    So sad Pressroom is closing- had a wonderful dinner last night, then a show at the Fulton. Server was so sweet and attentive. People lined up in freezing cold waiting for them to open at 5. Loved the atmosphere and food!

    We went to the Pressroom because we had received a gift card for Christmas from our daughters. The food was excellent as was the service. The atmosphere was fun and everyone seemed to be having a good time. We certainly enjoyed ourselves!

    We thought the service was slow, but we do understand that it was very crowded the night we were in. We just did not think we got our money's worth. Very overpriced for what we got. Drinks were very expensive! My father in-law and I both got the steak. I was disappointed we did not get any kind of vegetable or salad with our meal. We also were very disappointed in the scant choices for food.

    This was our first time here after always talking about coming here. The restaurant is very nice and is definitely what we want from a restaurant. Food was great, service was great too! The booths are very private. We love how high they go up. I wish more places had booths like that. We are very sad to know it’s closing soon. I honestly wish we were in a position to buy this place and keep it going. I hope if another restaurant comes to this location, they keep it as is.

    Haven’t been here in years. Food was good but the menu was extremely limited and the noise level was high. Had the kale salad and burger - both very good. Partner had wings and Greek salad which he said were okay, not great. Wanted to love it but the busyness, noise level and limited menu will keep us from rushing back.
