We moved out of the country July 2018 after having lived in Ellicott City for 25 years. Tersiguels was always our go restaurant for any special occasion. Even Sunday brunches. Always delicious, staff always super kind and attentive.

Can't say enough great things about Tersiguel's! Food is awesome and Charlie is the BEST server on the planet! It isn't inexpensive, though; so we usually go for special occasions. Going during Restaurant Week is a great bargain. Highly recommend! Love it!

Dinner at Tersiguel's for restaurant week was excellent. The beef bourguignon was excellent. The beef was tender, the sauce was flavorful, the mushrooms and potatoes were tender. The pear tart for desert was excellent.

I don't think they have an required dress code. However, when we went for dinner, my boyfriend was wearing a button-down and jeans and I was wearing a casual sundress and we felt under-dressed for the meal, but Tersiguel's... More
