Beautiful view, gourmet meal, wonderful service! Celebrating my birthday, our waiter brought us an "on the house" delicious appetizer that we loved, and a nice "Happy Birthday" dessert at the end!

We dined at Fossett's while staying at Keswick Hall both for dinner and a breakfast. The food was quite good. I highly recommend it for breakfast as it is a light, airy space with great views. Nice wine list. The service was a little too solicitous but it is a small price to pay for several nice meals.

The food was terrific. The decor is elegant, the ambience and view is the prettiest in Charlottesville. We enjoyed the Shrimp and Grits and the Sweet Potato Bisque, the Halibut and Dry-aged Beef Short Ribs followed with an Eggnog Bavarian and the deconstructed Peanut Butter Banana Cream Pie The music was a sophisticated easy jazz and the service was attentive,...

We had been here before for a very satisfactory birthday dinner and decided to return. We could not have been more disappointed by the food. Two of us selected a succotash appetizer that was dry, underseasoned, and the legumes were undercooked. The Caesar salad was undistinguished. The scallop entree was over-salted and served not hot enough. The "risotto" entree was... More

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.
