I expected this restaurant to be a fine dining experience on our 37 wedding anniversary.
What we found was t shirts, ball caps and tattoos.
We had a nice seating next to the kitchen and silverware storage station.
I should have made reservations at a mc Donald’s, at least I new what to expect.
Nice restaurant and good service. Steak had good flavor but was tough and didn’t justify price. Wine was expensive and got small pour. Will skip next time.
So very good!
So very nice to hear..Lots of great changes in the months to come..Say hello when you return.. Charles Maitre D
We've been to Press several times over the years for our annual trip to Napa. Unfortunately, the food was just "okay" this time around. Thus, for $350 a meal, I was very disappointed.
Always a favorite . Never disappoints. We celebrate our Anniversary here...
To the next year....Thank you and visit us before Charles Maitre D
Superb food, service. ambiance! A truly memorable night
So nice to see you had a great experience with us the other night. We have some great things happening this year. Keep in touch. Charles Maitre D
Excellent dinner and service.
We love it that you had a great experience. This is a great new year for us and return for even more great new offerings...Thank you again Charles Maitre D
Always consistent with service and quality of food. Thanks Nicole and Amanda. Can someone please bring the corn dogs back? :)
Thank you for loving your visit. I am meeting with the chef this week and will beg him, for you....to bring back to corn dogs. The great things in life are the simple things. Thank you for your input Charles Maitre D
After the stellar reviews I'd read about PRESS I was expecting a great experience. Sadly, it was not. I ordered a filet cooked medium and it was amazing! My daughter ordered the filet medium rare and the waitress said if it ws not done to her liking, they would take it and make it medium. It was more rare so she sent it back. When it came back out it was still red in the center and the flavor didn't compare to mine. They took it off the bill, but the experience was ruined. Very disappointing.
The food and service were amazing. I would definitely recommend and go back to eat st Press.
We so appreciate your taking the time to share your experience here. We read all the reviews and your words are what we are working for..thank you Charles Maitre D
The staff, the food, the experience at PRESS is incredible. We spent a special night there following our elopement that afternoon. Tiegan, the hostess was so sweet, and the staff were welcoming and professional. The food was well paced, and superb. Thank you for a special evening.
We had such a great time having you at Press! A special day for all of us..Thank you for sharing your day with us. Charles Maitre D
Food was fantastic. Host and servers were also outstanding.
Love the five stars and your comments. See you next time.. Charles Maitre D
Meh food. This place is way overpriced for the quality of food. My husband was looking forward to his steak and it was just so so. Make sure you purchase a bottle of wine otherwise the som will give you dirty looks every time she walks past your table. There are too many good restaurants in Napa to waste a meal here. If you want meh food and a busy crowded experience eat here...
Friendly staff. Seasonal ingredients. Most comprehensive wine list in the Napa area... Upper price point for menu items.
Overall seemed short staffed, taking awhile to be greeted at our table and orders taken. The food did arrive timely. Flavorful meal though not as impressive as other restaurants we have visited in the area. The Somm did not open our bottle (2008) though she had recommended the year/blend, and the waiter came to serve it instead. We were not impressed by the quality of the wine nor the service with the pour.
Overall the visit seemed like controlled chaos. We will not return.
It was absolutely one of the finest meals I've ever had!
Thank you for your private words and public words....We are working hard to make this our best year yet. As always we cant wait to see you again. Please say hello upon your return Charles Maitre D
This is mine and my husbands favorite restaurant because of its excellent food and exceptional service from all staff members!
Your words are so appreciated. We answer all of the reviews and have to say..yours is a happy moment. 2019 is a great new year for us and we are working very hard to increase all aspects of service and menu...Please say hello on your return.. Charles Maitre D
Nice casual place. Food ok
Thank you for your feedback...if you have any suggestions on making your next visit a better experience...Please let us know. Charles Maitre D
We sat at the bar- great service by Adam and Dustin - and rest of staff. Definitely an effort taken to ensure that guests are happy. Probably been here a dozen + times. Always a solid experience.
Eloise....Great words to read..Thank you so much for your positive feedback...We are working to 2019 the best year yet at Press Charles Maitre D
Great place!! Loved the ambiance and delicious meal. Service was attentive and informative. Loved the fun vibe of the restaurant. We would definitely return.
Thank you for taking some moments to let us know about your experience. To the best in 2019 and say hello when you return... Charles Maitre D
The place is beautiful, the service was exceptional, attentive and very personable while we enjoyed a few cocktails and started dining. Jodi the wine expert was delightful and engaging and picked a nice wine to pair with our upcoming dinner.
Now The food: the Bacon hanger was great and fun, the Cesar salad was delicious as was the Salmon that my wife had, BUT unfortunately, The creamed spinach was coarse and hard to chew and I was very disappointed with the Ribeye that I was greatly anticipating and they are known for; it was chewy and rather flavorless, more in line with a "Choice" piece of meat, not a "Prime" piece of meat... Oh well, maybe it was just a luck of the draw thing! Cheers...
This is a review for their booking system. We booked on Press's website which links us to Open Table and received a booking confirmation for the evening of 23rd April, only to arrive at the restaurant to realize it was closed! Truly disappointed to the website showing availability and even sending us a confirmation for something that's not available! We only had two nights at Napa and had looked forward to dining at Press.
They made my experience perfect and memorable.
