Food wasn’t good at all .
Went here for dinner on Saturday night. Everything was amazing. They followed all COVID protocols. The drinks and food were amazing. I loved that there was no time limit as to how long we can stay, which is great because you don’t feel rushed to order and finish your food. Also great that they had heat lamps as some places currently don’t.
We have been Tesse fans a long time. Always enjoy going back, they have wonderful outdoor seating. The service by Jacob was fantastic and the food was great as always. Five stars!
Excellent food with amazing service! Vincent the somallier is the BEST!
GreAt food. Great service. Great ambiance.
Came for the food, stayed for the Tokaji, returning for the service.
It was extremely cold and uncomfortable- heater was not working
The waitstaff we had was very rude.
Their outdoor area around the back overlooking the “skyline” is a great addition. It’s a beautiful area. The food is always great.
Been to Tesse time and time again and everytime the service is very poor. Our party is always treated with sass for no reason, and when ordering, we feel very rushed. Please train your staff better.. it's not that hard to teach being nice. Service is the only key thing that ruins the entire vibe....
Tesse has adapted to the pandemic with style! The courtyard dining are is incredibly comfortable, has beautiful atmosphere, and the food at Tesse is always wonderful! Fortunately, the staff is equally as good as the food and atmosphere,
Outdoor seating at night is pretty cold so the food got cold pretty fast once it hits the table, but totally understand. Food is great.
One of the best restaurants in LA.
Finally great dining is back in LA. Delicious food, great drinks, outdoors and cozy
Sat outside here due to COVID-19. It was well heated and the staff was very attentive. The food came in a timely manner, and each dish was well plated and tasted great. Would recommend the Burrata salad and the Salmon dish. Ambience was great, wish that the inside was open but still enjoyed sitting outside. Would recommend.
Flawless service, delicious food in a Beautiful setting!
Tesse has done a remarkable job of dealing with COVID and created a truly romantic outdoor dining area that is comfortable and beautiful. Their food and service remains exemplary. We're lucky to have Tesse in the neighborhood.
I didn’t expect gratuity of 20% was included - party of two people. Our waiter didn’t mention that.
Food was cold and nothing to write home about.
From beginning to end, we had a great experience!!
At the door Nicole was sweet and kind to us.
Rodney and Jacob were very friendly and they made sure me and my 7 years old daughter had a good time.
The "Sunset Hour" was nice, excellent price for the happy hour menu.
I ordered a glass of wine that I didn't really care for and Vincent the sommelier was knowledgeable and suggested a different one that I loved.
Overall it was a great experience!
We will def be back!!!!
Absolutely amazing food. 5/5 portion size is pretty large actually (everything is served family style)
Outdoor dining is the reason for 4 stars. It was very loud and on the sidewalk. We had homeless people asking to buy chocolate bars (the server scared him off the second he saw).
Great menu, awesome wine list, and friendly staff. Come for the food, stay for the experience. They have a nice large patio as well.
My husband and I had a beautiful experience at Tesse. We love it.
The host at the door was robotic and rude. Our table wasn’t ready when we arrived and she used the excuse that she wouldn’t seat us as one of the party hasn’t arrived. They arrived 6 mins late. We asked if we could be seated or at least order a drink whilst we wait and the host said that she didn’t have the authority to answer that question. We were seated 55 mins later than our reservation and was told by, what seemed to be a manager, that the time of the reservation doesn’t mean it’s the time we’ll get seated but means that we will get seated this evening but we have to wait it for the guests to finish their meal. Only once, after a major prompt, did the manager apologise. This was below par on the service front and very poor for such a lovely restaurant.
The server once, we were seated, was an absolute joy and the food was incredible. It really is a gorgeous restaurant and was unfortunate that we had an awful experience before we got seated.
