Reliable good food and service

We have had dinner at Friends & Co many times, it being a favorite of our grandchildren. Pleasant place, good martini for me, food the kids love. This time my wife and I had the salmon in Asian dressing after a caesar salad. Good salad, salmon cooked right for me and for my wife (we like it... read more

I was searching for the perfect restaurant to celebrate my husband and my 30th anniversary. I picked this one from others reviews on line and it was excellent! I had the penne Alfredo with mushrooms and tomatoes, and my husband had the steak. It was the best meal I had in a long time. The atmosphere was nice with dimmed... More

My husband and I dine out frequently, since we reside in Guilford CT and both commute to work in New York. We look for a quality restaurant in our area upon our return home. This has been an ongoing ritual for quite some time. Well after dining in many of the restaurants in this area we have found a treasure... More

I've been here with my Mom a lot in the past and have always enjoyed the service, food, and atmosphere. The last time we went which was on her birthday it had changed for the worse. The menu changed. I'm a vegetarian and had always gotten the Southwest pasta without chicken and it was great! No more. I had to... More

The food and staff were amazing! Quality food! Looking forward to coming back and enjoying their new outside deck! Coconut shrimp and the pineapple mango dipping sauce was a great combination! The Panko crusted cod was amazing and my sirloin steak was cooked to perfection!

I highly recommend giving Friends & Company a try! It is in a quiet location near the Connecticut Shoreline on the east side of Madison. The dining room is a relatively small but open space with closely spaced tables. A full wall containing windows for viewing from one area to the other separates the bar from the dining room. The...

Real estate agents always say location,location,location and it's true. But when I plan on eating out in my area and I have had a long day , Or when I need a go-to restaurant to entertain out of town friends this place is at the top of my list,especially in the fall and winter months. The fireplace is comforting and... More

Ate here twice last week, and had a wonderful time. Quiet, friendly, warm atmosphere, great food, good portions. One of the most pleasant restaurants I have ever eaten in.

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 veggies inside-sauce is just the right the right... 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
