Sequoyah Restaurant Complaint - I did request for a "well done" steak!!!
FOGGY BOTTOM, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA -- My company invited me & my co-workers along with our spouses to the "Sequoyah Restaurant" in Foggy Bottom, Washington DC.
After couple of drinks & few good remarks from management, it was time for our dinner. at each table there were 6 to 8 couples, we had bread & butter along with salad. From menu, I ordered steak meat & requested to be cooked "well done" & my wife & others couples order fish & chicken. When the waiter brought my dish, I cut thru the meat & it was all bloody red & raw meat. I have never had eaten this kind of "raw" meat in my life. I asked for my meat to be re-cooked. He took my dish to the kitchen & brought it back right away & It was "raw" again... Since the steam was coming out of it, I had a feeling it was cooked in the microwave. Since I could not eat the "raw" meat, I cut the meat in half & I requested again for my dish to be "really" cooked this time. Meanwhile, others including my wife were eating their food, joking, & laughing at me with my dish & my "well cook" requests.!!!
One of them jokingly told me "is it done yet!?".
When the waiter came back with my food, half of the meat was gone & other half was cooked but still was somewhat raw. I just ate cooked part of the remaining half. After we left, we stopped by a fast-food restaurant & got a "well done" hamburger.!
I would not order a steak dish from this Sequoyah restaurant again, since there is no "well done" understanding in their service!!!
