Amazing experience! My girlfriend and I have never indulged ourselves like this before and it was truly a wonderful time. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and super supportive/helpful. The food was out of bounds, as Guy Fieri would say. Some of the favors and dishes were incredible, stuff I've never experienced before. I would recommend to anyone looking for a new and exciting food experience. It made my girlfriends birthday very special.
I have been to many of the tasting menu places in Chicago and this was among the best! Very inventive yet still familiar food. Would absolutely go back!
I cannot say enough about our dinner at Temporis. The service, the food, the attention to detail...all outstanding. They went above and beyond for our friend with celiac who also doesn't like seafood. They not only accommodate her, but made her "one of the best meals" she's ever had. The food was not only delicious but beautiful to look at. The staff was attentive, fun and knowledgable. This place is a tiny gem we will return to again for sure!
Food and service were very good, but price was quite high
This was a very special place for a long and leisurely meal with old friends. The food was as delicious as it was beautiful, and the service was fantastic.
Overall amazing! The staff was incredibly friendly, professional and knowledgeable and they went above and beyond to making it a memorable experience. The food is complex, unique and inventive and overall extremely delicious. This place is a must try. One Michelin Star doesn’t do it justice.
Excellent in every way. Beautiful, elegant decor, professional service, outstanding and most imaginative food
Food absolutely amazing along with the service. As good was the conversational environment. A Chicago dining experience that should not be missed!!
Temporis is one of the best, most personal, most special restaurants in the city. My wife and I felt like we were being welcomed into someone's home. The food was incredibly beautiful and everything tasted just so good. The wine was fantastic, and the service couldn't have been better. Thanks so much!
We celebrated my brother's 30th Bday here and all the staffs were amazing. They greeted us and all wished my brother a Happy Birthday. The staffs were thorough with the wine pairings/ drink options, attentive during each tasting, and added a very nice touch in having my brother's menu signed at the end of the night which made it extra special. We all had a wonderful experience at Temporis. :)
The experience as a whole was phenomenal. The esthetic, the service, and especially the food were top notch. I highly recommend.
Really enjoyed the variety of food. The creativity was wonderful, but it was also delicious. The service was also excellent.
Food was beautiful and delicious however service was very slow and we were there for 3.5 hours (we were told it should take 2.5 hrs)
Excellent. Excellent food, excellent pacing for the courses, excellent balance of attention and privacy from the service staff. Great experience.
We had an amazing experience the staff was amazing the food was even better!
We dined at all of the 2 and 3 star michelin restaurants on this trip and at quite a few 1 star restaurants and this was definitely in our top 3 favorites. From the greeting to the departure, the experience was great and welcoming, They accommodated all of our requirements and went above and beyond. The staff was very friendly, the food was DELICIOUS, and the prices were extremely reasonable for the high quality service and food. After everywhere we have been in Chicago and worldwide, we were very surprised Temporis only has 1 michelin star. This place definitely deserves 2 stars and we will revisit for sure next time we are in Chicago. I would not be surprised to see this restaurant and chef get nominated for many awards and top lists in the future.
The food was amazing, but we were a bit disappointed with the reserve wine pairing
We went to Temporis as a group of friends, and it definitely did not disappoint. The food was absolutely amazing - interesting and delicious. And the staff was the best. They knew all our names, appropriately participated in conversation and clearly have a high bar for excellence without pretentiousness. I’m already planning a return visit.
Excellent food and service. So creative and amazing taste combinations!
Two hours in we were only on course 4. Don't come too hungry - service was painfully slow. Food was good, but not a standout compared to other Michelin star restaurants in Chicago. The wine pairing is where this restaurant shines.
Fantastic experience all around! The staff is very helpful and welcoming. The dishes are creative and delicious. The wine pairings are carefully thought through and greatly complement the dishes. Overall, a great place for a special occasion treat!
I would happily return, even if it was for the exact same dining experience as I had before. I will definitely get the beverage pairings next time around.
This meal was a symphony of creativity. Each plate was a true masterpiece to both the eyes and taste buds. The deliciously enticing flavors made our anticipation for the next course grow throughout the evening. The staff took careful note of when to bring the next plate, always giving us enough time to savor the last dish as well as enough time to converse in between. I have enjoyed several tasting menus and I would highly recommend this experience to anyone wanting to be utterly impressed.
We loved our evening. This is our second Temporis experience and we were equally impressed. The light, vibrant summer menu was right on point with great notes of citrus and fresh herbs. Delightfully balanced and a palate pleaser from beginning to our last bite. The moderate wine pairing was also spot on with some great notable wine selections. We look forward to our next return.
What an incredibly amazing experience! A sophisticated venue provided a very European feel. However, the 10 course tasting menu truly made the evening memorable. Chef Troy created plates of vibrant color that burst with a myriad of flavors in every morsel. The wine pairings were deftly translated by Laura who ensured our service was 5 star. I was impressed with the offering of reduced wine pairings so I could also enjoy the specialty wine with each course. It was the perfect celebration for my foodie's birthday! If you want a very special evening out, I highly recommend Temporis.
The food was unbelievable. Each plate was truly a work of art. I highly recommend you pair the experience with at least the standard pairings.
Sublime. Each course was more fantastic than the last. Bold, concentrated flavors and inventive pairings. Service was perfect...informed, helpful, friendly, while not intrusive. Highly recommended elevated dining.
From the food to the wine to the friendly staff, our experience at Temporis was outstanding. It is definitely in my Top 5 lifetime dining experiences. So glad my husband and I chose Temporis for our anniversary dinner.
Everything was marvelous. All in all it was one of the finest dining experiences I have ever had.Staff seems very well trained and the details of movement.placement and pace seems very well orchestrated.Seamless,unhurried yet efficient.I will be back in December.
Your new best friend,
I can’t put into words how outstanding our experience at Temporis was. The food and presentation was outstanding and the service left us in need of nothing else. The small touches that made it feel personalized just for us really was the cherry on top. We would recommend this to anyone looking to have an incredible overall dining experience.
Thank you Temporis for wowing us and leaving nothing to be desired. We will be back!

Absolutely perfect. The meal presentation was amazing. Service was first rate and the food was the best I’ve had.
This place absolutely deserves a second star. It gets better every time I'm there, both food and wine. It is truly a special experience.
My husband and I went to Temporis to celebrate his birthday. We both had an absolute wonderful time there. Love the food and creativity, love the waitresses and waiters, and hats off to the chefs and everyone who was working behind the scene. Thank you so much for making my husband's birthday awesome.
Wonderful experience. Highly recommended.
Amazing on every level. GO!
We had an amazing meal and a great wine pairing & the service is impeccable . Definitely the best new Chicago restaurant that we've been to in several years.
First time here - will definitely return. There for our 49th anniversary and totally satisfied. Food was very inventive and great tasting. Did a 10 course meal with a reserve wine tasting. Pours were generous and topped off if you wanted more. It is in an older building that does not look very inviting, Once inside you are totally surprised by the decor. Seats only 20 people and 16 were there when we were. Service was impeccable and the wait staff very friendly and did a great job describing each course. Not a cheap date but well worth it.
