    Amazing food, amazing service! My husband is a steak snob, and he said his Pittsburgh-rare steak was the best he’s ever had, and we’ve been to all the high-end steak restaurants in central Florida. We will definitely be back!

    DON’T GO HERE IF YOU LIKE GOOD STEAK AND GOOD MANAGEMENT - I ordered a ribeye but was served a ny strip. When I said it was tough, the server informed me that the kitchen said you shouldn’t order a ribeye less than medium because it needs to be cooked longer to render the fat and make it tender (not only is this a crazy thing to be told at a steakhouse, but they did not realize they had served a ny strip instead of a ribeye). The server offered a filet instead. The filet came out off-color and mealy. I ended up only eating the potato gratin for dinner. When I got the bill, I saw it was ny strip instead of ribeye and nothing was comped except for the steaks I didn’t eat. Rather than apologizing for getting my order wrong or trying to recover the experience, the manager, John, was condescending and offensive and asked where to lay the blame. In the end, he only took the potatoes off the bill. John has no business managing a restaurant and the owners would be wise to remove him.

    We had a Filet Wellington (pastry encased Filet M) and a RibEye: both exceptionally good. The RE was quite tender which is unique for this cut. Kres cuts and sells meat (how they survived CCP virus lockdowns) as well as having a delightful restaurant so the beef is to-die-for! Only negative was a cool Hot Spinach and Bacon salad though it was very, very good. Wine selection was mid-range, most delectable but quite pricey. We will definitely return before we leave Orlando.

    Highly disappointed! Arrived 25 minutes early to our reservation (due to no traffic delays) and was told we had to wait closer to our reservation time. They cleared the whole lobby and we still waited 10 minutes past our reservation time to get seated (after inquiring again at the hostess stand). Saw the server for our order and then towards the end of the meal when we were about ready for the check and she brought the steak topping out. Filet was undercooked and not flavorful, added the topping to try to help and it went from bad to worse. This isn’t the Kres it used to be. Neither the Service or the food were good. A lot of money spent for a bad experience.

    When the reservation was made I indicated it was a birthday dinner and Kres made sure we would be spoiled. We were seated at a lovely table for two that overlooked Church Street. Our server was very attentive and upon greeting us acknowledged the special occasion. He also let us know that dessert will be on the house. My husband and I shared the Filet Wellington and it was fabulous. The meat melted in our mouths. The birthday dessert of warm bread pudding was served with a scoop of the best vanilla ice cream.

    Always exceptional service, food and ambience. I will forever be a customer for Kres! I had the octopus and shrimp appetizer, half duck entree and crème brûlée dessert. The food was well seasoned and cooked to perfection literally not a flaw in sight. Management frequented the table to make certain we were ok. That’s what makes people come back. Can’t wait to go again.

    My wife (a professional chef) and I enjoy fine dining on a somewhat regular basis, and are no strangers to good food. That being said, Kres definitely delivered. From the time we came in, the staff was attentive and knowledgeable, and we were seated with zero wait. We had the calamari to start, as well as sourdough bread and house made butter. For our entree, my wife had the vegan “chicken” parm, and it was nearly impossible to distinguish it from real meat/cheese. I had the 12 oz filet mignon. It was cooked perfectly, the flavors were beautiful, and the truffle fries we shared complimented everything amazingly. For dessert, we shared the vegan “brookie” which was absolutely INCREDIBLE. I wish we could have eaten the whole thing, but at this point we were fairly stuffed. Between the hasty and knowledgeable staff, and the perfectly executed beautiful food, we have a new favorite restaurant. A+

    Rodney was the absolute professional and the best. We definitely want to recommend him anytime we decide to go back. The food was outstanding. We ordered a strip and a ribeye and they were both amazing. The mixed drinks were very fresh. But wasted Rockefellers were absolutely tasty. The scalloped potatoes were cooked very well and very flavorful. And the roast of mushrooms were awesome. Again, Rodney was a great experience!

    Worst experience of my life. The manager Hilda was extremely rude. The server Brandon started off nice but towards the end became very judgmental of us all. I felt as if we were being stereotyped due to our race and they made the environment extremely uncomfortable. I will not be returning and it was the worst $150.00 I have ever spent.
