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.

Diner Reviews
  • "Great food with a wonderful eclectic menu. Service was outstanding on all fronts. However, the ambiance was like eating in an airport food court, too noisy, stark surroundings, and resembled a cafeteria. You can tell they spent a lot of money on decor and high end tables and chairs, but I don't think it comes together well. We went for a special occasion and it felt like we were having a great meal while waiting for our flight to be called."

  • "Travelle I found to be wonderful. cozy seating by the window if you just want a bit of privacy and a drink with appetizer, or the energetic bar area for more engaging conversation , the kitchen is very nice centered in the center of the dining area all glass and steel full view of chefs in action. The servers very friendly and knowledgable about the menu. I would recommend this gem for full dining or just a appetizer and drink."

  • "We entertained clients at Travelle recently and had a wonderful experience. The food was incredibly thought out and the service was excellent. The flaming chicken wings are a must have - incredible layers of flavor and perfect seasoning. It was a bit quite the night we were there but overall we would definitely go back."

  • "It's a very splashy place with nice views and a nice bar area. The food was quite good but the service was disappointing. It was very casual, impersonal and a bit on the short side. Perhaps our waiter was overwhelmed. The available dishes were not nicely described. The wine brought to the table was not the one I ordered and luckily I caught that right away and got the right one. It was just an overall lack of finesse. And by the way, the washrooms were overdue for some routine cleaning."

  • "Great service. Had the Wabash Express option which all comes at once. Very good!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "I dined alone. Perhaps this influenced the service. I found the service sub-par and inattentive, the waiter argumentative. The wine list/cocktails are over priced for the level of restaurant. I went for dinner and I will try a brunch--just to be fair. All in all a mediocre experience."

  • "Wonderful experience. Recommending to all. Food and presentation were outstanding and made it a very special evening. Price was a good value for quality of food."

  • "The restaurant is beautifully designed. There was hardly anyone there on a Monday for lunch. The menu was all over the place with Indian, Italian, Greek. The theme of the restaurant wasn't immediately apparent, so we had to ask, and the answered left us more confused. Wait staff was okay, but the host who greeted us was awkward and distracted. The food was tasty: a friend and I shared the kale salad, an octopus appetizer, and the lemon risotto. I hope they get their act together, because the location has great potential."

  • "Went to Travelle after reading the review in the Chicago Tribune. The server was very knowledgable and made great recomendations, and the gluten free choices were plentiful. We had the kale salad and it was big enough for our group of four to have a nice small salad. The hanger steak was flavorful, but nothing out of the ordinary and if you are seeking a steak, there are probably other places to dine. The suckling pig was very good and was a recomendation of the server. The lamb shank was also very good. All of the Mediteranean menu items looked delicious and I think that the best way to experience Travelle is to order several tasting items or half orders from the Mediteranean specials and share with a group."

  • "My wife recommended the Travelle for my 63rd birthday celebration. I was bit underdressed (having not thoroughly read the article from the Tribune that she gave me). None the less I was treated as a king by the serving staff. The food was well presented, delicious and unique. Our server was well acquainted with the exceptional wine list. The view of the river and Wabash is romantic and very Chicago. We will return and have already recommended our find to others. For the younger people the bar scene was was great."

  • "Everything about Travelle is pleasing. The doorman who intuit your need instructions. The gracious greeting up front. The exquisitely designed mid-century modern interior, including views of the meticulous glassed-in kitchen. The professional and friendly service. And the exquisite, fresh, freshly conceived, and expertly prepared food! It was so much better in all respects than I expected, an upmaket value, and a welcome addition to the Chicago dining scene. Travelle also offers a great place for an after-work or after-theater drink. I look forward to returning."

  • "Very special setting to have lunch. A perfect escape from the urban bustle yet still seeing the setting from a unique vantage point. A wonderful place to go for a drink or afternoon tea. A true treasure and asset to our city."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "After reading the reviews when Travelle opened, in the Tribune and Chicago Magazine, I thought, why bother? Both reviews led one to believe that the food was pretty poor at best. Our experience couldn't be more contrary. I'm guessing there's one experience for food critics, and one for the rest of us. We are considering the Langham for our daughter's wedding and wanted to check out the food before we commit. From beginning to end, pretty stellar. The service is impeccable, in the old school British manner. And the food good too! We loved the plates shared; octopus and hamachi. The chickpea fries should be tried! Loved them!"

