Finally made it here

I have lived in the area for some time, and FINALLY went to Fleurie for a special occasion. It lived up to everything I had heard - fantastic wine, food, and service. Everything was perfect. I barely had room for dessert after all the courses & special treats, but I think the chocolate cake may... read more

We heard from many friends how Fleurie was the place to go to in Charlottesville but were disappointed with the food and wine. Our white Sancerre was served at room temperature not close to being chilled, and the ( expensive) Rioja was barely palatable. My husband's shrimp risotto was very rich, and the foie gras I ordered turned out to... More

I choose Fleurie for special occasions because I know everything will be perfect. Now that they have a new general manager and sommelier, it's really gone to the next level. We were quickly seated at a lovely table, gifted refreshing aperitifs, surprised by a personalized menu, and wowed with incredible food and drinks. It couldn't have been more perfect. I... More

I try to go to this restaurant whenever I am in Charlottesville, and I have never been disappointed. Okay - once I was -- but that was because they did not have sweetbreads on the menu that day; nothing to to with quality or service. Most recently a Thursday night; the place was completely full and there was a large... More

I went to this place during a visit with my parents, actually on Valentine's Day. We were able to get a reservation--we are not from the area and ended up having trouble finding it since it's in an outdoor mall area (much prettier than it sounds), and they were very accommodating in holding our reservation for us. I enjoyed the... More

Thank you, Trip Advisor, for helping us find this charming restaurant! We had a lovely meal in this charming location. The chef-owner takes great pride in his preparations (nice that he sources locally!) and presentations. We enjoyed the most attentive and gracious service. We heartily recommend this place!

First visit but not the last. Loved everything about Fleurie. Extremely professional staff from the moment you enter until they assist you with a coat as you leave. The wait staff was superb: welcoming, knowledgeable, and accommodating. We had an issue with a bottle of wine...thought it tasted odd and smelled musty. The waitress was terrific in how she handled... More

My husband and I and another couple went on a Thursday night during restaurant week. We had early reservations and were actually the first diners there. Over the course of the next hour the restaurant filled up. We had never been to this restaurant before which is why we decided to go during restaurant week. A word to the wise... More

My wife and I have been to this restaurant several times, and almost always, the food is superb. On this particular occasion, we went during Restaurant Week, and the restaurant was packed. I fear that this diminished the quality of the service somewhat. The food was still extremely good. My wife particularly liked the sweetbreads. I had an excellent piece... More

It was a cold night until I walked into the restaurant where it was warm and inviting. The Service and food was excellent. It is a small restaurant but the service was large.
