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.
It was my birthday brunch and it was just as nice as it always is. Never disappointed. It’s pricey but well worth every penny.
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
My waiter and waitress were great. I think their names were Jared and Rachel! The fried chicken could have been more seasoned but all the other was great!
Service was exceptional , food was outstanding . My family and I will definitely be back.
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.
It was my sons 16th birthday brunch. Had a great time and took my kids for the first time, they loved it!! Everyone got their fill but left room for dessert.
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.
The tasted amazing. The waitress and waiter did an outstanding job. I love the brunch. Like always, I had a wonderful time.
Daughter 8th birthday brunch with friends
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
I’ve been to the buffet at Sequoia many times and had an amazing experience. However, the past weekend we went and it was not at all what we are used to and very disappointing. I made the reservation 2 weeks before for a 21st birthday and they called to confirm the day before. She mentioned we would be seated in a different room, I said that would be fine as long as everything else was the same, she confirmed it would be. We get there and it is nothing like the buffet. You order off a menu, and yes it’s endless plates but it is not the same as a buffet. I asked if I could customize an omelet (the have an omelet bar for the buffet) and was told no. The desserts are no where near the choices you have at the buffet... the cost was the same (at least within a few dollars). Had the woman that called to confirm the reservation been truthful that it would not be the same I would of cancelled the reservation. It was awkward trying to share plates with others at your table and we waited around so the waiter could get us our next request... this does not happen with a buffet. I feel like they were very dishonest about the experience we were getting and should of been upfront especially when your paying a lot of money to have what should be an amazing brunch. HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED.
Date nite was great, family friendly environment.
Excellent experience. Service was professional, friendly and flawless. Food was one of the best I’ve had in DC. Cocktails were inventive and delicious. One of the most underrated restaurants in DC. Highly recommend it!
This will be the last time I come back for NYE! The service tonight was extremely poor. It took over an hour to order drinks to the point that we had to go to the bar directly to get our drinks.
My intro plate was cold and had to be sent back to be hot. Our waitress never check in with us even when the manager came over. I don’t know if they are understaff for this evening but unacceptable when people are coming out paying a prefix price to bring in the new year. Unacceptable!
I called ahead to make sure they had our reservation and to let them know it was my father's birthday we were celebrating (as well as New Year's Eve). I asked if they do anything special for birthday's and if they could surprise my dad, and they said of course and that they do complimentary dessert with sparklers. When we got there they sat us in a corner next to an outside door, and because of the door or the vents the curtains kept blowing on us an other customers nearby. Many people complained about the curtains blowing everywhere and the draft but nothing was done about it. Then service was terrible. We waited a really long time just to get water, and we had to ask multiple times to get our drinks, to get our next course, and to just get any kind of help. We had to keep asking. Finally I went to management at the front desk to ask about the service and to make sure they were still doing the birthday dessert for my dad. One of the managers apologized and said they would make sure we were helped, but service never really improved, we had to ask for the New Year's Eve party favors that everyone got except us, and my dad never got his birthday surprise dessert. For all the money that was spent and after we asked multiple times for service, I expected better. I would not come back here again.
I love sequoia. It was NYE, so i get it. But the food was okay and service fair.
I’ll go back but for brunch!
We've been going to the Sequoia to dine and dance on New Year's Eve for many years. This year, the Sequoia hired a Latin band for the dancing. Why?? Previous musical groups have been excellent, and they always included some Latin numbers. This year's group played primarily Latin tunes, and their efforts at playing more conventional numbers was mediocre at best. If Sequoia was going to have a Latin band, then they should have highlighted that in their promotional materials. It was a very disappointing evening....although I should add that the food was the best ever. Mel Goodman
TERRIBLE experience at this place for New Year’s Eve. Really had high hopes since we were paying a very high price for their pre-set menu but SERVICE was not up to the price. We had a guy whom took about 15mins to greet us his excuse ‘sorry I thought you guys were waiting on two more guest’ REALLY sequoia that’s the best you can do on new year eve. I don’t care if I’m there by myself a decent server would of at least come around and introduce himself.. after that everything went downhill, let me make it short to you all he took 15mins to greet imagine how long it took for our 1st order of drinks and food to get to the table. Idk if they were understaff but I even saw people from a table in front of us get up and grab drinks from the bar since it was much faster.. food was just okay nothing special for a VERY special price! Do not see myself coming back here in the future..
Great Service for NYE
Went for New Years Eve and thought 8pm would be an early seating and the second seating would be the one that goes into midnight. We’ll be got charged for second seating and weren’t expecting it. Our bill was $208 before tip. We left at 9:30. We didn’t get to stay till midnight for that price!
Food was excellent but no bread with dinner and no coffee or tea with desert? Really strange. Don’t go for New Years. Rip off.
Open table did not give times for seatings.
New Years Eve
Excellent Service from the beginning to the end. The customer service was beyond my expectation.
Birthday for my wife. Ellie was a great waitress!
Loved our time at this place! The food, drinks, ambience, and service are all top-notch. Will definitely be coming back!
We were greeted warmly upon arrival. Our servers were the dynamic duo of Fong and Pete! The salmon and crab cake entrees were outstanding!
Thank you for a memorable evening on our visit from NYC!
Took some friends to experience the brunch that I went to on a Sunday. The Saturday brunch is a different menu so I was disappointed with that but the food offered was still excellent! We had a wonderful time and will return!
