To our regret, several years passed before we were able to get back to Claire's after very satisfying visits. Returning today, we found that--to our great surprise and unlike so many other places--the restaurant has retained (or perhaps even improved) all its attractive qualities. The menu remains sufficiently varied, the simple dishes we chose (fish and chips; crab sandwich) were... More

Went there with my wife for our 23rd anniversary. She had the filet with French fries, I had the cowboy steak and replaced the baked potato with French Fries, we both had the crab soup. The soups and my wife steak were delicious my steak was good but too salty. When I told the waitress she said the saltiness was... More

So the rankings had just come out in our little hometown magazine for Best of Warrenton (Virginia). We discovered that Claire's at the Depot was rated as the number one restaurant. So after work, the wife and I decided to check it out. It's a cute little place with a lovely garden and, although a little noisy for our taste,... More

Our family spent the weekend in Warrenton for a family wedding at the Morais Vineyard. My daughter selected this restaurant from the internet and we went to celebrate my birthday with our immediate family. It was one of the most memorable meals I have ever had. Claire came out to our table and introduced herself. The server had spoken highly... More

We enjoyed our lunch at Claire's at the Depot in Warrenton today. Beautiful atmosphere - and delicious food. I ordered the shrimp and gouda grits and my husband ordered the fried green tomato BLT. Just yummy!! Delighted that we made the decision to have lunch there. This is definitely a place to enjoy again - even though we live about... More

Went here for a family birthday celebration. There were 7 of us and they seated us at a round table in the corner that was perfect. I had a chorizo/apple omelette that was very tasty. If I had to make any suggestion, I'd hope that the chef would leave the apple pieces a little larger next time. There were too... More

We stopped in for happy hour to try their appetizers and check out happy hour drink deals. They do offer some nice deals and the food we tried was really tasty, but limited. They really need to add one or two more food items to their happy hour. The drinks were made nicely and the service at the bar was... More

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.
