Over priced over fancy food. Only odd selections available.

We've been to 1906 several times before, and I anticipate we'll be back several more times! It's an outstanding restaurant. Naturally, it helps economically if you are members of Longwood, which we have been for many years.

For our annual get together with friends, this venue is perfect! We were able to see the Longwood Christmas lights and the conservatories before escaping the cold, into this warm and friendly dining room. The menu is always innovative and it is worth trying their interesting pre-dinner cocktails. we had the hot toddy and the winter sangria. Our appetizers and entrees were delicious, if(we felt) rather on the small size for portions for the prices. Particularly, we enjoyed the leek and mushroom gratin and the two soups-butternut squash and mushroom. The duck entree was one of the best duck recipes we have had, with the fat nicely rendered and the skin crisp and crackly. Our server, was attentive and chatty which we appreciated at this obviously busy time. We loved the complimentary peppermint chocolate bark presented with our coffees, at the end of the meal, making it the perfect finish to a lovely evening! It might might be worth Longwood Gardens to offer a discount on the entry tickets if you have a reservation at this high -end restaurant to encourage more people to dine here-as it is an expensive evening with the entry tickets as well, even with our (one) member discount.

Fantastic from start to finish. The drinks were suburb, the dinners were fresh and just the right size and our server was friendly and funny. Enjoyed every moment. We’ve been here before and we will be back!

The restaurant is very nice - a formal ambiance without having a dress code. The food was delicious, but the dessert blew me away. It was a apple cheesecake mousse, in a red sugar mold in the shape of an apple! It was fantastic! Someone else had a flower pot chocolate cake (I think) with a flower pot, dirt, and flowers that were all edible! It is a little expensive, but the food and ambiance were worth it.

It was nice food was good nothing exceptional. Seating was crappy for the price I wouldn’t have expected to be cramped at a too small table brushing elbows w the diners beside me.

The lobster was chewy and rubbery and tasteless. The salad bitter. The kale in one of the meals was undercooked and bitter. The dishes were sparse and overpriced.
It was a huge disappointment.

The casual elegance and outstanding cuisine were perfect for our anniversary date night! The outside tented patio was toasty warm on a frigid evening, and we enjoyed seeing the Christmas lights glimmer through the tent windows. It was a magical setting and we felt free to linger for the evening. Our food was cooked to perfection, exquisitely presented, and portions were perfect. We will definitely be back!
