We had the Spring tasting menu. The first two courses were fantastic. The main course my husband said the duck had a lack of flavor but was cooked well. We went on a Monday so we had the entire dining room to ourselves. We hadn't been out just the two of us in over a year so we really enjoyed the special feeling that we booked the entire restaurant!

Service was the star at this charming dinner experience. The tasting was overall delicious and the portions were sizable. The outdoor dining was charming, and everyone was so accommodating during these odd times. I can only image what it's like to dine next to one of the roaring fires inside - next time!

Great food experience. Our specific wait staff was sub-par but the food was very good. We had the Tasting Experience which I found to be a good mix of items. We had rabbit wontons (5*), oysters/brie (5*), beet salad (4*), carrot ginger bisque (5*), portobello mushroom (4*), scallops (4*), sweet potato fries (5*), mushroom side (3*) and roasted strawberry bread pudding (4*).
We sat outside under the tents. It was nice. Got chilly, but nice and well distanced.

Tasting menu and wine pairing were excellent. Cocktails were mixed. We provided feedback about the music which was on a Canon in D wedding march loop. Just gave a very outdated vibe.

Preparation and presentation superb. Overpriced. Wine by the bottle---good value; by the glass overpriced. Room too dark. Couldn't read the wine list.

Outstanding in every way! My gal pals and I did the small plates and they were all delicious. Do not miss the Piedmont Spritz ‘Foxtail’! It was so amazing, we each had 3!! The Inn, restaurant and our waiter Justin were all fantastic! I can’t wait to come back!

We were looking forward to some interesting cuisine and good wines, to celebrate our anniversary. My food was okay but my wife's lamb was tough, even with the steak knife. The flourless torte wasn't firm, as we would have expected; and far too sweet. The wines were atrocious. And at the prices charged, the word SCAM comes to mind. I wouldn't drink them if they were gifted to me. And I'm no wine snob. I can't recall that I've ever left so harsh a review of any restaurant I've patronized anywhere in the US or Europe.

The four-course dinner was vey good, marred somewhat by an obnoxious guest at a not-too-distant table. The rack of lamb course was simply too much to eat, despite its good taste. Service was excellent.

We had a girls get away at the Red Fox Inn. Our evening meal was at the tavern where we chose the 4 course tasting experience with the Virginia wine. We found the food to be delicious, beautifully plated and a nice selection. I do wish we had not chosen the VA wine pairing. Unfortunately, we only enjoyed one of the wines which was the sparkling paired with the first course. The second wine immediately was lost as it was paired with the beet salad. The sweet dessert wine was too sweet for the dessert. The food, service and ambiance were wonderful. Enjoy the meal and choose your own wines!
