Fleurie is honored to be recognized as Charlottesville's Best French Restaurant 2019 :
"It’s a source of pride and delight to see three very different takes on French fare score top honors this year, testifying to Charlottesville’s finely tuned palate and taste for diversity. Repeat winner Fleurie leads the pack with its romantic dining room, elegant seasonal presentations, and outstanding tasting menus. Exquisite desserts and an extensive wine list (also a Wine Spectator Award winner), pushes Fleurie over the top. Kudos to owner Brian Helleberg and chef de cuisine Joe Walker, whose resumé includes stints at the Inn at Little Washington and Blue Duck Tavern."
Thank you, Charlottesville!
Wine Enthusiast Magazine included Fleurie as one of its "100 Best Wine Restaurants 2018"!

We started with tea cocktails made with teas grown on high mountain tops.
This past weekend at Foxfield, our very own Valerie Claunch represented Fleurie Restaurant during the second Foxfield race. Chef Claunch presented the trophy to the jockey of the winning horse (Be Somebody).
