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
  • "Open contemporary design and scenic view particularly from lounge are positives. Seafood is emphasized halibut was good, squid pasta dish was a big miss, flaming chicken app adds wow factor to basic food, Seacuterie hodgepodge app interesting but not special. Suckling pig was good, no beef entrees offered. Not dissappointed but would be more inclined to return for a cocktail than for dinner"

  • "We had a great experience here. Terrific service and nice ambiance. The desserts were fantastic."

  • "I admit I'm biased against hotel restaurants, but this was a pleasant surprise. The menu was pretentious but very good, which is even more rare in a hotel restaurant. The wine selection was good, albeit pricey. The ambience is cool, almost cold, but tasteful. Prices were high, as would be expected. Our server was outstanding -- friendly, tactful, great suggestions, unobtrusive but ever present when needed, almost magical à la Bagger Vance. Overall an excellent experience."

  • "The restaurant is stunning and service superb. Menu is limited but has a great variety of choices. Wine list is expansive with interesting selections at all price points."

  • "Food was absolutely magnificient. We started out with the falafel shareable which was very good and then the sausage flatbread shareable, also very good. The main attraction however was the main courses. We had the Lamb and the Halibut wrapped in fig leaves coupled with the fennel side. Brilliant!!! Throughout the evening the service was great and a server was ever present. The recommended white wine paired very well with all dishes. Great place and a great evening."

  • "Food is mediterranean, tasty, limited for vegetarians as no entree but substantial appetizers/sides. The Langham is a beautiful setting. Romantic, leisurely elegance. Great place for a special evening."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "The service was perfect as usual , the food quality was off - I had the lamb Benedict and usually ask for pineapple instead of potatoes, and served me first the wrong dish, then the wrong item as I asked for it to be prepared and it was greasier than last. Will still go back often and the service is the best in the city, just need to deliver a consistent product."

  • "Love this place and try it often. This time the reception experience was strange and slow. Didn't feel the normal welcomeness that is the hallmark of Travelle. Halibut in fig leaves is my favorite dish and was not as good as last time, the fish was dry and had an odor and just felt poorly done in comparison to the last time. Server was fantastic"

  • "Michael was the server and was very attentive and professional. The white Gazpacho was great. Great looking kitchen, definitely adds to the ambience. Right mix of Mediterranean cuisine. Nothing pretentious just right on."

  • "2nd time there, mentioned on OT that this was anniversary dinner - restaurant missed. Seated in a corner with A/C blowing; had to ask to be moved. Beet salad a swing & a miss, as were both entres. Sommelier Michael very good."

  • "The waiter & barman were very accommodating for a drink I requested that was not on the bar menu. We had a good laugh about the ingredients but it was recommended by the Chicago Tribune. It was very good. I appreciated their effort. Jo Ann Putz"

  • "Everything was excellent. I might go back just for the chicken wings or the soup, but those represent a sidelight to the artfully prepared main courses with great flavors and presentations. Go now before everyone finds this place. We took a look thru the glass to the open kitchen and separately chatted with the head chef. Be sure to look in the interesting bar area and check out some amazing wines in the glass wall."

  • "Had the hamachi appetizer - didn't like this at all , it was thickly cut and had an odd odor. The Halibut with bee pollen , olives, and fig was the most amazing dish I have had in a long , long time. The honey pistachio cake was just ok."

  • "This is a really solid dining option in a neighborhood that needed an addition of this kind. The food was very good, the atmosphere is elegant, and the service is first rate."

  • "Travelle has an interesting collection of Mediterranean foods. Some of the dishes were excellent, a couple were ok. Chicken and Halibut were great....starters good, cumin carrots were over seasoned and hard to eat, polenta excellent. Excellent service...nice room, no view. A bit uneven but overall I would go back."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The service was terrible - we had to ask for the drink/wine list after waiting 10 minutes for the waiter to introduce himself and then needed to ask to have our plates cleared between courses. It is so unsightly to have dirty dishes in front of everyone while waiting for the next course especially if they are sitting there for + 10 minutes. The food presentation and taste were awful - of the six dinners only one plate went back to the kitchen empty. All of the others were 3/4 to 1/2 full because the food was so unappealing and tasteless. By the time we finished and we were asked about dessert, we were all weary and worried about what we would get so we passed. For the price point of this restaurant, they need to do so much better."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "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."

  • "Fantastic service, and a really interesting eclectic menu."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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."
