This place is awesome -- has been that way for many years. Cannot go wrong here, but it might spoil you against regular food after you eat here too much. Top notch food and gracious service makes it worth going to the out of the way location -- which also has nice grounds with koi ponds, fountains, and a lake for geese etc

Good food for restaurant week, but limited menu. The seats by the window are a bit drafty. Overall pretty good experience, I'd try it again at some point.

This place is wild. One of the stranger restaurant designs we've ever experienced, but the food never disappoints. One of the most unique and artistically stunning culinary experiences in Northern Virginia, but if you're living on a budget like us, we highly recommend waiting for a Restaurant Week to roll around.

I have never been disappointed by 2941 until Thursday. Maybe it was because of the limited menu, or because of the lacking service. I felt I had to beg someone to take our order. I didn’t realize it was Restaurant Week. Maybe it was because of that. The price fit the courses we were served. I was expecting the usual 2941.

Dining was during D.C. Restaurant Week, so the menu was limited to a choice of one each of 3 or 4 appetizers, 4 entrees, 3 desserts. When we'd made the reservation a few weeks prior I wasn't sure if the restaurant was participating in the program for dinner. The food was good, perfectly cooked, lovely presentation, but some of the entrees were a little on the small side; dessert was definitely small. At first the hostess didn't want to seat us ("it's restaurant week") because we were waiting for another couple to join us but after she checked with the manager we were seated - a definite plus since the bar was full and there was no way to get a drink there.

This excellent restaurant has been among our favorites for over 10 years. It remains in that top group, even during Restaurant Week, when compromise might easily be in place. Our openers (beet and goat cheese salad, butternut squash soup), entrees (seafood risotto and duo of beef), as well as our dessert choices were delicious and beautifully plated and presented. Really nice wine list continues.
Thank you 2041 for remaining the wonderful restaurant you are and for the continual renewal and update you provide with regard to menu and seasonal selections. The setting with the coi pond and the lake overlook is always a beautiful addition.

The service was great. We were there during restaurant week, therefore the menu options were limited. The food was good, but I expected outstanding.

Although the ambiance and noise level raised the score to 4 stars, the attention to detail coming out of the kitchen was less than expected. There was something crunchy in my risotto and one of my shrimp came out with some shell.

The taste of the food was good. The service was ok. We’d go back to restaurant week next year to give them another chance before writing them off completely.

Went during Restaurant Week to celebrate my husband's 60th. RW menu was very nice. Hard to choose! I had the Salmon Tartare, Sea bass and Chocolate Crunch (? not sure exact name) . The salmon tartare was delicious and beautifully prepared. Sea bass was delicious, nicely prepared as well, but the accompanying base of a white bean in sauce was unimpressive. Nothing green on the plate, just fish on beans. Dessert was tasty, crunchy exterior with a mousse-like filling. RW cocktail list was all intriguing. I had a drink with lavender infused Lillet and some Cava. Very nice. Service was attentive without being intrusive for our party of 6, right up until we needed the check. Took a moment to get someone's attention. Overall, a nice night out on the town, and as our server pointed out, they are offering the RW menu for 2 weeks, so perhaps an opportunity to go back and try another dish or two!

I’ve heard about this place for years and I was so excited to go. But it turned out to be just okay. We went for restaurant week. The soup and dessert were good, the beef, just okay. We never learned the waiters name. They brought out his main course even though he clearly wasn’t at the table, so it sat there to get cold.

I’m good. I don’t need to come here again.

The service, especially at the bar, was excellent. We had to wait a little bit before our table was ready but we’re not rushed to leave. The food and drinks were delicious and it was so relaxing to sit and linger over our cappuccinos. Many thanks!

I had the unusual circumstance of coming down with a cold shortly before my first reservation for restaurant week this week (I am going three times this week to try different things on the menu). I pondered canceling but decided to go so as to not disappoint my family. I decided if I could not “taste” much (so sad!!!), I would focus 100% of appreciation of presentation (plating, color, etc.) and texture (creamy, crunchy, etc.). In truth, I had the most fantastic meal!!!! It was amazing to me how wonderful the meal was in those regards. I have always appreciated this restaurant for ALL aspects of the meal, but being forced by my “stuffy nose” to exclusively focus on texture was a real intense and fun experience for me.

Beautiful dining room, with high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling widows, in a park-like setting. Service was friendly and attentive,dishes arrived without undue delay. Quality of food was very good, not outstanding: scallops, venison and duck were excellent, other entrees (we were 6) were good, and appetizers were good but not notable. Conversation was easy, and dining room was spacious.

The lower score on service was due to the lobster veloute which had started to congeal when served..
The Rocher dessert was a huge disappointment and did not resemble any of the online photos; it seemed like the kitchen ran out of sauce or perhaps it was served before plating was completed. Dover sole was underwhelming ..

The food was delicious. All the meals were well thought through and tasted amazing. But you can get equally great food in other DC area restaurants without paying as much money. On top of that the service was very slow. At first it was nice to not feel rushed, but we eventually started to wonder if we were ever going to get out of there. Finally, when we picked up our car the valets had left it smelling strongly of cigarette smoke. This is completely unacceptable and why we may never go back.

We visited 2941 for our New Year Eve dinner as a date night as well. They offered a fix priced three-course menu for the New Year celebration, but each course has multiple selections to satisfy any dietary preference. The food is incredible appealing to look, sense and taste. The chef's creativity came thru successfully and the dessert is wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and the food tremendously.

2941 Restaurant is ALWAYS excellent. The food is outstanding, the service is impeccable, and the ambiance is luxurious. I highly recommend the tasting menu. It changes season to season, and it's always surprising to see what amazing tastes Chef Chemel creates. 2941 is an absolute gem of a restaurant.
