We happened upon this place as we were wandering in search of a place to eat. It looked charming, and they had a lovely terrace outside. So after going somewhere else for drinks, we came back. We were not disappointed. The menu is French-based but featuring locally-sourced ingredients. our tomato-shrimp starter was so simple but delicious. DH's lamb was just... More

wonderful supper - at our table we started with a wonderful shrimp and heirloom tomato starter then had the lamb, the beef, and the poached lobster - really all spectacular. two of us had chocolate soufflé for dessert, one had the strawberry and rhubarb - also wonderful. service was 5-star as well. will definitely dine there again.

Sitting on the deck enjoying the tasting menu with wine pairings at Fleurie is a definite special occasion worthy celebration. The price is remarkably reasonable ($135), the food generally excellent, the seats comfortable (w/ heat lamp if need be), and the service is polished without being pretentious. In winter, the inside is charming, warm and inviting. The butter poached lobster... More

I enjoy dinner on the downtown mall before the Paramount theater. The pre-theater menu at the Fleurie restaurant is really delicious and a good value. Our server, Chris, took great care of us. Dinner started with an amuse bouche of three beet preparations and then the most wonderful Lobster Bisque with Tarragon. We had called to find out what was... More

Although I've lived in Cville many years, this was my first trip to Fleurie. I had fish which was perfectly cooked and very fresh. Presentation was top notch. Amazing flavors. Minor comment- wish there was a bit more variety in apps/entrees. BUT- the desserts were the best I've had in town. I had the pear tart- very fresh,not too sweet,... More

Fleurie Restaurant is certainly the best French restaurant in Charlottesville. My husband and I have had a very pleasant dinner in French style. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly and the meal was served at the traditional French pace. I had a lobster bisque and sweetbreads while my husband enjoyed a lamb dish. The selection of wines including local... More

I have food allergies-garlic and onions-and always let a restaurant know in advance-sometimes this works, and sometimes it doesn't. At Fleurie it not only worked but it was amazing! The chef had some suggestions and I said "whatever he thought best" and his best was incredible. I had a most delightful evening with delicious food and for once-didn't feel cheated... More

Fleurie is a small gem tucked into the side of the Charlottesville downtown mall. Chef Brian produces remarkable French cuisine dishes within a farm to table perspective using the many wonderful sources in the nearby Shenandoah Valley and mid Virginia. We recently celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary there. He has several standing menu items such as his poached lobster, risottos,... More

What a treat! We had the tasting menu and all the dishes were well prepared and tasted fabulous. I absolutely loved that the wine pairing is done to order. I discussed my likes and dislikes with my waiter and he tailored the choices to me. He offered me some new things, chatted about the wines, and found me some excellent... More
