Tersiguel's French Country Restaurant
Very good, though not at its bestI've been going to Tersiguel's for years, and it's one of my favorite places. This last time it wasn't quite at its best, though. The Salade Michel lacked flavor until my friend asked for more dressing on the side. The sausage with potato salad first course was dry. The rockfish en croute, the fish special, was also lacking. The scallops in passion fruit butter sauce, however, were superb, as was the buckwheat crepe with caviar. All in all a satisfactory but not flawless experience.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambience and Great food.Great ambience and Great food. Excellent service as well. We went for a birthday and had a great time.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTersiguel'sWas looking for someplace off the beaten track. Lovely old house on Ellicott City's Main Street. Food is French, excellent sauces, portion size was modest, which this perpetual dieter really appreciated! LIked the free taste of cold cucumber soup before the meal, and little birthday mousse afterwards. We were offered a choice of tables, either main dining room or small (two tables plus bar) room in the front by the window facing Main Street, which we chose--essentially a private dining room. A little pricey, but not out of line for fine French dining. Would highly recommend for a special occasion.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe BEST!Best chef, best restaurant, best staff, and the best dining experience in town. Food is prepared with expert skill and with tons of love. Nothing more needs to be said!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM60th Birthday lunchThis was a nice restaurant for a girls celebratory luncheon. They were patient with us as some were late to arrive. Food was good. The asparagus omlet was good but not great. I would have preferred it be accompanied by a salad rather than hash browns that I was not sure were home made. Everyone enjoyed their meals.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointedDining at Tersiguels always a pleasure with excellent wait staff, reasonably priced and delicious wines and a varied menu that offers a good range of choices6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely RestaurantWe really enjoyed our dining experience at Tersiguel's French Country Restaurant. We were there for several special celebrations rolled into one. The food was excellent and the service was great!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Le Tersiguel'sThis is my go to place for authentic French cuisine in my area. I adore the food and the staff, and the service is also impeccable. We always go to Tersiguel's for all of our special occasions. I rate overall a 4 star & highly recommend!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEllicott City's FinestIn a county with many fine restaurants, Tersiguel's may very well be the all-around best, when one considers the combination of atmosphere, food, and service. The menu is fairly stable and consists of standard French fare, and indeed the name "French Country Restaurant" is apt: one will rarely find anything especially innovative--just excellently prepared food from quality ingredients, locally sourced where possible. The service is impeccable: respectful, attentive, and non-obtrusive. Tables are far enough apart, and the building's acoustics conducive to quiet conversation. The restaurant is a real charmer and an especially good place for a special occasion.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMwe ordered the chef's tastingwe ordered the chef's tasting menu with paired wines. 8 fabulous courses and they were very accomodating to food allergies and dislikes. great service!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for anniversaries!We've been here a number of times for our anniversary and other special occasions. The food is unique and outstanding. The service is very attentive but not intrusive. We were going to sit in the Hunt Room (?) but it seemed very crowded in terms of the table placement. Maybe it was set up differently that night. We sat in the front room across from the bar by the window and it was lovely. I would highly recommend this to anyone for that special occasion!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMTersiguel'sThis is a tried and true restaurant. The service, quality of food and presentation are consistent and always above average. It's location in old town Ellicott City is great for spending some time in the neighborhood, before or after your meal. The building is old as are most of the ones in the surrounding area, but that's part of the charm.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMRepeatedly a FavoriteFrom arrival to departure, one feels very special when dining here as one does when dining in France. As in France, they greet you with a small complementary treat . This time we were treated to baby radishes.On this, our third visit, we sat in the garden sun room which which cheered us up considerably on such a cloudy spring day. Our very attentive and informative waiter suggested the Brittany soup which was perfect in every way. The duck was brilliantly tender and moist. The beef burgundy, the salmon dish and sausage dish all received the same glowing remarks. Wonderful!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial celebrationsGreat place for special celebrations. My best friend and I have made Tersiguel's our birthday tradition. We celebrate here almost every year. It never disappoints.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding eveningWe were there on an unusually quiet Friday night, so it was quiet. The food was incredible. The waiter recommended a tapas-like seafood starter, that included the best calamari I've ever had! We ordered the two specials of the night: halibut and soft shell crab, and New York strip with pork belly. Both were cooked to perfection; melt-in-your-mouth. Excellent Brussels sprouts on the side. We couldn't leave without the Crepes Suzette, complete with table-side performance. Fantastic! The wait staff was attentive without being intrusive. We will definitely return - they have brunch!!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWell Worth the tripFor many years we have driven from DC to Ellicott City to meet Baltimore friends for lunch at Tersiguel's. We always look forward to a warm welcome, a lovely setting on the sun porch, a delicious meal and excellent service. It is a very special place.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a treat!I just love this restaurant - our dinner was fabulous. It never disappoints - the food is top notch and so is the service.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for Mother's Day lunch.Went for Mother's Day lunch. Service was excellent. Two of the meals were excellent, the third was just OK.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat job on Mothers DayEven though the restaurant was packed to the Gil's, the staff did an excellent job in taking amazing care of our four top. Everyone including the owner constantly checked on us, and our food was delivered with perfect timing. Unreal given the crowd. My mom was thrilled. Thank you so much.

