I'll give it a 3, but I have to say I really didn't like Sequoia. It could be that I went with the wrong expectations, but the place felt very confused to me. The outside was a loud mix of college students and mostly drunk middle-agers in search of long-lost youth dancing and partying, so if you were hoping to... More

This is a wonderful place to enjoy Christmas Brunch. We were able to get a reservation very late in the day Christmas Eve for the next day. The restaurant is bright at airy on right on the Potomac so the view is great. I was very impressed by the variety and quality of food offered for the brunch. Everything was... More

Sitting by the window of this restaurant gives you a great view of the Potomac. The ambiance is appealing and the food is also good. It is a great place for a drink and an appetizer or dinner with a date.

I went there for Dinner with friends and ordered the Lobster & Shrimp Enchilada Fettuccine. It is definitely a great dish that just rapes your seafood-loving taste buds! The pasta, lobster, shrimp and white sauce could not make a better combo. Very much recommended. The ambiance was really vibrant and fun with everyone talking loud and enjoying their drinks while...

The wait staff were very attentive and professional. The restaurant is located by a beautiful waterfront area with other shops and restaurants. We stayed from 12:30-4p. The bellinis were... More

My girlfriend and I returned to Sequioa after a lovely dining experience there last year. We were off to a good start when our server "Ozzie" (possibly, Azzi - no name tags) took our drink order promptly. Upon his return with the alcohol he asked if we had questions regarding the menu. My girlfriend explained her garlic allergy particularly regarding... More
