Server was attentive at first, but my sirloin steak was over cooked n tough n my friends ribeye was over cooked. We had to return them. My sirloin was over cooked again n tough but I kept it to not ruin the night. Our husbands has to eat without us n weren’t very happy about that. My first strawberry fizz martini was great but the 2nd was very sweet n much darker, not consistent. The server forgot my side of ice and my gelato. A manager never came by w any apologies. We get together every month at a nice restaurant n chose Theresas prime. Well over $800 was spent. Not a good experience at all…Louis Iovine/Russell’s

Service was a bit slow. Very expensive for location. Special was steak and grilled lobster. Steak was good but I got a half of a lobster tail that was the size of their shrimp! Baked stuffed shrimp was a piece of their crab cake. Not very original

Teresa's is superb, especially for a big splurge. (Our tab was $200 pre-tax). The steak melts in your mouth, the wine was excellent and everything was great.

I knocked it down on service a little bit. Our server was pleasant enough. But we had to wait when we got there (we had a reservation), and the wait from appetizer to dinner seemed long. The server commented that I was "doing her job for her" by pouring the wine but I would not have had to if she came back once in a while. And the place was not packed. I suspect that they're shorthanded these days like so many places. But, not my problem. I don't grade on a curve.

But don't let that minor problem prevent you from going. This is an excellent restaurant.

Not a great experience. It could be due to staffing issues during Covid, could just have been a bad night. I will say there was no issue with the staff; they were very nice and very attentive.
Issues:
1) Food came out WAY too hot. At this level of restaurant you shouldn't have to be wary of scalding your pallet. Very disappointing - it's a bit of a pet peeve for me.
2) The peppercorn sauce was much too strong. I am an avid steak and peppercorn sauce fan, and technically the sauce itself was very nice, but it was so strong that it completely overpowered the taste of the steak (The steak was very good btw!)
3) There were MOSQUITOES in the restaurant. I don't know what was going on, but right towards the end I killed two mosquitoes - unfortunately I had been bitten 4 times before I caught the buggers.... and I am quite allergic and flare up from them. Not what I would expect dinning indoors in a closed section of a relatively find dining restaurant.
Anyway, thats it.... I will say I have eaten in this restaurant before (about 2 years ago) an had none of these problems.... hopefully it improves again in the future.

Very attentive and friendly service. The owner personally came to our table to check on us. Lynn, our server was very knowledgeable about wine selections. The menu offers a balance of seafood, steak and pasta. All of our dishes were delicious. We all agreed that we would definitely go back. I need to eat gluten free so I especially appreciated that the chef prepared hot bread for me. Thank you.

We have been to Teresa's several times. The food and service are always excellent. I especially appreciate the care and attentiveness of the owner. There have been past visits where the noise level was uncomfortably loud. Tonight, even though it was busy, the noise level was very low - allowing for easy conversation.

For a date night, I highly recommend the semicircular booths. It allows you to sit next to your date and it also provides some level of privacy from the rest of the room.
