Food was great and so was the staff. Loved that the owner would come by, say hello. Seemed like a lot of pride in ownership. I would recommend.

The drinks and food were great and we enjoyed the overall experience. Towards the end, though, right after my wife and I had commented about how professional our server and the staff was, our server disappeared. It took enough time for him to resurface that we wondered if we had been abandoned. When we did see him again he seemed... More

We hadn't tried this restaurant, and saw great reviews on TA. The meal and service was beyond fantastic! Kerri was our server--and she had a lot of support staff to help take care of us. It was like clock work. We started with the stuffed bacon wrapped dates...excellent. Then my husband had French onion soup--delicious. I had a half beet... More

This steakhouse is in a building on a main thoroughfare in downtown Geneva but there is ample parking behind a back entrance. The inside of the 125-year old building has been restored so you can see the original wooden beams as well as the warm brick walls, so the restaurant, which is much larger than it appears from the front,...

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
