I have been to Tesse a few times. I love the food - a take on classic yet modern french cuisine that has flavors and textures that I've thought I could only have in Europe. The bread is something that can not be missed, and...More

In order for a restaurant to get five stars, it must be very unique and I believe that is what Tesse is. Tesse is a neighborhood gem. It is an exceptional restaurant with an exceptional menu and food and a great wine selection. It has...More

Super pleasantly surprised! I wasn’t expecting much because it looked like those bougie restaurants on Sunset that don’t need to try so hard because they’re on prime real estate. The complete opposite actually. I was greeted warmly by the hostess, sat at the bar for...More

It was my wife’s birthday, so the pastry chef sent out an assortment of desserts. They were absolutely fantastic. the Soufflé is phenomenal. The unwrapped Snickers was beyond good. The food is good here, but go for the desserts as well.

Some of the food was really good and portions were a good size. Service is quite good and it has a nice ambience with the smell of the open fire for cooking the meat.

While the dishes have too many ingredients and are too complicated, the chef is able to bring it off. Did the artichoke salad need anchovies? No, but it was still excellent. A fine crab salad overwhelmed by potato puree was the only poor dish. Sardines...More

Nice ambiance with great service. Only strange thing was that the tip was included yet at the end they suggested we could tip more. Drinks were top notch. Octopus was outstanding as was the bone marrow dish. Pasta was outstanding, but dessert was just ok....More
