Great food, the bar is a little slow

Delicious dinner with fresh, local food. I would have given it 5 stars but 2 of the 3 of us got our glasses of wine right away. Our 3rd diner companion waited and waited for his mixed drink. Not sure what that was all about. They were rolling out iPads for taking dinner orders that night, just a... read more

On a beautiful Friday evening in July, the Charlottesville pedestrian mall area was teeming with people. There were many restaurants from which to choose, and while we were looking at various restaurants' posted menus, we overheard a couple of people saying how wonderful Brookville Restaurant is. We went inside to discover this cute eatery for ourselves. Prices are extremely high,... More

This place is pants button-popping amazing! Firstly, the portions are pretty large and very satisfying. I've eaten here twice now on visits to Charlottesville, and I have always had leftover entrees. I've had the burger and my husband had the chicken and waffles. I can't say much about the c&w since he ate all of it before I could try... More

Saw mixed reviews on Yelp but we really liked this place. The building is historic-looking and we sat by a nice window facing the mall area. Our waitress was very friendly. We shared a delicious apple salad that was very unique. My husband loved his vegetarian dish and I really enjoyed the pulled pork/goat cheese/greens biscuit. Everything on the menu... More

We spent a pleasant early evening at the bar here. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The bartender had some delicious specials on her cocktail list. The decor is exposed brick and old wood, with comfortable seating. We sampled several of the talented chef/owner's creations, and we were amazed. Bacon and butter used in a clever sandwich, fresh apple slices... More

Brookville has created a wonderfully welcoming atmosphere. Lush interiors, exposed brick, slick leathers, dark woods, and burlap. Upscale, but casual and relaxed. Fantastic use of space. It was a visual and touch experience of contradictions. And it was beautifully done. If this review was solely regarding interior design, Brookville would easily have attained 5 stars. Unfortunately, the theme of contradictions... More

We went for New Year's Eve, our first visit, will be our last. We walked in and really liked the first room we walked into, the next room was a combination of rustic cute décor with cheap wall frames and photos that really took away from the overall appeal of the place. Our server at first seemed nice but became... More

My husband and i ate here on New Year's Eve and i have to say it was a bit of a dining disappointment. I'm predominantly vegetarian but will occasionally eat fish and seafood. We looked over their menu before making dinner reservations and it seemed like there would be several offerings that i would be able to eat. The night... More

Situated in a loft overlooking the downtown mall and looking right into the indoor skating rink, the room you arrive in after climbing the stairs is gorgeous - brick walls, hardwood floors, and a beautiful bar with open ceiling. Unfortunately, this is one of three best parts of the eatery. Food is so-so, not better than average. My vegetarian ragout... More
