The Downtown Grille

The Downtown Grille, located on Charlottesville's historic downtown mall, serves only the finest in Midwestern corn-fed beef and fresh seafood, while incorporating local ingredients. The restaurant has an extensive wine list which has been honored by The Wine Spectator with the Award of Excellence every year since opening in 1999.  

The Downtown Grille's lovely architecture and warm professional staff lend a superb ambiance to an already exquisite dining experience.


We would like to inform our guests that due to the growth of Downtown Charlottesville and the Pedestrian-only Mall, parking can be tricky. 

We are located on one of the two mall crossings at 2nd Street, which you can access from Water Street. You can drop your guests off curbside, or find street parking. 

We validate for up to 2 hours at the Water Street Parking Garage. As an alternative, we recommend also trying the Market Street Parking Garage. 

Please feel free to call us if you are having trouble locating the restaurant at 434.817.7080
