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

I hesitate to write anything remotely critical of any Ellicott City establishment after the flooding, but unfortunately my recent dining experience at Tersiguel's warrants it. A friend and I decided to treat ourselves to brunch after some holiday shopping, so we chose Tersiguel's. As soon as we entered the restaurant, we were met (or should I say my friend was... More

Setting and atmosphere is delighfull in an old house atop of Main Street in old Ellicott City Because of its association with french chef ownership this restaurant has offered french style cuisine for years. Unfortunately the ratio of price/food soars too high. Menu rices are indeed very very high for what is offered, and the cooking--albeit not bad--is not in... More

The devastating flood July 30 in Ellicott City closed Tersiguel's, which re-opened on October 26. Michel Tersiguel has used the situation to remake the restaurant and its menu, and the changes are for the better. We were there the first night of the general opening. The interior has been painted from top to bottom. Soft greens envelop what was the... More

My wife and I were anxious to support our neighboring businesses in Ellicott City after the horrific flood that closed the historic area for 3 months. We went last night and saw a Tersiguel's with the same familiar faces, same good food, same friendly service and a fresh coat of paint. The menu had several nice offerings. We like to... More

Tersiguel's reopened this week and has not missed a beat. Had the Breton fish soup for the first time, and it was outstanding. The special striped beet salad was great as well. I greatly enjoyed the beef two styles, and my wife loved the veal. The chocolate cake and lemon curd were perfect endings to a great meal. As usual,... More

Good French food and really nice location. It is in an older place in downtown Ellicott City. We really enjoyed the meal and service. It is a little pricey, but worth it.
