Had dinner before the show at Kennedy Center. We started with their cheese and meat sampler it was very good except for the portion was very small. For the main course I ordered the Roast Chicken which was very tender. My partner ordered the steak which according to him was okay but not spectacular. His words was "i had better... More

One of my friends raved about this place and practically begged me to go to brunch with her one Sunday over the summer. It was okay but not worth the price, the food was good but not great and the service was mediocre. I was expecting some grand set-up of the best and finest foods in the area but that... More

We had high hopes for Sequoia - made a reservation for our group of 10 on a Wednesday night. The restaurant is beautiful (designed to look like a cruise ship - ask for the story of how Sequoia got its name.) We started with their seafood tower appetizer, which was huge and beautiful and had lots of good things on... More

We met our friends from Canada in DC for a long weekend getaway. DC has some fantastic dining locations! We went for a river cruise out of Georgetown and wanted to grab a drink after. We saw the outdoor patio from the boardwalk and wanted to check it out. They have a great outdoor terraced patio with couches and tables... More

It was a beautiful Autumn day along the river front this weekend, when we opted for burgers outside the Sequoia for lunch. The burgers were really good, I must say. Service, however, was not up to par AT ALL. They seemed poorly trained, or just rather unprofessional though I guess well intended. Every time something took too long, whether it... More

Extraordinary Sunday Brunch Experience over.ooking the Potomac River. We had an extensive selection from a raw bar to Eggs Benedict with crab meat and so much in between. Unlimited Mimosas or bloody Mary's to add to the relaxation and unhurried dining experience.

Every couple needs that one expensive, romantic yet luxurious restaurant destination and for my fiancé and I, that place is Sequoia. We went for Saturday brunch---bottomless mimosas until 330pm, great staff, and a beautiful view of the water. It's worth what you pay for!

My husband and I ate lunch at Sequoia after disembarking from the river cruise. The restaurant offered a great view of the Potomac River and since it was off-season we had our pick of the outside tables. Although the food was great--crab cakes and fish tacos--the waitress failed to pay attention to our table and the service was not the... More
