    We love Napa Valley - in fact, we were married at the nearby Auberge du Soleil and frequently visit places in St. Helena, Rutherford, and all along HWY29 and the Silverado Trail. Press was a lucky find... simply by doing a search on Open Table we saw this listing, clicked it open, and were thrilled by the menu combining the best of beef with awesome seafood, a great wine list, and lucious desserts. It is now on our list as a must-stop along with a very few other excellent places in the area. Being next to Dean & DeLuca, we hadn't noticed it before our OpenTable search... but we're now thrilled to have found it and look forward to a long and delicious friendship.

    AutumnJoyVIP
    Dined on 9/21/2008
    Enjoyed a nice, but very pricey meal at this restaurant. I don't eat meat, but the others in my party had the ribeye steak and the filet. Heard some complaints about biting into large pieces of fat with the rib eye. All three meat eaters enjoyed the meal but we couldn't help noticing how bare the plate was with just a piece of meat on it. I know this is a standard steakhouse way of plating their steaks, but honestly a little more thought into the presentation or a vegetable for color would enhance the plate tremendously. For the price there are better places in the Napa Valley to get a nice steak. The outdoor patio and enormous gas fireplace make a cozy spot for outdoor dining. Our second time to this restaurant, but we won't go back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 9/21/2008
    Service was good, not extraordinary. Food was great, but not worth the outsize price. Little things like the bread-basket called "fresh-baked", but was cold. The heirloom tomato reduction soup with creme fraiche was awesome! The heirloom tomato salad was excellent as well, great balance of flavors. The wine list was at least 2x or more what any local winery was charging. The atmosphere and furniture was ikea-like and trendy -- very new money. I'd go back if the prices were cut by 30%, which would still make for a large food bill, but it would be more in-line with what we received. Only one waiter and two runners for the main dining room seemed sparse.

    This little out of the way place is special! If it is a beautiful evening the spot to sit is outside. This is a special place for friends to gather or a romantic evening! The inconsistant thing is the absence of a chef. They have a very talented chef named John Hitchcock that has designed their menu and that seems to be working- but for whatever reason in the past chefs do not stick around. They usually have piano music playing in the background and the inside is a very nice area that is very comfortable. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

    Press puts the imPress into St Helena. After a week of jus this, foam that, and pairing of the other, Press was a refreshing change. We were greeted warmly, the room is a glam. urban sort of space, the view (which was a surprise considering the front of the room lies on busy route 29) and the short menu a relief. Great beef (which is all 4 of us ate) was outstanding, the fries excellent and the service friendly and swift without making us feel rushed. Also a great bar to have just a plate and a glass of wine should that be all you can face.

    Absolutely Fantastic! Everything we had from beginning to end was 5 star including the service. Beginning with the drinks, we opted for martinis rather than wine and the Feng Shui was recommended and wow,it was fabulously refreshing. We ordered the chopped salad to share and were told that everything is home grown and freshly picked that day. It had avocado,apples and cherry and yellow tomatoes that exploded in your mouth and tasted like candy. It was drizzled with a creamy dressing that complimented the salad nicely. For our entree we shared the roast chicken that was carved tableside served with an au jus. So tender and cooked to perfection! We ordered sides of summer corn and potato puree that were amazing! Overall 5 star!!!

    The food is wonderful; everything is fresh and the steaks are from grass-fed beef. However! beware of both the portions and the prices. Most dishes are big enough to share, some even for 3 people. As a local, I end up recommending Press more often than I actually eat there, but it is a nice place for a special occasion or a business dinner. On most occasions I've found the service to be spot on, but on this night one waiter we had (who was very young) was a bit intrusive.

    The cocktails were great and creative. The food was not so great specially the meat(the outside was burnt wich made my medium rare meat bitter on the outside and VERY bland in the inside). My meat was cut for us ahead of time wich made it loose its juices. I also thought the potatoe cakes were hard on the inside. I noticed that the lady next to us had sent back her steak 3 times for the cook to get it right. I thought it was expensive and did not live up to its expectations. I would not go back to Press unless it was for cocktails and oysters only.

The sides of hen of the woods mushrooms, asparagus, mac and cheese, fries and rings were the perfect complement. The appetizers were all excellent as well. We were very impressed with our waiter who was extremely knowledgeable about the wine list (he is starting his own vineyard) and knew everything about the food and restaurant, down to where the water glasses were manufactured. We will definitely be back....Press is a winner.
