    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.

    Service staff very friendly, helpful and courteous. They made our visit extra special. Food was delicious! Pre-fix dinner menu a great value in terms of quality versus cost. Cheese plate, while delicious, was a tad pricey, as were the drinks. But overall, a great experience. I will be back again.

    While the food is good, the service is terrible. You immediately feel not dealing with proffessionals, not even trainee, probably un-experienced casual workers. This is ruining the experience. The plates arrive upside down, they broke stuff around you, pooring the wine and leaving you numerous drops on the table, bumping on you while passing around the tables poorly set up to minimise the flow inside the restaurant. Whle the food is acceptable, the service was the worse i have so far seen in the US for that category of restaurant, we won't be back. To avoid.

    We tried 3 times. Service and interior is awesome. But food is main, and it was bad. Carbonara was tender and aldente, but bacon was burned. Tartar was too vinegar bitter and for some reason spicy. I tried really better Tartar in other places. Steak and eggs is good, could recommend this position. Caramel desert not bad, but Caramel sauce have bitter taste also. NY steak was soft, but balsamic was burned and it was bitter taste again. Rice in squid risotto not bad, but again why it's spicy? And octopus is sad.... Bitter and burned... Strawberry desert... I asked remove balsamic after NY steak experience, but they didn't, and again good desert was spoiled with bitter taste from balsamic.

    Nice friendly service- challenge was a bit the food runners; we had 7 courses and er very course there was someone different. They forgot courses and brought one twice. The gave us a glass of champagne to apologize for all the confusion. It was okay however it feels they should organize this a little better. The food was just not very special, all was okay, but not something I would go back to for the food or would recommend to others. We were sitting outside so ambience was hard to tell. Inside looked nice.

    Food and beverages were outstanding. . . I had not planned on eating as much as I did and certainly was surprised to see how little I ended up boxing to take home. Very cool interior, bar/kitchen/table design, both "dim" and "well lit". . .great vibes, I felt welcome.

    We went during happy hour when prices are very reasonable. The Tess hamburger was delicious as were the onion rings. The daiquiri was great. The steak on the regular menu was mediocre but I guess this is not a steakhouse so not a place to order steak. The service was great and the ambience sitting outside was really nice. We will go again and just not order the steak.

    Vibrant and lively, very energetic place. Staff was above exceptional from the moment we walked in until we left - pleasant, knowledgeable, engaging. Food was okay - over complicated recipes that when worked - amazing - otherwise just too many competing flavors. Don’t be afraid of the onion rings - outstanding. Sommeiller was well versed in the wine list - paired our meal well in line with our palate. Table next to us did some bone marrow shots - looked fun - and think that must be a specialty of the place. We had the salmon skewers that were delicious.

    Second time at Tesse and it did not disappoint. Our server, David, was terrific and was prompt and friendly. Food was extraordinary. We shared plates including hamachi crudo, bread, onion rings, french fries, beef tartare, branzino, steak and veggies (cauliflower). Wood fired cooking brings an extra taste to the grilled foods that I crave. Wine service was also spot on. Surprised that restaurant was not packed on a thursday but it was just before Memorial Day. Nice atmosphere, great food.

    Dinner at Tesse was truly outstanding and exceeded our expectations. My wife and I enjoyed dinner here on a Saturday night. What a great destination for a fun, delicious and romantic dinner! The ambience was great, the drinks were really interesting and the food was phenomenal! We ordered the octopus, the cauliflower and the lamb and each dish was very creatively flavoured. My wife has a gluten allergy and there were tons of options. Great vibe too. Highly recommend.

    Visit #1: We were seated outside and the street was very noisy. I’d recommend trying inside for your first time. The Service was phenomenal, we had a very sweet, funny, and attentive waiter. Their food was top shelf quality, but it is a pretty penny for one night’s dinner out. Luckily, I went here to celebrate a few met goals with family. Tesse will definitely be my “celebration dinner” place moving forward! I was very happy with my selection.
