Very nice meal. Good service and good ambiance. Food was very good. Only issue is the cost: At $125 per person. The overall experience did not match up with that price point. Felt like it should have been more of a $95 price fix.

Nice restaurant, where we have been many times before. But, despite the 'special' meal because of the holidays, it was way too expensive. With prices like these we will not return.

Food and wine pairings were delicious.

We do prefer to have our wine pairing served before or with the food. Since the food was served first, for most courses, we sat awkwardly waiting for the wine before we resumed eating.

Our experience was absolutely lovely! The service was exceptional and the food was very well prepared and a treat for the palate. We did sit in close proximity to a noisy gathering, but the children and adults alike were just having a good time playing games and such, surely making great Christmas memories. The servers were conscientious and it proved to be a successful celebratory occasion. Thank you Red Fox Inn & Tavern!

Grant was such an excellent guide through our culinary experience. We learned about the history of the establishment as well as the local farms and vineyards where much of the ingredients for our meals were sourced. We did the 4 course tasting menu which was outstanding. Such a wide array of flavors and textures to satisfy any palette. We struck up a conversation with some fellow patrons celebrating an anniversary and they were so friendly and kind. A truly unique and historic dining journey that should be experienced by all who choose to visit the area.

The choices for the prix fixed dinner are amazing. I had rabbit which was crisp on the outside with a lovely apple cider glaze and so succulent/moist on the inside. Everything on the menu was spot on and worth the price. Good wine list with very reasonably priced very good wines. I highly recommend this venue for an enjoyable evening out eating excellent food.

We sat upstairs for Mom's 80th birthday party. Very enjoyable. A little dark, but we made due. The noise level was good, but on the slightly louder side. But fine. Food was very good and special for our special occasion.

I really enjoyed our experience at the Red Fox. Superb food and service and a beautiful, quiet and cozy atmosphere. Was it $455 worth of superb for two people? I’m not sure, but it was excellent. At that price point, its close to Inn at Little Washington prices, and as good as it was it’s not quite the same level. I will definitely be back as the food was outstanding and will always recommend it to friends.

We have been to Red Fox for brunch many times. which was always fantastic. Hopefully they will be serving it again soon. Their special Thanksgiving dinner was a whole other level of spectacular!

The four course menu provided a lot of food and ultimately is expensive $ 125/person (without wine). The dining area is very nice and service is excellent.

It was a special occasion so I splurged ($ wise).

We were celebrating our anniversary and we could not pick a better restaurant. Although it took a little while to receive our initial service, the waitress was apologetic and knocked it out of the park for the remainder of our time. Food was phenomenal and very great wine pairings.

I took my wife here for her birthday, and we both loved the Experience. We've done several 3 and 4-course dinners together and a lot of the time we are left a little hungry still. Not an issue here! The serving sizes left us leaving full and happy. We both loved all of our choices and would definitely consider dining with them again in the future.

It is pricy, so, unfortunately, it can't be a regular thing for us. #YOLO #NoRegrets
