Contemporary American | Charlottesville, Charlottesville

I really don’t understand why people are giving this place such low ratings, I have been with my family three times over the course of a year (we do not live in Charlottesville). Each time we learn something new about wine and try something incredible from the kitchen. I can understand how your first visit can be intimidating because there is no wine list but please trust the owner or staff, they are incredible knowledgeable. We also do a wine flight to try new things and talk with the waiter about which wines we liked more than others. You can also walk through the wine shop and pick your own bottle which they will open for you. We always have had a great time! More

At first glance you would not expect much from this small homey restaurant. However, after looking over the menu for the first time you will quickly learn to not judge a book by its cover. The amazing food, which is all made in house, coupled with a relaxed atmosphere leads to a fine dining experience unlike any other I have ever been a part of. Duners is great for date nights, catching up with friends, dinner with the parents, or even a treat yourself kind of night. More

Everyone in my party enjoyed their drinks and meal. The assorted bread dish was a great way to accommodate everyone's preferences. We all had plenty of food to take home, and the food reheated well. We sat in a corner booth and it was uncomfortable because the bench had little padding and the table was awkwardly high. More

Zocalo is a true dining gym on the Charlottesville downtown mall. Featuring latin-inspired cuisine, the food at Zocalo never fails to impress. This evening my wife and I enjoyed a roasted farro and kale salad. She then had chili dusted scallops over tostones in a carrot vanilla sauce will I enjoyed roasted rockfish with a fennel salad over a polenta cake in a tomatillo tomato sauce. Our dessert was also creative. We enjoyed pineapple ice cream with a jalapeno syrup. Simply Delicious and refreshing. So if you are going to Charlottesville and perhaps going to a show at the Paramount Theater do yourself a favor and stop by Zocalo for some South American fare. More

We eat out quite a bit and the quality of the food, and fun drinks, was 5 star! More

We sat outside and the was greeted with a panoramic view of downtown Charlottesville. While the menu was limited we still found entries that we all liked. We ordered the cheese board and wings for appetizers. For dinner we ordered spicy chicken sandwiches and the special Tri-Tip steak. With the exception of the steak the appetizers and sandwiches were excellent. I would rate the steak special as good because it seemed more like stewed meat than grilled. There was an issue with service at the start because our waiter was inexperienced and the place crowded. We mentioned the issue to the Executive Chef Jason and he assigned a waitress (name started with Pat) who was attentive, efficient and did a great job. For our trouble, Jason showed that he valued our patronage and actually comped our meal and provided dessert (New York Cheesecake and Death By Chocolate Cake) that was over the top. If it wasn't for the issues I have outlined I would have rated our experience 5 stars. We will definitely go back since this restaurant showed they truly care about their customer's experience. More
