Terrible place. Subpar food and not accommodating if you have special needs. I would save your hard earned money and eat elsewhere. Ruined one day of our vacation due to rigidity and insolence from upper management.
We will respond privately to be sure we can address what your concerns are....
All around incredible experience.
So nice to have you dine with us. Thank you so much for your kind words. We are here for your return and look forward to it.. Charles Maitre D
Very pricey for just decent food. Screwed up a NY strip...can’t do that if you’re an upscale steakhouse. Lobster Mac and bacon sampler were nice, but neither is worth the $40 charge.
We felt welcome from the first moment we entered the restaurant! Our waitress Loretta was outstanding! The food was superb!!
Such nice words about your experience with us. I will let Loretta know and please be sure to request her when you return again Thank you so much for dining with us Charles Maitre D
We will not be returning to Press. The food was the worst we’ve ever had.
The bacon flight was great!
Thank you so much for your feedback and for dining with us Charles Maitre D
Exceptional service and food! Everything was very well prepared. One in the best restaurants to dine at in Napa.
We so appreciate you dining with us and writing such great words about your experience. 2019 is a great year for us with fine tuning all aspects of Press...Keep an eye our for more..... Charles Maitre D
Surpassed all expectations! Wonderful wine, food and service. Call early for reservations.
A great feeling to see so many five star reviews. It shows us that our fine tuning the restaurant in 2019 is working..We love it that you love us! Thank you for dining with us and check back soon for a seasonal change in the menus of both the dining room and the bar Charles Maitre D
Absolutely great dinner. Bacon tasting was great. Produce was so fresh and flavorful. Steaks were prepared perfectly.
Great review...thank you so much for dining with us...Visit again soon to see some new items on the menu for the cooler months... Charles Maitre D
We’ve heard good things about Press and wanted to try it. Everything is insanely over priced. In the crazy category. The food was fine but not worth the price in our opinion. Tip, bring your own wine. They have an extensive cellar but the bottles are overpriced.
If you are in Napa Valley this is a must visit. One of the best places for dinner.
We take the OT reviews as great feed back on our service and food. Thank you for sharing your experience. Please return soon and dine with us again.. Charles Maitre D
This was one of the best dinners we’ve had in a long time! And it certainly was the best dinner we had in Napa Valley. Can’t wait till we can come back to press again.
Words that sing to our ears...Thank you so much.. We are on a roll in 2019....Fine Tuning all aspects of Press. We thank you for dining with us...return soon Charles Maitre D
Being from Texas I understand we have a high standard for steak, and my filet was excellent. However my husband's ribeye was just meh. The cut was too thin and the meat fairly tough. Our salad and truffle fries were excellent. Service was professional and spot on, but not necessarily friendly, with the exception of the sommelier. She was delightful and helpful.
Thank you so much for dining with us. We take your feedback seriously. Charles Maitre D
Had to wait a long time for a table, although we had reservations. Steaks were not as high quality as the prices commanded. Sides were excellent.
Great place, wine awesome, sommelier was so easy to talk to. Apps were good, our steak was served warm at best. Dessert were good. Will give another chance, those steaks should come out sizzling
Thank you so much for dining with us. We take your feed back very seriously. With such a respectful review you deserve to have your words taken. Thank you so much . We will be sure the chef hears what you have to say. Please return for hotter steaks ....thank you Charles Maitre D
This experience could not have been better!! From the moment we walked into the restaurant until the moment we left we felt welcome. We have been in the wine country for a week and this was far and away the best meal we have had and I can’t imagine anything topping it. The steaks were spectacular and the service was beyond compare. Eric was our server and he was the right mix of friendly, professional and attentive. I highly recommend...this is a must do when you visit the Napa Valley!!
(I feel like I must say that I am from the NY City area where there are many spectacular dining options so we are discriminating diners).
