Really nice evening, Benedict our server was very attentive and we followed his advice with all recommendations. We shared lots of different dishes. Great spot for meat lovers like myself.
Would definitely return and recommend to anyone.
Amazing - we went for the supper club - unlimited wine (wow) - steak was incredible and service was great. We were a mixed household group and was great to be able to sit outside under cover which was perfectly comfortable on a blustery wet Oct evening!
Great venue and lovely staff, food was outstanding!
Outstanding steak, relaxed, fun atmosphere. Will definitely come back
What a cracking restaurant and night out. It was my wife's birthday and I wanted to take her out for a lively dinner in London. We were not disappointed. We sat at the counter and really enjoyed the company of the chef's as well as a great food and wine. It was a lot of fun chatting to 'Irish' the butcher about the different cuts and cooking temperatures.
A touch expensive but we did order far too much food and two bottles of wine! I guess that would explain that..
Superb steaks, succulent and tender. At c£30 each - great value.
Lovely dinner and great value. Would be great if they had more green side options other than cabbage.
Our server Jemima was brilliant! I couldn’t fault her at all!
My Béarnaise sauce split, and got a small ramekin of french fries for 4£
what was mostly crumbled bits of potatoes.
However Steak was allright and had good flavour.
Food was fantastic. Although due to Covid closure time of 10.00pm we were told we werent allowed a desert at 9.15pm which was disappointing as it doesnt take long to dish out Ice Cream.
Staff are wonderful, drinks are delicious, food is DIVINE
Excellent cuisine, ambiance and service. Thank you!
Second visit to temper in Covent Garden and it won't be our last. Perfect place for a great meal. Friendly, fun and knowledgeable staff and a amazingly relaxed and warm atmosphere. We definitely recommend!
Great night! From the food, service and atmosphere it was all on point! Highly recommend.
Prime cut steaks were great but service throughout quite poor. We called a server over multiple times to ask to order, but each time they kept coming over and then just walking away to do something else and forgetting. Would have also been nice to be given a warning that the kitchen closes at 9pm. We don’t read online about when the kitchen closes and when you’re at a meal this isn’t something you rmb so please try to be the service industry that you are and think that this sort of warning is just what customers want.
Stick to the tacos and sides which were nice. I think there are better places for steak though.
The manager on shift whose name I unfortunately didn't get, was exceptional. One of the finest experiences of dining's I've ever had from the manager to the waiter. Kudos to the staff involved.
First time at Temper and trying their Supper Club offer on a Tuesday. Absolutely amazing quality all round with the food. The starters so so good and the steak heavenly and cooked perfectly. Along with the unlimited wine what more is needed??!!
Great food and great value on eat out to help out, but will definitely go back even without the offer
All the food was excellent from starters to grilled steaks. Nice atmosphere with music. We were let down by the service which didn’t let us know when the kitchen was closing and hence couldn’t order more food. We understand the new restrictions to leave by 10pm is hard to manage. We tried to order more around 9pm and were told that was too late and we already ordered a lot of food.
The food and drink were very good, as always. My first waiter may actually have been the manager. I'm not sure about that, but he was faultlessly welcoming and professional. Later on, I had a different waiter, who did get me what I asked for, but also seemed remarkably keen to get me to leave. I was in Temper from about 18:10 to just short of 19:30 and spent £83, which amounts to more than £1/minute. I think any customer deserves more respect than I received from that second waiter, but especially one who has already spent a serious amount of money on the premises.
Food was awesome as usual. Mini cheeseburgers and goat carnitas are super tasty and different.
Excellent steak, great service, and good atmosphere sat at the grill watching the chefs cook. Will definitely visit again.
Service was so great, and we loved our super tasty food.
Overall the restaurant is pretty good. Food portion is slightly smaller than we expected, but quality was great. The service can be a bit too busy due to EOTHO offer.
Food and service were both glorious. Also really recommend to any one gluten free as so many delicious options!! 10/10 will be devouring here again
Had a great meal celebrating my friends birthday at Temper. The staff was really good espically the male manager who was serving us! He is the BEST! So friendly and attentive. Great food and atmosphere would definitely reccomend for group meals.
A bit disappointed with the service here, food was okay but the waiters got our orders wrong so
Was nice enough for a date. Sat outside, service was a tiny bit slow however but didn’t mind.
Great evening , loved the atmosphere and food.
All the was staff amazing great customer service
Excellent steak (I had the T-bone) - very well seasoned.
Also had the truffle parmesan chips as a side, which were delicious.
Nice enough, but nothing special - especially given what you pay.
Very nice food. Well cooked steak. The nachos and the Halloumi cheese were really good.
Cocktails were not special.
Overall very pleasant experience and I would come back again.
Amazing atmosphere and service, couldn’t fault Temper! Can’t wait to return.
Good staff and food,environment and most of all the bill...
One of the best steak experiences I have had. We took advantage of the Monday steak club which made it incredible value with unlimited wine for 1.5hrs. Service was impeccable and I would highly recommend a counter seat where you can see the cooking in action and speak to the chefs who are very passionate about their craft.
One of the best meals I had as I just loved the different flavours coming through. We had the beef carnitas and shared a side of burrata and a side of cabbage. All of it absolutely delicious. Loved the lime dessert (margarita) too. Good atmosphere. Great restaurant. Will definately go back
Great food, amazing friendly staff and lovely atmosphere.
Really good service, accommodating staff. Food and drinks were all of great quality.
