This restaurant is "cozy" meaning you can be sitting close enough to the adjacent table to share dishes. But that is the only minor slight Otherwise, this tapas menu is inspired and draws from several different influences. Every dish we tried was a great experience and the wine list complemented the food nicely Service was attentive and helpful with suggestions... More

You might never have experienced this kind of dining within the United States, or if you have, it was probably a special time and a special meal. The Silk Road is a cozy, but interesting venue with plenty of atmosphere, including delightful aromas coming from the kitchen. Service is friendly and prompt as your server explains how it all works.... More

We had one of the best dinners at The Silk Road last night! The cauliflower was to die for! The togarashi (spelling may not be correct) was fantastic and the schnitzel is always one of my favorites. The Message in a bottle wine from Sting (yes, the singer) and his wife's Tuscan vineyard was absolutely perfect. Great service and great... More

We've continued to visit this restaurant over the years since my last review. It has never failed to impress! We have also attended a wine tasting dinner which was excellent. The chef provided very good dishes to heighten the tastes of the wine. We asked the owner last night about any upcoming dinners and were delighted to hear about a... More

We were attracted by the restaurant's unique concept: tapas style food from all around the world. We had to wait for a table which was fine, but we weren't impressed by the fact that the man we assumed to be the manager neglected to take our drink orders as we were sat at the unbusy bar. His companions showed up... More

Local tapas with changing menu of international dishes. Portions for the small plates are definitely small - think 4-6 bites. It's a fun experience, and gives the opportunity to taste things you might be hesitant to order as a full portion. Most fun with a few friends and a bottle of wine.

My husband and I went here for dinner while we were in town, and it was delicious. All of their food is appetizer style, small plates, so you get to taste a lot of different things (especially if your dinner companions share). I was very impressed by the variety of styles and flavors. Chinese, American, European, African....and all flavorful and... More

Tapas place with small exotic dishes made from spices from all around the world. I ordered 2 dishes and they were both very good. They were so different than traditional restaurant fare. Great atmosphere and décor. I was a bit disappointed at the service, though. I was a single party and felt a bit ignored. The hostess was able to... More

Serving tapas size items is a great way to taste a little of so much without getting full first. Our dinner was with another couple and we had several appetizers, entrees and a dessert along with a flight of wine. Our choices were from a variety of ethic/countries and made for a very enjoyable meal. Atmosphere was wonderful and we... More
