It was the perfect day for dining outside!!
Too much negativity to write. Waiter forgot half our order. Appetizers came after meal. Forgot my drink. No refills and I was dry. Asked for more but didn’t get it. Laid my Ccard on the table so it would be ready and at a flash he came by and snatched my card I I never got to look at the bill. He was gone in a hurry. He kept saying he was sorry. We sat next to the bathroom and there was a steady line of people going by us and waiters whizzing by us to go outside! Food was good though! Need more help!
Always amazing! Consistently consistent and A++++++!
We ate outside on the patio. It was a moderate humidity day and the weather was perfect, the setting beautiful. Loved everything.
From the pleasant greeting to the birthday candle in our chocolate flourless torts… a fantastic birthday luncheon. Could not have asked for better service or food!! Thank you for making our birthday so special!
I love this restaurant! The She Crab Soup is sublime.
Consistently excellent and within walking distance for us -- we are lucky! Had a lovely evening with friends on the patio. Food and service was great -- thank you!
Excellent, creative, flavorful food! We both loved every bite.
Claire's never disappoints. From the She Crab Soup, daily specials to the daily menu, you cannot go wrong. Best in town!
Great, interesting menu, attentive service, fun ambiance. We will be back regularly
The She Crab soup was the absolute best we’ve ever had. And the Filet Mignon was so tender and cooked to perfection. The items with the filet were roasted shallot mashed potatoes, tobacco onions and wax & green beans which tasted awesome. After dinner, we had Claire’s Irish coffee and Vanilla Bean Brûlée - delicious! There was also fresh baked hot rolls!!!
I took a friend, a former chef ,to Claires for her 70th birthday. The hostess greeted us and said that they were just setting up our table. I apologized for being late the traffic from Silver Spring to Warrenton was awful. We had a great table. The server came and gave us the menus told us about the special cocktail and said she'd give us a minute. Ten minutes or more went by and I flagged someone clearing tables to get our server. She came over and said, " Are you ready to order now?" I responded, "We were ready quite a while ago." She said, "I have a large party that I am taking care of." Friend ordered the Ahi Tuna sandwich and I had the Shrimp Cobb Salad. They were both excellent. We had the Mojito Key Lime Pie for dessert and there was a candle on it. Claire the owner was there and my friend really enjoyed the atmosphere. I was disappointed with the service and this was a first for me.
The food was fine, service slow.
I’ve been a loyal customer for years.
Yesterday was disappointing.
Salad served was not cold. Service was slow.
The worst was after we ordered desert. We asked for the coconut cake, two forks to share. Fifteen minutes later, server came with Key Lime pie. I mentioned that we didn’t order. Fifteen minutes later coconut cake appeared. When I noticed on the bill that we were charged for the key lime pie, the server said he would correct. I signed the corrected copy. However, my credit card online account shows a charge that includes the pie. I hope this is corrected as soon as possible.
We visited Claire’s for our 5th anniversary dinner. The special (herb-crusted halibut over cheese ravioli) was amazing. Service was amazing. Right before they brought out our dessert, they brought us complimentary champagne for the occasion. It was unexpected and very nice. We’ll definitely be back if we’re in town.
Table was ready upon arrival, ambience was classy and comfortable, food was exceptional (I had the halibut special and my friend the Jack Daniel’s Shrimp), and the staff was friendly and helpful. Highly recommend Claire’s for lunch or dinner.
Excellent, consistent food quality with service that is caring and efficient without being overly attentive causing interruption.
Great atmosphere and the staff was amazing!! Now the food... wow!! The steak was cooked to perfection
Wedge salad was excellent. Unfortunately, I was served my hot entree (filet & frites) while only halfway through my salad so it sat there cooling until I finished. Having to swat away a bothersome fly between bites put a damper on things as I not only felt rushed by the server but in competition with the fly for my food. Husband said he would go back for the wedge salad but not the Jack Daniels shrimp as he felt it was bland.
