                      Bread placed on the table early in the meal is absolutely delicious. Be careful not to eat too much, or you will get full after the first course. Seafood, lamb, duck are wonderful choices. Wine selection is broad and accurately priced. Deserts are beautiful, delectable and artistic. Wait staff is pleasant, knowledgeable, accommodating. The atmosphere inside and outside is riveting. A wonderful place for a celebration as well as a comfortable dinner for two.

                      Nice place. Menu was thin and somewhat over priced. Our waiter was cheesy in his mannerisms (in our opinion) . We dine there regularly and will come back but this is the feedback from our most recent visit.

                      We had bar reservations and the hosts were able to accommodate us in the main dining room. The windows really brought the outside in, and despite soaring ceilings (which made everything airy) the room felt intimate. We did the tasting menu with one wine pairing that we split. Each dish was a surprise. And the wine was perfectly matched. The sommelier and our waiter were full of helpful knowledge and had a perfect understanding of when to come to the table and when to hold back. We look forward to returning!

                      Very beautiful location, wonderful staff, nice restaurant. We didn’t particularly enjoy the food/wine pairings as much as we’d hoped for spending a lot of money. We may try it again for the next menu offering, or for a 3 rather than 5 course meal perhaps. I do recommend that you visit this restaurant.

                      I rarely leave reviews so it’s with sadness and a bit of confusion that I’m I rating the service 1 star. It seems that there’s been a big turnover in the waitstaff over the past year and, even though I gave our server plenty of patience (assuming he was brand new), his basic service and hospitality standards were simply just.. bad. Which I still forgave. What was absolutely awful was his knowledge of the menu. My reservation note included that there would be a gluten free diner which we also made clear to him just in case. In regards to options he said “I THINK this is ok” far too often. He would “go ask” and say “no” but return later and say yes. Hopeful that prior to his delivery of desert menus - he’d anticipate more gluten free options - he was once again unprepared. The gluten free person will get very sick for multiple days and we had zero confidence in the information we were receiving. Meanwhile, the back waiters were absent - dry water glasses, cocktail and wine glassware from earlier in our meal left for the duration - even after pushed to the side of the table. I go to 2941 to relax and breath but this was somewhat of a stressful dinner - and a special occasion one as well. The food, however, was perfect - Chef Chemel, over these past almost two decades - has always solidified the reasoning to not go downtown for truly world class technique. I’m also happy about the current flow to recent years ebb on the Wine List. I will return.

                      We celebrated Mother's Day and a Birthday at 2741 in a private, glassed-in dining area. It was just right for us (my wife and I are hard of hearing and use hearing aids or cochlear implants. The open restaurant tends to be fairly noisy on busy days, so the private rooms are much appreciated when they are available. As always, wait staff are welcoming and attentive. Chef Chemel is wonderfully creative with his menus.

                      Mother's Day dinner 2022. Food was good, service was good, 3 course prix fixe menu was VERY overpriced at $100 each, and no a la carte option for the 85 yr old mothers with us who just cannot eat 3 courses. Despite my 2 quiet reminders to staff, the ladies room looked like a truck stop the whole 3 hours we were there, trash cans overflowing, empty toilet paper holders and red gel room deodorizers hooked to the grab bar at eye level in every commode stall (think urinal cake - WTF?). I've been a patron of 2941 for over 20 years. Beautiful, tranquil, sanctuary-esque setting with mature landscape and the enchanting koi pond. When Executive Chef Jon Krinn left in 2007, I still went mostly bc work functions were held there, but the food is always very good too. Then the decor changed dramatically--out with the white tablecloths and in with some really bad art and light fixtures. "Creating a less stuffy and more bistro feel". Whatever, it's ugly and really cheapened the ambiance. Also gone was the dress code apparently. T-shirts and shorts? Sure! Come on in. Make it more casual so more people will come? I don't know the strategy. So we still frequent the bar even tho the happy hour bar menu and truffle popcorn is no more (everything I'm describing here happened PRE COVID). The bartender, Adris (sp?) is great and as long as you stay in that part of the restaurant, you're golden. Since COVID, there is no longer valet parking, and no signs of it returning as it has everywhere else, so confusion abounds as people approach the 15 story office building with poor parking signage. I needed a table for 7 and that was difficult to find for Mother's Day, even 3 weeks in advance. 2941 had availability so I booked a 5pm slot and even guaranteed it with my credit card. I'll never return by choice for dinner there, much less for a special occasion. Sadly, the end of an era.

                      Although we have done pick up a couple of times, this is the first time we've enjoyed dining in at 2941 since before the pandemic. It was, as it has always been, a wonderful experience. We have not found better food or service anywhere in Northern Virginia.

                      Asthmatic and ambience are really nice. Service was okay, but nothing spectacular, it took our waiter 15 minutes to get to our table, which is kind of absurd for this kind of place. Pricey pre fixed menu was the only option and that’s okay, however we were served some appetizers still wrapped in cellophane, Its not really pleasant to find plastic in your mouth, especially at a ‘high end’ place like this. Overall it was an okay experience, but I don’t think that the food and service matched the value. I won’t be in any rush to return, there are far better places in the area.

                      We had not been to 2941 for over two years because of the pandemic. We were very happy to see it remains a terrific place to have a meal. The food was wonderful and the service was excellent.

                      Best restaurant experience I ever had during my seven years in the USA (and I had many). Unique ambiance, excellent service with attention to detail, and very high quality food. Nice wines as well. More expensive than average, but worth every penny, especially for a special occasion.

The food was fantastic and absolutely top tier and the portions were perfect for enjoying an appetizer, main course and dessert that coupled with the restaurants wonderful view 4.8 out of 5 stars.

                      My husband and I had been to 2941 quite a few times before COVID. We were very happy to come back to celebrate our daughter’s birthday and Easter. Being her first time at 2941, I had specifically requested a nice table by the window, and mentioned her birthday. To my surprise we were originally seated at a table all the way in the back, close to the bathrooms ! After showing my disappointment to the Maitre D, we were moved to a better table. Because the waitress was aware of the birthday, I was expecting a little birthday cake with a candle, but nothing special. The food was very mediocre. The coffee lukewarm and weak. Definitely not $90.00 worth per person plus drinks

                      I don’t even know where to start. We went to this restaurant for an Easter experience and it was a fixed three course menu with choices of each course. I chose the wagyu carpaccio, ribeye and peanut butter cake. I must say it was one of the best meals in my whole life. Each dish was prepared to perfection in the smallest details. We had a waiter named Tom who was terrific, precise at his recommendations and with such a good contagious mood. In fact, the whole staff was extremely kind and courteous, made us feel so welcome. Our seating was probably the best in the entire restaurant, gifted by such a wonderful view. If I could rate this restaurant six stars, I surely would with no hesitation!
