Chef Warren's

4.9
4.9
1039 Reviews
$50 and over
French American
Neighborhood French-inspired bistro featuring an ever-changing fusion menu that keeps you coming back to try the things you didn’t have room for.
Marianne’s organic garden helps supply Warren’s kitchen with his beloved fresh produce & both are actively involved in the local food movement.
The ambiance is fusion as well - bistro style rather than “fine dining” - that is at once classic French and comfortable with an open kitchen so foodies can watch the work in progress. Art work is a mix of Mucha prints and Warren’s photography. Music is quirky.
Nightly wine by the glass specials, carefully curated wine list and a delightful cocktail menu round out drinks offerings.
Neither high chairs nor booster seats are available.
Reservations are for a two hour time period.
Classic Parisian style sidewalk seating available.
Warren and his wife Marianne have spent the last twenty-three years delighting diners with their worldly cuisine & genuine hospitality.

    Excellent ambience. Excellent service. Excellent cocktails. Amazing food. I had the ostrich, wild boar and quail, which was incredible. The wife had the striped bass and said it was the best she had ever ate. Will return in the future.

    We have eaten at Chef Warren's a number of times and the food is always excellent. Seems like he has added several new younger wait staff members. Good job. They bring a breathe of fresh air. Particularly the "Jersey Girl".

    The attention from Jess, Warren and his wife, which I did not get her name, was so friendly, prompt, helpful. Etc, etc… this establishment was suggested to us many times over the past year and a half. But we just didn’t find ourselves there. We are so happy that we chose to go there Saturday night, and were able to find a table with little lead time. The wine that was suggested for us and the helpful tips for which entrées we should order we’re all very helpful. We will definitely be back!

    Chef Warren’s was suggested to us by a friend who has lived in the area for many years. We showed up an hour early for our reservation so we were seated at the counter with lots of attention from the manager and a server to bring us drinks and an appetizer. It was terrific to sit at the counter and watch “the show” in the kitchen. The food looked so good we had difficulty deciding what to order. I had the duck and my husband had the shrimp and scallops. Both were delicious with a nice presentation. The person next to us had the steak special and raved about it. Dessert was amazing as well. Chef Warren came over and chatted with us once things slowed down. We will definitely go back and highly recommend the restaurant.

    Food & service were exceptionally good, as usual. The owners run this place, manage the staff and interact with the customers. I've lived in several states, traveled to most, and been overseas multiple times. I've been to some good places but none better than Chef Warrens last evening.

    We enjoyed our 9th wedding anniversary at Chef Warrens and they did not disappoint. From the moment you walk in you get the home comfort feeling. They decorated our table and were curious to hear about our anniversary and how we met. Food and drinks are top notch. We were both impressed with the selections of cocktails and the dinner specials were unreal. 100% will go back. If you are on the fence about it, get off and book!

    Wonderful as always! Chef and his staff were attentive and the food was excellent. It feels like we are not customers, but friends. They made sure I had several gluten free options - even dessert. The black bean soup was flavorful and perfect for cooler weather. The beef was fork tender and the swordfish was cooked to perfection. Chocolate mousse for dessert, prepared and served deconstructed from the flour pastry shell for me, but hubby got the shell as well.

    Chef Warren's is an excellent place for any special occasion. The staff was warm and attentive. The menu items all looked incredible and their wine/cocktail list is expansive. We really enjoyed the wild mushrooms on sourdough and deep fried brussels as an appetizer. Shea was our server and did a fantastic job!
