Service was great and food was even better. My wife had the organic roasted carrots and I had the gyro. Both were delicious. The waiter suggested I try a watermelon sangria and it was really tasty. The creme brulee was out of this world. We will be going back soon. More...

We were on our way back from Lake Anna at about 9:00 PM Sat night. Hadn't eaten dinner. Knew Culpepper was our best option and stopped in to Foti's. Maybe the best decision of the summer. The food was exquisite. The staff was welcoming, attentive and well informed. We were the last to leave but never once felt rushed. In fact, Chef Frank came out and delighted us with us stories about how the restaurant got it's start and how it's evolved over the years. We can't recommend Foti's enough! We will certainly be back again and again. More...

Circumstances found us in Culpeper a summer mid-week 3pm, hungry, thirsty and eager for solutions for both. Foti's is an accidental gem. A perfectly refined blend of stellar service and detailed cookery; daring, subtle and we'll worth a visit.Only after the fact, I discovered this chef's provenance and his experience shows. More...

Cannot recommend this place enough--if you're in the area make sure to stop in. The food is amazing, the staff can't do enough for you and the portions are the perfect size to fill you up, but not leave you feeling stuffed to the point of sickness. I go as often as I can, which is never often enough. More...

Foti's was fantastic! I wish I had taken photos of the food because thay was a treat in and of itself but what really seals the deal with this place is their service. My brother graduated with his Masters today and we were trying to find a place that caters GF as he has a severe gluten allergy. We were going with a generic chain that we know he can eat at and then this place showed up in a search. We called to let them know a party of 10 was en route from Farmville and wanted to find out when they close. The gentleman we spoke with said he didn't think that would be an issue but he would check with the head chef who is also the owner if we were willing to call back in a little while since they were going through dinner rush. Shortly after getting off the phone we realized some of us wouldn't arrive until 9:45pm and they close at 9:00 so we called back to say thanks but we would find another place realizing how late that would put them and not wanting to be an inconvenience. The owner picked up and asked when we would be able to come and after telling him it would be close to 9:45 before everyone was there he said "If you will come we will stay open for you." BEST... DECISION... EVER! The food was fantastic, service was excellent, and everyone was just wonderful. With appetizers, entrees, and dessert (where they surprised my brother with "Congratulations!" written in chocolate with his GF dessert) we didn't leave until midnight. We met the Owner and could not thank him and his staff enough. It made a special day so much more. We will be back for sure! More...

We enjoyed such a wonderful Mother's Day brunch today. The menu offerred many delectable choices - something for everyone - that we had a difficult time making only one selection for each course. The grilled asparagus with poached egg and hollandaise was a new dish for me and so delicious. The salmon and vegetables entree was also yummy. But the highlight of the meal for me was the dessert - Crispy Pavlova!! Another first - I so enjoyed the meringue with tangy lemon curd, whipped cream, and berries. Such a light and delectable dessert - it was an absolutely perfect ending to an awesome celebratory meal. Thank you so much for making our meal today so wonderful! More...

Curtis, one of the line cooks also came out and checked on my party and I to ensure our satisfaction! What a treat. We will certainly be back. Every detail was amazing! Hats off to Fotis! More...

We stopped in Culpepper on our way home from Charlottesville and lucked upon Foti's. For such a small town this was a fantastic establishment. Aside for a really good drink menu they had an exceptionally diverse menu that was well executed. Particularly good was the garlic and herb baked snails. After living in Europe for 16 years and spending much time in France I'm always looking for good snails, and these didn't disappoint. It was so good in fact that we asked the waitress how the chef made the sauce and she came back with detailed steps :) It's nice because they have something on their menu for everyone; from foodies to picky eaters. The staff was extremely friendly and the prices were better than fair. If traveling through the area we'd certainly stop again. More...

This is Culpeper's best restaurant. I also like Grassroots. Both eateries serve organic fare sourced locally, very fresh and delicious. Locals who haven't travelled much prefer About Thyme because they don't know any better. Soft over cooked pasta, way salty soup...NO. At Foti's, everything is prepped to perfection, and no wonder; the chef cut his teeth for 5 years at the Inn at Little WAshington where a meal costs 7 times more. I'm sure the Inn misses Foti, a world class talent. Eating at Foti"s is always a highlight of my frequent trips east. I'm delighted also that they now have more vegetarian options than before. (Hint for chef Foti: stay open on Monday nights when your biggest 2 competitors are closed.) More...

