Rated 5 out of 5 by from My companion and I went to Tempo to celebrate her birthday. I chose this place based on convenience for the evening. Arriving on Saturday evening for our 7 PM reservation, we found the placed almost full yet all the diners were comfortably spaced. There is a relaxed atmosphere here that is immediately felt upon entering. That feeling persisted throughout the entire meal that started with a wonderful scallop ceviche. We each ordered from the daily specials menu and each chose a fish dish. The trout and salmon that evening were fine examples of the delicate balance between flavor and freshness. The only slight letdown for the meal was the presence of baby carrots in an otherwise splendid vegetable medley. The evening was topped off with carrot cake and a fresh fruit mix selected from a wide variety of available desserts. We look forward to returning to this very pleasant dinning experience. It even appears that there is outdoor seating that will be a treat in more pleasant weather.
