    The food was absolutely delicious! However, the restaurant music was so loud we couldn’t hear each other across the table and had to yell to be heard. I wish we sat outside instead. The only reason I would not return is because how loud the music in the restaurant is.

    dineLA menu was good but the dishes was tiny. We ended up ordering something else as well. The Bucatini tasted raw and we wasn’t sure if it’s fully-cooked or not so we asked for a replacement. Sticky toffee pudding was awesome, highly recommend

    Had an amazing experience at Tesse Saturday night. Sat at the bar and were regaled by both Matt and Katia (sp?). You both are great! Matt made some perfect suggestions for dinner (my wife had the pork chop and I had the beef brochette…Both excellent). Also try the cauliflower first plate…Sooo good. Portions are more then we could eat (but make great leftovers!). Terrific find and can’t wait to go back! Go early and sit at the bar… We love to do that and find that you get a much better experience of the place. Can’t go wrong with the bartender!!!

    Tesse never fails! Food is amazing and great shareable portions. The Hamachi Crudo is so good, you’ll want to order 2, grilled octopus and steak are amazing, roasted broccolini & cauliflower and so tasty. Ambience is fun although sometimes the noise level is load. Love this restaurant!

    We had to call for servers several times as they were filming in the restaurant. They should have told us this when we made the reservation the day before. With only three guest, they could not manage to get the food out at the same time. That is the biggest pet peeve of mine. The fish came 10 min. After the pork chop.

    Burrata was a disappointment; tasteless. The flavors didn’t work and the portion was small. I think there were too slices of pear and a dollop of burrata. My pasta came out cold and was less than impressive as well. It was the sea urchin pasta. My boyfriend had the pork chop which was nice. We won’t be going back.

    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.
