Loved the atmosphere, but the bartender was swamped and the mixed drinks were mediocre. Only went for cocktails, though, so can't speak to the food.

Best sea bass ever! The four of us had the best sea bass we've ever eaten, right here at the Press Room. A two-inch thick cut of fish cooked to perfection--tender and juicy meat with crispy skin over a bed of spinach surrounded by an orange reduction. Inexpensive but decent wine list. Service was extremely attentive, albeit delivered by a... More

The Press Room is a decent restaurant and the service is not bad, but my impression is that the quality of the dinners is going slightly downhill. While I know that the owner is from the once famous Yellow Brick Restaurant (which has gone down hill), it clearly is not up to the standards set by the Yellow Brick Restaurant... More

Very unaccommodating to dietary requests. Menu never changes. They don't know how to cook without a ton of butter and cream being involved. Overpriced and uninspired. City snobbery without the quality.

I have been wanting to try this place for quite some time, but had not gotten around to making a reservation until today. I love the place. The selection of oysters was delicious, the ribeye steak was superb. The service was friendly and prompt. And the atmosphere was cozy. I will definitely be back.

My friend and I ate there last night expecting great things. At the end of the meal, we were sorely disappointed. The service was excruciatingly slow. It took 20 minutes to bring out the calamari, which was bland They served bread that was cold. We waited another 35 minutes to bring our main course from the time we finished our... More

Can't go wrong with the Press Room. Friendly, accommodating staff, and beyond-terrific food. Be absolutely sure to call for a reservation.
