Don't like the menu change

I've been here several times, but not in the past year. The menu is much smaller since my last visit, and our party didn't like the change. The food was okay as was the service. The bathroom was dirty. I've never been here when it wasn't packed, but it wasn't, and it was a Friday night. With so... read more

We had won the "Romance Package" at a silent auction for Longfellows but never had the time to use it. We live nearby so finally decided to brighten up a gloomy January and redeem the certificate. The property is a converted dairy farm and it is on beautiful grounds, and has been done to perfection. Our King room was large... More

Longfellows is about an hour away from us, up the NYS Thruway in Saratoga. It was terrible driving, as there were multiple accidents on the drive up. As it happened, one bad one held up several reservations before ours, so we had to wait an additional 1/2 hour before we were seated. They had a small table with crackers and... More

A bit pricey but excellent service and ambiance. Food - Steaks and Prime Ribs were great. Upstairs has a bar and table seating and downstairs a bit more informal. Has the feeling of a top notch restaurant at a ski slope with the Christmas Lighting outside and snow on the ground

This was our third New Year's Eve dinner here and while the food was very good the service this night was terrible. We always expect to wait for our table even though I made my reservations months in advance, they seemed to really overbooked this year. We had an 8pm reservation and waited over an hr for our table.

Stopped in on a Saturday evening for a Kobe burger and beer (or wine, soda) for a very reasonable $12, at the bar only. Longfellow's has a warm, homey ambiance, and the restaurant, as usual, was doing a brisk business. the bar staff was friendly and courteous. We always enjoy a consistently good experience here.

WAAAAAY too loud! Wedding on the night we stayed. Inconsiderate, noisy neighbors. No sleep! Ugh! For the money, you could stay across town in a nice quiet hotel!

As a team, our employees met here for a celebration dinner. It was to die for. We had a three course meal that all the food was fresh and delicious! A bit pricy but well worth it

Our reservations were made 6 weeks in advance. We arrived at the Resturant @ 7:55 PM for an 8:00 PM reservation. The first words out of the young ladies mouth were " have a seat at the bar. It will be 20 minutes because we have eight 8:00 reservations". That kinda set the tone for the rest of the evening.... More
