    I was in from out of town and was looking for a place to meet friends of my son's. I was looking for a great menu, friendly service and uncrowded seating. Everything worked out great plus the extra time we had at the bar was fun-I think Chad or Chase was our bartenders name.

    Silver is our go-to neighborhood joint. Menu is excellent, with enough change to keep you coming back. Not fancy, but nice. Service is attentive, but can get overwhelmed. Any problems are immediately dealt with by responsive managers. Had the prix fixe menu on Valentine's Day and every dish was excellent.

    A wonderful brunch was enjoyed by all 5 of us, including two preteen somewhat fussy eaters. Our waitress was an absolute delight: very attentive, professional and patient. We consumed crab cake sliders, salmon goat cheese omelet, avocado toast, French toast, chicken sandwich, tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich and I’m probably forgetting something. All delicious!

    This neighborhood restaurant has good food but, I’m disappointed by the fish announced specials and what actually is brought out. A different fish all together. This has happened twice. I guess I’ll try something else. Still worth going and trying other dishes.

    We've been to Silver many times in Bethesda so this is a familiar and reliable with something good for everyone. One problem: we ordered hot tea, but the water was lukewarm. I presume they failed to use hot water to heat up the pot and cup first before pouring out the water and filling it again with hot water for serving, thereby warming them up before serving them. If you only put hot water in a tea cup or tea pot or coffee cup, then the room temperature cup will immediately cool the water making it impossible to steep the tea.

    It took a while for the server to showup, but once he did things went well. Initially they gave me a breakfast menu, but I was finally able to get a dinner menu. The main thing is that this restaurant is right down the street from Washington National Cathedral, so it's convenient to get something to eat right before a service.

    I had the huevos rancheros. The bison hash was good, but the gluten free bread was pretty bad. Would it be possible to offer a GF tortilla to make it more like a traditional huevos rancheros? Otherwise, the service was friendly and the vibe was cozy.

    Service was great, 1st Latte was great. Hot, really good tasting coffee. Grilled cheese was old, not fresh at all. Cheese was hard and cold in temperature. Tomato soup was lukewarm warm, had to ask for it to be reheated, it was very tasty though. Avocado toast was average. Omelette was cold. 2nd Latte was tasteless and coffee dripping down both of our cups. Overall extremely disappointing meals. It was not busy at all so there was no excuse for cold and old food to be served. Will not be visiting again.

    You still need to figure out how to seat people when they arrive. Yesterday there were three hostesses talking to each other. There were three parties waiting. Today the three hostesses were rearranging tables to seat eight people. A lot to do. But when one returned there were ten of us waiting to be seated..

    Service was horribly slow, and it was impossible to get anyone’s attention. It took 20 minutes just to get menus. It’s unfortunate, because the food is decent and the atmosphere is pleasant, but I won’t be going back until they fix the service as it has been a problem for a while.

    Excellent experience as usual. Silver gets it. From the front of the house to the back. On the rare occasion when there’s a hiccup, they’re the first to acknowledge it and fix it.
