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.
Second time dining at this restaurant. Enjoyed it just as much this time as last. Very consistent!
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!
Wonderful ambiance and comfort level, protected from the elements with outdoor atmosphere.
Was an excellent server
Food was very good
Outside dining was nice on the porch
We will be back
It was a great date
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
Food awesome- took a long while to get two of the dinners. Two other parties seated after us were served first.
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.
Offers wonderful outdoor dining.
Tables are well placed.
Staff offers great service. Your water will never be empty long.
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!
Amazing, all of it.
Great atmosphere, service and the food is delicious!
Really a nice porch set up for dining. Felt like indoor dining with plenty of open air movement. Service was good, Eggplant Meatball as app was very good and i recommend. Dinner above average. Espresso Martini A+
Nice outdoor dining space. All protocols observed. Definitely a great option if you want to stay outside
Disappointed in entrees. Very expensive food and drink.
Food was good and service was amiable but extremely and I mean extremely slow!
The waitor, Niko, was terrific. The food was excellent. The service was attentive. A fine dining experience.
We brought my mother in law to Teca for her birthday. We sat outside. The noise level is loud which I had forgotten after eating there previously. The food for the most part was good. We had chicken parm, rigatoni and meatball and octopus and crab with avocado mousse and fried capers. In addition, two Ceaser salads. The salads were deliver immediately after we placed our order. The dressing was good but the lettuce was too wet. Once the salads were removed, the meals arrived immediately. Nothing like feeling rushed! They obviously were looking for a quick turnover on the table which is disappointing when you’re celebrating a special occasion. In addition to that, paying their price!
Fine restaurant. Doing a good job with the virus constraints.
Always a great experience and even better food. Never disappoints!
My lamb was delicious. Tender and very flavorful. We enjoyed sitting outside in the alcove.
Teca is great for so many occasions: date, family dinner, celebration, huge party, bar night, just because. Huge space and parking lot with friendly staff. The food is always very good. Seems like the menu has been scaled back a little (maybe due to covid? Missed that Penne Vodka!) but the food is still delicious. Had the arancini app special and we loved our angry crab spaghetti, lobster rav, and cavatelli. I think I would have liked to see more pasta dish options and appetizer options; but personally, everything was still great. Awesome drink menu.
Outstanding food and service. Sat out on the covered porch, wonderful — except, no fault of the restaurant, multiple VERY loud tables yelling amongst themselves and to each other during our dinner made it just a bit less pleasant than it could / should have been.
Lovely evening! Great waitress thanks so much however two in group ordered fusilli special it was disappointing
Thank you Brook for excellent service and a great meal!
We loved our dinner Saturday night... we sat on a patio covered by a tent with heaters ..it was lovely! Food and service were both amazing!
We love Teca! First time eating out. We sat on the porch and felt all Covid precautions were being taken. My husband had the filet and it was perfect and delicious! I had the Mama’s gravy which I always get. Unfortunately the pasta was very overcooked and mushy. I didn’t eat but two bites of the pasta. Once I realized how overcooked it was I passed on it. The meatball was to die for! Never had this happen before so felt it was just a busy night in the kitchen. We will be back.
We had the Crispy Eggplant Meatball for Appetizer, WOW. It was Incredible. The tomatos 🍅 and sauce was the best I've ever tasted. Cuodos to the Chef. Our drinks were made superbly. And our meals were also 5 star. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
thank you for a great night!
Very good meal, great service
The outdoor deck was lovely. The food was wonderful.
Our server(s) Charlie and Zoe were excellent!!!!!!!
The food, service, ambience, and overall experience are top notch.
Lovely, a bit dark on patio, but extenuating circumstances prevailed.
The food is always delicious and service great!! They make dining during COVID very easy and fun!!
It seemed as if reservations did not matter and the service was not they good.
Excellent outdoor dining set up. Another excellent meal and service at Teca!!
Did a good job managing the COVID restrictions and outside seating. Nice to get out again.
