Mask Usage
We know it is no fun to wear a mask while enjoying a night out, but our staff's safety is no laughing matter.
We require all guests to wear a mask while moving about the restaurant, and when speaking to Clyde's employees.
Masks have been a hot topic, with passionate views on all sides. With our team and their families' health at stake, we must err on the side of caution. We hope you will understand and look forward to the day, hopefully soon, when we can all throw our masks in the trash.

We enjoyed dining outside. The food was very good but our waiter did not come to check on us but three times in our 1 1/2 hours at the restaurant. Clyde’s wait staff are not as well trained as Jacksons or Mon Ami Gabi staff. We will continue to visit Clyde’s for the food even though the wait staff is friendly but not good.

They offered both indoor and outdoor dining, but it was cold outside and the indoors was spacious, so we chose indoors. They easily social distanced us from other patrons. The food and drink selection was very good and we all enjoyed the meals and drinks we chose.

Clyde's now has propane heaters in the patio area -- about one for each table. Even with temps in the 40s, we were comfortable.

We live in Baltimore, but had to go down to Reston on an errand. Never had been to Clyde’s before, but decided to give it a try based upon the reviews and the menu I saw on line. Wow! It was a great choice.....one of the best meals we’ve had out in ages, especially at their price point. I had the chicken and my husband had the trout. Both were excellent and the portions very generous. Covid protocols were carefully followed and service was friendly and efficient. Definitely will return!

We made reservations for our 16 wedding anniversary, and the food was not hot or tasted good .

The appetizers was the fried Goat cheese in honey . This tasted very good and was the highlight of the meal and experience.

My wife’s meal did not look or taste like anything special , her dish was the Cuban sandwich . When the dished came to the table it looked like a sandwiched squished between two pieces of french bread and lacked taste and passion, the boiled ham was the cheapest ham that could go on a sandwich , the pulled pork was dry and the sandwich had no taste . My wife asked for some kind of spicy mustard or Mayo and she was brought yellow mustard . This did not help with the taste .

I had the short rib and it looked sad on the plate . The menu description and what was on the plate was very disappointing . The purée cauliflower was not puréed ( chunky mashed cauliflower) the spinach was not fresh ( frozen) no taste and the short rib had no taste , it was liked it was boiled in water , it was tuff and not tender but I had to salt and pepper this several times to just eat it . For the price it was not worth it .

We were very disappointed because a few years back we stopped here and the food and beverages were great .

My wife and I will really consider ever coming back to this restaurant. Like I said I had hoped that this special night for us the food could of looked and tasted good . It really felt and looked like no passion in the kitchen , we eat with our eyes first so when the plates hit the table the expectations and experience left the building .

We had a great outdoor dining experience. Excellent service and delicious food. The outdoor heaters are perfect for a mild winter day. I will return soon! I’d recommend Clyde’s without any hesitancy!

We usually go to Clyde's Willow Creek Farm but decided to visit the Reston restaurant for a change for New Year's Eve. The appetizers and entrees were great and we really like the decor/theme of the restaurant. And Reston Town Center was still festively decorated along with ice skaters in the rink. It was a really nice evening out.

Been dining here for years. Always get treated like family. It’s also one of the few places I can eat without a worry about my shellfish allergy. They can always accommodate. Great staff.

Family Christmas Eve tradition. This year, the restaurant was quieter than normal due to COVID. We enjoy the atmosphere. Food and service was excellent as usual. If you are concerned about COVID protocols, the staff is doing a great job to ensure your safety and theirs.

Always great food and service. Comfortable, casual atmosphere and vibe with upscale themed decor. Never rushed by waitstaff. Relaxing experience. Experience at Clydes is always consistent with high quality food and service. Glad to see they were doing business during these trying times.

Chose patio dining for safety, but it was noisy next to the skating rink and got rather cold after the heater ran out of propane with no refill available. Food was good but difficult to enjoy given the conditions. Probably go back after COVID-19 during warmer weather and no skaters.

My friend and I sat outside on a beautiful Sunday. The wait staff was attentive and the Eggs Benedict were delish. I also enjoyed the $4 Bellinis that went along with the brunch. I also recommend the fried goat cheese appetizer.

Clydes is always good.

Unfortunately, our food was mediocre at best. A shrimp salad was ordered and had to be sent back bc there were 2 shrimp on the plate. A bowl of chili came that was borderline cold to lukewarm. The milkshakes were good, but the paper straws disintegrated while enjoying the dessert and the spoons they brought to finish were regular tablespoons so not long enough to prevent getting ice cream all over your hands. When we arrived for our reservation, we were seated at a table right by hostess stand so the cold air was on us from the front entrance throughout the meal. We understand Covid regulations, but management should think through which tables they put into use under these circumstances. We were told they were unable to move us. Not a good way to start the evening.

Made reservations for a Birthday celebration. During the reservation process it asks if there is a celebration.
At the end of our course the waiter came by and took our plates and gave us the check. Didn't mention if we wanted desert or the Birthday celebration.

It Was great atmosphere outside with Town Center Christmas tree lit. There were heaters but apparently several did not work. We had table for 4 and asked for another heater and never got one. Even though there seemed to be extras sitting around. One heater is really only sufficient fir two people maximum.
They were doing well with masks and distancing so felt safe outdoor dining!

We went to Clydes for Thanksgiving. Our server was great. Happy, professional and very attentive. The menu had a variety of choices. My mother had the turkey dinner and it was very good! I had the trout which is always fresh and delicious. I had the bread pudding for dessert which was moist. More like custard than bread pudding. Absolutely delicious. We were at the Reston location which is a great festive atmosphere.

Great experience. We were seated safely outside, well spaced from other diners and overlooking the ice rink. Food was perfectly prepared and the service was attentive without being obsequious. Look forward to returning.
