    We visit Saratoga every August and are always on the lookout for restaurants we haven't tried. This was our first time at Longfellow's and it was outstanding! Best French onion soup we've ever had, and my husband's Delmonico steak was perfectly prepared and reasonably priced. I had the coconut scallops, also delicious. Lovely atmosphere in the wine cellar, attentive staff - we will definitely visit again next year.

    We went there for the shrimp scampi & we were told they removed it from the menu last week to add chicken wings!! Horrible choice on their part. They also didn't have the honey butter for the rolls, they swithched to regular plain butter BLAH! I also ordered a mango martini & was told they couldn't make it for some odd reason. Overall, the waitor was great & food was good but we're def. dissapointed with the changes.

    Enjoyed the resturant very much. Had the scallop appetizer and the mango salsa was outstanding! The prime rib was very good but not the best I've had. Would've like more crust on it. My wife had the filet dish and found it a touch to spicy but I thought it was delicious. She thinks cinnamon is spicy though. Our server was friendly and very knowledgable. If you're looking for a good meal in an intimate, warm setting where you can talk and laugh then I definitely recommend Longfellow's. You won't be disappointed. Our meal with one appetizer, a drink and no desert was about $85 which I thought was on target. I will be taking my wife out to dinner there more.

    Dined on 7/29/2014
    My wife & I went to Longfellows on July 29th to celebrate our anniversary, as we have done several times in the past. My dinner was very good, but my wife's dinner was not. We were disappointed with the menu selections for her. There was only one chicken selection, a fried chicken & waffle. No pork chops. She's not a big seafood eater, other than shrimp. She ordered a shrimp w/ alfredo sauce. What came out had blackened shrimp with a very spicy sauce & hot sausage. She is not big on spicy food and could not eat it. We told our waiter of our concerns about the menu, and later about how she couldn't eat the meal, asking about the description of the dish on the menu, thinking maybe we misread it. We didn't. Management never came to address it

    We have come to Saratoga for over 25 years and Longfellows is one of the few restaurants that we go to at least every other year. The food and the service is always really good but we are also always looking to try something new within 15 miles of our hotel. We love the menu changes and Longfellows is always the go to if I can't find another restaurant with a menu almost equal to theirs. Just being honest.

    This is our "go-to" place. Bringing out of town guests here is a must. Our son's wedding reception was in the big room. Our daughter's wedding was catered by you at the Batcheller Mansion. Both were perfect, food, selection, staff, working out details EVERYTHING is first rate. All the time! Love the food selections, the specials, the chef is amazing, the ease of reservations, the ambiance ( we were in the wine cellar this time.) I am always proud to show off Saratoga by taking friends and family to Longfellows. (Olde Bryan Inn the same)

    I went with my parents and my adult son because parents received a gift certificate from friends. The best thing I can say is the rolls were yummy. 3 out of 4 of us were not happy with our food; my prime rib was promised rare, came out medium well, mom's salmon was dry and unappetizing, me son's burger was also dry and over cooked. Service was exceptionally SLOW!! Waiter mixed up drink orders, did not clear plates stacked at the edge of the table, water glasses remained empty for 20 minutes, etc. The kicker to the service issue is that we were there early in the evening and there were not that many people. Prices are high on food that is not that good. Manager stopped in early, before issues became apparent. Will not return!!

    Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Noise level was loud and excessive. When you are spending this type of money for a meal you should not have to tolerate loud boisterous party of 8. The host and/or the wait staff should have moved this party to a more secluded area of the restaurant.

    We go here frequently, and have recently had them cater a large offsite event where everything was perfect. But on this night service was slow, my wife's meal was cold, and I had to get up and look for our server twice during our meal (for water refills). I know this is not normal, but it was disappointing.
