Came here not expecting anything really special but left very satisfied. The location is great if your going to be in the Ghent area of Norfolk. It’s only a couple of blocks away from the main area on Colley Avenue so if the weather is...More

We stopped by Press 626 after an uninspired dinner down the road for dessert and a glass of wine. Brett the sommelier was awesome; the amount of knowledge inside that man is scary. We started with the bubble flight to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We...More

We went for lunch...I got the Italian Crispy Chicken sandwich and my husband got a create-your-own salad. The food was delicious, the wine selections were great ($5 choices for lunch), and the service was excellent.

What a find! I can't believe it has taken us so long to discover this gem. The food was absolutely fabulous. We had the smoked salmon crostini , fresh homemade tomato soup, and a vegan curry that was just perfectly spiced. The almond creme brûlée...More

A friend recommended we try having lunch here. We weren't disappointed. I'm not into wine bars, but this restaurant looked, given the number of smiling patrons, like it has a good one. The restaurant was, thankfully, relatively quiet... no blaring music to cancel out conversations...More
