    We visited this restaurant for dinner on a Friday night. Restaurant has both indoor and outdoor dining available. We chose the indoor dining which is a vibrant and unique atmosphere. We were seated in a requested booth beneath a wall of somewhat kitschy, but well done Garden of Eden murals. My wife had the lobster and I had the seafood pasta. Both were superb. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. Ample onsite parking is available.

    The ambiance and decor are great. I felt comfortable as soon as I walked in. The menu had lots of delicious sounding items, but they failed to impress. The chicken pn the chicken and waffles was heavily breaded without much flavor. Then it was covered with hot sauce maybe that was supposed to add flavor. I had been to Clydes previously and enjoyed the food. This time it was just OK.

    We were seated immediately, but the service was very slow. The manager and server were very nice and apologized several times during the evening. Manager took our drink/app orders as the server was delayed. The beet salad and the clams were delicious. The entrees were slow as they had overcooked the brick chicken (The one they brought was borderline overcooked). They brought another beet salad and, when we said we had one, they just gave us the 2nd one. The salmon entrée was very good, the salmon salad was unremarkable, and the fish and chips were good. The server checked on us frequently and the manager offered free desserts for the table due to the slow service. The chocolate mousse was very good, but the cheesecake was nothing special.

    We got the time we wanted to have a leisurely dinner prior to attending the performance of "Cirque Dreams" at Wolf Trap. Three of us got the lobster and one doubled up on his order. The staff will "de-shell" the critter for you if you are a neat freak. The swordfish was delicious. The desserts were free thanks to the ticket envelope from Wolf Trap.

    We reserved a table for a family birthday and the host greeted us and took us to the perfect table. The service was superb throughout the meal, despite a very busy restaurant. The food was fresh, cooked properly, and delicious. The entire staff worked together to make sure we were happy. And the slice of chocolate birthday cake was fantastic!

    We visited on a Monday night. We had made reservations, but when we were seated, only 3 tables were occupied. Three of us ordered the veggie ravioli. It was delicious and just the right size. The server was very attentive and sociable (without over sharing). We always like the food there. The ambiance so-so -- they try, but place is underlit and the layout is kind of tight.

    We got our family of 12 together to celebrate a Birthday and all had a wonderful delightful delicious dinner and get together. We were not rushed-service was really attentive and helpful and everyone in our group remarked how much they enjoyed their meals. We all look forward to returning. Their menu is great and has a very nice variety to satisfy all different kinds of tastes. Their seafood is always nice and fresh and perfectly prepared as well as their other entrees.

    The music was way too loud sitting outside but thankfully after talking to the front desk they turned it down so a comfortable conversation could be had. The food was fresh and well cooked but lacked depth of flavor in the dishes. The blackberry creme brulee had 1 blackberry on the dollop of whipped creme. It was just traditional creme brulee so I felt the description was very misleading. It was good, but nothing to rave about.

    It's a bear to find, really tucked away - got lost a few times en route. BUT... the food was pretty good, music wasn't too loud, service was alright (server brought us our check before we were ready to close out - he just assumed we were done, but we wanted to order more and had told him that we were thinking about it), but I went there for a first date and it was a pretty good pick to do so.

    I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal at any Clyde's. The summer vegetable quiche was perfect, as were the fried green tomatoes. The strawberry mimosa was good- not too strawberry-ish but just the right amount. I recommend this to anyone looking for a good meal- the menu has a ton of options and while not cheap, I would also not call this expensive at all for the quality of food that you get. If you haven't been- try it out!!

    Went with friends who picked the place, so we didn't feel comfortable returning our food or complaining while there. I had catfish....tiny little dry piece, flavorless and overdone, on a bed of swiss chard with beets that I thought were supposed to be roasted (they were ice cold, tasted like the kind that is bottled in a grocery store). Husband had salmon, also way overdone, flavorless, on a bed of spinach. Friend had dry overdone ribs. All the walls were covered with romance novel like images of frolicing naked adults, which was the best part of the meal only because it provided us with lots of opportunity to joke around with our friends. NOT a place I would consider for a family gather that includes young people or older relatives!

    Overall I was disappointed. I picked this location to meet family I don't see too often as they live out of town and I am familiar with your Ashburn location, enjoy that location. First, we were sat at a table that had a dirty table cloth, it still had crumbs and food still from the previous guest. They tried to cover the issues with a napkin. Second we had two people order a bacon cheeseburger neither came with bacon, mine did come with a tomato that sat under the heat lamp while the rest of the food was being made. The staff needs to be trained on how to serve. The busser was on the other end of the table from me and pointed at my plate for me to hand it to him. They all reached across the table to either serve food or clear plate.

    Overall, the experience was positive; and the wait staff was exceedingly attentive. Salad; Yellow beets were totally scrumptious, but the lettuce was Costco large box variety, not farm to table fresh. Chimichurri: a tad vinegary. I have a family recipe from Argentinian family members that's balanced and outrageously good. Brick chicken: Perfection! Hangar steak: Wanted a nice beef entree, but this had a really strong meaty taste. My fault entirely; that particular cut of meat usually is. Cheesecake: Absolutely perfect. Blackberry Shortcake: The cake was incredible. The seedless blackberries were phenomenal! Perhaps the blackberry liquid could have been reduced to a glaze, so it didn't make the bottom of the cake soggy.

    Went for an early Sunday dinner with 2 pre-teen children, their mother and two older types. Service was friendly, but amateurish (befitting the age and experience of the people who work there on a summer sunday late afternoon, when there won't be much in the way of tips). The food -- two salmon salads, one BLT, one French Onion soup, one grilled chicken all shared being bland as a common trait. Just nothing of any note. No reason to return anytime soon. Open table says that my review's nickname (whatever tat means) is"satisfied." Not even remotely true, Bored and indifferent better describes it.

    We were having an early dinner at 5PM because we were going to Wolf Trap. We were seated right away but then waited 10 minutes for a server although there were plenty of servers standing around and passing our table by. Eventually our server showed up and from then on everything was normal for a Clyde's restaurant--outstanding.

    Went for lunch and our sandwiches were very good. Could the cup holding the cole slaw be any smaller??? Our server was superb-- helpful and attentive. What disturbs me is that this once pristine and unique environment is looking tired and worn out. Palm trees withering; plants pathetic. Didn't the fountain between the palms used to work? My chair cushion was split with foam exposed. Our table wobbled terribly. Beautiful wood surfaces are dull and dingy. Up higher than heads you can see cobwebs. Wrought iron "fence" was dusty at the bottom. It's all about details. Seriously, after seeing it for 3 decades, this once Art Deco grand dame needs to be face lifted and its beautiful features restored.

    Came in prior to concert at Wolf Trap. Food was delivered efficiently but was awful. My burger tasted lousy and upset my stomach remainder of the evening. Neither of my daughters could eat their meals. One ordered chicken fingers, received fish and while they redid them, insisted they were chicken but it was the oil? By the time they redid her meal, we had to take it with us. Other daughter ordered pizza and it was quality of microwaved frozen pizza. While they were apologetic, we were looking for a simple, easy meal. Just not good. Maybe they do steak better but I'm not finding out.
