 (Washington DC)·Dined 3 days ago

Whenever I make an OT reservation (which is often) I add a request for a high-chair or booster seat for our toddler and add a note about her food allergies. Clydes TO is the only restaurant who has paid attention to those notes. When we were seated, the host had the booster seat ready along with kids menu. When the server greeted us she said "I understand your daughter has food allergies" and she checked her menu selection with the chef right away. I was very impressed.
On top of that, the steaks were delicious! Thank you Clydes!

Our book club always celebrates the holidays with a dinner at Clydes Tower Oak. It never disappoints! The food is fabulous and we had the most incredible server - she was awesome. I just love the comfortable yet magical feel of the place.

Wonderful dinner for a special birthday. It was noisy until about 7:30pm on this Sunday night, but then calmed down. The waitress "warmed up" but was very busy at first. We loved the food and were very surprised with the complimentary dessert. Was charged twice for wine, but got that taken care of. Was brought a glass of "Cotes de Rhone" with extra pieces of cork or debris on top, but that was taken care of immediately too. Will go back and will recommend. We have other Clyde's nearer to us in NOVA, but we love the ambience of this Tower Oaks one. Thank you!

 (Washington DC)·Dined on December 3, 2017

The food was great, the restaurant is beautiful, the desserts very yummy, the wait service was great...only complaint was that the restaurant piped in top 40s music very loudly which was such a distraction for such a beautiful restaurant. I wondered if it was a mistake but for the two hours we dined there, the music played on. Music would have been fine had it matched the ambiance of the restaurant. I am in my 50's so thought maybe it was just me, but my 24 year old daughter - who works in a bar in NYC - leaned across the table to say, "What's up with the bizarre top-40 tunes? Doesn't go with this restaurant."

Great food but atmosphere incredible! A 200 year old New England barn reimagined as an early 20th century Adirondack Lodge sets the stage for a truly beautiful & unique setting.
Fantastic to treat out of town guests & for celebrations!

I had dinner at the restaurant on the advice of a local. I was flying in from San Diego and didn't know any restaurants but was advised to ask for a certain section of the restaurant. Apparently it was noted and the hostess put us in a perfect seat where the ambiance company and food we're all Superior this is definitely a place to go when you wanted to be treated like a special person

Not up to your usual high standards. Soup was very good but Caesar salad was not quite what it should’ve been. The appetizer dip came out at the same time is the soup, even though we had asked for them to come out separately.

Always a good spot. Service was good- we were there to relax and catch up and our server let us do just that. Autumn salad with salmon was yummy- great ingredients. One negative- coffee is a bit pricey- and we were not offered a refill.

Never disappointed at Tower Oaks. The duck confit salad was so amazing both in presentation and taste that I wish I had ordered 1 or 2 more rather than my entree. And the baked haddock entree was excellent. Lobster pot pie, steak, and pasta dishes equally good. Just love the ambiance having visited the Adirondacks often, sure brings back memories. We always dine here when visiting family in the area. Almost a good thing there isn't one in Atlanta, we would be there all the time!
