I have been here many times for dinner over the last 15 years. My in-laws live in town and we visit every year. What I like about Longfellows is the experience. The food and service are always good. It is well maintained and management and crew haven't missed a step over the years. Cheerful, rustic place where you can wear... More

We had a reservation and were very promptly seated. This is a cozy, rustic atmosphere with a very nice menu. Our server was Andy and he was very pleasant, helpful and professional, someone who enjoys what he is doing. We ordered Ahi Tuna, Shrimp Scampi, Fish Fry and Ribs. Presentation of the food was very nice and everyone enjoyed their... More

Went here last week after going to the track. Was not expecting something great by the outside of the building but was pleasantly surprised. The food and service are great. We started with the fried pepper calamari served with jalepenos which may have been the best calamari we have ever tried. My wife had the shrimp scampi that would rival... More

July 25, three wonderful meals in a great setting. The filet with bacon/cheese/onion and mashed potatoes was outstanding, and another meal of ahi tuna was sushi grade and a lot of tuna. Had a free birthday dessert and the Rodney Strong house cabernet was very good. Classic place with wonderful food and a super nice waiter.

We were preparing for an enjoyable night at the ballet in the Saratoga Performing Arts Center and decided to have dinner beforehand. Having heard good things about Longfellows, we decided to give them a try. What a good decision! The restaurant is very unique inside, with multiple levels that have an open feel to them. We dined on the second... More

A rustic atmosphere with great service. Nick, our server was very friendly and made the dining experience better. We stayed at the hotel and opted for the romantic package, so the dinner was included. The prices seemed a little on the high side but since the full menu was available to us, it turned out to be a good deal.... More

I started with a Cesare salad. Asked if I wanted anchovies, I said yes, yet when it came it had none on it. It wasn't the best Cesare salad. My wife and I each ordered grilled swordfish with lobster risotto. The risotto was very good, but the swordfish was very overlooked and dry. We didn't order dessert. Rolls were average... More

Excellent meal from our wine and Bruchetta appetizer to the Bananas Foster Cheesecake and coffee. My husband and I both enjoyed our meals very much. I would like to compliment the management for offering vegetarian options on their menu. I was delighted to have choices! Service was friendly and efficient.

My wife and I came here for a long weekend and had dinner here. The service was great and the food was fantastic. I couldn't even eat the dessert. (That has never been a problem for me).

Since Longfellow's is one of the local restaurants open on Mondays at 4 pm we have dined in the Tavern on several Mondays recently... Service is excellent, atmosphere is informal and charming... Food and portion size is super (we always need a to go box)... Menu is varied and they have an egg plant dish we are especially fond of...... More
