Never disappointed! Always enjoy myself!! The best place around!!!
Fabulous food and great service. I feel spoiled when ever we dine there.
Our meal met expectations. The service was good but should be great for the pricing.
Food was amazing from start to finish. The dining room was so pretty.
It was a great experience for my whole family.
Wonderful and amazing as always!! Jeff and his team never disappoint!!
Black bass on the web menu not available at time of dinner. Replacement not as inspiring and greens accompanying the halibut were too salty, otherwise starters and deserts were fine .
Wonderful tasting menu and the staff is amazing. Highly recommended even for take out.
By far my fiancé’s and mines favorite restaurant. If we didn’t live over 90 minutes away we would be there more. Such great service and the food is just amazing.
The staff and chefs are very attentive and friendly. We enjoyed immensely sitting at the chefs counter and being able to watch and chat with the chefs about the food they were making. Food and wine pairings were delicious....will definitely go again - probably sooner than we should lol
Awesome food. Had a fun night.
Always a special treat
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Present Company recently and words cannot describe how wonderful our experience was! 5 stars isn’t enough!
The food was fantastic! The quail was the best part. It’s a very small restaurant so it was pretty loud, but worth a try.
This was me and my wife’s first time. We loved the inside, which was rustic and very cool. The noise level was louder than we expected, but wasn’t prohibitive to conversation. We both got the 5 course chef tasting and felt the food was all delicious. Only one dish felt “out there” which we appreciated and timing of dishes was perfect. Several of the dishes seemed to be variations of dishes off the 3 course. Servers were courteous. We will certainly be back!
EXTREMELY COVID UNSAFE!!! Zero safety precautions were taken other than the servers wearing masks. They had a restaurant full of maskless people without dividers or any distance between the tables. I was ~3 feet from a coughing stranger on either side. If anybody in the building had Covid, every other patron and waiter would become infected as well. I literally could not believe that a restaurant in Connecticut could operate this way in the middle of a deadly pandemic when we just yesterday hit the highest number of recorded Covid cases all year. Unbelievable. NO OUTSIDE SEATING OPTION EITHER, which I specifically requested ahead of time. If I had known I wouldn't have gone. Will be self-quarantining for the next two weeks.
The food and service was excellent, though.
Never disappointed with Present Company! Another amazing meal.
Present Company always delivers! We always have a fabulous time and the food never disappoints.
We had the pleasure of sitting at the chef’s counter for our dinner on Friday night. Watching the chefs in action is a real treat. The food, as always, was superb. Each dish is expertly crafted and so beautifully plated. We couldn’t possibly love this place more.
Quality food with amazing service, can’t be beat!
Food and experience at the chef’s counter was amazing as always
This was the best food I have had in years. Truly delicious, at a level that makes you explore what is it in each bite that makes you so ecstatic about it. Service was impeccable and the place has a unique culture about it that makes you want to stay there forever. We spent the weekend trying to develop the flavors we tasted in Present Company, without success (of course...). This was a 5-star experience altogether. Even our 10 year old was appreciative of the flavors. She said it was like she was a judge in Chopped :-) I guess she is a foodie? We will be coming back. Thank you!
Excellent experience and service. Thank you!!!
The experience at Present Company is always a special one. The food is fabulous, and the service is impeccable. One of the best wine selections around.
The food was very well prepared. There are some uncommon ways of preparation which makes the food excellent. The portions are large, we took a fair amount home. I would definitely recommend the Present Company to anyone who likes a special meal.
This was our first indoor dining experience since Covid and couldn’t be happy with our decision. The food, presentation, etc. was excellent as usual. The chance to sit at the bar while watching all chefs prepare the food with masks on. If you are comfortable with doing indoor dining one couldn’t pick a better place .
Food is always great, we love it here, the staff is great
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.
