Food is always interesting
Food is always interesting and well prepared. Our server was pleasant and attentive, but not really trained properly. Place settings were incorrectly positioned. She tried to remove plates, glasses before BOTH diners were finished. Small things, but just a little training or her own dining experience at a good restaurant could correct.

WE had a terrific time, our
WE had a terrific time, our waitress was especially a positive part of the evening, sorry can't remember her name. We sat upstairs with the great view, only issue was something is wrong with the ventilation system as three in our party were having trouble with their eyes. the waitress did not try to hide the fact that it was an issue they were working on, and I wouldn't let that keep me away from a return visit. This restaurant deserves support though it seems out of the main stream because of location.

The only problem with Silo
The only problem with Silo .5% Wine Bar is the acoustics. Because there are so many hard surfaces (glass, cement, tile, metal) and high ceilings the noise level was so high our waitress and ourselves had to shout at each other to be heard. I wish all of the new restaurants would add had some softer touches like table cloths, carpets/area rugs and lower ceilings to give the places warmer ambience and then we wouldn't have to yell at each other while having a conversation.

Another fabulous dinner!
Silo is a 'go-to' place in Baltimore. Feels like you're in a very different city -- great escape. Cocktails, food, service (Nicki), wine and desserts were terrific!

One of the best places in Baltimore for a great relaxing evening.

I'm a regular!
I love this place. Everything. The food and wine selection is great, and happy hour is really affordable. Never is too crowded, which might be bad for the restaurant, however, it's kind of in a strange area. I would recommend to anyone since the food here is pretty awesome. It changes from time to time, I believe. This past time, our server was amazing! 5 stars for her :)

Very nice evening
went with another couple. 2 of us ate off the regular menu and 2 off the prix fixe. Everything was very good. Most items have a different take on a dish than the ordinary which was fun. venison jerky was good but didn't need the chutney, for instance.
Enjoyed a couple of bottles of wine. Not rushed at all. Very enjoyable.

If you are like me and are always on the look out for new and upcoming places in the Baltimore area, this place is for you! My girlfriend and I went here to celebrate her birthday and were not disappointed. The drinks were spot on and the service was top notch! I will be going back for sure and i will make a point to keep it in the rotation of regular places I visit.

Restaurant Week 2013
Overall, Silo was amazing. The staff was really friendly and accommodating and even gave us free shots! They were delicious.
The food itself was excellent except my choice in dessert. I started off with the clams and they were amazing. I definitely recommend this dish. For my main course i ordered the rabbit. I wanted to try something i wouldn't normally order and it was very delicious. I also tried a piece of my friends NY steak and it was excellent as well. My only food critique would be the Key Lime pie. It was horrible. It was so tart that it didn't even taste like actual key lime pie. I am personally a key lime pie fanatic so this was disappointing.
I definitely plan on going back. Especially for their happy hour specials!

This was my first time dining
This was my first time dining at Sil0 .5% and our experience well surpassed our expectations. There were several levels of waitstaff ensuring that you glass was always filled and that you were having a great dining experience. The view of the harbor is very good from the second floor while the first floor has a fun, hip bar feel. The food was great and I am still thinking about the New York Strip Steak that was enjoyed. Might be the best I ever had. I have recounted my dining experience to several Federal Hill friends and expect they will try out the place soon.

Baltimore Restaurant Week
Started at the bar waiting on our table. Our bartender was very nice. She also transferred our bar tab right to our table when it was ready, keeping it very simple. Ordered from the Pre Fixe Dinner Menu. The clams were decent. The twice baked potatoes were really good. The server forgot to get a steak knife for the entree...No big deal though because you could cut the steaks with a butter knife! The sorbet was decent, but I wouldn't travel back there for it (or the clams). I will, however, return for the steak, the wine and beer list, and the overall atmosphere.

Best staff in town...
We came in for restaurant week to try out the menu at a great deal. The hostess was warm, friendly, helpful and polite. The floor manager was as well. The staff were all pleasant, engaging, funny and cordial which makes, for me, the dining experience great.
But the star of the night was the bartender, Dan. He concocted some of the best drinks I've ever had. He is truly an excellent bartender who takes pride in his craft. Every drink was sensational and crafted to perfection. Not only that, but he was friendly, funny and very personable despite how busy he was. I can't wait to come back in and try more! Thanks for the great experience and props to your excellent staff!

Check out this gem in Locust Point!
Personable staff, food that is impressive, modern atmosphere and high tech compliments to their Nook menu app. My friends and I were happy to discover this cool restaurant on a Thursday. We loved the Prix Fix menu. We each had something different for the courses, all amazing. And our wine was delicious. Three very happy ladies!
Did you know? It's a popular Grouper date night spot --and the staff is engaged enough to help with that process, they have code words and are full of encouragement.

The setting has great potential, but Locust Point in 2013 hasn't quite come into its own as a destination. Silo .5% Wine bar is a pioneer, and well worth a visit. The food was very tasty despite minor flaws (the eggplant in the vegetable tower could have been marinated and more succulent; the pasta under the outstanding halibut had a little too much garlic), but the scallop appetizer and the cocktails were excellent and the wait staff very good. We'll be back from time to time: As the neighborhood develops, so will the food

Overall...good food, service, and ambiance in a new (refurbished) neighborhood in Baltimore. Will definitively recommend it to my friends.

Great food, as usual
We eat here once a month and have never been disappointed. The food is interesting and well prepared. Staff is always cordial and efficient.

Always a pleasure
This is my 4th time here, the food is always good, drinks have been made to personal taste without flaw and service is always top notch. The owner or manager is always very friendly and greets you with a warm smile. We have a favorite server who just seems to go a little above and beyond everyone else...that being said, every person we have made contact with there has been very friendly and helpful.

I great place to hang
I love the atmosphere AND the food. A little off the beaten path but well worth it. Strongly recommend this as a great place for evening or brunch! Both the thin crust veggie or the bbq chicken pizza are GREAT lite fair!!
