Disappointed in the small portion of rock fish that was served. Fingerling potatoes were excellent but the side salad was tasteless. Walnut dessert was abysmal.

Wife’s Rigatoni was good.

I love Clyde’s as it’s an institution in DC. Their service is always superb, the food is scrumptious, ambiance is quiet and the setting is delightful. One of the best restaurants in town, hands down!

Rockfish was overcooked and underseasoned. Wait staff didn't check in very much, but it was otherwise a nice dinner.

Longtime fans of the Chevy Chase location for sentimental reasons, we visited Clyde’s for Christmas Eve dinner, more for the unfailingly cheerful atmosphere than for the food, but were pleasantly surprised. I had the steak, which was outstandingly tender; its accompaniments of pave potatoes and sautéed spinach were undistinguished, but good, especially with the red wine sauce that covered them. My daughter had the roasted half chicken, which — perhaps because it was boneless — seemed somewhat less than a whole half, but was well prepared and very flavorful. The star of that dish was the sautéed garlic broccolini. We’d order that again as a dish on its own. Our server was friendly and responsive; he made sure we were happily set up with our Ten Sisters Sauvignon Blanc and extra bread and butter. The brownie sundae, which my daughter always orders deconstructed, with each element separate, was if anything even more luscious than usual. A wonderful evening!

Everything served was delicious and well- prepared. The decor is very handsome and the ambience was comfortable and easy. It was an excellent choice for a Christmas Eve family dinner. The EggNog is awesome!

Shrimp & grits for lunch was seasoned just right. Quiet table with nice window on Wisconsin Ave. Having Thai specialties on the menu was a nice surprise to go along with the traditional Clyde's menu.

The food at Clyde's was, as usual, excellent. I had the filet mignon with spinach and a potato dish. All were very tasty and prepared as ordered.

My server, Abby, was a delight. Her demeanor and friendliness substantially enhanced my visit.

I look forward to returning to Clyde's Chevy Chase soon.

Always a wonderful dining experience. Lunch salads are fresh. Could use a few more leaves, rather small. Sandwiches are very large, Reuben is perfection. The service was outstanding and attentive. The train is delightful.

It was nice the only issues was a pungent not so pleasant smell in the downstairs when I went to the restroom… smelled like sewage. They need to have that checked. It turned my stomach

Had brunch with a friend for the holidays.

The server was friendly and accommodating.

We were happy with our meal.

Shrimp and Grits we're delicious and got.

Good dining experience

The food was quite good and the key lime pie was delicious. Time to deliver the food was quite slow. This was probably because of the small wait staff. One of the managers took our order and did a good job making sure that our orders were correctly filled and the food delivered at the correct temperature. He deserves five stars. We like Clyde's (at several locations) and will definitely return. Let's all hope that Covid 19 recedes and things get back to normal.

We had a wonderful evening — the food, the service made it all very special. It is the cozy neighborhood spot to enjoy time with friends and family. It is clear that the restaurant is managed very well since our evening went so smoothly.

Warm welcome, quick seating and attentive service. Spaghetti and clams were tasty but more clams would have been appreciated. Bread service as always was excellent. Crusty sourdough and whipped butter.

This Clyde's location was much better than others to which we have been. The hostess station was efficient and welcoming and our server, Zoe, was friendly, professional and responsive to our needs.
The food was delicious and reasonably priced. We were in the restaurant fairly early at 6:30 so the noise level was conducive to conversation.
We will return.

several times to clean it off before we had finished dinner...
Very clean bathroom which is important for me!

Clyde's of Chevy Chase is my go-to place for meeting with friends who drive. I can get from my front door to Cylde's via one bus or the Red Line while they can drive and park very easily and cheaply.

Clyde's did not disappoint. The reason for Excellent instead of Outstanding is because of two things:

Our reservation was at 11:30 am. (I arrived at around 11:15; my friend got there about 11:30am. I was shown to a booth near a window. It was a bit cold, but not unbearably so. Once I raised some concern to the person who seated me, she did not offer an alternative. Admittedly, I did not specifically ask to be reseated.

Across from our booth was a large party of four adults and several children. Toward the end of their time there, there was a big spill--on the adult end of the table. Liquid spilled on the table, on a couple of the men, and on the floor. The waitress continued serving, leaving the parties to fend for themselves in the cleanup. That was so stark an example of poor service, I was discomforted. I'm 79 and sometimes drop and spill things. Would I have been left to my own devices?
