My parents were celebrating
My parents were celebrating their 50th anniversary with a group of 8 - and their evening was PERFECT! The food was excellent, and the wait staff was very attentive. I was able to arrange and pay over the phone for the restaurant to have a bottle of champagne iced and ready when they arrive.

Great Easter Brunch
Easter Brunch was memorable. Usually a restaurant has difficulty transforming itself from a quiet "wait server" establishment to a "buffet" brunch arrangement. They carried it off superbly.'The dining room was untouched, with all it's ambiance. Without good food, ambiance isn't enough. They did not fail in the that either. Great selection, and the taste was super.

this was the first time for
this was the first time for evening dinning and it was a special occasion. The time that my wife and I spent was memorable for both us and our waiter, Chase made the the difference.

VERY GOOD EXCEPT...
We loved our early evening anniversary dinner at the Hereford House in Wichita. Although it was rainy and dreary outside, we appreciated the view of the golf course. The steaks, bread, vegetables were excellent (EXCEPT for the House and Caesar salads which were tiny colorless pieces of lettuce with two teeny cherry tomatoes on the side. I strongly recommend that you discover where PANERA gets their salad greens which are always GREEN, CRISP medium-sized pieces of Romaine.)
Our server was very attentive, and she conscientiously gave us time to peruse the menu. However, 45 minutes is too long to wait from restaurant entrance to when we were served our first food. We enjoyed the wine presentation in the unusual decanter.

We went with another couple
We went with another couple and while our food was great, his steak was not. His family has been in the meat business for over 50 years and he tasted my husbands and mine and said they were fine . So, three of us had gret meals, one bad. HH did take his meal off the bill including his dessert.

Firm Lunch @ Hereford House
The potatoes were fantastic! All of the food portions were nice except for my grilled chicken plate which was quite small. Actually the entire table was surprised by its smallness. Thought maybe I had ordered off of the kid's meal. Overall we had a nice meal and looking out over the golf course was nice. We were the only table in the dining room during lunch and it seemed to take such a long time for our food to arrive. Maybe there were issues we weren't aware of. Overall good food and great time.

This was a first time visit. Wife and I went there for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. Food and service were excellent. If you were into wine (which we are not), looks like the place to be. It was a Wednesday night, so they were not very busy. They have an outoddor patio, but it was cold and windy so no one was out there. Staff paid a lot of attention to us and we had a wonderful evening. We will probably only visit on special occasions or as a treat, because of the cost.

Wonderful dining experience!
I have been here many times. They have an extensive wine list and some of the best wine accessories and glassware. The food is always wonderful. We use Hereford House for business meetings quite often. It is a perfect setting to be able to discuss business or just have a social evening while enjoying fabulous wine and food.

Mother's Day Dinner
We tried to make reservations for brunch- however there were no times available that were convenient for us. That was probably a blessing- as we were told there were about 700 there for brunch- When our family group all arrived, there were about 7 others dining- so it was a very relaxed and quiet atmosphere. The servers were attentive even though they were tired. The spring salad was excellent-the dressing refreshing. The restaurant had run out of ribs -but the grandchildren enjoyed the steak medallions. The salmon was perfectly seasoned and flaky. We have dined here many times and though it's pricey- the experience is great. We had our Anniversary party there -our grandson told everyone it was the best meal of his life!!

Steaks were a little salty
Our steaks were slightly over salted but still very good. Service was good and a very nice room with a great view. Will return for another occasion.
Waiter said theft were not affiliated with Kansas City Hereford House but talked about Pierponts at KC Union Station. Having been there, not on same level but still very nice.

Best Steak in metro Wichita !
It isn't often one gets a steak grilled to perfection, a little charged on the outside, and an amazing medium rare on the inside flavored by the Chef's own blend of spices, but the Hereford House was able to provide just that. Our waiter was an advocate of the grilled steak v. the prime rib and he was right on. Our waiter also said we would not need our usual "steak sauce" and we learned we should have trusted him. The sides including the magnificent "loaded" baked potato were a wonderful compliment to the steak and tasty as well.
Service was attentive but not hovering and the food items were served in timely succession with a sizzling plates holding those wonderful cuts of meat.
We will definitely return !!

