Excellent cooking and service, but sadly won't be back

I went here with a friend on a Thursday night. Let me start with the good. We both had the braised lamb shank, which was beyond delicious. Heavenly. Nicely served with whipped potatoes and braised vegetables. An excellent, dry Cabernet served by the glass, well priced. Attentive, charming... read more

We were late on the bandwagon on this place. You walk in and the place reads like a nightclub, but not pretentious or unapproachable. Kari, our server greeted us with a smile. She was friendly and informative...and lets us know that fresh hot naan is on the way. Wow...what a way to start off. Unlike every other Indian restaurant I've... More

We came here with a prepaid dinner coupon. We enjoyed one appetizer, two entrees, one dessert and two glasses of wine. Food was tasty (Tandoori tacos, two fish entrees and one Mango dessert), all well prepared and presented. The service (Kari) was very nice and helpful. We enjoyed an extra bottle of wine (half price) and we were allow to... More

The concept is interesting but the execution is poor. It seemed an excuse for mixing random aromas, and charging a lot of money for very little cooking skills, and no attention to details. Take the duck: not crisp on the outside, chewy, with a too salty sauce tasting like some green curry leftovers. Or mussels and clams, a small portion... More

This restaurant is not hard to find as the name is prominent on the outside, but out of the way from the Bethesda Row places, and right across the street from a garage.The space has a frosty silver decor in a big room with a central bar. The very best thing about this place is as it should be, the... More

4935 Bar & Kitchen does an excellent job on the food part, but unfortunately the service, decor, and facilities hamstring the restaurant. First, the good part. The concept of French, Indian and American is a concept of food that I enjoyed. From the solid starters (nan, fresh seafood, and funky tacos) to the excellent main course (exquisite rack of lamb...

We had a great birthday dinner. Started with samosa appetizers, moved on to lentil soup, next a yummy small salad of mint/spinach/cucumber and then on to entrees of our choice. I had the ravioli with eggplant and egg yolk (really good), while the non-vegetarians in the group had lamb, salmon, etc. the desserts were amazing. All in all, a wonderful... More

My sister and I decided to try their Happy Hour since the menu looked great and everything was half price. Just for the fun of it, we each had an oyster ($1 each) which we both liked. On to our meal. We started out with the duck ($4) and crab ($3.50) samosas which were good. Each was plated on top... More

The food at 4935 Bar & Kitchen is as good as any in Bethesda. Salads and, especially, chicken tacos, were delicious starters. Duck and scallops as mains were also terrific. Prices are reasonable and service pretty good. The chef is clearly talented and we will be back. That being said, the room is set up kind of oddly -- more... More

The restaurant is located in an upscale area and was easy to find. The parking garage is across the street. The restaurant is very spacious and the bar is located in the center of the restaurant the main level. There is an upper level which can be use for private parties or events.
