We have been coming to 1906 for our birthday and anniversary celebrations for the past 5 years. It is always a wonderful experience. The atmosphere and staff make it an enjoyable experience, not to mention the tour of the conservatory and grounds. Cannot wait until 1906 is back open in the new year.

If you are looking for a special occasion in the west chester/chadds ford area, you must consider 1906. My girlfriend and I went to see the Christmas lights at Longwood and then had dinner there. The ambience was perfect- light Christmas music (classy piano version), nicely spaced tables, beautiful serving dishes and arrangements. The food was so memorable as well. My favorite was the sweet potato cappuccino, which is actually a soup, and the 8oz filet mignon. Cooked perfectly! Amazing flavor. Our waitress was attentive and lively. What a great experience!

The perfect time to take a break from walking around the conservatory and gardens. Loved the quiet, relaxed atmosphere. The food was delicious. A great place to rejuvenate before heading out to view more of the gardens.

Enjoyed a lovely birthday dinner on the last evening of indoor dining. Although I understand changing the menu to prix fixe for the holiday, I wish there was another option for the main meal. Otherwise, the evening was phenomenal. Natalie was our server and she was genuine, personable, spent time going over the wine and options. It was a very relaxed and pleasant evening. I hope you reopen soon!!

We were at 1906 Dec. 11th the day before indoor dining shut down. We had the sweet potato cappuccino appetizer (outrageous), the filet mignon done perfectly. Creme brulee for dessert. Service excellent as always. Love it here!!

We had a wonderful time at 1906 at Longwood. The host was so pleasant and accommodating. We had a slight wait to which the host gave us complimentary drink.
We were taken to our immaculate table with a bag for our mask, flower tied on our napkin and a waiter to great us. We told the waiter we wanted to visit so not to rush us and he didn't. We started off with soup - delicious. Then we had our meal - I had salmon - awesome. Then dessert - creme brulee. Our waiter took very good care of us and was fun to be around. Would I come back again? Absolutely.

Great place to eat for special occasions while at Longwood Gardens. The food and service were excellent, This was not a family style restaurant as they did not have a children's menu. It is a quiet, fine dinning experience, a little costly, but worth it.

The dining room was decorated in very country taste. Our reservation was on time with no wait. The food was exceptional starting with a bun served in a flower pot with very nice butter. My soup was the mushroom and it was served hot. I had the filet, which was cooked medium as I ordered. Dessert was good as was the cappuccino. We left with a small box of chocolates. A very nice meal served exceptionally.

We had prepaid for the three course lunch prior to our visit. Price included tax and gratuity. The selections for each course were excellent and we were exceptionally pleased with what we selected from the menu. Our server, John, was attentive, but not at all overbearing. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch!

My husband and I wanted to get away but still stay in Pennsylvania during Covid. The precautions that the staff took made us feel safe during COVID. We were able to eat outside with ventilation, six feet apart and still dine with delicious and seasonal flair. Our waitress was delicious! We highly recommend it to others!

We’ve tried to get a reservation at 1906 every time for 4 years or more that we’ve been to Longwood Gardens and could never get one! We finally landed a reservation, probably due to the pandemic limit and pre-pay requirement but we had a great meal and fabulous service! We hope to be back again and hope it’s not so hard to get another reservation! I guess that’s a sign of a popular place though!!!

I am so impressed with 1906. This was the first time my family dined out since COVID and it was such a great experience!!! Thank you for taking the necessary precautions and keeping us safe. The tables were spaced out 6 feet or more and everyone wore their masks appropriately. Thank you so much!! Stay safe!
