We were visiting our son and he recommended Press 626. We were pleasantly surprised from the moment we walked in.. Cozy, friendly and immediately felt like we were welcome .. The atmosphere, quality of the door and service exceeded my expectations.. I had a Bloody Mary that was one of the best I have had. Highly recommend it!

Had lunch here for the first time and I'll return. Delightful café in an old house that I have passed by and admired many times. Tuna melt and mixed greens with shrimp scampi were delicious.

We visited here for a casual Tuesday meal. My duck was light and accompanied by seasonal vegetables. We intend to return with friends to do the extensive wine menu justice!

Wonderful food. Blair our server was extremely knowledgeable and accomodating. Made for a terrific dinner. I live out of the state, but looks like a great neighbor restaurant. Enjoy all!

Friendly staff, chic environment, tasty menu, and cool location. Try this place! You'll like it! I live nearby and mostly go on Sundays for brunch, but evenings are great, too, especially if you're out on a date. :)

I was in town and decided to look for a place with good wine and a bit to eat. I was blown away with this place. Great character, great wine, and even better food. Blew me away. The staff knew wine so well and made great recommendations. Couldn't be happier and can't recommend it enough.

You will not be disappointed here. Interesting, adventurous and quite delicious offerings, in both food, wine and spirits. Friendly, professional and knowledgable staff. Portions are not all that large but presentation, taste and attention to detail make up for that.
