I said to my family after the meal. I want to go again tomorrow to have that dessert myself as we had shared. Everything was delicious. I have Celiac Disease and the staff is very knowledgeable. They are a safe restaurant for e to go to with no cross contamination. The desserts are homemade. And the entrees plentiful! I have been going for years and they never disappoint.

This was our second time at Tempo. I have Celiac so I'm always on the look out for restaurants who can do gluten free well. Tempo did not disappoint. Virtually everything they serve is either GF or can be made GF. They also offer GF bread. The food itself is delicious and the drinks creative (highly recommend "Love and fernnet"). It's a bit of a pricier place to dine, but it's not stuffy and you can definitely bring the whole family.

Server went above and beyond to accommodate my gluten free friend. The food was fresh and unique. Will be going back to try the desserts too!! Perfect choice for after the movies.

Wonderful food in a comfortable atmosphere. The local mushroom risotto with burratta is a gem!

Went on a frigid Tuesday evening in January and restaurant was surprisingly quiet. That left our party with terrific, prompt service. Oysters were fantastic and a great deal at $1 each. Mains (steak, tuna, scallops) all well-prepared. Will definitely return.

Our first time at Tempo and what a treat. Our party of four shared several appetizers (cheese steak sliders and calamari) and all 4 entrees were excellent. Our server was attentive and informative and never pushy. Will definitely go back.
