**Our menu currently features a six course Chef's menu only.**


Our six course Chef's menu at Tersiguel's is a combination of authentic French-style cooking and rustic country fare reminiscent of cuisine found in Tersiguel's original home of Brittany, France. Tersiguel's cuisine is reflective of the seasons, with a garden that produces lettuces, herbs, vegetables, fruits and edible flowers. When the garden is not producing Chef Michel Tersiguel will personally go and hand pick all fruit and vegetables at the whole sale market in Jessup, Maryland. Tersiguel's is quintessential French Country "from the farm to your plate" cooking. Chef Tersiguel describes his food as "French soul food". The Tersiguel family has operated one of the regions best restaurants for over 45 years and continues this tradition with annual ratings of "Best French Restaurant" from the Zagat and Baltimore Magazine.

    We knew ahead of time the menu and price was fixed, so no qualms there. Food was so full of flavor that we were starting to feel full around the 4th course (not complaining that the portions were to large). The escargot “pot pie” was delicious. My wife did think that one dish was over salted and was too full to finish the last two courses. I would say that if you do the wine pairing , be prepared to be on your toes to keep up with each course. Next time I might do it without the wine pairing.

    Could be a victim of high expectations here. For $100/person you get 6 courses, and for another $40 you get 6 paired wines, which is a good value. The location, decor, ambiance, and service are all top shelf. Food: cost cutting was evident in 2 of the courses, particularly the shrimp. Wine: bummer. The whites were okay. The server mentioned these were all house wines. I left disappointed; upon reflection, I can see the value. It's a tough place to be! Personally I'd have paid more to get more, but $140/person is a big number already. I'm a fan of the restaurant and wish you the best.

    We went to Tersiguel's last night for my birthday. The ambiance was lovely and the service was impeccable. The food was good-- the 6-course meal idea was a fun way to try new things that we might never have considered. I was expecting the food to be more memorable than it was (for the price). In my opinion, it does not compare to the quality, ambiance and service of the Elkridge Furnace Inn (our usual go-to for special occasions). Maybe it's because I had heard such amazing things that my expectations were inflated-- but I do not think we would go back again. We would however recommend it to friends to try!

    It is uncomfortable for me to submit this review, especially since I have enjoyed eating at Tersiguel's for at least 35 years. But our recent experience there was such a disappointment. There is only a single fixed menu available, with no options. Not only can you NOT choose from perhaps a couple of selections, but you do not know the menu in advance. I understand that in today's challenging economic climate, restaurants are striving to be more cost-efficient. But this fixed menu was not affordable at $100 per person. Again, for a well-prepared meal that we we expected to enjoy, this isn't necessarily unreasonable. Unfortunately, that was not our experience. Some of the courses were over salted. One of the dishes was actually poor quality. And for the final course, we weren't the only patrons who winced at the extremely tart dessert that was served! So to summarize: The menu is not made available in advance so that you can decide if it sounds appealing enough to dine there that evening; there are NO choices or substitutions; the courses are not prepared to the standard we have come to know and love at Tersiguel's; and not a great value for the price. On a positive note, the staff there always have been and continue to be AMAZING! We are so sorry to report that we will not visit again.

    Our evening at Tersiguel’s last night was exquisite. Getting a reservation was not a problem. We were greeted by name at the door and seated to our preference in a charming dining room. The restaurant really makes you feel like you’ve been transported ti France for the evening. Our waiter, Charlie, checked in with us throughout the evening, made delicious wine recommendations, and worked closely with the chef and the wait staff to ensure our tables were clean, our drinks were full, and that we were comfortable throughout. We had the prefix menu and the wine pairing and we’d recommend it to anyone looking to splurge and eat and drink the best food you’ve had in a long time. Charlie and Chef Michele explain to you what you’re eating, where it came, from and why they chose to cook and serve it. If I could go back every week I absolutely would, but this is a special treat of a place I look forward to returning when I can for celebrations. If you’re looking to splurge and celebrate, you must must must go to Tersiguel’s. It’s exquisite.
