My husband and I dined here for the first time this year. We had read reviews on Tripadvisor and thought it might be worth a try. The restaurant itself is very interesting. We took a little walk around it after dinner. There are a number of split levels with seating tucked into cozy niches and some in large open spaces. Lots of interesting nooks and crannies, an indoor waterfall and coy pond with a little bridge.
The staff is very friendly. Our server was very helpful with information and suggestions. She came to check on us after each course was served. I even noticed her bringing a wine sample to the gentleman at the next table so he could decide if he wanted to order that particular wine for dinner.
The food was terrific. I had the 3 course special for $20: the best onion soup I ever tasted--it had 3 cheeses melted over it and 2 kinds of dark bread in the soup itself. Great flavor. My prime rib was huge and the garlic mashed potatoes were great. Apple cobbler for dessert with apples that thankfully had not been overcooked into the mush that you sometimes get. My husband had haddock stuffed with shrimp and scallops in a lobster sauce and he loved it.
We will definitely be making this a regular stop when we come up for racing season in the future!

More often than not we go to Longfellows on our date nights. It's a nice atmosphere, reasonable prices, diverse menu, and usually pretty good food. It's our favorite local restaurant - we know we'll get a good meal here and the service is usually good. If you've never been it's definitely worth checking out.

My wife and I decided to go out to eat for our last night in saratoga. She went on line and look at all the reviews in the all the spots, and comment about Longfellows was excellent. We made our choice. When we arrived around 6:45pm, we quickly realized that everyone had the same idea. LOL... Anyway, we were seated in the wine cellar. It is a beautifully decorated room in the basement with fireplaces and low ceilings, pictures, and mirrows, lamps and candles all abound etc. Our sever Jennifer quickly came to our table as soon as we were seated and thanked us for dining with them and introduce herself. After she returned with our waters, and warm honey oak bread, she took our drink order, and then went on to say while she was retrieving our drinks, to take a look at our menus and she would be back to answer any questions we would have before making our choices for dinner. We quicky realized how busy it had become and how busy our server was, but we were so impressed that she took time too make us aware of all of our choices and give us the time necessary to answer or questions, to help us as she said "pease our palates". We ordered the calamari, shrimp cocktail, (as beautful as she described) for apps, Cajun rib, and filet wellington for our entrees. We were so stuffed, but forced ourself to finish our plates, since the food would have not traveled well for us. And was amazing. When we finished, she offered dessert, and coffee. We were stuffed but could not resist the dual creme brulee she describe. We orderd our desert and were please when she said, please take your time, don't rush enjoy your dessert, its one of a kind. We did enjoy everything. The service, the food and the atmosphere here is impeccable. Jennifer's smile only helped to make us feel at ease. And her not rushing us was worth a million dollars. Thank you Longfellows, we visit Saratoga 2xs a year, we will be back!
