Temporis is Chicago's newest Michelin Starred restaurant. Our intimate 20 seat restaurant is located in the West Town neighborhood of Chicago. We take reservations for dinner on Tuesday through Saturday, from 5pm to 9pm. Reservations are preferred as walk-ins may be difficult to accommodate - please contact us to book at your preferred time. Our eight to ten course tasting menu presents a simple yet refined representation of the ingredients and flavors we love to work with. We are currently charging $145 for this menu. Please allow up to 3 hours for your dining experience.

We believe that food that is inspired will translate into dishes that are the right blend of modern, yet approachable, familiar yet creative. This is the key to a memorable meal. Wine pairings ($105 and $165) and a bottle list will be offered, as well as some classic cocktails and non-alcoholic options. The atmosphere is intimate and modern. Business-casual or “cocktail” attire is suggested.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Simply outstanding on every level. Perhaps most impressive were the wine pairings. They are one of the few restaurants that offers a reserve wine pairing that is worthy of the name. This restaurant is the real deal.

I don’t write up post dinning reviews often, but I can’t thank Temporis enough for making our dinner “Mother’s Day in ORD” a wonderful experience for us. Our mothers, my husband and I enjoyed the fixed 10 course menu and found the creativity, food, and staff exceptional. We had a problem during the meal, unrelated to the restaurant or its’ service, and Laura and staff handled the situation professionally and warmly. Ensuring us not to worry “We are guests in their house.” And then went out of their way to accommodate some unexpected needs during our meal. As a result, our mothers had a *** experience. If you get the opportunity to eat and experience Temporis, take it, it’s worth it.

Came here for Mother’s Day brunch and it exceeded expectations. Service was excellent and on par with other Michelin star restaurants, food was prepared well and paced diligently, and the chef was accommodating enough to introduce a few dishes and entertain a short chat after the meal. Worth the wait, and am definitely coming back again!

An amazing all-around meal. Food was superb, the wine pairings were spot on, and the service was personable and interactive. I also appreciated that they called earlier in the week to confirm reservation but also ask for any dietary restrictions which my wife has. It was properly noted and the 2 dishes were amended just for her to accommodate. A fantastic evening and we will be back for sure. Well deserving of all their accolades and awards!

Everything at Temporis showed amazing attention to detail, from the greeting and seating, to the background music, to the description of the dishes and the tableside service by the chef, to the little treat to take home. The food was inventive, complex and delicious. The wine pairings were good matches for the food and we appreciated hearing about wines we didn't know. It was a special evening and we felt more like guests at a special dinner than patrons at a restaurant.

This was the best meal we’ve ever had. We did the tasting menu with the standard wine pairing. The setting was upscale and intimate. The service was extremely attentive, as befits a restaurant with only 20 seats. The flavors were outstanding, inventively presented and there were moments of pure surprise that left us on the edge of our seats. What an exceptional meal and overall experience! It was a truly memorable evening.

Loved it! The decor is clean and simple, the servers and wait staff were excellent, and the food was wonderful. The chef is very talented, and he came out to serve a few of the 10 courses to us personally. We had the reserve wine pairing, which was very good. Overall, one of our favorite tasting menus - we will be back!
