Went to dinner after a movie @ Living Room Theater across the street. Extremely convenient. Arrived about 15 minutes early but our reserved table was ready anyway. Service was quick, friendly and the food unique and tasty.

We ate everything on our plates! The serving portions were the right size, not too small or too big. Just right!!
Creative blending of ingredients, papperdilla was great.
We sat upstairs overlooking dinners below.

We started with cocktails, which are always among the best in town. The crudite and cheese appetizers were both very good, particularly the romesco sauce. The trout and steak entrees were also good.

This restaurant is great for millennial and those who are not seeking a conversation had without shouting. The service was great and the food was fair (I could not eat the dish I ordered due to a very bitter taste but my companions enjoyed theirs enough) but the noise level prohibited us from talking without literally screaming...it was not an enjoyable evening for us but may be for others.

Everybody was fantastic, especially our server Erica. I was able to talk whiskey with Ben the bartender. They have a great selection for see hard to find and rare whiskey. The desserts were fantastic. For value, perhaps a slightly larger portion. It doesn't have to be of the main course, it could be of the side and the vegetable.

I like how they name their entire staff from server to owner to kitchen to bar on the drink menu. It goes to show just how much effort it takes to make a place successful.

Also I would encourage people to order the feast beef ribs. They looked absolutely delicious and proceeds go to hurricane Harvey relief.

Goat steak was a little bland and tough, as well as the potatoes on the same dish. The pickled squash and goat ribs were, however, excellent.
Clams were a bit salty but very flavorful. Anchovy toast was very well-balanced.
Drinks were amazing! Me and my date loved Trailer Daisy, and I also loved the Negroni and Daily Punch.
Will drop by again if we're in town!

First, what this place does right: Morgenthaler's whiskey-barrel aged negroni was the best I've ever had. And from the kitchen, the padron pepper app proved a worthy choice, combining the subtle flavor of vanilla with a mild but complex heat, finished with a good blistering. The anchovy toast burst with flavor and umami, providing more pleasure in one bite than our two entrees combined. Where this places misses: My $29 strip steak was so bland, I poked at it for 20 minutes before finally asking the waitress to bring me more pickled ramp sauce. The sauce truly elevated the last four bites of my dinner, providing just the right high note for the steak, but by then it was too late. My husband's "goat two ways" (osso bucco and sausage) showed innovation in concept but lacked flavor from the first bite with under-seasoned meat and a lack of acidity. My advice: Pass on dinner but go for a quick cocktail and apps.

I've been to Clyde Common before and have genuinely liked it. It's been a few years, and boy, no wonder why they were the only restaurant that have availability on a Sunday night. Food was ok, and waitress was fairly uninterested in us. Will probably return, but only for their happy hour at the bar.

Great Portland Dining Month experience. We loved the menu provided so three of us ordered that and the fourth ordered the scallops. The risotto was almost inedible though. So blan and way too much spice to be enjoyable. We ordered the charcuterie platter which is worth it! (But you have to ask for more bread because there is so much and only three slices.) It was worth coming back on it's own! In the future, I'd like our waitress to be a little more friendly. She was professional and attentive, but didn't show much personality.

Went to enjoy Dining Out Month special. Every thing was great. Service was attentive, helpful. Only problem, loud music playing, added voices from other tables, hard to have conversation. Either need to add additional sound deadening material or turn off music. Would recommend
to any one looking for authentic American cuisine.

When our group arrived for our dinner reservation the restaurant was filled with an incredibly loud, standing crowd of people that spilled into every corner. As it turns out it was a private retirement party. The restaurant staff did a superb job of acknowledging the potential problem and showering us with attention. Although our conversation was conducted at high decibels, the food was inventive and a good time was had by all. I plan to return under more normal circumstances.

Our neighborhood is taking turns planning a dining month outing. Clyde Common was our first. Selected because it would be the first visit to the restaurant for several and Oregon Live recommended it as a good value. The Portland Dining Month menu was a preset 3 course meal. The 1st course was an appetizer on the regular menu, the 2nd course a side, and the 3rd a dessert. All totaling less than the $29 PDM fixed price. Instead of showcasing their fine dining as we had hoped, we felt they sent us home hungry and disappointed. Nine of our party of 10 ordered the PDM offering. Not sure I'll give them a second chance.

We go here frequently and were happy to get a reservation on Valentine's Day. We ended up arriving almost an hour early but were happily seated right away. Got to sit upstairs, which is always nice. Had the chicken feast and were pleased with it as always. Everyone is always great here and happy to answer questions. This place continues to be our favorite restaurant in Portland.

The food is very delicious and it's just enough for me to feel full, but that's it, don't expect to take any home. I think a person with a larger appetite would be disappointed, because they'd probably still be hungry after eating an entree. That said, though, my tacos were AMAZING and my friends really liked their brunch entrees, too.

The service and cocktails were attentive and yummy, respectively. We came for Saturday brunch and it was great. Our large party reservation wasn't an issue. But we could only use 4 cards to pay for a group of 8, so that took some juggling, but we worked it out.

Only other thing that I can really think of is that, for longer meals, the chairs can become a bit uncomfortable after an hour or so.

My friend and I were in Portland for the first time and this was a perfect addition to our trip! We went in for brunch on a Saturday morning, it wasn't too crowded but it was busy. The best part was the make your own mimosa option! You get a bottle of Cava and a choice of 2 juices. Perfect for my friend and I- yes, we love mimosas. Food was great, pricing was on point, and it was a great start to our day!

our appetizer was amazing, simple but delicious gouda and jam over crackers, our small plates were also amazing! Alas the feast fell far short not only should we have stopped after the small plate which was enough of a meal but our short ribs were underseasoned, fatty and just plain awful the salsa verde was quite good but only a little on one side of the chunk of meat, unfortunately we could not share that with the waitress as she was not interested.

I had to google some of the food items, but the food that we did order was very, very tasty. We got appetizers, entree, and dessert and each was better than the previous. The portions are not much, but what you get is very tasty and somewhat different than what you'd get at a chain restaurant.
The service was great, our server was on top of everything.

The only thing that was a bit of a bummer to me was that I was really looking fwd to getting the make your own mimosas that was listed on the menu, but didn't realize it was only a brunch item. Otherwise everything was great.

One portion of the grand food and beverage options that flank the lobby of the Ace Hotel, Clyde Common has become my go-to place for great dining on visits to Portland. From the quirky patrons, the deliciously fun waitstaff (host staff can be a bit rough), to the energetic room and the always inventive cocktails, Clyde Common is a place a foodie or a hipster or a tired traveler can find a terrific meal.

We were seated on time (Reservations) and served by a knowledegable and pleasant young man. Our meal was served on small plates which allowed for sharing. Each dish was delicious and better than the one before. We had a great meal with a nice bottle of red. The restaurant was a bit noisy (it is in a noisy space with no sound absorbant materials) but even with the jazz background music we could still carry on a conversation. We will return for more tasty small plates.

Great food if you like a Germanic Alsatian influence...! Service was good but heartless plus difficult to hear with the din.

The appetizers were fine but the entrees were expensive for subpar food. The menu listed every herb in the oxtail dish. Oh except the tripe, which none of us wanted. The oxtail was undercooked and impossible to share as it had to be chewed off the bone. The smoked duck breast dish was mere threads of duck with giant balls of squash. I would've been happy to spend the couple of hundred dollars had the food been good.
