I enjoy visiting TeTe for watching football and especially the live music on Fridays. The food is tasty. Service is mixed. In a few cases I don't feel they are serving what is written on their menu. Sour mix is being added in the Pisco Sours and Margaritas when the menu just mentions fresh lime juice. When I asked for... More

Really liked this place when I visited a few months ago, not so much today. First wine selected was unavailable and the substitute that was brought was room temp (white wine) which was opened and poured without seeking diners' input. Entrees came before we had a chance to finish appetizers. I ordered the pescado a lo macho which came in... More

Tete had some good Peruvian food when it was located across the street on Raritan Avenue a few years ago. Sadly, the new expanded location has not resulted in better food but, to the contrary, has seen the quality deteriorating considerably: ingredients are no longer as original and some of the dishes no longer have original Peruvian taste.......

My experience at Tete was horrible. I arrived at 7:25pm, told the waitress that I was meeting some friends and I would like to grab a table. By 7:35 she started asking, "Are your friends really coming?" Five minutes later another prod "The owner is very upset because you're the only one here, and there are customers waiting." Mind you,...

Highland Park is so lucky to have such a great restaurant! The food is fresh and flavorful and the vibe is good. We're always surprised there is not a line at the door, as there should be. The lack of a properly working AC has likely been bad on business as its definitely kept us away. Wait staff is slow... More

We ordered takeout on-line using the restaurant's website. The order included the marisca soup which I had tasted previously and remembered that it was delicious. The website gave us a 8:05pm pickup time. When I arrived at 8:15 they had not even put in the order so I had to wait while it was being prepared. They did not even... More

This restaurant was highly recommended by many people reviews and friends but it was a total waste of time. I was not impressed with the service, server was not knowledgeable about the menu or even what to suggest. And the food was poorly tasty. I had better Peruvian dishes in other restaurants so unfortunately I won't recommend this place I... More

Tried it twice and found the food a bit boring both times. New, larger location adds the liquor license.

Well since they are suppose to be a super club let me start by saying there is no real service and in ordering grey goose there was something else in the bottle that was not grey goose. Totally disappointed I did ask the server at the back bar to pour some into a glass straight NOT grey goose. Won't go... More

There were only a handful of customers on the night that we dined here in a party of four with business to discuss. The waiter's attention was sufficient for that purpose and the Peruvian food a nice change from other area offerings. The empanadas came in chicken and beef varieties; both satisfying but not the highlight of our meal. The... More
