I went here for the first time with three people on a Wednesday night. They were fairly busy, and seemed a bit understaffed. The food was good, but we had to wait quite a while for a couple of small things to be brought once we had the main course. It also took a while to get the check. Overall... More

We went on girls night and the bottom level was packed. Ate upstairs and it was much quieter. I had the steak frites but they were so chewy that it was hard to eat. Very disappointing. The wine I had was very good though. The bartender was our waiter when we were in a booth. That seemed to hamper his... More

Food, atmosphere and service was great! We were there on a busy Saturday night. The music in the bar was loud but we ate upstairs and had a great night. The crab cakes are so good, mussels and eggplant delicious. The desserts are decadent, the pumpkin pie gelato was a favorite. We will definitely go back for a festive family... More

Although we had a quick lunch at the bar, I must say I was impressed by the menu, wine choices, food and service. We will definitely try this restaurant again! I had the fish tacos and if I had my way I would have added crab cakes, fried oysters and pulled pork sandwich! Hope that helps.

We went here for my birthday dinner and it was a very nice place for a special occasion. . The restaurant has a nice menu with a variety of choices and an interesting drink menu. The décor is well done it feels upscale while still feeling inviting. I liked the booths along the wall. They feel private but you can... More

I went here to meet a few friends before seeing a show in downtown silver spring. Their had an all day happy hour on a Sunday in their bar/lounge area. $5 glasses of wine!! Great deal. They had a nice selection of shared appetizers too. Everything was good, excellent service, and a nice atmosphere too. Will definitely return to try... More

I ate dinner at 8407 Kitchen Bar with some relatives on an early Friday evening. The restaurant has great (hipstery) ambience and a well-rounded menu. I had a delicious beet and goat cheese salad, as well as some oysters on the half-shell. However we felt the service was a bit lacking and, for lack of a better phrase, impatient. Ironically,...

Great food and service. Unusual offerings. We enjoyed a customer appetizer tray with charcuterie and very nice cheeses. I'd recommend that. Then we had dinner. Very good all around.

Having participated in the Women's March today, we enjoyed good cocktails...Cosmo and martinis and great calamari with salsa verde and crab cakes upstairs. Friendly servers and nice window table.

We go there somewhat regularly (more often now that Jackie's closed). The food is great as is the service. We typically eat at the bar on the second floor (have had the same great bartender several times).
