Everything was outstanding. The food was inventive, the flavors were fresh, the service was perfectly paced and friendly. I highly recommend.
Great food, great service, wonderful wine selection, but even better cocktails!
Server was nice, but his English was difficult to understand. Alcohol prices high, but that’s to be expected I guess.
Celebrating a birthday lunch with my daughter. I had indicated that in the reservation. The event was acknowledged , we were offered two glasses of champagne and an appetizer as a birthday gift. service was well paced and attentive. truly a lovely celebration
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.
Restaurant Week menu was interesting. Portions were small. Service not great. Spilled drinks, miscues on orders and timing.
Excellent food and ambience. A minor hiccup in service was corrected promptly and professionally. Will definatly return.
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!
Came in for Chicago Restaurant Week and had an amazing meal! Everything was delicious and the presentation showed creativity and pride in the food being served. Service was excellent and I liked how the staff seemed interested in our experience. Please give this place a visit, you will not be disappointed!
I went for the restaurant week menu and was very happy with the choices. The Lemon Pavlova dessert was divine. The service was excellent throughout the meal, but I was done for quite a while and had to signal the server.to ask for the check.
Well worth a visit. Fantastic space and food to die for. 1st time but we will be back and often. Not for budget watchers.
Third year in a row for birthday luncheon celebration. I love the food and the outstanding service.
Went for restaurant week - food was great! Service was top notch. Can't wait to come back!
This restaurant was a perfect choice to enjoy restaurant week. The food was extremely good and our server JUAN was superb.
My date even got to visit the kitchen and learned about making yummy desserts from the chef.
Travelle offered a fantastic dining experience!
The food and the service was excellent.
Everything was perfect, had a whole team of people that made the experience amazing and as always Paul our waiter was excellent but the whole team from entering to the meal were fantastic. They make you feel welcomed and went during restaurant week and had some incredible dishes from octopus to steak and a dessert that was amazing.
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.
Went to lunch during 2018 Restaurant Week. Our group of eight ladies were seated in an eight-person table, privately between the wine/bar bottles. Wonderful setting. The atmosphere is very post; we wanted an elegant ladies lunch and we got it. The wait-staff were very attentive as was expected for this high-priced restaurant. The hostess was almost deferential and everyone made us feel special and like a "guest", not just like a customer. We got our coats checked (no charge) and water glasses were filled constantly. The food was tiny, tiny portions (there is no way a grown man used to meat and potatoes would eat here), but presented in such a way it felt like a treat. Definitely not a place to eat if you're a regular person who is famished. I had a cream soup, hanger steak, and chocolate cake. Surprisingly, I was full after lunch! Didn't know I would be! Coffee with dessert; and no problems getting our bill paid by eight various ways (we could have paid with one credit card and split it later, but the waiters were very happy to divvy up the bill between the eight of us). So nothing bad to say against this restaurant. I would DEFINITELY come here again; the afternoon tea looks to be special and this would be a great place for cocktails or showing off Chicago to friends or out-of-town co-workers. Thumbs up!
The food, wine and the presentation were outstanding.
Pleasant and professional staff greet you - food was excellent - octopus and pork belly takoyaki app made me go back the next day with a friend! Overall excellent place ezceeded expectations!
This was emailed to the staff; I have not yet received a response: The service was sub-par (our Prosecco glasses were left empty the entire meal even when we had plenty of wine left in the bottle), but I am writing to tell you about what happened when our check arrived. Please note that the sub-par service would not typically warrant an email.
When our server brought us the check, I double and triple checked to see if gratuity was added on the bill - it was not. We had asked our check to split evenly into 8 credit cards When our receipts came back, we all added gratuity onto the total. Then I noticed the math did NOT add up. It turned out that when the server went to run our credit cards, he ADDED the gratuity WITHOUT notifying us. I'm not sure how often this happens, and how many time you guys are able to get away with it, but it is VERY VERY shady and unethical. I can't believe the restaurant would condone such a thing, or you would hire such people that would do this. I dine out very frequently and have worked in the service industry, and I have never come across such a situation. I am absolutely appalled and disappointed.
Because of what happened with the bill, I will never be returning to your restaurant (the sub-par service was just the cherry on top).
Was treated like royalty. The best restaurant service we ever received. The food was excellent.
Fantastic service, extremely well prepared food and wonderful environment. I will be back.
Unfortunately this experience was subpar. Wait staff was unassigned so we never knew who to talk to, the portions were ridiculously small, and it took forever to actually get our meal. The ambiance is very pretty but sadly did not live up to its reputation.
I enjoy my food ,my wife and I
The tuna tasty and the branzino was very good
Planing to do another visit
As a chef I give them 10/10
Great location. Decor, service and food! Will definitely be back!
