    Plenty on the menu for everyone. service started out great, very attentive, however was lacking towards the end of the meal. We never received the chance to ask for a second drink and we spent at least 15 min at the end of our meal with all plates empty before the server returned to our table to clear the plates. Then in was an additional 10 min before he returned to ask about dessert. By that time we were done and ready to leave. Great food and nice setting.

    Food had some hits and misses. I had the crab cake platter which in fact the crabcake itself was just ok. The veggies which were sauteed kale pearl onions and butternut squash was excellent. Had fried calamari for appetizer which also could have been better. Taste like it was cooked in peanut oil but was fried very well. Not rubbery but slightly chewy. My daughter had a mojito which taste like it had a premade mixture that taste like it was made with artifical flavorings.. I stuck with my favorite wine. Had the gingerbread creme brulee for dessert it was excellent. HoweverThe service was great prompt courteous and polite. I dropped my napkin and it was noticed bu a server and it was immediately replaced.

    Clyde's is a great staple for when you want American food, have a large group, or to just have a casual fun dinner. The French Dip was great, as was the pork shank appetizer. At brunch, make sure to ask for the coffee cake. Gotta love Clyde's!

    We dined at Clyde's with our 3 children that have food allergies. The staff of Clyde's was wonderful at handling our special requests, and very attentive to the dietary needs of our children. We do not always have a good experience when dining out with food allergies, but they did a great job. We are very appreciative. And, our waiter was great - very kind, attentive and patient!!

    I have enjoyed Clyde's NoVA locations, but this was my first time at Clyde's - Gallery Place. Four of us metro'd there for lunch: easy commute and short walk. The restaurant is very inviting, with lots of wood and rich tones. The lunch menu was varied with a good selection of entrees as well as salads and sandwiches. At our table, we had the spaghetti bolognese, the steak frites, and the osso bucco. The steak frites was very tasty; the hanger steak was cooked just right and was nicely seasoned, and the fries and steak accompaniments were really good. The others around my table were also very pleased with their selections. Service was very good: a pitcher of water was left at our table, which is a good approach.

    We went to Clyde's in China Town as we always do before going to a Caps game. The food was phenominal, as always. We we're happy with the Jonas crab claws and let the waitress know. She brought out an additional six that were very tasty, indeed.

    Went for lunch with a colleague who needed to vent - and we got a booth at the 1st floor bar. We had the necessary privacy. Clyde's is always reliable, service was good, food was good. This is just a solid restaurant. Not Amazing, but reliable solid. They had taken the beef enchiladas off of the menu since the last time I had gone, apparently - I wish they hadn't. Nothing last forever, and I had a turkey burger. Clyde's, though, can get expensive, so you really only want to go when you need the space and privacy. Otherwise, there are plenty of Good burger joints around Penn Quarter now.

    Clyde's is a very good, predictable restaurant. The meals we had were well prepared and tasteful. The service was great. A little noisy,it may be the location of this branch, downtown/gallery place and it being a event night at the arena next door.

    We've been eating at Clyde's for many years and it's always provided a comfortable atmosphere and reliably good food. On this occasion, before the Fleetwood Mac concert at Verizon Center, we all took advantage of the monthly special and had the lobster pot pie....delicious!

    Food overall was ok. In our group, some people enjoyed the food a lot, others less so. I had the lobster pot pie - mediocre. Certainly would not order it again. Should have ordered a sandwich or burger - keeping it simple. Appetizers better than main courses. Atmosphere was the best part. Beer list was pretty good - had a couple of Stella's. They clearly knew their audience - played all Fleetwood Mac music before the show next door.

    My husband and I usually love Clyde's but last nights dinner was very disappointing at Gallery Place. Chili and Gumbo were way over spiced. Hamburger was small and dry. French Fries were not good. My husband's dinner was fine. Also disappointed that the waiter ordered Makers Mark Manhattans instead of rail bourbon which my husband ordered. Maybe it was the crowd for the CAPS game but dinner was not what I normally expect from Clydes and I've been to almost everyone of the restaurants Clyde's owns including 1789, Old Ebbitt and Tower Oaks.

    We had a nice meal at Clyde's, in that we enjoyed the food and company. I found the waiter very off-putting. While I don't much like overly friendly, casual service, this man was so sour and cold that he chilled the table whenever he came over. Add to that the noise level where we were seated and I will leave Clyde's for times when another friend wants to go there. It won't be on my list of choices, esp. On 7th St. NE where I can choose many more congenial establishments.

    While the food is very good, the menu does not change often. Clyde's needs to alter the menu more frequently and offer more seasonal specials. If you eat there often, you do not have much to choose between. Other Clyde's seem to do a better job in changing the menu than does Gallery Place.

    Everything was fine: food, ambiance, being hospitable. The only negative was when several glasses of water, lemonade, and coke were spilled on my person as well as my jacket and wind breaker. I was surprised that the drinks were not subtracted from our bill nor did they offer to pay for my dry cleaning. This doesn't stop me from recommending it to others; it was a fantastic experience besides the unexpected shower that I received.
