A very unique menu with superb quality selection. Service that cannot be more personal. There is a dish/meal that will fit any palate.

First time and all the great reviews are right. Stellar service and food prepared with great attention to detail. Friendly relaxed staff added to make us comfortable in a formal atmosphere. We will be going back many times, just wish we had not waited so long for our first visit.

Everyone was delighted with the food, service and ambiance of the restaurant. The noise level was great, and it was very easy to converse with one anothert across... More

We have visited Tersiguel's for many years on special occasions. This year, for our anniversary evening. In my opinion, in our area when a restaurant gets popular, even if quality decreases, people still go. Tersiguel's quality has NEVER decreased. The service and food remain superb . Even when we reheated the "leftovers" the next evening, they were still good. Thank... More

Tersiguel's continues a long history (40 years now) of excellent food and service. We had oysters on the half shell and pate for starters, poisson du jour and porc chasseur for the entree, and creme brulee and fruit cup for dessert. All were very tasty, and the creme brulee was surprisingly light. Our waiter, Brian, was cordial and knowledgeable. Even... More

This restaurant is one of the special ones, the one you keep in your pocket for really special occasions or when you need to entertain and impress. It's located in a charming but unassuming townhouse in the historic district of Ellicott City, and these folks are serious about good, accessible country and traditional French cuisine, not to mention an excellent...

Tersiguel's is the best French restaurant in this area. It is a family owned and operated restaurant with large selections of French wine and nice food.

This is my wife's and my go to restaurant in Howard County. We go here to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and other special events. My favorite meal here was during a snowstorm. We were seated in the front area of the restaurant and enjoyed watching the snow fall as we enjoyed our meal. Our favorite main dish is Boeuf a la... More

We were here for our anniversary dinner years ago. It came highly recommended and it was fine, if a little cramped. It is in an old house that is quite charming, I guess. The maitre d' was very knowledgeable about wine and gave us complimentary drinks once he found out it was our anniversary. I found the food to be... More

The reason I rated a 4 is because some foods lacked flavor. I am french decent. I loved the decor of the place since I collect Quimper and it was very nice to see the framedfamily tree on wall. The filet steak was good but lacked flavor. The bread was excellent as well as the salad. The vegetable was just... More
