    The food at Fleurie is elevated above everything else in town. You are greeted almost immediately with a selection of amuse-bouches to nibble while perusing the menu. Several choices are offered among Appetizers, Entrees, and Desserts, among them vegetarian options. In addition, the list of specials surprises and delights. The plates live up fully to expectations, in particular the Arctic Char with smoked salmon sauce and salmon roe was superb. After a decadent chocolate bombe in a rich dark chocolate pool, even mignardises were served. What a value! You would have to travel far and wide to get a dinner of this caliber. Compliments to the chef.

    Wonderful meal, as always. They had a Dover sole entree special that was absolutely beautiful. I recommend getting a supplemental foie gras appetizer - the seared portion might be the best bite of food in town. The elevated wine pairing is also worth the money.

    My only complaint is that I wish Fleurie would enforce business casual attire. I feel like a prude but there was a couple seated that looked like they just came in from doing yard work.

    What an amazing evening at Fleurie. I wish I could have rated the food and service 6 stars. We celebrated a 50th anniversary with good friends and wanted it to be a very special night for them -- they loved every minute! Melissa (somm) was amazing. Our friends are Sauvignon Blanc drinkers and Melissa guided us to a very special bottle of Puilly Fume which was loved by all of us. I had the risotto with mushrooms -- which was amazing and one of the best dishes I've ever had -- and the lamb. I wanted a glass of red and Melissa suggested a nice rich Amarone which paired beautifully with my meal -- particularly with the risotto. Other dishes particularly enjoyed were the butternut squash gnocchi (like eating a cloud!) and scallop appetizers, the chickpea entree (amazingly tasty!) and the apple tart and chocolate bomb desserts. Also, an incredible array of amuse bouche and between servings surprises which were tasty and kept the foodie endorphins hopping! Over breakfast this morning we were marveling at the very attentive, elegant, and efficient service. Never intrusive. Always friendly and pleasant if engaged. Always there immediately anticipating or satisfying our every need. Everyone was wonderful! I've been to Michelin star restaurants around the world. Sometimes blow your mind transcendent, sometimes really good but not mind-blowing. While some certainly provide off-the-charts culinary creativity that is exciting and hard to match, it is a very, very, rare occasion at these restaurants that they exceed the pure delight, enjoyment, and food and wine tasting ecstasy that our group experienced at Fleurie last evening! Thank you for making our celebration so special and memorable!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. This was to celebrate my wife's birthday, and the staff did a tremendous job with that, surprising and delighting us with special treats in between meals, starters and even post dessert. The food was absolutely delicious. We tried to eat everything but had to take our last dessert plate home. I would definitely recommend Fleurie to anyone who is celebrating a special occasion or just wants a culinary treat in the Charlottesville area. There's really nothing quite like it. The price point is not for the faint of heart, so be aware of that. Would I say the price was worth it? In general yes, it was one of our best meals in a very long time. Are things in general getting mor and more expensive? Yes, and this is no exception to inflation. But I don't feel like I didn't get my money's worth. Well done Fleurie. We'll be back again.

    Fleurie is (was?) my number one favorite restaurant, which is why I am disappointed that after having driven three hours to show my friends my favorite place, it was a lackluster experience. I never like when I sit down and the server starts to tell me all the things they no longer have available. The reservation was 7:30, a very typical dinner time. Not sure why they were out of everything

    I ordered Filet Mignon. It was average at best. I suspect it was locally grown grass-fed beef, as it had little marbeling and little flavor. It was prepared accurately. The restaurant did not charge me for the steak, which I appreciated. This restaurant, which has a prix fixe menu and portraying itself to be a premier Charlottesville restaurant, was average to me. It was packed. The seating was very tight. The tables and chairs could use some updating. The Service was subpar. The staff was overwhelmed, and it took a very long time between courses or for beverage/cocktail/wine service. It seemed like it was missing staff manager, or staff manager. On a positive note, wine selection was very good, and desert was very good as well. I do not have any plans on returning.

    We had travelled from North Carolina and we were looking forward to our dinner. What a disappointment! The restaurant was packed. The servers were limited. No one ever came to get a wine order despite asking for the wine menu 2x. Carte brought then no one returned. We had brought a bottle but wanted to start with an aperitif. Immediately told at 6:30 out of many things. Then by 8:30 main course had not arrived. It seemed as if understaffed and something was off. Robert the manager did comp our main courses, but it was over 3 hours of sitting and waiting. Our initial server was bubbly and sweet, the second server was missing in action and clearly was overwhelmed. I’m not sure we will go back. Dinners are special, and this night it appears from other diners was a mishap for many

    Fleurie is our special place to go. The filet my husband had before was delicious, but not last night. I ordered the lobster with bolognese. I couldn’t taste the lobster because the sauce was so strong. This won’t keep us from coming back but will be looking for something that tastes much better.

    We go to Fleurie for all of our “special” milestone celebrations and each time our decision to enjoy the fantastic and unobtrusive service, and delectable cuisine does not disappoint. It’ll be 7 years since our first visit and we are hopeful there will be x7 more opportunities to enjoy! An added note, the wine we selected was not available and the sommelier brought us a slightly higher priced option but honored the price of the unavailable one. Those are the significant service points you will find, among many others. Merci for a wonderful evening.

We sat at the Chefs table , celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary, drank beautifully paired wine and enjoy the pace of the evening. We were not rushed and had the best evening. Being in town for the first time the restaurant was recommended from a friend and it did NOT fail. Thank you

    Ths is our favorite special occasion restaurant and it was to celebrate my birthday. We were warmly greeted by Chrissy. She is not only pleasant but a consistent wait staffer responsible to changing over tables. Done immediately as soon as the former patron left so ready for the next…no lingering dishes. Our server was Ellie who was also polite and professional explaining changes in the menu. She was also very helpful and informed in helping with wine selection. Our meal was delicious, as always. French summer sausage with escargot and Beaujolais risotto to start, duck breast and sea bass to follow and concluding with pistachio blonde and apple tart. Even a nice touch with a small candle on mine and discreet birthday wishes. Just a wonderful evening and we will return as always.
