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.

My Mom and I went here and we had missed the lunch specials by 5 minutes. They let us have the specials! The bread that they bring you is fresh and very good. The whole atmosphere is very nice (except for the loud idiot at the table next to ours; he and I had a nice staredown)

So I went here in a group of 4 from work. We walked in and was told the dining area was closed as it was being used by the rotary club. The only open area was the bar. The bar area is very small, and 2 of us had to sit at the bar and 2 of us sat along... More

Consistent food, service, and ambiance. The staff are always welcoming and never pretentious. Owners are almost always on-site and are friendly. Their bread is reason enough alone to come here, as well as their soups. Food is well-prepared and quite tasty, especially the summertime specials. A bit removed from downtown Madison, but worth the extra five minute drive.
