Impeccable !

Drove with two friends up to Charlottesville to Dine at Fleurie it was well worth the one hour drive. This restaurant is simply elegant and I can see why its so popular. We had a reservation at 6:30 and it was filling up at that time, so I would imagine a reservation is a necessity. From the... read more

The food isn't what it should be. The service is great. The atmosphere is nice. Everything is as it should be at a fancy restaurant - except for the food. Last time I was there, we ordered the chef's menu. Usually at least three of the items would be "awesome" ... but we went 0 for 5. All were OK,... More

My wife and I dined at Fleurie while spending one night in Charlottesville. We were able to get in without a reservation. I was a bit skeptical at first, thinking the restaurant may be too focused on being trendy and "creative" rather than serving great food. Boy was I wrong. I've visited many fine dining establishments (including the French Laundry),... More

Even during Charlottesville's Restaurant Week, Fleurie maintains an extensive menu and their regular menu items, and their very personal and very professional service never varies – and the low fixed price is a good time to choose a special bottle for their great and growing wine list. This is Charlottesville’s palace of French cuisine, and the Chef is the king!

Impeccable service and inspired cuisine. Excellent wine list. Complimentary small dessert, even if you don't order one!

We experienced an incredibly wonderful evening at Fleurie. We did the per fixe menu which was exquisite! The setting was romantic and quiet. The wine that was recommended was terrific and within a price range we were comfortable. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. It was a bit like traveling to Paris without the air fare!

We just enjoyed our anniversary dinner at Fleurie this past Saturday. We have enjoyed many meals there over the years. The service is exceptional, with a large wait staff that see's to all you needs. The wine list is large, with something for everyone. Generous cocktails from a well stocked bar. The dinner menu is compact but very well thought... More

I can't say enough about this place. It pleased my snobbiest mother and my pickiest child. It was heaven. While the food was absolutely sublime it was the accommodating, friendly, professional, staff that just made it one of the best dining experiences I have had - ever! The hostess made sure we had a table to fit our family, manager... More

Fleurie has long been Charlottesville’s best, and amazingly it just keeps getting better. Their Tasting Menu was superb, with an incredible variety and portions just right. And unlike most Tasting Menus, the flavors build and complement as you move forward with each course . Their wine list has expanded again and is rich in variety, with consistently high quality and...
