Good food. The meat is amazing. Service was good. Would recommend temper
First time at temper and absolutely enjoyed it. Waiter (Rey) was great, explained all the dishes and gave food recommendations. All the food was brilliant. Definitely going back!
Food is very overpriced and portions were very small. Best food item was the pork bites which were appetisers. Steak was average, carnitas and tacos were good. Cocktails were okay and for some reason were only filled half the glass.
Ambience of the place is poor, cleared out very early (was a Wednesday to be fair) and full of suits (is in the city to be fair).
Heard better things about the Soho Temper so would give this a miss and grab a tube to Holborn from Bank to go there!
Date Night with my husband and it was perfect! Excellent atmosphere, great food and good service! We sat at the bar, so close to all the action, thoroughly recommend.
Top notch steak, and happy hour when we arrived so great value wine. Good value for quality and great atmosphere
Excellent as usual - standards never drop. Steak is good and tacos make for an excellent starter
Great steaks, a good wine list and relaxed, efficient service.
Excellent food and lovely staff. Really nice atmosphere and the music was really good too
Food was good.. when it turned up. Didn’t bring a starter that was ordered, and same with the mains.. 4 out of 5 were brought to the table, the other was forgotten - therefore had to wait to be cooked from the start.
Been there a few times so far. The food is great, ambiance is excellent and the service is always very friendly. It dors get busy around 7pm, but tables are well spaced, which means that you can enjoy dinner without feeling squeezed.
food was unbelievably good. Will definitely plan a return visit. The staff were friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. I would say this is the best restaurant I’ve been in for many years. Go there!
Excellent service. Very good food. Sensible value. Will return.
100% perfect steaks and excellent menu selection. We had a great time. Great place if you want to enjoy a good conversation with friends since it wasn't noisy at all, just background music and whoever picked it has very good taste! Deserts maybe not 100% their strength, but we enjoyed them a lot nonetheless!
Fantastic food, service & ambience!
Special shout out to the chef, absolutely makes the place great as it is! Get this man a bucketbomb!
Excellent as always. Tacos and steak. Sit by the bar and occasionally the chef shares an extra treat.
I’ve eaten at this restaurant before and have had good experiences. But this time both the beef and goat carnitas were totally undercooked, to the point they weren’t really edible.
seems unncessary to have the chef loudly banging meat in the middle of service. also waiter was new and didnt know the menu and his english language skills were sub-par, despite him being very nice. the noise from the kitchen didnt help the server.
This is a must experience if you like great food being served to you by warm, friendly and knowledgeable people. We love Temper City and will keep returning.
Still with one of the best selections of martinis in London, Temper is perfect for a long, boozy session with friends. Comfortable and still with a nice low-key buzziness even on a weekday afternoon, the only thing that spoilt the visit was the tartare-style burger. Pink is one thing but raw is another and it made an otherwise tasty burger taste odd. Also a shame that their fantastically quirky ‘Mr Faulty’ cocktail isn’t served any more - particularly when it is still on the drinks menu. Would still recommend though, even with the odd misstep this time.
Excellent meal. Creative menu, tasty food, good service. Loved it, especially the soft shell crab tacos
Service wasn't great and then they had the audacity to put on service charge - something we didn't realise until we had left. Our lunch took 50 minutes to come out, which isn't ideal when most people only have an hour for lunch. We asked several waiters when our food was coming and they all said in a few minutes (over the course of 20 minutes). Having to rush down our food completely spoilt the experience, in my opinion.
I ate here just two weeks ago and it was really good. We all ordered fish and were then told there wasn’t any. The dish I had before was awesome so we all ordered that... this time round it was rubbish. My client had hardly any meat on his beef dish...a waste of time. Won’t be returning.
Fabulous rib eye as ever!
Satisfactory lunch with great service and quality food
I'd been wanting to visit Temper for a while and I wasn't disappointed. It's a large space dominated by the charcoal grill and prep area in the middle. Some of the cuts of meat are on display. Service is a bit hit and miss.
