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

This continues to be our favorite place for a dinner date. Incredible flavors, wonderful service. Just a great place when you want something special. The Mac and cheese is unbelievably rich, as is the cream corn with red pepper sauce. Enjoy!

Temper Grill is one of our favorite date nights. The food is perfectly portioned for 2, has amazing flavors with multiple layers, and a knowledgeable staff well acquainted with the menu options. A favorite that we order every time is the lamb pops - they have a cinnamon yumminess that's hard to put into words. Prices are fair for the... More

We really enjoy this restaurant. We like the smaller portions so you can try many different plates. Make sure you make reservations.
