We had a wonderful dinner at Duners and have been coming here since it opened in 1983.
Service is always top notch, the menu offers selections for any tastes and all the food is well presented.
The beef filet is always a favorite and does not disappoint on any menu. The menu does change up frequently but always a wonderful selection.
Don't forget to have dessert, the Chocolate Dome Cake is wonderful.
This has always been my favorite restaurant in the Charlottesville area.
Outstanding food and service.
I can’t say enough about the outstanding service we had from our waitress and the friendliness and caution and care which the rest of the staff showed in relationship to the Covid guidelines. The food was excellent and the spacing of the tables was more than adequate for us to feel safe. We ate outside on the patio which was very pleasant but the sound of the heater was a little annoying at times. That said we had a wonderful evening at Dners.
We were very happy to back at Duners. Everything was wonderful as usual.
Shishito pepper appetizer was delicious as well as the salmon with broccoli & basmati rice.
We had a great time. The food was great. It was my wife's birthday and the birthday presentation was tasteful and delicious.
We have been dining at Duner's for 21 years, and have always had an exceptional dining experience.
As usual, phenomenal food, impeccable service, and a delightful dinner.
Very pleased with whole experience and top quality food.
Local and we dine occasionally!
We were seated in the enclosed outdoor space as we had requested. Unfortunately , it was a very cold night and no one else was seated there throughout our dinner. The heater fan was noisy and intermittent, so it turned quite chilly when it was not on. No music was piped in and we could not wait to leave. We will not request this type of seating ever again , preferring the indoor seating for a more enjoyable dining experience.
Highly recommend. Live in Richmond and stop at restaurant every time traveling through the area.
Love it!, best dinner of the year. Great Covid setup, very safe
Totally AWESOME! Perfect in every way!

I've been dining at Duners since the 80's. Always delicious and different from the usual. They always have their staples, but the rest of menu changes daily. My go to when I have friends visiting!
The menu was diverse and all the items looked delicious. It was hard to pick one entree.
The dessert selection was also varied and looked appetizing!
Great food, great service- felt safe, outside adjacent tent was warm and comfortable
Wonderful as usual - delightful evening! Looking forward to eating again at Duners soon.
Our table was ready early and the service was very attentive.
First time and loved it! My wife and I went with our friends and was blown away. Reservations were easy, staff was friendly and helpful. Host was great and our waitress Hannah knocked it out of the park. Being a former chef, the food was prepared beautifully. Delicious and presented wonderfully. Cooked perfectly as ordered. Roasted Duck was the best I’ve ever had, Tuna was amazing and the fried Oysters were terrific. Would highly recommend for a fun date night.
Duners Restaurant has a wonderful reputation. We were anxious to try it for the female chef. The food was good but not for one to drive 90 minutes for this experience. I will probably not travel again to eat since I have several excellent food establishments in my immediate area. Service was OK but I did not find the server to be particularly friendly thus making my experience not quite as rewarding.
Our go to local haunt. Best in town!
Duner’s never disappoints - consistently great food and service. The restaurant has done a great job setting up for comfortable social distance dining.
Tent-dining couldn't be more pleasant! Warm in temperature and very attentive service. So happy Duner's is open and serving terrific food. Our MacCrostie wine was a great price and so tasty. A lovely evening. Can't wait to go back!
A great spot for excellent food and local atmosphere. Located in Ivy VA.
Always good. It was our first time to eat in the new “outdoor enclosure. Tables were very well spaced and ambience was reasonable for such an enclosure. Heaters kept the interior warm but temp regulation had fairly large swings before the heaters kicked back on again; just as I’d reach to put my cost on the heater activated!
Food always good. Fried oysters to start are a highlight. Fish dishes are always solid choices. I tried the Mexican lasagne; it was good. I’d prefer perhaps chorizo in the pork mixture and a warm green sauce over the top. But that’s just me.
Always great service - friendly and attentive.
We ordered four steaks. One was overdone but the waitress took it off the bill
Finally out of the house dinner date!
Duners was a hidden gem. My husband and I were celebrating our 5-year anniversary and came across Duner’s. The food we had was great and the service was absolutely wonderful. The restaurant did a great job making us feel special and also being safe with Covid guidelines. I would definitely go back! The beef tenderloin was so delicious and so was the Carne asada appetizer!!
The menu was excellent! I couldn’t decide what to eat! I chose the short ribs and they were delicious! The service was excellent and the staff couldn’t be any nicer. I look forward to going back!
We just moved here from California and found Duners. Great restaurant, great food and nice people. Love it!!!
Wonderful food and service.
Everything was great! The service was really wonderful!
Food was excellent. Service was as well. We were in an enclosed tent type area with a heater. It was comfortable and a good way to add space during these social distancing times. We’ll definitely be back. Lamb with Peri Peri!
Entrees were delicious and service was impeccable! Disappointed that the dinner salad is now a la carte and no complimentary bread with dinner.
Maintaining ambiance is difficult during these covid times. Duners is doing fine with what it has to work with. I'm sure that when this is all over, the decor will improve. Noise level is a little high, but not disturbing.
As usual great food and great wine....those OYSTERS!!!!
