The server was great in the beginning and then and food was great. And I showed we had a KC original gift certificate we would be using at the beginning. And then came time to pay and I guess the server didn’t know how to get the gift certificate off my phone so she called over the manager, which was very rude and she took my phone and wrote down the number to the gift certificate and then she proceeded to treat us rudely and then she came back with a bill and she never once asked us how the meal was or thanked us for coming in. All in all we will not be going back to the Hereford House because of the way we were treated at the end of the meal.

Food quality was only average, it wasn't bad but did not impress me, it was far less that I expected.
The service was adequate but nothing special. I over heard another servers presentation and it was far better than our service.

The Herford House is renown as a classic, classy...this visit did not disappoint. We dined from the fixed price 4-course dinner, and that was an excellent choice!! From the calamari appetizer (which was a quite generous -- and delectable -- shared portion); to the 2nd-course salads; through to the prime rib and salmon entrees and concluding with the strawberry shortcake...the meal was superb!!
Our server, Tina, was first-rate. She was pleasant, explained things clearly, was attentive but not overbearing, and paced the meal perfectly. The support servers were similarly competent and contributed to an excellent evening out.

My husband and I have been coming to Hereford house for every special occasion for the last 5 years or so. We haven’t had a bad experience. One thing that my husband was upset about was the fire roasted corn had peppers and onions in it because his expectation was that it was just corn. He’s kinda picky but other than that we had a very nice anniversary dinner. We love love the white chocolate bread pudding too. We will definitely be coming back for more special occasions

I ordered the Cowboy Ribeye medium rare and it was served medium and it was smaller than I expected thus at $50+ this wasn't a good value and far from the best steak I've had. The salad dressings were too sweet and there were only 3 choices. The stuffed mushrooms were awful, no flavor. Overall not a good meal and at $200+ for the 2 of us not a memorable experience. But the waiter was very nice, efficient and professional.

Poor service ( forgotten drinks, entrees, spilled mushrooms on chair ) . Poor meal preparation ( steaks not cooked as ordered and had to be redone).
Really turned a birthday celebration into a fiasco that I’m sure we will laugh about someday.
But for tonight, all we can say is it’s so sad that a once good restaurant has fallen so far

A shame they have let their service go. It starts with poor management. The managers walk around but ignore obvious issues such as waiting 50 mins for any food to get to out table. This has happened two visits in a row. 65 mins to get an appetizer the last visit. Steaks were perfect but not worth waiting 1.5 hours to get. Hate to say this will be our last visit after going 6-10 times a year.

The food was perfect, fresh and delicious! It was Mother's Day so the kitchen was behind but our waitress warned us as soon as she came to get our drink order that it might take a while. We were fine with the wait as we knew the holiday would make it busy. The staff was wonderful and attentive considering how busy they were and the food was some of the best I've had at Hereford House. Will be going back again soon!
