    Very welcome retreat out of the hustle and bustle - mushroom soup, salmon and cheeseboard were al excellent. Drinks are pricey …and the only thing that could have been better was the coffee which was not very hot..but other than that- great service and nice night !

    My wife and I went to Longwood Gardens to celebrate our 46th Anniversary and decided to eat lunch at 1906. We did make a reservation the day prior to our visit. Our waitress was outstanding. She explained the menu very well for our first time visit. The bread to start the meal was very good and presented in a flower pot as if it was cooked in that pot. My wife ordered the Filet Mignon with fries and broccolini. My wife likes her steak well done and the kitchen managed to cook it well done while still maintaining a tender piece of meat. The Demi-glace that accompanied the steak was excellent. The fries were good and the broccolini cooked to perfection. The price was very expensive but worth it for our anniversary. I started with the Kenneth Square Mushroom soup. The soup was excellent with plenty of mushrooms in an excellent broth. I chose the Jail Island Salmon with coconut jasmine rice, peach salsa, avocado. The salmon was a bit underdone, the ends cooked to perfection but the middle somewhat raw. The rice was moist and the salsa that accompanied it was very good. The avocado was a schmere on the plate. We opted to share the Chocolate Cherry Flower Pot which consists of a flower pot made from buttercream frosting and inside was chocolate cake, chocolate ganache, cherry jam, cherry mousse, vanilla ice cream topped with edible flowers. We both enjoyed this dessert although I would have liked more of the Cherry Jam in the dessert. I tried one of the flowers but probably would not have that again. An excellent place but expensive.

    What makes 1906 a very special restaurant is it's staff especially the waitresses and servers. Our waitress Natalie is simply the best! We have eaten here for years and we seek out Natalie because of compassion and excellence in all that she does to make our experience outstanding!

    The best pet of the dining experience was the people. From the host who assured us we could work something out even though my husband had left his wallet at home to the lovely waitress and her helpers we felt well liked and cared for. Whoever trains thee people should take bow. I must snit it has been while since I dined in 1906 and I definitely missed the white tablecloths. The food was delicious.

    The early summer menu was absolutely delicious. I’d recommend the buratta caprese appetizer. For an entree, go for the salmon or the lobster with saffron risotto. I would be remiss if I didn’t recommend the white lotus cocktail, which was the perfect drink to kick off the evening. Another wonderful meal at 1906. Thank you!

    It is always a pleasure to return to 1906 at Longwood Gardens. The service as well as the food and environment are all top-notch and I have yet to be disappointed after having a meal there. The salads are wonderful the flower pot bread and fresh butter are divine and the main courses are always very unique and thought out. Definitely worth it you will not be disappointed.

    Nice Restaurant strange menu. Ratatouille was very small portion to share. My sister was not crazy over no sauce on salmon. my pork and grits nice portion was ok. Purple royal sangria interesting with gin and no visible fruit was ok.strawberry dessert was good and strange. One in life time visit. Not what we expected for fancy restaurants. The bread was cute and delicious.

    Great quality food, relaxed ambiance. Service was a it slow but I actually like that, some people in my party would have like the staff to be more prompt with water refills for example. It's not as fancy or upscale as you'd think. Outdoor seatings is better than indoor in my opinion.
