“Total Class”
Reviewed 29 August 2011

Duner's is where the real money and class in Charlottesville goes to eat. Fellow diners are as likely to be dressed in Sunday best as they are a pair of cheap hiking shorts and $50K in diamonds. Part horsey set, part tenured UVA faculty. Elegantly simple exterior and interior. Creative but not pretentious menu changes often. Full bar, good wine list. No reservations and it starts to fill up shortly after opening. Super place.

“Busy and lively with good food”
Reviewed 9 May 2011

This place is seriously popular with the locals and you could see why. Good choice on the menu and fresh produce. A lively ambience in a pleasant if somewhat plain room which was much better than the place's exterior look. Good starters and since we had not had steaks on our trip to the States we enjoyed two very succulent rib eyes cooked just as we each asked. Only downside was the very small selection of wines by the glass.

“Just one word; fabulous”
Reviewed 2 September 2010

My husband and I went for my birthday dinner. As we were recommended by a friend, we weren't sure what to expect. It's a small place that fills up quickly. We were lucky enough to get a table as soon as we got there. The staff was very friendly and the food was fabulous. From the appetizer to the dessert, we were both impressed. From now on, when we are in Charlottesville, we will be visiting Duners.

“Surprisingly diverse menu”
Reviewed 6 May 2010

Excellent selection of sea food and meat dishes with a creative flair. A few minutes outside of downtown, but very convenient if you are staying at Boars Head Inn

“Classic Country Inn Farmhouse Dining”
Reviewed 10 April 2009

Superb farmhouse dining with sophisticated local fresh cuisine. White tableclothes but very casual, friendly, and comfortable atmosphere. Simply glorious food. Great wine list, with a selection of half bottles, one of our favorites.
