Best restaurant in Buffalo and there Bone-in Ribeye is the best stake Iv had anywhere. Price is high but worth every dollar. Now the menu is limited, but they always have specials. What they are good at they have often.

We went the day before Valentine's since I had to be out of town for the Holiday. It was an outstanding experience. Food, service, everything was exceptional. If there was one minor drawback it was that the music was just a bit loud and the selection didn't fit a fine dining experience. Otherwise, it was perfect. I would go back without hesitation.

This was our first visit to Tempo. The service was excellent from the time we arrived with the hostess to the time we left. The waiter and the wait staff were very attentive without being intrusive. The waiter was great at explaining the meal.

The food was excellent!! I can't say enough about it.

I would highly recommend this place.

This is a fine dining place.

Thank you for a great experience!
