Not sure why this restaurant is so popular. Maybe because Warrenton doesn't have many choices for good places to dine. I have been to Claire's several times since moving here in 2013. Each time the food has been exceptional with my only reservation being the consistency of the crab soup. Not soup at all, more like a paste. Tasty but... More

Went to celebrate anniversary. The she crab soup was wonderful. Good beer selection. Our meals were well prepared ...fllet mignon which was so tender. The coffee and dessert were great too. I'd definitely go back for a special occasion.

On way back from a trip, stopped by Warrenton. Directed to Claire's for cocktails and dinner. The manager of the restaurant, Emmett - what a wonderful welcome! Emmett made us feel truly comfortable and came to check on us several times to make sure all was well. The waiter, Louis, was a hoot. Very funny and very knowledgeable. We sat... More

Stopped for a Saturday lunch and enjoyed a very good one on the outdoor patio. We shared the lettuce wraps and fried oysters. Both were excellent as was the service. Very good wine list and friendly hostess. Will certainly be back. The old train depot makes a perfect home for this casual dining spot.

We stopped in on Saturday evening about Six PM with no reservations, we were told there was no room in the station except for the bar or a small table for two they could stretch to seat four. We were about to leave when Emmett came up with a great solution. He said if we could finish dinner by 7:15,we... More

We ate there recently for the second time and invited dome friends from Austria. Again the food was excellent. Our Austrian, friends who are very much into wines, commented on two things about the wine list. First, they thought the wine list did not match up with the excellent food. Second, they have been very impressed with Virginia wines and... More

upscale dining in the downtown district of this great rural town. Food was very nicely prepared and presented, tasted superb, and the service was as good as any I have experienced.

We stopped in because of the great reviews on here and were not disappointed at all!!! It is a place where most guests were dressed nicely but we were in shorts and flip flops so I requested outdoor seating and I'm so glad I did!!! It felt like I was at home in my backyard...if my backyard was gorgeous! :)... More
