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.

We had a wonderful time dining at Te! It was a great escape for a few hours. The food was great and the presentation was fun and entertaining. Take your date here, she will love it!!! Stay at the hotel so you can enjoy the great wine pairings.

This was truly a once in a life time experience. The food was a site for the eyes as it was for the taste. I came her the first time with my husband for Valentines we really enjoyed it. Two weeks later I brought my two best friends for their birthday dinner. They said the service was superb and everything the Chef made was delicious. TE' also made a small cake for each of them for their Birthday. Their attention to detail is excellent.

Fantastic experience. Had 5 course tasting menu - don't know how we would have made it through 9 courses. Incredible food, service and presentation. My only comment is that music needs to be adjusted on classical end with more of a mix. You will be here for 3-4 hours. Perfect place for anniversary or proposal, but I took my niece for a special night out. Restaurant is next door to Destinations Spa and you should make a day out of it!

Wow! What an evening. My wife's birthday consisted of a 7PM reservation and departure from the restaurant after 1AM. Ethan took his time in multiple conversations to explain how he makes his decisions as a sommelier. A truly great meal. Thank you very much.

I can't really put into words how magical the experience was for us. When I made the reservation, I thought it would be a neat dining experience...someplace we hadn't eaten before. From the doorman with white gloves and top hat to the Table Captain the staff and service was exemplary. We chose to do the 9 courses to get the full experience. Each course was beautifully presented and tasted just as beautiful! I can honestly say, this was by far the best dining experience we've ever had and we've been blessed enough to travel the world!!! I highly recommend it; you won't be disappointed. Blessings, Erin

We experienced the 9 course meal with wine pairing- what an incredible evening! From the moment we arrived and were escorted to our table, we were provided with an exceptionally high level of service. All the staff were very personable and professional. The courses were creative with great attention to detail. I hope to return to Té in the future. The only slight negative was that my partner and I were having a romantic evening away from the kids and we were seated by a large group next to us that became increasingly loud and intrusive as the night went on. The restaurant is very small, so if you are looking for more privacy on a special occasion, this might not be your best choice. Otherwise, an amazing meal at Té!

We had a wonderful dinner to celebrate our 7 years wedding anniversary at Te.
Upon arriving, Ethan greeted us, and gracefully offered my husband a jacket since that's required (and a 3 hour drive to back to NYC was out of the question;) ).
We have some dietary restrictions (I'm veggie, my husband is lactose intolerant) that the team accommodated while keeping the food superb in flavor and presentation.
We selected the tasting menu with wine paring and the wine selection and explanation on the food added greatly to our pleasure and education.
From the vegetarian menu, the gnocchi/ravioli was exceptional. Both my husband and I agree that the dessert was a celebration, literally a celebration!
The staff added an extra touch by sending us home with cake, biscotti and a copy of the menu which they prepared especially for the occasion.

TE is a Forbes and AAA Five Star restaurant. This is a place where you go to experience why restaurants receive five stars, and to be absolutely spoiled with a level of service you will not receive in a vast majority of restaurants. Seating for 18 so the service is top notch. The presentation and preparation of the food is exquisite. This is not a quick meal either. The five course presentation tools four hours so prep yourself for a culinary tour de force. Even though the portions are small, it somehow fills you up. We did not do the wine pairing but assume that is spectacular. Finally the Carnivale dessert prep and presentation is a real show stopper.

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.

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!
