My daughter and I visited this restaurant because we had seen it on Groupon. What a great find! The food was excellent, and the service even better. Both the waitress and the host visited our table many times to check on us. We felt special and will return often, even though it's a bit of a drive.

In answer to your question, yes we have had better Steaks [for example Ruth Chris]. The service was good, but we now know to not to go on a Friday night. There were too many young children. We love our own Grandchildren, but not while we are trying to enjoy a Steak Dinner.

The food and service were excellent. I was especially impressed with the host ( a gentleman) who came over and asked how our meal was. Large portions, with fresh, high quality ingredients. Everything is made from scratch and tastes wonderful. The atmosphere is great and they even have an outdoor area. We would have loved to sit out there, but... More

The atmosphere was lovely, the patio was small & charming, we didn't sit outside, I wanted to, but the rest of the family did not. The food was quite good, and we will definitely go again. However, my son & I were still a bit hungry after the meal. While I don't want to fill up on a rolls &... More

We went to Foxfire with a Groupon last night. We read about the no alcohol exclusion that they apply, so we were not surprised. No worries, cost for two dinners easily exceeds the Groupon threshold. Service was professional. We were greeted warmly. Best part of the meal was the French martini. My husband had the prime rib. While we doubt... More

Sat outside which we loved even though the patio overlooks a parking lot(not the restaurant's fault). Server pleasant. Food was good. Had a salad with shrimp which was excellent. Coffee Gelato for dessert was great. The disappointment was that we had a Groupon and was advised that the groupon is not good towards alcohol. I am fine with that if... More

Odd layout--shotgun style space--so a grouping of tables in front by the bar (with 2 TVs), then about 5 booths flanking one wall (strangely opposite the servers beverage stand--odd, odd placement; we felt like we were in the servers space. They would congregate there, fold napkins at a station right behind the back of my seat, etc.--but it was low... More

Most nice/trendy restaurants in the St. Charles/Geneva area have their tables so close together that they don't lend themselves to conduct business in. Firefox is an exception. Their dining room is spacious. In addition it is very well appointed and not as noisy as you'd expect, even on a Friday night. Their New England Clam Chowder, Filet Mignon, Bernaise Sauce,... More
