Lunch was great and so was our server. Food was great, it was a very crowed day, so I am not going to make note of the time it took to receive our food, because our server was that good.

Had a very pleasant dinning experience. Went for brunch on Sunday around 3PM. Got the crab cake egg benedict and it was really good. However, I found the plate to be overpriced for the qualify and presentation of food.

Love the location, large size and decor of this restaurant. It's like getting basic cuisine in a grand setting. The food is just meh. We had brunch. You don't get much food for the price. And there aren't any "brunch cocktail specials" like there are at so many other restaurants that serve Sunday brunch. The service was nice and the setting is lovely. I guess that's what you pay for.

Great food , excellent service & super value!
Where else in downtown DC (or anywhere for that matter) can you get a fresh 1lb main lobster or a lobster shepards pie for less than $20? Seriously ~ Love everything about Clyde's!

The food is okay, but nothing special, and actually I wish there were more vegetarian options and things like omelettes. I went there because the person I met there is a fan and always gets the chicken sandwich. I am the wrong person to write a review because it is just not my kind of place. The service, though, was very friendly.

Menu is very limited and stale if one eats there regularly. My favorite dish, trout parmesan, has been removed from the menu -- it was a staple there for decades. Desserts are a bit too elaborate - after a meal, something simple would be good. Service is excellent and attentive. Noise level tends to get extreme when the place is full. Needs more bathroom facilities -- one toilet and 3 urinals in men's room is not adequate to serve a full house.

I have to admit, I was a bit hesitant about making a reservations for Clyde's as I considered it a local chain, & I'm not a big fan of eating at chain restaurants, but Clyde's of Gallery Place exceeded my expectations by a wide margin. I was impressed by the number of bars that were available & the staff was extremely friendly. I thought the menu was quite limited though, so that was a major drawback for me. My wife had the pumpkin ravioli which she thought had too much of a cream sauce on it. I had the blue catfish (blackened) & it was fantastic. Overall, not a bad experience & if I happen to be in the District & looking for a place to eat on short notice, I won't hesitate to give Clyde's a consideration.

Was seated upstairs in a nice booth. The specials and existing menu offered a great selection. We ordered lobster, coleslaw, fries, and blackened catfish. Every dish was cooked to perfection. Perfect venue before attending an event at the Capital One Arena. I will see definitely be back!Thank

Only went here for conveniemce before a concert next door. Lobster bisque was thin and didn't have much lobster meat, fries were over salted, chicken wings were skinny and tiny, lobster arrived cut in half so guts hung out. Arugula salad was excellent, so was the service.

Everything was great. Two in my party were a little late, but held the table until they arrived. Great drinks, mussels were excellent, as was the service. My only suggestion would be to have a couple more non-meat apps. Definitely will be coming back. The place was loud, great atmosphere before the Guns n Roses show. We sat in the bar.

Would be five stars all around but for one waitress who every time she passed us was throwing out a negative comment on something that we could not help but hear. All else was grand, including our waiter Will. Great ambiance, can hear each other talk, good prices for location, varied food and drink selection.

Clydes is our go-to place for special occasions and this dinner was no exception. We had relatives in from out of town. Our server was very attentive to our large party with all kinds of different requests. The only downside was that the one item on the menu my husband really wanted (fish & chips), they were out of and then on top of it, the beer he wanted (evo lot 3, which was on the oyster menu, but not the regular menu), they no longer carried. He was very disappointed, but he chose something else. It certainly wouldn't deter us from going back and it's not a reason downgrade the restaurant in my opinion. It just would have been nice to know what items they were out of before ordering.

New server, bless her heart. We asked for apps to come out before lobster main course. We wondered what was taking so long for apps to come out. They came out WITH the main course. Server said I'll be right back with lobster utensils and bib, which meant lobster was getting stone cold. Butter was congealing by time he brought them. Which meant we were eating all our food much too quickly...before everything got cold. Was not my best Clyde's experience. Will say that staff was pleasant and charming as always.

I made my reservation through Open Table over a month before the event. When we arrived at the Front Desk, I requested a Booth. The Hostess said no booths are available and they seated us at the end of a group of tables and had to bring up a chair so that our party could be seated. Across from this table were two open booths and within minutes they seated a party of 2 at each booth. I only come to this restaurant when we are attending an event at the Verizon Center and that will now be the only time I will return. Very disappointed.
