“Superb cuisine and, if you can believe it, even BETTER service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Went to Tersiguel's as a treat for Easter dinner. Tried their special seafood appetizer sampler, plus a favorite of ours, escargots ... great! We had the Poulet (chicken) and Viande du Marche, (featured meat for the day, beef! ... both delciious. And, to try something different, closed with the "goat cheesecake". The service was great ... friendly but also unobtrusive. We will DEFINITELY be going back!

“Easter Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

I just had a lovely Easter brunch at Tersiguel's. The food was wonderfully prepared and fresh as always. Fernand was at the door greeting everyone. I did not have wine at this meal, but I have always found the wine list is very good. This is a great "special night out" restaurant. You really should go to this restaurant despite all the new offerings in Howard County. Tersiguel's has been in Ellicott City a long time and never disappoints.

“Special Occasion or Just a Nice Evening for Two”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Everything is done right at Tersiguel's. The food is very, very good, the service is stellar, and the atmosphere is just right. Plus, Fernand Tersiguel is almost always on property to see that the quality of the restaurant remains high. The menu changes seasonally so what I ate last month might not be on the menu when you dine there. But be assured that, no matter what you order, your food will be delicious. It is expensive, so know that before you go. But do go, you won't be disappointed.

“A must go to place in Ellicott City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Absolutely top notch food and service. This is not your average French restaurant - it is French country cooking with a creative flair. Always the freshest ingredient's, some direct from the chef's parents' farm, make the best meals. Tersiguel's has an extensive wine list that includes some high fliers as well as affordable drinkable wines. Tersiguel's is consistently one of the top restaurants in the area.

“An Ellicott City "Must"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

For lunch or dinner, you can't find a better place on Main Street. Great service, ambiance, and cuisine just as it was prepared back in Fernand's home in Brittany. Many of the vegetables are straight out of Fernand's garden. Ask for reservations for two at a window seat overlooking Main Street ...enjoy a nice bottle of wine while you relax.
