We had a Retirement Lunch there for 11 business partners, and Pete, our waiter, was amazing. There were only a few other parties, so the atmosphere was perfect. Thank you for the quick response, and accommodations for the party at such an early time. THANKS!
The recently renovated dining room with bar is improved. The space in dining is open where natural light brings more passive heat during winter. Nice view of the Kennedy Center, Potomac River and water sports. Food are marvelous and healthy in every meal. Our waiters who are responsive to what we need or order for food are very friendly and hospitality, too.
Fabulous food and service from the moment we walked in until our meal was finished.
Beautiful location, excellent service...very expensive. Definitely worth the price if you enjoy seafood; if not, other DC brunch options are just as good for half the price.
The service was terrible. Our server brought us all the wrong plates twice, and we had to send them back to the kitchen both times. We did not receive any sort of discount for this. She and the rest of the staff were also very rude. When I finally did receive my correct salad, the chicken was very undercooked. I sent it back again and did not receive a replacement after that.
Came for the new Saturday tapas style brunch. Loved all the items we ordered. The shrimp and grits was my fav. My friend loved her hash. All the portions we're just right. Best part of course was the all you can drink sparkling rose. Our server was on point too. Guided us through the menu and what items to order. We will definitely be back.
Our waiter, Pete, was great, and the food was outstanding . Our view of the waterfront was Beautiful and the decor is elegant. We will definitely return.
Great service! The manger was also very welcoming!
The entrance to this restaurant is a bit hard to find, as GPS directions drop you off on the street where you cannot see the restaurant. It's right near the ice rink. On the night we dined, there was an event in what is usually their main dining room, but the alternate room was quite comfortable. Bar made good drinks! There was no prix fixe menu on this evening, but we found some yummy choices. The lobster risotto and it was delicious with LOTS of lobster. My friend had the squash soup, which was outstanding. Also the scallops, which were excellent. We finished with very good cappuccino and the deconstructed s'mores. One of the reasons I keep returning here is that the Kennedy Center is in walking distance, with a path right out Sequoia's door.
The parking in the garage was $22. Food was very expensive. Service was spoiled when a manager I stopped on the way out to complain about the lousy dessert served for my birthday. Though it was provided as a treat I resented that it was a chocolate tipped cone served on top of a stale cupcake. It came to the table with a Roman Candle so I expected at least a half way delicious dessert! When I complained the gentleman manager said, “That’s no good in a place like this”, and continued seating other patrons. Kale served with my lamb chops was exchanged for delicious Brussels Sprouts. My brother enjoyed his salmon and my son says the bacon cheeseburger was delicious. I will not be returning to Sequoia Restaurant!
Sequoia is the landmark for fine dining in DC, with floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views of the Potomac River. Enjoy fresh, delicious seafood and American fare in a dynamic atmosphere.
