We loved this place! Went there twice during our one week stay in National Harbor. The first night I had a grilled shrimp pizza that was perfect. Went back a few nights later and had another great meal. This place is great and the service was top notch!

I had two breakfasts and a lunch here during a convention. They can get you in and out quickly. The omelet station served good food and the fruit was ripe and tasty. For lunch, I was able to get some sliced meat and a salad. It is a relaxed atmosphere under the glass roof of the hotel and a fine... More

The atmosphere was nice, good views, pleasant staff. The menu was all buffet. Now they gave you types of buffet choices but no ordering off the menu. I do not like buffets. The food was good so that was pleasant. I would have preferred to order off the menu.

Great in terms of convenience if you don't want to get out of the resort.Located in the atrium amidst greenery. You can try the various food stations for different price points. Continental had among a few other items -cereal, boiled eggs, croissants, bagels ,bread and cut fruits. No full grain ( multigrain ) bread options given the price point was... More

If you go for breakfast, get the made-to-order omelet at the end of buffet line. Nice servers, but disappointing food choices.

Skip this place. Concept is you can get a quick meal on the run. Offer cheeseburgers, pizza, chicken fingers, pre made sandwiches, mac and cheese. But food is not kept warm and drinks not kept cold. This is a total miss in execution on the part of the hotel. There is also very, very few places to eat your meal... More

If we had not had a hotel credit to burn I would have gotten up and walked out. As soon as we were shown to the table I immediately handed the waitress a coffee cup with lipstick stains. Euwe! After sitting down I had to move the placemat that had not been wiped clean. Double euwe!. There was food on... More

We did takeout on Christmas and found that although the pizza was excellent, it was quite expensive.

This dinner buffet had very limited selections and they were all fairly average. Pork chops were good, salmon was lousy. Price was $25/person with an automatic 18% gratuity added for a party of six. Ridiculous for a buffet. There are plenty of interesting restaurants in town.
