Highly recommend. We forgot to make a booking but we got to have a table allocated for a set amount of time. Food was delicious and cocktails were great - we asked the bartender to make whatever he wanted and were pleasantly surprised each time.

I had the delight of dining with TEC for my birthday celebration this week. Everything from our greeting at the entrance to seating to the overall hospitality was fantastic. It's such a breath of fresh air to see people so passionate about hospitality and the level of attention given to the dining experience, really enjoyed the night.
