Described by 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.

Food was fantastic, well above expected and equally as good as many higher end restaurants in town. Service was mediocre. Ambiance good.

The food was delicious, and the service was outstanding. I had rack of lamb, and my wife had salmon. We have always had great dinners there.
