I'm bracing myself for the answers to this one, but I would like the expert opinions of this board. I have a few family members (parents + relatives) coming into town in a few weeks. I live in Georgetown, and they'll obviously be staying with me.
I was strongly considering making reservations at Sequoia, based on its location on the river. However, I've been investigating the reviews online and was floored! by what seemed to be the uniformly negative consensus: great view (someone wrote "if you could eat a view, this would be the best place in DC"), horrible service, mediocore food.
Has anyone gone to Sequoia and had a GOOD dining experience? Should I bother making reservations here, or try to find another place?
I'm obviously interested in somewhere that could showcase a part of DC that I love. But I don't know if it's worth going if the service is going to be condescending and the food only palatable.
