First time overnight in downtown Buffalo, our hotel was in an area called Allentown; close to the university. We spotted Tempo and, despite the very pricey menu, wanted to give it a try. My wife had the salmon dinner and I had the Caesar salad($11) and scallop appetizer special($14). The service was attentive and efficient and food creative and excellent;... More

This was our first dining experience here and our meal was absolutely amazing! The service was top notch and our server was great. We ordered and enjoyed several appetizers which were all delicious. You can order 1/2 orders of pasta entrees as apps. The specials all sounded good. The tilefish was one of the best fish I have ever tasted... More

We ate here last night and I am looking forward to my next visit. We were doing business downtown and happened upon Tempo. The service is great, strong menu and wine knowledge, friendly and attentive. We started with calamari and it was very good, the bread is great. Three of us ordered the special, a veal chop stuffed with sun... More

I went for dinner with my business partners and all of our meals were excellent. The decor is nice and I would think it would be a nice place to bring your spouse for a nice evening. The price is reasonable for the quality of food and service. I will make an effort to dine at this restaurant again when... More

I have been to Tempo on several different occasions. On each occasion it was an exceptional meal. Once we had beautiful white sardines in a salad. Another time we hadsome cheeses that I had never had before. The entrees are unique and well executed. Each time I have been there it has been a great experience, from the meal to... More

Some of the best food I've had in the area. Smallish place. Great atmosphere. Suffers from the intimacy of the establishment and hardwood floors with an overall din. Great place for a fine meal and company but not for an intimate meal.

I have eaten at Tempo a good number of times over the years and it is consistently very good. The bar is well stocked as is the wine list. The food is great and the waiters very attentive.

Wow so I heard a few good things about this place so I figured my wife and I would get out for an early Valentines Day dinner so we went here. There was parking available on the street or in the neighboring parking lot. The ambience was very elegant but not over the top. The food was amazing and by... More
