I dined here once, and never again. The food was so-so and definitely overpriced, the service was terrible, and I felt very cramped in the dining room. We were hoping to have a leisurely dinner but we wanted to get out of there as quickly as possible almost as soon as we were seated. I have not met anyone who has had a good experience at Northern Exposure. There are so many fabulous restaurants in Charlottesville, don't choose this one!
