    Had a Sunday brunch/lunch reservation, and was seated in a small, windowless side dining room. Seeing many open tables in the bright, airy main seating area, I asked the hostess if we could move to one of the open tables. She said she would check (very pleasantly), and returned saying she would be happy to move us. The service was great- the timing was good and not rushed. Our drinks came out quickly, and the cinnamon roll we ordered to share (for 3 people) arrived warm and yummy. Definitely big enough for 2 to share, and fine for each of us to have a few very tasty bites. Our 3 entrees (Shrimp and Grits, Brioche French Toast, and the Silo Skillet) were all really good (not quite amazing). I would be happy to return.

    Was glad to have a reservation on a busy Nashville weekend. Surprised the restaurant wasn't busier as we were there @11am but enjoyed having a calm atmosphere for a Sunday brunch so we could enjoy conversation. Started with the devil eggs which were delicious. Brioche French toast topped with apple bits that were perfectly tender. Croque madam also enjoyed by two if us. Service was pleasant and attentive.

    Loved this restaurant. Reservation was taken on time. A bit noisy but our table was off the main room which helped with the noise. Service and server were outstanding. Was knowledgeable about the entire menu and explained each item as 'savory' as can be. We had the deviled eggs, ribs and heirloom tomato salad for apps. Loved them all. Entrees were the pork chop and grouper. Also both delicious. Mac and cheese side is a must. Only disappointment was the corn bread.

    First time to visit but came with my wife who had been before with her birthday group. She raved about the food and service but it was even more than I expected it to be. Food was over the top, service was wonderful and all in all, SILO is a restaurant that I would recommend to anyone wanting a superb dining experience in Nashville.

    Love eating at Silo. The food never disappoints. Tried the spare ribs to start which were flavorful and tender My husband loved the kimchi accompanying it. We had the hot chicken and the red grouper. Both were delicious. Chicken was nicely spicy and so juicy and tender. The grouper was cooked well and the succotash over the creamed corn was delightful!

    We had the most fun evening at Silo. Our waitress Megan was the absolute best. We felt we had known her forever. Both of our first courses the Bone Marrow and Chicken Liver Mousse were divine. Although the taste was great, the Shrimp and Grits were even too hot for this Louisiana girl. The deserts especially the Pot d' Creme was huge and excellent. We definitely will return.

    Being from NJ what a great find on our first trip to Nashville. I really value the reviews on Open Table and from the time we walked into the restaurant. Germantown is a great up and coming area. TONY from NJ what a great bartender and enjoyed chatting with him, even the people at the bar were soooooooo friendly. Brunch was absolutely fantastic, from the eggs, to the potatoes, to the biscuits and the best Blood Mary in Nashville. Thank you for a great dining experience.

    Had an excellent cocktail, followed by a very good meal and even dessert, which was wonderful as well. Cool vibe in the place and the server could not have been nicer. Really interesting drinks and some unusual food pairings, but they worked. Plus, Germantown is awesome all by itself!

    Enjoyable place to have dinner with an upbeat, happy vibe, probably because of the people working there. All the staff are happy and friendly; they pitch in to help the other with serving the diners, etc. This was a celebration of our 45th wedding anniversary, and every year we each have a champagne cocktail. The champagne cocktail here was probably the best so far, and we've tried at least 45 of them (!). Great heirloom tomato salads, entrees were hot chicken and shrimp & grits, had a couple of desserts (fresh peaches & blackberries on pound cake with peach sorbet, and pot de creme), all were very tasty with great presentation. The menu changes periodically, so we are looking forward to returning to see what else they come up with!

    What a fabulous dining experience. The atmosphere is warm but sleek, staff friendly, funny and just the right degree of attentive, and then there is the food! I am vegetarian and my husband and sons are not. From drinks to appetizers to entrees (we were too full for dessert but will have to return) the food was fresh, flavorful and oh so good. Best meal we've had in a very very long time...certainly our favorite in Nashville.

