My husband and I had a wonderful meal. Everything you would expect from a true steakhouse. Bryan our server was outstanding.

walking the mall on a hot day with my wife and 2 kids...took a shot...thought we were going to get turn away since we really dress down...but they treated us like were MVP customers. The waiter was really patient with us. The price is a little high...i dont like wine but if you do this seems to be the place. the wine list was large. The food was good.
If you have kids might not be the place. Really didn't have a kids list. Mine find a burger ...it was huge.

Located on the near the lower end of the Downtown Walking Mall, we stumbled into the Downtown Grille on a very HOT July evening. It looked inviting, so we took a shot. Bullseye! We were casually dressed but were treated like Royalty. The wine list was extensive, even 'by the glass' pours. The menu was very creative. We chose several selections from the Starters menu to create a Wonderful Meal. The wait staff was professional, very well trained, warm and helpful.. In short, a highly memorable experience. We would definitely "REPEAT"!!!

This place is in what they call the mall (which is a closed to traffic happening place, formerly a street downtown, in Charlottesville).
Not inexpensive, but overall a pleasant and delicious experience. (there are plenty of other less expensive choices if you wish)

I would go here for the guy at the bar or the waitstaff. And while the food is good and nice, it's not something that makes my mouth water just waiting for it. It's a bit stuffy and overpriced for my taste. You may be better off at Hamilton's for the same type of atmosphere.
