    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.

    Once we were seated the waiter swung by and said he'll be right back. About 15-20 minutes later the bartender came over and asked us if we wanted more drinks. We told him we were ready to order and ordered through him. The food was OK. I had to flag one of the bus boys down to ask for the check. A few minutes later the waiter came over and brought dessert menus. We told him we already asked the bus boy for the check and received a snarky remark about how only he (the waiter) can get us the check. This was the first time he was at our table and we were there for at least an hour and twenty minutes.

    All 3 of us raved about our entrees. The NC rainbow trout was outstanding. I liked the Flying Dog on tap. Wine was fine. Rhubarb dessert -- just ok; turn it into a real pie. I tried to book on Open Table for 7:00 -- 7:30 pm dinner on a Saturday night. It was either 6:45 or 8:00 pm; I took the latter. I got there at 7:50 and there were LOTS of available tables. Should I have called the restaurant directly?

    Started with warm olives appetizer. Came with bread and cheese spread that was delicious. Trout was very good, but prefer their smoked trout. Wasn't crazy about veggie medley under trout. Partially because I don't like cooked tomatoes. Had marscapone polenta -- to die for -- like ice cream! I took a doggie bag home because I couldn't bear to let any of the food go to waste -- it was that good!

    First time eating here. Wanted to try something new. Arrived to an empty hostess stand and waited ~3 min for her to arrive. Made a 7:45 reservation in Open Table but table wasn't actually ready until closer to 8:10 pm. Not sure why they'd even show an available reservation in the system...they kinda need to sync that better. Was doubtful after such a slow start, but bar service was friendly. So wait wasn't too bad. Dining room is nice. Love the decor. Wait staff was friendly but service was a bit slow. Food was good, but nothing to rave about. We eat out A LOT but probably would only come here once every few months based on this experience, probably when/if we want to change things up from our usual spots.

    The food & presentation were excellent. The decor makes a good appearance but is not good for a pleasant meal with an enjoyable conversation. The floors are wood, the walls are brick & one side is all windows. The are open beams leading to the pipes instead of a ceiling. There is nothing to muffle the noise. Fortunately, we had a few minutes to talk before & after the lunch time working crowd were there. We thoroughly enjoyed it while it wasn't so noisy.

    This was the 2nd visit and both times the staff who took care of us went above and beyond the call of duty. The first time we were celebrating a friend's new marriage and we brought a small cake for dessert. We weren't sure we'd be allowed to serve it, but we took a chance and even brought our own serving knife, paper plates, forks, etc. so as not to inconvenience our waiter more than necessary. But our waiter completely took care of us, slicing and serving the cake very graciously. Then he surprised us with coupons for free brunch! Well, we came back, even my friends from Vienna, VA, drove all the way back to Silver Spring for this deal. Again, the staff was so accommodating & moved our tables so that our parties were next to each other.

    Food was creative and well prepared. Service was excellent. The dining room was nice with exposed brick, etc. Our only disappointment was the noise level; beyond loud. We were there on a weekday evening and the restaurant wasn't full. We had to speak very loudly to be heard over the noise in the room at our table of 5. There is nothing to absorb the noise on the brick walls and open rafter ceiling, which means even normal noise levels are not attenuated at all.

    Food was very good and creative. The charcuterie platter was amazing and the trotter tots an original treat, creamy and sweet, salty. My trout was perfectly cooked with crispy skin the vegetables were bathed in butter, which wasn't necessary since they were seasonal fresh veg. The pork belly was crispy with the perfect amount of vegetable and vinegar. Service was a little slow, out entrees came out before we were finished with our apps and they were cleared. The hostess was overwhelmed and under enthusiastic for a Tuesday night in July.
