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.

Finally getting to go out with a couple of friends! It is a lovely venue - the inside tables were socially distanced, the staff all had masks on and we felt very comfortable. The food was fabulous. My friends had the oysters and enjoyed them very much. The butternut squash veloute was very warming and spiced perfectly. The duck was the winner entree of the evening! Really look forward to going back.

Our 18th wedding anniversary, dining out during the pandemic, was as elegant and romantic as one could expect with the proper safety precautions in place. We really appreciated the efforts of the staff to keep the fine dining experience in tact while being mindful of current health concerns. We chose to order from the Chef’s Tasting Menu, so we got to sample a wide range of creative and expertly executed courses, and we thoroughly enjoyed it all. The specialty cocktails before dinner were equally unique and well-balanced. The wines we chose by the glass were excellent. If there was one weak link, it was the desserts. Not bad, but not up to the same standards as everything else. Overall, a wonderful night out, which we hope to repeat again soon.

Fantastic restaurant as always with an incredible menu. We always do the Chef's tasting menu. This time my husband tried the wine pairing and really enjoyed the wines. It was interesting the hear the stories behind the wine as well. The cocktails were crafted well and we always enjoy trying out a few.

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.

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!
