    I love this restaurant and have dined here many times, but I was disappointed by the food this visit. The homemade pasta stuck together and had a bland taste and the lobster that came with it was dry and also lacked a fresh taste. I hope this was just an off day and I will try this restaurant again.

    2941 is an outstanding restaurant!! My husband, a good friend of ours visiting from the west coast, and I dined at the Chef's table. We absolutely adored 2941. The entire experience was spectacular! Everyone at the restaurant was incredibly accommodating and gracious. The menu was innovative and delicious! It is truly one of the finest dining experiences we have ever had anywhere in the world. We cannot wait to return to 2941!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/16/2008
    New chef isn't quite the equal of his predecessor, but he's new to the restaurant. The food was quite good overall. Scallops and black bass were exceptional. Desserts rather less so. Gnocchi was among the best I've ever had. Service was, as always, extraordinary. I can't comment on the wine list as I'm not drinking, these days. We'll certainly return.

    The food was excellent; the wine list a very good selection in a wide range of prices and the somelier was very helpful, but the service was below par - we were forgotten and it took more than an hour to be served our amuse - it was bread and wine for quite a while. Yes, we'll go back perhaps our waiter was having an off night, but it was most disappointing as we were looking forward to trying 2941 again but with the new chef.

    I feel that since I did not call directly and made the reservation with Open Table, we were given a table towards the front of the restaurant. The server made a mistake with our order but gave us a free dessert for his mistake. Food was a little pretentious but good. Would I go back - not sure.

    We fully understand that portion size need not be enormous. 2941, however, reached a new low and made EVERYTHING so small that when we got home after dinner, we ate. For the very high prices, the food was forgettable.

    Eatingontheroad
    Dined on 3/8/2008
    I've eaten here several times and loved each more than the last. The chef's table in the kitchen is wonderful if you can get it...its loud and noisy and pricey to be in there, but the experience of being in that type of kitchen is second to none. The tasting menu with accompanying wine flight is superior...I've had that three times and it has been an entirely different menu on each occasion. The non-tasting menu options are also wonderful, as is the artwork, the service, and the bar. I provide my highest recommendation to this restaurant.

    I wanted this to be a great restaurant because it's in my neighborhood. I have been four times since it firt opened(trying to give another chance) but, we are not impressed the food is overpriced and only a bit better than average. The room is nice looking with great big windows but, the high ceilings make it a bit noisy and not quite warm enough to be comfortable. Such a shame!

    My husband took me here to celebrate our anniversary and we also dined here for Thanksgiving one year. They offered a buffet which was lovely. Neither of us are from the area and I decided not to cook. The anniversary dinner was great as well. It is a nice, little, quiet, gem in Fairfax. The cotton candy as a finish to dinner was a different and interesting touch. I would definitely recommend and go again. It is a nice choice when you are not in the mood to go into the city but are looking for a fine dining experience.

I highly recommend visiting this restaurant multiple times -- they change menus every season so it's a different experience for each visit.
