The wait staff are uniformly pleasant and helpful. They are knowledgeable about the wine. There is a superb selection of wines. Food is prepared with care and innovation and served in Tapas style to be shared around the table. Overall, it is a very satisfying dining experience.

Love this place for a special night. Definitely make reservations as its a smaller place and is usually packed. They often have the same favorites with a specialty menu. If you aren't used to the tapas way, read up on it before you go. You will get full and it will be delicious!

Our favorite date night. Incredible food and great service in a great atmosphere. Tapas style, which makes it fun to share a variety of tasty items with friends, or someone special. Try the the cream corn in red pepper sauce. Yum.

Great way to try several dishes! Went with husband and sat at the bar; make reservations if you want a table. We ordered several dishes to sample multiple things. The corn was the very very best!

I've been to Temper Grille three times and each time has been wonderful. The mac and cheese is to die for! Also their wine selection is excellent as well. Only draw back is lack of space. I hope they are eventually able to move somewhere slightly larger - like twice as big - as the food is excellent.

This restaurant has a warm, intimate atmosphere. Chef Sean is a laid back, kind and incredibly talented man. Unless of course you tell him you don't like his food. Then, he most likely will colorfully express his dis-concern for your rude comments as he points you to the door you came in (i.e. "temper" grille). Lol! Genius if you ask... More

Went for dinner with my spouse and was surprised to walk into Temper Grille after the remodel. Looked great! Have been here several times before and although Temper Grille calls themselves upscale, we had never found them to have professional wait staff, but did find one today! I think her name was Sara and she had only been there for... More

I brought my husband for his first visit to Temper Grille on Saturday and he can't wait to go back! Loved the lobster Mac and cheese, steak bites and even the red pepper hummus which he said was the best he's ever had (and we've been to Egypt where we ate it every day!). Great selection of beer and wine... More

Temper is billed as a "Tapas"-style restaurant. While they call their servings "tapas" most are a bit larger than typical "Spanish" restaurant tapas- but also more expensive. Marvelous chef who makes wonderful sauces. 5 items satisfied 4 diners tonight. We have been here 5 or so times, always very happy. . Most items were very good- best was the mussels... More
