Chef Warren's

4.9

1275 Reviews
$50 and over
French American
Neighborhood French-inspired bistro featuring an ever-changing French-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-five years delighting diners with their worldly cuisine & genuine hospitality.

    The food and the service were outstanding at Chef Warren. There were some different offerings as appetizers which was a pleasant change. The place is smallish, quaint, and the staff obviously love their work. Our waitress was pleasant, personable and relaxed. Wine was poured from the bottle at the table side and the food was excellent. We will be returning.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants. It has a warm cozy, friendly atmosphere very much like the small European restaurants/bodegas. Last night I had the scallops and they were outstanding - not over cooked. The Bibb salad was also wonderful. My husband and I will be back soon. I almost hate to give a good review as it might make it difficult to get a reservation in the future!!

    Chef Warren’s is our “go to” for special events or when we just want a nice, quiet dinner in a warm atmosphere with great service and well prepared, unique dishes. Our server, Michelle, was superb (as was the entire staff) and my wife was able to modify her order (monkfish) with different sides and it was exactly as she wanted. This was my first time ordering the veal dish and it was excellent. We will definitely return, as we often have. Finally, if you have never experienced Chef Warren’s, you need to (IMHO).

    The food is amazing, great atmosphere, and the service was fantastic. It is a bit pricey but is delicious and definitely worth it. It was busy in there and a bit noisy with the other guests in the restaurant, but was still able to have a good conversation with my wife. Definitely recommend.

    The owner set the tone to create an outstanding service culture. From our server to all the other staff who helped with the service, it was outstanding. The commaraderie among the staff was evident and it showed in the service. Of course the food and presentation were excellent. We'll definitely go back.

    First, the food is impeccable and the atmosphere more than welcoming. I started with the Winter Solstice cocktail (pictured). Had the Kangaroo medallions appetizer and the foie gras terrine appetizer (pictured). Both were phenomenal. The terrine was recommended by our server, Daphne. Daphne was an absolute gem of a person. Very attentive and personable. Marianne, one of the owners, came by and personally greeted us and made recommendations on food and the wine pairing. We had the duck breast. It was cooked perfectly medium rare. It also came with a foie gras- based sausage. Never had anything quite like it. Very tasty, but definitely far more savory than a "regular" sausage/bratwurst. Recommended wine paired great. Did not have room for dessert, but Daphne recommended the flourless white chocolate cake. They also have a nice selection of after dinner drinks. There is a reason they've been in business for 26 years. They do it ALL right!!!

    Everything was absolutely amazing! It was our first dining at Chef Warrens and they did not disappoint. Our table was decorated for the celebration of our 26th wedding Anniversary. The hostess sat with us and explained how a few of the dishes are prepared by the chef and offered selections they peaked our interest in French cuisine. We were intrigued about so many of the menu options and she jumped right I. To guide us on our selections. We loved everything about the experience of dining here. The other guest dining that night were so friendly and offered menu selection ideas. We just couldn’t go wrong with whatever we ordered. The food is that good! Bravo, Chef Warren’s on providing us with a beautiful French cuisine experience and top tier hospitality.

    Extremely overpriced, small portions, slow service, mediocre food, poor drink selection. Very disappointing for $300+ dinner for 4 people, without dessert. Will not return.
    Chef Warren'sResponded on January 28, 2024
    Unlike most restaurants, we post our prices on line. The National Restaurant Association has cost of goods sold guidelines and we are right in the middle. I buy quality. Party of 4 we figure 2 1/2 hours, your table had quite a few special requests, so that does take a bit longer. If you're in a rush, please let us know. As to portion sizes, most guests have leftovers to take home. Our seafood is plated at 12-14 ounces, meats are 16-18 ounces. Out of curiosity, what drinks were you missing?

    I took my mom to Chef Warren’s last night for her 92nd birthday. Maryanne, Daphne, and Chef Warren went above and beyond to make it a special night for my mom. The food was exceptional! Of course, the restaurant has been around 26 something years so that says it all. The service was not rushed and we were provided with ample time to leisurely enjoy our fabulous meal. Thank you to all for making special memories happen.

    Lobster Rangoon had no lobster, the special of shrimp farfella pasta had 5 pieces of noodles. Terrible delivery of a pasta dish. 5 total noodles
    Chef Warren'sResponded on January 23, 2024
    The lobster Rangoons are 75% fresh Maine lobster that is creamed together with the other ingredients. The special dish you are talking about was not a pasta dish, it was a Shrimp and Scallop dish that has pasta in it. That dish was 4oz Jumbo Shrimp & 4oz Diver Scallops. There was about 3 oz of pasta in the dish.
