My wife and I had dinner at Chef Warren's last night and it was a wonderful experience. She had a crab and corn soup and I started with the chilled crab tacos. Both were delicious and we would want to order them again upon our next visit if the are still on the menu. As for entrees, my wife had... More

Went to Chef Warrens last saturday night. It was busy and we didn't have a reservation, but the lovely hostess got us in. We started with Martini's (Pomegranate, and Watermelon).which were good sizes and very refreshing (it was 90 degrees outside). I started with the country pate which was one of the best I have ever eaten (if you like... More

Open kitchen, delicious food, dedicated service, all in an environment that could be in any European city. Ate over the holiday weekend, so it was very, very busy. Marianne, the hostess/owner, gives a fun description of wine by the glass specials, even to one who doesn't drink. Sarah, our waitress, was sweet and took the time to ask the chef... More

Visiting from Pennsylvania, came in with friends at the last minute on Saturday of 4th of July weekend. Had a delightfully friendly and helpful waitress - especially since we couldn't narrow down our choices. Our table ordered French Onion Soup - probably the best I've had in years, and Lobster Rangoon to share to start (if we lived here it... More

Trying to find the proper words to describe how poor the staff and food is at chef warrens is difficult. Words like profound and exquisite is what you might expect but this is not the case. Vile people and terribly prepared food is what you should expect if you decide to go to this establishment. I will briefly describe each... More

Tried this restaurant for the very 1st time, and yes BTW the last time. Horrible service. Waited 45 minutes for appetizer. 1 hour+ for entrée. Noise level intolerable. Couldn't hear the person sitting next to me. Food gets less than 1 star. French Onion soup or whatever you want to call it, not edible. Filet of beef so tough I... More

The restaurant has great atmosphere and the menu seems to hold promise, but the end result left our taste buds unsatisfied. Bland Mahi Mahi, cold tacos (They said they were supposed to be served that way, but cold mushroom tacos? Really?) and "classic" escargot without garlic. The waitstaff was unapologetic.

This is a favorite restaurant of our hosts and they chose it for their anniversary dinner celebration. There were 26 of us and we thought they put on a lovely dinner for us all.

Was there recently on a quick golf getaway. Only three tables taken. Pate app was very good as was the French onion soup. Sweet potato soup was a big letdown...not a lot of flavor. Most had the steak and fries....nothing memorable...I tried the kangaroo...somewhat like boar but had a bite that didn't work for me. When Chef Warren is in... More

Chef is owner - buys from local farmers. Supports local charities and events. Hostess is wife and owner, Fabulous food and wine menu. Food prepared in open to the diners kitchen. No smoke or other distractions from kitchen. Lovely room, small and intimate. Great for special occasions. Fine dining and worth every penny! Not to be missed.
