Situated on the second floor of the luxurious Langham hotel in an iconic skyscraper designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe that once housed IBM regional headquarters, Travelle is located along the Chicago River in the heart of downtown Chicago. A play on the word travel, Travelle is a casually elegant restaurant, lounge and bar featuring Chef Jeff Vucko's Seasonal American cuisine. Dishes feature ingredients sourced from around the country, utilizing Chef Vucko's connection with some of the finest farms, ranches and orchards in the nation. Alongside a carefully curated 1600-bottle wine list, Travelle boasts a beverage program that highlights skillfully-crafted classic cocktails. Influenced by the romance of the digital age, architect/designer David Rockwell of the Rockwell Group creates a modern environment that conveys history, sophistication and nostalgia into the 124-seat restaurant and 81-seat bar and lounge that overlook the Chicago skyline and river.

I had heard good things about Travelle, but was overall disappointed in my experience there. The waiter seemed very uncertain and shy/quiet, and very rarely came to check on us. The burrata was exceptionally good, as well as the pork belly, but I sent my oysters back, and the beet stack was very odd - looked like an old layer cake. It wasn't bad, but for the price and location, I definitely expected a lot more.

We stayed at the Langham over Labor Day Weekend, but as we stayed on the club floor we did not experience Travelle. As we will no longer go to Petterino's prior to our Goodman plays, we decided to dine here. We started the evening in the lounge with the wonderful city and river views. The cocktail menu was amazing and the servers helped us with selections that we thoroughly enjoyed.

We then dined in the restaurant. I wish the views there were as great as the lounge and decor seemed a little casual for the food and prices. Our waiter, Caesar, and other staff were wonderful and added to the experience. Since we ordered the red snapper for two, he brought us the octopus appetizer as he thought we would enjoy it while waiting for the fish to be prepared. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and experience. We will definitely return.

We ate early diner before the theater. Had a special Charlie Trotter menu item of beef tenderloin with romesco reduction and shishito peppers that was amazing. First course of grilled prawns which was also incredible. Truly one of the best meals I've had in sometime.

Pretty sure the server was lost half the time. Waited for 15 minutes in a restaurant that had more servers than customers.

Food was excellent and enjoyable.

Then waited another 10 minutes to be able to pay for the meal.

That was annoying.

I love this place. The ambience, location, food and people are great. I have not once been disappointed with any of the above. The last time I visited was for a farewell dinner for a friend and they gave us some complimentary champagne just because she was leaving. Love such warm places and people!

Food was excellent and perfect place for a business luncheon. My only complaint was toward the end of the meal our server went rouge and was nowhere to be found -- we sat there patiently waiting for the check and probably waited an extra 20 minutes for her to bring it over.

I made reservations for a bachelorette dinner. Service was extremely slow and almost unattentive for the first hour. Ordering drinks took way too long. We had to corner the busboy to get our waiter to order our drinks. And they took too long to arrive. The food came out quickly once ordered. Food was great, no complaints there. It was just a very slow start to our dinner. I would have understood if the restaurant was busy, but it seemed about half full, so I don't understand.

This is my second visit, and the first one went great. So in general, I'd still recommend it.

Above average food for a higher end restaurant hotel for dinner. Very noisy, which limited our ability to converse during our business meeting. Indeed, the noise level in the adjacent bar was not just energetic, but loud. More attention should be paid to acoustics, especially in such a higher end hotel.

the food was great. The quiet dining room was wonderful for us. the service was not quite up to snuff in my opinion. Two guests arrived early and already had their wine. When the rest of us were seated, no one came over to make sure the rest of us had wine ordered. We then ordered a bottle of white and there was no interaction from the service staff about who wanted it or not. Then when we were ready to order our meal, we had to flag down a waiter to ask for specials and place our orders. And the restaurant was not at all full at that point. Thanks for your attention.

We had the best meal and were treated so well. What a beautiful, elegant yet not pretentious space. The server Mauritzio was helpful and accommodating. Chef Jeff Vucko came and checked on us and offered us a taste of their fabulous budino. We had the artichoke starter, skate wing, risotto and mashed potatoes. All was executed perfectly!! Definitely stop in the beautiful lounge for a drink and view of the river and skyline. Highly recommend!! Great date spot!
