Great ambiance and beautiful decor, went in just for a drink as most restaurants were closed on Christmas day.

what a beautiful place, overlooking the water, ice skating rink...service was excellent. Wonderful selection of breakfast, lunch and meat carvings. Fabulous desserts. Freshly made, hot donuts! White chocolate bread pudding was my favorite. Loved the specialty Bellinis, Bloody Mary's. The salmon and quinoa salads were delicious. A few good pastas. Freshly made eggs Benedict with crab meat and spinach. Great... More

Went to Sequoia for a rehearsal dinner. They took amazing care of our large party, and the food was great!

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

We ate here a couple of times during the Veterans Day weekend. We had the buffet on Sunday.....what a wonderful selection of food. Great variety. Service was exceptional. On a return trip we had the steak. Excellent....and a very nice presentation. The restaurant location can't be beat. It is right of the River and since there is ceiling to floor... More

Business dinner - why do we always order a seafood tower? Impressive to look at - hard to eat. Food was great, service pleasant in a beautiful space.

Bread was stale, drinks were bad, food was marginal. We were a party of 10, spent a lot of money and most of us were disappointed in the meal. I had the whole Red Snapper – painfully overcooked, asparagus were superb. Ordered martinis – glasses were served half full and not cold enough. The location and decor are magnificent, how... More

We were taken to Sequioa for dinner during the week by family who live in the area. The location can't be beat. Definitely a touristy spot, the restaurant is located on the river in a shopping and entertainment complex. We watched the sun set over the Potomac as we ate. It was beautiful. The food was delicious and well prepared,... More

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
