Description: Established in 2003, FoxFire is a premier restaurant located in Geneva, IL. FoxFire is an award winning restaurant with such accolades as the Daily Herald's "Top Ten New Restaurants", On the Fox's "Top Ten", the Kane County Chronicle's "Best Steaks", as well as West Suburban Living's "Top New Restaurant - Best in the West." Located on the north side of State Street (Route 38) and just a half block west of the Fox River in Geneva, Illinois, FoxFire Restaurant is an essential part of experiencing the charm and hospitality of beautiful Geneva, IL. We offer aged prime beef, chops and fresh seafood in an intimate, yet elegant setting of original brick and wooden trellises dating from the early 1900's when horse and carriages roamed the streets, men tipped top hats, and woman curtsied. We are certain you will find our food and charm unsurpassed in our unique and wonderful town.

Stopped in based on good reviews and had calamari which was fine but not great. Then one of us had the filet which was small but very tender. The other had new York strip which literally took 3-4 saws with the knife to get through it. With the one side of mashed potatoes it was almost $100. Don't mind paying for a good steak but the new York strip ruined the experience.

Have been coming to this nice place for years and we often stop in on Monday for their burger special. Beef or blackbean burger served on white linen table cloth and napkin with great service for $6. More if you want cheese or a side other than fries or salad. All told we usually end up having a cocktail or glass of beer and dinner for two ends up being 30 bucks with tip but it's far better than going to your typical gourmet burger place and the full menu gives those who want more lot's of choices.

Would love to know more about what you thought about the food- I saw that got 4 stars. Anything we could be doing to enhance that?

Four Star meals in a casual atmosphere. We went during the winter, so we did not experience outdoor dining but they do have a private outdoor patio.

It has a bar area in the same room as the main dining area, so the noise level can be a little lively but not enough to disturb your dining experience.

The Prime Rib special was ala cart, so I added my own choices for sides. Everything was prepared perfectly and delicious.

The owner makes the rounds and is friendly and attentive to customer service.

We will definitely come back during the summer months.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Geneva. I always get the filet and it never disappoints. This restaurant is known for its aged beef and there is a reason for it!! My husband tries other menu items and enjoys them. The restaurant was busy mid -week. They were running specials that sensed tho be popular with the other guests.

Review in a nutshell- nice place to dine with friends. Steaks, chops, chicken, seafood. Cute interior. Pricey.
Tip- Do not bother with parking in front of the restaurant on the street side. Ample parking and entrance in the back.
