“Great Food, service is good but slow.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We were looking for a nice restaurant in the Kennett Square area for an anniversary celebration with another couple. We find The Orchard restaurant which is BYOB and have a classy look style as well. As we arrived, they took our bottle of wine and take charge of the service of the wine. I never had this experience before in a BYOB but it was great in a way because we have no bottles on the table. The glass were filled all the time but it make us drink more. The food is excellent, everything we had was good but service is on the slow side so you have to be ready to relax and stay for 3 hours in the restaurant. All meat were cook as we asked and it was really tender.
We would recommended this place for the quality of the food but not so for a family with children has it's a long service.

“Food is OK service isn't”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

A BYOB in Kennett Square Orchard has a nice following of locals who are happy with the place. It had been a while since dining there and we initially wondered why we hadn't been back sooner. then it came back, the service isn't on a par with the menu. It took forever for dishes to come out and from what seemed to be happening at other tables, we didn't have the worst of it. The food was OK, both entrees were undersauced and my fish was over cooked, but not criminally so. The amuses were nice. The service was the issue.

“Good Food, Mixed results”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We celebrated my wife's birthday at the Orchard Restaurant in Kennett Square PA along with her daughter and her husband. The food was uniformly excellent, both the tasty appetizers(Parsnip soup, Chèvre Tarte) and four of the entrees (Scallops, Black Sea Bass, Quail and Moulard Duck). What a disappointment when our servers were not sure how some of the entrees were prepared, what sides came with an entree, and knew almost nothing about the numerous amuse bouches that were served throughout the meal and how they fit into the dining experience. This included both our waitress and the other staff. At a high end French style restaurant such as this tries to be, we expect the wait staff to be knowledgable about what they are serving and be able share their pleasure in the food with their guests.

“Great BYOB Restaurant”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

The food is excellent, as is the service. The atmosphere is formal. While the food is a bit pricey, the fact that it is byob helps keep the total tab in the reasonable range. It is set back from the road behind a small strip center, just off Route 1. Its location is very, very convenient to Longwood.
