I visit Claires about once a month. It's great for a dinner date (get the fire place) or a business meeting (nice round 7-8 person table). They have excellent bread, will customize food selections, and offer reasonable prices. We do a lot of business dinners here because the service and food are excellent. There is usually a special for the... More

Everything was great; the food, the service and atmosphere. We had a couple of appetizers (tuna and calamari), a couple of salads (I don't remember which ones) and sea scallops for main course. We tried the wine specials. One red from a local winery was very nice. This is my first review on tripadvisor. The meal was so good it... More

Out driving one day; decided to stop at Claire's for lunch. A very pleasant surprise. Hubby had a breakfast burrito, and I had the catch of the day. We both thought our meals were superb. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and exuberant about the food. If you find yourself in Warrenton, and have time for a leisurely meal, consider Claire's.

The four of us had deferent entrees and we enjoyed all of them. There were sufficient choices and some quite different. The portions were sufficient and there a nice wine selection. The service was excellent and attentive. The atmosphere was very nice with a few tables on the small patio garden.

We have been to Claire's twice. The food is very good. The only thing is that the menu is not very extensive. Maybe it is because we were there twice within a couple of months but we have decided to wait a little before going back. I have read that they have a new chef, I am looking forward to... More

Having recently moved to the area, we have been disappointed in the restaurants. Claires was a wonderful surprise. The food was amazing - filet that melted in your mouth. Fresh ingredients were even used for the cocktails.

We were on a road trip and wanted to stop in a small town for dinner. We choose Warrenton and Claire's after searching online. We were probably underdressed but they seated us at a table in the bar area which wasn't a problem. Claire's has a very nice atmosphere, which should be expected since the prices are a little on...

Wow, I love Claire's at the Depot. It's quaint and the food is unique and delectable. We were there for Father's Day Brunch with family from Indiana. While they were a bit skeptical of the menu due to their undiscovered palates, they were quickly made believers. We started with Claire's Famous She Crab Soup and were blown away by its... More
