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.

Delicious food & great variety depending on your wallet and taste

Went here after reading other reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed!! We enjoyed a wonton appetizer and then the Lamb Tangine for dinner. It was excellent - a perfect combination of textures and flavors. Our waiter recommended a great bottle of wine that complimented our food perfectly. We look forward to returning.

I haved lived in Culpeper for the last 6 years and have never had the availability to visit this restaurant until last night. I had previously known the owners through my work and always said that I would come visit. My family and I went there for dinner and the palate was absolutely fantastic. I had not had authentic Greek... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant's name online while searching for a restaurant in the area for Valentines Day weekend. The reviews looked good, so we decided to try it out. Wow! We were so impressed. Very nice ambience, and the food was absolutely delicious. We plan to go back.

We have been to Foti's three times now and found it very good each time. We expected to find them next to the suites at 249 but the moved down the street on Mother's Day. Would have been nice to know since the reservations were made before Mother's day. Still the best food in the area.

My friends had told me about this place, but after two fine nights of dining at Its About Thyme and Copper Fish I was skeptical that Culpeper could deliver a Triple Crown experience. With deference to American Pharoah, Foti's came through. From the Beet and Goat Cheese appetizer to the Lamb Ragout, it was amazing. I beat my friends to... More

We have been followers of Foti,s for sometime. The "new" restaurant at another location is still good but the atmosphere is not the same. We prefer the old Foti,s but understand why they moved and changed their imagine...it's what people want these days. The food and service are still first rate even though many customers may not appreciate it. We... More

We have eaten here several times since their move "up" Davis street. Their food has remained at an extremely high level. Frank continues to "improve" his dishes and each change seems to work wonders. The roasted tomato under the calamari is sublime. Service continues to be very good. While the ambiance is different it now feels more lively and playful... More

Traveling with my girlfriends, we stopped in at Foti's for lunch. There were no tables available so we happily sat at the bar. We had a great gyro lunch...simply delicious. Very friendly service and ambience. We all agreed we would eat here again.