Thank you so much for dining with us. I remember speaking with you. We so appreciate that you shared this with Open Table folks. We are on a roll in 2019 where we are working on fine tuning both the menu and the service at Press. With you it seems to be coming to fruition. I will let Eric know what a great time you had and please request him for your return visit Charles Maitre D
Excellent menu, food, staff and ambience. Sat outside and it was perfect!!
Thank you so much for dining with us. We so appreciate your feedback. Charles Maitre D
Great experience. Atmosphere, service from all the staff, selection of food, and the quality of our food was phenomenal.
How to put a smile on our faces....thank you so much for both rating us and dinging with us Charles Maitre D
Fabulous filet mignon! Highly recommend with Bernaise sauce -- although I did half au poivre with it.
Thank you so much for dining with us. We so appreciate your feedback. Charles Maitre D
The meal was delicious. Steak and lasagna both delicious. Service was attentive and pleasant. Outdoor dining was pleasant and casual.
A great review and thank you for dining with us.... Charles Maitre D
Absolutely fantastic food and a world class wine list.Served by a professional guy called Eric.A great chap.
We think Eric is a great chap also! Thank you for dining with us. Be sure to request Eric on your return visit Charles Maitre D
The new chef at Press has brought a wonderful life to the menu. He has added dishes out side of just steak and every one of them is superb. Waitstaff and bar staff are always super attentive.
We read all of the feedback on OT and thank you for yours! Chef Tessier and his team have been doing just as you describe. The quality and presentation and flavors are all first class. Thank you so much for dining with us and understanding why 2019 is a great new year at Press Charles Maitre D
Started with salad and shrimp. Delicious. Som was awesome. Honestly press shines with their meats and wine menu. Steaks perfect. Sadly the $35 mac “and cheese” was a super tiny portion of lobster even shorter portion of pasta. In a lobster broth with a definite fish oyster stock broth. In no means a lobster Mac and cheese and def not anywhere close the lobster amount to warrant $35 when a filet is $50. You expect a decent size pasta. Nice touch for bday with dessert. Would absolutely return. Would absolutely not order the lobster Mac again.
Thank you so much for both dining with us and your feedback on your dinner. We appreciate so much that you will return. I will write you privately so you can contact me and we will be sure that the Lobster Mac and Cheese will meet and exceed your expectations on your return Charles Maitre D
Everything at Press is spectacular! From the food ,wine and of course the service!!!
YAHOO! We read all of the ratings on OT and we so appreciate you both taking the time to write this and also with dining with us. Be sure to return soon. Lots of great new things happening on the menu in 2019 Charles Maitre D
We were sat a FULL HOUR after our reservation time and then sat down and waited quite a while for our server! The food was good but service was terrible!
We thank you for dining with us and will reply privately Charles Maitre D
Overall 4.5 stars.
A friend of mine from the UK and I drove up to St Helena and had dinner at Press. We had big fun.
I had a dozen Fanny Bay Oysters on the half shell and a kick*ss Sauvignon Blanc, Crossroads, which is the best American SB I’ve ever had very crisp and clean.
My friend had a Frank Family Rose that paired nicely with large but not obscene shrimp with a cocktail sauce.
I went with the Bouchain Pinot Noir. Just too peppery for my taste, but it was the only pinot by the glass. And a really nice 8oz filet cooked rare/medium rare as I had ordered.
The sauce Bernaise was nice, but I like mine a little sharp and lemony, but still it was very good. And the heirloom tomatoes with salt and evoo that asked for a side of balamic really hit the spot.
My friend did the FIlet as well but with french fries (a la Pomme Frites) and had the black truffle butter with it.
I think the highlight was splitting the Clafoutis with peaches and creme fresce in a souffle crust. KILLER! I had a 20 year old Cockburn port as the pairing.
Big fun. Kiley was a good server.
Thank you so much for your great and fine words. You have a great memory. I remember you and your nice friends that you dined with. We so appreciate you dining with us and sharing your thoughts To the next time We Thank you! Charles Maitre D
Amazing food great service not easy on aging ears very hard to hear
Outstanding Restaraunt superb service wonderfully delicious food very pricey but, worth it
Thank you for both dining with us and your kind words. Please return as soon as you can. We are adding some great new items to our menu in 2019 Charles Maitre D
Outstanding service! Our first time in and they couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful with the menu & wines!
