The food was well crafted and executed. The best, in my opinion was the very lightly battered calamari. The eclair dessert was fun. Coffee was actually very good.

Fantastic restaurant! The food is amazing and the ambience is wonderful. Service is attentive without being intrusive and the server was knowledgeable and engaging. We wanted to experience dinner as we had attended their wedding event last month. The appetizers were great and we wanted to try a full meal, which was just as good. We are glad we chose 2941 for our reception next summer!

Great for special celebrations. Food and service are excellent. But you do pay for what you get. Not easy to find the entrance at night. If you haven't been, it's a good idea to go by in the daytime in advance.

This dinner was to celebrate our son and daughter-in-law's 25th anniversary and it was perfect. Everyone was aware of the occasion and made the entire evening very special.

It is a memory and meal we will always remember.

I'm probably spoiled by a dinner I had at a different restaurant just a week prior to our visit to 2941, but (by comparison) I found the service here to be quite competent but more "business-like" than the personal touch I got at the other place. That being said, the food was excellent. (I'm a pushover for duck and theirs was outstanding.)

The wine service was interesting (in a good way). We ordered wine by the glass and the server poured from the bottles rather than simply bringing over glasses of wine. (No chance of substitutions, inadvertent or otherwise, with this method. I appreciated that.

To celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary, we did not hesitate to choose 2941 Restaurant. We have been returning there for the past few years because of the food and service. On this most recent occasion, we enjoyed goat cheese appetizers, salmon and duck breast. The desserts of panna cotta and noisette mousse were to die for, and of course, we are already planning our next visit. The chef autographed a special anniversary copy of the menu for us and we were presented with a 2941 anniversary treat!

2941 provides a very high quality dining experience with excellent food and servicein a fabulous setting in suburban Virginia near the Beltway. My wife and I selected 2941 to celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary. We began with a champaign toast followed by wine from 2941's excellent wine list. The restaurant offers a number of excellent tasting menus but we chose to order a la carte. Each dish was excellent; the service was attentive but subtle, and the setting with the view of the trees and the lake was as always awesome. 2941 is a great venue for a special occasion or just a nice dinner or lunch.

We always enjoy this restaurant and this latest trip was for the game tasting dinner. Flavors were very good. Instead of the wine pairing we ordered a couple of bottles of wines for the four of us. The wine list is excellent as is the sommelier but there is not a good range of prices. That said we chose one of the lowest priced French reds because we like a specific region and it was half of what the others were - the experiment paid off and it was a good wine. Dining at 2941 never disappoints us and and we love the daffy burgers when we choose the bar over the dining room.

The food is excellent. However, they now have a fixed-price menu and have decreased the variety on the regular menu. The service was terrible! 2941 was always my "go to" place for special occasions. We will probably not go again even though the chef remains a first-class chef.

My husband and I met another couple for lunch to celebrate the 50th anniversary of my first meeting of the other wife when we moved into the same dorm our freshman year of college. She and I had been to 2941 in the past but not with our husbands. The food was excellent, the service attentive without being hovering and the pace of the meal was leisurely. When the Chef found out what the occasion was, he sent us some extra desserts to sample along with the ones we ordered. None of us turn down dessert! It was such a nice touch to honor a 50 year friendship.
