Delicious! I had the luncheon grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup and a glass of peach champagne. The menu stated that the grilled cheese was award winning and it was yummy! Perfect combination for a nippy day. The atmosphere was clean and charming.

The birthday girl chose Press 626. It was our first visit and we were totally impressed. Every small plate, salad, main course and sandwich was delicious! We all shared our plates...and the desserts were very good especially the bread pudding! We would have posted photos but we ate everything🤔

This is a small, historic home in downtown Norfolk. Food was exceptional, as was the wine list. Well worth the visit

Press 626 has a quaint atmosphere and is nicely done with a long bar for ample seating. There are a limited number of tables and they are somewhat "cozy", as in close to each other. Not great for a private conversation and a bit on the noisy side when it gets busy. The fact that they have a reasonable size... More

Seven of us who had attended a choral concert a short walk away sashayed in at about 9 pm for drinks and chatting, expecting to have quite a wait. Nope, we were seated right away. The restaurant is a converted residence, so the seating is limited. We sat in what must have been the residents' bay window, kitchen eat-in nook.... More

I have eaten at Press several times and every time I not only leave having a full belly, but thinking "Man, that was a blast". I always go for their incredible Sunday Brunch, which is a MUST if you want to kick off your Sunday with all kinds of good vibes. First off, excellent wine list. Truly exceptional and well... More

After years of seeing this place and passing it by, my wife and I decided to have dinner this evening. The only word to describe our experience is WOW!!! The evening could not have been better! Rachael, our server, was efficient and effervescent and could not do enough to ensure our evening and dinner was enjoyable. We met two of... More

Stopped in for lunch on the recommendation of a co-worker. Not a lot of parking, there are about 5 spots around back and the rest is going to be on the street. The entrance is charming and the inside is just the same. It's quaint and there isn't a ton of seating, but there is enough, and you can seat... More

I've eaten at Press 626 several times since moving to Norfolk. I love it! Chef Hannah is amazing. The menu is complex and unique. I had the mushroom ragu; it was perfect. I love that I can ask for a certain type of wine and get exactly what I ask for...
