Our children arranged a family birthday dinner for my husbands birthday. The restaurant accommodated a large group about 16 guests. Guests loved the atmosphere, food was delicious and staff attentive and accomodating. Owner stopped by to chat and give us a little history on the building which is being restored by him. Al fresco available in good weather and I... More

The Orangery is hidden away in several acres just of Lincoln Highway near Downingtown. The long gravel driveway leads to a beautifully restored building with a tasteful dining room. The fixed price, set menu (changed every couple of weeks) offers several courses which all proved delightful. The host and owner, Paul, was attentive and informative about the history of the... More

Valentines dinner was wonderful. This is a place you do not have to worry about over crowded and poor service for this event, Valentines dinner. The seating is limited, it is a one time dinning, set menu, and bring your own wine. No de-corking fee. And one price. Room is delighful, a renovated little mansion type house set on a... More

Love the idea of this restaurant. Older home transformed into a dining spot. Set price. Set menu. Many small courses. So you get so many different flavors and experiences. Although one person in our party had many food aversions. So if your picky this isn't the place for you because your going to pay for food you might not like.... More

The Orangery has been my favorite BYO to visit and recommend over the last year. However our last experience was disappointing as compared to our prior experiences. The food was good although the amuse bouche was identical to the 2nd course and only presented differently. Our major complaint was the quality of the service and basic lack of customer service...

Brought someone here to celebrate his birthday. Arrived a bit early to wander the ruins/grounds (nothing extensive, just a great taste of Chester County history). We were offered the choice of where to sit by Paul, the chef/owner's husband) and chose to sit on the outside patio, which at this time of year was perfect. Each course was lovingly and... More

Friends had given us a gift certificate to enjoy what they said was one of their favorite restaurants in Chester County. After our experience there last Friday, we've joined their fan club. Everything about our evening their was unique, special, and enjoyable. The single seating and BYO was nice. The restored building and property, & the stories about all of... More

Friends invited us to what they called "their special occasion" restaurant in Downingtown. But this is not just a restaurant, it is an experience! From the time you drive up to the Orangery, you are struck by the pure beauty of the entire home and surrounding land. The dinners are a set menu and there is only one seating per... More
