We called the restaurant to place a curbside pickup order for 4 entrees and 4 desserts. We took 30 minutes to make the order because the background noise from the restaurant was so bad the order taker could not hear us on the phone. Also,...she was unfamiliar with the menu and had trouble understanding we wanted to substitute a vegetable elsewhere on the menu for the one that came with a meal. We ordered two Southern Fried Chicken dinners for $19 each. We also ordered 3 Creme Broulee and a cheesecake. We were told the order would be ready in about an hour and they would call us when it was ready for pickup. After about 45 minutes, we decided to drive to the restaurant to pick up our order. We sat in front of the restaurant with no contact by staff for 15 minutes. We then called them and they said the order was ready and they'd be right out. One of the servers came out to tell us that the Creme Broulee was not available for carryout because they did not have containers for it. We cancelled the entire dessert order out of frustration. The fried chicken was about 1/2 of a breast with more breading than meat. It was not warm. The Brussels Sprouts that came with the meal were burnt. The other meal had broccolli which was ok but cold.More

FLAVOR ON MAIN, is one of our favorites in this area. Because of the Pandemic, we have not been there for a long time. On a recent Saurday night there was a pleasant energetic vibe going on (conversation was easy); the tables were all spaced...out well and the staff were all masked, including the chef and line cooks. Reservations are accepted via their website; there's a nice patio for outdoor dining and a big bar which is first come-first serve. We loved being seated right across from the open kitchen. The "dance" of the energetic cooks was great entertainment for us foodies. The wine list is more than adequate and even their "value" wines are well chosen. My pour of a South African unoaked Chardonnay ($9) was generous and my wife's New Zealand Savignon Blanc was better than many pricier labels we've had. Right away they brought a basket of fresh, warm, crusty bread that was as good as we've had anywhere. For apps my wife had a pear & gorgonzola salad that was deliciously huge (we should have split it) and my red pepper crab bisque was rustic, slightly sweet with the essence of red pepper and garnished with several large chunks of crab floated in the bowl. For her entree she had the short rib of beef which was super tender and flavorful. It came with thin fried onion strings, sweet potato puree, and a dolop of sauteed spinach (which ended up on my plate very quickly). My crab cakes were outstanding - two impressive baseball sized orbs of fresh crab and almost no filler. And I didn't find one piece of shell. They were lightly coated and flash fried for a light crust, and served with perfectly cooked mixed veggies and mashed potatoes. We were too full for dessert although the list of home-mades was tempting. Maybe we should have gotten something to go. In summary, the vibe is casual but the menu is definitely upscale and well worth the drive to Culpeper. Our bill was $125 with three drinks, 2 apps, 2 entrees, tax and tip included.More

Such fantastic food and a great time. To begin we ordered the imported burrata, the eggplant dish, and beef carpaccio. Absolutely amazing! Next we got the wedge salad and pear salad which were delicious! For entrees, we got the gnocchi, fettuccine with lamb ragu, and...the short rib dish. Ridiculously yummy! To top it off we shared the creme brulee for dessert. I can't wait to go there again!More

The food is on point! The bartenders Jess, Dave and Clarissa are super friendly and quick with the jokes. I love the ambiance and will always recommend Flavor on Main for an amazing dining experience with these three expert mixologists.
