Sequoia was flexible each time we had to adjust the number of people in our party.
The atmosphere was lively despite the fears about the virus.
The food was served quickly and it was absolutely delicious.
The grilled cheese and tomato soup was a big hit and was on the quick lunch menu and was super affordable.

We will go again.

As usual, Silver provided a great all around dining experience. Bethesda's dining scene is diversifying but amidst all our dining choices this eatery never disappoints.

It was aight. I'm definitely not going here for brunch anymore. They had OK food but it's not special enough, considering all the other brunch choices in town.

Silver's lunch time special is great -- soup and 1/2 sandwich for $10. The meal is delicious especially at this price point. The tomato soup is delicious with a distinct basil flavor - not overwhelming. just enough to add some interest. The BLT was also great. I rarely eat pork bacon but this sandwich is a real treat. The noise level was fine. We had a good conversation without having to yell at each other even though the restaurant was doing a booming business. Definitely would go back again

Good food, friendly but extremely slow service with not much attention. We needed to remind our server multiple times for items we haven't received. I asked for a coffee refill and never got it. The food is delicious and they pay attention to any allergies that you may have. Overall, it is a nice place. Make sure you make a reservation, especially for Sunday brunch. Overall good place to visit.

Need a late night dinner after a concert? There are surprisingly few options. Silver is not only an excellent restaurant but it is also open until 1:00 am! Check it out. You won’t be disappointed. The tuna poke is awesome.

Quiet but inviting to be social, I was very happy to take my s/o to Silver for a simple American dinner with fresh twists as Silver says they set out to be. I enjoyed the shareable plates, such as the Chimichurri Chicken Wings and the Naan Bread. My s/o had the Bison Huevos Rancheros, in which she likes even moreso than the same exact dish served at their sister restaurant for being less salty, while I enjoyed the Fried Chicken Mac & Cheese. Later-evening Valentine's Day dinner was not too hectic and the service was excellent! I would come here again any other time!

The food was pretty good, I had a delicious, unique brunch item and the crab and corn soup. My server seemed flustered and a bit inattentive, but otherwise pleasant. Did take a while to get a water refill.

Only if they had a snack before they left the house. Do NOT go hungry. Scallops small and only six - for the price 8 would be satisfactory. Friend left hungry, as she also had an appetizer. Grain bowls, not enough, went home hungry. Overall the food was good, not good enough to go back.

I’ve been wanting to go to a “diner” for a while now. My husband and I went early on Valentines Day at 4:30. There is a nice variety of types of for a wide range of preferences and good options for vegetarians. The food was quite tasty.

This was my first time dining at Silver. I was very impressed with what I ordered - it was the Impossible Burger - delicious! And not too many fries given (you helped save me from myself). :) We also had the Apple Beignets for dessert - wow! Light, fluffy, and moist inside. The honey dip was perfect. Will be back!

Was there with my son and his lady love who almost always has a salad. Thus I thought of Silver. Another friend had had three of their salads on prior occasions and raved about each. Today the warm salad was ordered and was delightfully fresh, tasty and full of unique flavors perfectly combined. My son and I each had the Angus burger with bacon. Ordering medium rare it came out juicy and accompanied by lots of crispy fries. Never have to be concerned-guests can always find multiple choices they would love no matter their usual preferences. Enjoy!

Convenient, nice place in the heart of Bethesda. Menu is small, drinks list is large. Nice booths if you want a quiet spot. Have been several times. The food is OK, service is spotty. On my recent trip, it took too long in a mostly empty restaurant on a Monday night to get service when I arrived. Once we had our waitress's attention, service was good. I had a burger that was fine but arrived barely warm. French fries were good, too, but also barely warm. My guest liked their burger.

Family and I enjoyed the Sunday brunch. We were a table of 8 and were lucky to get a table by the back wall where the noise level was good for conversation. In the center of the restaurant, the level was much higher. The server was prompt and helpful. The menu is very eclectic and interesting. The food was provided in a timely manner and everyone felt their dishes were well prepared and tasty.
Will probably go back in the future.

We enjoyed our food and our server was very attentive. We had a rather large group and felt a little bit crowded being tucked in the back near the servers station. Not the best for large groups (we had 12 people). Despite that, everyone enjoyed their food and I would definitely return - just with a smaller group.

Service can definitely be improved, orders were miss delivered to other tables and took long to get ours. They all came at different times and at the end the food was good but nothing to rave about. Definitely the simpler the dish the better the quality. Specially when it comes to brunch items!

Love the ambiance, but on this Sunday brunch -- our service was slow, I thought the substitution of Bearnaise sauce on Eggs Benedict (for standard Hollandaise) was a little weird. And the Bloody Mary tasted like they'd put vinegar in it instead of vodka!! How can such an upscale place make that many mistakes??

By all means, I heartily recommend this destination to friends... though the noise level is a problem when the restaurant is crowded. I do appreciate the kitchen's increasing compliance with my salt-free low sodium food preparation request upon ordering. Another perk is a bonus dessert or milkshake with your same day Bethesda Row cinema ticket stub.
