    First visit; great time. The bar lounge off the entrance is a nice start if you're having drinks. Very comfy, and reasonably stylish. The upstairs dining room has the right ambiance with dim lighting, tables spaced properly from one another, and good music. The menu is definitely Contemporary American with interesting selections for each course. We had a marvelous chicken liver pate, butternut squash soup, roasted beet/candied pecan salad for starters. All were excellent. For entrees, I had the rainbow trout with squid ink linguine; the other three had the gnocchi with mushrooms and peas. All dishes were good. Complaint: too much butter and salt. Not atypical, but still...dessert selection nice, but execution sub par. Very good overall.

    Very pleasant staff. Easy to park. Varied menu. We were a party of 4. All had a starter and an entree and 3 had dessert. All were very good. Very good selection of interesting beers. A nice Petite Sirah by the glass, which is a wine you don't often see offered by the glass. A tad loud in the dining room as it was a busy Friday night, but not unbearable. Cheery hostesses at the front desk. Oxtail ragu was especially enjoyed - delicious. Best restaurant in Silver Spring in my opinion. We have been there 3 times before and will likely return.

    I am a blessed man. This was a birthday dinner at my favorite restaurant. It doesn't matter what the occasion, you will feel special. Our waiter Scott, was patient and provided us with explanations of menu items and needed time to select our new favorites meals. If you are in a group, be prepared to share. Everyone will want to try what the other orders.

    The food was great. I had the duck and the dark meat was tasty; however the breast was a little tough even though it was rare. The red rice and green beans that came with it were very tasty. One of my sons had the chicken tenders and fries. He loved the fries, but had to return the chicken tenders because they were fried too hard. They were very accommodating and gave him a new order. My other son loved his grill cheese and fries. Other family members had pork chops, lamb, chicken and a burger. They all loved their food too. It is a nice atmosphere.

    I go for the food, but service can make or break the meal. They were excellent. Hostess responded to my request for a quieter spot (I love a noisy group, but only when I'm in it), and this was the only time that I had split waiters actually enhance the experience. Food was good to excellent - the oxtail fettucine was great, the risotto side was a bit too soupy but had great flavor. Too bad I filled up on the house fries fried in duck fat with just the right spike of rosemary.

    Everything the four of us (2 couples) ordered was wonderful. Prepared on point! The service was excellent. The noise level was, unfortunately, on a Saturday night, loud. But that's to be expected in a busy, lively place. Our only complaint would be that when everything is served, it DOES NOT fit on the table well. WAY TOO crowded making it uncomfortable and MUCH LESS of a fine dining experience!

    My husband and I love 8407, but I have to say, they've been particularly awesome over the last few months when I've visited while pregnant. The bartenders make really great virgin cocktails, the kitchen and waitstaff don't bat an eye at requests for my meat to be closer to well-done, and they go out of their way to make it feel like a special occasion even when it's a random Friday night. This is definitely my favorite restaurant in Silver Spring.

    I was worried that 8407 Kitchen Bar was yet another american gastro-pub but was pleasantly surprised by the great seafood there. I ordered the steel head trout and it was beautifully cooked. The other people in my party ordered the lamb loin and the sea scallops. Both came out very nicely presented and perfectly cooked. It was a great find in Silver Spring and right near the Sheraton hotel where we were staying.

    Went to 8407 KB for Mother's Day. Great place, had a mixed fine dining/rustic/quasi industrial vibe to it with an open ceiling exposing the wooden rafters and ducting. Great food, our party of four loved everything. Highly recommend the calamari, it was so good, best we've had and we're big on ordering calamari wherever we go. Cocktails were superb and the desserts were delicious. The view was nothing to write home about as the restaurant overlooks the shameful downtown Silver Spring Metro money pit never ending construction site but with what's going on inside there's no need to look elsewhere. Highly recommend a visit to 8407 KB.

  • mother's day disappointment
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    We've enjoyed this restaurant before and were looking forward to a special meal on Mother's Day. The special mother's day menu was very limited, and not at all interesting. They ran out of prime rib, which at the fixed price they were asking was one of the only options on the menu that was appealing. The sandwich I got was just a bland ham and cheese--nothing special about it at all. Pretty disappointing food all around for 2 adults and 2 kids. No drinks and it ran to $100 for cold scrambled eggs, bland ham and cheese, and one very good crab cake. We could have just gone to Eggspectations or some random chain and had a better food experience. I don't think they were equipped to handle Mother's Day at all.

    Service was awesome, but the food was not worth the price. For $28 a person, I would expect a great brunch. My mother in law's eggs were over done. They were very kind to bring her more eggs, but more than 20 minutes into us eating. The manager stopped by to apologize too and offer us half off her meal for the inconvenience, but then 1/2 off didn't even show up when we got the bill - I had to ask. Everyone elses meals were OK, but honestly, nothing to write home about. Great service and ambiance - poor quality for the price.

    Dined on 5/10/2014
    The food is excellent, the service this time was poor. An assistant server was confused---we watched our appetizer (yummy calamari) pass us a few times, before being served to us. It was still warm, but it would've tasted better had it been delivered 10 mins. earlier. The waiter argued with me over the ingredients for a Mai Tai. He asked me what was in the drink, before even bothering to ask the bartender. I thought it odd. Last month, they had been able to serve me a terrific Mai Tai. Generally, our server was un-attentive. The Trout on black pasta was a fabulous dish, as was the pear and sorbet dessert. The food is so good, we'll be back, and hopefully have the server we had the first time.

    Our visit to 8407 was somewhat disappointing. We had made reservations for a birthday dinner well in advance and asked for a booth. We were seated at a table and it was pretty loud in the restaurant. The waiter was average - we had to ask three times for the bread that is served prior to the meals. One of the meals was lukewarm when served. We will return as we have been to this restaurant before and had excellent experiences, but it was a disappointing dinner.

    I'm so happy to have visited 8407 kitchen bar for my birthday dinner! The food is just amazing, and the staff is always attentive, but not pushy. We treated ourselves to a few drinks at the downstairs bar since we arrived well before our reservation time. The bar was busy and a little noisy -- pretty much what you would expect on a Friday night. Moving upstairs for our dinner reservations, we were lucky to get one of the cute half-circle booth tables. Our server was really helpful, and we felt at ease when making our selections. My Rainbow Trout with lemony butter squid ink tagliatelle was so savory and delicious, and the portion size was generous. We finished our visit with a creme brûlée topped with raspberry sauce -- perfect!

    We enjoyed our time overall however, the bartender at the upstairs bar left a lot to be desired. She was rude and unhelpful. We wished we had not gone to the bar ahead of our meal. The service at our table was good (Eric.) The scallops were great, however the salmon dish was over powered by the sides. The eggplant was charred to a crisp and untasty.

    I came here for a nice birthday dinner with my roommates and the place did not disappoint. Great beer and wine selection and the dinner was great. Really nice choices on food. That said everything was a bit over salted I felt. The creme brulee (my favorite dessert) was delicious. They even put a candle and spelled out happy birthday in chocolate on the plate when they found out I was celebrating.
