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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Try it!

This was such a pleasant surprise! The tasting menu was excellent - the portions were bigger than expected, flawlessly prepared and delicious. The best thing about it was that my wife, who is a vegetarian, had just as many perfectly prepared choices as I did! It’s so nice to be able to eat out and have everyone feel like they are experiencing the same fine level of dining, without vegetarians being limited to only one or two choices. Yay!! Well done! We will be back!

The food was the best I have had in a long time. The prix fixe menu had some very interesting options and it was more food than I could eat but my group also split a dessert - carrot cake - and that was excellent. The butter and bread was so delicious I think the butter was whipped with Fines herbs. Definitely recommend this place for special occasions and just a great night out! Wine was good too! Loved it!!
