My two business friends had not been there and they were both impressed with the ambiance and the food and drink. Except that the 2nd Old Fashioned, traditional type, was way too sweet for the consumer and he traded it to someone else at the table.
Fantastic Atmosphere, great service, and excellent food.
We went for an office farewell lunch to Clyde's gallery place. There somehow they got to know that the person who made the reservations had his birthday on that day. It was really nice of them to bring out a small cake as that took the birthday boy by surprise. It was a small but very cute gesture on the part of Clyde's to lighten the day up! The waitress was very courteous.
I was extremely disappointed in the level of service amount of time spent at Clyde’s. I made a reservation a week in advance and I was seated when I arrived. However, it took 30 minutes for someone to come take a drink order. It took 90 minutes to receive food, and tables that ordered after us received their food first. I intentionally picked Clyde’s because I was attending an event right next door and knew I should be able to enjoy a meal within 2 hours. However, we were scrambling to get our food and the check 2 hours into the reservation. It was apparent that the restaurant was not equipped to handle the amount of people trying to dine that evening, and it was also apparent that individuals who made reservations ahead of time were not prioritized. I will not make this mistake again.
we have been to your restaurant numerous times but the service we got last Sunday was atrocious. we had to keep trying to locate the waiter. people ordered drinks which never came
we had to keep tracking him down so we could place our order. however, this was the first time we had an experience like this, hope never again
Have dined at the different Clydes around the area many times. Went to the one at the gallery because we’re going to a concert and the location was convenient. Everything was fine except for our server. He was either new, or he just needs to improve. You could see the managers helping him with his other tables. He always seem to be rushing around. There was even times were he was running which is never a good sign. Everything that he was doing seem to take longer than expected. Luckily Clydes has table runners so others brought our food, otherwise that would’ve been slow also.
Fantastic food and great service. You can never go wrong eating at Clyde’s!
We frequent Clyde’s Willow Creek often. Went to a concern next door and thought we would try this one. Everything was good, except Clyde’s saying that I did not show up for dinner reservations. Got the email while I was at the table eating dinner.
Really convient if attending an event at The Arena. Lots if seating areas and several bars.
Consistently receive excellent food and service at Clyde's. Best Salmon burger I've ever had. Extensive brunch menu but not strictly brunch items, you can still order lunch items. Reasonable drink prices. I wish they would open in New Jersey, this place would be very successful in Hoboken, Jersey City or Princeton. Our go to place when visiting DC
I was really disappointed that the Atlantic salmon salad I loved is no longer on the menu, but the chef was able to prepare something similar so I was happy with my meal. Food was good and service was also good considering it was a holiday and the restaurant was pretty packed.
As usual, Clyde's was spectacular. Great food, great ambiance, and good service!
Ask for a booth, because the tables in the side rooms are uncomfortable and placed near tables with bigger parties. The bigger parties are louder and rowdier since a lot of ppl there are going to the Capital One Arena and are having a "good time". The food and service were both great, however.
It was just ok...burger was overcooked but the cauliflower appetizer was amazing!
This restaurant is one of several Clyde's Restaurants all of which are absolutely excellent. It's worth the trip to go to any of them. The food, surroundings, ambiance, etc. make the meal a special occasion.
Excellent time with the in-laws. Food was absolutely amazing as always.
server was awful, only saw her twice the entire time there, once to take drink orders which arrived after the meal came and second to deliver the check. Manager and food runners took our order and delivered the food, which was fine.
Apps werr great. Had chilli and crab dip. Decided on the burger and it wasn't the best. It was cooked as request but the meat wasn't seasoned very well at all. If i go back i will stay away from the burger. Staff was friendly and we didn't have to wait past our reservation time.
