The table beside us had a young child; they were entertaining him with video that was turned up loud.

Overall we enjoyed our dinner at Hereford House. We picked from the Valentines Day special menu and both enjoyed our entrees very much. We had the special Bread Pudding dessert which was fine but was served swimming in a sugary sauce. It would have been just fine with a little drizzle of the syrup instead. Our server, a nice young lady, was pleasant enough but didn't seem to know the menu well and was not very attentive to our table. She never cleared our plates and brought fresh drinks but left the empty glasses on the table. I expect more from the Hereford House.

Hereford House is my favorite restaurant and normally I have no trouble but they were out of bacon wrapped medallions and brownie dessert both of which I wanted specifically. This was on Valentine’s Day and the first day of the 2 can dine for $75, there is no reason they should have been out already! Very disappointed

We went on Valentine’s Day and had a reservation. We were sat within a few minutes of arrival. I heard them tell a walk in client that the wait was about 1.5 hours, so I’m glad they respected the reservation. The service was very good even though they were extremely busy. The appetizer was hot and fresh, the salads were fresh and cold, and the steaks were done perfectly and the sides were great. The carrot cake was phenomenal. Overall a very good value for a special occasion.

Disappointed no acknowledgement of our 38th wedding anniversary, all other restaurants when add comment / special occasion to OpenTable reservation request do nice job of acknowledging special occasions.
Food as always, very good. Service slow, however expected on Valentines day.

We had an issue with the béarnaise sauce. It wasn't as warm as it usually is at Hereford House. The staff was accommodating and condescending at the same time. I understand how this sauce is made, yet both waitress and manager felt the need to explain the cooking process to me. My point was that the sauce was cool, rather than the warm I am used to from this restaurant.

We ate here for a birthday and absolutely loved it. The food was delicious, the wait staff was very friendly and quick, and the restaurant was quiet. Would definitely go back. Also worth the higher pricing compared to other places.

Very good experience. Much improved over last few times. However, it is way to expensive. 12 dollars for a simple cocktail is ridiculous. 75 dollars for dinner for two is about 10 dollars to high. Lower prices and I would come more often

We would have preferred a better table as we were seated in a big room with a few big groups that had children. I work with children all day and was out with my husband for a long awaited date night and we were seated at the least preferred spot in the restaurant. Also, when we arrived 15 minutes early, the hostess informed us that we were early and would get a table when one was available. We were aware that we were early and she could have said that more politely. I wasn’t interested in attitude from her as I have three teens at home! Our waitress was fantastic and our food was great!

Unfortunately I would not recommend this restaurant. It was quiet. It started with our reservation was for 4 they seated us for 2. The server was friendly but not attentive at all. The food, the calamari was good, the shrimp cocktail very poor. For 16 dollars I could have gone to Walmart and got 3 bags of the same size shrimp. The main course was very very poor. Again for the price the quality of meat was poor and not cooked right or seasoned at all. My steak was ordered to be medium, it came out as rare so I sent it back. When they brought it back it was very well done. Not a very good experience for my first time there. I won’t be back.

I can’t say enough about this restaurant. I booked online, mentioned we were celebrating a birthday and had a toddler and nursing newborn in tow. We were seated in in a a smaller private dining room in a quiet corner. The manager Nick clearly knew how to give us the best dining experience possible. And whether it was planned or just good fortune, Sophia was the perfect server for our party. And one discerning guest thought his was the best bone-in Ribeye he has ever eaten. Thanks for giving our celebrant and us a wonderful dining experience.

Prime Rib and ceaser salad was fabulous. Had the twice baked potato. That was good, but a little dry. I prefer cheese whipped in with the potatoes and creamier. Prime Rib is the best of anywhere I've been.

We got there early for our reservation and the host did a wonderful job of moving people thru. The waiter was exceptional! I had asked for a quieter area for the person that was hard of hearing. That was met with a private booth. I had put in the comments that this was a birthday celebration and most restaurants will acknowledge that if they know it and at least say Happy Birthday to the person, but it was not acknowledged. It was a wonderful experience, wine was fantastic, food was great and we splurged on The White Chocolate Bread Pudding served Flambeed...Highly recommended! Fantastic place to relax and dine on a Friday night!
