Great food & great service. The kitchen bar is expensive for a full dinner but it is worth the price for a special night out. Apps and a drink at the bar are more reasonable and a great way to end the day!

Visited with a group of 4 on a Monday evening. 1/2 price wine made the list interesting and accessible. Some listed wines weren't in stock, but good upgrades were offered at the price of the listed bottle. Duck spring rolls were a stand out, calamari and squash soup were very good. Main entrees were all excellent - duck, mussels, lamb... More

On a busy weekend evening, the service was attentive and the food savory. Our party of four enjoyed every dish. The prices are on the higher side, but for a special night out, it's worth it.

8407 Kitchen Bar has slipped, gone downhill. Service is slow (drinks especially). Price-to-value ratio is out of whack, as cuisine quality is mixed at best. Nice space, with convenient parking. But, sadly, the restaurant quality is off from its former high mark.

I found this place using Trip Advisor, and I am happy I came. The bar cocktails are fun and tasty, the staff is friendly, and the food was delicious. We just came in for snacks and cocktails, but we stayed longer. The fried oysters were fresh and crispy, and the pork belly with Korean BBQ was a hit! Would recommend... More

I met a colleague here for lunch since it had easy access to the Metro and parking in the garage around the corner was easy parking. We both had burgers and they were excellent. They were cooked properly and quite good. The service was very good and the prices were quite reasonable. I would not hesitate to come back here.

This restaurant is very tasteful, if not very tasty. The decor is chic -- both well designed for comfort and practicality. The menu, however, is limited to ordinary lunch fare. It should ramp up its dinner choices and grow up into a real downtown restaurant. It looks like one -- it just doesn't taste like one!

Had a group business dinner here and the service was HORRIBLE! Seems the wait staff had their tip factored into the group size rate and had no incentive to care for the guests. We had some of our group finishing their entrees while others had not yet received their salads. One guest had notified the hosts prior to arrival of... More

I visited the Kitchen Bar twice in my short stay in Silver Spring - it was that good! A friendly atmosphere with great staff - as I was on my own, I sat at the bar. The first night I had the Chicken maderas. This was really nice. The second evening, I had steak frites. I am very fussy about... More
