Charlottesville has a number of very good restaurants to choose from, but Fleurie is the best! It is our choice for special dinners as well as whenever we want to go out and know that we will have a great experience. The service is very attentive and friendly and they make the extra effort to note our preferences. The food is outstanding and the desserts are too good to turn down! We love Fleurie!

The salad was superb (greens,caromont cheese, pignoli nuts),and so was the creme brûlée and the wine selection. The rockfish unfortunately was bland and the haricots verts were few and over cooked. Farid was outstanding, as usual. He helped a great deal with my wine selection.

It's great. It's pricey for someone without a well paying job, but it's fine dining, I suppose, so can't really complain about that. The staff made it feel worth it for the special occasion which brought us there, so credit especially to them. Very professional and made us feel welcome and well taken care of.

Incredible birthday dinner! The food was so delicious - tasting menu was a wonderful experience! Service was impeccable. We eat at a lot of fine restaurants and rarely find one of this caliber! Each dish was plated beautifully and seasoned well. The staff was very knowledgeable about wine selections. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Charlottesville!

Fleurie was recommended to us by Jason, the owner of Wisdom Oak winery. He assured us we would love it, and we did! Melissa (sommelier) was amazing-her pairings with our meal courses were spot on! The food and other service was also fantastic. Very comfortable, not too formal environment. Highly recommend!

Lovely 50th wedding anniversary twosome dinner at the Fleurie. Our waiter, Farid, was absolutely fabulous. The staff was welcoming, friendly and courteous. Very customer focused. Thank you. The only negative I might add is that since our dinner reservation had been made very well in advance and it included information about out special occasion, we would have sppreciated a more private and romantic table other than the one at which we were seated, just outside the noisy kitchen.

The restaurant is quaint, romantic, and delightful. The service is more than excellent and the wine recommendation was spot on. The food was good, but I would not say outstanding. I am not sure every thing is freshly made either, but I could be wrong about that. I had the pre theater dinner which I thought would be good for first trying out a new restaurant and I am picky about food too because I cook a lot myself. I think that there needs to be some improvements with the food preparation. The chef made some duck confit with turnip, which was kind of gamey with little flavor from the turnip. The meal was the wolf farm beef which was good, but not outstanding. The gnocchi is not my fav, but it was ok. The veggies were really delicious that were accompanied with a bernaise sauce. The chocolate torte was super rich, but the crust of it was not good, IMO, however, the scoop of chocolate ice cream was superior. I have been to many other french restaurants, so maybe I am a bit harsh with this review, but I have had better meals. I might try it again and order something different next time. The service is superior though and the staff is delightful.

Fleurie has very professional servers who know how to make their knowledge enjoyable. The cocktails and wine were excellent, and we were given time to enjoy them. I think the lobster bisque was a greater hit than the chestnut soup, but both are extraordinary. Everyone loved their entrees; the rockfish was best of all. Desserts (I had a pinwheel of an apple tart) were beautiful as well as delicious. This is my second time back to Fleurie after a few years, and I'm truly impressed. It feels both exciting and comfortable.

Fleurie is our go to restaurant in Charlottesville for a special dinner. Usually we are seated along the wall in a table for two but this past Saturday we were so excited to take our adult daughter. We had a great booth in the bar section...loved it! My daughter and I had Cosmos and for the first time ever were asked if we preferred them sweet or dry. They were perfect! We all ordered something different...empty plates all around. The service was very professional from the beautiful young woman who took our coats to the handsome bartender who never forgot us. Great job...we will return.

Fleurie was a wonderful experience. My husband had the regular tasting menu and I had the vegetarian tasting menu. Every course was amazing. My fifth course, the polenta cake, was by far the best plate of food I have ever had. The service was outstanding. I really can't say enough about how much my husband and I enjoyed Fleurie. We will definitely be returning.

Charming, small restaurant with first rate service and an excellent menu. Unplanned, we dined during restaurant week and were impressed by every dish. The gnocchi and lobster bisque and the surf and turf (lobster and roast beef) were well prepared and attractively plated. The desserts were works of art. Will definitely return.

Fleurie is terrific restaurant. The food is always interesting and beautifully prepared. I started with a risotto in squid ink with then slices of chorizo and my wife had a lovely beet salad with horseradish sorbet. My salmon main course was perfect as was my wife's chicken. Delicious desserts. A good wine list, craft cocktails and very professional service.
