Excellent food, excellent restaurant.
We had 2 three course meals. Just 2 remarks to improve quality and reach perfection!
Starter with aubergine caviar should have been served with more chill and both wines were served not cold enough. The red was well over the 70’s.
Noise level at bit too high (restaurant was packed)
Food was outstanding ! It was an extremely hot day and the a/c in the space had a hard time cooling down the restaurant.
Consistently well-executed creative menu. Service is friendly and warm.
Absolutely phenomenal, from the food to the service to the ambiance. Go for the experience, and you'll leave there incredibly satisfied
Food was great. We were seated at the last open table for our reservation which was directly beneath a dripping air conditioning conduit. Made it very hard for us to enjoy our time getting intermittently rained on.
One of the best meals I’ve had in Connecticut and I’ve lived here 35 years.
Fabulous birthday dinner for our daughter. Food was creative and delicious. The 3 course menu was timed perfectly and so was the service. Great night out.
Fabulous meal and service. Ordered off the three course menu. Had a nice bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.Had the coconut and beet cold soup(outstanding), eggplant and goat cheese, cartelized scallops, striped bass, duck and lamb loin. All outstanding. Split a tera cotta desert. The only mild complaint I would have is that$8for a large which I thought was ridiculous. One of the best meals we have had in a while and we consider ourselves foodies.
We had a very nice meal with friends. The food was excellent and artfully served. The fried chicken was tasty but wings are hard to eat and cheap for the asking price. The wait staff was excellent and there was a strong team effort shown as they were down a chef. It is very noisy.
We had a spectacular dining experience once again. The menu was incredible, very difficult to narrow down amongst a stellar lineup, but our server offered some recommendations of her favorites, and they matched what we considering. Summer menu is s nothing short of amazing, food was delicious (zucchini and eggplant starters, bass and crab cake seconds, 2 duo of beefs plus a lamb and the panna cotta and lychee desserts). Service was professional and offered great advice, overall excellent. We’re trying to figure out when we can both get back there for another taste of the current menu!
Great dining experience. The staff was friendly, engaging and the food was amazing.
Creative and perfectly executed menu. Staff is extremely knowledgeable and amiable. Wonderful space.
We celebrated my 35th birthday at Present Company and it was spectacular! We sat at the counter, which was so much fun. The chefs were friendly and it was neat to watch them make all the dishes. They were debuting the summer menu and we liked everything we ordered! The beef dish and the lamb dish were highlights for our meal but everything was delicious. The service was great and we enjoyed the atmosphere. I would definitely recommend Present Company and plan to return anytime we are in town!
Best spot I have been to in the Hartford area. It could compete against anything in New York. A real win. Amazing food, terrific service.
My only knock, and it is truly minor, is that the music could have been just a notch lower.
I went two nights in a row, the first was so good. And I can't wait to go back.
Present Company continues to deliver outstanding cuisine and top of the line service. It is a warm, personable and inviting ambiance that always feels welcoming and relaxed. The menu is always outstanding and consistently offers unique seasonal choices. It is our favorite restaurant!
The food was spectacular! Love the menu (and love that it changes throughout the year). Love that Chef Jeff pays homage to his mom with a few of her specialities on the menu. What a cool idea (and delicious too!) And the plating is gorgeous. So much fun to watch the magic in the kitchen happen. What a wonderful and fun evening as always. Thank you Chef Jeff, Tom, Ethan, Sadie, Savannah and the rest of the team. You all rock!!
Have been to Present Company several times now, and it is probably my favorite restaurant. It was the first night revealing their summer menu, so they had a special 4 course meal with wine pairings for $65. They had two options for each course, so my girlfriend and I got both options in each course and shared, and we were not disappointed as the food was fantastic (as it always is). I would absolutely refer to a friend, have brought several friends there when they have come to visit, and I will definitely go back to eat there in the future.
I love this restaurant and the chef. Very inventive menu. Just wish I lived closer but it is worth the trip
Wonderful time and experience!
Excellent food and service. Very friendly staff. We enjoyed sitting at the open kitchen bar and watching the chefs create visually stunning dishes with flavors to match. Very unique and creative dishes. Everything was delicious and cooked perfectly!
The food was phenomenal. delicious and imaginatively prepared. i particularly liked the ingenuity of the French onion tart and the mousse of the strawberry dessert. Classic fare interpreted and updated to perfection. A 'moveable feast,' by any standards.
We always love Present Company. We tried the new Vietnamese inspired tasting menu. It was so fresh, creative and inspired.
Fantastic. Outstanding, imaginative cuisine. A unique culinary experience. Talented Chef Jeffrey Lizotte and his co-owner Tom Gale team up after working at On20. Jeff brings extraordinary experience, including Eric Ripert’s Le Bernadin and David Bouley’s Danube in New York and two of France’s highly regarded restaurants, La Rupina in Bordeaux and the Michelin-starred La Bastide St. Antoine in Grasse. Their new creation is decidedly more informal and playful. Especially enjoyed the open kitchen and the old mill atmosphere. Top notch service, too.
Spectacular food, service and wine. So incredibly lucky to have this wonderful place so close to home. Bravo!!
Always a wonderful culinary experience! We love sitting at the counter and watching the chefs do their job.
Fabulous atmosphere, food and service! Highly recommended!!
Another amazing dining experience with Chef Jeff. The food was an exquisite variety of incredible tastes . We enjoyed the ambiance , the interactions with staff and the other patrons .
Lobster roll special was delicious. Prize fix vegetarian dishes were excellent. Service very good as always & love the intimate setting.
50 characters is too many: I simply love Present Company
Another outstanding meal! The food, ambience and service is spot-on.
Food was awesome just small portions but for the price it was good. And they only serve wine and beer but not martinis
Father’s Day- wonderful brunch. Great food and great service.
The first time I had the opportunity to eat at present company, the experience was exquisite. I went with friends and from the food to the staff was incredible. It was so good, I had to go again. They were above and beyond with my kid as well. Both times the wait staff was always helpful and knowledgeable about their menu. Their menus often change so you could have new experiences everytime you go. I will be going again! I look forward to seeing the staff and eating/trying the new concoctions they create. Thank you again for the wonderful evenings you guys have provided.
We love Present Company and often go for dinner when we land at Bradley as a little treat upon returning from vacation. This time we went for their occasional Burger Night, and it was amazing. A burger, salad, dessert, and a glass of wine/beer for $25. Best value in town and the best burger in town. We love this restaurant always, but Burger Night is a fun treat, too.
Our dinners were delicious. The wine was fantastic. Our service was friendly, helpful, warm and welcoming.
We always enjoy Present Company. There’s nothing like sitting at the Chefs counter. Watching the meals getting prepared and socializing with everyone is awesome! Tom and Jeffrey are always accommodating. Can’t wait to go back. 😃
Best food I’ve had yet in ct. it’s pricey but so worth it. Go there. You won’t regret it
Ive been 4 times and have always enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Love the tasting menu - especially if two people share their choices. You really get to experience so many flavors. Owners and waitstaff were incredibly attentive and engaging. Wine list is short and comprehensive - tasteful and smart! We gave options to our waitress and she chose a great bottle for what we ordered.
This visit was my boyfriend's and my anniversary celebration dinner. We always have an amazing experience from the service to the food and it's been one of our (and only) repeat places that we go to as often as possible.
Food and service were excellent. The seabass and carrot cake were my favorites.
