Food and service perfect, great evening.
Greeted with champagne for our anniversary. Delicious food in a timely manner.
Tempo never disappoints. In my opinion it’s the best restaurant in Buffalo.
Excellent food; attentive, courteous, and highly professional staff; very pleasant seating. Great wine list. Wonderful desserts!
The interior is beautiful and we were led to a cozy table where we could celebrate my birthday intimately. The food was spectacular (and I deeply regretted not being able to finish it all). We had very friendly and attentive service and really enjoyed the entire experience. It is slightly pricey and there is a vibe I can't quite put my finger on that was a little off putting but recommend--it was a wonderful meal.
The food was excellent, fresh and creatively prepared. The chef is wonderful.
Stopped in after dinner at another restaurant for an after dinner cocktail and dessert with the in-laws. Homemade desserts are top notch. The tiramisu was spectacular along with the gelatos and sorbeto! Service was top notch as well. Sat outside on the patio and it was a nice night to do so. A great place for dinner and dessert. A must eat at in the city.
We ordered the calamari appetizer which I have had many times and found to be excellent. On this occasion it was doused with chili sauce so that by the time it arrived at our table the lovely tempura coating was soggy. It was also overly sweet
The main course was gnocchi which I have also had in the past and enjoyed very much. The gnocchi itself was light as a feather. This time, however, it came in s casserole dish swimming in sauce. On top was an overly thick coating of mozzarella that got tough as it sat. All in all, for $30.00 it was a disappointment. It was much more in keeping with a “red sauce” restaurant.
The food was disappointing but our server was outstanding.
One of Buffalo's finest restaurants.
Tempo has exquisite food, delicately prepared. The Lobster Bisque and seafood was fabulous. Loved the charm of the old Victorian. Great service. Quiet atmosphere. Very nice.
The restaurant is great. The host and hostess are very professional. Mike B is a good waiter but should be trained not to reach over people. I also noticed the bus boy doing the same. It’s basic restaurant service practice not to reach over any guest. This ruined the great score I would have given Tempo.
Tempo has been our go to restaurant to celebrate many occasions. Being parents of two young children we do not get to go out without our kids very often. So we get excited when we do get this rare opportunity to celebrate my husband’s birthday. This past experience was disappointing due to how it was handled. My husband was looking forward to ordering their specialty...the $69 ribeye. He ordered it medium rare and it came out almost well done. He mentioned to our server that the steak was over cooked and the server asked him to cut in the middle to see if it was better. It was not. Now we aren’t ones to send food back or raise a stink but the server did not do anything. What is the proper protocol in this situation when it’s a $69 steak and you are trying to be nice about it? At the very least, shouldn’t the server involved the manager to either discuss bringing another one or reduce our bill? We love Tempo and wish this could have been handled differently. Not sure if we will back after this as he was really disappointed.
Lovely food and very professional and friendly staff. Nice setting, too, in an old house in quirky Allentown. Very expensive, but worth it.
As always, incredible food and service. Above what I consider reasonable in price, but always a great experience.
From beginning to end the experience was amazing! Khyle was such an amazing server and the support staff excellent as well...relocating out of Buffalo but when coming back to visit wouldn't hesitate to make reservations for a return experience to enjoy your exquisite establishment~beyond expectations~
Fantastic food and service, plenty of great food choices and evening specials. Atmosphere adds to the experience 👍🏼👍🏼
Always excellent experience at Tempo, which us easily my family’s favorite restaurant in Buffalo.
Phenomenal meal. Outstanding wait staff. First rate experience!
It was my husband’s 30th, and we have always wanted to try this place, but we just never got around to it. They didn’t disappoint! Food literally melts in your mouth! Servers are well versed in menu and extremely attentive, highly recommend you go if you have not.
Always a treat. Great Aperol Spritzs/wine/food. Wonderful calamari/foie gras/osso bucco. Wish I could move off those same choices but they’re too good to change things up!
Went for our anniversary and got two glasses of Prosecco complimentary . Nice touch. Food is phenomenal. We had oysters mussels octopus and salmon — all wonderful. Room gets noisy and wine seemed a bit pricey. Service was very professional.
Absolute perfection. Kyle was one of the best servers I’ve come across. Food was phenomenal.
Excellent food, enticing wine menu and professional service sum up out experience at Tempo.
Osso Buco is a "must try".
Tempo is top notch all around. One of the best restaurants in WNY. Service was incredible and the food was even better. What a fantastic evening put on by the entire staff. We had a party of 8 and got to sit in the Belvedere room. Absolutely amazing up there, with its own private bar. I am never surprised by how amazing this place is, that’s why I keep coming back.
Great cocktails. Excellent variety of appetizers and entrees. All food was very good. Service was very good. Outstanding wine list.
Pasta Bolognese was poor quality and basically heavy on the ground meat. Carbonara with scallops consisted of under cooked chunks of pancetta and had no seasoning. Wines were good but over priced per glass and noise level was totally unacceptable from neighboring table. All in all a very negative experience.
Great food and service!!
Outstanding! Never a bad meal here. Took our 14 year old son for his birthday and now he wants to come back every year.
As always, we truly enjoyed our evening. I must say though that the Rib Eye and Filet were both overcooked. The maitre’d comped us desserts, which was a nice gesture. We will most likely return
The food and staff were great.
outstanding food service & ambiance. The service is outstanding an exceptional dining experience on every level from start to finish the in-house pastry chef is absolutely fantastic
Poor service, waited way too long,nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnot good
Noise level - We were glad to be seated upstairs. Much quieter than down stairs and more relaxing. Very beautiful space. Everything was great!
Service was mediocre, food was good but not excellent, noise was intolerably loud, and prices were high.
A favorite of locals and visitors alike, Tempo offers exceptional food in a refined (but not pretentious) atmosphere. Wonderful service and quality that comes highly recommended.
I have never been blown away by the food at Tempo and I guess I picked the wrong entree again tonight (5/11/19) butter poached lobster with corn and bacon risotto. Since when has corn reached the gourmet level?! And if that’s Tempo’s idea of risotto they should contact San Marco for lessons!
Zero taste, wildly overpriced- at least Tempo did a good job of shelling the lobster.
Everything was wonderful, especially the service. We spent some time at the upstairs bar before being seated and the bartender was excellent. I cannot express what a wonderful meal we had and how great the service was.
