Chef created an AMAZING dessert comprised of coconut sorbet, pineapple compote, rum gelée, gluten free coconut crumble, pineapple foam. Never had anything like it, and was it good!

We recently visited 2941 for the first time, part of a professional group that gathered there. Overall, our evening was quite lovely and the food was - again, overall - quite good. Many of us had the sea bass over shiitakes (tender, moist, delicious) as our entree; there were also smiles of satisfaction over the beet salad, the tuna tartar and the fried calamari appetizers. The wine list had some excellent options, albeit hugely marked up (no surprise - it's just a bit gross to pay $95 for a bottle I can find for $40). And the ambiance is lovely; the view even more so. This is a fabulous location for a special occasion.

The only reason not to give more stars in some categories were certain "cheap" notes:
(1) the bread basket. Seriously - that bread could easily have come from Giant Food's bakery. And it was a little dry/stale. And the butter? For this level of dining, do something fun with it! A few grains of sea salt, even...
(2) the desserts. While delicious, they were ridiculously insubstantial. We ordered a few so that each pair could enjoy one dessert between them, and I'm not even sure we could quantify what we ate as "spoonfuls." More like tiny nibbles.

Small tweaks could turn a lovely evening into a completely memorable one, even when paying a pretty hefty check at the end.

We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I mentioned this in the optional comment when reserving on Open Table. They greeted us with personalized menus. It seemed as if the chef was only cooking for us. One of the entrees (quail) was a bit delayed because they redid it since the first one wasn’t to the chef’s satisfaction. We didn’t mind the short extra wait, had more time for conversation. When it came out, it was the best quail we ever had. All dishes were exquisite! And of course desert was a surprise too as it was on the house due to the wait! The chef came at the end to greet us too!! It was quite the culinary experience. We will definitely be back.
Some things to consider: most tables seemed to have business meetings, there was also a large (loud) gathering. The space is big and tall and quite noisy. But the view of the lake and the extraordinary culinary experience made up for it.

This is my second visit to 2941 for lunch. While I have not been there for dinner my business meetings went well and the servers are both attentive but respectful of the need to let business take the front seat. The food was very good and portions just right. Other servers made sure the water glasses were full. Definitely a good restaurant to host a business lunch. Would like to try a business dinner in the future.

I am in disbelief- what happened to this place? Food was 4 stars, but I don't think I have ever has such horrible service. Went for wife's birthday, Monday night. Started out wrong from the start. Waiter was vague at explaining the menu – did not understand the ingredients, and when he did not know something, it was the craziest thing – he made stuff up or he pushed back like we were asking too much info. Got the cocktails wrong 2 times, didn’t know the basics about wine (tannins, anyone?), and made what should have been a great dining experience, into one that was exasperating. There was no vegetarian entree and I politely asked what the chef might do for a creative substitution with vegetables. Waiter came back, “the chef can throw some veggies together.” What??? I asked him what vegetables, and he did not know. How is it prepared - don't know. He made me feel like I was asking for too much information. The closest I got to a response was, "do you want pasta in there, or a red sauce." After asking 2 or 3 different ways to get him to go back to the cook find out, I gave up. Ordinarily I would have asked for a different server and / or to speak with the chef, but I just ordered a soup off the apps menu and told them to serve it with the entrees. I didn't want to distract from our celebration of the birthday girl.

The worst part was that he ruined the presentation of the presents. My children had handwritten cards for their mom, with heartfelt messages that they had taken over an hour to compose. Server poorly choreographed the plate presentation with horrible timing. Bulldozed right through their poems. I was recording the kids reading out their cards to their mother, but this guy put the food on the table obstructing my recording. I tried to signal to hold a moment, and the waiter responded, “but your food is hot right now.” Are you serious?
We won’t be returning here.

