great service, average food

The service was top notch. Overall the food was a bit disappointing. The meat was not seasoned at all. It was cooked correctly. The pork chops were not what I expect at a steak house and I would not order again.

Hereford House is one of the best places to eat in the KC area. If you like steak and prime rib, then this is the place for you. They can cook a steak perfectly meduim rare every time and the prime rib is also cooked to perfection.

I take several people who are in their 80's and they have trouble hearing in today's noisy restaurants. We reserved one of their private rooms (I think there are 3) and it was perfect - we could easily carry on a conversation. The menu is so varied that a everyone can find just what they want. The waiter was excellent... More

Consistently excellent Food. Fresh and well prepared. I ordered room service and take out often as I was a long term guest in Hilton Garden Inn and it was always prepared with care no matter the situation.

Visited Hertford House restaurant a month or so ago. Planned early dinner around 6pm and was seated pretty quickly. Greated by a friendly server and was pretty responsive. Would say steak was average for Kansas City, but KC is known for great steaks and Bar-b-que. Best part of dinner was the carrot cake for dessert. It was absolutely outstanding. Would... More

Had lunch there and clearly the nicest restaurant in town. Would say it was a beef eater's delight but I found enough other to keep me happy. Staff couldn't be more kind, and the food was everything that you'd expect.

Great menu, decent service. The steaks are way overpriced and I'd question the talents of the chef staff on the particular night we were there. I had the Chicken & Andouille Soup and the Steak Salad. The soup was tasty but there was very little chicken or sausage in it and the steak tasted like fish, so I would assume... More

So, I ate here on a business trip because it was the closest restaurant to the hotel I was staying at...Every business traveler knows that good food is not a promise when you are in a new location and restricted in choices. I read the reviews for Hereford House, and they seemed mixed, but I took a chance. I decided... More
