Very attractive courtyard with socially distanced tables, servers wearing masks and gloves, plus paper menus. We really enjoyed our entrees and look forward to experiencing the friendly and efficient servers again soon.

Our party of 4 for dinner really enjoyed the courtyard dining experience. The service was friendly and efficient, the food simply delicious. All 4 selected the fish entree and were very pleased. We also enjoyed desserts. We particularly appreciated that the servers wore masks and gloves, provided paper menus and socially distanced tables. Looking forward to our return visit,.

About Tess

Described by OnMilwaukee.com as "a warm and relaxing getaway that's close to all the East Side action," Tess occupies a renovated Victorian on the Milwaukee River's east bank. Chef Martin Magana and his team man the kitchen, marrying locally sourced ingredients with time-tested counterparts: sage with sausage, strawberries with arugula, and potatoes with beef. Although the chefs adjust the menu seasonally, they maintain a consistently robust wine list and artisan beer collection. Tess's modestly sized dining room opens up to a garden patio, which then opens up to Narnia, but only if you have the proper armoire.
