The food is always great!! The service usually is as well but this time it was a little subpar. We arrived about 10 mins late for our 5:30 PM (so before dinner rush) and our table wasn’t ready for our party. Once it was ready, apps came out quickly but entrees lagged. Also, they didn’t have any kids menus printed. Still great food just lacking a little of their usual luster in service.

I found a broken toothpick in my salad and it wasn't taken off of the bill. Bathroom was disgusting.

Clydes is usually really good, this was disappointing.

Clydes' of Gallery Place has become a personal favorite for several years for Thanksgiving Dinner.
From the easy booking to ample space with a delicious menu, it's very comforting to witness other singles and families celebrating the holiday in the city.
A tried and true destination!

The chef kindly blackened the salmon on the menu for us. Very good. Hummes appetizer was average. We did not know that the Caps were playing that evening. Glad we had reservations.

We always go to Clyde’s before an event at Capital One Arena. We were seated in a great area. Corinne was great. Menu was limited (they started with telling us all of the items we didn’t have). The shrimp cocktail wasn’t as good as usual, the shrimp was dry, it didn’t appear fresh, but it didn’t look or smell bad. Our meals were good.

My nephew said the steak was delicious. The bacon cheeseburger was great. My friends loved the meatloaf. Let's hope conditions allow us to dine and enjoy meals like these.

I took a couple of friends to Clyde’s for dinner because it had a menu with sufficient variety to meet everyone’s dietary needs. I had the salmon salad, which was excellent. My friends enjoyed crab cake and filet mignon. Service was much better than expected. Our server was attentive and polite. The ambiance was a bit noisy but we could still carry on a conversation. All in all, it was a good dinner and relatively affordable.

Overall, Clyde's was a nice spot for date night. Initially, we waited about 15 minutes before asking the hostess where our server was--she forgot to notify the server that we were seated. So, this was disappointing. However, our server was very pleasant and efficient. The food was delicious and we would dine there again. The hostess need to pay attention to the diners and not be so engaged in chatter or her phone.

Great service, delicious food. Unfortunately they knowingly sat us near a window where there was very loud street music. Strange stain on the bench seat where I was sitting.

Clyde’s was always a go to restaurant last time we lived in the DC metro area. So had to try it again after moving back here. It did not disappoint in any way. Good food and good service. The slight down rating for noise was the Capitals fans there just before the game. Once they left halfway through dinner the noise was fine.

It took me 45 minutes to get my food after I ordered it. People who came in after me got their food before me. I think my server forgot my order. After I waited about 30 minutes he asked me what I had ordered.

This is a tradition for our family before attending a Caps hockey game! My husband and I first went to a Clyde's in Columbia in 1976. At that time it was the only restaurant in the new town. At least when there is a hockey game, the entire staff does a great job under a bit of a time constraint.

Very convenient if you are going to a hockey game at Capital One Arena. The food was good. It can get very loud in there on game night especially if you are seated in the vicinity of the bar. The good news it is a large space so if you want something a little quieter ask not to be seated near a bar. if going on a game night book your reservation early!!
