Clyde's of Chevy Chase
Clyde's of Chevy Chase feltClyde's of Chevy Chase felt like putting on an old shoe. We had not eaten there since before it was renovated but the ambience was unchaged and comfortable. The traditional mimosa was a nice compliment to lunch. I ordered the vegie burger which was dry for my taste, my wife ordered and enjoyed her turkey burger. The key lime pie was very good and I would order it again. Service was excellent for a busy Mother's Day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMQuantities are a little "light"My husband and I met a friend for dinner at Clyde's. A fairly frequent occurrence. On this occasion my husband had the 'special of the month', halibut. The fish was rather under-cooked, rather small, and the accompaniment, barley,shaved asparagus etc was also rather small. However, he was reluctant to ask for it to be cooked a little bit more in case it came back dried out. I had the eggplant parmesan which is good, but for some reason it doesn't arrive piping hot. Our friend had the salmon, which he said was "OK". The desserts were excellent - but the hot fudge sundae is HUGE for one person. We have had better meals at Clydes than was the case last week. Our waitress, whose name I didn't find out, was excellent, very attentive.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe returned and will againWe have been to Clyde's before and enjoy going back each time. The wait staff was attentive and responsive, without being overbearing. We plan to go back there again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMvery pleasedWas seated immediately got the table that I asked for and the server was the sweetest5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is consistently good,Food is consistently good, though not spectacular. Service is always excellent. Interesting decor.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA traveler's nostalgic viewI have always enjoyed Clyde's - from Georgetown's original to Chevy Chase's Restaurant as the food has been consistently good. Over the years, I have begun toI like the Chevy Chase's site as a departure (pun intended) from the darker Georgetown site. AThe little train, the cars, the posters and the Orient Express seating makes it a favorite "trip" when vacation time is far away.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMVery responsive staff, veryVery responsive staff, very accommodating to our needs, good food, and unique decor. Thumbs up!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe like eating at Clyde'sWe like eating at Clyde's and always leave satisfied. I can't remember having a bad meal there. I enjoyed the lamb meat balls with penne, and my husband enjoyed his swordfish. The vegetables that accompany the meals are fresh and delicious. The food is not oversalted, like a lot of places we go, and I didn't notice a lot of noise, although the restaurant was full. All in all, it was a great meal, everything I'd want in a restaurant, and we'll be back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe team was very helpfulThe team was very helpful getting my group seated and our waiter was very attentive to our wishes,4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA Washington ClassicWhenever we have guests from out of town we always bring them to Clyde's. There's something for everyone, from great fish dishes, steak or a simple hamburger. I highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for a restaurant with broad appeal.
This time I had the fish and chips and I really liked it - made with cod, as it should be. My husband had salmon and was very pleased. Our niece, who's pretty picky, had a cheeseburger and she was happy. The service is very good.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDining upstairs at Clyde'sDining upstairs at Clyde's of Chevy Chase is reminiscent of our honeymoon cruise on the QE2 ... beautiful decor, attentive service, excellent cuisine and lots of choices.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food, a Tad SlowI like Clyde's and except that the food seemed to take longer than usual, would have given 5 stars. It seemed a long time before we received our bread, although the drinks came promptly. We had calf's liver and crab cakes and both were excellent. Parking is always a problem in Friendship Heights, so this is a big plus for Clyde's, which is totally accessible for me in Palisades DC.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFascinating decor evokes theFascinating decor evokes the golden age of travel. Wonderful menu - lots of options which is great when in a group. We had wonderful service during lunch.

We enjoyed it, and there was something for everyone but not an overwhelming menu. Food was tasty, service was pleasant, nice decor. Bar downstairs seems fun. Great for a relaxing dinner and catching up with family. We weren't rushed even though we took close to 2.5 hours to eat (and didn't order drinks). I'd be happy to take future guests there again.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMKudos to Clyde's Chevy ChaseSpecial thanks to the management at Clyde's.
