I had the steak and man had the hamburger. Both were great but hamburger rates way up there. Apple butter creme brûlée was over the top

Short rib & hot honey pizza to start A-mazing. Chicken for my entree, delicious! Full of flavor & so tender. The Pressroom has so much to offer with their own uniqueness in food & atmosphere. Always a pleasure to visit this restaurant. The staff couldn’t be any better! We brought our 1 year old with us & the attention they gave her was outstanding. Thank you Pressroom family for making our rare night out a loving & memorable one. We can’t stop talking about the wonderful time that we had!

We haven’t been to the Pressroom in quite some time. The food was very good, our server was very attentive, it was a slow night which was a little surprising the restaurant wasn’t more busy. We had our toddler with us and his kids portion was really big. He really enjoyed it. I ordered the grilled chicken and my husband got pizza. Everything was seasoned very well and had lots of flavor. A lovely night out for our little family.

We absolutely adore the PressRoom! Love the outside patio, which had just closed for the season prior to our visit this time. 😑. So we enjoyed our food and drink inside!
We were blessed with Kevin and Justin as servers - wanted to mention these guys specifically because they were outstanding. Great with information/recommendations and conversation. (Super attentive without hovering.)
Had the tagliatelle with shrimp (5 stars - absolutely recommend) and the Field and Goat salad (ditto). The grapefruit fizz and Moscow Mule were both also worthy of mention. So.very.very.GOOD! Can't wait for our next stop in Lancaster!

I was very impressed with the Pressroom. Everything I had to eat was amazing. But if you there for appetizers. I suggest the duck fries with gravy and wings. AMAZING!!

Definitely a staple of Lancaster restaurants. Lucky enough to reserve a table on First Friday with it packed on the floor and at the bar. Incredible food and drinks, they even fulfilled my request through here for some end-of-meal champagne.

Went to The Pressroom after a Fulton Theater matinee. We got there right as it opened at our 5pm reservation time. Clayton, our waiter, checked in the right amount of times and was very nice! We both had the Bistro Steak Frites and they were incredible. The Moscow Mules we had were also very delicious! Can’t wait to get back to The Pressroom!

We made a reservation through open table and it was super easy. We were sat in a great seat right away. Our servers timing was great as was his demeanor and attitude! The food was delicious and the options given made it personal. I ordered the burger and it was so good I wanted to finish every bite even when I was filled to the brim. The entire restaurant was nice and every table seemed to be doing well. I would go again and recommend!

We ordered the bruschetta and it was delicious. However, we found hair in the food. Our entrees came up next and we also found hair in the field and goat cheese salad.

The food was great, service was nice and accommodating. I just did not appreciate the cleanliness.

Another fabulous meal! Chef Daniel Quishpe never disappoints! Definitely get the ceviche it is amazing! The fresh pasta with shrimp and corn was light and flavorful, the burger has a fantastic savory sweet mix of toppings and the steak frites are always on point! Top that off with great cocktails and service and it was a fantastic anniversary dinner with friends!

My mother was in town from Houston Texas, made this reservation as I seen the restaurant through the window recently and it looked very upbeat and as if the customers were enjoying themselves. I was right, perfect location for a guest! And the food was amazing. Thank you

The sous vide ribs should be taken off the menu. They tasted like cheese and upset our stomachs.
