Tessara's has a few house specialties, like their Tournedos of beef in an excellent sauce, which will keep you coming back.They are the most consistently good restaurant around. we took advantage of the happy hour first for a cocktail and appetizer before heading to the dining area for dinner. Friendly staff!

With our group, we used to have monthly networking lunches there, and while I can attest to the friendliness of the staff, the food is OK but not enough to take my family there for dinner.

Edges on the pricey side but a huge menu and everything always comes out perfect. Wait staff excellent. Interior area getting dated and would be nice to see the booths go.

We go there quite frequently & you're always greeted by the owners: Mustafa or Adnon. Servers always on top of everything. Food can be pricey bUT worth it. Nice private room for 100 people.

I have visited Tessara many times since it opened including the previous establishment prior. The owners work very hard to provide a good atmosphere, and a good meal for the money which includes a good portion as well. Because of the close proximity of the bar and special events room the place can be somewhat noisy at times. Of the... More

Have been to tessara's about 6 times now and each time we are very satisfied with the experience. Went in January for a family Birthday party with about 10 people. service was great as usual. We had a variety of items including appetizers and deserts. Everything was fresh, tasty, and very generous portions. Very reasonable prices.

Tessara's is our neighborhood go to. Very relaxed local restaurant with great service and great food. I've never had a dish that I didn't like. Portions are big, prices are very reasonable and the servers are very friendly. After a long week at work, Tessara's is where I want to go for a quiet, delicious mean.
