The food was simply outstanding - - high compliments to the chef! We enjoyed the best fillet mignon and scallops ever tasted by both of us. The relaxed ambiance and delicious food was much appreciated, especially against the background of our lockdown present time. THANK YOU from two very grateful clients.

We've been coming to 2941 since 2004. Initially it was a truly special event restuarant that we saved up to go to once or twice a year. It's gone down hill since then - the Thanksgiving meal was really mediocre. I hope the standards raise again and we're able to keep going back and enjoying what was a very special place for us.

Wonderful way to spend our thanksgiving. Everything was top notch. The only thing we noticed that could be addressed in the future was the carpeting seemed a bit tired. Thank you for a magical evening!

A wonderful Thanksgiving meal - great for a small household of 3 that did not need to have a huge Turkey at home.

The food was great and service was outstanding. My husband is at Covid high risk category but a corner table put us in a very comfortable socially-distanced situation.

A great choice from a la carte to three-course, five-course, or six-course menus. We had the three-course menu and it was delicious. Perfectly cooked halibut, delicious tuna crudo and fabulous mushroom soup. One of our group did a la carte and had duck, which he loved. Service was wonderful. A gem of a restaurant.

We were very disappointed with 2941 (for the second time). The food was good but the service was not. It was very, very slow. The waiter apologized twice for the slow kitchen, but that doesn't excuse waiting for up to 40 minutes between courses with a tasting menu. And we ordered a second round of drinks that didn't come and we had to ask for them a second time. That's not what I expect with a $300 tab. The food was generally good, but a langoustine dish that should have been amazing lacked adequate salt and so didn't have much taste. Again, not what I expect with at $300 tab. We've tried to love this place twice now, and it has fallen short both times.

We've been loyal customers at 2941 for many years and have dined there during the pandemic. Unfortunately, we have been disappointed in the menu's appetizers and entrees this fall. The entree's just have not been up to the standard we've experienced at the restaurant in the past, with the exception of the filet mignon. 'And, the choice is limited, which we understand because of the economy, but if you want to dine there more than once you're stuck. Two of the appetizers were awful (i.e., soup that's way too salty; a huge plate of chopped red beets) , but you cannot go wrong with the tuna tartare which is always delicious. We usually leave 2941 having had a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience but unfortunately plan to cancel our next reservation.

An outstanding choice for a special evening or event, I am always amazed at the number of people who can afford to attend a restaurant of this quality and expense while dressed down in jeans and with toddler children. The atmosphere is upscale, the food of the highest quality and the ambience suitable for a romantic or anniversary extravaganza.

We ordered the lobster Thermador which was served cold for three of us. It was terrible with mustard and broiled cheese over it. Fortunately it was taken off our bill after I brought it to the waiters attention. It was a huge disappointment and for $48 per entree was certainly overpriced.

The food was amazing, and the staff had a lot of energy. We went on a Wednesday around 7pm in October, and there were a total of 5/6 different small groups for the entire restaurant, so social distancing is easy here. My only real gripe is that they did not have valet parking, on this day, which is totally fine, but the walk from the parking lot to the restaurant and back is pitch black. There is not enough lighting here for patrons to get to their car at night when there is no valet parking.

The very best restaurant in the entire Washington DC area continues to deliver, in spite of the pandemic. The best food, the best ambiance, the best service and without a doubt the best Chef! And their "2941 Meals at Home" are delicious and super generous servings. So proud of the staff of this amazing restaurant for rising to the challenges because of the pandemic.

We went for my birthday which was also restaurant week. We each got an app, entree, and dessert. The Tuna Tartare app was incredible. All the did was great and the service was exceptional. Highly recommend for a special occasion.

This is one of our go-to restaurants for special occasions. It is a bit pricey but the food, service and ambiance is excellent. Also, I felt there was a very small risk with respect to Covid 19. They have substantially reduced the number of tables and spread them quite far apart. All of the staff wore masks all the time as did the customers going into and out of the restaurant. Of course, the customers did not wear masks while they were at the tables where they ate.
