“Solo Diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

I was solo yet the wait staff treated me like a queen. Lovely service, a beautiful flounder, and Pouilly Fuisse. The menu was very interesting, the wine list is extraordinary, and the views are sublime

“The best brunch in the Charlottesville area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

The service is impeccable (which is rare in a college town). It's a little out of the way, but the food is worth it. Most expensive brunch in town, but still cheap compared to NYC

“Beautiful restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

Beautiful location, meal was very good....foie gras, bison, crabmeat, chicken all exceptional. The service was a little slow but dining outside on the patio overlooking the golf course/Virginia hills was amazing and made up for lacking service. The property was in a beautiful setting in the area of Charlottesville, VA. if we are ever in the area we would definitely return.

“Perfect anniversary dinner celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Fossett's is in Keswick Hall, part of Keswick Country Club. The ediface is Italiante in design. We were warmly welcomed at the door, shown to our reserved table swiftly. Just about everything on the menu looked delectable. We loved everything we had, including our champagne toast and local Virginia Wine. We felt very welcome, the view was unparalleled and over the experience was delightful. It is very expensive.

“Pleasant new find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

We had a wonderful start to our wkd in C'ville by having dinner at Fossett's. Everything was excellent! Beautiful views ( we were lucky to enjoy the blue moon from there). A well trained staff, warm and welcoming. The food was delicious and it was so nice to see that they use local products. I had their chilled vidalia onion bisque which I would normally be afraid to try cold bisque but it was wonderful. Their wild caught salmon w/ delicious parsnip puree dish was delicious. My husband had the bison ribeye and was delighted that it was cooked to order and flavor was perfect. We ordered the vanilla panna cotta and chocolate dessert w/ black cherries for our desserts and they were excellent. We were happy with our visit and look forward to going back.
