“Superb experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

Fleurie is very pricey by Charlottesville standards, but it is certainly among the top restaurants in the city. Everything was perfect. The ambience is what one would expect. The service was top notch with knowledgeable and well-trained wait staff. The wine selection was very nice. Most importantly, the food was outstanding.

The scallop was perfectly seared with wonderful seasoning. The beef was done to perfection. The vegetables that accompanied the food were flavorful and not overcooked. We had a cheese plate for dessert and received a very respectable selection. Finally, unlike so many nice restaurants, they invest in serving good coffee with dessert.

Overall it was well worth the price for an outstanding evening.

“Great food at outrageously expensive prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

The food at this restaurant is superb, but very pricey. We tried the melt-in-your mouth rack of lamb served with these amazing potatoes. My son had the beef tenderloin that was also amazing. So is the risotto. Desserts that stood out were the apple tart and baba au rum.

“A disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Poor service (never acknowledged until we asked; 45 minutes until appetizer served); ordered bottled water and wine but had to ask another wait person for service
At 7:30- first thing we were told was how many things ( on a Thursday night) were no longer available
Fish dish ( halibut,) was tasteless. Pork chop was served with German sides , although a French restaurant- no preview before ordering by wait person
Many other choices in the mall for restaurants or the Ivy Inn which was excellent.
In sum, not worth it.

“Fleurie: still the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

We've been to Fleurie many times and have always found it to be superb. We tried it during Restaurant Week, half expecting a lesser experience due to the crowds. But no, Fleurie once again exceeded our lofty expectations. Each of the three courses was outstanding, particularly the lobster and filet mignon entree. Kudos again to Fleurie, the best restaurant in Charlottesville.
