    The quality and presentation of the food was excellent. The service and attention was at a lovely and relaxed pace, perfect for this high quality eating experience. Our only negative was that someone was smoking at the outside bar and the smoke was an unpleasant surprise. Sadly it seems that this is permitted though our waitress did offer to re-seat us, which we declined. The evening was not spoiled by this but it was definitely a minor unpleasantness. We would/will return on our next visit to Johnson City.

    Great service (Kenn), superb first plate (crab cakes and beef medallions), and wonderful dinner (flounder)! Dark chocolate lava cake was excellent. I'm never disappointed when I come here to dine! You won't regret coming here to celebrate or just relax with a special someone for a wonderful dining experience!

    Looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary while on vacation in the Johnson City area. Wife had a redfish special that she enjoyed very much while our server Zach did a good job of confirming that I would enjoy the wild boar tenderloin. Which I did very much. Nice wine list across the price ranges with good by the glass selections. This is a good one!

    As a business traveler, I am always on the lookout for unique, local eateries. Gourmet & Co met my quest perfectly. We dined on a stormy Tuesday evening and only the hearty and hungry seemed to have ventured out as the dining room where we were seated was small and was not full. A large group arrived but were quickly forgotten by other diners as the sounds from their table were an issue. Wine, steak, dessert all great.

    We said we'd be back and we returned. The dining experience and food was a superb as the first time! Stuffed mushrooms were to die for. The goat cheese salad was a repeat favorite for my wife and I had the soup de jour (creamed asparagus with bacon). Again, both were outstanding! For dinner my wife enjoyed the salmon and I had one of the specials, pecan encrusted grouper. WOW - MOUTHWATERING. We finished by sharing a Banana Fosters and enjoyed the French pressed coffee - what a special meal. Kenn was our waitor and did another fantastic job meeting our every need and wish. If you have a special occassion and need to score a perfect score with a splendid meal and top notch experience in Johnson City, THIS is the place to go!

    My wife and I have had the ability to enjoy wonderful seafood and fish in a variety of places, including Key West, FL, where it often doesn't get any better. However, I must say, this evening, both our meals were prepared to perfection and easily matched and exceeded some of our most memorable dinners. My wife had one of their menu items, the trout and I had their special, sushi grade ahi-tuna. PHENOMENAL! Mouthwatering, and so tasty! The appetizer (medallions and crab cakes) was outstanding and even our salads (spinach with cashews and the goat cheese) were superb. Martinis were amazing...just can't say enough about this place and the service we received from Ken, our waiter. Thank you Gourmet and Company - we'll certainly be back!

    Visiting from out-of-town, this restaurant was recommended to us. What a gem. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We asked what heirloom spinach was, an ingredient being used, and not only were we informed but given a sample! Not just any place will go that far to inform. Scallops were done perfectly. The trout we highly recommend. Yes, it is a bit pricey but well worth it.

    My wife and I have eaten at some higher end restaurants in big cities and all over with talented chefs - Gourmet and Company could compete with any of them. It was actually better in the sense that you could show up in business casual or suit and tie and feel comfortable either way. The asparagus bisque was possibly the most unbelievable soup I've ever tasted. We are huge duck fans and my wife's duck dish was nearly perfect: the crust, the level it was cooked, and the sauce - all perfect. I saw lamb bolognaise as the special and couldn't resist. I wasn't disappointed either because this is the most unique way I've eaten lamb - creative and full of flavor & textures. I could go on and on, but you need to just go try it!

    I had the pleasure of eating here while visiting my sister. I am from a city with a huge food scene and I was a bit scared of what the Tri-Cities had to offer. This was an excellent restaurant that I hope to eat at on my next visit. Every dish we had was well prepared and tasty. The wine list was very good and included by the glass choices as well. Our server was really sweet and very knowledgable about everything on the menu. This restaurant would be competitive in any city.

