We were seated very very close to other diners - absolutely no privacy
I think if I had requested a booth I would be writing a different review

Food was excellent. The round table with high seat backs created an ideal environment for conversation. Right around the corner from Fulton Theater where we walked to a play afterwards. Convenient!

Our usual stop before attending a play at the Fulton Theatre. Nice variety of food to fit all tastes and moods. I had the Duck 2-Ways this time which was cooked perfectly and the cherry glaze was excellent. Always a nice, energetic mood in the place.

My daughter and I have made this part of our "Fulton" night. Dining at The Pressroom makes this evening a more special time for us. We know we will enjoy a great meal and a fabulous show.

WOW ! We enjoyed Sunday Brunch at the Pressroom before the show at the Fulton Theatre. Everything exceeded our expectations ! We were greeted by the hostess and shown to a very comfortable booth. Our server introduced herself and took our drink orders after sharing the daily specials. Even though it was very busy, the noise level was medium. The food arrived after a medium wait-time and was delicious. It had been awhile since we'd been at the Pressroom but we will definitely return more frequently after this nice experience.

We were going to the Fulton Matinee & were able to enjoy a great lunch in a timely manner w/o feeling rushed. It must have been awhile since I had been there since one of my favorite desserts was no longer available.... but that did not stop us from having desert. Thanks!

We went there for Jazz night. It was wonderful. Please keep it going!
I ordered the burger and asked for medium. It was cooked well done. The waiter was wonderful. Very attentive!
I wish there was a way to be able to watch the musicians. They are kind of hidden up front. Otherwise great night was had by all.

Our food was cold and extra salty. Service was very slow and it was very loud. I have been to the restaurant before and enjoyed it but this time it was lacking.

The occasion for this Sunday lunch was to celebrate my mom and my grandmother's birthdays. We were seated on time and promptly had our drink orders taken. We ordered food shortly after and it came within 20 minutes of the order being placed. The downfall of the meal was when a large group of around 10, with 3 young children was sat directly next to us. There wasn't enough space to accommodate their group and they were crowding us out of our space for the remainder of the meal. Conversation became strained because of their loud talking. Some of their group showed up after the initial wave of people because it was a surprise but instead of going to greet them at the door they began shouting as they walked in which was of course disruptive.
Most of the restaurant was unoccupied as we were there within the first open hour on Sunday between 10:30 and 11:30. It seemed unnecessary to seat them in such close proximity to us. The rest of our meal was loud and rushed because it seemed like our sever wanted us to leave to move another table over to be able to seat everyone in their party. We were not even offered a dessert menu or after meal coffee or tea. The food was good but this wasn't quite the experience I was hoping for to celebrate.

The food was pretty good. The service was lacking. Zero smiles, zero warmth, zero enthusiasm. And that’s a big deal.

Always thought it was like an “old” restaurant. Not at all. High backed booths that felt private for sharing good conversation for a group of four. Drinks were great - bar compares with John Jeffries. Entrees and appetizers equally delicious. Will definitely recommend and return.

Six of us met there before a play. Menu was inresesting and a little different from the norm. Our waitress was very helpful with our menu selections. My cod with clams and b and was different and exceptional. Dinner progressed at a nice pace. All liked their entrees and we made it to the theater on time. An enjoyable experience.

Our party of 6 dined at the Pressroom before opening night at the Fulton Theatre. Our experience was great from the hostess who took our coats and seated us, to our wonderful server. Our dinners were prepared in a reasonable time, and were very good. We loved our table and felt we could have good conversation and not be overheard.
