They satisfied my craving for chicken marsala this weekend, which I ordered as takeout. When I got home, it was just as amazing as having it in the restaurant! The staff is quick and knows how to...

Consistently good food, delicious soups, crisp chilled salads, fresh breads and entrees were cooked to perfection and plentiful. The service was attentive and responsive.The ambience was tasteful and confortable. We were not rushed and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. An excellent dining experience for lunch or dinner.

Tessara's has a few house specialties, like their Tournedos of beef in an excellent sauce, which will keep you coming back.They are the most consistently good restaurant around. we took advantage of the happy hour first for a cocktail and appetizer before heading to the dining area for dinner. Friendly staff!

With our group, we used to have monthly networking lunches there, and while I can attest to the friendliness of the staff, the food is OK but not enough to take my family there for dinner.

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.
