Diner Reviews
  • "Beautiful room with great service. Unfortunately, the food is average at best. Dry aged NY steak lacked flavor. Mac & Cheese was not noteworthy. (It was far better a year ago.) Butter lettuce salad was fresh but without a dressing that had any flavor. Steak tartar was good.. but still average. Overall, I was disappointed and will not come back for anything more than a cocktail at the bar."

  • "The steak and filet at Press were very good. Sides are heavy but a great accompaniment to the meal. But, the bone marrow was not so great. Would not recommend that one."

  • "Great fresh food. Will not recommend to vegetarians unless they are content with the side dish menu."

  • "My wife and I were the first ones to arrive at 5 pm. The first things we notice was the beautiful large room with the high ceiling. But, this turned out to be a problem once other guests arrived. It got noisier and then we noticed how close the tables are to each other. We could even hear the conversation from the table next to us, with or without my Hearing Aids. We started off with the small seafood platter that was so large that it took up most of our small table. We then shared steaks along with an asparagus plate and the truffle mac & cheese. The steaks were good but we made the mistake of not ordering one of the steak sauces. Everything was good but for the money I would have preferred a more intimate and quitter restaurant."

  • "Has been one of our go to's for years. Now that we've moved to St Helena, it has not changed. Mr Rudd, has exceptional produce proteins and staff. If you're craving beef, or one of the most exceptional roasted chickens on the planet. This is your spot...BTW, bacon tasting menu in the bar to die for"

  • "Hi Loretta, thanks for a great evening. Not only was the food fantastic but our waitress Loretta was outstanding. My wife had the filet and I the NY Strip. Both were cooked perfectly and had wonderful flavor, just like a fine wine. For sides the root veg and chard. Loretta liked the way I said chahhd with my Boston accent. I would highly recommend Press to anyone."

  • "A great find. They will let you order off of the menu for a group of 7 or 8. Wine list is insane! Service is very good."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "My husband and I had a great dinner at Press. The food was spectacular and the staff was very nice and attentive. I passed by the kitchen on my way to the restroom and I happen to sneak a peak into their kitchen and they asked me to come in. They were so nice and what a kitchen. Definitely a must when going to Napa Valley!"

  • "Consistently always great. Best cuts of meat available. Love the garden & starch items to choose from. Great variety for non meat lovers. Your wine list is delivered on an ipad and has the best of the best wines from Napa to Sonoma. My server was trying a little to hard at first but she came around at the end."

  • "Press is amazing. Food, service, and ambience are all top notch. It is the second most expensive restaurant in St. Helena however (1st being the Restaurant at Meadowood), though everything is superb. I highly recommend for a special occasion"
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "We have avoided Press for years based on an unfavorable impression shortly after they opened. It took a friend giving us a gift certificate to Press to get us back. WOW, what a meal. The highlight was a NY Strip that was richly flavored, cooked to perfection and had a magnificent crust/char on the surface. But the rest of the meal was almost as good - Roasted maitake mushrooms that were perfectly al dente, Swiss chard that melted in your mouth, and an awesome chocolate souffle for dessert. Oh, be sure and try some truffle butter on top of your steak for an over-the-top experience."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "So this is really a positive review. The hostess, waitstaff and sommelier were all excellent and helpful. Impressive wine list. The Bacon Flight was fun. The food was good solid fare. The only complaint was how dark the restaurant actually became as the sun went down. I always joke that a really dark restaurant is trying to hide something. Press really has nothing to hide, so why not turn up the lights a little bit so we can see each other and the lovely food on the plate. That's it really. Well done overall."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "The food was mediocre for the price you pay. I got a prok chop whcih was decent, but teh potato side dish and kale side dish was not good and they were expensive side dishes. The restaurant was too loud for my taste. I cannot recommend this restaurant when Napa has Cole's chophouse whcih is much better."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We spent a week split between San Francisco and St. Helena, and tried to hit all of the best rated restaurants we could. The press was head and shoulders above all others. Pricey, of course, but well worth it in every way - ambience, food quality, service! I wish we could go back again and again, but the trip had to end."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "It took us a couple of weeks to get a table at the time we wanted. On the day of our reservation we were able to get a table on Open Table. Our water server was the best part of the service,not only did he keep our glasses full but he also offered tips on the area and had a personality. The most frustrating part was the surrounding tables which were empty! After having such a hard time getting in, we expected the restaurant to be packed but it wasn't. My friend filet was not cooked correctly and when sent back, came back out worse and not edible! The restaurant did not charge us for her meal of course which was nice but still a disappointing experience over all. All of this being said, her husband said he'd had the "best rib eye ever!""
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "We went to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. I noted this in the reservation, and the restaurant gave us a nice table right in front of the fireplace. It created a really nice backdrop for the evening. The steak (bone-in ribeye for two) and sides (mac n cheese, potato cakes, and bone marrow) were all delicious. 3 sides was bit much for the two of us, but I couldn't narrow it down to just 2 when ordering. They also put a candle in our dessert, as a nice final touch. The service was great....friendly and not invasive at all. The sommelier was very helpful also. Overall, great experience."

  • "Only go here if you have lots of dough to spend on lots of meats. My 8 ounce filet mignon was perfectly cooked, delicious, and cost $48. Sorry but even in Northern California that's ridiculous."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "My wife and I were visiting Napa for a few days and had read some reviews on Press. Got reservations and had one of the best dinner experiences in recent memory. From the ambiance, service, food and wine, it was nothing short of outstanding. A really, really great place. If you are headed to Napa and miss Press, you've wasted a trip. Enjoy!"

