Excellent food, outstanding service, and exemplary COVID safety protocols. Our only concern was a large, loud party seated immediately next to us. The noise they generated was certainly out of the control of the Teca staff, but their table was a bit too close for COVID comfort once the wine was flowing and the laughter and shouting increased. This would not keep us from returning, but I might ask for a table further from other unmasked patrons.

Staff was great, Food was fine but we felt uncomfortable. The room we were in was full... definitely not limited to 50% capacity. Will not be back while Covid pandemic persists.

Filet was very tender that you could cut it with a butter knife, oysters were the best our guest said that they have had and the fish special was great as well. My request for a quiet table was perfect.

Teca is a good option for outdoor dining, They are following Covid-19 protocols. The tables are distanced and the wait staff wears masks. The service was average. My "angry crab dinner was delicious. My husband found his veal chop chewy and over cooked. The bread was delicious but arrived after our appetizers. I guess this missed our table. Best part of the dinner was the pumpkin brownie cheese cake...Yummy!

This was a really nice place to have dinner. Our daughter attends a local college and we met for dinner. Food was great and so was service, as we expected. This was a special place, as the restaurant is owned by Alberto, who also owns Casali Bibbiano, in Tuscany Italy! We stayed at Casali in Italy, and our family had a GREAT time there. We loved the restaurant, although it was hard to compare to the rolling hills of Tuscany!

I have been to Teca a lot with family. In the last 3 months, my fiancé and I have gone 3 times. Each time we have gone we haven’t been checked on much by the server and have had to ask other staff or bus boys for different things. I don’t know if it’s because we look young or what. The apps seem to be getting smaller and smaller. Last night we decided to skip getting multiple apps and we only got the charred octopus. There was a significant difference from the last time. It was like 3 small pieces thrown on the plate with a couple of white beans and nothing else. My fiancé ordered the salmon and I ordered the lobster raviolis. The entrees are always amazing. I usually get Branzino and he gets filet. Then I got the pumpkin brownie cheesecake for dessert. Service was OK. We just weren’t checked on and constantly needed stuff but decided to not bother with half of it. I am in the industry, so we always tip 30-40% regardless. It just hasn’t been the best experiences. We are going to try them again next month. We will see. For now I’m keeping it at the higher stars.

Met friends there on Saturday evening for dinner. Elected outside seating due to the pandemic. It was one of the best dining experiences I've had since we started venturing back out. Teca has not missed a beat while maintaining cleanliness, social distancing, etc. Can't wait to go back!

While the food was AMAZING and the service was great, there were still too many people packed too close together inside the restaurant. Given the current pandemic, I had hoped for more thoughtful spacing of guests.

Food was very good as usual but we weren’t finished with our appetizers and our entree’s showed up to the table , se we were rushed . It won’t happen again, the server is supposed to watch that and tell the kitchen when to fire the order . Very disappointed

We were seated right away at the time of our reservation. Service was good although a bit of a wait to take our order. Drinks and food were timely and delicious, however, servers slow to refill water glasses.

Food and cocktails were great however felt rushed by the staff to leave after dinner. Turned me off from
Going here for a friendly catch up. It’s more of a dine and dash kinda place. It’s a shame we were really enjoying ourselves. Made a reservation at 4 pm and place was empty yet they said we had to order all of our food at once. Couldn’t even give us a second to order an app and then think it over. Said it’s policy to put all food in at once. Guess there’s a first for everything. I hate a place that doesn’t accommodate a customer. I would have paid double the price of the meal to be treated differently. My friend and I are healthcare providers and were wearing our uniforms from work, you think they would have been a little kinder during a pandemic.

Great atmosphere and great food! On Sunday night for dinner, the host was rude with a bad suit and too many silver rings. He didn't look at us, but stared at his computer screen until he handed two menus to a disgruntled waitress who didn't say anything to us and sprinted to the table to put down our menus. In contrast, our waiter was awesome and so was the roasted filet mignon.

Great food and service. We had the angry crab and the grilled misto, both were phenomenal. Julia was our server and although they were extremely busy, our service was spot on. The manager Mike was also super attentive, as we loved that we didn't have to ask to turn the heaters on or ask to have them moved closer to us once other guests left because he was on it! Loved our experience, will be back soon!
