Our wedding reception at Sequoia on 10.15.16 was absolutely PERFECT! We had the pleasure of working with Lila for the year leading up to our wedding, and she is simply wonderful. The entire process was smooth and stress-free! We held cocktail hour on the second floor during sunset and our guests (approximately 160) then moved down for dinner and dancing in the main dining room. Guests raved about the view from both floors of Sequoia, the food (passed appetizers and seated dinner), liquor package (with high-end liquors included in the basic package) and the fantastic level of service from the wait staff. Our parents and wedding planner could not say better things about Lila. Her responsiveness, knowledge, attention to detail and love for her job made wedding planning so much easier for me! She kept the reception on schedule and delivered everything exactly as I wished. She worked so incredibly hard to make my vision come to life. Also, we worked out a payment schedule to help space out the payments. Even though Lila plans multiple weddings at once, it felt like we were the only one! When I entered our reception for the first time, I was absolutely stunned - I could not even believe that it was my reception. It was so beautiful, elegant, and better than I could have imagined. Sequoia does not require tons of decorations to be beautiful – the venue itself is stunning with its view of the Kennedy center, floor to ceiling windows, hardwood floors and modern decor. We rented the gold chairs and decorated with gold as well – the entire venue just sparkled! The package included all sorts of extras – a signature cocktail, late night sweets passed to guests, a suite for the newlyweds at the Graham on the wedding night, just to name to a few! As Sequoia is on the water, we decided to exit on a boat that could pull up right outside! Sequoia is one of the best wedding venues in DC and the perfect choice! You can’t go wrong with the fabulous location, service and view!

We hosted our son's rehearsal dinner for 80 people in the State Room on September 23, 2016. One reason this venue was perfect was that in addition to the restaurant being located on the harbor in Georgetown, the State Room has its own private bar and terrace. The weather was very pleasant that night, so our guests really enjoyed being able to move outside for the cocktail hour. The food was outstanding and the chef accommodated all of our guests who have various food allergies or food preferences. The serving staff were all very attentive and pleasant. We had many compliments on the entire event! I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Lila Dougly, the Catering Director for Sequoia (Ark Restaurants), who was so endearing and fun to work with. She carried us through with attention to every detail and I never worried for a moment.

If you want ease of planning and a white glove service during your wedding, book Sequoia! We planned from out of town and when the tasting/walk through arrived, we were impressed. When the wedding ceremony and reception arrived, we were blown away. We cannot thank Lila Dougly, Chris (Captain) and their staff for doing such a marvelous job. All of our guests were impressed with location, ambience and especially FOOD.

I cannot say enough positive things about Heather and her team at Sequoia! We were planning our wedding both from a distance and far in advance (we had a two-year engagement and booked the venue more than a year-and-a-half before the wedding) and Heather was extremely attentive to all of our needs and speedy in all of her responses - I felt like I had a lot of questions, but she never made me feel like the barrage of questions was annoying!! I weighed whether or not to hire a day-of coordinator, but Heather reassured me that her team could take care of everything that I would have hired a day-of coordinator for (setting up escort cards, cookie table, welcome table, etc.). Given how thorough Heather was, I knew that her team would be on top of everything, and she did not disappoint. We were escorted down to the reception by one of her team members, who made sure we had a drink in hand and a plate of appetizers before we went up to cocktail hour (they guessed - correctly! - that we would be too busy greeting our guests during dinner to eat). From start to finish, the Sequoia staff made our wedding reception absolutely perfect - I cannot recommend them enough!

Sarah and her staff were absolutely amazing ! They performed to perfection ! Our guests all commented that this was by far the best venue that they had ever attended and the setting was just perfect - with the water, boats, lights from the cocktail hour views - just magnificent ! The main dining room was Gorgeous ! This was without any doubt, THE best experienced that we could hope for - Sarah and her team exceeded all of our expectations and hit the ball out of the park !!!! The food was served piping hot, delicious and plentiful portions ! The bartenders and wait staff were all spot on with their service and wanting to serve our guests !!! It was a very common comment afterwards from our guests, "I felt like I was being pampered at a Five Star Hotel wedding reception " Bravo Sequoia - Well done !!! If I had more daughters we would be back again for their wedding receptions .... :)

We couldn't have possibly imagined a more perfect venue for our wedding day. The views and interior stunned our guests, the food was unbelievable, and their service was impeccable. We worked with Heather Garvin for our event, who was always responsive and helpful, fielding my countless emails and questions in the weeks leading up to the wedding without a beat. Sequoia even provided a personal server to make sure that our and our parents' needs were attended to throughout the night. We genuinely can't say enough about how Sequoia exceeded our expectations! Our guests are still raving about the space and the food!

