Modern Californian cuisine utilizing locally grown, sustainably farmed and fair-traded products. Our goal is to not only enhance quality but also to support a new, more responsible attitude toward our community and the world around us. That is why we donate all net profits to chartable causes. Both warm and inviting, nature was the inspiration for Andrei's interior; from the soaring two-story waterfall in the lobby to the striking onyx and granite bar and eco-friendly pecan wood floors, every detail was hand-selected for its natural beauty. We welcome you to visit Andrei's for a truly special dining experience. <br />

"Very good price for drinks until 7
Food is just so so. The pasta dish was good, but the salmon tacos were laughable. Thick tortilla pancakes with little bits of salmon and cole slaw held together with tooth picks
I asked for the salad on the side and it did come on the side, as well as on top.
But we saw good things on the menu which we will try next time; always give a restaurant a second chance.

With the look and feel of one of the "Great Camps" of the Adirondacks, Tower Oaks Lodge serves an American-style saloon menu. Adjacent to a 21-acre nature preserve, Tower Oaks Lodge is located just off I-270. The raw bar features oysters from both coasts.

"We have never been disappointed but not always thrilled. The fish is always good; the crab cakes were met with indifference. Filet Mignon not that exciting. Service was a bit indifferent this time, though usually very good.
Loud place; the sound tends to bounce off the walls, at least in the room we were; I believe the other room, where they have regular tables, not booths, is quieter. Stay away from the bar, specially during world cup.
Suggestion: when you see a very old lady coming in, do not seat her near the bar.

8407 kitchen bar in downtown Silver Spring is a welcoming oasis of comfort and casual sophistication. From the sleek and stylish bar/lounge on the ground floor to the warm and rustic charm of the light-filled second floor dining room. 8407 offers something to please all moods and tastes.<br /><br />Executive Chef Justin Bittner's artisanal American menu features house made charcuterie, fresh, seasonal, locally sourced produce, meat and game as well as sustainable seafood. Pastry chef Rita Garruba's desserts end the meal on the perfect grace note. The dining experience is welcoming with knowledgeable service in a warm and approachable atmosphere. <br /><br />Not to be missed: Sunday Brunch, and Wine Lover's Mondays (exclusive 1/2 priced wine bottle selections for diners).

"We all had a different experience. The duck was very well received, but the serving size of the souffle off foie gras, was too large and not that great. The trout was just ok but I was disappointed that the accompanying side of tagliatelle was unavailable, maybe a Monday problem, so they gave an extra amount of vegetables. The steak was a big hit, as well as the scallops. The highlight of the evening was the rhubarb dessert; that was awesome.
I was sorry that I did not order some of the more original items on the menu; maybe next time.
All in all it is a very pleasant restaurant in the middle of bustling Silver Spring, and the parking garage is just adjacent. Service was friendly and attentive.
Worth a second visit.

Oakville Grille and Wine Bar serves American cuisine in a California inspired atmosphere. Enjoy innovative cuisine and a wonderful wine selection.

"Located in a strip mall, no parking problems and near Balducci's and other restaurants, including the relatively new Wildwood restaurant. Both are good but Oakville Grille has a better choice of fish dishes. We ordered and would recommend the salmon, the seafood risotto, the spinach salad. I had the Chilean sea bass, which in itself was very well prepared, but I found the sauce a bit overwhelming and the side of spinach over salted. The bread was a hit.
Service was very attentive and although we stayed a bit longer than usual, nobody made any motions to encourage us to leave. Restaurant is not too big and the atmosphere is subdued; no loud music here.
We have eaten here several time and will continue to do so.
