    Using Open Table, I found Kres Chophouse. The menu looked good and fellow Open Tablers had given very positive reviews. I was a single early diner and everyone was very friendly and conversational. Recommendations were made as were decisions. The pork chop with bacon was one of the best I have enjoyed anywhere. There were very good half bottles of wine which was perfect. I was glad for the valet parking with some rain as I departed. The entire staff clearly takes great pride in their restaurant....and it is fully justified!

    Our night started at the bar where there wasn't currently a seat but we were quickly helped by a waitress and sat a few minutes later. The waitresses were very helpful and very nice. After being seated at our table we enjoyed one of the best steaks we had ever had in and around Orlando. That steak was followed with a bread pudding to die for. One of our most favorite restaurants by far.

  • Kres...just okay
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/9/2013
    I was expecting to be really impressed with Kres however it was just okay. The location and valet parking are great for dinner before a show at Bob Carr or Amway however I was very disappointed by our server and the food was good but not spectacular. Our server certainly didn't attempt to connect with us and when we asked for his recommendations it seemed he was bothered by the requests. I must admit that we probably shouldn't have selected Kres if we weren't interested in steak but with that said, the tuna and salmon were good. The cocktails (the Kres) and wine selections were great - the highlight of our meal.

    This is an excellent restaurant if you are looking for a great time out in downtown Orlando. I went with my wife, my boss, and her boyfriend; they all spoke glowingly of every course (they all had the Beef Wellington, I had the rabbit for entrees) and even had room for the bread pudding for dessert, which was outstanding as well. The beautiful people were all in full effect and it made for a great evening of people watching as well. An overall fantastic time.

    Kres Chop House proved to be grand dining and apparently a very popular, expensive watering hole and restaurant! Which we did not mind as it was a special night out for us. Fortunately we made reservation several weeks in advance, so a nice table was waiting for us at their front door entrance. We saw plenty of people saunter in, thinking they would be seated, but we're politely turned away.tTheir food service was a tad slow, but we're warned by our waiter because they were slammed. Knowing that and having time, we ordered anyway and enjoyed a well made cocktail and let our bottle of wine breathe, which was excellent. Our entrees arrived within 25 minutes and we were fine with that. Our meals were excellent and we never felt rushed.

    Great romantic spot to enjoy an amazing dinner! The server was a little flat, we would of enjoyed someone a little more personable. Additionally, it would have been nice to have the server offer recommendations for food and wine pairing. However, the porterhouse was cooked perfectly and the wine list was impressive!

    I was looking forward to revisiting Kres, the steaks are typically amazing. Ordered the porterhouse for two, medium rare along with sautéed Chef's vegetable for dinner. The big piece of meat came out precut into large chunks so it would be easier to share. The tenderloin side was medium well to well done while most of the strip portion was medium. Good thing the steak came with sauces. The vegetable looked as if it's been sitting under the heat lamp too long and did not taste much better. My companions, the wine, and bread pudding were outstanding. The service was stellar. It's unfortunate that a chophouse wasn't able to cook steak to the right temperature. Next time it'll be just wine and dessert, I guess.

    Meat was over cooked & tough, sides were mushy & over cooked and the service was horribly slow on a Monday night when there was no one in the restaurant. Wait staff was standing around talking amongst each other rather than waiting on the 5 table that were occupied - definitely WOULD NOT GO BACK.

    My fiancée went there for dinner and had a great experience. The service was excellent. The food was very good. I had the ribeye and she had the filet. Both were cooked properly and tasted great. I only gave 4 stars only because even though the steaks were great it was nothing special compared to any high end steakhouse. Don't let this discourage you from going.

    My wife and I visited Orlando on Saturday night. We wanted to stay away from the Disney scene. I researched on several websites for a nice place for dinner. We certainly found one in Kres's Chophouse. Our waiter was outstanding, low key, great service. He made a great wine recommendation. We both had the filet and both our meals were cooked exactly the way we ordered. I look forward to our next visit to Orlando because it will certainly involve Kres's.
