The food and service are excellent however the price is not justified by the menu and ambiance. Better values and meals can be experienced in the area.

A fabulous night out to kick off our Middleburg getaway! The Spring Tasting Menu and wine pairings were top notch. We all ordered different choices, tried each other’s, and there were no disappointing bites. The Brie baked oysters and the rabbit with mashed potatoes were out of this world, but it was really all delicious. Our server, Justin, was a delight. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely get this on our list of “must return” restaurants!

The atmosphere was nice and the wait staff were knowledgeable and friendly. The courses were well paced and we enjoyed each of the suggested wine pairings. A bit pricy, but the portions are generous and we left very satisfied with our experience.

The food was good but I expected a lot more based on the price and website presentation. When all said and done, for a $400 dining experience (included tip) I have high expectations. I have had many meals that equaled or exceeded this meal for half the price. For my main entree I ordered the rack of lamb medium rare and it was prepared medium which was a big disappointment. I expected better from an establishment that presents as the Red Fox did.

We had the Spring tasting menu. The first two courses were fantastic. The main course my husband said the duck had a lack of flavor but was cooked well. We went on a Monday so we had the entire dining room to ourselves. We hadn't been out just the two of us in over a year so we really enjoyed the special feeling that we booked the entire restaurant!

Service was the star at this charming dinner experience. The tasting was overall delicious and the portions were sizable. The outdoor dining was charming, and everyone was so accommodating during these odd times. I can only image what it's like to dine next to one of the roaring fires inside - next time!

Great food experience. Our specific wait staff was sub-par but the food was very good. We had the Tasting Experience which I found to be a good mix of items. We had rabbit wontons (5*), oysters/brie (5*), beet salad (4*), carrot ginger bisque (5*), portobello mushroom (4*), scallops (4*), sweet potato fries (5*), mushroom side (3*) and roasted strawberry bread pudding (4*).
We sat outside under the tents. It was nice. Got chilly, but nice and well distanced.

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.
