At press*, we bring the best products from our patch of the earth to the table, and have fun doing it. Our kitchen is open all day for a quick bite to eat, or to settle in for a few hours. Bookings are taken for our upstairs loft area (walk-ins are welcome downstairs).

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!

We had a great meal, one of our party has difficulty hearing and the helpful staff showed us to a table
near the door which was much quieter, service and food were outstanding and we would like to go back

Still a stand out in Adelaide - continues to be one of the city's best. Wonderful food, great local wines, exceptional service (knowledgable with personality!) and lovely fit out. Will be back.

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.

Was a great experience! Food was absolutely amazing we found it so hard to narrow down our choices so we may have over ordered and ended up rolling out of the restaurant! Fantastic guys!!!

We ordered beef both rare, also stared verbally that we wanted rare. The steaks came medium, the experience was terrible. When I advised the waiter she say “I apologise” that’s it. Did not offer anything to address the issue. The bill came with no adjustment(s). I wanted to pay for the drinks & leave but paid in full. NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

Good menu, choices of big or small dishes. Love the cooked veggie w varieties of colourful veggies. Minute steak was right size for small eater, meat pie was excellent w minimum pastry. Service was good. All in all we had a lovely lunch for my husband’s birthday.

Without a doubt one of Adelaide's best restaurants. Fresh, clever and interesting food, awesome wines by the glass, knowledgeable, professional, engaging and friendly staff and a great looking venue. Have been 6 times now and I reckon it just keeps getting better. Always something new and interesting to try on the menu!

After moving from the nominated booth we were well seated and much more comfortable.
We chose the Feed Me option and they were able to accommodate the no pork and no offal request.
The food was superb with the stand out being the crab pasta and the beef.
there was plenty of food.
I would rate this up with Pendolino or Bently in Sydney and much better priced.
Get rid of the booths and put in tables and chairs.

Service and venue were great. However the menu was quite limited I thought in terms of variety and the only thing that appealed to me was the burger. This was beef and I wouldn't have thought I needed to say I wanted a burger cooked through but...seems I should have because it was raw in the middle! However the accompanying onion rings were awesome!
I also thought overall things were quite over priced for wahat they were.

Food was sensational, however; a few service issues had significant impact on our experience. Sparkling wine served without any chiller and when obtained no ice in chiller. Additionally, the staff did. Or extend themselves in anyway to create a welcoming experience, we were an impost on their night.
I have visited many times before in upstairs area, not sure if such a stark contrast should exist, but the experience was worlds apart. For me to come again or recommend it would be to not dine downstairs.

We had the feed me menu for lunch at $49 per person. Whilst food was tasty, there wasn’t a lot of food - compared to other feed me menus. Great service and a great lunch venue.

Good food, decent wine selection, nice ambiance upstairs. Let down by very inattentive service. Flagging down waiting staff once is frustrating but having to do this for every step of the meal is very disappointing. Please ask your staff to look at tables they are walking past rather than walk past blindly!

This place use to be top notch but had gone the way of being more snobby without anything to really show for it. Service has gone down and food is starting to slip.

My partner and I had a delicious dinner at Press*. We were seated at one of their communal tables downstairs, on high stools which were comfortable enough - a hook for your handbag would be a nice addition, though. Ambience was quite nice.
There was only one option of vegetarian main, but we made up for it by ordering a few side dishes, which were actually nicer than the main. We ordered the raspberry bombe alaska for dessert, which was excellent. Would definitely recommend Press* and come back next time we're in Adelaide.

Amazing food and customer service. My partner started with the beef tartare one of the best he has tasted. We ordered the two specials the Barra and the scotch fillet with the beetroot, red cabbage ... and the waitress suggested which was one of her favorites the roast pumpkin .... to accompany our main meals. Not many places you visit where the flavor has been carefully considered for each element of all the dishes we selected.
Will definitely return, my only disappointment is why we haven’t been dining here before now.
