Diner Reviews
  • "Wonderful experience! Looooooved the food and service (Lucas was great!). Will definitely be back!"

  • "I found Scion through Open Table, looking for a Saturday night reservation. Scion's reviews were all positive and a quick look at the menu confirmed our decision. We had a great time - our server was friendly and attentive without hovering, gave suggestions for beer, wine, and food, and was knowledgeable about the menu. The food was delicious - we got the Honey Glazed Brie and the crab dip, both of which were phenomenal. My husband and I both tried the LBJ Mac and Cheese, and have found a new favorite - though next time I think we'll share. That was a huge serving! Overall very pleased with the experience, and looking forward to going again!"

  • "There were six of us on a Saturday night. Service was perfect - warm, friendly and honest. Better yet, the food was terrific. We ordered the glazed brie, fried pickles and spinach dip to start. All were really good. I usually find a spinach tip too heavy for my taste, but this one was rich without being gloopy. The brie was satisfying and tasty. My party ordered the salmon, steak au poivre with mushrooms, lobster, bacon and jalapeno mac and cheese. All were uniformly delicious. Definitely will be back. Probably my new favorite in Silver Spring."

  • "Scallops and risotto were very good. The Caesar--not so much. The servers were friendly and attentive. "

  • "Scion was good, but not great. Food was definitely good, but again, nothing special. Service was friendly, but a little slow. We made last-minure reservations and were given a table away from others, which was great. Would go again, but isn't necessarily a top choice."

  • "We decided to leave our area and travel to Silver Springs Scion because it was written up as a great new place. Our server was distracted at best. First she never brought a kids menu as asked. The food too forever to come and when it did I was given the wrong meal. The server had entered my dinner selection into the computer incorrectly. She offered to have the correct meal made but my family finished their meals before mine ever came. On a positive note the food was good once it was delivered."

  • "For the price of steak and eggs I wiil have thought the rib eye steak a better size. It looked like it had been cut in half. Look more like skirt steak While there a painting group came to set up. Felt rushed"

  • "I have been here several times. The food has always been very good, very consistent. The service is the hardest to predict. Our most recent visit was for Mother's Day. The staff was clearly ready for the day and the crowds that it brings and yet somehow our table felt neglected. We were not very demanding (two waters, 1 iced tea, 1 appetizer, 3 brunch entrees) and yet the drinks took a long time and the appetizer as well. Everything tasted great and I will certainly be back. I just wish the service could be improved just a bit. The noise is always fine, you can hear the people at your table speak. They beer and wine lists are terrific and the menu is interesting. I recommend, just hope you have better service!"

  • "My husband and I had dinner at Scion this past Saturday. We had a wonderful meal. Started with "Second City River Water" cocktails. This may be our new summer drink! Vodka, lime, cucumber and cilantro - extremely refreshing. And scallops on white beans. The white beans were billed as spicy, but at first seemed a little sweet; the spice followed, but pretty mild. Husband had the crabcakes which were delish, and I had the duck pasta. Not really a warm weather dish, but I'd read someone else's rave review, and had to try it. Glad I did; it's a great dish. Ended with a piece of key lime pie in a toasted coconut crust. A perfect sweet ending to a great meal. We'll be back! Ambiance very nice; service friendly; manager came by to check on us. A+"

  • "Excellent vibe and very friendly/accommodating staff. Highly recommend this place to all my friends."

  • "The first time we tried to go Scion was closed for a private event. We went back a few days ago and are glad we gave it another try. They have a nice beer and wine menu from which to choose. Happy hour prices are a great deal. My duck ragu was outstanding. My husband's risotto was good enough that he'd have it again, but he agreed my meal was stellar. Our waitress was friendly, helpful, happy, and knowledgable. No complaints - definitely worth the short walk from our apartment."

