    We had a lovely night at 2941. The service from the minute we walked in was fantastic. Our waiter was so insightful and really helped up in determining which food to order. And the food was, well, amazing. Every bite I wanted more and more. Highly recommend for anyone wanting a fine dining experience.

    I have left several glowing reviews of 2941 and prefer not to repeat myself about this fantastic restaurant. But I must pay three special tributes. First, Chef Chemel continues to innovate and delight with his incredible cuisine. This trip had us swooning over the myriad, distinct flavors in his butternut squash soup. The wagyu beef tartare, duck and ribeye were outstanding as well. Second, James has been able to curate a more robust wine list, teeming with delicious wines from all over the world. Finally, Julio once again impresses with his convivial service, always there when needed without being obtrusive. And maybe a final word about the unsung service heroes that make it so you never have to wait long for a water glass to be refilled or a used plate or glass to be cleared. Thank you all.

    Special thanks to Sion for being able to fit in our reservation last minute for our two birthday celebrations! It was a special experience to be able to celebrate at our favorite restaurant with our favorite staff. The Valentine's Day menu was absolutely stunning and delicious. The tartare was perfectly crafted. The duck was flavored and cooked to perfection. Even the dessert was an excellent finisher to the wonderful evening. We always really appreciate the wonderful service that Jean-Marc provides each and every time. Truly loved it!

    Being it was our first time at 2941 restaurant, it was a great experience. We had the five-course tasting menu and each dish was wonderful, especially the Saffron Risotto, as recommended by our waiter. Our waiter provided excellent service. He was attentive and knowledgeable of each dish.

    The chef's tasting menu with wine pairing is the way to go at this elegant restaurant. Jean-Marc, our server, was absolutely perfect. He came at just the right time to describe each course. We never felt overwhelmed and we never felt ignored. We enjoyed everything. James the sommelier, was entertaining and knowledgeable about each wine pairing. We always learn something from him, and we feel that we know a little about wine. We love this restaurant -- it is a beautiful place and I'm so happy to see customers dress up to come here.

    Kept seeing 2941 on lists of the best Northern VA restaurants so gave it a try for Valentines day. We were not disappointed! First of all, the food was fantastic, albeit a prix-fixe menu for V Day. Probably the best ribeye that I've ever had. And the first course was a poached lobster on squid ink pasta with some sort of lobster sauce that I could have eaten a gallon of! And dessert was some delicious decadent chocolate cake that was to die for. The service was excellent as well, never had to wonder where the wait staff was. And the big, open glass enclosed dining room has a wonderful lake (pond?) view and is relatively quiet (probably because of the 30-ish foot ceiling height. Great place for a date (OK, its not cheap but that was expected....$$$$ out of 5) and I can't wait to go back and try the full menu.

    We had the six-course tasting menu and wine pairing. The food was great, but the service was the best I have ever experienced. Each course was described to us in detail but out proficient server. The sommelier was excited about the wines he selected and detailed the region, process, grape, and vintage of each glass. What a fun and impressive evening.

    Would have provided five stars since food was delicious and our waiter and wine guides were superb, however the food took a long time to come between courses. We had been seated for about 45 minutes before the first course came out. Everything was cooked to perfection and tasted great.

    2/10/24 This restaurant is what dreams are made of!! Ohhhh, WOW!!!!! We went for there for our very FIRST time on a Saturday and parked at the building's business parking garage. First, you have to walk a little to get to the steps dow to the absolutely GORGEOUS cobblestone walkway that leads you up to the ever so beautiful pond filled with these tiny and, oh, so lovely little red koi! They became all skittish as we approached, but we just kindly stood still and took in the moment and snapped a few photos. We then proceeded further down the beautiful cobblestone walkway to the restaurant where it just became more AMAZING since we could then begin to hear waves crashing and started to wonder where they were coming from! We turned the corner, and there it was!! A gorgeous waterfall with HUGE KOI JUMPING and curiously looking at us wondering if we were going to feed them!!?!?? LOL!! It certainly was quite the experience to begin our dining here for the very first time!! Since it was our first time here, we opted to go with the Chef's Tasting Menu so I added the wine pairing since my friend was the DD (thank you). Can I just say that this was most likely one of THE...BEST...EXPERIENCES...OF...MY...LIFE??!!???!!! Wow!!!! Just WOW!!! Mind BLOWN!!!!! NO WONDER this restaurant is so acclaimed and won so many awards!!!! We will most definitely return again and again, but only for very special occasions since the price is not for the faint of heart, but the quality of service throughout the incredibly fabulous Chef's Tasting Menu, and I do mean F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S, will have us returning FOR SURE!!!!!!! From start to finish...all of our servers and sommeliers...everything was SPOT ON!!! We could not have asked for anything more, and we left the restaurant extremely satisfied and our tummies full and over the moon!!!! Thank you so so much for the wonderful service and ever so incredibly scrumptious food!!!!

    We had the chef's tasting menu. At first glance you think it may be expensive but the dining experience was definitely worth every penny. 2 hours of talking, drinking and eating 5 courses. The flavors and ingredients were different than usual and all went well together. Definitely will go back for another special occasion.

    The food and service was very good but can’t say it was excellent. I always loved every dish I had here. This time, I found all the dishes I had were a little too salty for me and my friend. The sauces were good and accompanied the ingredients very well. I just found them too salty. It’s the first time I wasn’t 100% satisfied. The services are very good here. I just felt the waiter’s attention wasn’t fully on us. We felt he was rushing when spoke to us then rushed to another table. Maybe had too many tables to attend.

    One of us ordered the Chef’s selections, while the other went a la cart. The preparations surprised us, with lovely combinations of fish and pasta, in varied sauces. The lobster with pasta, and the scallops were especially notable. Other restaurants cited by Beard have sent their prices sky high, while 2941 has stayed costly but fair. We have recommended 2941 in the past, and we continue to do so now.
