Two couples together sharing an anniversary dinner. Both of us thought the Silver Salmon Grille was the place to try. It sounded romantic with high quality food and service. Two of us ordered the fresh chinook topped with Dungeness crab; it was some of the best salmon I have had - and I have had quite a bit. Another had a smaller salmon; also excellent, but not quite as good. The fourth had a Dungeness Crab Louie and liked it very much. There was also a Dungeness crab appetizer that was very good. So for salmon and crab, this place is hard to surpass.

We had a very competent young waiter who rolled with our jests and returned nicely in kind. Service was excellent. This place would get five stars on food and service.

The lights were dimmed and supposedly romantic, and I guess it worked somewhat. But the paper tablecloth that soaked up the condensation on the outside of our drinks was cheap and disconcerting to all four of us. One would think that an upscale restaurant could do better than that.

The service was excellent and the food was great. Stick with seafood and you can't go wrong! We will go back there any time we are in town. It is only 1 and 1/2 drive from Portland. Any excuse to go to the beach is a good one!

My husband and I had different dishes and both were AMAZING! I had a salmon that had the Silver Salmon Seafood Trio - so good! My husband had a speciality dish that had grilled salmon, smoked pork, crab, in pasta and wow! His was incredible. The service was excellent and the restaurant was nice and quaint. If we ever pass through here again, we will be stopping here again. This place is pricey but well worth the money, at least it was for us.

We also had been sightseeing around Astoria and went to the Column, and decided to give the coupon on the back of the Column's parking ticket a try. The restaurant had also been advertised in one of the local tour books we picked up, and we decided a trip to the Northwest wasn't complete without having salmon at least once. Ours were grilled just right - not dry and not raw, and the seasoning complemented the flavor of the fish. There was a decent selection of Oregon wines and beer from the bar (something else we prefer from local sources), and the waitresses were attentive to our needs. This restaurant is on the main street through Astoria, and located among numerous other eating establishments; we were glad we picked this one for dinner that evening.
