Clyde's of Reston
Delicious surprises on the menuWe eat here every so often -- love the atmosphere both inside and out. There is usually something new and delicious on the menu. This time it was beef medallions with crispy horseradish topping, mashed potatoes; and the strawberry shortcake for dessert -- both very, very good. Will skip the clam chowder though next time :)6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGood as usualEnjoyed our dinner. Quality of food and service goo as usual.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a business lunch.

With one exception, every time we've been there the food has been outstanding, and the people who serve and assist pleasant and cooperative. This last time was no exception.
A reason we patronize Clydes of Reston on Monday is that it has a 50% discount on wine, and up until recently, a 20% discount on the non-Special of the Month. We were advised that the discount on food is no longer in effect, although our waiter allowed us the discount because we'd not heard about it. That aside, the food and service are highly recommendable.
Although the cost has increased, we still plan to visit Clydes.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOr fav neighborhood lunch spotAdore the seasonal menu while retaining favorites. Always appreciate that they can modify based on our preferences. Recent winners have been the calves liver (sans the balsamic glaze), the green gazpacho, and the pickle jar!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMUn-rushed on a Saturday nite!Our arrival at 5:30 for a 6:30 reservation with our intention to sit at the bar first was genuinely accepted..no rush to have us get our table ..leisurely appetizers..wine..then entrees and desserts in spite of a busy busy night!

Our reservation was honored on time, the food was good and the service fine. All together an enjoyable, tasty experience. Being able to drop off and pick up our guests at Clydes front door was very helpful, as one of our friends has trouble walking. Cheers, P.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat seasonal specials/waitstaffWent specifically for the monthly special - Alaskan halibut. Also the softshell crab. Halibut was very, very, very good - light with a a nice sauce and seasonal asparagus on top. Softshell crab was very good, but serving deep fried with french fries ( ouch! ) was a little heavy.
Strawberry shortcake for dessert was wonderful.
Service was impeccable. Waitstaff elped us choose the best wine, very attentive, friendly and accomodating.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice place. Staff wasVery nice place. Staff was pleasant.

Really enjoyed the barley and ramps. Also enjoyed the pickle jar. Please keep that option on the regular menu. Surprising was the daily soup of korean broth with chicken and vegetables. Very tasty... Glad you had a bit of Siraha for me to spice it up a notch.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything Was Lovely!Clyde's always offers a very nice menu selection where some favorite dishes are always available, and other new ones are introduced. Food is delicious, service is outstanding, and it's the place we go to routinely for a special occasion. Would definitely recommend Clyde's to family and friends.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOld reliableConvenient spot for a nice experience. Always dependable.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat foodBecame a tradition to go during holidays in our family. Always great food and a good variety of options.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply and Consistently GreatI've been going to this restaurant for years and it seems like it has the art of fine dining down to a science. And that's a good thing.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, great food.My reservation asked for a table near a window and Clyde's honored that request without being reminded of it. The server was polite, prompt and checked back with us periodically without making us feel pressured. The food (both of us ordered fish dishes) was cooked perfectly and tasted great and was priced reasonably. Overall it was a wonderful dining experience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent MealThe ambience and noise level were outstanding. Other than having water on my seat when I sat down from the "pourer" the service was excellent. My dinner guest order the calves liver and it was superior. I ordered the shrimp and scallops which was a little more "peppery" than I prefer but I ate everything but the scallops which were not so appealing.
All in all a great night of dining as expected at Clyde's.
My wife and I have eaten at the Towers Oaks Lodge several times but this is the first time eating at one of the other restaurants.
Would definitely eat there again but would order something different.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMhad table 300 in a littlehad table 300 in a little private room food and service were outstanding5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch SpotBrunch was great, good menu selection plus fun specials for cinco dr mayo. The complimentary coffee cake was a pleasant and delicious surprise. We brought my 5month old daughter and were offered a high chair but she can't quite use one yet so we were able to keep the stroller at the table and then when we weren't using it our server offered to place it aside for us. We had seen Belgian waffles on the online menu but they were not on the menu that day. When we asked our server about it, she offered to check with the kitchen to see if they were available. Even though they weren't, it was nice of her to check for us. We live in the town center so Clyde's is very convenient and I always know we will have a good meal here.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways consistent..I guess Clyde's has been around forever because it is consistently good. I have never had a bad meal here, and it is a regular go-to place. It can get loud in here, there was a table of 10 teenage girls next to us, very enthusiastic. So while this is not necessarily the place for a quiet romantic dinner it hits the spot when you don't feel like making too many decisions and just want good, dependable food and service.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are frequent visitors toWe are frequent visitors to Clydes in Reston and it is always a great spot.

All in all very nice.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA pleasure!We've dined at Clyde's several times now and have found the menu to have good variety. The food is always well prepared and the service is top notch, pleasant and seems to be at just the right pace, with rare exceptions. My roasted mushroom quesadilla was outstanding and made it easy for a meat eater like me to go without for a night. My girlfriend ate her Spring Gnocchi like she was going to the electric chair. She'll get even with me for saying so.... On-line reservations made it even easier. Highly recommended!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWas very disappointed in theWas very disappointed in the Black and Blue steak salad just looked like chunks of onion were placed in steak was way to spicy ordinary at best. The service however was wonderful our server could not have been more helpful and attentive4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food as always. Not great.Good food as always. Not great. Just good. But consistent. Stay with the staples like burgers and steaks and you should be fine. The salads are good also.
The more exotic dishes lie pasta and fish are just ok. But if you want seafood go to a seafood restaurant and pasta at an Italian restaurant.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMClyde's Wins Again!!!Clyde's remains a superb dependable dining experience.
