However many times we return to Fotis we can always count on some new flavor even in something we have eaten before.Fotis is a wizard at discovering new flavor combinations and pleasant presentations.

Everything on the menu is excellent. Far more impressive is Chef Frank's ability and willingness to adjust any dish to what you need or desire, and to make something not on the menu. When my wife was recovering from illness, he would concoct delicious meals based on her dietary constraints! Service is best around by a long shot, and restaurant... More

I had lunch with three friends at Foti's Restaurant today and it was fantastic! I'd heard of this restaurant but never had an opportunity to visit it. Well, I loved it! I will certainly go again. I had one of the daily specials, grilled asparagus on a salad with a poached egg nestled on top. One of the ladies had... More

On our way home stopped for lunch and walked trough the store. The turkey & blue cheese was excellent. Had the fried falafel for the first time. Would recommend this also.

A friend who lives in the town recommended Foti's as the best restaurant in Culpeper. We made dinner reservations and were looking forward to something special. Our experience was good, but not special. My wife ordered a chicken special, and I ordered mushroom ravioli with seasonal vegetables. Both were filling, but not very flavorful. The wine selection by the glass... More

My first several dining experiences were amazing but my last visit felt like the chef was calling the cooking in. I actually asked if they had a new chef. My fish was dry and tasteless and the sides tasted days old. I've not been back because for the cost there are more dining options in Culpeper

We came into town at 500 on Sunday. EVERYTHING was closed. We were so glad we found this place. My husband and I had the New York strip with assorted veggies (cauliflower, zucchini, butter nut squash and spinach) with hash browns. It was excellent. Our 7 year old had the pasta with creamy cheese sauce. My husband and I said... More

Had one of the best mid-day meals of my life here! The chef was evidently Sous-chef at a the best restaurant in DC, and it showed!

We had the lamb kabobs and the tenderloin. Very nice glass of wine each and dessert, a strawberry tart topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. One of the better meals we've had in Culpeper.

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.
