Nice spot for lunch.

I've had lunch here a couple of times and it's really nice. Cozy atmosphere and a friendly staff. The food is really good and prices are fair. Nice location along the East River...plenty of parking. Easy to get to as it's on the Post Rd.

Love this place. Always a happy crowd when you eat at the bar and share the evening. A hometown sort of place with friendly staff and consistently good food. A must-stop when in Madison CT. Tell Brian I sent you!!!

I've been dining at Friends and Company for over twenty years. I love their house made breads and salads. The new menu is not as extensive as previous menus. I love their warm goat cheese salad but this is only offered as an occasional special. The chef is not particularly accommodating to special requests, in fact, our server has come... More

Friendly, relaxed atmosphere, prompt attentive service, fresh, creative food. The homemade bread and soups are always delicious. Entrees are well prepared, nicely presented. Love the fireplace in winter.

Nice location on the salt marshes, close to interesting outdoor sites in Madison and Guilford. Food was fine. Pleasant wait staff, but did not get our order right, took forever to tell us they were out of another item we had ordered. havent been back in probably 10 years and will probably be another 10.

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

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 differently). The kids... 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
