One of the meals ordered was unsatisfactory but the waiter was not forthcoming in offering to adjust the situation. After requesting to speak with the manager our complaint was addressed. This should not have been necessary. Otherwise the food and the evening was most enjoyable.
Sean was an amazing server. Very attentive and knowledgeable.
Excellent food. Waiter a bit to eager to clear our plates when we were still eating. But other than that okay.
Met old friends hadn't been out with in a while. Great seating, perfect table size so that everyone could get in on the conversations. Food was delish, cocktails perfect. Great bar, nice setting, great food, terrific service.
Love the food here!! I wish they had read my request from open table that we were celebrating a birthday. That wasn’t acknowledged. The food is great, the atmosphere is great. Will come back soon!!
This was our second annual visit for my wife's birthday which I noted on the reservation request. The food and service here is wonderful, and we had my son home on leave so we were excited for him to have a great meal for his mom's birthday. The evening was was marred by the high school age hostess insisting on seating on placing us at a four top by the front door (cold night) and bar. My son politely asked if she couldn't find us another table in a quieter and warmer spot and we were taken to a table in the back of the dining room by the kitchen. The waitstaff was wonderful! We ordered drinks which arrived shortly! For her birthday my wife ordered herself a Grey Goose Cosmopolitan. What they brought her can only be described as a syrupy drink in a "shirley temple" glass, not a martini glass. She didn't finish the drink. Otherwise it was a great night; perhaps the front of house and bar staff can meet the exceptional quality of the kitchen and dining room folks?
Great food! Great and quick service! I will be back!
Everything was delicious!! Can’t wait to go back.
Attractive menu, but for an early Saturday seating we were surprised that at least 2 of the house specialty cocktails we wanted to try were not being served that night. That set an unfortunate tone for the evening. Salads were average, entrees ( mushroom risotto) were excellent. Service was slow. Will try on a weeknight next time to give this restaurant a second chance.
Our meals were pretty good. A little overpriced. They werent amazing and neither of us would order them again. I was also a little disappointed that I mentioned on the reservation that it was for my husband’s birthday and they didn’t acknowledge it at all.
Very clean and friendly restaurant. Food looks the same as the online photos and tastes as good as it looks. Everything was on point and for the price on top of it, it's awesome!
Great place, been there a few times and love the staff. Love love dollar oyester night, truffle fries and the food in general. Great atmosphere and great location.
Favorite thing on the menu--truffle fries, tuna entree with curry sauce. And the vreme brulee was great, too. Fun place to go with friends but it's a pretty loud place. We will be back!!!
I had not been to Tempo for quite a long time, and was delighted to see how both the ambience and the menu had changed. I really appreciated all the healthy options on the menu. The food was delicious and well prepared. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. Other than the fact that the people behind us were quite loud, which impacted my own table conversation, a wonderful experience.
Entrees were disappointing. Halibut overcooked. Scallops and shrimp drowned in tomato sauce. Bad menu description.
Service very good.
Creme brûlée very good.
Wines by the glass...meh unless you chose the $12 options.
We had a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner. The food was awesome and the beer and "holiday" crafted cocktail were great.
Great food and healthy... went for a group diner for valentines and was nice and cozy..
This was Valentines evening, so everything had to be great - and it was:
- Took us right on time with our reservation
- Our server arrived immediately and after some conversation with the bartenders, made us exactly the drinks we wanted
- The timing of the dinner was right on - each course with a short rest between
- Food was very good: the roast salmon and the Cajun blackened swordfish were beautifully cooked
- No hurry, even though it was a busy night
- Excellent dessert, adjusted to our taste on order
Not cheap, but, very good!
The problem with Tempo is first of all is it's location (Moody St. Watham). I see it as a neighborhood bar and for a bite to eat after work. Nothing special. It used to be! Also we were "over-served". I found the server totally obnoxious. We didn't even get a chance to sit down and take our coats off before he started asking us what we wanted to drink etc. and he never left us alone during dinner. Always interrupting us and seemingly trying to hurry us along. We had a 6:30 reservation and were in our car to go home before 8:00. I know we had a 2 hr timeline. It was really disconcerting and we probably won't ever go back.
All the staff was very helpful and attentive.
My friends and I dined at Tempo on Saturday night. The food was great and so were the drinks. We decided on just apps and small plates, as we weren’t as hungry as we initially thought. Our server was awesome too!
One thing that was annoying is we were planning on getting salads and adding protein but the protein add on was more than the salad! Also, a friend did get salad sans protein and it wasn’t the largest portion of you were making it an entree.
Overall, great experience and we’ll be back!
Food is always good at TEmpo- very consistent with a varied menu- we took out of town guest there. We made a reservation so was hoping for a nice table but was placed in the center of the room- guess next time we will have to be more specific.
Excellent will go back!! Went with a few friends, Pat our waiter was great and food delicious!
We had the lamb shank and short rib stroganoff can't say enough. Melt in you're mouth goodness homemade pasta. Definitely going back
Love love love tempo! The food is so good and the ambiance is great!
Portuguese stew was delicious but could use some nice bread for dipping!
Cocktails were fun.
They ran out of scallops????
The food was really great. I had a short ribs dish with polenta, and I wish I could have licked my plate. My friend enjoyed the fish and chips, which was a huge portion so she took half home.
The waiter was excellent.
I wish it were quieter. Also, I wish they had iced tea. And I wish parking was easier. But overall, great.
Attentive service and an extensive gluten free menu!
Tempo has become our new favorite place for upscale yet casual dining. The menu cocktails are different and truly marvelous -- our waitress shared that the bartender is a mixology genius, and we agree! Delivery of the meal may be a bit slow to some folks' standards [we prefer it that way; we never feel rushed!] because all food is freshly and expertly prepared, and it is beautifully plated as well. Favorites are the hanger steak and "any" of the seafood items. Nothing has disappointed us!
This was a great find. casual but the food was great and the beer selection really outstanding I had the Salmon which was wonderful and the $1 oysters started the meal off right ! Will definately go back when returning to Beantown.
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.
Went here for a special New Years Eve seating. Prompt seating, delicious menu, excellent service. Would highly recommend.
Great service, food was perfect. Had people with allergies and all accommodations were met. Would definitely go back.
Simply the best restaurant around Moody. You should try it.
I have frequented Tempo many times. Have always been pleased. This time two of our four Entrees were rather mediocre. I hope this is just an a aberancy. Since Tempo is one of my go to places.
