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

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
