Did not realize that the main dining room was booked for a wedding hence the low score for ambiance as we were seated in the back room. Music from the wedding was very loud. Otherwise the food and service were excellent!!

Would definitely come again but will call the restaurant first:)

Thanksgiving reservation but wasn’t clear about the $79.00 per person buffet as being the only option. Don’t get me wrong the buffet was beyond most buffets I’ve had in quality of the food but I might have opted going somewhere else instead of paying $400 for a party of 4. Sequoia needs to be clear about days like these where the only option is the buffet. Other than that the service was excellent as well.

This was for the Thanksgiving buffet special . The selection of the foods was awesome and the drinks were modestly priced.Th place was sold out, but the service didn't seem to suffer. I would recommend it for the Sunday buffet as well

We always love the buffet dining that Sequoia puts on either for a holiday or Sunday brunch. We were looking forward to it and enjoyed it as did our kids. Our only issue was with the crab legs. King Crab legs were advertised while there were only snow crab legs available. They were good and we had our fill but we definitely had our hearts sent on some big crab legs! We will definitely be back!

The food, wine and service was all excellent. The only drawback was that the venue, which is quite large, was practically empty on an early Friday evening.

I took a friend to Sunday brunch for her birthday and she absolutely LOVED it!! So did her husband. Everything was fresh and well maintained. The staff was friendly and I loved that all the food was centrally located in one big room. And the desserts were awesome as well! Will be back soon for sure.

This would have been a 5 star review if we had been seated closer to our reservation time instead of an hour later — and we had to stand while we waited. Once we were seated, everything was great.

Excellent brunch selection, attentive service ( our server made sure our drinks were full and continuously offered and brought refills) & beautiful location. My only very small issue was the wait time for a table, we placed a reservation but it still took quite some time to get us sat. I’m sure this only happens during brunch, definitely returning with friends.

We arrived for a special occasion dinner and were not told that the main dining room had been booked for a private event. We were instead seated downstairs in a too-bright, pedestrian room that made us feel as if we were at a corporate lunch or a wedding brunch. It sort of ruined the whole vibe.