The reservation was at 7:30 they took us to table at 7:40 they brought one of the foods after 15 from the other food and also was cold they have wine listed in there menu with price in the end when i asked for check I noticed they charged me double of the price i asked the waitress she said oh we brought you the other kind i was like it would be nice if you would tell me the price so definitely i will not go back and I won’t recommend to others
Everything was perfect from beginning to end. The server was wonderful despite it only being her 3rd week there! Wine was impeccable. We had the Sancerre. And the food was amazing!! The GM (Chris) was welcoming and accommodating to 2 of our guests cancelling last minute and gave us a fable for 4 instead! We will be back!! Jax
We had to wait 40 minutes to be seated despite having reservations and entire party arriving on time. They were apologetic though and gave us each a free glass of champagne while waiting which was nice. But still... 40 minutes standing out in the curb?! What's the point of having reservations??? To be fair ... Our server was great! Cocktails were amazing! Appetizers and entrees we ordered were all amazing! Then dessert... chocolate souffle... supposed to cap a great meal but instead... it was raw and runny in the middle... like a thick chocolate sauce. It would've been great if it was a lava cake, but it was a souffle! That was a disappointment!
The food took awhile to get out due to a misprint. The food was hit or miss but overall good. Great atmosphere!
Sweetest Day surprise!
Sat us 30+ mins after reservation time, drinks came after food, servers were hard to come by, added 20% gratuity to a party of 4 without asking.
Its a second bad experience with service in 2 trips and i will likely not return despite the good food.
Got seated right away, nice ambience, delicious food, and good service! Will definitely be coming back! Highly recommend for date night. You have to get the bone marrow bucatini, 10/10!
Great food with a nice wine list. Attentive service. A little loud on Sunset but overall good place.
Extremely poor service. Snappy, not friendly and not helpful waitress. Runner and busser did everything for us and provided great service. I don’t know if it’s their policy since is not disclosed, but she included a 20% gratuity on the bill... which is fine if you At least work for it! The food on the other hand was phenomenal.
Went for a belated birthday dinner. The food, drinks, and outdoor seating were outstanding. The sunset hour cocktail pricing was a great surprise. We were warned when we ordered our food might not come our coursed, just "as ready" from the kitchen. Not a problem. Still came out perfectly timed. We will definitely be back!
The food at Tesse was amazing. Our server was great and the hostess was sweet. I brought a few friends there to show them the restaurant since I had gone once before and loved it. The only thing I can say I wasn’t happy with was the fact that my friend, a sommelier, picked us out a nice bottle of wine only to have it brought to the table already decanted without anyone presenting it first. I was a tad upset because I had told them such good things about the restaurant and then that happened first thing. When we asked why it had come decanted we were told a few different things. We were told by their sommelier that it was for optimal tasting, which is true, but didn’t explain why they decanted it without presenting or asking if we wanted it decanted. The server told us they usually do present the bottle, and then take it in the back to have it checked and decanted. The manager told us it was something enforced by the CDC due to Covid, to limit interaction between staff and guests. They did not know it was a table of people who work in the service industry, and a sommelier who knows correct protocol and presents hundreds of bottles of wine a day. Unfortunately that did put a damper on an otherwise great meal. To order a $100 bottle of wine and have it brought to the table already open was a little unsettling, and unprofessional, given that we had no way of knowing if we got what we paid for. The wine however, was delicious. Luckily my friend could tell it was the correct wine and we were able to enjoy it.
Excellent service outdoors with good social distancing and extremely pleasant waiter! Enjoyed the cauliflower and the cod special of the day with couscous was extraordinary!!
Love this restaurant - more limited menu due to Covid, but amazing sunset hour deals and delicious hummus!
The vibe was dope. The service was great -- the food and drinks kept rolling out. The server/ wait staff were very friendly and engaging with our group which made it fun. Really good drinks and wine list. The outdoor seating was a plus. Would definitely come back.
An absolute treat to dine at Tesse. Great food, lovely outdoor dining on the plaza and fantastic service. We'll be back.
