It was an overall good meal. It was our first visit to Longwood Gardens and we made reservations for lunch. It was pricey as mentioned but the mushroom soup was incredible, our waitress very nice and helpful. We will definitely come back on our next visit to Longwood Gardens.

Great and sophisticated food. Their flower pot is a desert I would recommend to everyone. The only negative thing is that they put us in a corner behind a wall. Apart from this, the overall experience was amazing.

Came week after Christmas for lunch and brought friends because I had such a great experience in autumn. But this time it was not as good. One out of three meals was great. The other two missed the mark. Salad has chestnuts that were so hard I was afraid of breaking a tooth. Risotto had ingredients that just didn't work... More

Ordered pizza looked extremely small for average size and simple plain pizza too but didn't think it would cost about $15 with tax? Lots of black griddy stuff bottom of the pizza fell like chewing on sand at time want to spit it out? Plus ordered some other small combinations total cost about $50 thought it should be about $28...

We were seated in Patio Dining area which was much less formal than Indoor Dining Area. We liked the more informal atmosphere, and some of the lighted trees could be seen through the patio cover. We were right next to the heater which was a bit noisy. When it was turned off, the area cooled rapidly, so it needed to... More

The gardens and a meal here are always thought of as one experience...each is essential and we always look forward to both. It's especially nice during the holidays.

Having always wanted to try this place, we dined here Christmas Eve and were a little disappointed. The hostess gave us a cold reception and asked us to wait a few minutes and then seemed to forget about us. I had to speak to her a second time to be seated. That hurdle cleared, we did find the place a... More

Our fourth year touring Longwood Gardens at Christmas time, followed by lunch at 1906 as a special treat. This year it was very disappointing. We made reservations several weeks ahead as it gets very busy during the holiday season. Our party of four was seated in the tented patio area which was drafty and cool despite the space heaters. The... More

We were planning just to have a small lunch during our tour of Longwood Gardens when we saw the menu for 1906 sitting on a rail outside of the cafeteria. I read it, showed it to my companion, and asked her if she was game. Of course! The hostess was almost apologetic--she said she had open tables only on the... More
