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.
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
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.
The food was great. We had steak with truffle fries and crab cake. Steak was really good and crab cake was okay. We had peach doughnut for dessert. It had a vegetable taste, I personally don’t like it. In overall, it’s a restaurant that I want to revisit, and I’d like to try spaghetti next time
Absolutely fantastic hamburger. Shenandoah beef, well prepared, cooked to perfection. I had mine with blue cheese, and it was delicious. Arguably the best burger in DC, and we have a lot of places that try to do burgers.
Our server was delightful and attentive, meal was great we both are vegetarian, quite pleasantly full so no dessert...but those around us seemed to enjoy there's.
The food was excellent especially the crab appetizer. We had burgers and they were excellent and prepared to perfection. Great service and great atmosphere. Will be returned often to explore more menu options!
The food was OK but nothing spectacular. The service was excellent. The room was noisy and the tables made you feel like you were all cramped in. We were early for our reservation time of 6:30 by about a half hour but the staff were able to seat us right away which was nice.
It was really nice service was fast food was amazing
Absolutely fantastic cioppino. Clydes does many dishes very well, and this cioppino was definitely done exceedingly well. Like many Americans, I really enjoy Italian food, and Clydes did this meal superbly. Great sauce, lots of great seafood. I particularly thought the bucatini as a pasta was a great idea.
I'd love to see Clydes Georgetown put this dish on the permanent menu.
I had such a great meal there last year when I attended my annual meeting that I returned this year. Last year I had the butternut squash soup and it was the best I had ever tasted. This year I had a vegetarian pasta dish and it was adequate at best. It was too expensive for the small portion and it was more of a broth than a sauce. I had a great booth in the dining room, which I appreciated. The side with the bar is very, very noisy. Service was excellent - very gracious and attentive waitress.
Perfect for a quiet dinner on a cold evening. Happy to see an old favorite does not disappoint! Lots of GF choices too. And thank you Chef for visiting our table to answer our questions.