    We visited from out of town with some friends. We got there a bit late on a weekend and they were very accommodating. We had nice cocktails to open, followed by wine (Bell Syrah) with cheese, salads, and mains. The wait staff was attentive and pleasant and we did not feel rushed despite the late hour (9:45 pm). We had a variety of mains, including fish, steak, scallops, and a burger. All the food was nicely prepared and presented. Dessert was a lovely pumpkin crème brulee and a dark chocolate cake. The venue is in a strip mall and may not be obvious, but it is pleasantly set up inside. We would recommend this for visitors to Johnson City.

    The food and service were wonderful as always, but we had the unfortunate coincidence of eating on the ETSU graduation day, so the place was really busy and noisier than normal and maybe stretched the limits of the staff. Consequently, our food was a little cold when it did reach the table (particularly the soup, which was just luke warm) and I'm sure that is a result of just trying to get food to lots of people and it not coming directly for kitchen to table, but still a little disappointing. the only other disappointment was the desert. The Pumpkin Crème Brule was average at best. I would definitely not recommend that. Otherwise everything was great!

    I took my husband to a surprise dinner for his birthday, and he was thrilled! I booked through open table, and we were seated immediately. I enjoyed a sweet potato and purple potato soup, and it was divine. He enjoyed a walnut and goat cheese salad that i almost wished I'd ordered. The wine was nice, and the server gave us the perfect amount of attention. And the bread pudding was devoured. I have and will continue to recommend this fine establishment while living in Johnson City.

    This is an outstanding restaurant. I have been several times over the past couple years and they never disappoint. This was the first time that I've went with a bigger group (party of 6) and our waiter was very attentive, helpful, and charming. The service and atmosphere are great, but I really go for the food. Everything was exceptional. I enjoy introducing new friends to this gem in the tri-cities.

    Discovered this place a couple of years ago. Simply put, I have never gotten ANYTHING from here that is anything less than outstanding. Every menu item I've tried has been exceptionally good. I've never had a bad experience whilst dining here. Menu is fairly limited and changes seasonally, but what they do, they do very well. Lots of flavor in every dish. Always great service! I could go on and on, but I digress. If you're tired of chain type places, give Gourmet and Company a visit. Very much on par or surpassing a Ruth's Chris level of restaurant. Expect to spend $100 plus for a dinner for two unless you go cheap. Very much worth it for a special occasion or if you're loaded, lol!

    What a wonderful little restaurant in an out of the way strip mall. If not for Open Table I would not have found this place and enjoyed such a fantastic meal. The staff was warm and friendly, the food was fresh and delicious. The Butternut Squash soup was a 'to die for' starter. Almond crusted salmon entree was superb. I'm just sorry that I was too full for desert. Also had a nice glass of Butternut Chardonnay to complement the meal. You must try this restaurant if in the Johnson City area

    Gourmet and Company has great, unique foods not found in other restaurants. The food tasted very good and had excellent presentation. The restaurant started very quiet when we got there with only a few other tables, and as the night went along and more tables arrived, it got a little louder. I would save this restaurant for a special occasion, as it is a little more exclusive. Overall, everything was very nice and we would highly recommend it!

    While the building exterior is nothing short of bland, the interior is suave and has some personality. The menu is not huge, but it doesn't need to be. The selection of meal possibilities is broad, and the extensive use of local ingredients helps the moderate to high pricing seem worth the expense. The dining can be somewhat casual or quite formal: your clothing and attitude set te tone. The restaurant has a smooth, sophisticated jazz-feel, and the experience is what you make it. As for the restaurant, it has good service, fantastic food, and a convenient location.

    We have been here for lunch many times and have been impresses with the service and setting. The dinner menu is vastly different from the rather simple lunch menu! I had duck confit to start and it was done perfectly, the skin was crisp and duck moist! Our favorite dinner item was shrimp, scallops and cheese grits. The steak was cooked perfectly as well. The service was impeccable and she was extremely knowledgeable about food in general. Impressive find! It is on the higher end of pricing for the area, but worth it!
