My girlfriend and I sat at the bar and enjoyed the chicken chili, ahi tuna, eddamme, and steak chimi. The ahi tuna is the best in town. For desert, the choc truffles are mouth watering. The dining area is limited but the service and food are outstanding!! We will definitely be going back!

I say late-night because in our area 9:30 or 10 PM IS late! Excellent salmon preparation today (Chef's inspiration)! As always the place to go for a great meal. Excellent service, very friendly!

Always great food
This is the first time I have not been thrilled with this restaurant. Usually the plan things better. We were still eating our respective soups and salads when they served us our spinach artichoke dip and our steak bites. They normally time things better as we felt very rushed and both dishes cooled before we could fully enjoy them.

We'll be back!
This was our first time at Temper Grille, and we'll be back. There is so much variety on the menu that we'll have to visit quite a few times to try all of the items that sound intriguing. The steak bites and chocolate truffles were fabulous! The asparagus, a favorite veggie for my husband, but not for the rest of the family, would have been a real treat if it had not been over-peppered. That said, we will give them another try. Our server was very helpful in showing us the ropes, and appropriately attentive.

If tapas is your thing, Temper Grille is your place. The atmosphere is fantastic and the food is beyond compare. The steak chimis are not to be missed!

We love to bring new people to experience temper grill, love the flavors. Tapas is my favorite way to dine!

Good service, great food.
Good service, great food. Tapas style to degree requires that those dining enjoy similar tastes and fortunately my wife and I do.

Its my favorite restaurant. Its actually fast dining too, even when we try to take our time, we are in & out in an hour.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything about Temper Grille was outstanding. They open at 5PM for dinner. They serve their dishes as they become ready & not as a meal, which was unique. First came 'smashed' potatoes - yum. Next were the U10 scallops - delicious. Then the fresh green beans with onion & garlic - fantastic. They were followed by their speciality dish, mac & cheese - OMG :) Last but not least was the chicken marsala - rich & filling. Dessert was a chocolate truffle with a fresh strawberry & raspberry sauce - the perfect way to top off a perfect meal.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful as always
Temper Grille never disappoints. The only "complaint" I have is that the food is so unbelievable that I have favorites I can't imagine not having every time I go, so I rarely branch out and try new things. I have gone to top notch tapas restaurants in Grand Rapids and Chicago, and I like Temper Grille better. The Michiana area is very lucky to have such a fine restaurant.

Brandi is a star
We are regulars at Temper Grill and have been since inception. If you have not tried it yet put it on your to do list ASAP! Food and service are excellent and we would like to give special mention to Brandi who is always of good counsel both for dishes and wines, and the most pleasant person to boot!

The Temper Grille is one of
The Temper Grille is one of our favorites. With that said, Saturday night was the best we have ever had. The foods was amazing and the service was perfect! The mussels and lamb pops were fantastic! This night will be hard to beat but we are willing to try.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were greeted by a very friendly hostess and it just got better from there. Our server was very friendly and gave us several suggestions for food choices. Everything we ordered was very good and perfectly cooked. We were there with another couple and we were never rushed. This was our first time here and we will be back the next time we are in town.

A Great Little Place
Temper Grille is a local restaurant/bar serving beer, wine and tapas-style food. I have eaten at Temper many, many times and highly recommend it! The service is spot-on, and the food is wonderful -- especially the hand made truffles! Tuesdays, they have 1/2 off on bottles of wine, so it is a great time to get together with some friends, enjoy some great food and share a bottle (or 3) of wine!
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have dined there 4-5 times
We have dined there 4-5 times and each time we try something new and eat some we enjoyed from before. Tapas works well for my wife and I as we have similar likes and dislikes with food.

This is the place my husband
This is the place my husband and I want to go to when we have a date night. I am always impressed with the food and the service. It hasn't disappointed me once.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I brought my wife to this restaurant for her birthday this week and the food was outstanding! Turns out it was a great choice as she had never been to this place before but she loved it! We specifically liked the sequenced approach to bringing the different food choices as we requested. Great opportunity for everyone to share each others food on the table (without having to ask!).
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a pleasure!
Keep this restaurant at the top of your list, it is well worth it! Chef Sean (the owner) was willing to rustle up an impromptu vegan dish for one of the guests. Kudos!
8/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
Love this place so much, I wish they had a frequent diner card.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is our third visit to this wonderful restaurant. Food is always good and servers are friendly and prompt. I think business would be expanding if they had the space. Cozy though and a very enjoyable experience.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food! But not dessert!
My family planned a family birthday at Temper and were quite pleased overall. As great as the dinner was, the dessert was opposite. Our picky eater ordered one of the chicken dishes and was disappointed when there was none available. The Mac and cheese was very good as well as the great lamb pops and sea bass. Chopped salad was excellent. The potato and onion dish was just all right. After sharing a bottle of wine and a couple of other wonderful dishes, we were looking forward to finish off the meal with amazing desserts but were so disappointed. The truffle was all right but the angel food, strawberries and whipped cream combination was unbelievably blah. One bite and it almost ruined the dinner.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Duck bites & Portabello Stack
Duck bites & Portabello Stack were excellent and highly recommended as 'must'. Baked Brie was very good but the server forgot to put that order in when we initially ordered. Lobster mac & cheese was good but not a 'must have' because it needed some seasoning. Bacon plate was very good. We had Salmon special dish as well that was very good. The scallops were well cooked and seasoned just right. The Crabby cakes were good, though I expected them to have a crispy exterior. The crab flavor was very mild and I felt it needed 'something' to bring i out some more. The Veggies (asparagus on that day) were excellent. Finally ordered the chocolate truffles for dessert which were good. The server comp'd our dessert due to the Baked Brie order.

