Had lunch today at Longroom and was very enjoyable. There's a bit of construction going on there so a bit noisy but the service that we received was fantastic and could not be faulted. I had the caesar salad which, unlike many other offerings around town, was packed full of the essential ingredients.
A Ponsonby lunch spot that's recommended!
Me and my partner visited the Longroom about a year ago for breakfast,coffee and a morning cocktail... Anyway we waited like 45min for our food and noticed other people were getting there food before us..And decided to ask "hey whats going on"
The waitress was SOOO apologetic and said it was heree fault and didnt put the order through so told us to order anything off the menu at here expense and we would only be charged for our coffees and encouraged us to order as much as we want. I think she handled this situation wonderfully and pretty much got a free brunch. Most places i go to are rude and would never offer "free mealS, would be more like a free "drink" or something, on top of the wonderful service food and drinks were delish, we will be back to the Longroom and have spread the word of your great service.
I popped into Long Room on a warm Saturday afternoon with some girlfriends for a cheeky avo drink and was pleasantly surprised. With a great courtyard and attentive staff, we were off to a good start. With an extensive wine and beer list there was something to please everyone and table service was a lovely surprise for a bar (including offering a tab rather than having to ask and bringing the EFTPOS machine to our table!). My cold-blooded friend was blown away by the free supply of 'blankies' on each chair in the courtyard, despite not needing it on this day, the fact they were there was a great touch. All in all, the longroom was a great place for a get together with friends and if I find myself on Ponsonby Road in need of a little hydration, I wouldn't hesitate in returning to Long Room.
Longroom in Ponsonby on a beautiful Sunday arvo. There was not a better day to visit.
I do recommend getting a table in the courtyard if the weather's good.
The place is pretty friendly for kids too in the day as there was a big family having a meal at one of the long tables.
Food-wise, some items at the Longroom were stand outs, while others fell short. The crumbed calamari was fried well, but felt like it was composed of 70% flour and 30% calamari. The lamb empanadas and meatballs were forgettable.
I'd highly recommend the pork belly and the Thai fish cakes. Superb dishes. Get a bowl of chips to soak up the sauce that comes with the pork belly.
A fan of chocolate? Then get the chocolate fondant! Decadently delicious.
Big selection of drinks. Not sure about their cocktails though. Didn't really like mine. Maybe stick to their extensive wine & beer list.
Service was a bit slow. It took a while for our orders to be taken, although, the waitress was really efficient in asking for our drinks order. The staff are friendly though.
Have yet to visit when the place is busier, but definitely a great place for a slow lazy Sunday arvo. I'm sure I'm not the only one who thought so, what with the steady flow of patrons coming and going.
All in all.. would love to go back and have another round of that pork belly. Yum.
really rate longroom amongst ponsonby's late night destinations. well priced drinks and staff that aren't d*&^heads. There is a bit of spunk about the place but that's what ponsonby is about really. Longroom is a large space too - especially with the outdoor setting - and thankfully it's not full to capacity.
the longroom is a cranking spot - probably the best along Ponsonby Road on a Friday night. All the glams are there and that's quite hard case seeing them strut their stuff but the bouncers are pretty relaxed and the good thing is they don't cram people in there. The bar staff at longroom are very good to - awesome how they bring the mobile eftpos along with the drinks - great service!
surprisingly good wine list and some really good tunes. Hadn't been to the Longroom before but after this experience I think I'll look to make a habit of visiting this Ponsonby bar.
went to longroom before dinner at a nearby ponsonby restaurant last week and what surprised me about the longroom was the extent of the drinks list. Both the beer and wine list is extremely comprehensive. The setting is quite sophisticated too - can quite easily see a return visit to the longroom on the cards.
Great DJ on Sat nites .Plays old school and new trax . Cool crowd and stylish surroundings
Awesome local... great drinks and great food.. great place to go and chill with mates.. friendly staff .. def recommend
Longroom is a breath of fresh air to Ponsonby! Decor is fantastic, Great Tapas and a brilliant selection of Wines to complement. Both times I have been it has been very busy but the staff are efficient and still make the time for customers (unlike some other Bar's).
