Brought a friend visiting from the west coast to Clyde’s (a favorite of ours) for lunch. The restaurant was not terribly busy for 1:30 pm and we were seated promptly. It took several minutes for a server to show and VERY long for drinks to arrive. After raving about Clyde’s our friend was a little surprised. Again…not busy. When the drinks arrived we placed our order along with an appetizer. After waiting 20 mins for the appetizer our entree’s arrive with it. The server was very kind and brought the entrees back to the kitchen(this server was not our server…who knows where she was). The manager came by and assured us that we would be receiving fresh entree’s. We appreciated that. I ordered the crab cake and was shocked by how small it was and wished I had ordered the double but at 34.00 for two it seemed pricey. But it was disappointingly small. Maybe the dinner portion is larger. I won’t order it again. The other entree’s were tasty but the overall vibe was lost by the time our server finally reappeared. We ordered another round of drinks but again by the time we received them we were done eating and ready for the check. A really off day...I don’t know the name of our server but she was different from previous enthusiastic servers that keep bringing us back. We will probably take a break from Clyde’s at Reston..

Bar was over-crowded and understaffed! It took 20 minutes to get a drink. Food was EXCELLENT and service was also. Noise level when we were first seating was extremely loud. Our server, Chris, was nice enough to move us away from the large group where the noise level was much better. Chris was an excellent server! Overall, we enjoyed the experience and will return.

Service was absolutely terrible. The server would leave us for period at a time. Took me three tries to get her attention to order me a second drink (after waiting for 20 minutes with no drink). Then had to catch her again to request a dessert menu. Outside of the non-existent service, the food was good.

Advice for full-figure folks: The table sizes vary significantly. Ensure that you are comfortably seated. The food was very good. I was surprised that they do not offer baked potatoes when I ordered a ribeye steak. Smashed potatoes are available upon request, as they are not on the menu either. My strawberry shortcake was so-so. The biscuit was very, very hard. This was Mother’s Day so perhaps the kitchen was overwhelmed. Clyde’s is still a favorite!

Not one of my better experiences at Clydes. Service was slow. Waitress was fairly inattentive. Never came by to check on drink refills and brought the pre-meal bread with the meal. The other Clydes locations are much better all around. The Rest on location? Meh

We have bee coming to Clyde’s since it opened, probably 25 years ago. I couldn’t give you my five star rating, because that was the best I could do on a very busy holiday day. Otherwise, we love the restaurant and will continue to eat with you.

We went on Mother’s Day with our reservation. We were able to be seated early, which was a bonus if you have kids. Our server was a little frazzled but mostly on top of things- again, it was mother’s day so there’s a little more understanding. The complimentary brunch coffee cake was fresh and very good. We ordered the beignets which needed more powdered sugar and our mains- crab cake Bennie and breakfast sandwich - were very good and we left clean plates.

Disappointing, especially considering the price. 7:00 PM reservations that aren't available until 7:30; made longer while we wait for a 'seater'. Drink specials that turn out to be unavailable; and then only when the server is asked "where is my drink, my companions got theirs?" - "Oh, I forgot to tell you..." The rib eye was less than top quality - quite fatty. The onion rings and crispy fingerling potatoes: meh. Trying to get the servers eye to pay the bill - difficult, despite lots of empty places by that time. Overall not an experience to be repeated by choice.

This was my family’s first time here to celebrate Mother’s Day. Our service was horrible. It took a long time to get our food then, our waitress literally forgot we were there. We waited for over 30 minutes for her to come to ask for our check. When she finally came by she said, ‘oh sorry’ rudely like we hadn’t been sitting forever. My dads steak was over cooked. My moms scallop dish was so small she had to eat some of my fries from my small crab cake portion. We won’t be back. Thanks.

The ambience and menu choices are always excellent. However, at this visit we were not pleased to see a rather sizable increase in prices. In a few cases, the increase was considerably outsized considering the quantity of plated food (eg scallop entree). It is disappointing to see that Clyde's past moderate pricing seems to be disappearing.

Service was generally quick and professional as usual for a Clyde’s restaurant, and the staff went the extra mile to accommodate our large party when it became clear we’d made the reservation for the wrong date. Food was good, if not great, and prices are in line with the other restaurants in the area of this quality. Drinks were excellent!

Love Clyde's, always a reliable choice for good unpretentious food and friendly service. One note to the manager - on our last visit which happened to coincide with Cinco de Mayo we were seated in the same section as a very large and very loud group of non-Mexicans that decided that it is a good enough reason to drink and be extremely noisy. We eventually asked to be re-seated into a different section, as did another family who was seated in the same section. It seems like a simple decision for a hostess in a not at all crowded restaurant to NOT seat families in the same section with the rowdy and noisy group. Just a hassle for everyone, including your staff, later.

We came here for prom night and the workers never took us seriously. We waited almost an hour for food, then the manager came told us he would give us 50% off for everything. We ended up taking it to go. We will never offered any refills or anything. Worst experience I have had in s restaurant like this.

Love Clyde’s for holidays and regular dining too. You can’t beat sitting in their outside area in the Spring and Summer. We went Easter Sunday evening. They were out of the dish I requested but I was able to find something else right away that was delicious. Most people had come for brunch that day and it was too cold to sit outside. But a very shy nice young busboy told me that they still had some hot cross buns left and would we like them? My sister and I love these and we both said yes immediately. They were wonderful! This is why I like Clydes, they always find a way to make it special!

Great Easter brunch of smoked salmon frittata and Monte Cristo French toast with Brie, ham, strawberry jam, pecan butter, maple syrup and brunch potatoes. $4.00 mimosas (or Bloody Mary) a bonus. Service was great in spite of the Easter crowds.
