We had a family dinner at Claire's the night before Thanksgiving. The food was excellent. The service was great especially considering that we were a group of 22. Having a dinner this good right before Thanksgiving sort of takes away from the main Thanksgiving meal, but we will go back there again after the holidays.

For my money, Claire's is still the best restaurant in Warrenton. Great food, nice ambiance - the total package! Make sure to make reservations as they are always booked up. Prices are a bit on the higher range of mid-range but still very worth it.

It is a great place: setting and food. We ate there many times when we used to live in Middleburg. It was already a great place and it still is. This time, we had lunch outside (late November!). The service was perfect and so was our lunch. We found the wine list a little too much focused on local wines... More

My wife and I visited Claire's at the Depot on the recommendation of several friends. It was my wife's birthday weekend and we were eager to try out the restaurant. Upon arrival, we were seated in the quaint dining room of the restored train station of Warrenton, VA. Unfortunately for us, our server was a very rude gentleman who was... More

While shopping in old town, several shop keepers recommended Claire's for lunch. It's conveniently located a few short blocks from Main Street. I had a cup of beef vegetable soup to start followed by quiche and salad. Everything was delicious! The quiche was substantial yet not too rich and the crust was very flaky. You won't go wrong dining here!

Simply a delicious and delightful meal in all respects. We shared an appetizer and our own main dish, each was excellent. Rarely do we find a restaurant where all the items we ordered can be said to be "excellent"....Claire's was one. A great atmosphere in an old station, it should not be passed over if you truly want a fine... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant looking for something online and were pleasantly surpised. Great atmosphere and the food was very good. Not over priced for the selection and quality. All six of us loved our dinners. Note: a free appetizer was served to a veteran in our group because it was Veteran's Day...nice touch. We expect to return here.

Traveled over an hour to meet friends for lunch at Claire's and as usual it was excellent. The She Crab soup is outstanding, full of flavor and crab. All four of our entrees were top notch....the quiche is perfect and a very generous portion. This restaurant has never disappointed us on service, food and ambiance.

Claire's is easily one of the best restaurants in Warrenton! I have been coming here for years and have never had a bad meal. Highly recommended for special occasions or just a really nice night out.

Thank Clint H
