An early Valentines dinner for us, and Clyde’s was the perfect choice. The staff was super-accommodating helping with a surprise gift, and moving our reservation time around several times due to unexpected timing issues. The food was excellent — filet you could cut with a butter knife and a crab cake that flaked with barely a touch of a fork. Our server Mo was personable and fun and helped make the evening perfect. I’d highly recommend dining here to anybody.

We were seated in the bar area which was very noisy. Although the food was decent, the service was not ideal.

Lovely multiple dining rooms provide an intimate dining environment; Uncharacteristically quiet and formal for a Clyde’s. Service was attentive and professional. Menu fairly typical of a Clyde’s, with some local twists. Good, although limited wine and craft beer selection. Excellent salad and tenderloin stroganoff.

Excellent! Food was outstanding. Drinks were great. Ambiance was perfect for or date. I requested a quiet corner for our date and it was perfect. Our server, Jacob, was excellent. He enjoyed sharing the history of the location when we asked. Service was awesome! Will definitely recommend this place!

Was in town from Dallas and took my in-laws and my daughter who is in college in the DC area to our favorite restaurant, and of course it did not disappoint! We had all of our favorite dishes and it was difficult to leave at the end of the meal. Nobody does food like Clyde’s!

With reservations, we were still seated in the bar area where it was very loud. The food was good, but overpriced for steaks.

Great experience this has been the preferred birthday spot for my husband for the past couple of years where he dines like a king. We were off in the side room where it was sort of an equestrian theme and has a fire place. It was a tad loud but we still had a lovely meal. The food was delicious and they surprised us by comping our dessert for my husband's birthday he was so full he didn't really want dessert but I told him get something (since I felt bad I didn't get him a cake or anything). For the two of use including adult drinks appetizer, and our meals it was around $100 so a bit of a splurge but certainly well worth it for the quality of the food and the excellent service.

It was my 1st time there. Seating at the fire place was perfect by the male host; he's very sophisticated. Jim the waiter was great. Always checking on us and refilling. Beef and cheese roll was fantastic and a creative idea. Portraits was beautiful and the reconstruction of the facility was very warm, comfy and cozy. Having the fire places added to the welcome homey environment. Can't wait to go back.

Thank you and God Bless You.

I finally convinced my friends to meet me at Clyde's Willow Creek Farm for lunch. It's been on my list of must sees for a few months now. The experience did not disappoint! From the stunning setting in each of it's many dining rooms, to the superb service, and the exquisite food, it was a truly great dining experience all around. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion!

Great night with good friends. Food was excellent but service was not the best. He was very good at eye avoidance and we practically had to jump in front of him to get his attention. This is highly unusual at this Clyde's. Really enjoyed our evening because everything else was wonderful.

Clydes Willow Creek is easily the best atmosphere in Ashburn. No other restaurant comes close. The food is very good but I wish they offered some more creative dishes and changed their menu more often.

We had a reservation about 10 days ahead of the date. We were put in a room where there was an office party or something like that. The noise level was terrible. We didn't realize it when we first got there. The noise built up as the party got going. It ruined the evening. There are a lot of choices in the area......it will be a while before I returned.

Very disappointed. Took so long to get our food that the server sent the manager to our table without us even complaining or requesting. Our food order was incorrect. Plus the quality and taste of food did not meet our expectation On our reservation I indicated we were celebrating 3 birthdays and we were seated in the noisy bar.

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.

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.
