Diner Reviews
  • "What a memorable dining experience--everything was perfect from beginning to end. Voluminous wine list, however, we opted to carry in our wine and pay the reasonable corkage fee. The sommelier promptly chilled our sparking and opened/aerated our 16-year old Cab, to enjoy with dinner. I've been red-meat free for quite some time, but my visit to Press prompted me to order their succulent steak as a treat to myself--no regrets. Cozy outdoor seating with hearth; well stocked bar serving top shelf libations (hello Hangar One bourbon!), wait staff was superb. A bit pricey but YOLO and Press is definitely splurge-worthy."

  • "It seemed as if they had forgotten about our food! We did not order appetizers, and it took an hour for the food to come out!"

  • "Located in St Helena, Press restaurant delivered a near perfect dining experience. The wine list was the star, and the beautifully prepared food was a harmonious accompaniment. We paired cold cucumber soup with several whites by the glass before enjoying chicken for two and a split of Bond Vecina 2009. A single slice of Valhrona chocolate cake proved a great finish to the meal. The room at sunset was glowing, and the servers were knowledgeable and gracious at all times."

  • "I am always a little cynical when it comes to steak-centric restaurants especially given the reviews I read before visiting. Our experience was a memorable one and I'll definitely make it back for another visit. The service was warm, friendly and just attentive enough. I especially thank the sommelier who pointed us in the right direction on several very reasonably bottles from the extensive list. The steaks were sublime and cooked to perfection and of the family style sides try the creamed kale. For desert we shared a soufflé as the perfect ending to the meal. The restaurant had great energy; the room a great mix of modern barn with just the right touch of elements that make you feel like you are in wine country!"

  • "Have driven past many times and finally made it for dinner. We started with a cocktail in the lovely "outdoor room". Restaurant has a light rustic but hip vibe. Loved the ambience. Overall, food was very good but would expect nothing less as we made pretty basic selections... Chopped salad, Shrimp cocktail, Filet mignon. Steaks were ordered medium but one was on the well side and one on the rare side. Luckily, we swapped and were happy. Soggy fries - inexcusable! Chocolate soufflé was superb, ordered at the time of ordering entrees, but arrived very, very late to the table so I think she forgot it. The service was not very attentive. Shout out to the female sommelier - loved her! Expensive, tasty and will definitely return."

  • "We dined for my boyfriend's birthday and it was absolutely fantastic. From the 2010 Saintsbury Pinot Noir to Crab/Lobster cakes to the FIlet with Mushrooms and don't get me started on the truffle mac n cheese!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They even brought him a slice of cheesecake that wasn't on the menu because it is his favorite, very kind of them! We had a wonderful time and just can't wait to go back and sit outside!"

  • "Took my family here on a Monday night. As requested, we got seated outdoor right in front of the fireplace - which is the best table in the house in our opinion. Cannot be happier with the food and the service. Thank you Press for a great night :)"

  • "We always come here for the 4th and this year especially the food was more than outstanding!! Bravo to the chef and his staff. The waitstaff was great."

  • "The food was great. Wine was good. Service was on point. One of the wine cellars we visited recommended the bacon appetizer. It wasn't on the main dining room menu, just the bar menu, but our server said we could still get it. It was well worth the calories. After all, it was vacation. We ate every ounce of it. Salads are big, even the side salads. Steaks are spot on. Yum!"

  • "We were really looking forward to dinning ar Press. Ordered a couple salads and appetizers, followed with steak dinner: filet mignon, ribeye, as well as the grass fed bavette, finished up with chocolate soufflé, strawberry shortcake...etc. Well, regardless how it tasted, at least 2 of the 5 of us had the runs within 2 hours, and one of us had excruciating stomach pain. Now on to the food, it's relatively pricy, 8oz steak for about $35~$48 depending on the cut. Is it worth it? We have had better and cheaper. Definitely not memorable. The highlight of the night was actually the coffee, rich and creamy. It's from a local coffee company in San Francisco. If you are looking for the best steak of your life, this is not the place, sorry... My 2c."

  • "If you are interested in enjoying the best steaks in Napa Valley in a crisp, bright and enjoyable setting you must hurry and book a table at Press. The food, service and surrounding are wonderful. Start with the Press G&T and the rest will fall into place. The meat selection is a bit pricey but the buttery, smokey taste makes it all worthwhile. You can pass on the Fruit and Veggie salad but the must have Chocolate Dessert is a great cap to an almost perfect meal."

  • "This is one (of many) of our favorite restaurants in the Napa Valley. Although the new Chef (as expected) seems to be putting a new spin on things. We started with the Half Maine Lobster Cocktail ($21) which was good, but not great. We then had the Little Gem Chopped Salad ($16) which used to be a fantastic salad, until they messed with it. We then shared the Hanger Steak ($40) with the Truffle Butter and a side of Sauteed Mushrooms, all good, but not a $40 Hanger Steak (of all cuts)! Also had the Potato Cake ($11) which was decent, but a little dry. We ended with the Sundae ($13) it was very bland and light on toppings. I ordered a Capuccino and it was very weak / flavored water . . . New Chef or Off Night . . . or Both . . . not sure ?!"

