We have lived in the area for over 25 years and this was our first visit. Our dinners were excellent. The Portuguese bean soup was a rich, tomato based, slightly spicy broth with red beans and kale. It was served very hot. The mixed green salad was a typical mixture of lettuce, shredded carrots, onions and tomato. The service was... More

Not sure what happened but tonight service was crazy slow. 10/2/15 My husband and I had a wonderful dinner. It was really nice to be able to have a full course meal, not feel rushed, and have excellent service. Food was amazing. I especially loved the creme brulee. We will definitely be back! 8/28/15

Recently changed ownership and opened up the patio. Went there to celebrate friend's birthday. They her name at the top of their daily specials that made her day! We ordered a few appetizers.

Visiting my family in the area and they suggested this restaurant. We learned there is a new owner and a lot of cosmetic changes have taken place. The bathroom was beautiful and clean. However, the service was very, very slow. It appeared they were understaffed. The food was good. My husbands steak was undercooked and my Uncle said his veggies... More

Seven of us visited Silva's Sheldon Inn on a Tuesday night for dinner. The food was outstanding. Everyone was happy with the entrees - salmon, beef liver, stuffed pork chop, pasta Bolognese. Very delicious mushroom soup. The only downer of the night was our server. He was completely disinterested in us and seemingly his job. We are big eaters and... More

Portuguese food. The food is so good. I love their apple stuffed pork chop. Steaks are great. It is a little out of my way, which is unfortunate, due to the difficulty in getting friends and family to come out. But they do admit that the food is high quality, especially for Elk Grove. Silva's is a restaurant that existed... More

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
