The outdoor seating is suboptimal, we were the furthest table from the restaurant which includes street traffic noise instead of the restaurant music. Tables right outside have music so maybe request seating closer to the restaurant.
Went for brunch/ lunch and ordered the crudo, avocado toast, and pancakes. To be honest I went for the pancakes, and they did not disappoint. Probably the best pancakes I’ve ever had!
It was descent.
When one orders a glass of wine, without naming it, don’t bring in the most expensive on the list.
Everything was awesome! The food is to die for, especially the lamb!
Good food.service was slow but she was almost alone in a very big outside section. Host was great. Super nice and great attitude.
Bomb Food! Not exactly sure why a lot of people are complaining about service. We had excellent service. Above and beyond! Even asked for special desert and our dear Megan insisted on going and getting. Now that’s top notch that’s caring for your customer. As far as food, I ORDERED the entire menu just to find one item not delicious and I couldn’t find non. Every thing was 100% perfect. Thanks Guys.
Terrible experience. The food is so expensive and it’s not even that good. I won’t be going back
Wonderful food and service. A number of outstanding dishes. Don’t miss the sticky toffee pudding.
Really friendly service and a wonderful happy hour!
Gets better each time. Great cocktails and wonderful menu choices. We always start with the charcuterie cheese board and then share sone mains and sides. Great wine list and nice service staff. It’s our new go to place!
the food and staff were so great. Overall fantastic experience at this place
Incredible service. Delicious food. Great ambience. What more
can one ask for.
Absolutely stellar experience!!!
Our reservation was at 8:30pm and we were seated promptly, but once at our table, the table was not touched until 9pm. It was very cold and windy, so between that and having no service for over 30 minutes, we decided to just leave.
Our first night out was a lovely experience! Impressed by spacing and Covid precautions taken. The service was friendly & efficient even with all the new guidelines & crowded restaurant. The food was hot & delicious! So nice to see it is possible to eat out safely! Great job Tesse!
Poor service, never got water refills or drinks
Excellent service and excellent food. Will for sure be back!
Amazing including the bar just fantastic
Everyone was very nice to us, special 2 Victorias, they were amazing with us!
The servers were lovely, the wine list was pretty good, and the outdoor vibe was great. (It was the first time during the pandemic I've been at an outdoor table where everyone was happy with the heater temp and placement.) Maybe the pandemic is still handicapping their food production, but the food was mediocre. The chicken was cooked but just barely. The fish was scaly. Even the olives had a frost-bitten quality. The prices weren't too expensive, so it didn't feel like highway robbery -- just robbed the restaurant of feeling special.
Do not sit outside in the front. Horrible car sounds on sunset. Also the food took forever to come out. Don’t recommend
It was fine. The food was good, but it felt like the waitress had no time for us. We sat outside at a shaky table on the side of the building. For the amount of money it cost, I would say it wasn’t the best experience.
The service was fantastic. Helpful and friendly. Food was very good. I only wish we could have chosen which of the the five cheeses/pates were on the appetizer board as not all were to our liking.
The hostess was rude and the food was underwhelming.
This is a lovely spot for a date; the Sun Also Rises cocktail is my favorite in L.A. Servers are friendly and knowledgeable. Food and drinks are excellent. They also have a wine cellar with bottles for sale.
The sunset hour menu was quite extensive and enjoyable. There were some good selection of drinks, all for fair prices and generous portion. The dineLA menu was fine; I liked the appetizers more than the main courses. Overall it was good.
I really enjoyed the food and experience here. The bread they give looks like it came straight out of the oven from the village my mom grew up in. And the butter? That alone was enough to come back. The duck fries were incredible along with the lamb chops. Los Angeles portions are usually so small but we had to stop ourselves from eating so we could enjoy the next plate coming. The service was EXCELLENT. Everyone from our server to the busboys to the management made sure we didn’t have to ask for anything, they were on top of it. We even got a little bday song and candle with dessert for my boyfriends birthday. Thanks Tesse!
We waited 45 minutes after our reservation. The manager was rude and unapologetic and said “a reservation is just a guarantee on getting a table but not a time”. If that’s the case then you need to tell your customers that. Standing outside in the cold in winter in LA for 45 minutes isn’t acceptable. Your a manager so mange the time of all the tables. Additionally, a lower level employee said the tables before us got there late and stayed later. Again the managed should take control but clearly that lacked.
To experience dineLA, the entire experience, food, service, everything was wonderful 🥰 loved it!!! Highly recommend!
Great place for sunset hour, can't go wrong if you're in the weho area and want a place to eat at.
Been to Tesse multiple times and usually the service is on point.
We ordered a SKIRT STEAK and received some other steak.
When I asked the waiter if this was the skirt steak I ordered, he curtly said it's a different steak and left without asking to fix or apologizing.
I'm not sure if I will be returning as frequently as I have in the past anymore....
Amazing food and lovey staff! Was a little cold and noisy off the street but that’s sort of a given considering circumstances.
Exceptional as always. The food, service, and wine are the most consistent and warm that I have experienced in LA. Beef tartare is outstanding and I dream of it/need to eat it 1x per week pretty much. I love tesse so much!!!
View was awesome and the food came out pretty fast. Great experience overall.
Took advantage of the DineLA this week and this has to be one of the best restaurant experiences I've had since I moved to LA. The service was spot on and our server was very knowledgeable about wines and food pairings. My friend and I's water glasses never got even close to empty and the food was served quickly and hot. I definitely will be back here to sample the other amazing dishes on the menu!
Great spot with epic happy hour!
Food was delicious, wine pairings were superb, social distancing and guidelines were followed by staff and guests, our wait staff was very nice we didn’t have to ask for anything, and lastly great overall dining experience. We’ll be back!
Amazing food very high quality I was very please from the service and I am highly recommended it was a very good and joyful experience
Great food, great service, great ambiance. Love that place
Trendy, upscale French food for those who know nothing about French cuisine... will not go back
