Hereford House - Leawood reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Disappointing Service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/30/2014
    We have dined at this Hereford House for years, always very pleased with the dinning experience, this time was not up to their standards. We were seated in corner which it appears the server couldn't see us as we sat there for longer than usual time before he came by We ordered the steak soup which he served with no crackers, when the main order came out of the kitchen we asked for some ground pepper, the person that brought it out said he didn't have any but would tell the server who never came by nor did he bring any bread. He must have been too busy with "NO PROBLEM" comment about everything to bother to take care of our table. Then to finish off the evening on way out a sign on door they no longer will take Open Table reservations.

    waiter not very good; very slow -- very negative when asked for certain things -- just automatically said no, that's not how we do it. Each of us had single medallion -- not a very tender steak -- what gives with that? Not up to par at all.

    When I made the reservation I put Window Booth under special request. This has always worked in the past. They didn't have it this time and indicated that they have a new system that does not bring in information in the Special Request field from Open Table.

    We were at Hereford House for a business meeting. I asked for a quiet spot, and we got a private room. The food, as usual, was superb - even for the dork who ordered wings and fries. We were not rushed, and we occupied our space for two hours. I was so relaxed that I had to ask my server if I had paid or not! Hereford House never, never disappoints. Hey, it is a steak house, I had salmon, and was tickled to death with it!!!

  • Great food, poor ambiance
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 2/21/2014
    We were seated in a back room off the bar and I was happy because we didn't have to worry about cold air drafting in. I was very disappointed that there were 2 TVs on with different shows, both with the sound on and the music playing over the intercom. It was hard to hear or concentrate on anything until I asked to fix it. It had more of a sports bar feel instead of a very nice restaurant for date night and special occasions. I also requested a booth and was told none were available even though the there were 2 in that room that went unused the entire time we were there. The food service was incredibly slow that night, however our server was very nice. The food was fantastic as always, and we tried the clam chowder was amazing!

    Dined on 2/21/2014
    I tried the Hereford House for lunch about a year ago and things haven't changed. Food was tasteless, presentation mediocre.. We waited a couple of minutes before someone came to greet and seat us. I ordered chicken sandwich with fries. The chicken had grill lines on it, but I'm sure they were painted on. Tender, but no flavor. No amount of salt, mayonnaise or mustard could help, even with mushrooms, lettuce, tomato, onions and cheese.. Fries were okay, I should have requested ketchup, maybe that would have helped them, but that isn't something that I normally use. Husband ordered steak sandwich, and salad. Both sandwiches had mushrooms that were obviously canned. His Caesar salad was the best part of both our meals.

    I wouldn't recommend this restaurant for a romantic dining experience. The tables were extremely small no room to move around. The server was not attentive to our needs. We were overcharged by adding things on our ticket that was included in a set price.

    Small tables were placed upstairs in the restaurant to accommodate Valentine's Day high demand. Unfortunately, they did a poor job of providing any decorations that made for a memorable dining experience. The tables were too small and service was only acceptable.

    While, the food and service was very good we were placed in the upstairs room. The room lacked décor and the table and chairs were very uncomfortable and left a very poor image of the Hereford House. I will not be dining at the Hereford House in the future, it was not what I expected.

    Hereford House was able to accommodate my small group for a business lunch, while being sensitive to the discussion that would take place, by reserving a private room off the dining room with french doors that closed for privacy. Service was very good and we were quite pleased with the meal, timeliness of service and the overall atmosphere.

    Service was spotty - at first no one, then 3 at one time, forgot mushrooms which were served when entree was almost finished; when time to leave waited 15-20 minutes for check. It never arrived so we walked out to front desk to say we were ready to go. Horrible experience with another diner who was LOUD and on a cell phone constantly. Of course, that was not necessarily the restaurant's fault, but it capped off a bad experience. My husband's prime rib was tough, but my strip steak was very good.

    Loves Hereford house in the 90s but this one was a game changer. Both our steaks were requested med-rare and they came out burned. We waited 50 minutes for our steaks so we didn't want to refund. Moving on, hyvee would have been better.

    The food was just fabulous as always! Our server seemed a little scattered. He did apologize for our beers taking a little bit to come out. ( they were changing the keg) We totally understand and was fine with it. We did order an appetizer and never received it. I was really wanted them too. Oh well, we didn't get charged for them. We love going to the Hereford House for dinner. It's always such a treat!!

  • True Traditional Steakhouse
    MeteorMuse
    Dined on 1/19/2014
    We got what we were looking for... a Kansas City steak house with a focus on great meat and traditional steak house fare. I'm usually more of a nouveau cuisine fan, but we were looking for a place that shows off the tradition of Kansas City's beef fame. My ribeye was delicious, the calamari was good, and the in-house carrot cake was excellent. We were pleased. Slightly slow on water refills, but I'm pregnant and drink a LOT of water, so I can't say it was slow by standard measures – just by my needs. The atmosphere and decor were nice if uninspired. I think I'd have preferred a slightly darker, heavier more masculine decor but that's personal preference. It was nice – tasteful, appropriate and clean.
