Brookville is an excellent spot to satisfy a bacon addiction. Great food and some of the best chicken and waffles I've ever had in my life, although I'm not sure how often they're on the menu(this was during restaurant week).

Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. We did the $65 tasting menu. The food that we got was not worth that much. It should have been more like a $30 menu. First course was a piece of bread with cream cheese on top. One would think that for $65 you would just get a piece of bread with the meal, not make it a course. Second course were creamed green beans. Third course was the most interesting, some sort of zucchini cake with maple syrup. Entree was the half chicken with lettuce shared between the 2 of us. And the last course was a slice of pie. Nothing was very original or interesting. Very bland. I like the concept of the restaurant and eat all organic at home, but I felt like I could have made this same food myself. We didn't even get descriptions of what we were eating for some of the courses. After spending over $250 for dinner, drinks and tip we were still hungry and went over to C & O restaurant and got much better food. We had also gone to The Ivy Inn restaurant the night before (which we had heard was very fancy) and got much better food and drinks for about $100 less.... Brookville was just a huge disappointment and we were actually angry that we wasted our hard earned money here.

This place is great. The bloody mary's are the best in Va I have had. The place has a great atmosphere and decor. The portions are big. The service is great and the tables and chairs are very comfortable. The staff was fantastic. We can't wait to go back.

Some of the best and most memorable meals I've enjoyed in Charlottesville have been at Brookville. The menu is creative and seasonal. The service is welcoming without being overbearing. It's a top notch dining experience - without the pretension that is becoming (unfortunately) more common today.

Brookville is a wonderfully cozy little restaurant upstairs on the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville. They make one of best burgers in town! I highly recommend Brookville, particularly for special occasions as they can be a bit pricey.

My wife and I found this restaurant last week, while walking along the pedestrian mall. Since it is upstairs, it is easy to miss. Very glad we did not miss it. The food was wonderful. The pork belly was amazing and the braised rabbit outstanding. The service was great and to top it off, the bacon/chocolate chip cookie for dessert was to die for. It is freshly baked when it is ordered, so it takes a few extra minutes, but well worth the wait. The chairs were about the most comfortable that I have ever sat in at a restaurant. I definitely give this restaurant a 5!

I went to Brookville for the second time a few nights ago. I hate to write a poor review, but I was absolutely not impressed. In general the food seemed heavy handed. The amuse bouche was some cased andouille sausage with mustard, but the sausage didn't really have any flavor -- maybe it should have been uncased and put on a cracker or something. The corn muffins with honey butter we had were very nice. My tomato salad had delicious ingredients, but there lacked salt and the cream ended up soaking away the flavor of the dish. My wife's burger was cooked properly, but over-flavored. I couldn't really taste the flavor of the meat and seemed like it was cooked in too much fat. My crispy pork belly was not crispy. The fat was not rendered, and the meat lacked flavor. If I had to guess the pork belly was prepared too quickly. Also, the cabbage and thousand island dressing seemed a little to heavy for a summer menu in Virginia, but it was my fault for choosing this item. Overall the food was not up to the bar that we experienced in our first visit, which is a shame because the atmosphere is nice, the service friendly, and the prices reasonable.
