Servers and manager were standing around by the bar talking politics and the results of the Rittenhouse case and how they thought he should have gone to jail and about gun laws. We really did not need to hear that conversation during our meal.

The service was great overall. My wife steak was well done and she ordered it medium well.. My chicken fried steak was amazing. The appetizer was great. And the steak soup was delicious.

Enjoyed the food and the ambience, however this time the service was not up to par. Our waiter seemed to be overwhelmed by the amount of tables he was responsible for. My lemonade was empty and he filled it with water. I had to ask for another lemonade.

Hereford House was a perfect restaurant for a cozy 10th anniversary dinner. Delicious and reasonably priced 4 course meal for two plus some cocktails. Hostess and waiter made a point to wish us a happy anniversary repeatedly. Would definitely return and recommend to all.

Visited for a special birthday dinner. The kitchen noise was awfully loud and several times it was so loud it interrupted or conversation. Service was lacking, didn't get wine until third time we asked, and food was good but not up to Hereford House standards. Thought we had picked a nice restaurant with nice ambiance for a special night out but ended up being no better than a standard bar & grill experience for three times the cost.

We went for Veterans Day dinner. Things were fine until our entrees were served. I ordered the salmon dinner and after carefully eating half of my salmon and finding 4 2” bones I decided to stop. I brought it to the attention of our server who sent the manager over. He said they didn’t debone the fish there. Someone called “they” do it before it comes. I explained that I didn’t want to eat any more as I didn’t want to eat a bone. He offered to bring me a couple of shrimp or a small piece of salmon. Really? He never offered to replace my meal or comp it. He acted like it was no big deal to find bones in the salmon and his offers seemed petty for an expensive restaurant. He did send a dessert for free. It didn’t feel like we were in a nice restaurant where we were paying $26 for an entree. The manager was not apologetic and acted line we were trying to rip them off. (Like I carry 4 salmon bones in my purse!) Not sure we’ll think of Hereford House the next time we have a special occasion. Very disappointed in the attitude and service.

Sometimes it’s a “hit and miss” with the steaks. But the steaks were absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection!! We had a top notch waitress by the name of Linda A. who gave us the best service ever. I wanted to tell the manager about her when we left but he was busy and I didn’t want to interrupt him. We were celebrating the birth of our first grandson and Linda A made the evening great for us.

Our expectations were high, as we were there to celebrate. The honey wings appetizer was tasty, but dry. Both our steaks were cooked to the desired temperatures, but the seasoning / marinade was awful it overwhelmed the natural flavor if the meat. My lobster was terrible. It came out looking and tasting soggy. The asparagus and steamed veggies were the best part of my meal. It was the worst experience we've ever had there. We were also told by a manager that their recipes had changed for the third time and several patrons had complained and were not impressed. We were seated in the bar area and our waiter was inattentive to say the least. He never once filled our water glasses.

This was our anniversary night out. The food was very good and we enjoyed it very much. Linda our waitress was fantastic. We really enjoyed her. She was helpful and very good in conversation with us. Overall it was a great experience. The first time we have eaten at Herford House was back in 1968 downtown. That was the night I proposed to my wife. Herford House has always been a great restaurant.
Thanks

Not sure what happened to this restaurant, but the food was horrible, I asked for lightly season on my steak and it came out just as if I didn't make the request, the food just isn't what it's used to be, overall very disappointed with taste of food as well as service.

It was our Anniversary dinner and we were prepared for a nice, quiet dinner with great service and food. It was quite the opposite. Our server was awful! He barely said a word to us all evening, and when my husband ordered another round of drinks, he brought him his beer but no wine for me. When my husband told him he forgot my wine, no apology was given, no word was spoken. We were seated close to the kitchen and all we could hear was banging and yelling from the kitchen. Also, I had decided to change my order right at first, but we were charged for both of the orders I had made. My husband told him about this, and again NO apology. Perhaps if we hadn't been seated by the kitchen and we had had a decent server, things might have been better. The food was okay. My husband's ribeye was good, but my Cod was just so so. My Ceasar salad had way too much dressing on it for me. We won't be going there again ever!

Very good food for the value. Our server did not check on us much . She was standing with another server at the booth next to us, looked over and saw that we had a plate empty and at the end of the table signaling it could be taken away and another server came by several minutes later to get it. He wasn't our server but he was going by and saw it and picked it up anyway. Good for him! Otherwise, our experience was great!

From the minute we walked in & was greeted by the host was Wonderful. He sat us in a quiet area which was perfect. Our Waiter Mike was Outstanding & his recommendations were terrific. NY strip was Excellent & the Prime rib was the best I've ever had. Out of all the places we could have chosen for dinner in Kansas City the restaurant & the waiter was Top Notch. We look forward to returning the next time we are in KC.

My first visit for dinner at this location as I usually frequent Independence but had a delightful waitress by the name of LINDA who is very attentive and caring.

Our food was very good our dessert was very good and our coffee and drinks were wonderful.
