This was our V. Day celebration...two days early to beat the crowds. We dined once before at 2941 on Christmas Eve with my family (party of 8). My biggest disappointment and my husband's, and my sister's on Xmas eve, is that 2941's kitchen staff does not know how to cook a steak. My sister ordered a rare filet and it was well done. We had bought a $250 bottle bottle of bordeaux and were feeling like a good steak to pair with it. We each ordered the ribeye (around $30 each) mid-rare. Hubby's came out mid-well - mine, medium. Seasonings were nothing to write home about. Not sure it is worth our money ($1500 with tip on xmas eve, $500 with tip on V-Day) to go back. Our server, a young man, was just a little too casual for that environment.

The ambiance is definitely the highlight of 2941. The high ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, fireplaces and gigantic mirrors make for a very nice atmosphere. The service there is also outstanding. However, neither my wife nor I thought that the food stood out, especially for the prices. In addition, the portions are VERY small. We eat at many moderately priced restaurants where the food is just as good or better and you get real portions of food. We thought it was worth it for a special occasion (Valentine's Day), but wouldn't recommend it just for the food.

It was a good experience but overpriced for the quality of food and service.

Food and experience excellent has it has been for the past 3 times we have eaten there. The menu shifts each month bringing a new taste to try each time we visit. A caveat on "kid-friendly"... there is not a child's menu, however, they are accommodating for children. The menu items were fine for my little one, but if you have a picky eater they may not be anything for them.

This restaurant always gets high praise in its reviews. And, after my experience, the food was ok, with some dishes being outstanding and some being more blah. Even the bread was underwhelming for such a fancy place. To be fair, I am not much of a "foodie" and didn't understand about 90% of the menu in terms of the different ingredients. My husband and I are also on the young side (mid-thirties) compared to much of the clientele. When we could not find a green salad on the menu, they were able to provide us one but they seemed kind of shocked by the request. The portions are very small and in my opinion, very overpriced. None of the entrees come with a side and there are none available to order. We would not go here again.

2941 is my favorite restaurant in Northern Virginia.
With a beautiful view outside, it was an amazing experience to have an anniversary dinner there. I tried prix fix lunch course but I would say a la carte lunch menus were way better than that. Pork chop with carbonara pasta underneath was a very good choice.
I would go back there again.

This was our first time back to 2941 since the change in chef/owner. I rated the food very good but almost half of the courses were outstanding. They still present a wonderful, wonderful bread basket. We went frequently before the restaurant changed hands and we'll be back. 2941 is a wonderful special occassion restaurant. But be warned - the wine list is pricey even by DC standards.

VERY knowledgeable staff -- answered questions about the menu and food with a full explanation of terms and ingredients. Actually proactively introduced the each food item and its components as it arrived at the table. Friendly unpretentious somelier. Creative dishes, both the food and the servingware and presentation. Not inexpensive, but the $58 4-course prix fix was well worth it.

It was fantastic food as ever and having brought guests from Houston and watch their faces as they ate and watching the blizzard of 2010 in its infancy.....priceless! They absolutely loved the entire experience and understood why I told them this was my/our favorite restaurant. Thank you 2941!

I dropped by with a friend for Resto Week (Feb 2010), and was very disappointed in the food, atmosphere, and service. A far cry from when Jonathan Krinn was the Exec Chef. Not enough wait staff. Those working had snobbish attitudes. No bartender at lunchtime. Food was mediocre and portions small for the prices charged. Now I know why the General Dynamics Execs stopped frequenting the bar and Resto. Will not be going back unless things have changed for the better.

The entire evening was a true delight. We had the tasters' menu which was prepared in exquisite fashion. The food was presented in a delectable manner and it tasted as wonderful as it looked. The portions were a bit larger than they were when we did this dinner two years ago under direction of a different chef. The Lobster ravioli was sublime as were the pheasant breasts. Dessert was extraordinary, a combination of in house ice cream and wafer thin sweets. Service was also a pleasure, not intrusive, but there whenever needed. Each dish was carefully explained at time of service. The evening was well worth the cost.

