    Really nice place. Great ambiance and quiet setting. The food was fantastic. We do not go out often with three kids and work so when we do, we would like a quiet spot with good food and Trummers met the mark.

    Wonderful dinner. Excellent food and drinks. A/C was really cold, until someone must have said something, and the temp became much more comfortable. A little too long of a wait for drinks, but server apologized (only one bartender, he said) and rest of the service was spot on.

    We had a lovely time celebrating our wedding anniversary at Trummers last night. Trummers is one of our all time favorites for its delicious food, attentive and super friendly staff, beautiful and cozy surroundings, and overall welcoming atmosphere. Trummers is a local gem we love to visit regularly, and can't wait to be back soon!

    Everything was delicious, service was impeccable, and the restaurant was beautiful as usual. The only fly/mosquito in the ointment was that we were sitting on the patio and I got several mosquito bites. Nothing the restaurant can be responsible for but perhaps some citronella candles might be helpful.

    Trummers in Clifton, VA is the perfect place to celebrate your special occasion. We were seated at a table for two overlooking the main dining room & had a fabulous anniversary meal of melt-in-your-mouth short ribs & wild caught Scottish salmon, followed by a refreshing sorbet trio & a lovely house treat. Our knowledgeable server recommended a dry Austrian red wine, which paired beautifully with our meal. Well done, Trummers!!

    My fiance and I visited Trummer's for her birthday. We always have a fantastic time! The food is delicious. The service is the best around. Everything about Trummer's seems to be designed to ensure a terrific experience. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. It is more on the pricey end of things, especially if you like cocktails, but the Trummer's experience is very much worth the money.

    Our server was excellent. The area we sat in was very warm due to the full sun and overhead skylight. The drinks from the bar and the food were very slow and arrived out of order. Everything was delicious as usual though.

    Food was OUTSTANDING. Only two issues: (1) the main dining room is freezing. Like really really cold. (2) even though they weren't busy, service was slow. Took us 45 minutes to get apps from the time we sat down. Took 20+ minutes for drinks. With this being said, the place was great and will be back.

    My wife and I visited Trummer's restaurant for the first time for her birthday. The entrance to the restaurant into the bar area was clean and bright. Our hostess wished her a Happy Birthday on arrival and sat us in the room next to the open balcony. It was early in the evening, and the skylights added a natural light to the dining area. The service was impeccable, and the food was excellent. I had the Rockfish and she enjoyed the Short rib. Both dishes were reasonably priced. We have many times eaten at more expensive restaurants that did not provide the same experience. It will be a pleasure to return to Trummer's in the near future. Our thanks to the staff for a memorable evening.
