We had a very good meal here. I liked the crab bisque very much and everyone enjoyed their choices as well. It’s a large “industrial” space with tables and booths. There’s a bar as well. The service was very good and attentive. Recommend!

Some of the most enjoyable food I’ve had in a long time! Everything tasted amazing, including our drinks! I’m so glad we had room for dessert because it was an amazing addition to the meal.

If you are looking for an informal place to eat before going to the Fulton Theater this is a nice place to try. Service was good and the food reasonably priced. Nice menu: nothing 'weird' but there are some different entrees.

The staff at The Pressroom was very accommodating to quickly make room for our large group coming from the convention center. I had the Funghi Pizza and it was excellent!
