    We did the Chef's tasting menu and it was wonderful. The crab "cake", in particular, was outstanding. The desserts were beautifully presented and delicious. Our waiter was very attentive. I would definitely go back. It was too chilly to spend any time outside, but I would expect that a summer evening would be a great time for a visit. Thank you!

    This was a birthday dinner. We had the 5-course Prix-fix dinners. The food was commensurate with a 5-star restaurant. I had the wine to go with each course. The Sommelier was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The waiter gave just the right amount of service. We dined for almost 3 hours. This was a most enjoyable experience! We have dined there numerous times before and never been disappointed and we will certainly return!

    We had another excellent meal here, and 2941 made this meal extra special for my mom's 60th birthday dinner. We appreciated the beautifully presented desserts. Our server Jean-Marc was outstanding. The food was spectacular. I really enjoyed the wonderfully flavorful vegetarian fettuccine dish, but the truffle cavatelli was also excellent. The duck and halibut were also delicious and well cooked. The Samoa dessert was decadent and well balanced. We always love coming to 2941, and this visit was no exception with excellent food, ambiance and service.

    The food was very good, as usual and expected. The service, however, seems to have suffered lately. Our waiter was perfunctory and failed to keep track of our table and what we may have wanted/needed. Never came back to offer coffee with desert and waited a long time before being able to get his attention for the check. The bus boy (man), on the other hand, was extremely pleasant and helpful. I would have liked to tip him separately. It's a caverness space so it's never really quiet, but not annoyingly loud. Dress code is anything from shorts to formal wear, so in spite of the prices don't be surprised to see people in jeans, t-shirts and sneakers.

    We had dinner last evening at 2941 to celebrate my son's 30th birthday. We brought a 1992 Beaucastel to help in the celebration, which the Som was happy to open and serve for us. We ordered three courses from the a la cart menu. Everything was delicious. We can't say enough about the elegant and thoughtful service, great food, delightful ambiance or overall experience Thanks again!

    I've dined here many times, and the experience is always top-notch. The food, the ambiance, the service, the wine list--can't be beaten in the suburbs of northern Virginia. This time my colleague and I sat at the bar where the bartenders Elie and Adris took great care of us. We wanted to do a wine tasting to decide what we should serve at an upcoming private dining event. Elie and Adris made fantastic recommendations and were genuinely passionate and knowledgeable about their craft and the wine list. We even tasted Elie's brand new pink grapefruit mocktail, which was sensational. I feel confident recommending 2941 to even those with the highest standards.

    Chef's tasting menu and wine pairing were absolutely outstanding, not a single item was off. Very knowledgable sommelier explained history of the wines presented and they melded with the food perfectly. The garden table is an excellent setting, very private and quiet. Other than the great food, the restaurant seems to have scaled down a bit - no more valet parking, nobody at the front desk at times, but still an excellent value and I would highly recommend it.

    Great food, good service. A little disappointed that a service charge for a party of 2 was added to the bill. Normally I wouldn't mind, but if you are going to add a service charge for a party of 2 it would be nice if the server mentioned it and I think 24% is a little overkill for a $300 bill. Also, my second glass of wine was 4oz. max. Still one of my favorite restaurants.

    The Chef’s Tasting Menu with Wine Pairings was outstanding. We brought our friend here for his birthday, and he does not like seafood, but the chef was very accommodating with changing out one of the courses with something he would like. James, our sommelier, was terrific and did a great job of explaining each wine and why it was paired with that particular course. Our server did a fabulous job, too. He made us feel very special and welcome and beautifully explained each course. Our experience at the bar was great, too. Very attentive, professional, friendly bar tenders. We love 2941.

    The tasting menu was innovative and delicious. We especially liked the first course of crab and tomato and second course of summer squash and fried stuffed olives. However, the service was much too slow. We sat for over 15 minutes before the waiter came over to take our order and another 15 minutes before the sommelier came for our wine order. Timing between first and second courses was not overly long, but after we finished the second course, it took a good 20 minutes for the third course to arrive. all in all, we were at the restaurant for over 2.5 hours. That was a very disappointing component to what could (and should) have been an outstanding dining experience.

    Great food. Delicious. Wonderful upscale meal. Service was good. However, there was a larger table that the server was covering. So, it did feel like we were waiting longer to get courses and service. For example, when the course comes out, they typically describe the dish, but we were half finished before the server was able to swing by

    They were amazing. I proposed to my fiancé there and my brother went early and informed the hostesses and they pointed me in the direction of the waterfalls. There my brother and his gf were waiting to take pictures and video. It was great, we then attempted to eat dinner but were a little too worked up after the proposal. We split an appetizer and an entrée and left for our next stop. The restaurant then provided us a free dessert as a congratulations. Everything was amazing!

    Food and service was excellent. I found the one mignonette that came with the oysters to be heavy on the vinegar for my taste. Otherwise, we both enjoyed everything we were served. Although the space is cavernous I had no problem hearing or being heard on a Tuesday night. We both had cocktails, a glass of wine, appetizers, entrees and desserts all for just under $200.

    The restaurant is the most beautiful in the DC area both inside and out. Its menus are creative and delicious, regardless of what you order. The combination of tastes within and across courses is excellent. Service remains at the highest level, despite Covid precautions and restrictions. My only complaint is that valet service has not been restored which makes it difficult for disabled patrons to find close parking.
