Food and service always reliable. We had a very loud toddler near us - a place as big as this might consider having a family section so business discussions need not be part of socializing the youngest of guests!

Service was slow but the food was great. If they are trying to save money by cutting back on servers, that is a poor way to do business. It was the evening of a Caps game, you know you will be busy.

Love Clyde's, especially before a Caps game. The atmosphere and professionalism of the staff is amazing. Great menu, the food came out quickly, unfortunately the drinks did not. Hockey fans pregaming likely led to this but we didn't mind. Highly recommend Clyde's of Gallery Place.

The only thing there was no whole lobsters on the menu, and that was bizarre for this restaurant to be as extravagant and upperclass fine dining. We looked online and there seemed to be false advertising on your pictures of your entrees show whole lobster and that's one of the main reasons for our visit to Clyde's.

Went after Georgetown Basketball game, a little crowded (due to Georgetown game ending and a Capitals game to start later that evening). But they were very efficient in honoring our reservations. Our server was professional and efficient. The food was delicious as usual.

We had reservations for 5:45 and did not receive water or bread until 6:30pm. This was after we requested the manager. We had tickets to the game at Capitol One Arena and were looking forward to a nice meal before the game. In addition, it was my husband's birthday. Very disappointed in the service.

Go there before every Caps home game. Had a problem with the kitchen being backed up this time but the manager came over and comped our meal!!! Always great service - this was an exception but the manager made up for it and we still made it for puck drop.

The service was shockingly bad. I’ve been going to Clyde’s restaurants for 30 years and have never experienced anything like this. The only thing worse was the attitude of the server. So out of character for Clyde’s...or maybe not.

Our server and food were great, but the kitchen had issues. My daughter ordered salad and banana bread as appetizers, and we both ordered entrees. Our server came back promptly to tell us the banana bread was out, so we ordered biscuits instead. Someone else then came out probably 10-15 minutes later to tell us the same thing, and we told them we’d reordered already. Then our entrees came out 10-15 minutes later, but no salad or biscuits until after we mentioned they were missing.

The restaurant was packed with the pre-game Caps crowd, so service was slow. Our meal took almost 90 minutes from order to check. Luckily, with a 10:30 reservation, there was no rush and we had a great time.

Clyde's remains a dependable spot. You want a good meal, you'll get it, and the atmosphere is lively. I encourage them to integrate additional offerings.

Birthday Celebration & this place was just what needed-1st time visitors & we'll definitely be back. The food was absolutely delicious - steak w/ mushroom gravy on side, raw oysters, oysters rockafella, pork belly appetizer, desserts...awesome!! We sent the greens back (too crunchy) & got the creamed spinach-perfect. The Host Tariq was FABULOUS & so was our server Aisha (I know that's not spelled right). Thank you for a wonder Birthday Dinner out.

Perfect for what we use it for: A jolly and exciting place for a burger and a beer before (or after) a game. We are always so very impressed with the paintings, sculpyures and other wonderful artistic touches that this (and i imagime all) Clyde’s properties have as inspired by the near-genius of the late Richard McCooey.
