My wife and I had the "chicken fried oysters", which were very good, and presented in a very professional way. Our waitress was "a kick", and everyone in the place made an effort to be neighborly, while be very efficient.

This place has a great ambiance, the staff is well trained but the food was not at the level of the restaurant. On the other hand they have a bar downstairs that is amazing and the live performance is outstanding

The food was very good as was the service. I had the shrimp and grits and it was perfect--very tasty without being too spicy. My husband had the pork loin which he reported was cooked just right. The web site said casual but we felt underdressed in our jeans after a full day of sightseeing. However, that didn't seem to matter. We had reservations but it didn't seem like that was critical for a week night. Would definitely return for another dinner.

We made reservations for our anniversary dinner on OpenTable. They do not allow BYOW due to their licensing? Anyway, we wanted to bring a bottle from France (my hubby brought back), but it wasn't an option. Oh well, they do have an extensive wine menu so we didn't have issue finding something suitable.

Upon arrival, valet was complimentary and the hostess welcomed us and wishes us a Happy Anniversary. We went up to the restaurant via elevator and were greeted and seated and wished a Happy Anniversary again. This was nice and made us feel special.

The food was well-plated and delicious. Each item on the menu seemed well thought out and appropriate fine dining fare. We started with the oysters. Delicious! A little too much sauce but that was easily remedied by taking a bit off the top. They were a nice start. I ordered the scallops and my husband ordered the grouper special of the evening. We ended up trading mid meal (we typically do this...to get the best of the experience when we dine.) The fish was the best I have had since we lived in FL (next door to a deep sea fisherman!) Very impressed with the preparation and accompaniments (butternut squash and pea risotto was filling and lovely.)

One thing we weren't particularly keen on was our server. Her attitude was a bit assertive and jovial, but she was a bit more intense than we like. It just felt odd that she talked so much when giving us or food and wasn't able to read our conversation well. This may sound petty, but after dining at numerous fine dining establishments, the server usually makes a point to make the experience as enjoyable as possible. We didn't quite get that. She was passionate about the food it seemed and that was nice. It just didn't make us feel comfortable the way she spoke to us. We weren't offered a glass of complimentary champagne or a dessert as other TA members posted about. No big deal.

Overall, the food and ambiance were very enjoyable.

The ambiance is stunning, this is an elegant and vibrant setting!! We ordered appetizers, the pork belly and chicken fried oysters. The oysters stole the show and I understand why they are famous here. They were juicy and delicious! We also ordered the spinach salad and a wedge salad, both really good. I'm not sure I'm a huge fan of the fried brie in the spinach salad, though. My husband had the salmon entree and it was cooked perfectly. I had sauteed shrimp, again, it was perfect and delicious. Our server also recommended an excellent bottle of wine. We loved everything about this restaurant and our service was impeccable!

Thank you for taking the time to write us such a wonderful review. We love our oysters, too! We are thrilled that you loved your salads and sauteed shrimp, and that your husband enjoyed his salmon. We appreciate that you gave us feedback on the fried brie in our spinach salad, which we will forward along to our chefs to make any necessary improvements to the dish. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed all the things that Silo Elevated Cuisine has to offer, from our food to our service, and we look forward to serving you again soon!