  • "One of my favorite restaurants in Napa, with the valley's best wine list. Spectacular service, wonderful ambience, a perfect place for a special occasion."

  • "The food along with the service was exquisite. Our gulf shrimp cocktail was amazing. I highly recommend the truffle Mac...We split a 24oz. dry aged ribeye that had a cheery wood char to die for. We are already planning our next reservation...."

  • "We went to celebrate my birthday and it was amazing food. It didn't feel stuffy though the food was out of this world. So good! Definitely will go back when I'm in napa again."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Don't bother. This place is overpriced and pretentious. We were so looking forward to trying it on our trip to the Valley ... and are sorry we did. We were seated at a lousy table (even though we made the reservation weeks in advance and the place was 1/2 full); the service was lacking in attentiveness; the steaks were not cooked properly; and the menu was incredibly limited for anyone who doesn't want a huge chunk of meat (with no evening special from the chef). With the very high prices, there's simply no excuse - especially in this competitive region for great restaurants."

  • "I try to visit every time I'm in Napa. Love it. Favorite among vintners as well."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "I felt I was in the wrong place. Busy night, but should not be an excuse for the experience I had. 1/2 hour wait for appetizers. The anticipation of the Rib Eye Steak, aged, oak fire grilled, medium rare, would be worth the another 1/2 hour wait for my steak. So disappointed when I was served a odd shaped hunk of meat. It resembled the end cut of a Tri-Tip. I cut into it and it was grilled on the outside, but the center was raw and uncooked. I would have asked for a re-fire, but the waitress took 15 minutes to come back and check on our food. I did not want to be wait again, so I ate the side dishes, and asked to just take the steak home. The server forgot and they threw it away. Very expensive mistake, all I got was "Sorry""

  • "This was a great place. Not only were their steak excellent but their appetizers at the bar are also very good. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Press is one of the truly hot spots of Napa, frequented as is it by vintners and well-to-do visitors. Under new (about a year) manager Spencer Weiss and new chef (a couple of weeks) Trevor Kunk, Press is concentrating more on using regional produce and livestock to create a truly Napa expereince. The food, always excellent, may be even better than before. Do not miss the chef's version of beef tartare, and even if you don't usually order chicken when going out, this is the place to make an exception. Of course Press is known for its beef and the reviews there are also exemplary. The bar is one of the most creative, the all Napa wne list fabulous in choice and vintages, and the service is always friendly and professional. A wonderful stop."

  • "The restaurant had very good food and comfortable atmosphere. You did feel rushed by the waitress and sommelier. That's very distracting when you put $500 down on a dinner for two. It your in a hurry it's the place for you. If you like o take your time go somewhere else"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "We decided to dine here based on the recommendations of several locals. We opted to dine outside on their beautiful patio. Our server was super. Often in high end restaurants, the servers can be stuffy and way too formal. Our server was friendly and and genuinely a nice young man. Service was spot on without being rushed. We had enough wine from tasting all day, so we had cocktails from the bar. Their house Gin and Tonic was amazing! My husband had their Dry Aged Ribeye and he swears it was one of the best he's ever had. He's had the best stakes from Shula's and Vic and Anthony's, so that's saying a lot! I had the 6oz Filet and it was perfect. The Truffle Mac n Cheese and Morel Mushroom were to die for! When in Napa Valley, go here!"

  • "We enjoyed our dinner at Press as we celebrated our first anniversary. The service was great and the food was delicious. We ordered the crabcakes w/ lobster, filets, and the mac & cheese. We definitely are a little picky about our beef (being from TX) but we were very satisfied with all of our food choices. "

  • "Crab cake was to die for! We had the pork chop, veal chop, truffle Mac n cheese and asparagus........everything was cooked to perfection! We also had the chocolate souffle for dessert........that was heaven! It was one of the best dining experiences we've ever had! Would definitely recommend to anyone who is a foodie or wants a night of amazing food and wine. The wine list alone was one of the biggest we'd ever seen! You cannot go wrong choosing Press for dinner."

  • "I've been to Press a few times. They never disappoint me. You can't tell when driving by (which I did for years) how nice it is on the inside. Right next door to Dean and Deluca. The food is consistently good. The bacon sampler is a must. The server comes out likes he's a bacon Sommelier and describes each slice. The food tastes good and it's good variety. Weekends are packed with a mixed locals and tourist crowd. They just redid their back patio with comfy couches and heat lamps. Very nice! "

  • "Excellent food, great vibe, and overall a wonderful experience EXCEPT for the hostess. She was rude with a sour face the whole time. For a nice place like this you'd think they would care more about the first person you see and talk to upon entering. Could not believe she was the hostess (Latin woman). That set off us wrong for sure but the food and friendly diners made up for it. We were there last Saturday night."
