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.

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.

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 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!

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.
