Easily In My Top Five Restaurants...Ever!

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... read more

I really enjoyed lunch at Claire's. Sat on the outside deck overlooking pretty landscaping and a small water feature with a caboose off to the side. I ate the peppered bacon and leek quiche with a small mixed green salad and balsamic vinaigrette. Largest slice of quiche I have ever received. Amazingly delicious. Enjoyed a lemon sorbet for dessert. I... More

Claire's is a great place for lunch. The service is outstanding, the atmosphere comfortable and the food is good. We went on a rainy Saturday at the beginning of a winery outing. We were seated immediately, overlooking the garden. The menu is not huge, but so many things looked good that we had a tough time ordering. The she crab... More

Claire's is one of our standby's in Warrenton. We go for both dinner and brunch/lunch. On our last visit, we ate outside next to one of the old train cars. Their back garden area is very nice....good landscaping and pretty strings of lights. Some of Claire's dishes lack seasoning. The gouda grits are totally flat and tasteless. The fried oyster...

We enjoyed Claire's immensely. Tuna wontons YUM! Salmon cooked to perfection. Great wine selection too. Reuben sandwich was unique and very good too!

We were on a winery tour and stopped here for lunch. What a great find for us! The place is beautiful and very interesting as it was a train depot at one time. The food is incredible! WE had an excellent server who took very good care of us. We highly recommend this restaurant for lunch - we would like... More

This is my second time at Claire's and first brunch. Make a reservation cause this place is outstanding! Great service and great food. Complimentary scones that were very good. I had the omelette special. Perfectly cooked as were potatoes. Outside courtyard seating but we sat inside. Wished I got a mimosa...next time.

I haven't had a chance to dine at Claire's since its most recent reinvention; however, it is worth a quick visit to see the new decor and have their Firecracker Calamari! This is a delicious little treat and, in and of itself, is a great reason to stop! We enjoyed several tasty appetizers during a visit with friends and really... More

While traveling back to our home we discovered Claire's at the Depot for a first rate lunch in small town Warrenton, VA. We've dined in NYC, San Fran, Chicago, DC, LA, Rome, San Paulo, Buenos Aires, and many other cities and countries, and our brunch at Claire's would compete with any of the best meals we enjoyed while on these...
