Facilities and Capacity
This venue has space for up to 200 guests on a couple’s wedding day. A tall building of white and glass is surrounded by nature, making up the outer appearance of this venue. Couples can use the conveniently paved patio spaces outside for their ceremony, cocktail hour, or reception. In one location, couples can exchange vows with a beautiful wooded backdrop of mature trees dressed in green leaves with warm brown trunks. In the other ceremony spot, couples can marry in front of a dynamic water feature and the magnificently modern building. The waterfalls in this venue’s gardens range from a low trickle to a tall multi-tiered installment.

2941 gave us our dream wedding. From the start their director of special events (Michelle) is extremely helpful. She answered our emails in timely manner, she was able to accommodate our requests. The landscaping of the restaurant is breath taking, it's a hidden gem in the busy streets of Northern VA. The food is wonderful. Me and my husband enjoyed the food tasting, they provided us with such a wonderful and stress free experience. Also, the staff is extremely professional and friendly. They will go above and beyond to make sure they meet everyone's needs.
If you are looking for a ceremony venue and reception venue that can provide beautiful ambiance, delicious food and wonderful staff, I will highly recommend 2941!

We were absolutely thrilled with our wedding at 2941! It was everything we hoped it would be and more. Michelle Marquez was simply wonderful to work with. She is warm, accommodating, and a consummate experienced professional who does everything possible to ensure that your wedding wishes come true. As for the venue, one look at Restaurant 2941 and we knew nothing could compare. The photos are accurate. If you can't envision it based on photos alone, then take the time to view it in person. You'll love the landscaping, the artful and contemporary interior, the soaring ceiling, incredible views, and diversity of spaces available. Add to all this amazing, pinterest-worthy food. My guests, including some very picky relatives, told me over and over that it was the best meal they'd ever had at a wedding. Of course, we already knew the food would be great, as we'd had the opportunity to sample almost everything on the menu during the uniquely formatted tasting hosted by 2941. Finally, the wait staff at Restaurant 2941 is superb. We'd seen them in action during the tasting and were confident in not only the kitchen's ability to turn out 130 perfectly cooked meals simultaneously but also in the wait staff's ability to quickly serve them to our guests. Finally, while we spent more than was probably necessary (because we wanted the top-premium bar and an extraordinarily food-heavy cocktail hour), I believe that 2941 gives you good value for your money and is priced well. I have no doubt that we will be back at 2941 in the future, to enjoy the fabulous atmosphere, savor the food, and reminisce about every second of our wonderful wedding. I cannot recommend Restaurant 2941 highly enough!!

2941 has been a go-to restaurant for special occasions or just an intimate dinner with excellent food. When my fiancé and I were trying to determine our wedding venue, 2941 came to mind immediately. In fact, we did not look at any other venues and we were not disappointed. This is one of the most beautiful locations in all of Northern VA for a wedding. it is tucked away with a beautiful terrace overlooking a lake with artistic pieces all around. They also have a water fall terrace which makes for stunning photographs. The Event Director, Michelle Marquez, was amazing throughout the entire process. She met with us multiple times and was very responsive to our many emails and calls. She gave sound advice when we were uncertain and just made us feel completely comfortable that our event was in good hands. On the day of the wedding, the 2941 team was very attentive, professional and courteous to all of our guests. The Manager on Duty that day, Sam, constantly checked in with us to ensure all was going smoothly and all of our needs were met. The Chef's menu offerings were outstanding. The food was elegantly presented, from the hors d'oeuvres to the seated meal, but most importantly, extremely delicious! The cake was a piece of art and was actually delicious as well! We heard from many of our guests that this was the best food and wedding cake they have ever had at a wedding! 2941 made our wedding day one to remember for decades to come! We highly recommend them!

I have worked in several occasions with Michelle Marquez and her wedding team at 2941. Michelle's advice is always on point. She strives to provide with an incredible customer experience for her couples. All of my clients have always been very pleased with 2941's service and food. This is a great venue for intimate receptions or bigger affairs up to 200 guests. I love going back to 2941 even as a private dinner! Their atmosphere of the venue is very elegant and modern, and yet full of nature around! Their gardens are serene and very calming. Do not hesitate to have a wedding or important life celebration here.
This is a gorgeous location for a wedding and their food is brilliant; highly recommended!
If you have not had the absolute PLEASURE of being at 2941 before, you are in for a real treat. It is the best restaurant in Northern Virginia, with a setting so great, you will swear you have been transported to the Oregon mountains or some garden spot in the Great Northwest. The waterfalls and lake, the trees, the vistas - just great! Words cannot describe the beauty of this place. That alone makes it just wonderful for a getaway wedding - right in Falls Church near the Beltway. Then add in its excellent food and superb service, and you really have a winner. When someone asks me to officiate a wedding at 2941, I always say, "You have chosen the best!"
