Longfellows Restaurant & Hotel
Our friend's birthday was coming up and we wanted to go someplace special. I made reservations through open table and everything I requested was in place when we got there. They seated us by the fireplace as I requested and made sure there was a birthday surprise. Longfellows is a great place - the food is wonderful and there is a variety of choices. There is a 3- course special that is very inexpensive and other specials to choose from. The service is attentive.
My family and I have been wanting to try this restaurant forever and we were not disappointed. We sat in front of one of the fires and it was so cozy. The service was great and the food was amazing.
They were busy; it was a Saturday night. That said, coat check service was non-existent. We couldn't get anyone to say more than "we'll be over there to help you in a minute," but they weren't. Preparation of food was also very slow. We waited a long time after ordering. Food was generally good once it arrived. Sort of plain, but good. Waitress was thoughtful and cheerful and efficient, which helped us overlook the slowness issue. I would go again -- the ambiance is great -- but just realize that it will take a while.
Busy restaurant, great employees!
Second recent with the food quality far exceeding any other restaurant that we visited during the same period. very personable and attentive service.
I can not believe I have not been to Longfellows before. We stayed at the Inn and had dinner there. The food was delicious and every person we came in contact with was wonderful!! I can not say enough what a wonderful weekend we had there.
Can’t wait to return. Awesome across the board.
My wife and I always love the atmosphere here!! We always come for special occasions and we are never disappointed.
Good meal with friends in a cozy alcove setting.
We entered the restaurant with a reservation only to be told by a very snarky hostess or woman at the front desk that "we would have to wait" when we asked how long the wait would be? She said, "as long as it takes to clear some tables. You can go up to the bar." In a very dismissive way. So... we go up to the bar passing 4 open "clear" tables only to wait in a long line. After about 15 minutes waiting for a drink we were called for our table that was one of the open tables we had passed. It was very noisy but fine for us. We enjoyed our meal but felt the chicken parm was extremely garlicky, salad was very basic, wings were borderline raw, we didn't eat them all, server forgot our soup. Lobster and filet was good but nothing special really. Our server Todd was working so hard and hustling many tables at once along with helping with drinks, and taking care of the fireplace. He was really busy but still a great waiter. I'm honestly, not one to complain in a review. Unfortunately, I felt like the whole night got off to a poor start from the time we walked in the door and it was so uncalled for and it really shocked me. A greeter should be politely greeting guests, we had the opposite experience.
Fabulous food and great waitress! This was our first time there and wont be our last :-)
As always it was a nice experience, our waitress Sarah was so nice and she got everything we ordered perfect! Compliments to the Chef for a tasty filet mignon and lobster tail feast! Yum, yum, yummy!
We went to celebrate my 30th birthday.. we had a party of 10 and the waitress handled it all amazing. She was attentive and quick. She was extremely friendly. The food was amazing as always. We were sat on the lower level in the corner and it was perfect. There was a wedding that night but you would never had known with how well the staff was handling everything.
Sarah & Jess were tag team champions as they worked together during our visit! Fantastic Experience, thank you!
Lovely restaurant. Excellent food. Excellent service.
Everything was great! Food and service was excellent!
We greatly enjoyed the rustic atmosphere. The staff was outstanding- a “shout out” to Lauren who made our night exceptional!! The prime rib was delicious and tender but the flavor fell short. Overall very satisfied. Thank you!
Why would you give an odd number of bread to table of two? You should do two or three per person. Tom was very nice and helpful however he did not read the specials to us. Overall great dining experience and We will be return.
Four of the five meals were spot on, but the special filet mignon stir fry was ordered medium and arrived at the table well done and cold. Waitress never stopped back by to check if everything was okay. Meal was very flavorful but expected it to be delivered as ordered and hot.
Keenan was polite & professional
Haven’t been to Longfellows in years and it did not disappoint.
The selections were excellent and served promptly.
Highly recommended for food quality & ambience
Had a great Birthday celebration. The waitstaff was outstanding and the food was served in a timely manner. Would definitely recommend Longfellows for your next dinner
Food was not paired well. Wait staff was inattentive and forgot my wine.
Always a wonderful dining experience! Fries were a bit freezer burnt though lol..
Great meal, great service the best staff. Thank you
Just love this restaurant on every level!!
Certain rooms at Longfellows have smoke in them when the fireplace is burning. It seems there should be some way to vent the fireplace and chimney properly so the smoke goes up instead of into the rooms.
Top 3 restaurants in the Saratoga area, highly recommended!!
Love the hotel. TV’s could use upgrades. The breakfast in the morning could use more variety. Otherwise clean and cozy. Friendly staff. Beautiful restaurant.
Good food but the prime rib wasn’t really that big , used to be a better portion , also remember getting a full portion of wings for appetizer, not anymore . The tower for 30 bucks should satisfy 6 , more like 2. Good appetizer’s and good food but portion sizes has dropped . Was my favorite restaurant for years but no comparison to the log Jam that is local . If I pay the price I want leftovers for later , I could of actually had more .
Our server Sara, was the BEST! Made the evening. Our party of 6 wound up being 4, handled seamlessly! From appetizers to entrees everyone was very pleased! Sara boxed up the remainder of my entree, dated the box and wrote the name of the contents on it. So efficient! Unfortunately, I forgot it☹️ Overall a 10+ evening! Thank you!

Myself and my wife went to longfellow's for her birthday on 12-16-2019 and let me start by saying that we had a GREAT time. The food was great and the staff are very friendly and polite. And OMG!! the waitress by the name of Lauren she is AWESOME. I will ask for her the next time we go there that's for sure. My wife is from down south and she loves her pecan pie so I made a request for it and they weren't sure if they had it but I tell you what they went out of there way to make sure she would get her pecan pie for her birthday. To all the staff at longfellow Restaurant THANK YOU SO MUCH SO A SPECIAL NIGHT and for Lauren THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING and if I was a restaurant owner you can work for me anytime I would hire you in a heart beat. I will recommend Longfellow's to anyone and if I can give you guy's a 10 star rating I would.
From Tania and Joe
Love the special nooks they have. Makes big restaurant small and intimate. Only issue was the smoke from downstairs fireplace. Excellent service.
Longfellows Restaurant is a top quality restaurant with excellent employees!!
We had a wonderful time. Our waiter was very attentive and took care of us perfectly. We had our son, his fiancé and her parents with us and everyone was happy. We recommend longfellows to everyone because we have been many times and have never had a bad experience. Try the filet wrapped in bacon skewers appetizers and everything we’ve ordered was delicious.
We always have a great time at Longfellows! This is always our top choice to go for anniversaries, birthdays, and special occasions.
Had a wonderful anniversary dinner with my husband. The food and service was amazing
Liana (sp?) was a terrific server !! Food and atmosphere always terrific.
