    Nice , hip venue with attached wine shop. Service was good, and the menu had potential. Ordered the Burrata with Hummus but it lacked flavor and was just spicy. The New York strip was plated well and with the wood fire grille preparation. Lavo up the street has better flavor food.

    Fun, eclectic menu. Even though the feeling of Tesse is casual there is nothing casual about their attention to the food or service. We had the cauliflower (read about it in Eater. It has an interesting flavor combination that just WORKS); beef tartare (fantastic), Franche-Comptè terrine pate (delicious but could have used a couple more veggies and more toast); grass-fed lamb chops with asparagus (absolute perfection) and a chocolate souffle (good!). The gluten free bread tastes like the GF bread from Le Pain Quotidien: whole grain, dense, delicious. Everything was perfection. They also have a great wine and house drink selection. It's not inexpensive but honestly: is ANYTHING inexpensive today? You know how some restaurants are good... nothing's inherently WRONG with them but not necessarily memorable? Then months later realize you've never returned? That is NOT Tesse: I called my husband from the car to tell him we need to go there together ASAP. TIP: check out where the parking garage entrances are before going (there are 2) because driving on Sunset during rush hour is...um...not fun... but their garage has more than ample parking. I highly recommend this place.

    It was our 3rd wedding anniversary and appreciate that I was able to get a same night reservation. When we arrived, they seated us promptly, but that was the only prompt thing that happened afterward. Our waitress was very sweet and helped us navigate through the q-code menu while we watched all other guests be handed actual menus. It took about 10-15 minutes to get water, the glass bottle and glasses had a sulphuric smell. We ordered drinks and they were made with 1 ice cube. Another 20 minutes and they came back around to take our appetizer order. Another 30-40 minutes, my husband’s plate is brought out. We wait another 15 minutes for my dinner. The food was delicious, but definitely overshadowed by their rotation.

    Pleasant but nothing exceptional. A bit overpriced. Kitchen seemed off as plates arrived at different times for breakfast. So if one was courteous and waited for everyone to get their meals, their eggs would’ve gotten cold.

    The service was really attentive and on point. Gabriel took such good care of us. Food was delicious and the portions for the tasting menu were way larger than expected. The cocktails and wine were also yummy. Thanks for the recommendation on the red burgundy. Lovely first dinner on my visit to LA.

    We did the $35 5 course tasting menu. Lots of variety - salad , cauliflower dish, pasta, chicken, big, sticky toffee dessert. Very generous portions Food was WAY oversalted to 4 people's taste buds. They corrected. Sometimes took 35-40 min between courses. Would have been a great value, had we not had drinks which are $20+ each. Also bread is $8. Trendy restaurant, pretty, SUPER LOUD. One of the loudest I have been to. Could not hear staff so good we ordered Prix-fixe. Overall good, not sure I personally would return b/c of noise level. I would sit outside if I did go back, quieter.

    Dinner celebration for friend. Loved the value menu options (F the recession and the sunset hour). Since we had outdoor seating, there was a bit of road noise, especially when the motorcycles go by but it was nice. Would have liked the outdoor seating on the other side with the view and water feature more but totally understand when staffing is an issue. We had the La Grand Dame and felt pretty full feasting on the variety of cured meats and cheeses along with the fire roasted bread as well as our cocktail drinks. We agreed that our favorite was the Gold Rush, simple but delicious! Though we were feeling full, the four of us decided we had room for the 14 oz Aged Prime NY Strip. It was well cooked and tender, however, we really got the dish for its duck fat fries. Service was great, everyone was friendly but gave us just enough space to enjoy dinner. Only thing I'd say we missed was that no one asked if we were celebrating anything, but a good dinner none the less.

    A good meal and good service The let down were the glasses. Martinis should be served in a martini glass. Not sure what glass our martinis came it - more like an aperitif glass of sorts. Also the glass of white wine came in an unusually sized glass This made it appear we were being stinted on the beverages which nobody appreciates John Martens Cell: (310) 508-8355

    We started with the saucisses de franche-comte, duck and fig terrine and epoisses - all were delicious. For main courses I had the spinach cavatelli, which was rich and sumptious, and my husband had the beef tartar which he found a little salty. The bread with Normandy butter was also terrific.

    Tesse never disappoints! The food and service are always exceptional -- and they have the best pork chop in LA! The space does get loud when the dinner crowd arrives in earnest, and it is pricey, but it's always worth it to have dinner or brunch there.

    Très bonne expérience culinaire au Tesse, des produits simples mais très bon. Par contre,prévoyez que toutes les portions sont à partager et que si vous voulez séparer fruits de mer et grillades il faut le préciser car sinon service a l’américaine où les plats sont amenés aléatoirement en fonction de ce qui est prêt en premier.

    Recently visited Tesse to enjoy their prefix menu it’s $35 a person but they have it set up to feed 2 people so since each serving is for two people, it should be advertised as a $70 prefix for 2. If you’re a party of 3 you’ll be charged as a party of 4 which wasn’t explained to us. So, make sure to dine here with an even number of people otherwise you will pay for 4 people instead of 3. Originally we wanted to sit outside but the street traffic is too loud so we asked to sit inside which was way better. Indoor seating is comfortable ambiance is great, food service is great, overall delicious and recommended.

    Recession menu is a great deal and the bone luge is fun! It's basically a shot of Madera from the bone marrow bone. The cocktails are pricy but AMAZING. Must be the tastiest cocktails I've had in a while.
