Always a Good Meal

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.

My wife and I met her cousin and aunt at Tessara's for a special occasion dinner on October 7, 2014. We were disappointed. Two of us ordered soup as the appetizer. My wife had the pasta fagioli which was not thick enough and just OK. I had the chicken soup. The pasta in the soup was very mushy - overall... More

Even a small diner is better than this horrible experience . Party of four order was fried calamari shatobrian for two and seafood mixed plate. Served with fruits !! What the heck. Slays of unpeeled orange green apple and cantaloupe on the same plate of grilled filemignon and bullion melted in cold water. No salt pepper or anything to taste... More
