    We were there for Sunday brunch. Although the omelet station was perfect....the other selections were all meat based. For someone who prefers not to eat meat (I'm not a vegetarian since I obviously ate the eggs), there was not much of a selection beyond the fruit, yogurt and pastries. Would be nice if the buffet offered more non-meat options.

    Went there for Christmas brunch buffet. They had an excellent selection of breakfast and lunch items, including an omelette/waffle station, and an extravagant salad bar. Coffee and juice were included, but there were no desserts, which was fine by me - I had no room for those anyway! Excellent value - I highly recommend.

    We’ve had the Riverside Hearth brunch 50+’times over the last 15 years. A family member lives next door so we always stay at Landsdowne. The service is perfect but only having a buffet is inconvenient because some members of our family only eat a very light breakfast and others have food allergies and are thus limited to what they can eat from the buffet. So it’s not a good value for us. The food that is available is good.

    Our group of 7 thoroughly enjoyed our holiday meal at Lansdowne! Excellent variety of food and everything was cooked and presented to perfection. Tables were spaced far apart which was nice as far as noise & crowding but also with Covid in mind. We plan to go again in 2022! 😀🦃🏆

    I was hoping the food would be better and that I’d want to come back again. The food is average and the selection was more lunch than brunch. You need more seafood. More desserts. Shorter line for eggs, omelets and pancakes. Our server was very nice and helpful. Too expensive for the food that was available.

    We went to the Christmas buffet last year and you can't even compare this year to it. There was less food and the quality went down. To begin with, there were no holiday decorations coming down the long hall to check in for the buffet. Absolutely nothing conveyed the holidays. I believe last year there were 3 Christmas trees . Between all of us at the table, we tried several of the breads and all of them were dry and cold, as if they recently came out of the refrigerator. The prime rib was fair. The service was so slow picking up the plates, we had several stacked up on the corner of the table. There was a gentleman that played holiday music on an electronic piano keyboard. He was mediocre and dressed casually. The desserts were dry, except for one that had chocolate mousse. I was embarrassed taking my mother to celebrate Christmas at Riverside Hearth.

    Dinner was a buffet for $50+ and the meal consisted of hot dogs, well done burgers, cold friend chicken and a few other things. You have to go get you own drinks out in the hallway. Hard to get any service at all. Been there numerous times with a much better experience. Hard to believe this is a still considered a first-class hotel.

    We went for a father’s day brunch. We ordered bottomless mimosas but the waiter never came back to give us another one until we paid the check. Many things were empty on the brunch and the omelet and waffle bar only had one person working so wasn’t worth the wait. We may try it again when it’s not so busy. I think they were just not prepared for a crowd.

    We went for Brunch on Father’s Day. There were no table clothes on the table which added to the noise level. You could not hold a conversation with your table mates. The service was very poor. Not enough staff for the crowd or the brunch stations. Very disappointing. Will not go back.

    My wife and I had our wedding reception at the Riverside Hearth in 2014 and haven’t been back since. Went for Mother’s Day brunch with my wife and mother in-law. We all had a wonderful time. The variety of food and desserts were great. Emily who was one of the managers checking in the parties was very accommodating and polite. Glad we went back.

    First of all we had to wait over30 minutes to get seated even though we had made the reservation in advance. Second my child missed the egg hunt due to hostess giving us the wrong information. She told us there another egg hunt at 3 pm when the last one was at 2 pm. She should of sent us down for the egg hunt while we were waiting. Food was okay. Nothing was outstanding. They tried to charge us for drinks we didn’t order

