We had a party of 8 and instead of sitting us within the same section they sat us far apart from each other . And then sat a party of two in the table near us . The cook also didn’t meet the internal cooking temp of the steaks we requested . I ordered a filet mignon mid well and it was medium and two other steak at my table was suppose to be well done and they were also medium . We let the server know it wasn’t correct but he only took care of one of the steaks . So I didn’t want to wait any longer for them to come back to correct mine so I just ate some of it. The noise level was great , good atmosphere but the cooks need to be trained better on steak temps .

What an amazing experience from start to finish for our 20th anniversary. John was incredible! Lobster bisque was delicious and the Wellington was mouthwatering. My husband loved his filet which was cooked to perfection. Can’t wait to return!!!

My wife and I dined at Kres to celebrate out 22nd wedding anniversary. We hadn’t been to Kres before but had wanted to for some time. We enjoyed our meals, our server Brandon gave us excellent service. I bought roses for my wife and they were placed on the table prior to our being seated.

I will recommend Kres to my friends and family. Thank you!

Enjoyed a lovely dinner with family, celebrating a birthday. We had a wonderful experience! Beautiful decor, excellent food, best filet I’ve ever had! We did not feel rushed, our server was attentive but not overly so, just enough. Manager stopped by the table to say hello, nice touch. I wold highly recommend Kres and we will definitely return!

Kres is a great gem in downtown Orlando. The food is of great quality and the ambiance is enjoyable. I think they target older customers, but I have seen younger people on romantic dates.
I am a repeated customer, and proud to support a non chain, privately owned establishment.

The food was amazing our server Mariah was also amazing, she explained the texture of the elk and the flavors of the sauce, my wife had the short ribs and loved the dish. We celebrated our anniversary and our server gave great service and a complimentary warm bread pudding, we’ve never tried that style of bread pudding so amazing definitely going back

We have been to Kres about four times and have been very impressed with menu and food selection. We went for our 30th anniversary and I ordered the grouper and my wife ordered the steak. Her meal was great, and my dinner was not, the Grouper was not tender and tasty and the accompanied vegetables specifically the greens were bitter. We did discover a red wine that was very good!

Went for anniversary dinner. It started off rocky with really bad service. Ordered wine and then dinner. Salad come , no wine, bread came, no wine.. no waiter on site. Then he finally showed and filled the water, asked for the wine. He was clueless. Had to go find the manager and he changed the waiter. Billy the new waiter was good and saved the evening. Just wish the manager gave the appearance of caring more or had done something to make us feel better. The food was good!

I love this Chop House but tonight walked away with disappointment. The New York Strip has always been beyond words yet tonight mine was undercooked , tough and full of uneatable toughness.

Just sad as I drive 2 hours to dine with this always great Steak House...

Great atmosphere, great service , great food .
The only issue I had was that the table next to me was 4 idiots all tattoo’d up wearing t- shirts acting like idiots , cursing loudly , on their damn phones watching videos that were loud and ruined the atmosphere because we could hear it over at our table .
I can’t really blame the restaurant for that but , I would like to see them enforce a dress code .

As a frequent guest of KRES we knew what to expect - excellent food and good service. Only one suggestion we would have -we had the amazing Julius Meinl Espresso for dessert. Unfortunately, saucers and cups were mixed, it’s to bad since the JM espresso cups/saucer are real eye catcher. Furthermore, serving a teaspoon with the espresso is a real culture shock! There is definitely room for improvement.

The food and ambiance was good; however, there were a few service failures. I'm not sure if the staff were new, but there were countless errors that could have been prevented. Our orders were miscommunicated, the food came out wrong, which prevented the party of 7 to eat all at once. The overall experience could have been better if there was more attentiveness to the table. Perhaps it could have been the larger party that threw the server off or she may have needed more help between the drink and specific food requests. Needless to say, there were more apologies than anything, we most likely will not return as a large group.

Everything about KRES was awesome. Our waiter, Rodney, was 10/10. He made us laugh and made the whole night very enjoyable. Will recommend this restaurant to everyone. In our party of 6 we had steak, fish, elk, and duck. All were delicious and prepared perfectly!
