Enjoyed family time at my old favorite spot that never leaves you dissapointed, Clydes Chinatown!!! (Thank you for dinner my wonderful husband). Our server served with pride, perfection, and super knowledgeable, (he is an 8 year veteran server at Clyde's). The hosts were very accommodating and extremely friendly! Order the (tender flaky)Salmon over Risotto with a delicious side of sauteed spinach, the Maryland Crab Soup, House Salad, cesar salad. Their bar drinks are premium and sensational, I had a Mai Tai & glass of Prosseco. Enjoy and reserve your seat on Open Table TODAY!!!

This was a couples date. Environment was laid back. We laughed, ate and drank which is usual for us at Clydes. It’s a go to spot and never disappoints! Food is always good and the bartenders know how to mix and make drinks!
We had Juan for server and he was knowledgeable, polite and quick! Ofcourse we’ll b back! Only bummer was another patron who dropped bbq sauce and it got on my guys white tee! They didn’t even let us know but the server was quick with some seltzer! We were appreciative of that but ended up throwing the tee out. Anyhoo Clydes is still a good dc spot even though some patrons are a little inconsiderate m.

Mediocre at best - skip it and check out the Hamilton - another restaurant under the same company umbrella with much better food.

Went here for a birthday celebration for the in-laws. This was their second time in DC but the first time at Clyde’s. The servers were very attentive and helped to make the birthday celebration extremely personal and special the entire duration of our visit. Thanks to the staff, chefs, and hosts, we will likely be returning there again for the next time they are in town as one of their new favorites!

The restaurant still has a limited menu due to COVID, but the service is great and the quality is exceptional. With all the vacant storefronts in Chinatown now, there is a bit of a problem with homeless coming into the place and approaching tables asking for food or money. Security is quick to respond but it happens a few times a night.

Beautiful Restaurant BUT they served us water with particles floating in it. We asked for new glass cups and got ones that were foggy. The server then told us that there was no steak, fish or shrimp to be served. I ordered beef stew and it was hard to chew, even the vegetables. I sent it back and just enjoyed my drink.

Overall a good experience. Portions were small and prices where high, but the food was good. Had a bit of a wait with an unsatisfying payoff, but the Manager came out to apologize for the delay and even took 25$ off our meal. That little gesture showed that they cared about customer satisfaction and honesty will be the deference between a hit and miss and a go to spot for date nights.

Went during a busy time, however, it took 15 - 20 minutes after we had been seated for us to see a waiter or get water for the table. This pattern continued and we ended up leaving before we ordered the main course.

The starters were great, (salad, chili, and crab and artichoke dip) however, the meatloaf was not good and neither was the beef stew. The service was outstanding, thank you Jose. We will be trying it again, just trying different entrees’.

Our server was horrible, and the food was bad. Only reason why I gave the food 2 stars was because our dessert was good.

However, I definitely will not be coming back here.

Party of 3, great service, everyone liked their food and drinks. 2 of us got the Restruant Week special, didn’t disappoint. They even let us substitute the bread pudding for chocolate sundaes, you could tell the brownie just came out of oven, not the microwave, so good. Great time had by all.
