2941 Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Gorgeous restaurant, delicious food, and excellent service.The swordfish and desserts were especially enjoyable. We had read that Valentine's Day is a bad time to eat at a restaurant, but we always have had a good experience at 2941 and decided they would do Valentine's day well too. The restaurant did not let us down.
Valentine's Day dinner so I figured it wouldn't be all that, I was right. Service was super slow and not that good, the food was so-so and overall for what we paid I could have gotten a much better meal and better service and many other places. Disappointed for sure. Won't be going back and probably wouldn't recommend it to friends.
We had an amazing experience here! For it being Valentine's Day, it didn't feel overly crowded or noisy. We were still able to have a quieter romantic evening. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of information both about regions and the wines themselves. We were trying to pick between two wines and he helped us make the right decision. The food we had was flavorful and cooked to perfection - I would have loved to HUG the chef for the passion and attention to detail (flavors, textures, combinations). It was our first time here and we will DEFINITELY be back soon!
The food was excellent, including the deserts that were not only delicious, but also original which is rarely the case. The service was very poor with food served 5 minutes before wine would come to the table and unnecessary rushed. It is tragic to see the good impression created by the quality of the food being ruined by an unprofessional waiter.
It was a dinner celebrating 5 years of dating, being engaged and getting ready for my first deployment. Food was amazing, it really wasn't as expensive as I thought (still expensive just not as bad) really nice scenery, lighting was beautiful. Overall very much worth it.
2941 is simply an exceptional restaurant. The setting is open and inviting. The wait-staff are seriously professional, both knowledgeable and adept at making their contact helpful but not intrusive. The wine list is accommodating and the food is delicious and beautifully presented. We have not been dining out as often lately, but getting back to 2941 made us realize what we miss in an outstanding fine dining establishment. We had a great meal and look forward to going back.
I want to start by saying all the food at 2941 was delicious! We ordered the sea bass, ribeye, and beef rib special entrees, along with the ceviche appetizer. All of them were delicious!! My only small criticism of the food was that the ceviche portion was quite small, especially given the $17 price tag. All in all, the food was great! However, given the price of the food ($34-$48 entrees), we thought the service and ambiance should have been better. Two of our entrees arrived at our table without the third. The waiter came over a minute later and said he'd look into the problem. He returned and said there had been a "computer problem" so our third entree wasn't ready. It took a good 5-10 min for the third entree to come out. We waited to eat which meant the other two entrees were cold by the time the third arrived. My husband and I ordered sangria cocktails. While my husband liked his, I did not… was expecting something more "authentic." So, in conclusion, the food was very good, but given all the other great restaurant options in the D.C. area, we don't foresee going back to 2941 anytime soon.
First time for lunch though many dinners, which were better experiences. This time the service was slow and 2 of 3 cocktails were made improperly, 1 sent back. Birthday dessert was a disappointment, a spongy raspberry cake. Not at all up to quality of entree which was excellent.
With friends in tow from Los Angeles, we experienced a very choppy night. After ordering our wine plus cocktail, wine poured; 15 minutes later cocktail arrived (but incorrect). After that, we did not see a waiter for 30 minutes. Empty glasses, 45 minutes in and we haven't even been able to place our order--kept trying to attract the waiter who was laser-focused and running back and forth between other tables. "Menu problems--I got after the chef!" per the waiter. What does that mean? Once the food arrived, it was very solid, but not exceptional--our guest loved his duck. Anyway, just disappointing. And that is frustrating with a check of nearly $500. I would have offered my guests far better hospitality at my home.
The restaurant sent an email that they were extending Restaurant Week for an additional week. So, I made a reservation and invited friends. Then it pulled a bait and switch, and did not offer the Restaurant Week menu. The regular menu is considerably more expensive than the one posted, so I felt very uncomfortable having told my friends it would be the Restaurant Week menu.
Excellent food and service. Online menu and wine list are outdated. Big, open space. Upscale, sort of formal business-like atmosphere (it is located in the first floor of a large corporate office building). Quite expensive for what you get. Wine bottle is spirited away to a "serving station," rather than left on the table, requiring you to wait for service to refill glasses. This is probably considered "classy," but is actually annoying.
This restaurant has all the elements it needs to succeed. Unfortunately for our date night, it did not. It's a huge restaurant with high ceilings and interesting, modern decor. First, we were seated at the back at a small 2-top table that had a wall within 2" of it on one side and right next to another couple at a 2-top table -- not appealing at all. Weird, since we were well dressed and the restaurant had just opened 15 min before our reservation and there were plenty of tables. And I had my back to the rest of the restaurant. We asked to be moved -- and the waiter actually had to ask someone else before we could be moved. Certainly they need to put more time into their seating design. But here are the good things: The simple salad ($10) was a work of art -- with edible pansies. We both ordered fish -- delicious enough, but overpriced. Our waiter was excellent. Hubby and I were in deep conversations, but kept being interrupted by the person who filled the water every time we took a sip. Just better training and perception would work there. So, I'm kinda left with "meh." For the prices, everything about the restaurant should wow the diner.
