My husband and I go to Claire's for our birthday and anniversary dinners every year. We have been celebrating here for the past 9 years and will celebrate our 10th anniversary dinner in August. We start with a Cosmo martini and every dish after that is always amazing. The service is impeccable and friendly. The food never disappoints whether it... More

Claire's at The Depot is a restaurant that is consistent in high quality: food, service, bar, cleanliness, atmosphere. The owner is a hand's-on restauranteur in a good way. Situated in a converted railroad station, The Depot is a Warrenton staple. Order what you like. It will be served to your liking with professionalism. I would take friends to The Depot... More

I make a weekly visit to Claire's for work or fun. It's always great! The service is top notch, and the food is delicious. I like having specials to consider, but I have a hard time overlooking my favorites - the calamari, beet and goat cheese salad and fried green tomatoes/crab cake small plate.

All is in the title. Product very well cooked, tasty and delicious... But, because there is a but. It is too expensive. .. $116 for 2 cocktails and two soda, with 2 salmon risotto and half a chicken. Nothing else to add...

This is a fabulous restaurant. The food is innovative and of excellent quality, the atmosphere is beautiful. It was a destination for us; I came from the DC area and my friend drove up from Richmond. Warrenton downtown is quite nice, and this is the best addition to downtown Orange and I've seen in a long time.

We are traveling from the Midwest and didn't realize that it was a rather expensive menu, especially with a picky teenager with us. Very elegant. Delicious but limited menu. Charming decor and sophisticated. Table clothes, water and tea glasses. Children can't appreciate it so leave them with a sitter.

Just popped in for a quick lunch in this really pretty restaurant in Warrenton. It has a great choice of dishes in the menu and the food was beautifully cooked and well presented. It's really peaceful and nicely decorated. Definitely worth going to if you are in the area.

We enjoyed the outdoor seating at Claire's and their beautiful gardens and shaded patio. The fried tomato BLT was delicious and the wait staffwas very sweet, attentive and provided a recommendation when asked. She also provide me fresh mint from their garden when I requested it for my water. Our visit was overshadowed when the wait staff did not bring... More
