The decor isn't cutting edge. No fine china. Just great home cooking once a month. The staff, particularly Julie, is attentive, fast, friendly, outgoing and quick to make you feel like family.

Cafe Silvestre (3300 so.) is still my personal go-to restaurant for Mexican food here in SLC. Notice I said "personal". It's a friendly little restaurant, and I like the food. I'm not a foodie, and I've never been to Mexico, so I probably wouldn't know "authentic" Mexican food if it fell in my lap, but I like theirs. I find... More

This seems to be a popular family-owned local restaurant. The prices are very reasonable and the food was good and plentiful. As the burritos were only about $3 each, I assumed they were small and ordered the platter of three. How wrong I was! They were huge and there was no way I could finish them. I would have been...

We ascended on the restaurant with 6 little ones, and about 8 adults! They did a great job! They got every ones order done with a smile. Kids were running around everywhere, and the waitress was having to dodge toddlers. No grumpiness, no put outedness, they were wonderful. I really like the chicken fajitas. They had a very smoky flavor... More

Not knowing what to expect, I was very pleasantly surprised to find such helpful staff, delicious food and all for a fantastic price. The chili verde burrito was very large for my small appetite, but it was so flavorful that I ate it all....and the chicken burrito that came with the special!! I'll definitely eat there again when in the... More

I grew up in So Ca so I have a particular palate for Mexican cuisine. This is a pretty Americanized version, bland and for those who don't want it too fancy. Some of my Utah friends like it though.

I've eaten here a few times. It's not the best Mexican food I've ever eaten but it is consistently good. The wait staff ways friendly and eager to allow special orders. It's a great value.

I have gone to Cafe Silvestre for over 20 years. They have the very best enchiladas in the world. I always have a cheese enchilada, a smothered with chili verde burrito, and a homemade tamale. It's excellent!

I hate to agree with some of the other poor reviews of this place but I'm afraid I have to. This is below average mexican food. I'm not sure why anyone would go here when Cafe Rio is within walking distance. Even nearby Citris Cafe has better mexican food and they're not a mexican restaurant. The one pleasant surprise with...

The food is awful! Bland and uninspired.. I would never go back. Like someone said, there has to be a Taco Bell up the street.
