Love taking a romantic weekend break here. We have escaped to Longfellows a couple of times. This time was, as usual, lovely, however, when booking the romantic weekend book a king executive suite. Spend the little bit extra to be on the bottom floor where you have a sliding glass door to a little patio with adirondack chairs and a... More

Came here on a Sunday night for dinner, the food and the service were great and they give pretty large portions with their meals.

I've been coming to Longfellow's for a few years now whether it was with my boyfriend or family and friends we always have a great time. Food and service is always on point. It is also a great place to stay as well. I recommend this place to anyone.

Went to dinner with a group of twelve, we had reservations and were seat promptly.It was a large old building and we had to go up a lot of flights of stairs.

Had been there before on their "Romance Package" in the past! This time, dinner with family, table by ourselves, food excellent, our waiter "Todd" very accommodating. Well rounded menu. Table visited by two managers, asking how the experience was going. Will visit in the future for sure.

The restaurant is beautiful and well-run, but we had a few concerns that effected our experience. *The waiter was pushy, ordering two of an appetizer when we ordered one. He suggested two, we said "no, one". Ended up with two. *Bill was wrong. When our table's bill was divided, the waiter didn't ask who was paying for the apps in... More

I have dined at Longfellows numerous times, but this was my first New Years Eve experience. It was a wonderful time from start to finish. There were 5 of us women enjoying the experience, and enjoy it we did. The Shrimp Scampi appetizer was delicious. My friends ordered Prime Rib, Steaks and Filet Minion. I went off the grid and...

Longfellows is just a stones' throw from where we live. So, a quick jaunt over for their burger and drink special is a must! Huge burger with bacon, cheese, tomato and lettuce,fries and top it off with a draft beer or house wine for $13.00. Good conversation. Great food. Lovely old-world ambiance. Worth a trip even if you're not in... More

2nd visit here for dinner and because our first experience was amazing we tried again but what a disappointment. Other than the french onion and clam chowder soups which were outstanding, the rest of the visit was not the way to start the new year! The prime rib was cold and had to be sent back to be warmed up... More
