TE' is located in the former Tea Parlor of the historic Inn at Leola Village, and has been awarded Forbes' coveted Five Star award for fine dining, putting TE in a group with some of the most elite restaurants in the world. The restaurant is surrounded by flower gardens and walking paths, as well as the chef's herb and vegetable gardens. Guests may enjoy an aperitivo in the courtyard garden or entrance lounge prior to dining in the romantic twenty seat dining room. The dining room is adorned daily with fresh flower arrangements by the Inn's resident florist. Typical dining time for the five course prix-fixe is two to three hours or three to four hours for the nine course degustation menu. Both menus are also available as vegetarian. The intimacy of the dining room is not conducive for children under the age of twelve, however, a private dining room as well as a five course children's menu is available upon special arrangement.

As top notch as it gets - Service, food, ambience, overall experience. You will be lucky to experience a better restaurant anywhere. Of course, is very expensive but you already know that when you make the reservation. Put this place on your bucket list - you won’t be disappointed.

Absolutely everything was perfect, delicious and full of surprises. The staff catered to our food sensitivities and even made us special gluten free breads, and a special sugar free dairy free desert. We had so much fun!

To celebrate my eldest daughter’s birthday a girl’s weekend reservation was planned at Destinations. A five course dinner at TE was the highlight of our stay. Candlelight, gracious hosts and splendid creations served with a flair made the night for my two daughters and I fun and a special memory.

The restaurant is lovely. The wine paring is not a good package to include with dinner. Bottle is a better since some of the wines were mediocre at best. The 5 course dinner was very good but certainly not outstanding. The staff worked very hard to be attentive to our needs. At times they were a bit overly solicitous. For those who have not experienced high end luxury dining its worth the "investment".

From the time walking up the walkway and being greeted by a door man and being welcome in the lobby I felt like royalty. The atmosphere was very relaxing. We were greeted at the table with champagne, which was really nice. We did the five course meal with wine pairing. Every wine was delicious and different. In between courses they would bring out a sample to eat, which was a nice touch. We left that night with a beautiful cake to take home for my husband's birthday. I could go on and on, but not enough space to write. Awesome experience!!

They charge “welcome drink”. We didn’t need them but we thought it’s free that’s why we said yes. Usually welcome drink is free. They should said they gonna charge before we give us at least.

We offer a high quality sparkling wine at the beginning of the meal. Unfortunately it is not offered as complimentary. In addition to that sparkling wine, we have a list of cocktails and wines by the glass which we may present when guests are interested in other choices. We do ask our guests to provide any feedback when the meal is concluded. We ask that any discrepancies with the bill be brought to our attention at that time. We're pleased you enjoyed many other elements of your evening.

To speak of our dinner at TE as a once-in-a-lifetime experience is not exaggerating! My husband and I were treated with genuine courtesy and kindness. The food surpassed anything we had ever eaten before: every dish delicious and each dish complimenting the previous one! The wines were exquisite. The presentation of the dishes was extraordinary. It was an unforgettable evening, and—though expensive—worth it in every way!

I was intrigued by the location of this restaurant, in a medium-sized boutique hotel in a small town east of Lancaster, PA. Why would an AAA 5-diamond restaurant be located there? There is nothing else around. Having now dined there, I think it is one of those "build it and they will come" stories. The restaurant is very small, only 6 tables. The decor is what I would describe as rustic elegant Italian. The food was spectacular as you would hope for from an AAA 5-diamond restaurant. There were two tasting menus to choose from, a 5 course and a 9 course. We chose the 5 course, and even though the portions were small, there was plenty of food by the end. The dessert was spectacular, both in presentation and taste. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion. Expect to spend $350 to $500 for two depending on which tasting course, wine pairing, etc. Expensive (no surprise for AAA 5-diamond), but it does not disappoint.

Wonderful experience at Te' for our anniversary. We had the Prix Fixe menu with wine pairings - superb! Chef and staff was very friendly and provided excellent service. They even provided us with extra food and wine tastings. Small place, but what an experience. Will definitely be back for future special occasions! Highest recommendation for anyone looking for a fantastic, one of a kind meal!

