Diner Reviews
  • "This place is great. We go here as a couple, with friends and family. The staff is personable and fun- Brad is one of our favorites. Ask him about his band. The good is fantastic- deviled eggs are a fan favorite."

  • "I miss the buffet very much. I thought it was a very good idea. My husband who had tried it, recommended me to try it. That was what I expected when I went for brunch. Too bad its no longer that way."
    Dined on 10/12/2014
  • "Took myself on a date here. Food was amazing (highly recommend the lamb chops and flourless chocolate cake). Waiter was great and very attentive without being overbearing. Highly recommend!"

  • "This is one of my go-to places for lunch in Silver Spring when meeting colleagues or clients. Terrific menu, well-executed and now with their $8.47 specials, an even better deal. I have to remember to ask for "no fries" with my sandwiches because if they come, I will eat every last one. They are always so well prepared: crisp and fabulous. I had the turkey wrap and a soup. Soup was terrific and I took home half the wrap for lunch the next day. I've never been disappointed."
    Dined on 10/10/2014
  • " Get the Duck, Wow!! It included a confit breast and a crispy fried leg quarter, which was my favorite. My friend had the Scallops and raved about them as well."

  • "This was another great trip to 8407. I met for a business lunch, he had the burger and I had the quesadilla. Delicious. Our server was very attentive and friendly."

  • "Still one of the best in SS, but the service has not been what it once was."

  • "Living and working in downtown Silver Spring, I am, of course, familiar with 8407, but had never been there for lunch. Seeking a spot for a business meeting on a Monday afternoon, I decided to try 8407, which was an amazing delight. The lunch menu has a big selection, including a list of impressive items for $8.47. My colleague had a gorgeous chicken salad wrap surrounded by crispy fries and I felt like I was stealing something by having two scrumptious and perfectly prepared Mahi Mahi tacos for $8.47. This is less than a decent salad at Whole Foods or nearby organic salad spots, I might add. We lingered undisturbed for more than 2 hours, enjoying the calm, quiet, and lovely meal. I'll be back!"

  • "Have dined here 3-4 times per year, and brought new guests with us this visit. Excellent cocktails, (unique use of bitters); creative quality food, and great service. Can't ask for more."
    Dined on 10/5/2014
  • "I love eating in this restaurant because the ambience is so inviting. And our waiter promised us an excellent evening which we thoroughly expected to have. But our experience proved to be contrary. Trying to enjoy our conversation the servers twice rudely tried to dump the entree on us while we had barely progressed with the appetizer. Then when we were ready for it, half of the duck tasted like mush and was barely edible. The other half was wonderfully rare and flavorful. As was all of the other food. But the evening which was a special celebration had been dampened by the service and the duck. Too bad. This should all be an excellent dining experience."
    Dined on 10/4/2014
  • "Sauces are revealing, & 8407 did not disappoint. We shared steamed mussels, which were large, fresh & done exactly right with abundant garlic & tasty toast. I had duck comfit - a guilty pleasure perfectly done - from the savory sauce to the crispy flavorful skin. My wife had sea scallops that were fresh and subtle. The Pinot Grigio was outstanding & a good match. The 8407 managers clearly love good food and help others enjoy it with outstanding service in a relaxing setting. You can tell when people are having fun at their job, and whoever runs this place is having a good time. Their joy is apparent and infectious. Perhaps such a fantastic place it is relatively affordable is because it is located by the idle Transit Center."

