Chef Jeff and team are amazing. The food was fantastic and the chocolate parfiterols, hands down the best dessert ever. It’s our favorite place to go! Thank you for a wonderful meal!

Sat at the chef’s table to celebrate our anniversary. The food, from the appetizers of butter poached shrimp and smoked trout, to the entrees of wild boar with potato gnocchi (it was an app that my wife had as an entree) and the pan fried flounder, was the best we had in the area, and one of the best meals we have had period (the founder might have been the best fish dish I have ever had). The service was fantastic, and we loved the decor. Even at the chef’s table, it was easy to have a conversation with my wife. We will definitely be back.

Delightful! If in Hartford area, coming out to Present Company for a meal is a must. Sitting at Chefs counter to watch the action is fun and adds an additional layer of entertainment. Food is creative but not overdone. The service from the time you enter the door is cordial and on point. Cauliflower app was unique and delicious. Both food and wine menu is small and changes often.

Present Company was recommended to me and a friend by his father, and he was right when he told us that it was one of the best restaurants that he'd been to in CT! We went on a Tuesday night when they have their prix fixe menu and it was an amazing deal for the food that we got. Also at his recommendation, we sat where we could see the chefs cook and it was awe inspiring to watch these guys crank out some beautiful and tasty food. It didn't disappoint in any way, and we already set up another reservation to try out the tasting menu.

If you haven't had the pleasure of sampling Present Company, I recommend that you run, don't walk to the front door. Very creative menu items built on fresh local ingredients. An experienced chef who never ceases to surprise and a talented wait staff which provides a cozy, neighborhood feel against a fine dining landscape. Marry all that up with a fine wine or some Boom Sauce, and you got yourself a very nice meal.

This was our first visit and though we live over an hour's drive away, we will definitely be back and will also be bringing Litchfield and Fairfield County friends from our area. Wonderfully unique menu (our foursome had all different entrees and we were all thrilled). We shared two desserts which were also delightful. The service and attentiveness of the entire staff was palpable.
We highly recommend this gem.

We enjoy Present Company but hadn’t been back since they froze us out in December. We had to eat with our winter coats on. No apologies or consideration from management at that time. So it’s been off our list for a while. So I guess we’ll be fair weather diners.

I have been away for six months due to travel, so this was my first time here since last summer. I have been a fan of the food, staff, and ambiance since PCo opened. Tonight I was floored by dinner, as were my wife and mother in law (her bday dinner). Everything was delicious, complex, and presented perfectly. I didn’t think there was room for improvement, but tonight dinner was excellent. A++!!

We love making the trip to Present Company. It's also become our treat for when we're returning from a trip since it's easily on our way home from Bradley. Wonderful seasonal menu, great service, and if you can get a seat at the chef's counter, you get a great view of Jeffrey and his team creating the dishes.

As always, it was a true pleasure dining at Present Company. The cuisine is top notch. Incredibly creative and unique offerings that push you to try something new- knowing you wont be disappointed. When served, you must take a moment to appreciate the great care that is put in to how the food is prepared and plated. Truly a work of art even before you take your first delicious bite. The ambiance is warm and inviting, casual yet chic, and very intimate. A wonderful place for a date or dinner with a close friend.

My husband and I had the tasting menu with the wine pairings . Service was slow and uneven. The pace of the dinner was more hurry up and wait. We were always told to be careful and that the dishes were hot. However in 2 of my courses the food was barely room temp. The wine pairings were thoughtful and wonderful. I would return but would not recommend the tasting menu.

We visited on a Tuesday night and it was relativeky quite which we liked. The service was great and Tim, the owner, was abke ti talk to us several times throughout the night. He was very friendly and we enjoyed his attention. The food was very good and quite different from your standard resturant and the pre fix price was well worth it. We will be back.

Menu was limited but the choices were excellent. Only dish we did not love was a shrimp appetizer that was bland. Lamb and beef dishes were perfect and beautifully presented. Service was great and co-owner made the rounds to tables. Casual atmosphere - lots of activity but noise level was under control. Cocktails and after dinner drinks would be a nice addition - wine and beer are the only liquor options.

This is an undiscovered Gem. I travel all over North America and this is one of my favorites. Innovative cuisine, always a culinary surprise. If you are a meat and potatoes or don’t like to venture out and try new things, don’t come here, but, if you are open to new experiences, this is the place. Only negative is a short wine list. I try to go here every time I am in the area.
