Love Sequoia tapas brunch for celebrations. They offer a “Frose” which is pretty and delicious. In addition, they have several other all you can drink brunch drinks included in the price. Saturday tapas includes yummy items like French toast, chicken and waffles, salmon toast and a good variety of options that aren’t all breakfast food. To add to your experience, ask to sit in Freddy’s or Carlos’ sections. They are both excellent at their jobs and will take very good care of you.

Awesome Saturday brunch. Tapas style with drinks included. Only downside is the tables are a little close together, so you can hear everyones conversation around you, but other that that an amazing experience.

Food was amazing but the cost was way too pricey for an hour brunch because we had to wait to be seated. Overall quality if the food was good but to spend $75 for brunch is overpriced.

I say upfront, this is not your normal brunch, nor it is your normal price. But the old saying goes, you get what you pay for and you definitely get a lot. So if you cant find a large number of items to satisfy your hunger, then I feel for you. From the waffles, omelets, bacon/sausage, soups, fried chicken, seafood, sushi, salads and dessert bar, we had a hard time walking out of the place. Well worth the money but here's a hint, make reservations.

Absolutely! I went with my girlfriend who was visiting from out of town to have brunch. She loved everything. The champagne brunch and all you can eat was perfect. The dessert bar was amazing and as always the view is picture perfect. I would definitely recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed Sequoia brunch. The service was excellent. The prime rib and crab cakes were to die for. It is also a beautiful walk along the Potomac to the Kennedy Center. The restaurant was a little noisy. Yes it was fully booked. Would highly recommend especially for a special occasion or party

For Sunday branch ($70 per person) which includes champagne, mimosa, or bloody mary you could not opt out alcohol if you don’t drink. Your option is to pay full price only and then it’s up to you drinking or not. Also, you could not substitute drinks for any others. Even with a big company don’t expect your included drinks to be on the table, waiters fill only one glass a time per person, and then you wait for some time to get another drink.
If you want nice coffee with your dessert like espresso, you pay extra.

Our chairs at our table were dirty. The flowers on the table were dead. For the price you pay, they could make things a lot nicer.

Always enjoy the food and service. The wait time was minimum, and my request was granted to dine by the window near the area for food because of my disability.

We didn't get seated until almost 10 minutes after our reservation, and we were told that brunch ended at 2pm, so we felt like we were rushing to get food and drinks thinking that service for brunch would end at 2pm. After we rushed through it, we were annoyed to see that brunch service did not actually end then, and our brunch party was stressed because of what we thought was a short timeline.

It was also nearly impossible to wave down a waiter, I think I only got a refill twice during the entire brunch. I know you all are busy, but if you're paying a premium for the brunch, it would be nice to have our drinks refilled.

Lastly - the party next to us was LOUD, and I mean REALLY LOUD. It was almost as if their group was a part of our brunch party, and we had to yell over each other to talk. I'll be back if I'm with someone I don't need to have a deep conversation with, because it's nearly impossible to have even the most surface-level conversation if you're screaming at each other.

I'll remember our brunch as stressful and loud. I'll go somewhere else next time.

I love the main food, but the dessert options to me were lacking. The dessert options needs to improve, offering: whole slices of cake, pies, cobblers, etc etc

Everything was amazing. Sunday brunch was pricey. It’s ok if you don’t plan on going often I guess but that seems a weird business strategy lol.

It is really is food for groups for brunch. The price seems high but the amount of food and options and drinks to choose from makes the price well worth it.

Sequoia's Sunday Brunch is truly unmatched. I've been twice and each time it has been incredible. Although it is on the pricier side, it is worth every penny. Additionally, the wait staff does not rush you out after a certain time limit. Each time I've gone, we've stayed for a long enough time to get our moneys worth but not so long that we're taking up a table for other guests. It's one of the best brunch experiences out there.

One of the best dining experiences I’ve had in a long time. All staff at Sequoia are amazingly professional and impeccable trained. Sequoia sets the bar high for hospitality and five-star service! The food is equally as impressive. Fresh, seasoned to perfection, and cooked with care. In all seriousness, many restaurants in the area could stand to learn something from Sequoia and take a page out of their book.

hmm. the food was cold and tasteless. the crowd certainly got their money's worth of the free buffet. stay away unless you want to meet lots of people on parole
