Lovely restaurant in the Keswick Hall resort. Great weekend getaway. Very good French & American food with excellent service in a delightful setting overlooking the picturesque golf course. Have been going for many years and never ceases to impress.

We were sitting outside on the terrace in a very comfortable setting. We had a beautiful view of the golf course. The sommelier helped us select a wonderful bottle of champagne. We were able to taste the champagne offered by the glass out of a new bottle which she opened for us! We selected the Nicolas Feuilatte. Excellent! We decided... More

We utilized the occasion of our 25th wedding anniversary to experience Fossett's for the first time, and we're not disappointed. The dining room is elegant, and offers a scenic view of the golf course. The service was among the very best we've experienced in the area; no fewer than five different staff members visited our table and attended to our... More

We recently visited Fossett's for the first time and were very pleased with the service and the meal. We had a table next to a floor to ceiling window with expansive view of the grounds and golf course. A great place for a special meal.

We come to the Charlottesville several times a year to visit family, and we always look forward to lunch at Keswick Hall. Today we enthusiastically brought friends who are exploring retiring here. Our meal began with a tray of coffee and iced tea spilled on our guests. The service was beyond disappointing, taking 3 hours (!) for us to have... More

The views are lovely and the staff is friendly and helpful. Some are inexperienced while others are seasoned professionals. Nice menu items and good wine list. We had two wonderful dinners here. We were surprised that tables were not cleared. Dirty dishes sat for over an hour at nearby tables after guests left. The breakfast menu is very good but... More

We went here on what was probably the most beautiful night I've experienced in Virginia since moving here in 2011. The view was great from the outside patio, although the chairs sit really low so I couldn't actually see much of the view from the table. Our server was attentive at first however at the end when we were trying... More

My review is based on only two visits; one about six years ago, and one last week. Six years ago==flawless. And the place is so well appointed--comfortable, great view, quiet, and a setting that's worth the trip. And all that hasn't changed--but on our recent visit, the service was weak and the food ok. We weren't in a hurry, but... More
