First rate! The entire staff was well polished, engaging and attentive. The food and drink were exquisite, and the owner took extra steps to ensure we had an exceptional experience.

We elected to sit outside, which was lovely, but the local train did come through twice during our visit. Next time I would sit inside or ask to sit further away from the street.

I believe this was my first time to dine at Trummer's. I gathered some friends together, and had dinner to celebrate my upcoming birthday. The restaurant has a great ambiance (when it's warmer, I'd love to dine outside); our server, Joe, was attentive; the food was good, and the reason why I gave it four stars is because 1.) my side of potatoes came out late and 2.) although a kind gesture of the mini spiced cakes was appreciated, I couldn't eat it due to my food allergy. We had a great conversation and enjoyed our visit!

Our server, Joe was outstanding, attentive and described the content of the menu efficiently. We were celebrating a special event and really had a wonderful experience at Trummers. Will look to return again in the future.

Kudos to the chef for coming up with a vegan option for one of our table members, on short notice. Everything was delicious and the portion sizes were perfect.

A wonderful fine dining experience tucked away in an old small town. Emphasis on fresh, local ingredients and a farm to table ethic. Amazing cocktails as well and a great venue for those who love an eclectic variety of wine by the bottle or glass.

This restaurant exudes class from the personal treatment you receive, the seating, the view, the menu and beverage selection, the knowledge the servers have about the menu and preparation of food, and naturally the food itself. It's a real treat to dine here!

Trummer‘s is a class act. The service and staff are uniformly excellent- attentive and non-intrusive. The food and drinks are fabulous - preparation and presentation are outstanding. Owner Stephan Trummer is personable, informative and gracious - he even makes his own German pretzels!

Excellent experience. We went for an anniversary dinner, and they gave us a little champagne before the meal as well as a little nugget of dessert after. The food I really good and we will go back to try other offerings. Plenty of parking in and around Clifton.

Everything was great. Wonderful staffers who were very knowledgeable and helpful. Great food! Just a bit noisy as there were a number of motorcycles and two trains that went by. But what a terrific place.

Meal was both really good, and just so-so. Tomato Tartine was absolutely delicious, as was the Scallops dish. Korean BBQ Shortribs was just so-so, with shortribs overwhelmed by sauce. Sauteed Greens were really good! I wouldn't order Shortribs again. Kolsch beer was excellent; I would order that again...:-) Server was solicitous and informative, yet service overall was bit slow. As usual, atmosphere and locale are excellent!

Happy Birthday indeed! Spent a lovely evening celebrating a birthday with friends at Trummer's. From the attentive hostesses upon entry, to the special attention paid throughout the meal, the service was excellent! Loved the small menu, made it easy to select one of each of the appetizers and share--all were delicious. So many nice choices for plant forward eaters. The entrees were all wonderful and inventive, and we shared bites all around. Lovely deserts --with the holy trinity of chocolate, fruit and crepe rounded out the meal. Wonderful!

My husband and I went with my parents to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The service was incredibly poor until we finally had the opportunity to talk to our server and complain, about an hour into our “meal” with no food despite ordering quickly. The response was very much of too little, too late, providing extra food when there had previously been none. Having extra food in the end extended a bad experience rather than compensating for a meal that was poorly executed. I canceled several subsequent reservations as this experience is the worst I’ve had in the DC area in years.

This is our go-to spot for a special night out. Last night we had a date night to celebrate a few life events, and it didn’t disappoint. The short rib was to die for, as was the tuna crudo. The service was excellent- our server remembered us from last time even though it had been several months. He gave us great wine and food recommendations and was attentive while giving us sufficient space and alone time as well. We love this place.

I’ve heard mixed reviews for this place but we decided give it a try and I’m glad we did. The restaurant at 7:30 looked packed we we arrived but with reservations had a nice table outside.

The food was great. They have a small menu but do those things well. I would definitely give this place a try if you’re looking for unique flavorful delicious food.

Limited menu leaves you with few choices, which I find a great strategy for a restaurant. Less time for choosing and more time for the chef to achieve perfection in delivery. I enjoyed my 60th birthday and was very satisfied.

Another great meal at Trummers despite the limited menu. In terms of suggestions, I think offering a bread service would be nice other than the focaccia as a paid appetizer, and I think some of the more standard Gruners are a touch overpriced . We love Trummers, though, and are and will remain loyal customers.

Food and service were excellent. We had a wonderful Anniversary dinner of sea scallops and Korean BBQ beef. Both had unique flavors and were cooked perfectly. The servers were friendly and attentive but not pushy. Trummers is our new go-to place for special dinners!
