    The cocktails are good. The idea of the menu is great too but poorly executed. Bone marrow and Uni pasta, crab simplissime are way too salty. And both pasta were undercooked. The caviar toast is great but that’s the only good one. As for the service, my server disappeared for 20min. So I asked for the check before I was asked for dessert. It was my birthday and I was very disappointed with the service.

    We ordered all the dishes on the Sunset menu and one of the charcuterie boards. Most of the food was pretty good but a few stood out. The humus and the burger was very good.

    The food is good and the waitstaff is wonderful. My issue with this establishment is that management adds 6% of your total pre tax balance to your bill to help them cover the employee health insurance. How about pay your staff a livable wage and understand that part of the price of having a business is paying for health insurance for their employees. I know of no other business where such costs are passed onto the client. It is not fair that the waitstaff may receive less of a tip because the customer may think that the 6% the management is changing the customer goes DIRECTLY to the waitstaff- it does not. Do better Tesse- do better.

    Fantastic meal - portions, flavors, timing, all perfect! Glad to come back to try brunch after having had our holiday party in the boutellier back in December. Thanks to Oscar for the warm, prompt service and to the hostess, too, whose name we didn’t catch. We’ll be back for sunset hour soon! P.S. Don’t sleep on the bloody maria cocktail, yum!

    For our Anniversary, coming to Tesse was an unforgettable experience. They were very attentive throughout our entire meal- with repeated clearing and replenishing of plates and cutlery, a considerable amount of attention to our drinks and refilling them, and amazing theatrics with our Cocktails, the Woke up Like This and the Tiki Menage, the Bucatini with Bone Marrow, the Bone Luge, and the finale with our Sticky Toffee Pudding. We were also left in awe with our NB Ranch Dry-Aged Tomahawk and Caviar Toast. Every dish was delectable and still left us wanting to try more! We're returning and will bring along friends and family too! For any special dinner occasion, I highly recommend this place!

    The service started great and slowly but surely went downhill. The restaurant seems to be full of staff including management who are taking orders and running plates, but it’s just unorganized and kind of chaotic. Our server didn’t inform us that the kitchen serves food as it is ready. Its not coursed out. Our apps came out sporadically. One of the members of my party was completely finished eating her entree before the 3 others (including me) received our entrees. When the entrees came out, once again the two of us who order the lamb got our food while the last person at the table once again waited 20 minutes before his food came out. He was forced to eat alone as we sat around and waited. I’ve been to restaurants with this practice, but most food is sharable and you order “family style”. This was just an unpleasant experience. The food was mediocre (I had lamb, octopus, and gem salad) besides the pork chop (that was 5/5). The server did give us complimentary glasses of champagne for not informing us about the kitchen. He also gave us a toffee cake to share (which was amazing). I would only go back to sit at the bar or with one other person, but not with a big group.

    Cory P was an outstanding waiter for our table! I took my boyfriend out to celebrate his birthday, and we had a great time with Cory taking care of us. My boyfriend got free champagne for his birthday and sparklers was put on his dessert, so it made the occasion all the more special. He loved the glass of Spanish wine that was recommended to him, so he bought some wine bottles from Tesse’s wine shop. We had lovely conversations with our waiter Cory as well as the wine director. I couldn’t believe the time but it ended being a 3 hour dinner because we had so much fun!
