Diner Reviews
  • "Always a solid meal, usually good service. Can't get enough of that Maryland Crab Soup."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Menu gets stale after several visits. You need to vary it more."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Great food with variety. Very close to Verizon Center."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "My family and I had a nice experience at Clyde's, but I was a little disappointed. Many people have talked about how much they enjoyed Clyde's, but I left the restaurant unsure of what all the fuss is about. It's not that it is a bad restaurant at all, it's just that I have been to less noisy restaurants with better food and better service. You can't go wrong though if you've just finished a movie and don't want to travel very far for a meal."

  • "very reasonable price, great ambiance, and loved the fact that they have 1/2 bottles on the menu, what a great idea! will definitely come back."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Clyde's has great ambiance, good service and a solid menu. You can go dressed up or come casual. The atmosphere is remarkable, dark wood, paintings, good lighting (not too dark or light). You can spend a good bit here, or go for something more affordable. They do have a kids menu, though we were the only ones there with children. A great spot...we will come again."

  • "I like the Clyde's group restaurants in other places. It's a reliable, varied menu to have when at Verizon or museums."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "The food is always good and the service is prompt.."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "We went to Clyde's after running the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler. A tradition that we normally go there when we are in DC. Excellent food as always. The service was a little under par this visit but still a great restaurant and great food!"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "What I appreciate most here, beside consistently well prepared meals, is that when I ask to share a dish because my elderly parent can't finish an entire dish, Clyde's will serve that dish already split on two plates. If you dine upstairs, it is very easy it enter the Verizon Center via a long corridor and an escalator. Perfect for inclement weather and perfectly convenient. We will return here not before Verizon events, but whenever we want a good meal in a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We made a reservation for after a basketball game, knowing it would be crowded. When we got there we were seated in the bar. Just not what you expect when you make a reservation. Needless to say, the food was good but I couldn't have a conversation with my husband because it was too loud."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Fantastic as usual.......great food, excellent service!"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "We often dine at Clyde's before a game at the Verizon Center. Some servers ask if you're going to the event in order to have your bill ready in time. After we finished eating, for some 5-10 minutes we couldn't find our server and the other servers weren't helpful taking a "It's not my table" attitude. Just made it to the start of the game. Beware..."

  • "Getting a reservation at Clyde's before a Caps or Wizards game is the best way to avoid paying arena concession prices. Great beer list, cocktails and solid, solid, solid service and food. Is this high-end, food alchemical heaven? No, but when you want to get together with friends in a place that can feed a broad range of palates and consistently deliver high quality (based on 20 years of experience periodically dining with this restaurant group in various locations) -- Clyde's is your choice. (Note the noise level rating is for the dining area upstairs, not the bar, which is obviously louder and hopping before the game.)"
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "After going to the National Portrait Gallery to see the American Cool exhibit on a snowy (Spring) Sunday, Clyde's Gallery Place was the perfect spot. We had a great table upstairs by the windows so we could watch people scurrying in the sudden snow shower. The food of great American fare was perfect. Service was great without being intrusive to our lively conversation. Perfect refuge. Multiple bars were busy and fun. Great experience."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "The brunch menu was just fair, not many items to chose from. They should try to expand the menu. I know they are mainly a dinner, lunch crowd, but if they want to draw people in before early games at Verizon they should definitely expand the menu. Also the Bloody Mary's were just fair!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "A group of friends and myself went here to celebrate my birthday. The waitstaff was extremely helpful and the food was delicious, however, the noise level got to be a bit extreme at times making it difficult to hear each other speak. They do have a great wine list and cocktail specials, they also sang to me for my birthday."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "What's not to like? Great ambience and always longstanding, expert and professional service with wonderful food in the mid-range. A beautiful setting in a great building with really wonderful art work and decor."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Have been here before and it was just as great as last time."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "The food was good, but expensive and service was just okay. We were served quickly enough, but waiter refilled water glasses upon request--when we flagged him. He refilled wine and beer orders a bit faster. Friendly atmosphere, good location-- Reservation was available at requested time, but it's Important to make that reservation--very crowded."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We've been to this Clyde's many times and have always been impressed with the ambiance, professionalism, quality and value. Staff and menus change, but the emphasis on giving the diner a great experience is constant. At this lunch, we had the salmon, fish and chips, roast turkey sandwich, and steak salad - and everyone was thrilled with their choice."