The specials were odd combinations that we didn't try. The food was inconsistent. One hors d'oeuvre was delicious, the other bland. Same with the entrees - one very good, one ok but not captivating. The atmosphere was lovely and we had a very relaxing evening.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall excellenceExcellent food beautifully presented and served. Everything was wonderful.

My wife and I can't think of one instance where the meal hasn't been spectacular. The consistency in quality is really remarkable. This is our favorite restaurant in the entire greater Baltimore area and we've been to most of the upper end restaurants in town.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWas pleased overall with theWas pleased overall with the service. The waitress went through the specials way too fast and by the time she finished the list I had forgotten what she said first. They took our leftovers to package up, but failed to return them when we left. We realized we didn't have the doggie bag until we were almost home, but decided it wasn't worth it to return. We really liked the bread served with the meal. My guests were pleased and we had a good time and that's what counts.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIf I could award 6-stars, I wouldTersiguel's delivers consistently great food and service - a definite special occasion location or business meal that's sure to impress!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AM"ambiance & gourmet with class"We enjoyed the restaurant very much and intend on coming at least 3 times per month. The ambiance in the solarium was excellent with the classical music.

The restaurant was full but I felt like the ambiance was off. Perhaps a little background music would've been nice. It's definitely a restaurant that I'm glad I have checked out a couple of times but I am not in a huge rush to return.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMService was impeccable andService was impeccable and the food was absolutely delicious.

Tersiguel's is no different. For most of us, dining here is going to take a very significant bite out of your wallet. The good news is that Tersiguel's is worth it. If you're looking for an upscale night out, this place delivers. First & foremost, the food was excellent. There was enough variety to satisfy most tastes and a number of the food offerings seemed authentically 'French country.' A close second to the outstanding food was the service. It was exceptional. The waitstaff were attentive without being obtrusive. Also knowledgeable, polite, well-dressed, and clean. Do yourself a favor and go to Tersiguel's for your next special occasion. It's worth it.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous! It was not justFabulous! It was not just dinner, but a wonderful culinary experience.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have dined here now twice.We have dined here now twice. The first time was a Sunday evening and a very slow night. The service was very attentive and the food excellent. Second time we went was a Saturday night and the restaurant was full. However, the service and food was still excellent. Dining here you feel as though you are being welcomed into someone's home and they make a great effort to make you feel special.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMTreated like RoyaltyThe service, the ambiance, the food was all top notch, as expected. This is my favorite restaurant, and we chose to have a private wedding-day lunch here, and it was the right decision. After the rush of ceremony and photography, it was delightful to sneak away to a quiet dining room for some exquisite French food. Our server, Charlie, is perhaps the most attentive and helpful "food and wine guide" I have ever had the pleasure to meet.1/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
