Wow! I would like to know the meat supplier for this restaurant. I chose the filet mignon and it was like butter. The preparations were normal steakhouse, nothing out of ordinary in particular. But the quality of the main ingredients was just outstanding. The wine list covers a lot of ground, and the server and sommelier suggested wines by the... More

Just great! We went in Napa for wine tasting in different places. I looked to get THE restaurant with THE wine list! We're talking about a serious book! Amazing! Had a bit of oyster and a beef cut to share, just great! And a beautiful Heitz Cellar martha's vineyard 1997… Stunning!

Every course was stunning. The food, spectacular, the service, supreme. We had a party of 20 and five courses. Only one thing to say: Go. Now. Enjoy.

I love this place! Have been here multiple times. I love everything I have eaten. Steaks are fabulous, but the most fabulous thing for me are the potatoes that come out in a skillet that are cooked in duck fat- they are to die for! Great wines! Great service. Pricey.

We were on our honeymoon in Napa and staying at a wonderful place called The Harvest Inn. They did not have a restaurant so we asked them for a few suggestions. The first on there list was Press so we went there our first night in town. We took a bottle of our own wine and ordered the porterhouse steak... More

we had chopped salad, cote de boeuf, mushrooms, brussel sprouts. We could not eat the mushrooms or brussel sprouts and we generally love both of those. The favors in them were just strange and did not go well. The steak was excellent. The salad was not very good either. All in all, was very disappointed in our dinner. The waiter... More

We really enjoyed this meal. This was our first time at Press. We were given a table right in front of the roaring fireplace. It's a beautiful dining room. The wine list is impressive and the cocktails complete and inventive. My Prime Filet was as good as at any big time steakhouse and the creamed Kale side was amazing. I... More

Recently we tried Press with high expectations for food, service and atmosphere even though we knew it was going to be expensive. The food was indeed great, steaks cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was relaxed, a bit like the closed Julia's Kitchen at Copia in Napa, however the service was lacking for the amount charged. Two examples: We ordered a... More

Good atmosphere, service is good & fast . Very friendly staff. Little gem Salad for starter was very good. Fish ( Halibut) Was good. They are specialized in meat , so filet mignon also very good. Desert Chocolate mousse needed 25 minutes to prepare. It was nice .
