Claire's at the Depot
The food was great and the staff were just as amazing. Inside of the place is beautiful as well. Made for a wonderful Sunday brunch.
As usual, the food, service and ambiance are wonderful. Been eating at Claires since she opened and never had a bad experience! My favorite restaurant!!!
Claire’s is our go-to restaurant for birthdays in our family. This time for my daughter’s 18th birthday. The food was incredible and service excellent as usual. Thank you again for a wonderful dinner!
We had the two specials, tile fish and trio of filets. Both were excellent. I started with the clams and mussels, a bit salty for my taste. My wife had the beet salad, always a favorite.
Best eats in Warrenton. Claire's can't be beat...fresh, creative and never disappointing from menu to service.
Service was prompt and professional, food was very, very well done. A beautiful experience.
Great friendly service, somewhat overpriced. Tables are too close to one another and difficult to carry a decent conversation.
Always lovely. Food, service, decor—all top notch. Everyone brings their A-game!
Claire’s is our new go-to restaurant!
Exceptional as always! Incredible food and great service.
I have been going to Claire's since it opened many years ago. I have never been disappointed. The food, service and atmosphere are always top rate. However, my experience this past week for Restaurant Week was a huge disappointment. Our entire table ordered the crab stuffed chicken with hollandaise sauce. One of our party sent it back as unedible. Another commented that it probably came frozen from a distributer and had been cooked on site. My recommendation to Claire is that if she is going to do Restaurant Week, the food should be prepared with her usual high standards. Otherwise, don't do it!
Claires always a great place to go for special night out. Did not disappoint! Food and service were impeccable. The atmosphere and venue of train depot and especially being seated on outside porch with exposed brick wall and fireplace was lovely. Highly recommend!
The food was phenomenal! The restaurant was beautiful! Leo was an exceptional waiter!
Food and service were wonderful. We will definitely be back!
Everything about our dinner was excellent. We were attended by Laurie, who did a great job in every aspect. The timing of each part of the meal was perfectly done and we neither waited nor were hurried into each phase. The food was beautifully served and at the right temperature for each item. We really enjoyed Claire’s and it is one of our preferred restaurants for special meals.
It was excellent!
The table was ready for us when we arrived. The hostess brought us water and we settled down to look over the restaurant week specials. We selected a refreshing grapefruit cocktail, and made our choices. The house specialty She Crab Soup was shared. It was a perfect blend of creamy, savory, spicy and sweet. A mixed green salad with roasted corn and the Veal Scallopini from the restaurant week menu were ordered. My special request to substitute rice for the pappardelle was met with complete accommodation. My friend ordered the sea scallops, which was a generous portion of silver dollar sized scallops served over polenta and lightly sautéed spinach. The Grey Ghost Chardonnay was a nice accompaniment to all. We both completely enjoyed our meal. We shared the mixed berry compote with vanilla gelato to finish. All in all, we had a lovely dinner out.
Wonderful evening out. Our server was so helpful and attentive and her suggestions were excellent. Food was delicious.
Lovely restaurant with wonderful, warm ambiance. Food was quite good and our only bump in the road was when we asked that the mushroom ragout would be omitted from the filet mignon my daughter ordered, we were told "No". Made no sense then, makes no sense now. It's a "sauce", just don't pour it on her meat and we were good. Other than that, the meal was delightful. The petite filet was cooked exactly as requested as far as doneness was concerned. I would recommend this small and quaint restaurant to anyone!
As always, consistently great food and service. Not a loud place. Very pleasant.
The veal was superb but the best dish was the special of the night, my wife's crab stuffed chicken. They should put that on the regular menu. The staff was very pleasant and attentive.
Claire's at the Depot is a beautiful setting, and Chef Anna's creations are exquisite. A wonderful restaurant to visit for special occasions or to treat yourself to something above and beyond the norm.
Delicious food! Try the Filet Benedict for brunch - perfection! Wish I lived closer so I could go more often.
Absolutely wonderful experience. Can’t wait to go back.
She Crab soup was amazing!!!
What a wonderful restaurant! Simply charming!! The decor, the food, the service -- all top notch!! It's difficult to find nice restaurants this far from DC, but Claire's is an absolute gem. In fact, I made a reservation for our next dinner before we left the restaurant. You gotta go!!
They were very particular about everything from the food to the service. Def worth the drive and visit. Food was fabulous. Exceptional cuisine.
Seat covers and table covers were soiled. They could use a cleaning and/or replacing.
Food was delicious. Our server was attentive and kind. Noise level was low and the fireplaces were lit adding warmth and comfort on a winter day.
We’d love to see a house made seasonal ketchup to go with the steak and frites. Maybe cranberry, mango, persimmon....
Overall experience was excellent.
Claire's is the restaurant I select when celebrating a special occasion or treating a friend or friends to lunch. Always great food and great service!
As always, a great experience. The only thing that kept me from a 5 is that the chimichurri on the swordfish was bitter—maybe too much pith from the orange peel? The beet salad was amazing as always and the Aunt Beatty’s cake can’t be beat—and I’ve tried!
Claire's continues to deliver great food and terrific service. Love it!
We are always satisfied when we come to Claire’s. Everything on the menu is fabulous.
such a lovely location and delicious food. i can't wait to go back.
First timer and was not disappointed. Will definitely be back.
Claire’s is a Warrenton main stay. The food is consistently dynamite. Our waitress Liz was excellent. It’s a bit pricey for my wife and I, although we always manage to go several times a year. It is such a well done done and outstanding restaurant. Best of the best. Our favorite in this area by a country mile.
My wife and I have dinned at Claire’s for over 15 years. Worst experience we have had,Hostess tried to seat us in the bar area. I told her no we wanted the garden room after much debate we were left standing in bar for 8 min while the table we wanted was found, once seated the Hostess lectured me on how to use Open Table, she had no clue, I’ve used Open Table before no trouble before. We felt rushed my wife’s dinner was fine my Veal Dish was dreadful, overcooked veal bland unimaginative sauce with a clump of egg noodles on the side. Distracted server never inquired if we needed anything or how was the meal. Dessert was straight out of the microwave too hot to eat, we were not offered coffee or the water glasses never refilled.
I love Claire's. The food is always delicious and the old train depot is simply gorgeous inside. I especially love it when it's winter when the fireplaces are going....so charming! Staff is wonderful too!
This was our first time at Claire’s. The structure and atmosphere was wonderful. Although we didn’t sit in the front room with the bar it appeared very relaxing. The food was great. Our waiter , Leonardo, was efficient but not very personable as a waiter. At times seemed annoyed. He could have changed my overall experience to a 5! But I plan to come back with my husband.
Everything was top shelf - except the bacon was a little, no, a lot, overdone.
Food was over the top delicious. A little disappointed that our waiter didn't refill our champagne glasses when they were empty.
