Went for the first time with our Groupon for our wedding anniversary. Ordered from Tess during early Covid to support local independents but never did dine-in until now. Was a beautiful evening and enjoyed their patio. Fantastic meal, wonderful service. Tess did not disappoint and we will make the effort to return. Upscale, casual dining with foodie-approved, creative offerings.

Everything was good but, both times we were here the waitresses we had were not to friendly. They did not engage in any conversation with us. Just named the specials and off they went. Came back 5 minutes later and asked if we were ready to order. We didn’t even get a chance to look at the men

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.
