    Definitely go enjoy a meal here. $$/$$$ prices but portions were fulfilling. We wanted to try somewhere new and we’re headed for Original but saw the patio across the street and glad we changed plans. Service was so PLEASANT and the outdoor space was really cute. Food was some of the best I’ve had in Milwaukee. Steak in the mushroom and wine reduction was so good I asked for more bread (also delicious) to sop up the leftover juices. My friend got the ravioli and I stole a couple extra bites from his plate. Honorable mention goes to the neighborhood setting of the location. Vibe and atmosphere was perfect for casual conversations/small celebrations/nice meal with old friends/date night.

    Definitely A hidden spot on the east side. The cioppino was out of this world! Mussels were super fresh, sauces were absolutely delish. We also shared a well put together Mediterranean salad with a citrus vinaigrette. Not to mention the flourless chocolate cake and butterscotch pudding was the highlight of my day. 10/10 would recommend especially those with gluten allergies the waitress and cook was super accommodating! they also have a very good wine list!

    Super friendly service and nice patio area.. four of us were looking forward to a ladies dinner out, and the wine was wonderful. However. 2 steaks were served well done, when ordered Medium Rare, and the Salmon came out Rare in the center when asked for Medium "chefs choice". While our server was fantastic and super apologetical, there was no visit by the manager, or anyone else to try and turn our experience around. Considering 75% of our meals were not enjoyed, we thought there would be some sort of "recourse". Nope. Nothing. No deduction in meal cost, offer for a glass of wine, dessert... etc. Not looking for a handout at all, but a "let's make this better" is the least a restaurant of this caliber should offer. Disappointed. Won't return.

    Cute and cozy place just off Oakland Avenue on the upper east side. The food was excellent and the beer list was great too. Our server was fantastic; knowledgeable about the menu, very friendly, and the perfect amount of attentive. I would be happy to eat at Tess again and again.
