We enjoyed eating at Savour many times in the past. Unfortunately they recently closed the doors and it's now an Indian Restaurant.

A hidden treasure. It doesnt appear to be much from the outside but once you enter it is a first class experience. My father in law is a self confessed "food snob" who has lived in cville for 50 years. He summed it up by saying it was the best dining experience he has had in cville.

This closed 2 days ago. Will be replaced by another Indian restaurant. Chef tried for gourmet. A little overkill in some spices. Good wine selection though.

Savour has supurb food, wines and presentation. Over the past years it has maintained a fabulous quality of fresh ingredients, and beautiful artful designs, and a myriad of tastes and textures. You will love the wine list as well! Great price for beautiful, tasteful fare....

Amazing Food, Artistic Presentation, Beautiful Dinning Room, and wonderful waitstaff awaits you at Savour! Do not miss the chance to dine here. You will not regret it. My husband I had dinner here on a Thursday evening and it was divine! My only negative is how much food I consumed. It was so good that I almost licked the plate.... More

My wife and I have been to Savour multiple times. The menu has only had minor variations. However, they do have nightly specials. We celebrated her birthday during this visit. We both had the 3 for $ 33 special (appetizer, main course, and dessert). The presentation and flavor of the food is quite good. The desserts are a masterpiece and... More

Savour is a standby for a pleasant meal. The menu, however, never varies, so after a few visits you probably should take a break and go elsewhere. The desserts are delicious and artistic confections. Be sure to leave room.

Quite possibly the most pretentious and over rated "restaurant" in Charlottesville. Simply can not say anything positive. Bland food, horrible service, fast-food location. Please do not be influenced by all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. Do yourself a favor and explore other wonderful options in our community. Enough said.

Visited Charlottesville, Va and Monticello, as out of towners we planned our 1 night stay and anniversary dinner. The reviews for Savour and the menu looked exactly what we were trying to find. The 3 course meal ($33) selection is excellent. We enjoyed the ahi tuna starter and had rack of lamb and duck for entrees. The desserts were fabulous.... More
