    Speciality drink was great. PORK CHOP was very well done instead of medium rare. One Lamb chop order was perfect medium rare and the other lamp chop. Order was well done instead of nedium rare.

    We were visiting Longwood Gardens to see the magnificent Christmas lights and wanted to dine there as well. We made a reservation at 1906, not realizing it was a prefix dinner menu that changes every few weeks. While our menu didn't include the mushroom soup I had hoped for, it was a nice menu and our main entree of lamb chops was excellent. Be prepared for $98 per person including appetizer, salad, entree and dessert. For a holiday outing at Longwood Gardens, we didn't object to the cost.

    An absolutely phenomenal priced fixed holiday dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, 1906. Each course was better than the next. But that dessert was simply so unusual and out of this world. Our server, Ashley was probably one of the nicest servers we have ever had. She was extremely attentive, but not to the point of hovering over somebody. She maintained the perfect balance. She made our dinner a very enjoyable & a very memorable one, so thank you, Ashley !!!

    Menu was bizarre and very limited. Entree choices were only lamb, bass, pork and mushrooms. No chicken or beef. Kitchen was willing to make a substitute for allergies but not basic dislike of these items which was disappointing for a $100/person menu. Service was painfully slow (we were there for 3 hours) and the server forgot to give us the last wine of the wine pairing we purchased.

    This was a fixed price menu. The parsnip soup was very good. The micro-green salad was bitter and tough. My partner ordered the crusted pork. I ordered medium rare lamb chops. Both came with a dimi-glaze and we both thought it detracted from the meat. My lamb came at room temperature. I asked that the plate be re-heated and received a new order that was lukewarm blunt much better. For desert, my partner ordered a flower pot cake and ice cream. He only took two bites then pushed it aside. I ordered the desert of the day, a Christmas ornament with crispy outside and two-flavored mousse inside. I give it an A for taste and an AAA for creativity.

    There were 4 of us in our party and we have had the great experience in dining in many great restaurants' yours' was among the best. We started with delicious cocktails and the cheese tray, followed by lamb for 3 of us and bass for the other. the food was cooked to perfection. The noise level was delightful, the restaurant was crowded, but the conversations of others didn't interfere with ours. Our main server and the other servers were delightful. I highly recommend the experience.

    My family visited from out of state to see all the Christmas lights and decor at Longwood Gardens. It was truly magical. Anytime we get the opportunity to visit we eat at 1906. The ambience is beautiful and the food does not disappoint either. We booked the Botanical Splendor Prix Fixe Dinner. The portions were the perfect size. It was fairly quiet when we ate and the restaurant was not overcrowded. Granted our reservations were at 5:15 PM. If you are looking to treat yourself to a nice sit down meal, you can not go wrong with 1906. Just make sure to book in advance especially for the holiday season.

    I understand why they do a price fixed menu at Christmas, however, a four course meal was actually too much for my wife and I. We are in our mid seventy's and don't eat like when we were younger. So we are essentially paying a lot of money for a quantity of food that we really couldn't finish. While i would hate to do it, my wife and I may just eat in the cafeteria next Christmas season and only get a quantity that we can eat without waisting and paying for too much food.

    Service was fantastic as it always is. I've eaten here many times ans the Prefix menu is getting old. Wish there were more options to chose from. Also the prices continue to rise and the portions keep getting smaller. The Prefix menu said Rack of Lamb, however I was only served two ribs. At $98/serving it the main course felt light even as an appetizer. Also the cheese board has shrank significantly. I really don't mind paying for a good meal but this felt like a very expensive snack. Again our server was great, she was attentive and knowledgeable and we tipped to reflect her good service

    We love visiting Longwood Gardens once a season. Christmas is our favorite way to kick off the Christmas season and we always dine at 1906. Every year it's delicious and wonderful in every way. This year our waiter was Michael whom we've had serve us before and were happy to see again. He made sure we were happy in every way and very well versed for any and all questions. It was a wonderful night! PS. Appreciated being asked if we were members so we got our little discount at dinner (every bit helps!). We've left there before forgetting to mention it.

    Check out the menu ahead of time and be sure to have a reservation. Don’t be in a rush. Ask staff for recommendations. You are in mushroom country so try a dish that features them ( if you like) . The “outdoor seating” is actually inside a marquee and quite pretty. Enjoy. Lunch before touring the gardens worked perfectly for us.
