Silver - Cathedral Commons
Appetizer came out before our drinks, one of our dinners was placed incorrectly by the server. I received my food 20 minutes before my fiancé because of their mistake. The servers are nice and offered us free dessert, but we wanted to go out to eat and enjoy ourselves and just left feeling frustrated.
This restaurant offered a nice selection. I got the scallops and they were wonderful. Nice roomy booths and pleasant surroundings. I would highly recommend this place.
The miso salmon salad is terrific. The management is also so thoughtful - last time, an order of bacon was forgotten, and they gave us a voucher for a free entree. This time, they let us redeem that voucher even though it was past the expiration date. They really value their customers!
Worst service in 10 years
Our server was friendly and attentive, and three of the four of us found the food to be good. It took a long time for the food to arrive, though, and the restaurant was too noisy for us to talk without shouting.
Good good. The service is a bit slow. Had to ask for our drinks twice. The server blamed the bar. Not a great answer. Just apologize for the wait and bring the drinks. I think the server just forgot to pick them up from the bar.
The food and service were excellent. The end booth was a little tight.
We sat outside on a Sunday morning. It was lively and social and very pleasant. Felt like the place to have brunch!
We had a great dinner with good service at a reasonable price. Get the Apple Beignets, a la mode of course! Wonderful place to go after a concert at the National Cathedral.
We went for dinner after a performance at the National Cathedral. Even though we were a little late for our reservation, we were seated immediately. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The waitress was very pleasant, took our order and then someone else brought our drinks and dinners. That was problem, it wasn't clear who to flag down for another drink. Eventually the original waitress brought us another round. I wish restaurants would get away from this team service idea and go back to one server per table.
The Mahi Mahi Roasted Corn + Avocado Gluten-Free dish was amazing and will bring me back to this restaurant. Good location.
Silver is great for brunch. Skip non-brunch items. Quality and taste at dinner (multiple visits) disappoints. Brunch they do very well!
Very good for a quiet lunch -- we wanted to visit, and I asked for a quiet spot/booth when I made the reservation... they paid attention and made it happen!! good menu, good service ... all perfect!
Host did not bother to complete Open Table process, so I went down as a no show. Service was erratic. Steak Frites was medium well, not medium rare.
Nice breakfast place, love the juices and service is always good.
Silver has a great and unique menu with plenty of choices. The bison huevos rancheros were great, and we loved the brussel sprout side dish.
Our waitress was wonderful. The food was good, elevated diner fair. Our celebration was fun and light hearted for a birthday! Thank you.
The last few times we have eaten here, they seem perhaps understaffed...? Food can take forever to come out and it can take a long time to get the attention of a server. Food quality, when it arrives, remains high.
Food was excellent. Service can be a bit spotty but overall a very pleasant experience for a neighborhood restaurant.
I really want to love this place since it looks great and is so close to my house, but the food and service really uneven. The coffee is great, and the bison huevos rancheros are sublime, but everything else I have tried is just fair ( and at these prices the food needs to be better than that). Meatloaf, pot pie, pancakes, steak and eggs, hamburgers, fries, all I have ordered and all just fair. The bad news is that they don’t have much competition in this genre in the neighborhood, so they probably won’t improve.
Service was extremely slow. Outside of the waiter taking our order, he never came back to the table. Wasn’t that busy so not sure the reason for the slow service. Food was ok but everything was lukewarm.
Good neighborhood dining.
We had to ask twice for the drinks we ordered, it the server was pleasant. Great scallops, perfectly cooked
Had to wait a long time for a server.
Had to beg to have water refilled. Food adequate; ambiance fine. Service slow and indifferent.
This is a great extension of the Silver Diner brand into a more upscale concept. Thoughtful servers, they seem well trained and attentive. The menu was clear and simple, and the food was delicious. Seating outside along Wisconsin Avenue was comfortable and enjoyable.
Good service good food as is always the case. Had a vegetarian in our group and was happy with choices and
Service was extremely fast, from checking in, to the food, to getting the check.
Sorry to say ... the food is great but the service is just not there. Second time that we've experienced slow/poor service.
Interesting and tasteful menu. We would go again.
Definitely unexpected deliciousness! Would have never thought I’d get food like that, from the outside of it. Very good food, and the creme brûlée was so silky!! Not too rich, and perfect for the season! Went for DC Restaurant Week, lunch special! Happy I did.. celebrated my birthday alone, they made me feel welcomed!
Food as usual here was excellent in both taste and presentation. Reservations service was responsive in accommodating our request for a quieter table. Food service, however, was poor at best: took our waiter about 15 minutes to show even with a glass of water. He then disappeared. Once order finally taken kitchen service delivered in reasonable time with hot plates of steaming food. When meal finished, waiter again disappeared. The place was not so busy that he was overloaded.
Great friendly service. Good food selection for kids and adults.
Nice gem in the neighborhood. Not too loud so able have a conversation.
Silver at Cathedral Commons is always terrific. It’s a fun, convenient place to meet (with two-hour parking validated), and the food is creative in conception and just plain delicious. As are the milkshakes. We had a great table (a big booth) and wonderful server. My friends and I will be returning soon!
Excellent for lunch or brunch! Delicious and varied choices
We enjoyed the food...the server told us that what was on the menu was wrong as to whether there we fries included with the salmon slider. I have never encountered a place not honoring what its menu said and charging separately for something that is listed under sandwiches as included. On a slow night we had slow service, but overall, it was a decent meal.
Good quick place to meet and eat
Love this place and go frequently. Great food variety and appetizing dishes. Quality control could be improved, particularly between the two Silver restaurants. Never sure what I'm getting. Prices can't be beat!
Sweet little upgrade by Silver Diner. Great service, expansive menu, yummy and well-prepared food. Wonderful to sit outside on a nice day.
Silver Diner has many good choices for all tastes and preferences. The entree salad with salmon was delicious. Salmon was cooked perfectly which is always the most important attribute. Our guest was delayed and the staff was very understanding and patient about that. It is good for brunches, lunches and probably dinner although I have never had dinner. Everyone was very attentive and welcoming.
