    Everything about this steakhouse is top-notch. Modern clubhouse vibe with absolutely delicious food. Terrific service. Very comfortable.  we went for lunch and it was a tad busy and noisy with so many business people conversing at larger parties. But it actually added to the overall fund ambience. Highly recommend.

    A phenomenal experience! Being that I am vegan and my wife is not, it was a breath of fresh air to be able to fine dine and eat exactly what we want without compromise! My wife’s steak was cooked to perfection. I was very impressed with the vegan crab cake. I could not tell it was vegan to be honest. Our entire meal from appetizer to dessert was amazing! I highly recommend. Bring your coins, but you won’t regret it!

    Absolutely loved Kres. Went to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday and had the best time. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. Lobster bisque had chunks of lobster and was so creamy. The filet was cooked perfectly. We added wild mushrooms, crispy Brussels sprouts and Parmesan mashed potatoes. Also don’t skip on the White Chocolate Bread Pudding, it was so good!! Definitely will be back.

    The mashed potatoes were the star! Imagine that. The service was excellent from the server. A little disappointed that arrangements were trying to be made for my birthday but no one reached out. By the time the person decided to try them again they said it was too late. Kind of ruined the birthday plans. Plus they wouldn’t write “Happy birthday” on the dessert.

    This is our third dining experience here in the last month. Each time, better than the last. This time, we again shared the escargot to start. Our drinks were perfect, including their special Strawberry Lemon Drop martini. Filet and scallops were both cooked exactly as ordered. The asparagus was just done enough and the mashed potatoes were smooth and excellent. But the best part of all? White Chocolate Bread Pudding with warm whiskey glaze. Wow! Santiago was an attentive waiter, who made sure we would make our theater time. Can't say enough good things. And ready to go back.

    Celebrated a friend’s birthday and although we enjoyed it it wasn’t as good as the last time we went. Caesar salad and Brussels sprouts were just ok and the bread pudding tasted like a muffin. I’m sure I’ll be back hoping the ne t visit is better. Service was great as always.

    The night started off great. The bacon dressing salad was phenomenal. However, the menu did not describe the what was in some of the items ordered and the ingredients are pretty flavorful in that if you don’t like them they completely turn your stomach. Such as blue cheese I. au gratin potatoes. When expressed to the manager he was less than helpful offering a business card for a next visit. So essentially we paid $200 for a salad that we split and a half eaten steak. Would not recommend and will not go back

    I have had a better meal and better pricing at Coopers Hawk. The best Steak is at Capital Grille. I ordered a 16oz Ribeye at Kress and it was cooked perfectly but lacked flavor.Sides were a-la-carte and not worth the price. Ambiance was Great and felt intimate. Dress code made it more upscale. Oysters Rockefeller was our favorite. End of the day I spent around $250 for an Anniversary dinner but didn’t feel like I would be coming back for that price.

    Fantastic food and our server was amazing. Busy evening because of a show at Dr. Phillips and the arena. We were not rushed. However, why have a dress code if you are not going to enforce it. The young ladies in the table next to us were in "belly" shirts and tank tops, and ripped jeans.

    We can not say enough about our dining experience at Kres….we were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and everyone made us feel so special from the moment we arrived . We checked in about an hour before our reservation & as we waited not even 5 minutes for a table in the bar of which another very helpful staff member named DC reserved a hightop for us even with it being very crowded. We started with delicious cocktails served by Sarah taking care of us and that she did…..service and drinks were spot on with Jen the vegan chef coming out to introduce herself ! Once we were seated at our table we were greeted by our server “Canyon” who treated us like royalty along with the outstanding menu which also offers delicious vegan options made for a 10 plus plus experience ! Every dish served from the carpaccio to the vegan roasted grape toast onto the Beef Wellington then an amazing creme brûlée & champagne to top off our dinner was one of the most delicious through & through ! The creativity and quality of the food were outstanding along with amazing hospitality with Emilie, Heidi, the general manager & Jen, the vegan chef came to our table at the end to wish us Happy Anniversary and even got a photo with Heidi ! To sum it up the food and service reveals a team who obviously love the people they are serving to make for an evening celebrating our special anniversary one to remember!

    Outstanding in every way! Robert is a fantastic server. He provided an excellent wine recommendation. Classic shrimp cocktail is always a favorite. Here you also receive extra horseradish so you can get serious with the cocktail sauce if you desire. The three cheese au gratin is a must order. It’s the perfect side. The potatoes melt in your mouth as you savor an exciting cheese blend. We both had 8 ounce filets that were cooked exactly the way we each like! My filet was accompanied by the amazing sauteed mushrooms. The mushrooms have a nice hint of wine. Delicious! My dining companion’s steak was in the rouge blu cheese sauce. He was in heaven as a blu cheese lover. He used the house made sourdough to clean every drop of sauce from the plate. Did I mention the house made sourdough bread? Oh Yeah!! If you are in downtown Orlando, you definitely want to dine, at least once, at Kres Chophouse. I’m already planning our next visit.
