We always love going to the pressroom. The service is great and the food is amazing! It’s hard to get intimate seating but that’s my only complaint!

Went to dinner after seeing a movie downtown. Dinner was perfect and the cocktails were extraordinary. The Treaty of Paris cocktail was so unique and perfectly crafted. The bartender has an sincere talent! For dinner, we enjoyed the Funghi pizza and the Field and Goat Salad. We have tried a few mushroom/truffle pizzas in Lancaster, but this one had to be THE best. Our server was energetic but allowed us space, as well. We look forward to returning!

Had a great dinner. My steak frites was delicious. We were in town to see a show at the Fulton and parked in the Steinman garage behind the restaurant. Our waiter was fantastic. He even validated our parking ticket for enough time for dinner and a show. Love coming to the Press Room when I’m in Lancaster and will definitely be back again.

Overall, the food, service, and ambiance was excellent. One of my wife's items was not perfect, and it was comped by the manager. They went out of their way to insure our Fifth Anniversary dinner was a memorable experience! We'll continue to dine there in the future.

Excellent food and great service. We shared small plates which were generous portions then had entrees which were very good. Highly recommend the carpaccio and the Hamlet pizza (proscuitto, brie etc). The Funghi pizza was good but heavy on the garlic which we liked but was strong. Desserts were good too. It was very loud at times but it was super busy due to a downtown Christmas event with a lot of loud people in every bar in town. Our waiter was fantastic and the courses were timed well. Drink menu is creative on top of regular options. The Gin Pear Tea was different and tasty. Definitely would return.

Not an extensive menu, but a very satisfying one, prior to a show at The Fulton. Ate at a front window table, which was a little less noisy than other tables we've eaten at before.
