I took my wife there and we both ordered a 3 course meal. Lobster soup, steak and a chocolate cake for dessert. Every thing was delicious and the service was great.

I was totally surprised and pleased to hear from the restaurant after I posted my initial review regarding our payment issues. They were shocked the issue had not been mitigated and took immediate action. Today I received a refund in the mail. Thank you so...much and I'm sorry if my review caused any problems. I now understand it was a matter of missed communications on your end.More

This restaurant is one of my favourites. I’ve been living here 3yrs and Hereford is always the first place to pop into my head. It was my birthday today and we reserved a table and I was so worried I was going to eat too...much before. Worried because I wanted to make sure I had all the stomach space for every bite of food. We were not disappointed. I ordered the surf n turf which was not my usual order, and my boyfriend got the beef fillet. We weren’t able to finish, but we took the rest home to enjoy (like right now). I’ve never written a review before, and the reason I am writing this is because the service we received was impeccable. The waiters personal service and attention made me both feel special and at home. I fully recommend this restaurant for anyone looking to dig into a good steak and to celebrate any special occasion. Their dessert is to die for!More

Our party of four had dinner at Hereford Steakhouse in late September 2019. We were overcharged for our dinner which I did not notice until we returned home and checked all of our receipts. I contacted the restaurant via email and received an answer saying...they would correct the overcharge of 4900 kroner. We were charged for a fifth entree and we were a party of four. I heard nothing so I again emailed requested a refund and received the same response. Again waiting to allow a couple of months to go by. I did not bother to contact them again as I am sure they were just giving me the runaround. Just be sure to check you billing before you leave the premise. Not al all pleased,More

Six of us ate here and were all in agreement it was just superb. I think we all ate the rib eye and it was the best. They served us bread baskets and I was more than happy to have it. Delicious. The various potato...options chips , mash etc again were perfect. The waiters were a cut above and were friendly and professional. Couldn't fault it.More

Myself and my partner visited this steak house during our stay in Reykjavík this week. We were greeted without a ‘hello’ or ‘welcome’, and were told immediately to sit at the bar, with no explanation and without telling us how long the wait was. A...group entered after us and asked how long the wait was, and the host shrugged his shoulders and rudely said “I don’t know”. After a 10 minute wait we were showed to our table in silence, the waitress did not introduce themselves at all, and did not explain the ordering process to us (write your order on a ticket on the table). When the food arrived, my steak was not cooked to the temperature I had asked (medium) and came more rare. When I informed the host, he did not say a word and removed the plate from the table. He came back after a few minutes and asked how I would like it to be cooked. I told him medium, and he responded “you want it well done then”, I said no, I want it medium, he then said “I will ask for it to be medium well”. When it came back from the kitchen, it was correct, and was actually very nice. Overall, this restaurant is a bit too pricey, and the staff are not welcoming or friendly. I would not recommend.More

We went with a safe ribeye steak, it was perfectly cooked and delicious. The restaurant had a good atmosphere and nicely decorated, the staff were very attentive throughout and offered good advice for our stay here. It is a little pricey, but no more than...others we have seen so far.More

Great place to try different meals. We tried the Puffin meat and was really fabulous. Would recommend to try this place as a treat while you are in Reykjavik.
