You can't go wrong visiting this restaurant. The menu has something for everyone's taste. The cauliflower steak was awesome, the burger was cooked to perfection and the chicken salad sandwich was delicious. $25 per person is about what lunch would cost. The patio seating is spectacular, comfortable and well planned. The staff was very attentive and efficient. I would recommend... More

After securing a last minute reservation on Mother's Day, we found ourselves being seated at 10:00 AM for a brunch that included many more lunch inspirations than breakfast selections from which to choose. However, we both decided to go with the Belgian Waffle which was served with strawberries, rhubarbs and mint and a side or either bacon, sausage or ham.... More

Our family came here for lunch. Expecting high end from all the reviews. It's not. They have approximately seating for 50 crammed into a square room. Nothing sophisticated or romantic about it. Our bread service was "popovers"?????? I don't know what they were. They were the same shape as popovers, so I was excited when I saw them. Just bread... More

I had lunch at this little gem while visiting Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. The restaurant is on the grounds, across from the conservatory. I ate outside, as it was a beautiful day to do so. The service was great, and the food delectable. This area is known for it's mushrooms, and I had the mushroom soup and an... More

Great food, local beers and wines, small menu but very well prepared, great service fast and friendly. You will need reservations many weeks in advance. A must try.

We had a delicious lunch here while visiting Longwood Gardens. It is centrally located in the gardens and a perfect place (the only full service restaurant in the garden) to have lunch while visiting. I would recommend reservations because it was busy even mid week. The salad, omelette and mushroom soup were delicious. For dessert we ordered a "flower pot"... More

While we were at theLongwood Gardens we stopped to get something to eat at 1906! What an experience..we had Dustin as our server and he did and outstanding job.... The environment, food and service was world class.. Food is pricey but worth the cost... It's a must try while you are at the Gardens.....

Since I live 2 miles from Longwood Gardens it is always a great place to meet friends for a walk and lunch. On a recent visit, when it was quite crowded, I decided to eat at the restaurant, 1906 (as opposed to the cafeteria). Most of my comments are as a comparison to the other choice for dining at Longwood... More

My wife and I dined in the fine dining restaurant at Longwood Gardens for lunch recently and loved it. We had a rezzy (better make one as it gets very crowded) so we were seated promptly and were pleasantly greeted by our waitress Iva who was pleasant and professional. We enjoyed the wonderful Mushroom soup, tenderloin flatbread and chicken salad... More
