I have eaten here several times over the past year or two and they consistently deliver a wonderful meal. Their "tapas" are (very) small plates of tasty tidbits for $4 each or 3 for $10. These are a great starter for the meal or a...More

We had a wonderful dinner at The Press Bistro. The restaurant has a great atmosphere inside. The food was delicious. I had the gnocchi and split the endive salad, and both tasted amazing! I would definitely recommend eating here when you're in downtown Sacrament.

We really enjoyed this place. Very original dishes, nicely presented. The menu had a nice variety of choices, and specials. The prices were reasonable and service was attentive. The place is a bit noisy, so to make it nicer to hear, go early.

Went for special date-night dinner. The restaurant always hits a home run with every dish. Service is great. Atmosphere is casual enough to go in jeans yet upscale enough to be dressed up. Menu doesn't shift a lot but every once in a while there...More
