“Fantastic dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We had a great business dinner at Silo. They provided a private room for us. The service was excellent. The waiter was very attentive.
The food was superb. The chicken fried oysters were excellent. My lamb was very good and my wife's pork shank was amazing.
We also had dessert. My cheese cake was light and creamy. The wicked monkey coffee was delicious.

“Not their best night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

I like Silo. Went there last night with wife, Greated by name. Table next to a loud party. Bread came and it was all a cheese bread (I don't eat dairy) and it is usually mixed with other breads. Asked for other breads and told they were in oven. Then later told that wheat bread was gone. The salad that I ordered came out without the type of lettus it was to have (it was tasty though). Ordered Tuna medium (yes I know you are suppose to eat it rare but I don't like it that way). Well it came out very rare. I sent it back and it came out very well done. O'well. The manager came by and said sorry and picked up the check - the sign of a very good restraurant that knows that sometimes they don't get things right. By the way my wife's quail was great. We will be back and recommend that you go too (usually great food),

“THE EARLY BIRD GETS THE WORM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

The early bird or prix fixe dinner which must be ordered before 6:30 p.m. Is not only some of the best food in town but it is the best buy around. The coconut cream pie is better than high school love but the souffles are excellent also. It can be booked on OpenTable.

“Unexpected delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Trully an amazing culinary experience. The Oysters were OMG delicious! Cuisine and presentation reminded me of an elegant dining experience I had in France. An excellent selection of wines. Knowledgeable,courteous,attentive staff. Went with a small group and was pleasantly surprised that we were actually afforded the opportunity to enjoy our meal as well as each others company in a fairly quite isolated room (Reserved). The only significant pitfall was a band playing downstairs (speakers at maximum) after 9:00 pm. There's nothing like trying to hold a pleasant conversation but being forced to yell into your friends ear :o( extremely disappointing.. Group is already planning to return . Only... This time we'll dine earlier and ensure we depart before excessive noise ensues from the downstairs bar area.

“Unique spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

This is a pretty cool trendy place. Bar area downstairs and the restaurant upstairs. Nice selection of meals and wines. The service was excellent! Although I would have appreciated management taking control of a loud and annoying group.
