I can't really rate the food; as I just did the coffee experience - which was fantastic. They take you through each drink and explain it and how to drink it.

*Due to the style of menu on special events and holidays and the complexities involved with individual and specific food allergies, we are unable to accommodate dietary restrictions on those days. We make every effort to provide vegetarian and accommodate gluten sensitivities.
Sourcing food and supporting local artisan growers and producers and utilizing our farm as the chefs pantry gives us the opportunity to create an evolving menu that draws its inspiration from the seasons and in harmony with the earth. The venue has a breathtaking view and natural setting overlooking the Potomac River. We offer a progression menu Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. Check the website for the menu. Wedding, rehearsal dinner, corporate or special event – we strive to exceed your dreams. Innovative and skillfully executed dishes follow the lead of nature, being mindful of the environment. 2023 #2 Northern VA Magazine

Hard to believe I have lived in this area for >25 years and only recently heard of this restaurant. The setting, high up overlooking the Potomac River, is splendid. Warmer weather allows for outside dining. The menus is progressive and the same for all diners unless special accommodations have been made. This is truly high end dining. Many(9) courses, all just enough, but not too much. You will leave sated and satisfied. Wine list is excellent. Food is seasonal, so the menu changes frequently to accomodate this. Most food, except fish is sourced locally, including on the farm itself. We celebrated my brother's birthday and the staff was appropriately attentive, especially our primary server John. This is a truly unique dining experience and not to be missed if one enjoys food and service that takes a back seat to no other.

About the restaurant
Restaurants in Alsace traditionally have a formal main dining room as well as a casual dining room known locally as a weinstube or brasserie. At the brasserie, diners may enjoy traditional, hearty Alsatian dishes in a warm and relaxing atmosphere. These friendly establishments are immensely popular with Alsatians and visiting them is always the best part of my trips back to Alsace. I opened Jacques' Brasserie at L'Auberge Chez François to bring the tastes and comforts of the Alsatian brasserie to Great Falls.

In a casual yet elegant atmosphere, set in a recently remodelled century old historic train station, Claire's passion is great food and outstanding service.

The renovation honors the historic character of the Warrenton Train Depot, resulting in a warm, comfortable environment for casual meetings with friends, or special occasions and intimate family meals.

A rotating selection of craft beers is available on tap, and the wine service is regularly expanded. Outdoor dining is available in season, and private events can be hosted in one of several areas in the restaurant. Awarded "Best of Warrenton" every year since 2006.

The food was outstanding for a very fair price. A bottle of wine was reasonably priced. We were not rushed and the service and staff were the best. Can’t wait to go back.
