    Really good place to go and have dinner. Won't be cheap but for sure worth going. Service was great and knew about the food and drinks! One catch is they have a wine you want make sure it's in cups not just a bottle.

    Austin was our server and he was excellent. Drinks and rolls were served quickly and he checked with us several times. There was one lapse when we needed something and my husband had to slow down his eating waiting for Austin to return. My husband had the prime rib medium. He had a lot of trouble cutting his first bite. There was a huge section of gristle he couldn’t navigate around. I had the French Dip with a side of green beans. It was delicious. A little sparse on the meat but not unusual these days. We visit at least once a month. This was one of our best experiences so far.

    They were running about 10 minutes late on seating. My drink ran out a couple of times during the evening. The food was excellent and atmosphere was great for a nice Valentines day meal. Open table reservation was made same day and worked great!

    I come to herford house quit a bit and it's always amazing but for some reason, this night, the steak was very blan and u unflavorful. As a valentines dinner that really sucked. But the sides were great especially the cheesy corn and the carrot cake was wonderful! Service was excellent as well

    Superb food, excellent service, prices were exemplary of today's economy. We dined in a small, non-descript little room with absolutely no appeal or charm. Seating for maybe 10 people with 5 tables...no big deal, but not a memorable setting.

    The service was very slow. I'm guessing the kitchen was backed up. From the time we placed our order until the food showed up at our table 55 minutes elapsed. There were only 2 visits to our table during that time to check on refills.

    Our waiter got everything wrong. He asked us how our drinks were and my husband didn’t have his drink. The drink he brought my husband didn’t taste like the description. The second drink did taste like it should. Our dinners were brought out and they were wrong. Brought out right dinners and my steak was rare and I ordered medium. The second steak wasn’t as rare but still wasn’t medium. I kept it. The bill came and we were charged and extra $5 for the nerf and surf. We didn’t know there was an extra charge. We live in the neighborhood and have always had good service all the times we’ve been there. It was Valentine’s Day so maybe that explains the problems.

    For the most part with the group that I was with we had an enjoyable time. I truly believe they were understaffed, and it did take a while from the appetizer to the main course but our server did the best she possibly could and we were also happy for her to explain how the gratuity part worked before just being surprised when we seen the ticket. Overall, we will be back sometime.

    We had the happy hour menu. Food was good. The only change from the past is you could get a side salad at a reasonable price but now they charge $8 for the side. You must order from regular menu to get side salad at a reasonable price.

    Hereford House never misses! The service has always been great, as well as the food! The only thing I can even mention that might need attention is that it took a long time for our server to come to the table, but I know how busy that place can get, so I understand. When she did come, she was very pleasant!

    First time at Hereford House. Excellent food and service. The room we were seated in was a smaller off to the side room with three tables. The lighting was horrible and felt more like office lighting rather than a warm ambience. The outstanding food and service overcame the atmosphere.

    While the service remains historically intact in a positive way, the meal left a bit to be desired. My wife's broccoli was unseasoned and tasteless. The mushrooms I ordered were not very good at all, and the bearnaise sauce was, well, not bearnaise. My KC Strip was pretty chewy and tough. On the positive, the salmon was delightful. Dessert didn't fare well. The crème brûlée was more like Jello Instant Pudding with burnt brown sugar on top. Carrot cakewas dry, with grainy texture in the cream cheesecake on the end. HH has always been one of my favorite restaurants in the KC area. The quality of the food took a significant hit this trip.

    2 steaks under cooked Filet disgusting Hard to flag down waitress for any refills or more drinks. Never asked how our food was. Spent more time helping table next to us. When got her attention she helped the other table before coming back to see what we needed. Potatoes over cooked and dry. Charged $2 for ice. 20% gratuity charged and not earned.

    We had a group of 8 couples for our annual husband/wife dinner. I requested a round table so that we could have good conversation. Check that box. Got it. The food was excellent. We have the grilled salmon. About the best I've had. Others got steak. All of us agreed the food was delicious. Well done, HH!

    Were seated in the bar area, and it felt like being in someone’s basement- cold bright lighting, no music, dirty booth. Steaks were tough and sides were flavorless. We paid $$$ for this experience🤡
