Summary: Aromatic grills and fresh seafood delights.

With an ambiance that captures the essence of Wine Country, Press offers an unforgettable dining experience featuring a wood-fired grill, rotisserie, and a raw oyster bar. The modern American menu includes high-quality meats like Pennsylvania Dutch milk-fed veal and Berkridge Farms Heritage Pork, as well as Maine-caught Jonah crab. Seafood enthusiasts will be thrilled by the offerings, which range from raw oysters to grand seafood platters. The beef selections are generous and perfectly complemented by sides such as creamed spinach or truffled mac ‘n’ cheese. Dessert is a must-try, with the Valrhona chocolate brownie sundae being a standout. The wine list is a connoisseur's dream, exclusively featuring Napa Valley wines, which include cult favorites and offerings from small producers. Press is a testament to fine dining in a tranquil setting off Highway 29, where guests are charmed by the fireplace, high ceilings, and distinctive décor that includes a ceramic clock from an old New York train station. The restaurant prides itself on having the largest collection of Napa wines globally and presents contemporary Californian dishes that are as sophisticated as they are delicious. Notable dishes include Kusshi oysters with whipped horseradish, citrus-cured snapper with yuzu curd, and white truffle risotto. Desserts are equally impressive, with creations like chestnut-cognac ice cream served over coconut-flavored whipped cream. Press is a true embodiment of Napa's culinary finesse, offering a chic and memorable dining experience.
