    Spectacular evening, my wife and I were celebrating our 40th anniversary and wanted a French themed restaurant. Fleurie did not disappoint!! The tray of amuse bouche were very tasty, and unexpected, the appetizers were superb, and were followed by a relieve of gazpacho and corn salad. The main course, we both had the whole lobster, these were completely de-shelled, very expertly, and cooked to perfection! Quenelles of mashed potato and spinach were amazing as was the side of guacamole. Desserts were also well up to par, the crème brûlée was second to none as was the lemon cheesecake. My wife and I were full but they still insisted on serving dessert petit fours, again excellent! The best part they customized our menu to mention our 40th anniversary and let us keep them!!

    Our first time since moving into the Charlottesville area. The service was comfortably formal. The server knew the wines well and made appropriate recommendations. He also provided valuable information on the entrées. The menu had just the right amount of offerings. My wife ordered the beef tenderloin and I enjoyed the venison. There were a couple of tastings provided by the chef that were completely unexpected and incredibly delicious. The apple tart desert was beautiful and tasted delightful. Ever item on any of the plates was presented in meticulous fashion. It was a special experience that we will try to duplicate next year. The prices were what you would expect from a top notch French restaurant.

    Open table did not warn us that there was only a pre fix menu for 95 dollars. In fact online it said it had take out and an a la carte menu. At that price everything was excellent.

    My appetizer, salad, desert, and wine were very good. Fleurie failed to cook my lamb entree medium rare three times. I finally sent it back and canceled my entree. I have eaten at Fleurie many times over many years and all but two were good meals. I will go back again, but not too soon. I know they can do better.

    My partner and I had the absolute best time at Fleurie. The food and ambiance were incredible, and our server was kind enough to give us a complimentary glass of wine with our foie gras, and the chef surprised us with a complimentary fourth course between our appetizers and our entrees. Fleurie is my new favorite restaurant in all of Charlottesville and I cannot wait to return again soon.

    it has been too long since we were last here. The menu is full of interesting and intriguing variations on french approach to cooking, with the chef's local orientation accentuating. Charlottesville has many good restaurants, it has few that operate with this finesse and quality, leaving pretension behind. Wine list is quite impressive, but the wine selection to accompany the prix fixe meal is the way to go, similarly to food the choices are intriguing, inventive, and just right.

    We chose this restaurant solely because of the overwhelming number of excellent reviews. Big mistake. Perhaps at one time this establishment was the real deal. Now they are just phoning it in. The prix fix menu reads well and appears interesting. Sadly, the food, across the board, was uninspired and flavorless. We both decided to opt for the wine pairing and, although the wines were decent and presented with knowledge by our attentive server, the value was questionable. Overall, this restaurant was a complete disappointment and a waste of nearly $500.

    Waiter was prompt and polite. Seasoned bread and oil delicious. Tiny chef appetizers were also. Ordered Venison loin and it was perfectly prepared with small grilled tomatoes and florets of cauliflower and a schmeer of potato. Serving size was small as in many French restaurants. Wine list was a bit pricey. Ordered sea bass to go to take back to my wife at our hotel. Huge disappointment. No more than two, possibly three ounces of bass and zero vegetables. No bread accompaniment and no silverware. All in all, not fie

    This special evening was so disappointing. Fleurie has long been our absolute favorite restaurant for our anniversary dinner. Whenever people ask me to recommend a special restaurant, I have always recommended Fleurie. But this visit, both my husband and my entrees were undercooked and essentially unpalatable. His was venison, mine was bass. This must be a more recent chef-driven philosophy for experiencing the raw flavor of the animal in question, but honestly, it was disgusting. The bass had nothing to add interest to it, the way one thinks of French cooking - wine, garlic, interesting spices and other such additions - it was just basically a big chunk of fish, just one degree beyond raw. There was a little light brown sauce around it, but it was pretty tasteless and unhelpful as well. I forget now what was served with it, but it too was beige. There was no beauty to the presentation. This is just not like the wonderful culinary experiences we have had in the past at Fleurie. Must be a newer chef. It's not cheap to dine at Fleurie, so we likely won't be returning. But, the waitstaff was still great, professional and concerned for your enjoyment, in spite of the menu.

    Disappointing. Food was fine. Scallop appetizer was delicious. Perfectly cooked. Beef carpaccio was dry and nothing special. Lamb was delicious and perfectly cooked. Lobster was good but very small portion and mostly claw meat. Beef tenderloin delicious and nicely prepared. Apple tart was just ok. Lemon cheesecake - just ok. Service was poor.

    My girlfriend and I celebrated my birthday at Fleurie. It was amazing. The pri fixe menu had so many options that it read like a normal menu. I definitely recommend the wine pairing upgrade, their suggestions were perfect. The staff was friendly and professional and made us feel like we were the only guests there.
