    My husband and I finally got a night away from our 9 month old, and we decided to give Silo a try. We were not disappointed. I had the grouper which was very flaky and delicious. My husband tried the pork chop which he called "the best pork chop he had ever had". We also got the jalapeno cornbread which had a yummy pecan butter with it. Service was also great. The only thing I didn't think was excellent was the soup - it was good, but nothing special. Overall we really enjoyed our night out.

    Both my date and I were first timers at silo. Love the location and the building, inside and out. There is street parking and valet parking. Our waiter, Benjamin was perfect. He explained the menu and made great suggestions. The food was cooked very well. Overall it was great and I plan on returning soon.

    We took the server's recommendations for cocktails, an appetizer, and entree, and each was excellent. We cut out on our own to order some Brussels sprouts, which we also devoured. Stellar, non-obtrusive service and fantastically well-prepared food. Five stars.

    We arrived on time and were sat promptly by the host. The food was fabulous and the wine pairing was spot on. The deviled eggs were to die for, especially the one with the crispy olive. The pork chop was cooked perfect and went great with the wine. We thoroughly enjoyed dinning at this fun Germantown hotspot. We look forward to dining again at this restaurant.

    This was my first time dining here, after several friends raved about it. Silo did not disappoint! We started with the deviled eggs and crispy brussel sprouts which were both amazing and different. I had the pork chop, which was no less than an inch thick and cooked perfectly-moist, tender, with even the fat have the perfect crisp to it and taste. My friend had the chicken confit and was also pleased with her choice. The sauce that the chicken and vegetables was in was flavorful and the perfect addition. SAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT!! I had the apple-pumpkin tart, which was the perfect foray into fall and my friend ordered the pot de creme. Her dessert was fluffy heaven with cracker jack popcorn. From the cocktails to dessert, amazing.

    Once again, we have another amazing night at Silo. We couldn't find a babysitter for the evening, but the hostess was very accommodating. Our server was fantastic with amazing insight and knowledge of the menu and specials. We had the ribeye and the chicken confit with mac and cheese on the side. Everything was great. For dessert, we enjoyed the cheesecake. We are definitely coming back for another date night.

    Based on all the reviews I thought the food would be amazing! Newer have I been so dissapointed in food as I was here. We ordered the Brussels sprouts as an appetizer they weren't bad. My friend ordered the pork and I ordered the chicken confit along with Mac and cheese and the skillet cornbread. My friend said here pork had no flavor my chicken was bland, the Mac and cheese was bland as well no flavor and the skillet tasted very oily. The best part of our whole meal was dessert which was the pot de creme.

    We were looking for a restaurant that we have not been to before. We were celebrating my father's birthday before a night at the Symphony and wanted something special. We found it. From the beginning to the end our service staff was knowledgeable, fast and curteous. The staff effectively works as a team providing for your every need and the food is a culinary delight. I was a Bartender for a restaurant of this same caliber for 4+ years (in the service industry for 10+)and my wife was a Manager and Event coordinator for high end restaurant as well. We have enjoyed most of Nashville's finest restaurants over the past decade and agree that Silo is in contention for the top of the list. My parents we're also very impressed with the meal.

Some of the more notable items were the deviled eggs (outstanding) and the chicken confit. Desserts were absolutely some of the best I have had in a long time. Cant wait to go back.

    This was my first time dining at Silo. My mom and I went to dinner there to celebrate my birthday. We both ordered the bacon cheeseburger and we split the salad that is on the appetizer menu. I had a glass of red wine that was very good. The dessert was DELICIOUS- we ordered the pumpkin apple tarte. The service was great and the burger was the best burger I've had in a very long time. I really can't say enough about this place, I was very impressed. Also, our server, Emily, was very helpful, pleasant and cheerful. I will ask for her when we come back for sure! Thanks, Silo!

    This is farm to table dining with southern country influence. We had been to brunch here before and wanted to try dinner. No disappointment at Silo. We started off a t the bar with a wonderful drink named after the street the restaurant was located on. Then we were seated and ordered a shared salad the taste of fresh was undeniably. I then ordered the tomato crab cold soup and my husband had the confetti chicken plate. Both items were extraordinary. For sides my husband had mac and cheese and I had cornbread. Portions of the sides were so generous we boxed our leftovers up and enjoyed them with some chili for lunch the nest day. Silo was not disappointing and a real treat from star to finish. Love to go back.

    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.

    We had been to Silo before and really enjoyed it.We arrived on time, but were asked to wait at the bar.While we sat at the bar, other people were escorted to a table suitable for us, while we watched on.Eventually we were seated in a brightly lit private room with half of our party facing a wall.When we asked to be moved, we were told in a curt manner, that it was not possible and that a group booking took precedence over ours.We promptly left and our family celebration was sadly spent at home.Silo is becoming one of those Nashville restaurants that thinks they can treat customers any way they want because business is so good, but there will be a time when they might benefit from handling their customers correctly.We won't be back.

    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.

    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.
