Wonderful service! We were able to get the 300 room which provided comfort and conversation for our family. Thomas provided interesting history, and all servers fussed over us—making us feel special. Thank you, Willow Creek!

Clydes continues to hit on all cylinders! We used to always love coming for ambiance and to show off restaurant to our visitors but now come for the excellent food as well. My partner had the hanger steak which he said was flavorful but a little overcooked and chewy though. Normally orders it and it's amazing. Server offered to replace it but didn't want to interrupt our dinner to wait for it. Everything else was wonderful so will consider that experience when ordering steak in the future.

I've been to serval Clydes over the years and the food has always been a solid B or B+. Sadly the last few times I've been to this location the food has been a solid C at best. Not bad but not great. Wonderful setting, wine list and staff, wish the food quality was better.

My wife’s side toast was forgotten and finally came after we finished eating our meals and after I requested it to be removed from the check.
Everything else was great.

Our waiter was very busy on our Friday lunch, but the restaurant was not crowded. His service was adequate. We finally had our water glasses filled for the first time about 25 minutes after being seated. A small plate of very stale, dried out, totally inedible coffee cake was brought to the table after we placed our order. My real disappointment was in a very overpriced butter lettuce and shrimp salad. Extremely overpriced for a very moderate number of medium sized shrimp, butter lettuce, two small pieces of citrus, and a lot of mustard seeds. No flavor and definitely not filling. My friend had a steak medallion and lettuce wedge salad. She was equally disappointed. I expect Clyde's to serve a meal that has an element of something beyond very mediocre. I felt ripped off.

We went for Thanksgiving and it was a great experience. We were sat per our requested room and table type on time. It wasn’t too over crowded and the host stand was well staffed and attended to. Our server was great, the room was beautiful and I work on interiors so I’m picky. The food was really good, tasted homemade!

Felt a little rushed, but to be expected ...very very busy. Do wish the carraige out side would have been decorated as in years past (great for pictures). Will be back for next year....front desk folks could be a little bit more cordial...one person in particular a little snappy!

I love the feel of Willow Creek. I am used to a meal with a large family, but I felt like I was a part of a large family at Clyde’s. The food is delicious and portion sizes were quite large. Our waiter was friendly and gave us great service. It was a wonderful Thanksgiving meal and I plan on returning for another Thanksgiving.

Finally, a decent wine list. Finally, actual pie, not ramekin. Portions seemed a bit more generous. A lovely place.

I was most surprised with the quality of food on Thanksgiving. The quality of the food at the Reston Clydes has declined so over the years, that I wasn't expecting much at the Willow Creek restaurant. But the food was excellent. They far exceeded my expectations. The turkey was cooked just right, moist and tender. The green beans were al dente and the best that I have had in a restaurant. And the bread was flavorful, baked just right with a crisp crust. I don't usually get pumpkin pie at a restaurant because no one has been able to come near my mother's pumpkin pies. Most add clove or nutmeg. I don't know what Clyde's used for spice, but I didn't taste those spices. The pumpkin and pecan pies were superb. And the servings were so generous I have enjoyed several home meals of leftovers.

Food tasted great. Well prepared and well presented. It was our anniversary so they offered desert on the house. Our server was very pleasant and friendly and was available when needed. When it comes to soft drinks, an elevated service would be for the server to offer refills rather than be asked. This would also apply to bread and butter for the table. I would think that every customer would expect this level of service from Clyde’s.

We had a wonderful happy hour with wine at the bar. Then moved to our table. Our waiter was very friendly and informative regarding the menu. The food was delicious. I recommend the butternut ravioli. We celebrated a birthday. Our waiter made us feel welcome. And we had plenty of time to celebrate.

At the time I made the reservation I mentioned that we would be coming to celebrate my daughter’s 16th Birthday. I was disappointed to see that this restaurant did not do anything to help recognize her birthday as other restaurants do either through a complimentary dessert or a discounted meal. Also, my Mother ordered the salmon and she said is was extremely salty. With regards to the service provided to us, it felt as though our waiter really didn’t want to serve us.
All in all our experience was very mediocre.

For a double birthday celebration and a unique family reunion situation, I could not of imagined a more perfect setting. I not only do not have a single negative, but more importantly I can say that everything far exceeded my expectations! It was perfect. I actually can't remember a dining event as spectular as this. Thanks Andy and the hostess and the reservation person for making everything come together. Members of my party kept asking me "who do you know to get such service, etc?" Thanks Clyde's!

We've been fans of Clyde's establishments throughout the DC area for years but had never made it to their Willow Creek Farm location. We made a late reservation on a Saturday and made our way there - and we're sure glad we did. First off, the atmosphere is wonderful...true comfort & homely. Next, our waitress was absolutely fantastic - she was helpful, attentive, entertaining, and above all, genuine in making sure we had a nice evening. To top things off, the food & drinks were excellent.
We went with a goal of having a relaxed evening in a nice place with comfort food, and Clyde's checked every box. We will undoubtedly be back!

We were a party of eight celebrating family birthdays . The room that we were in gave the perfect amount of privacy and we never felt rushed. The atmosphere, with the beautiful murals and the lit fireplace added to our festivities. Everyone at Clyde's made us feel special and the food and specialty beverages were terrific!
