The place is beautiful, service is very good but the food was definitely overpriced. I don't mind paying big bucks when the food is worth it, in this case I don't think it is.

Everything was all just “okay”, but for the prices they charge I expect a bit more. The stand outs were the French toast and the grilled bread with the cast iron skillet eggs. Notice how I said it was the toast that came with the eggs and not the meal itself. My boyfriend ordered the eggs benedict and the eggs were damn near hard boiled. The food was all just mediocre. The service was pleasant though. Considering how few tables there were I was surprised how long it took to get our drinks and then food though. Not sure if I’d go out of my way to go back.

I had a birthday dinner celebration in the Travelle restaurant and it was absolutely marvelous! My birthday ended up super special thanks to Mauricio’s attentive and above & beyond service! We felt very well taken care of and couldn’t ask for a better evening.
My husband and I also had our 7 months daughter with us. We were not the easiest table to serve because of that. We very much appreciate Mauricio’s great attitude and we felt super welcome regardless. The restaurant provided with a highchair and kindly heated our baby’s meal. They also was kind enough to ask when to bring food for our table since my husband and I had to take turns and to rock our daughter in the stroller.
Food was fantastic, wine selection is beautiful. It was my best service experience. Thanks Mauricio for your warm welcome straight from the heart!

All the food was great. Everything was plated beautifully. The service was wonderful. The price was about what you would expect from a hotel restaurant on the river, and maybe a bit beyond. But a very nice location for a special occasion.

This was my second meal here in two weeks. The first time was so outstanding that I brought a number of out-of-town guests here for a business meeting last night. I can tell you that the first time was not a fluke. The food was every bit as good if not better and everyone was very impressed. I am saddened that on both occasions the restaurant was not busier than it is. The food is every bit as good as many of the finest other restaurants in Chicago.

Heard this was one of the best Restaurant Week offerings. Was received by a friendly hostess. Food was amazing, even being $44 3 course meal(expected less value) food portions and choices were premium. But what made it a great experience was wait staff, we won’t forget cause our server was Cesar(same as my name). He detailed the menu and made us feel at home. Will definitely go back.

I went to Travelle for the restaurant week and overall I had a good experience. The food was very high quality, although somewhat inconsistent in the sense that the octopus/pork belly appetizer and the steak entree were heads and shoulders above the other items.

The service was a bit strange. Our main waiter was pretty slow and nonresponsive. It seemed like he was working on something else as he disappeared for long stretches. Another waiter--possibly a manager--apologized and gave us a discount on the bill, which was nice. But I wouldn't expect that to happen in a restaurant of this caliber. Perhaps our main waiter was a trainee?

Food was outstanding, though the "tasting portions" for restaurant week were a tad small. This was made up for by the quality of the dishes and the service. Cocktails were fantastic as well, will definitely be back.

Casual elegance is a good description. Travelle has always been a reliable standby for us in Chicago. We were wary when chef Tim Graham was replaced by Ricardo Jarquin. But the new chef hasn't missed a beat. I love the vibe, very relaxed and elegant atmosphere, ideal for a evening of conversation, service is attentive. Most importantly the food is continues to rival all the trendy hotspots; a bit less of the prior mediterranean influences and more "American;" but a lovely and tasteful meal.

We enjoyed Travelle during restaurant week and to celebrate a birthday. Typically restaurant week menus are quite limited, but they offered many delicious options! Smoked burrata was great, as was the Octopus starter. The strip was also delicious and we added the brussel sprouts and potatoes as sides. I guess we were hungry! I slowed down by dessert, but my dining companion did not. Travelle knew it was his birthday and when they confirmed over the phone, they told me that traditionally, the birthday person receives a cupcake with a candle on it -- I said sure! Well, at the end of the meal I thought to myself, NO CUPCAKE! Our awesome waiter, Thomas, must be psychic because he came over at the end of the meal with some prosecco and champagne glasses. He said he noticed we'd slow down on the food and wanted us to still have a celebration.! Great food, excellent service!

Went during restaurant week and the menu looked good. Out of the 4 entrees I chose the fish. Probably not the way to go unless you are looking for a tasting menu portion as your entrée.

The octopus appetizer was good. Service lacked. Ordered 2 bottles of white wine and the 2nd bottle came out at room temperature.

Don't see the need to go back.

We went for Restaurant Week lunch and were disappointed. First, we both had to have the lunch - they would not do it for only one. The soup was delicious but it was downhill from there. The branzino was a 2 x 2 sliver that was not a quarter inch thick, and half of that was skin. I would say there were maybe 3 sliver sized bites of fish. The accompanying couscous and cauliflower was equally meager and bland. And the lemon dessert was dull. I have been to the Langham for tea, and it was outstanding. I would not go to Travelle for lunch again though. If Restaurant Week diners are second class diners, then please do not participate in Restaurant Week.
