Tastings - A Restaurant, Wine Shop & Wine Bar1. Tastings - A Restaurant, Wine Shop & Wine Bar

Contemporary American | Charlottesville, Charlottesville

Tastings understands the way food and wine should be prepared and served. Bill is the owner/chef and he has some great people assisting him now, which means he can pay more attention to the kitchen. The food is very rich. This is true of almost every dish, so if you don't like rich food, you might not like the selection here. But for an occasional indulgence, it is spectacular. Thankfully, there are several vegetarian choices, and I had the mushroom (with cream of course) soup and the melange of seasonal mushrooms, which came with a variety of small interesting vegetable sides, all of which I loved except the cabbage. No matter. There was plenty of food. My companions loved the soft shell crabs, and other meat dishes that I don't remember. But we had a relaxed, 2 hour plus dinner at which we could talk without yelling, because although there were others there, everyone spoke with quiet respect for the lovely ambiance that is Tastings.

Farm-to-table | Charlottesville, Charlottesville

Absolutely wonderful! A gorgeous farmhouse, small scale, so does not feel like a hotel business but a real countryside experience. If you eat outside, you'll be in an enclosed area with full-length windows, with openings on all sides for when it's warm, and nice white grapes (sort of like an orangerie or garden house) surrounded by vines and tomatoes (you will not be caught if you steal a cherry tomato, I speak from experience!). There is only one seating, at 6:30. You get served a glass of bubbly when you arrive. Then the four courses described on the menu. The food was great and imaginative. Large piece of filet for main course. The service wonderful and warm (we were the last ones to leave and as we were talking with some residents, the staff baked some cookies for the morning and we got to have a few!) And the wine was excellent of course, we got all kinds. They have gorgeous rooms too, so it is worth your while to spend a night. But with a 40 minute scenic drive in the mountains, well worth the visit from Charlottesville too! More

Fleurie3. Fleurie

French | Charlottesville, Charlottesville

Fleurie is hands down the best restaurant in Charlottesville. The cuisine is refined, indeed Michelin-star worthy, and the wine list is award winning. Beverage Director Melissa Boardman is a wonder. We loved the venison carpaccio and the gnocchi, and drank an Ankida Ridge Pinot Noir (from Virginia!). Totally outstanding! More

Very well prepared food and well cooked, spiced,flavored ribeye. While the timing between courses was long, this just set the mood for a romantic dinner. Service was great, attentive and personal (Beth was great). More

Discover Charlottesville

Adjacent to the scenic Shenandoah National Park and home to one of the most successful outdoor pedestrian malls in the country, Charlottesville, Virginia, is a land of contrasts with a noticeably casual atmosphere. The same is true of much of the dining here. Are you craving French, Indian or Thai food? Would you rather try some regional staples like fried pies, ham and biscuits, or Rappahannock oysters? You'll find all of these dishes and more at local restaurants, which typically offer a mix of indoor and outdoor seating so that you can enjoy cooling evening breezes during summer. If you're craving fresh fruits and veggies, check out the City Market's selections from over 100 vendors; the market is open on Saturdays from April through December.
