Cress offers locally grown foods, sustaintable seafood and overall excellent quality. I especially enjoy Chef Hari's Indian foods and curries.

We are sorry to read that, we wish you would have spoken to me, the general manager/co-owner, that night. The hostess was rushing to get your table set-up in the window because you wanted to change locations. In doing so, she did not know that...More

Answering my own question. Dug further and you are open now only for ticket based events. That will not serve my purpose for 1/18/18. We will try for another time in the future. Thank you so much