  • "Food -- delicious! Kale salad exceptional. So were the steak and lamb shank, tiramisu and nutella baklava On the whole good service but not the top notch level that the Langham prides itself on. Dinner arrived and my champaign glass was empty but no one came and asked if I needed another drink. Didn't wipe out the bread crumbs from the table. Needs focus on the finer details for such a beautiful hotel. The manager was great, very attentive and charming. However, the maitre'd (a woman) not very attentive. For instance when we were leaving-- she gave us our coats hurriedly. But was more interested in talking with her friend/coworker. This is definitely not the Langham Hotel standard for sure!"

  • "Dinner selection was unique but delicious. Pricing was more than fair for a city place"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Service in the bar (Kevin F) was phenomenal, as was Andrew in the dining room. The brussels sprouts were incredible, but the quality of the food overall was somewhat disappointing, and lacked flavor, and even the presentation lacked inventiveness for a high end restaurant."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "We dined here for our anniversary. My husband really enjoyed the kitchen that was enclosed in glass so you could watch the chefs at work. The staff was great. Very attentive and knowledgable. The food was fantastic. If you are a seafood lover this is definitely a place you want to check out."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "How many hotels remember your favorite tea and have it waiting when you get to the table. Was meeting a business client here and that touch and respect made the whole meal amazing. Evelyn and the gentleman with her on greeting and our server were so professional and just plain excellent. Try the Moroccan benedict - hard poached and just amazing health and perfect size breakfast. Some places are expensive for below average items and this place is not inexpensive but every dollar gets your the finest ingredients."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "One of the best meals we've had. The leek flatbread was to die for and the steak tartare perfectly seasoned and super fresh. The presentations were fabulous. The server was always there at just the right moment. A bit pricey but worth it. Beautiful dining room and bar"
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "Ambience - nice/quiet w/o being silent. Food - pleasantly and surprisingly spectacular. If the meal we had is consistent with their everyday quality it's on par with the Michelin-star Sixteen across the street. The filet was incredibly tender & cooked perfectly - red in the middle and juices retained w/o leaking. The fish with lobster sauce also cooked perfectly & the sauce complements the fish nicely w/o overpowering it. Though the staff was cordial & accommodating there are certain things I would not expect of a 5-star hotel restaurant. Our table needed an additional wipe down as part of it was sticky & when they squeezed the blood red orange on the fish, some of it splattered on my wife's white sweater. Otherwise, good experience."

  • "My wife and I decided to celebrate Valentine's Day on Sunday. This turned out to be the best option for us. The team was extremely attentive to us. I felt like they had come to our house for a private dinner. Thanks for some wonderful food and ambience."

  • "Great Food.... especially the variety for us vegetarians.... Carlos was a Great server... ambiance is like from a 60's restaurant... but the bar area was good..."

  • "Travelle gives the diner the sense of being whisked away to somewhere else. The restaurant shimmers on entry and the food does, too. The food was spectacular, with phenomenal flavors and beautiful preparation."

  • "The food and wine were fabulous. It was a night to celebrate with friends so we splurged! Great time"
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "Visually, it's a lovely place. It's elegant, quiet. Had a drink at the bar first and liked that very much. The restaurant itself is quiet and a bit low energy. The kale salad was great, but you need to like kale. Also, a special flatbread with pickled mustard seeds and several cheeses and leeks was absolutely outstanding. It should be a regular on the menu. Their chocolate dessert was o.k., but not terribly exciting.Our particular food server was so good, I mentioned it to the manager. Yes, I would go back, perhaps for lunch."

  • "Another downtown hotel restaurant, rather out of the way. Nowhere near Michigan. Only a few diners were present on this weekday night. In spite of this, service was unenthusiastic and slow, distributed among several waiters, none of which seemed to know or care about us. As one might expect in an underutilized hotel restaurant, selection was not fantastic. Two types of oysters (we had to ask waiter their types). Fancy dishes, not very well pulled off. Suckling pig -- a good try. Appetizer cerviche -- left it on the plate. Desserts unexciting. Wine (malbec) was fine, but a little puddle in the gigantic glass. All in all, good place if you are "hard up" to find a place to eat in downtown Chicago. Doubt it is every busy."