Favorite steak in Wichita
I took my husband and family to the Hereford House to celebrate my husband's birthday. Dinner and the service was amazing. I was pleasantly surprised by the Riedel Wine glasses and the beautiful decanter used to serve our wine. It made the dinner even better! The dinning room faces the golf course. It was a beautiful view. I will go back. It is now my favorite steak restaurant in Wichita (over Scotch & Sirloin and Chesters)!

Best kept secret in Wichita
It isn't an obvious choice, tucked back from Central and 159th in a residential area and sitting next to the Terradyne golf club... but Mike Issa's Hereford House is an absolute gem for the food, wine, ambiance and outstanding service.
Mike knows his wines and pays attention to the details - from the wine list to the stemware and decanters, and he makes sure his staff knows how to serve. He's a warm and charming host and knows how to make your party feel welcomed and special.
The outside seating is awesome when the weather cooperates. Inside is just as nice, with huge windows facing northwest onto the golf course for amazing sunset viewing across a lush manicured landscape.
It is our favorite place in Wichita...

Food was great, Rachel our server was attentive and made sure we were well taken care of. Went back next day for Sunday brunch. Will keep coming back for sure!

Live Band on the Patio
This is a great place to hang-out on Saturday night with live bands playing on the patio. Dancing, drinks, food, family and friends - no better way to spend an evening.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am thinking the Herford House is just one of my favorite places to have a nice dinner and drinks. Everything was just over the top and the live band rounded the evening out so nicely. I marked down the service because of the shear time frame our meal took, Start to finish it was over two hours. I understand when things are busy but the place was not that crowded and wait staff standing alot, with the excuse of other tables wanted to move outside just did not fit. Over all this is the place to go in Wichita for a great meal and surroundings.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was impeccable. The food was over the top. The night we had dinner a band was playing which made all the more exciting and fun. Anything you needed they provided.

Service outstanding----Food slow
We went to the Hereford House to celebrate a birthday. First, there was no one at the dining room station to direct us. Secondly, there was a wedding reception which dragged the kitchen to a halt. We waited over one-half hour after our salads to be served our main entree. They should have been able to predict how busy they would be with the wedding reception. I had a reservation and was disappointed that it took over two hours for our dinner. At $30 per person, plus drinks, I would have liked better kitchen support.

Wonderful Dining Experience
This was the second time for my wife and I to eat at the Hereford House and like the 1st time, we walked away with one of the most enjoyable dining experiences that we ever had. I would highly recommend it to everyone to try for that special someone on a special occasion.

Great food and service.
Sunday brunch is always a treat with great food and prompt service. What a bargain.
The ambience could improve with some sort of dress code. Although unpolished & not a snob (hate wearing a tie) I feel overdressed and in the presence of the unwashed masses at what should be an event deserving more than jeans and t shirts. It's Sunday brunch!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
My fiance and I dined for the first time here. We really enjoyed our waiter. He was very professional compared to the waitress on the table next to ours. Our acts came out with great timing. We also received sample wines that our waiter recommended. We ended up buying a bottle. Only opportunities I would have for this fine dining would be with my filet (it started off tasting amazing. Then when I got to the back of the steak.. which I am guessing was the deepest in the over to make it tasted like charcoal). The other opportunity would be receiving some bread. The table next to us was offered and received two breads. I would of liked to have one. Overall we enjoyed our dinner and our waiter.

Pricey and not up to par
Their service was very good and the food was brought at a timely and appropriate manner. But, for the price for the steaks.... I was disappointed. The cut of the Kc Strip was fine but it was tasteless and a tad tough. My wife ordered a side of mashed potatoes and they were cold. For one of the more pricey restaurants in the Wichita area, I would not say they were in the top for a fantastic steak dinner. Age that beef and SEASON It!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
We loved the steaks. The wine list was good. Wait Staff was knowledgable.
I like the restaurant and would return.
