Claire's at the Depot
Amazing food in a beautiful setting, the experience was diminished only slightly by slow service due to an overtasked, but very knowledgeable and polite server. The salads were flavorful. The scallops and the stuffed pork chops were prepared perfectly and hit on the flavor profiles we were looking for. Good wine list. I would definitely go back, but would hope not to compete with three large groups for a servers attention again.
we always celebrate special occasions at Claire's, the atmosphere is always just what you need, quiet, intimate, the wait staff is prompt, friendly, knowledgeable, the food is excellent, what more could you ask for in a restaurant.
Great dining experience but the service initially was a bit slow for me. I felt our server had too many tables but it wasn’t a huge issue. The dinner food was good but not great My dish was the blackened scallops and grits and I found the grits and the spinach pretty tasteless. The scallops were amazing so that made the meal awesome but would have like more flavor in the spinach or grits.
There aren't enough good words to describe Claire's! My two friends and I had a 1 PM Friday lunch reservation. I showed up at 1245 and was promptly seated. The owner kindly greeted me at my table and said "You must be waiting for friends. Enjoy your lunch." When I accidently spilled my glass of water, three different employees descended on the mess, removed and replaced all the linen and silverware, and dried the floor. Excellent. Our appetizers came quickly as did our main courses. All delicious and prepared to perfection. My medium rare duck salad was mouth watering. The three of us engaged in a calm but energetic political discussion for two hours. The waiter even came over and provided a really good joke. The only problem we had - - - not surprisingly - - - was parking. Claire's was packed. Luckily the three of us were able to get spaces just as other patrons were leaving. Reservations for lunch, especially on Fridays, is very recommended. We will be back at Claire's numerous times to explore the menu over and over again.
Lovely restaurant with a great vibe, excellent service from Sherry, wonderful food and a very pleasant ambiance in this converted railway station. Highly recommended.
If you use Open Table to make your reservation they put you at a table in the bar. Completely unacceptable. Great visit except for that. I did make them move us to the dining room, which is very nice.
Love this restaurant - highly recommend for food, serice and atmosphere.
Food and service always great. We took some friends from DC and they enjoyed it as well.
My sister and I and a friend enjoyed celebrating my birthday on Wednesday, January 15 from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM or so. We all had the Jack Daniels Shrimp which is ALWAYS DELICIOUS! Our server Sherry was wonderful...very attentive and pleasant! We love coming to Claire's especially for birthday celebrations. I loved the bread pudding. Superb!
Brunch menu was excellent with a marvelous choice of entrées. Lori our waitress was extremely helpful and I eligible and very pleasant. The entire brunch was very enjoyable
First time for brunch there. It was wonderful!! The meal was delicious and service superb!
Claire's is a lovely restaurant, small town classy, a little pricey, but well worth the trip to Warrenton. Ask for Sherry, she did a terrific job waiting on our table.
Usually great service but the kitchen had some sort of problem that night. It toke forever to get our food.
Best food, look forward to dining with you again!
As usual the food and service there was wonderful.
Absolutely! Best restaurant with the best food in Warrenton!
Very cozy atmosphere. Couple of gas fireplaces. All the staff is very friendly and on top of their game. Their crab cakes were very good. A lot of lump crab with little stuffing. Highly recommend.
I recommend Claire's highly! The food was delicious. The service very attentive and it's a beautiful atmosphere.
Never disappointed with Claire’s. Food was delicious. Service was fabulous. Lewis is fabulous.
Keep up the good work only place in warrenton worth the trip. I love food and know how to cook so Claire’s is to my standard. Thanks Claire
The staff was amazing. They read my request for a nice table and knew we would be lingering over the meal. I loved our table and while staff was attentive, they respected our desire to talk at length.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant to family and friends.
roast beef sandwich the best ever. the atmosphere is lovely
We were fortunate to be seated for a reservation early, and the service was spot on! There was a nice fire going with beautiful holiday decorations and the staff was quite friendly. Very accommodating.
Sunday Brunch at Claire's never disappoints! We wanted some modifications to the standard menu and they were easily accommodated by our server/kitchen staff. This is one of my favorite places, never had a bad meal here.
Excellent meals: carefully prepared and elegantly presented, tasty, and they did not assume I should be dieting! Attentive but not intrusive server; very responsive. An upscale ambience that was also a little rustic and interesting. Make a reservation; they have a busy loyal clientele.
Great as always!!
Everything was delicious and the server was very good. My elderly father doesn’t hear well and our server made an extra effort so Dad could hear the specials. It’s a bit pricey but we will recommend it and are repeat customers. Thanks for a nice evening!
The good was excellent! Nice atmosphere and service.
Claire's is a wonderful asset to Warrenton. The food is consistently great. Service always good even on busy nights. Thank you for another lovely dinner. Brava, Brava
My daughter and I had a great time!!!! The food was good...no, delicious! We can’t wait to go back!!!!
Wonderful Christmas Eve lunch with family ... Claire’s never disappoints!
We have chosen to have many special celebrations at Claire's over the years and until this last visit, it has been wonderful. I was very disappointed. It was Christmas Eve so I'm sure they were crazy busy but it was not the great Claire's experience that we have enjoyed many times. It was my mother-in-laws 90th bday so it was a big deal to say the least. The food was OK but they forgot about our appetizers and brought those after we were eating out main. When I made the reservations, I told them about the 90th bday and asked them if anything could be done to acknowledge the occasion....they said they would bring a special bday dessert out and that they would do that for her and they would take care of it. Her bday dessert never came. She wasn't expecting anything so at least she wasn't disappointed. We will definitely still go back but I think we will steer clear on major holidays when it's really busy.
Always excellent, our “go to” place for exceptional food and service!
We been at Claire's on several occasions. Normally there are three or four in our party. The garden room is beautiful and the bar area is much better than the average restaurant bar area. The help is excellent and extremely knowledgeable and the food is outstanding
We had our annual friends Christmas lunch - and Claire’s was excellent as always!
Lovely place for a special meal in a charming setting. Outstanding service. Delicious food arrived quickly. Only downside was the produce. Fruit and tomatoes out of season, mushy and flavorless, detracted from the otherwise delicious dishes.
Food is consistently fabulous and well worth the money
Had Sunday brunch. Had eggs benedict, and it was excellent. Server was friendly and very attentive. Nice atmosphere. We find all their staff to be very pleasant and outgoing. Highly recommend.
Good food and well taken care of.
Thank you to everyone at Claire’s. We had a great time. Great place for an anniversary dinner.
