    My husband and I have been in food service for the better part of out lives and consider it an interest and hobby. We ordered the tuna and tenderloin and although it was fresh and cooked adequately and certainly came promptly it tasted like food we make at home but not as good. We were disappointed because we thought at those prices we felt we should have been a little wowed. To make it worse the tenderloin came with no mushroom and we had to ask for them which shows a lack of attention to detail on the part of the cook and server. The server was friendly and helpful in ordering and very nice when we asked him to go back to the kitchen.

    The food was outstanding! Everything was cooked to perfection! I had the Grilled Shrimp and Crab Cake Dinner with Angel Hair Pasta, my bf had the Lamb dinner. We shared the fried oyster appetizer and a bottle of Moscato. There was complimentary bread served as well. The portions were adequate, not large but just enough. The atmosphere was nice, the service was great-the servers were very fast and efficient. The cuisine is up there in price; Our bill came to $117 before gratuity, but I did get a $20 coupon by getting on their email list when I made my reservation online. I will definately go again!

    We've dined at Silo on Austin Hwy several times and always love the experience. This time was dinner for two. Redfish was cooked perfectly, as was the pork shank. We enjoyed the salted carmel gelato as well. The restaurant is always adequately staffed to ensure attention to detail. Well worth a visit.

    Dined on 8/26/2014
    Silo on Austiin Hwy reminds me of an intimate, very upscale New York restaurant without the outrageous price! It is, by far, my favorite restaurant in SA. I take clients there frequently for both lunch and dinner. We are able to visit without having to raise our voices. I never feel rushed, I can always get in, and it it the perfect place to wow a client with the service, flavors, atmosphere, variety, wine list........I could go on and on! My husband and I also love to go alone for the perfect romantic dinner and my lady friends and I love to go for "girls night out". I also love the open kitchen effect at the rear of the restaurant. Also, if you are looking for the perfect gift certificate, this is the place to buy one!

    Dined on 8/24/2014
    First, there is NO ambience here. It is just dark. The waiter was nice and tried to be helpful, but was weak on wine suggestions...maybe not his fault, as the wine menu was limited compared to what I'm used to at a high end restaurant. The Texas Ruby Red bar drink made up for it! The food was elegantly presented, and I could tell it was not made by a novice. At the same time, much of it was bland. The lamb was not tender and was tasteless. The "famous" chicken fried oysters were mostly coating and very small.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    Prior to arriving for our reservation we took the time to review Silo's online menu and selected the entrees we would be ordering; chilean sea bass w. soba noodles & prime centercut ribeye w. potato gratin. Unfortunately neither of the entrees we selected from the online menu was available in-house. Our waitstaff informed us one selection was no longer offered due to low demand and the other was only available at the 1604 location. We were left to scramble for two other entree selections, neither of which appealed to us as much as the entrees we'd selected online. We left full, but disappointed.

    Culinary offering the best! Wonderful wine list. Ambiance warm and nice. Dined at this location twice, the wait service and host / front end service are consistently sub-par. Their customer service and wait service needs more training or better selection of personnel. Unfortunately, our last dining experience ended up with a server whose actions and communication style was subpar or unacceptable at a fine dining restaurant. Our group did not stay for dessert because of the service.

    Silo is consistently wonderful. The food was great. We had the iconic fried oyster salad, the seared tuna appetizer, the foie gras, all great. For entrees we had, among other things, the duck (spectacular), crab cake, scallops and Kurobuta pork shank. Everthing was tasty and cooked perfectly. The only complaint was that the orzo, while described as orzo "mac and cheese" didn't really resemble mac and cheese, but was good nevertheless. All in all a delightful evening.

    The service was extremely poor. I was not offered anything to drink after I said I did not want wine. The waiter did not aford me time to order a salad as he quickly left the table with my entre order. Sea Bass was drastically under cooked, but hot when served. Eggplant and cauliflower beneith was stone cold. Waiter never returned to table until I stood up to leave, at that point he came to the table to give me my bill.

    Had reservations at 7:30pm on Saturday night...VERY busy, but that's a good thing! Food was phenomenal and the service was good (not great)...I have been to both of the Silo's (1604 and Alamo Heights) in the past month, the food is fabulous at both locations, but for the ambiance, view and service I HIGHLY recommend the 1604 location.

    We are new to San Antonio, and decided to try Silo on the recommendation of friends. This is definitely going to be one of our favorites! The service was great, our server was knowledgable and helpful with suggestions. To start, we tried the signature appetizer, the chicken fried oysters. They were fantastic. You can also order it as an entree, which I might do next time! For entrees, I chose the scallops, while my husband got the red fish, which was a special for that evening. Both entrees were delicious. It was hard to decide what to get, as everything on the menu sounded great. There is something for everyone on this menu. For dessert, we split the belgian chocolate mousse, which was the perfect ending for the perfect meal!

    Lovely meal at Silo's. The free valet parking (tip the valet) came in handy since i'm disabled. My confusion with the restaurant is the dress code. At a 7:00 pm seating i saw folks in short pants, jeans, and women in flip flops. That might be ok for lunch, but in my opinion the dinner seating should have a much stricter dress code.

    As always, the waite staff was outstanding. The food has been tweeked just slightly and the adjustments were excellent. The scallops were as good or better than any available in the city. The pear & sautern sorbet was perfection. The new source for their frozen deserts sets this offerring apart from those appearing at many other restaurants.

    My husband and I ate here for his birthday. I had never been there before and it was incredible! The atmosphere was perfect. We ordered the special, which was a ribeye, chipotle mashed potatoes and asparagus. It was probably the best food I've ever eaten. Unfortunately, for some reason, they don't have this on the menu, so it is a limited time offer. We also ordered crab cakes. While it was very good, you only get one crab cake for $16. Overall, we loved this place! I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a very special dining experience who doesn't mind the cost.

    Delicious food and great service made for a lovely lunch at Silo. Special thanks to Chef Luca and the kitchen staff for their willingness to accomodate my son's food allergies by creating an allergy-friendly item and to the management for communicating our special request to our server,Josh. We felt so relaxed knowing that our son could enjoy his food because of the conscientious attention that was given to his dietary restrictions. Josh gave professional,friendly and efficient service. I'm grateful that he encouraged me to order the fish special. In a word,YUM! My husband, son and our friend also thoroughly enjoyed their meals (we helped the dishwasher by not leaving a morsel of food on any of our plates!). I highly recommend Silo!
