    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.

    The food, service and ambiance are always lovely here, but we found the extra gestures made to wish us a happy anniversary extremely thoughtful, especially the anniversary card signed by all the staff. We truly appreciated this small gift and everyone’s good wishes. It was a very nice experience (and a delicious one.)

    The 1906 is an excellent restaurant. Our server was friendly and proficient. The food was excellent. We were a party of three and we were all pleased with our meals and our service. The fried oysters that came with the chicken salad were particularly delicious. The zucchini ratatouille was wonderful. We will definitely return.

    We were seated at 6'40 and did not get our entree until 7:50 and then only after speaking with the maitre'd. The service, at least at our table was so slow. The server process required the server to bring silverware for each course individually requiring multiple visits to the table..it may be stylish but when the restaurant is busy this process takes up a lot of server time. At the end the maitre'd did absorb the check and apologize to save the evening. We appreciated the gesture.

    Overall very disappointing compared to the past. The absence of carpeting and tablecloths was disappointing and created too much noise. The menu was much too limited and not understandable - we needed to ask many questions for explanation. Some food dishes were very poor.

    The mushroom soup is delicious, of course. We always look forward to it and the tasty and whimsical brioche. The striped bass was flavorful and perfectly cooked. The strawberry dessert was an exquisite ending, a delight for the eyes, nose, and taste buds.

    We were seated on time and then waited fifteen minutes for a server to greet our table. We quickly ordered our entrees and beverages and then waited at least 50 minutes for the food to arrive. The beverages arrived after ten minutes which was appreciated. I understand there are staffing issues and felt badly for our server. She could not keep up with all of her tables. The food was very good but the poor service affected our experience. After so much time sitting/waiting, we were anxious to get our bill and leave rather than take the chance to order dessert. I would recommend the restaurant off season.

    On 6/09/22:we celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary at Longwood Gardens and ate at the 1906 restaurant. The weather was beautiful so we ate outside. Our server, Ryan was very friendly and informative and the service was excellent. The food was fabulous and the prices were worth the portion sizes and quality of the food. I highly recommend the mushroom soup and striped bass We will come back again. We were even given a anniversary card signed by all the staff. So sweet and kind!!
