Very attentive service. Main courses were excellent. Desserts ok - had the cocoa pod. Good with coffee. If you are looking for a place to have a quiet business dinner, this is a great location just off the beltway.

It's way too expensive. I misunderstood the prices on the menu when ordering the November Spice Tasting Menu and wine pairing. I thought the price for wine pairing included the food. I ended up with a $500 meal for two people. No meal is worth $500. I expected to spend $300 to $400.

We have been enjoying the fine cuisine of Chef Chemel for over 10 years. We keep returning for the exquisite dining experience, the best in Northern Virginia. The top quality of menu items has remained consistent over the years. We are extremely lucky to have 2941 Restaurant located near us.

I would go back for lunch but would try a different dish. The mushroom appetizer was excellent but I was a bit disappointed in the goat cheese, beet salad. The ambiance was fine and the service was excellent. Thanks for the valet parking!

This was an amazing meal. We have been to France 10 times and this was every bit as delicious as a Michelin starred restaurant. The wine pairings were excellent. Loved the ravioli and the butternut squash the best. What a delightful evening. We will be back.

We were a threesome having a business lunch at 1:30pm. Everything was handled well. We had butternut squash soup which was amazing. It had egg white in it and under the egg white were small chopped pieces of butternut squash and spices. Lovely. For the main course one had the white truffle risotto, expensive but totally worth it. The others had tuna tartare which was delicious. We skipped dessert becauswe we had eaten too much of the delicious bread. Will definitely be back.

Celebrated my wife’s birthday at 2941 this week. Second time there. Outstanding food and service. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and food. Tuna tartare is still my favorite. Highly recommended as one of the best fine dinning restaurants in DMV.

I went here for my anniversary on Tuesday night. I am a former fine dining restaurant employee for over 15 years and eating here makes me want to get back to it! Everything was perfect from the venison to the scallops my wife had. It is not the typical Tuesday night outing for us, but for a special occasion, it WAS PERFECT!!! Our server, whose name I failed to retain, was professional and charming. Long story short, it was FANTASTIC!!!

Food and wine were fabulous as always. Keith the sommelier was great, and they recognized our anniversary - a nice touch. The service was really slow though - our waiter tended to disappear for 30-40 minutes at a time.

This was our second time back and we had a stellar experience, yet again. The food is phenomenal - I haven't done the tasting menu but both times we've ordered several apps and two entrees, and shared and everything has been top-notch and perfectly flavorful.

Both times we have dined here were special occasions and the staff goes above and beyond to celebrate. We will definitely be back.

Very good restaurant to check out for the amazing tasting menu and wine pairing! I'd never have known this place even existed as it's essentially in a business park on the first floor of an office building. And while the decor could use some updating IMO, there are no adjustments needed to the amazing food and drink offered. We splurged a bit since it was our anniversary, however from the bartender quickly cleaning up my husband's broken drink, to the knowledgeable server and sommeliers, it was worth every cent.

Great place. Can't speak more about the food. They takes the type of food I don't normally eat/like, and made me a dish I could not stop eating. I've yet had a dish I do not like. Great atmosphere, great service, attentive staff, and very good for special occasion.

The food is pretty expensive for such crummy service. WOW. The sommelier was lovely but the waiter was S-L-O-W and not in a good way--We had to rush out and barely had time to finish entrees after close to 90 minutes.

Our meal here was fabulous! I wish our waiter would have explained the menu a little better, instead he was more interested in recommending us one of the more expensive bottles of wine. I was looking forward to trying the tasting menu, but ended up just ordering off the regular menu they had that evening. The tuna tar tar was delicious, I could have eaten two of them! I had the scallops, which were great, but I wish there were more of them. We had the cheese plate for dessert and ended the meal satisfied and happy!

Although the restaurant is located in an office building, you soon forget that. It has large windows the look out on a park setting. It has tall ceiling, open space, tasteful decorations and quiet background music. It was our anniversary and we we treat wonderfully including a special menu with a anniversary greeting and we were given a Happy Anniversary dessert. The service was attentive and the food was excellent.

That was perfection. The oysters were and a clean with a slight salt and a sweet finish. The tuna tartare- fresh with an avocado mousse! The main courses- oh so good. The lobster fettuccine was a good balance of a vodka like sauce without overpowering the lobster. The duck was done perfectly. Scallops with risotto- perfectly al dente and the right amount of salt. Also- did I tell you that they printed special menus that aIs Happy Anniversary for my parents!!! The service was impeccable. Loved it

First time dining at 2941. I read that this place was a great place for “romantic dinners”, so I went there to celebrate our anniversary with my fiancé and I have to admit, this place held up to my expectation. The outdoor scenery is impeccable! At first we were seated at an area that was a little too cramped so I asked our hostess if it was any way possible to switch seats and we wanted to make sure that if we switch that she will still be our hostess. Veronique (hostess) was very kind to switch us at our request. Her service was amazing! You can tell she does her job with passion. Before we ordered our food, the way she described the food and it’s taste was spot on with the actual food. Food was amazing and even better service from Veronique! Definitely will visit again.

Went on a quiet Thursday night, and I was worried it would be too fancy, but it was perfect. Calamari appetizer was amazing, entrees were great, and mixed drinks were very tasty. Waiter was a true pro. My wife and I drove separately, and she after arriving first she texted me "use valet! much simpler than parking!" And it was!

This was the fourth time my wife and I have visited 2941. This restaurant is a hidden jem.
The food and service is fantastic (as always) and their sommelier was not only very helpful
but he was entertaining as well. I would recommend 2941 to anyone with a discerning taste for good food.

The decor is elegant but modern. We got the 8 dish tasting menu, and everything was great, especially the smoked chanterelles. We also got the sommelier wine pairing, and the sommelier made great choices and took time to tell you about the wine and why it was paired with the dish.
