Kevin was our waiter and he was absolutely amazing. Engine he suggested was impeccable. The restaurant aesthetics were phenomenal as well as lighting. This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. We will definitely make another visit soon.

Had a very good time on our date night! Gravy Fries and Tuna Carpaccio were fantastic. The steak that I had, and the pizza that my wife had were also very good. Staff did a very good job under the Covid circumstances. Will definitely be going back again.

A great spot, just a block or so from the Marriott Penn Square. Welcomed warmly and seated immediately (make a reservation). Our server, Barbara, was on point. She was plenty familiar with the menu and made good suggestions. My wife is a bit if a guac snob and the guacamole was delicious and fresh. Duck was super tasty and the homemade cream of corn was like nothing I've had before. Daily cut of beef was served to perfection. A great dining experience and if we're back in Lancaster, we'll be back at the Pressroom!

Always love the Pressroom. One of the few restaurants I feel safe at during covid - masks, temp checks, and barriers between tables. HIGHLY recommend the kale Caesar - I get it every time!

The place is beautiful- let’s start there. I made a reservation for 6pm a week earlier. I noted that it was my fiancé’s birthday and that I wanted to surprise him with a little cake (we are from south Jersey and were in town for a couple days). They called to verify which dessert I would want and had it ready. Our sever, Clay was just fabulous. From beginning to end we felt taken care of, he was engaging and knowledgeable. The food was absolutely delicious, well made and beautifully presented. We were VERY happy with the evening.

What an excellent experience this was. Our server (I didnt catch his name) was usually a bar tender (he said) and he did a fantastic job providing knowledge and recommendations. Also, the food was fantastic. The seafood Bouillabaisse was EXCELLENT and every aspect of the meal was great.

Had a very nice meal at The Pressroom this past Saturday night. Considering that COVID is still such an issue for restaurants, the setup was well done and the service was awesome. Chris did a fantastic job all around. Made a killer Cosmo for my neighbor and I got a nice pour of McCallan's!

The food is consistently good. The kale caesar salad and bouillabaisse I ordered were both exceptionally tasty. The dressing on the salad was creamy and full of flavor. The seafood and fish in the bouillabaisse were very fresh, and the broth was rich and just spicy enough to be a delight on the palate.
I appreciate how the Pressroom has handled the necessary protocols in the time of COVID. It feels great to eat in the restaurant even now, and the staff handled all parts of the process with courtesy, a warm welcome, and enthusiasm.

The overall atmosphere of the restaurant was great. The hostess and the bartender/waiter (same person) were friendly. It was a bit frustrating waiting after our drink/app order to place our entree order - the waiter came back after our appetizer was brought out to take that order. I realized then he was doubling as the bartender and dining waiter so I understood slightly but it did immediately leave us feeling forgotten. The food was good, but felt common and somewhat lackluster. I had the Classico pizza and my boyfriend had The Burger. Each listed with some wonderful ingredients and features, but ultimately did not deliver. Again, great quality and taste but not special. The guacamole and the chai creme brûlée were excellent. Seating was comfortable and felt intimate. The decor was very interesting - we loved the great mixture of the old and the new, the vintage and the modern. All in all, we will absolutely return because the staff was great, and we want to give some other dishes a try.

Service was fabulous and very speedy, food (burgers, pasta, roasted vegetables, yummy kale salad) delicious. Weather outdoors was perfect. Although we had reserved a table inside, we were able to have a choice of in or out when we got there. The waterfall is a little noisy but wonderful. We are already planning our next evening there.

Had a lovely time with my family. Our server (a woman who had her pens laid out in a rainbow) was wonderful. The perfect level of helpful and attentive, very friendly, and engaged in some funny conversation with us. The food was fantastic. I was even able to order a duck leg with my ravioli! We enjoyed our the gravy fries, the Old Fashion cocktail was superb, every loved their meals, and the deserts were very tasty. Everyone loved the vibe of the place as well. It had a slightly upscale feeling (more than a bar/pub), but was very inviting and warm/friendly. They have a brick pizza oven in the back, where the woman who was using it gave us an impromptu (over the top) demonstration which was extremely funny. While the prices weren't terribly high in my opinion (especially compared to other places I've gone). My parents who are very frugal, don't usually go to restaurants like this. They both said they can't wait to come back. So well done Pressroom!

One last note, I was very pleased with how socially distanced the tables were. I've been there before where I didn't think it was terribly crowded, and it was well done. Also the outside seating (even though it's late in the season at this point) looks AMAZING! I can't wait to sit outside with the waterfall and bar.
