“A nice restaurant”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

I ate here a couple of months ago. They serve many different types of food but the food and service is great. The restaurant is on Fenton street which does not receive a great deal of foot traffic so its easy to miss but the staff is excellent and so is the food. I have eaten there several times and never walked away disappointed. The atmosphere is casual and great for dates or couples who just want get great food at decent prices.

“Modest and established restaurant with excellent food”
Reviewed July 5, 2011

I took my mom to this restaurant for her birthday. We were very pleasantly surprised. Although this restaurant has been in Silver Spring for such a long time, we had not had the opportunity to eat there before. The food and service were definitely above average.

“Superb. What a joy to find a throwback that does it so well.”
Reviewed February 5, 2011

Despite living in Silver Spring for years, we had never been here. It was just great. Not much to criticize (ceiling could use some work), but the service was impeccable and the food was great. Enormous, too; we brought two meals home. It's got a salad bar (loved it, especially the stuffed grape leaves), good wine list, and the food was excellent and obviously not cooked ahead of time. Sinatra and Bobby Darin at exactly the right volume in the background, lighting excellent and original art for sale in the alcoves on the walls. What's not to like? It's a throwback with lots of older folks (I guess that includes me), but we had a great time. I guess it's been there for nearly 40 years, and that says something. Sergio's is our favorite restaurant in Silver Spring, but we have a new second place. We'll be back.
