    Such a great restaurant located in downtown Portland. I had a fantastic gin cocktail, enjoy a glass of wine from a nice selection, and CANNOT stop thinking about how wonderful the Braised Lamb Shank I selected as an entree was. Excellent service. Wonderful vibe.

    Great service but the food wasn’t anything to write home about. The portions were quite small. I ordered a starter, main, and a couple drinks but still left a little hungry which rarely happens. The cheese board came with 4 small crackers total and the lamb shank was 90% bone with very little meat.

    The space is cool, and the cocktails are very good. The staff is friendly. We were able to get a reservation on the Saturday after Valentine’s Day, which was great. It’s very loud, and I had trouble hearing our server. They brought the wrong drink at first. I had to use the bathroom, and the hostess came out just before I went in, and there was no TP in the dispenser. I got the orecchiette, and it was wayyyy over salted. My husband had the plank trout, which was good, and the green salad was also good. Overall, not bad, but also not worth paying a babysitter for.

    Cocktails were good. Middle of the road food, and not worth the price. Three of the four dishes we had were over salted. The waiter was great, and the atmosphere was good, but there are so many better options in Portland, many of which are more reasonably priced for the quality.

    This was a disappointment. The salads were heavily dressed and the vegetables were oily to the point of inedible. The fish was good but overwhelmed by the side dishes. It is LOUD which contributes to the ambience but just be prepared. On the plus side, attentive and easy-going service. For the rep and the price point, this place needs to be way better.

    If I spend the amount of money I spent, I would expect attentive wait staff. Bruce was not. Finished drinks/dishes were not removed in a reasonable amount of time. Although they advertise European style foods, the service is still American which leaves a lot to be desired. I get tired of waitpersons asking every few minutes if everything tastes good or is fine or are you liking the food, etc. If there is a problem with the food, I will let them know; I don't need to be asked. Other than the lacking service, the food was good. My trout was cooked to perfection (although the pickled veggies didn't compliment the flavor of the trout) and everyone else seemed to enjoy their food.

    Clyde Common has a challenging menu, in my opinion. I ordered the steak frites and the meat was just OK and under-cooked per my preference of medium. Their specialty is cocktails and that's where they shine. I'll wait a while before returning for dinner.

    Everything about Clyde Common was great, except for the added "wellness" charge at the end. If you ask a server they'll tell you that it's to pay for health insurance and can be waved. This should be wrapped into the cost of the food, not charged separately. Paying workers a living wage with benefits is not "extra." It is simply the cost of doing business. I will not continue to patronize establishments where owners shame their workers in this way. It's a shame because the restaurant is otherwise lovely but I will not be going back.

    We share a few appetizers like the fried cauliflower, the salted cod fritters which both were delicious! And we also had the cornbread with burrata cheese, prosciutto, honey and sweet pickled peppers. A very unusual combo but very effective! My husband said that was the best cornbread he’s had! Then we shared the “The Feast” of the 40 ounce T-bone steak, wedge salad and potatoes gratin. The steak was cooked perfectly and there was plenty to fill us up! The blue cheese on the wedge salad was so creamy and not so funky which I liked. By the time dessert rolled around we were so full but we plowed through the carrot cake with strawberry ice cream which was just ok. All in all, it was a great time and a successful evening!
