Quality of food, decor, and service have gone down post-pandemic. They are doing the best they can given challenges with staffing; however, I'd probably wouldn't return anytime soon. Clydes use to be my go-to spot in Chinatown for before concerts & movies as well as out of town guests. I need to find a new spot.

I think they are likely suffering from staffing shortages and just getting back up and running after lockdown. I enjoyed my meal very much and although there were minor glitches with the kitchen. I was happy to be out eating a meal at a restaurant.

It was our first time back in a while since we are season ticket holders and we always go there before a game! It was so nice to be back and Clyde's did not disappoint. Friendly service and great food! Will always be my go to when I'm going to the Capital One Arena.

We were seated near a table w 4-6 ladies and it was too loud for normal conversation. Another party ended up requesting to be moved it was so loud. Our service was less than expected as well. He didn’t ck back frequently, didn’t offer to refill drinks. The floor manager went to every table but ours in the area we were in during our 1.5 hours there. I expected a higher level of service based I. The reviews and price point.

Haven’t been to Clydes in awhile and we decided to go back. Everything was really subpar although our server was great. Nothing was really outstanding. I felt like I could been at an Applebee’s

Not all the food was hot and the Norwegian benedict was so salty I could only eat half and regretted eating that much. Clyde's Tower Oaks Lodge food is much better

I'm so glad I made the reservations at Clyde's! I love the chain. Course I would have been better had I been in Chevy Chase or Rockville... for selfish reasons, but it was great to see my childhood best friend and her family. Aretha was very attentive!

We came here after a pre season hockey game and it wasn’t packed. The food came quickly and was good, they handled gluten free very well, we had wings and a Cesar salad and steak frites all gluten free. The service was a little slow and I didn’t get a drink that I had ordered but it was overall a fun time and the food was good.

Our waitress provided excellent service, the food was very good, and we didn't have to wait a long time for it. They seated us at a distance from other diners so that we felt safe from a health standpoint, and they require masks except when eating and drinking of course.

Calamari and salad were generous enough for 2 or more each. Swordfish steak was well prepared, firm, nicely seasoned, possibly a bit drier than needed. Fried chicken was crisp and moist.
However, I was very irritated by an apparent agreement among the server, chef, and food runners that swordfish can be farmed. I asked whether it was sourced sustainably, and the server told me "sustainably farmed." I asked her to verify that with the chef; she returned with the same answer. When the food runners brought it, I said "So this is the farmed swordfish." They said yes, "100% sustainably farmed." Language issues may have interfered, but I still do not think that swordfish can be farmed, and Clyde's needs to educate its help better.

My experience at Clyde's was great. It was a pretty slow Sunday night, but this just meant that we were able to be in a quiet corner and receive attentive service from our waitress.

Clyde's of Gallery Place has become our restaurant of choice for Sunday lunch. We have always been very well cared for by everyone who works there, but of course, the people who we spend the most time with are the people who help us plan our meal and then deliver our lunch exactly the way we ask them to. One thing never varies for me, and that is oysters to start my meal. The oysters at Clyde's of Gallery Place are always fresh and well shucked, and the selection is good. If you need help in picking a type of oyster, their experts will be of great help to you. I think that customers pick a place where they feel comfortable, and my daughter and I have found ours.

Drinks were great but overpriced. Wings were super small. Crab and artichoke dip was good but 1/2 the bread was over cooked. Cubano was good but a little greasy.

It was very nice except we had a weather cold front come through and they never adjusted their thermostat and had the AC on full blast. Talked to 3 tables and everyone was cold but the staff couldn't do anything about it. One table of 4 just got up and left. I understand that the staff are running back and forth and are not cold but...Nothing worse than sitting in a nice restaurant and freezing.

Our waiter Anthony R was very attentive but gave us plenty of time to relax and dine at our leisure. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. We dined before going to Cap One Arena for an event, it was absolutely the right choice.

The heirloom tomato salad was spectacular. Really delicious. The Summer BLT was actually a bit too large. I had that sandwich at a different Clyde's and it was so good. The one last night at Gallery Place had a little too much tomato in it. So it was a bit too tall to try to eat and the bread got soggy quickly. It was, of course, delicious, but I needed a bath after attempting to eat it.
Love Clyde's. Consistently good food in a nice atmosphere.
Juan was pretty good despite being stretched thin. He has a delightful personality and real talent.
