Good service. Good food, nice atmosphere. Recommend getting the crunchy snap peas appetizers and the prosciutto wrapped cod. The other dishes we ordered were ok. The bread before service was cold. Would recommend getting a table near the windows. Loved the old building ambiance and the overall decor.

We enjoyed the food and drink from Silverwater on a recent trip to PT. We attended a film in the theater above while enjoying the libations and snacks from Silverwater Cafe.

When I expressed unfamiliarity with two wine choices, she brought me samples of both wines. This restaurant is in an old building downtown, in an attractive block with parking on the... More

We went for lunch on Sunday. Partner had a Reuben that was tasty. I ordered shrimp and crab with a side salad. The salad had multiple rotten leaves in it, but I was really hungry so I ate around them. When I showed the waitress, she said the cook had been trying to pick out the rotten leaves but she... More

My partner and I are regulars at the mezzaluna bar upstairs and eat there often. Our favorite is the rack of lamb that is perfect to share, making it extremely affordable as well. Quality of meat is outstanding and perfectly prepared; the reduction sauce is so good you really want to lick the plate! Other favorites are the seared ahi,... More

I just had lunch at the Silverware Cafe. The ambience is quite nice. It is an older building that looks inviting on the outside and very pleasant on the inside. I had the crab and shrimp melt. It was a serving of crab and shrimp salad and a slice of tomato on an English muffin. It was topped with a... More

Have been here for lunch a few times. Love the tea selection (generally not a tea person). Crab and shrimp melt was fantastic!! Plan on dinner soon. Our server Claire was very attentive even though the place was busy!

The fish and chips are amazing, wonderful breading. The cod and shrimp are super delicious! Wish I would have room for the chocolate molten cake.
