Great Food

The food are all well prepared and tasty if rather over-priced. However so far as tourist attractions go it's not that bad. TRY the soup. You won't regret it

Sounds in a way aristocratic. I' m eating on the terrace. It's a cafeteria. You can get sandwiches and other stuff their. But like the other restaurant their, you have to pay the admission fee to access the gardens, and to eat their. If you don't want the full dinning experience , go to the terrace.

My mom and I stopped here first after arriving at Longwood Gardens to get some food before we started walking the gardens. It was busy for a Monday, but there was plenty of seating. The food is pretty good - I would describe it as a high end cafeteria. The dining rooms are also very clean and attractive. The only... More

Crowded on a Friday in May but still worth the food which is that of a very good upscale cafeteria and is discussed by others. My rating reflects the need to improve on the lack of signage identifying the different food lines (salads, entrees, soups, etc.) and the crowded conditions in manouvering between those serving lines. Pack your patience.

We only needed a quick, light lunch while touring the Longwood Gardens, and the Terrace Restaurant provided that for us. It was very busy, as expected, but it was fairly easy to make our choices for satisfying our hunger. Finding a place to sit was a bit difficult, but patience paid off as a table became available for four of... More

Excellent foods and wonderful out door veranda to enjoy the food or your choice to stay inside. A bit pricy in my opinion but then you can bring your own food and have lunch at the picnic area instead.

A nice easy walk for refreshments and light fare after a most excellent stroll through the conservatory. It will not disappoint and a great place to discuss you experience at Longwood Gardens while still fresh on your mind.

My family loves to visit Longwood Gardens at different times of the year, and we never hesitate to stop at the Terrace Restaurant for a bite to eat. But you need to understand that it is a cafeteria, albeit a nice one. They offer some variety -- from soup or salad to sandwiches to hot entrees. The mushroom soup is... More
