    I’ve been to Seqouia before the food is always great. Server did take a while in between courses to tend to us, which I do understand to a degree but towards the end we were ready to go and waited a while for the check, other than that his service was great.

    Reserved a table at Sequoia to celebrate a special occasion. Opted for outdoor seating and really glad we did. The view of the Potomac was breathtaking and the scene was vibrant and energetic. The wait staff was very attentive and service across courses was prompt and seamless. I must say that the drinks, appetizers and desserts were my favorite and all truly wonderful. I would rate the entrees in term of quality, y and serving sizes overall as good for the price. I would definitely recommend Sequoia as a place to dine and enjoy a relaxing afternoon/evening with family and /or friends. It definitely gets a little turned up after dark. A definite spot for a return visit in the near future.

    I hate to complain but when my waiter's english is so poor that I cant understand the explanation of the dish is this my fault? I asked SEVERAL times, I tried very hard to understand. Service was good aside from this. Also we had to move inside because the awful noise coming from the boats made it impossible to enjoy our meal. Someone needs to say something. Those boaters are drunk and boisterous with booming music and shouting and even one person falling between the boat and the edge and being seriously injured.

    Great food, great service, wonderful setting sitting outside. It was a crowded day on Fathers Day, and many were out on the boats with loud music. But thankfully, it wasn’t horrible. Food was spectacular but the check at the end was quite pricey.

    Sequoia has changed for the worse. The food was not tasty. Even when we sent certain food items back, what they brought back to us was not even edible. I was extremely disappointed because my effort was to trat my husband and son to a wonderful Father's Day meal, which turned out to be a disaster. THEY DID NOT ENJOY THEIR FOOD AT ALL! I had my food packed to go and threw it away when I got home. A long and exhaustive trip from Towson, Maryland to DC, only to be extremely disappointed and embarrassed on Father's Day!

    The location is beautiful so I continue to go back, but today I think was the last time. We arrived at brunch with friends to learn that they increased the price by $40 pp, to $120 pp. The buffet was no different—just a way to get a few more dollars from their guests. This price increase certainly wasn’t listed when we made the reservation. Then, they refused to open the umbrellas over the outdoor tables, citing wind. Shocking that a restaurant on the waterfront doesn’t have umbrellas to withstand some wind. The decision was arbitrary because the umbrellas were opened over their host stands. We got burned by the sun. When we tried to open them, we were scolded by the managers. We were also scolded by the lady at the sushi counter for misidentification of the sushi—there were no signs. The service has gone downhill since we started brunching here — it’s time to move on. We were patient a few weeks ago when we had to wait almost an hour for their system to restart to accept payment (and they refused to accept cash, instead making us wait). Then our experience this week. It seems like they don’t really care about their guests and just about the dollars they’re earning? That approach isn’t sustainable. I’ll be canceling the remainder of my reservations.

    We went for our anniversary and it was the first time we had been there. There was a wedding going on which looked pretty fun, but we had to walk to the other side of the restaurant to be seated. Not so bad. The restaurant feels more like a hall with very tall ceilings and was very open. The service was very good at first. The food was really good. More than we could eat. For some reason it took a while to get our bill. That’s why there was a rating of 4 for service. The view from the restaurant was so nice. Right on the Potomac. I would recommend this restaurant.

    Saturday tapas brunch was nice. First time there on a Saturday. I really enjoyed the small plate concept more than I anticipated. This allowed you to eat various options without getting overly stuffed like one tends to do during a buffet setting. The food was very good, had traditional breakfast and the crab omelette. Limitless mimosas and Bellinis were a plus. Only con, table waiter was rather slow. But food was delivered to table in a timely manner once order was placed.

    Took my husband to Sequoia to celebrate him... and he loved it!! Way to go Sequoia. The Saturday brunch is tapas style which means you order from the menu a couple choices 2-3 different dood choices and they bring small portions of food to you. Glasses always topped off w champagne for a Mimosa or Bellini; I had to say plz slow down for me. The pastries were so fresh and tasty. The waffle and chicken was good. Chicken was chicken tenders; pretty good!! The shrimp and grits; EXCELLENT! pancakes - were missing something (salt?) Even after adding butter - just didn't taste right. Odd bc the waffles were tasty. Hubby loved the oysters! He even nominated thus restaurant as his favorite thus far! So glad he enjoyed it! I prefer the Sunday brunch though... but Tapas style wasn't bad. Whichever you choose - you will enjoy!!! 😉

    We love Sequoia, which is why we've selected it as our go to for special occasions a few times! However, this visit was less than amazing for two reasons...very slow service (waited more than an hour for dinner) and little engagement by our server. We had to look for him most of the evening, he didn't keep us updated on status of dinner, and we had to ask a couple of times for replacement utensils.

    Sat by the window with a lovely view to find a piece of food on the floor with a pile of ants. The staff cleaned up right away but very disconcerting to see. The food was a bit bland - and on the pricey side for the quality and taste. Restaurant was very loud and hard to have a conversation. Service was great, so complements to the staff.
