Food was unique and well prepared. A nice change from the traditional restaurants in Farmington Valley.
Great place for special occasions and date night. Hopefully it will be around for years to come.

Once again, Chef and his staff provided a one of a kind experience. The Spring menu is full of great choices and the ambiance is driven by loyal regulars who never allow you to feel like you are dining alone. The staff make sure your every need is met and takes great care to be sensitive to allergies and sensitivities. If you haven't been, you should. if you have been, get back as soon as you can. this place is always changing and evolving.

This restaurant only offers a pre fix menu for dinner. I was not aware of that when booking. The dinner took 2 hours to be served all 3 courses. The food was good but in my opinion it is very expensive and they only serve beer and wine

Exceeds expectations every time, and always something new and exceptional. For example, the ramp pasta was deeply flavorful and prepared from ramps picked in the woods nearby.

The food would likely have been very good, but it was coated in lemon sauce which over-powered any other flavor (two different dishes, both tasted like lemon). Good service, but not worth the money for the small portions of mediocre food

In turns out the last time we had been to this location it was another restaurant called the Mill at 2T. It also turns out we dined that night with the same couple who joined us this night.

The food at Present Company is what this restaurant is about. While the surroundings are cozy, it's the kitchen that draws diners. I enjoyed duck breast, which was superbly prepared and which I devoured every morsel. Another of our party was delighted with the vegetarian entree, Roasted Root Vegetable Wellington. The waitress said that it's so good many non-vegetarians order it.

While the kitchen excels, the waitstaff at times seemed a bit stressed. Two of us were served our drinks, while the other two had to wait an awkward five minutes or so for theirs. At last a toast was made. But then, a similar experience with our salads: only three were served while the fourth guest had to remind our waitress that one was missing.

The setting is warm and friendly, but the acoustics are challenging. It was difficult communicating across the table, not to mention communicating with our waitress.

It was too noisy for the three of us - two of us in our late sixties.

We loved the food, but being required to buy three courses each seems a little much to us.

Present Company is an absolute gem. Great food, and I love the constantly changing menu. Their vegetable dishes are always the strongest, so don't overlook them. Don't get me wrong, the meat and seafood dishes are good, too, but the vegetable dishes are absolutely amazing!

I had visited this restaurant years ago when it was Mill at 2T and it was the wonderful experience then that brought me back. This time, under new ownership, was just as good. The service, the care and attention shown by the owner was wonderful and welcoming. Oh and of course the food. The only reason I didn't give the food a 5 star rating was that the third dish (short rib shepard's pie) in the prix fixe meal was less spectacular and creative compared to the first two. If it had been presented perhaps second, there would have been more of a natural build up to the finale. Splitting hairs... but overall a great dining experience and I'll be heading back!

We have been to Present Company several times. It is our 95 year old father’s favorite place in town.
The staff is amazing, the food is fabulous and the ambiance is delightful. Our family moved to Simsbury in 1959 and as the kids come back to visit, it is both amazing and wonderful that Tariffville has a place like this ; ). Keep up the good work and we will be back.

Always enjoy the appetizer but would have preferred it served on a plate, not in a bowl. Also couldn't figure out the small dish of popcorn or the tiny slices (3) of bread for 2 people. Very skimpy. Looking forward to a bar coming.

The service was incredible and the staff was very attentive. The food was creative, delicious and beautifully presented. The restaurant it self is a small cozy and intimate setting with an open kitchen that one might not expect by looking at the menu but wonderfully suits the overall feel of entire experience. It's like having an amazing meal around friends, very comfortable and inviting.

A friend from Houston was consulting in area and wanted to meet up for dinner. My girlfriend and I have been to Present Company several times and every time its been great, so we brought him there. I was hoping he'd enjoy the choice, and was happy to see him practically lick the plate. Present Company is by far my favorite restaurant in the area, and might be my favorite period.

We chose the five course tasting menu with the wine pairing. None of the dishes were the ones I was eyeing on the menu and I’m so glad I wasn’t choosing: each course was delicious and the salmon was truly exceptional. I’m still dreaming about the Turtle dessert with Guinness ice cream. As always, the service was friendly, unpretentious, helpful, and attentive. Fantastic dinner all around.

This cozy quaint place is perfect for you to just get away for the night and enjoy a fabulous meal. The wait staff is very pleasant and the chef will physical serve some dishes while engaging with his patrons. The food is phenomenal and with so many choice worthy meals it is hard to select which ones you want to try each time. Great place for date night or with a few friends. Definitely put this place on your restaurant bucket list!
