Everything about this place is beyond outstanding. honourable mention for the steak tartare, their take on the dish is unlike any version I have had before while not straying too far from the traditional elements.

Party of four had the " Feed Me " menu with a house chosen mix of food that was delectable and well spaced. Quantity per person was only just adequate and that would be our only criticism .
Be prepared for your card to take a relative beating!

The service, the food, the atmosphere! It was amazing! 10/10! Could not fault a single thing. Everyone was so attentive and just genuine. Their food and wine was magnificent. Highly recommend the “let us feed you” option. You won’t regret it! Amazing night!

Really good service and great variety on the menu. Steak was rather smokey - a lot more than what was expected.

We just had a terrible dinner experience at Press.
The food was average - not up to its usual standard, and the service was shocking. The person who looked after us was incredibly rude - my parents who do not speak English fluently even picked up on her attitude and felt very uncomfortable: snarky looks and sharp movements...This is not the service we are used to at Press.
We crossed a line when she rolled her eyes at our request to get take away boxes.
The restaurant was not busy overall but somehow it took 3 and a half hours to go through the tasting menu. Very long wait in between dishes. Wine not coming with the food. The music was turned up for some reason during the night, it became very loud and hard to have a conversation over dinner.

It used to be one of our favorite go-to in Adelaide but this last meal was a letdown.

Enjoyable food, friendly staff!
We ordered both steaks, kingfish sashimi, smoked fish croquettes, and grilled broccolini.
We sat upstairs so we didn’t have to share a table with someone but were seated between two large groups which wasn’t great due to the loudness.
Everything was enjoyable and can’t wait to come back

We all enjoyed a great set menu for a Christmas celebration. It was plentiful and delicious. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the luncheon. Great venue for parties that want to hear each other converse!

Service was good,Main Course very nice ,,the Starters were very meager and did not represent good value.
Price for everything was up there,particularly the Wine.
Similar experience available elsewhere at less cost
Don’t mind paying for quality,but this was excessive

The food was exceptional in terms of quality and the time it took to come out.

I also want to compliment the staff in their service by always looking after us whether it be more wine or water or food.

Thank you for the hospitality!!

Always fantastic to visit.

Georgie was such a wonderful host and looked after us really well. shes a keeper!
She remembered us from a previous visit when she first started and must say was very impressed!

Only concern i had was we didn't feel like there was enough food as per usual.

My guests were celiac - however my partner and i wasn't and felt a little underwhelmed with the quantity of the food brought out per dish.

other than this, we still love Press and will always come back!

The menu didn’t mention that the fish contained meat, much to my piscitarian companion’s concern. The waitress offered to replace it with another dish. My friend was much gratified but said just to replace the broth and reserve the fish with vegetables. A good attitude on the waitress’s part.
The food was excellent as always.

Our dinner experience at Press was truly wonderful. We went a little earlier than the usual crowd as it got busier a little later but our server was very attentive. The food choices were great, fresh oysters, tuna sashimi, squid and pork belly were our choices and each dish was well prepared and nicely presented. The wine list is well curated and our server helped us make a good choice. A first class experience.

Food was fantastic as usual and the service was excellent. Unfortunately we sat downstairs for the first time and it was rather loud, so we will opt to sit upstairs in future.

The staff were very accommodating as I originally booked for two but they were able to have three. It was very noisy downstairs and as I have a cochlear implant a booth became available upstairs and we were able to move, most appreciated. Loved the pineapple bombe Alaska!

ordered 2 vegetable dishes and 2 mains. Vegetable dishes came out first thinking that the mains will came not long after. half and hour later still no mains and vegetables was getting cold so had no choice but to eat vegetables first. Once we completed the vegetables, they cleared the table and 20 min after the mains came out. everyone else had their vegetables with their mains, except us. Food was great besides this issue..
probably won't come back again, which is a shame

We had the set price menu which provided a very generous amount of food. The highlights were tuna sashimi, salad , squid and porterhouse steak. The veal croquettes were disappointing to me both in taste and texture. Faultless service was provided by all staff on the night . We particularly appreciated being asked about the timing of the main courses and desserts.

We had the tasting plate which enabled us to try many dishes all of which were very enjoyable. The vegetables especially were so flavoursome. Excellent service, the staff could not have been more attentive. Also the music was excellent and totally to my taste and a pleasant volume.
Would highly recommend this restaurant.
