Visited the Red Fox Tavern for the fall prix fixe. For the significant price tag ($125pp) I found the outdoor setting unappealing (no table cloth), the first two courses small (two wontons, a cup of bisque, each for about $25), and the execution mixed (halibut and starter salad were much too sweat). I'd be glad to try again when the full menu is available.

We went for our one year anniversary. It was certainly an expensive meal, but every bite was delicious, our server Brandon was unbelievably kind and accommodating, and there wasn’t anything to complain about the experience at all! Highly recommended

Very disappointed by the experience. We have eaten at many really good restaurants before, but this was not one of them. The price point was way too high and the service was mediocre: a lack of attention to detail, food before drinks, asking for silverware, forgetting drinks, not knowing the menu well.... the actual inn is very nice and cozy. The staff at the inn and restaurant were very nice. The back patio is very nice, but the furniture both in and out is not what I expected for the price of the dinner. Conceptually the dinner menu is great, but the execution of the dinner missed the mark. I will be hard pressed to ever go back and I also would not recommend this, as you too, will also most likely be disappointed.

When I walked in I was expecting to see a beautiful restaurant considering their website advertises gourmet food. It looks like the Cracker Barrel on the inside and I was super shocked. So I hoped it would be better with the food but unfortunately the food was terrible as well. This entire meal cost is $320 for just two people. I recommend you never go to this restaurant because you will be just as disappointed as we were

We were there for the fixed price menu - $125/person (when you add drinks and tip it’s $195/person). Maybe my expectations were too high but the meal was nothing you couldn’t find anywhere else for 1/4 of the price. For that price point, I think you should be blown away by the food and service.

The Red Fox was such a great experience. Their tasting menu had wonderful choices for each course and the portions were generous. They have a good wine list with nice options by the glass, as well as some great specialty cocktails (we didn't have any beer, but the list looked good). And, importantly, the service was perfect from the moment we walked in until the very end. We can't wait to come back. Check out their menu online; if you like the sound of the menu, you will not be disappointed. Lastly, the pricing is fair for the quality and quantity you get. It's not an everyday type of restaurant budget-wise, but for a special dinner out, your expectations will be met, if not exceeded. Ours were.

The food was amazing! We did the tasting menu, and it was one of the best dinners we’ve had. Get the butternut squash wontons. And the hot cider. All the vegetarian dishes were incredibly tasty and creative. They have also managed to make the outside tent pretty and romantic.

Food and service were as amazing as ever! My only complaint would be that they had a heater in the tent outside that kept turning on an off. When it was on, it was loud but it got chilly when they turned it off. Overall the tables were spaced apart well, service was impeccable and the food was the same high quality that we expect from Red Fox.

The food was great, the service was excellent. For outdoor dining during the colder months, though, they need to invest in some heaters. It was very cold during dinner.We have the autumn tasting menu and it was phenomenal.

The fall four course meal was superb - especially the butternut squash won tons! They were probably the best thing I have ever tasted! Service was fantastic, and I appreciate the server and chef letting me substitute a few wines from the wine pairing menu since I prefer white wine to red. Appreciate their flexibility on that! Kudos all around!
