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

Service was outstanding from start to finish! Steak au Poivre (sp?) was very good, and the portion was generous. We also had their Maryland crab soup which was nicely spicy and very yummy. Probably cannot afford to come here every week but we will definitely be back!

Lovely French restaurant in historic Ellicott City, MD. A bit pricey, but expertly prepared gourmet menu served by professional staff.

So I've lived near this place for well over 10 years, and never been. People always said the same thing, "good, kind of expensive..". That's a crap review that does not do it justice in the least. Took my wife there for a long overdue date night, and we could not have been happier. Decor is interesting - hand made... More

We had 9 family members gathered to celebrate a high school graduate. Some had traveled very far. The experience here was very memorable and we all left very happy for the fine evening we spent together. The wine, the appetizers, the bread, the main courses, the dessert, the coffee were all excellent - even the children's menu. Most important to... More

This is a fabulous restaurant. I had the pate and duck comfit, my wife an amazing shrimp appetizer and the filet. The service was impeccable, the dinner presentations just flat outstanding. We enjoyed the meal, the wine, ourselves and the experience. Its a special restaurant that sends one away feeling so much better than when one arrived!

This was our third trip to Tersiguel’s restaurant and I think it will be our last. In the past I thought the food and service were worth the price for a special occasion. This time I was very disappointed. I had hoped for much better. I’m surprised to see that this is still rated the #1 restaurant in Ellicott City.... More
