Very Good Sunday Brunch with Very Interesting Menu, Excellent Service, and Food

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... read 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.

Beautiful style and very comfortable... I had the Ahi and it was very tasty. Server was awesome. Definitely a stop next time I'm back in Virginia.

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

During the past few months, we had 2 nice experiences at 626 but the last experience turned us off to the restaurant to the extent that we doubt we will return. The service was adequate. The food was tasty but not exceptional. When ordering, we asked the cost of the special (told $22 by the server) and let her know... More

My plate was scrapped clean...it was that good! ** If you have a sweet tooth --> ORDER their famous CHAMPAGNE CUPCAKE...it is out of... More

Just moved to Norfolk and was in walking distance. Converted Victorian home which means they try to fit too many seats in a room. Ahi & scallop appetizers were good. Beer was warm and server offered to chill it. Unfortunately that didn't work. Entrée' was good, however side dish was luke-warm at best. If you enjoy appetizers & wine then... More