You need to be very hungry to eat much off the main menu as the cuts are huge. I plumped for the cheapest option which was the lamb chop at £18. It was probably the nicest I've ever had. My friend had the ribs, which were also reported as excellent.
The wine list isn't cheap and again we chose the "value" option - the house Tempranillo. Judging by the fact it came in an unmarked bottle I'm guessing they buy this buy the vat and it was drinkable, if a bit bland.
Overall, the quality of the food wins out and I'd definitely come again.
Get the smoked beef - delicious. They make a great cocktail as well - bar has a nice ambience
Great evening at Temper. The service was impeccable and the waiter was knowledgable and helped us choose what to order, as we didn’t know what to choose (all looked great!)
The food was amazing, every bite was delicious (especially the pork tacos and the pork ribs!)
We sat at the bar and the staff behind the kitchen were helpful and fun and the happy hour 5-7:30pm meant that 2 starters, 2 meat mains, 2 sides, 3 G&T’s and a Prosecco with service charge was just over £80!
I am already planning my next visit!
Tasty and delicious food combined with quality wine and service made this lunchtime visit very worthwhile and enjoyable!
Really friendly staff, very nice steak and cocktails included in the limitless brunch
Couple of large noisy tables but to be expected
Michelle serviced us and she was brilliant. Food was amazing. We came in for Brunch and had the bottomless cocktails and Porterhouse steak, followed by the cookie with caramel. Having been to Temper City I expected it to be a high standard and it did not disappoint. My favourite of the 3 Temper restaurants.
Food is over seasoned
I'm used to this in the US but not here
I came here on Friday with a friend and it was lovely. The food was really good, we shared nachos to start were okay. The main was the best part, we shared a rib eye steak, crispy fried chicken with tomato salsa and chips. the food was really really yummm. We also had a bottle of prosecco too which went down very well.
Not as excellent as previous visits, bass civiche not a hit. No lamb at all and other items not available as well.
Great food, would definitely recommend the smaller plates (tacos, nachos, tostadas) over the main meals. Good service and an impressive venue - huge side of ages beef on show when arriving was very cool!
Service was impeccable - great wine and food. Pork Rib, smoked beef rib and the amazing cabbage salad. 👌
The server Anna is exceptional. Very detailed about food and very good suggestions. Great service all round and very impressive ! 😀
Hi, Thank you for your review. We will pass your wonderful feedback on to Ana, she is a credit to our team Many Thanks Dave
I believe Temper Soho is better. I liked the last time that we ate at City when the theme was slightly indian. This time the Cocktails were not as good as the same cocktail from Soho. We waited a long time for anyone to take our order and in Soho where the helping staff advised us correctly that we had over ordered and might like to take one main out and replace with greens (lovely). This time there was too much with the fish on top of the platter for 3 and 4 starters.... no greens.
Perfect chilled out brunch/lunch in the Centre of the city. Gorgeous food, plus really good versatile options for everyone in terms of drinks - whether you want bottomless cocktails, a few glasses of bubbly (half price champagne!) or just to enjoy the food. So many places offer ‘bottomless brunch’ that focuses purely on the booze option, but if you love your food and appreciate steak, this is the option for you. Excellent service, laid back atmosphere, would definitely come again.
Hi VixLeyton, Many thanks for the great review, we are glad you enjoyed your visit on Saturday. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Many Thanks Dave
Had a great time and enjoyed the amazing steak and eggs brunch which is great value for money. Staff were amazing and even offered us a tour of the open kitchen and grills where the food is prepared. Highly recommended and I will be back
Hi JideO, Thank you for your review. We love to show off our smokers in the rear kitchen and it is always a pleasure for us to entertain our guests and educate them in everything we do. We can't wait for you to come back. Have a great day. Many Thanks Dave
Great venue. You can see the food cooked in the bbq in the restaurant.
Service was very good and the selection of starters was good quality.
Hey, Thanks for the review. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Many Thanks Dave
