Description: If you're ready for a new fine-dining experience, it's time to visit Foti's Restaurant in Culpeper, Virginia. The superb service, delicate flavors, and extraordinary wines rival those of the finest restaurants in the Washington, D.C., area. Indeed, owners Frank and Sue Maragos refined their talents at the world-famous Inn at Little Washington prior to opening Foti's in 2005. Yet the friendly atmosphere and small-town hospitality are uniquely Foti's, which is why the establishment bears Frank's childhood nickname. Foti's menu revolves around the finest local products, including grass-fed beef and lamb, handmade cheeses, and heirloom vegetables and herbs.

We stayed at Suites 249 a few doors down and were a little hesitant to try Foti's because of the disparate reviews. Well, we obviously hit it on a good night. It was mid-week we were the only ones there at first and a few more tables came in later. Our waitress was delightful. We started with salmon-filled, breadcrumb crusted... More

This place has potential but our Sunday brunch disappointed. The dishes weren't especially inspired and the service was slow and pushy. I don't mind when staff make suggestions, but when they start telling you really should have an appetizer (not "would you like an appetizer?") they've crossed a line. When I say I don't want a beer, telling me they... More

Given this special treat when taken here by my cousins, while visiting. Casual attire. First impression is immaculate and understated elegance. Our little Yorkie , in his carrier, was welcome...a joy to me because you cannot leave your pet in the car ...anytime....but especially on a hot day. The fact that Foti's restaurant allows pets in carriers is wonderful! Staff... More

I have eaten food around the world. On Tuesday I had the Hawaiian salad and the apple custard for desert. The salad was a good size portion and delicious with the apple slivers, coconut and pineapple. Also, no iceberg! As for the desert I had to restrain myself from licking the plate. How nice to walk out of a restaurant... More

We stopped in with friends on a Sunday to enjoy a nice lunch before heading to a local winery. We were very impressed with the menu, it had many nice items, which made the decision tough. When the server advised of the specials, we chose a couple; the curried egg salad and garlic potato soup. The soup had a somewhat... More

One of our favs and one we recommend to friends. Maybe not now.......We first went for dinner shortly after they opened - our engagement. We loved the Inn of Little Washington and encouraged to hear the former sous chef had opened another establishment. It was a wonderful night and a wonderful dinner. I still remember the stellar presentation of each... More

We were staying in Orange for a long weekend and ended up at Foti's because it was one of the few nice area restaurants open on Sunday evening (our anniversary). How fortunate for us!
