This restaurant is permanently closed. Foster Harris House is pleased to have José De Brito as your Chef de Cuisine! Chef José was a James Beard Award semi-finalist for the Best Chef of the Mid-Atlantic region and dinner at the Foster Harris House unites the elements that inspire our Chef José's personal taste for farm to table culinary muse – fruits and vegetables from the rich soil of Rappahannock County, surprising flavors, bold splashes of color and family traditions – with each plate artfully composed to entice the eyes and the appetite.

We only serve a maximum of 10 dinners per night for our seating Thursday through Saturday at 7:00 PM . This ensures that each dish is made a la minute and to perfection.
• We serve a six-course gourmet dinner at $198 per couple.

Our culinary fare is matched by the personal attention to each guest by the Proprietors /Hosts Klaus and Gisele

Excellent hosts and food and beverage good. However, portions were minimal and food lacked a bit of depth. The cost point didn’t match the value.

The Foster Harris House was an incredible experience for my wife and me. The food was fabulous, each course meticulously prepared and presented with true conviction. The location had a lot of character and, by seating only 10-12 per night, provided a level of intimacy that greatly enhanced the quality of our evening.... it felt like dinner with friends. Above all though, was the warmth and welcoming nature of the hosts. They were among the most exceptional hosts I have ever encountered. They manage Foster Harris House with heart and it shows. Their warmth was transcendent and made us all feel special. I would give them and the Foster House my highest praise and would enthusiastically recommend them to all.
