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

My wife and I were there for our anniversary. Great feel to the restaurant, had a glass of champagne waiting for us (let them know why your making a reservation). Food was Great! Service was Great! One of the best restaurants in Buffalo.

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

My wife and I went to Tempo this week as it was a chance to get out of the house and we arranged a Babysitter ! I have been there once before just for desserts and drinks with friends but have never been there to eat and did hear good things about it. We were seated promptly which was nice... More

Went here with a group of 9 for New Year's Eve. Fantastic experience! This is a smaller restaurant, with 3 dining areas. Our table, seeing as it was for a large party, was right in the front, by the bar. While we waited for everyone in our group to arrive, we got wine at the bar and the bartender was... More

Fliet Mignon was dry, lobster was rubbery, food was horrible. Do not take anyone there you are trying to impress!!! Overpriced for amateur cuisine.

Wonderful, attentive service with a great menu to cover all taste preferences. Expansive wine list too. Tempo's setting is very refined and beautiful yet perfect for an intimate dinner. They pretty much cover all the bases for a perfect night out!
