    Service was attentive but not obtrusive. The food was excellent and the presentation was all about the food. It was easy to carry on a conversation and the conversation at other tables could not be heard. The lighting is bright enough to actually see so if one is looking for a dark, romantic hideaway, this isn't it. That doesn't mean it can't be romantic. It depends on your definition. The Chocolate Bostick is amazing!!

    I am biased in my love for 2941 because it was the location of our beautiful wedding reception in 2013; but I love everything about this place. The food is always excellent, the service is friendly and attentive. The ambiance is modern and elegant, but somehow also warm and inviting. My wife is gluten-free, and there is always plenty for her to choose from their seasonal menu selections - and their wine list is great. They were very helpful in our wedding planning, if you ever need them for a special event - including a generous menu tasting for clients. The setting is very urban, but beautifully landscaped - a little oasis in the city! Can't say enough.

    This spot has become our anniversary destination. 3 years, 3 visits. We always get the Chef's Tasting Menu with the wine pairings. It's always an adventure, there's usually at least one thing I wouldn't order otherwise. For example, I HATE sushi but our recent visit starred off with a sashimi dish. It was mind blowing! You're going to pay a lot for this experience, ($300 + tip) but the amazing food and awesome staff make it worth EVERY PENNY!

    Another outstanding meal at 2941. If you have never dined here - you should. It won't be the last time you do so! The food is so creative and very good. Service is always outstanding (the staff actually seems to enjoy working together). The little waterfalls, fountains, and fish are a nice touch on the grounds - as is valet parking. We usually dine here on date nights; this last visit we brought our 10 year old. He loved it. Nice that the menu has interesting appetizers and that you can order the pasta dishes as 1/2 sized portions. A bit off the beaten path, but well worth it to find this great gem. The pastry chef here, Caitlin Dysart, just won the RAMMY for Pastry Chef of the year, and you can see why. Amazing.

    After being out of the country for 2 years we were excited to return to one of our favorite spots. 2941 is much less "fine dining" now and more bistro-esque. There were many diners in t-shirts and jeans. While this was not really a put off in any way, it made the ambiance much more casual. The wait staff were also more laid back than our last visit with a very hurried service more typical of an Applebees. Our apps arrived literally less than 2 minutes from our order and we seemed rushed to move dinner along. The food was still mostly great, though their were 1-2 uninspired and overpriced dishes. The wine list too has been drastically reduced. Still a decent night out, but the price for what you get was mismatched with the more casual feel.

    I absoutely love 2941! I first came here to celebrate a special occassion and feel in love. The service, food, and the overall decor of the resturant is phenomenal. I found is impressive that I came back to 2941 after 6 months and the server that helped us last time remembered my friend and I. 2941 is hands down one of the best resturants in Northern Virginia. There is no resturant that is as impressive as this and I would definiately recommend it to all my friends and family.

    This is a hidden gem. On the General Dynamics "campus", it is invisible from the street. Be sure to take the proper entrance (not the deliveries entrance.). The grounds are spectacular--worth arriving 5 minutes early to take a look at the waterfalls and koi pond. LOVE the mushroom tarting as a starter, the duck with Israeli couscous and the lobster pasta are outstanding! Nice wine list, by the bottle or the glass! Great for 20s and up; couples and groups; not a family place.

    Once again, 2941 doesn't disappoint. We enjoyed every minute of our dining experience. The food was outstanding and delicious. Bryan, our waiter was phenomenal. He knew of my gluten allergy and confirmed that he would take care of ensuring my food was gluten free. To top the evening off, the pasty chef prepared my most favorite dessert in the world, a small dark chocolate cake warm flourless molten cake which was out of this world fantastic. The pasty chef also presented us with a small flourless white chocolate mousse on a plate that said "Happy 11th Wedding Anniversary in a script of chocolate syrup! Thank you for making our 11th Wedding Anniversary to special!

    We've eaten at this restaurant several times for lunch, and finally decided to drive over at night. We were surprised to find the restaurant full. It's always full at lunch, but we assumed that was due to the office buildings nearby. Apparently, lots of folks think it's worth the drive. Food was excellent - imaginative, well-pesented and very tasty. We particularly enjoyed the lobster/pasta entrée and the calamari - so light. Fish was excellent. There were some unusual desserts, so be sure to save room.

    We have been to 2941 a couple of times, mostly for special occasions. We had been talking about going for a while and decided to return for our 22nd anniversary. We are always so pleasantly surprised as we pull up to this forested outpost so close to the beltway. The surroundings are just stunning, especially as the sun begins to set. The inside space is nice, although I felt it could use a bit of a refresh - it was not quite as warm as I had remembered it but still very nice. We opted for the tasting menu and were not disappointed. We almost didn't get it because of the desert - a cornmeal cake concoction with some grape sorbet. It turned out to be one of the highlights of the six courses. I highly recommend and look forward to returning.

    You wouldn't expect to find a terrific restaurant at the base of a 15-story glass and steel building beside the Washington Beltway. But that's exactly where you'll find 2941. And once you do find, you'll be back often. Modern, but comfortable and surrounded by koi ponds and lake views, 2941 offers a great menu that changes frequently, a serviceable wine list, and attentive service. It has a great bar and the cocktails are inventive. Go.

    We had long heard of 2941, which is not far from our home. It's reputation among my friends had been that it's a bit pricey for the food and the non-city location didn't necessarily appeal to us. However, we gave it a try the other night and found it was a wonderful place! We had three generations of my family at dinner to celebrate the end of the first week of opening a business; the end of the first week of kids back at school; and two wedding anniversaries. The service was impeccable. The food appealed to all the generations and the portions were just right. The decor was modern and the view outside was just lovely! I can see how 2941 would appeal for date nights and romantic celebrations, but it was also great for families!

    For a memorable birthday dinner, we chose to return to 2941. We have been customers since the opening and have never been disappointed with the food, service, or ambiance. Our waiter, Alex was attentive and informative. The lobster pasta and mushroom tartine starters disappeared in moments! The swordfish, halibut and duck breast were cooked to perfection and every bite took us to food heaven. We are looking forward to our next 2941 experience.

    This was always one of our favorite restaurants but over the years as changes were made we stopped going. We have now added this back to our list of favorites! Service was attentive, knowledgeable yet not intrusive. We had the tuna tartare that was excellent as were the steak tartare and the mushroom tarts. The Halibut and the scallops were excellent and a lovely way to end the meal were the warm doughnut holes! We will definitely return to this lovely restaurant.

    Marvelous food. Excellent hostess. Acceptable table service. Valets were rushed and crabby. The sommelier completely ignored my price limit when I asked for help choosing wine--not one bottle she recommended was $50 or under. And, the wine prices seemed high. So, the food was as good as ever, the room is lovely as is the view, but other things have slipped from previous visits. I'd still return as this is my first disappointment there.

    Our table got the Tasting Menu with Winr Pairing. Everything was delicious! I did not like the cobia as well as the other items but that is a matter of personal preference. The lobster carbonara was fabulous--my favorite. The chocolate pecan bar was a delight and surprisingly light. The wines were all excellent but the Pino Grigio really surprised me as I normally do not care for it. All in all a wonderful evening.

    We usually go with the tasting menu because it is always an amazing meal, but this time we tried 2 small bites, 2 apps, 2 app size pastas, and 1 dessert. They were all truly outstanding. We are always happy when we have at least one "wow" moment in a meal -- we had SEVEN at 2941!! Oh, and the sommelier Jonathan ... well we could talk to him all night. Of course he chose the perfect wine, somehow bridging our different palates.
