10/10 for the sommelier! The name your price dessert wine tasting was such a fun experience - we were quite literally drinking history in a bottle and learning quite a bit too. Amazing food, wonderful outdoor set up.

Amazing service! Our server was extremely accommodating and just overall very sweet. We were surprised by how different Yelp pictures were compared to the food we received, but not a bad thing. Menu has been updated, so just a heads up your dish may look a little different. Great vegan and gluten free options as well.

Overall great experience. Unfortunately, we went on a chilly night, so it was a little breezy out - but that didn’t hinder the evening at all. Check in was quick, our table was ready and the food was great. We opted to go with the Hamachi, onion rings, bone marrow, and the lobster Mac and cheese. All delicious. Will definitely be back.

We had to leave quickly, because no one could make the heater next to our table work, and we were told, that restaurant was short on heaters, even though other parties of 4 had one or two next to them.
The food was great as always, amazing portions and very interesting menu:) I do recommend this place for when the weather is nice.

Celebrating friends birthdays. Very nice atmosphere and wonderful, friendly waitstaff! The food is excellent however, the kitchen needs to time the mess a little better as some guests receive their entrees well before others at the table. Overall excellent dinning experience!

Honestly everything we ordered was fantastic EXCEPT for this beet, endive, blue cheese, apple salad which I don’t know if we got a bad version of it - but if not they need to get this item off their menu immediately. It was super pungent and bitter which was surprising because everything else on the menu was fantastic.

From the moment we we entered Tesse, we were immediately impressed, the owner Jordan greeted us personally and escorted us to our table which had one of the best views. Our servers, Jacob and Jake could not have been more attentive, they checked with us continually and never kept us waiting. Now let’s get to the food....WOW, WOW, WOW! Everything we had was great, chefs pate with toast, fresh baked bread with Normandy butter, scallops and truffle (cauliflower hummus, lettuce heart, blood sausage), Hamachi Crudo (fennel, gooseberries, crispy wild rice. And for dessert, sticky toffee pudding (medjool dates, toffee sauce, frozen yogurt.

Tesse is going to be my new go to spot, with the outstanding service, delicious food, great view, and a most wonderful host, I don’t know why you’d want to go anywhere else!!!

Thank you Jordan for a fine dining experience!!

My favorite French restaurant in Los Angeles. The team is highly talented; the back patio is beautiful; and most important.. the food is magnificent. Be sure to try the caviar toast, and do NOT miss out on the desert wine flights. The wine selection is exceptional.

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.
