We were not fans of the menu, but the French onion soup was good. My lamb chops were cooked well but I would have preferred other seasonings. My husband had steak frites. The steak was cold and overlooked. I preorder a birthday cake. The cake was dry and the filling was not what I ordered. It was beautifully iced and... More

With a 5 star rating and the beautiful Virginia countryside you would think that the service and food would be on par. There were six of us on the terrace after a day at the Keswick Horse Show. I arrived after the others and found that drinks had been ordered 40 minutes earlier, table was only set for 4, the... More

Villa Crawford is our neighborhood bar and restaurant. I have been going there for years and have always loved it. Since the new ownership took over last year this place has deteriorated! The folks that own the Jefferson in Richmond (which is a lovely place!) bought the property and some how achieved a Forbes 5 Star. The wait staff turns... More

While staying in Keswick Hall we took our two evening meals in Villa Crawford. This is an excellent restaurant in every respect from the quality and presentation of food provided to the skilled and personable waitstaff. It offers a casual, yet upscale environment in a setting overlooking the outdoor pool. The wine, spirits, and craft beer selections leave nothing to... More

Great lunches and bar and amazing views of the golf course and infinity pool. Their new wine cellar is a treat!

Risotto & other dishes seemed heavy. Very personable staff but our waiter repeatedly forgetful of tasks he offered to do.

We availed ourselves of vast quantities of mojitos and Bloody Marys from Villa Crawford over 2 days of lounging by Keswick's infiniti pool. Each was excellent (and effective).

Villa Crawford is the name of the original house at Keswick Hall and offers indoor and al fresco dining. The menu is casual and the food quite good, as is the service. A good place for lunch.

Terrific food, excellent service, great drinks. Always feel at home and well cared for. Food is sourced locally for the most part and prepared with care. Good vegetarian options and lovely local meats. Drinks are thoughtfully blended, and a great selection of liquor, wines and beers. A bit expensive, and portions are moderate, but very much with the money and... More
