This was our fifth or sixth visit to the the Silo. I notified the the restaurant in advance that we needed 2 gluten free meals and one vegetarian meal for our guests. The food was amazing and the special meals were beyond expectations. Our guests thought it wasthe best meal, service and ambience they have experienced in a long time. Our vegetarian had never had a better vegetarian meal. We will be back soon. Thanks to Millicent and the entire staff of The Silo. Bravo!

Excellent and unusual food. Fish in fish curry was perfectly cooked: not at all overcooked, as is usually the case in Indian (and other!) fish dishes. Breads were also great: peshwari naan, not all that common on local menus, especially good. Service was fine also. Only complaint is that the tables (at least in the patio area) are too small to accommodate an Indian meal.

Great dinner. Our first time visiting Posana. We will be back. The "Locals" 3 course dinner was great. My wife had the bisque and I had the mussels appetizers. Both were outstanding. We both had the Trout entree, another winner. We had the wine pairing and the selections were excellent. As it was our anniversary, they added some nice extras. Overall a great experience.

So great to have a restaurant nearby that offers consistently good food, great service and fair prices. Part of me hopes it doesn't get discovered and become innaccessible :-)

About the restaurant
**To purchase tickets, reserve one of our experiences, please see the options listed below.** Established in 1998 by Susan and her husband Stoney Lamar, The Purple Onion was conceived as a 'third place' in Saluda, a neutral spot for friends and family to enjoy great food, engaging conversation, and live music. This vision flourished with a dedicated staff and supportive community. In 2020 the legacy was passed to Chambli Stuber and Emily Lamar, who continue to honor its tradition and role in the community, celebrating over two decades of service. Situated in historic Saluda, The Purple Onion boasts outdoor dining and live music on Thursday and Saturday nights. The Purple Onion features a variety of ethnically inspired dishes with an emphasis on the Mediterranean’s simple and healthy cuisine. We offer a selection of pizzas, pastas, seafood, vegetarian and meat dishes. Specialties include locally sourced trout and organic produce, along with antibiotic and hormone-free meats and poultry.
