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! Do not miss a chance to dine at Red Fox Inn & Tavern! It’s wonderful on every level-service, food, drinks, and ambience!

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

Outstanding 4 course dinner. Quite possibly the best I’ve ever had. I had the lamb)medium rare) while my wife has the scallops. Both were excellent, but next time we’d both get the lamb!

The food was excellent. One of the best filet steaks I've ever had. The service was top-notch. The setting was very nice - some other patrons were a little loud, but overall very pleasant experience.

Our server was inattentive; our entrees came out 30 minutes after 3 tables that ordered 20 Minutes after us. I had to ask our waitress about the status of our meal. We were only a group of 3, so our party size wasn’t too large.

The food was fantastic. However the service and ambience just didn’t match the price point or capability of the chef. Extremely loud music from the upstairs bar and a server who didn’t know the menu (particularly the house selected wine pairings) made for wonderful food that we wish we could have eaten somewhere else.

I have been to Red Fox many times. It has always been consistent in both service and quality. This is why my husband and I chose this for our 10th anniversary. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. The service was borderline non-existent. I understand that we are still dealing with COVID but that is not an excuse for inattentive service. As soon as our server asked if we wanted the wine pairing with our meal and we replied no thank you, it started. She made a face and everything went down hill. I watched her be extremely attentive to the tables around us but barely acknowledged our table. She didn’t ask us how our meal was; didn’t offer coffee or after dinner drinks. Just dropped the check on the table and walked away. I honestly could not believe that this was the level of service we received when we were paying $125 per person for dinner. My meal was fine. The starter of beef wontons was the star of the meal. My husbands meal though was bland. His steak had no seasoning, the black truffle butter was indiscernible and the the sauce that accompanied the steak was bland. We have never had a bad meal here. The pecan pie was so hard we couldn’t even cut it. I don’t know what happened last night. After that I don’t think I could recommend the four course tasting experience. My experience was definitely not worth the price.

We had an amazing anniversary experience with their Fixed Four Course dinner with some wine pairings and a Mini Möet. Justin at the bar was fantastic and was our sever as well as had a good bit of knowledge on the food and wine pairing. The the whole team from greeting, to finding the hidden restrooms, to leaving was great. The desert came out with a little congratulations chocolate across the top.

The horse paintings, both new and old, gave it that horse country ambiance. There was even a little mini-speaker outside the restrooms so people doing their business had some privacy as did us in the hallway.

This was a truly amazing experience in Middleburg.

Note - The staff did wear masks, as did we, until we were seated and again upon our departure. There was not a mask requirement or vaccination status posted. The seats in the dining area were separated by 6-8 feet.
