A pleasant surprise in a town whose top-rated restaurant is Chik-fil-A

We moved out into the Virginia countryside a year ago, leaving behind all the great restaurants near our former home in the inner Washington DC suburbs. So we are always looking for a great dining experience withing 30 miles or so. We tried Claire's for my husband's birthday. It's one of the... read more

We enjoyed a very lovely dinner at Claire's. The She Crab Soup, the beet and goat cheese salad and the special fish entrees were delicious. The service was very good. It was particularly nice to sit on the back patio.

She crab soup is my wife's favorite. I love their tuna won ton appetizer, calamari appetizer and mixed grill entree. Patio seating is the way to go.

Since moving to Warrenton I've always heard Claire's was one of the top restaurants in town. I can now confirm the rumors are right. My wife took me here for my birthday and it was an excellent night in an otherwise so so week. The atmosphere tends to e a little noisy, but our server provided some of the best... More

We enjoyed lunch here yesterday. Beyond our best expectations! All of our entrees, the cod on tostados special, the shrimp & Gouda grits and the quiche, plus our ever so special beet salads were all presented with perfection & so delicious. Our waitress, Sherry, was attentive and very pleasant in spite of the restaurant being ever so busy, serving about... More

I am not sure why I haven't posted a review of Claires before, but I have to admit that this is one of my favorite restaurants in all of Virginia...for both lunch and dinner. If you have a fondness for "she-crab" soup, Claire's makes one of the best! Lunch menus are varied and seem to change with the seasons. Dinners... More

We always make a reservation since there are 7 of us and we are always seated immediately. My wife and I eat out frequently and can say that this is a big plus!!

This is a lovely special occasion restaurant for dinner as well as a great spot for lunch. The food is just really delicious- it is hard to decide what to order, it all sounds so good- and you can tell that Claire is still very involved in this restaurant. It is a local favorite!

My wife and I had dinner last Friday night at Claire's. It was wonderful. The wine list, although short, has several excellent choices. We had a bottle of Malbec with my wife's salmon and my pork chop. The food was as good as the wine. A mixed berry crisp with ice cream was the perfect ending to a great meal.... More
