"Spur of the moment choice for brunch last Sunday. We had been to 8407 before for lunch and dinner and knew the food would be reliably good, the service efficient and friendly, and the atmosphere pleasant. I had the shrimp and grits, and except for a mix-up with my order that delayed its arrival, it was a great choice--delicious. DH had at the deviled eggs and a grilled cheese, bacon and tomato sandwich. He was happy with his sandwich and had room for key lime pie for dessert. To make up for the delay with my entre, they comped a cappuccino which was appreciated."

"I used to be a really big fan of 8407 and my husband and I came here for many special occasions. The new menu shows that they are clearly trying to "down scale" in order to attract new clients. The food seemed heavier (loaded with cheese) and saltier than previously and the menu was less for foodies and more for "mainstream" eaters. And a kids menu??? The restaurant just isn't what it used to be. The biggest disappointment was that even though it seems they are trying to downscale, it didn't seem as though the prices went down with the quality. If that were the case, then I would recommend it as a nice family choice. But, for future special occasions with my husband, I think we will be looking for different dining experience."

"Great service and nice feel - cool space with exposed ceiling. Food was ok, not great. Stay with staples like nachos, burgers and shy away from fancy stuff. Nice diverse menu."

"8407 is a good place for nice food and drink in downtown Silver Spring. On weekdays the downstairs bar is fine for a lively happy hour scene. If you're in the mood for a more quiet experience, perhaps talking with your date, the upstairs bar provides a welcome contrast. There is a good, imaginative drink list. The food is well prepared and presented. There is ample parking in the area and it is right across from the Metro stop."

"Given the appetizing menu and the cost of their entrees , 8407 is missing some of the little details needed to make for an outstanding dining experience. They could have offered a roll/butter plate (or olives or whatever) before the meal, the entree dinner plates were somewhat lacking in terms of presentation for the prices charged and the waiter didn't make an effort to entice us with appetizers or any dish for that matter. The food was tasty and the atmosphere nice, but not enough to keep foodies/gourmets coming back for more."

"The restaurant has nice lighting and very spacious. I love fries cooked in duck fat! So crispy! My only gripe is the bathrooms are small and located downstairs. If you're seated at the top in the dining area, you have to walk down the stairs to use it. For a person with knee problems thus was perilous."

"I've dined at 8407 a few times, and each time the food is always bland and unexciting. For the cost of the entrees, I would stick to the bar menu or burgers/sandwiches. Thinking I couldn't go wrong with a burger, it arrived soggy and not cooked to how I ordered it - I asked for medium rare, but the burger came so rare that I couldn't even taste it. However, the location is convenient (you can park in the metro parking lot for free after 7pm on weeknights), and the atmosphere is great for meeting with friends. Probably a better place for getting drinks or meeting friends for happy hour. They do have a great happy hour menu (everyday too!)"

"Been patronizing 8407 Kitchen Bar for years. It started out really hot and trendy, and I think that they went into a slump a year or so ago. The good news is that the restaurant has emerged better than ever. While some faves have been retained (Duck two ways is to die for!), the new, expanded menu is "inspired", not "tired". They still emphasize locally sourced, in season foods, the wine selection is outstanding, service is very attentive and the bar downstairs was hoppin' after 9 pm."

"Haven't been here in a year, but it seems the food is not as good as I remember. We had the fried oyster appetizer (undercooked and mushy), Duck Duo (confit was dry) and ribeye steak (underseasoned and surprisingly tough). Even the mashed potatoes and vegetables were bland. Maybe they forgot salt?
This was once my favorite restaurant. I guess some things have to change, but too bad it's not for the better."

"My spouse and I visited Kitchen Bar for our recent date night and truly enjoyed the ambiance. The drinks were quite potent and inventive. The deviled eggs were well-seasoned. I had the short rib bolognese-hearty and flavorful. My spouse tried the grilled cheese with bacon and tomato-decided it needed more cheese for the amount of bread provided."
