KRES CHOPHOUSE Ratings and Reviews
I do not think I have enough good things to say about my experiences at Kres. The service was exceptional, open, friendly and very enthusiastic. The food was perfectly cooked and balanced with the seasoning. The atmosphere was modern and sexy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.
I cant give this place enough stars. This was my first time to Kres and was taking my girlfriend out for Valentine's Day. Our waiter was great and had superb recommendations. The food was phenomenal! Probably the best calamari I've ever had. I then had the 12 Oz filet. It was ridiculously good. My lady had the grouper and was super pleased. I will definitely be back. Overall I give it an A++.
Steaks are aged for 90 days, tender and excellent flavor. Hubby had the NY prime cooked perfectly to medium with delicious outer seared grill marks. I had the small fillet mignon which I prefer a medium well cook. They butterflied the filet and it was cooked perfectly. We had the spinach salad, brussel sprouts, and au gratin potatoes and all were very good. we saved room for the white chocolate bread pudding and it was out of the world. Best meal I have ever had.
Kres Chophouse is one of my favorite little Orlando gems downtown. Not too many people know about this upscale wonder with its bold red interior and New York feel. The menu is what I would expect from a higher end restaurant, the prices reasonable, and the food never fails to impress me. This is one of my favorite spots for a date or special occasion.
Our experience at Kress Chophouse was excellent. The menu is updated daily with new items and fresh seafood catches. There was a nice wine list as well. The restaurant was very clean and although full was fairly quiet which made it easy for conversation.
Our server was very professional and well versed on the menu and the restaurant's specials. Due to the location, we were specifically asked if we had theater tickets and what time we would like to conclude our meal. He made sure that we kept on time and made it comfortably to the show on-time.
I would highly recommend Kress Chophouse for either a special occasion, date night or get together with friends!
Delicious meals and desserts!! party of 6 ordered calamari(excellent) salads, Wellington, grouper, filet, truffle fries, mac & cheese, crispy brussel sprouts, crème brulle, cheesecake &
bread pudding and special coffees. Everyone Really enjoyed everything, meals were hot and I must mention even the bread and butter was very nice!! Glad we came before a show at Dr. Phillips service was Great with Allen and flowed perfect! Thank You
Orlando had a lot going on on Saturday, January 28, Wicked, Pro Bowl, etc...The restuarant was very busy. Our server tried to make it a pleasant experience but she walked away in the middle of taking our drink order and then again while taking our food order to place the food on another table. She was apologetic but for the $$$ you expect great service.
Our reservations were at 6:15 and we arrived promptly and were seated right away. The performance of Wicked started at 8:00 and they were doing curtain called as we arrived.
I would go back, the food was excellent.
We love everything about Kres Chophouse!! My boyfriend had the filet and it was melt in your mouth delicious!! I had the filet Wellington...and it did not disappoint. If we went back the next day, I'd order it again!! The service is the best without being obtrusive. The manager came by and called us by name, which is a nice touch. We will be back!!!
We've come to the Kres Chophouse for over seven years. Great steakhouse in Downtown Orlando. We come to at least one Magic game per year from Tampa Bay. This year was no exception for my birthday. Always stay at the Kessler Grand Boheme Hotel. However, this year, we see there is Australian Lobster Tail on the menu and elected to split that with a 12 oz. Filet for a nice Surf and Turf. Everything else was fine until we got the bill. $120 alone for the Lobster? Really? And no heads up from the waiter who ran off as fast as he could! Scammed. Never coming back. Really a shame. We've had many a great meal there. Very disappointed that they now stoop this low. I've never paid that much for any lobster at the best Lobster Houses in the country. Ridiculous and pitiful. Too many rich basketball players I guess now visiting the place! Beware.
Everything was good , just good. We were hoping for a little more in the dining experience. From the friendly but young , ditzy and inexperienced hostesses to our table not being crumbed until after our dinner course they just miss something. It is a loud place and our seats were up against a slightly higher section of the dining floor divided by a railing. Unfortunately the guests on the upper section tended to hang over the rail...maybe the addition of a higher rail or a glass panel on top of the rail would help define the space some. The food was good, again just good, no wow factor, no can't wait to tell your friends stuff. Pricing was high but in-line not ridiculous like the early version of Bobby Flay's in Atlantic City.
