We dined at Fleurie prior to a performance of the opera "Susannah" at the nearby Paramount Theater. We decided to try the restaurant's "pre-theater menu", a limited-selection fixed-price three course meal for $35 available before 6:30 PM. (The selections on this menu appear on the regular menu as well.) The entire experience was wonderful, and the staff went above and... More

Had dinner here last week and the food, the wine, and the service consistently over deliver. This restaurant is on par with Michelin-Star level dining. I went on date night but I've also taken clients here in the past. Try the lobster bisque, the foie gras, anything that is fresh from the chef's garden, and save room for dessert. The... More

There is no other restaurant in town (IMHO) that can match Fleurie for sheer excellence of presentation, beautifully prepared and cooked meals, and elegance of surroundings. It is more expensive than is comfortable for going very often, but is the go-to place for a superb evening to remember.

I'd just arrived in Charlottesville (a city I'd never been to before) after a three hour drive from Baltimore to take my 14 year old daughter to a Vampire Weekend concert and had three hours to kill. It was around 6pm and I was feeling peckish. I'm a picky vegetarian who occasionally eats fish but love French style cooking, music,... More

Our party of 4 had a wonderful meal at Fleurie. Our service was excellent, the wine list was very good, and the food was delicious. It's always nice to see the owner on site making sure everything is done properly. It's one of the few fine dining restaurants in Charlottesville, and a restaurant that one would be proud to bring...

Fleurie has been our Charlottesville favorite for years, and when we thought it couldn't get any better, they surprised us again! Eight of us had a truly extraordinary dinner. All are frequent travelers, several internationally, and we were there for a friends reunion - but the food took center stage again! New menu items and old favorites all were exceptional,... More

The service, atmosphere, attitude and especially food was marvelous! We (are semi-locals and) cannot wait to return. The scallops, the mushrooms, the bisque the wine, ETC. We would recommend Fleurie unreservedly to ANYONE with a family, business dinner, hot date, jones-for-divine-yet-mellow-dining within 100 miles or anyone else really. We cannot wait to return! Many thanks for a memorable Wednesday!

This place is incredible! In town for business and Hamilton's was closed for a private event, thank god.... Ate here instead; let me just say that I've paid 3x as much for meals 1/3rd as good. I won't tell you what I ate, so as not to influence your course selections but everything was fabulous... Even down to the bread!... More

I come here frequently; sometimes for special family occasions, sometimes to catch up with my sisters, and especially for a romantic dinner with my husband. It's one of my favorite restaurants in Charlottesville. This restaurant has very elegant decor. You feel comfortable, yet fancy. It's a cordial atmosphere for business catch-up, an intimate setting for family gatherings, but it's also... More

Our younger son is a UVA alum and has been telling us for a few years to try Fleurie for a special dining experience. When restaurant week fell during our anniversary, we jumped at the chance. Fleurie offered a three-course menu, with a nice variety of choices, for $36. We arrived on time for our 8:30 reservation and were seated... More
