Our waiter was excellent and really added to the enjoyment of the evening. The food was very good and we split a couple of entrees which worked out well for us. This is a beautiful restaurant and it all added up to a wonderful evening.

Lovely evironment, great service, ok food, but way overpriced. Everything is a la carte and super expensive. Known for steaks which are huge, but way under-cooked for medium and flavor was just ok. For $300 for two, it should have been spectacular.

A little disappointed - well, very disappointed. Salads over-dressed to the point we couldn't eat, fish over-salted, & how do you screw up an apple crumble for dessert? It was awful. It was my husbands birthday & we were so excited to try Press. Good service overall which was the bright spot. :-{

 (New England)·Dined on November 16, 2017

We first went to Press two years ago on our first visit to the valley (from New England). It was among the top reasons we had to get back and visit again. We made a trip back for a week in the area to celebrate our 10th anniversary and chose Press to specifically celebrate the occasion. It did not disappoint!
Food: just as good as we remembered! The flat iron steak is incredible! Salad and charcuterie were also great to start with. Our only disappointment was that they no longer have their famous potato cakes!!!
Drinks: fantastic. Their old fashioned is always a great option, and they also have a good selection of gins for those who enjoy a good martini. We made a suggestion last time we were here to improve their scotch selection, and they most certainly did! I found many fantastic scotches to choose from, many I know well and many that I have wanted to try including 4 separate yearly bottlings of the bowmore cask.
Dessert: we had the chocolate soufflé (order ahead, it takes 20-25mins), and it was also extremely good!

Food and service levels were above average. Thank goodness we brought in our own wine ( corkage fee of $30@ -which is ok) those same bottles that we purchased at a local vineyard for $120 were selling on their wine list for $350. That part of the menu pricing is somewhat insane

PRESS is over-rated and way overpriced. The food was okay, but the prices were astronomical. Consider $67 for a 10 oz. flat iron steak. I've have better for half the price. For the prices at PRESS, you deserve an exceptional experience. The food, service, and ambiance here are not life-changing. Better than ordinary, but nowhere near worth the price. Better to go to any of 30-40 better restaurants in the wine country.

I literally cannot come to the Napa Valley without coming to Press. The service, the wine list, the drinks, the beef....love every bit of it.

They keep your wine glass full but also keep you hydrated. The wait staff is knowledgeable and personable without being pretentious or overbearing.

Go early and head straight for the bar - $1 oysters at Happy Hour!!!!
