We had not been to 2941 in about three years. We missed the valet parking. The koi were bigger in the pond. The dining room had been renovated to give more privacy. The private party at the bar was a bit noisy. My Caesar salad had been deconstructed. It was tasty but hard to eat. The dressing was a little heavy. The pastrami beets were exciting. The flavor combinations exploded on the palate. Our calamari were perfectly cooked. I had the linguine Nero with seafood. The pasta had that special taste from the squid ink. The clams and lobster were perfectly cooked. The sauce, with a touch of saffron, was exceptional. After I finished the dish, my spoon found its way to the bottom for a last taste. My spouse had a combination of duck breast and liver which she thoroughly enjoyed The Honore’ for desert was a nice ending.

Very disappointed with the Thanksgiving dinner. Expected a more formal typical Thanksgiving dinner with Turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry served separately rather than mixed up as one dish. Worst Thanksgiving dinner we have ever eaten. Way overpriced for the food served.

They were really busy on Thanksgiving so we might not have had the server’s total attention as is the usual there but it was still good personable service. The menu choices were all so interesting that it was difficult to pick .. there were 4 of us, for apps we had Caesar salad, salmon crude and mushroom tart. Everyone loved their choices. For mains, 2 of us had lobster turkey combination with parsnips and spinach. We were swooning! My husband’s beef was so good and tender it made my eyes roll! Friend who had the turkey dinner declared it amazing. Dessert was chocolate pecan tart for each of 3 of us - huge, can’t wait to eat my leftovers! The friend who ordered apple tart tatin liked it. I am so sick of tasting menus with weird combinations of ingredients that I don’t know. With this meal, I knew what I was eating and really could taste the ingredients, creative but not over the top, Can’t wait to go back!

Four of us enjoyed a perfect Thanksgiving lunch at 2941. The food is beautifully presented and the service is excellent. The special menu was a perfect blend of traditional food with a modern twist and absolutely delicious. We love 2941's gorgeous venue with awesome views of the small lake. It's definitely a "special occasion" restaurant which we highly recommend.

My review is actually about OpenTable. OpenTable seems to discriminate against single diners. Very difficult to reserve table for one. You always steer me to bar seating. Not Fair. Please change your policies.

Five course tasting menu paring w wine at 2941 tonight.

I am sure I will not ever go back to 2941. The restaurant where my BFF hosted and paid for my 50th BD party of 20 people. Now, Food is too salting for the price. $180/pp - Just salt? Please!

We did the chef’s tasting menu (plus wine pairing) and were really blown away. We thoroughly enjoyed the selections and will definitely be back. They even made it extra special and brought out a beautiful dessert to celebrate our anniversary! Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a unique experience.

Anniversary dinner. Chef Tasting Menu - Food was tasty and unique but way over priced for portion size. You’re definitely just getting a taste of each course. Waiter was attentive and good but brought courses too quickly and then disappeared as soon as last course served. Overall was memorable but not worth the money in my opinion. Maybe we’ll try a la carte next time.

2941 easily lived up to its standards. Every staff member, from the maitre'd to the sommeliers to the bussers to Jean-Marc, our server, was fantastic. They were cordial, welcoming, and very knowledgable. The food was terrific. Each course delivered a great portion that was impeccably prepared. My wife and I did a tasting, and we chose both options so that we could sample it all. The only thing I wish we'd done differently was to both select the lamb for the entree, as the vegetarian option was a crispy polenta (which was fantastic), but the lamb included a side of the crispy polenta, so we'd both have gotten that anyway. So if you're trying to try everything like we were, that's my only recommendation! Aside from that, get a reservation and enjoy this restaurant. It's fantastic.

Other than being unable to access the parking lot correctly ( impossible to see a lone sign in the dark), we enjoyed the evening. The menu (both tasting and ala carte) was a bit eclectic, but we found dishes that we liked. At first we thought the venue was a bit loud and soulless, but the servers were warm and informative and we quickly changed our feelings.

The tasting menu with wine pairings is interesting but all portion sizes are tiny and the wine may be rare vintages but I for one would have been just as happy with domestic ones. Then they may not have been as stingy with the pour.