Our August wedding reception at Sequoia was perfect in every way. The venue was ideal for our ~200 guest reception with 8-piece band. We could not have ordered up a better evening (or planned it) and we were lucky to be able to hold the cocktail reception outside. The views of the sun setting over the water were amazing and our guests raved about the appetizers and service from start to finish. The pigs in a blanket were a definite hit and the main course of braised short rib/crabcake combo with asparagus and potatoes was definitely on point and our guests were still talking about it after the event. From the moment we signed the contract, almost a year ahead, we knew we had made a great decision. Heather Garvin was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. We never worried about a thing and the end result was outstanding. The service the night-of was exceptional and the staff was attentive and pleasant all around. Our families (and the two of us) were completely taken care of and never without a drink or water in hand - something you don't realize the true value of until that night! A particularly special moment was right before the main reception began, my new husband and I had a chance to sit up on the mezzanine and raise a glass together (and enjoy a much needed plate of food). We had the chance to watch down over our guests enjoying cocktail hour and take in an incredible sunset over the water for a few minutes. To be able to have that moment together was a really neat addition we also credit Sequoia for making happen. Overall, we couldn't be happier to have chosen Sequoia as a venue.

Heather was a wonderful coordinator and was wonderful helping us plan the wedding from afar. She helped me even up until the night before the wedding work out kinks and any anxieties I had. Our guests raved about the view from sequoia. The staff were professional and our personal waitress for the night made sure we always had a full glass and even packed us a box of our wedding meal to go that evening. It was a wonderful experience!

The event coordinator, Sarah Peterson, was amazing to work with. She was very responsive to all our questions. She helped us narrow down decisions and worked with us on the overall design of the floor plan and menu. She was open to all our suggestions and was very accommodating. I would recommend her to anyone looking to have their wedding at the Sequoia as the person to work with. The food for our wedding was delicious and cooked perfectly. The servers were very helpful to all of the guests.

Sequoia is a total WIN for wedding receptions! Here's why: outstanding location and views, food and menu options, service/hospitality by the events and catering manager, Heather (and her staff), great ambiance, energy, flexibility in planning, and then some. Choosing Sequoia DC for our reception was the best decision we made in planning our wedding. There was very little that we asked for that could not be accommodated, and often at the last minute. This ranged from menu choice changes to accommodate vegan diets, to having a last minute deejay area, to having many updates to the seating chart and headcount. The team was so accommodating, responsive, and easy to work with, my spouse and I were so relieved. On the day of, we were taken care of from beginning to end. We didn't need to ask for much, but when we did, everything was provided quickly and with a smile and a glass of champagne. We lucked out with a gorgeous (albeit warm) day, and guests really enjoyed the patio area to mingle and look out on the gorgeous water and views of DC and Rosslyn. We also had a portable photo booth set up outside which added to the fun atmosphere. Inside the State Room, we had enough room for 85 guests, which included several children (Sequoia provided all of the booster seats) and room for some strollers. Guests raved about the quality and taste of the brunch offerings, and enjoyed the open bar with a variety of beer, wine, and brunch cocktails. We were also provided a dance floor and plenty of additional tables to set up a candy bar/buffet, our guest reception cards, cupcake stands, etc. Overall, given the location, amenities, and level of service, we felt the cost of our contract was very reasonably priced and would highly recommend Sequoia and its awesome team to anyone looking to celebrate such an important day with family and friends!

Scott, Sarah and Chris did an amazing job at my son's rehearsal dinner. They responded quickl to every email and request along the way and were great to work with before and during the event. The view from the room was beautiful and added to the fun evening. The food and the service was excellent and I would highly recommend this venue to anyone. Thank you all so much.
