    Dinner at Tesse was truly outstanding and exceeded our expectations. My wife and I enjoyed dinner here on a Saturday night. What a great destination for a fun, delicious and romantic dinner! The ambience was great, the drinks were really interesting and the food was phenomenal! We ordered the octopus, the cauliflower and the lamb and each dish was very creatively flavoured. My wife has a gluten allergy and there were tons of options. Great vibe too. Highly recommend.

    Visit #1: We were seated outside and the street was very noisy. I’d recommend trying inside for your first time. The Service was phenomenal, we had a very sweet, funny, and attentive waiter. Their food was top shelf quality, but it is a pretty penny for one night’s dinner out. Luckily, I went here to celebrate a few met goals with family. Tesse will definitely be my “celebration dinner” place moving forward! I was very happy with my selection.

    First time eating at this WEHO restaurant on Sunset. We waited 10 minutes before anyone came to our table to order drinks. Drinks were delivered, then we waited another 10 minutes before someone came to take our order. He was arrogant, impatient answering questions we had about the menu, and got out of there as quick as possible. However, the food he recommended, bone marrow with pasta and branzino were EXCELLENT. Maybe they were understaffed, but the restaurant was not super busy.

    If you sit outside, there are bugs that fly all around you, in your water and on your table. Our table was right next to the front door by the textured brick wall and there were so many bugs (harmless) crawling in and out of it… just not the greatest to have when trying to eat. There were 2 bugs that flew into my hair and stayed there plus another one that landed on my back… probably better to eat inside in the summer unless the invest in bug repellent

    The cauliflower salad and whole branzino were excellent, and the wine list was extensive, but when we asked to taste a wine before ordering it, our server was condescending and unhelpful, and then pouted when we gave an 18% tip.

    I had not been back to Tesse since pre-Covid and I was underwhelmed. Service was great, however, food was okay. There are a few tasty things on the menu (like steak + pasta), otherwise food was definitely average.

    I took my parents here for Mother's Day and my mom and I decided to go for the $45/person Mother's Day package while my dad ordered the French Omelette and a mimosa. The service here was A++ and the ambience and food were pretty good, but my mom and I felt oversold on the Mother's Day package. At $45/person, we were hoping we'd feel more satisfied with the food we were given, but it just felt so little. We noticed that the regular menu offered a brunch package for $25/person for the same amount of food and we felt that, if the Mother's Day package was still offered at that price, it might have been worth it. Perhaps it would have been a better experience food-wise had we ordered a la carte.I really commend the service here, though! Everyone is so friendly and attentive.

    We were greeted and seated promptly. Very nice service team and wait staff. The outdoor patio is street side (and street level) so really really loud traffic. The food was very good expected at that price point. Very fast out of the kitchen and everything was fresh.

    I thought the restaurant would have more of a wine "flavor." Ironically, the staff put burgundy wines in a bordeaux glass twice. That said, the food was really good. We arrived early enough to have some of the happy hour options and then ordered off the menu for our main courses. That said, we ate outside because it was loud inside. I didn't care for the ambiance of the restaurant at all. I probably won't go back.

    Everyone at Tesse, from the people I spoke to on the phone, to the waiter, to the guys clearing the table were wonderfully warm and kind. Our waiter very much knew his way around the wine list, and brought the perfect glass when I described what I wanted. It was *chefs kiss*. I can’t go into detail on the whole meal because this review is lengthy as it is BUT get some charcuterie, definitely the pate, get the crudo, the octopus, if you loooove seafood definitely have the seafood sausage it was so creative and delicious. The duck fat fries are classic and so crispy and delicious! The beef tartare was SPLENDID. Just order your face off, you can’t go wrong. We’ll be back! *side note, I have a service animal and the folks at Tesse were so accommodating, really very appreciated. This place is top notch.

    Great food, company and ambience. Might have been a tad too loud music wise, but it was a late evening dinner, so I guess to be expected. Highlight of the dishes were the steak tartare, burrata and charcuterie board, and the great one had there. The duck and bone marrow bucatini was lovely - though maybe a bit too rich and fatty for me. But that was a personal taste. Would highly recommend coming to visit and dine at this place. Food is excellent overall, and great for social gathering as it's a sharing concept.
