Clyde's Willow Creek Farm
At the time I made the reservation I mentioned that we would be coming to celebrate my daughter’s 16th Birthday. I was disappointed to see that this restaurant did not do anything to help recognize her birthday as other restaurants do either through a complimentary dessert or a discounted meal. Also, my Mother ordered the salmon and she said is was extremely salty. With regards to the service provided to us, it felt as though our waiter really didn’t want to serve us.
All in all our experience was very mediocre.
wonderful dinner - consistent service and quality make this a great go to restaurant.
Great food and service!
For a double birthday celebration and a unique family reunion situation, I could not of imagined a more perfect setting. I not only do not have a single negative, but more importantly I can say that everything far exceeded my expectations! It was perfect. I actually can't remember a dining event as spectular as this. Thanks Andy and the hostess and the reservation person for making everything come together. Members of my party kept asking me "who do you know to get such service, etc?" Thanks Clyde's!
Food was good, but my daughter did not like the type of pasta used for the Mac & cheese she ordered. It used to be our favorite dish.
We always enjoy our visits to Clyde’s!! Very nice location, Food is predictably good and service is always attentive.
We've been fans of Clyde's establishments throughout the DC area for years but had never made it to their Willow Creek Farm location. We made a late reservation on a Saturday and made our way there - and we're sure glad we did. First off, the atmosphere is wonderful...true comfort & homely. Next, our waitress was absolutely fantastic - she was helpful, attentive, entertaining, and above all, genuine in making sure we had a nice evening. To top things off, the food & drinks were excellent.
We went with a goal of having a relaxed evening in a nice place with comfort food, and Clyde's checked every box. We will undoubtedly be back!
Always great. Love Cheryl.
We had special diet needs that were accommodated wonderfully. And as usual, the food and service was exceptional.
We were a party of eight celebrating family birthdays . The room that we were in gave the perfect amount of privacy and we never felt rushed. The atmosphere, with the beautiful murals and the lit fireplace added to our festivities. Everyone at Clyde's made us feel special and the food and specialty beverages were terrific!
The food was great, but food service was so slow. They gave us 50% off the check because it was so bad.
GREAT FOOD, GREAT PEOPLE WORKING THEIR. EVERYONE SO NICE / CLEAN
The atmosphere is lovely and the service is excellent and professional. The food good but not great and the portions are small for the price. I ordered the special lobster and it seemed meager (and a bit mushy in parts.) The coffee cake that they bring to the table looked delicious but I couldn't eat it because of an egg allergy; an alternate bread (e.g. piece of baguette) would have been appreciated.
Clyde's is always first class, this location is even more fun with the farmhouse restored and the fireplaces burning. Would love to try the outdoor space. Go and enjoy.
The ambiance was perfect. Really great energy and oh boy the food was just perfect. My wife loved everything she got in her mouth. The drinks were a great start and really set the tone.
Had a family dinner at Clyde's and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Food, service and ambiance was all very good. Have always enjoyed taking out of town guests here because of all the beautiful rooms and bars but now go there for excellent food as well.
2nd visit was just as good as the 1st. Service (Cheryl) was outstanding.
Service was exceptional. Our waitress was attentive, respectful and personable.
Lobster and Swordfish was cooked perfectly. Flatbread with figs and creme fresh was very good but slightly burnt.
My favorite restaurant!
Food is always reliably very good, but service falls short a lot of times. Perhaps the restaurant needs more wait staff? Tonight once again was big gaps waiting for service for the waitress to take our order, when we needed something and in between courses. I would have rated the restaurant a lot higher if the service were better since the food is always tasty.
I have come to expect the sophisticated yet unpretentious atmosphere, historic elegance, romantic ambiance, and outstanding service I always receive at Clyde’s Willow Creek Farm...and my latest visit lived up to my expectations yet again!
Very tasty lobster special.
Great experience from entering the parking lot to leaving!
Great service! Good food.
Very good overall. Our server Cheryl was awesome. The band in the large room in the back was so loud. It was very annoying. But everything else was great.
Lovely restaurant. Fire last time visiting and I was impressed with this rustic place. It felt like it was on its own secluded area away from away from all of the bustle.
Consistently outstanding meals. Great wait staff. Shrimp Scampi and Lobster were wonderful.
Everything was fantastic from Appetizer to dessert. Great restaurant. I highly recommend.
It's been awhile since we've been back here but try to keep the restaurant in our rotation. Was disappointed with the lobster bisque as it had lobster flavor but no actual detectable lobster in the dish. The service was slower and less attentive than usual which was unexpected given how early it was in the evening. Hopefully just a fluke and not an indication of the quality at this location.
Our waiter kept forgetting us, but the food was fabulous!!
Great place to eat !!
Took visitors there for the first time and they loved it and loved the food.
Friendly and helpful waiter.
As usual Clyde's Willow Creek Farm was excellent. Mr. Fox, the manager was gracious and very nice. I had the Lobster Shepherd's Pie and it was very good.
As always the atmosphere was charming and the building historically impressive. We arrived 30 minutes early to a nearly empty space but were denied entry because "all the 630 and 645 reservations had to be seated before we were and they hadn't arrived yet." Ah, why? They were not going to give away our table so why make us wait? It was idiotic but the hostess, who never bothered to look at us, was immovable. This is bad management. The food was good. The service wildly friendly, chatty to excess and slow and forgetful. We waited for everything, sometimes to no avail. We never got our water and waited so long for dessert we got up and found someone to take our payment and only caught it to go on the way to the door. Not our best experience there. It was an amateurish performance and unworthy of such an impressive venue.
Needed more wait staff, food was great.
We always love this place, it was Sunday night.
After making an early reservation. Clyde’s still seared is in the bar. We were unable to talk to each other. We could have sat in the bar with no reservation
Overall very good. Huge location with a lot of character. Husband is picky about his steak and said the cowboy ribeye was excellent. I had the crab cake which was on the small side but very good. Chile and autumn salad also both delicious.
