Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy the convenience of chairs and tables with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale American cuisine and seafood at Tempo in Waltham. Tempo is closed on Sundays.

Tempo serves up generous portions of fresh seafood within its elegant but casual dining room. The menu brims with choice catches from the sea, such as the lobster mac 'n' cheese, comprised of a 1.25 pounds of buttery lobster and a five-cheese blend ($26), and Tempo’s special grilled, marinated sword chop, paired with fried poblano polenta ($29). Those searching for gluten-free options can peruse the extensive celiac menu, offering slow-cooked baby-back ribs served with mouth-watering cole slaw ($24). For dessert, indulge in the Tropical Dream, made of layered coconut cake drenched in mango mousse and passion-fruit sauce that was mined from a mystical rainforest ($8).

With plush U-shaped booths and long overhanging lights, Tempo’s atmosphere is a refreshing blend of lively and intimate, an ideal destination for a wedding anniversary or the United States Bicentennial.

Reservations recommended. Not valid with any other offers, including BARgains.

  • Waltham needs a hangout like this; while such spots are ubiquitous within city limits, they're relatively rare out here. So Tempo---as the name suggests---makes for a nice change of pace. – Gayot
  • Not only do they have a great menu but a wide variety of specials that I never get bored with. My husband and I are regulars and we have not been disapointed [sic] yet. – kata5611, Zagat
  • A pleasant surprise. Great, varied menu selections and knowledgeable, attentive wait staff. – An OpenTable reviewer who dined on 07/10/2010
