Sequoia Restaurant Review

: This enormous restaurant, which resembles the dining room of a luxury liner docked on the Georgetown riverfront, is not particularly appealing for its food, but its deck is one of the few places you can eat outdoors in good weather and enjoy a view of the river. Even indoors, you get a decent bird’s eye view of the Potomac. Service is negligent and the food is indifferent, but order a beer or a glass of wine and enjoy watching the crew teams practice on the river. If you do decide to eat, the cuisine is decidedly American: lots of steaks and seafood.
