My wife went here on date night and took advantage of some of the daily specials they had (find them on their website and facebook page), which made it very affordable. The ambiance of the restaurant is very nice. The food is fantastic and you get much larger portions for similar prices in comparison to some of the other "tapas" bars in the area. The service is very prompt and professional and they did not push to get us out as we sat there for hours nursing our wine. We ordered a bottle of wine on special and it was great considering the price. The wine selection is amazing if that is what you are looking for. They have a full bar as well in case anyone is looking for other types of drinks. The restaurant is small so make reservations or get there early.

In all my travels this place tops the list for consistent friendly yet professional service. I have watched many new comers take a seat at the bar and leave a friend of Press 626. It has a neat atmosphere that attracts an interesting cross section of people, yes there is no TV! Cole and Rod provide a great mix of cuisine from casual good value sandwiches to elegant tasteful entrees. A must visit if you are in Norfolk

Right across the street from EVMS and around the corner from CHKD and Norfolk Sentara, this beautiful renovated home is elegant and casual at the same time. My husband and I stopped by after an appointment for quick late lunch and were absolutely charmed by the lovely bartender/server. She was quick to offer us water and a drink. We each chose to have a beer as the weather was a balmy 65 in January. We decided on the Salmon Nicoise salad special. Warm salmon fillet, on a bed of fresh, cool greens dressed with a mustard vinaigrette, with warm diced potatoes, fresh green beans, cherry tomatoes, greek olives on the side. Just what the doctor ordered! The atmosphere is comfortable and well appointed, not at all stuffy.Great place, friendly, professional noninvasive service. Go!

Great ambiance, absolutely the best victuals/had a Italian Pino, Pasqua that was wonderful/Thanks Samuel!..now learning to make reservations!! You will not be disappointed!! PS. Tuesday is deal night..special prices on wines..if you check the website before you go you will get the secret word for the night. Say it, and 25% off price of entree. Ask for table facing the window..and you will feel out of town!!

My wife and I have lived in the tidewater area for 22 years and Press 626 is our top (only?) choice for mid-range affordable dining. The sandwiches, desserts, and coffee are excellent and the soups are good (not great). The atmosphere and service are top notch. We are not bar people but this would be a good choice to have a drink and meet people in classy surroundings. Located in the Ghent area adds to the appeal.
