  • Mom's special day

    Dined on 5/11/2014
    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.

    I dined at 8407 Kitchen Bar for the first time approximately two years ago. My experience was really good. On Mother's Day 2014, I revisited the restaurant but without the same experience. The restaurant smelled like it was cleaned with dirty water. The food was okay but nothing that will cause me to return.

  • 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.

    Traveller
    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.

    This was a mothers day dinner that was very enjoyable. This restaurant provides a romantic ambience, the wine list is extensive, and its great for any occasion. We had sort of a hard time understanding our waiter, nonetheless the experience was great! I suggest the rainbow trout and/or pork chop selection. The Fries here are amazing as well.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 5/9/2014
    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.

    Love the food, it's very inventive. Too bad you have to wear a parka to visit. Would have stayed longer & bought more drinks, but we needed to thaw out. There was really no opportunity to mention this to the waiter--he was not much in evidence and seemed very rushed on the few occasions when he did walk past.

    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.

    Next to the Silver Spring metro is not where one would expect to find great food in an attractive setting. 8407 Kitchen Bar is celebrating four years of superior food. A group of friends had dinner there recently and we all walked away impressed. The menu features locally sourced high quality ingredients. The trout, lamb loin and scallops were standouts. The poached pear dessert was surprisingly indulgent.

    Haven't been here in a long time but we'll be back very soon -- the food was creative, interesting and delicious. But the highlight for us was some of the best service we have had in a long time in the DC area. Our server, Eirik, was just outstanding -- helpful without being intrusive, good sense of humor, and just terrific. In fact, we told the manager on the way out and he told us that Eirik had only been there for two weeks! We are always glad to have good feedback after a meal and it's even better when the service actually makes the meal a great experience.

The waitress was very attentive without being annoying. She was really nice. The food was good although I was not feeling well so could not each much. I would go again when I am feeling better. I was told by my dining companion that her drink, a Cosmopolitan, was terrific.

    I chose the restaurant for a business dinner in the early evening and it was perfect on all counts. The food was excellent and our server quickly "got it" that this was more than a casual event. We were given time to order, the food arrived quietly and promptly, with just enough checking in to see that we had what was needed without being intrusive. It is close to my office so I am certain I'll return for a good meal and quiet business.

    Enjoyed a nice brunch with my fiancé and my adult son, although the service was not as attentive as we would have liked (waited a long time for drinks, post-brunch coffee order was forgotten). Food was good, although the sausage gravy and biscuits entree was too heavy on gravy and way too light on biscuits. The peached pear dessert was excellent, however. Overall, the food and ambiance were good, and I'll definitely go back again.

    We ordered spring risotto as an appetizer. We received it very quickly but it lacked flavor, was soupy, and the risotto was overcooked. It should be al dente. I ordered the chicken and my boyfriend ordered a burger. It took a very long time to receive our entrees. At some time the bartender did say "I should have told you the chicken takes awhile". The skin seemed fried as opposed to roasted or pan seared but it was moist, probably brined. Also, the burger was dry and overcooked. It was supposed to be medium. It was well done, probably waiting on the chicken. Using a little bit of a fattier patty would have helped with the dryness. The rosemary fries were over seasoned. The highlight of the dinner was the cocktail. For $88, disappointing.

    8407 is the perfect combination of elegant and casual, refined and warm. The menu is not vast but considered and very satisfying in terms of quality. The service is unpretentious and attentive but discreet. And the setting is absolutely perfect: scale, space, materials, lighting.

    This is by far the best restaurant in Silver Spring and one of my favorite in all of the DMV. The service is fantastic and the ambiance is wonderful. The food doesn't get much better. I've been there multiple times. Once for brunch, which was phenomenal, and once for dinner. I will be going more often because of how great it is. The prices are of an elite restaurant but with this said there are options for food and drink to keep the cost down. The bar atmosphere is also really nice if you feel like just going in for a drink. Availability at the bar for dinner is also not be a problem when you don't want to make reservations. I would suggest this restaurant to anyone and have no qualms about them ever being dissatisfied.
