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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!
