Special occasion restaurants should be 1) intimate 2) upscale 3) excellent quality in terms of food, service and atmosphere. Temper Grill fits all three requirements.

A great evening of small plate appetizers complimented with a glass of wine. The staff was very friendly, helpful with menu and drink selections and prompt on providing service to our table. I would love to try this again for dinner.

We were pleased when we walked in at the eclectic decor and the over padded cushioned Boths. Reminded us of being in the middle east. The food was awesome. Everything we tried was very tasty. The wine and beer list are very exciting and extensive. We'll be back. Oh... and are server was very friendly and personable.

I really like the Tapas style. That is, separate appetizer-like plates that can be shared. The food was of good quality and taste. However, I did not think it lived up to the hype of a certain local radio station. The food was good but not outstanding IMO. And outstanding is what I was looking/hoping for. I will say that the chocolate truffles were excellent and did live up to the hype.

For my reservation on Open Table I requested a booth explaining that my 2 friends were celebrating birthdays so we had gifts and wanted the comfort and extra space of one of their large booths. They were not busy when we arrived yet we were told we couldn't have a booth, as they "save" them for larger groups (which by the way I have sat with 5 others in a booth and it was very crowded and uncomfortable). Of the 3 booths only 2 were used all evening, so the 3 of us could have been seated in one. This was Disappointment #1. The service was fair. As they had many empty tables all evening, the service should have been better...Disappointment #2. The food took quiet a while to start coming out, which was odd because they weren't that busy. Some of the food we wanted to enjoy together and we mentioned this to our server. Generally the dishes stream in and overlap, but we had 1 dish delivered and then nothing for quite some time, then all of a sudden several were delivered at the same time and finally our last dish came out much later after most everything else was consumed...Disappointment #3. My friends paid with credit cards, and I paid with cash. Imagine my surprise when no money/change was returned. The server kept the $7 change assuming it was the tip from my share...Disappointment #4. And finally the overall experience just isn't what it used to be. The prices have increased, yet the portions are smaller. The time spent there just isn't that special anymore. We have heard more and more unfavorable reviews about Temper Grille and sadly my friends and I have been disappointed the last 2 times we were there. Perhaps the owner/chef needs to review his own restaurant and look around to see all of the new homegrown eateries that are popping up getting attention. We have been fans of TG since it opened, but it needs to step up it's game plan to stay competitive and well-liked. Otherwise people will find new places to spend their valuable time and money.
