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 made an unexpected trip to Foti's today. It was our first time. We lived it. I started off with the brie cheese. I loved it. I chose the flat iron steak and it was scrumptious! The wait staff was atrentive. It was Super Bowl Sunday and it wasn't busy. But I have never had a waiter visit my table... More

We have eaten here twice since moving to the area in March. Both times we got the same thing since both of our meals were fantastic. The service was excellent with prompt attention. We love this place!!!

We drove to Culpeper to get lunch and walk around the town. We saw several restaurants that seemed interesting and settled on Foti's. We were seated after several minutes of standing at the bar. We ordered a romaine salad and pizza special and informed the waiter that we would be sharing. We also ordered mixed drinks for each. Drinks were... More

When the front door opens in the cooler months everyone feels the cool air. Small and quaint and tables are close to each other. The food is delicious.

We had a delightful meal with family and friends at Foti's, a restaurant started by Frank & Sue Maragos in 2005 in downtown Culpeper, 75 miles from Washington, DC. The menu was innovative and because we were seven, we had the chance to sample its varied menu: venison, flank steak, calamari and Greek hors-d'oeuvres, with some all American fare: mashed... More

A tiny restaurant that I have been to several times. The have moved up Davis street from their former space in hopes of better exposure. The menu is spartan, but what they do they do well. You are sure to find something to delight. The food is not so crazy avant garde that you have to wonder what parts of... More

The menu is eclectic - a variety of foods you wouldn't expect to find in a small town like Culpeper. The menu appears to change frequently. My wife had the Pan Seared Salmon and I had the Grilled Pork Ribeye - both were very good. Service was very attentive. We've agreed it deserves another visit!

We discovered this place while Christmas shopping in Culpeper and thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. I had an amazing pork belly burger topped with Talleggio cheese and onions with a heaping "bowl" of fries. My vegetarian dining companion had the roasted beet and apple sandwich with a yummy (I tasted it!) pomegranate molasses dressing. The young waiter was entertaining and efficient,... More
