It’s been a while since I’ve been to the Silver Diner, and I’ve noticed that they have really done a lot to improve the quality of food. They have an outstanding menu, and from what I’ve seen, they have something for everyone. However, for those people with particular tastes, it may be difficult to decipher gluten-free menu items, or even vegetarian dishes. One can taste the difference in the produce because it is locally-grown. Their salads are on the money, especially the summer citrus salad. They should re-name this to be a fruit salad! It has strawberries, cranberries, mango slices, and walnuts. This is all contained within a base spinach salad. The citrus vinaigrette dressing made the salad even healthier! They have a laid back environment where you can bring your friends for milkshakes or even your entire family. By the way, the milkshakes are real ice cream and they mix it right in front of you if you sit at the counter. The wait list tends to move quickly and the overall prices are on the low to moderate end. It’s a great family restaurant for everyone to enjoy!

First I want to say the waitress that waited our table was very good and very proffesional. She was the very best part and only good part of our expierience at the Silver Diner in Reston, Va. We walked in and were impressed by the very nice decor and the cleanliness of the environment. First impression was this was going to be a nice expierience. Then while looking at the Menu we were both a bit distracted. I couldn't really find the flow of it. It seemed a bit disorganized and maybe a few readings of it would start to make sense but should you have to make sense of the menu? The flow of it was almost frustrating. But also the noise level made it a bit difficult to focus. The radio was abit loud, the volume from the patrons was a loud hum and on top of that one of the servers was Vacuming with a vacum that had this REALLY, REALLY high pitched whine that left a ringing in my ears for several minutes after it was shut off. The expierience is beggining to decline but we are still looking forward to a great meal! We were starved and hunger makes for a great sauce. We both decided on a burger. I ordered a medium cooked burger and the person I was with ordered a medium well burger. Mine came out Ok... a little undercooked but I was willing to live with it as I do enjoy a bit of pink in my burger but the person I was with wanted Medium well and was served a nearly rare burger! The manager comes over and gives a half hearted attempt to redeem the kitchens mistake by offering to cook it more... It was requested medium well, my companion says "I do not want a grey, tuff piece of ground meat, just no pink. The manager replies ""Ok WELL done then". What came back was a GREY, VERY TUFF piece of ground beef.. All faith lost now, the person I'm with doesn't trust to order anything else off the menu as they can't get a burger anywhere near correct what faith is there that they can get anything else right... No thank you just bring the check please. My belief is that this "Healthy menu" is a great idea but not neccesarily fresh. The burger patties or more then likely preformed frozen patties that are brought in which is why the inconsistancy in cooking them. Not properly thawed therefore resulting in undercooked burger's and GW no stomach problems from eating unproperly thawed meats. Most places that don't get it right and the food is so so I would just move on and let it go but the following is what instigates me to leave this review: The manager that handled our table was complaining to their staff about our table not being satified with what we were served. Then members of staff that did not serve our table, cook our food, or have any contact with us, were openly and LOUDLY speaking to each other, in Spanish, about our table. Very Unprofessional but, people can be imature and unproffesional, especially when their management is no better. But as they spoke they started feeling impowered by each others approval and the things they said became more and more derogatory, crude and truly disgusting about my companion and myself. I truly have never been so insulted by an establishment in my life. Eventually they made eye contact with us and realized that indeed the "Gringos" did understand them and they started back stepping and changed there tone very quickly. Needles to say it did not result in a pleasent expierience, but one I definatly will not repeat at the Silver Diner. Hopefully it is just the Reston location that has such an unprofessional staff and this was just the wrong day to be there.

I love this place...I go there all the time and the food and service are always excellent. Plus, they serve a great variety of food so everyone can always find something they like to eat. Two thumbs up!

Two stars because service was good, but the food was very disappointing. Nothing was hot. The potatoes tasted like they'd been cooked a few days ago and put in the fridge, then taken out this morning to warm up to room temperature. The biscuit was so cold that the butter we put on them as soon as our plates arrived never melted. We will not be back.

Got the salmon sliders entree. Order of 3. When they arrived at the table, I couldn't believe how small the portion was. It almost wouldn't qualify as an appetizer. For more than FIFTEEN dollars, it was a total rip-off.

I would have given 4.5 stars based on selection of healthy choices, and generally great food. Earlier this week I had a fantastic roasted vegetable salad with grilled chicken on top. I loved it so much, I had my husband pick up another salad to bring to work. When I got the salad, the chicken wasn't undercooked, but was RAW. The outside had slight grill marks, but otherwise it was a completely raw chicken breast in my salad. I couldn't believe someone actually cut that up and placed it on top of a salad. I spoke with the manager, who nonchalantly offered to send gift certificates and didn't act the least bit concerned about the health risks or fact that we paid close to $40 for 2 inedible salads. If the person who cut this chicken breast did not realize the breast was raw, and still served it to a customer, I have to wonder what other abhorrent health regulations they are violating that are not so obvious. Absolutely disgusted. You lost a loyal customer today.

over priced for a glorified fast food diner.
