This is a little bistro I found with a Google search for Restaurants Near Me when I was in unfamiliar territory, downtown Norfolk Virginia after a doctor's appointment. Press 626 was within walking distance from "My Location." Press 626 is a small place that looks like it could have been someone's home in a prior life but today is a... More

My wife and I ate lunch at Press recently for our first visit. It is a quaint and funky place with unusual menu choices and a large wine inventory. We had a good time, the service was friendly and my tomato soup and cubana sandwich was terriffic.

Arrived on a Friday around 6 pm and the friendly server told us about their happy hour specials -- half price glasses of wine and discounted small plates, buy one get a second half price. This turned out to be the perfect dinner option for us as we enjoyed perfectly prepared scallops and salsa, delicious rich gnocchi and a separate... More

We went on Christmas Eve for lunch and they opened at 12 pm instead of 11 am. I got there at 11:15, and it was pouring. They let me come in and wait for my friend, and gave us some water while we waited for noon to hit. We ordered some coffee, which they served in a french press pot.... More

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

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
