This is my go to place when in Bethesda. Very good food at reasonable prices with friendly service. Also, it is quiet enough to enjoy a conversation.

Service was simply awful. We were sitting outside and twice I had to walk inside to find our server. Think he was overworked but still…. We waited a long time for our main course. As server was flying by after a long time we asked where our dinner was. He said it was ready and waiting for him. Well,at least 20 minutes later, we were served. It was a 2 hr meal for a casual dinner. Not right! Luckily the food is yummy.

Brunch was great. We had super service, lots of delicious choices for everyone’s palate. The fresh OJ is a must. They did run out of whole wheat toast at 10:30am! That’s odd

Chicken pot pie was disgusting. Overwhelming herb flavor and hard, oily crust. Very disappointing.

We needed to eat inside at a quiet table and they were very accommodating. It was my friend's birthday and they brought a complimentary piece of delicious cake!

I am willing to dine indoors because of Silver's improved airflow system. The service is always good. As is the food. I especially love the dessert I always order: Pistachio Mousse.

Excellent breakfast there last weekend. Raphael was our waiter and was prompt, friendly and courteous. Nice outdoor seating with soothing background music. Great omlettes, all the food that passed us by looked delicious.

The location in downtown Bethesda is great, and the service is friendly, but the food is mediocre, particularly given the prices. I won’t be going back.

food wasn't great. fries were cold, sandwich (crispy chicken) wasn't crispy. service while friendly was a bit neglectful. Left dishes on table even after we said we were done.... two different times. No offer for drink refill.

I had a delightful and delicious Eggs Benedict brunch with a former work colleague. We sat outdoors, which is very pleasant at Silver. The service was attentive especially with respect to keeping my coffee cup filled. Silver is a good value for the quantity and quality of the food provided. Silver is also consistent in the high quality of food offered. Silver is one of my go-to places either in Bethesda or DC.

Matthew our server was wonderful. Attentive but not intrusive. Made great suggestions. We never felt rushed. First time there. Avocado and salmon were delicious. My favorite was the champagne cocktail with strawberries.
Hope to go back soon.

Silver is an excellent restaurant. Their outside seating is roomy and in the shade. The food was beyond excellent. The dish I had was so very well designed and was an interesting mix of complementary flavors. Kudos to the chef!

This restaurant was really good. For the amount of food that I ordered it was worth it for the price of the total amount for my food. The service was excellent and our waiter kept checking in to make sure we were ok, if the food was ok and if there was anything we didn't like she would recommend something better. She was so friendly and I love the outside setting it was so beautiful.

We ate outside. The staff was attentive. Food was good. It got a little tricky when it started to rain and the staff helped with repositioning under the umbrellas. I would go back.
