Valentine’s Day dinner. It was good...it’s always good. Great wine selection and ambience. The “surf and turf” didn’t impress me like I would have expected. Usually I give them a 9/10 or 10/10. It’s still my favorite restaurant but tonight was maybe a 7/10.

Good as always though a couple of issues. My lobster was not warm - room temperature. Also the service was quite slow. There was a winter storm brewing and after about 90 minutes we had to ask them to pick up the pace (which they did). The venison was excellent.

What an absolutely special place- from the food to the service, everything was perfection! We've learned to trust that the food will surprise and delight with unexpected touches and combinations and that we will come out of dinner with a wine, cocktail or wine region that is a new favorite. The whole experience is an education in the best and gentlest way possible. We will be back!!!

Incredible dinner, service, and atmosphere... this restaurant is easily the best in Charlottesville. The sign of a great chef? The ability to consistently incorporate and seamlessly blend just the right amount of individual ingredients into a creative dish, without overdoing it and loosing the flavor of each one of them. This chef has been doing it every night for what... the last 20 years? An amazing culinary experience. Fleurie is currently open for heated outdoor dining and limited indoor dining... both options are wonderful.

Good to see them busy. Only issue was some gap between 2nd course and main course, but really an excellent experience.

Took my fiancé here for a birthday dinner. Fleurie went above and beyond to make her birthday extra special. They even had a menu printed out with her name on it. Multiple staff wished her a happy birthday. She loved it. Food was amazing, drinks as well. Perfect romantic date night place.

This was our first trip to c'ville and we were just exploring the dining options. My wife and I have been to some top notch restaurants over the years and Fleurie was easily in the top five. We did the chef's price fix with the bumped up wine pairing to get the whole experience. From start to finish the meal was simply outstanding. We'd come back to Charlottesville just to dine at Fleurie. So if you're in town and you appreciate the gourmet food experience, you have to go to Fleurie.

As always the food was terrific. It was expertly prepared, delicious, and the chef worked around my husband’s food sensitivities very nicely. Service was great. Restaurant was cold, which is the only complaint.

Fleurie is the type of restaurant that deserves enthusiastic support during and after Covid. Everyone in our party left happy about our meals. We especially appreciated thoughtful wine recommendations from local wineries, which paired with our meals in interesting and fun ways. Anyone searching for a memorable dining experience in Charlottesville should put Fleurie at the top of their list.

My wife Pat and I have dinner at Fleurie at a table, which permitted us to sit side by side. That makes talking a lot easier. As an entrée, I had the Beef Tenderloin, and it came with pureed broccoli and a béarnaise sauce. This combination was outstanding, and I highly recommend this dish.

Absolutely impeccable service, food and dining ambience. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff, every dish was well-explained. The poached lobster, cassoulet and lemon cheesecake were incredibly delectable - my favorite dishes. There's no fault to find with Fluerie. Simply wonderful.

Food and drinks were excellent. I enjoyed the fact that there were surprise taster/appetizers before we began the meal. Reserve wine pairing was perfect. Service was also excellent. Only thing that can be improved upon were the desserts. My wife and I thought they were average, we expected better. But we were overall satisfied and will go back.

This was the second time I had eaten at Fleurie and am still blown away by the food and service. The combination of flavors and textures in the food are exceptional not to mention the presentation of the food. The servers are very attentive and very knowledgeable in the wine department. It’s a must do when in Charlottesville or even a special trip from DC.

Fleurie is that cozy nook you crawl into for an intimate yet fun evening with friends or loved ones. The menu is always concise yet inventive enough to make your decision making on your order an excellent exercise. The cocktails and wine list are always on point for the season and the wine pairing is a must if you have the spare change and a designated driver. Overall, Fleurie is a Charlottesville institution that I could not be more thankful to have in our small town.
