We’re Fairfax locals and have enjoyed coming to Barefoot for years. I am very picky with fish and Barefoot always serves the best variety. The owner goes to market twice weekly and creates a daily special that is my typical go to. They have homemade...More

Have eaten brunch here several times, and can always count on a very good meal. I like Chilaquilles, and the BC makes one of the better ones I've had. My wife thought her florentine scramble only average, however. Good home fries, too.

We stopped here for lunch mid-week on our way to Point Reyes. The place was fairly empty at 12:15PM, in part because it's more upscale than the majority of the eatery's in the immediate area. What particularly impressed us (we were a party of 4)...More

If you’re looking for an intimate little place to go with great ambiance and excellent food, along with a solid wine menu, Barefoot should be at the top of your list! Brunch is phenomenal, especially when the roasted pumpkin pancakes are on the menu. Wonderful...More