I went here last night and was absolutely thrilled with everything about the experience. Foti's has always been my favorite restaurant in Culpeper and that is saying something because Culpeper is known for its wonderful restaurants. The blue cheese dressing on the wedge salad was incredible. I also had a chicken noodle type soup that had a broth like nothing I have ever tasted. Perfection. For an entree I had curry roasted cauliflower and vegetables with melted cheese and egg. For dessert I had the bread pudding with caramel sauce served with ice cream. Everything was delectable. I wanted to turn the clock back and start over! Customer service was top notch. Sasha was our server and she was excellent. My boyfriend asked to substitute a mango in his salad with avocado and it was done. Every little detail was attended to. After dinner we wanted coffee and I asked for raw sugar and they brought out raw sugar in chunk form which was so cool! We were made to feel very appreciated and will most certainly return. More...

This place has a great menu, but has only one menu item that has me returning on a regular basis. And that is the FOTIS BURGER. It's not that I cant stray away. This hamburger isn't jjust ANY ordinary burger. No. Any ordinary burger in culpeper would be slapped together with two soggy gluten buns and have called it a day. But this master piece is not only cooked to order just how you like it, but it's bathed in delicious Worcester sauce, then placed together with roasted fork-tender pork belly, then topped with shaved Tallegio cheese, house made garlic solo, crisp lettuce, ruby red tomato slices and fresh onion ( though, I order mine caramelized, definitely a must). And you couldn't just get a burger without fries! Oh, no ma'am/sir. Their fries are delicious shoe string fries paired with their own, house made ketchup/catsup, whatever you call it, its liquid gold! More...

TL;DR - Excellent food, excellent staff, but small portions and an odd atmospherePortions: When my waitress asked if I wanted a side salad or a "normal" salad, I said 'normal'. I then received what would be considered a side salad or companion salad at other restaurants. I think the side salad was going to be 3 pieces of spinach and a tomato! (Kidding.) The roasted beet & pita sandwich was excellent, and was described as a "smallish entree". This was accurate, in my opinion. My idea of portion size may be skewed by other restaurants giving huge portions, though.Atmosphere: it feels very high-end with the decor and waitstaff professionalism, but customers come in in jeans and t-shirts and the music is classic rock. I don't have a problem with any of this, it just felt a little weird somehow. Incongruous is the word I"d use if I was a thesaurus.Overall, I'd come back here again! Due to the cost I doubt I'd become a regular, but the menu has many, many things I would love to try. It's a shame I'm only visiting the area! More...

1st time Saturday, loved the superb flavors of entrees that we went back Sunday. Started with the duck wontons, they can stand on there own in taste and how it was prepaired but when you add the sauce it was served with, this appetizer is worth coming back just for the Wontons....btw, we purchased a pint to go of the sauce to take home...... awesome on cooked spinach with bacon!!!!!!! For our entrées, we ordered the Sea Bass and Beef Tenderloin. I do not have to go out on a limb to say they were the best I ever had! As a person to eat at restaurants all over the US, have no reservation suggesting it was the Best Ever. During our last participation of Restaurant Week in Washington DC, our previous favorite was Founding Farmers but this place gets the HOME RUN!!!!. The Sea Bass was cooked to perfection and offered a flavor for those savory palettes that in my opinion is the Best Sea Bass Ever. It was flaky and served at the right temperature. The vegetables served with it, along with the presentation, were a perfect match. The Beef Tenderloin was the 2nd entrée, was also SUPERB!!!!!, cooked a perfect medium rare with again flavors out of this world, was paired perfectly. Presentation on a large plate with just the right portion made this entrée exceeding the best anywhere. The pricing was fair and not pushing the pocket book with us wanting to tip more than our usual 20%. We give this place 6 stars if they were available. Do yourself a favor and stop by for a bite......I know it will become your favorite after the 1st seating. Foti's is a gem in Culpeper!!!!!!. More...

