The Pressroom’s private banquet room was perfect for our rehearsal dinner! The event coordinator was wonderful to work with, the buffet was awesome and plentiful, and the staff was so very accommodating and friendly. It was a delightful evening for our family!


Thanks to the attention and expertise of the Events Manager our evening was absolute perfection. The setting was so lovely, the service was excellent and the food was amazing. We had plated dinners of filet mignon, salmon and vegan spaghetti which delighted all our guests. The appetizers and desserts were exceptional and made the dinner complete. I would unhesitatingly recommend The Pressroom Restaurant for any occasion!


The service, coordination, setting, and food was absolutely perfect!  Our event planner was courteous, professional, and prompt in responding to my questions. Our servers were friendly, efficient, and attentive. Five stars for the Pressroom!
