Went on a Sunday afternoon for an anniversary meal. The atmosphere reflected Virginia's colonial past in a farmhouse setting with beautiful outdoor spaces. Food and service were excellent.

I have always loved Clyde’s Willow Creek Farm but tonight’s experience was very disappointing. I brought my wife here for a special occasion but I wished we had gone somewhere else.

I ordered the summer flounder with match stick fries and fried capers and it was honestly one of the worst meals I’ve ever eaten out. The fries were so overcooked, they were not even edible. I’ve never eaten shredded mulch but that was the closest thing I can think of to compare them to. They were like a bed of sticks on my plate. The flounder was also overdone but I was hungry and ate it anyway. Dry, chewy fish is not enjoyable. The waitress did bring me a side of garlic mashed potatoes to replace the fries and they were the best part of the meal.

My wife ordered the pork chop and again it was severely overcooked. I wish I had taken a photo of it to show how charred it was. Three quarters of it were literally black char. She prefers her meats well done but this was completely unacceptable in my opinion. I have never seen meat presented like that anywhere. However, she did not complain and did not want to make a fuss in front of the other guests. I’m very surprised the chef allowed our main courses to leave the kitchen in the state they were in.

The white sangria and flourless chocolate cake were very good. I did order the cocktail shrimp for an appetizer and they were tasty but $12.99 for three shrimp was a bit overpriced I think. In total, our bill was $101 for a very disappointing and unsatisfying dinner. Please forward this message to management.

Overcrowded. No one attend to our table for the first 20 minutes. Looked like the server was overworked. It was our wedding anniversary and we did not have a good experience. Might have to think twice before going back.

Mo was an excellent waiter. Very accommodating. We had a mix of brunch items and sandwiches and all were good. Hollandaise on the Eggs Benedict was excellent. Eggs were a bit overcooked but tasty. French Toast was good but had a taste of "old oil". Lots of syrup fixed that. Sandwiches were excellent and portions very large.

Poor service, poor service, poor service. Not sure I can say it enough. We noted in the Open Table reservation we were there for an anniversary yet when we arrived we were asked if we were there for a special occasion. Yes, anniversary. Off the bat, not feeling like a special occasion.

Seated in the bar area. Have been there before so no surprises about the noise level in that part of the restaurant. However, it was an anniversary. A little thought about a less crowded area would have been appreciated.

Our server seemed particularly distracted and more interested in turning tables than giving us good service. She stopped by our table several times with a dirty dish tray or dirty barware from the other tables she was serving. I might expect that at a lesser restaurant but not from a place with the reputation of Clydes.

Steaks were over salted and the chimichurri sauce had enough oil in it to open a Jiffy Lube. Now I think I know why so many people around us were eating hamburgers.

I have had several good experiences at Willow Creek but this was not one of them. I had high hopes for a memorable anniversary dinner and was sorely disappointed. The magic is gone. I won’t be back.

The service was reasonably good, although one of the waiters did spill a drink on me. My wife had the special, flounder in a hollandaise sauce. The fish was terribly overcooked and stringy, definitely not the least bit appetizing, and no amount of sauce could fix that. There were no complaints on the rest of our meals but nothing really stood out. Clydes is an expensive upscale establishment, but not the only one by a mile in this area. You really need to up your game in the kitchen or people will go somewhere else.

We have been visiting Clydes at Willow Creek for the past 12 years and have never had a bad experieince. I have known Paul Fox, General Manager, for over 40 years from his daysas a bartender at Clydes of Tysons Corner. His management has ensured a great dining experience.

Two of my friends and I had lunch here last Sunday and everything was perfect. The tables are well socially-distanced and our waitress Melanie J. and her trainee did a fantastic job of keeping us supplied with everything we needed. I had the wedge steak salad and it was delicious. I ordered the meat rare and that exactly how it came. The brownie sundae was super wonderful. They even divided it in three so we all got to enjoy it. Love this place and all the staff are wonderful!

We enjoyed a perfect evening eating on the patio of Clyde’s Willow Creek Farm. The ceases salad was fair. The Peruvian chicken and crab cake dishes were wonderfully prepared. Our waiter did a fine job, wonder experience overall.

First time I've been back to Clyde's since the Pandemic. They have done a great job in converting the large dining room in the back from primarily closely spaced booths to all tables set at a good distance apart. All staff from front to back wore masks. The food was as good as ever.

Im not sure why but this place just does not seem to be as good as it has been in the past. Been here a few times recently and have left disappointed. Maybe it has to do with Covid because I have felt many restaurants have been off thier game.

Group of 3, really poor service in general. When the waitress came to take the drinks order she only took one person, after a while she was back and took the other two drinks (sweet iced tea) the tea came ad was not sweet at all. We need t so for bread, she seems to be in a rush.
When we order dinner, and the food came, basically the quality was not the expected for the price. Cheeseburger, we ordered well done and was not, crab cake was cold and cole slaw super tiny. The waitress never came back t check if food came out right.
After another period of time she came back and asked to take the plates, basically with food that we are not eating.
We ask for the dessert menu, she never offered.
Overall a poor experience, and I'm very surprise because go often and never feel this way.
I'm not sure if we are going to give Clyde's another chance., sorry

I came to have lunch/brunch on a Saturday with my 86 year old mother in a wheelchair.
There were 4 persons at the hostess stand, no other customers in the lobby and we were taken to a booth to be seated.
Front two doors were difficult to navigate, I did not see door opener for wheelchair and stone floor difficult for chair to roll.
Have you tried holding a door open pushing a wheelchair through it? I struggled but got it done.
Taken to second place to be seated and the hostess who was in front of us, stood at table and did not remove chair so I could push up my mother to the table. I did it. She looked at me as I hesitated for her to act, but she looked away and stood there like my mom was going to stand up and sit into the chair at the table. I’m chill and yes I could of asked her to move it, but I think she should also have some idea what needed to happen.
I love Clydes and everything else is excellent. Staff just needs to be trained a bit for seating people.
I know it’s tough with staff but a hostess has one main job, seat people.

Ambiance is lovely and crab cake was delicious. Service was terrible, not up to what I'm used to at Clydes. Bread was not provided without asking and then it didn't arrive for quite a while. Service was extremely slow, and waitress did not check to see if we needed anything once the meal came. I ordered cappucino after the meal, and it was cold after a prolonged wait.

I have visited Clyde’s many times over the years. I have to say we were a bit disappointed this time. The service was great but the food was mediocre at best. I ordered one crab cake and for the price I expected more than a dollop of crab. Then I wanted only veggies with the crab cake and not the carbs that came with it. There was an extra charge for that. Really?

The question below asks about recommendations for fiend. Maybe but not for crab cake.

Beautiful restaurant and property and the staff were attentive. The food was very good, but fell a little short of “excellent,” as the steak was just a bit tough. But this was minor, and given the cost of the meal, which was comparatively modest, makes up for the quality of the food. If you’re looking for a venue for a special occasion, Clyde’s is a sound choice.