  • "The decor is contemporary and cool and the food was fantastic! Friends had been to the previous restaurants in this building and were impressed with what has been done. Service was great too! I will definitely return and have already recommended 8407 Kitchen Bar."
    Dined on 9/30/2014
  • "Has this restaurant changed owners or chef? Bad experience from the warm beer to the roasted beet salad that was full of greens, tomatoes and grapefruit and only 4 pieces of tiny red beets that tasted like they were from a jar."
    Dined on 9/27/2014
  • "Great Chicken & Rice Soup, Hamburger was dry and over cooked (I requested Med Well), French Fries were limp but they had great bread pudding for dessert. Country music was being played, I'm not a fan of country music. There was just one other table occupied so the service was fast and the waiter was very attentive. The only parking is two blocks away!"
    Dined on 9/26/2014
  • "Great place in Silver Spring, easy to meet people at since it's right next to the subway. Attractive interior with exposed brick walls. The service was good and most importantly the food is very good, modern American food. I had the duck two ways, which was so much I took some home."
    Dined on 9/24/2014
  • "We celebrated birthday there and it was a good choice. The drinks were very good. The mojito we ordered was great. The duck duo is recommended. The breast was amazing."
    Dined on 9/20/2014
  • "We had the strip steak and the trout. The food was presented nicely. The steak was a little on the rare side - requested medium rare- but okay. The trout was over cooked and dry. The bread pudding however was fantastic. The service was on the slow side. I had to asked waterboys several times to send my waiter to bring me the check and once signed I had to actually get up and start to leave to pay at the cash register downstairs before my waiter noticed me."
    Dined on 9/19/2014
  • "8407 has always been a favorite, but the service is not as good as it used to be. Our server was very friendly, but seemed to be a little lost as a waiter. He had a tendency to work on 1 table at a time which meant that there were large time blocks where I couldn't even get his attention. I had to ask for bread and water from a bus person. 1 of the 2 of them was friendly, the other not so much. The food was good and the wine that we ordered was delicious. It was a disappointing visit to what is usually one of the best restaurants in silver spring. Hopefully it was an off night."
    Dined on 9/19/2014
  • "Everything we ordered was perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant. Pricey but the quality and service are excellent."
    Dined on 9/19/2014
  • "The food was just so so. We had Por boy and had stuff in it i had never seen before..celery? And the oysters were few. Other people had the quiche and pulled pork and no one was impressed. The waiter was great and did bring a free dessert as was one members birthday. Probably would not come back."
    Dined on 9/18/2014
  • "Our first course never came, the waiter couldn't find the wine we ordered, the appetizer salad was the size of an entree, the scallops came raw. When they brought them back, they were burnt on the outside and still raw inside. We poured our own wine mostly, and when the waiter poured, he filled one glass and not the other. The manager did comp the scallops and dessert, but overall, we spent way too much time trying to get food and wine to the table."
    Dined on 9/13/2014
  • "I found this menu to be simply average, and the service barely that. I met someone for lunch, asked for a dark napkin to cover my suit, and the server looked at me like I was crazy. Finally said no and instead offered me white cocktail napkins. I too had the chicken wrap, and the food was bland with grissle in my wrap. Really? Perhaps it was simply a bad day, but the experience was noteworthy enough that I'd most likely return only for drinks. Sad, because it's in a great location and the decor is nice."
    Dined on 9/8/2014
  • "We eat regularly at Kitchen Bar and usually request a banquette near the bar. Last Friday, there was a large family group holding a special event dinner at the restaurant, and although they had reserved the "back" room, many of them stood around the bar talking before dinner, making the area around our banquette crowded and noisier than usual. Our server was apologetic and we knew they'd eventually move to their tables, so we weren't complaining, but the manager came and told us that they would comp our first round of drinks to compensate for the inconvenience. Just one more reason we love going there."
    Dined on 9/5/2014
  • "The food is ok, but not outstanding. We ordered an appetizer that came out the same time as our food, which was annoying. Hair in our fries, and the fries were comped, but that's still not ok."
    Dined on 9/3/2014
  • "Disappointing Washingtonian Magazines top 100 pick. The excellent décor & acceptable service did not make up for the sub-par food. The appetizers of fried oysters, raw oysters, "duck fat" fries, and pork belly were acceptable. Nothing special. The lamb chops were overcooked and under seasoned, not to mention skimpy; the pork chop was overcooked even though we specifically requested that they not be cooked well-done, and the scallops were raw. The highlight of the meal was the ginger and lime martini and the bread pudding. Both delicious. We will not return to this restaurant especially since it resulted in an upset stomach for one of the guests. There are far too many good places to eat in the DC area to give this one a second chance."
    Dined on 8/30/2014
  • "We went to 8407 with a few other couples and had a great Friday night out! We sat in the bar, the food and service was excellent. We asked for some wine and cocktail recommendations and John was very helpful, answering our questions and making suggestions within our price range. We started with the shrimp risotto and everyone at the table nearly licked their bowls clean. I loved the tagliatelle and my husband said the lamb was the best he's ever had. A fun and relaxing evening, we'll be back for sure."
    Dined on 8/29/2014
  • "I was looking for a place to meet D.C and Maryland residents, some without a car. Downtown was too much hassle and too expensive. 8407, a block from the Silver Spring metro, fit the bill. Local, seasonal and expertly prepared food and drinks. I've eaten here several times before and I am more pleased with each visit. The waiter was wonderful with a dry, droll style with attentive, non-intrusive expertise and knows the menus. All 5 of us cleaned our plates (appetizer, dinner and dessert). A great place to relax, visit, converse and have a wonderful dining experience."
    Dined on 8/27/2014
  • "I was a bit skeptical at first, seeing the neighborhood in which 8407KB is situated. The restaurant is unassuming on the outside, but trendy, sporty, and fun inside. Terrific menu selections, great wines, and a great atmosphere all scored big points for my first date experience. I would definitely go back!"
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "In a city FULL of all you can eat & bottomless brunches, Kitchen Bar leaves something to be desired. The service was really great, and you can sit there for a long time and did not feel rushed, so that was really nice. As far as the food, it's not great. I tried the meatballs, quiche, bacon, biscuit, and a few other things I thought weren't great. The one exception to that was the lox, which really was amazing, though there were no bagels. There also was a lovely spread of artisan breads, but no cheese, just fruit jams. I have friends who went there for brunch before it was a buffet, and they all said it was delicious, so I was really looking forward to going. I don't think I'd go back for brunch. The regular a la carte menu looked nice."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "The food is always fine here, creative combinations and fusions. Saturday night noise level somewhat detracting but manageable."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "I've never had a bad meal at Kitchen Bar - ever. The menu is varied but keeps its favorites (like the Duck Fat and Rosemary Fries!). Very comprehensive bar and tasty, innovative cocktails. It's a go-to for my girlfriends and me."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "This is my 5th or 6th dinner at 8407 and for the first time I had some difficulties. e were 4 adults seated upstairs in the dining area and the table was way too small for us - so small we were playing games moving (and removing) things from the table just to fit the appetizers and the two bottles of wine and water on the table. Tables are OK for 2 but for 4 they are just insufficient and too tiny. Food was good but the menu choices were limited and many items were not available. As others have noted, bar area might need to be thoroughly cleaned - one guest of mine ordered an after-dinner liquor and it came with bugs in the drink."
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "My date and I had a very nice time at the restaurant on Thursday night. We sat at a round booth, the waiters were fun and attentive, the menu is extensive and interesting and the food was very good. If you're looking for a sweet, romantic spot in Silver Spring, it's definitely worth a try."
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "Whenever a special occasion pops up, our favorite place to go in the Silver Spring area is "The Kitchen". We love showing off this wonderful place when people come from out of town and the food and drink menu are always special. Of course the service is some of the best in the area with great servers that we always look forward to seeing."

