"Just had dinner with the family last weekend at Tempo. Everything was fantastic. The wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was scrumptious...the hardest part was choosing just one entree- everything looked so yummy. I would definitely go again!!!!"

"My husband and I often go to Tempo on a weekend night for drinks and food. It's become a fairly regular 2 x month visit. Always enjoy it and it's a great local place to hang out. We have a few favorites: I love the pit-in green olives that come with my martini, love the oysters in half shell and the unusual accompaniments- especially the jalapeño sherbet."

"Enjoyed a great dinner at Tempo last night. Everyone enjoyed the appetizers (calamari, beet & goat cheese salad, & salmon & tuna tartare), drinks, main courses (seared shrimp & scallops, fisherman's stew & the nightly special pasta) and desserts (fried dough & cheesecake) we had. The bread on the table was buttery & enjoyed by all. Our server was patient, recommended popular dishes & didn't rush us. looking forward to a return visit"

"Simply put, if Tempo was closer to me it would be my go to place. Great menu, rare libations and a staff that truly cares about your experience. Spiro at the bar is one of the top 3 bartenders in Metro West especially when comes to dining at the bar. Finally, since gluten is evil it is good to know it is not needed in an innovative and delicious menu. Enjoy!!"

"I have come to Tempo a few times both for dinner and just drinks, and I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal here. Made reservations for Saturday and was seated right away, our waitress was very prompt and helpful is picking out wine to go along with our dinner. This is one of the best restaurants in Waltham, and a go to for us for a date night outing, when we don't want to go into Boston."

"I planned a special occasion and I was thinking of TEMPO. Because the menu looked amazing and they serve tartar (my favorite) along with other fancy dishes."

"Following our 3rd visit we will keep Tempo on the top of our Waltham list. The service staff are prompt, attentive without the persistent ' is everything ok' visits. The meals were nicely presented and the portion size is perfect."

"The vibe at Tempo is upbeat (get it?), with fun bar scene, ever-changing creative menu, quirky fireplace computer images behind the bar (that most everyone loves, btw), and friendly, attentive staff. Hate to sound cheap (which I'm not, which you can verify via my AmEx bill from last year) but $1 oyster night on Tuesday is a stunning winner. We all love it!!
Makes us come back again and again and again.

"We'd eaten at Tempo previously, and everything was very good. This time the food was mediocre and the service was so-so. This may be because it was New Year's Eve. Both the grouper fish dish and the Osso Bucco special were disappointing. We like this restaurant because of its convenience and easy atmosphere and may or may not return again."
