Temporis is open Tues-Sat, 5 p.m. until the last seating at 9 p.m. Each night, the restaurant serves a 10-course tasting menu of progressive American cuisine. On Tues-Thurs, a 5-course tasting menu, an abbreviated journey of the season, is offered as well; please let us know which tasting menu you would like in your reservation requests to help us best plan for your visit. Our 10-course tasting menu is $155 a person and our 5-course menu is $85.
Very creative, mostly delicious, however a few courses not top notch, saltiness or bitterness overpowering, or main ingredient not recognizable (e.g. lobster ravioli). Adventurous, great service, great seating.
We were very satisfied with the five-course prix fixe meal and its wine-pairing service. Most of the dishes were very memorable, in a good way!
A moment in time. An experience to take away and last a lifetime. Art on a plate.
Very expensive for what you get. Elegant minimalist decor throughout. Although the food looks very pretty at Temporis, lots of the flavors didn't meld very well together. I would skip the wine pairings - wasn't that impressed by the sommelier and the quantity of wine poured was pretty weak. They do have some interesting options by the glass and bottle that are reasonably priced. Lots of the courses included weird jello and powders and weren't really put together as a cohesive dish. If you're going I'd skip the wine pairing. For the price would highly recommend going to Oriole instead.
Great food and service. Perfect spot for a special occasion!
Attentive and courteous staff.
Will be back!
Such a great dining experience - delectable tasting menu with delicious non-alcoholic beverage pairing. Was pleasantly surprised by the Asian-inspired flavors and seafood/vegetarian substitutions they provided my Pescatarian husband at this “meat heavy” Michelin restaurant. Impeccable service to boot.
The accolades for Temporis are very well deserved. We were greeted in a professional and approachable manner once we stepped in the doorway. The space is small and cozy, with minimal decor, the focus is on the food and beverages. The creativity and thoughtfulness of the food really expressed itself throughout the entire dining experience. There wasn't any departure of ingredients that didn't feel in coordination of all the courses. The ingredients were elevated and celebrated in a cohesive way. One of the highlights was the non-alcoholic pairing created by their Beverage Director, Don Coen. Every drink was it's own culinary experience, masterfully balanced and absolutely delightful. That alone was worth the visit.
The entire experience was flawed especially as a Michelin star restaurant. The tasting menu was what it was, I didn’t think the flavors hit the mark at all on most dishes but that’s just my opinion but the decor, ambiance and service wasn’t up to par for the price at all. When presenting the wine options they encouraged the wine pairings which all of the wines were very low quality most bottles in the $30 range and they said the pours would be generous but was quite the opposite. For the quality and amount of wine served the wine should have been priced much better or they should have done what they actually promised that the portions would be generous which they were the opposite.
This is not a cheap experience, especially if you go for the wine pairing (which you should -- it is well thought-out and there is a "reduced-pour" option as well). I went in half-prepared to roll my eyes at yet another pretentious new-American restaurant whose execution doesn't quite meet the price tag, but man this place delivered. Every dish was stunningly well-balanced and executed, with wonderful flavors and texture contrasts (crispy sweet potato strings on roasted sweet potato with coconut and lime, a personal favorite, black garlic oil offsetting the sweetness of another dish, and mango gel and sorbet in one of the desserts. The meal is well-paced and left us neither hungry nor overstuffed. Service is warm and welcoming without being overbearing. Looking forward to going back after a while and seeing how the menu has evolved with the seasons.
First time that I’ve ever left a tasting menu feeling hungry.
A tiny jewel with a Michelin star in an inconspicuous small building on Ashland. Great food that happens to be gorgeous and delicious wine choices at all price points. Genial service that is not fussy.
Temporis clearly deserves its Michelin star. Be prepared to spend some time and enjoy wonderful taste treats with impeccable service.
Food is good but very overpriced.
I loved the meal. There were a few things they could improve on but this menu had the largest portions and aesthetics were amazing.
Amazing food and service! Highly recommend!
Amazing food. Really great service. Chef is an artist. This is one place worth a trip.
Great experience, can’t go wrong with a night out at Temporis.
We had an amazing experience, the staff was great!
Troy Jorge is an amazing talent. I will definitely be coming back. To me price doesn't really matter if everything is on point. I mean the little things there are what made everything an unbelievable experience for myself and my partner. From the ambiance to the plating of courses, to the wine glasses, to the micro green being snipped at the tbl. Ect. Ect. Everything was approachable. I would highly recommend and definitely be coming back. Thank you again for a special experience.
Amazing meal - creative, perfectly executed - and wonderful wine pairings.
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
