    We go to 2941 to take advantage of each month's chefs tasting menu. Chef Chemel's range and imagination amaze. We have yet to be even mildly disappointed by a single course. Standouts t this month was the unexpected merger of a curry sauce with morsels of squab. and a deeply flavorful risotto. We'll be back for more next month.

    Went for dinner for two. We had foie Gras and duck ravioli for appetizers. We also ordered Caesar salads with anchovies. The foie Gras was not what I am used to. It is not a patent. It has a bit of a alcoholic taste to it. The duck ravioli is ok but not special. Mushrooms in the dish were great. Caesar salad dressing and cheese were great but again not very special. Plating looks beautiful. The best is the entrees. We ordered duck breast and lamb chops. They were delicious and tasty, not too heavy. We enjoyed it. The zero proof drinks were tasty. We ordered 3 drinks the yuzu revenge with pineapple drink is my favorite. The other drink is raspberry, rose syrup, lychee puree with ginger beer is quite tasty, has a good mullish fun kick for a mocktail The lakeside garden Cucumber based drink was pretty fun. It has bergamot smoke-infused bubble or cloud that burst when you drink/touch it with your lips. It smells wonderful. We ordered a chocolate mouse tart with pistachio ice cream was rich and tasty but the tart is too hard. You cannot cut through it. They gave us a free birthday dessert which is a rashberry Panna cotta. This is quite wonderfully tart. They also gave us two free mini cup cake which fail to impress. They shouldn't even offer that because it kinda ruin the other great desserts. The ambience is nice. Bathrooms are a bit outdated and old but the dining experience is nice. Servers are awesome, attentive and friendly. The water feature outdoors is interesting. Looks like there are koi fishes in it. It was dark so you could really see. Parking is easy. It was a 270 dollars meal. I think it is a bit pricey because the we only enjoyed half of what we ate. But for a special occasion, it was a great place to try if you want an upscale ambience.

    There was a very eager and robust crowd on Thanksgiving evening, comprising a few moments of initial concern regarding service; however, everything fell beautifully into place almost immediately. The food, as always, was unique and spectacular and the service provided to our table (by Thomas) was well beyond expectations: we were very pleased and grateful for every aspect of our delightful holiday dinner. Hats way off!

    Definitely an OUTSTANDING Thanksgiving evening dinner! I really think my grandmother would have been jealous! I made last minute reservations which put us at the bar. No problem, we were looking forward to the food! When we arrived, plenty of parking. At check in, the head maitre'd told us they were running a bit behind. Again, no problem. After 20 min or so (and only 10min after reserved time) the maitre'd approached and apologized that they would have to put us in a far section of the room. OK, still no problem. We ordered off the prix fixe menu and had a choice of different appetizers, main course and desserts. It was hard to choose. Although our orders were different, all the food was excellent (seriously best butternut squash soup I've ever had)(sorry grandma!)! The servers were wonderful folks and treated us genuinely nicely rather than stuffy polite. We enjoyed every minute and taste of our meal! Highly recommend!!!

    Service was amazing. Our waiter was excellent. We also got a nice table overlooking the Koi pond. The food was delicious. Only complaint is some of the food was too salty. The duck dressing for example was extremely salty. I recall thinking this on another visit. Seems they could easily reduce the salt level. Otherwise, we really enjoy 2941.

    Simply the best restaurant in the entire DMV. Chef Bertrand is not only supremely talented, but uniquely accommodating -- offering varied and innovative tasting menus that not everyone at a table must order. The service and style are unmatched, and there is arguably no more beautiful natural venue in the area. How MIchelin can continue to overlook 2941 is beyond me (and no, I don't work there :-)

    This was one of only a few non-chain options in the Tyson’s area and it was mediocre. The first dish was so perfumey from bergamot that it was barely edible. The wine paring was the only thing that helped it be palatable, but I was left wishing I had a separate cocktail to drown the flavor. Luckily (?), the second dish overpowered the first course’s aftertaste with it’s own smokey tomato sauce which overpowered the snapper so all I tasted was smokey tomato. The only redeeming thing about the meal was the extra cheese course which was delicious. Everything else was trying too hard to be fine dining and it fell short. Even the dishes were too deep to eat from easily :(

    We both had the 5 course Chef Selection with the wine pairing. Mark, originally from France, provided a wonderful service and was very knowledgeable about the contents and preparation of each serving. 2941 is serious about their wine offerings. We had the opportunity to meet both sommeliers employed at 2941 and they both provided wonderful descriptions of the wine being paired with the course, as well as a bit of history of the region of origin. Just a wonderful evening. Ask for Mark as your server, he will be a great addition to your dining experience.

    Our dinner was for our 1 year anniversary, and 2941 treated us so unbelievably well. The food was outstanding (as usual) and we got a couple of little bonuses in the form of a “Happy Anniversary” raspberry mousse and a personalized printed version of that night’s menu. On top of that our server Julio was funny, knowledgeable and very charming. It was a wonderful night and we’re looking forward to celebrating our future anniversaries there too!
