Fleurie has very professional servers who know how to make their knowledge enjoyable. The cocktails and wine were excellent, and we were given time to enjoy them. I think the lobster bisque was a greater hit than the chestnut soup, but both are extraordinary. Everyone loved their entrees; the rockfish was best of all. Desserts (I had a pinwheel of an apple tart) were beautiful as well as delicious. This is my second time back to Fleurie after a few years, and I'm truly impressed. It feels both exciting and comfortable.

Fleurie is our go to restaurant in Charlottesville for a special dinner. Usually we are seated along the wall in a table for two but this past Saturday we were so excited to take our adult daughter. We had a great booth in the bar section...loved it! My daughter and I had Cosmos and for the first time ever were asked if we preferred them sweet or dry. They were perfect! We all ordered something different...empty plates all around. The service was very professional from the beautiful young woman who took our coats to the handsome bartender who never forgot us. Great job...we will return.

Fleurie was a wonderful experience. My husband had the regular tasting menu and I had the vegetarian tasting menu. Every course was amazing. My fifth course, the polenta cake, was by far the best plate of food I have ever had. The service was outstanding. I really can't say enough about how much my husband and I enjoyed Fleurie. We will definitely be returning.

Excellent restaurant with attentive efficient staff, delicious food carefully prepared. Extensive selection of wines, beer and drinks.
We took advantage of the "theater menu" which got us to the concert with plenty of time to spare.

Charming, small restaurant with first rate service and an excellent menu. Unplanned, we dined during restaurant week and were impressed by every dish. The gnocchi and lobster bisque and the surf and turf (lobster and roast beef) were well prepared and attractively plated. The desserts were works of art. Will definitely return.

Fleurie is terrific restaurant. The food is always interesting and beautifully prepared. I started with a risotto in squid ink with then slices of chorizo and my wife had a lovely beet salad with horseradish sorbet. My salmon main course was perfect as was my wife's chicken. Delicious desserts. A good wine list, craft cocktails and very professional service.

This is the third time we have been to Fleurie and as usual it was amazing. Incredible service, knowledgeable servers (she recommended the best wine pairing I have ever had), and absolutely INCREDIBLE food. This place is a treasure and if you like creative and delicious dishes, you must give Fleurie a try.

Our first visit to Fleurie proved to be a smashing success. The Restaurant Week menu included so many appealing options that we had a hard time choosing. Everything was expertly prepared in the classic tradition with a modern flair. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. We will definitely return to sample the regular menu.

Loved everything about this restaurant and our meal there. It was a culinary delight for the senses! And must say it was one of the best meals I have ever had. The service was impeccable, too. Our waitress paid such wonderful attention to detail, straightening our utensils when the entrees arrived, making sure our water glasses were placed just so. We were very impressed.

We love Fleurie, but we came last Saturday evening and we were put right in front of the kitchen. The host moved us to the table next one over. Service was impeccable as always, but we were blown away by Melissa, she’s awesome! Unfortunately our lobster bisque was cold and my Wagyu steak, which was $85 , had no taste at all, no seasoning. The chestnut soup was way too sweet, could be a dessert soup. Otherwise our dinner was nice, but will be taking a break for awhile.

Neal, the Head Service Manager at The Inn at Little Washington, told us that one of the former chefs there was now at Fleurie in Charlottesville. We were headed to Charlottesville the next day so we booked a table at Fleurie via Open Table. Fleurie is on the Pedestrian Mall in Charlottesville. It was very cold with about 5” of snow on the ground and that Tuesday night the Pedestrian Mall was deserted but Fleurie was warm and welcoming with most tables occupied. We had a wonderful evening. The food was delicious and with a picture perfect presentation. The service was delightful, helpful and efficient. The wine list was varied with a good selection and numerous varietals. Our evening was truly splendid and I would highly recommend Fleurie whenever your travels take you to Charlottesville!

My scallop dinner was good but not amazing. My husbands duck WAS amazing.
Wish we had known we were getting a complementary little chocolates dessert in advance, would not have needed to order the other dessert. Coffee was tepid but did not complain as it was end of evening.
A lovely fine dining experience for the most part!

I hoped when I indicated on the reservation that this was a birthday dinner that we might have a chance at a nice table, but we were seated right next to the fairly loud kitchen. The service was pretty prompt & they let us have our table fifteen minutes early (5:45). I was disappointed that the waiter had to be asked to provide us with the pre-theater menu: Fleurie should know that most customers at an expensive restaurant don't like to make a big deal of the fact they're on a budget. All that said, the food was excellent--the lobster bisque in particular, one of the best soups I'd ever had.

We had a fabulous evening celebrating our anniversary. The venue reminded us of restaurants in Europe. The service was outstanding, we had at least 4 waiters, all very attentive and never intrusive. The food delicious My only suggestion would be to have a more traditional French salad to come with the entre rather than an a la carte salad. The lobster bisque was great, and the chef's special desserts following the meal were a delightful surprise. We cannot wait to return.

This is a return visit to Fleurie and once again it was wonderful. The service was impeccable, the food delicious, and the ambience was very nice. The wine list is huge with lots of variety and this time we relied on the recommendation of the wine steward and his suggestion was terrific. We had a great time and will definitely be back again. In this part of the state it has no peer, and although I am sure there are good French restaurants in Washington DC and Charlotte, I am not aware of any better.
