Excellent buffet breakfast

Don't go when you're in a hurry, but if you're not, you will enjoy it. The seating is in the atrium of the Gaylord Conference Center, so it's not exactly a quiet, out of the way place. However, breakfast was really good and there were lots of choices. We opted for the buffet breakfast which... read more

I ate breakfast here everyday morning during my five day stay at the Gaylord. The breakfast was very good and had a lot of variety. The dining experience was great. You eat inside the huge Gaylord atrium surrounded by trees and a garden. The staff was nice and the service was very good. My only complaint that it is insanely... More

I found the omelet bar and variety of breakfast items to be excellent, fresh food and a very attentive staff made for many great meals

We stopped here for breakfast after an overnight stay at the Gaylord National Harbor. We are early risers so we were pretty early to the restaurant and didn't have much competition for tables. We decided to have a portion of the breakfast buffet and hubby and I each had an omelet made to order. We're picky about having our eggs... More

$24/person for a sub-par breakfast buffet. Eggs were soggy and rubbery, waffles were dry and really hard. Fruit was decent and coffee was their only real achievement. I visited at around 10:00 am on a Saturday when the restaurant was fairly empty and instead of being seated in an area of the dining room that had some space I was... More

The food is delicious, but you must be prepared to wait a bit to get in. The Pienza appears understaff, so you may see empty tables, but no one available to wait them.

Breakfast had a nice variety and the food was good, but there was nothing I would consider outstanding. But this is a character 'experience' and that's the draw. They did have several Madagascar characters with opportunities to take pictures but at a cost of $100 for two adults and one child it is way over-priced. They take a picture of... More

Enjoyed a wonderful Christmas buffer here on Christmas afternoon. Great choice of food and friendly service! Also had breakfast buffet and 2 other meals here while staying at the Gaylord National and enjoyed them all.

This is a buffet restaurant, and we were here for breakfast. For what we paid, it was OK, but not great. Nothing really unusual or particularly noteworthy. Selection was OK (but definitely could have been better/higher-end), food quality was fine, but nothing to make you want to come back. At least it was quick.
