Went for a Birthday Celabration! Recommend to me- so glad we went. Food, service was awesome. It was worth the price!!!!!
We were celebrating our anniversary and had a wonderful experience at Tempo.
Words can't describe how spectacular our evening was. Menu, food and service were absolutely the very best. Pricey but well worth it!
Made a last minute reservation for 6. Greeted at the door and sat in the front dining area by the bar. Food was fantastic, I had the halibut which was done perfectly. Kids tried the gnocchi which they both thoroughly enjoyed. Been a couple years since I’ve been there but will be back soon.
Wonderful restaurant! We celebrated our anniversary there, the service and food were exquisite. The wait staff was excellent. We were impressed by Ryan's knowledge of wines and pairings. Can't wait to go back!
The best restaurant in town with the best service!
This is a great restaurant conveniently located on Delaware Avenue. Great food. Great service. Top 10 restaurant in Buffalo.
Everything was outstanding. The best filet I've had in a long time. It is always a pleasure to dine at Tempo.
Great ambiance! Amazing food, cocktails and Jennifer was great!! We will definitely be back!
Used to be in my top 5 local restaurants. Years ago I had an average experience. The prices are not average. So I avoided returning. But I am BACK!!!! My recent dining experience was excellent. Seated promptly and courteously. Great pour on the drinks. Extensive menu. Food displayed nicely. Portions more than sufficient. Most importantly the quality of all our meals was outstanding -steak, duck and risotto entree. I can't wait to return.
What a wonderful dinner and experience. We love this restaurant and will be back again.
Lovely. Enjoyed the food and experience.
Very disappointed. We have eaten here many times but this was simply unacceptable, especially for the price. We had reservations for a special birthday dinner for my husband, with seating upstairs at 7:30pm. When we arrived, we were told by the hostess that she was setting a table and we should sit at the upstairs bar. There were 4 of us and 2 seats. When we inquired at 7:45pm as to the status, the hostess was flip and said she still had to set up another table for someone else first. Apparently, setting a table does not mean what a normal person thinks since they were apparently waiting for people to finish dinner and then re-setting tables. At 8pm, when I asked again, they offered to seat us downstairs, which has both a restaurant and bar area. We said yes, expecting to be seated in the restaurant area. Wrong! We were seated in the very noisy bar area but did not make a fuss because we were starving. Service was extremely slow, with us not getting our entrees until 9:30pm. Two of them did not have the double veges, no starch we requested and one of them (the $59 veal chop) was cold. Dinner for four was $400, with a few drinks and tip. Never again!
So much fun...as always. This place NEVER disappoints.
I booked reservations in advance based on reviews and was looking forward to nice relaxing dinner. When we arrived at the restaurant it was very busy and we had a drink at the bar while waiting for our table. We were eventually seated about 10 minutes after our reservation time at a tiny table placed so closely to the other tables that our server would run into my husband every time she went to the table next to us. Everyone working there seemed in such a hurry that it was anything but relaxing. We felt rushed through our dinner and seemed like an afterthought to our waitress. The food was good but expensive. After we were seated, I think we were only there for a half hour. Our entrees came out 10 minutes after we ordered and we also had dessert.
Excellent food quality, but restaurant was overbooked and understaffed resulting in uneven service. As a table of 2, we were given minimal attention because larger tables demanded our server's time. We also requested different/larger table when seated after more than a 20 minute wait for our reservation, but were told vacant tables were needed for parties of 4. Parties of 2 were subsequently seated at the tables.
Osobucco is execellent. ..
It has been a while since I've dined at Tempo, and I chose it especially for my birthday dinner with my parents. Imagine my dismay at finding that entree prices are much higher than I remember; most items were in the $50-$75 range. Way too high for a Buffalo restaurant. In addition, portions were huge, overwhelmingly so. My mother ordered the lamp chops, which were off-putting in their size. She could only eat one. My daughter's Chicken Milanese was heaped with a salad about a foot off her plate. Overall, while the service was impeccable, the food was very disappointing in both price and quantity.
Spot on fabulous as always. My favorite place for a girls night out!
A wonderful meal, perfectly served!
The food was incredible as always!!
Outstanding service. Interesting main and feature menus. Food excellent. Good wine choices, although on the expensive side...no red wines priced under $50. Would return in a heartbeat, though!
Having been to Tempo before, I was unpleasantly surprised by the meal this time around. I had a strip steak that was about half fat - a low quality cut for over $50. Hope for a better experience next time.
Came across this great find during a business trip to Buffalo. Food and service were spot on. Excellent wine list. Will definitely be back.
I used to go to Tempo a decade ago when I lived in Buffalo and I was really excited to find out that it's kept up its stellar reputation! Brought old friends there and everything I used to like about it I still like about it today. Fantastic food and great service! Great wine list too :-)
Everything was terrific, especially our waitress Cassie.
We go to Tempo for fine dining and truly exceptional entrees! Their wine list is extensive and menu choices are wonderful. I have always been there with a table of 8 and the service has been attentive and timely. It is a perfect restaurant for special occasions.
Excellent dining experience all around. Very attentive service which makes you feel comfortable. Creative dishes on the menu with excellent specials we kept being surprised with the little touches like the bread accompaniments, splitting the appetizer without us asking, I’m so glad we tried this place! We will definitely return with our foodie friends.
Simply great! It was our first time there and with out a doubt we'll be back. The food was amazing and the drinks rivaled the food. You won't be disappointed!
Best real Italian food for in the Buffalo area. Great service. Every dish is from scratch. I had perfectly cooked Octopus appetizer.
Recently my boyfriend and I went to Tempo to celebrate our anniversary. We were greeted with complimentary champagne to celebrate the occasion. The service was superb and the food was excellent. We will definitely make it point to come here on our next special occasion.
Amazing food, amazing service...what else can you ask for?
I was at Tempo two nights in a row. Both dinners were terrific, but what stands out for me for this restaurant is the incredible service! Our waiters were Eric and Kyle. Everyone from those two waiters, to the manager, to the busboy/lady are top-notch. I've eaten at several of the nicest restaurants in downtown Buffalo and for me Tempo is a standout. I'm looking forwards to getting back there on my next trip!
Awesome!! Had a great time!!
This was my first time at tempo and my experience was absolutely amazing. I had the calamari which tasted outstanding and for my main course I had the wrapped fillet mignon and to finish it off their homemade gelato which was to die for. The service was of the best I’ve ever had, (Kristin) thank you for your excellent service and bringing my experience at tempo to a different level. I will definitely be going back here.
Wonderful food and outstanding service!
We had dinner last Saturday. As usual, the food was outstanding
The veal chop and the butter poached lobster were our favorites.
Service was exceptional from our waiter to the young women that filled our water glasses.
Great food and service. Looking forward to another fine dinner there
