Enjoyed Press for lunch twice while visiting the area. The food was wonderful and service outstanding. Very pretty view from restaurant. Conversation friendly atmosphere. I would return to Press on my next visit to the area.

My brother and I visited St. Helena in October, 2013 for a few days of winery touring. We arrived Thursday afternoon (October 3) and ate at Press for dinner Thursday night. The food was exceptional--I had steak tartare to start followed by rare filet, which was prepared perfectly. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable but not pushy. The wine service... More

While I usually dine at the bar no matter where I go, I ReaLLy wanted the bacon sampler at PRESS and my understanding is that it's a bar only item. Still really like the idea of the bacon sampler, I think it's a little on the pricey side, but the presentation is simply awful. The 7 strips of bacon from... More

I have eaten at Press several times including twice in the past 6 months. This time we ate in the bar which is first come first served but if you want to eat in the restaurant you absolutely need a reservation. (especially on the weekend) The steaks are certainly the star of the menu and I would recommend the Wagyu... More

My wife and I were the first ones to arrive at 5 pm. The first things we notice was the beautiful large room with the high ceiling. But, this turned out to be a problem once other guests arrived. It got noisier and then we noticed how close the tables are to each other. We could even hear the conversation... More

Press is a place to go when you want to be at a significant place. It has presence and a nice atmosphere, but be prepared for an expensive meal if you dine here. My 14-ounce ribeye was $51 without any sides, which cost extra ($13 or so). The steaks were great, cooked perfectly. The sides (mushrooms, asparagus, fries) and appetizers... More

Great meal extensive wine list available on an iPad. Only problem was that there might have been too many choices. Service was on point throughout, steak dry aged for 28 days was incredible was very pricey but One of best meals I ever had so I didn't mind the expense