Thank you so much for your sharing your experience and rating us so well. We so appreciate any suggestions you have for your return visit. The best summer to you... Charles Maitre D
Steak is sublime. Cooked to perfection with just the right amount of char. Have it once and you'll be back.
Sublime is a great word! Thank you so much for dining with us and your kind words..see you soon... Charles Maitre D
Press is by far the BEST steak in Napa!! The wine list is unmatched and the service is AWESOME!!!!
We appreciate you!....Thank you so much for letting us know about your experience...Till we see you again... Charles Maitre D
Best meal I've had since moving to the area. Service and food were outstanding. We look forward to coming back very soon.
These words are music to our ears...2019 is a great year for us...See you soon..thank you again Charles Maitre D
Great steak restaurant with an outstanding wine selection by the glass. Not many options other than steak and the steaks are hugh.
Thank you so much for dining with us and your observations... Charles Maitre D
Had a great steak, and the bacon ice cream was incredible! Perhaps the best part was Charles, who was a fantastic Maitre D'.
Carl....If its possible to blush thru the internet I am making a good try at it! We are so happy to hear that you had a great experience at Press. The team at Press is working hard to make this the best year yet and words like this show we are on the correct track. Please make it a point to say hello on your return.... Charles Maitre D
Fabulous evening- asked waiter to slow down the meal and he did.
Fabulous is a great word..thank you so much for dining with us and some great feedback Charles Maitre D
Love the ambiance. Beautiful. Sommelier wine recommendation was excellent. Very knowledgeable. Highly recommend
CB124....thank you for your observations....see you again soon.. Charles Maitre D
Amazing tomahawk snake river steak. Service was great too!
Thank you so much for dining with us..See you again soon Charles Maitre D
Highly recommend. Was our third time and again we had a fantastic all-around experience. We went to celebrate my friend’s birthday and from the moment arrived and started with drinks on the patio until we finished our after dinner espresso, the service was exemplary and food outstanding. Great wine recommendation by the sommelier. We are already looking forward to our next evening at Press.
We so appreciate your kind words. We are working to make your experience better all the time and this makes us feel we are on the correct track. Please return as soon as you can and thank you again Charles Maitre D
Had an amazing experience!! Our second time there and our server Darla was the best!!!!
Thank you Darla....Great to see that you had such a great visit with us..The third time will be a charm.See you then and be sure to request Darla... Charles Maitre D
Unfortunately the food was not on par with what we have had in the past and expect from this restaurant. They have also removed the crab cakes which was a huge disappointment.
What wonderful this place is. Each staff member we came in contact with aimed to please....and pleased they did. I was delighted by the sparkling wine choice the bar tender recommended--En Tirage--and have even tried to run down that wine for purchase. These people know their wines...and their cocktails. The pineapple mule had my husband hooked from the first sip. We all love good food but all have an allergy to "tricky" food (vertical, foamy, "precious"). We got good food...good food elevated to perfection. The roasted rainbow carrots were divine; the shrimp cocktail was tangy and tasty and well-accented by the horseradish; my baked potato was sublime (is that possible?!), and the steaks (prime filets) were tender, flavorful, and cooked to our exact specifications. The birthday dessert they brought (on top of the great Key Lime pie we ordered) took our breaths away---it was a mixed berry sorbet with a fresh huckleberry sauce. And fresh it was!!! The magnetic pull back to this restaurant is so strong that I wanted to return tonight!!!!
Ran out of all desserts except ice cream and sorbet
We had been to Press previously, the last time about 5 years ago, and were really looking forward to the return visit. We had an early reservation and were seated on time but our service was miserable compared to the tables on either side. Granted one of those tables ordered several bottles of wine and had the servers and steward all over them. The table on the other side ordered the bacon appetizer after we did (they saw one delivered to the table on our opposite side) and received their's more than 30 minutes before us. The server told us the kitchen was backed up. The food is very good in general but my rib eye steak was less flavorful than I expected and was cooked medium rare as requested but without much of a sear and was almost cold in the center. There are many good restaurants in the Napa Valley and I think it will be a while before we are back at Press for $150/person.
Wow, what great service! Friendly, attentive, helpful and NOT snooty. Everyone from our waitress, bus persons and sommelier were top notch. The food was delicious. The almond wood grill makes the steaks come out so very tasty. We really had a lovely time there!
Thank you so much for your kind words...We are there for you when you return Charles Maitre D
Not only was the food, wine, and dessert utterly amazing, I proposed to my girlfriend this past Sunday night. I had left a message for the staff a few days prior, and they treated us like royalty, and she had zero idea I was going to pop the question. Even the bartender and manager took time out of their busy night to congratulate us.
I simply cannot suggest PRESS enough. The ambiance is wonderful as well as is the music selection.
Whether you have something big to celebrate or just want to enjoy steaks that melt in your mouth, do yourself a favor and make PRESS your go-to when you're in the Napa area. You will love it.
We are honored to have your special moment shared with us. Your kind words and private note make our day! To the two you we wish you a grand time in Napa Valley! Charles Maitre D
Impeccable - staff was on point - food was fabulous and the atmosphere was wonderful
Very nice special occasion place. Pricey but delicious food very artfully prepared and presented. Intetesting decor, great staff, easy parking
Love your words..Thank you so much and see you soon... Charles Maitre D