Birthday Date..💛🎉...I made an open table reservation a week ahead of time for a weeknight...I wanted to surprise my special man, after a day of Museum touring (and we live about 2 hours out of the area)...and given we love Clyde’s Willow Creek (from previous travel) I had to try this location for our celebration ...they accommodated everything I asked for via open table and even additions of a birthday cake surprise that I requested... we had a quiet romantic table upstairs in the corner. Our service was superior and being indecisive and talking with our server, everyyyy recommendation was spot on with our taste...from wine selection, Salad, entree and a fabulous surprise dessert...what a special memory dining there...loved it!!
Clyde's is a Washington institution. They offer great food and service. The crabcakes are very good.
All I can say is that everything was up to and above standard. I will be back. Great job
Went for a quick meal before a wizards game. We ordered the roast pork sandwich and a french dip. Both were very well made. Only complaint is that it is very noisy between the bar and the stereo speakers. If you want to hear your dinner guests then maybe sit up stairs.
I go for every home Capitals game and am never disappointed. Great food and fast service. Love it!
Great menu, food & service. Great place before a game at Capital One Arena.
Clyde's is a reliable DC institution that I've enjoyed for more that 40 years and it never disappoints.
Went for brunch on a Sunday morning. The restaurant was not overly crowded but we had painfully slow service. Drinks came slow, waitress forgot about our appetizer order. This seems to be the norm unless you sit at the bar. Food was fine (except the Parmesan cauliflower which is delish), nothing special. Building has great architectural features.
The food was great. The service was not. It was a very busy Saturday night.
Clyde's is a large restaurant with plenty of atmosphere. Large paintings grace the walls. The food is very good and not too overpriced for DC. The service was quite good, almost too fast.
My friend and I ate here the other day and we had a wonderful time. The waitress was so nice and pleasant and even made some nice small talk to us. When I had a question about the menu, the waitress answered as best as she could and was very polite. I had a grilled salmon entrée with Maryland crab soup which was just delicious. My friend had a pork dish that he enjoyed. We had a wonderful time. We'll be back again soon.
Wonderful decor and ambiance, mixed with great food and service led to an outstanding experience!
My drink and burger both were delicious. However, our server, Liz G., was OUTSTANDING! She was so pleasant, prompt, and never intrusive. The next time I dine at Clyde's, I will ask to be seated specifically in Liz G's section. She's a great person!
Great! We went twice during the A10 tournament and enjoyed everything both times.
Great decor and convenient location. Great food!
Food food. Service not so much.
Must have been short handed. Couple parties going on. At least they realized and comped drink and desserts.
Great service. Knowledgeable waitress, accommodating. Food was tasty and good. Large portions, reasonable prices. Good value. We would definitely go again.
I love Clyde's but this is probably my last trip there. My friend and I were given a booth with a table so large we could barely get in the seat - coupled with an overflowing table cloth that nearly got pulled off in our attempts to enter and exit the booth. We felt like we were reclining in the awkward position our bodies were forced into. This isn't the first time I've had this problem its a shame that such a wonderful meal had to be eaten in physical discomfort. Probably would have been fine if I'd been 20 pounds lighter and several inches taller, but I'm not.
It was 'just ok'. The service was fair; the waiter brought us the wrong appetizer and was sparse while we were there.
Had an excellent business lunch and the service was exceptional by Franklin
We've been to Clydes a number of times, and we haven't had a bad meal. They have a nice menu, ranging from sandwiches/burgers to dinners. They also offer a number of vegetarian options. The prices are reasonably good considering the quality of the food, the unique ambiance and the fact that you're in the middle of Washington, DC.
On this visit, we had the butternut squash ravioli, salmon, and a creative acorn squash (vegan) dish. Everything was excellent.
My only negative comment was that the service was just ok. It took us 10 minutes to be greeted by a waiter (after we flagged him down). We saw bread on another table, but we needed to ask if they had bread available. The dinner itself also took a while (perhaps about 30 minutes) to get served despite the fact that it wan't particularly full at around 9 p.m. in the evening.
Overall, it was a very good, and we look forward to another visit.
Excellent food and service
