Came to celebrate a 70th birthday before the Paul Simon concert. Beautiful decor, valet parking. We were welcomed warmly and seated at a lovely table. Al, our waiter was excellent and provided perfectly timed, friendly service. The menu is typical steakhouse, with a few extra items. We started with outstanding beef carpaccio, then had wedge and spinach salads. Both were great. The we had the BEST beef wellington ever, with a tender, perfectly cooked filet inside. This was our first visit to Kres, but we will be back. Just excellent!

Last day of the business trip I wanted to discover a mystery - why downtown Orlando is actually in the most northern part of the city!
I was not disappointed! More, after strolling and reviewing some of the places in the area I decided to enter Kres!
Excellent service, the waitress was extremely professional, pleasant, attentive and non intrusive. The owner/floor manager came in to check on the service, which one does not see very often.
After a fresh mozzarella and tomatoes, I delved into a delicious pork steak and belly! Food was as expected, cooked to perfection.
The Belgian white beer I accompanied my food was refreshing, as well.

My wife and I had a really nice steak dinner before an Orlando Philharmonic Concert at the Bob Carr. Good food. Good service.

Kres Chophouse is without a doubt one of my most favorite places to eat. From the time you walk in the door it has such a great vibe, no matter what day it is. It is generally very busy, so I do recommend making a reservation, but you there are some small tables in the bar area for two-somes. I have eaten in the bar and the main dining room and both are an equally excellent experience.
My wife and I ordered a bottle of wine that was excellent, as well as the entire meal which really was enough food. We ordered a ceasar salad to start and a 12 oz Filet with the cheesy au gratin potatoes. I am getting hungry even saying this, but every time we go the food is even more amazing each time; cooked perfectly and arriving hot. I really don't believe it gets any better than this. Every single staff member working goes above and beyond to ensure your being taken care of.

I had the 18oz Ribeye, Med, and my Father had the Duo of Duck, along with the Calamari for Entree. We had a couple of drinks and the total bill very acceptable. The staff were friendly and attentive. And Meals were superb.
It was one of the best steaks I have ever had in a restaurant. Juicy and flavoursome.
The $8 valet was of great value.
Should I be in Orlando again, I would definately be back. Thanks for a great Meal.
