Tasting menu and wine pairing were excellent. Cocktails were mixed. We provided feedback about the music which was on a Canon in D wedding march loop. Just gave a very outdated vibe.

Preparation and presentation superb. Overpriced. Wine by the bottle---good value; by the glass overpriced. Room too dark. Couldn't read the wine list.

Outstanding in every way! My gal pals and I did the small plates and they were all delicious. Do not miss the Piedmont Spritz ‘Foxtail’! It was so amazing, we each had 3!! The Inn, restaurant and our waiter Justin were all fantastic! I can’t wait to come back!

We were looking forward to some interesting cuisine and good wines, to celebrate our anniversary. My food was okay but my wife's lamb was tough, even with the steak knife. The flourless torte wasn't firm, as we would have expected; and far too sweet. The wines were atrocious. And at the prices charged, the word SCAM comes to mind. I wouldn't drink them if they were gifted to me. And I'm no wine snob. I can't recall that I've ever left so harsh a review of any restaurant I've patronized anywhere in the US or Europe.

The four-course dinner was vey good, marred somewhat by an obnoxious guest at a not-too-distant table. The rack of lamb course was simply too much to eat, despite its good taste. Service was excellent.

We had a girls get away at the Red Fox Inn. Our evening meal was at the tavern where we chose the 4 course tasting experience with the Virginia wine. We found the food to be delicious, beautifully plated and a nice selection. I do wish we had not chosen the VA wine pairing. Unfortunately, we only enjoyed one of the wines which was the sparkling paired with the first course. The second wine immediately was lost as it was paired with the beet salad. The sweet dessert wine was too sweet for the dessert. The food, service and ambiance were wonderful. Enjoy the meal and choose your own wines!

Dined for 50th birthday. We were outside on the tented patio. Heaters weren’t working very well and unfortunately was uncomfortably cold. Ended up taking desserts to go as a result. Food was good - would suggest adding a filet for picky eaters who don’t want things like quail, duck, or rabbit.

Thie Red Fox Inn is a charming restaurant. I have gone a few times. The food can vary, however, even though the menu doesn't change for months. Lambwas good one time, a little tough another. The oysters rockefeller were delicious one time, mushy another. Servive is usually quite good but can disappear for a while sometimes. Overall, I like it but it can do a little better on consistency.

My husband and I enjoyed the Valentine's dinner. We sat out in the tent on the patio. It was plenty warm enough to take off coats. The lighting was pretty. I felt comfortably spaced apart from others. The food was delicious especially the quail first course and the bread pudding dessert. Also loved my cocktail and wine. Attentive friendly service. Expensive, but a great place for a special occasion dinner.

Valentines- Food was really good- especially the Lobster Bisque. Only downside to review is the VA wine pairing for taste size glasses, not worth the price, I recommend a bottle purchase.

I had a fantastic nearly vegan meal. My main course was fully vegan - a wonderful stuffed portabella mushroom - stuffed with a nut and grain mixture - along with pureed squash, and garlicky kale on the side. Fantastic meal!

We were celebrating my Birthday. We informed the restaurant at the time of making reservations and we also informed them when they called to confirm our reservations. Nothing special was provided...no piece of cake with candles...nothing. First time I have ever celebrated my birthday without a piece of cake and candles. Very sad, especially considering the cost of the meal.
