Great meal and service

My husband and I went to Claire's many years ago after moving to Warrenton. I recall it was really nice, but we stopped going when they went to catering only and haven't come back until this past weekend. We have really been missing out!

I went here with friends for dinner and found that the service and food were both spectacular. Warrenton is a fairly small town and there are a couple of decent chain restaurants, but this is the only place I'd recommend for if you are looking for an upscale destination. They had a handful of craft beers, including a few local... More

Found Claire's online searching for a nice place to eat before dancing to our favorite swing dance band, King Teddy. We sat in the bar area because the dining room was booked until late in the evening. Obviously, it is a popular place. We ordered the firecracker calamari and the Asian beef lettuce wraps. The servings were generous and very... More

My Red Hats group picked Clare's for our monthly outing. We were pleasantly surprised by the food and the service. I recommended Clare's to my son and he took his wife on their date night out. He couldn't wait to email me how great it was and thanked me for letting him know. Thanks Clare's for making me look good.

Stopped here while traveling through Warranton, VA for lunch.....a wonderful find! Especially loved their She Crab Soup.....I had the Green Tomato Sandwich...yum! My wife had the Cornmeal Breaded Oysters.....good wine list. Historic site.....nicely appointed ....Colonel Mosby (of Mosby's Rangers) was supposedly attack here after the Civil War for befriending General Grant.

I met some friends for lunch and everything was perfect. The risotto was delicious. It was crowded during a weekday, so it would be best to make a reservation.

Caesar salad with salmon was exquisite. Beautiful outdoor setting in a water garden. Make sure to call ahead early for dinner reservations. Only issue maitre de was a tad snooty

Driving through the area so we thought we would check Trip Advisor for a breakfast spot. We could not have been more pleased. The food was so fresh and delicious and the service was perfect! Can't wait to drive through at dinner =)

When they first opened it was all abotu the food; then there were renovations and it seemd to be all about the decor...now the focus is back on the food and customer service. Try a couple of the delicious happy hour snacks such as... More

Wandered into this quaint restaurant after a tip from a local vendor. We did not have a reservation on a Friday night, but were able to get a seat for two off the bar area. We were early, but slowly the place filled up and was packed. This was a sign we were in for something good. Our meals were... More
