    I think like everywhere, Silver is short staffed. Took a while, 25 min to half an hour to get the meal. Waiter and everyone was very friendly.

    We had such a sweet, charming server who was very eager to help, but the management less so. We bought a “pitcher“ of sangria, but it was really just 3/4 of a carafe. My salad was delicious, but the salmon on the salad it was so dry it was barely edible, and nobody came by to ask how our meal was

    Our appetizer (bruschetta) and our entrees (grain bowls) were delicious. Service was friendly, but not very attentive. We had to wave down our server to get our order taken and we waited quite a while after we asked for water refill. Also waved server down for the bill. The restaurant was not busy at all, so not sure what else was going on.

    I really appreciate Silver's commitment to local sourcing. My friend and I were both delighted with our different dishes, served with minor adjustments that we'd requested without a fuss. The service was speedy and professional, the tables and booths relatively far apart. I'm already looking forward to returning.

    Silver is my go-to neighborhood restaurant. I like its menu, the up-graded ventilation system and pleasant atmosphere. I went most recently with two friends who are more demanding than I in their expectations of attention, special treatment and response. While they were dissatisfied at some points, I thought the hostess and servers were quite gracious. I tried a different salad (miso glazed salmon) than I usually have and found it fully acceptable but I am likely to return to the Ahi Tuna Poke bowl which has a more interesting variety of flavors. One friend was very satisfied with his burger; we all liked his fries. The other friend took her left-over salad home. I was surprised by the number of negative reviews for this establishment and wanted to go on record to recommend it.

    Unusually bad experience - we go to this restaurant every week and we love it. BUT - This time chicken salad with no chicken, incorrect salad dressing, no refills…when I asked for the chicken, I was brought a cup of cold pieces of chicken. I finally gave up.

    Our food was underseasoned and served lukewarm. Our appetizer and entrees arrived at the same time, even though we ordered our appetizer 5-7 minutes before ordering our entree. Our server was absolutely wretched. We have no intention of returning. Not only will we not recommend this restaurant to friends, we will discourage them from going.

    We have enjoyed Silver several times in the past, but food for two of us was definitely not what had in the past. The chicken piccata consisted of two dried out, paper-thin slices of chicken and the bison meatloaf was too salty and too peppery. Service was fine.

    Went for breakfast. Service was fine, but highly disappointed in the food. It was delivered luke warm at best, and this isn’t the first time this has happened. Given that it was not crowded at all, I was surprised that was the case. Real shame, as I love the location and the ambiance is really nice. Outdoor seating is also nice. But not sure if I would go back due to the issue with the food.

    I am a frequent visitor to Silver which has become a neighborhood go to when I want a good meal without all the formality of dining out. The atmosphere is casual.The food is always seasonally fresh - I am particularly a fan of breakfast served all day. The service is always good and the team works together very well. It's a great place to take friends and family as well as eat alone with good book.

    Overall had a really awful experience at Silver. Friend’s steak was like a dog treat it was so overcooked, then asked for another and THAT one was well done as well. Had asked for medium rare. Huevos rancheros needed lots of salt, pepper, and hot sauce to have flavor. And the avocado mix had huge chunks in it. Shouldn’t have to pay $4 to add a mini fruit cup to a plate of French toast. Scrambled eggs tasted like rubber according to friends. Waitress was very sweet, food took forever - not her fault. Only good dish was the chimichurri chicken wings as an appetizer. Ordered 1 drink between the 4 of us, a single appetizer, no add-ons, and paid $120 pre-tip for a really bad meal. Will never be returning. I can’t so many people eat there and go back.

    Sat down to eat at 630pm. Took 20 minutes for someone to even address us and come to our table. We ordered and then waited another 50 minutes for the food to arrive. That's over an hour of a family with a toddler waiting for food to arrive with no proactive intervention or check in from the Silver staff. We had to initiate that. We gave up, stood up to pack and leave, and magically the food arrives. Everything kind of warm, but not really. Only half of the appetizers we ordered showed up. That's when were told they were actually out of what we ordered for some dishes. Topped it all off by giving our check to another table, so someone was looking at our credit card for a bit. Thanks! They offered to give us some free dishes the next time we go, but we will not be back.

    Service was absolutely abysmal. Drinks took around 30 minutes to come out (3 cups of coffee and a Bloody Mary) and our server didn’t check up on us until 10 min after that. Once we got our food, our server was nowhere in sight so we asked one of the ladies in the blue for hot sauce and she proceeded to slam the hot sauce bottle on our table and storm away- she was probably upset we asked her to grab us a hot sauce bottle but we hadn’t seen our server in over 20 min once we got our food, so we felt like we had no choice but to ask the first person we saw- so that was quite rude. Once we did see our server, he fumbled to apologize and barely came back up to us after we complained despite his absence being the very reason why we were frustrated. I’ve worked in 3 restaurants before, so I understand the industry so I tried my hardest to excuse his service but I literally couldn’t because he just simply wasn’t doing his job. The most frustrating part about this is that the service is like this every time I go, so they definitely need to hire servers who actually understand how to wait on tables- I will not be going back ever and definitely will not recommend this place to others because it’s not worth the unbelievably slow service and the attitude that comes with it.

    I have lunch with my kids. Great food, but the service was terrible, and it's the second time I have had the same issue with the service. We arrived and spent more than 10 minutes with No server. I have to call the manager to get the server. I have the same problem with the server, who spent more than 15 minutes bringing the bill, and I asked for the doggy bag because my 3-year-old son did not eat his food. I never saw the doggy bag, and we had to leave the restaurant after more than 10 minutes

    I wish I had known our outdoor table was really just in a tent outside. I get it's for colder days, but it's warming up, and for COVID reasons I'd prefer to be outside. And it was quite warm in the tent on a sunny 75-degree day. Otherwise, the food was delicious and we were not rushed which I really appreciated. Service was a little hard to get ahold of, but we got our meals and drinks in a fairly timely manner. Overall a great spot to catch up with friends.
