Claire's at the Depot
We had Father's Day brunch at Claire's. The food was absolutely wonderful. From preparation to presentation, it was very pleasing and delicious. The service was excellent in that we were promptly seated upon arrival and our server was attentive and cordial throughout the meal. The ambience is simply a breath of fresh air. We plan to eat at there as often as possible and hope to make it an annual Father's Day event. This is a restaurant that I will absolutely recommend for all occasions. We live in Charlottesville and will not hesitate to make the drive to eat at Claire's.
The food and atmosphere was great, this is one of the best places in Warrenton to eat
Had Fathers Day brunch and the quiche was wonderful and the Dad’s mix grill was very good. But the lamb was a little over done. The breakfast potatoes was really good! The atmosphere is the best. It is set in an old train stations and the charm is excellent. The servers were friendly and pretty timely.
We always enjoy Claire's and as we were leaving yesterday, my husband and I agreed that we should eat there more often, especially the brunches.
We arrived early and were promptly seated. Our waitress answered all of our menu and wine questions to assist with our selections. The She Crab soup was thick, creamy, and full of crab meat! Our dinners were excellent! We highly recommend Claire's for that special occasion when everything has to be perfect!
First time there and we loved it all! The crab cakes and she crab soup are exceptional!
An amazing lunch on the patio, after visiting the Warrenton farmers market. Enjoyed a couple of drinks, soup, catch of the day, and the “to die for” beet and goat cheese salad.
Outstanding great food and atmosphere super love the people
Always a treat for us to dine at Claires. The service and food are excellent and we love the atmosphere. We having been customers at the Depot since the 1970's and since it became Claires it has only gotten better. We really like the select menu options and the elegant setting. We have taken many friends there for their first time and all have nothing but good things to say about it.
I have never been disappointed when dining at Claire's. The service is always "spot on" and the quality of the food is always superior. This is my "go to" place for fine dining in this area.
Went for brunch and it was wonderful. We had the omelet of the day and it was packed with delicious, fresh shrimp and crab. They gladly accommodated my wife’s special request to substitute perfectly prepared asparagus for potatoes. We also had their wonderful Malibu Mimosas.
The service was prompt and friendly and the atmosphere was very pleasant. We will definitely be dinning here again.
Claire's is a wonderful restaurant located in Warrenton, a lovely small town in Virginia. The decor is lovely, the vibe is lively, staff does an excellent+++ job of making diners feel very welcome. The menu is ample---anyone can find food to their taste and accompaniments can be switched to one's liking. The chef is very skilled and the bar is well stocked. My friends and I would highly recommend Claire's for a very lovely evening.
The service was outstanding. However, were in the bar area that was extremely noisey where you could hardly talk to the person next to you. The crab soup was the best I've had anywhere. The calamari was lightly breaded and very very tender. The filet was perfectly cooked, but the fries seemed out of place and low quality. The key lime chessecake was outstanding. There is no handicap parking spaces in front of the restaurant.
, warm eloquent ambience and fine dining. Just one small comment the salad with olives that comes with the lamb chops is very Olivey so if you don’t like Olives you can’t just pick them out. Always excellent. Don’t go here if you want things to move fast because wait staff allow you to enjoy your evening at a leisurely pace. Exactly what we wanted but that is no everyone’s cup of tea :)
Everything was spectacular from the service to the food. Have been several times before and plan to go back again.
Lovely, patio seating, attentive staff, delicious food
Superb!!!!!! Me Wife & I always appreciate the service, quality of food, cleanliness, and pleasant environment. We can not go often enough to spend a nice lunch with each other. Thank you so much.
Amazing! Drinks, starter and entrees were fantastic.
Such a nice late lunch spot. The food was excellent and our server Jeff was attentive and nice! Will definitely be back.
Excellent experience. The food was amazing and such a lovely place!
Outstanding meal and friendly wait staff. We loved the decor of the old train station.
As always everything was superb. I had the Southern shrimp Cobb salad and it was very fresh and flavorful. Had lunch with a friend that I had not seen in a while. We were not rushed and encouraged totaled our time. Claire’s is my very favorite restaurant.
Perfect place for a leisurely lunch with friends. Unobtrusive yet attentive service and well prepared food. We enjoyed lunch out on the patio. I highly recommend Claire's.
We have been dining at Claire's for over 30 years (before it was Claire's) and since it became Claires it only got better. We "share" our secret with many friends and family who are surprised and delighted. Our friend from Grand Cayman who visits once a year insists on dining at Claire's especially for the she-crab soup.
Birthday dinner. Food was excellent and service was right on time
Five old friends enjoyed a reunion luncheon. We were placed in a round table (great for conversation) with a lovely view of the outdoors. The service was excellent, timely but not obtrusive. Our luncheon was delicious, as were the desserts. We will definitely return.
We celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary with brunch at Claire's and everything from the service to the food was superb!
We traveled rather far for Sunday brunch so I was disappointed to learn that they had "run out" of the special I planned to order and my second choice was "nothing special"--I asked for grits instead of potatoes and the portion was small and cold--Enjoyed the scones
I'm a frequent visitor to Claire's and it has never disappointed me. I love it.
Food was delicious and service was outstanding. Look forward to our next visit
Wonderful brunch. So relaxed and enjoyable. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
Everything was very nice especially for our anniversary dinner. Only complaint would be they put a homemade steak sauce on a wonderful cut of Angus filet. The meat alone needed zero sauce and it overpowered the steak flavor.
Nice ambiance with very tasty entrees and delicious dessert. Food prices seemed about right, although wines were a bit overpriced. Overall we had a great dining experience and plan to go again.
I recommend Claire's frequently to friends visiting Warrenton. It is simply the best fine dining place in town. The food is wonderful and the service is outstanding.
Wonderful place. All should go. Make reservations
Lovely!!!!!! It was iur first visit but wikk not be our last!?
I had never been to this restaurant before. I picked it for convenience for a business meeting. The restaurant was beautiful inside. My colleague and I both ordered the shrimp and grits. The food was absolutely amazing! Every time I drive through Warrenton I will be stopping at this restaurant to eat. I will for sure be a repeat customer!
We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at Claire’s. The food was very good, but we would not order the salmon nacho’s (I didn’t expect them to be cold!) again. I had the stuffed pork chop which was too dry, unfortunately. My husband’s scallops and grits were outstanding and he loved his beet and goat cheese salad. We were also disappointed in the cocktails, which are pricey and not at all boozy. I have a low alcohol tolerance, had two drinks and champagne, and felt nothing. Zip. Nada. VERY unusual for me. Overall, I loved the back yard patio, the server was outstanding. We love Claire’s so, I’m not begrudging it, just those items fell short. <3
As always the food and service are excellent.
This is our 3rd. time dining at Claire's and it just keeps getting better. Highly recommend the Sunday brunch!!
