I enjoyed a very nice lunch with friends at Silo. I was good to sit outdoors on a sunny day and enjoy the view across the harbour. Service was friendly, professional and welcoming. I had the beer battered fish (Mahi Mahi on this day) - a large meal for lunch but a good size for dinner. The fish was beautifully... More

We ate here last night and usually the food is great however this time my main of Kingfish was raw in the middle so I advised the waitress who put the fish on a small plate and took it back to be re-cooked. It was then delivered to me to finish the meal. I had no great problem with this... More

NewcastleMark, General Manager at Silo Restaurant and Lounge Bar, responded to this review

Dear pabnming, I am sorry your Kingfish was undercooked, and yes the waitress should have taken the plate away to have chef recook the meal and return , that is our policy. Your waitress is currently undergoing training and wasn't aware of our policy and procedure for this. I can assure you that this will not happen again. Thank you... More

I dined here last Thursday evening for a work meeting. The venue was great for sitting quietly and discussing business at it was a quiet night. We all enjoyed the food but I found the menu a little uninteresting. I need a menu that I look through and find it hard to decide what to eat. This keeps me coming... More

We decided to have dinner somewhere at Honeysuckle prior to a show at the Civic and Silo turned out to be an excellent choice. We sat outside, which was lovely watching the twinkling of the lights on the harbour, whilst staying warm, thanks to the gas heaters. Our friendly waiter ensured our meals were delivered in plenty of time for... More

Our family of 4 ate here on Sunday morning, a little frosty but that's to be expected at this time of year. The breakfast came out in about 20mins and there was a good portion size for each. I would recommend this place to anyone after a nice breakfast.

Silo lounge was recommended to me when I travelled to Newcastle recently. My experience was disappointing to say the least. Outside the friendly staff, the restaurant did not represent value for money and the dining experience was a let down for me. My expectations were that this was to be a cool funky eatery, relaxed and friendly, well the relaxed... More

Hi BrizzieCol, I am glad that you enjoyed the location,friendly staff and relaxed waterfront setting, but I am sorry you feel the food let you down,and was expensive. Menu prices are always a sensitive issue, and I can assure you that a lot of time is invested into designing a menu that offers not only the best quality produce, but... More
