Excellent- in every way. tasting menu was superb! service was exceptional!
The.Best.Meal. Altho we had a pescatarian in our group of three, we were able to have the Chef’s 5 course meal. He and I also had the wine pairing. Magnificent! I highly recommend it. This was about my tenth visit to Trummer’s and by far the best!
Food was warm, not hot. Cowboy steak was unseasoned.
Trummer's is first choice when out-of-town visitors arrive. And once again, Trummer's delighted these folks visiting for the first time. Actually it also delighted just two of us when we went for a simpler bar dinner a few days earlier. And be sure to check out the Friday special dinner for two, which changes weekly.
We had a difficult time finding an appetizer and a entree. I did check the menu ahead of time and found lamb which we both would eat. It turns out the lamb is from the stomach and fatty. I suggest they work on their menu. The fresh corn bread and hot apple cider were delicious. The service was very good.
I love this restaurant and have dined here many times for different occasions, but this was a first time experience for my date and he was impressed! Always great food and attentive service. The aesthetic is impressive and we intend to return for dinner and cocktails soon. Definitely worth the drive from Alexandria.
My wife and I have eaten at Trummer's dozens of times. Brunch last Sunday was our only disappointing meal. The food was barely warm when it came to the table. Both my wife and I felt a little queasy in the hours following the meal. The service was satisfactory, but there was no drink refreshes or other visits to the table after the meal was served. We really like Trummer's, but it will be a while before we return.
We love coming to Trummers! They get a gold star for hospitality & food (and Titanic cocktails). But good luck finding anything low carb. We really would hate to stop coming here for brunch but it's tough to stick to a healthy lifestyle. I was so filled with bread (and we avoided the bread basket) that I did not eat dinner that night.
First visit but not the last. Menu is pricey (entrees about $40) but superbly prepared, presented, and delicious. Cannot describe or explain our dessert. Many textures and tastes prepared in orange flavors. Unbelievable. Great service including a table visit by the owner. Wonderful experience.
This is a top notch restaurant that anyone would enjoy. The food was well prepared and the service was impeccable. I will return for a very special occasion. Despite the $ signs, make sure you have your pocketbook because it pushes that level.
Try the tasting menu, you can’t go wrong.
Great dinner with friends. Service was definitely lacking and when we made the reservation we weren't told 1/2 of restaurant was booked by private party. My sense is we had the "B" team waiting on our tables in the non-party room. Took over 15 minutes to be approached for drink order once seated. We moved seats as there were several open tables with more ambiance than the one at the kitchen entrance and this seemed like a big issue to them, I couldn't see why as it was plain to see that where they had seated us was less than optimal. My Wellington was terrific once they got them requested temperature done, my wife's Halibut was overcooked but good (a bit on dry side). I dream of the truffle fries and brussel sprouts. Once again, no one took our drink order for dinner so we all drank water. Got my bill and it was wrong, had to send it back. I would go again as the food is terrific and drinks (when you can get them!) are innovative and terrific as well.
This was our first visit to this restaurant. Based on its reputation our expectations were high and It fulfilled those expectations completely: food, ambiance, and service. We will visit it again for dinner and maybe for a brunch, and try those "designer" cocktails which we missed this time.
We had too much service for one. Hardly any quiet time between getting new utensils and having plates removed. The food options are limited. Wanted to rave about this place as we have been meaning to go for years. But we won’t return
I enjoy the chef's selections. The atmosphere is warm and enjoyable. The service is attentive and friendly. This is a more formal location and perfect for a date.
A nice outing for a Sunday afternoon with friends. Not rushed and choices for all types of dietary restrictions.
Amazing from the smiling hostess to the wait staff to the food to the drinks! Loved every bite of food. Service was impeccable. They know how to read a table! Lots of options for everyone in the group —vegetarian, fish lover, meat eaters. Everyone loved their food. Will definitely be back soon!
Waitress was helpful but hovered, like she wanted to turn the table as quickly as possible. Owner is fabulous!
Food tastes good but one in our party was served cold food.
AMAZING food, great service! Absolutely worth the splurge for a special occasion!
The entire evening was incredible from the food to the atmosphere to the service. First rate. An experience worth repeating!
