We have eaten here frequently over the years and especially enjoyed our anniversary dinner last night. Sommelier helped us pick a great California Pinot noir. Really enjoyed.

Delicious food, both on the tasting menu and a la carte, and a great selection of wines both by the glass and by the bottle. Timing of courses was perfect, and the service was excellent. They even arranged for a special dessert for my dad (it was his birthday). Can’t imagine how it could have been any better.

Saw a middle eastern server drop a placemat on the dirty carpet (which they probably haven’t replaced in years) and then he placed the same dirty contaminated placemat on the table, continued to lay the silverware directly on top of the germy placemat. YUCK! Unsanitary! Saw a couple being seated at the table and almost went to tell them.
On another note, my son ordered the pricey $60 Prime Rib (Rare) and what he got was an overcooked dry hard filet mignon. Filet mignon and Prime Rib are completely different cuts of meat! Got cheated. If the restaurant did not have Prime Rib and mentioned it would be substituted with Filet Mignon, that would have been understandable but they failed to do so. Having second thoughts about this place to eat there again....not a good vibe.

I was quite pleased with the service and food quality. The food is always of high quality and inventive. The service for 2941 has been inconsistent over the years so I was excited for them to bring back high quality service!

The 3 course prix fixe is an excellent choice because it is substantial in terms of price and portioning. The service by Mike was excellent and made our anniversary special. The food is exquisite. Highly recommend this place.

The food and the cocktails were uniformly delicious, across all four of us (a lot of sharing). This was a Tuesday night, but the dining room was almost full, and the wait staff were very busy, so service started slowly but got much better by 8:15, as a lot of the early diners left. Noise level was very high at first for older ears, especially for hearing the staff through their masks, but that also got much better as early diners left and the noise level dropped. It was a beautiful night, and we enjoyed the open airiness of the dining room, walking outside, watching the koi in the pond, and looking at the lake. As this was our first night out to eat in a restaurant since the start of the pandemic, really the evening could not have been bettered, so the experience was well worth the price. Started at four stars but ended on a high five. A meal and an evening to remember.

It was another great night at 2941. This time we sat at the bar and had the full tasting menu and great drinks. Hubby's Kentucky bourbon drink sat for far too long before they served it to us. Almost as soon as one bartender served it, the other one swept in to say they would be giving us another drink because the first drink may have been watered down. I appreciate the excellent service. Always,

A family gathering of eight to celebrate several milestones. Six of us had the tasting menu and two ordered à la carte. Everything was wonderful: scallops ceviché, risotto, zucchini blossoms, rib eye steak received exceptional accolades. Service was very good even though two wedding receptions were also being held in private rooms.

Compared to other fine dining restaurants, we found 2941 to be, somehow, more industrial, less intimate. Ceilings are too high; lighting is too bright. Food was interesting, but not as delicious.

Very fast service which caused us to spend $200 on a meal for two in an hour. I hadn’t finished my cocktail before my dinner arrived. I would have preferred wine with dinner. Slow down and let us enjoy your restaurant!

Worth it for a date night with my wife. Close to the house. Secluded spot. Requiring a card on file prior to the date eliminates any poor people from Southern Maryland from attending and ruining the environment.

Maybe it was a one-off, but based off last night’s experience at 2941, it’s not what it used to be. We had one fantastic course with a sauce that would be expected from the restaurant. The rest was “meh” at best. My entree was so acidic that I opted to pass on it. My husband and I both agreed that if we hadn’t visited before and know what we think it’s capable of, we wouldn’t visit again. Disappointing.

Place was very nice but too loud for a quiet conversation. It was hard to hear the music with the 2 groups at the other side in the bars. Table had glass on the floor and left over wrappers from previous customer. Server picked it up once notified. Server was excellent and very professional. Knew the menu very well. Tuna tartare was ok. I wish it didn’t look like a hamburger patty. For someone that does not like raw meat, the presentation was not good. It should look different. Tuna was very good and fresh. The salad appetizer was also good and well plated. Husband had rib eye platter and it was cooked perfectly. I had the tortellini and it was also very good and plated nicely. Desserts were delicious! We had an anniversary treat from the chef of chocolate mousse and strawberry sauce. Excellent! I had strawberry rhubarb dessert and the different tastes on the plate were fantastic. My husband ordered the honey bee dessert. This was the least favorite of the three. It was just ok. I had 2 cocktails and my favorite was the mule. Cappuccino was also very good.
