Mask Usage
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.

It was quiet. The selection of menu items were varied and interesting. Prices seemed very reasonable. But then we received our meals and the portion sizes were quite small. FiNce had the trout Parmesan and it was delicious. Fish was a decent size but they should have been more generous with the potatoes and green beans. I had a pasta dish with eggplant. Small little scoop of rigatoni. No side salad or soup. Pasta is literally the cheapest thing you can serve. Come on.

Love Clydes for lunch. They have a great selection of salads and are always willing to add and subtract from the menu ingredients to make it the way I like it. There patio is particularly nice in good weather as it is away from the street and shaded with lots of umbrellas.

Our server, Armando, knocked things out of the park. He was so personable and made the experience so special and memorable.

My friends & I must've been at his table for centuries, but he checked in at all the appropriate times, consistently anticipated our needs, and we never felt rushed.

He gave us detailed recommendations for every part of our meal/drinks and he made sure we always had what we needed.

I'm a type 1 diabetic and he was very thorough and detailed about what types of cocktails may be better than others regarding sugar content.

He was so engaging throughout and I honestly looked forward to when he'd next chat with us next despite it being a busy Friday night.

I've had nothing but positive experiences at Clyde's Reston and am really happy we got paired with Armando. Will definitely ask for him the next time I visit.

I had Parmesan crusted trout without the hollandaise sauce. Dry fried fish. Very disappointed. But what a lovely patio - perfect ambience and good service.

We are on the patio and so noise level was perfect! Ty for asking. Super important to use that it not be noisy. They accommodated our request to switch to outside seating. We so appreciated that!

Not many brunch options if that’s what you’re looking for- maybe 4/5! The lemon ricotta pancakes are delish, but come hungry. The fried chicken and biscuit was a sandwich rather than a platter.

Service was extremely slow for a slow Sunday morning. Love the outdoor seating.

Consistent good food, nice range of menu items, delicious cocktails. Restaurant interior could use a facelift. It understood why it hasn’t been done yet given the pandemic. Received a complimentary anniversary dessert for two!

It was apparent that the restaurant was still in a post COVID-19 recovery mode. Very limited menu and a waiter who was obviously very new to that job. (got the drink order wrong, asked us if we would like to see the desert menu when we we only about half way through the entrée). But all that aside the food and the atmosphere were good. A pleasant experience overall.

Went for a casual anniversary dinner. My wife ordered the pork shoulder. Tasted fine; presentation was poor. I ordered a pesto shrimp pasta dish that was better than average. Server walking by table was belittling hostess for asking about seating people too close to close. Whole thing was meh. (Sad because we have long memories of Clyde’s as a nice place)

We had come here about 3 years ago during the holidays when it was very busy. The service was slow and the food was poor and greasy and sat like a lead brick in your stomach. We let a lot slide figuring it was because of the holiday rush. This time we had reservations at a different restaurant but they had a pipe burst and had to close down. This was the only place I could get a reservation for 6 people at the last minute. Service was good but food was extremely salty (Pork, pasta dishes, calamari). Calamari was heavily breaded and way over cooked. Pasta did not come as described. The baked salmon was the only non-salty entree but it also pretty bland. We expected better for the prices from a restaurant that is this popular. We will never go back.

Food was not good! Shrimp way over cooked. Margarita had table salt instead of rock salt. Kids pizza was so bad adult nor child thought it was good. We were told the chef was trained in Italy. Well having spent a considerable amount of time in Italy I was really looking forward to the meal. Italy would never serve the food we had. If they did they would be out of business. Waiter was excellent, hostess was great, atmosphere was well done, but the food was not on the same level by far. Better product out of the kitchen and this place would be a home run. Wish them luck.

This was the first in-restaurant dining experience my wife and I had since the COVID-19 pandemic began, and we did it with our 10-month old daughter in tow. With all that said, the staff and the service were excellent. We were able to sit outside on the patio, and the waitress make sure we felt safe and comfortable with the baby. The food was excellent, and they prepared a really nice fruit plate for our daughter. Clyde's is always a consistent winner in my book!

The server was friendly but the timing of food delivery and the food itself left much to be desired. Our entrees arrived as we had barely started our soup and salad. My daughters butter and Parmesan noodles came with just butter so we had to request the cheese. The pasta was over cooked. The server unnecessarily reached in front my face several times, close enough that she nearly bumped me. Our table was not cleared of used plates and cups so we had quite an unpleasant and crowded collection when the meal ended. Lastly the cappuccinos were not hot. The meal was costly, particularly given these mishaps. I think this experience is rare for this restaurant but it will still be some time until I return.

It was a cold, grey evening and we wanted to go someplace warm and comfortable. So where else to go! It was exactly the ambience we wanted ... and the best wings there are. It's all good at Clyde's.

Dined with neighbors and the menu had a nice variety so everyone found something to their liking. I had the pork shoulder with mashed potatoes--delicious. Neighbors raved about the trout dish they had. Nice selection of wines by the glass too.
