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.

I can't say enough about this restaurant where every time I've had lunch or dinner I've had a 5 star experience; but today I decided to write about it because I was blown away by the lamb soup and burger special. This fabulous meal was accompanied by their usual excellent service and great ambience. Definitely the best place to eat... More

A very innovative menu with lots of dishes to explore, including a fantastic vegetarian delight. My salmon was perfect. Also, the noise level in the restaurant was calm enough that we could hear each other speak, even though it was very busy.

Went here for a Saturday evening dinner. The restaurant itself is very cozy and charming. Service was great; very friendly. The food, however, we found to be lacking, given the price. Would possibly give it another try but perhaps look for something different next time.

I was very disappointed. My husband took me and a couple that we have known for many years to Foti's for my birthday dinner. When I looked online to see where he was taking me I anticipated a wonderful and special experience. Instead we had terrible service and average food. Our server lacked any basic knowledge of wine and despite... More

We were disappointed at the selection and presentation. I ordered the traditional turkey dinner and my husband ordered a pork dish. They had large portions but half-hazzardly put together. The turkey was moist but the rest of the plate was mushy. Unfortunately for us, this was the only restaurant open nearby because of the holiday.

Dropped in for lunch with my cousin. Girls Day out for shopping and a nice lunch. The waitress was wonderful. She sat us near the fire when we told her we needed a quiet place for girl talk. She didn't mind at all that we occupied her table for over two hours! She was attentive, but not too attentive. We... More

My husband and I had just finished a long day of physical labor and decided to treat ourselves to dinner, not knowing the area we just drove until we found something that looked good! We stumbled upon Foti's, and wow what a keeper! Beautiful old building with great ambience, I must admit the front door was a little hard to... More

All of the food I had was amazing! The fish and chips was divine, the fresh mozzarella was the best, and the pork shank was cooked perfectly! I was even pleasantly surprised by the portions, I could not even finish my entree, but it was so great. If I'm ever in the area again and want a fancy dinner, I... More

Visiting Foti's continues to be a wonderful experience. Most of us chose from the autumnal specials and they did not disappoint. Main dishes that night included a pork shank and a braised beef in red wine. Every dish for every course that arrived at our table was beautiful to look at, brimming with fresh flavors and taste. This was coupled... More

Having had excellent meals at Foti's in the past, I was disappointed in my most recent visit. My vegetarian entree was pretty good, the soup was bland, and, sadly, the service was just okay. New staff, I think. This is not an inexpensive restaurant. The restaurant is very attractive, warm, brick walls, dark furniture, subdued lighting.
