Go in and enjoy yourself for once in your miserable life. Stop complaining. Stop judging. Stop looking for your perfect experience and just enjoy yourself. Remember how fun that was? This is the place to start. Ask for "Spiro The Hero" I promise you he won't let you down. Just do it!

Chicken, mashed potatoes, broccoli...the chicken was juicy and buttery smooth with strong chicken taste. It didn't taste "like chicken" tastes better. Desserts are adorable works of art and perfectly sized. Had the malt sundae.

This is a staple on Moody St. If you go early enough, try to snag a seat at the bar -- the staff is great whether at the bar or tables, but the atmosphere at the bar exceeds the tables, in my opinion.

Ingredient quality was good and nice atmosphere, but overall very pricey for the final product ($60 for two). The filet tips were OK, but one chunk was gristle and the rest was over done. The salads were good. The pork ribs were good. The tuna tartar tacos were good. The bread and the passion fruit mouse were the most memorable to be honest. The staff was friendly. If you have money to burn, it's worth a try.

Tempo blew my expectations out of the water. The tartare and sweet potatoe bravas appetizer were awesome. Don't miss out on the short rib, it was fork tender and the side of wild mushroom risotto was very rich and delicious. My wife had the stuffed sole which we would order again. Will definitely be going back!

I love Tempo and all of the staff inside it. Especially the bar tenders! They are always there to serve with a smile and a nice conversation. I held a fundraiser with them for The American Cancer Society and they could not have been more supportive. The food is always delicious and fresh and I would recommend it to anyone.

Uninspiring food and loud atmosphere. Not somewhere to go if you want to connect with someone over a meal.
