Very good food

This restaurant has been consistently good for more than two decades. There are a number of vegetarian options. The building once housed a printing press and it makes for an interesting decor.

This is one of the best restaurants in town. There is something for all age groups and all food choices. They have vegan, vegetarian , steaks, fish , and burgers. All the food is good. Music later in the evening is fun and Tuesday is trivia night. I have never had a bad experience at The Press! Almost forgot they... More

It starts from the minute you arrive. There is nothing fancy about the place, but the space is huge and while you can have an intimate meal, its not at all crowded even when the restaurant is full. We had a great meal, and every single thing on the menu looked inviting. Sometimes it's foolish to order plain grilled fish... More

This is a very nice cozy restaurant in the Village in Clairemont. Service was great, no issues using groupon (which was nice) and the food was really good. Prices are very reasonable, nice small selections of beer on tap (also bottle beer if you want) and wines. Looking forward to returning and enjoying another meal.

The Press is excellent in every way. Service, appetizers, steaks, wine list all near perfection. We sat outside by the fireplace, which is definitely the best table in the house. Only problem was that the hostess had great difficulty ordering us a taxi to return to our hotel. She just wasn't A-type enough to get a cab to arrive in... More

Great food, friendly service. This is just a great little hometown place. I love the fresh ingredients and menu options. Potato tacquitos are simple but awesome.

My children and I and a few friends went to The Press for dinner a couple of weeks ago...on Wednesday (half off bottles of wine), Everything was wonderful....from the cheese plate appetizer to our meals...and, of course, the wine. The servers were attentive and prompt. The atmosphere welcoming. Although we had to leave around 9 pm, they have music most... More

This is a very small restaurant, ideal for lunch - business man's lunch with the usual fare, nicely prepared and served. Liked the fast service. Didn't like the limited menu.

We have gone to the press several times. We have gone for dinner, we have gone several times to see a band play and our favorite and last visit was on a Saturday. We were excited to find they had happy hour on Saturday with a good selection of beer and wine and yummy snacks.

Friends and I thoroughly enjoyed, once again, the food at The Press. It has long been a standby of ours for both quality and great creativity. Never have we been disappointed. Its soups are unusual and delicious. Its salads are gorgeous, ample and delectable. Its entrees never disappoint and its desserts are the tastiest. Its hot rolls and tapenade always... More
