Closing due to Keswick Hall renovations. Hope to dine there again in its new incarnation. Its last evening, NYE, was wonderful.

Made reservations for Fossett's and was placed in the lounge- bar. A very poor Christmas experience.

With only six tables to serve, the service was slow and non-engaging. We attended a brunch with plated service. The omelets arrived cold and less than tasty. The coffee was served luke-warm. Our experience was less than satisfying

Unimpressed. Wilted salad. Mediocre service. Overpriced. Lacking and just not the same as it used to be. Regardless of the fact that the resort is shutting down next month for 15 months should not allow its reputation to be diminished. For readers - We dined for lunch in Villa Crawford, which is down the hall from Fossets, but Open Table only gives Fossets as the option to book a reservation.

Horrible service; very unprofessional. Served lukewarm coffee and waiter failed to place our order. He did not even recall taking it when we asked about length of time waiting and said, “Did you place the order with someone else?” No apology or attempt to accommodate so we left without breakfast. Previous visits have always been wonderful so very disappointed things have deteriorated so drastically!

Food was delicious. Service poor, the waitress was very nice but she never came to check on us often. No one ask if we would like additional drinks or desert. I have not eaten in a such a nice restaurant without a table cloth on the table.

After calling and adding an additional person to our party the day before, when we arrived no one was aware of the change and seemed dumb founded in accommodating us in doing so. It was an awkward situation. There were many open and open free tables so I do not understand why this would have been a problem.

We read all the reviews about Keswick Hall and Fossett's and couldn't wait to visit. My wife and I came away very disappointed considering the price point. The portions were small, not hot and quite frankly just OK. Service was almost nonexistent, we had to flag down the wait staff a couple of times.

The price you pay for a meal should reflect some level of service. Very disappointed.

My wife and I came to Fossett's at Keswick Estate for our anniversary and had an absolutely perfect evening. The food was terrific, the wait staff was attentive without being overbearing, the view over the newly re-designed golf course was gorgeous, and all of our questions about the menu were nicely answered. We cannot wait to return.
