Accepting Call Ahead Seating Nightly and Reservations of Parties of 6 or more!<br /><br />Tempo offers downtown quality and atmosphere in a convenient suburban location on Waltham's "Restaurant Row". The menu features a wide variety of fresh seafood, great cuts of meat, chicken, duck, and truly has something for everyone. Tempo is excellent for a date, great for groups, and the bar is a perfect place for singles and people watching. The cuisine rivals higher-priced alternatives and the staff is welcoming and eager to please. The bar offers the largest selection around and the wine list just received a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. Tempo is sure to please.

"The place is pretty cool looking and they have a nice cap of pricing on wines. The food was pretty good too (great deviled egg & brownie; not enough chips for guac/salsa; yummy kale salad; pork ragout not what expected but good). But the impression we were left with wasn't great because the service was uninterested and rushed. We were hoping to relax a bit, but our meals came out super fast - before our apps were even cleared, and the server did not ask about ordering another drink, which we wanted to but did not. He was really not attentive and didn't seem interested when he did speak to us. I'd give this place another chance, but might be more likely to try somewhere else."

"Cocktails were great, atmosphere was really cool and fun. We did entrees and they were shockingly small, particularly the chicken, which was not nearly large enough to satisfy a petite woman. The server did not warn us of the small portion sizes, so we ordered sides after the fact. Delicious food, but small and pricey. I'd stick to the drinks."

Sycamore is a seasonally inspired, chef-owned neighborhood bistro in Newton Centre. Emphasizing locally sourced produce, fish and meat, our menu draws on classic European country food; rustic and wholesome. Our beverage program is designed to complement the cuisine. The wine list focuses on passionate small producers, our beers are by and large domestic craft selections and the cocktail list highlights classic drinks and sipping spirits.

"Everything was very nice: service, cocktails, wine, food, and ambiance. Pickles were great, ceviche and peach salad (sans coppa) were quite nice, and farm board had lots of delicious options. Would definitely come back, though having lots of good restaurants closer to us, probably won't be soon. We were very happy with sycamore and would certainly recommend it."

Puritan & Company serves modern American cuisine, with particular emphasis on traditional New England fare, and not without occasional excursions into other ethnic ingredients and styles. Our mainstays are ingredients sourced from farms we know and locally to the extent possible, and always a sense of fun.<br /><br />Our dining room is a casual and fun place to dine. We love to share our excitement about the food and wine we serve like we would in our own home. Guests and their friends should feel comfortable in our friendly and even familial environment as we make our food and guest the number one focus.

"Adding a new favorite to our list. The food was all great, from appetizer to dessert, including the fresh bread. Cocktails were delicious, the place was cute and service was prompt and friendly. No complaints. Go a little off the beaten path to get here - it is well worth it!"
