Present Company has a small and cozy dining room divided from the "bar" area where the "bar" is actually a chef's table with front row seating for their open kitchen. We sat at a high top in this area and were able to enjoy the dinner and a show vibe with a great view of everything happening in the kitchen.
We visited on a Monday evening for a special event* with a 7pm reservation and the restaurant was full the entire time we were there. . Even though it seemed busy, service was stellar and we enjoyed visits to our table from both, Tom Gale and Chef Jeffrey Lizotte.
If you enjoy fine dining, I highly recommend putting Present Company on the top of your list to visit on your next night out. Take an Uber and add the wine pairing to all your courses!
PS- We weren't actually wearing sweatpants.
*Present Company is typically closed on Mondays and open Tue-Sat from 5pm-10pm.
