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.

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.

Our dinner was for a special occasion, and it exceeded our expectations. We were seated promptly, the wait staff was courteous and articulate (despite the masks!), and the food (and wine pairing) was out of this world. In C'ville and looking for someplace special? Go to Fleurie!

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. Highly recommend !

What an amazing experience. We sat on the outside patio. The choices on the menu were wonderful. It was hard to decide what to choose. What we picked was deeeelicious! The amuse bouche that were served between selected dishes were also delicious. We did not order wine because we had just been at a winery. Instead we got a lavender drink and a passion fruit drink. Great! I can also report that my dog really appreciated the pieces of lamb that were given him. Whenever I visit Charlottesville again, I will make sure to return for another dinner at Fleurie!

This restaurant offers a two star dining experience from the amuse bouche to the intermezzo to the pour bois and everything in between. Expertly presented, the service was equal to the food. The house salad had a mix of tender greens with a lovely mustard vinaigrette with crumbled Roquefort. The bread was house made. My lamb was cooked to perfection and butter tender. The house made fruit sorbet included passion fruit. Even the mint tea was special. Fleurie is worth a special trip!

The food was absolutely amazing! We loved the presentations, the extra canapes, the added dessert bites and the quality and freshness of the food. The service was a little slow and we think this is due to the wide-spread problems with adequate staffing due to covid. We were a little disappointed to not have an ala carte menu to choose from, but the choices on the price fixe were good. We have never been disappointed with Fleurie. Being a little pricey, we don't go as often as we'd like. It's a place to go for celebrations.

I've been to fine restaurants all over the country and in many parts of Europe, including France. The service at Fleurie was the best I have ever experienced. So well coordinated - almost choreographed! Our waiter was extremely helpful and accommodating and the other servers worked very well throughout our meal. One surprise after another, starting with the small apps sent by the chef. While the meal was one of the more expensive ones we have had in Charlottesville, it was a memorable experience and a very special evening. (We were there for a birthday celebration for my wife.)
The food was cooked to near-perfection. The only thing that kept it from my highest rating is that one of us had the lobster, with was sweet in its reduction form, which was a bit unexpected. Also, I was expecting the apple tart to be a little crisper. Otherwise, it was an incredible meal!

We have been looking forward to dining at Fleurie for months since moving to the Charlottesville area just weeks ahead of the shutdown. As things started opening back up, we planned several times to go, but one thing after another impacted these plans. Finally got to go last Friday. By and large, it was everything we hoped and anticipated it would be, with one exception: my steak arrived well done rather than the medium rare requested. Although Fleurie did remedy the error by redoing my entree in entirety, the experience was not consistent with what I would expect from a restaurant in this price range and reputation.

Fleurie is our favorite restaurant in Charlottesville. It has been our go-to place for anniversaries and birthdays for the past 15 years. The food is fantastic—never had a disappointing dish, let alone a bad meal. The service is bespoke, the wait staff genuinely kind and knowledgeable, and the wine pairings spot on. The ambiance is perfect for an intimate dinner. It feels like a neighborhood bistro on New York’s Upper East Side—the kind of place you go again and again because it’s a joy, where you remember people’s names and they remember you, where lasting memories are made.

What a 5-Star experience! The poached lobster was the best I have ever had. The sauce and presentation were exceptional. The service was lovely and the Maitre D and waiter were very knowledgeable about food and wine. We enjoyed our evening very much and consider Fleurie to be the best restaurant in Charlottesville!
