    We were seated outside, as requested. It was a bit cool, but they ha e great outdoor heaters. We were also the only ones opting to sit outside, so that was great for an anniversary dinner. We were far from forgotten. We received above and beyond service and several special perks from our wait staff in honor of the anniversary. It was a great night out with food that was off the charts, as expected. Thank you Trummer’s staff and Chef!

    Food was good, service was slow and couple time during our visit the service was non responsive. We had to ask about the appetizer after 20 minutes in and luckily we didn’t order our entrees. Waiter had no advice on the entrees only suggested the popular items as it appeared the wait staff never was able to sample the entrees. Anyway food was good. We had Halibut weinersnitzel. Deserts were good. No plans to go back in the near future.

    Trummer's just keeps getting better and better. Case in point: Having enjoyed their rockfish a couple of times over the summer, I tried the branzino last night. And it was even better -- perfectly prepared, full of flavor, better than any branzino I've had regularly in various DMV restaurants. Everything else was great, too...but, man, that branzino!

    Food was OK, but limited in terms of options and somewhat pricey. Actual menu did not agree with the website version. Good happy hour with house special drinks -- good value there. Service was very good. Nice spacious dining room and outside eating area. Bar was busy at happy hour.

    I took a friend to celebrate her retirement and this was the perfect place for a special lunch. The dining room provided a beautiful setting and the waiter was extremely helpful. Plus, everything we ordered was wonderful. I highly recommend Trummer's Restaurant. It did not disappoint!

    We were very excited to have another lunch spot in the area. We each ordered salads that were very small. Two of us added salmon to the salad, the salmon was delicious. The chopped salad was supposed to come with crumbled smoked blue cheese. They left if off, by the time I got the server’s attention to get it my salad was half gone. There was only romaine lettuce in the salad, no variety. Need to step the game if they want to compare to GAR and Villagio across the street. Restaurant is beautiful by the upholstery on the chair I sat on was very stained.

    We celebrated our 25th anniversary there. It was a wonderful experience in all respects. The food was delicious (tip: try the tableside s'mores - they are to die for), the cocktail we had was unique in both taste and presentation. Everybody that we interacted with was knowledgeable and professional and all of them offered congratulations. We will definitely be going back.

    The meal was among the best I have ever had. The specialty drink is very good, but over-priced for the volume. Double the size of the glass and you will have something. Friendly service and welcoming atmosphere.

    Stick with drinks and small plates. Food was less than warm. Ambience and service excellent. The tomahawk steak had great flavor but did not come out hot. Prime rib was the Friday feature and they did not have it available to order by 7pm. Bottom line go for drinks and appetizers small plates or things you expect to be cold.

    We celebrated our 10th anniversary here and it was phenomenal. The food was amazing, even the salad (loved the dressing). I had the halibut and my husband had pancetta for our mains. The s’mores dessert experience was so fun. Brittany was a fabulous server and recommended wonderful wine pairings. Exceeded our expectations.

    Nice ambiance and the waiters were trying their best, but the food was a major disappointment. I’ve ordered in house made burrata, it was dry, very salty and garnished with veggies covered in hot red pepper. Looked like the chef was overusing spices to compensate for the lack of taste. I had rockfish for the main course and it was tasteless and overcooked. My friend had tuna tartare garnished with deep fried potato chips and soup. She didn’t like neither. As a result we paid $100 plus tips and it was so not worth it.

    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.

    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.
