Was disappointed in the taste of my fillet mignon. I don’t know if it was old or what but it tasted a bit odd. Also was disappointed that they did not have a chocolate dessert.

We went for my friend's birthday and it was a large group of us. The waiter and staff did a great job with managing us, providing great service, and we had an excellent experience! They even personalized the menu to include my friend's name, which was not something we had asked them to do. We also brought an outside cake and they cut it for us, and it was a painless but perfect evening. Thanks!

Interesting menu. Heirloom tomato with burrata was very good, as was cavatelli with morels. Service was pleasant but not attentive. Server walked by table multiple times but we could not get his attention for my friend to get a second glass of wine. We finally had to ask someone else. Service is too aloof and not smooth for such a nice restaurant. Also, we were seated in a booth. The bench I was on had several torn places -- in need of replacement. The restaurant is attractive, the menu is good, the prices are fairly high for northern Virginia. The service should be better.

Another dinner at one of our favorites. This time we went mostly seafood with some wonderful oysters, scallops and halibut. In addition, their beet/strawberry appetizer is a signature tasty treat. Great wine, dessert and coffee rounded out a great evening of exceptional food and great service. A lovely setting and easy to get to, there are many reasons why 2941 is one of the best high-end restaurants in NoVa. In our view, the best.

Absolutely wonderful meal! Best grilled scallops I’ve ever had. Service excellent. Went for my birthday lunch with friends. Pricy but worth it. Definitely will return. My friend had a delicious salad with 3 large pieces of heated goat cheese. Desserts are a work of art and calorie worthy.

Food and service were, as users, very good, and a window table provided us with a lovely, relaxing view of the lake and grounds. The crab salad starter, in particular, was memorable both in flavor and presentation. We have been coming to 2941 for years through various changes in chef, and have always enjoyed it. Be aware that the (free) valet service is adequate but somewhat lacking in execution finesse. For example, even when 2 valets are available, they routinely open only the drivers door upon arrival On a recent visit, on departure, when our car was brought up not was only the door opened only for the driver, but the passenger door as left locked. It wasn’t busy.

Had an amazing salad of fresh greens presented in a bouquet on the plate! Tied together with scallions. I am vegan, and they were nice enough to make me a delicious off-menu entree of roasted veggies with mushrooms and herbed olive oil. So good!

Excellent dining experience, from complimentary valet parking to dessert. Quiet. 35-40 foot ceiling with one wall all glass looking out on verdant garden and lake. The waiter was responsive, pleasant, and non-intrusive (he never asked how "everything was"...Yeah!). The pairing of wine with each course is the way to go, not only for the pleasures of the palate but for the sommelier's delightful explanations for the pairings.
This restaurant is expensive, and I received what I paid for (from the Chef's Tasting Menu, chose four out of eight dishes, including a dessert, each of which was paired with a 2oz. glass of wine was $120.00). I cannot often do this, but for special occasions, I will definitely return and recommend it to others.

We have been to 2941 several times over the years. This time the attitude of the hosts and server was arrogant and unfriendly. First they refused to seat us before our friends arrived until I pointed out my husband was in a leg cast. We also would have had an extra cocktail at the table while waiting.
While the food was delicious as always, the waiter was inattentive and difficult to engage. He never returned to the table once the entrees were served. Very disappointing experience which will cause us to pause before returning.

This has been my favorite restaurant in the Northern Virginia Area for a good 10 years now. I have never had a disappointing experience here. From the place itself (located in a wooded area that invites the mind to relax) to the service and ultimately the food this restaurant is by far my favorite in the area. We did their tasting menu celebrating Bastille Day and not a single one of the dishes disappointed. EVERYTHING on this evening was simply superb. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough!

The food was as good as ever. Service was slow and sloppy (server dropped food on our table). Since we were rushing to another meeting, the hostess offered to give our parking ticket to the valet. We waited and waited. Then she showed up with our ticket. She clearly forgot. When confronted about it, she claimed she called in our number. The valet said that she had not called it in. More training?

We went for our first anniversary and it was outstanding. From customized menus to a delicious complimentary dessert, it was a great time. The Bees' Elbows cocktail was delicious, and the asparagus veloute was one of the best thing I've ever had in my life. Although a special occasion restaurant, I'll definitely be returning again!

I had the 5 course tasting menu. I like the fact that one can select 4, 5 or 6 courses out of 8 on the tasting menu. Each course was delicious with exquisite flavor profiles. Of particular interest was the chef's "take" on vitello tonnato (i.e., veal and tuna). I also had the frog legs with tomatoes and parsley in a tomato-based broth, the crab-stuffed Dover sole in a yuzu sauce with caviar, the venison chop with a red wine reduction, and the chocolate dessert. My server, Marc, provided impeccable service throughout the meal.

Beautiful restaurant inside, but noisy. The wait staff was great and unobtrusive. We had the octopus - really good and very well balanced. We had the sea trout and duck. Both were very good and the portion size was perfect - not too much. We will definitely recommend and will definitely come here again. Great to have such a good restaurant outside DC.

Saturday night, a busy night and the service was not great, our waiter appeared to work too many tables and as a consequence the service was slow. Probably not his fault.
The food was good, well presented, my cavatelli with mushrooms were excellent, the fried soft shell crab was good, but a little dry in spite of the sauce. In my opinion the chef could find another recipe for the soft shell crab. The dessert list did not have any chocolate on the menu, which was a little disappointing.
Quality/ price ratio? Unsure....
