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

Savour is on 29, in town, not where most of Charlottesville's many great restaurants are. It took a friend's insistence to get us there, and we have been several times. The food is eclectic, extremely well prepared, and the presentations are the best in Charlottesville. They have a very nice 3 course prix fixe option year round. Food and value... More

Both lunch and dinner were excellent meals. Lunch was a group of 12 and they were patient and agreed to give us separate checks and let us sit and chat for nearly 2 hours without any pressure to leave. My husband and I then had a delicious and very romantic dinner. The presentation was outstanding (photo op for fb). Desert... More

I love the food at Savour. My favorite app is the scallop dish. My favorite main dish is the stuffed pork chop. My favorite dessert is an apple tart. The meringue is beautiful and one of my nieces favorites. Make sure you go when the chef owner is there. The food is better, the plating is much better and the... More

The food was surprising good, well prepared, and beautifully presented. The wine list is also varied and includes a very nice selection of Spanish regional wines other than Riojas and Riberas.

Chef/owner does a fabulous job of cooking! The prices are also very reasonable. Don/t know how he does it. Outside of restaurant does not have much curb appeal but interior is very warm and cozy. Have also had lunch here and it is excellent. Will definitely return.
