Food was excellent, service was fabulous. We were going to the theater, but had plenty of time. Our server was attentive, but let us move at our pace making for a very memorable evening. If a six was available as a rating, that is what I would have chosen.

I usually have the elk cooked medium rare, which is one the savoriest slices of meat seared to perfection. Unfortunately they were out this evening, so I decided to be adventurous. I’m not vegan, but their three-course vegan menu will blow your mind & tastebuds. One of the best dinners I have ever enjoyed. Though the menu changes, if you have the chance to try the crab cake, veal, and pumpkin cheesecake- I highly recommended it.

Always a wonderful meal at Kres, with fantastic/attentive service, delicious choices and lively atmosphere. Quality (it's not cheap) is worth the price and the wine list has some surprisingly amazing deals. Definitely check it out for happy hour/pre concert or special occasion.

Continue to enjoy my experience at Kres. Lindsey and Heidi were amazing at the bar, as always. Food was great, and although the wine collection is not extensive, I’ve continued to find a hidden gem each time. Also, accommodate gluten-free nicely. Highly recommend.

Love Kres for a great steak but they are also very good with their other special meals and seafood so don't think it is just a great steak house. I really like the quiet ambiance versus so many newer restaurants that look great but have nothing to absorb sound. Great wine list too.

My husband and I love Kres. We decided to go this past weekend for date night. The ambiance is cozy and quiet. The service is always excellent and the staff does an excellent job of making suggestions on dining and drinking options!

Everything I have tried at Kres has been wonderful. The steak has never been tough and it’s always very flavorful. All of the sides I have had have been very tasty as well(Brussel Sprouts and Au gratin potatoes are my favorite). Lastly, the white chocolate bread pudding is a MUST TRY!! We will definitely be back!

We had an amazing dining experience at Kres this past weekend. The service was phenomenal and the food was exceptional. We visited for a birthday and even though the dining room was energetic, multiple people were helping each table and a glass was never empty. The dessert was fantastic and worth saving room for, especially the white chocolate bread pudding. The whole experience was outstanding and we would go back time and time again!

Our first experience at Kres and it was wonderful! We were able to make a reservation (definitely recommend, tough to try and walk in especially on the weekends) and were seated immediately upon arrival. We had the wagyu carpaccio, beef Wellington, and lobster macaroni and cheese and everything was delicious! We went before a show at Dr. Phillips Center and they provided a "food valet" where they place your leftovers and/or to-go items in their fridge for you to pick up after the show - what an amazing service to offer! We will absolutely be back!

This was our first time visiting KRES. We where headed to a play at the Dr. Phillips Center. The food and service were impeccable and they made certain that we were finished in time for the theater. It is also a short walk from the restaurant to the Dr. Phillips Center.

We returned because the food was so good the first time we went.

This time around we had two of our favorites - calamari and bread pudding. The fried calamari comes accompanied with pickled peppers which are a great complement and add spice and flavor to the calamari. The bread pudding is the best we have ever had. The sauce that is drizzled on the bread pudding enhances the taste.

Since we were there for lunch, we had the shrimp louis salad (Grilled Jumbo Gulf Shrimp, Romaine-Bibb, Hard Boiled Egg, Cherry Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Red
Onions, Capers, Louis Dressing) and crispy fish sandwich (Crispy Mahi, Brioche, Fennel Slaw, Sweet Potato Fries, Horseradish Dipping Sauce). Both dishes were outstanding.

We celebrated my birthday with family in town from Chicago. We chose Kres and were all so pleased we did. My family was very satisfied with their steaks and I was absolutely amazed by my vegan entree, the “beef” Wellington. They have an extensive and delicious vegan menu! The service was great, the bread pudding was to die for, the specialty mixed drinks were incredible. We spent a lot of money but it was worth it, everything was perfect.

We don’t live in Orlando but visited Kres 5 years ago and have been dying to go back. Our 2nd trip to Kres did NOT disappoint! We had the beef carpaccio for appetizer and spinach salad...both phenomenal! Filet was cooked perfectly medium. Nice crust, hot pink in the middle and exceptionally tender! You can’t leave without trying the bread pudding! To die for from someone who generally doesn’t order dessert. Shout out to Rodney our waiter...thank you for great service!

Our server Caleb was fantastic and made sure everyone was happy and taken care of. The food and drinks came out beautifully and everyone was very happy, and full, with their meal. Our server brought out the Vegan menu after hearing that I was happy there was a vegan burger on the regular lunch menu! The atmosphere was perfect for our business meeting. Thank you!

I would like a choice for the chicken to be grilled not just all the gravy or smothering.

All the other food dishes and service was excellent.
