A word from Travelle - The Langham, Chicago
Few regions of the world offer a culinary anthology like the Mediterranean. And there's no better place to celebrate culture and food than here, Chicago. Chef Tim Graham abides.

Contemporary preparations guide a tour down the fertile slopes of Northern Italy to the sea, and from the shores of Southern France to the exotic spice markets of Turkey. And you can witness every creation through the glass-encased show kitchen, in the dining room. Or reserve a front row seat with good friends, at the chef's table.

For a different kind of view, look south. You have a box seat just above the intersection of State Street and Wacker Drive and below, the Chicago River—a passage as vital to the city's soul today as to Fort Dearborn more than 200 years ago.

Welcome. You've arrived at Travelle. Indulge yourself with the food and drinks, and the views. Enjoy your stay.

    Travelle is a lively, architecturally interesting restaurant that looks out over the city of Chicago. Everything sparkles - the view of the kitchen is well lit, the wine cellar is in full view, and the bar is beautifully appointed. Most importantly, the food is outstanding, unexpected, and unique. The chef draws from different areas of the Mediterranean for his inspiration. There are plates to share, and the portions are neither too big nor too small. We had the Porterhouse for 2, which normally I would not order, but we wanted to share something with beef. It was flavorful and perfectly cooked. We also had a type of fritter that was as light as air. Dessert - the Nutella Baklava, was sensational. Go there, bring friends, and really soak in this fresh experience.

    The food was amazing and decadent. The decor was perfect. The service was not lacking in attentiveness or quality. The only issue I had was the treatment of me and my girlfriend. Being young and well dressed we expected the same treatment as any other diner yet after err were carded we were not given the same attentiveness or detail of our menu as were the the patrons behind us. Having a bill over $200 and a tip of 20% I hope that the service is reminded that not all young people are unaware of how they are comparatively treated and may actually have the money necessary to give the service the tip that they device.

    Made a reservation with Travelle based on reviews in Chicago Magazine for our 11 yr anniversary. Our dining experience was great. The waitress knew the menu well and based on her inquiry, assisted in selecting our starters. Honestly the best dining experience we had in awhile. The food was awesome from start to finish. Highly recommend and we will be returning again. Kudos to the Chef and Staff

    The food was overly seasoned. We had to send back the baby carrots for another dish. Loud techno-pop music inappropriate. Cost high for such a mediocre experience that, for a 25th anniversary, I had wanted to be special. None of the cute categories under #2 is applicable.

    If a seafood fan then this is a good spot for you. However, I would be happy if they would work on the following 2 issues: Travelle has very high wine prices and my fish came to my table at room temperature. I know my server would have been happy to return my dinner to the kitchen but being fish I didn't want it "reheated" only to dry out. Otherwise, the meal was very good and I would be happy to dine here again!

    Tried Travelle for the first time and had a very mixed experience. Service was uneven, the dining room is deafeningly loud due to the adjacent bar, although most of the food was better than good. Manhattans were a shocking $29/each, which I discovered only upon receipt of the bill. When I questioned the charge, the waiter shrugged and said "hotel prices." There are far better places to drop $300 for a dinner for two than Travelle.

    This was our second visit to Travelle and the first, while rushed due to theater, was superior. This time, the firsts came quickly and the entrees seemed to take forever. The descriptions of the fish items were not clear and our friends got thick fish when expecting thin and vice versa. I had lamb chops, single-cut, which were fatty, dry and tastelss. The pureed carrots under the lamb was overpowered with cumin (I think), a spice that need not be heavy. Same with the other unidentifiable vegetable on the plate. Dessert was a highlight. It will be a while before we give them another chance.

    There are a lot of restaurants that I try once and never go back to, either because there wasn't enough there to pull me back (in a city where I already have a lot of favorites), or because of something actively annoying. Travelle won me over, for a few reasons. The menu is really unusual. Several of our dishes were excellent; my favorite was the squid ink pasta with calamari and lobster broth (complex, balanced, lively). The wine list is extraordinary, at all price points. And the service, while not glitch-free, was exemplary in how it handled those glitches. Overall, a really good meal, and I'm left eager to return!

    The glass-walled kitchen (remarkably soundproof) brings the dining room to the chef's table. The food is attractive and the flavorings inventive. The wine list is huge, and includes offerings from many of the countries that touch the Mediterranean- unfortunately, very few selections for less than $100, which discourages most diners from trying something new.

    but it took a bit to find it. On the 2nd floor of a hotel that doesn't look like a hotel. But well worth the effort. Bar was busy, restaurant not. Beautifully designed space with clean lines, lots of windows out, and an open kitchen. Service was exceptional. We ordered starters to share. Food was rustic in concept, and presentation, but sophisticated in flavor. We plan to return.

    Amazing dinner! Great to find a menu that makes it difficult to choose with so many incredible options. The only thing they need to change is to pull the window sheers closed since all you see are offensive glaring street lights through dirty windows that overlooks a parking garage. The decor is elegant and food that made this foodie go "wow!" Just ask for a table away from the window unless they close the beautiful sheers. The wine list is over the top!

