The macaroni and cheese is fantastic! So are the collard greens. Be sure and get their hot sauce - it's house-made and is a perfect blend of sweet and spicy

 (Los Angeles)·Dined 4 days ago

Very cool, hip restaurant in Germantown but unfortunately me and my husband didn't enjoy the food as much as we hoped. The deviled eggs were awesome as many other reviewers had mentioned. They were probably the highlight of the night. We tried a bunch of appetizers - the lamb meatballs which were a little heavy on the feta and lacking seasoning followed by the smoked sausage and aged white cheddar meats and cheeses. The meat and cheese platter looked amazing and most of it was great but the sausage was very cold and just not that great. We then shared the fried quail which had a great breading & served on fantastic mashed potatoes but the quail was surprising tough so not very easy to eat. All in all the service and the atmosphere was great but we weren't as thrilled with the food.

We loved this place. The ambiance was wonderful. Well lit tables but focused light so the room seemed dark and intimate overall. Noise level was low and conversation was easy. The food was spectacular. Very interesting combinations and options. Try the ricotta appetizer and the shepherd's pie. Both super tasty and different. Someone put a lot of thought into the flavor pairings and it showed. We will definitely be back.

Almost all Dishes seemed over seasoned. Very Salty. All 5 guests thought the same thing on all the variety of dishes we ordered -$275 worth.. Gumbo seemed as if the roux was scorched. Waitress pleasant- But was absent a lot.

Unfortunately, I forgot our servers name but he was absolutely lovely! There was a minor mistake in order but honestly we didn't mind because he was so wonderful. He had great recommendations. We had the ricotta dumplings (a must), brussels salad, meatballs, truffle fries and brussels. Everything was delicious. My faves were definitely the dumplings and brussels salad. We ordered way too much but loved every bite and took some home.

Was our first time to Silo, birthday. Waitress was slow, tried several tapas they were standard more flavor I think was needed. Drinks was good. Will try Silo again but may sit at the bar instead of table seating. When you walkin that area was really congested with employees standing around talking..seemed more into each other than customers? On a scale of 1-10 I would give a 5..but certainly give a 2nd chance.

Never had fried quail until we ate at Silo and it was great. Shared the gumbo, steak skewer, and the ricotta dumplings which were insane. Their bourbon list is the best I've ever seen by far.

Silo was fair but nothing special.

I have noticed that restaurants that focus on getting their clientele to drink a lot salt their food a lot. The saltier the food, the more you drink. Everything was way over salted at Silo!

My husband and I ordered the large plat Blacked Trout, it was overcooked and was very dry. It had a couple of what looked like frozen lemon slices in the middle.

I would love to have another drink there but I would not recommend the food to anyone.

I used this open table app to do the reservation and it didn't work well at all. Cannot say enough bad things about the open table app. It slowed down my phone and shows me pop up advertisements even when the app is closed. Do not download open table app!

We have been to many restaurants over the years. Silo was incredible. From our incredible drinks to the exquisite appetizers(octopus melted in our mouths) to my filet that I was so delicious that there was not one bite left over for my husband. He had the fried quail and said it was the most amazing dinner he has had. Our pumpkin ice cream and snickerdoodle cookie topped the whole dinner off. Our waitress Miranda was knowledgeable and friendly and the owner Clay came over and chatted with us. Friendly and so proud of what he has done here. We told him it was the most amazing dinner we have had in years...
Run don’t walk to Silo! You won’t be disappointed.

Just had my first visit to Silo. My friend and I shared several small plates. They were all really good. The pan fried ricotta dumplings and the chili rubbed steak skewers were my favs.
The atmosphere is rich, lots of wood grain and low lighting. The service was impeccable. Always on time and super friendly.

Atmosphere is casual bistro style. Wait staff is young and enthusiastic. Sound like a lot of other Nashville establishments? Yes. What clearly separates this restaurant is the food. The chef and her staff are artists, both in terms of vision and execution. Many of the dishes will appear familiar to you but will taste "out of this world" better than others that you may have had elsewhere. My wife and I shared two small plates and two large plates. All four were superior. We will go back to Silo soon to try some of the other plates.

Here from NY on a long weekend visit. Friend from NY recommended
trying so I made a reservation 2 months in advance. It was fabulous. Four of us tried 6 tapas that were delicious and I would have had as entrees! We had filet, trout and porkchop which we passed around the table. One better than the other cooked perfectly We ended with the cream cheese cake and 4 forks!!
Great food and attentive staff. Would Definitely return the next time we are in Nashville. We will also recommend to everyone who visits the area.

Our server seemed ambivalent -- he forgot to put in our appetizer order and didn't come check on our table until I flagged down another waiter. Menu has changed quite a bit since the last time we dined here -- some things are traditionally just as good as before (mac & cheese), other menu items have gone downhill (brussel sprouts). Fingers crossed that this was just a fluke for our date night -- we were disappointed.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on October 15, 2017

I was extremely disappointed with this restaurant. Our server, Jssica, was awful from the start. We ordered several sharing plates for our table (14 to be exact). Rather than enter these items at different times, she entered them all at the same and the food came out in a mass rush. The food was delicious, however, we could not even enjoy it because there were so many things on our table at once.

She made us feel like we were a bother in the restaurant, never checked on us, and acted as though people were waiting for us to leave so they could use our table. We were there no longer than an hour and a half, and the restaurant was not busy at all.

We asked about dessert and if they had espresso martinis, and she literally ROLLED HER EYES at us. At this point our group did not want to be subjected to the rudeness and asked for our check.

When the check arrived, she did not include the tip in the total, however, once we asked her to split on the cards, the tip just happened to be added at 20%.

There are several of other places in Nashville to enjoy a good meal (and have a friendly waitress). The lack of service outweighed the ambiance and delicious food offered at SILO. I would never recommend this restaurant, and would actual make sure to tell others about this experience.
