New French Menu is outstanding! Service, atmosphere and quality is always exceptional. Romantic, some of the very best food in the area. Brick walls so a little loud.

Food was outstanding as always! I had the Salad Maison and Lobster and Crab Mitonnee and would recommend both. I sat at the counter, which is the way to go, for dinner after a late meeting. The atmosphere was relaxed and the service was great. Thanks again for a great meal!

We were not told ahead of time that we would be required to order off the Valentines day Prix Fixe menu. We were hoping to have ordered off of the regular menu. This special menu was double the price and used many luxury ingredients (lobster, shrimp, etc) that are always good and rarely creative. We were interested in the seasonal menu and found this to be lackluster despite being twice the price.

This was our 3rd time dining at Present Company. As each time before, the food exceeded our expectations. The Valentines menu was outstanding. Every course was absolutely delicious. Halibut is my favorite fish, but Chef’s Jeff’s was the best ever. The venison almost melted in my mouth, so tender and flavorful. The passionfruit tart for dessert was sublime. We highly recommend sitting at the chef’s counter and enjoying the perfectly paired wines.

The Food, service and ambience were excellent. A little pricy though. Not sure if it was because there was a special Valentine’s menu or it’s always that expensive. You got a 4 course meal, 2 options per course, (small plates), for $96 plus tax per person, with a bottle of wine and tip the bill for 2 was over $300.

Awesome food. Great place. Best food in the area. Jeff Lizotte is clearly the best chef in the farmington valley and probably one of the best in the state! Totally worth the experience if you can make it happen.

We came to try out with Valentine’s Day and the food and wine pairings exceeded my expectations! The atmosphere was electric with people having the pleasure of great food and company. From my seat I had a great view of the chef and sous chefs. It is clear that they care about the quality and execution of the dishes they serve, being attentive to the work and at the same time, being attentive to the pleasure they are bringing. I’ve eaten at excellent eateries in many places and am so pleased to have this gem in our backyard!

The food was incredible! Wish I could have sat at the counter as I found myself watching the chefs the whole time, anyway. All of the dishes we ordered on the menu were outstanding and better than the last. Worth every penny and I can’t wait to go back!

What an amazing place, I can’t believe it took us so long to get there. Location is easy to get to, decor was beautiful and service was top notch. Food has playful and tasty, we made sure we tried foods we haven’t had and some we love and were very pleased with both. I have already recommended the place to friends and we are looking forward to our next opportunity to visit.

Wonderful food and service! We ordered several items individually and shared and it was a great way to sample their menu. All were great but our favorites were the celery root, cod and lobster.

A wonderful dining experience in a unique, historic building. The service was attentive and friendly but not overbearing, and the open kitchen was a fascinating experience not available at most restaurants in the area. The food was out of this world- a mix of interesting flavors, delicate textures and beautiful presentation. We had the chef’s tasting menu with wine pairings, which was a spectacular dining experience the quality and creativity of which you would expect in a big city, with a small town, local feel. Not to be missed!

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.
