    Went for brunch with my 8 year old niece and sister-in-law. I had the avocado toast with burrata - amazing. My niece loved her silver dollar pancakes and my sister-in-law had the Mexican style omelet. Highly recommend for groups of all ages.

    I normally go to the Bethesda location of this restaurant. I went to this location for their 5th year anniversary restaurant-week-style menu. The prix fixe menu is a good deal, but the service was very slow. My friend and I were sitting at the bar, and even though there were several staff members behind the bar, they were mostly just talking to each other and goofing around instead of waiting on customers. I had to actually get up myself and get extra plates because the server never brought them! Perhaps it would have been better if we had sat at a table, but that shouldn't matter.

    I enjoyed my first visit to Silver on Wisconsin Ave. NW for Sunday brunch. Food was fresh and good. Lots of options. Prices were reasonable. It was busy so it took awhile to get our meals, but that is my only issue.

    My daughter and enjoyed Sunday brunch at Cathedral Commons. The weather was gorgeous for outdoor dining which we requested; however our original server as inattentive, and ignored us completely. Thank goodness for the male manager on duty who took it upon himself to provide undivided service to us. He and the chef on duty made our brunch the best ever! Food was fresh, hot and delicious;their service bad done professionally with a smile and personality. As for the originals female server, she only appeared at our table with the bill, hoping to collect a tip —- you figure it out!!!

    A good neighborhood upscale diner with a wide-ranging menu that provides something for everyone. Good selection of craft beers and cocktails. Have been going here regularly for two years and, like many restaurants, the pandemic has made them inconsistent. Most days the food is good, although we have had occasional bad experiences. However, management always steps up and makes things right, which is why we continue to patronize them. We understand times are challenging. On our most recent visit the hangar steak was good, although I could do without the gravy on the side which I found oddly seasoned. It was correctly cooked to order (med rare). Fries are crisp and tasty and salad was fresh. My wife had the fish and chips which were very good, although I would describe it as more breaded than battered. She enjoyed their remoulade sauce. Service was well-intentioned but slow. Staff seemed a bit overwhelmed, even though the place was half-full. Like most places now, seems a bit pricey. Bill was $68 for two entrees and one beer (including 20% tip).

    Food quality is not great. Ham and Cheese omelet had very little ham and cheese. The veggie huevos rancheros had little egg and was mostly cous-cous. Pancakes were dry and not full of flavor. Burger was good but very small. Service was very slow and we waited a long time for our food

    We hadn't visited Silver Diner in a while. The service was excellent, but the food was mediocre at best. My lamb meatball pasta dish was served at room temperature (fatal to most pasta dishes) and unappealingly seasoned, with WAY too much rosemary. It shouldn't be hard to get such a simple pasta dish right, particularly for c. $25. Being spoiled for choice in DC these days, we probably won't return to Silver Diner anytime soon.

    We actually never got a table. Upon our arrival, the hostess told us that we had already checked and were seated outside. Clearly., we were not - as we had just arrived. She proceeds to go outside and points at a guy and says - “isn’t that your husband?” After I told her again, we had not even checked in and had just arrived- she proceeded to tell me - “it’s first come first serve. “ and walked away from me. I was flabbergasted and shocked. We ended up walking up the street and had the most amazing experience at Barcelona- a far better restaurant. We will NEVER be dinning at the Silver. Good Luck.

    The servers demeanor was so off putting. He couldn’t believe it when my mother in law asked for a straw and had the audacity to say to her ‘and that too?’ while walking away. My husband wanted to leave after he took our order. Clearly displaying some attitude when my husband asked him questions about a dish. We ended up canceling our order and leaving due to server. Won’t be eating at any Silver Diner again.

    Service was slow. Soups came out cold. The four of us were disappointed and waited over 40 minutes until the soups arrived COLD. The manager came to our table to discuss the situation. Ten minutes later someone picked up the soups for re-heating. An unpleasant dining experience. The Restaurant was quite scarce of patrons the majority of which had canceled because of the rain Sunday evening.

    We had such a sweet, charming server who was very eager to help, but the management less so. We bought a “pitcher“ of sangria, but it was really just 3/4 of a carafe. My salad was delicious, but the salmon on the salad it was so dry it was barely edible, and nobody came by to ask how our meal was

    Our appetizer (bruschetta) and our entrees (grain bowls) were delicious. Service was friendly, but not very attentive. We had to wave down our server to get our order taken and we waited quite a while after we asked for water refill. Also waved server down for the bill. The restaurant was not busy at all, so not sure what else was going on.

    I really appreciate Silver's commitment to local sourcing. My friend and I were both delighted with our different dishes, served with minor adjustments that we'd requested without a fuss. The service was speedy and professional, the tables and booths relatively far apart. I'm already looking forward to returning.

    Silver is my go-to neighborhood restaurant. I like its menu, the up-graded ventilation system and pleasant atmosphere. I went most recently with two friends who are more demanding than I in their expectations of attention, special treatment and response. While they were dissatisfied at some points, I thought the hostess and servers were quite gracious. I tried a different salad (miso glazed salmon) than I usually have and found it fully acceptable but I am likely to return to the Ahi Tuna Poke bowl which has a more interesting variety of flavors. One friend was very satisfied with his burger; we all liked his fries. The other friend took her left-over salad home. I was surprised by the number of negative reviews for this establishment and wanted to go on record to recommend it.
