Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "This is a nice, casual dining spot with a tasty lunch menu. The service was very good. Innovative drinks. a bit noisy at lunch even though not full. To eat in the main dining room you have to climb stairs."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The food was mediocre (Oyster PoorBoy). The service was absolutely awful. The waiter was inattentive and curt, it was all about him. We waited almost 10 minutes to get the check and were late getting back to work. The fries were soggy. The noise level was such that we could not carry on a conversation. The place looks like a warehouse which accounts for the horrible acoustics. They did not have the beer I wanted that was on the menu. There are so many good places to eat in Silver Spring that I cannot think of a reason why I would ever go back to this hole."

  • "When we walked towards the restaurant we thought we had made a serious mistake trying a new place-when we walked in and saw how cool it was and how the upstairs dining area felt so hip we were very excited we were there! Our server was Matt-he was terrific-please ask for him-our beet salad was huge and amazing-just the right amount of dressing and combination of ingredients-Shrimp risotto was the best I have ever had-creamy but not runny-sharp cheese flavor-again, the portion was so large the "small plate" could have been shared. We would return and it is now among our rotating list of places to go-you must overlook the surrounding area though :)"

  • "8407 is continually my favorite restaurant in SS. Weird location but the decor, food, and service MORE than make up for that. I had the chicken caesar salad, which was surprisingly delicious. The service on this last visit was exceptional and really made it a pleasant experience. Great job as always."

  • "My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner at 8407 on Saturday night. The server was very attentive and kind without being too intrusive. He made great recommendations for dinner and wine. My chicken was so fresh and perfectly seasoned. My husband loved the salmon. We had a delicious piece of pie with gelato - fabulous. We will be back!"

  • "Having enjoyed a terrific brunch here on Mother's Day, we were very disappointed on our return for dinner with friends this past weekend. A number of the dishes were far too heavily salted and/or spiced. And nothing, including the calamari appetizer which has been given rave reviews in the past, was very good. After a memorable introduction on Mother's Day, we will not be returning."

  • "I've now enjoyed this Silver Spring treasure twice--once for a romantic meal with my spouse and another time for a lunch with young friends. Though unassuming from the street, it is a pleasant oasis inside. The second floor restaurant has a comfortable relaxing ambiance and the wait staff is friendly and engaging. It could stand well on its service alone, but the food is distinctive and high quality: fresh, seasonal, and tasty. Pricing is reasonable especially for the D.C. area. I expect to go again; I'd recommend it highly to others."

  • "We went there for a girl's night out and the food/wine were great! However, our server was not that great; he was not very informed about the wine/food pairing so we were basically on our own, nor was he very friendly or attentive. The busser came by repeatedly to clear our table when it was obviously that we were still working on our plates; we felt rushed/hurried so service-wise it wasn't the best of experiences."

  • "I have been returning to 8407 kitchen bar for the past 4 years or so for both business and personal dining. With my personal weakness for Manhattans in mind, they had me from the start with their collection of home made bitters. Try the mole for a cocktail with a kick. Our latest visit started with the porkbelly shared around the table to the delight of all. While I would also highly recommend the fries cooked in duckfat, that plue the porkbelly is too much, so we also shared the exquisite beet salad to provide a light, acidic complement to the fatty/crispy pig goodness. A favorite of mine is the duck two ways: the leg and thigh are served as comfit, while the breast is lightly seared. Desserts: to die for. No more space: EAT!"

  • "We all had a different experience. The duck was very well received, but the serving size of the souffle off foie gras, was too large and not that great. The trout was just ok but I was disappointed that the accompanying side of tagliatelle was unavailable, maybe a Monday problem, so they gave an extra amount of vegetables. The steak was a big hit, as well as the scallops. The highlight of the evening was the rhubarb dessert; that was awesome. I was sorry that I did not order some of the more original items on the menu; maybe next time. All in all it is a very pleasant restaurant in the middle of bustling Silver Spring, and the parking garage is just adjacent. Service was friendly and attentive. Worth a second visit."

  • "After completing a series of graduate school exams, another student and I had a celebratory dinner here and it was very enjoyable. The menu on a Friday evening offered a lot of fresh fish dinner selections (the mussels served in a steaming pot, scallops and salmon were all excellent) and as we were only ordering wine by the glass, the selection also was very good - great quality. The special cocktails were a great way of starting a dinner. Desserts were also freshly made and tasty and the portion sizes for everything were great. Only drawback - we were seated in one of the half-moon bancettes and the "fit" for two grown adult males was a bit tight."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "I honestly prefer 8407 kitchen for lunch, dinner or happy hour over the brunch buffet. It was a great spread, but all buffets leave a bit to be desired, I think. This place is not to be missed though, I'm still dreaming of the butternut squash soup I had there last fall, or the duck 2 ways that we tried for dinner a month or two ago. Great spot in Silver Spring!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "This was our second time here to celebrate a special occasion since Mother's Day, 8407 kitchen bar has become a family favorite. The food is outstanding and there's always something to please the palate if they are out of menu items as happened on our last visit. Try the mussels, guaranteed to please! Don't forget to sop up the broth, excellent."

  • "Short but enticing menu offers something for everyone; all appealing. First visited for dinner, and ate a beautifully prepared NY strip steak. The bar mixed a very good gin and tonic and the wine list was plentiful. Others chose scallops and risotto and were every pleased. Based on that experience I chose 8407 for lunch w friends and my gumbo and their mussels and duck fried French fries were great. For each event, the staff were friendly, attentive, and helpful. Nice clean lines throughout the restaurant, but a bit loud for conversation when all tables are full. Will go back again soon to this new favorite. Important note:patrons climb stairs to get to dining room; be aware before inviting elderly or less mobile. Is there an elevator?"

  • "Great food, service and ambiance. Public parking garage is right behind the restaurant. If you are in the MD suburbs, this is a sophisticated destination that is easily accessible for lunch. Some have complained of slow service, but I enjoyed a leisurely lunch with a friend. I felt that if I had been on a tight schedule, I only needed to let the waiter know when I placed my order. Enjoyed the mussels and fries. The chocolate cake with gelato sent me on my way with a smile."

  • "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."

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!"
