The Tersiguel family have been serving their unique version of French food for over 40 years. The 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 40 years and continues this tradition with annual ratings of "Best French Restaurant" from the Zagat and Baltimore Magazine.

I found this place to be over priced and stuffy. Neither of us enjoyed our dish. Would not recommend to anyone, and will not return.

So disappointing. I had such high hopes that this place was going to be delicious. I would absolutely drive a little further to find a better restaurant.

Snarky servers, even with the Valentine’s Day crush, are never a plus.

We had a wonderful time. The atmosphere (including the surrounding Old Ellicott City) and service were highlights. We went for Valentine's Day, and I suppose because of the busyness of it, their only option for the night was a four-course meal. It was a surprise not having a menu and not choosing the meal, but we actually prefer fewer options. The downside was, there was only one price (and it was high). Neither of us drink and sometimes we avoid dessert for whatever reason, so we wouldn't have minded the option to not do that.

Had Valentine's Dinner. Fixed menu was okay but I notified the restaurant about allergies. they accommodated on the day by substituting Confit of Duck for Fish but put the duck in the same cream sauce prepared for the duck - totally inappropriate. balance of meal was good though expensive.
Service was poor - Maitre D advised on wine (which was good) but after promising the name of the wine never saw him again. other servers very poorly trained... the $80+pp meal was served in less than an hour with no time between courses. utensils I used for may starter were replaced on the table for the next course. espresso was not available.
overall, while i like the restaurant and have been here before i will think twice before returning again. very disappointed.

Tersiguel's serves Baltimore city fare at NYC prices. Dinner consisted of an overly expensive chef's 'tasting menu' of just four courses, one of which was essentially a throw away as it was considered a palate cleanser for the dessert course. To say I was underwhelmed is putting it lightly. Spending ~$250 on a single meal (wine and tip included) should provide a memorable experience, and Tersiguel's was simply not up to the task. Save your money for Volt, the Charleston, or La Cuchara, local institutions that are truly worth the cost.

Outstanding French restaurant! I recommend Tersiguel to friends and family members. I have never had a mediocre meal there. The ambiance is great and the service is excellent.

Tersiguels was an unexpected find! We wanted to do an early Valentines Day and could not have made a better decision to eat here. Charlie, our waiter, was amazing! I’m also glad our reservations were earlier as we had more time to talk with Charlie, who is super knowledgeable about the restaurant. As the night went on they got busier and it got a little louder. The food was amazing! Perfect portion size and the flavors went so well together. We didn’t really order from the menu because the specials for the night sounded so good and we were definitely pleased. This is not a place to come to if you need to eat quickly, although they did ask if we had to be somewhere. We plan to make this our Valentines Day spot from now on!

A lovely experience with wonderful service. Our waiter was extremely knowledgable about all of the selections and made sure we had a relaxing meal. Nice ambience and a good change from our regular go-to spots. The rockfish was cooked to perfection!

Avoid restaurant week. The portions were small and we ordered additional dishes to taste. The fresh oysters were good but there were pieces of shell found in most of the dozen shucked oysters. We went to celebrate a Birthday and surprising the restaurant never acknowledged especially we put it in our Open table reservation.

Dined there for restaurant week. La Soupe de Poissons de Bretagne was very tasty, and delicately seasoned.
