It was ladies' night for a delicious supper. We were transported right to Brittany. The food was perfect, service was impeccable and ambiance unmatched. Don't hesitate to visit Tersiguel's. You will remember your visit for a long time.

I love this place. Everything's perfect. The food's perfect. Charlie is the perfect person to guide you through dinner, and he can recommend a great wine. He's always aware, yet never hovers. The atmosphere's perfect too; formal, but not stuffy. We've been coming here since Fernand had his first place down the street in the 70s, followed him to the... More

Ate here while staying at a local B&B. We hadn't been to Tersiguel's in over 15 years and our positive memories were happily reinforced. The food is French in style but creative and varied. The wine list is full of good choices. The waitstaff are attentive without fawning. The food quality was first rate and the made in house bread... More

Our visit to Tersiguels was my first and my friends' continuing. We enjoyed every morsel, from the interesting appetizers to the elegant French desserts. I promise, it will be the highlight of your month & year &.....!

With a seat by the window we could see the passers-by in Old Ellicott City as we enjoyed app Atlantic yellow fin tuna; very good. A main course of the Pan seared day-boat scallops was excellent as were the wines by the glass. As always, excellent service and a good atmosphere

Tersiguel's is lovely and quaint, small and intimate. The service is impeccable, and the food is well worth the expense. It is the perfect place for a romantic dinner for two - I'm sure it's very, very popular for Valentine's Day!

Tersiquel's had been one of our most beloved restaurants for decades, but we moved far away over 4 years ago, so it was with a great deal of anticipation that I had the opportunity to celebrate the successful defense of a young friend's Ph.D. dissertation, just the 2 of us, on a lovely spring Wednesday evening at Tersiquel's.. The long-time... More

Went to Tersiguel's as a treat for Easter dinner. Tried their special seafood appetizer sampler, plus a favorite of ours, escargots ... great! We had the Poulet (chicken) and Viande du Marche, (featured meat for the day, beef! ... both delciious. And, to try something different, closed with the "goat cheesecake". The service was great ... friendly but also unobtrusive.... More

I just had a lovely Easter brunch at Tersiguel's. The food was wonderfully prepared and fresh as always. Fernand was at the door greeting everyone. I did not have wine at this meal, but I have always found the wine list is very good. This is a great "special night out" restaurant. You really should go to this restaurant despite... More
