    Overall excellent. Great for a group or a date. Would suggest making reservations on weekends because you could be waiting if you just walk-in. Service was excellent as well. Attentive but not overbearing.

    We have known about Silos for a long while, we just never thought about trying it. Recently it was recommended for us to try it to celebrate an occasion. We loved the food, the staff was extremely nice, probably could've been sat at a better area, but that is a minor thing in all of the great things at Silos. We definitely plan on going agaim very soon.

    There is a sports bar beneath the restaurant and they had a football game playing and there was a lot of hollering and cheering going on which really takes away from the ambiance of the restaurant. It was very hard at times to have a conversation with our guests across the table.

    First of all, I am glad we made OpenTable reservations because the restaurant had to turn away people who hadn't planned ahead. The chicken fried oysters were to die for appetizers - I wish I'd ordered more for my main course. The crab cakes were superb. Our waiter was very attentive. This is a great place for a special occasion.

    I have not dined at Silo more than 3 times but each time has been remarkable and the food outstanding as well as the service. I really appreciated out server because she saw to our every need but did not constantly interrupt conversation constantly. It was my Mothers Birthday and they really took good care of us from the bartenders who were quite friendly even though we were not drinking except ice tea, and the upstairs service was exceptional. The only problem that I ever face here is what to choose from all the delicious options on the menu.

    Everything about the food, service, atmosphere, etc. was excellent! 5 stars across the board in those categories. However...my husband and I dined in celebration of our wedding anniversary. We made this a special occasion for us. While I was in a dress and he in a dress shirt and tie, it was very disappointing to see a couple come in to dine wearing flip flops, running short and old T-shirts. I'd like to see a dress code enforced - while I'm not saying a suit and tie is required, I think shorts and flip flops should be turned away. This isn't a beach restaurant. And for the gourmet, fine dining experience I would expect to see other patrons appreciate it and respect it as much as we do.

    I just love silo, the service is great! Even though its a bit to quiet its a very calm romantic atmosphere. The food is the best part though. I always have the spinach salad, the fried bri goes great with the dried apricots. Over all its always a great experience.

    This restaurant's strong suit is it's superb food! All four folks our party felt each course was delicious and attractively presented. Kudos go especially to the Crab Cake & Shrimp entrée -- and this comment comes from a Marylander who has specific ideas of what a crab cake should be. This crab cake was jumbo lump meat with very little filling and just the right spices and outside fried texture. I couldn't do that crab cake better my self --- and I pride myself as a foodie cook on my specialty crab cakes. Best crab cake in Texas! Desserts were another special highlight. I highly recommend Silo for a delicious dining experience!

    The look and feel is still the same as before and the service is very good, however, the food is only mediocre now and not the great cuisine Silo once provided. The menu is basically the same as it has been for years, just not prepared as well...maybe a new chef is in order.

  • Sea Bass and Duck

    Dined on 9/29/2014
    Silo always makes us as if they're glad to see us, and the food and service never disappoint. The sea bass was perfect and the five-spice duck was moist and tender. My only regret was the imperfect choice of wine for the duck; pouilly fumé was not the right choice. Our waitress, Amanda, was delightful and her memory for the evening's specials was most impressive. Love this place—and the fact that it's a five minute drive from our home.

    Having eaten here a few times before, our experience was always pleasing. However this time the waitress did not offer us anything to drink. We had to ask. We were a party of 6. 4 of us were on one check and using a promotionial coupon. The other 2 were on a separate check and also wanted to use a coupon but were told only 1 coupon per table. They could have easily got up and moved to another table but didn't want to be rude. If they were on a totally separate check they should have been able to use the coupon. The 1 per table rule is ridiculous. Also, the scallops that one person ordered were undercooked and she ended up ill the next day. Normally Silo is a great place to eat but they need to work on a few things.

    Last minute reservation while on trip to San Antonio. Specialty drinks disappointing as was wine by the glass. Salmon was delicious. Wife had vegi risotto and liked it as well. Skip the dessert - nothing special there. We split the coconut pie and it was average. Service was friendly & efficient.

    We went there for Sunday brunch. If you expect common brunch fare, this is not the place to go. Their menu is eclectic with an upscale twist, but the prices are reasonable. We ordered shrimp and grits and French toast. Food and service were outstanding. They also offer a prix fixe option. You get several courses for a very good price.

    As a repeat customer I found the service, cleanliness, overall visit very good. Usually the food is excellent. On this occasion I ordered the lamb, which was one of the off menu entrees. I found the lamb to be a bit "chewy". This is very unusual for Silo and will not deter me from returning. All the soups, sides, desserts very the usual excellent quality. My wife's entree was excellent.

    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!
