65th Wedding Anniversary

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... read 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

This is undoubtedly one of the best French restaurants that I have eaten at; the food was sublime, not artsy or Americanized, but really a terrific bistro style. The services is spot on, with attention to so many details; you aren't given the bum's rush to choke down your food and leave. The location is terrific - historic Ellicott City;... More

I have been to Tersiguel's with a group. The food was excellent, but a bit pricey. Knowing that you get what you pay for, I would rate it a 4 out of 5. The downtown old Ellicott City where it is located is actually a beautiful place to walk in the evenings.

Went with our 1 1/2 yr. old son. Staff was very professional, affable and the restaurant is situated in downtown Ellicott City. I would say it's one of the best restaurants there. The food was very good. The historic house the restaurant is in has tons of personality, so completely off the 'chain' feel. Highly recommend if you're in the... More

This is a lovely place in historic Ellicott City. Began under chef extraordinaire Tersiguel, now tradition being maintained by his son. Entertained my sister visiting from Florida here for dinner, it was a treat for all of us. Very interesting menu, all meals prepared perfectly and presented attractively. Staff was professional throughout - friendly, informative, there when you needed them,... More

My wife and I went to the restaurant for the first time and had an awesome experience. The waiter helped us with some food selections, the food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere was very nice.

I took a friend from Washington, D.C. and her sister, visiting from London, to Tersiguel's in March, 2015. Made a reservation, got a great table. The food is tops and the service, ditto.
