Since 1971, The Orangery in Knoxville has offered a unique fine dining experience with a seasonal menu featuring classic French and international cuisine presented with elegance and flair reminiscent of the Old World. Led by chefs Johnny Wolfe and David Gregory, it is East Tennessee’s only restaurant to be awarded a coveted AAA Four Diamond rating. Whether seated in the main dining room, or in one if the other seven separate dining areas of the restaurant, guests experience an ambiance like nowhere else. Enjoy the courtyard for a more casual bar menu and happy hour (daily till 7 p.m.). Reception facilities available. (Lunch service ends at 2 p.m., dinner service begins at 5:30 p.m.)

From Yummm!, the Metro Pulse Restaurant Guide:

There are certain memories that last a lifetime: The first time you open a bottle of Dom Pérignon; your first ride in a black, stretch limo; and any of life’s special moments that you share at the Orangery.

That’s why East Tennesseans have chosen it again and again to celebrate great moments. The Orangery helps create memories because it is more than just a restaurant—it’s an icon of the good life. Its air of refined continental elegance creates the perfect setting for engagements, weddings, birthdays, graduations, and all occasions, both great and small, that are worth remembering.

Of course, an exceptional occasion demands equally exceptional cuisine, and that’s something you’ll find in abundance at the Orangery, Knoxville’s premiere shrine of fine dining and East Tennessee’s only restaurant to be awarded a coveted AAA Four Diamond rating.

Chefs Johnny Wolfe and David Gregory guard the Orangery’s tradition of world-class fare with care to maintain classic French offerings and also to showcase the best of international specialties and modern cuisine. You can enjoy traditional caviar service or caviar deviled eggs; and foie gras is on the menu, but so too are spring rolls and duck confit. The restaurant’s classic dishes are as grand as ever—there are few indulgences that match the luxury of Lobster and Mushroom Crepes or porcini braised rabbit. The Orangery is the only restaurant in the area where you can enjoy the indulgence that is Chateaubriand: It’s a feast for two that features beef tenderloin carved and sauced at your table and served with roasted fingerling potatoes, wild mushrooms, garlic spinach, and a classic veal and white wine reduction.

Of course you don’t have to be celebrating nuptials, an opening night, or a major victory on the field to appreciate what the Orangery brings to the table. Handcrafted and specialty cocktails become especially enjoyable in the Orangery’s atrium courtyard—particularly during the weekday Happy Hour from 5:30 p.m.-7 p.m. And the air is filled with live music five nights a week. Every day at the Orangery is a celebration.

Whether you’re celebrating with 200 friends and family in the Grand Ballroom or enjoying an intimate gathering in one of four private dining rooms, or just sharing a well-deserved dinner out, the Orangery promises an affair of unmatched style and quality that will leave you with memories that will last a lifetime. And they make that promise their motto, “simply the best,” because that’s what the Orangery offers every time.
