Clyde's of Reston Ratings and Reviews
It has been years since I was at a Clyde's and I was pleasantly surprised just how much better than "good" the Reston restaurant was the other night. Sufficient variety in the menu and the wine list was quite reasonably priced...special points for having a Verdejo on the list, by the way.
The food was delicious but the wait for the food was an hour. We had an 1130 reservations and the table was not ready when we arrived. It took 2 hours from start to finish, which shouldn't happen for lunch. People around us were getting served before us even after arriving after us. Not a choice for a birthday luncheon, too long.
It was Valentine's Day so we expected to wait long for our table even though we made a reservation. We waited 30 minutes happily and patiently. It was clear the staff were working hard to get everyone seated. Once seated we ordered delicious food and drink (crab dip is amazing). It took probably 45 minutes for our entrees to come out because of a mix up but we did not even notice because we were having such a good time and were satisfied by our appetizer. Still, our waiter compted us our dessert. What a perfect Valentine's Day.
It's a chain restaurant, I believe we got what we payed for. It was a solid 2 star restaurant and I'm not going to return.
I had a reservation for 7:30PM and I reached at 7:25PM. I was only seated at 7:50PM. Given the prices at the restaurant, I understand why they didn't offer drinks while we waited, however I would have been a lot happier and a lot more likely to return had they offered us a complimentary drink while we waited to be seated. We spent 120$ for dinner, 2 drinks would have cost them a few dollars.
After being seated, the waiter didn't arrive for 5 minutes. He took the order and didn't get us bread for another 10 minutes. Our food came a few minutes after he brought us the bread. The waiter only came back to check on us when we called him. He didn't check on us at all. At the end, our bill had an item that we hadn't ordered. We had to get it fixed which delayed our stay by another 5 minutes.
The steak was good for the price. I ordered medium rare and it was mostly medium rare - the thickest part was a little rare. I don't mind rare meat, so it's ok. Also the steak was only 37$, so whatever.
My wife ordered bolognese pasta. It was a mess. The pasta was overcooked and the sauce and pasta kind of gelled together. Yuck. The service was terrible, we were hungry, and we had already waited for about an hour since we got to the restaurant, so we didn't return it.
The brownie sundae was delicious. The ice-cream to brownie ratio was perfect.
Valentines Day, so the crowd was pretty heavy. Reservation for 7:00, arrived at 6:55, waited about 20 minutes for our table. As always, the ambience was great, the food was delicious, and the wait staff was friendly and responsive. Because of the special occasion, there was a strolling violinist ambling through the restaurant playing romantic music. Considering the location, the atmosphere and the wonderful menu, the prices are actually quite reasonable. One of my favorites for dining with my wife.
Valentine's Day is probably not the best time to maximize the experience of dining at Clydes, one of my favorite restaurants. While the food was still excellent, the ambiance of a special occasion was disrupted by the additional tables the restaurant set up in every possible location, including where we were seated next to the foyer waiting area. There was no light on or above the table, so my wife had to use her cell phone flashlight to read the menu. The proximity to the door, as well as the guests waiting to be seated, distracted from the normally intimate experience I have always enjoyed at Clydes. I was also disappointed that there was not a special Valentine's Day prix fixe menu offered. The overall experience was still good but it didn't live up to my expectations for a memorable Valentine's dinner with my date.
My fiance and I went for an early Valentine's dinner, they had done a good job decorating for the holiday a day early. Service was great right off the bat as we were seated by a manager, Dimitri, who let us know about how Clyde's has been doing farm to table for years. Our server was Chris (nice wine presentation!) along with a trainee who worked well together. I had the catfish, my fiance the firebird sandwich which we both enjoyed. We left full and happy, thank you to the Clyde's of Reston team for making our night special!
In years past we were very pleased with the food selection and service. Our last visit failed to meet the food selection and taste. The sirloin steak ordered by my son and myself was absolutely the worst steak I have ever had in any restaurant. We paid $50 for two steaks that were stringy and tough. Pot roast would have been far better. The au gratin potatoes had no taste. To be fair the fish a chips were good as was the Italian dish. I really enjoyed the Brussel sprouts as well. Overall the restaurant needs to improve on the food selection and as far as the meat, they need to hire a new person to order the beef and/or preparers . They clearly do not know cuts of meat or how to prepare it.
Terrible waitress my son had a steak and ask if he can have the 3 sauces, she said that wasn’t possible.
She could it offer for an extra cost but didn’t and when she brought the bill, I notice it what a lot less money than what we had consumed and I told her that she had brought the wrong bill and her reply was “you could of gotten lucky” and I reply I was just being honest.
Good meal overall but not the best. There was a large group (24) of teenagers adjacent to us. They were very respectful but I believe the kitchen became overwhelmed. My $47 Cowboy Rib Eye took 40 minutes to come out only to be served cold. The manager, in superb customer service fashion and without hesitation, gave me the steak on the House. Least he could do and it was appreciated. We were celebrating my son's birthday so this was kind of a bummer. Nevertheless, the cocktails were awesome - try the Holy Grail! And the milkshakes? Well, the birthday boy loved it!
