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.
They try very, very hard to make it a very special meal and it was appreciated.
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.
I think the restaurant is overrated. Everything was good but this restaurant is rated on a par with those in NYC and it's not even close.
Every dish is the best you have every tasted. It is culinary art! This restaurant is a wonderful experience. Well worth the price.
My husband and I celebrated a special birthday. We really enjoyed the white glove service and attention to details. Te is definitely a special occasion place but the food and wine are amazing. It's not just dinner, it's an experience. And totally worth it.
Wines were great but food was ok...presentation of food was superb... servers tried too hard & seemed fake and was very expensive.
From the time we entered until our check we felt like absolute royalty. Regal dining room; professional and attentive wait staff; with excellent food to boot. The intermezzo's were inventive and delicious as well as the main courses. We went for an anniversary and will certainly be back.
The food was very good- the service excellent. Holly was very knowledgable and very cordial.
My adult son (a foodie) and I had a cause for celebration, so we dined at Te. I was glad that we did: It was an outstanding meal. I ordered the 5 course meal (with wine pairings) and he had the 9 course. Our server apologized that our courses would not line up evenly, but I was prepared for that because I don't eat as much as he does. Actually, it felt like a continual feed, anyway, with all the courses that we ordered plus many "extra bites" that they served. Dairy products were omitted, as requested, from my son's servings, and that went well, too. We had a long, delightful dinner and left feeling quite satiated. We'll probably go back for our next extra special occasion.