    What I love about Travelle is that you have wonderful food but the servers and whole staff are both elegant and down to earth at the same time. We tried the beet salad, which at every other place I have had I have not enjoyed, this was with goat cheese and had cumin - it was amazing. I could of eaten 2 of those for dinner alone. Tried the new Cod and squash and again perfectly done with this light outside batter that was delicious.

    This place is beautiful! The room is clean and crisp in a modern style with "Mad Men" style cues. The glass enclosed kitchen is a spectacle and it gives you a great view of all the very busy staff that is making the wonderful food you will be eating. The food is excellent, with unique tastes and generous portions. I would think any foodie would be happy. On the negative side, the service is overly fast. Your appetizers come 5 minutes after ordering and the wine list is EXPENSIVE. Overall, i would recommend as I enjoyed my experience.

    I book a table at Travelle because I could get 1,000 points by doing so. I mentioned we were celebrating my husband's birthday. We were greeted by several staff members, each wishing him a happy birthday. Our server was knew his stuff without being pompous. We enjoyed five starters and one entree, followed by dessert. Each plate was amazing with the exception of the crostada dessert. They brought out a cupcake with a candle that was excellent. Overall, we were quite impressed and felt we had a great dining experience. We would definitely go back.

The casual atmosphere of the dining room makes business conversation come easy. The wait staff was more than accomodating and the food was very good!! The cucumber soup was fabulous! Also, Travelle prepared a email invite to send to my business guests, which made me look so prepared and professional. I will definitely take clients there again.

I ordered a salad and asked for a non-dairy dresssing on the side and they brought me the creamy dairy dressing. One dinner ordered a sandwich and it came with salad or fries, she asked for salad and received fries. The waiter never acknowledged either mistake. not acceptable. hostess was snooty.

    My wife and I went to Travelle for our 15th Anniversary. It was probably the best meal we have ever had together. And we travel (Paris, Berlin, Prague, London, Madrid, New York, San Francisco....) quite a lot, and we like to eat out. The food was uniformly superb, and I don't think I have ever had better service. Every last detail was just right. Food came at a nice pace, so we never felt rushed or that we were waiting. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Definitely on our A list!

    We celebrated my husband's birthday and it lived up to my hope for a special experience. The menu is interesting and the food was great. Only suggestions are for the sommelier to maybe ask a few questions before jumping to a recommendation, and also for the staff to explain what's on your plate when it arrives. The preparations and ingredients are very interesting, but not always easy to recognize on the plate. We really enjoyed our experience, and chatting with the chef. Would definitely recommend.

    Some of the dishes are interesting. The goat beet salad has the cheese seasoned in cumin. It's different. Not for everyone. Could be good for foodies. We only tried the vegetarian dishes. Their gazpacho was tasty. Did not try the falafel which is a signature dish. The ambiance was nice. Clean and quiet. The bar area has nice views. Service was very slow. It took 20 min after we were seated to get our food ordered. And at the end out server forgot about us and I had to go find him for the check. Once you ordered food came out quickly. Overall we had a good experience except for slow service. I would recommend to my friends who want to try something different in terms of flavors and dishes.

    Tried the Hamachi and another fish appetizer and this time it was fantastic. As always service was perfect. My friend had the suckling pig , and I tried it and it was incredible. Fig halibut was not as good as past visits, very dry and for some reason the portion was halved. This is my favorite dish here and still not up to the first time I tried it here.

    The chef has an interesting approach to the menu with one side offering seasonal, region-inspired dishes. The other side with the still creative and regional dishes you may have heard or read about and anticipated ordering. All were beautifully presented, prepared and explained especially well by Peter who shared his passion for and knowledge of the food. The bar is also a must-see spot for the views along the river and skyline, comfortable seating and equally inspired and well-prepared drinks. We will definitely return.

    A restaurant in a fabulous Mies Van Der Rohe building - Bar has vintage leather seating Don Draper style martinis. Dining room feels kind of old-school - with soft aged leather banquettes and funky midcentury chairs. Views overlook the river and are fantastic at night. The wine room is very cool - glass walls with each bottle placed so the labels are facing out and servers are extremely knowledgeable!!! The open kitchen is definitely the focal point of the dining room - floor to ceiling glass, spotless kitchen floor, fun to watch the chefs and prep cooks at their stations. Food was inventive and creatively presented. The chef did table-side fish presentation for the diners next to us - very impressive. Enjoyed our evening very much!

    Everything about Travelle was exceptional: food, service, views, options, decor! The only complaint I had was that while in the bar teenagers continued to wander in. One Direction was apparently staying at the hotel but it seemed inappropriate for them to be in the bar which detracted from the ambiance. In fairness, the hotel did attempt security and even questioned my friend and I before allowing us to enter. We stayed at another hotel nearby but would choose the Langham in the future. It's a winner!
