Simply delicious dinner. Arrived at 845 for dinner reservations and seated immediately. The restaurant was relatively quiet by then, but the bar was crowded. We had the hummus appetizer (excellent) the salmon entree ( really good) and the chicken orchietti (delicious). Dinner with a cocktail and one beer was $72. Excellent service. Always like Clyde’s as a good staple.

Excellent dinner! We had steak and salmon entrees. My partner said that was the best he’s ever had and he’s hard to please.

Everything was just okay. Food was the best part of the experience. Service was lacking. Host not welcoming. It's just not a well-run establishment.

Clydes at Willow Creek Farm is a very unique experience. We have been there a handful of times and each room that you dine in is a different experience. We were in a front room with four large leather dining chairs, Which although sat a bit lower than we would have liked were very comfortable and a different experience. The food is always exquisite and amazing, beef stroganoff for $16.99, made with beef tenderloin, literally the best we’ve ever had! Calamari appetizer was perfectly done, fresh and slightly spicy really great! From the hostesses when you come in to the waiters to the bartenders, everyone is top notch! They take reservations which is unique in Northern Virginia ! Went and had an after dinner drink with friends in the bar and there was a great vibrant scene and a wonderful live band. Would have given 4 1/2 stars, only for it being a little bit too dark in our dining area and our chairs being slightly lower than was comfortable. Other than that it is a five-star restaurant ! Cannot wait to go back!

Beautiful place, very majestic. Unfortunately the food is inconsistent. I’ve eaten here on and off since they opened. Sometimes really good, other times mediocre - never bad. I recently attended a Christmas lunch at Clyde’s. The food was great. They gave us a gift card so we gave it another try. B-

I really hope the food improves.

We love clydes. Impeccable service, wonderful food. However the restaurant is starting to show its age. Our booth seats were torn, the chair arms are no longer stained (meaning it looks worn), the pictures are banged up and other wear and tear damage. The glass cases look as though they hadn't been cleaned in years. Is this a big deal? Not really but dinner for 3 with tip was $120. Reinvest into the overall condition of the restaurant and it will once again be as pleasing to the eye as the palate

We love Willow Creek and have been coming here for more than 12 years - for girls’ night out, girls’ day out, storm is coming, let’s catch up, you get the idea. Will continue to go but less frequently I’m afraid. The prices just keep inching up and it’s getting a little untenable.

From the decor, to the cuisine, to the service. ... all were excellent! My only negative is that I found my crab cakes a bit too salty but that is a personal taste. The clam chowder was definitely the best I have ever had by far. We are looking forward to dining at Clyde’s again!

It was New Years Eve so it tended to be fun and loud anyway. We were next to a table of adults (yes, adults) who were extra loud (boisterous) and proceeded to blow noisemakers way before midnight (8:00 PM). Very annoying. Once they left it was delightful. I wish the restaurant had been more proactive in reducing that annoyance. Our glances and stares did nothing!

Ours was a group of 10, including 3 children, for brunch. Everything was absolutely great. Server was very accommodating, especially with the children. Service was relaxed yet efficient. Loved the warm atmosphere with fires burning in the fireplaces. Food was delicious. Several of us had the steak and eggs and all felt it was a perfect choice. Front of the house were welcoming and seated us without a wait. A great time was had by all.

Saturday night at Clyde's, both front room and entire barn booked for private events, so less than 1/2 of their tables were open for dinner. It was packed. Food was very good, filet cooked perfectly, beef short ribs were very tender and flavorful. Beef stroganoff was good, needed more cream, but otherwise it was good. Service was decent, they were really busy. Been to Clyde's many times, we keep going back because it's worth going back.

Very good service! We are also very accommodating as we had a friend who is running quite late. They kept her food warm and even replace the fries that would’ve gotten cold and soggy at that point. The ambience at Clydes at Willow Creek is just so nice. It is one of the biggest draws for the restaurant.

The only issue I had was being seated at two rotund tables squished together. It made it rather awkward for those that were seated in the area where the tables were pushed together. We were more “back to back” than side by side. Otherwise everything was perfect

While the food was enjoyable, our server was so bad that it negatively impacted our experience. We had our appetizers delivered to the table before our drinks, bread was provided late in the service, and the bill took unusually long to arrive. The server didn’t engage with us; when we visited over the summer, the service was amazing as was the food. I’m hoping it was just an “off” night. PS- I don’t recommend the orange creme brûlée-it tasted like Tang.

Love eating at Clyde's anytime but especially at the holidays. Love the ambiance. They seated us at a table by the bar and the piano player. I asked to move us as it was quite noisy and they immediately took us to another room which was perfect. Good service, food and atmosphere.

We go to Clyde's often since it's less than 5 minutes from our house but the reason we really go is because it's always good. Our server Cheryl knows us and the food and service was great. Can't go wrong going to Willow Creek!!

Not sure what information is sent by Open Table to the restaurant. We noted a special occasion. The first table we were given was in the bar area...so noisy you couldn't hear yourself think...hardly what we were looking for. The hostess was able to find a somewhat more suitable location.

The salads ordered were great but the ball was dropped when it came to the entrees. The shrimp scampi in particular was a disappointment. Shrimp were over cooked and tasteless and not worth finishing. Manager did remove this item from our bill.

Disappointed, but will give the another try in the future.

We reserved a table for lunch for a small office. We ended up in a room by ourselves with a fireplace! Since it was a small group we certainly enjoyed the private table. Food, service, ambiance were all excellent. We were not rushed an were able to relax and enjoy ourselves.

Clyde's Willow Creek Farm has never failed to provide the best in reasonably priced cuisine and unique cuisine; outstanding service; and unmatched atmosphere. It's simply the best. I highly recommend it because I know that whoever goes there on my word will not be disappointed.