  • "The lobby of the Langham hotel is beautiful but somehow they stopped the beauty once you enter the dining room. There was a feel of an upscale corporate cafeteria. The food was delicious. The service not so good. We waited over 15 minutes for the waitress to take our drink order and the restaurant was less than half full. We ordered a flatbread which never came."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "Finally!! a Mediterranean restaurant that is not afraid to venture out of the typical Mediterranean items. The meal was outstanding and service to match. Prices are very approachable, don't be afraid that it is in a hotel, not a typical hotel restaurant at all. Falafel was the best I have ever had. Piri-Piri Chicken was amazing, one of the best half chickens in the city. Lots of great options to choose from. They are also making some great pastas from scratch, Boar Ragout Pasta is a must order. New Favorite Restaurant."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "The Langham is a beautiful hotel. My only complaint with Travelle was the service. It was average, at best. It took over 5 minutes to get a cup of coffee and the restaurant wasn't even full. The waiter never asked if I wanted a refill and our dirty dishes sat at the table until we paid our bill. I will try it again because of the atmosphere and the menu was very extensive."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "The food was great! Based on all the reviews I've read in the past, that was not a surprise to me. We had an octopus appeitzer along with the 3-item "sea-cruterie" - both were spectacular. My girlfriend has the lamb (fall off the bone, delicious!) and I had the seabass - perfectly cooked with an amazing cauliflower and hazelnut base. What did surprise me was simply how good the service was. Our waiter (Carlos) was very very friendly and knowlegeable. He was a true professional and also just a very friendly, enjoyable person."

  • "My wife and I spent the weekend and the Langham hotel and one of the reasons was to try Travelle. The food was above average, but we just could not get over the space. Immediately when you walk in you notice how noisy it is. I am all for a noisy restaurant, but Travelle is intendned to be a bit more intimate. Secondly the lighting was brutal. There is a beautiful wine cellar but it is lit up like a Christmas tree. all of the harsh lighting then lights up the dining room. Add in the glass enclosed kitchen and you dont even need to have lighting in the dining...but they went ahead and added more lights. Please get a lighting consultant to review the space. the bar space is beautifully lit so I know you can make the dining beautiful."

  • "A sleekly soft, understated, classic dining experience with some global culinary overtones; The Langham's fine dining room mandates a starting cocktail at the chic riverview bar. Try the Winter. Our dining room, with its international style, features a beautiful glass box display kitchen as a backdrop. Our server had great menu knowledge and all his recommendations proved true upon delivery. Signature apps drumsticks- a flaming homage to Greektown, the lamb shanks and piri-piri half chicken were super. A side of sprouts need a little work, however the pastry department has a beautiful hand so both our treats were just that. They are currently without an official sommelier, but our the educated servers recommended a fantastic wine for us."

  • "With the blonde wood tables and large lights over the tables the restaurant felt too bright, like a cafeteria. Food and service were very good. I had the suckling pig, which was quite tasty."

  • "Tried out the restaurant for lunch during Restaurant week. The portions of the food were small, but not sure if they are always small or because it was restaurant week. The dessert was amazing. I had the chocolate, hazelnut, caramel torte - delicious! I would definitely go back for high tea or dessert and wine. The Langham hotel is beautiful. I used to live next door and I'm disappointed that I moved."

  • "I have stayed at the Langham several times now since it opened and absolutely love this hotel. It is definitely my new favorite in Chicago. We have even ordered room service which was very good. So, I had expected Travelle to be at the same service level as everywhere else in the hotel. The food is very good, just don't plan to dine here unless you can have a very leisurely paced meal. Service is often very slow. I booked for a lunch meeting and arrived after my team. Was told that it took 10 minutes for them to get water and a menu. Not what I typically expect from Langham and felt bad after I had talked the place up:-) Fortunately the food was very good. It will be a great place once the service kinks are worked out."
