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
  • "Had a great experience here other than my chicken being undercooked. The manager explained how the chicken is slightly pink due to the in house processing and how it is cooked. However after further investigation, they remade my chicken and took it off the bill."

  • "The restaurant was not crowded for a Saturday brunch. Lovely decor. Many very interesting menu options, it was hard to choose. Our party had sausage and fig pancakes, Nutella pancakes, the Eggs Benedict with the lobster, and lamb hash and everyone really enjoyed their meal."

  • "We ate here as we were staying in the hotel and came away very much disappointed. When we arrived, it was mostly empty (fine) but they took us next to the espresso machine. We asked for a different seat and, though we were denied our request to sit near the window as those seats were reserved, we were reseated. Of course, two of the tables near the window were never filled. The server was very nice, but a bit pushy - we were pressured into spending more on a bottle of wine than we wanted. The food was also disappointing. I always order my steaks well done, but have not in years encountered one quite so over-done. In addition to being chewy, it was dry and lacked flavor. Overall, we wouldn't come back unless it was on someone else's dime."

  • "We enjoyed our meal here. The food was good but not amazing and it's expensive. The views are nice but you can't see the water from the dining area. Also...the dining area is desolate during brunch time on a Saturday. I guess it's not that popular for breakfast on Saturdays."

  • "This is going to be a gem in the City; its hidden in the IBM building across from the Trump building. Amazing decor and design of the location that provides a clear view of the kitchen. Very clean presentation and staff is amazingly friendly but also aware of their surroundings. The menu provides a variety of views of the Mediterranean, not just the expected Persian or Middle Eastern but also southern France and Italy, etc. Wine list has more opportunities to try something new than sticking to basics of other comparable."

  • "Enjoyed this restaurant immensely. Waitress noticed we were uncomfortable sitting next to 2 loud young women and thoughtfully offered to move us to a quieter table. Enjoyed watching the chefs preparing food in a glass-walled kitchen. Food was incredible. Overall very nice."

  • "Nice restaurant to be wowed by the ambience, with its lovely dining area and great view. Our appetizers and entrees were very good, with fun touches like jellied olive oil to spread on the bread. Funny, though. My husband and I had our oversized silverware fall on the floor 3 times. So hold on tight, and enjoy."

  • "Loved the décor. But, lighting is a little dark in the center of the restaurant. They need to turn the spots up a little over the tables. We sat next to the windows for that reason. Noise level is moderate. Service is excellent. The food is good. But, I had trouble finding something to order. I don't eat four legged animals and overly spicy food. They do have one sea scallop dish. But the waiter warned me it was really spicy. So I ordered the cod and didn't like it because it had too much cumin in it. I would go back after a few months. Since this restaurant is so new, I think they are still working out the kinks in their menu and wine list."

  • "Took two of my friends to Travelle for 4th of July celebrations and it was the best choice. Sitting in the bar, river-side, is reason enough to come for a visit. The cocktails are well prepared, great wine list, and best snacks. Highlights were the gazpacho, chickpea fries, and the suckling pig. We split the pig three ways, and one of my friends was still hungry. She ordered the risotto, which filled her to the brim. I'm pretty certain I have had every dessert on the menu, including the cheese course, and I keep coming back to the pistachio honey cake. Not too sweet, well balanced with exotic flavors, but still has a "comfort-food" feel. Wish I had a piece right now."

  • "Great visuals..great views for the River...the rooms were too loud and the food was just adequate. The service was friendly and efficient. It's a one time try out...no need to return."

  • "The welcome smile of Evelyn on entering to our waitress and staff makes this place absolutely perfect. Food was dead good, had the moroccan benedict and home made juice and my friend who goes everywhere in NY was in love with the place."

  • "Contemporary setting with modern open kitchen set on second floor of boutique hotel by the river. Service was very good. Mediterranean dishes from various countries with many than can be shared. Food is very good and burst with taste and spices of the region. Bar/ lounge area looked nice with view to the river. There was live music playing. Would certainly stop by for a drink next time Other than a high noise level, my wife & I had a nice overall dinning experience."

  • "The service was excellent. Very personable. All the waiters/waitresses knew their menu inside and out. My friend told them I was graduating residency and they brought us free wine with dessert and a little congratulatory chocolate tag on my dessert - it just shows that they all communicate well too. Overall excellent dinner with plenty of veggie options!"

  • "Travelle is a tour de force of Mediterranean cuisine. They featured Portugal and Greece our evening but have a set menu that is fit for sharing amongst guests. Travelle wait staff are very keen to describe each dish, especially spices, and have an attentive support staff. Everything was very well prepared, and the wine list is not too long, but eclectic, with a kind Sommelier."

  • "We had an early dinner before heading out from the hotel to see a show and we are so glad we chose Travelle. The Pita Balloon and Muhamara were fantastic as well as the piri-piri chicken and lamb chops. Service was excellent, they even offered to get us a car for the trip to the show since it was pouring out."

