We came to DC for the Pink concert. Our reservation was for 6:00- we did not get seated until 7:00. This is the second time that I’ve made a reservation there and had to wait due to them not being able to handle the high volume of people . The staff was very nice despite the many rude people that were just tired of waiting. I can’t say I blame them . Our waiter was wonderful

Clyde’s is really not the place to go before a hockey game. We had reservations for 5:45 and didn’t get seated till almost 6:30. And then we were planning on having dessert but the server took so long to get back to us to even ask that we ran out of time before the game. Clearly, they book too many tables for reservations and then can’t seat them all at the right times. And the server was very overworked. He was pleasant enough and the food came out in time but he just wasn’t around to collect the dishes or to refill our drinks. Food was excellent though.

Drinks and service was very good. I had the DC fried chicken with mumbo sauce, not so good. The chicken had a nice crunch to it but the sauce was all sweet, no tang or heat. Will definitely dine here again, just not get the DC fried chicken.

I made a reservation for dinner before the CAPS game, as I do often, Reservation was 5:30 , seated by six, took half an hour for our drinks and appetizers to show up. We never saw our waiter to order dinner. Finally finished dinner at 725...late for the game.

A great date night spot prior to the Capitals Playoff game. The bar area was packed with fans, but the dining room was well organized and quiet. We got the happy hour raw bar and had the crab legs and the oysters. Crab legs were hard to break, so I did not enjoy them too much, but the oysters were top notch and fresh. We had the Scallops entree and the Salmon entree and they were both phenomenal. Worth the price. We ended the night with dessert. The warm brownie sundae was great and the banana bread pudding was huge, but enjoyable. Our 5pm reservation got us out of their at 6:30pm and we went the the game stuffed! Great spot.

As always the highlight for was the exceptional raw bar offerings. Jonah Claws, outstanding Pacific rim oysters, huge delish shrimps. We also enjoyed splits of French Dip and Reuben Sandwiches

This is one of the many Clydes I've been to. This was my first time to the DC location. I loved the ambiance and the theme....pictures (painted and real) of Washington, DC.
It was not crowded, but somehow the service did not reflect this. It took awhile to get our water & non-alocholic drinks. Refilling the water seemed not do be on this waiters' radar. We did ask for bread, but got it after our meal arrived. My friend and I ordered a hamburger, etc., but I was disappointed in that it was not 'hot'....more warm and less hot. We had to ask the waiter for condiments, which is something he should have asked us knowing we ordered hamburgers , so we had to wait a bit to get mayo and ketchup! There were 6 of us dining and they were able to seat us at aq round table which was nice. Since the restaurant did not seem to be busy (it was about 1:30 on a Sunday afternoon), the service could have been a little better and food a little hotter. The manager was gracious enough to bring us 6 squares of coffee cake which was very nice. I would go back here but maybe order something else and send it back if it does not come HOT!

We ordered naked buffalo wings, six pieces. They were cold and only garnished with celery, no carrots. I ordered the Pork Schnitzel with spatzle (german noodles) and rot-kraut (red cabbage). The meat was over cooked, dry, and cold. The noodles were cold and appeared left over, not fresh. My date had a salad and it was fine.

The waitress was not attentive. She didn’t refill our drinks, check on us after we received our food, or even bother to clear our table after we were done. We had to track her down just to get our check.

I'm not sure what using OpenTable does for reserving a table. We had 7:30 a reservation, but when got there, we were put at the bottom of the list. We got seated about 15 minutes later, which isn't too bad on a Friday night in DC, but it was another 15 minutes before anyone came by to take our order. The food did come out quickly and was really good. Our server was more than apologetic and he said they gave him too many tables. I would probably go again or maybe try a different location.

The food was very good. The manager was excellent, but our server was not on top of things. She took our drink order as well as the appetizer we wanted. 15 minutes later no sight of her. Since I know it doesn't take 15 minutes to pour a beer so the manager took over. He then took care of our order and resubmitting our appetizer. The place was rather quiet.

Been many times.

Service was inconsistent. Not bad. Just not sharp. Probably more generous with tip than we should have been.

Description of oysters by server was just wrong. Sweeter ones were not.

Oysters brought out with no one saying which oysters were which. Had to ask.

Steak served with no steak knife. Had to ask.

No one checked on table after runners brought food (recurring issue).

Open Table asked the occasion with reservation which either wasn’t shared or ignored by restaurant.

No one asked if we wanted to order dessert. It was a birthday celebration. Had to ask about desserts.

Always liked Clyde’s. Service ok. Not great.

Met some family visiting from out of town. We were a party of 8. We had a 7:00 reservation and we didn't get our food until 8:45. We had 2 young adults with us who were starving. Waiter was nice but seemed overwhelmed by our party of 8. We did complain but no one really did anything. Food was adequate. Even though we were in corner, the place was so noisy, we could barely hear each other. There are plenty of other places nearby to eat at. Clyde's did not come through on this occasion.

The food was good but the service was very poor. We ordered an appetizer which the waiter forgot and it was delivered at the same time of the entree’s. The waiter then lied and tried to blame it on the kitchen. When I asked to speak to a manager, the waiter became nasty and I had to ask several times for the manager.

I've only been to Clyde's for brunch on the weekends and I've enjoyed it each time. The vibe is nice and the food and service is consistently good. They are in Chinatown and can be busy during peak times, so I'd recommend booking a reservation in advance for the best experience.
