The two-level contemporary glass structure nestled next to Gardenhouse in the heart of the Garden, offers full-service dining, a grab-and-go cafe, and a flexible space for educational programs, private rentals and special events.

The restaurant’s new name is inspired by the longleaf pine, the resilient evergreen conifer indigenous to Georgia and the Southeast and a focus of significant conservation efforts.

    Food was bland and not worth the stop. Guy brought my food out with his thumb touching my food/no gloves. Waitress was kind and hostess was helpful.

    The restaurant was not busy during our visit. The decor and atmosphere matched the serenity and natural beauty of the Gardens. It has a huge patio area but the temperature was too warm to dine outside. We had the bruschetta for an appetizer which was delicious and the Salmon BLTA for our entree. The salmon was simply amazing, a very generous salmon filet with bacon, lettuce and tomato. The meal was filling and scrumptious. Our server was friendly and attentive. The prices were reasonable for the amount and quality of the food. It was our first time dining at Longlleaf but it certainly will not be our last.

    We stopped in for lunch and after 2 hours in the garden the A/C was welcome. We all had Chicken Salad sandwiches which were excellent. I had the fries and they had the salads and everyone enjoyed their meal. The service was wonderful and attentive. My only regret is the we didn't have room to try the Peach Cobbler and Peach Ice Cream

    We were celebrating Father’s Day a day early. We had 1:00 P. M. reservations at Longleaf. We were a few minutes early and received sincere apologies that we needed to wait a minute or two for our table. Our server Kendra was a delight. It was a memorable occasion in a lush setting with delicious food. Thank you.

    I was a little disappointed in the food. I had the grilled chicken sandwich and it was pretty bland. My friend had the shrimp and grits and said they were wonderful. Service was ok. When I had looked at the pictures on the web site I thought they would have a bigger menu as the pics showed some amazing looking food. The drinks were the best part of the meal for me. . Depending on what you were looking for in food, it was ok.

    We live nearby and dine here often, but the restaurant has only recently begun taking reservations past 6 p.m. We were happy to return to dinner-hour dining. (They now take reservations until 7:30 p.m.) First, the very good. Service was outstanding (even though there were only two rather overworked servers) and the vegetable plate was gorgeous: fresh, nothing overcooked, properly seasoned, good variety. Now the bad. The interior needs some serious attention. The dining spaces are divided by floor-to-ceiling curtain panels. They're filthy (there was a gigantic stain, perhaps ketchup, splattered over the bottom of the panel by our table; it's disgusting) and torn, both at the top and along the hems. This is a shame because the interior space is so lovely. Management, please address this. Even removal of the panels would be better than being surrounded by these curtains.

    I ordered the steak and fries. The steak of the night was ribeye so there was an upcharge. It was very good. The butter that came with it was on the saltier side. My husband ordered the pork sandwhich. He liked it but the pork needed to be shredded more since in the sandwhich. The taste was great. The service was fine. Overall, it was nice and enjoyable.

    Great food. I strongly recommend the Vegetable Harvest - it is all from the Edible Garden. Service was great. Savannah was our waiter. And the best part was the walk around the gardens after our meal…

    Open Table moved my reservation to 6:30 from 7:00 p.m. When we arrived at 6:30 we had to wait for a table while other people coming in later were seated. There was some mixup and our server did not approach our table until after 7:00 p.m. She did offer a free appetizer recognizing we were left waiting. The appetizer was brought out and immediately after our meals arrived, poor timing on the food presentation. The meals were delicious, and so was the appetizer.

    We’ve been kind of disappointed with Longleaf since the pandemic. They always used to have homemade french fries and now they’re frozen their hamburgers are just there’s so much stuff on them that you can’t close the hamburger so you have to take some of the lettuce off the chicken salad sandwich which I had not recently but maybe five weeks ago had way too much mayonnaise in it so I’m hoping somebody might listen to this and not be offended
