Birthday celebration- 3 course price fix meal was great value, and we also ordered oysters (excellent) and a soft crab tempera special (excellent). Cocktails were also fun with a tasty pumpkin mule. The steak main dish was a little tough and too salty for me, and I would avoid ordering it again. Overall good service and atmosphere.

We celebrated our 25th Anniversary dinner. The restaurant was accommodating to a friend who sent flowers for our table, and they surprised us with a special dessert presentation. The service was impeccable, our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. Such a lovely experience.

We put our reservation in months in advance to celebrate our one year anniversary of marriage. It was a very touching that our menus congratulated us on our special occasion. We chose the chef’s tasting menu with wine pairings, which was amazing! The timing of the service was not on pace for the courses. For example, Every other wine glass had streaks of lint and when our courses came out, our server would explain the course to us but we were already finished with the course expecting the next course. Lastly, what truly made the night forgettable was our server brought us a dessert that said happy birthday and the Sommelier continued to wish me a happy birthday. My wife told me to just go with It and not say anything but these mistakes can’t happen at this price point. All of this made the experience very awkward, to go from Happy Anniversary to Happy Birthday in a matter of 45 minutes. I feel sorry the chef because the cuisine was out of this world. The ball was dropped to attention to detail service wise.

2941 is a fine restaurant. We live close by and eat there frequently.
I have only one complaint. The ala-carte menu does not change frequently enough because the kitchen's focus is on the chef's fixed-price menu, which changes more frequently. I am hoping that as the pandemic subsides, the kitchen will change its ala-carte menu more frequently.

We had a very pleasant and relaxing experience. The food was absolutely delicious. Our server was knowledgeable and very polite and helpful; loved his recommendations and pairing suggestions. The restaurant is beautiful and very elegant. I recommend you get there early and walk around the grounds for a beautiful experience if you like the outdoors and water fall and the lake and koi ponds.

Haute cuisine with a slight tip of the hat to comfort food. Equals excitement. Might be just what you've been looking for, and at reasonable prices. Try to dress up a bit to feel in the groove. (Yeah, jeans are always a turn-off.) Can get noisy if crowded (which is often).

Our second time here and we love the ambience, incredible staff, thoughtful sommelier, and inventive menu. A great place that we go once a year as a treat. Not a regular dinner spot, very pricey for smaller portions but PERFECT for an anniversary. They treat you like you are the only ones in the room and I cannot wait to go back for our next special occasion.

Great experience! 25th wedding anniversary dinner. Did the prix-fixe 3-course dinner (good choices for each course). Excellent appetizers followed by very good dinners and ending with tasty desserts (including a special dessert). Great presentation of each course and wait staff could not have been more pleasant/friendly!! Beautiful location.

The tasting menu was delightful. As a couple, we were able to try everything (2 options for each of the five courses). Not dishes we would have usually ordered, each course was a little surprising and a lot delicious. Our server, Julio, was an excellent guide. Only thing I would have done differently would be to have gone a little early to walk around the beautiful ponds first.

We reserved a table for two, and selected the 5 course chef table menu. The server provided information about the wine pairing, and it sounded so great that decided to take this recommendation. So glad we did! The sommelier provided a wonderful experience. She took us to the French Alps and poured us a Domaine Giachino Vin de Savoie Persan 2019 while we enjoyed a course so tastefully described by our server.

I highly recommend the chef table menu and the wine pairing.

Lovely evening. Helpful sommelier. Courses came slowly forcing us to overeat the delicious homemade breads. Birthday noted with signature menu and complimentary dessert. Wine recommended was Purple Hands Pinot Noir which was very good.

3-story ceiling with glass walls give a great view of woods and a lot of air volume if you choose to eat inside. We favor seafood and duck dishes.

My husband and I enjoyed the September tasting menu for the 20th anniversary of our first date. The food was incredible. We had everything from the tasting menu and not one dish was a disappointment. The service was well timed, kind, and attentive. It was a little difficult to hear our waiter because the music was a lil loud and masks, but we leaned in and he spoke louder- so all was well. Highly recommend!

Lovely setting for an early Friday evening dinner. Very attentive service and excellent food. We chose from the a la carte menu, gazpacho, grilled dorado, and duck tournedos with food gras. Perfect . We will be back.

The food are excellent, service also top notch, does anything worth the menu prices, probably not. Wine seems to be very over price for what you getting. However, I think those are norm for the place.
