"For the "premier resort hotel" in National Harbor, and for the price you pay for these special brunches, you would expect everything to be above and beyond. However, the last two times I've taken my family for a special outing to do brunch at Pienza I'm left amazed at their lack of spit and polish, seen across so many issues. The maitre d' not being at his station as guests arrive, and not knowing how to greet guests properly, courteously, and with a smile, and perhaps wearing a better-fitting suit. The continual degradation in food quality and overall service provided, including wait staff which is not waiting (or waiting on too many tables to be effective), to short-order cooks who also need some "101 training" in providing service at an organization that pretends to be high-quality; they're not flipping burgers at McDonald's, folks, but that's the feel you get. Even the roving singers getting a bit sloppy and having loud conversations of who's on first, what's on second... In short, this all seems to point to poor management and leadership at the Pienza brunches, and for the price they charge, particularly for special dates (Easter, in this case), the draw that used to exist is now, for me, wholly gone, and I just don't see the need to return. It takes too long to drive there anyway, and I can get better quality at the same or lower cost at other places."

"The food this time was not up to the standards we have become accustomed to.
Not near the variety and what was available was bland or nearly tasteless.
We might try once more on the chance this was a one off fluke."

"No one can eat $60 worth of food at a buffet! That said the food selection at the Pienza Easter buffet was certainly sufficient, but worth a $35.00 price.
Oh, and no lamb chops or lamb shoulder to be seen on Easter. At these prices????
Go at your own risk.
But, the Bloody Mary was free. Were I not driving I might have had three or four to make up for the price."

"Attended a recent cheer competition and needed to stay in the hotel to eat. Price was reasonable 19.99 for adults 12.95 for kids.
Not what I expected of a buffet though. No real salad and there was a cold cut and bread section. The hot entrees were limited and they really only had pizza for the kids. Dessert was the only good part.
The wait staff was very attentive with refills and clearing dishes

"I realize that the Gaylord has a captive audience for the most part (made of convention-goers), but the price for the buffet breakfast was a little hard to swallow (pun intended). If we hadn't had a $100 credit due to the room type we booked, we'd have found somewhere else to get breakfast. It was, however, very good, if basic, breakfast food. The service, however, was completely top-notch. The servers were attentive, friendly, and really made eating there a pleasant experience."

"The service was excellent, and the Gaylord is a beautiful location. However, that they are serving (at approx $30/head) is equivalent to the breakfast buffet at most "regular" hotels. There was an omelette station, but the rest of the food was so-so. I wouldn't do that again."

"I made a reservation for the Sunday brunch and did not find out until I went to the restaurant that they no longer offered the brunch. Although their website still advertised the Sunday brunch. My reservation was for 11:00 a.m. and I was given the opportunity to stay and have breakfast which was over at 11:30 a.m. I was there to celebrate my friends birthday. We elected to stay but I was very disappointed in the food choices and felt rushed because the breakfast menu was over at 11:30. The price we paid for breakfast was outrageous for the amount of food that we were able to eat. I no longer will recommend Pienza to my family or friends."

"$18 continental breakfast, $25 full buffet. Average tasting food. No other options for breakfast except the expensive buffet."

"I have dined here multiple times and USED TO love it! This restaurant has really declined. The food is poor and the price is high. Although it is very convenient for dining in the hotel and the ambiance is lovely,I will NOT choose to dine here again. The quality of food and service is substandard."

"The Breakfast with Kris Kringle was very nice. the food was good, our table was ready. We did not have to wait. The characters were very good with the children and it was a wonderful exprerience. I would definitely do it again. Dinner the night before for the buffet was excellent too. Great Variety."

"I have had quite a few meals at the Pienza over the years and was disappointed in this trip. We went on Jan 1st and had dinner. The buffet definitely has less choices food wise and most of the choices had been sitting out for a while or were just empty. The server was horrible, it took 15 minutes for her to come to the table and get us drinks and then half way through the meal came back and asked if we needed refills but never returned to refill. I had to go find the manager to get a check after waiting 20-30 mins for her to come back to ask for the check. Another server got my check for me and I paid. I never did see our server again."

"My family of 13 chose Pienza Restaurant for dining prior to the Gaylord ICE event. Being Christmas week they only offered 2 kinds of salad bars, no ordering off the menu. Salad bar prices were very high for the sub par offerings. Beverages were not included in their pricey salad bars. 18% tip was pre-figured in the bill, even though the majority of us decided to only have tap water and being a salad bar, got our own food."

"Service and quality of food was very good. Extremely overpriced for breakfast....continental was $17. It would have been nice if they offered an alternative menu for those who don't want to eat a large breakfast."

"The Christmas buffet was $59 per person, so my wife and I had very high expectations for a romantic dimly lit dining experience (you know somewhat like what you see in the movies). When we got there, we found out that this was not the case and we were seated in an area that resembled the seating outside a neighborhood cafe. It was somewhat cramped. The seafood was terrible, and there were only a few other choices that were marginal to good. Plus the alcoholic drink were an extra charge! Seriously, for the price, at least a mimosa should have been included.
On the plus side, there was a small group performing Christmas songs on an electric guitar, violin, and bass.
Getting out of the parking garage was horrendous as they had only one attendant taking tickets until I told a manager. There was no mention of a parking voucher for dining there, so I'm glad I asked as it saved us $14 for 2 hours of parking.
We won't be going back to this buffet, and I don't recommend it for others. Too pricey for what you get."
