This was the second time I have tried 626, and I will never go back. First of all our table was the worst ..it was right by the door, had three other tables too close around us, right by the hostess station and right by the bar. It was so loud that we could barely hear each other. We ordered... More

Fab wines, build your own salad menu which is AWESOME for lunch! Amazing grilled cheese and soups too. Very cool old house converted into a restaurant. The owners are wonderful and I have been to several charity events there. The wine list is VERY fine tuned and I have yet to have a wine I did not like. Just a... More

Today I got the grilled cheese sandwich.It is made with three types of cheese and has a delicious flavor.I also got a cup of the soup for the day.It was a spinach and mushroom taste.It... More

Last time we came to Norfolk, Press was closed due to a wedding. So it was on our list of places to go. Its not a large place. But it is comfortable, staff are wonderfully helpful. Good piece of advice, grab your meal on the balcony, not a lot of room, but if you happened to luck it, like we... More

I went with two friends for the drinks. I had the Coco Crush (see pic) and it was excellent. One friend had the strawberry lemonade and the other friend had the blueberry drink (both alcoholic) and they were happy with them. I am diabetic and the waitress was good about checking on some things before I ordered the drink. Their... More

I used to love Press 626 until last night. After buying wine, dinner, AND dessert, and then paying for everything, my 2 friends and I were told we had to leave because they needed the table. Mind you, this was only 5 minutes after signing our checks! We were gathering our things and wrapping up, not like we were there... More

The title says it all! On a short stay in Norfolk, a couple friends and I went here for dinner on a Saturday evening. When we walked in, it was busy, but we were able to be seated right away without a reservation. The dining area is very charming. The lighting is low, because the restaurant is an older house,...

This tiny place is one of our "go-to" date night restaurants and one of the places we often take out of town visitors for brunch-- but do have a reservation and plan to make an evening of it (not always speedy) and for heaven's sake have a champagne cupcake if any there are any left!

On my own for a late lunch today, I found this cafe within an easy walk of the Page House B&B. I strolled past lovely old houses on tree-lined streets to find Press 626 at 626 W. Olney Road. The restaurant itself is in what looks like a stately Ghent neighborhood home. There are a few tables on the porch,... More
