In the Enterprise manager -> management -> SQL Server logs.
the log named "Current - <datetime>" has the <datetime> of when the server last started.

not sure if there is a short command that shows this info

remember ' tempdb' database will be re-created every time SQL Server starts.

>current log shows   current 07/06/2006 ...
Actually, that information is indeed not accurate, as by
DBCC ERRORLOG

the errorlog gets rolled (to avoid it grows too big)

the queries shown by aneeshattingal and me will be accurate, the difference of +- 1 second is the time needed to create the tempdb