Final note, our server, Don, was a gentleman through and through.
Celebrated my moms birthday at clydes and the experience was great! Usually restaurants get freaked out with big parties, however, we had excellent service. Our waitress handled our big group effectively and kindly. We brought our own cake and they took it to the back and cut up the cake with no problem. The food was good, and the service great. Definitely recommend it for big events.
A bit disappointed in the dining experience. A regular diner at Clyde's, service was the least attentive and timely I have ever experienced. The time between ordering drinks, getting bread service, and between courses was much longer than normal on a relatively slow evening. My dining partners enjoyed their crab cake and Korean Hot Bowl entrees, but the Roasted Butternut Squash was subpar. Butternut squash was inconsistently cooked from semi-crunchy to over cooked, and did not have a good roasted butter nut squash flavor. While I normally enjoy the Clyde's experience due to the consistency of service and food, that was not the case on this visit. Not eager to go back anytime soon.
Enjoyed the recommendations given by the waitress. Had shrimp appetizer and rockfish as entree which were spot on. We were seated five minutes of arriving at the reservation time. Only downside was that the restaurant was packed for dinner and the booth seat we sat in was uncomfortable for one of the guests I was with, we couldn’t get another table with chairs.
My out of town friend whom I hadn’t seen in 17 years and I went to Clyde’s in Reston on a Wednesday evening. Very vibrant and fun feel. Some noise so if you want quiet perhaps ask for a table more out of the way. We had a first time waiter who was very nice and smiley - however we waited too long for our wine and dinner. Now I can’t say it was his fault - they were very busy but Jonathan, the Mgr., completely did right by us. I would totally go back and reccomend this Clyde’s!
It is at least two years since I've had lunch at this Clyde's restaurant. I was very disappointed by the service which was slow. Food which was supposed to be hot was cool , we had to ask for bread and refills for our drinks three or four times before they eventually arrived. That was over a space of probably at least 15 minutes, it felt like more. The ambiance is good, typical Clyde's and the food was fair and would've been good or even excellent if it is been hot. Reston has the additional annoyance of parking through a very clumsy cell phone App. Clyde's provide discount coupons but when checking out I found that only one of them worked. Generally my experience at Clyde's has been very good and I will take this to be an anomaly.
We went for an early dinner to celebrate a son's birthday. Although I indicated that when I made the reservation through Open Table nothing was mentioned about it. Service was excellent - we had six adults and 3 children. It took a little long to get our food once ordered. After I inquired our waiter immediately checked on it and it was brought out almost immediately. Three of us ordered the Winter Salad and it was very good. I had the sweet potato souffle and it was excellent. Son had chicken sandwich and said it was ok. Husband and daughter had the trout and both thought it was just ok. The children's meals were all very good. I would go back with friends for lunch.
We seldom go to Clydes since Reston Town Center instituted pay parking. After a two year absence, Clydes was still Clydes. Not quite as packed as once it was. Still the Buffalo Wings were good. Other items were OK. Service attentive, though I wished the entrees came AFTER finishing the appetizer.
Clyde's is one of my favorite restaurants. The above review is not as good as usual because my meal was not up to par.
I had the eggs and lox at a Sunday Brunch. The eggs were cold and tasteless. The potatoes and toast were good. The server did his job but was slowed down by the kitchen.
I should have complained but I did not want to do so in front of my guests.
Although I like Clyde’s for weekday business lunches, I made the mistake of going on a Saturday night. We had to wait 20 minutes for our 7 pm reservation and then we were escorted to a table in the back room where the noise level was deafening because of several large parties. It was totally unfair to put a couple in an area dominated by large parties. I had a reservation and got the worst seat in the house. We could hardly hear each other or our waiter. The appetizer — a vegetarian flatbread — was very disappointing as everything kept rolling off. The entrees were okay. We couldn’t get out check because the waiter was at the register for about 15 minutes ringing up tabs from all the large parties. My husband finally got up and went to the register directly to pay so we could leave. We were both getting headaches from the noise. I will never go back on a Saturday night.
The salad options were very disappointing. Not a very good selection. The oyster appetizer was very disappointing. There were five oysters and each one was smaller than a dime. The price was over 12 dollars. I wish the server would have let us know that they were extremely small on that particular day and I would have ordered a different appetizer.
We came in for dinner at 5:30. We eat with my 86 year old father who can not see in poor lighting so try and get to restaurants early before they dim the lights. Unfortunately the restaurant dimmed the lights shortly after we sat down. It would be nice if one area in restaurants would be kept lit. The women's restroom was almost as dark as the restaurant. Not sure why the restroom needs to be dimly lit. Clydes has changed their menu recently and I am not a fan. They no longer have a nice salad selection. Lots of pasta choices and then seem to be focusing on steaks. Just not as much as of variety as in the past.
