Great steaks, oysters and escargot. Side dishes are more average.

Staff polite and attentive.

Food was some of the best food we've experienced in Florida. Love the cuisine and presentation. The environment was spot on, fun, energetic and lively. Didn't feel like an old steak house at all. The server, while very nice was extremely slow and had no personality. When we asked for recommendations he told us that it was typical steak and potatoes. It was anything but. Will be back, but we will definitely be mindful of who serves our table.

Service was great until we got to dessert. Maybe the kitchen got backed up, but we waited a long time. It only mattered because we were trying to get to a show. The food is amazing!

Keisha was an excellent server. The 8oz Filet and mash potatoes were delicious. The Roasted Duck had good flavor but the breast was definitely dry, the thigh and leg were tender. First time here. Nice environment for sure. Everyone in the restaurant was very pleasant.

We felt rushed from the moment we arrived. We had a reservation and arrived early, were ushered to a table right in front, looking at the street. It was our 49th anniversary dinner and we felt we were in their way all evening. We enjoyed the meal, but our evening was not as much fun as we had hoped. We likely will find another place to celebrate the next time. If we wanted to be treated like we were at Wendy's, we would have gone there and saved about $110.

My husband and I visited for the first time for our anniversary and we really enjoyed everything about Kres. I found out about it on google when I searched for romantic restaurants. It was beautiful and very classy. The lights dim, the decor in red and black, a rose on each table and candles lit everywhere, it was perfect for the occasion. The food was AMAZING. We had the oyster Rockefeller , chicken quarter meal and a NY strip steak meal. Everything was perfect and the service was great too! Thank you so much 😊

Having dined at Kres in the past we were excited to return to celebrate two birthdays but in the end none of us really enjoyed our food and the service was only fair. I think we’ll pass on a return visit.

Slightly hard to find and you'll have to pay for parking. The food is just a little overpriced for the quality of what you're getting. Amazing wine list.

Service and food - Superb!!! Thought it was an upscale restaurant and we were shocked that the bar had TVs playing the basketball games - folks at the bar cheering. Very annoying for a special, romantic dinner.

Competes with some of Orlando's best steak houses. Wife and I celebrating a birthday. She had the Beef Wellington I had the 8 oz. fillet with the mushroom caps. Both entree's delicious. 2 sides, the Parmesan mashed potatoes and grilled crispy Brussels sprouts served family style - both had great flavor and texture we had way more food than we could have ever eaten. High ceilings so its a bit noisy, Decent wine list, had some wine choices that didn't break the bank. Coffee came in a French press (pitcher). Overall an excellent dinner, pricey as expected, I would go back.

Pretty setting with great food. Service was ok, but the servers’ warm personalities and desire to help made up for their lack of professionalism.

First time at Kres and we are hooked. Great food, great service, and nice ambiance. We had Brussel sprouts as an appetizer (try them!) and the small filet mignon with a salad. Both steaks were done perfectly (medium and medium rare) and the salads were substantial. Our server, Kevin, was very knowledgeable about the menu and made excellent recommendations. He was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. His knowledge of the local area was also greatly appreciated and helped us enjoy our evening. We recommend this restaurant highly. Exceedingly convenient to garage parking (we did not use the valet service as it is not available before 6 pm) as well as Church Street venues like the Mad Cow Theater. You can access the valet parking even when Church Street is closed for the evening.

We love this restaurant when we are in downtown Orlando for a concert, show, night out ... when ever we are looking for a great meal. It is actually one of the few places right downtown that we enjoy. It is also great for after the show, etc to go pick up a great dessert! My favorite is the bread pudding!
Service is always great and they have a great bar with great crafted cocktails!

Wonderful place to eat before going to Dr Phillips Center for a show. Both the service and the food was outstanding. The lobster bisque was so tasty! The spinach salad with hot bacon dressing topped with steak was delicious! Also enjoyed a mojito with dinner! Perfect meal! Highly recommend eating here.
