Chef Warren's

4.9
4.9
1067 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.

    This was my first trip to Chef Warren’s though I have been wanting to go for 20 years. My husband and I finally went to celebrate a special occasion with friends. We loved the ambience and the friendly greetings from the host and all of the servers. I personally loved that there were so many seafood options, including a nice seafood special as I have an allergy to red meat. The tomato fennel soup was also lovely.

    Great food! Very loud and for a fine dining restaurant they never offered fresh ground pepper for the salad or meal! They also never asked if we wanted separate checks stating it was in the menu to request them when ordering and refused to separate the check! Even local cafes and the Sizzler separate checks! Not a fine dining experience based in the service level!

    Chef Warren'sResponded on January 3, 20231. We never claimed to be fine dining. Read our description, we are a bistro, a local family run restaurant. 2. We do not have a computer system. Dividing a check afterwards can result in errors as to who had what. That’s why we ask to be informed of separate checks ahead of time, as printed on our menu. 3. Thank you for the heads up on the pepper. I will work with my staff on that point of service. Warren

    I really hoped for more as this was a birthday celebration. Food was uninspired and came out tepid. What blew me away, is that at 1/2 a grand, not even a dessert gesture was made?

    Chef Warren'sResponded on January 1, 2023We comp birthday dessert. You were asked about a dessert and refused it. With your son’s severe food allergies, just randomly sending out a dessert could have been dangerous. Nice user name. The owner and your server both checked on your table and no comment was made about the temperature of your meal. It’s too late to fix it now. 1/2 your check was wine.

    My second visit. Seafood dishes were very good, duck was just okay. Nice ambience. Overall, not a good value.

    Chef Warren'sResponded on January 1, 2023Sorry you didn’t care for your duck dish. Had you said something at the time, we could have prepared something else for you.

    Holiday visit to our second home in Pinehurst and our favorite restaurant in the region and one of our all time favorites any place. Warren and MaryAnn have the formula for great food, entertaining experience, service and attention to detail that are second to none. We have been coming here on vacation for 25 years and never disappointed as consistency is above all as the staple of this great small family owned and run gem.

    Very good food, limited menu, nice atmosphere, higher prices than it should b.

    Chef Warren'sResponded on January 1, 2023Limited menu? 12 appetizers, 3 seafood dishes, a vegetarian dish or 2 as well as 4 meat dishes, as well as Daily soup specials, seafood and meat specials. How much larger should the menu be for 60 seats? What was missing? My biggest fear is someone will not find something to eat on my menu. As to the cost, we’ve run the same %’s as we have for 25 years. I’m sure you’ve seen the insanity of the supermarkets. I am glad you enjoyed the food as well as the atmosphere. Warren

    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!
