Hi, my Family & I were Blessed to celebrate my 73rd Birthday at 2941 as they gradually transition to fully reopening during COVID. I felt completely comfortable, every precaution had been taken, hand cleanser stations, separation of tables, the staff wearing mask, cutlery pre packaged and sanitized, menus were not reusable but taken with you or disposed of. Every touch that could have been added was, but the effects only enhanced the event. The Service, Food, attention to detail, wine selection were the best they have ever been in my history of visiting the restaurant. I highly recommend you make an reservation and treat yourself. Our expert Server Jean-Marc was exceptional as well as our Sommelier Nikki. Great night and we will be back very soon.

Special occasion necessitated a special restaurant. We made reservations via OPEN TABLE. The day before, 2941 called to confirm reservation and clarify that we were aware that the only dining option was the tasting menu. Each of the courses offered one vegetarian option, which was nice.
We chose outdoor eating, and were escorted to a nice outdoor corner table. We had excellent vistas underneath a outdoor tarp/pavilion. Waitstaff were masked and gloved, silverware and napkins encased in a plastic envelope to be opened by the dinner. Courses were presented in a timely manner; each presented by a different member who placed it in front, and then all simultaneously uncovered. The waiter would then describe each course.
While rather warm outside, at no time was it uncomfortable.
The restrooms were clean and hand sanitizers were liberally available throughout the restaurant.

fixed price menu is pretty decent. ate outdoors and was comfortable enough, service was good and they take care of the guest. kitchen appears to have found the salt shaker...just in the braised lamb shoulder which could have otherwise been a star

We went on our anniversary. Due to Covid they only have a prix fixe menu, which was fine by us. I like all of my dishes, and so did my wife.

The service was very good, and the tables are well spaced. Everybody is wearing masks and gloves, and so did we until the food came.

Our first time out in the pandemic. Tasting menu was outstanding. Service was excellent. Social distancing. Staff wore masks. Did the wine pairings which were great. A little pricey but you get what you pay for.

2941 Remains our go-to restaurant for our special events. After ~9 weeks of 2941 "take out," we looked forward to the initial opening of indoor dining. We were not disappointed. The food and service remained some of the best in the region and the pandemic precautions they take are simultaneously effective and non-intrusive. The already a large, spacious dining room has had even more tables removed resulting in 15-20 feet of spacing between tables. The wait staff was gloved and masked throughout. Silverware and napkins were plastic wrapped with new packets distributed for each course. And did I mention the food was still impeccably delicious for both the palate and the eye. 2941 is back in business and well worth the experience.

Wonderful steak and truffle frites. Deserts were heavenly. Just be aware 2941 charges a 20% service charge prior to taxes. They do circle the charge but the waiter does not inform you of the service charge. My understanding is that the "owner" of 2941 can then disperse the tip to everyone, not just your server. I am ok with this but I read he also can just "keep" the money. I did not leave an additional tip since the SC was close to $40.

My server Lahcen was amazing and so attentive and kind. I appreciate the manager Sion and the host because she did not hesitate to inquire with him a request we had on our call. Most people will find any way to not involve the manager and leave the customer upset . This shows care for the customers AS WELL as a safe and effective communication foundation the staff have together . I am proud of them. May they continue to work well together! Thanks for making Fathers Day special !

This was an anniversary celebration. Due to COVID, the menu was limited to the Chef's Tasting Menu, which is what we wanted anyway. It was superb!
The staff was very welcoming and professional, particularly the sommelier, and they made us feel very safe with the precautions for the virus.

Left wanting more in nearly every way....This is the ONE nicer restaurant in the DMV I had not been to. I booked this for a special occasion and noted it in the reservation. No commentary or special attention was given. Disappointing as any other restaurant where I’ve had an occasion and placed a note has done something nice with it. The timing was also off. Portions were so small as were the pours of wine (we did the wine pairing), that courses were too quick to allow enjoying of the evening. We were “in and out” $440 later for 2 people (I bought my favorite wine to go for $60). About 9pm, back at home, we were hungry again, so we made a snack. Not worth it and won’t go back. Rating reflects the nice wait staff and ambience; the rest severely lacking.

As usual, optimal experience. Five-course tasting menu was simple but superb. Service was exceptional in a very difficult Covid era, but the entire staff were superb (kudos to Jennifer and Julio and their assistants! Highlights were...well, all five courses, but the tempura dishes were great...and was served the best quinoa I've ever eaten.

Our first outing since Covid and it was perfect. Chef Chemel’s dishes are always flavorful & interesting! The outdoor seating offered air flow, masks and gloves were worn by all employees, silverware protectively wrapped for each guest. A wonderful experience for any occasion.

If you are worried about Covid-19 then the generously spaced outside tables in the tent, the masked servers, the individually wrapped silverware, the disposable menus etc make the evening safe and enjoyable. What a welcome relief.

We made reservation at 2941 as soon as we saw that they re-opened with patio dining, but ended up requesting a table in the dining room when they announced re-opening of indoor dining. As always the service was impeccable and the food was faultless. There were some logistic changes due to Covid-19, and, to be honest, these changes made us feel very safe during the whole time we were there. Parking was still complimentary but no more valet, which was understandable.
Only a tasting menu was offered, however choices could be made within the said menu. The food was fabulous, from the soft shell crab with stuffed zucchini blossom, the poached rockfish to the asparagus cassolette, ending with desserts.
We were very happy coming back, 2941 certainly did not disappoint, even during this challenging time. We hope to be back again as soon as the menu changes, or a la carte is offered.

We have always enjoyed 2941 and generally come here two to three times a year. This time was particularly lovely because such care was taken for our safety and the weather was spectacular. For our first post Covid dining experience, you couldn’t ask for a nicer one . Thanks to all who made it happen !

This was my first restaurant experience during COVID; it was a birthday gift for a friend and I was nervous. I'm still not ready to go many other places but I'd go back here in a minute. I have food allergies and was again nervous when informed that morning there would be a tasting menu. However, the choices were excellent; the wine and cocktail lists outstanding; and the outdoor ambience with well-spaced tables looking at water and woods could not be beat. Service attentive but careful. Bravo!

The five course tasting menu for $95 was a bargain. Although the thermometer said it was about 90 outside, sitting outside with a breeze from the lake was great. Once the area moves on the Phase 2 or 3 we hope they keep the outdoor dining. Our only disappointment is that the tasting menu only turns over once a month. We wish it would turnover weekly.

The 2941 restaurant opened up a patio area for outside dining. We made reservations and showed up on time. There was a function tent over the patio. Unfortunately, soon after we were seated and our wine arrived, the strong winds and storms arrived, making our table unlivable. The chef/owner himself came to us and had us moved to a much safer and quieter location.
Everything about the meal was outstanding. It was a tasting menu with limited choices. All the choices we made were delicious. It was a wonderful dining experience. The service and all the servers were friendly, attentive and very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, replete with nature provided fireworks....
We will definitely return many times to the 2941 restaurant.
