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. Guests dining inside will enjoy commanding views of the Anne Cox Chambers Southern Seasons Garden and Levy Parterre.

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.

    The food tonight was fantastic, noticeably better menu options than visits in previous years. Try the pork belly appetizer! The food and drink service was slower, but the staff were very good and communicated with us. Enjoyed viewing the holiday lights while we dined.

    We eat at Longleaf every year when we see the garden lights. The server was hilarious and he had them alter the dish I wanted to Gulten-Free. We started with a wonderful cheese board.

    The service was absolutely abysmal. We had reservations at 6:30pm and did not receive our appetizers for45 mins. The entree’s came out 25 minutes later. The Lobster pasta dish was disgusting. However, the mushroom risotto dish was delicious!

    Our food was excellent...a little pricy, but good. The service was poor. Unfortuately, our server had three large parties (we were seven) and it took almost two hours to get our food. We have been to Longleaf many times and this was a bit unusual. They must have been short of staff.

    The Botanical Gardens is my favorite spot in Atlanta, and this darling restaurant adds to that charm! I’ve been a member for 10+ years and have seen this restaurant transform in that time. While my experience was still lovely, this was the first time I encountered such a long wait to receive our food. I was on a first date, and had to apologize to him, pointing out how it wasn’t the norm. Again, the evening still turned out great! I just wanted to make note.

    New Menu for this season didn't have great choices like the Summer selection. Lobster bisque was served cold and didn't have any flavor. Drinks were decent.

    We were disappointed in limited menu that seemed to be summer lunch offerings. The chicken salad sandwich was mediocre-the staff praised the addition of celery and grapes-there was one grape half in my sandwich! The side salad large leaves of mixed greens without dressing. When staff asked how our meal was, one at our table described disappointment in the side salad; the staff walked away without comment! In our past visits pre-covid we were please with the menu, quality/variety of food and service. Unfortunately, this time we were not.

    The poutine appetizer was very good but the chicken salad sandwich was mushy and the bread was overtoasted (on all 4 chickenn salad orders at our table). The apple 'pie' was disappointing. The coffee was excellent as was the staff.

    It was a nice place and the food was pretty good. The service, however, was pretty bad. They rushed us, spilled water on our table and didn't clean it, were rude, and not very attentive. It wasn't a bad place but it isn't a fine dining experience, which is what you end up paying for when the check comes.

    Service was exceptional! Food was delicious. Fireplace was on and added a nice warmth to the room. Food presentation was photo worthy. Chicken was tender, and the roasted vegetables were not only yummy but seasoned and presented beautifully. We’re new to Atlanta and one of the factors we became annual members was to enjoy Longleaf. Nice wine and cocktail menu too.

    We love eating at the Longleaf whenever we come to Atlanta Botanical Garden. The ambiance is so lovely, surrounded by the trees and flowers, and the food is always excellent. We had the chicken salad sandwich and salmon sandwich this time, both with the house side salad, and everything was so delicious. And the service is always friendly and excellent as well!

    I have been here many times and enjoyed myself but today was very disappointing. First of all, the host was pretty rude and forgot to bring a booster seat until we had to go in and ask a second time. We ordered after about 20 minutes waiting and then sat for an hour with no drinks, no food and 2 small kids. When we finally ordered they didn’t have half the items on the menu. We had to go in the restaurant and ask again for every single item including a towel bc of the soda our 3 year old spilled bc they had no straws so she couldn’t use a cup with a lid. We were there for 2 hours total and all we ordered were salads, wine, and soft drinks.

    We love coming to this place. But the service is getting to slow. The prices have become way too high for what you get. I don’t mind the entree price that much, but 6 dollars for bread, and $11 for a small bowl of kids pasta is ridiculous. Also an $11 for a small slice of carrot cake and $5 dollars for one small scoop of Ice cram is too much. Also the vanilla ice cream isn’t all that good. May have to take a break from this place for awhile

    Coffee cup had a crack Water had something floating in it Service was congenial but slow. Table top wasn’t clean when we sat down. This is one of my favorite restaurants so I hope These things can be corrected. I did not mention these to the server as it was so long between her checking with us that I never would have gotten to eat/drink

    Nice venue, very good service, their prices have really jumped, which is not a shock, but what used to be a pretty good value is now somewhat marginal, but it's in the garden and that counts for something.
