Per usual, the food was great. The drinks were great. And the service was great. Trummers continues to be one of the best fine dinning experiences in the area without being too snobby nor too expensive
We made reservations for an early dinner as first time diners and were blown away. The service was great and the food was even better. Great gem for anyone looking for a fresh, local meal. They also have an excellent wine selection.
Place is always stunning and staff is always friendly and helpful! We try to come back as many times as possible but we live far, and yet we always commit to return. Kudos to Mike for always taking care of the bar and making the environment fun and delicious cocktails.
We had a wonderful 19th Anniversary dinner. We arrived early and had a drink at the bar before being brought up to our table. We had a nice quiet corner and enjoyed several appetizers before our entrees arrived. Dessert was delicious, and they brought us bonus bites and glasses of Reisling to toast our Anniversary. Always a wonderful evening when we pick Trummers!
Food was good - menu is on the smaller side but not in a bad way. Interesting choices with thought to ensure there's something for everyone. Desserts were truly delicious with the Apfel Kuchen being ridiculously so... just get it if it's on the menu. The focaccia was also spectacular - truly elevated bread - how did they do that??? And the service was amazing...in these times of dragging, unimpressive service, Trummers has figured it out. A great night out...
Sat outside. Food and service were excellent. We had the spare ribs and the risotto. Both were fabulous. Great specialty drinks. Truly enjoyed the evening.
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!
incredible food and the very best service I could ask for.
The service was the best part of the evening. The staff was very attentive and accommodating. The menu was not very robust, but it was okay.
Trummer's made my 65th birthday celebration the special event I had hoped for. Wonderful and friendly service, great food and lovely ambience. Best place to have that special evening celebration.
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 food and amazing service
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.
Excellent food, perfect night to eat outdoors too!
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!
We celebrated our 7 year anniversary at Trummers and are so glad we did. Staff was amazing! Very attentive, congratulated us on our anniversary several times, including a lovely dessert dish with it spelled out in chocolate. It was a lovely evening!
Great food and service. Remarkably tender chicken and pork loin. The halibut was also cooked perfectly.
Trummers was the perfect spot for a relaxing, romantic dinner. Great food and ambiance!
Birthday for my wife
Trummer’s gets better every time we go. Heirloom Tomato appetizer was perfect and the Scallops entree might be the best Scallops I have ever had. Thank you again for an amazing Anniversary Dinner!
Great anniversary dinner
Another perfect evening at Trummer’s. We celebrated my dad’s birthday and the staff at Trummer’s made it incredibly special. We tried just about everything on the menu and it was all delicious (as usual). We couldn’t have had a better evening
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.
Trummer’s is an excellent restaurant in every way. Great place for celebrating a special day.
We celebrated my husband’s birthday. The food was delicious. I had the scallops and my husband had the halibut. Their signature drink was very good. We will definitely eat there again!
Food was great and the portions were bigger than we expected out of this variety of brunch restaurant. Highly recommend the french toast
I love Trummer's and the menu changes. The porch is nice with a little slant. the service is exceptional especially Mike! I love my titanics and other drinks are great too. I can't wait to go back!
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.
Great atmosphere, drinks and food! Service was great, we will def go back.
Perfecto. Needless to say even more
