So I ate at this place 3 times from Saturday to Saturday. I had an extended stay in London, first work then vacation. I ate here on my own the 1st Saturday, the place was jumping which is crazy in the City in August. I took my UK colleagues on Tuesday, they were shocked to find it tucked away in the Square Mile and delighted with the food. Then I took my wife for date night on our last night in London and she loved it too. Staff were great, ambiance high energy yet intimate, food excellent. Highly recommended!!
Still does amazing meat. But menu was more interesting a year ago. The goat stew poutine is missed.
Food was absolutely exceptional - great variety and all tasted ridiculously good.
Love this place, fun, different but still a high quality presence of meat/steaks/grills. Great lunch menu and the tacos are sublime
Thanks a lot for the great feedback. I'll pass this along to the team. You just made their day!!!
Excellent food, friendly staff. We will definitely be going back for another special occasion.
The rib eye steak was perfectly cooked, so soft tender and juicy! Would recommend to meat lovers. Just be aware they only do large portion (500g) so make sure you come hungry!! Lively atmosphere perfect for a relaxing and fun gathering
Hey Jessica - Rib eye is one of my favourite cuts as well. Thanks for the nice feedback. My chefs will be happy to hear you enjoyed yourself.
Good food done in an interesting fashion. The restaurant is done up well and the staff are friendly
Meeting friends had excellent service and really tasty food.
Great attentive service with exactly the table we requested. However once we had orders everything slowed down and the food whilst good was in very small portions. Best yo over order!
Good food. The meat is amazing. Service was good. Would recommend temper
First time at temper and absolutely enjoyed it. Waiter (Rey) was great, explained all the dishes and gave food recommendations. All the food was brilliant. Definitely going back!
Food is very overpriced and portions were very small. Best food item was the pork bites which were appetisers. Steak was average, carnitas and tacos were good. Cocktails were okay and for some reason were only filled half the glass.
Ambience of the place is poor, cleared out very early (was a Wednesday to be fair) and full of suits (is in the city to be fair).
Heard better things about the Soho Temper so would give this a miss and grab a tube to Holborn from Bank to go there!
Date Night with my husband and it was perfect! Excellent atmosphere, great food and good service! We sat at the bar, so close to all the action, thoroughly recommend.
Top notch steak, and happy hour when we arrived so great value wine. Good value for quality and great atmosphere
Excellent as usual - standards never drop. Steak is good and tacos make for an excellent starter
Great steaks, a good wine list and relaxed, efficient service.
Excellent food and lovely staff. Really nice atmosphere and the music was really good too
Food was good.. when it turned up. Didn’t bring a starter that was ordered, and same with the mains.. 4 out of 5 were brought to the table, the other was forgotten - therefore had to wait to be cooked from the start.
Been there a few times so far. The food is great, ambiance is excellent and the service is always very friendly. It dors get busy around 7pm, but tables are well spaced, which means that you can enjoy dinner without feeling squeezed.
food was unbelievably good. Will definitely plan a return visit. The staff were friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. I would say this is the best restaurant I’ve been in for many years. Go there!
Excellent service. Very good food. Sensible value. Will return.
100% perfect steaks and excellent menu selection. We had a great time. Great place if you want to enjoy a good conversation with friends since it wasn't noisy at all, just background music and whoever picked it has very good taste! Deserts maybe not 100% their strength, but we enjoyed them a lot nonetheless!
Fantastic food, service & ambience!
Special shout out to the chef, absolutely makes the place great as it is! Get this man a bucketbomb!
Excellent as always. Tacos and steak. Sit by the bar and occasionally the chef shares an extra treat.
The tacos are sublime! Very different menu that also keeps the steak lovers happy
I’ve eaten at this restaurant before and have had good experiences. But this time both the beef and goat carnitas were totally undercooked, to the point they weren’t really edible.
seems unncessary to have the chef loudly banging meat in the middle of service. also waiter was new and didnt know the menu and his english language skills were sub-par, despite him being very nice. the noise from the kitchen didnt help the server.
This is a must experience if you like great food being served to you by warm, friendly and knowledgeable people. We love Temper City and will keep returning.
Still with one of the best selections of martinis in London, Temper is perfect for a long, boozy session with friends. Comfortable and still with a nice low-key buzziness even on a weekday afternoon, the only thing that spoilt the visit was the tartare-style burger. Pink is one thing but raw is another and it made an otherwise tasty burger taste odd. Also a shame that their fantastically quirky ‘Mr Faulty’ cocktail isn’t served any more - particularly when it is still on the drinks menu. Would still recommend though, even with the odd misstep this time.
Excellent meal. Creative menu, tasty food, good service. Loved it, especially the soft shell crab tacos
Service wasn't great and then they had the audacity to put on service charge - something we didn't realise until we had left. Our lunch took 50 minutes to come out, which isn't ideal when most people only have an hour for lunch. We asked several waiters when our food was coming and they all said in a few minutes (over the course of 20 minutes). Having to rush down our food completely spoilt the experience, in my opinion.
I ate here just two weeks ago and it was really good. We all ordered fish and were then told there wasn’t any. The dish I had before was awesome so we all ordered that... this time round it was rubbish. My client had hardly any meat on his beef dish...a waste of time. Won’t be returning.
Fabulous rib eye as ever!
Satisfactory lunch with great service and quality food
I'd been wanting to visit Temper for a while and I wasn't disappointed. It's a large space dominated by the charcoal grill and prep area in the middle. Some of the cuts of meat are on display. Service is a bit hit and miss.
You need to be very hungry to eat much off the main menu as the cuts are huge. I plumped for the cheapest option which was the lamb chop at £18. It was probably the nicest I've ever had. My friend had the ribs, which were also reported as excellent.
The wine list isn't cheap and again we chose the "value" option - the house Tempranillo. Judging by the fact it came in an unmarked bottle I'm guessing they buy this buy the vat and it was drinkable, if a bit bland.
Overall, the quality of the food wins out and I'd definitely come again.
Get the smoked beef - delicious. They make a great cocktail as well - bar has a nice ambience
Great evening at Temper. The service was impeccable and the waiter was knowledgable and helped us choose what to order, as we didn’t know what to choose (all looked great!)
The food was amazing, every bite was delicious (especially the pork tacos and the pork ribs!)
We sat at the bar and the staff behind the kitchen were helpful and fun and the happy hour 5-7:30pm meant that 2 starters, 2 meat mains, 2 sides, 3 G&T’s and a Prosecco with service charge was just over £80!
I am already planning my next visit!
Tasty and delicious food combined with quality wine and service made this lunchtime visit very worthwhile and enjoyable!
Really friendly staff, very nice steak and cocktails included in the limitless brunch
Couple of large noisy tables but to be expected
Michelle serviced us and she was brilliant. Food was amazing. We came in for Brunch and had the bottomless cocktails and Porterhouse steak, followed by the cookie with caramel. Having been to Temper City I expected it to be a high standard and it did not disappoint. My favourite of the 3 Temper restaurants.
