Fleurie was a very nice, cozy restaurant with delicious food and great service. The ambiance was comfortable and appealing, and the food creative and well prepared. Our waitstaff was outstanding! Melissa was particularly helpful. She guided us to some excellent menu choices and wine pairings that perfectly suited our tastes that evening. Overall, it was great dinner and an enjoyable evening.

My daughter had her 21st birthday here and they did an amazing job. She will remember this as one of her best meals. Between Rebecca and Melissa, they made her meal a wonderful event. They personalized her menu. Rebecca went out and bought flowers for her. Melissa picked out a great wine that went perfectly with their meal. My daughter and her boyfriend loved the food! I would recommend Fleurie for Special occasions and everyday dining!

They really swept us off our feet! Everything was superb, if I had an extra would give three thumbs up for the butter poached lobster. Also kudos to their bar tender, a real master of his craft.

Remarkably authentic French cuisine, as opposed to more typical American-French.

We had the tasting menu consisting of foie gras, scallops, lobster, rabbit, lamb trio, sorbet, and macaron ice cream sandwiches.

$35 corkage was hefty but tolerable.

Recommended by a friend and a real winner in downtown Cville. Had three small plates, lobster bisque, beet salad and mushroom stuffed quail--all superb! Wife had lobster bisque and beautiful scallops. Thanks to Chef for letting us sample such a variety! Would recommend to anyone visiting Cville.

Excellent five star service! Lovely French food in the Charlottesville area and one of the higher end places in that area. Service and good were great for the value. Ordered a la cart and portions were generous and rich in flavor. Next time going for the tasting menu and nice that they offered a veggie tasting menu option!

Enjoyed the butter poached lobster, scallops, and mushroom gnocchi dumplings. All outstanding. A generous complimentary dessert bites were served!

The chef has a deft hand. Everything always perfectly cooked, seasoning creatively chosen and balanced. I savored every bite tonight, esp the bison. Melt in your mouth - and that bernaise was heaven! Service is wonderfully attentive without pretention. If you want delicious, unique wine choices with your meal, ask for Melissa as your server! And don't miss the creme brulee for dessert. With the mead!

Charlottesville has a number of very good restaurants to choose from, but Fleurie is the best! It is our choice for special dinners as well as whenever we want to go out and know that we will have a great experience. The service is very attentive and friendly and they make the extra effort to note our preferences. The food is outstanding and the desserts are too good to turn down! We love Fleurie!

The salad was superb (greens,caromont cheese, pignoli nuts),and so was the creme brûlée and the wine selection. The rockfish unfortunately was bland and the haricots verts were few and over cooked. Farid was outstanding, as usual. He helped a great deal with my wine selection.

It's great. It's pricey for someone without a well paying job, but it's fine dining, I suppose, so can't really complain about that. The staff made it feel worth it for the special occasion which brought us there, so credit especially to them. Very professional and made us feel welcome and well taken care of.

Fleurie was recommended to us by Jason, the owner of Wisdom Oak winery. He assured us we would love it, and we did! Melissa (sommelier) was amazing-her pairings with our meal courses were spot on! The food and other service was also fantastic. Very comfortable, not too formal environment. Highly recommend!

Lovely 50th wedding anniversary twosome dinner at the Fleurie. Our waiter, Farid, was absolutely fabulous. The staff was welcoming, friendly and courteous. Very customer focused. Thank you. The only negative I might add is that since our dinner reservation had been made very well in advance and it included information about out special occasion, we would have sppreciated a more private and romantic table other than the one at which we were seated, just outside the noisy kitchen.
