Not a great dining experiencing. At least half of our party's food was cold and I think the other half did not want to admit that. Banana stuffed french toast was not even cooked. eggs were cold. Waitress overcharged us and took 2 more attempts to properly correct our bill. I don't mean to be picky but hot food should... More

This is a great breakfast place. They have gf pancakes and French toast. We ate here twice and the servers were aware of gf options. They are marked on the menu. Very tasty!

Great for breakfast but not so good later in the day. Lots of gimmicky recipes and peculiar combinations. Too pricey for what is offered.

The lunch was a sandwich and salad that was good as any fine restaurant. The server was friendly and patient as we asked specific questions on menu items and took care of one persons dietary requirement for their food. Yummy.

I generally don't like to review restaurant chains, but Silver Diner is different. It is a classic American diner with locations in Virginia, Maryland, and New Jersey. My wife and I go there often for dinner, but we also love it for breakfast and lunch. Like all great diners, you can order breakfast throughout the day. The menu has something... More

We had lunch before leaving DC here with a friend and her two pre-teen kids. The kids loved playing with the jukebox at the table and the menu options were good for accommodating kids and adults. We had eaten at other Silver Diners, the one on Wilson, and this one was much better and the service was much better.

My husband and I ate breakfast at the Silver Diner in Reston, VA. We thought it was packed with customers because parking was completely full but we did not wait at all. The food was delicious and served promptly and efficiently. I am always wary of breakfast places because they are usually sticky and not clean but the Silver Diner... More

As diners go, it just doesn't get any better than this one. Always busy, but always friendly and accommodating. Essentially farm to table food - they rely on numerous local producers. Also, extremely sensitive to dietary needs. They will prepare just about any way you request. All the traditional diner offerings, but many higher end options like Bison, and special... More

I take the family here sometimes for a 2nd breakfast on the weekends. The kids love the menu and the have several favorite items. We all like the retro dinner look and the personal coin fed juke boxes on the table. The restaurant sources local food and has plenty of gluten free and vegetarian options. Definitely worth checking out!
