The atmosphere was just right, open and spacious. The professional staff is a delight and the alcoholic drinks are superb. The food is beautifully crafted, each bite retains its savory taste, and the presentation of the food is what you expect at a fine dining establishment. Worthwhile.

The service was, as usual, exceptional. The tasting menu along with wine parings was delectable. We alway look forward to what chef prepares, and the wine that is paired. This is on of our favorite restaurants to enjoy a date night.

The food and service was impeccable from our waitress who was very knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive along with the sommelier who did a great job pairing our plates with the proper wine. Highly recommend for a special date night with your special somebody.

FYI, Don’t expect massive portions, as this is meant to be smaller plates with multiple courses but DO expect a flavor concerto to play in your mouth after your first bite.

This is probably the best experience that can be had in this COVID era but I thought some of the what I'll call "sanitation theater" was unnecessary. Do we really need domes over the food so that nothing happens between the kitchen and our table? That seems far-fetched. Same with wrapping the silverware individually. Anyone familiar with the science knows that these are not the transmission vectors to worry about.

Finally, those weird under-plates were very inconvenience because the plates on top of them slide around when you're trying to cut something like, say, a ribeye.

Still one of the best restaurants in the area, though. Had a great time.

Exceptional. We did the 5-course tasting menu, which is a real value. We brought our own bottle of wine and paid corkage instead of doing the wine pairings for the first 4 courses.

I wish I could have tucked into a huge bowl of the Wagyu Tartare with a couple more of those delicate potato chips. OMG. Between the forestiere and the lobster with raviolini, both excellent, but I have to say that the tiny taste of the raviolini that my husband gave me was not enough. I wanted more. The big surprise was how delicious and perfectly spiced the ancho chili pepper in mole was. And the rib eye was cooked PERFECTLY (I won't eat it if it's even a skosh over medium rare. As for the dessert, we all had the Vol au Vent. I've never seen halva on a menu at a fine dining restaurant. We need more of that. I understand the wine pairing they suggest with that, but I asked for a sauterne. Goes with everything, right?

The overall atmosphere at 2941 is also exceptional, and the restaurant is set up perfectly for COVID protocols. Some day, I want to get a table by the fireplace. The service is impeccable, the wait staff is knowledgeable., friendly and there just enough. 2941 is one of our top 3 restaurants in this area, and we will keep going back.

We came here for dinner with friends for a Saturday evening. I ordered the tasting menu and every course was amazing. Everything was great. I loved the coco and chocolate dessert.


Note for first time visitors: the attendant wasn’t available on the phone number so had to walk around to find how to get in the restaurant. No bueno. There should be a better system for getting access from the parking garage.

The food was outstanding as we did the chefs tasting menu with wine pairing. Our sommelier was incredible. She went out of her way to ensure we had our favorite wines during the main course.
We loved it! We’ll be back soon.

A great evening. The only “hiccup” is upon arrival, we had read valet parking. We pulled up expecting and waiting for the valet and no one came to take the car. The staff was inside and could clearly see we were waiting. There was no communication via sign or staff to tell us to self park. Just an awkward beginning to a lovely evening. The Sommelier Nikki Drake was a wonderful additional to the evening.

Always a special place for dinner. Food was wonderful. Service was a bit casual and the description of each course was not timed to its presentation on our plate.
All in all, a very enjoyable evening.

2941 was all that we expected it to be for our Valentine’s Day dinner. Everything was delicious, we evidently on the 6 course tasting menu with wine pairing and could not believe the flavorable dishes we were served as well as the impeccable service. The staff were outstanding and wore all the required protective gear to ensure ours as well as their safety. I don’t know which fish I loved the most, maybe it was the lobster with ravioli in butternut squash purée, or the truffle mashed potatoes or maybe the red velvet cake. I don’t know. I only know I can’t wait to return!

We dined at 2941 for our Valentine's Day dinner and selected the special 4-course tasting menu. Everything was excellent from start to finish, including the service from our waitress. First time dining at 2941 and will not be the last. Perfect place to enjoy quality food in a special setting.

It had been over a decade plus since my wife and me last dined at 2941. Our server Julio was a fastastic watier and guided us through our four course selection and assisted with our wine selection. The four course Valentine's Day meal was phenominal. I will not wait another ten years to eat at 2941!

We had a lovely 4 course tasting menu for Valentine’s Day. However the bar seating area lacked ambiance, was too brightly lit and we could not hear the music that was plying in the restaurant. If I go back I would definitely insist on sitting in the main dining room.

It was a wonderful dining experience. It’s was my wife and my’s 20th anniversary and the meal and experience did not disappoint. Service and food were both excellent. We had the chef’s tasting menu which included 5 courses and you could select from 2-3 options for each course which is nice for people that are not very adventurous like my wife. Loved the detailed descriptions by the Sommelier of the wines that were paired with each course. The restaurant even customized our menus to say happy anniversary. In all it was a very special meal. If I had more time I’d note more details about the food everything I’d write would be positive all of it was delicious.

Only negative thing which has nothing to do with the meal was the parking. The nearby ground level lot was full so I needed to park in the garage that was around the back and rather that walk through the building under cover in the cold I needed to walk all the way strong the building along the roads a 5-10 minute walk. Sounds like it was an issue related to new building management hopefully they straighten it out.

A wonderful restaurant hidden in the "basement" of office building. If you come here during weekend and park your car at the garage, note that you may have to walk to the front lobby in order to get in as the door is locked during off business hour. The food is fantastic. The service is prompted and friendly. The food, oh the food, is heavenly. Highly recommend.
