Nice food and amazing athmosphere. Fun place for the last dinner before tier3!!!
Really nice restaurant and would definitely go again. Good was delicious but some of the portion sizes were small for their value e.g. the tacos. The Ribeye steak was cooked really well and the chicken, lamb and cauliflower small plates were good too. The lighting was a bit dark but the restaurant in general had a cool vibe. Thanks for a lovely meal :)
Incredible first time at Temper. A truly special experience, would be great for a special occasion particularly. Incredible food, great ambience and impeccable service. Definitely returning!
Don’t bother. Can’t hear yourself think, dreadful music choice.
No steaks, instead the lamb was over smoked / dry as anything, very gamey. Sides were just downright lazy. And £91 for the pleasure.
What an amazing team from start to finish. A fantastic welcome at the door, interaction with floor staff and chefs throughout the meal and lots of friendly goodbyes. You can see they all love working there together.
The food...incredible as always. With the kitchen in the centre of the restaurant you get a great view of prep/cooking when sat at the counter. It's difficult not to keep ordering more when you see all of the dishes coming together.
Lovely seasonal cocktails and a top quality bottle of red.
Great atmosphere with music at just the right level.
See you in Tier 2!
We were sat downstairs and the atmosphere was very different from the lovely upstairs which was a shame. The service was quick but all the food came instantly and at once. Felt like they were trying to turn tables quickly to get more customers. Wouldn’t go back
Nice and worth the money. Went on a date got tipsy had fun
Tell your chef to stop yelling at everyone. All I could hear was him over the people I was with
I loved the food apart from one thing: we ordered medium rare rump steak and we got this steak that was basically fat and completely rare. So i was not satisfied with that at all
Food was beautiful, lamb, chicken, beef nachos, even the chips were gorgeous. Lovely atmosphere in there and the service was very good. Will be going back after Christmas!
excellent food and well paced service, certainly would recommend to friends and family.
Delicious steak, cabbage huge surprise. Cocktails were super nice!!
Great food, fabulous service and amazing cocktails. Sex and violets in particular...
We sat outside in the courtyard and they kept us warm with heaters and blankets
Food lovely. Had no larger but won’t complain as food was lovely and staff mega friendly. Would go back. Staff impressive how hard they worked all evening and cleaned the kitchen really well at end of the night. We had front row seats to watch it all. Good work team.
Amazing food but it all came WAY too quickly. We had 3 courses and were in and out in under an hour. Bit of a shame as it would have been nice to have a break between courses rather than everything arriving as and when it was ready.
Great food and excellent customer service. Love this place.
Lovely food, unusual and a great ambiance. We sat at the counter and could watch the chef grill meat live. Can’t wait to be back!
We had a fantastic meal at Temple Covent Garden. All the dishes were delicious. It was supposed to be our wedding day that day (sadly got postponed due to covid) and Benedict gave us complimentary champagne and desserts to cheer us up! Great service- will definitely be coming back!
The staff were amazing, so tentative and friendly. Atmosphere was great, good music a really lovely buzz about the place.
Food was good, although some of the 'small' plates are a little pricey for what you get. Will defo go back and try the steaks next time!
Too expensive for the little portions they serve. You'll end up hungry unless you are willing to spend double of what you normally would.
Bad tasteless food unfortunately. Can't complain about the service.
Amazing steak, melted in my mouth would definitely come back
Nothing to complain about. One of the best steak restaurants me and my husband have been to in a long time. Now making it our regular. Happy staff, good atmosphere. Love the open kitchen of watching the chef. A must go to in london :)
Beautiful location to enjoy some extraordinary food. Great fun and look forward to going back.
Amazing - as always!
We enjoyed a lunch at Temper. The staff were excellent and the food was very good.
Excellent service, excellent food and cocktails, excellent atmosphere. If you get the offer to sit in front of the oven definitely take it. On the pricier side but totally worth it for the quality of everything.
My issue is with the cleanliness of the place, my cutlery and glass was not clean and I asked for another one. They bought me new ones but that was dirty too. It took 3 tries until they could get it right. It’s not acceptable.
Food is good but the cleanliness ruin my experience.
We went for Supper Club and the deal is amazing - £29 for steak, fries and unlimited wine. And even better, it was £19 with the Eat Out To Help Out discount. There was a great vibe in the restaurant and we loved being able to watch the chef's cook in the open kitchen. Can't wait to go back.
Service was awful - do not order beef brisket Carnita was dry and tasteless.
My new favourite restaurant in London! Can’t wait to come back! Everything was incredible.
Amazing service & delicious food, would definitely recommend
Clearly not managing the service, staff was running around. Guacamole was the worst I’ve ever had - literally pieces of avocado with no seasoning, salt, or any additions to it. Ribs were good.
Had been to Temper Soho before twice and couldn’t want to come here. The food and wine was excellent as expected. However the night was somewhat spoiled by the food taking nearly an hour and a half to arrive. The Government restrictions at 10pm, our food didn’t arrive till 9:35!! It wasn’t even that busy. 2 minutes later, our waiter told us that the kitchen was closing in 15 minutes and would we like to see the dessert menu - just after we’re starting to eat our main course! Given the options available for great dinners in the West End, this was a massive disappointment. 🙁
Brilliant restaurant! Now one of my favourites. Servers are brilliant as well! Really knowledgeable and friendly.
Good value for the monies
Service was quite slow - however staff continued to be very polite. I was on my own and didn’t expect perfect service because they where very busy. Food was fantastic despite maybe a little overpriced for the portion size.
Overall would recommend to anyone that likes meat
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!
