                                        Memorable meal, though pricey. Took the sommelier pairing, with our favorite sommelier Melissa. Wine went beautifully with the food. Bavarian-style venison special was best since, well, Bavaria. Chef sent out some lovely tasties. Overall, just really nice!

                                        Had a great birthday experience at Fleurie, the food was incredible and the service was exceptional. I’ve had a lot of fabulous meals, but this one might be the best I’ve ever had. We had the prix fixe menu but also were treated to 3 courses on the house (canapés, lobster salad, and extra dessert). We had a lovely bottle of wine and help from the sommelier to pick it out. And I’m going to dream about that lemon cheesecake for weeks. 5 stars, best restaurant in Charlottesville!

                                        The food at Fleurie definitely did not disappoint. And there were even some surprises that we hadnt counted on. I expected a bit more from the wine pairings, since the wine list was so extensive (22pgs!), but the wines that were poured were pretty basic. Next time we will choose our own bottles to explore. If the people at the table next to us hadnt been so loud, it would have been a perfect experience. Not the fault of the restaurant at all. We will definitely be back!

                                        I chose Fleurie for my partner's birthday. I ordered a sea scallop appetizer and a venison entree. My partner ordered a raw oyster appetizer and lamb chop entree. We both had apple tart for dessert (my partner's came with a lighted birthday candle.) The waiter brought some exquisite little tidbits between the courses. Food was varied and interesting, service was superb. As far as beverages go: my partner enjoyed his cocktail--an Old Fashioned--and we asked the waiter for help choosing an appropriate glass of wine for each of our entrees. She made fine suggestions. An elegant restaurant to celebrate a special occasion.

                                        We felt so pampered at this lovely restaurant! The service was outstanding. When I walked in the host welcomed me by saying my name. The food was so delicious and a feast for the eyes. Wine list outstanding and cocktails yummy. The special treats surprised us and I can’t stop thinking about my lobster salad and the mini lemon meringue pastry. Main courses did not disappoint. Although expensive it was worth every dime. FYI, pre fixe menu.

                                        This is a superb French restaurant in downtown Charlottesville. The food was outstanding. We both had the poached lobster which I highly recommend. The lobster bisque was excellent as was the carrot and parsnip salad we had as appetizers. The service is a cut above most restaurants I’ve been to lately . Our waiter was very friendly and attentive . I would recommend Fleurie for a quiet pleasant dinner.

                                        We have gone to Flurie many times for our birthday (my wife and I have the same birthday). Flurie remembered from past years and our menus said, "Happy Birthday". We both had the lobster which was incredible. The service was outstanding and friendly. As a final touch, our desserts had lighted candles. By the way, several other tables had people celebrating birthdays.

The steak was perfectly prepared and the lobster was absolutely wonderful. The Sommelier Melissa was terrific both as our server and also in making wine recommendations. We will be back often!!

                                        Food was great, service was great. I may wish there were vegetarian options, but that sounds like a complaint, and I have no complaints.

                                        Simply perfect. Fleurie is pure gastronomy, every bite is a poem.

                                        Sauces were way to rich and crushed the food. We had to scrape the sauce off the sea bass. on the upside, our server was awesome!

                                        We were so looking forward to our dinner reservation. Outstanding in every way. Venison and beef tenderloin were excellent. Salad delicious. Apple tart and creme brulee yum. Great wine choices. Chef prepared extra delights. Expensive but worth it for 45th Anniversary. Hostess & waitress superb. Awesome night.

The service is impeccable; the food is delectable and the wine list is extensive with lots of reasonable selections. Melissa was our server last night and we will ask for her every time. She is attentive, creative generous and knowledgeable, AND ever so experienced. A true delight. We are so fortunate to have her in Charlottesville. And, she makes Fleurie even more welcoming.
