Really great experience! Clydes was exceptionally accommodating of my daughters allergies, they made a dairy and nut free version of her entree, and it didn’t take extra time. They also had two vegetarian main dishes on the menu. Something for everyone, and delicious! Only one dairy free dessert option (sorbet), but that’s pretty typical. Their ambiance never disappoints- love the fireplaces. Good service. Overall wonderful experience.

Couldn't have enjoyed our meal more. Great service, wonderful ambiance and awesome food. We had never been to Clyde's before and after this, there's no doubt we'll be back.

Unfortunately, very disappointing both in terms of service and quality of food. We made an anniversary reservation and were seated in a room right between two larger groups, both containing very small children (nothing against children, but just not what you would expect when specifying an anniversary dinner). Our server was very slow and while pleasant it was in an extremely juvenile manner, remarking to us once "well I can't take your plate away because you did eat of your food."

Definitely a good spot for brunch. The menu covers a wide variety of tastes so it’s easy to find something that suits everyone. The drinks are tasty as well (maybe a little overpriced but beggars can’t be choosers). Our waiter forgot a couple minor requests (we asked for some limes for our water and one of the side orders came out incorrectly) but regardless, our meals were outstanding, and I highly recommend the steamed pork belly buns. Would gladly return again!

One of the better dinners we've had here and we come often. The NY Strip was absolutely amazing. Cooked perfect. We also tried the Lamb Stew which was also great. Service very good as usual. Tough to beat this place.

Clyde's Willow Creek delivered a great experience once again.
Were celebrating a quiet birthday celebration with my wife and could not have been happier.
Service was very good and nicely attentive.
We shared the Cuban pork egg roll appetizer and both thought it was sensational. Great blend of flavors but what set it apart from other Cuban pork renditions was the texture. The deep fried egg roll wrapping was a perfect foil for the flavorful treat. Highly recommend.
Also impressed with the shrimp scampi. The shrimp were plump and flavorful and the scampi was garlic-y delicious. The crostini was too crisp to be edible.
The crab cakes were typically delicious. Regardless of season, Clyde's makes an admirable crab cake. The shaved brussels sprout side was very tasty too.
As a surprise, the waitress/restaurant comped my wife's dessert. ALWAYS a nice touch. Thank you Clyde's for taking notice!
Wine list is extensive, well-presented, and extremely well priced. Our 1st choice wine pick was sold out (fair enough though since is was a rose and 4 days after Valentine's Day). Nonetheless, many other suitable selections were in supply.
Overall, thanks to Clyde's I could not have enjoyed a nicer night with my wife.

Very happy with our spur of the moment date night out. Dinner was amazing, as was my cocktail and dessert. Service was wonderful. Especially when we rushed our waiter at the end so we could get to a movie. Couldn’t have asked for a better meal and experience.

The service was fine, not great. The waitress chatted with a couple for a long time while the lady was nursing a baby under her garment. Even if we were not waiting, it seemed invasive. We waited to place drink orders, waited too long to order the main course, waited for return service, waited and waited. For a Saturday early evening and not slammed, the staff should be more experienced than this.

The desserts available were not in sync with the online menu and they are still not, with the excuse that pumpkin is not in season, yet Pumpkin Ravioli was available. Pumpkin is available all year round in a can now and the waitress was unpleasant about the situation, a bit rough around the edges, and unapologetic.

There are dividing walls that are only shoulder height, so there is little privacy in the center of the room. In addition, when a large person decides to place their elbow on the wall and not "share" the divider, the room is even less private, despite its excellent history and decor. Perhaps an additional partition above the low wood dividers would make the necessary improvement.

The manager was excellent and pleasant. He offered to comp beverages over the issues, which was more than generous. Overall, the food is well prepared, the rooms are historical making the restaurant more special than a typical chain, the hostess staff was friendly, but the table service still needs more polish.

This was not our first visit to Clyde's so we knew what to expect. However, we found it a bit lacking. First, our server was not attentive compared to the other servers we observed, and she did not bring the fresh bread she promised during our cocktails and salads. We finally declined it midway through our main course. We wre also disapointed with some aspects of the food: We fouund the 8 oz steak at $37 to be overpriced. And, the beef stroganoff, although tasty, only had 2 bites of beef in an otherwise hearty serving.
