I came here with my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday. From the instant we sat down, the service was amazing. Someone was always coming by to make sure we had water and the waitress came around very quirkily. She was extremely knowledgeable on the food and happily recommended us what she thought were the best dishes. Our food was brought out quickly and in a great order. Everything was absolutely incredible, and we both thought it was some of the best food we have ever had. The waitress also brought my boyfriend a sparkler for us to celebrate his birthday along with dessert? which was a great touch! We loved Tesse and will definitely be recommending it to everyone we know.
Great food, eclectic menu, good wines
Great place, great food, very original and we enjoyed the great service. Glad we finally went back there and we won't wait too long to return.
Simply stated any dish you order will be outstanding.
Great wine list, knowledgeable sommelier. Friendly, courteous servers.
Came here for an anniversary, amazing staff and great food made our special day wonderful. Thank you !
The cocktails at this place are amazing, definitely recommend. The atmosphere is a little too loud, I could barley hear my friends across our table. The staff is friendly and takes well care of their clients so that offsets that.
Very good food but was nearly impossible to talk with my partner for the level of noise
This restaurant is amazingly delicious! We sat outside which had a romantic ambience with the water sculptures.
We had the fat duck fries, lobster sausage (very different but super yummy), bread and butter; I had the black truffle fuselli and my boyfriend had the bone marrow bucatini — and then a wine luge with the bone afterwards! We ended it with the flourless chocolate cake.
Our server Gabriel was incredibly helpful and friendly and made our first visit to the restaurant an awesome one!
I brought my husband to Tess to celebrate his 59th birthday. We invited another couple. our waiter, Antonio, was wonderful and knew just the perfect amount of teasing we needed. I requested a birthday candle and the restaurant was very sweet and a couple of waders came by and we celebrated my husband‘s birthday it was very sweet. What a lovely evening. Thank you everyone at Tess.
Very good good.
Sat outside, but in front not in the back. Really loud with all the cars going by
Absolutely love the way this place is ran. Love the hostess and servers. The food is amazing and special experience. Will continue to come here
Loved it! I took my fiance for his birthday and everything was amazing from start to finish. We were splashed with bubbles upon arrival and our server was friendly and knowledgable. We definitely ate too much food but it was so delicious we couldn't stop! Also enjoyed a bone marrow luge with a dessert wine recommended by the som. Great experience- can't wait to go back!
Distinctly average food - which for some reason is standard in west hollywood
Our dinner was fantastic. The waiter suggested the lobster sausage and it was amazing. We loved the steak tartare as well. The branzino was flavorful and cooked perfectly. Can't wait to go back.
Birthday with old friends! Absolutely worth it! Excellent attentive server! Friendly and informative. Great food. Excellent charred octopus & duck fat fries! Half chicken very evenly cooked! Just everything was right. Even the mix up up with who's paying was very cutely handled!
Sunset menu, i.e. happy hour is a great deal for food and beverages.
Everything was great except for the bone marrow bucatini. All three of us weren’t sure if we could taste the bone marrow, it was overwhelmingly just cheese that we could taste. The pasta was also a little too al dente to the point of being too a little crunchy. Very enjoyable otherwise and it was a fun and trendy place.
Overrated food: most dishes were very salty, almost inedible.
Service was okay, but nobody said or did anything even though mentioned it was for Birthday celebration on the reservation
It was quite noisy inside.
Delicious food(cauliflower is amazing) ! Great service. Great ambience - just a bit loud.
One of the best restaurants to which we have been in LA in the 11 years we have lived here! Service was exemplary! Megan and Keelyn are great! Food was the best. Drinks were creative. Flourless chocolate cake is heavenly!
Buzzy atmosphere. Super attentive spot on service from entire staff. Good food, especially the cheese board.
One of my order didn’t end up coming out but everything else was great!
This is one of my fav restaurant and quality never disappoints :)
Wonderful service and environment. Caviar toast was amazing.
The food was delicious, but the service was lacking.
Great selection of foods, nice drinks and yummy deserts.
Food and Service was outstanding
We had a wonderful experience on a Saturday night seated on the back patio. Fairly quiet there overall and especially compared to indoor seating. The servers were very attentive and the food was spot on. The food is made for sharing and the four of us selected a great variety of dishes with the help of our waiter.
Lots of outdoor heaters that the staff kept adjusting to ensure we were comfortable.
I would definitely recommend if you are on a date or for a special occasion.
Great food and ambience. Our server Corey was such a professional and Kingston made us the most amazing craft cocktails. We will definitely be back.
Music was really loud you had to yell across the table and since they sit you right on top of each other you hear everyone’s conversation.
Friendly staff and excellent service
Amazing service and good recommendations. The bone marrow appetizer is a MUST. Best food I’ve had in a long time.. so much flavor.
Great food and ambiance! Very wonderful time thank you!
We were a party of four who came for brunch on Sunday. The lobster roll was very good as were the other dishes we tried, Avocado Toast, Egg Dish and Hamburger. We will definitely return and also recommend to our friends.
Food was good…support staff was fantastic, clearing plates, refilling water..ect) our server was great too but it was SO busy and I felt like they had too big of a section for them…they weren’t able to check in as often and was hard to track down….again, they were friendly and great but actively moving the whole time managing his section.
Very very very LOUD….it was completely packed on a Saturday night so that’s understandable too…opt outside if you can or come on a less busy night…overall nice meal but not sure we’ll try it again
AMAZING! The service, the food the outside seating...impeccable. Can't wait to come back very soon. Loved it. I really can't say enough great things about the entire experience. The "Stop Giving Karen a Bad Name" drink was unbelievable! The martini....to die for (just had a sip but would definitely order the martini)!
Excellence in service , food, and beverage. We have been many times and will return soon. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, and I don’t know how the cocktails can be made this fast. Everything was very quick here, and delicious.
Our waiter took our order for appetizers and then we never saw him again until it was time for our check (which was an hour later).
We literally had to flag down a random employee to order our entrees.
After finishing our entrees, we asked the table cleaner for our check and he brought it to us. Then our original waiter comes back for the FIRST time since taking our appetizer order and he had the audacity to have us sign the check on a machine in front of him (no paper copy) — he was obviously trying to pressure us into giving him a full tip. I told him we were disappointed because he disappeared and we literally had no service our entire dinner. He then responded saying he went on a break and he thought another server was going to take over his shift. However, this didn’t add up because we saw him serving other people during our meal. Also, why would he come back to make us sign the check if he thought another server took over our table?
I hate having to leave this review because the food was amazing, but the service was so awful. Our waiter had zero respect for us.
On top of all this, I also told our original waiter that I had a severe allergy and he never informed the rest of the staff (or the person “who took over our table” about my allergy).
I hope this restaurant gets better staff because this level of disrespect is atrocious. Service is just as important as the quality of the food in my opinion.
We had been to Tesse last time in LA (pre-Covid). That time we loved it but they weren’t busy. This time they were packed but we didn’t have a good experience. The gluten-free bread was just delicious. Everything else was just average. Had the burrata but really didn’t like what it was sitting on top of (some kind of hummus). Also had pork chop and salmon; both fine but nothing g exciting or great. Our server wasnt our favorite. Oh they did have a great wine by the glass selection. Husband wanted the burger but was told he couldn’t order because we weren’t in the bar? Atmosphere is lovely
