My wife and I were celebrating the anniversary of our first date (which was actually at Clyde's) and also the anniversary date of our engagement (on the same date, February 15th). These are both very special occasions for us, so we thought we'd return to where and when it all started and we were very happy with everything! We'll be certain to return again soon! The easy metro access this time made it easy for us to avoid traffic and just enjoy our evening together... Our thanks Clyde's and their staff for making our anniversary so special...
Great veal chop but wouldnt recommend the salmon. Service was very good but the greeter was less than enthusiastic.
I was very pleased with the service and the food. The noise level was a little disturbing when seated but it got better as the evening went on. Our waiter, Allen, was excellent. He was helpful, patient, and pleasantly answered our questions.
They lost our reservation. They lost our appetizer and our dinner orders so the dinner took nearly 3 hours. The waiter and manager were very apologetic and only charged us for wine and dessert.
Crab cakes were over cooked...
Restaurant atmosphere and food were excellent. Service was slow, appetizers never arrived before main course, and Open Table questioned why we missed our reservation, which was not the case. It was Valentines Day and the restaurant was crowded, but even with that taken into account, the service could have been much better.
The service was great as usual and the food was excellent. Can't wait to visit again.
Went there for a date the day before Valentine's Day. Half price wine bottles with a great selection. Large menu with something for everyone. Got the Sirloin and Stuffed Acorn Squash, which were great. Topped it off with their Gingerbread Pudding which was a unique and tasty dessert. Wonderful ambiance, wonderful service, and an overall wonderful restaurant.
Service was slow. Our food came out later than other tables that ordered at the same time. Staff didnt seem concerned about delay, it made us late for a flight.
We were meeting a friend - and wanted a menu that covered a lot of different tastes - and easy for her to find. Clydes fit the bill. Also needed a place to park without a far walk for one of us - parked in the garage under so did not even need to get out in the rain.
Our server was fantastic - he was patient while we waited for the rest of our party - and very helpful. The server was hit with a large party and it took him awhile to bring another beer - and he could not stop apologizing!! He did the same later.
The food was delicious - the Shrimp Fra Diavlo (sp) had 8 huge gulf shrimp that were amazing. Two had crab cakes that were also declared delicious. The fish and chips could have had another piece of fish - but was tasty.
No reason to seat a group of 3 to be surrounded by 3 tables of 5 people which are only designed to seat 4. Noise level ruins the meal.
The steak was not tough but was very difficult to cut. Maybe the restaurant needs new knives. Beer battered onion rings should have an onion flavor too, not just a batter flavor.
Fabulous! Best chili ever!
The food was excellent. The service was overall fine. The noise level was almost intolerable. It will prevent me from choosing Clydes again anytime soon
The restaurant was starting to get busy when we arrived. The host forgot to give my 2 kids crayons (but gave them kids menus). When my daughter asked for bread from our waitress she was told "I'll get to it soon". We used to get a pitcher of water and basket of bread for the table automatically by a bus boy or runner. In fact, I needed to ask for a second glass of water for both my husband and I. Mid way through our dinner the waitress changed her attitude and provided better service.
I had wanted a crab cake sandwich for dinner (like I always get at Clyde's restaurants). It was listed in small print under the crab cake entree and did not mention that it came with french fries and cole slaw. Honestly, the crab cake at Tower Oaks is much better (Crab is in bigger chunks and not stringy).
My husband had to send back his medium rare bacon cheeseburger because it was cooked medium well. When it came back, it had no bacon and was still medium well.
As a family we like to go to the Clyde's restaurants because the food and service is usually the same across the board. Next time we are in downtown DC for a game or event, we will probably look to go somewhere else and just continue to go to Tower Oaks near home.
It was a Saturday and we had a party of seven. The food was just okay, two guests sent their plates back. Service was slow. Our waiter was very nice and comped a dessert and one of the meals. I'd go back, just not with a large group on a Saturday
My son is on a very special diet and they were super attentive and the chef came out and spoke with us. He allowed us to weigh the food and was super patient and understanding of our situation. The manager and server were all phenominal. We were so very thankful that they made our son's dining experience a normal one. GREAT JOB! We will be back.
Aretha was exceptional. Thanks for the wonderful experience.
We love to go to Clyde's with our young boys before a Washington Capitals game. Besides the location being convenient to the arena and the metro stops, the food is delicious. Unfortunately, the metro had us delayed by 20 minutes BUT the great folks at the host stand welcomed us and had a table ready in the bar area....a request I made, this way no one hears the boys if they are LOUD! We will be back and THANK YOU for a great start to a fun evening.
Aretha was the best. No problem returning calamari that was too salty. 2nd batch much better
Good food and good service. They forgot our appetizer but offered to make up for it with free dessert. Some of the portions are small for the price (steak). Sometimes we get bread before meal but this time we did not. Our waitress apologized and was very kind, but it was clear she was in the weeds. Busy night w/ game next door.
