From 5:30-6:15 we offer a $36 three-course Pre-Theater menu Monday through Saturday (Subject to Exceptions).
Most nights we offer both per-person Tasting and Vegetarian Tasting Menus, highlighting local ingredients and unique creations. Our Tasting Menus feature optional Wine Pairings.
The lobster bisque was perfection and just what I needed on a cold evening. The sweetbreads weren't cleaned correctly and had a strip of membrane running along the outside of all three pieces. The flavor was fantastic though. The filet mignon and duck entrees were cooked to perfection. The duck had a fantastic crisp. Unfortunately, the grand marnier creme brulee had a texture issue- it either wasn't tempered correctly or the liquor caused it to curdle some as it had the texture of rice pudding. This made me really sad because Fleurie used to be the only place that made a better creme brulee than me. The service was spectacular, ambiance relaxed and welcoming, and the wine list excellent. I love this place overall and it is a treat to come.
Truly one of the finest meals (the tasting menu) we've ever had! Wonderful service as well!
I took myself out and felt comfortable
Chefs menu with wine pairing was fantastic! Would love to return next time we are in town.
Cocktail and wines were excellent. Food was good but not great. Service was very attentive but not too much.
What a talented team from heart of house to back. Every moment is an experience of delight filled with flavors that carry you to a place of gastronomy wonders.
Everything was very good. The restaurant did not disappoint. The food was terrific. Staff was very attentive.
Very lovely French restaurant off the main pedestrian street. Excellent food and very professional service. We had pre-show menu and it was great. We will be back
The food was excellent, EXCEPT that the duck was far too tough. I must add that mine was tough; others did not have this problem. - Our server was exceptionally professional and warm.
Once again another outstanding dinner at Fleurie! We asked for some guidance for picking a wine and Kris recommended an outstanding red that was perfect for our meal and palates. We had the tasing menu, without the wind paring and each course was truly superb. One of our best meal experiences anywhere.
Lovely restaurant with very good French cuisine. It’s intimate and romantic. We had my birthday celebration there. The waiter recommended a lovely wine which I appreciated. I had Skate which was prepared beautifully. Thumbs up!
Had a wonderful dinner with great service. Came to celebrate an engagement. They gave us a special menu to take home to mark the occasion. Staff was friendly and attentive. Would recommend.
One of the best meals I’ve had in my life. I will be back!
What a delightful small restaurant in downtown Charlottesville! We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and had a delicious meal. Service was excellent!
My wife and I were coming down to Charlottesville for events on Saturday and decided to try Fleurie on the recommendation of several friends who live in the area. It was fantastic! We did the Chef's Tasting menu with the Reserve Wine pairings. While one of the pairings was not quite up to our standards, the restaurant quickly gave us a replacement and it worked nicely. We would definitely visit Fleurie on future trips to Charlottesville!
Outstanding place for an intimate dinning experience. I look forward to returning.
I dine at Fleurie at least once every weekend I visit Charlottesville, which is maybe 6 times a year. The cuisine and wine list are definitely Michelin-star worthy. My favorite dish there is the New Frontier Bison Ribeye, Hollandaise, Accoutrements, which will easily feed two people. Melissa Boardman's award-winning wine list is alone worth a trip to Charlottesville. Gracious, unobtrusive, polite service tops it all off.
Fleurie is hands-down the best and most elegant restaurant in Charlottesville. If Michelin ever travels to Virginia (other than to the Inn @ Little Washington) they would get a star, no question. Melissa Boardman is a most knowledgeable and approachable and helpful beverage director. Major kudos all around!
Still one of the best restaurants in Charlottesville. However, the portions seem to be getting smaller.
Amazing meal! Loved it here!
We had a lovely dinner and especially enjoyed our waiter. He was professional, did not hover, and gave us excellent advice on wine selection.
Excellent French cuisine with local ingredients and a few modern twists. Portion sizes are perfect. The maître d’ also knows his wine pairings.
Our official honeymoon- the staff, chef and management were so accommodating and attentive, I would definitely recommend to anyone for romance and fantastic menu items. 5 STARS!
Very nice evening. A little pricey, but generally high quality food. Service was a little “hovering” — at more than $100 per person, I expect perfect service.
Lived up to reputation. Outstanding meal and delightful and engaged service. I highly recommend for a date night or special occasion.
Service, hosting, greeting, attentiveness, interaction with staff- 10 out of ten.
Food- oh yeah, memorable, tastes like more, absolutely delicious. Liver pate is almost illegally good. It is addictive.
Fleurie is simply the best. The service is impeccable and we always enjoy the vegetarian creations.
We had a really lovely experience...the waiter was very friendly and efficient...the food was excellent and well presented....it is really a special restaurant which I reserve for special friends and occasions.....
Our food was wonderful and our waitress was superior. There was great team work between front of the house, wait staff and kitchen team!
food was amazing and well presented. Over all amazing experience
What an elegant experience Fleurie is. The food itself is delicious and the service very personable. There was a gracious desire to accommodate our dining wishes from the moment we called for a reservation throughout the evening. It is an elegant yet comfortable setting for dining. It is expensive but worth it. We found it a wonderful night out in all ways.
Birthday. Wonderful evening. Tasting was spectacular. Classic and vegetarian did not disappoint. 6 course meal and we were full half way through. Wines were unusual and had never tried such a exquisite variety. Wishing we lived closer to enjoy this jewel. Definitely recommend for a spectacular, special evening.
The food was wonderful and the staff very helpful and knowledgeable about the food and wines.
The wine steward was very helpful and knowledgeable and I loved her haircut.
A most enjoyable evening! Love the atmosphere and the food was to die for!
This is an outstanding French restaurant with excellent food and service. My wife had salmon on a bed of fennel which she enjoyed very much. I had duck with peaches, pistachios, and a blackberry red wine sauce that was exceptional, one of the best duck entrees I have ever had. There is nice outdoor seating just off the downtown mall. Indoor seating is formal, quiet, and traditional. The waitstaff are friendly and attentive. Overall, this place is a gem and consistently one of Charlottesville's top restaurants. I have found it to be highly reliable over the years.
Excellent food, service top notch, loved the patio experience. Great wine list. Will definitely be back.
Outstanding food & presentation. Service was phenomenal. Quaint location. Can’t wait to go back again!
First time diners at Fleurie for a birthday celebration. Having recently moved to the area from Washington DC, where the dining choices are numerous, we found this small restaurant nearby that could easily match and even out compete many of the restaurants in DC and Northern Virginia. We thoroughly enjoyed the small bistro like atmosphere, great service, and outstanding quality food and drinks we experienced at Fleurie. We would highly recommend Fleurie and will make this our go-to location for special occasions as well as going out with friends and family.
Fleurie is our absolute favorite restaurant in Charlottesville. We go there every time we visit which is several times a year. Our meal there on Friday was a true delight from start to finish. The service was impeccable with wonderful wine recommendations to pair with our delicious meal selections. Thank you Fleurie for so many wonderful evenings. I highly recommend Fleurie to anyone who is seeking fine dining.
