 (Washington DC)·Dined 2 days ago

The restaurant was selected due to its proximity to the Silver Spring Metro station for this particular dinner – a good meal is always guaranteed at the 8407 kitchen bar.

 (Richmond)·Dined on December 26, 2016

We went the day after Christmas for our anniversary. The upstairs dining area was less than half full and very quiet. The semi-circular sofa table made for a cozy, private feeling. The Steak Diane was delicious (tender and slightly sweet). The ribeye was average, nothing special. The portions were filling but left us room for dessert. Prices seem average for slightly upscale restaurants in the DC area. Highly recommend for a date night (though we saw several babies and young kids, so it could work for a family dinner).

My daughter and I go to 8407 when she is in country but always on Christmas Eve for dinner. It might not seen scenic to many but the lights and busy-ness of DTSS is scenic from 8407's big windows.

My only issue was the food was not served hot. I think we may have gotten sandwiched in between a large group of people and the food may have been sitting in the kitchen for some time before it was delivered to our table. It was very tasty I must say

 (Denver)·Dined on December 3, 2016

Last minute choice that worked out very well. We were in Silver Spring for a family event and met two other relatives at our hotel. We'd thought that they had made dinner arrangements, but they had not. A quick Open Table search led us to 8407. It was all good. Good food, pleasant service, good beer, wine and drinks list. Reasonable value. Not a special event, super fine dining experience, but very good. I'd go back.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on December 1, 2016

This used to be our go to place up to about two years ago. After major changes with the chefs, management and bartenders we stopped going. I went to see if we could make this our Christmas Eve restaurant again. I was sorely disappointed and will not be returning. I came for a late lunch and made an open table reservation. Although this was acknowledged by the hostess she originally wanted to sit me downstairs near the bar. When I reiterated I had a reservation she walked me upstairs. There were maybe three tables taken - yet it took several minutes to get water and menu and more than 10 minutes to have my order taken. I had to ask for bread and no one came by to top off water or ask about anything until right before I finished my meal. My deviled eggs which used to be great were meh as was the bolognese. I was hoping I could make this one of my neighborhood restaurants again. As I mentioned earlier I don't see us going back again.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on November 19, 2016

The ambiance was nice. The food though was hit or miss. One of the two entrees was literally inedible. It was gnocci, which is largely difficult to make inedible. An appetizer we did not send back, but the flavoring was not evenly mixed so you'd have one extremely salty bite followed by a tasteless one.

Had a great brunch with very good selections and 3 courses + drink for $29. Generous portions and very attentive service. Marred only by reception area downstairs in entry. One employee having bad (or good?) day entertained other staff with slamming items and doors and dropping f -bombs. Off-putting and not a good introduction to the establishment.

This is my favorite in Silver Spring! I love the atmosphere, with its many different locations in one, and the food is excellent. It's great that they've added to the menu of sandwich and non-entree options -- the burger is one of the best you'll find, and I love that there are now tacos! The entrees are beautifully done as well. There are also great beer choices (on tap and in bottles), which we consider to be a very important factor. Enjoy!

These guys were way out of rhythm for brunch. I have had few problems in previous visits for brunch, but this time they were really understaffed. We had to ask for everything twice and the servers were literally running across the dining room trying to keep up. They need to hire a few more people for brunch service.