We went as part of extended restaurant week -- party of four. I ordered the three course fixe prix meal consisting of salmon tartare (chopped raw salmon with lime juice topped with thin small crackers and alfalfa sprouts), a seafood risotto (with shrimp and lobster pieces) and a banana bread pudding with toffee ice cream. The portions were small but adequate for lunch, nicely presented, and tasted very good. Service was a little slow initially but fast after that. Complimentary valet parking. Negatives. Bloody Marys were $10. Glasses of French chardonnay, sauvignon blanc/Sancerre and merlot were $11, $13 and $9. Coffee and cappuccino were $5 each. There is something out of balance with a $20.10 3-course meal and a $13 glass of wine.

We had the "Restaurant Week" menu. The quality of the food was overall good, however, the Roasted Duck Breast entree portion could be enhanced a bit with more duck and less garnish, the 4 slices of duck breast were small and too much fat around them!

Very good restaurant to experience the food, but don't go if you're hungry: portions are quite small (and I'm not a big eater, especially for lunch). Not a place to go if you feel like a big satisfying meal. Very nice for a light lunch. Our waiter forgot to bring us the free popcorn with our bill, I had to ask for it (we were still hungry, and it looked good). Parking lot doesn't say "Valet only". We parked, and then had to leave again to drive to the restaurant.
This was our second time at 2941. We'll go again for a special occasion.

We dined at 2941 during Restaurant Week. The ambiance was lovely, but the food was simply...OK. Not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but not something that would lead us to brag about it to others. We've dined there before and enjoyed the experience immensely, but this particular meal was below par for 2941.

Beautiful setting, good service. Food overall was disappointing. Salmon tartar was bound in a mayonaise that veiled the texture and flavor of the fish rather than enhancing it. The seafood risotto was under-seasoned and fairly soupy - more like a thin lobster bisque with rice in it than a risotto robed in a bisque sauce. The dessert - fried apple gallete - was too reminiscent of a McDonald's apple pie turnover. I had hoped for better.

2941 was a disappointment in view of its high ratings by the Washington publications. The food on the Tasting Menu was good, not great though clearly great effort had gone into the ingredient selection, preparation and presentation. The Alfonsino was outstanding. The lobster ravioli tough, both pasta and lobster. The service outstanding. The wine selection excellent. The food presentation delightful to the eye, but to eat each dish required its complete destruction resulting in wildly different tastes with each forkful. Strangely many of the dishes on the Tasting Menu the night I was there begged for a fish knife, or similar instrument, and one was left chasing bits of food with a spoon, or using a fork as a child's food pusher.

This was our third visit to 2941 and while the food was good, it was not up to the level one would expect from a restaurant this expensive and generally highly rated. In particular, the $21.00 foie gras appetizer was very disappointing and not nearly as good as we have had at this restaruant previously or at other restaurants. It seems that they are trying to be creative and inovative at the expense of excellent taste. Overall the food and experience was not worth the price and it is very unlikely that we will return.

We took a friend to lunch for Restaurant Week. We had been many times, it was a new experience for her. She had spent considerable time doing research on the menu posted online. We were really tickled by her explanations of each unfamiliar ingredients - she had made notes which she recited before ordering. She is an accomplished cook and was impressed by the combinations as well as the foods presented. You sure made our selection of restaurants look good! Thanks.

We had a marvelous meal which we savored. The servings were small but adequate for lunch. The bread was delicious. A hearty appetite might find portions too small. I rated the service as only good, because when delivering each of our three courses, the server missed all three in terms of who ordered what.

A friend and I went for lunch for the January prix fixe special. 2941 has an outstanding reputation and continues to excel. The salmon tartar balanced different kinds of spices, flavors and textures in a delicious way. Grilled Escolar presented a perfectly cooked whitefish on a bed of potatoes and a gently spiced sauce. Finally, bread pudding just melted with a carmel sauce--yum! Discreet, attentive service--and the amazing ambiance. Not only are the views of the garden delightful, the art collection is on par with the major museums downtown. It makes for a subtly delightful experience.
