$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.

    Our evening was exceptional! We had the cured salmon appetizer followed by the burrata and arugula salad. For our entrees, we had the scallops, which was the evenings special and the pork schnitzel. Both were absolutely delicious. For dessert, we had the flour less white chocolate cake, which was out of this world.

    Had an absolutely wonderful experience at Chef Warren's. My wife and I opted to order most of the items off the tapas menu and it was excellent. The kangaroo loin and tiger shrimp were particularly good and the special that night of mushroom toast and mussels was delicious. 10/10 will return.

    The food and service were excellent! Melissa made us feel like "regulars" and she was delightful! We do not live in the area but will definitely become regulars when back in the sandhills area. My amberjack was off the chain and my husband's trout was delicious!

Seating in the restaurant was comfortable and allowed good conversation with each other. We had been to Chef Warren’s before and it was a pleasure to bring my brother and his wife to enjoy a fine dining experience!

    What a great dinner had by all! 8 hungry golfers: a few in from China … were thoroughly thrilled by Chef Warren last evening. Inspiring continental cuisine was on the menu. Everyone left with full and content stomachs after a beautiful day golfing in the Sandhills. Mary Ann & Warren - Thank You for providing a hands down spectacular venue to bring and delight our customers and suppliers.

    I’ve been coming here since I was in college 20 years ago, and Chef Warrens is still our go to spot when we’re in town. The meal is always excellent and the service is wonderful. They also select great wines to put on their menu. The steak with fries is always my favorite, but you couldn’t get a bad meal here. Perfect for special occasions, date nights, or family dinners!

    The “special” tonight was to be 2 beef medallions with very special potatoes. For $68.00 What I received was 2 non tenderloin pieces of beef somewhat very mediocre and a 1” wedge of typical scalloped potatoes, oh and 3 string beans and a small carrot. For $68 I figure the profit was at least $55 on this meal. Never again!! Will I select the special. Chef Warrens you should be ashamed to serve this type of meal and charge this price. Maybe the Chef’s has been around to long!!

    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).

    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.
