Our room at Keswick Hall included Breakfast in Fossett's. I don't know which was better: The service, the food, or the view! The orange juice was fresh, the coffee was perfect with a continuous pore, fresh berries and fruits, steel oatmeal, farm eggs, and pancakes. During our two day stay this was the highlight of our stay. I can only... More

Fossett's is an exceptional place to take that special lady. The food is exceptional and the service is first rate. The main dining room is very nice and the connecting rooms are interesting as well. I would suggest a round of billards in the billard room followed by a drink on the terrace before dinner. The terrace offers great views... More

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.