  • "Great experience! Went with a couple of coworkers I was traveling with and was a hit. Will absolutely be back!"
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "A hair in the oysters/calamari ruined what would have been a excellent brunch. And the server was very "oh well" when told. And yes, we were given a full bill!"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Awesome time dining out. I hadn't seen my bestfriend in awhile & we needed to catch up. Our server, Eirik made this experience perfect. The recommendations were perfect for what I had a taste for. Also the food was great, except the tap water and the dessert wasn't the best. Our server made up for this with with jokes and sweet remarks. Great place to dine!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "My best friend and I decided to try 8407 Kitchen & Bar during Restaurant Week because we had already tried the other featured restaurants before. The overall ambiance of the restaurant is warm and welcoming. The service we received from Eric was highly informative and personable. Our only slight critique was the food. We loved the cream corn soup but we did not care for the rainbow trout. Surprisingly, we both thought it was slightly bland. I would be willing to give them another try as they may have had the trout already made due to the demand during restaurant week. As with any restaurant, I'll say give them a try as your experience will be different from mine."

  • "We have been there 5 times now and do not know a better restaurant in the area -- great food!"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Never a disappointing experience. Great mixologist and creative cocktails are fun and a kick to boot. Never hesitate to recommend to friends. The pork belly is to die for as was the duck breast and pork chop. well worth the drive from Baltimore"
