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!

Food was OK but nothing special. The cocktails were apparently without alcohol, quite bland. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

Its a pandemic so service is slower than it used to be. Maybe convert one of the hosts to wait staff.

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.

For a place that had an "executive chef" the food was just mediocre. Didn't taste bad, but it was nothing special. And the service was slow.

The host was not friendly at all, she looked hungover and like she couldn't care less. The server was friendly but forgot to bring crayons for our daughter even though we requested it. The sauce on the eggs benedict was béarnaise not hollandaise (what??). Anyway, it was ok, but I love this place so I was disappointed.

Absolutely love it! Food was soooooo darn good! Our waiter Guiermo was so kind and attended to our needs. It was a fun brunch among girls and he was just so kind and entertaining our needs. I have to introduce this to my finance as he is a fellow brunch lover also. Therefore I will be back! Thanks you so much!

I’ve been to Silver many times and usually it’s great. But last night the salad was overdressed and a bit soggy and the service wasn’t great. That said, I’ll go back again and hopefully things will be good again.

Hostess was friendly and quick to seat us with menu. Water and utensils brought immediately but no waiter showed up until 15 minutes later to take our order. Finally, after 15 minutes another server brought our brunch entrees, but not our special juice drinks that should have arrived first while we waited. Server got the waiter who was very nice, but never even asked to bring coffee or tea & it was brunch! My husband had to catch him as he ran off after quickly delivering the juices. I have never had such poor service at Silver in the past.

The food at Silver is always delicious with lots of choices to make everyone in your group happy. It's not overly expensive and the atmosphere is casual and fun, especially if you enjoy sitting outside on the patio and people watching.

The food was great. The servers were awesome but the hostesses were kind of rude. We stood at the desk with three of them at it for about a minute until we finally said something to them, they acknowledged us.

Our first visit. For restaurant week. Lots of problems ... waiter had not been informed of restaurant week; restaurant week menu not provided until I asked. Some food was burnt; had a piece of inedible something in food of one person, manager came and told us it was a piece of the outside of an onion. Waiter disappeared. Had to call on another waiter to get us dessert. There's more. We will not go back. We are long-time Silver Diner devotees, and expected much better from Silver their "upscale" eatery. Not so.

A terrible dining experience for the four of us. My dish came out cold. My daughter’ fish and chips was coated in salt infused leathery dough and also had to be returned, my wife’s dish just simply did not arrive at all and I suppose she was the lucky one. Aside from a perfunctory apology no effort was made to compensate or acknowledge a thoroughly botched dinner. After a long wait as they debated among themselves the manager comped my wife’s salad which came only after they realized that the waiter had not turned in the order. We were regular customers- never again.
