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.

At the beginning, we were seated for 10 minutes before our waitress came over to offer drinks and help with the menu. However once she did, everything was wonderful. Great menu, great tasting dishes, good service, friendly staff. Cant wait to return :)

I think we hit an off night. Food wasn’t very hot when it reached us and portions are much smaller then we remember. All new wait staff and not as friendly as previous staff. For the amount of money we spent, I don’t think we’ll be back for awhile. Sad to say because this has been my favorite for some time.

Another perfect meal at the Present Company. The onion lasagna and the tuscan salad were shared as appetizers by my husband and I. For our main course we had the grilled swordfish and a seafood medley that I can’t find on the website right now. We had the chestnut cake for dessert.

Music is way to loud. This could be a nice romantic seething but choice of music ( like try dinner music?) and volume are bad. We even asked to tone done music to no avail.

Our first time here. We had to wait thirty minutes to be seated for our 7:00 reservation for four which unfortunately is particularly hard here since there is no comfortable place to wait. That said, they could not have been more gracious and apologetic even though it was obviously beyond their control. When we were seated we each had the three course fix price dinners and did not have a great deal of duplicate courses in our party so can say definitively that all of plates we had were outstanding. Each were carefully prepared and plated with portion sizes are perfect for their small plate format. The wine list is solid, although limited but their small footprint. Looking forward to going back.

We have been to Present Company quite a few times. Always outstanding and would not hesitate to recommend this as a place to try. Suggest that you view the menu on line to get an understanding of what will be offered to make sure it meets your needs. The food is excellent, the service anticipates your needs and responds before you need to ask. If anything is less than perfect, they will be aware of it and make it right. This is one of the top restaurants in CT.

Present Company is a charming little restaurant in a renovated mill building in the village of Tarriffville on the south end of Granby, CT. The menu is a'la carte with about several meat, fish and pasta entrees to choose. We choose the wild boar ragu with house-made pasta, and it was delicious. For dessert, we both had vanilla panna-cotta with roasted peaches that was also very tasty. An unexpected bonus was a 50 pct discount on a bottle of wine - Thursdays only. Our waitress needs a little more experience in presenting wine and keeping our breadbasket full.
