Located on the banks of the Potomac River in Washington, DC, the floor-to-ceiling windows offer magnificent views of the Kennedy Center, Roosevelt Bridge, Roosevelt Island, Key Bridge, and the Virginia skyline. Dine in the main dining room, on the mezzanine, outside on the terrace, or in the private state room and enjoy some of the finest American cuisine in Washington, DC.

Enjoyed the view of the Potomac River. Had a fried cod fish sandwich without bread. Was good. Desert was listed as a lemon chiffon cake. could not taste lemon & was a heavy dense cake (vice light as chiffon usually is) - awful.
Service was satisfactory.

Having my dinner by the river has always been one of my favorite moments, the restaurant is so cozy and convenient, the staff was friendly and helpful. My family was so amazed by the place. I still have it on my list next time i visit D.C.

Sequoia is amazing! The food, wait staff, ambiance, presentation of food was impeccable! I would absolutely eat here again! I had the filet mignon it melted in my mouth. I was cooked perfectly . we had a party of five they do not rush you they make sure your drinks are filled without disturbing your conversations, I highly recommend eating here.

Been here by boat numerous times and the waterfront location is both convenient and beautiful. Visiting here by boat is even better then when I lived in this area and the drinks are good and served by a nice staff.

This was our first time dining here and Micheal was our server. He was efficient, attentive, professional, and personable even though the restaurant was super busy. Our meals apps through to desserts were fantastic. I loved the ambiance as well as the view of the water. Apparently they just completed a 10 million dollar reno and it shows. So pleased that the service matches the decor!! Would highly recommend.
