I have always been happy with my dinners. The service is excellent. We have had family dinners, couples, take out and we held my sons rehearsal dinner there for 50 people.

We have been going to Silvis Sheldon since it opened over 25 years ago. The ambiance and atmosphere of the restaurant has always been warm and welcoming. The food is always excellent and the service is top notch. While the cost is not unreasonable for what you receive, this is not a low-end restaurant. I would recommend to anyone who... More

Silva's is a unique historic building with a period decor, a pretty decent menu and a very attentive staff. If you're looking for something different with a historic feel, Silva's is worth the short drive east of Elk Grove on Grant Line Road. I've been there several times and have not had a single disappointing experience.

We usually go here for our anniversary or some celebration. Food is always FANTASTIC....love the presentation AND the quality of the food. Pricy for a "regular go out to eat" but very nice for special occasions! We have never been disappointed!

I have lived in the area a long time and ate at the Sheldon Inn many, many times. Food is alwyas good, consistant, menu is always the same with the exceptions of a few specials but they are cycled through as well (Try the Rib Eye). Great Bar for drinks and social atmosphere, Eat at the Bar is accepted as... More

I have been going to Silva's Sheldon Inn for the past decade and never thought to review it on Trip Advisor. It is, by far, my favorite restaurant in the Sacramento area. Chef Doug Silva grows most of the herbs and many of the vegetables on sight so everything is always fresh. The menu changes with the season but always... More

Everybody mentions this place when we ask about date night....expensive!,Just ok staff, the food was yucky...my husband was not impressed either. We didn't eat all the food and didn't stay for dessert because we were afraid it would be just as bad as the meal. Maybe if I had a few glasses of wine it would have been better. Old... More

Been back three times in the last month! Don't eat anywhere more than three or four times a year. Great service. The food was awesome, the stuffed pork chop is the something you'll dream about. Stuffed with bacon and apples with a special apple gravy. Usually no or very little waiting to be seated on weekdays. Don't go on Sunday... More

Love the country setting, the restored building; the decor and atmosphere; delicious food but don't go very often because it's a little pricey for my budget.