  • "Having driven past it literally a hundred times, we finally dined at Scion. Parking is challenging; this section of the street is not zoned for entertainment, but it is worth the extra few hundred feet for a parking spot to stop in for dinner. The food is not extraordinary, but was very well prepared, and the menu had a number of varied selections. We will definitely return again; a neighborhood gem."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "My only real complaint is that the server initially forgot to enter my order so it took my entree a little long to arrive. However, as soon as she realized her mistake, she alerted a manager who ensured my food came out as quickly as possible. It wasn't a huge deal because I was hanging out with an old friend and we were in no rush, but for someone else that could have been quite the imposition. Food was yummy and both happy hour wines are well worth the 5 bucks a glass. Would return in a heart beat."

  • "I had the LBJ Mac & Cheese. Service was really fast. It was not crowded when we were there but definitely seems like a place that will be hard to get a reservation at in the future."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I had a great time at Scion. Great beer list(even though two kegs had kicked), good food (the garlic herb fries were great). I would go back sometime later in the summer."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Familiar with the Dupont Circle Scion, this Silver Spring setting - though much less hectic with better parking options - was a disappointment. Apparently, brunch is a new thing for them. There is no table of cut fruit and other goodies, yet. So everything is strictly off the menu. Initial server seemed to have been given an apron that day (didn't know the menu). Second server was charming but our order got mixed up. When my omelette finally arrived it was great. The brie appetizer was skimpy for two and not particularly tasty. So: they have a long way to go to measure up to Dupont Circle. Keep trying... fast."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "The food was good and the atmosphere was relaxed. It was a nice find on a busy Saturday night when we didn't want to wait more than an hour."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We went on a Saturday night. They were not crowded. Most of the food was delicious. The croquette appetizer wasn't that great. However, the burger and the risotto were delicious! I think the place was missing a bit of charm though, but otherwise enjoyable experience."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "This was my second trip to Scion. The first visit was for dinner, which was excellent! The salmon was perfectly cooked and the potatoes & grilled broccoli were delish. Went back for lunch with fingers crossed and was not disappointed. It was an early lunch that lasted well past the lunch hour. Our server was cordial; and we weren't rushed out of the place even when everyone else was gone. The portbello panini was exquisite. Great selection of beers and single malt scotch. Great service & really comfortable place. SO happy we found this hidden gem."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Everyone at our table was delighted with the delicious brunch entrees. Two diners went with the Lobster Hash, which came highly recommended by a friend, and they were not disappointed. The build your own omelette was nicely prepared (with several interesting meat and vegetarian filling options) and complemented by yummy thin-cut fried potatoes. Fair warning: if you get the french toast with sliced bananas, you may have others trying to snag a bite from your plate! Only challenge at this time is parking. The private garage behind the building was not open at 10 am on Sun, and the manager said the attendant there keeps a spotty schedule. A garage across the street (by NOAA) may be an option. Do check ahead what's open weekday vs. weekend."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Went on a Sunday night and was happy it was not crowded at all. The food was definitely delicious. They were short staffed but the bartender who doubled as our waiter was knowledgeable and alert. Not a small feat because the bar was overflowing and busy."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "We went to Scion for a business lunch. The staff was friendly and easily accomodated our group of 9, even bringing out a second waitor to take our orders. The food was good. Didn't rush us out. Overall great experience."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "The food was very good, nice size portions, good value. The bartender was concerned that the beer my friend ordered was a bit off that night so the server brought it and a taste of an alternative. Never seen that done before!! Was glad we were early enough for happy hour since wines are a bit pricey, especially given somewhat small pours. Disappointing dessert selection, but we were pretty full anyway. Will definitely go back."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "The rockfish shrimp is wonderful and so is the strawberry shortcake. Mixed drink specials are fun and we've been several times, the service is always good."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We went to Scion for Brunch. The menu selection was awesome. It was hard to decide what to get. The portions were just right. Our party had the crab cakes benedict, which were amazing, the lobster reuben, which was equally delicious and two really yummy omlettes. The servers and staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. It was a great experience. Other than the fact that parking isn't that abundant, I will definitely return!"