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 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! The menu is very creative and everything we had was delicious! Especially loved the kale and butternut squash salad and the lamb steak! The staff were... More

An excellent restaurant in Culpeper along the main drag. A perfect place to stop and have cold beer and some creative salads on a hot and muggy day. The service was excellent and the price was reasonable.

The staff is well trained and very friendly. We had just sat down when two servers appeared and were filling our water glasses.The food was unexpectedly good for such as small town location. All the food is farm to table and really fresh. Davis street is a great place to visit in the historic section of Culpeper.

We live in Culpeper and we love to go to Foti's. The owners are engaging and the food is always a treat. Many things on the menu (the winners) are always the same, but they certainly try new and interesting ones. And the volume of the dining is somewhat quiet and that's a good thing for those of us who... More

My friend and I had a lunch and a dinner during our 2 day stay in Culpeper. We shared a large salad for lunch, and both of us thoroughly enjoyed the Shrimp Byzantine for dinner the next evening. Service was prompt on both occasions. Grant, our waiter, was most gracious and friendly. I would highly recommend Foti's.

This was recommend to us by the owner of The Thyme Inn as his restaurants were closed for Memorial Day. We had a superb meal from start to finish….the owners used to be at the Inn at Little Washington and the menu reflected that level of sophistication.
