I think this restaurant is one of the most beautiful restaurants in the DC area. It’s located in the first floor of an office building in Falls Church with glass walls that run to the high ceilings (25 feet?). The art is colorful and interesting. The koi pond in the front is gorgeous with huge koi, and there is a waterfall that runs down the side. And the food is excellent. I enjoyed the 3 course tasting lunch menu very much. The only negative is the service could be a bit better, and the hostess did not smile once or make us feel welcome. But it’s still a top restaurant.

The locale and food was marvelous. Service was great but simply felt like it was too much. Since it was early and quiet, felt a little hovered over. But overall, excellent as always.

My girlfriend and I did the six-course tasting menu and it was fantastic. The tomato tart and the sable fish really stood out as exceptional, but every course was delicious and executed to perfection. The service provided by Julio was also exceptional. I will most definitely be requesting him when we return.

The ambiance was great. Depending on the dish, food was fair-to-good. The service was spotty. For what you get, this restaurant is way overpriced. For the money I’d go somewhere else.

We were very disappointed. As patrons felt let down. $275 lunch would not have stung if it was good. Unfair to let us down on a special occasion. A wedding was underway and my guest assumes that caused our bad experience. She had to insist the waiter bring my lunch after an extra ordinary long wait. Guess others don't speak up just don't return.

We had a fabulous meal to celebrate my friend’s birthday. Veronica O was our server, she was excellent. Her suggestion for the scallops on risotto with a lobster cream sauce was awesome. She was very attentive and gave special attention to my 95 year old friend, which made her day and put a lasting smile on her face. Another friend had the salad with coat cheese and she commented how fresh it tasted. Great bday celebration!

We visited for our 18th wedding anniversary and it was amazing! We love this place. The food and service never disappoints. Our server rocked. I even made a point to stop and tell the manager how well he took care of us.

I had the lobster fettuccini and my husband had the duck! We loved it! Perfectly prepared.

The service is exceptional as are the food and drinks. We love this place for special occasions and as long as the tuna tartar appetizer stays on the menu, we will keep coming here! Their house old fashioned is also fantastic if you like that sort of cocktail.

The views are also very pleasant, so it's great to go when it's still light out if not for lunch.

We went on Father's Day; the restaurant is not usually open on Sundays unless it's a holiday. They had a three-course prix fixe menu for $85.00. My wife and I both had the oysters and lobster; four of the chilled bi-valves, plus half a lobster tail. The lobster meat had been carefully removed from the shell, cut into bite-size pieces, and put back into the shell. Excellent. My daughter-in-law had the gazpacho, which looked beautiful; my son had the avocado and crab appetizer, which he thoroughly enjoyed. They also offered soft-shell crab tempura, which looked beautiful; I almost ordered it.

Wife had filet mignon and shrimp, son and I had 14 oz rib-eye steak, DIL had risotto. All great. Desserts were fantastic. The service was excellent. I was surprised that a 20% service charge had been added; it was less than I would have tipped, so I added to it.

The place you want to go for a special occasion. The food is superb, the atmosphere is cozy and the staff very attendant! Kudos to Sommelier Keith Bevin, who is both knowledgeable and attentive. We brought 2 bottles of our own wine (2008 Clouds Rest Pinot and 2014 Clouds Rest Sav. Blanc and Keith gave us notes on both and made the experience even more entertaining than normally. I highly recommend 2941, which is a little off the beaten path in Fairfax, but well worth the trip!!
