Bartenders are outstanding!!
Waitperson was a screen writer and terrifically knowledgeable about the menu, knew the subtleties of wine and beer and artfully listened to what we wanted and interpreted the menu in light of our wishes. If her writing is as good as her wait staffing, we'll be seeing a lot of her!
Great place - the beets and brussel sprouts are fantastic. The home-made fettuccine was first-rate. Very happy to have found this gem.
The Temple Bar is a very well-run restaurant, casual with excellent service and very good food. It is a place to go for a very good dining experience without any stuffiness. It is consistent and reliable, too.
Amazing food and cool restaurant !!
Great Location! Food was okay. Some better advise from our server might have helped (i.e., Server said salmon is served between medium and medium-rare, but a quarter of mine was very rare/raw).
Great variety on the menu and exciting beer lift.
Usually better than this last visit...service was not good and food quality low. Very noisy. Sorry because it was 0ne )f our regular haunts.
This was our first time at Temple Bar, we had made a reservation but were early and they sat us right away. We were seated near the door and it was cold but manageable. Our server took a while to come and take our drink order. The restaurant was not super busy so we were surprised it took him so long. We ordered appetizers and entrees. Our food came out quickly and was amazing. We had a hard time flagging down our server and he seemed to keep disappearing. We decided to go elsewhere for after dinner drinks and dessert because we didn’t want to wait around for our server to come and take our order. We will probably be back because we loved the food but would not want the same server again
Food and service was impeccable. I loved the Raviolo!
WE enjoyed our dinner. The food was all good, although if you get the pumpkin ravioli small plate. you get one ravioli, which was a bit disappointing. I had a pizza, and I thought the crust was perhaps a tad overcooked. The pork buns were good, as was the calimari. We didn't see any dessert choices that were appealing, so we did not have dessert.
We all had different dishes, and all four of us were delighted with our dinners, including three main courses , and two of the small plates. Delicious! Wonderful wine selection. My only request would be to keep the music level far lower, as it was too noisy for good conversation for four.
Great atmosphere. Good food and drinks. Bar was slow and waitress never brought our dessert, just the check. Overall would go back but won't sit in the high tops section again, much better at a table.
Secpnd visoit to Temple Bar. As pleased this time as our first because of friendly greeting, informative wait staff, good service, very good food plated and served well and the overall ambiance of the restaurant. We will be back!
What a wonderful way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Both myself and my date were delighted with our meals and drinks
Had a very nice dinner. Attentive service, fine food. Portions just right.
First time visit, and really enjoyed it. Great food and drink, vibrant atmosphere, friendly people working there, easy parking. Highly recommend.
The good: The food was tasty, parking was easy. Service was good. Easy to get a reservation despite being last minute for Saturday night. Nice atmosphere. The less good: Lighting was too dim - it was hard to read the menu without a flashlight. Cost of a bottle of wine was higher than it ought to have been but the wine was good. It was a bit on the loud side, a problem for those of us who are beginning to have hearing problems. Overall: It was a good all around compromise with many positive points.
Great spot to meet friends and share some delicious food and cocktails. The staff and kitchen were very accommodating for my gluten allergy - they even used a separate frier for the (rice flour battered) calamari! YUM! They also prepared several small plates to be gluten free for our table to share. Everything was very good - I just found the majority of the main courses to be a bit pricey for an everyday dinner. It would be a great date spot.
Went there for brunch, coffee was great and refiled were prompt. Bloody marry was good but not exceptional. Food was good, they have the basics but with a trendy twist. Price was very reasonable. Would recommend for get togethers with friends and family. Not a place to go if you are looking for a fancy or gorment food. But a great place to go for a good meal.
Very positive all around except kitchen was backed up and we waited for food way too long. Very responsive when noted. Very good restaurant with excellent food and pleasant staff
Good drinks, amazing service! Ordered the cheese plate, which was somewhat underwhelming. Good music, not too loud. Great spot for a date.
The chocolate pudding is TO DIE FOR
Very family friendly despite bar and sophisticated ambience.
The atmosphere is upscale but comfortable, the menu is interesting and the service is great. The calamari appetizer is really good! I've been going here for years and I like that they change it up but keep it consistently good.
As a regular customer, I love Temple Bar. Steak Frites and Caesar Salad are great!
My partner and I came here for our anniversary and it was one of the best dates we've been on. Great food and drinks, excellent service, a cozy atmosphere. We loved it, and will absolutely be back.
The food was fantastic and the Old Fashioned cocktail was one of the best I've had. I hosted a client for dinner here after an all-day meeting and it was perfect - not too stuffy and not too informal. I'd highly recommend.
Temple was a nice surprise. We wanted something easy and good for dinner and this worked great.
Bronzini was top notch as were warm beets appetizer and pork main course.
While I enjoyed the overall experience the menu choices are somewhat limited and a bit eccentric ...
Always a MUST when we visit Boston & Cambridge... great food and fantastic environment for all
The service was terrific. Lucy was attentive, incredibly knowledgeable, and brought out the ice cream chef when she learned that we were really interested in how they make it. Many thanks for making us feel so welcome, Lucy. Food was exceptional!
It was surprisingly good and a very pleasant experience all round.
Very delicious, great service. Will come back
Only con is not a lot of options for the dairy free gluten free..
Amazing service- all of the waitstaff is so friendly, greatnatmosphere and great food!
Always love having dinner at Temple Bar, a neighborhood standby. Fun, innovative menu options, good price points on dinners, excellent cocktails . . .
Wonderful service (thank you, Molly), a great vibe, reasonable noise level, though it rose as the evening went on. The food left something to be desired. The pizza with broccoli and feta was excellent. The caesar salad with salmon... the salmon was done to perfection but the Caesar salad was bland and there was very little of it. It had none of that special caesar-salad-dressing zingy taste. It was just some pieces of lettuce with a bland dressing. When the wait-person asked how the food was, I mentioned the issue with the salad and a few minutes later the manager came over to thank me for my honesty. I was not offered a fresher, tastier salad, however.
The following words came in our friend's thank-you message after four of us celebrated her birthday on Sunday evening.
Thanks so much for dinner at the very comfy Temple Bar restaurant. It was just what I needed — a relaxing time catching up with close friends while sharing some good food (including just-right salmon), a refreshing Vermentino wine and just the right amount of a sweet apple dessert. ... plus, very nice waiter!
I live close to the Temple Bar and up until a couple of years ago, I used to go there frequently with friends. The menu for me et al, is not very appetizing anymore, especially since they took the truffle pizza off the menu and added things like 'wheat berries'. However, we took a chance on Thanksgiving and had dinner there. Absolutely delicious, such a pity their regular menu cannot be so tasty and normal. The bar is delightful, very good if you just want a drink.
