Fine dining for lunch

Our lunch at Claire's was more upscale than we expected, but that was fine. My roast beef sandwich with au jus was delicious, lots of roast beef on a lightly toasted bun; however, the aus jus was rather bland and could use a little spicing up. The accompanying french fries were as good as I have... read more

We drove into Old Town Warrenton without a plan for lunch and stumbled upon this wonderful restaurant housed in an old train depot. The hostess was very welcoming and told us she "only" had seating in the tavern but this is the original brick depot building and we thought this was actually the best place to sit. Service was friendly,... More

A perfect ending to a travel day: walking into Claire’s at the Depot, a beautiful restaurant in historic Warrenton with mellow brick walls, a pleasant buzz among the diners and, best of all, excellent food. It was a restaurant that was both classy and welcoming, run with attention to detail but also friendliness by the manager and her staff.. After... More

We met friends in this new to us restaurant in old town Warrenton, Va. It was a great find and we will go back often. The food is excellent, wonderfully presented and graciously served in a very pleasing setting. We ate in the garden room which is a warm and sunny room overlooking a small patio for outside dining.

First time at Claire's....the evening's special of twin filets topped with pork belly and shrimp was delicious! Nice selection of wines by the glass. The she crab soup was very good but not the best ever, even though several other reviewers touted it as such. Creme brulee for dessert was awesome.

Stopped on our way to NC....fantastic lunch. Coconut Shrimp to die for. Risotto among the best I've ever had. Will definitely work in a return trip for dinner!

This is my second review of this 5 Star establishment because I wanted to find out if the service and other menu items would be as delicious as the last time. My meal and service was once again outstanding! No disappointments, another culinary delight and the meal was as tasty if not better as I've previously had. My friend and... More

I think Claire's is a great restaurant (food, location and . They gave great staff and a friendly environment. I dye think they are becoming more focused on making money than keep their service and quality up. This seem more so since other restaurants in the area have had issues. Maybe with more competition from the New Bridge they will... More
