Great food and nice server. We have eaten here many times on our visits to Silverthorn. Our last visit was less then appetizing though. We had been here this same week with a great experience during the happy hour, but today when we ordered, we...were told we were getting "well" drinks via the happy hour, but when the bill came we were surprised by that the drinks were much higher priced then we were charged on our last visit . We had just ordered the same drinks a few days ago at the discounted price. When we informed our waiter, he apologized and said he would talk to the manager to see if they could remove a drink as an apology for the miscommunication. Instead of apologizing, the manager came over and all but accused me of lying about our bill on our previous visit. He was very rude. I explained that I did not know how they rang up their drinks, and I was just letting him know how we were charged on our last visit. We payed the full price just so as not to cause a problem. The server then returned an apologized for the actions of his boss. Great food and drinks, just need better communication and a much better manager.More

Hi Caleb, I'm sorry for the confusion during your visit. There was a mistake on your original ticket which caused the discrepancy. I apologize for the misunderstanding.

The seafood linguine pasta was amazing! Made me feel like I was in Italy! It’s that good! Service was good and the ambiance is great. We sat outside right by the river. We will go back to this place over and over. We just went...yesterday and thinking about going again today!More

Thanks for the great feedback! I'm glad you enjoyed the Linguini Pescatore, some of my other favorites are the Rigatoni Sausage and Penne Gorgonzola. We look forward to your next visit.

We chose this restaurant based on the positive reviews, especially for service. Unfortunately we were disappointed on that front. We reserved our table days in advance via Yelp; we requested a table (on the patio near the river if possible) and we also noted in...our reservation we were there to celebrate a birthday. When we arrived, though, we were sat at the WORST table — indoors by the window, which would have been OK if that was all, but it was right next to convergence of the open kitchen, the bathroom, and the servers’ till. And when I say “right next,” I mean 2 feet away from them where they cluster at the back of the restaurant. (WHY have a table there, for heaven’s sake!) It was really distracting and rude to have servers bustling by without any regard for us sitting there trying to enjoy a nice meal and conversation. They were overly chatty with one another and loud (and taking off their masks) and they even repeatedly reached behind me to store their trays only inches behind my head. I feel badly for anyone seated in this horribly placed table. We also had to wait about 30 minutes for our family pasta order, which added to the disappointment. Pasta doesn’t take that long to cook, as a manager at Sauce on the Maggie confirmed for me the following night. Thankfully, the penne alla vodka was delicious — so that somewhat made up for the subpar dining experience. The family portion definitely gives you your money’s worth. Hopefully you get a better table than we did!More

Hello, I'm sorry about your unfortunate table positioning. That is typically one of our cocktail tables, but due to the current environment, we've spread all of our dinner tables out as much as possible, which leads to some of them being sat at the edges....More

A great Italian restaurant with a great setting on the river. We were inside overlooking the river but if available their outside patio is very nice with heaters. Have quite a few options including pizza. Extensive wine list and nightly specials. If you like Italian...food this is a great choice and the atmosphere along the river is exceptional.More

We went in with a party of 8. Right off the waitress was a pro, and we enjoyed her very much. We all got drinks and apps. The mussels are fantastic! Our entrees were all delicious. The “Family” size portions are definitely the way to...go to get the best bang for your buck. The happy hour is a bit weak in terms of pricing. $1 off cocktails, $5 glass of wine (only two choices of wine), and $7 apps. Probably wouldn’t go back for happy hour. However, the waiter was awesome.More

Our neighbor recommended this place. So tonight we give it a go! Excellent all around. The waitress was lovely and very helpful. You need to wear your mask till you’re seated & if you get up and move around. The bar is really cool to...see. Check out my photos. You need to make a reservation or you might not get in depending on what time you show up. The happy hours are very good apparently. It was busy tonight Wednesday. We had some nice cocktails Moscow Mule beer and manhattan’s. The we shared the house salad it was big enough for 2. Then had the ravioli which was yummy. Then shared the key lime pie. It was sooo good. It was a perfect meal. Sharing is the way to go these days😍 plenty of parking. Indoor and outdoor seating. Great place to celebrate your birthday 3 people did tonight! And everyone sang and joined in great fun 👏😂More

Thanks for enjoying happy hour on our newly expanded patio. With all of the new seating, we're still getting used to the new setup!

We stopped here for dinner after sunset. The setting is on the Blue River. You can walk down to the river. They have indoor/outdoor seating. We sat outside and had a view of the river and enjoyed the relaxing sound of the water flowing. We...ordered the caprese salad for one (easily shared with my hubby). It was yummy. I went with sea bass with garlic mashed and broccoli in a vinaigrette sauce which was really good. Probably a little more vinaigrette than I woukd prefer but very tasty. My hubby went the spaghetti Margherita with shrimp and he enjoyed his dinner. The bar inside is pretty impressive (see pic). All in all a nice experience.More
