“Another wonderful dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2012

From the small dining room setting to the excellent presentation of the incredible food, Orchard is and continues to be a special place. We've been before and every visit is a new 'adventure' for our taste buds. Chef Gary is wonderful, the dishes are filling but do not leave you overstuffed. We enjoyed Orchard so much, we got a gift certificate for my wife's administrative assistant for the holidays 2010. She asked for another one for Christmas 2011 as well.

“The best BYOB in Phila area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

The Orchard is a wonderful restaurant. The food is high end, foodies would enjoy this place. I have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed. The food is elegant in design and taste. The extra small pre-meal, the in between courses of creative sorbets and the sweets after the meal are some of the highlights. And of course, bringing your own wine is a big plus in keeping the cost down. Lastly Gary the chef and owner is always a pleasure to talk to as he makes his rounds in this small intimate restaurant.

“Comfortable dining with good food and service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2011

This is a small, quiet, elegant restaurant off of busy route one in Kennet Square. It is set far enough from the road to give it a quiet setting.
The food is good although the choices are somewhat limited. There are, however enough choices to satisfy our taste. The salad that my wife had was beautiful and tasty. My mushroom-chevre appetizer was too much cheese and not enough mushrooms for my taste.
My veal entre was delicious and did have great mushroom accompanying it on the plate. The sauce was scrumptious. My wife had the duck which was also tender and tasty.
The restaurant is a BYOB and they do charge a $5 corking fee. The meals are not cheap but the portions are just right, the food is very good and the service was perfect. We never felt rushed. The waiter helped us make choices which were right on the mark. We will return.

“Delightful in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2011

This is a magical restaurant that serves world-class food in a relaxed welcoming surrounding. The second floor tables are ample, and the adjacent lounge adds a sophisticated backdrop. The presentation and the ingredients were a delight for the eye and the pallet. We had just arrived from San Francisco, jumped into our friend's car, and traveled he backroads of Chester County to find this culinary gem. Rivals the Michelin starred locations back home!! Would love to have a "neighborhood" restaurant like this close by.
