Good French food and really nice location. It is in an older place in downtown Ellicott City. We really enjoyed the meal and service. It is a little pricey, but worth it.

One of the best French Cuisine restaurants including some in Paris. Unfortunately it was impacted by recent devastating flood in Ellicott City. Pay attention for when it reopens! Sure to be better than ever.

Tersegals is gold. Over the past 20yrs we have celebrated occasions, had spur of the moment meals, and even incentivized our two growing boys to make all A's in school to earn a special dinner as their reward. The food is made with generations of culinary brilliance and the atmosphere is filled with love.

Our group of six just placed our orders when the storm hit. The sun room ceiling started to leak so they moved us to the second floor. As the flooding increased, they moved everyone to the second floor. (I don't believe the first floor was ever flooded, but the basement was full of water.) Nonetheless, the staff continued to serve... More

We ate at Tersiguel's one Saturday evening for a date night and ended up having one of the best meals of our lives! The menu is not overwhelming, and instead offers you just the right amount of choices to entice anyone's palate. Our waiter was fantastic and was so knowledgeable that we went with his suggestions for our entrees. He... More

We had a chance to visit Tersiguel's on Sunday and it was impressive as usual. From the service at the door, to the final drop in our glasses it was a great experience. For no reason in particular we probably haven't been there in 7 years; which is totally a mistake on our part. The freshness of the herbs and... More

Tersiguel's is in a class by itself! The food, the wine, the service are all the best. We have been eating there for 25+ years and each meal had been extraordinary! A wonderful experience each time!

My husband and I had lunch today at Tersiguel's and it was perfect. I had the Coquille St. Jacques (seared sea scallops accompanied by a carrot juice risotto and English pea coulis). My husband had the Sausage hash special and we both had heirloom tomato salad with the appetizer Escargots. The tomatoes came from their garden and we excellent. We... More

Celebrated my birthday here, nestled in the heart of quaint Ellicott City (which was swarming with Pokemon players!). Welcomed and served with class with a fine leisurely pace. Started with a light Chardonnay and escargot and my son, Tersiguel's version of traditional crab soup (quite generous). The lamb shank finished grilled at the table was top notch for my husband,...

This is a restaurant we discovered some years ago when looking for dinner after a round of golf. It is real French country cuisine, and a great deal of the produce comes from the restaurant's extensive garden nearby. Utterly outstanding food, with a modest but very thoughtful wine list - one of the few places where you can order Muscadet... More
