Silver - Cathedral Commons
Very good for a quiet lunch -- we wanted to visit, and I asked for a quiet spot/booth when I made the reservation... they paid attention and made it happen!! good menu, good service ... all perfect!
Host did not bother to complete Open Table process, so I went down as a no show. Service was erratic. Steak Frites was medium well, not medium rare.
Nice breakfast place, love the juices and service is always good.
Silver has a great and unique menu with plenty of choices. The bison huevos rancheros were great, and we loved the brussel sprout side dish.
Our waitress was wonderful. The food was good, elevated diner fair. Our celebration was fun and light hearted for a birthday! Thank you.
The last few times we have eaten here, they seem perhaps understaffed...? Food can take forever to come out and it can take a long time to get the attention of a server. Food quality, when it arrives, remains high.
Food was excellent. Service can be a bit spotty but overall a very pleasant experience for a neighborhood restaurant.
I really want to love this place since it looks great and is so close to my house, but the food and service really uneven. The coffee is great, and the bison huevos rancheros are sublime, but everything else I have tried is just fair ( and at these prices the food needs to be better than that). Meatloaf, pot pie, pancakes, steak and eggs, hamburgers, fries, all I have ordered and all just fair. The bad news is that they don’t have much competition in this genre in the neighborhood, so they probably won’t improve.
Service was extremely slow. Outside of the waiter taking our order, he never came back to the table. Wasn’t that busy so not sure the reason for the slow service. Food was ok but everything was lukewarm.
Good neighborhood dining.
We had to ask twice for the drinks we ordered, it the server was pleasant. Great scallops, perfectly cooked
Had to wait a long time for a server.
Had to beg to have water refilled. Food adequate; ambiance fine. Service slow and indifferent.
This is a great extension of the Silver Diner brand into a more upscale concept. Thoughtful servers, they seem well trained and attentive. The menu was clear and simple, and the food was delicious. Seating outside along Wisconsin Avenue was comfortable and enjoyable.
Good service good food as is always the case. Had a vegetarian in our group and was happy with choices and
Service was extremely fast, from checking in, to the food, to getting the check.
Sorry to say ... the food is great but the service is just not there. Second time that we've experienced slow/poor service.
Interesting and tasteful menu. We would go again.
Definitely unexpected deliciousness! Would have never thought I’d get food like that, from the outside of it. Very good food, and the creme brûlée was so silky!! Not too rich, and perfect for the season! Went for DC Restaurant Week, lunch special! Happy I did.. celebrated my birthday alone, they made me feel welcomed!
Food as usual here was excellent in both taste and presentation. Reservations service was responsive in accommodating our request for a quieter table. Food service, however, was poor at best: took our waiter about 15 minutes to show even with a glass of water. He then disappeared. Once order finally taken kitchen service delivered in reasonable time with hot plates of steaming food. When meal finished, waiter again disappeared. The place was not so busy that he was overloaded.
Great friendly service. Good food selection for kids and adults.
Nice gem in the neighborhood. Not too loud so able have a conversation.
Silver at Cathedral Commons is always terrific. It’s a fun, convenient place to meet (with two-hour parking validated), and the food is creative in conception and just plain delicious. As are the milkshakes. We had a great table (a big booth) and wonderful server. My friends and I will be returning soon!
Excellent for lunch or brunch! Delicious and varied choices
We enjoyed the food...the server told us that what was on the menu was wrong as to whether there we fries included with the salmon slider. I have never encountered a place not honoring what its menu said and charging separately for something that is listed under sandwiches as included. On a slow night we had slow service, but overall, it was a decent meal.
Good quick place to meet and eat
Love this place and go frequently. Great food variety and appetizing dishes. Quality control could be improved, particularly between the two Silver restaurants. Never sure what I'm getting. Prices can't be beat!
Sweet little upgrade by Silver Diner. Great service, expansive menu, yummy and well-prepared food. Wonderful to sit outside on a nice day.
Silver Diner has many good choices for all tastes and preferences. The entree salad with salmon was delicious. Salmon was cooked perfectly which is always the most important attribute. Our guest was delayed and the staff was very understanding and patient about that. It is good for brunches, lunches and probably dinner although I have never had dinner. Everyone was very attentive and welcoming.
I met a colleague for a business lunch, and we had an excellent experience. We had fantastic service, the food was great — easy to eat while conversing — and the restaurant was quiet enough for us to talk without being overheard by everyone else around us.
The waiter was rude and kicked us out because she said she wanted to go home.
The food and our waitress were great as usual.
I have been to Silver many times now and have never been disappointed. The menu is interesting and creative, the outdoor space is great (and pet friendly!), the service is very pleasant and efficient. It's a great add to the Woodley/Cleveland Park neighborhood. And I really do appreciate the Thursday summer evening Pups on the Patio event!
Food is always excellent! Service was great! Will be back
Were greeted by a lovely lady at the hostess stand and gave us a quiet booth and had a awesome server name Connor as our waiter
Ask for Connor he’s a great
I like the Bethesda Silver much better. But, if in the Cathedral area, it’s okay.
We had the worst server ever. He never checked in on us. The idea of bringing a coffee pot for refills was a foreign concept to the guy. Also the Food and coffee took forever and the restaurant was slow. The food was good and the prices were right but I’ll leave if I have the same server again.
Celebrating a friend’s retirement
The apple fritters were amazing! As some reviews said, service is slow and food came out cool. Hope they can continue improving because the menu and ambiance are great.
i appreciate their using local fresh ingredients in a healthy manner
We went for Fathers’ Day brunch and were very impressed. I had the Power breakfast- egg white scramble, and it was one of the best I have had in a long time. Just well balanced with the right amount of eggs, vegetables and goat cheese. Everyone else was equally impressed. Definitely would recommend this restaurant.
