Julie's Reviews
 
For centuries, cafes the world over have provided patrons with entertainment that draws on all walks of life. In these gathering places of art, politics, fashion, and everyday events, cafe-goers partake in a unique convergence of eclectic culture and traditional cuisine. Parisian-inspired Cafe de la Presse continues the trend with international literature, classic fare, and the age-old pastime of dining, relaxing, and conversing in a vibrant atmosphere.

"We invited friends to join us here for dinner on a Friday night. We had a relatively quiet table in a booth near the street window. Charcuterie plate for the table was rather meager for $24, but the items were good. Three of us ordered duck leg confit and it was delicious. The other ordered the cassoulet, of which he consumed every bite. A white Quincy Sauvignon Blanc wine and a red Bordeaux were both good. Service was attentive and friendly. We come here a lot. It's not the trendiest, hippest place, but very reliable and pleasant."

"We cannot seem to stay away whenever we are going to the Disney Concert Hall. Even if we just plan to have cheese and wine, the 3-course menu always pulls us in. This time, it was a delicious autumn salad with eggplant caviar, mushrooms, asparagus and unknown and wonderful other things on it. A crab salad with tomato gelee was also great. Main courses were beef tenderloin and jidori chicken. The chicken was the least successful of all the dishes, as it was kind of mushy. Wines were excellent, and very well chosen by Sylvestre (I think that is the sommelier). Service as always was excellent, and they paid attention to the timing, because we had a concert next door. Will always come back."
