Diner Reviews
  • "We chose Kres for our pre theater dinner for its proximity to the Bob Carr Theater. We had a 6:00 pm reservation but because of the Downtown Traffic and an Orlando Magic game we were late. Our server helped to keep us on our schedule without sacrificing quality or service. I had the NY Strip perfectly seasoned and cooked. My Wife had the Duck, also wonderful. Our only regret not having enough time to try the Bread Pudding for desert. We will definitely be back."

  • "Our server, Al, was friendly and helpful in describing unfamiliar ingredients in drink & food offerings. I tried the oysters Rockefeller. Not the best I ever had. IMO the oysters were undercooked(I don't eat raw) but tender and fresh. The spinach was runny. I disliked the taste of Pernod on top. My husband was quickly offered extra vegetables when he mentioned not caring for one of his sides. In answer to my questions, Al endorsed the pork chop and pork belly. Nice grilled flavor, tender. The tomato jam was delicious! I almost asked for more! It was perfect with the pork. As a side I had the same spinach as in the oysters Rockefeller, good flavor. It's a large side meant to be shared. I had a wonderful glass of an Argentine white wine. "

  • "My party was a double birthday celebration. The restaurant was understanding of our tardiness.Our server was knowledgeable and patient. Everyone was pleased with their meals, the service was great. I order the lobster tail, and it was by far one of the best I've tasted. Server also went beyond normal expectation, by providing the birthday girls with birthday treats to conclude our visit. I'll definitely be returning and recommending."

  • "Typical steakhouse with overpriced food and sides. Portions are too big for one and two small to split. Duckling was excellent - surprising at a steak house. Service was super slow and took almost 30 minutes to figure our bill although we were a group of 8 asking for 6-way split. Challenged to handle a large group."

  • "This was our first time to Kres Cophouse, but definitely not the last. Our server Brandi knew the menu and timed our dinner perfectly when we told her we had to catch a show; she helped make our visit an excellent dining experience. I started with the seared scallops -- a wonderful combination of sweet from the scallops and heat from the sriracha in the sauce. My 12 oz filet entre was cooked to a perfect med-rare and the beef was superior (I'm from the Midwest and pretty picky about my steaks). I also ordered a side of mushrooms that where incredible. No desert because of the show... next time!"

  • "I have been to KRES Chophouse on two other occasions and loved it each time. I can't say enough about the food--really excellent. There were five of us, celebrating a birthday. The service is top-notch. We had cocktails, then appetizers. The diver scallops, calamari and Oysters Rockefeller were all delicious. The lobster bisque is among the best I've had anywhere. I had the Beef Wellington, friends had the ribeye, the filet mignon and the duck. Everyone raved about their food. It is located in a 1930s landmark building that was a five and dime store. They have kept the original architecture and added to the Art Deco style. It is also "considered to be a paranormal hot-spot by Central Florida ghost hunters." I saw nothing unusual."

  • "This was a repeat visit to Kres, and the restaurant continues to live up to its well earned reputation. Our steaks were cooked perfectly. Spot on service. The one negative comment is that the wine is not served at proper temperature. We had the Nickel & Nickel. Not only was it not slightly chilled, it was slightly warm as if the storage area was a little hot."

  • "It was by far the best steakhouse in Orlando. Steaks perfectly cooked. The salads and sides were equally delicious. They even created special sundaes for us. Our waitress Lindsay was especially helpful, but never intrusive. Make sure to check it out."

  • "We visited Kres at a challenging time between sessions of NCAA tourney games on Thursday, March 20. Still, Kres passed with flying colors in spite of the challenges. Our server was pleasant, attentive and provided first rate service. The Wedge salad was very good. While my steak wass good, there are better steaks in the Central Florida area. My companions enjoyed the filet while I tried the NY Prime. I will return to Kres in the future and I definitely recommend it while in downtown Orlando!"

  • "What a nice find Downtown. Not a lot of folks make it downtown when visiting Orlando, but we wanted to get away from the commotion of the parks and find a nice steak place. Kres fit that bill very well. Really nice modern vibe, with both traditional and updated menu items. The service was outstanding... friendly and attentive without hovering or being obsequies. For starters, the Lobster Bisques was outstanding. Very rich and flavorful. We all got steaks and they were all perfectly prepared to our liking with just the right amount of seasoning."

  • "The food and service were both wonderful. I had the Filet Wellington and it was amazing! My friend had the Filet with a side of creamed spinach, and she loved it. We also had the shrimp cocktail as an appetizer, which was delicious! I can't emphasize enough how great the food AND service were! Will definitely return next time I'm in Orlando!"

  • "We were a party of 5 vacationers who dine here. The service was excellent. The food, for the most part, was good. I would stay away from what I ordered, though - steak au poivre. I don't know what kind of meat the 'steak' was, but it was strangely dense with a weird texture, and it was very, very salty. I typically like salty things, but this was too much for even me. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their meals. I only ate half of my steak, and gave some to other family members to try, and no one liked it."

  • "This was my first time visiting Kres Chophouse. I did not know what to expect. I came during the middle of the lunch service. The restaurant was full. The restaurant was packed, but we were promptly seated, the noise level wasn't too bad and service was amazing. The server was not too intrusive but sufficiently attentive that i didn't feel left out. Then came the food. Wow, it was amazing. I had the Grilled Chicken Caprese, every mouthful felt like an explosion of flavors inside my palate. The truffle vinaigrette did not over power the seasoning of the chicken. The cheese was fresh and delightful, the tomatoes perfectly cut, the basil was perfect. I could not have asked more of a salad."

Waiter was a little slow, but was very polite and was attentive to our dining needs. lamb ribs were a bit over cooked but were delicious. I ordered steak rib eye which was outstanding very nice quality of meat. My GF ordered the duck, said it needed more seasoning but over all she gave it about a 6.5 on a scale from 1-10. Desert was great had the oreo cheese cake-really rich even for a chocoholic Over all had a great dining experince and a nice B-Day. I would recommded to my friends and I will dine again."

The plate had 2 asparagus spears, mashed potatoes and breaded steak. it was delightful. My boyfriend ordered alacart. His steak was perfectly prepared and delicious and the brussel sprout side he enjoyed fully. The service was great, punctual and polite. Kres is one of our favorite restaurants in all of Orlando."

  • "Kres is a fixture on Church Street. That's because the place is great, the food is really good from appetizers through steaks. Above all the service is friendly and sharp. The bar usually hops and the people behind the bar are exceptional. You walk out feeling that you've had good value and a special evening. Highly recommended."
