Food was excellent, as always! I had the shrimp cobb salad - amazing! My guest had the pasta on special and she loved it.
The food and atmosphere was exceptional. We received excellent service from Anthony, our server. He helped make a special occasion celebration even more special.
Thank you for the wonderful review and rating. We appreciate your kind words and will share your review with Anthony as well.
So glad we discovered Claire’s. The food was excellent and the ambiance was incredible. We had a window table, looking out onto a beautiful garden. My friend and I shared a beet salad, the crab cake and cod entree and creme brûlée. We each had cocktails that were very refreshing. The only complaint that I have is that they charged us for an extra plate for the entree. My friend has had gastric bypass surgery & is unable to eat large portions. I wish the waitress had told us that they charged extra and I would have explained our situation. We were running a bit late for a theatre performance, so I didn’t have time to question it after we received the bill. Otherwise, it was a wonderful dining experience!
Excellent as always! The best choice for lunch or dinner in Warrenton!
Service and food were excellent. Definitely looking forward to going back.
Lovely as always. Good food, good service as always.
Wonderful presentation of Chicken Curry special yesterday. Always a treat to eat here! Service is exceptional, as well.
Claire's at the Depot is one of my most favorite places to eat. I brought a good friend for lunch on Friday. It was her first time there and she loved it! From the ambience and service, to the fabulous food, Claire's is a special place and one that I will return to again and again.
What more can one say about Claire's? Great food; great service; great atmosphere. Five star wow.
Claire’s is a go to spot for our family. The food and the service are consistently great. I love the ambiance too. It’s a classy and comfortable place to relax and enjoy good food and conversation.
Wonderful dining experience for our 15 year wedding anniversary!!!!!
We enjoyed it very much. Good ambiance and good food
We have eaten at Claire's twice now and both times had a wonderful experience. The bartender is amazing and makes delicious cocktails!
We sat at the high top tables and really enjoy the ambience. There are other seating options from large tables, dining room seating, bar seating and patio.
The food is superb! We have enjoyed the asian lettuce wraps, coconut shrimp appetizers as well as the wedge, beet & goat cheese and southwestern caesar salads. ALL ARE AMAZING!
Entrees that we have had are the Ribeye, Scallops and I had the Grouper special. All I can say is WOW! Delicious.
Lewis has been our server both visits and he is such a joy. Very energetic, friendly and funny.
We will definitely be coming back!!
The only recommendations I have would be a place to hand your purse under the tables, some light background music like piano, jazz and the lights being dimmed a little.
The food and atmosphere was great
Excellent experience. Attentive but not hovering service. Food was delicious- the cook on the ribeye and salmon was perfect and desert was a tiramisu cake. Would definitely recommend
took my mom here and we requested window seating when we made the reservation. Everything was great and my mom really enjoyed
My wife and I have visited Claire's literally hundreds of times for lunch, dinner, and/or drinks. Claire's is consistently the finest restaurant in Warrenton. On this visit, however, there was a problem which the restaurant itself did not create. A table of four persons, seated near our table, was extremely loud. About every 20 seconds, all four persons would erupt in raucous laughter, to the point that my wife and I could not hear each other speak. We asked to be moved to another table, and our request was cordially accommodated, for which we were very grateful, and which saved us from a most unpleasant experience.
First visit and will definitely dine there again. Lots of good menu offerings.
Fantastic food great service
Great food and service (try the Jack Daniel’s Shrimp). Already planning our next trip.
Excellent food and wonderful atmosphere.
We loved the whole experience and will visit again.
Always love the food although the sauces on the scallops and special Cod were a bit heavy handed we thought. Great service
Service was good. Food was okay, the veal marsala needed seasoning the cod and crabcake special was okay. Our server was very pleasant but definitely busy
Great food, I had the famous crab cake.
Our waitress was excellent!
Consistently great service, food and drinks at Claire's. Outdoor music on Thursdays weather permitting is always fun.
We had reservations to dine here for a party of 4 at 12:45pm. The host sat us as soon as we arrived. But we sat at the table for well over 15 minutes before we had ask someone walking by if we even had a waitress or waiter? They said they would go get our person for our table. He finally came, didn’t say sorry for the delay, can I get you anything to drink! He just stood there!!!!! We told him that we didn’t order anything yet and can we order drinks? We have home our drinks order and then our food order as we were not sure if he would come back. He was not very friendly or professional. He didn’t even say thank you for coming today. This was not our first time to Claire’s but it most likely will be our last! If asked we tell others about the poor service at this restaurant. Sorry Claire’s.
All around wonderful experience
We checked around with friends, people in Warrenton, and people who'd been to Warrenton. Then we read reviews. Claire's at the Depot came up on top of everyone's list, with several other restaurants in Warrenton following behind.
After eating at Claire's, we can say: ignore the rest. Once you've eaten at Claire's, there's no other restaurant in the Warrenton area that can compare.
We had the ahi tuna salad (a perfectly made salad nicoise with large pieces of rare tuna), the codfish and crabcakes (all crab in the crabcakes, and cod that was perfectly cooked), and the mushroom risotto (deeply flavorful with a range of textures that only added to the experience). Both the creme brulee and the key lime pie were excellent. We ordered from the less-expensive end of the wine list, and found a winner from a local vineyard.
In addition, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere (we sat outside) charming. We were in Warrenton for the weekend, but we'd make the trip to Claire's from northern VA just for a great dinner. Highly recommended.
We always love coming to Claire's, it is like an oasis. The food and setting are wonderful, it's always a good place to celebrate special occasions, as well as a weekday lunch. And I appreciate that many times when we arrive, we are given another table option, if available. Because of that hospitality, my friend and I recently were able to have a table outside on the patio and enjoyed the greenery and breeze while eating a delicious lunch. C'est bonne!
Our favorite go to restaurant when we can get a reservation. Very popular and excellent dining experience
Great service, outstanding food with an atmosphere not often found i. Fauquier County. Just fantastic.
Claire's is always a great experience. Our favorite restaurant in the region.
Claire’s is a great establishment in the heart of the downtown area. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. Great spot for a celebratory dinner.
Claire’s never disappoints. We started with the duck confit and fried oysters, outstanding as usual. Split their famous Southwestern Caesar salad, and then had the Cod/Crab cake combo along with the Ribeye steak entree.
All I can say is everything was cooked to perfection and all food was of high quality. Too many restaurants sell low quality ribeyes that are chewy and dry. This steak was full of flavor, melted in your mouth. The crab cake was just about all crab, large chunks of it.
Finished off with the Mojito Key Lime Pie (DELISH!), and called it a night.
Claire's at the Depot is always an excellent experience and the perfect spot to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary. They never disappoint and our waiter was excellent!
I’ve visited Claire’s four times in the last two weeks, one anniversary and three granddaughter’s birthdays. Needless to say, we love Claire’s!
This was my third time at Claire's, spread out over three years. Each time has been a fabulous experience. The latest visit was dinner with an old friend who I had not seen in years. We occupied a table for almost four hours. (And tipped very well, accordingly!) Our waiter was delightful---he paced our dinner so we never felt rushed. His excellent service, plus the food and ambiance, made for a memorable evening.
A perfect birthday celebration. Always a wonderful experience at Claire’s!
Anniversary dinner very nice and a free glass of Prosecco
