Annual holiday lunch with colleagues. Ambiance is very nice. Wait staff is really attentive and pleasant. Wait staff and raspberry cheesecake were highlights of lunch. Nice menu, but taste didn't live up to expectations.

Undeniably the best restaurant in Silver Spring - fantastic bar scene (which is popular and obviously can be crowded, but is way more laid back then a place in downtown DC). The menu isn't extensive, but absolutely amazing. The prices are expensive, but again, relative to the city, reasonable.

I great place for a good --not too fancy, not too casual meal or drinks with friends or for a date. In fact a good first date place because it is good and creative food, expensive enough so that you don't seem cheap, but not over the top. I have been here many times.

We were here on a weeknight, so it wasn't too busy, and although they were out of the salmon I was hoping to have, everything we had was well-prepared, including the branzino and the chicken. They use mostly local ingredients, and everything is good. The bread pudding dessert (made with local bread :-) ) was to die for.

A bit noisy, but a good mix of options, including vegetarian. Pricey compared to my standard, but I am extremely cheap :) .

My husband and I use the Washingtonian Magazine's Top 100 Best Restaurant guide quite a bit when searching for great restaurants. We are so happy we took their advice and checked out 8407 Kitchen Bar. It has a fun, hip atmosphere that's walking distance to the metro and the Discovery Channel. It's also very close to the Silver Spring shops... More

Again, a lovely meal at 8407 Kitchen Bar. This time we sat at the bar downstairs, my daughter and I. It's the kind of bar where two women can sit and have a meal/drink without any of the usual pick up carry-on! I had jet lag, just returned from a trip to the UK. So I was not really hungry,... More

Tucked away on a forgotten street in Silver Spring, this place is a little gem. The wine list is wonderful and not overpriced by DC standards. The food, too, is certainly a little more thought over and considered than one finds in this price point. Overall, a not to be missed in the downtown Silver Spring dining scene.

I have worked in this area for over 10 years and have never heard of this place. What a shame!!! Went there today and had a great lunch. The service was very fast and extremely pleasant. A big change from some of the restaurants in the area. You have to try the duck fat fries!! Definitely not health food. I... More

Three of us, ladies, gathered here for lunch....all coming from different directions. This restaurant is in the heart of Silver Spring, Maryland. Eating is upstairs for lunch...so not convenient for those with mobility issues. I had the beet and arugula salad with feta cheese and had chicken added. The salad was plentiful and the chicken freshly cooked. My friends had... More
