Great but menu lacks adventure
I'm a true foodie- I had the special 'red snapper'- my date had the filet medallions which I sampled. They have all the expected dishes and some surprises but nothing truly adventurous so not the best hot spot for foodies but still a classy place.

Although it just opened, they
Although it just opened, they have the experience of running a great restaurant in Dupont Circle so they aren't suffering the complications of a newly opened restaurant. They are very thoughtful about their food and don't use wheat flour as a thickener so many of their meals are already gluten free or can easily be made gluten free. Our waiter was friendly and professional and the manager made a point to come by to see how we were doing and carefully answer our questions.

The Scion was a great fine
The Scion was a great fine for us in Silver Spring. We love the food particularly the fried pickles and beer selections. Plus, our server was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and made "spot-on" recommendations.

No need to go anywhere else now
I work across the street and am sooo excited this opened up here. Thank you Scion!! Arugula and grapefruit salad with scallops helps the work day go down! In addition to the fabulous happy hour.

My husband and I went there
My husband and I went there the other night to celebrate his birthday. The food was great, especially the deep fried pickles, and the service was great also. They gave us a free chocolate lava cake for dessert for my husbands birthday. We were there on a weeknight and they were not very busy so the waitstaff was very attentive to us, and they actually let us choose our own table when we got there. We will definitely go back there for dinner and hopefully brunch someday too!

I really like this place and
I really like this place and appreciate that they've taken the risk of opening up shop in a residential area in Silver Spring, which happens to be very convenient location for me, and I suspect lots of other area residents. It's a small place, but it's nicely designed, and, most importantly, I've been there twice now and both times the food was really good.
My one complaint is that though the wait stuff is both nice and very knowledgeable about the menu selections (something I always appreciate!), they seem to be overstretched. Not the end of the world, but it might take you a while to pay your bill with a credit card..
I overheard a server saying that they do brunch, and I will definitely be checking this out in the near future.

Gluten Free options in S.S.!
We were so excited to find a restaurant in Silver Spring with yummy gluten free options! The food was very yummy and we are looking forward to returning to try more dishes on the menu.

Showed up for first time at this restaurant not knowing it was 1/2 price burger night -- Tuesdays! We all went with it -- two of us not even really meat eaters but seemed to be the thing to do. YUM YUM. Meat eater proclaimed it one of best ever. Good condiments and fries. Just missed happy hour or would have been even a crazier cheap dinner. Can't judge other food but some of it coming out of kitchen looked pretty good. Pretty casual place, simple decor, but nice lively atmosphere.

I was looking for a new place I hadn't been to in Silver Spring because my parents were in town. They absolutely loved the food - everything was fresh, delicious and affordable. The menu was very creative, there is something for everyone, including vegetarian and gluten free items! We'll definitely be back!

Welcome addition to the neighborhoo
We went for brunch. The bloody mary was spicy with a hint of cucumber and I really liked it. The steak and eggs were well done but I most enjoyed the potatoes. The service was good in spite of them being short staffed. Most stayed after eating just to talk so like us, we felt very comfortable. I live very close so I am glad they are here! We will back to check out happy hour.

This was our first time here.
This was our first time here. I wish we had discovered this place sooner. Our food was excellent. I loved the decor. My husband loved the beer. It is a bit oddly located, so I hope it doesn't close anytime soon.