    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "The mark-up on wine is exorbitant, but the wagyu beef here isn't nearly as pricey as it is at Bourbon in the St. Francis in San Francisco. My husband and I shared a 10-oz. cut of wagyu, and we both think it's the best steak we've ever had. We shared a bottle of Biale zinfandel for over $100, but it was a delicious accompaniment to a flawless meal. In addition to the wagyu steak, we had sides of roasted Brussels sprouts and shiitake mushrooms, preceded by excellent salads. Save up and go on a special occasion, taste and study up on wines, and share the generous cuts of wagyu steak. In that way you'll mitigate against the shock of the prices and enjoy some excellent food and perhaps a glass of nice wine to go with it."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "This was our second visit to Press and it did not disappoint. Beautiful space, gracious service and amazing food! We both had the Wagyu beef which is the most delicious steak we have ever had. Expensive but well worth it especially for a romantic evening or a special occasion."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Granted, Napa Valley has dozens of culinary gems. Although the menu at PRESS is pretty limited to steak, the architecture and ambience of the building are extraordinary. That said, the prime cuts of beef and creative sides (save for the potatoes) are deliciously and appropriately prepared. The wait staff is top notch, and the wine list features some of the best local choices around. Intentionally, it's heavy on Napa, but many choices are atypical for the region - balanced, food friendly whites and reds that are hard to find in retail venues. We celebrated an anniversary, which they pleasantly acknowledged with a greeting card and a table by the fireplace! And here's a surprise... we're NOT tourists!!"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "We think that Press is one of the best restaurants in Napa Valley. I had the veal sweetbread appetizer. The server asked what I thought of the dish. The chef wanted to have the feedback which I thought was something you don't hear very often. The small, meaty sweetbreads were delicious, lightly breaded, not a bit greasy with bit of ribbon cabbage added for a nice contrast. Overall it was a wonderful array of flavors. We both had filets cooked perfectly to our preference. My steak was with black peppercorns perched perfectly on top. Absolutely delicious. This meal was complimented with a 2010 Jones cabernet sauvignon. Perfect. We shared a large slice of chocolate cake for dessert….sinful."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "I think our waitress was on a muscle relaxer or something. She just wasn't there mentally to service us or answer our questions. We had a guest who is sensitive to gluten and she couldn't answer any of his questions. Most restaurants are keen to gluten free or at least knows what's if there is gluten in a dish and offer to take it off. She had to ask the kitchen and when she came back she never offered an alternative. Our bill was pretty hefty and I didn't feel too happy about leaving her the tip, but we did. On a positive note the sommelier was helpful."

  • "Have noticed the Variety of food choices is shrinking and the same items on the menu"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Spectacular steaks, great sides, and a no-holds barred wine list make Press a no-compromises choice quality-wise for dinner in Napa. It's a slightly older audience dining, and the prices obviously pull in a wealthier crowd. If you have the means, and enjoy great beef, great selection!"

  • "We dined here for my birthday on the recommendation of a wine consultant friend who eats here often. We were seated at a two-top next to a party of 10, and a party of four who had an ill-behaved two yr. old, who they allowed to run around the table, swing on her high chair, scream and get in the waiters' way. Our table was the only one without a light above it, necessitating the use of our Flashlight app to read the menu. The service was truly excellent and attentive and the sommelier very helpful! We split the 24 oz. ribeye and it was beautifully cooked with a wonderful char and cool center. The steak tartare we had to start was very good and hand-chopped as we prefer. The chocolate soufflé was good but not remarkable."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "We had a table for two right in front of the fireplace. Everything was exceptional from the moment we walked in to our departure. The shrimp cocktail was meaty and delicious. My boyfriend had the ny strip - a huge portion that was tasty and tender. Our Server made us feel welcome and answered all questions about the menu."

  • "We did not enjoy this restaurant. The tables were so close together, we felt like we were dining with both sets of neighbors. Every time our neighbor on the right got up, I had to hang on to my wine glass so he wouldn't knock it over. The noise level was ridiculous. Couldn't see the menus, it was so dark. Had to use the flashlights on our phones. The food was very expensive too, even by Napa standards. We don't mind paying for good food, but the food wasn't all that good either. Our friend ordered a $60 steak that was just okay. Then everything else was a la carte. Vegetables, starches, etc. had a much better meal at Mustards."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "We had a wonderful dinner at Press thanks to a recommendation from a local who said he thought we would be pleased. Fantastic service, selection and ambience. Press stands apart from its competition and is definately worth the visit."

  • "Great steaks, great service, great atmosphere and décor. We make an annual pre-Christmas visit to the wine country and always put dinner at Press on the agenda. Consistently excellent - always a wonderful dining experience."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "Once again, a great meal, a great overall dining experience. The wine list is very extensive, and notable for offering hundreds of choices if you're looking for a bottle at the $200 level or higher. Curiously, we had a little more trouble finding something of interest to us than we usually do, but we had been wine-tasting most of the day so we weren't too disappointed. The Basil Beauty cocktail had been taken off the menu as it's not high season for basil. Yet they were nice enough to make us a couple. That is one gorgeous tasting cocktail. We also tried one of the winter cocktails currently featured, and it was also excellent. We can no longer imagine spending a couple of days in the Napa Valley without including a visit to Press."

  • "Press is a very beautiful restaurant who's simple but elegant interior is a big surprise given that the so so curb appeal! Mostly a place for meat lovers who will not be disappointed in the quality or preparation. My only complaint is that the extensive wine list sports a higher than normal markup, and given that most of the wines are from neighboring cellars one would expect the wines to be more approachable or at least an offering of good but less pricy wines which abound in Napa."