Thank you for both your kinds words and for dining with us...See you soon Charles Maitre D
Was visiting from
NYC ..... it was like NY in Nappa
Fantastic is a great word Thank you for dining with us Charles Maitre D
The wine was great, the salad was very good. The steak was overcooked and had to be sent back, and the replacement was not flavorful but tough. Dessert was complimentary and quite good, The service was very good. Don't think I will go back for the price they charge.
We went for my husbands 50th. It was our second time dining at Press. First time was amazing, and came highly recommended to us for our second visit. The restaurant is beautiful, however the service was disappointing. Our water glasses were left dry often, and once we got our drinks, we were never asked if we would like another. The food wasn’t what we expected, but was okay.
With all of the restaurant choices in the valley, I would have to say, we wouldn’t choose to dine there again.
We take all feed back seriously and will respond privately Charles Maitre D
As a local resident and past PT employee of Press I was extremely disappointed in the restaurant menu. Service was just OK and it missing its old vibe when I worked there. It felt stiff and stuffy. The menu has changed a lot since I worked with the GM/Chef couple whom I thought was the best. The appetizers and salads on the current menu was not impressive. Not one was interesting to me and not what I would expect from a traditional steakhouse. I have dined at some of the best restaurants in North America and spent 20 years in Restaurant Management. For the first time, I believe Coles's Chop House has surpassed Press for overall dining experience.
We appreciate feed back and will answer privately.. Charles Maitre D
It was a bit noisy even though Press was not full. The food was excellent. Our waiter was new but did a great job. We had a great bottle of wine that was overpriced but expected. The habanero infused margarita can be passed up if you like good margaritas.
Thank you for your input. We appreciate you dining with us Maitre D Charles
Press is one of the best restaurants in the Napa Valley. Fantastic food, incredible wine selection and a great bar . . . Press offers beautiful ambience with stellar service to match.
24oz Bone-in Ribeye (medium–rare) pictured here . . . with a pad of truffle butter ($98 + $12) . . . it just melts in your mouth with tremendous flavor . . . and the truffle butter just adds to the excitement !!!
Yes, Press Is expensive . . . although life is short, so live a little (wink).
WOW...you should write for Food and Wine magazine. Great to hear you had a great visit with us. Please return soon and again thank you for dining with us Charles Maitre D
Fabulous food and service. Filet cooked perfect, homemade sauces outstanding and truffle fries were a hit. Definitely recommend!
Thank you so much for both your kind words and dining with us. Lots of great new things happening this year... See you soon Charles Maitre D
This was a very high end meat based dining experience with delicious food and an extensive wine list. My only criticism, and it is a monetary one rather than a quality one, is that is is expensive especially in regard to the wine list. Nevertheless I would happily go again.
The Food and service is better than EVER!...If you haven't been in a while go back its AMAZING again!
A spectacular evening! We went for both food and wine and had a night that we'll remember for a long time. The food service and food itself was spectacular. An array of seafood to start and great beef to finish. The wines were fantastic. We went with a plan in mind and ended with 6 different bottles. We had sought out 3 of them, but the other 3 were recommended by Taylor & Amanda. We got to enjoy 3 bottles that we wouldn't have picked if we went 10 straight days. My brother-in-law said it best. "That wasn't just a meal, that was an experience, an experience I won't soon forget!"
WOW! We read all the reviews on OT and thank you so much for your kind words. We are so proud of our wine program and Taylor and Amanda. We appreciate you dining with us and please return as soon as you can Charles Maitre D
The food & service were excellent! We would definitely come back
Thank you so much for your kinds words. We are working to make this the best year ever. Your ratings of us show that we are working in the right directions. Thank you for dining with us..We appreciate you so much Charles Maitre D
