Service is truly excellent, even ended up having a conversation with Kurt the owner, an absolute gentleman. WE decided to try the burger menu which was on special, fantastic choice. Good quality meat, well presented, great value and portion size. The wine list is reasonably priced and quite extensive. No matter if you want smart dining or casual food this... More

Foxfire did not "officially" participate in Geneva's Restaurant Week $39 dinner special but they offered their own special which consisted of the option of $44 dinner for 2 or $66 which included wine pairings. We chose the $66 special per couple and we each received a brisket bruchetta appetizer, our choice of different 4 salads, 5 entrees and 4 desserts... More

Started with chicken tortilla soup. Fantastic. Great tomato base with little kick of hotness. I had the stuffed peppers as my entree. Served over bell pepper risotto. Wow. Can't wait to go back for dinner. Top notch.

Food was delicious and the atmosphere very nice. I ordered the filet, my friend had the shrimp scampi. We both had 1/2 wedge salads. We shared sides of brussels sprouts and garlic mashed potatoes. The filet was cooked perfectly. We both had dessert. I had the chocolate cake and my friend had the tiramisu. Loved mine, but she was disappointed... More

We eat here every year when we visit Geneva and have not been disappointed. The food is very good and the service is good. We enjoyed Saldo Zinfandel wine with our meal. I had the Nappa Chicken and my wife had the scallops. We enjoyed the bacon-wrapped dates for an appetizer. If it is a cold day, you may want... More

We had visited the annual art show and decided to stop in and enjoy a pleasant lunch. We ordered the Salmon with salad and vegetables. It was going well till my wife pulled out a long hair from her salad. We called the waiter and he spoke to the manager, who came out and said, "I´m sorry" and that was... More

FoxFire is wonderful! They accommodated a party of 12 during a busy time which was great, our waitress was awesome and the food was delicious! Add to that the talented group that played live music, you couldn't ask for a better birthday dinner! There were easily a dozen things I wanted to try but decided on bscon wrapped dates for... More

The steak was good, but for the price, I was definitely left wanting more from this place. Overall it was average at best. I will likely be trying other restaurants in the area before finding myself back here.

I love this place ! My husband had been previously for a work event and kept saying how nice it was...so I said 'Stop telling me how great it is, take me.." It's just lovely...we were seated right away (apparently Thursdays are their quiet night) We were taken care of like royalty. The food was excellent, the service was great...... More

My wife and I came here for an early dinner on our date night. The staff are all very friendly and attentive, and the restaurant itself is well-decorated and clean, with a large bar and a beautiful ceiling. Our order was taken and delivered promptly, and I have to say, the bleu-cheese encrusted New York Strip steak I had was... More
