Outstanding cusine. Sophisticated without being over-the-top. Pricey, but worth it. We left happy.
We celebrated Valentines Day at Temporis and wow - I am so glad we did. Tasting menus are always a treat but this was something amazing. I had the premium wine pairing and my husband had the regular pairing. Both were perfect. Five wine selections perfectly complemented the ten courses. The attention to detail : spectacular. Sevice : awesome.
This isn't just an adventure for the palate but for the eyes and nose as well. I don't want to give away any surprises in my review. When L2O in Lincoln Park closed, I feared we'd never have such an intimate food experience like that again. Temporis didn't disappoint in any regard.
Some tasting menus includes one course (or more) that you could live without. Not so here. Everyone was excellent, inventive and worthy. Well done!
We went to Temporis for Valentine's Day and had the best experience! The staff was welcoming and attentive. We genuinely enjoyed every single item on the menu! (And usually there are one or two items on a tasting menu that you "appreciate for the art of cooking" -- here, everything was not only beautifully prepared, but delicious!) And bonus: everything smelled DELICIOUS! It was perfect for a fancy date!
Wonderful! We even went back to view the kitchen and meet the chefs
Another impressive dining experience at Temporis. Yet again it was a fantastic all around evening. Such warm, personable and attentive service, beautiful and comfortable dining room, excellent wines and course-after-course of amazing cuisine. Definitely one of the most under-the-radar venues in town; Temporis has become among my favorite restaurants.
Wow! it was an unforgettable dinner, celebrated a 30th bday.
The food was outstanding and great for foodies.
The server opened the door for us at the toilet, and set the chair every time we set down.
A 5 stars restaurant!
Very good. The food was very creative and they had a nice wine pairing. Tasting menu was good and just the right amount for our desire. We loved the creative use of micro greens that are grown on the premises.
Cute interior and fun experience
Went midweek and was a little too quiet for my taste but food and service were topnotch
Tasting menu with wine accompaniment is way to go but driving home not option...
Temporis is what you expect in a modern fine dining establishment. Great atmosphere, service and surprising / creative / delicious food. Highly recommended.
One of the best meals I ever had. Quite a unique menu that included duck, venison, octopus and scallops. The food was phenomenal, a symphony of flavors and smells.
This restaurant flies under the radar, and serves only a chef's tasting menu -- you don't really know what you will get until you arrive. But that is part of the fun -- the food was outstanding and highly creative with many combinations and cooking methods I would never have expected. Both food and service are outstanding -- be prepared to take your time and enjoy the experience. We took the 2.5 hours predicted. 9 courses of adventure and each was a pristine jewel, nothing was a true miss but the absolute stand-out was the course with octopus cooked sous vide -- spectacular flavor and the octopus itself had the texture of a good scallop -- slightly firm on first bite then soft and luscious. Best I have ever had.
Great experience overall. The food is both delicious and creative. The service was fantastic. Highly recommend!
The food was close to the best restaurants in Chicago like alinea, grace and oriole but just not as good of a fine dining option as those. Would rather just spend a little extra and go to one of those. Its about 80 percent as good and about 80 percent of the price so I guess it’s fair enough if you think of things that way.
Tonight was an awesome experience. From the welcome to the intimate atmosphere. The food was well balanced and thought provoking. Unexpected elements and fun twists on classic elements lead to an excellent meal. The wine pairing was thoughtful and complimented the dishes throughout. I look forward to a return trip for a different season's menu!
One of the most creative and beautiful dinners in Chicago. Wine pairing is excellent and highly recommended. Space is intimate. Perfect service.
