Consistently good food, fun atmosphere, excellent server -- great neighborhood restaurant!
Great food, service, and especially accommodating for restricted diets! One of my favorite places!
Fantastic food, creative cocktails, service is great.
Super friendly service and a lovely meal. Really appreciated finding this spot and highly recommend the brussels sprouts!
Chose Tempo for a business dinner based on location, the menu which offered a lot of variety and there was a great beer selection with a lot of local brews. Everyone really enjoyed the food! The short rib stroganoff was a special and was delicious!
I love tempo. Food is great, a little pricey to go there at any time other than a special occasion.
The food was excellent and our server was equally as good. She made recommendations which were all perfect.
The only down side is that it is extremely noisy, especially on a Saturday night. It was hard to visit as we all have hearing deficits.
We will definitely return, but probably not on a Saturday.
Tempo never fails to delight. And tonight was no exception. This is one restaurant that does seafood right -- with a creative flair, but without spoiling the natural flavor of the fish.
Second time we have been here and food is delicious - great preparation, combinations and variety. Brought out of town guests this time who are tough critics and they loved it!
Overall it was a very good experience. As most restaurants these days the noise level was loud but we got lucky and were seated at the back in a booth style table (in part) that muffled the sounds somewhat. At least we could have a conversation at the table.
The food was well prepared and presented. We all had fish dishes that were excellent. The service was very good and we had a great time.
It is very loud in the dining room, but otherwise fantastic from start to finish! Thanks Tempo!
Great food and atmosphere! A tad loud but that adds to the lively environment!
The two things this place has going for it are the decor and the food. it is a beautiful restaurant and the food is very good. But the service is spotty, as in all Boston restaurants too many students masquerading as waiters and waitresses, and the final bill was shocking. I expected Downtown boston Food at suburban prices but this was Boston food with NYC prices.
I would definitely recommend this place but don't be in a hurry to eat, the service is slow and uneven and the prices may shock you.
Excellent food, great service! Loved the decor and ambiance
Wonderful evening at Tempo. Menu had many selections and the special daily menu had a variety of locally sourced items.
Always good. Several times there.
Although Tempo was very busy tonight, the staff was extremely welcoming. The bartender was helpful and kind while we were waiting for our table, and once we got to it our waitress was attentive and food was brought out in a very timely manner (and it was delicious!) I was very impressed with Tempo on a clearly very busy evening, and will definitely be back/recommend to friends visiting the Moody Street area :)
Wonderful ambiance. Attentive but not intrusive service. The food was mostly excellent. The mushroom ravioli didn’t get high marks but the seafood and duck was outstanding.
Great ambiance and service. Food was amazing and came out quickly. Only complaint was the smoking area was directly outside the front door, when it was opened the smoke waffled in. Will definitely go back when in the area.
Dinner was great and the service was good. As things got busier it seemed like the wait staff might have been a little thin.
Overall this is my go to place when I come to town.
I used to love this restaurant but it was not great this time. Service wasnt great & I thought the food was sub par. It was also
VERY LOUD. What’s happened?!!!
Great atmosphere. Very comfortable setting. Nice decor.
Our server was wonderful. Attentive.
Meal was excellent. Both seafood dishes were very flavorful and satisfying. Short rib lived up to the falls off the bone description. Cocktails creative. Very good craft beer menu. Highly recommended.
My pork chop, though ordered medium-well, was dry...like shoe leather dry. I realize it’s hard to hit that sweet spot but if I can do it as a home chef, I expect a restaurant chef to be able to as well. My friend had the salmon & he enjoyed it. We shared the warm apple crisp for dessert & the puff pastry was almost raw. Our server had that taken off our bill. We won’t be returning. Sad, I had great expectations.
We had to flag the waiter down several times for service.
The food was ok - nothing great. Had to add salt to the Mac and cheese side.
Great food and lovely service . I highly recommend tempo.
The Halibut Special was awesome as were the Scallop & Shrimp entree and the Fisherman's Stew. The wings were very tasty but very small. Would have enjoyed some bread and the waiter while attentive was over the top with a bit too much affect. Every visit started and ended with "My Friends".
Found this restaurant on Yelp as we are unfamiliar with the area. All four of us very much enjoyed our cocktails (crafted and delicious), appetizers (unique and flavorful) and everyone ordered a different entree ... none of which disappointed. Great menu, great vibe, pricing is appropriate and we will return if we are in the area. Check it out... you won’t be disappointed!
Made a reservation based upon reviews on Open Table. Got seated at a table meant for 2 next t the kitchen and the bathrooms, and felt squeezed. We mentioned it to the waitress, but were offered no other table. Sitting where we were, I was constantly bumped by people walking by going to the kitchen (staff) or the bathrooms (everyone else). That's because the table was meant for 2 - not 3. I paid the bill and spoke to the hostess/manager in charge, explaining that I paid in full to show that I wasn't trying to get away with anything. She said that they had too many reservations and that there were no other tables. I explained that we never should have been seated there, and I had I known that was the seating, I would not have dined there. I told her that I wasn't happy and that I would likely never go back there. She said "Sorry". That was it. Never going back. NEVER.
We were tight on time and the staff bent over backwards to make it happen - kudos!
Enjoyed a night out celebrating 53 anniversary. Received gift certificate for Christmas so decided to use it for the occasion. Excellent meals and service. Enjoyed the evening and would recommend to anyone.
Good, inventive food, good atmosphere. Wish it were a little less noisy sometimes, but we love this place!
All of us enjoyed our meals. The service was excellent. The drinks selection was very good. Fun cocktails, lots of local craft beers, and the wine selection was excellent with prices far below most restaurants. I love that.
First time visit. Great drinks. Brussel sprouts were outstanding Pork chop tender and cooked to perfection. Servers were attentive. Friendly atmosphere. Everything we had was up to expectations.
Great food, excellent cocktails, a place to meet up....it's just the right Tempo.
Tempo is a great night out with friends for a casual or even a special event. The staff is very attentive, the food is eclectic but approachable for those with simple pallets. Parking can sometimes be an issue but with enough planning, it's a great night.
We are always impressed when we come to Tempo. The drinks are fabulous and the food is amazing.
We really enjoyed our dinner, our server was attentive and courteous, and we look forward to going to Tempo again soon!
Fun place - most of the party reported loving all the food - and we had quite a few of the apps and dinners. Three of our party had the pork chop - a house specialty. For all 3, it was dry, large and dry. A bit pricey, but otherwise - we had a great time. Definitely DO NOT recommend the pork chop!
Delicious food and a very enjoyable experience all around. We will go again for sure.
