Excellent food, great place to meet with friends or family for dinner

Loved the staff, and food was the best. Had the Salad and the dessert. Soup, and the Creme Brulee was amazing.

The place is cosy, good location, plenty of parking. Service was ok, nothing special. Food presentation is very good, but it is overpriced for a quality. I had a salmon, and it was a disappointment, as long as it was dry and obviously previously frozen. One shouldn't pay top dollar for frozen fish.

We reserved a table for four upstairs. They gave us a table downstairs which was in a poor location. We were not very happy and they did nothing to make the experience better. The meal was good but have had better for the price. The wine list is very expensive. We would not go back.

The menu is awesome- we had the stuffed pork, the pickerel feature and the agnolotti for entrees. The mushroom soup was somewhat canned tasting, but still comfort food, none-the-less. Dessert was tasty- the apple pecan cake was great, and you can't go wrong with chocolate cheesecake. The down-side was the that the portion sizes were smaller than expected, for the... More

The Crazy Fox Bistro never dissapoints. The food is always excellent and the service is wonderful. During our last visit Denise served us, she was amazing and made our evening that much more enjoyable. This is definitely one of my favorite places for a lovely evening out.

I had my staff appreciation dinner at Crazy Fox last year and we all had a wonderful dinner and a great experience. So we decided and were excited about going there again for this years dinner. Our reservations were for 7pm for 6 people. One party did not show up. Finally at 7:40 the waitress came to the table and... More
