Avoid. The reviews were right on the money. The place is a run down and needs to be sold. This family has taken every dime out of the place and has put nothing back. Its time to sell and have these spoiled kids get a real job and start earning a honest living. My wife said the place is a meat market and not a place to take a family. The place has been known for years for a place to go if you want to run numbers or make a bet. I don't know about you but I don't want to take my family to a place like this. A place like this doesn't belong in Farmington!
Service and food were disappointing. Table was dirty, food was average at best. Service was subpar, We won't return. Ownership certainly doesn't take pride in this bar/restaurant. This was our second and final trip to the Silo. I don't understand how they can afford to stay in business.
In a world of ever changing fads and choices it is always interesting to reflect on how good consistancy and longevity can feel, let alone taste.
The Silo Resttaurant certainly knows about longevity and consitancy, and it certainly tastes good.
A fixture to weary travelers passing thru the Town of Farmington or simply a place where locals know the food is always delicious, The Silo boasts a wide array of entre classics and very edible family fair served in friendly surroundings and overseen by family and friends.
The Main Dinning Room is open yet intimate, allowing for business lunch or dinners or Family affairs without feeling either conspicuous or hemmed in.
The wait staff for the most part seem to have found a home since the times that I have been there the faces don't seem to be different which to me seems to bring a feeling of hominess to the already elegant and personal atmosphere.
It has been sad that "one should often give more thought to where one eats, than to what ones eats".
At the Silo, you can have it all.
A very broad menu of choices in entre's or deserts provides ample chances to savor world class yet distinctly simple dishes, served with an understated, yet fairly complete choice of wines.
I tend to stick with the world of what I know but the Silo makes that requirement an easy one. The owners are always there and the hours of operation are as reliable as the sun. Best of all, the service and food remains stable and simple.
I had heard that the place was being sold but I was assured that they were open for business and intended to stay that way.
A good choice for either business or pleasure.
The Silo seems an easy choice, and one that rewards consistancy with taste and coziness.
Wonderful Dining Experience. As they say, don't judge a book by its cover, as is so true in these reviews. We recently visited this restaurant and found it to be OUTSTANDING! From the moment we arrived to the time we left the food was excellent, the staff and management were very courteous, what more could you ask for? I must say this restaurant was very clean, I saw no no filth as mentioned in other reviews, why must people be so vindictive? Come and see for yourself and you will be pleasantly surprised by the decor, superb food and the hospitality of the management and staff.
Wonderful food and very attentive wait staff. After having read the reviews of the Silo on this site, I was skeptical about going but some friends talked me into joining them last Friday night. I must say that I was very pleasantly surprised! We ordered a ceasar salad, steak Diane, and bananas foster, all three expertly prepared tableside by the manager and all 3 were wonderful! I ordered the linguini with white clam sauce. It came loaded with clams and was the best I've ever had! I found Gary the manager to be very friendly and professional, not at all what I've read here. My friends, who have dined there on many occasons were shocked when I told them what had been written about him here. They seem to draw a nice after-work crowd on Friday's in the lounge and many of them appeared to be regulars. I will definitely be returning!
Gambling joint. If you like gambling places, bookies, and running numbers this place is for you. A real mans bar. Very Italian
Filthy unfriendly depressing dive. The man that manages this place has really driven it into the ground over the past 20 years. A little spoiled brat that inherited everything from mommy and daddy however never worked an honest day in his life. This manager is a slovenly creature too. He's rude, sexist, and filthy
Unfriendly, and dirty. This place is a cheap meat market. Save yourself the headache. Every time we ordered drinks they arbitrarily charged us a different amount. Unprofessional.
Sleazy bar, I won't return. I went to this bar after getting out've work a few years back, with a few other girlfriends. That was a mistake. The pudgy little owner wouldn't leave us alone, he kept hitting on us despite the fact we showed no interest in him. Never again. Sleaze joint. The Silo is truly a slovenly rundown environment.
Subpar food, and customer service.. Such ludicrous and nonsensical diatribe posted by this owner and her friend here in Citysearch. I see two people both taking part in the denigration and agreement of something indiscernible. That aside, during a recent business gathering at the Silo Restaurant, I found both service, and food at best mediocre, the ambience was uncomfortable for a few of us.
