Had a great meal celebrating my friends birthday at Temper. The staff was really good espically the male manager who was serving us! He is the BEST! So friendly and attentive. Great food and atmosphere would definitely reccomend for group meals.
Was nice enough for a date. Sat outside, service was a tiny bit slow however but didn’t mind.
Great evening , loved the atmosphere and food.
All the was staff amazing great customer service
Excellent steak (I had the T-bone) - very well seasoned.
Also had the truffle parmesan chips as a side, which were delicious.
Nice enough, but nothing special - especially given what you pay.
Very nice food. Well cooked steak. The nachos and the Halloumi cheese were really good.
Cocktails were not special.
Overall very pleasant experience and I would come back again.
Amazing atmosphere and service, couldn’t fault Temper! Can’t wait to return.
Good staff and food,environment and most of all the bill...
One of the best steak experiences I have had. We took advantage of the Monday steak club which made it incredible value with unlimited wine for 1.5hrs. Service was impeccable and I would highly recommend a counter seat where you can see the cooking in action and speak to the chefs who are very passionate about their craft.
One of the best meals I had as I just loved the different flavours coming through. We had the beef carnitas and shared a side of burrata and a side of cabbage. All of it absolutely delicious. Loved the lime dessert (margarita) too. Good atmosphere. Great restaurant. Will definately go back
Great food, amazing friendly staff and lovely atmosphere.
Really good service, accommodating staff. Food and drinks were all of great quality.
Fantastic food and even better staff. Would highly recommend.
It was a lovely evening. We have the steak meal which was a generous size piece of steak and drinks were unlimited for an hour. So a very good deal especially as they were still doing the Eat Out offer. My steak was slightly over cooked for medium.
Staff were friendly and helpful. I liked the modern decor.
If it was busier then the table spacing would have been too close.
From start to finish the service was top class. The staff were welcoming, friendly and made the dining experience there really inviting. The food was excellent, my partners steak was cooked to perfection and finally a restaurant that gives you more than 5 chips. Would recommend everything about this restaurant. Thank you
We loved our evening at Temper. Great atmosphere around the open kitchen, food was great, staff were super friendly. Will definitely be back.
We were seated in the basement even though there seemed to be plenty of space upstairs. Service was pleasant but patchy.
Food was good for the small dishes but steaks were disappointing.
Great service. Supper club offer is amazing value also. Will be coming back soon I’m sure!
They ran out of goat (lovely) and the portions were tiny, tasteless and just sloppy. The only delicious thing was the truffle fries. Very disappointed and won't be going back. Do not recommend...
Hi MKay, Thanks for the review! Apologies for running out of Goat, its as sad for us as you as its our site favourite. With regards to the food, we are often complimented on our excellent range of menu choices and flavours. Hopefully we will see you again soon - Mark Girdlestone General Manager
Always love this place, fantastic food and great service every time I visit.
Hhi Michael, Thanks for the review - looking forward to seeing you again soon! Mark Girdlestone General Manager
Overall we had a wonderful meal , food and drinks were all perfect. Only sour note would be that we were made to feel very conscious of going over our allotted time and yet we hadn’t been asked if we wanted dessert/anything else until 15 minutes before the end of our slot.
Hi Rosanna, Thanks for the review. We do have turn times on all tables in the restaurant, especially on busy nights as was last Monday. If you require additional time on the table that is always an option! Hopefully we will see you again soon - Mark Girdlestone General Manager
Amazing food. Service was fantastic. The music was right up our street. Can not wait to go back
Hi Nic, Thanks for the great review! Glad you like our music, we all do here to. See you soon - Mark Girdlestone General Manager
The food was amazing, great service and really lovely atmosphere. I'm very softly spoken so it was very difficult for me to be heard over the noise but my group seemed okay. If you're looking for somewhere quiet where you can talk - maybe not here but otherwise the food and service are great.
Hi Rhianna, Thanks for the great review! We do like our music here - if you request a quiet table we are more than happy to accomodate that for you. Kind Regards, Mark Girdlestone General Manager
Food and service both amazing! Can't wait to come back to London, will definitely come here again
Hi Kelley, Thanks! We are looking forward to you coming back to London and visiting again - Kind Regards, Mark Girdlestone General Manager
Went for my birthday
Delicious food and great service
Great experience, delicious food, excellent service and very well organized from a COVID secure perspective. Looking forward to coming back. The steak was incredible!
I’m a vegetarian and took my meat-eating friend there- more than enough very tasty selections for both of us (maybe I even enjoyed it more??) Cozy place—and service was amazing. A lot of restaurants can learn from this place. One caveat: the heat from the open grill can be a little overwhelming...
ordered the most expensive steak on the menu, order a long a wait it came out cold!!
drinks are terrible, service felt like they didn't really care. wouldn't recommend at all!
Hi Jayb, Thanks for taking the time to review. I do apologize for what seems to have been an out of character experience here at Temper. We pride ourselves on out efficient service and awesome steaks. Hopefully this has not deterred you from visiting again soon - Mark Girdlestone General Manager
Excellent food but incredibly loud music upstairs- not ideal for social distancing
Hi Sarah, Thanks for the review. All noted with regards to music in the venue - we do offer a lively and upbeat dining experience for our guests. Hopefully we will see you again soon - Mark Girdlestone General Manager
Delicious ! Great location, great vibe and delicious steak. My only critique was that the fries were too salty
Hi Charlotte, Thanks for the great review - i will pass this feedback onto the kitchen! Kind Regards, Mark Girdlestone General Manager
Lovely food with incredible staff. The food is just outstanding.
Hi Calum, Thank you for the great feedback! Jemima did mention to me you had come back again which is always a pleasure to hear. Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Mark Girdlestone General Manager
Great overall, food was wicked. Music a bit loud but that’s it
I know this is common in central London but it was like sitting in a night club, we couldn’t have a conversation becuase our table was so wide and it was so loud. Not a pleasant dining experience. The food was not anywhere near worth the price and very under-seasoned. It would be lovely if it was half the price. So disappointed as I’d wanted to try Temper for ages.
excellent food and Service. very cool atmosphere with the open grill cooking
Not only was the food great, but the service was amazing too. We ate from the steak supper club menu, which was superb value for money. And the steak was delicious - we’ll definitely be going back!
All perfect. The experience couldn't be better. I would like to thanks Ben for the amazing service on top of the amazing food.
Visited the Covent Garden location on Saturday evening for an early dinner (18.30). V quiet when we arrived but quickly filled up. Amazing food - we had tacos, rib eye, a selection of sides and the amazing deep dish cookie for dessert. Could not fault the food. Great service, particularly from a lovely young blonde woman who we did not catch the name of. She really made our evening out amazing. Will definitely return to both here and Soho location which we have visited previously.
Hi Abbi, Thanks for the great review! I will pass this onto the team. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Mark Girdlestone General Manager
We had a great evening at temper. Staff were great and food was amazing. We loved the music!!
Fantastic service. We probably ordered the wrong food, had pork rib - which was not what I expected. I thought it was going to be a rack of ribs but turned out to be a grilled pork slice which was mainly fat, my companion had beef skewers which again were not what we expected. We did end up ordering steak, as a 3rd meal which was really yummy. We spoke to the server afterwards who suggested next time to try the bottomless brunch which is every Saturday. Will probably try that in the future.
Great brunch option... good service team. Very accommodating
