Way Too Pricey for the Quality of Food

Located in the Gaylord National Harbor, you will be surrounded by beauty. Be prepared to pay $50 for a buffet breakfast for two. In my opinion, the breakfast was average and way overpriced. It was nice to have a made to order omelet, but I just cannot justify the cost of it. The tables were a... read more

Best omelet I have had in a long time. The choice of ingredients was large and the choices to add to the dish were bountiful.

There were only 3 options for breakfast and all were overpriced buffets with not enough selection. The food was fine but not great for the price.

I seldom leave a bad review, and I don't think I've ever written one from the table. I am staying at the hotel for a conference, came here for breakfast on the last day. The host walks you through the stations (continental, eggs & waffles, omelet bar) and then shows you the menu and asks you to pick one. I... More

I had the breakfast buffet for 2 of the 3 mornings I stayed at the hotel. For the price, there could have been more variety of items, although what they had was good.

WOW! Their breakfast buffet and Lunch buffet is excellent and offer a decent spread for a average sized check. The seating is great, the staff pays extra individual attention to each guest and the food is good. Never a complaint and we visit here at least once every year!

We had the breakfast buffet on a Sunday. We arrived around 11:00 and missed the Sunday brunch which we were very excited about. Prices are double on Sunday brunch. They have 3 pricing options, Continental $18, Omelet Station $18, or the Regular Buffet (which includes all 3 stations) $25. Kids were $9 no matter what they ate. I'm confused on... More

This is an average breakfast place that is extremely over priced. The service is great, nice atrium, you are getting sunlight (if not raining) without being exposed to bugs and extreme temperatures.

My son and I stopped in for a quick pizza and salad lunch. The food was so good, and the staff so kind, that we ate at Pienza for the following two days at breakfast. Pienza Marketplace serves amazing buffets with delicious food and attentive and friendly staff. My only complaint--Pienza Marketplace is not open for dinner. We would have... More
