We have never written a review of Duners since we lived about 2 miles away for almost 15 years and were regular patrons. We left the immediate are almost 5 years ago and recently had the opportunity to be back in town and have dinner...More

Our go-to restaurant for fine dining west of Charlottesville. Ten minutes from UVA. They don't take reservations so many locals show up 6-6:30pm to get a table. They have a nice bar while waiting for a table.

Just in the middle of the road, a great restaurant, excellent food, cozy atmosphere and very good service!

Wonderful meal a little off the beaten path for Charlottesville but worth the drive. Very attentive staff. The highlight was the food! I don't think I can even do justice to a description of our appetizer but I will try. There were 4-5 large shrimp...More

Even though we had to wait at the bar, we enjoyed a few apps and drinks for our party of six- calamari, scallop,and oysters. Once seated the service was excellent, thanks Rebecca. Everyone loved their entrees including: lamb, ribeye, flank steak and salmon.

The food is excellent and the service is good. I only gave 4 stars because the atmosphere is crowded and noisy, both of which irritate me.

Everyone loved the food at Duner's. The menu is always changing, they have several options for every palette, and the portions are very generous (as they should be for entrees that average around $30). I would caution that the kitchen has a heavy hand on...More

We like the fish here. It always seems to satisfy. I had the halibut and my wife had the trout. Both well matched with veggies and carb. Not really a fan of the bread at Duner's, I think they could upgrade this aspect. Wine's by...More

We recently visited Duners again. Looks like it wouldn't be good on the outside but don't let the outside fool you. The service and food are very good and each meal includes an excellent salad. The only criticism I would give it this time is...More

It was our last day in Charlottesville, so the four of us decided to go somewhere nice for dinner. We had reservations for 7:00 and were seated immediately. The restaurant was very busy and loud. It was difficult to have a normal conversation, as it...More

I did not see any young children (2-6) there, but call ahead and ask. The issue is do you want to wait with a young cranky child if they are child friendly. I did see teens and that would be fine. I sure that younger... More
