In the middle. Good food but not a wonderful experience

Though the decoration is beautiful , the waiting for the food was insane... More than 40 minutes and the restaurant wasn't even full... The food is amazing, I really recommend the hanger steak. Wonderful combination of asparagus and cilantro sauce, wonderful meat. I think this is a kid-price... read more

The Sunday brunch here is totally worth it!! We live in Bethesda and had a visitor from out of town and wanted to show them Georgetown, so we decided to start with brunch at Sequioa. We had never been ourselves. We had an 11am reservation and when we arrived the place was nearly empty, which I thought was odd, but... More

If the weather permits, ask to be seated outside. The ambiance and view is great. Food quality is good - not great but good. Our waitstaff made up for it by being super helpful and attentive.

I used to go to the original Sequoia in NY near the original WTC back in the late 90's to early 2000's. LOVEd it!! Every Thursday and Friday night. This location is just as good except the locale is NOT right on the water and you can NOT take your drinks over the water like in NY. I have attended... More

This is a large, loud, bustling restaurant with bright giants windows and a view of the Potomac. Given the size and scale, it works well for large groups or families visiting the Georgetown / Watergate area. Best times to come are in the day light so you can enjoy watching the crew teams and boats out on the Potomac River.... More

So the view is great - that's about it. Here's the list of problems: 1) my son wanted a plain steak and fries - nothing fancy; I asked for the hangar steak and got charged for the full trimming ny steak PLUS the extra cost of the fries - I'm not worried about the cost really but $44 for a... More

I love this place. I have been coming here, both for business and pleasure, for more than 20 years. The location, on the Potomac, is spectacular. During the warm weather months, the harbor area is alive and festive. If the weather is nice, consider dining outdoors. The menu offers something for everyone. The food is excellent. We have always found... More

Young wait staff at the outside seating area needs to be trained in manners that they never learned. After watching 5 of them, including the bartender, play with bubbles instead of wait on us, we thought maybe this was a serve yourself bar. Hostess assured us it was not, and after another round of watch staff stand idol and hearing... More

This restaurant is a tourist trap. First of all there was a wedding in the main dining room. The noise from the music was unbearable. The service is cafeteria style - no class at all. All the food was ready in minutes, which tells you that all is pre-cooked. We were out of there in 45 minutes and $200 later.... More
