My husband and I totally enjoyed our evening meal at Fleurie. The meal was excellent and our French waiter was... Oh la la...superbe. The drinks he prepared for us was perfect as well as his guidance toward the best wine to drink. We also enjoyed his friendly demeanor.
A most wonderful evening.

PS: In case this note reaches our waiter please tell him that the meal was according to Dennis "vachement bon!"

Fleurie is the best high-end restaurant in Charlottesville, period. If Michelin were ever to cover Charlottesville, Fleurie would definitely get a star. The cuisine is inventive and fabulous. The service discreet and inobtrusive, and the wine list to die for. Beverage director Melissa Boardman is a delight to interact with.

One of my favourite restaurants in C'ville. Fleurie can only be described as highly civilized. Absolutely flawless service, comfortable, quiet and soothing. The food is EXCELLENT and the chef is very accommodating with regard to dietary requirements and preferences. I can't wait to go back there for the third time and try some other dishes. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for good food in an atmosphere that is conducive to enjoying the good company at your table.

We had a wonderful anniversary dinner last weekend at Fleurie. It overall atmosphere is inviting and pleasant. I love that fact that you can carry on a conversation because it's not too loud. The service was excellent. The food was creative and delicious. I absolutely loved my gnocchi appetizer, the duck, and a dessert we shared - chocolate mousse cake with a blackberry sorbie. I highly recommend Fleurie and I definitely plan to go back again.

Overpriced mediocrity. Tiny portion of lobster (estimated at 3-4 ounces) that had absolutely no flavor. Garden salad was nothing special. This used to be our favorite restaurant but doubt that we will return.

The restaurant staff and service was incredible! Attention to detail and care for their guests was the best I have ever had in Charlottesville. I had just proposed to my girlfriend (she said yes!) and had left a note for the staff that we were coming to celebrate our engagement and they were completely prepared for us and made us feel special. Amazing food, wine, experience!

My wife and I have eaten at Fleurie a dozen times and we think it is a terrific restaurant. This occasion was no different except for one odd dish - the fines herbes risotto. It was bland, as if they forgot any seasoning or perhaps the confit garlic. A little shaved Parmesan might have been nice. Anyway not bad, just bland. And everything else was wonderful, as usual. Delicious gnocchi appetizer, great salmon main course and the chocolate mousse with a hard shell was to die for. Our server was excellent as well.

The food is beautifully presented, original in its preparation and there is an extensive wine list. The service was excellent. The only negative is the noise level.

The scallops served during restaurant week for the entree was the best thing that I have eaten this year. Every other course was very good but the scallops stood out. They were perfectly cooked and had a sauce that was outstanding. I could only hope to replicate the bearnaise sauce with fresh corn and lardons. Highly recommend.

This is a first rate place. Romantic. Classy. Nice old jazz playing in the background (and not too loud). Excellent service. It!s expensive, but overall, one cannot go wrong eating here.

We were celebrating our anniversary and really enjoyed the Fleurie team’s acknowledgment of our special occasion. We definitely felt that we were treated as special dining guests. Our waitress (Jessi) was especially engaging and attentive. The food and wine were definitely 5 star in their presentation and taste.

Our second time at Fleurie and again we were most pleased with the quality and service provided.
Very relaxing dinner and not rushed to turn over the table.
Knowledgeable staff on both the food and wine being served.
Hope to return soon.

We had dinner on a Friday night and just loved it. The stuffed quail was off the charts. I had the Skate, that's the fish, not the cow, Au Poivre and it was one of the best pieces of fish/preparation I've ever had. It came with green beans and mashed potatoes just like the meat version would have. The service is solicitous and the setting attractive. We would definitely return!

This was our fourth visit on the occasion of my wife's birthday. We have always enjoyed the experience. Unfortunately, in the wee hours of the morning, my wife experienced GI distress. She thinks it was the salmon which she ordered while I had the beef. Otherwise, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

A fantastic experience celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary last week at Fleurie. All the special touches by the staff were greatly appreciated: A personalized menu, 2 glasses of champagne, lovely little desserts. The food was spectacular, the service perfect and we were lucky enough to be seated outside on a beautiful evening. We have already booked reservations for Fleurie via Open table for my birthday in July.

I had the beef tenderloin and couldn't have been more pleased. The meat started falling apart as soon as I put the fork to it, and it was perfectly seasoned and cooked. My wife had the lobster and said it was the best she'd had. The service was top notch and they went above and beyond to help me celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. I would highly recommend this place and can't wait to go back!
