    Met a friend for lunch and sat outside. This is a great area for outdoor dining since it's central in the Reston Town Center. The patio was full but service was still great. Ordered deviled eggs and fish tacos...both were excellent!

    I frequent this restaurant often, as well as many of the other Clydes restaurants. I had chosen this location for a birthday celebration and I was very disappointed. Our server was not only doing a poor job, she was rude. We were disappointed by our horrible experience with our service, because the food was excellent per usual. The waitress did things like rush us to make decisions and acted imposed when were just taking our time and enjoying our meal. She kept complaining of being exausted and seemed annoyed when we asked to see a dessert menu. She was annoyed to have to get us refills and made comments like, "I guess." I usually have loved coming to this location, but because of his visit, I won't be too anxious to come back.

    Clyde's should be embarrassed of the mussels they served me. I ordered the Appetizer and was given 10 mussels. (Ended up being about a dollar a piece). They tasted terrible, like they were old. Some were so shriveled up they weren't even edible. Very dissatisfied.

    The occasion was a meeting for me of a prospective, new client and we chose Clyde's as a centrally located meeting spot, since we both knew the area well and Clyde's reputation....we were not disappointed! Brittany was our server and very knowledgeable of the menu and what alternatives were available for my gluten intolerance AND my guests' diet restrictions. The atmosphere was classic and elegant and the booth was perfect for conducting my proposal meeting, though the surroundings got a bit louder towards the end and it became difficult for me to hear my guest.

  • The 2nd steak was great
    John
    Dined on 8/12/2014
    When the chef/cook over cooks a steak, it's a good thing when the 2nd steak comes out in minutes and tastes great. That's what happened at my recent visit to Clyde's of Reston. And the waitress scored BIG POINTS by bringing a "doggie bag" and asking if anyone at our party owned a dog so that 1st steak wouldn't have to go into the trash.

    I love Clyde's. I have eaten at every one of DC metro restaurants. My favorite is in Tyson's corner. My least favorite is the Reston Town Center. It kind of reminds me of an airport check-in area. If you do not have reservations, expect to sit outside in the sweltering heat (because there is an insufficient amount of seating or standing room in the "lobby"). With that said, make a reservation! The atmosphere can be a little like a sports bar because the bar area is in close proximity to the dining area. The furniture is poor in comparison to the Tyson's Corner restaurant. Some reconditioning is in order - things (seats and tables) are worn down from all the use.

    Service was slow despite lunch "population" was diminishing and not too crowded. I had fish and chips. The French fries were lukewarm (fish was hot and okay). Food server was pleasant and attentive, and can't tell whether her serving us was slow or prep of dishes, backstage, was the problem. I've eaten often at Willow Creek where it has been a better experience. I know I should have requested the French fries be heated, but after waiting so long, we wanted to be on our way. The 3 guests (my relatives) were reasonably satisfied with their selections--but had better meals at the Chevy Chase Clyde's. I hope this doesn't sound too grumpy!

    The service at Clydes was excellent, as always, but our meals were not as good as they've been on our many previous visits. My overall memory is of a little disappointment, but unfortunately I can not remember any details except that my fries were tough and not fresh.

    Me and my wife are big foodies, and were very impressed with the dishes they had. I used to eat a lot of meat, but am now pretty vegetarian (Some fish and seafood) and I was not dissapointed in the Bowl of Summer. Really taste and very fresh, the Salmon my wife got was very excellent as well. Both dishes were excellent and served pretty quickly. The service was very nice and the ambiance was nice. Outside there was a live band playing music, and the inside was a little noisy as well, but I can't fault them for being very busy. All and all the night was great and most importantly the Mrs. was happy. :)

    Overall, my last few experiences with Clyde's of Reston has been a resounding "meh"... The quality of the food always hits its mark, so good on them! The quality of the service is disappointingly and frustratingly inconsistent. This was "the spot to eat" many moons ago, and Clyde's seems to fail to grasp that they are not the only players in town now. My wife and I actually had a debate on whether or not to eat at Clyde's or Mon Ami Gabi (our normal go-to in RTC)...I wanted Clyde's, she wanted MAG. I wish we had got to MAG... First round of drinks took FOREVER! Not one, but TWO separate Managers had to come by and assist our awful waiter for another round of drinks and helping us pay our check. My suggestion: Dine elsewhere!

    Consistently a very good place to dine, and with a half-price wine list, even better. Service is always notable - quiet, efficient and friendly; the food, especially Clyde's montly specials, are equally impressive. As I've written here before, we been returning to Clyde's of Reston for more than a decade, and we plan to continue to do so.

    Compared to other Clyde's, the Reston room is very dark. Our food was good..there was a menu mixup in that salads has just changed and while we ordered what was listed on the menu, we were served a previously offered salad with different ingredients. The server removed the item from our check. They were accommodating for our birthday celebration.

    The service at Clyde's was terrible. The delays associated with several of our drinks was attributed to the bar being really busy. And the lengthy delays we encountered with our food order were attributed to the kitchen being really backed-up. Certainly this was not the first time Clyde's has had a full restaurant is it?

We had someone in the group that needed gluten free options, and the waitress was great at explaining what they could do to prepare most dishes as gluten free. Food was uniquely prepared and delicious! Waitress was well versed in all plates on the menu, made recommendations when asked, and was polite and friendly!

    Nice to sit outside for brunch. A little noisy with music from the outdoor speakers from the restaurant competing with the music from the speakers in the pavilion. Food was good. We all three had the New Orleans omelets. Potatoes were good, and the omelets were large. Would have been nice to have toast or a muffin or something similar included. Service was good but had to request a some items.

    Clyde's of Reston has it all... Great beer and cocktail choices, wonderful atmosphere, comfortable booths inside, outdoor seating, plenty of parking and delicious food! It's a well established neighborhood restaurant. One bonus is you can relax and carry on a conversation over a good meal, because you don't have to shout across the table over noise and/or loud music.

    Dined on 6/26/2014
    The food at Clyde's is good, and I really enjoy the outdoor seating area. However, none of the chards by the glass looked very good, and the waiter said he would not recommend any of them. We ordered the only half bottle available. They were out of it. After ordering two more bottles--and being told they were out of them, we were told they only had one bottle left--it was the most expensive on the menu. After expressing some discontent, we were informed they were changing wines and were not ordering the new until all of the old stock was gone. That sends a pretty clear message that they are poorly managed and not terribly concerned about the experience from the customer perspective.
