Good food, great service. Special birthday dinner and we felt it was a good choice. The food was good and the atmosphere romantic enough.

Perfectly cooked venison with just a light touch of sweet - so smooth is cut like butter. Service was friendly and accommodating.

We were lucky to get their last table early on a busy Friday night. The prix fixe pre-theater special was a great deal and very satisfying. Yummy bread and butter! Lobster bisque and delicious green salad are excellent starters. Beef sirloin tender and very rare. Excellent service. Eat here!

This place was wonderful! We knew it was going to be pricy so there was no shock there! The service was impeccable and the food was to die for.

Heard a lot about this place so I tried it. Food was ok, not great. Plan on paying a bit more for "upscale" French gourmet reputation. Wait person was not friendly at all. I would go down the mall to Bizou or Hamilton's as better alternative for date

On a visit from England we walked past the door of Fleurie one afternoon when it was closed and met the manager on his way in. He invited us to look around and we booked for that evening and were served a fantastic meal and superior to many we have eaten in France. The chef is a master working with... More

After a day-long workshop at UVA, my husband and I wanted to treat ourselves with a fine dining experience. Fleurie didn't disappoint. From the creamy and flavorful Amuse Bouche of salmon volauvent to my entree of succulent poached lobster, ingredients and their preparations were gourmet. My husband's duck was juicy and tender and flavorful. We thought the wine menu was... More

I was only in town for one night - a Monday night. I was looking for a nice local restaurant (definitely not a chain) to dine in. It was about 4pm and I wanted to make a reservation for 1 person anytime between 6pm-7pm. Since the Ivy Inn Restaurant appeared to be the top rated restaurant and I had nothing... More
