Food is pretty good. I loved the risotto once and went back but they changed the menu sadly. The outdoor area in the summer is adorable, and the back room is a very fun bar with live music.


Food is always amazing and consistent . The fish is always very fresh


Excellent menu


Great! My new favorite place - good variety of food, service excellent


Best meal I have had in a long time. My fish was perfectly done and seasoned. Great wine too! Will definitely be back soon.

Very good food and service, but the prices have really hitched up over the last year. $30+ for most entrees.


The food was very good. The servers were very busy so a bit of a wait. The noise level was too loud to carry on a conversation. A good place for a younger crowd, especially with music available on Friday nights.

Called ahead, was told no reservations but we could also sit outside and push tables together for our party of ten. Great. Showed up at 630. Got seated outside, waited a bit for service. Waiter and waitress took our drink orders. Then a hostess came out and told us we could not push the tables together. No discussion. We all just went and found a much better venue who was happy to accept our dinner and drink requests. Probably a $700 evening! Maybe re-examine policy or communications a bit more !


Reservations are a must for this wonderful restaurant. The menu has a selection that will please everyone. Our party of six friends was seated in the back. Our server was amazingly attentive and could offer his expertise on wine to dessert. The food is delicious. Quality and preparation in all details to pairings and plating. The Brussel sprout appetizer and the egg rolls set our mood and we knew we were in for a wonderful meal. Our scallops and salmon seafood meals were all melt in your mouth. The pork chop was tender and moist. The steak tips well prepared.

Amazing food and even better wait staff - honestly the nicest people. Parking is a nightmare, but obviously not the fault of the restaurant. Would happily come back again.


Everything on the menu was amazing. We shared a tuna and salmon tartare and both had their amazing Lobster Paella with shrimp, mussels and chorizo. We also shared a tropical fruit creme brulee. Tempo is casual and has friendly, efficient staff. If you are looking for tableclothes you are at the wrong place. Also at 7:30 it was pretty noisy but by 9:30 it had quieted down. And if you love oysters, Tuesday is $1 oysters.


Pleasantly surprised by the entire experience, starting with the relative ease of finding parking nearby. The outdoor setting was super, the service was terrific, and the food was great. Will definitely be back.


Great food. Really nice outdoor dining set up. Lots of good options for GF eaters.


Disappointed with the food. Fish was fresh but sauce was too heavy. I think the the menu is over ambiguous ( i.e. barbecue, Chinesish riff on appetizers). The waitstaff are very accommodating and the cocktails are good, but the food is mediocre.
