What a lovely gem that I discovered for Saturday brunch! My waiter was very attentive and the food was delicious! I had the acai berry yogurt and the bison huevos rancheros...soooo good. The fruit was very fresh and the portions was big. I wanted everything on the menu! Oh and if you go, definitely try the pineapple mimosa!

Before the pandemic we were frequent diners primarily for breakfast. Soon after arrival last Saturday, the ambiance of Silver quickly made us feel life was normal again.

Overall, the food was not that great. The vegetables seemed like they had been microwaved as some where hot and others were not.

Great service. Nice food. Little price for portion and test. Ambiance was a little noise since it’s on main road. But otherwise nice restaurant to try.

I’ve eaten at silver a ton all before covid. I have small kids and it was our go to spot for good food in a family friendly environment.
This experience was seriously very bad. I ordered a salad that both my wife and I have eaten numerous times in the past and it was awful. Vegetables were either undercooked or slimy, salmon was way over cooked. Very disappointing. I hope it was a one-time thing and not a permanent trend.

Consistently good which is why we go very often. Unfortunately, because of nearby construction and garage alarm sounding throughout the meal, ambiance wasn't as good as usual.

The food was excellent, although it could have been more generous. The service was slow but very friendly. However, it was set up really nicely to eat outside, with good distancing. I will definitely go back. The menus also has a lot of vegetarian choices--but more would be appreciated.

The umbrellas make it a nice spot for eating outside - there's just some street noise.
Would definitely recommend.

I was excited about the salmon sliders, but couldn’t get them as I was told they weren’t yet prepped. They’re listed on the lunch menu, so I couldn’t understand why they were not prepped and ready for customers to order at lunch.

Oaxaca omlette was excellent--veggie filling and guacamole on top, with eggs cooked just right. Banana, strawberry, and yogurt dish was fine. Lovely outside setting, just the place to meet friends for an informal al fresco meal.

My husband and mother-in-law law and I had dinner at Silver to celebrate Mother’s Day. The food was absolutely delicious. Every single dish. And I think the prices were reasonable. The service left quite a bit to be desired, however. We had a young server who was perhaps inexperienced, but he also just seemed to be out of it. It took forever to get our drinks, at times we had no silverware, and he did not check on whether we liked our meals until we were finished. Really unfortunate because everything else about the experience was great.

Abismal service. Went for Mother’s Day brunch. Service was awful. Apparently the kitchen was backed up but everything was slow. 20 minutes to get drinks. An hour and a half from when we ordered to get the food. Servers ignoring us since they obviously were over talking about the delay in food service. Gave us a a gift card that we probably won’t be using. Food was good once we got it but not worth the wait.

Great food and service. The place is slightly on the expensive end, but all the dishes that I've had are delicious and come out very neatly too. The restaurant is located slightly away from the main road within Bethesda, so it's relatively quiet even when you are sitting outside (except for those hella tuned-out cars passing by from time to time).
It's definitely very busy, so you may not be able to get an outdoor table during the weekend, but the seating is also spread out and enough distance away from other tables around you. Definitely recommend for a good weekend brunch/ lunch spot, and I'd personally like to try their dinner/ happy hour menu as well!
