“Very nice experience and very good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Was quite curious as to what to expect after reading some of the reviews but am very happy to report that the owner, service, and food were all terrific and it turned out to be a fantastic evening at Savour. We had a group of 9 people and were personally met by the owner at our table and he was extremely pleasant and engaging. Service was absolutely fantastic and the abundant food was also fantastic. I'm not going to say it was cheap here as it wasn't but for what we received, the price was reasonable. From our visit and experience, would highly recommend and already have.

“The food and service were a disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

The host was also our server and had as little interaction as possible. After bringing our food there was no follow up. We had to go to the register to ask for additional items. I also had to go to the host stand to pay as we never received our bill. The food was very bad the quiche was greasy with a soggy base and stale crepe on the outside. The salad was wilted. The chicken salad was extremely over seasoned. The pasta was mushy and the soup was bland and slimy. The bread was fresh and warm

“Very Good Restaurant in Charlottesville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

My wife and I took a special friend to dinner at Savour on February 13. We all had a wonderful meal. Savour has a very complete menu. There is something for everyone, we all had seafood, which was very very enjoyable. Great wait staff. I highly recommend Savour for either a special dinner or just casual dining. They are also open for lunch.

“Nice lunch but expected more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Attended a business lunch for 6 people. The decor was very nice and the service impeccable. The food was good and reasonably priced, however, it wasn't anything special or different. The dishes ordered were meatloaf, shrimp and scallops, quiche, and the chicken salad. The presentation was a bit bland - food just plopped onto the plates. The chicken salad was the chicken, candied pecans, cranberries, broiled red onion and gorgonzola placed on top of a bowl of lettuce. The person ordering it assumed the ingredients were mixed together as a traditional chicken salad since the menu didn't mention lettuce. After reading other reviews I expected to be blown away - but my experience was typical of most luncheon places in Charlottesville.

“A 5 star restauarant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Friendly, competent and unintrusive service with exquisite presentation and exceptional food!!!!!!!
Have traveled the world and this restaurant's presentation is among the best. Just visited the 2nd time this month and both visits coconfirm the above.
