Had high hopes based on other reviews but was disappointed. Fox Hollow Inn a catering facility that has its own restaurant sometimes called Volpe. If you're happy with catering hall food quality you might like this restaurant. If you want quality restaurant fare go elsewhere. Went on prime rib night. Prime rib was tasteless and seemed like it came from a steamer not freshly carved. Came with mashed potato they must be kidding. Onion soup with a most bland mozzarella on top. Caesar salad made table-side with an earlier prepared concoction. If you can't do it right make it in the kitchen. My wife's whole fish was just OK. The kitchen is focused on catering not gourmet dining.

Enjoyed an outstanding lunch - great array of options - all house made and delicious!
Difficult to choose from the selections - colleagues brought desserts home! Coffe was accompanied by a biscotti. Definitley not your every day lunch!

We've tried to like this place a few times but the cook (not chef) does not know what rare is. And for a place owned by the same people who own one or two other local stake places, they can't get the temperature correct for chicken or steak. Weird, like the Fox Hollow Inn, they just can't quite get it right.

Wonderful elegant experience. I had a delicious 2 lb lobster! $42 included a soup and a salad. the room was nicely apointed with table cloths and flowers and everyone enjoyed the meal. They had a piano player as well.

After working all day at a location next to the restaurant, we saw the "LobsterWednesday"special noted in the lobby of the hotel next door so we decided to treat ourselves. This was no treat. When we got there there were two rooms in the restaurant: one completely empty and the other completely full. We found out that the reason one was completely empty was because it contained an amplified piano player that was so loud you couldn't hear the conversation of the person sitting next to you. The room that was full wasn't any better as we got seated next to a table of six cackling hens.

The next disappointment was that they were all out of lobster by a little after 8PM so there went the whole concept of getting something special. We were starved by then so we ordered anyway and while the food was tasty, the whole experience was a real disappointment.
