The most amazing restaurant in Connecticut. Outstanding menu, food prep, presentation and service. The owner came out and hung with us for a while. It is just so good.

This is in my top three favorite dining experiences- sit at the chef’s counter, order seasonal, farm to table food. Delicious and just a wonderful experience.

Upon arrival we were greeted graciously and seated quickly. The hostess acknowledge our anniversary. Our server presented us with complimentary Prosecco! How thoughtful.
The food was excellent, well presented and served in a timely fashion.

Overall, I would highly recommend.

I was expecting something pretty special based on write ups and recommendations but I have to say that the food was a bit overcooked and over salted. I also didn’t enjoy having a table right next to a bathroom. Overall, it was a disappointment.

Everything was great. My only complaint was the speaker was straight over my head, and at times was really loud. I couldn’t have a decent conversation.

Chef Jeff and his team do an outstanding job when it comes to providing a delicious meal and experience. From the moment we walked in we were taken care by the staff during the entirety of our dining experience. Present a Company does an awesome job of highlighting ingredients you won’t see at a typical restaurant.

10/10 recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Chef Jeffrey is at the top of his game. Sit at the chef’s counter and engage with them. Ask questions and learn about how the ingredients are sourced and the dishes prepared. The tasting menu with the wine pairings is definitely the way to go. They obviously care deeply about the food they serve, how it’s presented and your experience at the restaurant.

Excellent food and a solid performance by the culinary team. The portions are on the smaller side however they were flavorful and very well presented.

Beer and wine only which I failed to remember this from our last visit and as always we had great service.

We went to dinner at the Present company for my birthday on a Friday night in December. The restaurant was very crowded and loud. The service was slow, and it took a while to put our drink/dinner order in.

The prix fix menu is a good idea, allowing you taste different dishes. The portions are very generous, and we all got too full with the second course. The food is eclectic and very good. I am not sure we would return on a weekend, but would give another try when the restaurant is less busy. The noise and slow service was disappointing.

I chose Present Company for my birthday celebration and it was an amazing dining experience. My party of 4 sat around the Chef’s Corner and three out of the four of us chose the Chef’s selection 5 course meal with pairings. The fourth person picked off of the menu.

I am not a wine drinker so the staff paired my courses with beer and they did a phenomenal job on coordinating that. The type of beer enhanced the flavor of the food and made it such an enjoyable experience.

We enjoyed the atmosphere and the interactions with Chef Jeff, Chef Ethan, and Sadie.

The courses were mouth watering delicious and being able to watch the magic being created made the evening even more fun.

Present Company never disappoints - every visit the menu is unique and selections are delicious. Our waitress, Alyssa, provided gracious, friendly and helpful service to our party of 6 with the skills of a veteran server. Can’t wait to try the next menu!

Good food, excellent presentation,good service,and the price was right!! However..... if you see an item on their menu on their website it might not be available at the restaurant. There were at least 4 items that were not on the restaurant menu but were on the website menu and if you have a picky person in your party there may be a problem

Chef Jeff is not only one of the top 3 chefs in the state but he is a gracious and welcoming host. His restaurant is cozy , his food is exquisite and the value of his Prix-fixe menu is unbeatable. I highly recommend this restaurant. His cuisine changes quarterly so his restaurant is super fun to visit with the changing seasons.

Just went on the spur of the moment because we know we’ll always be so pleased by our food.
We had the 3 course Tuscan meal which we’ve had before and loved. Appetizer: Onion Lasagna . Entree: Swordfish with truffle squid risotto Dessert: Chestnut Cake (mine)
Appetizer: Artichokes Entree: Tagliatelle with boar
Dessert: Chestnut cake (husband)
I don’t do the food justice by abbreviating the description so I suggest you go to the website and hit Tuscan dinner menu and read in full. It says it all.
We savored every last bite! Jeffrey, the owner and talented chef beyond expectations, is a magician behind his stove!!
They have service at the counter so you can observe what he prepares, do It once, it’s fun. I say it because you’ll go back again and possibly eat in the dining room next or at at one of the high top tables in the bar area. Not my thing because I’m of an older generation and like a traditional table, more comfortable for me.
But the higher tables are coveted as well by more agile diners,
the food is marvelous either way!
By the way they have a good wine list and Thursday nights they offer 1/2 off on bottles, another enticement and fine value.
Just to add a note: my husband and I frequent restaurants of this caliber 90% of the time so we appreciate and understand fine food. And for anyone else who does as well it will be on your list of fine dining experiences!!
Happy holidays to all!

We have been to Present Company quite a few times and it's always very good. Food is always outstanding and the kitchen is always consistent: good presentation, food served at the correct temperature, cooked to perfection.

One somewhat minor annoyance on our most recent visit. This past Saturday night there was one table in our dining area that was very loud and I am disappointed that the staff did not address the situation. Several tables around us were visibly upset, as were we.

We will definitely revisit Present Company again in the future -- hopefully for a more quiet evening out.

Exceptional. Food, ambience, service all exceptional. Location is a bit off the beaten path, but well worth the trip. I had the five course chefs tasting menu - a bit pricey but so worth it, especially if it’s a special occasion. I will definitely be back!!

While the food was good and unique for this area, the service was so horrible that it completely overshadowed the enjoyment of the food. We had a reservation and our table was ready, but the hostess walked away and we were left waiting for quite awhile until another hostess sat us. Then it took forever for a waitress to appear. The service the entire night was so abrupt that it felt like the waitstaff was on rollerblades whizzing by and throwing our plates on the table and moving on. No one ever asked if we needed drink refills or how our food was. Then they came and threw the dessert menu at us. I have never had an experience like that.
We had been big fans of The Mill at 2T which occupied the space and we were glad they kept the same decor. Unfortunately- they did not come close to retaining the same level of service.
Despite liking the food, we would never go back. It was actually an uncomfortable experience which went beyond inattentive and rushed- we felt like we were eating on an assembly line.

The food is beyond good with a focus on seasonal and such great flavors. You are full when you leave but you have to eat everything it’s that good. Only problem is that even though I love the style, the door lets in a lot of cold air and some of the chairs are metal so I had to have my coat on my shoulders and was cold almost the whole time.

We sat at the kitchen bar for the first time and watched Jeff and his team. Fascinating and also fun to see how a well-run kitchen operates. The food is very innovative: onion lasagne was delicious. My husband had the octopus and was very pleased. I ordered panna cotta for dessert, not really knowing what it is. Not sure I would get it again but I note that I ate every bite. Present Company is becoming a favorite destination for us.