All five courses were bland in taste. Wines were fine. However, having paid for the wine pairing @ $60 total cost per person, an additional charge of $16 each was added for a flat glass of a Charles de Fere Brut. We were never informed that this was in addition to the standard wine pairing charge. Not impressed! Cannot recommend this restaurant. Also, the listing on OpenTable was not up to date, listing different hours of operation and had reviews that were 10 years old for items no longer available. Last, the cancellation charge of $50 each with less than 24 hours to cancel seems punitive/threatening in nature.

Remarkable dining experience where nothing was missed. Unparalleled level of service, impeccable timing throughout the evening. Food was over the top with presentation and flavors. It is not inexpensive but it is worth it. The amount of preparation that goes into dining at TE is rarely experienced in all but the most exclusive of restaurants. Finding it in Lancaster county was a surprise.

The restaurant is very bland in appearance nevertheless comfortable, quiet in a small area. The service was wonderful from the greeter to Skip the maitre 'd to the staff Ethan, Holly and Brian however, the food process interrupted any opportunity to have a continuous conversation. The food was very exotic in description but anything but in reality. I found the food process was annoying- 1-2 items on a huge dish sprinkled with graffiti. Because it was multiple small dishes, you were never able to have a continuous conversation without interruption. I CAN'T SAY ANY OF THE COURSES WOWED ME. We had a duck dish that was terrible and found when we met another couple (we were only 3 couples dining on that evening) that they felt the same about that item and the meal in general. We loved the wine choices and the knowlegeable staff but not very impressed by the food and presentation. We found the dessert presentation aweful and very unappealing. I don't find throwing scattered fruit and chocolate on a rubber mat exciting, interesting or an attractive concept. We were never given the option of whether we even wanted dessert. We have dined at restaurants in New York that were highly rated and equally expensive and went home feeling pampered, satisfied and spoiled. I did not feel the same way at Te. We love the Inn at Leola and would retun hoever would not return to this restaurant.

I chose this restaurant, and hotel, as a place to take my wife, to pamper her, as a way to show my deep appreciation for her. TE' and the Inn at Leola Village did not dissapoint. We were highly impressed with the food and the service. For us, this was special experience; one that we'll remember.

The meal was beyond expectations. 5 star. Expensive but worth it. Expect 4 hours but time went quickly with the wine parings and chefs additional presentations. Make reservations early. TrueType one of the best restaurants in the East.

Amazing from start to finish. Magical experience for our 25th anniversary. The wine pairing with the 5 course tasting menu was unbelievable. The food was plated like works of art. The cheese trolley is a must. Wonderful accommodations for a gluten free guest. Carnival dessert was over the top and outstanding.

Staff was lovely, knowledgeable and professional.

Michelin graded restaurant that lives up to the reputation. If you want fantastic food and absolute pampering, eat there. The 9 course wine paired menu was outstanding. The entire experience took over four hours. The dessert was truly amazing but a little much after so many preceding courses. Would pare that course down a bit. Will
Be back for next special occasion.

The Degustation (tasting) menu was well well thought out. There were 9 main courses and 3 additional amuse-bouche (little bites) between the courses. The Carnivale course was very good, but the description seemed extensive or over the top.
The good: The ambiance was really good. The food presentation was very good, overall. Wine pairings were also very good.
The only so/so: The menu descriptions are extremely limited, so it is hard to know what you are getting. Food preparation was good, but there were a few items that were challenging to eat (and even cut). The Cuttlefish was nearly impossible to cut, as the knives were not sharp enough. There was rendered pancetta with the wild boar that were like little stones (read: way overcooked). There were a few times where children could be heard making noise in the hallway that was separated by a heavy curtain.
The disappointment: The first impression with the sparkling wine introduced as you sat down, seems wonderful, but it is certainly not part of the pricing, and should probably be. Additionally, generally with a tasting menu at a restaurant of this caliber, I would expect that the service be included in the price. This is not the case. Finally, two of the staff repeatedly stated mascarpone incorrectly. It should never be pronounced "marscapone" ever.
I would consider going again for the Prix Fixe menu.
Overall I would give it a solid 8/10.
