Clyde's is always a reliable favorite. Good variety on the menu, reasonable prices, quality food, and good service can be counted on. Each dining room has its own character and we choose one depending on the season, although the Newport Room is the all-time favorite.

Next time you’re looking for a date night restaurant where you don’t need to talk loudly just to hear one another, kind of sophisticated but still relaxed and unpretentious, cozy ambiance, excellent service, free & easy parking, serves food late, delicious options, good wine list, reservations available, usually no standing in line even if you don’t have reservations, not ridiculously expensive, you can dress up or dress casually and still look appropriate, and you skip the hassle of driving in to DC, I recommend Clyde’s at Mark Center!

Clyde value is good. WARNING. Check your bill at the table. We bought & paid for drinks at the bar. Then carried the drinks to the table. When we got the bill at the table, the server added the cost of the drinks we carried to the table. The server was most likely instructed by management to do that. Would have been better if he asked before preparing the bill. I say again. CHECK the CHARGES on your BILL

Very enjoyable evening. Food was excellent. Just loved the lobster, and wish it could be part of the menu all the time! Service was superb. Clyde's is a great place for lunch or dinner. The atmosphere is good, and it isn't a noisy place to dine. How refreshing. I love the place.

Stopped for late dinner. Came with reservations and was able to get a table in the Adirondack Room almost upon arrival. Had the Pork sausages with cheese fries and the rigatoni with a salad. The meals were prepared and presented with care. The food tasted excellent. The ambiance of Clyde’s is always first class

Good service. Small nit - I asked for the chicken sandwich, but I asked that they leave off the bread (trying to cut down carbs :-) ). The meal arrived with the bread, which I removed. Again, otherwise it was very good.

The Mark Center Clyde's restaurant provides an excellent venue for special occasions and the service is more than excellent. The server did an excellent job with providing the level of service for memorable occasions and we all were impressed with how she memorized each order without writing it down. I restaurant serves as both a comfortable dining place and also for families. It was my first time there since the Clyde's in Tysons Corner closed and it certainly won't be my last. I look forward to my next visit.

The check in didn’t go well. The staff was either new, or not very competent. And to top it off, I included that this was a birthday celebration in the reservation, and there was no acknowledgment of that. Very disappointing.

The fog could have been better from waiting over 1 1/2 for them. The starters were great. The main course had a long wait, cold, seemed it could have been better. I would give this place another chance. We only had 7 people in our group.

Seated quickly. Food was good. But miss-communication between server and kitchen. French fries were supposed to be unsalted and came to table salted. Green beans were supposed to be steamed, no butter and came with butter. The waiter did not offer to bring it back again the way we had ordered it. So we were disappointed with the service. We enjoyed the ambiance and it was Sassy to have conversation because it was relatively quiet. Will come again and next time make a more pointed request about no butter and no salt.

Not sure if the restaurant is under new management, but if so they should go back to the old management. I say this because I have been eating at this restaurant for years and this is the first time that I have been totally disappointed with the food. The grilled corn salad had lots of corn husk in it, the main lobster seemed to be less than the size stated on the menu and the coleslaw wasn’t good at all. I don’t plan to eat here again. It is definitely not worth the prices they charge.
