Call and ask our event managers about smaller private spaces for your lunch or dinner with friends or family. Exclusive space, very limited interaction with staff and other patrons. Rooms fit 8-14 and 8-16 guests. Call 571-209-1200 and ask for Adrien or Tara.

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.

Typically love Clydes, but I didn't like that we were stuck way back in a corner...I felt claustrophobic when the room was practically empty. Wish we had been asked if we wanted inside or outside...didn't know they were offering outside that evening. Otherwise, love the ambiance. Don't order the meatloaf as chef tried too hard to make it gourmet and the dish missed the mark and was a disappointment The salmon, crab cake, and lobster shepard's pie were all very tasty. I thank the staff for their service.

Food was not as good as other Clyde's I have been to around NOVA. Our server was very good though. Appreciated his thoughtfulness bringing the table some on the house coffee cake because the kitchen was slow. Patio was great place to eat out during current restrictions. Disappointed with the food.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. I was disappointed that our lobsters were not hot. They had clearly been out of the pit a long time before they were served to us. I plan on going back but next time I’m asking to make sure they are hot. Even warm the were delicious.

Patio was great as was the service. One nit - the coleslaw was disappointing -too sweet and minced to an unrecognizable mush. Why??

Terrible experience started with check-in, which was partially my fault, but the manager?, was not very accommodating. Finally seated us in the corner with two table pushed together. There policy is every time you have contact with the server you have to have your mask on. Well normally that would not be a problem, but the service was so BAD that we were constantly putting our masks on then off then on then off, etc, etc, etc. Started with the bread, which we were told was still "cooking in the oven". Again masks on. Drinks were okay , but artichoke appetizer arrived lukewarm, and when server questioned, she was not sure whether it should be hot or cold. Took it back and brought another one shortly afterwards. Again mask on. Entrees arrived. Fried chicken sandwich dried out to the put of almost inedible. Eggs Benedict-muffin and ham so tough they were unable to be cut. Eggs not poached properly. Steak and eggs just okay as also the steak and frites. I really wouldn't call them frites, as they were just french fries. The best entree was the meatloaf, green beans and mashed potatoes. Then masks on for boxes to take home. Masks on for dessert order. Masks on for dessert course. Mask on for bill. Mask on for payment and signature. Dining out is suppose to be a enjoyable event. This was not. I expect much more from the Clydes group, but this was a disaster.

They sat us at a table then the manager approached us within ten minutes and said we couldn’t sit there because our family of 7 was too close to the EMPTY tables in the room we were in- the only ones in that room, and the restaurant was about 1/6 full. We were celebrating my mom’s birthday and we got up and left because the manager was so accusatory rather than apologetic for their mistake. That reservation had been set for over a week and we had to walk out because they were so rude to us and unorganized.

The service was so slow. Our waiter was nice but the food and drinks took forever to come out. Especially our main courses, we suspected the kitchen forgot about us. The food was good but not sure I’ll be back if service was this bad. Took us 3.5 hours to finish lunch. Thank god we weren’t in any rush that day.

We wanted to escape from DC for a few hours and stumbled upon this place as a recommendation because Red Fox Inn in Middleburg was closed that day. This place is a short easy drive and you feel like you stepping into a farmhouse vacation. The outdoor patio is spacious with overheard vines and trees. The food was wonderful and the cocktails were unusual and delicious! You cannot go wrong if you need a romantic, outdoors venue that feels like a winery. We will be back soon!

This used to be one of our favorite places to eat but it's fallen short the past couple of times we've gone. First, you can't make reservations for outdoor seating so even though we had a reservation, we were told we would have to wait up to 45 minutes for outdoor seating. In the time of COVID-19, they need to get a system in order that allows for outdoor reservations. That alone puts them behind the curve of other local restaurants.
There are no clear signs in the front that point to a separate hostess stand around the back for outdoor seating so if you go inside to check-in, you get re-directed. When we were told that it would be a 45 minute wait for outdoor seating, we asked the outside hostess if we could get a beverage at the bar and take it over the bench seating where we were going to wait and she said that would be fine. But, then the bartender inside told us we had to sit inside if we wanted to drink so we opted out. When I suggested someone inform the hostess of that rule, they said "we'll let her know, she's young". It has nothing to do with age, and everything to do with training!
Our waiter did enforce us wearing masks when speaking to him (outdoor seating so surprising but not upsetting in these times) but the other waiters around us did not enforce that with their tables. They should either ALL be enforcing it or not at all.
Although our waiter was very nice, we didn't have the best service (I think our waiter was new or very much an introvert).
