Incredible selection of wine, flights are wonderful showcase for their by the glass list. Staff knowledgeable and friendly. Food good to very good with a few opportunities for improvement (homemade fries soggy, not done correctly). Salads, cheese plate very good, Duck Confit Panini absolutely killer. Favorite spot in Ghent.

Start to finish, this was a wonderful dining experience! Press 626 is located in a fabulous, funky old house with charm and character. The atmosphere inside is wonderful as well, a bit bustling and noisy as we happened to arrive on a Monday, Ladies Night. We chose to be seated at the bar, and more's the better for us, as... More

We visited Press 626 Café and Wine bar on W. Olney Road in the Ghent area of Norfolk. The restaurant is in a converted house and has both a wine bar and Café. We made reservations for the special Sunday Brunch at 11:45 and the place was almost full when we arrived. We were seated immediately in what was likely... More

I went with a friend to 626, and the food was excellent. It hadn't been so good in my last 3-4 outings there, which was why I avoided 626 over the past year or more. But this time it was excellent. The salmon was not dry as it had been in the past on several occasions; it was very tasty... More

Our first visit was for a late lunch and I truly loved my Hippie Chick but had something floating in my soda. Our second visit was for Sunday Brunch and the Duck Gravy & Biscuits were very tasty. I had only one problem here and it was the ice, each drink I ordered on both visits had something floating in... More

My cousin and I went to have wine. We end up staying for hours! Had the cheese platter, then decided we would stay for dinner. The grilled cheese is amazing!!! We couldn't resist the desserts either. Chocolate Moose and Caramel Salted Cheesecake are delicious! Great atmosphere, friendly service and reasonable prices.

I first encountered Press 626 in March 2014 dining solo. Since then I have shared the experience with my shipmates returning from deployment and to my new fiancé and me it is "Our Place". The food is amazing and fresh, changing seasonally. Very knowledgable staff and the wine tasting events are not to be missed! The owners and staff make... More

Had the pleasure of having lunch here with my daughter earlier this month. Had a delicious lunch combo of grilled cheese sandwich and asparagus soup (the soup of the day). My daughter had a different grilled cheese sandwich served with a mountain of delicious french fries. She rates it as her favorite restaurant in Norfolk; I can't wait to visit... More
