When we made our dinner reservation, they didn't tell us that there is STILL a cover charge for dinner! But you're supposed get HALF back after you eat.
As we were paying the cover, I noticed people smoking at the bar, just steps away from where we would be dining. I asked about this and the hostess said she would check with the manager. But as more people lit up, and purchased cigarettes from the bartender, it became apparent that this is a common practice.
As we ordered drinks, we were asked to "run a tab". What fine dining place takes a credit card when you're there for dinner? The waitress told us "it would make it easier for her".
We nearly left at that point, but it was already late.
The food was good, but not worth the prices they charge. I thought the band was good, but my husband was disappointed that they didn't really play jazz, they just "jazzed up" the rock tunes.
When the bill came, we had to ask for an itemization so that we could check everything. They added a $1.20 "service fee" for what I don't know. I guess maybe we sat too long after dinner without ordering another drink?
Drink prices are STEEP. $12 for a cosmo. $8.50 for Grey Goose PLUS another $1.50 because it was on the rocks and $6.50 for a domestic beer. Even with a $25 gift certificate, our final bill was $70. I only had soup and salad.
Our cover charge wasn't credited on the final bill, we had to ask for it on the way out.
The whole experience felt really sleazy, I felt like they had their hands in our pockets the entire night.
While the atmosphere was nice and the food was decent, we were very disappointed and will not be returning to The Fox.
Pros: Atmosphere if you want to pay through the nose for it.
Cons: Nickel and Diming, Dishonest practices, Smoking nearby
