We were on a girls weekend in Adelaide and had a wonderful dinner at Press. The food, staff and ambience were all outstanding. Would highly recommend.

Only thing to change - the photo on the booking page made me think that I was booking a table in the upstairs area and not the high tables on the bottom floor. If this were fixed I'm sure others wouldn't make the same mistake.

We went there with friends to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. Upon filling out the booking form, I was asked if our booking was for a special occasion. I ticked the anniversary box. Nothing was mentioned when we were there :(. The atmosphere was great. Loved the booth style seating. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. Food was amazing. We chose the tasting menu. Oh...my...gosh....best bloody option, we had the best of all worlds. Lol. A perfect night to share with friends (while leaving the kids at home). Haha. Thanks Press :)

Venue was great, totally relaxed with a terrific setting. We had a table of three and were seated upstairs which was very nice. Being our first experience at the restaurant without much guidance from our waiter we decided to go with the tasting table $75 pp. after expressing our ideas for food preferences we received 2 entrees to share followed by nothing for an hour. Being a little confused we queried with the waiter what was happening.....he then apologised and we received 2 more entrees followed by 2 mains. We felt we were very much under feed for the price and walked away very disappointed.

My partner and I had a great experience. Service was exceptional and food was absolutely beautiful. Could possibly suggest to add a bottle or two of wine that is a bit more affordable. We would certainly go back, however the wine is just too expensive, putting the meal out of affordability for us. Thank you for having us though.

We really enjoyed our evening at press. We were lucky enough to be seated in an upstairs booth, which added to the experience. Everybody enjoyed the food thoroughly and aside from having to wave down the waiter a few times, the service overall was excellent and knowledgeable.

Was charged for still water - who charges for still water??? And they charged for two bottles at $6 per bottle when we only had one. And they charged for bread, which we didn't ask for. Very average.

The pork buns were delicious, as was my lamb dish, but the pigs ears needed to be crunchier! We made a booking, which meant we were put upstairs - the ambience was better downstairs and given it was a quiet Tuesday lunch, it would’ve been better to be downstairs.

I had the opportunity to eat dinner at several restaurants while in Adelaide and this one was disappointing. Service was great, wine was excellent, but the food was over-salted and over-spiced.

Great food generally and a very cluey waiter. Gave a 4 star not 5 as my Coorong Mulloway was very salty (oversalted!). Other people had it too but their fish was OK. Also the lighting is far too dim. We were unable to read our menus. Either the menus need to be printed in bold or the lights turned up. Overall a good night.

Our first time dining at Press and we weren’t disappointed. We left our choices in the hands of the chef, and chose the $75 feed me menu.

Every dish that came out was perfect! We still can’t believe how good the mashed potato was!

Definitely recommend and we will be back!

Our server (Cameron?) was fantastic too!

Thanks for a great birthday dinner :)

I catch up with my girlfriends here ever May (4th year and counting) and they never disappoint. Super accommodating to dietary requirements as one of us is always pregnant and the vegetarian food is always delicious. We always chose the feed me menu and amazing food always arrives.
See you next May Press.

Everything was wonderful. The beef tartare was different than any I've had before and it was delicious. My snapper was cooked perfectly and the potato mash was smooth, creamy and amazing. My husband's steak frites dinner was beautiful. Wish I lived there so I could go more often!

We had a table upstairs and ordered the smoked fish entree, the Uraidla chicken, and the fish of the day (snapper) with some sides. Although the meals were a little pricey, the food was delicious and the dishes were all quite generous sizes. The brussel sprouts were a little undercooked and tough to cut into but were still very tasty. The atmosphere upstairs was relaxing and although it was busy, it still felt intimate. I took a star off because it was a bit cold and I had to keep my winter coat on throughout the evening. We were served by Mel, who was lovely and very attentive.

We enjoyed our experience in general. Staff were lovely and helpful.
Food was really lovely but noise level did get high when the place filled up. Not sure there’s much you can do about that given the acoustics of the building.
In general we were pretty happy with it.
