There were a couple of options for breakfast...one was full brunch - which is what we had. Everything was good and hot. There was plenty of variety. Very enjoyable meal in an enjoyable setting.

Food quality was excellent, service excellent, clean, nice view and all first class. The only down side was that I thought it was a little pricey at $22 for the lunch buffet. Then again, everything in D.C. seems a little expensive to me.

The buffet is small and choices limited. But place is clean and server very attentive. It's under $10 for kids under age 12 and $18 or so for adults. So price not bad at all. Good enough for a simple dinner. Wish there are ice cream, pasta and rice, and at least two choices of soups, basic for any buffet... More

We were guests at The Gaylord National Resort and not knowing what sort of crowds we might encounter on Thanksgiving Day, I made an advance reservation for my husband and myself for breakfast at Pienza which is located in the Atrium of the hotel. I looked at their menu in advance, so I was prepared for the price, which is... More

Went there for a special holiday dinner. Here's the bad & the good: Bad: *mashed potatoes were so over-processed they were gluey (really!) *cranberry sauce had [*literally*] no sugar - I had to pour a packet of sugar into my serving *stuffing/dressing was basically tasteless, it had too much liquid and was too salty *gravy was pure salt *OJ.?... tasted...

This is the best buffet selection that I have ever had. Everything I was hoping for was there and done well. The potatoes were the highlight. You won't regret a stop here for breakfast or lunch.

Visited for breakfast meeting. A lot of options for breakfast, very good service and the restaurant had a nice set-up- the tables weren't too close, so we could conduct business while having a nice meal.

Omelet Station and other food selection very good. Different levels for you to choose but expect to pay $20 or more for breakfast.

Service was great, food quality, besides the fresh made omelet (very good) was fair. What got me was the price and how food was,ordered. Basically it was 3 levels of buffet. Each had a separate price or you could mix and match. Problem is I tend to have a small bowl of fruit with breakfast and definitely no worth the... More
