    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?

    This was the first time we had tried this restaurant. We loved the atmosphere, the menu was great. 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.

    Went to dinner at 8:30 p.m. One of us ordered the North Carolina BBQ sandwich which consisted of little chunks of grisley meat, portion size the same as that of a petite can of cat food. Bun SOAKED in vinegar. Uneatable. Re-ordered the Reuben Sandwich. Bread was wet & all of the ingredients slid out onto the plate when picked up to eat! At that point, appetite was gone! I ordered Turkey Club and a bowl of Maryland Crab soup. The toasted bread for the sandwich was cold, there was barely any meat on it, but TONS of lettuce. Soup was loaded with lima beans & canned tomatoes. Did not even SEE any crab. Side dish of melons was not ripe, green, was cut down to the skin.. Lesson learned: Don't eat at Clyde's after 6:00 p.m.

    Clydes has always been a favorite restaurant, and this time, the food and service were outstanding. Each of us had a different entree and enjoyed all of them (seafood linguine, steak, ravioli). We were glad that only one dessert was ordered, because the strawberry shortcake was enough for all 3 of us and was excellent!

    I took my husband there for Father's day. It was a long wait for the food, probably because it was Father's Day, and they made a mistake with my dish (it was missing the ham) but I didn't have time for them to re-make it by the time we got it, so they did take it off the tab without me asking which I appreciate. The food we did get was very tasty, fresh and high quality food.

    Clydes has always been a favorite but have felt that menu and food presentation needed some updating so we had not been there for awhile. What a pleasant surprise. We were there two weeks ago and returned two nights ago because there were other dishes on the menu I wanted to try. The crab cakes were outstanding and they are more than willing to make substitutions Unfortunately prices have increased but that's ok. Clydes of Reston will return to our go to list.

We moved from our initial seating to a quierter table...but the noise was everywhere. I shall ask next time by calling the restaurant directly.

    We had been there once before - Saturday lunch - and had a very nice lunch in a relaxed atmosphere. We invited friends to join us on Wednesday night and it was a totally different place. Food was ok - not great, service was good - but waiter very rushed, very loud - could not hear each other. Unless we are in the area I would doubt if we would go back. With so many restaurants in the area, with the price, it is hard to go back to an "OK" place when you could go to "GREAT".

    We love Clyde's. Love the food, the menu, and especially love the friendly, accommodating service. We love the multigenerational vibe at OUR own Clyde's if Reston. I have no answer with regard to some of the categories in item #2, above, e.g. Clyde's of Reston might be "great for brunch." It was great the one time we took a party of six there for brunch a few years ago, on a Sunday in May during the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival, but as we do not make a habit of going out for brunch except when traveling, I cannot comment further on the subject other than to say that we would be inclined to return to Clyde's if we did.

    I love to eat out more than my budget allows, so I am always pleasantly surprised at the high quality/moderate prices at Clyde's in Reston. I've had dicey times at the one in Penn Quarter, but Reston seems to get things right. My $9.75 Manhattan was perfect and served in its own shaker; the green gazpacho opener was very refreshing and full of complex flavors; and my calves liver, while standard, was prepared and presented with a lot of care. The featured rose by the glass was a surprisingly right choice for the entree and at a modest price. Clyde's is getting a bit of competition down the block from the new Ted's Bulletin, but that has only helped them up their game. One comment: It is beginning to look a bit worn.

    I met a friend here for Sunday brunch. We were seated in a cozy booth and enjoyed everything about our meal. The complementary coffee cake was delicious. I ordered the soft-shelled crab and my friend ordered the monthly special, which was salmon. Both dishes were superb. I had the strawberry shortcake for dessert, which was perfect. Service was attentive and our waiter did a great job of answering our questions about some of the menu items. He was very well-informed about each menu item. My friend and I had fun walking around Reston Town Center afterwards. I look forward to eating here again!
