    We did the $35 5 course tasting menu. Lots of variety - salad , cauliflower dish, pasta, chicken, big, sticky toffee dessert. Very generous portions Food was WAY oversalted to 4 people's taste buds. They corrected. Sometimes took 35-40 min between courses. Would have been a great value, had we not had drinks which are $20+ each. Also bread is $8. Trendy restaurant, pretty, SUPER LOUD. One of the loudest I have been to. Could not hear staff so good we ordered Prix-fixe. Overall good, not sure I personally would return b/c of noise level. I would sit outside if I did go back, quieter.

    Dinner celebration for friend. Loved the value menu options (F the recession and the sunset hour). Since we had outdoor seating, there was a bit of road noise, especially when the motorcycles go by but it was nice. Would have liked the outdoor seating on the other side with the view and water feature more but totally understand when staffing is an issue. We had the La Grand Dame and felt pretty full feasting on the variety of cured meats and cheeses along with the fire roasted bread as well as our cocktail drinks. We agreed that our favorite was the Gold Rush, simple but delicious! Though we were feeling full, the four of us decided we had room for the 14 oz Aged Prime NY Strip. It was well cooked and tender, however, we really got the dish for its duck fat fries. Service was great, everyone was friendly but gave us just enough space to enjoy dinner. Only thing I'd say we missed was that no one asked if we were celebrating anything, but a good dinner none the less.

    A good meal and good service The let down were the glasses. Martinis should be served in a martini glass. Not sure what glass our martinis came it - more like an aperitif glass of sorts. Also the glass of white wine came in an unusually sized glass This made it appear we were being stinted on the beverages which nobody appreciates John Martens Cell: (310) 508-8355

    We started with the saucisses de franche-comte, duck and fig terrine and epoisses - all were delicious. For main courses I had the spinach cavatelli, which was rich and sumptious, and my husband had the beef tartar which he found a little salty. The bread with Normandy butter was also terrific.

    Had a Super great time on a double date with some friends! The staff was really knowledgeable and friendly, the food was delicious, the vibe was great but it was a little bit too loud inside and made us have to shout across the table but other than that everything was amazing! Would absolutely go back.

    Tesse never disappoints! The food and service are always exceptional -- and they have the best pork chop in LA! The space does get loud when the dinner crowd arrives in earnest, and it is pricey, but it's always worth it to have dinner or brunch there.

    Très bonne expérience culinaire au Tesse, des produits simples mais très bon. Par contre,prévoyez que toutes les portions sont à partager et que si vous voulez séparer fruits de mer et grillades il faut le préciser car sinon service a l’américaine où les plats sont amenés aléatoirement en fonction de ce qui est prêt en premier.

    Recently visited Tesse to enjoy their prefix menu it’s $35 a person but they have it set up to feed 2 people so since each serving is for two people, it should be advertised as a $70 prefix for 2. If you’re a party of 3 you’ll be charged as a party of 4 which wasn’t explained to us. So, make sure to dine here with an even number of people otherwise you will pay for 4 people instead of 3. Originally we wanted to sit outside but the street traffic is too loud so we asked to sit inside which was way better. Indoor seating is comfortable ambiance is great, food service is great, overall delicious and recommended.

    Recession menu is a great deal and the bone luge is fun! It's basically a shot of Madera from the bone marrow bone. The cocktails are pricy but AMAZING. Must be the tastiest cocktails I've had in a while.

    i am a regular visitor at the restaurant and have had many good experiences. This one was a bit disappointing. We were seated outside by my choice but once seated were basically forgotten. After being seated for 15 minutes with no server i flagged down a staff member to send over our server. The server finally arrived and we ordered drinks...another 15 minutes went by and we hadn't received drinks or seen our waiter again so i entered the restaurant to flag him down. finally got our drinks, ordered our dinner, which again required a very lengthy wait to be served. i would definitely go back and have to assume this experience was a rare one but it wasn't the best night i have had at the restaurant.

    We took advantage of the F…the Recession special the restaurant was advertising. $35 for a 5 course meal. Food and service were amazing, with my favorite being the cauliflower. Took a group of friends, who enjoyed the wonderful cocktails and raved at the tremendous service. Have been here before and will definitely make my way back.

Cheese plate, while delicious, was a tad pricey, as were the drinks. But overall, a great experience. I will be back again.
