First off.... South Street Seaport is a nice place for regulars like myself or tourists. It has some nice views and there are some decks where you can sit to enjoy it but that's the GOOD. The BAD: Sequoia... it has some pretty dated decor, horrible service and the food.... well i've had better from more affordable restaurants (Dallas BBQ) We made a reservation for two... sat outside and had a table that looked like it was going to tip over. A waiter that took wayy to long to take our order, the drinks were in cheap plastic cups, the food was dry, the bread was hard and they try to charge 5 star restaurant prices. Definitely will not return.

Went here for dinner and it was not cheap. Waiter said he was going to bring back check and disapeared for over 45 minutes. No exageration. Had to ask host for check multiple times since waiter was no where to be found. He was also rude. First and only time I didn't tip. When you spend a couple hundred bucks for dinner and some wine you at least expect to be treated nicely.

A friend and I decided to eat lunch at Sequoia on a Saturday afternoon. We were waited on by a young lady who did not know anything about the menu. I asked her questions about the salads and her response was that she "did not know because she doesn't like salad." So I ordered a crab cake salad which when I asked what was in it she said "just salad with a crab cake" but did not mention that there were apples and feta which was not a very good combination with crab -- I would not have ordered it if I knew and on top of that the crab cake did not taste fresh and was almost $20. My friend who I was dining with asked if the blueberry pancakes had real, fresh blueberries or canned blueberries in syrup. She said fresh, but you can tell she really had no clue but my friend ordered them and they were actually canned and in syrup.

My friends and I were in Manhattan for a long weekend before we went on a cruise to the Bahamas. It was all of our first time in the City and we had no idea what to do for dinner last Friday night. To make a long story short... We found our way to the South Street Seaport where we came across a handsome and charming host on the downstairs level of Sequoia. He made our dining experience amazing. Food was okay but the atmosphere was great. From our weekend in Manhattan this guy was one of our fondest memories.

I was a guest at a Private Party at Sequoia. Even by the standards of what one should expect at such an event, it was the worst one I had ever attended. The room was loud and airless. We were told the AC was broken. The service, what little of what there was, was rude and slow. Waiters seemed most skilled at avoiding eye contact. Plates weren’t served, they were inflicted. Not actually thrown on the table, but very close to that. A request for a drink was an act of futility. There was such a lag between courses that it was easy to forget that one had been invited to a sit down dinner. The food, once it got to the table, was room temperature, and reminded me of an old Woody Allen line. ‘The food here isn’t very good, and the portions are so small.’ I felt very badly for my host, who had to pay for all this. There are many wonderful places in NYC to have a party, Sequoia isn’t one of them.

Our appetizer was fantastic, but my NY strip tasted like it hadn't been seasoned at allit was totally bland and mediocre. The only positive thing I can say is that least the kitchen didn't overcook it. After we were seated it took too long for someone to give us water and take our orders. Our meals came out in a reasonable amount of time. After that, we never saw our waiter (or any other) again. No water refills, despite my glass being empty before my main course even came. No offers for more wine and beer. No questions as to how our food was. The table next to us was also ignored, and the restaurant wasn't busy. I could get better food and service from at a chain restaurant. If I'm paying over $100 for a meal for two, I expect my water refilled and to be checked up on at least once. I will not return.
