I like that the food is from local farms. And that the beef is grass-fed. I'd prefer that there be more emphasis on organic food.
I particularly like the variety of food choices.

Stopped for a quick dinner with our three young kids after a day of running around in DC. Food was good with decent options for the kids and still something interesting for mom and dad. Service was fast and friendly. Only minor downside is the space felt a bit cramped and it was crowded but I can understand why. Will go back

Met friends for Sunday brunch. Crowded, noisy, glad we had a reservation. Food was good, warm ambiance, excellent service. First time ate there since Silver has been upgraded. Prefer new ambiance, food. Will return.

Quality of food has declined; scallops were not the same as the last time I visited. Pricey for a pretty normal meal. Next time, it would be cheaper to go to Chef Geoff's.

We had a reservation for a party of nine and had to wait about 15 minutes for our table although when we arrived they said it was almost ready. Upon sitting down at our table we did not have enough chairs and we were told they were busy and would get another chair immediately. We had to ask for another chair multiple times before receiving it. The food was great once it arrived. Took a while to get one entree. The food was very flavorful and fresh! Ambiance was nice. Would definitely go back.

Our family loves Silver. Excellent quality food. We all have our favorites on the menu. It is a great option for people with food allergies as all ingredients are clearly listed and they identify gluten free and vegetarian meals.

This was our first visit to Silver. Service was prompt and friendly; overall, it was a lovely dining experience. I had the Lemon Chicken Picatta from the "Under 600 Calories" section of the menu and it was quite good. My dining companion really enjoyed the Truffle Bison Meatloaf. We shared Smith Island Cake for dessert -- yum! I wish I'd ordered my own slice. The restaurant was fairly busy and while it was somewhat noisy, we didn't feel like we had to raise our voices to converse. I'd go back!

Party of 4 on a Friday. Initially sat outside but weather turned cloudy/rainy before we ordered so moved inside to booth, no problem.
Server prompt, food came pretty quickly. I ordered pastrami cubana and got to fill out customer survey about the sandwich! All other meals just fine, too. Stayed for almost 2 hours, no issue.

Silver, a restaurant version of Silver Diner, serves upscale diner food. We met some friends at noon, and it was quiet enough to have a good conversation. The food is typical comfort diner food, with large portions at a reasonable price. The restaurant is adjacent to the large Bethesda Row underground parking garage.

A beautiful deco style eatery for casual dining. Their version of a Moscow Mule was not to my taste (they make their own ginger beer which I found lacking). Dinner was very good the chicken pot pie made good use of herbs. The Chicken Piccatta was also very good although not worth the $5.00 increase over the price for the same dish at Silver Diner. Service was merely adequate.

We ordered a simple dinner--soup and salads. The soup was so salty, neither of us could eat it and we had to send it back. After our next plates were delivered, the manager came over but our server didn't at all. We had to wave him over to order coffee after dinner and after we received the coffee, he never came back to offer refills. We both agreed we weren't coming back again.

Food was good, i picked this place because they are vegetarian friendly and we had some vegetarians in the mix.
Though they saw the "bean burger" on the kids menu and asked for that and were told that the "veggie burger" would be used.
I believe the "bean burger" is smaller *kids sized* but wow did this cause confusion for all.

Also, reservation was for 6 and since we had the baby carrier/stroller with us I requested the booth to accommodate us. Our party grew by two children (their plans fell thru) and the restaurant could not accommodate our new party of 8 reservation.
We ended up calling ahead an hour and ended up getting the booth anyways.
It seems if they intended to put us in the same table area, why couldnt they just confirm my increased party... took 2 calls and some diligence but we got it.

Good burgers. Salad dressing on house salad was bad - too much vinegar. Smith island chocolate cake was not as sweet as I expected. Somehow they make a chocolate frosting that is neither chocolatey nor sweet.