    We went for our anniversary dinner. It was delightful. They have an interesting cocktail menu and a friendly bartender. I have been wanting to try a drink made with an aperitif and the Pimms tea was very refreshing. The food was superb. My husband loves the deviled eggs and the shrimp and grits. They will let you get a half order of the sides, which are large and family style, if there are only two people. The deserts are incredible. The pot d'creme comes with caramel bacon popcorn. I don't like cracker jack but I loved this, must be the bacon! They even gave us a glass of champagne with our desert since it was our anniversary.

    We recently returned to Silo with a friend visiting from NYC. She was amazed at the quality of the food/drinks, the warmth of the wait staff and the beauty of the space itself. We devoured the deviled eggs, pate, grouper, steak, burger, and shrimp & grits - each dish was a stand-out. The desserts - chocolate mousse, caramel pot de creme w/ bacon popcorn, and peach/blackberry poundcake were outstanding, as well. And the best part beyond the food is that you can actually hear the conversation at your table - even on a bustling evening. So many reasons to be Silo regulars & glad to be in good company!

    This was our first visit to Silo and it will not be the last. We were greeted with smiling faces and pleasant attitude from the hostess. The service was outstanding, attentive and friendly. We started with deviled eggs appetizer which was prepared 3 ways, yummy. I ordered the Shrimp n Grits which was great. This dish has a little spice to it but I enjoy spicy foods. My husband ordered the Hot Chicken. Now, that Hot Chicken was HOT but we are spicy food lovers so it was fine for us. We also ordered a Mac n Cheese side dish. More than enough food for 2 people and we ended up taking the leftovers home and there was enough to have as our side dish at home the next day. We did not have room for dessert but I will make room next time.

    Our plans changed and we arrived early for our reservation. We sat at the bar and enjoyed happy hour drinks but were seated early because the table was open. I started out with a gaspacho with crab salad which was delicious and had a combo of good for me vegetarian fare with a side of delectable mac and cheese. My husband went a different route with Bear Creek cheese burger and fries and a side of collard greens. The food was amazing. He was a little concerned because they did not have a traditional salad. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgable and very laid back. This was my second time at Silo but the first with my husband. I went with a group of girls friends a few months ago and both experiences were great.

    I've been to silo before for brunch, and I actually enjoyed that menu a bit more. But, per usual, everything we tasted at dinner, be it food or drink, was fabulous. The hot chicken is hit or miss depending on personal taste, so be wary - it's not the real Nashville standard - but spicy people still love it. An early dinner is a great way to get there when the restaurant is a little quieter. It's a small space, so noise level really ramps up when it is full.

    After planning ahead for a Sunday brunch we hoped would be memorable, we got what we asked for but not in a good way. The server was less than attentive to our order, blaming the bartender for our lack of drinks after blood marys were delivered that could only be described as bland with no taste whatsoever. The food was tasty but not extraordinary. Definitely a disappointment. Should have dined across the street where folks looked satisfied as they left. Will not be back.

    The atmosphere is the seller. Nothing to write home about. I was getting brunch when it opened at 10:30 and the host sat the 4 parties waiting right next to each other. This place seems to draw a unique crowd of rich hoshposh twenty something's that give me looks as if I'm undeserving to be there. The food was a level above Denny's. The pricing was ridiculous. In summation if you're looking to impress a bunch of your trust fund sucking, hoshposh hipsters who have never been to a walmart, take them here. Otherwise, go across the street to Germantown Cafe which is marginally better on all levels. Or, go to Husk for a real nice Sunday brunch.

    Without any major changes, Silo could have a great thing going. In each of our dishes, which were good, there was something left to be desired. For instance, my pork chop, while moist and cooked perfectly, was under seasoned. Being what I assume is a pork chop from us foods or sysco, the seasoning was needed big time. Another example: my dessert was the honey pound cake, which was delicious, but was garnished with a sprinkle of micro greens. I tried to eat them with my cream and cake with berries and peaches, but alas, I found the texture off-putting. The silky cream and moist cake deserve better than to be sprinkled with a garnish that doesn't do anything for the dish. Overall, the meal was good. Good, but not great.
