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.

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!

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).

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.

Christmas Dinner at Travelle was the best meal we had while we were in Chicago. We had a five course prix fix that was truly outstanding. Started with a fresh hamachi sushi, followed by a pear and greens salad with roasted shallots(yum, yum). We then had scallops that were the best ever. Scallops were seared perfectly, not salty, and set above a purée of parsnips and pork ragout. Sounds odd, but it was divine. Brussels sprouts and crispy kale were the perfect topper. Had a braised short rib that was the perfect balance of the rich meat and sauce. He desserts was a delightful snowball with raspberry and chocolate. The best meal I had while visiting Chicago.

Beautiful Christmas Eve brunch! Asked to be moved to pavilion where afternoon tea is usually served for a gorgeous window view of the bridge to the river. Amazing variety of scrumptious dishes. Ramen, sushi, amazing king crab legs. Carving station with delicious ribeye. Salad bar with so many options! Loved the fresh homemade tacos and tostadas. Belgium waffles like I had in Brussels, fabulous fruit toppings (cherries, yum!). Dessert options were mind blowing, loved the coconut dessert. Adored the hot chocolate bar with choice of toppings! Wish I had another stomach to eat with! Service was impeccable! Compliments to the chefs, servers, and managers of Travelle for a fabulous Christmas 2017 celebration. Great personal touches such as Santa and the manager stopping by our table to greet us.