We are regular 2941 patrons and have always enjoyed each visit. This visit was to sample the restaurant offerings and came away as happy as always. The only thing that was different was noticeably more noise from the bar. Perhaps just bar patrons or folks waiting for a table. A minor distraction that did not cause us to have to speak louder than usual.
Great view from the window. Not so great of selection for restaurants. I don't think it represents the level of this restaurant. And the value was not so great even on the restaurant week. The only highlights are appetizer (mushroom soup) and dessert (chocolate cake)
We had a late lunch here during Restaurant Week. The food was delicious as always and the service is always attentive without being intrusive. I think it is a great deal during Restaurant Week, but it would be a little expensive for just a regular dining experience. It would be a terrific anniversary idea. We would love to come back just to have a drink at the bar some evening. Very nice atmosphere!
Enjoyed the restaurant week menu with 6 friends in the lovely dining room. The salmon with spinach and saffron potatoes was delicious, as was the bread. Very good coffee. Nice variety of bread. I had not been here in a very very long time and other than an issue with the waiter and busman clearing the table too early (I was still eating), everything was very nice. Portions of the 3 course $22 menu were sized correctly for that much food.
We don't dine at 2941 often enough, and we were reminded of this fact while taking advantage of the lingering effects of Restaurant Week. In spite of a crowded entry, we were greeted warmly and immediately seated so we could be served by Jean Marc. He quickly greeted us enthusiastically, took our drink orders, and mentioned a couple nice items not on the menu. Our beverages arrived quickly, and our questions answered. One would have thought that choosing from each of the courses would be easy, but each of the selections that Mr. Chemel and his kitchen staff offered proved tempting. We selected very different combinations, but each of the six selections scored 10 for 10. The mushroom veloute proved wonderful and provided me with knowledge of still another of the important 'mother space' In need to mastery. Jean Marc is a star; the several wait staff assisting him also excel. Good work, 2941.
We went to 2941 as one of the new restaurants we wanted to try during the 2018 DC area restaurants' week.
The food and service were excellent. 2941 had a limited options menu but covered our expectations. The quality and presentation of each course were outstanding as well as the service; they were always alert and ready to react to our requests. The wine list is ok.
The location is good, but tricky to find if you go after dark. We ended up parking at the building's garage where the restaurant is located and walked from there.
We will come back!
Having lived in DC for 12 years, I am not one to venture into the burbs unless I absolutely have to. When my friend Helen suggested this restaurant for dinner, I thought "Ugh! Falls Church, VA"! However, I had not seen Helen in a while and I was willing to go wherever she wanted. Plus, they also had extended Restaurant Week.
Helen made a reservation and we were seated right away. Our waitress, Jennifer, greeted us promptly. She was extremely professional and personable. I use to be a waitress, so I have high standards when it comes to service. She did not disappoint. I would venture to say that she was one of the best waitresses I have ever encountered.
Helen and I shared the ceviche and ceasar salad. We both ordered the short rib. The ceviche and ceasar salad were ok. They were tasty without a doubt, but I wouldn't rave about it. However, I would and did rave over the short rib. I savored every bite. I never had better. I'm thinking about it even now as I write this.
When we inquired about dessert wines and ports, Jennifer sent over the sommelier. OMG! He knew so much about wines and ports. I was mesmerized just listening to him talk. Without asking, he even sent a card to the table with the name of the port that we had ordered so that we would not forget it.
I'm still not a fan of VA, but I would come here in a heartbeat any day!
Four friends visited this restaurant for lunch, during the second week of DC Restaurant Week. 2941 was running a special menu for the two weeks, and although the web site said that no other entrees would be offered, there were, nonetheless, additional offerings. We had the Restaurant Week menu, with wine. The selections were sufficiently varied for both food and wine, the portions sufficient, very well presented, and delicious. The service was thoughtful and attentive, without being hovering. The beautifully-decorated restaurant was not full, but even so, tables are well-spaced so that conversation is easy. Definitely good value for money,but will need to return when 2941 is not offering this special menu in order to confirm.
The service at 2941 was impeccable and the food delicious. We had left a note on our reservation that it was our anniversary and that did not go unnoticed. We had a wonderful time and would go back in a heartbeat. Some of the best service we have had in a long time!
Our server Jennifer was very attentive and helpful in navigating the menu with my gluten free requirements. The sommelier on staff that evening was engaging and helpful too when picking a wine bottle for the evening. Only complaint was the heat was on very high for the outside temperature. That being said, it didn't negatively impact the outing as it more so a nuisance.
I went with a friend Saturday night for Restaurant Week. I only live 4 miles away in Arlington, but had never been there before. First, the complimentary valet service is lovely, as is the koi pond in front. The service was impeccable and the courses arrived in the right amount of time in between each course. I had the beet salad, the salmon and the hazelnut cake. All three were amazing! My friend had the parmesan risotto, which was terrific but rich, so she could not finish it. She had the lobster shrimp ceviche which she loved and one of the chocolate desserts. We finished with tea and I raved about my experience on social media. Our waiter told us they were extending Restaurant Week for another week, so I may go and try something new!! Beautiful restaurant, terrific food and outstanding service. I will definitely be back!
