"I've posted a number of reviews of Tempo, since this is one of my "go-to" restaurants near the Annandale neighborhood where I live.
Four of us went this time, and we all enjoyed our dinners. I had the mozzarella, tomato, and basil appetizer which was fresh and nicely prepared. (I know, what's hard about putting together a plate with mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil. In this case, the tomatoes were thinly sliced in half moon shapes and nicely displayed on the plate.
I had a special entree, two medium-sized soft shell crabs. These were good, but not great. The crabs themselves were a bit small, and they weren't cooked as crispy as I would have liked. But the flavors were excellent.
The four of us shared two desserts -- a slice of key lime pie (to die for) and a slice of chocolate cheese cake (not as good as the key lime pie, but I think that's because I like my cheesecake au natural, i.e., without chocolate mixed into the filling).
The other people in my party had the two bean soup (which received raves), and a pasta dish with crab meat, which they all loved.
As I said above, this is one of my "go-to" restaurants for slightly upscale dining near where I live.
If you haven't tried it, I suggest you do."

"The service was good; however, my wife being slightly handicapped, you would expect respect from the patrons. Apparently, when leaving there was a snicker or two. The food is good, the class is not."

"I have never had a less than great meal at Tempo. My nephew was in town and he loved it! We had excellent salads and entrees. It was very quiet on a Monday night. We did not have the Monday and Tuesday night special, as neither of us wanted wine. However, Tempo offers a great menu at the special price of $55 for 2 three course meals plus a bottle of red or white on Monday and Tuesday nights"

"We lost our favorite restaurant for top cuisine in a quiet setting: Chez Andree. That superb restaurant closed for good a few months ago when the owner/chef retired. We learned that the chef at Tempo is French and has been cooking for 40 years. Our meal was memorable, as each of us had a different entrée and all were superb. We will be going back often."

"Highly recommended: Monday's and Tuesday's special: 3 courses and house wine for two...for $55.00
Excellent value! Escargot appetizer had good flavor. I thought my veal scallopini entree was a little bland. The profiterole I had for dessert tasted fresh and not too sweet, although it was rich.

"Even thought the restaurant was sold out, all tables taken due to some group gathering, the service was top notch. The food was great and arrived hot. Our server, while quite busy due to the large crowd, never neglected us nor missed making sure we had everything and then coming back just to follow-up. I have been here several times, most bring new dinner guests, and I will come back again. It was, as Tony the Tiger would say, "GREAT!""
