Food and ambience was excellent. I guess it was our server first night shift and was in the weeds a bit but we tried not to let that interfere with our experience. The manager on duty, forgot his name (Saturday night), stepped in and made sure we were taking care of until the waitress can catch up. I would definitely come back.

On May 18, 2019, we celebrated our son's GMU college graduation with dinner at Clyde's in Ashburn and it was fantastic! Reservations were made last winter and the table chosen was the one we received. Mo, our great server was especially hard-working, kind and on-point regarding ALL aspects of our celebration. Mo even took the time to take a group photo for us and then personally thanked our son for his achievement! Our son ordered the Filet mignon and said it was the best steak he has ever enjoyed!!
The service and food were ALL delicious and we are so grateful for Clyde's and their entire staff for making our special day so perfect! Thank you so much; we will be back!

We dined at Clyde's for our anniversary on a week night and sat outside. The patio is really lovely. Our server was in training and was very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. We had the crab cake and the trout. The only distraction from a wonderful evening was the group of children permitted to run around the patio and among the other diners. Perhaps the patio dining is considered to be more of a casual dining experience? We will keep this in mind for next time.

Despite the crowd for Mother's Day, the service was excellent, as was the food. I love the horse themed room, although the cartoon figures replacing horse paintings were not an improvement. Nonetheless, Overall, Beautiful surroundings. I just looked at another wall. The Salmon was wonderful and accompanying vegetables even better! Lovely experience.

We always enjoy the decor. The open beam ceiling and the examples of old silver items are always interesting to view. The menu changes based upon the season.

The wait staff was attentive and helpful. We were seated exactly at our reservation time. Overall, a very good experience.

Outstanding hostess, bar and wait staff service. Brandon at the bar was particularly great and checked in on us regularly as did as our waiter (forgot to note his name). My friend’s Peruvian chicken was delicious. I chose less satisfying entree meals with a carbonara (small portion) and crab cakes (more on the salty side). I will do better to choose differently next time. Definitely worth a revisit, and the place is really cozy, welcoming and comfortable.

My husband and I were out for a special date night. I called ahead for a reservation. We got seated by the piano, which set a relaxing mood. The server was very personable and the food was AMAZING, particularly the Hanger Steak with Bordelaise sauce! I live about 3 hours away from this restaurant but am thinking about going here again for my birthday!

Some restaurants have great atmosphere, and this is one is special and of the best. Great food and service too. The building is made of antique heavy timber carefully recovered from 4 structures (inn, farmhouses, barn) built between 1780 and 1824. There is joy in that wood, which brings warmth to dinner (and they have 7 fireplaces). I was curious as to why open table had so many reservations booked and now I know. My first visit here, and I’ll be back when I’m in the DC area again. Pick up the history card about the restaurant and enjoy as I did. We enjoyed calamari appetizer, Shrimp Scampi, fried Trout and huge desserts.

Here to celebrate a friend’s Birthday. Food was good as usual but out of all the rooms in this restaurant, this room was the least favorite and the noisiest. I will specify a room the next time.

The menu is just so limited. One sheet with very few choices. Same choices month after month. Noticed prices have gone up on quite a few items. Tried the cauliflower steak entree - delicious. My friend ordered the pasta dish - very small portion.

Service was good as always.

Despite my request and confirmation ( quiet corner table) seated in the noisiest room Wait staff was overloaded and ignored or forgot numerous requests. While the food was good, service marginal and ambiance NOT what was expected the overall value not acceptable. We will NOT be back. We have been to three different Clyde’s with two of three been a disappointment. It’s time to look for a different restaurant group

The room we were in was very nice until 14-18 high school young adults were seated eight feet from our table. What started out as a enjoyable quite dinner turned into a nerve racking evening. We could not leave fast enough. Your resturant patrons should not be subjected to large groups that do not know how to act in public places. When I mention the noise level I was informed everyone has a right to eat. Sorry wrong answer.

Another wonderful dinner at Clydes. Recently had to go Gluten Free which has been a challenge but they had several options for me there. Still miss the wonderful fresh bread though and wish they had a similar version for us GF patrons. We love dining there and enjoy the beautiful dining rooms and handcrafted cocktails. Looking forward to warmer evenings on the patio!
