Seating was prompt, we wereSeating was prompt, we were actually there early and only waited about 10 minutes
The food was consistantly good across the board (as it usually is) but the services was REALLY lacking and brought the whole experience down.
Slow, unattentive, the salads came out before the apps... they seemed generally disorganized that night5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTEMPO was GREATI would recommend Tempo - the food is very good, atmosphere is lively and service was impeccable. It was a little pricey, but it is so good, it might not deter you!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat local placeThere is a great variety of choices on the menue with a unique slant on preparation. Food is very good with amble portions. Great service.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSooo loud. But the food wasSooo loud. But the food was amazing. Service was efficient, professional. Not a huge amount of extra care, but thoughtful, overall. We were there as it was emptying out, still eating our dinner but annoyed at the shouts from the bar. There were a few games on TV and some guys were yelling through the windows to friends out on the street. That should have been stopped immediately but it went on for a bit. Our drinks were mild, not sure if the bar goes light on table orders. Still, the food is the thing here-- as is the vibe. Too bad it gets so very loud. Maybe there could be some acoustical improvements to deaden the reverb through the restaurant?4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is excellent and creative.Food is excellent and creative. Always fresh and very enjoyable.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been going to TempoWe have been going to Tempo off and on for many years. Every time has been a dining delight with wonderful fresh ingredients cooked creatively and to perfection. The wait staff is professional and extremely knowledgeable about the food and drink. In fact there are two waiters who have been there since our first visit. The consistency over the years is what makes us think of Tempo when the urge to go out to eat hits. It's advisable to make a reservation. Last time we went on a Tuesday evening at 7:30 and our reserved table was the only one empty.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOn Par with Boston's BestGREAT Food and unique menu! On par with our favorite restaurants in downtown Boston.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent night out.As you walk in you will notice how nice the whole place looked. We were meeting friends there for dinner and we were the first to arrive. We were seated and waited for our friends to arrive. The waitress was very attentive but not intrusive. She was there any time we need something. I was impressed by the beer list. It had some miro beers that I have never heard of. We all decided to split a couple of appetizers. The calimari was excellent. The batter on it was light. People at the table who do not like calimari tasted it and loved it. We also had the steak and cheese appetizer. everyone raved about the sauce it was served with. Everyone love their dinners. I just wished they had served some rolls with the meal. Definiely will go back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA very pleasant surprise.My wife and I decided to go out and eat at the very last minute, and after finding no open tables elsewhere, we were very pleased to be accommodated at Tempo on-line. And what a very pleasant surprise it was. The service was fast and efficient; the food was very good; the drinks list was extensive and the price was most reasonable. We had a lovely time and would definitely recommend Tempo to all our friends.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Find!!!Quick find while in town.
