The food looked great but the flavor was just ok. No one was blown away by their meal. The server was attentive but the meal came out without syrup for the French toast and my daughter's bacon. The sausage was absolutely awful.

Our server, Jermaine, was a delight! He was pleasant, professional, and attentive! I will request him in the future. My only complaint is the beef nachos. I’ve had them for takeout before, loved them, and was looking forward to having them again. However, the meat was room temperature to cold! It’s possible that the cold sour cream, tomatoes, etc. on top, cooled the meat down. I suggest serving the cold items in separate side dishes to be added by the guest. Keep the meat steaming. The meat also tasted kind of grainy from being too lean. You need a little fat for texture and flavor!

Pass this on! Give them a chance to get it right! And I’ll go back!

Excellent food and a great place to relax. There are many Clyde's in the Washington DC area, I recommending when you need a day off from cooking.

Dinner and drinks were fantastic. I ordered the asparagus ravioli but received an asparagus salad by mistake. The waitress was apologetic and quickly put in the correct order and did not charge for the salad. Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating.

I was celebrating my graduation from the Jack Welch Management Institute with family and friends. The food was good. However, there was a mix up with the order for one of our guests, twice. This affected the evening. However the food and ambience were great. The charges were waived for the order that was messed up.

Clyde’s has been one of my favorite restaurants for years. We patronize many places in their chain. This is the first time I have had any complaint about the food or the service. Food was disappointingly ordinary, and our server was distracted and did not act like he had been trained to Clyde’s standards. This location could stand serious improvement

This was our second visit. Our table was ready upon our arrival. The food was delicious. This time we ate downstairs instead of upstairs. The service was much better and faster upstairs on our first visit and it is very loud downstairs. The waiter was very polite to our 10 year old son. We will definitely return!

You really can't go wrong when going to a Clyde's -- and this one is in a great location, a block from the Gallery Place Metro station. It's a very busy part of DC but an oasis of calm once you go inside and since the dining area is on the second level and the bar on the first, you also can escape the noise of the bar when that gets crowded.

Good place for a business meal as we could discuss and hear each other without many distractions. Surprisingly, the menu didn’t include a large selection of fish (only salmon and catfish to be precise). The food and service were overall good. I recommend the (raw) oysters and the crab cake. Avoid the soft shell crab.

Food was reasonable and delicious. Our waitress was training another person and certainly did not exhibit the best in customer service. Hopefully the trainee is placed with someone else in the future. Overall, enjoyed our dinner.

I have been a patron of Clydes since the 70s in Georgetown. Their food quality, their care for your space, is important. My colleague and I both had steaks...wonderful and perfectly prepared, including not using butter for me. The vegies were tasty and not overcooked and we had a relaxed engagement that allowed us to share ideas undisturbed.

Truly a remarkable restaurant to not miss while you are in Washington, DC. The food is outstanding. The waitstaff is spot-on professional, attentive and remembers you and what you ordered when you come back!!! The restaurant itself is just beautiful. Dark wood, elegant and filled with paintings, chandeliers and statues to keep you busy while waiting for your food.

Food was very good quality. Nice that the steak offered the option of a sauce and side. Would have liked a 2 side option - but for a center city hotel - the price was in line. Our server was horrible. He was arrogant - and did not provide good service. After tracking him down for a cup of coffee - and asking for cream - the coffee went cold waiting on him. He then sat down at a table of girls and ignored us - and we had to "break up his party" with other guests to get our bill. For a high end restaurant I expect better service.

Leon (our server) was a pro; attentive, efficient and helpful. We were a fairly big group (6) and we were using s gift card and credit card and he helped us figure it all out. Other staff happily stopped what they were doing to take a picture. Great food, great memories.
