My wife and I enjoyed a beautiful meal and amazing service last Saturday night. It was a busy evening yet the service was perfect. The meal alone was the best we have had in Barrie! Such detail and flavour. The server made suggestions as we had so much trouble deciding. Her descriptions as to her favourites made it easy to... More

Crazy Fox is a restaurant with an exceptional menu, reasonable wine list, but most important, the quality of service is superb, particularly if Nicole is your server The ambiance is very welcoming and the chef is extremely talented. I found the server to be quite knowledgeable about all of the offerings on the menu even though she wouldn't identify her... More

The visits I have made to the Crazy Fox Bistro have all been very similar experiences; very busy weekend evening, but the service was quick, lots of attention from the servers without hovering over you, if you ask for suggestions they give you honest answers, prices are a bit steep but the quality of your experience offsets the cost.

We had dinner at this establishment last night and we had a great experience. The chicken was amazing and the service was great. The servers were very busy, but they did not seem to rush us with all of our questions. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

They have two salads; The Caesar & The Boston "I love both" The balcony seating is fun and a free beer glass with an #Erdinger has created a nice glass collection for our new diggs! Like I said, twice in a week!

We recently dined there on a Saturday night. It was a wonderful meal and dining experience. The service was fantastic and the staff were very happy and seemed to all work together as a wonderful team to make sure everything was taken care of. We were in the upper level and there was a large group - but it didn't... More

Took my family to dinner and they were impressed. The food is wonderful. We sat outside, which faces a busy section of town, so it was noisy. But other than that, you have to try this great eating establishment.

We dined here one evening ( I felt a bit under dressed). Nice ambiance, staff seemed a bit short, but the dinner was good. Even though ( my husband a chef) detected it had been under a heat lamp a bit. All in all an enjoyed dinner.

Had been meaning to try for years after hearing rave reviews and was not disappointed. Dined with 2 friends on a weeknight and we all loved our meals. Very high quality ingredients, cooked expertly, at reasonable prices with a casual atmosphere and attentive service. A true gem in Barrie with its excessive number of mediocre chain restaurants. A must try!!
