This restaurant has been recently rebuilt after a devastating flood. There is a new, smaller menu. Many of the vegatables and herbs come from the owner's garden. I have eaten here for many years and never been disappointed. If you want to impress anyone, bring them here.

The traditional setting is beautiful, though the entrance was a little crowded. That can't be helped as long as you are in this traditional setting. The dinner was wonderful. We had a fennel and yellow beets salad, wonderful bread from, they said, a bakery up the street, coquilles Saint Jacques on a leek risotto, filet mignon, and chocolate mousse in... More

We finally tried this place after we moved in ellicott city six months ago. My husband and I spent dinner together in November and we decided to go back with my parents in law in December. The experience was really outstanding! Saucisse Grillee Alsacienne for appetizer. Poisson Du Jour; fish of the day was monk fish at that time &... More

We typically don't do the big party out for New Year's, but we prefer a nice dinner out to celebrate. We have found this place over the past 4yrs and it has become our New Years and special occasion place for great food.

Tersiguel's is up and running again after the big flood of summer 2016. The food is now a bit more adventurous than before but the fabulous bread made in house is gone. The new menu for brunch contains some great dishes and the waitstaff are as competent and warm as ever.

The Good: The atmosphere and the service staff were very good. The crab hordeves was very good. Not so great: I was surprised that on a Friday night, there were no specials. The menu is limited. My wife chose the lobster spaghetti entree. It was just OK. Not great at all: I decided to go with the sirloin with mushrooms... More

Wanting to support Main St. and wanting to take advantage of Howard County Restaurant Week, we had high, high hope for our dinner. On the main we enjoyed ourselves BUT it was off-putting that we had to ask for the RW menu and that it was only two courses. My salad was wonderful and I enjoyed the pork chop with... More

Tersiguel's has been one of my favorite restaurants in historic Ellicott City for a number of years, and a recent visit reminded me how much I'd missed the delicious French food and the charming, cozy dining room. Service was very good and quite prompt--just as expected. Everything from the kitchen was seasoned well and full of flavor, plus the portion-sizes... More

So happy that this restaurant is back after the devasting floods in Ellicott City. We were happy with the food and service at this French restaurant. We enjoyed our shrimp appetizer, as well as the scallops and lamb dinner, although the lamb was a little too fatty. The desser we shared was a Granny Smith apple tart in, and it... More
