Lovely Brunch with friends

The food was exquisite. The service was just right -- always attentive but not obtrusive. The brunch menu has something for everyone, and our dishes (monkfish casserole, French toast, crepes) were delicious and beautifully presented. Can't ask for more!!

A charming setting in an old home allows intimacy, calm and blessed quiet seldom found in new restaurants. A touch of old style French cuisine, based in standard preparations that can be nicely executed. My husband loved his beef and our guest loved his lamb - both done properly. Don't seek out creative interpretations here. Enjoy the feeling of a... More

We've been dining at Tersiguel's since it's inception as "Chez Fernand" in Ellicott City in the 1980's. Fernand moved the restaurant to Baltimore after a fire in the1990's, but has since relocated back to an even more spectacular location in downtown Ellicott City. Terisguel's offers fresh, seasonal ingredients, authentic French cuisine and cooking techniques, and an expansive wine menu to... More

Go in hungry. Don't look at the menu. Let the waiter bring you what he wants. Don't forget your wallet. Bam. Best meal ever.

My girlfriend moved to Ellicott City last year, and this was one of our first places to try. We've never gone back. We went for brunch as dinner is in a price range that is outrageous for what they offer. I ordered a frisée salad that came with a confit duck leg. A confit duck leg is supposed to be... More

The WORST lunch ever!!!! Ordered the quiche and apparently they didn't have any. Instead I was served a crock of some mystery liquid with a cheese crust topped with puff pastry. My granddaughter's crepe was kept warm while waiting for my concoction to heat . It was so overdone that it was inedible. My daughter's salad was wilted and the... More

Full disclosure: I didn't actually dine here. My parents' 65th wedding anniversary was coming up, so I contacted Tersiguel's to see if they would help make the anniversary special. They certainly did! Dominic, the Maitre d', responded promptly to my first email. I asked him to have Chef create a special 6-course menu just for my parents. I gave him... More

First let me talk about the exterior and the interior... The outside is a beautiful house in downtown Ellicott City. The interior is decorated finely and looks like a vintage home! For the food, I got a mixed salad, charcuterie plate, beef bourguignon, and chocolate mousse. Everything was perfectly delicious. Prices were ok. The portions were large and every dish... More

I ate here for my girlfriend's birthday with her family. The head waiter was a friend of the family so we let him pick the dishes and we just at them as they came. We shared a cheese and meat plate to start and for the main dish I had soft shell crabs served in philo dough. We also got... More
