In the world of COVID I get that there is not the same staffing as in the far back times- but service was spotty for a restaurant of this level. First drink comes out 1/2 through the appetizer course. Having to flag down people just for water. Felt rushed- but also off paced. BUT the food was wonderful.

Most amazing meal we have ever experienced. Definitely an experience. Did the chef's tasting menu with the wine pairing. The waiter was top notch. Tha sommelier was so warm and knowledgeable. Every course was art! My favorite course besides dessert was the Forestiere. Never knew mushroom foam was a thing..but I am hooked.My husband loved the butter poached lobster.

As always it is a great time at 2941 Restaurant. It was were my girlfriend and I had our first date. This time we came back to celebrate her 30th birthday and the staff was amazing. On the OpenTable app I was able to indicate we were celebrating her birthday. The staff printed the menus with a special birthday theme, she loved it. Then to finish off they brought over an amazing birthday dessert. Thank for help make the night special.

My friend and I were bowled over by how gorgeous 2941 is inside and the lovely view of the lake. The food astounded us as well. We particularly enjoyed the lamb two ways and the Easter chocolate dessert which I photographed and posted on Instagram. The service was also excellent. It’s expensive so definitely a special occasion destination, but well worth it. Thanks so much!

This place always delivers on food! Service has never been bad and Chef Bertrand can do dishes like few in the area can. The new somm is good and can go traditional but if you are adventurous she will do some more adventurous pairings for you. They were doing outdoor seating for spring and its stunning out there.

My family and I love 2941 but I was not aware there was no valet parking. My husband and I have a handicap and would not have been able to park the car ourselves.

Our son, who was joining us arrived and took the car down for us.

Our server was wonderful as were the other support staff. Half of us ordered the lamb chops and unfortunately they were rather fatty and had a lot of gristle. This was an unfortunate surprise.

The desserts were fantastic and beautifully executed...our compliments to your pastry Chef.

OUTSTANDING.

One small piece of advice, please consider using a BOSE SUB-WOOFER to moderate the high pitched "music" that is bouncing off all the hard surfaces in your dining room. Music is supposed to be soothing and should NEVER interfere with understanding normal conversation at the table. The acoustics in your dining room do not achieve this!
Thank you.

The 5 course tasting menu, which changes seasonally, was superb. The beef tartare, the lobster ravioli (not anything like a standard issue lobster ravioli), the cod checks were all excellent and creative. My girlfriend had the cabbage vegetarian main while I chose the ribeye. My was great, but hers continued the creative level that we had been seeing.

We will absolutely be back. Probably next for my birthday.

This should be a Michelin starred restauant. I have never been disappointed with any aspect of the meal. The wait staff is knowlegible about each dish; and they are prepared to perfection. Wine parings are perfect.

I always have a sensational experience at 2941. The food is delicious and caters to a wide variety of tastes. The wine list is excellent and the somm makes great recommendations for pairings. The service is excellent and they don't rush you. Some highlights from my meal include the white asparagus velouté and butternut squash raviolini with maitake mushroom, pecorino pepato, and pistachios.

My wife and I usually dine at 2941 a few times a year and so far this year has been outstanding! We dined on Valentine’s Day and we both loved the tasting menu. So much so that the March Chefs tasting menu included the butter pocked lobster and ravioli dish from Valentine’s Day so we had to return! Jennifer provided us with outstanding service and her description of the dishes made us enjoy the food even more! 2941... please keep the butter poached lobster dish on your menu!!!

2941 continues to be the best restaurant in the DMV area. The food is unequaled by anyone; Chef Chemel is innovative and creative, and always features seasonal ingredients, and NEVER disappoints. The service is again, second to none. If you are a regular diner, they make a point to know your likes & dislikes in an unassuming way. They are completely focused on insuring the total satisfaction of their guests. Their beverages are interesting and fun and the wine list has introduced us to some wonderful wines.

This was one of the best restaurant experiences I have had in the DMV. My wife and I went here for our wedding anniversary and the chef’s tasting menu was exceptional. The staff wore masks, gloves, provided prepackaged silverware, and most of all - gave us wonderful customer service. Our waiter, Julio, was lively, engaging, knowledgeable of the cuisine, made great recommendations and genuinely seemed excited to serve us and other customers. Without hesitation, My wife and I planned to return again soon. Highly, highly recommend this hidden jewel. Bon appetit!

Menu was limited but there were enough choices to find something appealing. Presentation of food was outstanding. Service was excellent. A three course meal for $60 was well worth the price. The music was a little loud at first but seemed to get toned down after we were there awhile.

My husband and I opted for the March tasting menu. The Wagyu Tartare, Butter Poached Lobster, and Chocolate Vol au Vent were excellent.
We also opted for the wine pairing. The sommelier, Nikki, did a spot-on job with those.
The service was not good. We waited 25 minutes between the first and second courses. They dropped off the third course without removing the cloches. After 5 minutes, my husband and I removed those on our own, placing them on the floor, as there was no other place to put them. Courses four and five came out in a timely manner with the cloches removed, but still. At this price point, that type of service is unacceptable.
