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...

We rented the whole Restaurant for my husbands surprise 60th Birthday Party. From the time the arrangements started until the very end Kiera and the entire staff, including the owner were amazing. The food, the drinks, the hospitality were at their finest. All 50 people that attended raved over the service, the food and the wine. Thanks Press 626 for... More

Our monthly Girls' Night Out (GNO) returned to Press 626 for the first time in a year or two. It was wonderful!! Appetizers were BOGO half price and certain wines by the glass were also half price. Because it was a Monday night, they allowed us to make a reservation for six. It is an old home which has been... More

We ducked into this very well appointed hip and cool restaurant and wine bar on a Friday night without a reservation wihile a family member was hospitalized at Sentara General Hospital (it's across the street). What I found was a packed place with very friendly staff and a host (Ty) that promised to find us a seat. The bartenderess was... More

Had the beet and goat cheese salad. Really yummy. I've ordered this same salad at subsequent restaurants but nothing compares to this one. Very impressed.

My wife and I were near the SENTARA Hospital Complex in Norfolk about lunch time and had a little extra time to kill before her medial appointment.

My husband and I love Press but my kids have never been. My son turned 16 today so we went the first time as a family. I had a candy bar bouquet delivered to the restaurant earlier and Press had it on one of their best tables. My son and husband had steak frites and my daughter had lamb. All... More

I have visited press 626 several times. I have always had a great meal and pairings with my wine. With the small number of seating tables inside, so would recommend a reservation to be safe.