    While we had a good time and I would go again, I was disappointed and actually a little shocked at the buffet. First of all it has been years since I've been there. The buffet was less expensive but definitely a lot less food selection than when I was there before. We arrived about 1pm and there were only a few other guests dining. Which made me wonder about it... We have a member of our party who cannot do stairs. It took awhile to find the right elevator to get us there. We ended up coming in on the far side of the restaurant and had to walk across the restaurant. There was no one at the podium but someone came up pretty quickly, We had our choice of table and got started right away. The omelet/waffle station was great! Delicious and nice staff. While our server was good I also had to go find him a couple times, but only because it was so dead in there that he would walk around... There were several people standing around with nothing to do. Not a good thing. They should have been refreshing the food, or at least stirring it. Things has coagulated from no one touching it. Had to scrape off the "skin" that had developed on the gravy. Had to cut our own meat at the carving station with very greasy utensils. Someone showed up as we finished. The food was good but the appearance was a bit unappetizing with the "skin" on so many dishes. I would have enjoyed a bigger salad selection. Desserts were ok but I expected better from Lansdowne. I'm sure part of the problem is the lack of business, and perhaps the late hour as I usually go to brunch before noon. But still. It should look fresh from start to finish. I paid the same money that the 11am people paid. I really felt sorry for the staff though. Maybe they should change the hours on the buffet and switch to a la carte or figure out a way to get more business in. I do REALLY appreciate that the bottomless mimosas were extra. We don't drink, it's frustrating to pay for drinks at buffets that don't split out the cost.

    We were disappointed in our first visit. The place was not busy. The choice of food in the buffet is limited. The food seemed to have been on the line for a while because there was some discoloration and some crusting have formed. The roast beef was cold and the food on chafing dishes were getting over cooked. Our server was nice, but doubted us when we told him that my daughter was only 12. I have to show her ID so we can prove it. We didn't have any problem with paying the full price, but we didn't expect the reaction when we told our server that she's 12 years old. For the price it charges and the selections it offers, it's not worth it. The view outside was nice. We drove all the way from Lorton just to try if this will be a new place we can go to during our day off. We all agreed it's not worth it. Good try though. 😕

    We thoroughly enjoyed going to Riverside Hearth for Thanksgiving brunch. My parents-in-law came to this country for the very first time last spring and this was their first-ever Thanksgiving in America. Besides our young son, we were accompanied by my wife's cousin and her husband who are newlyweds and making their first trip to Lansdowne. The selection of foods and spread out arrangement of the food stations was inspired. My family is Asian and was impressed by the Dim Sum choices at the buffet. Our son initially opted for the breakfast choices and for my wife's parents having sausage was like having (in appearance) longganisa, which is Philippine sausage. They were quite amazed when they got up to select the seafood choices and were quite enchanted overall by the surrounding. I was able to point out Sugarloaf Mountain in Maryland in the distance from the dining room where we've climbed before. This was an excellent choice for the day and occasion and I would heartily recommend it.

    Couldn't see the limited view for the drapes even though we were sitting at a window table; only one ramp in entire dining area for handicap access; the only tables on the same level as the food were for large groups only; staff were unaware of location of elevator; the only elevator found was a freight elevator, unmarked on either level so I think it was not supposed to be for guests; wait staff were pleasant, attentive and very helpful - the only bright spot in our experience; brunch food was standard fare, no signature dishes and not kept cold/hot very effectively (in the 20 seconds it took to return to my table, the prime rib was already cold); the whole resort was terribly understaffed, including the restaurant.

    We had reservations and the restaurant was not crowded but we had to wait almost 10 minutes while they cleaned of a table for us to sit at. After we sat down, we waited another 10 minutes before our waiter came to take our drink order. It kind of made for a sub par experience. I expected more from the service. The food was good.

    Way over priced brunch buffet. Waiter service was non existent. Took forever to order juice and coffee. When spending this much you expect a better level of service. Ordered a mimosa to find that it was an extra charge on top of the $36 per person brunch. When bill came an 18% gratuity was already added. I did not want to leave any tip I would never pay to eat that way over priced brunch with no service.

    Went there for brunch and the quality did not match the price point. The price was too expensive for the quality of food. Eggs were made from powder, mac n cheese was bland and a step less than Kraft. Meats were tender but bland. I've had better food at golden Corral . The smoked salmon, waffles and mashed potatoes were great. Staff was exceptional and polite. I will continue to go to founding farmers if I'm going to drive out of my way for a good brunch.
