommend and plan to dine here again soon!
Great time at the Red Fox Inn. Will come again.
This is a quaint historic place with amazing food. We make the 2 hour twice a year and this is always one of our stops.
We really enjoyed celebrating a Birthday here. The staff were both professional and very friendly. The food delicious and the ambiance cozy. We will definitely be back.
This is just a lovely old world restaurant with fabulous food!
