Fusion / Eclectic
Neighborhood bistro that keeps you coming back to try the things you didn’t have room for .... Marianne’s organic garden supplies Warren’s kitchen with his beloved fresh produce and both are actively involved in the local food movement.

Chef Warren’s serves fusion cuisine - with a firm base in classic French.

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 eclectic, quiet to enable conversations in a high ceilinged room, and NEVER smooth jazz.

Marianne runs nightly wine by the glass specials that allow you to try lesser known wine varietals, and the staff serve up an inventive artisanal cocktail menu.

Warren and his wife Marianne have spent the last twenty-two years delighting diners with their worldly cuisine and genuine hospitality.

My Scottish Salmon was among the best salmon I've ever had. Very attentive service, but not intrusive.

Great menu. Excellent specials. We always enjoy Chef Warren’s. I love the fact he is selling bags of take out bolonase sauce
My server, Mary, was outstanding! My only suggestion is the wine by the glass selection is very limited and weak

Excellent. From the salad to the entree and then French pressed coffee everything was wonderful. The cheesy fries that come with their hanger steak are out of this world.

Food was superb, as always. Marianne and Chef Warren create an atmosphere that is at once intimate and convivial. Service is consistently excellent. You can’t go wrong with either Mary or Jess!

Appropriate distancing. Food was well prepared and seasoned appropriately. Service was prompt. Not intrusive. Fair wine list. Chocolate mousse for dessert or you are off the reservation.

Wonderful experience for a special occasion, pandemic and all. We loved this spot but it’s just as good now (five months in to corona virus). Menu still innovative, ingredients fresh, and excellent service. Nice wine list as well! Even though it was August we had to have the French onion soup and it did not disappoint. Entrees of Filet mignon were prepared at perfect temp and the accompaniments were delightful. Love the ambience of this spot and we will always return when in the area. Their new cookies you can get to go are also wickedly tempting!

Quaint semi-formal restaurant. Formal enough for a nice date, but nothing over-the-top. Food was delicious, and cooked perfectly. Staff was very personable and perfect level of attentiveness. Will definitely go back in the future. One of our local favorites now.

The food and service are ALWAYS great. The owners saw that we had left our dog in the car (windows down, end of day, not scary hot) and she offered to bring him in! He chilled in the office with a water bowl, servers pet him...
The Jeep is his safe space, but he just got concierge doggy care while we ate.

Chef Warren’s is fully back. We lived off of them during the COVID shutdown...both for take out and “raiding their pantry.” It was nice to see them open again as a restaurant. For those worried about dining out in this environment, Chef Warren’s does a great job of keeping distance between tables and having staff wear masks. The food itself was excellent as usual, and they even had bacon bourbon chocolate chip cookies to go. So nice to see Chef Warren and Marianne again!

Chef Warren has presented a delicious and creative menu in a beautiful and inviting atmosphere for nearly twenty years in Southern Pines NC. A restaurant does not survive that long without consistently offering inventive and delectable cuisine. Absolutely include a reservation with Chef Warren during your visit to Southern Pines!

One of our favorites. I often order fish there as I believe they have the best selection in the area, but I had the rib eye special which was excellent: perfectly cooked to my order. The wine list is very good also but I usually end up ordering one of the off-the-list nightly offerings. Sit at the bar if you want to watch your food prepared, or at any of the very comfortable tables.

Chef Warren’s was a fantastic dining experience. The hostess was friendly and welcoming, the waiter very professional and knowledgeable, mojito was just right, and the food was simply delicious. The pecan pie is a must! The best I’ve ever had. Will definitely be visiting again and recommending to everyone who passes through.