  • "This is one of the best and perhaps underrated restaurants in the River North/Downtown area. The menu and preparation are so unique and outstanding, and the service cannot be outdone by any Chicago restaurant. This is my second time here, and I plan to be a regular visitor. Really great location, with convenient access to public transportation if you need it"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The wine list is one of the most encompassing in the city, with many quite expensive bottles and an enormous range geographically and depth within categories. The chef and servers are especially accessible and knowledgeable. The current menu features foods of the Mediterranean with a changing focus on certain countries in that region."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Though barely quiet enough for a good business discussion (and parts of the restaurant probably aren't) it's otherwise a good spot for a business lunch. Good food, and not the same-old-same-old downtown fare. Very good service."

  • "We had an outstanding experience at Travelle --- The food was wonderful and the service, at all levels, was impeccable."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Went there for a graduation dinner with family. Service was impeccable, and food was fantastic. Somewhat pricey but not overly so, and definitely worth the price compared to some famous restaurants we've been to (including Michelin-starred ones). I sense that the staff are really trying to make the restaurant stand out in the crowded Chicago dining scene, and in my opinion they are succeeding. Saw Chef Tim Graham speaking with a few tables and serving a large group. Would happily go back for special occasions."

  • "Food and service was excellent. The noise level was so high we could not hear each other at a table of 4 - because of that we would never go back."

  • "Outstanding restaurant! Welcoming and excellent service! Delicious food!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The food was very creative! Many vegetarian dishes, that made me smile. I have a dairy sensitivity. Our waiter knew immediately what dishes had dairy, and the chef made wonderful substitutions! So often I tell the waiter about my dairy issue, and I will still get food covered in cheese."

  • "Great experience as usual at Travelle. Great quality food with unique twists and nice service."

  • "Really enjoyed our dinner. The leek and potato flatbread could have been a meal by itself. Lamb chops were perfectly done as was the asparagus. Look through the entire wine list as those on the first few pages were pricy but there were more reasonable options towards the back. They need to add a nice Spanish cava as prosecco just doesn't cut it and the other sparkling wines by the glass were very expensive. Our only disappointment was the dessert selection. I rarely skip it but nothing here was a must have. Our waiter looked like Mark Consuelos' younger brother and was very accommodating with all my special requests. We will definitely go back."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "I had lunch here with a dear friend and it was one of the best meals I've had in a long while Suberb gazpacho, risotto, lamb, chicken and panna cotta. We had wonderful virgin cocktails with mint as well. The service was impeccable and they addresses me by name as soon as I walked in."

  • "After reading such a stellar review in the Chicago Magazine, we thought we would celebrate our special anniversary at Travelle. We were disappointed in our dining experience here. The hostess was gracious when she greeted us with anniversary good wishes. The view was out to the parking garage - but the dining room was lovely. The Mediterranean Portugal and Greece inspired was interesting, however the items we sampled were not on par with other fine restaurants in the city. The suckling pig was fatty and tough. The scallops tried to do too much with a combination of flavors. The risotto WAS excellent. Overall, we were disappointed and we will not return."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Excellent food that was universally loved by a group with diverse tastes and requirements (including vegetarians). Very helpful and friendly wait staff, good wine list, and an open, spacious ambiance with very well-controlled noise levels."

  • "We generally steer away from restaurants in hotels, but on a work trip to Chicago decided to try Travelle. We are glad that we did. There were three of us, and we split a number of small plates and one entree among the three of us. All of the food was quite good, and the small plates afforded us an opportunity to taste six different dishes (plus two soups) before we were done. "
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "I can hardly wait to go back to try the white tuna with sea urchin. Fabulous risotto with fresh peas and morels. The seacuterie, chef's seafood take on chacuterie, was imaginative and fabulous, with octopus and tapenade, salmon terrine, scallop mousse, fresh rhubarb sauce, large capers, and whole grain mustard, plus charred bread, delicious! Whole grilled bronzino with charred asparagus and lemon was simple and lovely as a main dish. Elegant, understated decor with wrap around views."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "The noise level was so high you could not hear people talk across the table. My entree was room temp upon arrival and I had to send it back. Another guest at my table ordered soup and it was cold and had to be sent back as well. I would not recommend this restaurant based on the experience I had. "

  • "I was actually highly disappointed in the service Open Table provided --- was trying to find reservations for 7 pm on saturday for five people, and, no matter what restaurant I searched, Open Table informed me that there are no reservation available other than 5 pm or 9 pm; I was forced to make a reservation earlier at Travelle for 5:15 pm. When we arrived to the restaurant, it was 90% available till 7:30 pm --- had I called the restaurant directly, I could ve made a significantly later reservation, which would have been way more convenient for all. "

  • "We had an incredible lunch at Travelle. The staff was extremely friendly and informative. The atmosphere was terrific but most importantly, the food was delicious. The lamb burger was out of this world. It was hard to chose from the dessert menu because there were so many choices but we had the Nutella Baklava. Too die for! It was a terrific dining experience overall and I would recommend it for business or pleasure. "

  • "Really great food and drinks. Cool atmosphere with city views and kitchen in middle of restaurant with clear windows for full viewing. Really, really knowledgable and friendly hostess, waitstaff and servers. They go out of their way to make sure you're enjoying the food and overall dining experience. I will definitely be back!"
