Absolutely fabulous experience. Went here for the first time for our 10 year anniversary and it was the perfect location. We had the March 2019 Asian Dinner Tasting Menu with the wine pairing and it was an incredible experience, start to finish. Service was perfectly attentive without interrupting conversation and our server provided just the right amount of guidance on the menu without being overbearing or too opinionated. The value dollar for dollar of the tasting menu was just incredible, and between the gorgeous ambiance and fabulous service, we have already planned our next visit back in a few weeks for my husband's birthday! Great find!

The Asian menu at 2941 was an interesting change. The pan-Asian offerings suited us both, and we especially enjoyed the fish and pork dishes. The desserts were original and elegant. The restaurant and staff also made a special effort this birthday luncheon. :-)

Everything -- from the Valet Parking at the outset to giving us souvenir menu at departure (we were celebrating an 85th Birthday) -- was done just right. The service was knowledgeable and gracious, with every food item tastefully and artfully presented.

Pricey as usual, but our party of four was happy about the very good and fresh food. Wines are, however, overpriced. The restaurant provides a a nice and elegant ambiance for a celebration, but can do better on birthday desert. Given the reputation of this place, during my last visit I was a bit disappointed by the service. It was rushed between courses, without attention on whether we finished the first round of drinks and the appetizers - I felt like we lacked the proper attention although the place was not too busy (a Tuesday evening). Our server did not raise to the usual level of expectation on attention, politeness, elegance and and sophistication. I hope the restaurant will find this feedback useful.

I picked 2941 as a quiet, comfortable lunch spot to treat two old friends who enjoy fine food and wine. We were not disappointed. The butternut squash soup is as delicious as ever. The fun of watching the soup being poured into the soup dish in a beautiful golden stream is a great beginning. I combined the soup with the mushroom tartine for a lighter lunch. My companions had French onion soup, Ceasar salad, Greek salad, and we selected a couple of excellent wines and topped it all off with an eclair for dessert. The restaurant was quiet, comfortable and we stayed and stayed to talk about old times with nobody rushing us out the door. Worth every penny. Highly recommended.

We had such a special experience on Monday, March 4th at 2941. The staff was incredibly accommodating. They printed a customized menu with my girlfriend's name and occasion gracing the first page. It was a delightful surprise for her, and the food could not have been more perfect. We happy to really enjoy mushrooms and the special dishes prepared by the chef were delightful. I was further impressed by the knowledge of our waiter as he explained the dishes and perfectly paced our meal. He also arranged for the expansion of the Rohan Duck Duo dish into a larger portion for myself. Many thanks to his kind service. Our evening ended with a special happy birthday candle on a vanilla raspberry dessert, ending our evening with just the perfect touch. It was a very memorable evening and 2941 helped make the special day something magical. Many thanks.

Will definitely be back. The pistachio crusted lamp loin is one of the best lamb dishes I’ve ever had. Our server Jennifer was delightful. The first course, Crudo, was a little underwhelming, but everything else was magnificent. I don’t drink alcohol but the bartender was able to whip up mocktails based on a desired flavor profile and they were excellent.

The ambiance is fantastic, it’s a very romantic and beautiful setting. Unfortunately, that is where the positive comments stop. Our server was not overly knowledgeable about the menu, and had to keep going back to the kitchen to ask questions. We ordered dinner off the bar menu for our kids, and even after ordering duck burgers for them, the server came out and said the chef didn’t recommend them for kids. We told them we wanted the duck burgers anyways, but we are suspicious that what the kids were served was some other type of burger. Whatever it was caused my son to have an allergic reaction.

The adult food was substandard. It started with shrimp cocktail appetizer that contained small shrimp with a tomato foam that had no flavor. It continued with soups that were lukewarm at best. The butternut squash soup was served with an apple cider foam that tasted more like a dessert. The entrees were equally disappointing. The raviolis were a tiny portion and not very tasty, the Steamed Mero was flavorless and served over lentils creating an uncomfortable taste combination. The Amish chicken was alright, probably the best of the 3. All in all, we expected MUCH BETTER for $250. Thankfully we had a gift certificate.

Have been dining at 2941 over the years. I know it had changed hands over time but the dinner choices have become disappointing. Not much was appealing in the regular dinner menu, and what we settled for was just so so. Still enjoy the ambiance.

Our first visit will not be our last -- really impressed with the attentiveness and attention to detail by the staff. While I was hoping for WFPB (or possibly vegan) options, the vegetarian offerings were delicious, and they accommodated a few "hold the" requests as we aimed for some semblance of compliancy! We particularly enjoyed the preparation and presentation -- from the harvest salad to the pasta, entrees, and dessert -- all were superbly made and unabashedly delicious. The cocktails and wine options were the icing on the cake.

The food and drinks were fantastic. The location is great, as it is offset from the main road allowing for seclusion. The waiter was very helpful in selecting our drink of choice and attentive to anything else we needed. The main bar made one of the best old fashioned's I have ever had. Highly recommended.

Extremely over-priced!!!. A limited menu aside from the Valentines Day “specials” being offered. Only thing good about the experience was that our meals arrived hot. Felt rushed the entire night. Service was left to be desired. Waiter had absolutely zero personality and felt we were putting him out. Left hungry and annoyed for what we just paid shelled out. I would not recommend nor would I ever go back. There are far better places with far better food, value and ambiance. Not sure what the attraction is and certainly can see why it’s fallen off the Washingtonian 100.

Very impressive meal. We had a Valentine's Day pre fixe menu that was prepared very well and it fostered a very efficient mall (less than 1.5 he's) Since it was a limited menu it's easy to set the dinner page so really curious how it would be in a normal nice with now variables.

I was hoping for more variety on the wine by the glass list but there were enough options for most people.

Complementary valley parking is great especially on a cold winner evening and they were very quick.

Overall, really good meal and we'll return for a normal menu evening.

The service was amazing. They are very efficient with their timing. The servers move smoothly that I never notice when my water gets refilled. The food is phenomenal and the absolute perfect amount. The only reason why I gave them 4 stars was because I ordered my filet mignon as medium but the first 2/3 of my steak that I ate was medium-well and the last 1/3 was a perfect medium. Regardless, it was delicious and I enjoyed it. The ambience was great. The tables were far a part that you felt like you had privacy to enjoy conversation and not overhear other conversations. Overall, I would definitely come back and I have never been disappointed.

We went on Love Day or Valentines Day so it was busy, might not be the case on other nights. Made a reservation over a week in advance. They have it together, that’s for sure! Quick service, very attentive, great creative food. The kind you have to take pictures of. We ordered wine and bourbon, good selections there too. There was complimentary valet and coat check. Loved the music! Not that it was blaring but loud enough to hear and good selections. Helped set the ambiance. We are already planning to go back again when it’s warmer have the experience of the beautiful fountains in the front too.
