"We drove out to Paris, VA for brunch and were very impressed. The restaurant is small, cozy, warm, in a beautiful old inn, you feel surrounded by so much history. Great views of the countryside from our window. The food was absolutely spectacular, very creative, very pretty and just delicious. Everyone from our server to the manager to the rest of the staff was incredibly warm and welcoming. Service was paced perfectly to allow time to savor all the flavors. Once winter is behind us, we intend to drive out again and sample the dinner menu. All in all, a wonderful experience."

The jewel of the Washington Harbour, Sequoia remains a landmark of fine dining by the Potomac. Our culinary team creates innovative, modern American fare. Coupled with panoramic views of the Kennedy Center, the Watergate, Memorial and Key Bridges and the flotilla of boats passing by, Sequoia creates an unforgettable dining experience. Please note all reservations are for inside only. Dining on the patio is seated on a first come first serve basis.

"I enjoy going to Sequoia because this is a restaurant that is consistently reliable, both in terms of fine food and good service, not to mention the beautiful dining room and wonderful views along the Potomac. With the recent addition of beautiful new upholstered seating, the sound level is perfect for a nice dinner with friends because you can actually hear them! This particular evening, we were warmly greeted at the front desk and then we had spectacular service from our waiter, Gio, who did an outstanding job guiding us through our dinner experience. His suggestions were very helpful and he paced the meal perfectly. We started with an order of crabmeat stuffed mushrooms which was plenty for two. My companion and I both decided to have the Steak au Poivre special of the evening and were not disappointed. It was delicious, tender and cooked perfectly. The wine list provided ample opportunity to enjoy some great wines by the glass. We were pleasantly surprised by Sequoia treating us to a dessert of Bombolini, small custard filled pastries with three dipping sauces - caramel, chocolate and vanilla, and they were absolutely delicious. All in all, a wonderful time at Sequoia once again. Many thanks to Gio, chef and Sequoia team for a great evening! Looking forward to returning again."

"We were looking for a nice, family dinner, good steaks and efficient service, but got none of these. These steaks are very expensive considering what you end up with. The service was very spotty, and I found our server to be opinionated on what to get, what not to get, and somewhat obnoxious as a result. We had to beg for the check and by that time I wanted out of there. He would disappear for long times. My filet was very fatty and that was surprising, I could barely eat half of it. My husband had rib-eye on the bone which was supposed to be the hot ticket, but says he had better steaks at the old Bonanza steak house. We know fine dining and it wasn't Flemings. Sorry we dragged our family and friends there. Bottom line, we were very disappointed, found it overpriced and we were underwhelmed."
