We know it is no fun to wear a mask while enjoying a night out, but our staff's safety is no laughing matter.
We require all guests to wear a mask while moving about the restaurant, and when speaking to Clyde's employees.
Masks have been a hot topic, with passionate views on all sides. With our team and their families' health at stake, we must err on the side of caution. We hope you will understand and look forward to the day, hopefully soon, when we can all throw our masks in the trash.

Food just wasnt what I am used to at Clydes. Tthe ruben was missing the flavor I am used to and the ketchup was dry for the fries, like it had been sitting under a heater for tool long and it got sticky.
We ate inside with another couple also vaccinated. Table spacing was quite adequate, the place was a little quieter than usual because of the spacing. Food was outstanding as usual.
Celebrating my birthday with friends!
The cauliflower steak sounded appealing until it arrived and there was not any meat. It was not listed as a vegetarian meal and while it tasted okay, it wasn’t great.
Delightful, as always. Crab cakes, burgers, wine. Great food and great service.
Service was friendly. Our server was super nice and super friendly. It made the experience one of a kind. Although our timing was still very close for closing time, they still served us and were very friendly about it.
Had a very nice dinner. The food and service was great.
Always a good dining experience at Clydes Great food , lots of menu choices, reasonable prices and great service What more could you ask for ?
Clydes in Reston has always been a great place for us! Thanks so much for making it great!
Clydes was absolutely fantastic! The food was delicious, the service was phenomenal, and most importantly, they took significant measures to ensure the safety of their guests. Can't wait to go back!
Food was excellent! It would’ve been nice them knowing that we were sitting there as a couple not to have five people sit right behind us which were really loud, when we were trying to have a quaint evening!! Waiter was great. Thankyou
I’ve been to Clyde’s several times and several locations. Since COVID the quality level has been dropping. This by far was the worst meal I’ve had at Clyde’s. Steak was smothered in sauce, vegetables were bland. I felt like the meal I was served I could have received at a casual dining chain restaurant and would have been far less expensive. I won’t be going back until I hear that things are improving.
Excellent food and service
Was a sweet time with my daughter, we were treated wonderfully, thank you!!!
Because of Covid, we sat outside in freezing temps and were left alone too long before ordering. The food did come out wonderfully hot! But, the two hamburgers that were to be medium were well-done. But, we will be back. Thanks for serving us on a freezing day.
My wife’s entree trout was fantastic, as were each of our bowls of red crab soup. However, my duck confit entree was less than palatable. Why? Because I asked to substitute the gnocchi with Broccolini and what they used were only the hard stringy stems from the broccolini, which of course were inedible. Not one florete of broccolini. I of course shared this information with the manager. He offered to comp our dessert but we refused. The manager and waitress were very understanding. We love all of the Clydes but this was certainly not up to their standards. Just sat there wondering why a chef would have done that?
My husband and I had a nice time dining outside - until I got violently ill afterwards. The only thing different I had from him was the salmon. It’s a shame because I love Clyde’s but probably won’t be returning.
Deviled eggs were too salty and not good
The watercress with the steak frites was disgusting
The steak was cooked perfectly
The broclini was terrific
Love the chimmichuri sauce
Thank you clydes for delicious food! We chose to have outdoor dining and their heat lamps kept us warm at night. Would definitely come again!
Classy, quaint dinner location.
Haven't been in many years. The food was ok and very standard fare. Sort of like a TGIF. Thats not a bad thing but it just didn't impress me that much. Probably won't be back in another 10 years or so.
Very nice location, but food was not great and very small portions almost thought thought I ordered and appetizer. You should offer 16 and 20 oz draft beers which is the norm now.
Great for a family lunch! Have two young kids and the staff were great!
Service was great. Food was delicious.
We enjoyed dining outside. The food was very good but our waiter did not come to check on us but three times in our 1 1/2 hours at the restaurant. Clyde’s wait staff are not as well trained as Jacksons or Mon Ami Gabi staff. We will continue to visit Clyde’s for the food even though the wait staff is friendly but not good.
They offered both indoor and outdoor dining, but it was cold outside and the indoors was spacious, so we chose indoors. They easily social distanced us from other patrons. The food and drink selection was very good and we all enjoyed the meals and drinks we chose.
Clyde's now has propane heaters in the patio area -- about one for each table. Even with temps in the 40s, we were comfortable.
We live in Baltimore, but had to go down to Reston on an errand. Never had been to Clyde’s before, but decided to give it a try based upon the reviews and the menu I saw on line. Wow! It was a great choice.....one of the best meals we’ve had out in ages, especially at their price point. I had the chicken and my husband had the trout. Both were excellent and the portions very generous. Covid protocols were carefully followed and service was friendly and efficient. Definitely will return!
Celebrating a friend’s birthday. Service, food and cocktails were marvelous!
We made reservations for our 16 wedding anniversary, and the food was not hot or tasted good .
The appetizers was the fried Goat cheese in honey . This tasted very good and was the highlight of the meal and experience.
My wife’s meal did not look or taste like anything special , her dish was the Cuban sandwich . When the dished came to the table it looked like a sandwiched squished between two pieces of french bread and lacked taste and passion, the boiled ham was the cheapest ham that could go on a sandwich , the pulled pork was dry and the sandwich had no taste . My wife asked for some kind of spicy mustard or Mayo and she was brought yellow mustard . This did not help with the taste .
I had the short rib and it looked sad on the plate . The menu description and what was on the plate was very disappointing . The purée cauliflower was not puréed ( chunky mashed cauliflower) the spinach was not fresh ( frozen) no taste and the short rib had no taste , it was liked it was boiled in water , it was tuff and not tender but I had to salt and pepper this several times to just eat it . For the price it was not worth it .
We were very disappointed because a few years back we stopped here and the food and beverages were great .
My wife and I will really consider ever coming back to this restaurant. Like I said I had hoped that this special night for us the food could of looked and tasted good . It really felt and looked like no passion in the kitchen , we eat with our eyes first so when the plates hit the table the expectations and experience left the building .
We had a great outdoor dining experience. Excellent service and delicious food. The outdoor heaters are perfect for a mild winter day. I will return soon! I’d recommend Clyde’s without any hesitancy!
We usually go to Clyde's Willow Creek Farm but decided to visit the Reston restaurant for a change for New Year's Eve. The appetizers and entrees were great and we really like the decor/theme of the restaurant. And Reston Town Center was still festively decorated along with ice skaters in the rink. It was a really nice evening out.
Been dining here for years. Always get treated like family. It’s also one of the few places I can eat without a worry about my shellfish allergy. They can always accommodate. Great staff.
Always a wonderful experience even in the midst of a pandemic
Family Christmas Eve tradition. This year, the restaurant was quieter than normal due to COVID. We enjoy the atmosphere. Food and service was excellent as usual. If you are concerned about COVID protocols, the staff is doing a great job to ensure your safety and theirs.
Enjoyed the dining experience. Looking forward to having the wonderful experience again.
Everything was very good at CLyde's on Dec. 23rd. Food was very good.
The food is excellent!
Trout is especially good.
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at Clyde's of Reston. The server was extremely attentive and the food was just oustanding!