Very nice place to have a good lunch. I had what I recollect was a fancy fish sandwich (possibly cod) and my colleague had an eggplant dish. Both excellent.Staff was super friendly, and service was excellent. We sat at a table in the front window, so it was also a great place to people watch during the lunch hour. Nice place to have a good lunch. Great service. Good food. More...

Cute little restaurant. We sat outside. Just 2 of us so small table was fine. Our server Michael was friendly and helpful but not in the annoying hovering server-way. The food was delicious. We had Greek nachos and also grilled cheese w/roasted pork sandwich. Everything was so good. I just wish we'd saved room for dessert. Prices were a bit on pricey side but worth it. A great place for a special meal or to treat yourself. More...

We are still talking about how much we enjoyed Foti's! Linda had the spinach salad with warm vinaigrette...she kept saying it could've been the whole meal because it was so good. Two of us had the Manchego, orange and pear salad...delicious! For entrees, two had the sea bass and said 'you know the bass will be wonderful in a place like this, but the vegetables it was served on were fantastic!' I had the lamb special and couldn't believe how tender it was! Doug had the mushroom raviolis and is ready to return to get It again. The final two ordered the grilled New York strip steaks. Just by presentation I wanted to grab their plates! They didn't talk a lit--- they were too busy savoring each bite! The atmosphere was fun, Ron took great care of us--attentive but not bothersome. He answered all our questions and special requests. The desserts looked wonderful ..i wanted just fruit and they brought me a lovely, just for me, assortment. More...

We are already planning trip back just for this food! Amazing menu! Michael took fabulous care of us and Alexander made us feel we had picked the right place. Great staff! Bill had the Restaurant Week special and I had the Sea Bass and we purred throughout the dinner. I also appreciate a restaurant that has a pastry chef - I had the very creative Rocky Road Crème Brulee for dessert – WONDERFUL! More...

I'm super excited to say that I met the chef, his wife and their daughter; the hostess and our waiter (ask for David) were all amazing!!! BEST dining experience EVER and I can't wait to go back tonight with Austin!!!! More...

Today is the end of my 4th week on the Eat Fat, Get Thin diet (better...'life change'). I've lost 15 pounds and feel good. We struggle a little when eating out. The real reason for this post is to share a Culpepper restaurant with the Cville locals. Recently we had an early dinner there and the options for glutten-free, sugar-free were plentiful. I had the Crispy Duck Breast and Donna had the Salmon. They were happy to adjust the menu for us and did it with a smile. Both were delicious. We will be back! More...

Okay where do I start. Just a normal looking restaurant and bar combo from the outside. But then you are drawn inside by the sound of people chatting it up and laughing. So stick your head inside and you hear " Welcome and come in". Once you make that step there is no going back. Be prepared for a meal that will leave a lingering taste of fine spices and top end meat and veggies. Chef Frank will step out to great you. Now do not confuse him for a Rapidan pirate for you will be mistaken. You have just met one of the finest chefs in the area if not the best. His deserts are some thing to save room for also. If you are inclined to take your meal at the bar, as I do often then you will meet Matt. Whom is the great grandson of General Mark Clark and the finest mixologist and conversationalist that I have ever met. His cocktails are beyond comparison. His list goes back to and before prohibition and some lost to time. Worth sitting at the bar. Then there is Grant. The one who is going to make you laugh from all his mishaps in life. Never a dull moment. So if you are a fast food type of person or not interested in good conversation and some laughs then this is not the place for you. But if you are then come in and be welcome. You will find me at the bar eating a fine meal with a fine craft beer. Just look for the 6' 5" retired firefighter (sometimes in a Western hat) enjoying life with his wife, Matt, Grant and sometimes the Rapidan Pirate owner and operator Frank. CHEERS PARD ! More...

All things considered, I have to give 5 stars to the bangers and mash I had the other day. Service was friendly and prompt. The decor, not incredible, but I'm not visiting an art gallery, I'm getting fed. I got this special (which belongs on the permanent menu) because I reflexively say yes to English pub food, and I was extremely happy with it. The beer they served from down the street at Beer Hound was the most refreshing and unpretentious lager I've seen from a microbrewery, but that's another story. For this purpose, it paired well with a grilled pork sausage on a terribly hot day. Will be coming back to eat what I intended to eat before they started enumerating their specials. More...
