Everytime we are in the Charlottesville area we have dinner @ Fleurie. They never disappoint. This time the stand-outs were the seared foie gras & whole lobster. Both a small supplement on a fixed price menu but worth every penny! Excellent service & hospitality. Hope to return again next year.

Our first time won’t be our last, when we’re in the area. Lovely food and service. The food was yummy but hit the wall prior to dessert. After having not been out for 1.5 years..this was truly lovely.

We have always enjoyed our evenings at Fleurie and have been coming for many years. We love the menu and the variety. Service is always prompt and friendly. We appreciate how unique flavors and dishes are offered and the offerings are a welcome change amid a sea of brew pubs and the like. My only critique of our last visit is the plated food could have been a bit warmer. But in times like these we also understand that staffing presents a challenge and I know our serving team was busy but never too busy to smile and offer polite discussion. We will return and APPRECIATE the culinary experience that Fleurie offers!!!

This is a fine dining experience with multiple courses, so plan on 2hrs to savor it all. The mood is subdued, quiet, and the service is personal and accommodating. Melissa is the sommelier and I like to just tell her what type of wine I like and a price point and let her bring something she is excited about. That way I get to experience and learn about wines I might not otherwise have tried. For example, last night she brought a 2015 Clos Cibonne Tibouren Rouge. Well, I had never had the tibouren grape before because it is somewhat rare and not grown outside of this particular part of Provence. It was terrific.

I have had great food at Fleurie but last night was unremarkable, especially for the money. I'll kind of give them a pass but not going to hurry back.

I'll recommend it with a caveat.

This was another wonderful night of French dining. We had been here before and knew that the chef is a graduate of The Inn at Little Washington. The sauces, the meat, the fish, all fresh and napped with wonderful robust sauces and garniture. We had a wonderful red, full bodied but soft. Go and go now!

What a superb dining experience. Everything was prepared and presented at the highest culinary level. Our server was excellent and the atmosphere made you feel very much at home. In contrast to other prix fixe menus, Fleurie has many choices. Expensive but well worth it.

Last night, We drove from NOVA (3+ hours in traffic and thunderstorm) to celebrate my birthday with my son who attends UVA. I tell you, it was well worth the long dangerous drive ! Everything was PERFECT. Food, portions, service, ambiance, lighting, smiles, bread, complimentary extra courses (3 surprise courses) and no loud music....we cannot wait to go back ! I told my son that he needs to bring his future girlfriend here to propose ~

This is a restaurant where everything is top notch and comfortable from the minute you walk in. It is my special occasion restaurant because it is a dining experience and not just “eating out”. The atmosphere, attentiveness of the staff and culinary talents in the kitchen are above par. Already booked our next special occasion. Plan ahead because it seems the word is back out. Also very thankful they survived the pandemic. One of the few remaining classic restaurants in Charlottesville.

This is the best special occasion restaurant in Charlottesville. From cocktail to amuse bouche to appetizer to wine pairings to entree to dessert to complimentary petit fours, everything is exceptional. So is the service, which is unobtrusive while simultaneously anticipating every need or desire. We never miss the chance to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or just an everyday victory at Fleurie.

Fabulous meal! Apparently the old chef is back.The restaurant changed hands or just got a new chef and it wasn’t up to its usual standards last time we ate there. It is now, and dare I say, better! We had the most delicious meal! I had the oysters and the sea bass and my date had the green salad and lobster main, along with a few surprises throughout the meal. Everything was soooooo goooood! If you haven’t been in a while . . . Covid or a mediocre experience. . . It’s time to go back. You won’t be disappointed!!

Except for the rain blowing in on our table- had an end table on porch, we had an 5 * experience. It would have been helpful to know where to park since we had never been to this area of Charlottesville.

What a wonderful restaurant in Charlottesville! Our hostess/server was so well informed on the wines that accompanied our dinner. The food was perfectly prepared. I want to thank Fluerie again for making my husband’s birthday extra special. We have put Fluerie on our list of restaurants that we will be going to every time we come back to Charlottesville.