We have been frequent diners at 2941 over the years, and always very happy with food, ambiance, and service (well, they could return to having loaves of the awesome olive bread on the hostess stand for you to take home in the later evening after dinner...probably a remedy to throwing away unused loaves but so awesome!) The service on Easter Sunday was disappointing. Our waiter, whom we recognized from many past meals, could not be bothered to make eye contact -let alone a pleasant exchange along the lines of "welcome, happy Easter,"as he took our order. He vanished before we could tell him our selection from the children's menu for our younger daughter; we had to flag someone down to make sure she would get something to eat. We never saw him again. I would have had a glass of wine with my meal, but no one inquired if I would like one (I had an aperitif, and had finished it before the first course was cleared). The main course portion size was more than I could finish, however all three desserts the adults ordered were tiny! It was an extremely disappointing experience at a restaurant we know well. And no, the dining room was NOT busy-we were there for a 4:30 reservation on Easter Sunday... most of the traffic had been earlier. Only about half a dozen tables were occupied. Maybe they were tired-whatever it was, it showed, and it was not worth $80/person. It will be a good while before we return.

We were excited to dine at 2941, in its hidden oasis. The waitstaff was excellent, and the setting mellow, despite a full dining room. The French food was elegant, but for $75/person for 3 courses, not a great value. The appetizers and desserts, except for the Cherry Bombe, were tiny. Tasty and unusual, yes, but really tiny! Only the main courses approached reasonable serving sizes. Since all beverages, coffee, tea were extra, and a 20% tip was added, we left wondering how far our $300+ could have gone for a different brunch in DC, or closer in. We would hesitate to book a special occasion, prix-fixe meal here again.

It was a great pleasure going back to the 2941 Restaurant after a few years. The ambiance is top notch, a very beautiful restaurant. The food and service was outstanding. I will go back in a few weeks with a few close friends, who are foodies. I would highly recommend the 2941 Restaurant, and I consider it one of the best restaurants in the Washington, DC area.

2941 has seriously up'ed their game. It was always good food and service, but this recent trip proved that this is a great go to for haut cuisine. The tasting menu was fantastic. The chicken dish, cooked and served sous vide style, was the most amazing chicken any of use have ever tasted. The salmon on lobster bisque foam was also outstanding. Everyone loved their dishes. The ability to bring your own wine with a reasonable corking fee was nice. Service was outstanding. This is great for business, date night, special occasions, but seriously, please leave the toddlers at home. No one wants a little kid rolling around on the floor when you are at this type of restaurant.

Service was excellent and the overall experience was fun. I've eaten lunch twice and dinner once at 2941 and have not been disappointed. My only suggestion is to expand the appetizer and entree menu for dinner. Add a chicken or foul dish. My wife generally doesn't eat seafood and chose the salmon - which was delicious. But she doesn't want to eat salmon every time. I had the beef and it was excellent.

Simply, the best meal that we enjoyed at any restaurant, easily surpassing Michelin 3-starred luxe spots or those highly-rated by local/international publications. Executive Chef Bertrand Chemel, new Pastry Chef Nicholas Pine, and the 2941 team brought us to Cloud 10! Everything we ordered was superb to exquisite, perfectly seasoned and harmonious every bite or sip of the way. Being Asian American Restaurant Week, we enjoyed the impeccable New American-French interpretations of notable dishes from East and Southeast Asian cuisines. Our favorites among the savory courses were the Miso Soup with Lobster-Shrimp Dumplings and the Whole Fried Snapper with Spicy Basil Sauce and Steamed Rice. The former was heightened by the meticulous broth and truly lovely dumplings, while the latter was sublime texture and spectrum of flavors. Among the sweets, we loved both the Sakura and Spicy Mango--both full of fantastic flavors, aromas, and textures while presented as works of art. Add to it all, outstanding service and the most beautiful ambiance, the overall dining experience was truly spectacular from start to finish!

We are never disappointed and Friday’s luncheon experience followed suit. We were intrigued by the Asian Week price fixe menu and booked for that reason. The entrees of calamari and chicken sate were delicious as was the Thai curry main course. Dessert was wonderful, and the French/American/Asian fusion was an unmitigated success. We can’t wait to return for another innovation week.

This is one of the better restaurants that we visit from time to time. We went in this time to celebrate my daughter and son in law's anniversary. It was Asian Week and we decided to try their tasting menu. It was OK good... their usual level of excellence was somewhat lacking this time. Waiters were unusually slow this time around. We still plan to return as hoping that the next time they will be back to the 5's that they normally deserve.

Ate at Asian Restaurant Week. Meh. Flavors were lacking. No spoons pre-provided for two soups. Staff didn't know what chopsticks were.
At least they moved away some from "everything floral" which really should be the theme of the restaurant.
