Food was great. This is also a great place for people with dietary restrictions. They are a "from scratch" kitchen so many ingredients can be removed. My wife is celiac and they were able to serve her well.

Food is excellent. Was a little thrown off by the appearance of the interior (old tiles with 2x2 table settings and paper tablecloths) but overall food was great, staff is professional/courteous, so would come back here again

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.
