After one failed attempt, my friend and I finally made it to Claire's for brunch. Even with a reservation and numerous empty tables, we were told to wait but were soon seated. We both opted for just water and each order the omelet of the day (mine without asparagus). Our food was quickly delivered and delicious. The fontina cheese was... More

Enjoyable meal with a attentive wait staff. We had the $9 Calamari for an appetizer. Calamari was tasty and tender. I had the $16 Crabcake Sandwich with a large serving of French fries and a small serving of cole slaw. Large crabcake on a bun and the crabcake was not too spicy. My wife had the $17 Shrimp and Grits,... More

Must try the crab soup, which is tomato-based, creamy and full of crab. We also had the salmon "nachos" which were delicate and not over-loaded. The spring risotto was delicious and lemony - full of artichokes, peas, fennel, etc. A great vegetarian option. Lunch was a perfect "anniversary" celebration - we were seated in front of the roaring fireplace on... More

Claire's positive reviews are right on the money! The setting has a lot of charm -- as the name suggests, it's an old depot with an airy extension that lets diners enjoy views of the garden out back. The welcome was warm and the service what you'd expect in a good restaurant, but often don't find. But the highlight was... More

Delicious and great service. We started with the she crab soup - rich, slightly spicy yumminess. Our entrees were the chicken curry and the salmon on a plank. Both were awesome. Our server Luis was charming.

Great wine selection, fantastic food, great atmosphere, personal service, and reasonable prices. Get one of the specials (I had veal scaloppini with gnocchi) for something really special.

Claire's is a must go to place in Warrenton, Virginia. Claire has been making creative food and catering for a long time. She catered my in-laws 30th, 40th and 50th wedding anniversarys. Claire has such attention to detail and puts a unique twist on the best food with exquisite presentation. Her staff is all knowledgable, professional and friendly. Our server,... More

Been to Claire's several times for lunch - always a pleasant experience. Good service; tasty, well prepared food - only complaint is that parking can be difficult.Dining area open to lawn/courtyard - bright and cheery.Food is eclectic range, but all well done - lads, curry, pot-stickers, etc.
