Nice stop for lunch while touring the beautiful Longwood Gardens. Outdoor dining is always a plus. The wait for Ice Cream at the Terrace Café was ridiculously too long, but the weekend weather was surprisingly warm and beautiful over the Orchid Festival, so I suspect they were unprepared with staffing.

This is our third trip to 1906. Always pleased with the service, atmosphere and food. I am impressed most with the focus on locally grown and organic ingredients. Everything is professionally plated The mushroom soup a must.

Very very slow service. The food is mediocre at expensive prices. The staff is busy, they do not have time for good service. I would make other arrangements, eat in the cafe or in the area.

It was an overall good meal. It was our first visit to Longwood Gardens and we made reservations for lunch. It was pricey as mentioned but the mushroom soup was incredible, our waitress very nice and helpful. We will definitely come back on our next visit to Longwood Gardens.

Great and sophisticated food. Their flower pot is a desert I would recommend to everyone. The only negative thing is that they put us in a corner behind a wall. Apart from this, the overall experience was amazing.

Came week after Christmas for lunch and brought friends because I had such a great experience in autumn. But this time it was not as good. One out of three meals was great. The other two missed the mark. Salad has chestnuts that were so hard I was afraid of breaking a tooth. Risotto had ingredients that just didn't work... More

Ordered pizza looked extremely small for average size and simple plain pizza too but didn't think it would cost about $15 with tax? Lots of black griddy stuff bottom of the pizza fell like chewing on sand at time want to spit it out? Plus ordered some other small combinations total cost about $50 thought it should be about $28...
