I was extremely disappointed with Clyde's. The food was very heavy and clunky. Many people suggested the crab tower, which wasn't that great. The red velvet cake was extremely dense. The cream cheese frosting was more cheese than cream. I'm from NY so maybe my standards are higher, but I was embarrassed to take my relative here to eat. The resturant was loud and we were seated in a busy area. People kept knocking our jackets off our chairs to the floor.
We eat at Clyde’s of Georgetown pretty frequently when we are in town but this last visit was very disappointing. Our server needed to reminded twice to bring our drink and rolls then when we received our rock fish dinner the fish had an odor and did not taste fresh.
This is my go-to place in Washington for a great meal using local ingredients in a creative way. This time, I ordered the rockfish, which is sea bass over a winter medley of vegetables. It was cooked perfectly and timely. My dining partner ordered the Long Island duck, which he loved. The atmosphere is nice. It is an old-fashioned saloon with different nooks and rooms so it never gets too loud. And the staff is phenomenal, making it a great experience for all and always eager to please. When I wanted to change my order, he was happy to do so. Thank you for making this a wonderful experience all around. I look forward to returning next month.
The Manager Aubrie made our dinner especially great!
Crowded and very noisy. Terrible table by drafty door. Long hair found in dinner. No recompense.
Clyde s does what it does well. For an always busy restaurant the kitchen turns out perfectly fine meals. Be sure to make a reservation and if you go on Sunday almost all wines (cellar wines being the exception) are half priced.
My wife and I had a great time with our baby and some friends. The restaurant was kind enough to change our reservation to make room for the baby. Great service and excellent food!
We made a reservation, but watched (2) different groups with the same number of people that came in after us get seated while our table was "being checked and cleared." In the end we were seated at a booth that was clear the entire time we were waiting. Our waitress was over taxed with too many tables. Food was good, but nothing special considering the prices. Very busy with a lot of turnover, movement and noise.
Going away dinner
I had nice time at the restaurant the food was great
Enjoyed our lunch in Georgetown! Crab cakes For the win!
I made a 4:30 pm reservation the morning of, on a Sunday. I came here to close out the weekend of my boyfriend's 30th birthday. We arrived a little after 4 pm and were seated immediately. The hosts were warm and welcoming, as well as our waiters. We were seated next to a fire place, which was a nice touch and kept us warm. I didn't order food, but the two guava margaritas are amazing! Mind you, I'm a whiskey girl. My bf ordered the sliders, my sister ordered the veggie burger, and our friend ordered the buffalo wings. I didn't hear any complaints. We had an enjoyable time and even as more parties filled the place, it was still an intimate setting. Thanks Clyde's of Georgetown Sunday 2-9-18 evening staff!
P.S. The bread was delicious! (I did eat that)
Clydes brunch is always consistent. The Chesapeake Eggs Benedict is a must.
Been here twice before and was really excited to show this place to my friend who loves muscles..I bragged about how good the muscles were only to be disappointed by the fact that they changed the menu and stopped serving the muscles that had before. We tried to muscles that was new on the menu but of course wasn't the same..They were grainy and overcooked. Also i ordered the steak and eggs because it was brunch and then came another disappointment. The steak was really tough and it was medium and i asked for medium well. Needless to say i will not be to this Clydes for a long time..
Our table was extremely close to others on our left and right. We overheard all their conversations and had trouble hearing each other. I would not return unless I could be guaranteed a quieter setting.
