Chef's whim flavored popcorn at the start was fun, menu has a nice set of choices. Decent beers and wines available and service was fast and friendly. I had a great steak, she had lighter fare, all well executed and presented. Desserts were fresh and tasty. Great job!

I didn't realize this was a restaurant connected to a hotel or I wouldn't have gone there. I ordered the Monte Cristo special and I think they used the same frying pan for fish and then my sandwich - disgusting! I didn't finish my meal and wanted to wash the fish smell off my hands. The waiter, Marc, wouldn't give... More

We have been here before and enjoyed it but last night the service was awful. We had 90 minutes before the comedy show at the Scotiabank Center which should have been plenty of time. Our server was inattentive throughout the meal and left us sitting for 20 minutes after we finished eating. He chatted with other wait staff, cleaned the... More

I had the LOB Cobb salad. And other than one or two big chunks of lobster meat, it tasted like the shredded lobster in the salad came from a can. Very disappointing.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner here in February (we were staying at the Delta so it was very convenient). The service was excellent and the food (we had nachos, fish tacos, and a club house) was delicious! We will definitely be back!

Went to Tempo for breakfast, the service is excellent, the menu offers a respectable number of choices. The food is good and they go out of their way to ensure you are happy. We had a complaint that one of the meals was too salty. The chef came out to apologize and offered to make it up. Very impressed. The... More

Easy choice for breakfast if your staying at the Delta Barrington as it's right off the main lobby. Great service and friendly staff made for pleasant meals both times we ate here. Decent prices and an enjoyable atmosphere as well, definitely recommended.

I had never been to this restaurant but went with some colleagues after training the end of January. The presentation of food, knowledge of the menu and friendliness of wait staff was fantastic. I had the pork burgers with green curry sauce and it was absolutely amazing. We decided to go the 2nd day and it was also perfect. I... More

Stopped in for a couple of drinks and dessert. We were greeted nicely and seated promptly. The bartender wasn't too familiar with the drinks we wanted, but stated she could look it up. Turned out, she mixed a fine drink and we had no complaints. We also ordered a fig/date dessert with molasses sauce to share. The portion was quite... More
