Clyde's at Mark Center is a wonderful gathering spot. The food is always delicious, service good and ambience usually quiet. If not quiet, you never have to yell to your dinner partner(s). I've been going there for years, and it has maintained its excellence. A very good value.

Painfully slow service. At least 10 minute wait for server to ask about drinks after he poured water and left. Had to speak to a manager to get server back. Bar crowded but dining rooms almost empty, so no excuse. Not normal service this time.

All in all it was a good experience… The server had a number of busy tables, the birthday cake came out without candles, but the food was good the drinks were strong and the ambience was superb

My wife and I started with splitting a dozen oysters (two of each type). They were fresh and fabulous! Then, I had a Caesar's salad which I tend to use as a benchmark. It was perfectly dressed, crispy, and not ice cold which tells me it was prepped to order. Nothing worse than an ice cold, soggy salad. For the main course, she had the swordfish and loved it. I had the duck breast and it was perfectly prepared...in the top three ever. However, I really could have done without the rice pilaf/cabbage/Brussels sprout side. Just wasn't for me. Next time I'm going to see if I can sub that for french fries. Now that would have been awesome! For dessert, we split a chocolate covered ice cream pie which isn't listed on the web menu. All in all, it was a really good dinner and we'll definitely be coming back.

I called the afternoon of the day and asked specifically for a table not a booth. When I arrived my party was in a booth. We had to move tables. Don’t understand when I called with a specific request and it was confirmed why there was an issue.

We have been going to this Clydes' for over 15 years- the service and food seemed sub-par to what we usually experience at Mark Centre, and other Clydes' restaurants we frequent (GTown and Old Ebbitt Grill)
Hoping it was just an off night....

My husband and I celebrated New Year’s Eve with a lovely dinner. The food was excellent. Our waiter Ian was wonderful. He was attentive and made sure we had a wonderful evening. There was also another waitress in the section (sorry we did not get her name) who was very attentive as well.

We had a great meal and a great time on New Year's Eve. Service was great and we enjoyed walking around and seeing the restaurant decorations. The only negative was that during the middle of our meal we started getting really cold. I guess the air conditioning was turned on.

Food was good. Service was good but speed and attentiveness could improve.
Sitting in the same room as a loud, very happy group celebrating when there are two other dining rooms which were only half full was quite unfortunate. It diminished the otherwise nice experience.

Nobody greeted us for about 20 minutes and the place was empty. They jammed the three tables they had with customers all together in a very open restaurant. It was an awkward vibe the whole time. I ordered the filet and it was just so so and not cooked to the correct temperature. I would compare my food to the quality of like an Applebee’s or something, but unfortunately it was priced like a high end steakhouse, leaving you with a feeling like you over paid. I love Clyde’s and this was my first time at this location, and will definitely be my last. I hope the other locations I have enjoyed in the past haven’t dropped to the level of this location. I probably won’t be visiting any Clyde’s location anytime soon because of my experience here.

We go to Clyde's fairly often and enjoy it but this time, I felt like the service we got was not so good. I noticed a large party come in after us. They ordered after us, and yet, their food was served way before ours was?????? Considering that 2 of our dishes were salmon salad, I found this to be quite puzzling and honestly, pretty annoying. My mother is elderly and we waited for such a long time for our food......I realize it was xmas eve but most parties were eating when we arrived.....

I would refer Clyde's to a friend but not for Christmas Eve. This has been our go-to place for the past 10 years, but last year and this year have not been as good as previous years. The service was incredibly slow and the server seemed tired and perhaps overworked. Items were forgotten and we sat for 20+ minutes before the server came to the table the first time.

Fantastic food and service! We got a wonderful recommendation on wine and was surprised that Clyde’s honored 1/2 price off of bottles on Christmas Eve. It was perfect in every way. And, this is why we continue to eat here!

The service was excellent. The kitchen ran out of scallops early in the night though. Also the crab cakes and calamari were delicious but came out on the cool side. The house wine ( red) used to be a high quality Rutherfurd but was a lower quality Rutherfurd this time. The salad was soaked in dressing. Salmon dish was superb! Also appreciated substituting fries for spinach side dish.

Service was not very good but food was nice. I had requested a table by the fire when I booked the table months ago, but when we arrived, they had already filled those tables. A bit disappointing as it wasn’t busy and I had made the request well in advance.
