Beautifully layed out restaurant with ample spaces between tables. Staff was amazing as well! My guest and I felt welcomed from the time that we entered until we left! Outside of the true to their roots downtown restaurants I highly recommend checking out this place.

I enjoyed sharing the platters. That way I was able to try many different dishes without feeling bloated. The food is a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. My partner had a Fumo drink which was cool to see made...they smoked the glass with some lit cinnamon sticks. Awesome!

Service (Lindy) was awesome. Food was unique and excellent. Had some shareables and the large charcuterie board both beyond expectation. Had a great evening and can’t wait to return.

Our server was knowledgeable about dishes and attentive during our stay. Menu wasn't extensive but covers all tastes. Our dishes were hot and excellently prepared. The charcuterie board for 4 was outstanding. Management sent over a complimentary vegetable dish and birthday dessert. Overall it was a great value for what we had. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant.

I enjoyed my stuffed chicken but the Tuna was a little raw for my wife. She has never had Tuna before so it was not her favorite meal. over all the experience was good. we will be back.

I picked the special desert and it was almost like a mousse or custard and it was very tasty. The soup was a cream of cauliflower which was smooth and not bitter. Could have been a bit warmer though I saw them heat the bowls in the big oven as I sat at the open kitchen area.

I took my parents to Tempo for the first time, they truly enjoyed their time. They kept raving about how amazing the food tasted. They also really enjoyed the atmosphere. Probably one of my favourite places here in Sault Ste. Marie.

This was our second visit to Tempo. We were eager to try other menu items as we were so impressed on our first visit. Did not disappoint! The food was amazing! Our first meals were Short Rib and Stuffed Chicken. Fabulous. On our second venture we enjoyed the Seafood Pasta and the Porchetta! Scrumptious. Wonderful presentation and perfect portion size....allowing room for us to indulge in a dessert. Looking forward to our next dining experience at this wonderful new restaurant.

Finally, a restaurant with Mediterranean dishes here in Sault Ste. Marie. My wife and I both got the gluten-free stuffed chicken, which was one of the best-stuffed chickens I've ever had. I really enjoyed the open kitchen aspect of this place, it was entertaining to watch our food being prepared. It was nice to see a menu that caters to everyone's dietary preferences and restrictions.

I had the soup special (velvety) and shared the flatbread and it was a nice change for lunch. I felt safe in the "pods" they have built for COVID.
