    Chic & upscale! Well trained wait staff on wines and dishes. They are also friendly and reasonable. Our reservation was at 10:15. They close at 11 but we were not rushed. We were impressed! We left full & happy. We will return.

    Chef Mary and her team deliver excellence. Rodney, our server, was just welcoming, and delivered outstanding service. From description of menu and his favorites to his continuous "check in" of our table, we truly experienced a memorable time and meal at Kres. A Monday night, thus the "low score" of noise, but surely it can be noisy on the weekends but maybe the high ceilings carry the noise upwards. A wonderful experience to be had by all. Reservations are highly recommended.

    Last night my husband and I celebrated a birthday with a couple visiting from out of state with an amazing dinner in downtown Orlando. We had drinks before dinner at their very comfortable bar, then we were greeted by our enthusiastic server after we were seated at the time of our reservation. The recommended Wagyu carpaccio appetizer was fantastic, and we all had succulent New York strip steaks for our entrees. Just writing about these steaks makes me remember the incredible flavor! The sides of mushrooms, potatoes and asparagus were perfect..The wine list was extensive, and our friends raved about their pre-dinner martinis. For a treat for our birthday guest, our waitress gifted us our incredible dessert of the chosen dark chocolate molten turtle with a side of vanilla ice cream..just heavenly! The pricing was reasonable for the quality of food, ambience and attentive, friendly service. There is no question that Kres Chophouse is one of my favorite steak restaurants!

    Why 4 and not a 5? I really wanted to give it a 5 based on just service and food which were outstanding. We chose Kres for their Saturday vegetarian menus in particular for someone in our party. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed all the food and incredibly attentive service. It was a bit too loud for conversation in their main dining room for us, so we’re glad they seated us in an area near the back that was definitely more quiet. The ambience left us scratching our heads though. All black and red seemed outdated and frankly kind of harsh. We were seated in the only area with brown (?) walls where the decor consisted of two large mirrors propped in the corners. All in all, we think we’d return, but for the money it seems the restaurant could be more elegant.

    This was our first time at Kres and we will be back. My husband and I had the 8 Oz filet, which was one of the best steaks we can remember having at a restaurant. We shared two sides - back potato and crispy Brussel sprouts. Both were excellent, but the brussel sprouts were exceptional. We didn't have room for a big dessert but shared the berries and whipped cream which was a nice refreshing end to a great meal.

    Dining with our server, Justin, was an absolute masterpiece. We greatly appreciated his knowledge, kindness, and dedication to his craft. Though on the pricey side (to be expected), we hope to return and have such an excellent experience yet again. Thank you to the staff for such a wonderful evening with equally wonderful food and drink!

    We had lobster bisque where no lobster was present. My mom ordered the lobster tail and the seasoning overpowered the lobster completely. I ordered the beef Wellington where there was an oddly sweet sauce accompanying it and together the Wellington was underwhelming. I will say the filet was indescribably tender. Our service was slow at best and we were offered a free desert but couldn’t take her up on it since we were late for our show. For the money we wouldn’t likely go back.

    . We had reservations we decided to sit in the bar area at a high top. Our sever was very kind and punctual. Ordered 2 Cincoro tequilas on the rocks, the person who was not our sever dropped them off to us and said “two casamigos?” He apologized after we explained what we ordered and took them back to fix it. Then the first sever who took care of us came back around and said “he read the ticket wrong”. Another random guy came up to us asking if we are ready to order-didn’t know who he was or what his name was. Got our drinks (still not Cincoro for sure). Random guy comes back around -we order. We ordered salmon medium well and waygu medium. Food comes out Salmon was amazing! Steak was rare-med rare. We were on a time crunch for a reservation and appreciated the server (our original one) asking to fix it. Then we see what appeared to be a manager point at us- manger never came over, steak was comped off our bill but we were charged $100 for tequila that was not even the correct brand that we ordered. Between the multiple people who where taking care of us (not one said their name) the time of the food and the fact that a manger couldn’t even come by to table touch and speak to us, we won’t be returning. Having a staff that knows the difference of tequilas would be a good investment if you are going to charge that amount. Also having a manager who doesn’t point at us and comes over and addresses the issue probably would have made the experience a little more pleasant. Over priced, wrong drinks, time consuming and not worth it

    Excellent service and so many great options for dinner! Our server Rodney was very helpful with suggestions. We tried the pre fix vegan menu and the mix of flavors was exquisite. We also tried the filet and shrimp with the pasta carbonara that had the perfect amount of heat. The bread pudding was amazing! And we met Mary Fonseca, the executive chef so our compliments to her and the kitchen staff for an astounding meal!