  • "Fantastic menu service and food, 2 & 9 yr old ate well!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Everything was excellent! I made an 8:15 pm reservation and was seated immediately. The food was hot & delicious. I will definitely be returning soon."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Order the one crab cake dinner entree. You don't feel stuffed and it's delicious."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Very noisy so it is hard to talk is considered energetic. What kind of survey is that?"
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Food is always very good, consistent. The tall black guy at host stand downstairs was SUPER, the younger girl and middle aged guy upstairs not as nice, but maybe they were just busy (even tho we were there before the rush at 11:30)"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Had the vegetable lasagna and was pleasantly surprised. The right size, not overwhelming. Flavorful. Not your soft and gooey lasagna."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Service wasn't very good as we had to send a few incorrect items back and everything (drink orders, entree orders, check, etc.) just took longer than it should. Our dishes were "just ok" at best...appetizers were solid, but anything beyond a burger as an entree seems to be a risk."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Our group of five(3 adults, two kids) made a reservation prior to the evening show of Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus at Verizon Center. Although there are many eateries nearby, Clyde's is by far the most versatile, professional, and friendly. Beautifully decorated, varied menu, good wines, and superior service. A great, quiet, pleasant restaurant before or after any special occasion at Verizon Center. Wait staff, when informed of our timeline, had us on our way with ten minutes' grace--outstanding!"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Our waitress was more interested in chatting with another waitress than taking care of us. As a result, my otherwise very good food was almost cold. Will likely never go there again, although we have consistently good experience at Clyde's in Chevy Chase."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Clyde's in Gallery Place is the perfect spot for a business or working lunch if you're in that area. The food is reliable, the tables are spaced far apart and the service is great. I've also had a really good time at the bar after a concert at the Verizon Center."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Bad day for Clyde's. The Circus was in town. 5 people: 2 medium burgers overcooked; 2 french dips came out on hot dog buns (with no mention from our server, who said she wasn't told, that the baguettes had been 86'd). 2 dozen oysters were great, which the manager comped when he learned of our feedback, which, on this night, was the only reason to recommend Clyde's to a friend."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "went to Clyde's before the Sting/Simon concert...first class all the way."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "I had an excellent meal at Clydes of Gallery Place. The staff was willing to do whatever it took to make my friend and I's dining experience exceptional. I would definitely come back. They have a wide selection of good on the menu. I was very pleased with my overall experience. Irving is an exceptional server."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "I was nervous to go before the circus bc the Clyde's from my 20s is a fun bar we used to go to...however bringing my 2 yo at 6 was great and they were...service was good, oysters fresh and specials were yummy...they didn't even mind my huge stroller"
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Took my parents here for St. Patrick's Day. Knew there would be a good beer selection and some hardy Irish foods. The portions were large and the food was tasty. Best of all was that they'd spread patrons out so the quiet meant it was great for conversations. Will of course go back."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "You can always trust the Clyde's chain for a delicious meal and unique atmosphere. This case was different. My husband felt his food was a little greasy, but overall we found everything wonderful. Unlike some of the other restaurants (ie: Old Ebbit and Georgetown locations), Gallery Place does not feel too crowded or loud inside. We had a great time and will definitely return!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The waiter's brought multiple orders of our food...wasteful since we could not eat the additional food! The hostess was not friendly & insulted my wife by calling her "sir"...HER name is SHIRLEY & she had earring hoops on! The young woman was less than apologetic & copped an attitude when she was corrected. We've eaten at ALL the Clydes restaurants and have decided to stop eating at the Gallery Place location. Suggest sending trainees to the Tysons location! That has EXCELLENT SERVICE PERSONNEL!"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "I love this place. No matter what I get, it is good, from the bread to the entree...yummy!"
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Ate here (just steps away from Verizon Center) before a game. Beautiful dining area, great atmosphere, and comfortable seating. Food was a little slow coming out, but we had plenty of time. The wait staff was excellent, attentive & friendly. Would go back in a heartbeat. Food was very good - norm for Clyde's."
