We were traveling in the area and found Clyde’s by chance. Our waitress, Sophia, was pleasant and very sweet. The service was relaxed and perfectly executed. The mussels in beer as a starter was delicious. I ordered the crab cake which was served with the sweetest corn I’ve ever tasted. Special kudos because my husband left his credit card there and when I called at 8am the next morning, the manager answered, checked the safe and let us pick it up before they opened. I’d recommend it

I had to remind them it was my friend’s birthday. And only one waiter sang Happy Birthday. The table across from us had multiple singing waiters???

A bit rocky... 3 appetizers ordered for the table were slow to appear. After a longer than expected wait we were informed that they were delivered to the wrong table. Why the other table accepted is unclear but it pushed out our wait time. Manager did right the situation by supplying what was ordered at no charge but not until we asked where our order was!

Food itself is marginal. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone to a Clyde’s so can’t say if this is normal.

There are several other options @ the town center.

Medium rare steak came out well done. Scallops were small and also overdone. Reuben had so much meat that none of the rest of the flavors could be tasted. Dark.

new waiter was very slow. We had a time crunch and I requested that he process our bill first before clearing our table. But he cleared our table anyway and wasted time. Then he went inside and never came back, was helping another table. After 15 minutes we finally got our check

Main course Salads are really pathetic, a bunch of field greens with a paltry amount of shredded vegetables, and stingy with the chicken if you request that it be added. I keep expecting better from Clyde's, but continue to be disappointed.

We made our reservation on the same afternoon and got a great table inside for 4 at 7:15 PM. We arrived a few minutes early but were accommodated immediately and seated. Our wait person was Chris and he was very good and provided more than adequate service. We ordered an appetizer of the deviled eggs as only two wanted anything extra and they were very good. The were the right match to light our hunger fire. We had beers and a coke (the driver), water all around and the bar items came quickly as did the appetizer. We cover surf and turf in our main course orders; a NY Strip with onion rings, a bacon cheeseburger with fries, and two trout orders with veggies. Everyone enjoyed their choices, a second round of beers, and what appeared to be a bottomless coke tap. Between the main course, a loaf of hot bread with butter, and the eggs everyone was so full we didn't have room for dessert. The whole experience is what we are accustomed to at Clyde's in Reston and any other location for that matter. A pleasant evening with family and friend, in an inviting environment, with friendly and efficient wait staff, and good food. What else could you ask for. Thanks!! L. Payne

We waited in line at patio area to inform of our reservation only to be told we had to go to a different line inside. We did that and were seated shortly after. We ordered drinks and our food and after one hour and fifteen minutes with no sign of food or indication when it would arrive we told the manager we would be leaving. We were disappointed because we looked forward to eating here and heard good things. The waitress was very good, she made every effort but unfortunately the kitchen was not keeping up on this evening. Our first disappointment in six years of using Open Table.

Good location, service is very slow and food is very overpriced. The food is just okay, but the place is priced the like a 4 star steakhouse. The food is more like a generic casual family restaurant than fine dining.

Service was very poor. It took us over an hour and a half for a business lunch because our waiter was not around much, restaurant was not even that crowded. Will likely be taking my business elsewhere just because of the poor service.

Clyde’s of Reston used to be one of my favorites in the Town Center so I’m sorry to say the food was TERRIBLE. My son got a hamburger that was blackened to a crisp and hard as a brick. When we sent it back for a new one, they just warmed the old one up and sent it back to us! My Reuben sandwich had old pastrami that had gone hard and discolored around the edges. Used to be our go-to spot...but won’t be back for a while. The manager would do well to figure out what’s up in the kitchen.

Fathers Day. Glad it was just hubby and I . Service was bad. Table across from us may have prefer $15 worth of food and received so much attention. We had to wave down servers (ours was nowhere in sight) whenever we wanted something and not once did Anatole ask how our food was or if we wanted refills. Not a good experience .

I was very disappointed with this trip to Clyde’s. My go-to brunch of eggs Chesapeake, bacon, and a Bloody Mary was ordered. What came out can only be described as mass-produced or off of an assembly line. Gone was the rich distinction of flavors, textures, and tastes. It was replaced with a watery drink and a plate of food that was just ok. This was not the Clyde’s I know and love.

They seemed understaffed. The restaurant wasn’t that crowded, but we had a long wait for everything: drinks, then dinner, then we had to energetically flag people down for an iced tea refill; then more waiting to get and pay the bill.
The meatloaf I ordered tasted fine, but was not hot. I would have sent it back but after waiting so long I was hungry!

The food at Clyde's is reliable American fare. Everything is locally sourced, thoughtfully prepared and well presented. Even though our first orders of steak frites had been sitting under a heat lamp, and cooked well beyond the medium rare that we had ordered, the manager made things right. All orders were replaced and comped by the manager. This cost them a star, but I would highly recommend the steak frites to anyone. We thoroughly enjoyed the service and will back to Clyde's very soon. Thank you to Clyde's management for putting their customer satisfaction first.

Say on the patio on a beautiful summer night. It was the best part of the evening. Service was erratic. Long gaps between order and action. Mussels were delicious but asked for more bread that didn’t arrived until well after we we finished with the mussels. My ribeye steak was a beautiful piece of meat but over cooked. I asked for medium rare and got medium. Kind of ruins it for me. Maybe just an off night for the restaurant?

We have come to this location since it opened. This by far the worst experience we had. We chose the outdoor seating for my mom's 81st birthday. I arrived a little behind the rest of the family. 15 minutes later a server appeared to get me a drink. We ordered right away and it took another 45 minutes to get our lunch. My husband's fish tacos were the worst I had ever tasted, super dry and the fish was not fresh (this was a Thursday). We watched parties that arrived with us be served and leave, other parties that arrived well after our stay be served before us. The few times we tried to get our server's attention we were just ignored so we stopped and asked others for assistance. The highlight was the woman who understood the parking saga at RTC, she was able to come over with validation codes and make sure we were able to validate both our vehicles. We weren't able to leave from our 12 start lunch until 2:10, which made my mom miss her birthday mani and pedi. What a colossal disappointment. Don't see a return trip here anytime soon.
