Despite having outstanding ratings from respected reviewers such as Forbes Travel Wine Spectator, TE gets surprisingly little local press. We decided to try TE for a special birthday celebration. We were greeted by name at the entrance, coats were checked, and we were escorted to our table. We were assisted in seating by the wait staff, who was pleasant and... More

I had the 5 course with 7 other friends that I bought at a charity auction for the American Cancer Society. I had never been to Te. What an experience! The food was phenomenal. The roots,tops and flowers salad was terrific. I had to make sure I ate slowly to savor it. It was that good and I'm not really... More

We had dinner here and were underwhelmed. We opted for the shorter of Te's two tasting menus (I believe it was 6 courses). We thought the food was just okay. There were several additional small courses (like amuse bouche) that were served between regular courses in our tasting menu. Everything was served with great ceremony and rapturous descriptions. There were... More

My boyfriend and I went to Te for my birthday. Our reservations were for 8PM on a Saturday evening. They great you at the door and escort you to your table. There were only a few tables in the room, three 2 tops, and three 4+ tops. The chairs are lovely armchairs and they help seat you. There are stools... More

Very nice restaurant in the somewhat unlikely surroundings of Leola Village PA. Excellent service, and a wonderful degustation menu with wine pairings. Really very tasty and creative cooking. Probably just a notch shy of really top class, but should absolutely be applauded for all their efforts. Great place.

Our dinner was first class and delicious. Very fancy restaurant and service was amazing. We did the chef choice menu with the wine flights. Everything was incredible.

If you ever wondered what fine dining is, this is it. If you ever wanted to be treated like royalty for just a few hours, this is it. Food was inventive and delicious, service impeccable. This is a presentation along with dinner, so make this your only plans for the evening.

What a wonderful evening my husband and I had dining at TE. The experience exceeded our expectations. The service, food and wine were exceptional, along with the beautifully decorated, attention-to-detail dining room. The staff was attentive but not overly, and were extremely knowledgeable. They answered all of our questions, in a polite and friendly manner. The restaurant is located at... More

TÉ was definitely a fun dining experience. The restaurant is lovely. The wait staff friendly. The presentation along with synchronized serving was like a performance. We had personalized menus. Our name was spelled incorrectly and they reprinted one correctly which was a souvenir to take home. It is obvious that the chef made a huge effort to pair wonderful seasonings... More

One of the finest restaurants in the country! It is fine dining at its best and in the heart of Amish country no less. If you want to experience a one-of-a-kind evening TE' is the place. From the moment Tim and Amanda greeted us we knew we were in for a real treat. The layout of the dining room lent... More

Description
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, making TE 1 of 55 restaurants in the world to receive this award. 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.
