Always Great and Friendly

OK so it's not a young persons hang out. But that's ok for us. Looking for a quiet friendly relaxed place after a crazy week. The menu is never boring or old. Last night we just did 'small plates- appetizers' *Veggie fritters with Asian dipping sauce; crispy on outside, moist and flavorful... read more

Recently shared Christmas dinner with a dear friend at this restaurant. We remarked about how quiet it was so good for conversation - you don't have to yell to be heard! The food is also very, very good as is the service. My favorites are the bread and the house meatloaf which is awesome. They sell the bread separately so... More

We have visited this restaurant a number of times; most recently the last weekend to celebrate a birthday. Except Saturday, which was this visit, there is a lower price menu with several choices, and a bistro menu. The prices, however, on the main menu , are typical of good restaurants in the area; mid teens to upper 20's for dinner... More

This was our first visit and was chosen based on the recommendation of the innkeeper where we were staying. Menu prices were on the high end of moderate, but if you're there before 6:00 pm, there are early menu specials. These include the choice of soup or salad plus the entree for $14.95. My wife had a Caesar salad with... More

We have been here several times over the last year or two and it always feels so friendly. So many of the patrons appear to be regulars and are always greeted as such. We have never been disappointed in the food or the service. If you are from the area and haven't been to Friends & Company you are missing... More

We've been going here for years off and on, but had family visiting from Washington state. After a busy day sightseeing in New York, this was the obvious choice for dinner after we got off the train. The atmosphere is pleasant. The staff is friendly and attentive without being intrusive. And the food has only gotten better. We love the... More

On Friday, September 26, 2014, my husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Friends & Company. It was dark and later in the evening when we accidently stumbled upon this restaurant in Madison. When we arrived at the restaurant and explained that we needed to be seated right away, the two hostesses immediately went to the manager and communicated... More

I have dined at Friends & Co consistenly for several years. The food and service are always top notch. Several times I have dined there with large parties and each time they gave us separate checks without being asked. The food came out in a timely manner regardless of how crowded it is. The servers are real pros. When a... More

We enjoyed dinner on the deck in August. The bread is the best! The portions were generous and the service was friendly. Nice restaurant!

Though overlooking the parking lot, it is near the East River and not as on top of Rt. 1 as some shoreline options. Chocolate bread pudding was excellent.