We have dined at the Temper
We have dined at the Temper Grille many times and it is always a great experience. The Canadian Black Mussels are a must.

This is our favorite restaurant
This is our favorite restaurant when we travel to South Bend!. Everything is wonderful - the food, the staff. Do yourself a favor and have dinner at Temper Grill.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place!
This was our second time dining at Temper Grille. We love this place. It has amazing food and great service. Perfect for small groups or just one on one. Highly recommend.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was fantastic, from wait staff to food, to the decor.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sean always rises to the challenge
Kudos to Sean who at nine PM is willing to put together a vegan dish with only ten minutes lead time to acommodate one of the diners! Always a great choice with a friendly team that makes you feel at home!
9/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
You will not be disappointed! Everything from the staff to the food is top notch! This is by far my favorite restaurant in the area. My favorite items to get are the steak bites, spinach & artichoke dip, smashed red skin potatoes, mac & cheese, and you MUST get the truffles for dessert.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have found this to be a gem in the South Bend area. Long time residents of the area, we normally have to go to Chicago to find the type of quality food we had here. We had a wine called the Troublemaker which was a real treat . We usually try something new each time and we always get the baked brie. Manager was accomodating when we were running late.
Love this place.

Tapas in Mishawaka
Always excellent food, wine and service. Because of the small size, the noise level can be adversely affected by only a few patrons. This restaurant is one of a kind for the South Bend area and reservations are recommended due to its small size.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
My favorite restaurant by far!
I love food, especially quality food! I have eaten at Temper many times and have never been disappointed. The food is absolutely amazing.
9/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Kudos to the chef who rustled up a great vegan dinner for one of our guests at the last minute at past 9 PM! Great service, great food. I keep Temper at the top of my list.
9/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
A Dining Delight
My wife and I have been to Temper Grille several times and each time we go we love it. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is relaxed, the staff is professional and the location is close. I would recommend this for a great date night.

Perfect night for eating outdoors.
Perfect night for eating outdoors.
Very attentive waitress.
Steak bites were not cooked to our liking. These were redone and problem promptly corrected.
Very tasty. Chocolate truffles are always exquisite.

Never dissatisfied !
I have never had a bad meal here! Food is unlike any other in the area .. Fabulous every time ! Great excuse to leave the kids at home and have a romantic date night ( or girls night :)

Ensky Temper Grill
It is hard enough to find a restaurant around here that will accept you after 9:00 PM, let alone a great place that will seat you till 11 PM on week days and 12 on Saturdays! Incredibly helpful wait and kitchen staff. Kudos to all. Thanks Sean.

A Double Date Gone Great
My wife and I suggested to some friends that we have dinner at the Temper Grille. It was the first time for him but not for her. Let's just say he was not expecting us to order Mac & Cheese. He changed his tune once he had some. The Temper Grille has yet to let us down with an amazing experience.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is great and service is awesome! Ever items comes out as you order and the items taste great. It is easy to see a lot of items are bulk made prior and reheated when needed but still tastes amazing! They were out if a lot if items which was upsetting but we still found plenty on the menu to enjoy a great night. We go 4-6 times a year and recommend this place to all out friends!
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was our first time to dine in at the restaurant. The ambiance was warm and welcoming, although they could use a second door to prevent cold air coming in every time a customer enters the room. The food was really good although a little pricey. Overall it was a great experience for us, a great place to have a little date with my husband.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Could be upscale
We have been at Temper several times. I am always surprised that for such a nice restaurant, the appearance of the wait staff is like bar workers. The staff wear tee shirts and some are loud. However the look of the restaurant is more like a nicer restaurant. Although we have received decent service, in the past, the waitresses seemed to be in a hurry, too big of a hurry to actually listen. This more recent visit, at first the waitress didn't seem that friendly, but she turned out to be a very good waitress.
The duck potatoes came out burned and I mentioned it to the waitress. She was gracious and returned with perfectly cooked dish. The Mac and cheese and duck bites along with the chopped salad were very good.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Impressed to say the least
Not what I would expect from this area. Temper Grill would hold its own anywhere in any "foodie city" in the US. Sean is an excellent host, the food is imaginative and delicious and the wine and beer lists are unreal. I can't wait to go back.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We made a last minute reservation this Saturday at 10 PM and were the only clients in the restaurant when we walked in but we were greeted with a smile and had an excellent experience as if it was only 8 PM! Kudos and keep up the great job!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Definitely worth a try! Very Yummy!
I had heard a lot about Temper Grille from several people, and everyone said it was good. We tried the Lobster Bites, Bacon Bites, Spinach Dip, Lobster Mac and Cheese, and Duck Fat Fried Potatoes. That was more than enough food for 2 people! We got the Chocolate Truffles to go because we were too stuffed to eat them there. Everything was absolutely delicious! There were a couple negatives- if you want a non-alcoholic drink, you are very limited, also there is no foyer so when the door opens you can get a blast of cold air. None of these issues were enough to ruin the experience. Try it at least once, you won't be disappointed! Overall, it was a fun and tasty experience.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
First Impressions...a gem!
We looked forward to our first Temper Grille visit based on radio ads and personal referrals. The actual dinner exceeded expectations. Being new to Tapas dinning style, we had no way to know how fun this would be. And the food was simply marvelous. If you go, the Lobster Mac and Cheese will absolutely surprise you. We’ll be back.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
The best in Granger
As always a top notch experience. Food and service are excellent and we truly appreciate their rather late hours for this area. Kudos
