We recently visited for my wife's birthday. Big plus is that they recently accepted reservations which means we will visit much more frequently. Service was very good as was the food. The only potential negative is that the place is small so it can be loud if all the tables are packed especially with larger groups.

A very special local gem. Food is outstanding, service is attentive and atmosphere is lively and fun. Don't hesitate to add Duner's to your list of great C'ville restaurants. It is on the top of our list.

If it is good food you want, don't miss Duner's. The restaurant is located in the center check in area of an old motor court. The motel rooms have been converted to boutique shops and this center area is the restaurant. The seating area is fairly tight and consequently noisy when crowded which is most of the time. The decor... More

Gnocchi with duck confit, fried oysters, lamb chops - all perfectly prepared - then rockfish with a fantastic sauce and served with a pumpkin and mushroom tart that would make you slap your mother. It worked! Chef used a crust recipe that was thin, flakey and held the filling. Quite possibly something she learned to make from her grandmother. Our... More

Duner's was our first meal when we moved to Cville 11 years ago and we still do take out monthly. They recently got a new chef who has added some interested twists/flavors to the menu -- Asian and Latin influences. The base menu is the same each night -- chicken, salmon, beef, pork, duck, trout etc....but they frequently change the... More

Every time we go to Duner's I wonder why we don't come here at least once a week. The menu is constantly changing and the food is always interesting, beautifully prepared and delicious. We have been coming here for many years and I can honestly say we have never gotten a bad meal. They also have a very good wine... More

My wife and I arrived at the last minute without a reservation on a gloomy Friday night and were welcomed in. Sat at the bar for 20 minutes or so, enjoying a very well made martini. A very energetic crowd of friendly regulars made for an easy wait. My wife had the duck breast which was very good, house salad... More

This restaurant is a bit of a drive from Charlottesville. But for those who want to get out of town, or who live between Charlottesville and Crozet, this is really the best dining option around. An imaginative menu, well-prepared, with good service. It can get very crowded at dinner time (and they do not take reservations). But if you're willing... More

Great vibe at this local hot spot, that has been serving customers for more than 30 years. My wife and I both ordered the salmon. Hers was cooked to perfection, mine quite the contrary. My salmon was a slightly larger piece, and obviously grilled same amount of time as my wife's, and therefore undercooked in the middle. Unfortunately, the waitress... More
