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!

Kevin was fantastic. We went to dinner to celebrate our anniversary, and he made our night so special! It was a pleasure getting to know him and sampling some of his unique and delicious cocktails! We will be back!

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.

We had the gravy fries. I had the tagliatelle, my husband had the bouillabaisse, and my mother in law had the ceviche. It was all delicious!

Our meals were delicious (a large salad and a chicken dish), we had a lovely table right in the front window, and the service was warm and attentive. As always, the Pressroom made our pre-theatre dinner a real treat.

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

First time I had a bruschetta made with sour dough bread. Not good. The peach tart dessert was lackluster.

Menu was much smaller than I had anticipated. We started with the Gravy fries, which were good,and then split the fish tacos which , both my wife and I said we would not order again. For dinner my wife liked the field goat salad, and I thought my hot pepperoni pizza was excellent. We had the peach pie for dessert and it was underwhelming. The service was good and the seating near the front windows was nice. I would definitely go back for the pizza, but that is about it.

First time trying this place out and was not disappointed! Kevin was our server and bartender and did an amazing job at both! Service was friendly and prompt. Food was exceptional and outstanding. We had the fresh guacamole and chips, gravy fries, hamlet pizza and steak frites. Already looking forward to coming back again and trying more dishes out!

Our server was wonderful and appetizer was different and tasty.
We were accommodated with splitting the large salad and returning the pizza because it was over cooked.
We will return for outdoor dining next time.
Please turn the music down in the park bar as it was too loud to enjoy!
Thank you.
