Clyde's of Gallery Place
Elegant yet ReasonableWe had lunch at Clydes Gallery Place and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A number of our group ordered and loved the Lamb Sandwich, which had lamb sliced thin like roast beef, something hard to find elsewhere.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, good pricesThe service and food was excellent and the price reasonable.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite restaurant in DC.I always love going to Clyde's, whether for drinks or for dinner. When eating, I always make sure that I get a booth at the bar immediately to the right when walking in, because I find the atmosphere a bit lacking in personality in the actual dining room, but if you want a quiet dinner while feeling that nobody else is in the restaurant but the people at the table, the dining room is great. The downstairs bar, though, is fantastic, in my opinion. It is usually lively and full of character without being ridiculously loud, and you can typically find whatever game interests you on the TVs while you are eating or having drinks.
I highly recommend Clyde's.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wait staff was very efficientThe wait staff was very efficient and attentive without being overbearing, and very knowledgeable about the wine list and menu.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome atmosphereI've been to Clyde's for several different occasions and the staff has made each occasion special with their hospitality and the food is to die for!!!

Brought out of town guests before the Capitals hockey game. Service was outstanding with perfect timing on table checks without hovering. We had the Lighthouse Seafood Tower And it was filled with plump oysters and little neck clams- perfectly cooked jumbo shrimp-ample crab legs and a lobster! Very mpressed with the quality and quantity! One guest had a cheeseburger that was perfectly prepared - dessert consisted of hot fudge sundae and brownie sundae! All was well done.....make a reservation and avoid a potential wait - this place is worth it!!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe booked a table 1.5 hoursWe booked a table 1.5 hours before a Capitals hockey game at neighboring Verizon Center. Essential to book a table in advance on an event night. Perfect place for a very nice pre-game meal on the high end of dining options adjacent to the arena. Very convenient location for arena events, in the heart of Chinatown.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBest BLT in town. ServersBest BLT in town. Servers are always attentive and helpful. And as usual, Joe--the maitre d--always makes you feel welcome.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI require gluten-free so wasI require gluten-free so was disappointed that the chef is not equipped to alter sauces to accommodate. I was told that many of the sauces have soy sauce in them which has gluten, BUT there is gluten-free soy sauce which is easy to access and very good. I don't mind eating sauce-free if I have to but it shouldn't be necessary. The rice and veggies were good. The Hanger Steak was tough to chew. My husband enjoyed his meal. The orange marmalade toasted cake a treat for him. Wish there were gluten-free baked dessert options rather than just ice cream. That is easy to do as well. Washington, D.C. restaurants do a great job to provide gluten-free selections and many of them. Clyde's was the first that I was let down by.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived early but wereWe arrived early but were seated immediately. Waiter was attentive. Food was very good. It was an enjoyable evening.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friend and I both orderedMy friend and I both ordered the Kansas City strip steak cooked rare, but both appeared to be cooked medium at best. That was disappointing. Otherwise the experience was very good, and the ambiance was exceptional. Perhaps steak was not the best choice, but it was featured as the special of the month.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Clyde's! Went here forLove Clyde's!

When in doubt I go here because I know the food will be delicious and I will receive excellent service. I've been several times and they never disappoint. I love the ambiance and the food is out of this world! It's also a plus that it's next to the Verizon Center, so when I have an event to go to, I go to Clyde's before. Awesome spot!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMy absolute favorite pre-movieMy absolute favorite pre-movie and pre-Verizon Center event restaurant! Always consistent and durable, love Clyde's! Last night was no exception. Service a little bit slow but they were packed before the Fleetwood Mac concert so it's all good.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!We were attending a concert at the Verizon Center and Clyde's was listed as a close by restaurant. We had already eaten at another restaurant in their group called Old Ebbitt Grille & loved it. We were seated immediately, and had a great booth with a street view where we could see bustling downtown DC. The service was great and the food was excellent. The atmosphere was wonderful.
We also booked another restaurant in the group for dinner- The Hamilton. Both were as impressive, with great complimentary menu options, so each time we had something new to choose from!
We would highly recommend any restaurant in their group and hope to try them all!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. Ambiance wasFood was great. Ambiance was outstanding. Waiter was a little slow.

The food was delicious, and the menu was varied enough to offer something for everyone and make our decision very difficult. The atmosphere was warm and comfortable. It was a special treat for my mom, who doesn't often get the chance to venture outside of highway exit chain restaurants. I would go back.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for brunch orGreat place for brunch or dinner in the generally over-priced 7th Street corridor. Ambiance is outstanding. Arguably the best Clyde's in the regional restaurant group.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat alternative to Old EbbittGreat for Easter brunch! Clyde's basically has the same brunch menu as Old Ebbitt Grill, but is usually much less crowded. I couldn't get a reservation at Old Ebbitt, but at Clyde's I made a reservation and experienced very quick service (meal was served in less than 10 minutes of ordering!). Go early (around 10:30am), and you'll basically be the only diners in the restaurant!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm very happy to have Clyde'sI'm very happy to have Clyde's in the neighborhood. It is not flashy, but every time I go there the food and service are excellent and the wait for a table is never too terrible. Great place for a late night drink. Out-of-town guests enjoy it very much.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful EasterWe had a wonderful Easter brunch...food was very good, as was the service and the ambiance. Clyde's seemed to find a balance between up scale and fun for families. The Easter Bunny visited our dining room during brunch making it very fun for the children dining with their families. The quality of the food, the professional service, and the tasteful decor made it a very enjoyable brunch for the adults.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWent here on a reccomendationWent here on a reccomendation from a friend.