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Scion has a great new location in Silver Spring. They had a great Saturday brunch, which is hard to find in this area. Overall, the food was tasty, appealed to a large group (including young diners), and affordable. Their pitchers of mimosas were a hit!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "This was our second visit which featured a "Tap Takeover" from the Flying Dog brewery of Frederick. Excellent selection of draft beers and dinner specials confirmed our earlier conclusion that Scion knows how to please a wide range of tastes: from the hard-core beer drinker/burger eater to the teetotaler vegetarian. Well done!"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "My family and I chose Scion (Silver Spring) because I've enjoyed their bar before. They're menu isn't big on brunch like meals, but it gets the job done. The service was excellent even after half of the party was delayed an hour and there was a chip in the beer cup. Food was great (as always) and my parents enjoyed the craft beer."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Scion is a nice addition to Silver Spring. It is a casual restaurant with good food. I requested a private area to sit in because I was meeting with a friend to discuss business and Scion was very accommodating. The owner came over to the table to make sure we were satisfied with everything. I will go back."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "Food is amazing. Went for Valentines and other occasions. Only critique would be - for such a high level of good taste - wait staff could look a lil more "neat" - not feeling the jeans look - and a couple pictures on the wall would be a lil more warming. However, if food is your main objective...cant go wrong. Everything I've ever ordered is great!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "There seemed to be a number of discrepancies and little accommodation or understanding. The website had advertised a happy hour of 1/2 priced drafts on Sunday, but when we inquired, they said it wasn't on the website. It turned out they had just taken it down, but there was no apology. Also, on the beer menu it says that a full is 12 oz for the beers we ordered, but when the beer was served it was in a small snifter (maybe 6 oz.). This is a rather deceptive practice."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "The only thing that was really lacking about the restaurant was the service. However this was not the fault of the servers, when the servers were able to make it to our table they were very courteous and responded to requests promptly. What I did notice was that there were 2 servers for the entire 20+ table seating floor. It seems the management is trying to save a few bucks on servers by keeping the minimum on shift."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The restaurant is dominated by an extremely noisy bar. The food is just ok. We tried the chicken yogurt and steak frites and both were just OK - nothing to rave about. The wine selection is adequate but prices are rather high for poor quality wines."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This is a great place for a neighborhood hang out. We had fun. It is a bit noisy. Nice beer list."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Great neighborhood gem with nice atmosphere, incredibly friendly staff, efficient kitchen with outstanding creativity in food and presentation, yet extremely reasonable prices. Great soups, burgers, and small plates. Becoming increasingly popular with NOAA, FAA staffers for lunch. Nice bar area with fireplace. Unfortunately it is easily overlooked as it is not very visible from street in its location in a residential apartment building."

  • "Great food. Great service. Great neighborhood restaurant."

  • "So few little local places with a good bar and good food, but this is one of them. It is a must go!"
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "Love this place. I wish that we could park a bit closer. I've been here twice and my food was excellent both times."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The spicy yogurt chicken, although a dubious title for a dish, was delicious! I would go there again just for that. The waiter was outstanding! The bartender made us custom coctails, good thing too as the ones on the official menu were just ok. Ambience is better in the bar area, with the main restaurant seeming sparce. Ask for a booth when you go. Definitely recommended, I would go again. Average prices, three dinners, appetizers and drinks for around $100."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Our appetizer and entrees arrived promptly and were yummy, and I wasn't especially bothered by a level of noise that would likely appeal more to younger customers. The problem came at the end of the meal, when we were suddenly presented with the bill without having been offered the desert menu. We waited for a long time before getting a chance to ask for the desert menu, and when it arrived found that it was quite short and had nothing we wanted. So I would recommend this restaurant only for those who aren't interested in lingering after finishing their entrees, with or without desert."
