Despite dining during COVID, the patio surrounded by tent was lovely and we felt adequately spaced from other tables. The service was excellent and the food was as well.
Exceptional service. Best dining experience I’ve had in covid times.
Amazing dinner that was tastefully prepared and presented and left a rich and earthy feeling to satisfy the palate —- exceeding my expectations
While a tad expensive, the food quality and portions did not disappoint. The outdoor dining set up top notch with plenty of social distancing between tables. The service was outstanding as our waitress was supported by multiple assistants.
We enjoyed the tasting menu with wine pairing. Everything was DELICIOUS and the service was wonderful!
Service and food was great! Definitely going back.
Amazing food and wonderful service. It’s a nice atmosphere they have set up in the garden but it feels almost too casual. The meal and service was wonderful though! Delicious.
We loved our server, she made the birthday celebration very special. The food was amazing, expensive but amazing. Even though we had to be outside, it was a very comfortable temperature under the tent with a nice breeze. I was never too cold or too hot. Thank you for an awesome experience!
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!
Food quality, quantity and flavor was outstanding. Service was perfect. Great social distancing between tables and hardly any noise, quite music in the background.
I had eaten outdoors under the tent with the prefix menu and it was elegant, beautiful, comfortably warm (earlier in the season) , and the food and service really great. I preface this review with that sentence because I liked it so much I convinced good friends to have their wedding anniversary dinner there in early October after I was informed following multiple calls that they would still be out under the tent “with heaters”.
According to my friend’s reports, the meal and services were great, but they “froze” because the heater failed immediately after they were seated and no viable alternative could be found. So the romantic anniversary dinner wasn’t so romantic!!
My beef with the place is they offered no complimentary dessert or drink to them for the inconvenience, something which I would have expected at a minimum. Costs nothing really and would have prevented this review .
Heaters don’t work all the time in many places, but there is usually another available (which is perhaps poor planning on their part.). Even a follow up call to the restaurant and email to follow yielded little satisfaction beyond “we are sorry”
Still great place to eat, just not while it’s cold!
Surprised that it was a fixed multi course meal with only limited selections for each course. One should check to know what courses are being offered. None were of specific interest to my wife nor myself. Staff/service was only fair but did not appear to be super knowledgeable. Twice during our meal dishes were dropped.
Setting outdoors under a tent was very nice.
It was one of only a restaurants that is open on Mondays.
We enjoyed the food, service, and atmosphere in the large tent.
Delicious prix fixe menu!
Very COVID safe feeling. Tented back patio. Spaced out tables. Servers masked.
Will definitely return for a special occasion!
We had a great 38Th anniversary dinner at the Red Fox Inn. We have been there several times but hadn’t been out to eat at a restaurant since the start of the pandemic in March and were looking for a restaurant that truly had the safety of it’s guests in mind as well as delivering a great dining experience. The Red Fox came through in all these aspects for us. The dining room is now situated on their outdoor patio under a huge airy tent and tables are spaced well apart. The patio still delivered all the historic ambiance of the indoor dining room except for the large fireplace and wooden beams but perfect for a early fall evening. We had a four course Fall tasting menu with many appetizing choices. It was pricey but well worth it for a special dinner. Everything was delicious and I especially loved the butternut squash wontons for an appetizer. We had great service as always at the Red Fox. We look forward to coming back even during the pandemic as we feel they are really doing their best to continue providing an unparalleled dining experience during challenging times.
The four course tasting menu and wine pairings were delicious! Our server, Mason, was knowledgeable, personable and timely. We celebrated our 50th birthdays in style!
Food and service were excellent. If they are going to continue to have the tent, they will need heaters--it was a bit chilly once the sun went down.
Fantastic meal with fantastic service. Highly recommend!
Four course tasting menu was wonderful and the Virginia wine pairing was a great value.
Very lovely experience
Local wine pairings were just ok
Unusually chilly night...heaters would be nice
Really enjoyed the food and the service was great!
Love going here every time we visit middleburg! Delicious food. Pretty pricey, but worth every penny!
Summer tasting menu while in Middleburg. Exactly as advertised. Good food great service social distancing approved
We came for the summer samplee four course menu, of which each course was simply fine. Not superb, not better than any version of each item we've had elsewhere, just fine. The tent space was lovely and quiet, and the wait staff was very friendly and attentive, but again, the food didn't measure up to the price or reservations required, etc. We've also heard good things about their casual dining, which is closed for covid (except takeout); perhaps that is where they shine.
Great attention paid to social distancing and proper practices for pandemic times. The 4-course menu offered choices, and the chef combined solid cooking and good ingredients with some interesting twists. Our waiter was excellent, friendly and attentive but not intrusive. The tented patio was a pleasant setting for a birthday meal, quiet enough for conversation but still an upbeat atmosphere.
Staff was awesome. Food came out timely and not rushed. Wine pairings excellent. Setting wonderful.
Miss the Peanut Soup!
The Inn has adapted to Covid restrictions with outdoor tent dining on the patio. Meal was excellent, staff very attentive and the atmosphere was acceptable under the circumstances.
The Red Fox Inn never fails to impress. The service was outstanding. Our waiter was friendly and professional. The courses arrived in well-spaced intervals. The food was great too. What more could we ask. Thank you for a great evening. We enjoyed.
Because of COVID-19 there is only summer tasting menu at this time and it was delicious. Enjoyed every course as well as the wine pairings. Felt safe there too with their C19 protocol.
Really have made the outdoor dining experience very nice given the current health issues we face. Wait staff was attentive to our preferences and made great recommendations on what selections to make on the four course dinner menu
Food was great!!!
Excellent food and service! Unfortunately they only got outdoor seating (due to COVID) and while I was having a feast, so were the mosquitoes....
Had the tasting menu.exceptional food. Exceptional service. Great CoVID 19 response. Wanted to go back the next night. Will definitely return next time I am in Middleburg
Wonderful food and service. Pivot to outside space for covid exceeded my Expectations.
Our waitress Samara was incredible! The food was outstanding! Ambiance outside where we ate was beautiful.
It was pure delight to dine there!
Our pre-fixe menu meal was fantastic. Given COVID, they’re doing outdoor dining only, which on a nice night, was quite romantic. The pre-fixe menu piece is a tad steep, but we left full, so made it worth it.
