Great food and service!

We stayed in Arlington while visiting D.C. We wanted to find a good place to eat that wouldn't break the bank. The Silver Diner was recommended by our hotel receptionist and we were very pleased with the menu, food and service. Our friends loved the vegan dishes accompanied by fresh veggies... read more

We ordered a mixture of things, omelettes, gluten-free pancakes with coconut, and a steak. All 3 of us loved what we got. Great service from the waitress. Hostess was MIA a lot of the time, so it took awhile to be seated. Still worth the wait.

This place was such a fantastic surprise - not only is it healthy food (fresh, locally sourced, farm to table) but it was delicious! They serve wine and beer (unheard of for a diner in our home state, DE - and such a welcomed addition to diner dining). Service is fast - like a regular diner, staff people are knowledgeable...

Best place to go for breakfast in Arlington. Huevos rancheros and coconut French toast are outstanding. Nice,strong hot coffee, fast service and farm to table food. What more could you want?

The quality and variety of the food makes this place no ordinary diner. Conceived, started and run by an executive chef, you are in for a treat. The decor is that of a 50s Diner, with a mini jukebox at every table. Drop your coins, select your songs and they play over the speakers across the entire restaurant. Excellent service.... More

It's in a great location, right in the heart of Clarendon, so it's convenient, but it's just another Silver Diner, nothing special about it.

This is by far some of the best food I have ever had at any restaurant. We came here for breakfast three mornings in a row---and would have come for more, except we had to go back home to New Jersey. The staff got to know us, and when we left that final morning, it was like leaving friends. What... More

This is a really fun diner, not only in looks but the menu offers so much. We came early on a Sunday before an ice storm hit the DC area. Lots of people were out even at a fairly early hour. I got my usual bacon and fried eggs and tried the sausage because the menu assured it was gluten... More

Last night I ate a great meal at Silver Diner - I hadn't been in a year and was very happy to see a continued level of healthy, hot and well presented food with good portions, warm/enjoyable atmosphere and excellent service. We attended during a fundraiser for our local high school's choir. I also value that Silver Diner gives back... More