Such a hidden treat, Trummers on Main Street in Clifton comes through again and again.
Second time at Trummers and both times were amazing. The service is impeccable and the food amazing! Wine and sommelier are best in the industry!
It was our first time dining at Trummers. We did the Sunday family style supper. Most of the food was ok. We chose the crab/cod option over the beef. We made the wrong choice. Every bite of the crab/cod had several bones and/or scales. The risotto had a very nice taste. The house made salad dressing was actually the tastiest part of the meal. I will visit again, but only on nights when I can order off the menu. The place had a very nice ambiance and the service was really great. The scales and bones made it a so-so experience for what I paid.
Brunch was delicious and the service was friendly and efficient. The beignets were worthy of a New Orleans cafe. Both of our brunch entrees were perfectly cooked and tasty. We’ll for sure return.
Took friends for their first time, they loved the service, attention and the food was incredible! Will be going back soon!
The ambience and service was great. Loved the atmosphere and the food was really good!
We went to Trummer's for Valentine's Day, after a recommendation from a work colleague. The food was magnificent. We opted for the prix fixe menu, which gave each of us four choices for each course. We added a plate of raw oysters (with homemade corn bread) to share. My uni/lobster parfait (served in an uni shell) literally melted in my mouth. My wife's arctic char tartar -- with sauces poured into a ring of tartar at the table -- was equally delicious. The main courses of pappardelle (hers) had alternating tastes of citrus and a cheese sauce from bite-to-bite, which made a nice contrast. My halibut was very light (I wish there had been more, when compared to the ample portion of pappardelle). For dessert, my strawberry & elderflower was served with cute meringue drops (I'd thought they were white chocolate before I dove in), and was a perfect blend of dessert and palate cleanser at the end of the meal. My wife's cheese and quince plate was a bit heavier than my desert, but there wasn't much left at the end.
We'll be back!
Misc other points:
- The wine list is a bit pricey, but don't be afraid of the house varieties which are quite good and less expensive. It's Trummer's own label.
- It is much quieter on the second floor (where we were) than on the first. The bar area (also on the first floor) looked quite lively, with an upscale crowd.
- It wasn't that busy, so the lengthy delay in getting our cocktail seemed very odd. We finally told them to forget about it after we'd finished the oysters, and went for the wine. The staff and manager were very polite about it, but getting the time to get the drink was quite interminable.
Loved it as always. Great place for special celebrations. Highly recommended.
Whether for a special occasion, as this date was for Valentine's Day, or any other occasion, Trummer's can be counted on for excellence. It's our favorite.
This is one of the best restaurants around -- I'm including DC restaurants. The chef is fantastic. It is in the most adorable town of Clifton. I have celebrated so many special occasions here including an upcoming wedding celebration in the private dining room. The menu changes seasonally. When these people say seasonal -- they mean it. What about a pumpkin coming out with a flame to do smores for a dessert for a fall seasonal dessert!
We’ve been here about 10 times and always enjoy it! We took advantage of the valentine menu, which was perfect for us.
We enjoyed a lovely valentines lunch at Trummer’s . The food was excellent and the service was outstanding . Our server gave us knowledgeable advice on our menu options and guided us to outstanding choices . Thank you Trummer’s for 1 3/4 hours of peace and yummy food . We will come again.
We love this restaurant, our local favorite. Our only complaint was that we were seated close to a window on a very cold night, and were a bit uncomfortable. Staff moved our table away from the window which helpful tremendously. Another great meal at Trummer's!
Always perfect...from the drink at the bar while we waited, delicious food and impeccable service. One of our favorite dinner spots.
Wonderful as always!
Birthday for 6 year old granddaughter. The staff made her feel extra special. Our waiter, which is who we usually have did another great job of giving us a wonderful dining experience.
We enjoyed a lovely evening with friendly and knowledgeable, but not overly intrusive staff.
The food was exquisite and pleased all six of us at the table. We would all definitely return to dine there.
Trummer’s has always been high rated for us. This time it exceeded our previous visits. The food and service were beyond expectations.
This was my first visit to Trummer's on Main and it exceeded my expectations!
Was recommended by a friend. Food and service were very good. It took a while for the food to arrive but was worth the wait.
