This is funny. I was literally talking about the restaurant, checked my phone and saw this opportunity to share a review. I am SO IMPRESSED by this restaurant. We were seated immediately per the reservation that we had made. We were gifted a cherry tomato salad as a treat prior to our first course. The food (taste, portion size, presents, etc.) was perfect!!! The service was impeccable. Julia was warm and knowledgeable. The music and lighting created the perfect ambience. Jeff, who I didn’t know was the owner at the time, would periodically look at guests and give them the thumbs-up to ensure that things were going well. It was an inviting gesture. I commented on the bread (OMG!!!) and learned that the chef’s name is Sadie; the same as my daughter’s she cane over and spoke with us. Ethan also came over and met with us, then upon hearing that we have children, he gave us cookies to take home to them. I looked around and noticed that my wife and I were the only people left in the restaurant. I asked what time the restaurant closed. Jeff said “whenever I want, enjoy your time. You have the restaurant to yourself.” The entire staff seemed to enjoy one another, like they were friends who happened to work together. Needless to say, my wife and I had the perfect experience. I truly don’t know how or if it could have been any better. I already have plans to return. Thank you all for an amazing and memorable experience.
If you have not been- go. In today’s age of failing restaurants, we need to save this one.
We had the 5 course chef prix fixe menu. Each course was spectacular. If there was any complaint- there was too much food! I would make the portions just a bit smaller. Hand made ravioli- amazing. Beef Wellington- wonderful. We will be back!
Always a great place to eat - especially when seated at or near the kitchen bar to watch all the prep that goes into the food. And the food is amazing...well worth the 30-minute or so drive to get there from where we live.
Only the second time I've been slightly disappointed here. Service was very slow and our entrees were barely lukewarm. We didn't say anything as it took so long for the food to come out, we didn't want to wait longer. The dessert was on a plate and served with a spoon so we had to chase it all around the plate. I love this restaurant but think it will be a little while before we return. It looked like new wait staff so that might have been the problem.
We absolutely LOVE Present Company! Every time we visit we end up leaving thankful, full of delicious foods and feeling fine! I would recommend this gem to anyone who truly feels passionate about supporting a amazing establishment! If you love real food with real service and really great energy Present Company is the best option around! Jeff, Sadie and Ethan are the finest chefs and all of which have outstanding culinary skills! Scott and Kasey also brought us comfort and consistently kept us laughing! Everyone in the place deserves recognition! Outstanding experience all around!
Sat at the Chef's counter and had the absolute best 10th anniversary dinner/experience ever. The 5 course tasting was out of this world and 5 of the best dishes I have ever had. All 3 chef's were chatty and amazing at their craft. They all communicated beautifully so the kitchen flowed perfectly. Definitely plan to return with friends and enjoy the counter experience again.
Excellent food and service. Will definitely be back again.
Amazing! Consistently great food and experience. Probably one of the best places in New England.
An amazing dining experience as always. Chef and his team do an exemplary job. The seasonal menus are a delight. The food is beautifully prepared and presented. Service is excellent. We can’t wait to go back.
This was our first time dining inside dining since March when Covid-19 hit. We felt very comfortable but feel badly for them for the limited amount of tables. The food, as always, was outstanding as well as the service. Felt good to be "normal" again. We have dined here many times and never a bad meal! Highly recommend!
The new menu offers a variety of great options in all categories. A surprisingly diverse beer and wine selection also allows all diners to create a signature experience. A+ rating in all areas
Been here several times - never disappointed. I always pick something I wouldn't try anywhere else, always amazed. Love this place, it's like my special get away. Highly recommend
First time dining at PC. Viewing menu and pricing before making reservations, would make one think fine dining. I was disappointed in the amateurish service, the very loud music, the drafty dining room that needs adjustment of the exhaust system, and the uncomfortable chairs that were so low to the table I felt I needed a booster seat. However, except for one miscue on one of my courses, (tasting menu), the food was very good.
We're sorry to hear your experience at Present Company was not quite what you were expecting. We appreciate your feedback back, as we continue to try and make everyone's dinning experience exceed expectations.
Love Love Love this restaurant. I was a little disappointed this visit due to the limited menu. It seems they’ve become almost exclusively prix fixe.
Another outstanding meal. New French inspired menu and the flavors were out of this world. The Bouillabaisse was like nothing I’ve ever tasted...took my niece and her husband as birthday gift to her, their first visit and they were blown away. Wonderful experience.
Absolutely fantastic and priced well!
Love the concept with prefix menu. Prefect size restaurant for what they want to accomplish.
Fantastic food and service as always
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.
Our meals were delicious. Always something new and exciting. I especially enjoyed the halibut and french onion soup.
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!
Amazing food, chef greeted us, nice touch.
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 first time at the restaurant. We really enjoyed the food and the ambiance. We will definitely go back.
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!
Superb food, excellent service. Highly recommend this place - best restaurant in Hartford County.
Excellent food and superb service. Small facility so can be noisy if full.
Present Company is a truly special place and not to be missed. The food is exceptional both in concept and execution. The service is outstanding and although it’s actually upscale eating it is warm and friendly. Don’t miss this restaurant!
Simply superb with michelin level creativity and no pretension. Our favorite restaurant hands down!
My wife and I both thoroughly loved our night out at Present Company. Not our first time there and as always food , service and atmosphere exceptional. Anyone who loves truly great food would love this place.
This is one of the most wonderful restaurants on every level. If you are looking for a special,romantic setting with spectacular food this is it!
My favorite place in the whole world!! The most amazing food and chefs and staff!!
Best food around. Creative and beautifully presented. No complaints at all. Great staff and genius kitchen crew
We had a very nice meal. The service was good. Just make sure you like what is on the menu. Everything was nicely presented.
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.
