Just like Mama's

After going here twice I can confirm if you don't have an Armenian Mom to cook for you, this is the next best thing. Pilaf is buttery and tasty, meats are just right and the service is nice and the prices are easy to take.

When I travel I try to support local businesses. Silver Skewers was my one of my choices during a recent visit to Waldorf and I have to say I was more than pleased with the experience. Service was wonderful, atmosphere was pleasant and the food was excellent. My colleague was very apprehensive about going to a non chain restaurant, he... More

Delicious food, nice staff-- a little odd of a location but not noticed once seated. Make sure to call ahead of you want the combination dish as it is almost always sold out. I've been many times and will continue to go when I'm in the area.

I have been to this place for both personal and business meals. Overall, food and service are usually pretty good. However, once in a while - the service is very slow when it isn't even busy in the restaurant. The food is also pricey for what you get BUT I think it is worth the cost when the service is... More

Good food, great service. Rib eye was very tender and melted in your mouth. Waitress was very nice and attentive. Definitely will be returning in the future.

The food was average at best. They don't serve alcohol, which is fine, except we waited almost an hour for our food, and having a cocktail or 2 would have passed the time. We kept asking about our food and there was no apology or reason given for the wait. They just kept filling our water glasses and smiling. I... More

My business partner and I (from NYC and MA) were in the area and read the reviews. Wonderfully surprised. A family run restaurant with great, interestingly flavoured food, beautifully presented, and served by a sparkly hostess. The homemade Baklava was the best I've ever had.
