Located in the hotel atrium, very beautiful setting. A tad expensive as expected. Buffett style. Two proceed buffets some confusion on which is which. I had the sandwich, soup & salad. Really good fresh food! The staff is friendly and the service is wonderful. Never had a 1/2 empty glass! Say Hi to Senedou! She is so sweet.

Nice selection of breakfast food. Quick in and out. Food was good, servers were nice. Loved the egg white frittata. Even my picky 10 year old found something to eat. A little pricey for breakfast.

Made reservations for brunch, and discovered the buffet was full of empty platters. So dissatisfied with kitchen. Our waitress was very attentive. However we will not come back!

We took our out-of-town guests here for a Saturday brunch, and I regret driving 40 minutes for the experience. Food: The selections are diverse, but nothing special or unique except for the exorbitant prices. A breakfast buffet with these selections offered in the crammed space with uncomfortable and basic seating arrangements should cost no more than $10 per person. Service:... More

Came in for breakfast buffet while staying here to see ICE. This was the Charlie Brown breakfast and had a great selection of breakfast items, all fresh and very good. The character breakfast area itself was not the big and they had Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and Lucy all walking around so there was tons of time for character interactions and... More

Seated quickly. Different options for buffet. We chose the full buffet which included the continental breakfast as well as hot food options. Service was average. Food was good but be prepared to pay hotel prices. Seating in the Atrium is nice. Servers will bring drinks and any condiments that you need.

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
