    The art in the decor, the art in the food, and the art in the service will keep people coming to this Clyde's. What initially feels almost anachronistic is soon replaced by awe and appreciation for beauty and quality. Spending an hour or two in this restaurant is refreshment for both the pallet and the soul.

    Recommend Clydes have a family section and a quiet section for adults only. We sat in a booth surrounded by families with young screaming children and that made the noise level high and our dining experience very unpleasant.

    Great venue for our party of six, at a banquette of sorts. The table was not in the middle of the room or near the kitchen, so the noise level was good for an elderly member of our party. The food was very good - we loved the menu's multiple fish and seafood offerings. The only issue, a minor one, was that I called in advance to note that we had a birthday celebration at our table but that got lost somehow. Not a big deal. The hostess at the front desk was very helpful and patient in taking multiple family photos as we departed. The ample parking is a plus!

    Mother's Day Brunch long wait for food which was not good food. Crab Cakes very small size of the egg yolks and egg yolks were jellied and dry for the Crab Cakes egg benedict along with dry red potatoes. Add also the overcooked iron Steak and Eggs, steak was not medium and the eggs scrambled dry. All food was cold when delivered to the table.

    As usual Clydes had a diverse menu and comfortable setting. Cuisine was good. The server who was very pleasant lacked training: he brought the hot appetizer(calamari) and entree at the same time. So we could not eat the appetizer and had to ask for a doggie bag to take it home.

    We had gone to Clyde's the previous day for a Celebration of Life event for my brother and decided to return the next day for dinner. The food was excellent. I had a pork chop and my wife a crab cake. Both were delicious and perfectly prepared. Our server was friendly and attentive. The restaurant, with its transportation theme, was charming. Even though the restaurant is large and there were many other diners, the noise level was moderate and allowed my wife and I to converse easily. My only complaint is that there is not a Clyde's in Los Angeles. If you ever decide to open a branch on the West Coast, we will be your first and most vocal advertisers!

    The bolognese sauce for the rigatoni was a bit lacking in the sauce category. The trout had too much beading. The pirogies were tasteless and 3 shrimp for a cocktail is borderline ridiculous. Clydes has diminished in the quantity and quality since the pandemic. Waitress, although pleasant, not once asked it we’d like our drinks freshened. We like Clyde’s restaurant decor but that’s about it.

    A wonderful place for a working lunch! Like many people nowadays, I work at home, and have meetings at restaurants where it's possible to spread out papers and review materials. Clyde's is my go-to place for these meetings, which we always hold after the lunch time crowd is gone. At Clyde's, we can depend on wonderful food and drink--even if it's not on the menu--and a perfect setting for a relaxed discussion. The service, while attentive, is never intrusive. Allison, our waiter this Sunday, was terrific!

    Pleasant atmosphere and GREAT services. Server made a great appetizer recommendation and arranged for me to get medium rare salmon in what was the normal salad preparation for steak. Food was excellent -- especially the zucchini chips. A nice place for families and a comfortable place to go alone and read a book.
