Great for dining, lunch, a glass of wine or a cold beer or soft drink and then kick back and enjoy some awesome music....especially the 'Bluez Dudez' !

“Great music and excellent sandwiches.”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

I've begun to stop by here on Thursdays and Fridays to enjoy the live music as well as the excellent Pile high roast beef melt and artisan lettuce salad. The staff is awesome. This has become my new go-to place for food and music.

“Hottest New Restaurant in St Augustine!!”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

I was in Tempo on Friday night Feb 28 and had a wonderful experience. The food was fantastic, the Ahi Tuna was some of the best I have had. There was a Latin Band there,Mario & Pepe that had everyone dancing in the aisle !! It was a upbeat atmosphere that made you feel like you didn't want to leave. The service was great, everyone there was very attentive. It definitely will be a place I will go back to the next time in town !!

“Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

I have lived in Saint Augustine for a year now and love to experience new restaurants. I stumbled upon Tempo last Friday night while they had live music and can say by far that this is one of the best restaurants in town! I was greeted by the owners and the server right away with a "Hello! Welcome to Tempo!.The server was very prompted and energetic. She was also very helpful at recommending what was the best meal on the menu. My husband had ordered The Big Ruben and I went with their fresh Ahi Tuna, cilantro lime rice and a fresh organic artisan salad. The food was remarkable and probably the BEST meal I have ever had for price and quality. The tuna was seared to perfection and the rice and salad were a perfect pairing. My husband also loved the Ruben. He even ordered one to go home with us! They had a great atmosphere with the salsa music, candles, and energetic staff. Around 8:30 a large crowed came in and the restaurant was packed! A girl that was sitting at the bar jumped behind to help out the server and later came to find out she was the manager. She came over to check on us during our meal and thanked us for coming in!
Overall the food is amazing, the staff was very nice and always had a smile on, and the atmosphere was perfect to sit, relax and enjoy St. Augustine. It is truly a hidden gem and if you are in town definitely take the opportunity to stop in and enjoy such a great restaurant!
