Clyde's of Reston
Nearly perfect in every category. First visited in 1991; we appreciate decor has been virtually unchanged.
Why alter a winner? Wait service always excellent; we never feel hurried. Lighting subdued, but adequate.
This was our 60th anniversary, and we certainly did not choose to draw attention.
Finally, your head Chef deserves to take a bow.
Our breakfast was hot and delicious. Jason, our waiter, was very courteous and helpful. Third time visiting from out of town and would definitely recommend.
My food came out room temperature. My martini was meh. Staff was nice
Busy evening but since we were seated after the rush, had a nice relaxing meal. Food was good and service great.
The food was excellent. The service was very, very slow, and we only had 3 people.
Popular menu items were unavailable. They brought substitutes with the orders without telling us and the food was overcooked.
Went for my husband’s birthday and it was the biggest waste of time and effort. Our server moved at a snail’s pace and was indifferent at best. The entrees, when we finally got them were both overcooked and lukewarm. I didn’t eat mine and ended up getting chipotle on the way home instead. Never again.
Valentine’s Day Dinner with my husband
Had a very nice Valentine’s Day dinner. Food is simple for the most part but good. We go there a lot. The ambiance is really very relaxing there. Comfortable sitting and not noisy.
Clyde’s is a place that is once again doing a great job. Try it again. You will enjoy.
ordered the $150. Surf and turf valentine week special. It seemed the filet (turf) and crab cake (surf) were smaller than is typical. However both were delicious.
Wonderful place. Quiet, beautiful decor with ship and saddle models. Thought crab cake was a bit small, but enjoyed every other aspect of the place.
The Smith Island cake was very dry and we each only had one bite and did not finish it. I was disappointed that our waitress did not ask us if everything was alright with the cake and I certainly would have told her. For $10, we certainly had high expectations and were very disappointed.
Birthday but nothing special happened
Great staff. Wonderful atmosphere. Excellent at sorting allergies and such.
This experience was awful. I sat at the booth for 20 minutes with no one asking for anything. I went to the front desk to ask for the manager and when the manager showed. I told her that I had been sitting here with no wait staff to see about anything. I picked up my stuff and left. I am ashamed of this experience because I like the Clyde’s brand.
Crab cakes very good as usual, shrimp salad was pedestrian at best. I wouldn't order it again. Service was poor. Nice guy, just overloaded. It seemed that we were an afterthought. Clyde's Reston definitely not as good as it used to be just a few months back.
Anniversary dinner the steak was perfect as well as the sweet potato side however because we ate to the max we had asked if we could get our dessert to go and server said yes. He handed me the to go box and off we went. But I was disappointed with the dessert your very special creme brûlée it looked as though it was just plopped in the box . Would have appreciated the dessert placed in some sort of container not just placed or dropped into the box having the taste of the cardboard wasn’t what was expected.
The drinks and food were excellent.
There was a mistake in seating, but it was fixed and the manager was very nice. The only down side was we were seated in the back (my wife has trouble sitting in a booth and needed to sit in a chair) and the noise level can and did get high; the bigger groups sit in the rear.
It's so dark and it has musty smell.
Food was not good at all.
We had an enjoyable evening with my daughter and husband to celebrate my birthday. We all steak and each was grilled to perfection.
I believe our server's name was Darrell. He did a marvelous job meeting the allergy needs of a member of our party. He was cordial and supportive.
Excellent menu with selections for all palates. Thorough wine list allowed for the selection of a great wine. Dinner was well prepared. Was there during "prime time" for dinner, 7:30PM to about 9:00PM so it was a bit noisy but all in all, it didn't impact the dinner conversation. Loved the aviation theme for the decor. Looking forward to visiting again soon.
The food was mediocre but the service and atmosphere were great. My duck was overdone and under seasoned and the octopus appetizer was over cooked.
Good value and consistently great service from enthusiastic staff. Food is well prepared. Nicely decorated.
We went to this place after work to celebrate birthday of a colleague. The hostess and wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The food options were not versatile; however, whatever we ordered tasted really good. They even gave us a free dessert. We had a great tie overall.
The roasted chicken was awesome!
We always enjoy the atmosphere and convenience of Clydes! Good food and just a nice place to go and relax!
Great food, superb service.
Daughter getting married
Good food and great service. It's always a pleasure dining at Clyde's
Great lunch. I had excellent fish and chips. My friend and I stayed longer catching up. Server was available but not hovering.
We had a good time at the Clyde’s in Reston. It was a little loud, but it was also Saturday night. We enjoyed the food, service could’ve been a little better, but overall a good experience.
I specifically asked for a quiet table and we were placed next to a loud party of 20 people. We had to shout to be heard. The food was average.
The service was exceptional. Quick turn around in the kitchen, attentive wait staff.The smoked mozzarella ravioli was fabulous and we substituted the butter sauce for the meat sauce which really it yummy.
Delicious food and great atmosphere! Loved the baked cheddar appetizer and the Parmesan Trout I had!!
Great place and atmosphere in Reston. Superb service with the greatest waiter ever.
While the food was pretty good, the service was definitely lacking. We waited 20 minutes after ordering to get a bottle of wine. Then the appetizers showed up within 5 minutes and 5 minutes later we were moving them aside as the entrees were there. In summary, decent food and reasonably priced but doubt we'll be back.
Reston Clyde’s is slipping. Twice in a year we’ve been with the same poor service and management. Food is ok as long as you stick with the basics.
