I was looking for a romantic "nice" place to take my boyfriend for his birthday on Feb 9, 2013. After looking through pages and pages on Tripadvisor, I came across The Orangery. We live 2 hours away, and while we travel to Knoxville pretty frequently, I had never heard of the place. I did some research on it, and thought it sounded too expensive for us. For some reason though as I looked at other places, I kept coming back to The Orangery. I finally decided to email them and inquire on what they could do to make this dinner as special as it could be. After some back and forth questions, etc, I was beyond excited! They ended up making my boyfriend a chocolate cake with peanut butter butter cream icing! I wanted it to be a surprise for him, so she told me they would bring it out after we ate. We arrived and were blown away with how beautiful the restaurant is. We had a drink in the lounge, before dinner. Our dinner was equally amazing, and the filet mignon was tender and very, very good. The best we had ever had. After we ate, as they said they would, they brought out the cake - the 4-layer cake! I was blown away. They had even put candles on the cake for him. After having a piece between us, they boxed it up beautifully for us and left it at the front for us to take home. We will definitely be returning for another special occasion!
