Description: 2941 Is one of the most celebrated restaurants in the metropolitan area. The restaurant is nestled in the heart of Falls Church, VA surrounded by lush landscaping, koi ponds, waterfalls, world-class artwork, and a lakeside view. Following its transition from a special occasion fine dining venue to a bustling upscale casual dining experience in 2012, award-winning Executive Chef Bertrand Chemel and Pastry Chef Caitlin Dysart infuse sweet and savory perfection into their contemporary American cuisine accented with bold French and Mediterranean flavors. Named by Washingtonian Magazine in 2014 as a 100 Very Best Restaurant, Northern Virginia Magazine in 2013 as one of the Top 50 Best Restaurants, and by Eater DC as a 38 Essential Washington Restaurant, to name a few accolades, 2941 continues to charm gourmands with its sophisticated yet relaxed ambiance, outstanding service, and inventive cuisine.

“Beautiful setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great food in a classy hip and modern restaurant . Great views from just about every table . The food is tasty and looks magnificent - only drawbacks too little food - while the food looks and tastes fabulous there should be more of it

“delicious food in beautiful setting with knowledgeable, warm service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

we have been here a few times for special occasions. we always enjoy the creative (but not too foo-foo creative) menu, the enthusiastic service, the sommelier, and we get in a good mood looking out on the water and greenery through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

“Fantastic Fun for Office Parties”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Our company has held 2 winter holiday parties at this restaurant in 2012 and 2013. Parking is ample, convenient, close and covered. A coat rack was provided right outside the Waterfall room so we did not have to hold them or hang them over chairs. We were treated to a wonderful selection of delicious hors d’oeuvres, wines and spirits while we mingled and shared the company of co-workers. I thoroughly enjoyed the venue.

“Thanksgiving Day without turkey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Enjoyed a fixed-price menu on Thanksgiving and chose sea bass. Perfectly prepared, and all dishes were great. Lovely service and ambiance on a very cold day. Wine sommelier very knowledgeable and enticed us to try an unfamilar white wine which was perfect with the meal. Nice that we can walk to 2941 and enjoy the setting on the lake. Overall great food, but the prices keep us from going often.

“Very special place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Not only is the food delicious, the view is peaceful, and the waitstaff attentive without being in your face. Although the restaurant became less "stuffy" a few years ago, the food is still fine dining at its best. It is a wonderful place for a celebration.
Don't overlook their happy hour in the late afternoon/early evening. The happy hour wines are always excellent and the food options inventive and tasty, you can admire the view at the gorgeous alabaster bar.