The hostess who seated us was lovely.
As we had a better experience on a previous visit we may try again, but having to request multiple courses not be served at the same time will be cause for hesitation. Trouble finding a parking spot nearby will also factor into the decision.
Always delightful ambiance and service, I was slightly let down that the notation in the open table reservation that this lunch was a birthday celebration, was missed. Also, I had called ahead or time and gave my credit card number over the phone to avoid any wrangling over the check at the end of the meal. That got overlooked as well. The other disappointment was that I felt my hamburger did not have the finesse I expected after eating at Claire's several times before. I'm going to chalk this experience up to an off day that can happen at any establishment. I'm looking forward to going to Claire's again to verify it's still a wonderful place and this was just one of those days.
Great dinner, the Wait staff was fantastic. Never Disappointed
Claire’s is our go to place for a wonderful dinner. We often meet friends there due to the relaxed ambiance and outstanding food. Normally service is also excellent.
Always a joy to eat at Claire’s. It never disappoints. The food is excellent and service outstanding. It does not get any better.
Food was great, the waiter was not.
We always love to have lunch, or dinner, at Clares's. The food is consistently excellent as are the wait staff. A shout out to Louis for his perseverance last night with a full house and the heat. He was literally running!
Clare's is charming no matter what the weather. The crowds last night were especially noisy so it was hard to hear my companion across the table. Better luck next time!
Thanks to all for a fabulous evening out!
Greeting at the door was friendly and energetic. Wait staff were informed and super attentive. Smoked salmon appetizer was delicious and appealing on the plate. Drinks well made and no cheap on the alcohol. Main course arrived timely, fresh, well plated, and ABSOLUTELY delicious. Fillet mignon was cooked to perfection, crab cake had plenty of crab and not too much filler and cod was superb. To top it all off was the hit of the night….fresh carrot cake made in house. OMG! Died and went to heaven! Have been here many times, but this night was one to remember. Compliments to the Chef and staff for making a birthday dinner one to remember.
I love Claire's! The food, service and ambiance are perfect. I never feel rushed to finish and leave. It is a very relaxing atmosphere!
We ate inside in the dining area next to a window. The view was lovely. Our waitress was wonderful and she - and the kitchen - took our food allergies very seriously (which is comforting). The food was very good. Service was very prompt (but not overbearing - the perfect balance). Prices were reasonable given the quality of the food/atmosphere/service.
An eclectic building that harbors a hidden trove of culinary excellence. The appetizers, entrees and sides were all excellent, and served at the temperature requested. The wait staff ensured the table was never in want of anything. A delightful experience.
As always, wonderful. One of our guests was surprised to find onions in the risotto, but they comped it, except they charged us for the chicken, since he ate it off the top! :-)
This is the best fine dining in Warrenton by a wide margin. Food is superior. Add Daniel behind the bar and Louis at your table side and you have the formula for a wonderful evening.
I highly recommend Claire's at the Depot. I have always had good service there before. However, this time the service was poor. The server apologized to us for being "distracted". I felt he was "distracted" the whole time we were there while at the same time lavishing much extra attention on the table next to us. I will say that he had a lot of tables and one large party in the adjoining room.
You can never go wrong when choosing Claire’s at the Depot. The menu and food are outstanding..as is the service!
First time here for lunch. Came here for a business meeting. Good environment for that, excellent lunch menu and very good service. Will come here again for next meetings.
We went there to celebrate my wife's birthday . Service was great as was the food. Will definitely be back .
We had lunch for a family birthday. Claire’s is our all-time favorite for special occasions, with consistently outstanding food and service, in a charming space with a bank of windows overlooking a lush garden. Highly recommended!
Outstanding as always!
Amazing as always. She crab soup and filet is the perfect way to end a summer Saturday!
This is the first time I have been to Claire's. What a charming place. The menu was varied and the food delicious. Service was great. I will definitely be back!
Amazing for an intimate date night!
