We were not to sure of this place because of the mixed reviews. We were so glad we went. Casual atmosphere, great service. The food was delicious. Freshly made and piping hot. We highly recommend it. A bit pricey but worth it.

I love this place! The service is very good and the food is creative and delicious. Although it isn't inexpensive, I have not been disappointed during my last 3 visits.

I've been going to Friends & Company for years and it rarely disappoints. The service is familiar and friendly. The food is always well-prepared. The breads and salads are comfort foods. They've changed up their menu with many new items (as well as old favorites), and their nightly specials are always a treat! (Last night's Coq au Vin over mashed... More

Tried this for first time on a Saturday evening. Restaurant was half full when we arrived, yet hostess tried to seat us at table closest to the entrance. Prior to being seated she accommodated our request for a table further inside the dining room. The server was pleasant, however after serving our main dish, we did not see her again... More

Well, on a Monday night, mostly older people. The chicken piccata was just ok. Chicken was not pounded so a little tough. Sauce and vegetables were good. Inside of restaurant is very old looking, peeling wall paper and dirty cracked ceiling. A little expensive for the condition of the place and the food.

Turned my husband right off we don't smoke. All restaurants in CT are none smoking! I was in the restaurant business for over... More

Service was very good, attentive, friendly. Food is better than OK. Solid choice for a burger and fries. Seafood dishes solid, just not extraordinary in a market where extraordinary is not very far away. Single room capable of noise problems when busy.

Thank ScovilleSteve
