Terasol Ratings and Reviews
Terasol is a wonderful restaurant. I never hesitate to recommend it to friends. We were meeting a family friend and her daughter who had driven from Augusta, Georgia. Everyone was delighted with the food and the kindness of the staff. Thank you for making this wonderful occasion really special.
I've been to Terasol several times, and I've generally enjoyed the experience -- esp. on warm evenings when I've dined al fresco. This past time, I ordered salade nicoise, something I'd ordered at least twice in the past. The tuna was yucko! -- about 75% sinew. I really couldn't chew through it. And potatoes/other elements of salade seemed like they'd been refrigerated for a long while. Bread was the exception -- very good. Sadly, when I ask for a second piece of bread, it generally means the meal was weak and I'm casting about for something to fill me up.
To the proprietors and staff of Terasol -- I know you can do better!
Terasol is in my neighborhood. This is the second time I have been for breakfast/brunch, and it is outstanding. Entree omelettes come with a small green salad and bread and butter. They're a little stingy with the bread, but if you ask for seconds, they will accommodate. A wonderful way to spend a Sunday morning. We occupied our table for 2-1/2 hours with no nasty glances about leaving. Their dinners can be pricey, but brunches are reasonably priced. A real delight.
It's quiet, it's blissfully free of the endless prattle and din of the 20-something crowd that seems to dominate the Washington restaurant scene, the food (brunch) was excellent (although mine was not hot) and they very nicely accommodated my wife's gluten free diet. BUT.... it's slow. Glacially slow. Literally 42 minutes waiting for our one and only course. We'll be back but armed with the Sunday newspaper next time.
If you have a yen for Paris and can't afford to go to Paris, then Terasol is the restaurant for you, Every time I go, I feel as though I am back in Paris, sitting in a cafe with friends and enjoying life. We had a marvelous time for our lunch. We were celebrating a birthday,so this was very special. Thank you for making it that way!!!
Terasol has it all. The service, the ambiance, and the food are all exceptional. On weekend nights they have live music which is wonderful and not too over powering. The specials are always delicious and fresh and the chocolate bread pudding dessert is the best I've ever had.
I can not recommend this place any higher. Its a great little spot which has consistently great food.
You can count on Terasol. The first thing they do is bring out the most delicious - hot - French bread, again and again, if you ask. I did. There is music on the weekends which is festive, but a little loud for comfortable conversation. So, we sat outside and our waiter who subs as the manager, was absolutely charming. The dessert was fantastic.
We got to the neighborhood and took awhile to find a place to park on a night when the neighborhood was not too busy. When we got inside the restaurant,we found a few tables occupied, a few unoccupied waiters who took awhile to bring us menus an explain specials. The menu was fairly ordinary selections of French staples. We enjoyed what we ordered: Mussels, Beef Bourghenon, Crepes Suzettes. But we had traveled a distance to get there, had trouble parking, found ordinary food, ordinary service, and no real reason to go out of our way to go again. Sorry. But if we lived 2 blocks away, we'd probably return. But not worth the trouble to go out of our way.
Terasol is one of our favorites. It's reliable for wonderful food in a relaxed atmosphere, served by pleasant, helpful servers. And as you enjoy the food, you are surrounded by cases full of locally-made crafts that are perfect gifts for your friends and family. Try Terasol before or after a visit to Politics and Prose, which is right across the street.
Held a group dinner here for a group of friends and the restaurant was surprisingly quiet for dinner. However the food was very good despite slightly slow service. The restaurant is a nice neighborhood independent so I do recommend it, but perhaps for lunch rather than dinner.
Delicious dinner! We celebrated two family members birthdays,and it couldn't have been more perfect. The food is fresh, so you're not going to get your order in 10 minutes. Have one of their marvelous appetizers and a glass of wine, or browse the magnificent artisan collection at the front of the restaurant. I couldn't comment on the noise level because we ate outside. I will go back again and again!
Loved everything I had to eat. I was suprised they ran out of the quiche Lorraine which I imagine is more popular than most. The service is what led me to give this 4 stars. They rarely checked on the outdoor tables. It took about 30-40 for an omelette and we had 3 different servers. The people next to us were trying to make a movie and kept asking for their bill. Overall I'd go here again for a leisurely morning.
The food was very good, and the waitstaff were attentive, if a little overwhelmed (the restaurant was crowded). There was music - that puts everyone in a festive mood - but for such a small space, the music was too loud. When they were playing, we could barely hear each other.
As always, the food was very tasty and the staff delightful. The combo playing on the weekends makes Terasol even more special. I'm not a fish lover, but was thrilled to have ordered the trout, which was cooked perfectly and was absolutely yummy. Of particular note is the bread, which has to be great for an authentic French bistro. Terasol's croissants and baguettes are the real thing. Brunch, with French press coffee and a croissant (plus a quiche if you're hungry) can't be beaten.
You won't be disappointed. I feel lucky to have this restaurant in the neighborhood.
I looked for a restaurant on Connecticut Ave. and came across Terasol. French cuisine and a bistro atmosphere with music has become a favorite now. The food was outstanding especially the Herb Crusted Salmon with risotto. My friend had the rack of lamb and raved about the sauce. I had one of the best meals and evenings I have had in a very long time. There was a guitar and bass playing in the background and provided a great selection of music. Terasol is a quaint small neighborhood restaurant with excellent service and outstanding food. I can't wait to come back and try a brunch or a lunch as well as other entrees for dinner.
