The quality of food didn't live up to my expectation. The salmon was tasteless. The steak was burn on the outside and rare on the inside .

Great pLace for a meal before a Caps game next door. Always good food, although I wish that cream of crab soup was still on the menu. Tables a little tight making conversation a bit stilted. Neighbors seemed to openly comment on my food. Yuck! Nice server. Food came out well before I had finished my appetizer. Made me feel way too rushed.

Great happy hour 3-6 pm and good spot to be if you are going to an event at Capital One arena. Staff were courteous and quick service. Good happy hour selection. Pays to make a reservation, as it can get crowded.

Efficiently run, attentive wait staff, wonderful service. The food was very good and the chef was happy to make adjustments to my dish to accommodate my food allergies, even on a busy pregame night! Major shout out to Elvis, the best server I have had in a long, long time- attentive but not intrusive with great recommendations and the patience of a saint!

Stopped by for Happy Hour prior to the Wizards vs Bucks basketball game. This was my second time dining at Clyde’s and will not be my last. Truly enjoyed the festive environment, service and food.

Two couples, long- time friends, met for dinner after at Shakespeare Theatre. This was our first time at this Clyde’s location. We were pleasantly surprised by the ambiance and
fact that we heard no street noise. Truly a beautiful setting! A great meal! Impeccable service and great food. Very pleased by the menu variety,

Got brunch at 10am before the noon Capitals game. The restaurant was full and they seemed ready for all the fans. My food was bad; a sandwich on a stale roll and fruit obviously cut up the day before and tasting of whatever preservative they used. My daughter’s quiche was rewarmed (from yesterday?) but not warm enough. My husband’s and son’s food was delicious.

Long awaited date night with my wife of 15 years. I believe our server was Paris. She was extremely nice and informative when it came to helping us choose an item. We ordered wings, beef stew, and the district fried chicken. I have absolutely no complaints about the food other that I wish I had more. Hahaha! I can’t wait to go back and try a few other items on the menu.

Everything was great. Special shout out to the hostesses up front. I was running late and concerned about losing my execrations but after I called the second time to update them on my whereabouts I was told not to worry my reservation would not be cancelled. I was extremely grateful considering I came up from Fredericsburg VA with my Mom who is disabled and I did not want to find another location to have dinner. Thank you Ladies! Absolutely outstanding and professional service! I plan to visit again and will recommend the restaurant to others. I salute you!

The service was just okay. We saw a lot of staff just standing around the hostess area talking. The restaurant was not super busy but that should not have affected the service we received, if anything it should have been more attentive. Several times I had to ask for refills. Not only that, the food we ordered was wrong, twice! When we finally received our meals, they were quite good. The decor was lovely as Clyde's is know for but the bathroom could use some attention. Overall a good experience but unless the attention to detail and the service gets better not sure I would be in a hurry to return. I would suggest this to a friend however since the food was quite tasty!

Crowded holiday but front desk was efficient. Sat our large party quickly. Waiter (an experienced older man) made sure the four children ordered first and served quickly. A very pleasant experience.

My boyfriend and I came here for a belated a Valentine’s Day lunch. We ordered the Light House during happy hour (everyday 3pm-6pm). It was delicious AND half-off!! ($164 to $82!!). I would highly recommend!

My five year old daughter absolutely loved the cheeseburger. She finished her entire dinner without complaints! That in itself is amazing! The food is delicious. I highly recommend the burgers, calamari, and tater tots!

Great atmosphere and we loved our server but the food and drinks were horrible. Not at all worth the price. There was a hair in my food so I sent it back and got a new burger which was supposed to be medium rare. Mine was completely cooked through to the point where it was hard to chew! The $12 nachos were the same quality as what you get at a basketball game. Would not recommend.

After taking our food order, we never saw our waiter again. Ordered the salmon burger which was tasteless and overwhelmed by a large wheat bun and lots of lettuce and tomato. I was very unimpressed with the entire experience.

Overall Clyde's of Gallery Place was very good, as it always is. I hosted a business dinner there on this visit. It was disappointing to see that the upholstery in on many of banquettes was badly worn and/or torn. Sad to see, and I hope it is repaired soon.

This was a very disappointing dinner. The service was the worst I have ever experienced. We didn't receive our first round of drinks until after our meal was complete, more than an hour after we ordered them.

Clyde’s has good food. Service was generally good. The greenhouse seating area (overlooking the walk between Clyde’s and the arena) would be nice except for the excessive noise from the street performers/rappers located just below. Ask to sit somewhere further inside

We all thought the food was very good especially the lamb shank, hanger steak, and fresh fish. $Service was very good. Probably should be $$$ instead of $$ since everything is ala carte. I will go back and enjoyed the food, ambience, and evening.
