Inspired cooking by Alex Montiel who has cooked with the best in the country. Good wine list and an amazing array of choices! The meals are not only lovely to look at but the flavors are fresh and creative. Given the high prices in Charlottesville...More

Alex opened the Brasserie on a night they are normally closed, in order for our company to hold a seminar. The food and service were excellent, and the flexibility shown by the staff to efficiently and quietly serve through presentations was remarkable. Highly recommend for...More

Brasserie Montiel is a wonderful place for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. His soups and appetizers (cheese lollipops!) are great. His roasted chicken with mashed potatoes is my favorite (and I wish I knew what he does with the broccoli to make it so yummy)....More

Consistently good food well presented - French, Cajun and Creole influences - with very reasonable prices for Charlottesville. Chef Montiel has already built a reputation for La Cocina del Sol (two locations: downstairs from Brasserie Montiel and in Crozet) - a more informal, Mexican style...More
