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

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

Great steaks; had the surf and turf with small steak and lobster - lobster just ok. Salad was not so impressive. Nice desserts. Nice atmosphere. Easy location.

Enjoyed Foxfire for a business dinner and really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Located right off the strip through town, the restaurant offered a quiet place to enjoy conversation and great food.

Started off with App's of Prime Rib egg rolls and bacon wrapped dates. Both were just okay. Split a lunch item with my husband, the cajun ribeye sandwich. Again, okay, but very very thin for $19.00. Disappointed with flavor. Might try again for dinner, maybe if you could eat outside.
