Its difficult to find a top tier dining experience during te pandemic, but 2941 has broken the code. They offered a five course tasting menu and a 3-course prix fixe with offerings from lobster and venison to a vegan risotto. All courses were timed perfectly and the mains (from the duck to the lobster & venison) were over the top. Can't wait to get back.

Excellent dinner outside on the patio under the tent. The food and service were great and we felt socially distant and safe during the entire meal. I would go back and eat outside again.

Had the Chef's tasting menu and wine pairing. Everything was superb, and they were very accommodating in making menu adjustments. The service here is always extremely attentive and genuinely friendly, without being overbearing.

2941 has always been a champion of service. During these times of Covid I was beyond happy to see the setup. I felt safe (this is the first restaurant dining experience I’ve had since March) - clean, masks And gloves on all staff. Oh, and then on top of it all, amazing food and wine!! Best birthday celebration I could possibly hope for in 2020!

Once again, we had an excellent meal at 2941 Restaurant. I have been here three times in the last four weeks. I went to celebrate my birthday for my first post-quarantine dining out experience and was so happy that I have returned twice since, even though it means driving from Maryland for dinner.

The food, as always, is superb. Most importantly, I feel completely safe eating here. I have seen the inside of the kitchen pre-Covid, and the staff, led by Chef Chemel, has always kept the kitchen meticulously clean. Looking at my own kitchen after cooking a meal for just two at home I have no idea how they do it! I have no doubt that their safety measures with regard to food prep are second to none. All of the silverware comes sterilized and wrapped in a package, and I'm the only one who touches it. Each plate arrives covered with a cloche, each diner receives their own butter dish, and the only "shared" thing on the table is the bread basket (and you can stab the bread with a fork if you'd like, but I did not go that far!)

Dining options are either outside or inside, and I have been eager to sit out on the beautiful terrace...however, the restaurant is unique in that with it's 30 foot (?) high ceilings in the main dining room, I would be comfortable eating inside as well.

Service is impeccable, especially given the fact that the distance from the kitchen to the outside dining room is a considerable walk for the wait staff.

And once again, the food is outstanding. For my birthday I had the chef's tasting menu, and I can not express how wonderful it was to have an expertly cooked meal after six months of home cooking and takeout. I enjoyed it so much that I came back for extended restaurant week one week later. Then two nights ago I had their current prix fix menu. Everything. Was. Amazing.

I cannot wait for an excuse to go back.

2941 has adapted to the times very well. Valet parking is out, and the menu is slimmed down considerably. Service by our server was excellent, and the food was wonderful. Chef is featuring foam treatments for a few of his dishes, such as the Caprese salad and a re-imagined cheesecake. There is a reason that 2941 is the destination of choice for special occasions, such as our 53rd wedding anniversary. We'll be back!

Overall the food is excellent. Our waiter was great and knowledgeable. I deducted one star because I added a special note to surprise my guest/client who was celebrating a big event and they missed it and didn't do anything to make her feel special. Missing the detail missed the mark for me this time around.

The appetizers were superb! The mains, the beef duo and the Halibut were, likewise, outstanding. The only (minor) down-check was the lemon tart crust...filling was delectable, but the crust was a bit leaden -- surprising, as 2941's desserts are normally a meal highlight.

We had a lovely 3-course dinner for Restaurant Week. The ambiance was nice with ‘social distancing’. The chef created a very tasty menu with tuna tartar and beef duo. Julio was attentive and Nicki provided excellent sommelier service.
This restaurant has a beautiful setting and is always a worthwhile destination.

Went to Washington Restaurant Week ($55). Of the three courses, the appetizers were the best. Had pecorino stuffed ravioli but it was swimming in margarine and served with corn (and a few sprigs of broccoli) mixed in the margarine sauce. Dessert wasn't memorable; a few dabs of chocolate pudding-like substance and three tiny chocolate cookies, with a dab of sweet-sour sherbet to cut the sweetness. Hubby had the watermelon dessert, which was shredded watermelon and additional very pretty items on the plate. He said he felt it was a waste of watermelon!
Our server, Jennifer, was a VERY gracious hostess who knows her dishes well and did her utmost to ensure our stay was pleasant. We've been to 2941 before and have had very good meals. I find it very overpriced, but with beautiful presentations. Drinks are quite expensive also.

Well-prepared food choosing the 3 courses price-fixe. Great gazpacho appetizer. Filet and short rib combo was delicious. I loved the peach cheesecake dessert. Nice wine choices by the glass. Glad they are planning more such offerings for the fall.

I have been to this restaurant numerous times. The service and food was as exceptional as always. We dined outside, which I have always wanted to do because the grounds are beautiful. Pre-corona, they did not serve dinner outside. So, at least something good has come from the restrictions imposed due to coronavirus. I am hopeful that once these restrictions are lifted, they will continue to serve meals outside. Neither the service nor the quality of the food suffered because of the longer trip from kitchen to table.

We had Chef's Tasting Menu for 4 ladies (outdoor seating) and after 1st course, there was a sudden rain storm and very strong wind....we were quickly moved inside while the staff was trying to secure the tent and keep us safe and dry. We were so impressed with how helpful and professional they were. and of course the food was just amazing and presentation stunning !! I only wish the portions were a bit larger....we were still not full after 5 courses. ....perhaps it was too delicious !
We loved this experience so much, I just made a group reservation for our next event coming up in September.
