“Very Enjoyable”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

We usually go to Rare and founded it was closed but Temptation was just as good. The French Onion Soup is the best ever. We both had the Lobster Paella which was so good we returned and ordered it another night and of course we had the French Onion Soup again. The owners parents was very gracious hosts and some of the staff from Rare remembered us and stopped by our table to chat for a moment.

We missed Rare but the food and service at Temptation was wonderful and we experience two very enjoyable evenings there.

“Excellent Dinner”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

A group of 6 dined here on our vacation. Yes, its pricey, however, the food was delicious. Fancier dining and there is a pianist there who did a fabulous job. We were there Fri May 2nd.

Steak, lamb, beef were all amazing.

If you feel like dressing up and enjoying a great dinner with dim lighting and relaxing ambiance, this is a fab restaurant.

We just ate at temptations tonight and it was incredible. Best tuna I have ever had. Crab beignets were awesome. I had a filet which was one of the best steaks I've ever had and my husband had the seafood paella also awesome. We had the flower pot banana pudding for dessert and that was also great!

“Temptation is the Best!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

My husband & myself love this place! It's filled with family love, great food & pianist. What more can you ask for. We ate there twice in one week. Chef Dino & his mother the hostess comes around to talk with you. Thanks again to chef Dino for the delicious complimentary dessert.
