A gem

Everything was perfect from the amous bouche to dessert. We lingered, we talked ... no one rushed us. It was a completely lovely experience. Can't wait to go back

The food was good, but for this amount of money it could have been excellent. I think that it extremely overpriced.

TA needs a rating for 'good', so this is a 3.5; particularly for the price one might expect more actual sophistication, rather than ticking off boxes someone read about (or was taught) 20 years ago. We were a party of 8. Hits: service - our server was pleasant and engaging - popular with the ladies. Wait times were long, but... More

My first visit to this gem of a restaurant will not be my last. We had a delightful birthday celebration in the Brittany room, Bretagne to some, but warm and welcoming to all. The appetizers were plentiful and tasty and my filet mignon with porcini mushroom sauce was grilled to perfection. The setting made for a wonderful evening in itself,... More

Been dining at Tersiguels for two decades and just enjoyed dinner here again last night. As always the food is fabulous and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Whether business, family or out with friends we always have a fun time.

Had a great dinner with my husband last night. The Long Island oysters pared with tuna in champagne mignonette was fantastic but the calamar appetizer was even better! We then had a monkfish with shrimp risotto and a rack of lamb with potato gratin. Have you ever eaten something to the last bite because it is so delicious you're afraid... More

Fernand (the owner) and his staff at Tersiguels never fail to meet or exceed our dining expectations. They always have an interesting menu with a variety of tempting dishes. Orange crepes dessert done table side is wonderful; the aroma itself is tantalizing. An EC treasure.

Tersiguel's is far and away the best restaurant in Howard County, with its lovely old fashioned atmosphere and delicious, fresh, authentic food. We go for special occasions (it can get pricey), and they really do feel special, thanks to the great cuisine and service.

I had lunch here in late January with friends--one from DC and the other, her sister from London. We all agreed it was super. It's expensive, but worth it.
