They either want to vet you in a less formal setting or give you an offer in a setting where you’re more likely to accept on the spot

This is correct.

You're likely the only or one of 2 candidates. I wouldn't expect an offer at dinner, but soon thereafter unless they go with the other person. I doubt there are more than 2 candidates (though my experience is in house).

I’ve done this in an interview process with a midsize tight knit firm after 3 other interviews. Dinner with my spouse and 3 partners and their spouses. I received an offer a few days later.

It’s pretty old school, but yeah offer likely coming in soon. Firms used to always take you out to lunch or dinner to either get to know you or court you.

Make sure you brush up on your table manners. They might also want to see if you are socially presentable to clients.

This ^^. Also, think about how you will respond if they do offer at dinner, especially if salary is mentioned and it isn’t what you were hoping for but you want the job.

If a recruiter asks me if I’ve spoken to another recruiter at the company, is it okay if I lie and say no? Or should I just be honest and say yes? I’ve heard of instances where candidates have been ghosted if they say they’ve been in contact with another recruiter. In my case, the recruiter I was in contact with messaged me on LinkedIn and never followed up after our 5 minute phone conversation. I really want this job so I don’t want to mess anything up before getting an interview.

If someone can verify this? I have seen so many posts here and on Quora too, that TCS release the salary structure breakup after the interview rounds, but do not send the offer letter, even after acceptance of salary. The HR person won't deny you on the face, but keep on delaying that offer letter release would take time. Is this true? Do a reputed company like TCS make such fake promises or raise false hopes in candidates?
