Farm-to-Table Global cuisine in a relaxed contemporary setting. We support sustainability.
Reservations required for Taste Cress. At Cress we have eliminated gratuity; our dinner, counter, brunch, and wines menus are all-inclusive except for Florida State sales tax.
Cress Restaurant's Dual Concept:
Taste Cress is dining experience wherein we will offer 3-course, FiVe Course, and Chefs' Tasting menus (with or without wine pairings). Taste Cress is an engaged dining experience where Chef Hari and his Sous Chef lead you from start to finish by not only cooking your food a la minute, but also greeting you, taking your order, and serving you each course with Sommelier Jenneffer. So, every guest who experiences Taste Cress is essentially at our Chef's Table!
For a la carte, visit Counter Cress which is our casual counter/bar for a menu studded with a few Cress Classics from over the past seven years. We do not take reservations for Counter Cress.

Excellent service and cuisine. The Charcuterie and the rangers valley wagyu had a lovely presentation and tasted even better.
