Travelle - The Langham, Chicago
Birthday Dining with Rochelle @ Travelle Kitchen + Bar,
330 N Wabash Ave, 2nd Floor
Chicago, IL, 60611
We arrived to valet parking.
Up to the 2nd floor space that have been transformed from the IBM cafeteria to elegant space for dining with a wine selections for well developed palate.
We were warmly greeted with a smile, and the evening started the journey to where all would be well please with smile, service, and surrendering to our palate’s extravaganza.
The 1st course started with an aray of items that included deep fried octopus with shaded figs (nduja kabocha squash beignet, fig, olive, meyer lemon) and we opted out of beignet because of pig; the carrot soup with ginger, thyme, ramp butter, crème fraîche, focaccia croutons. This was creme fraîche accompanied with toasted pumpkin seeds. The soup was finger lickin’ good.
2nd course were just very timely and tasteful. Neat and firm the Cobia was pan seared and finished in the oven top with sauce on half. It was plated with an assortment of roasted cauliflowers (various color). This included cauliflower, chives, pumpkin vadouvan curry crème fraîche.
The other 2nd course was the Tunisian rack of lamb. This chops were like butter, and the favor were bones cleaning. This included baby carrots, hazelnut vinaigrette, sheep’s milk yogurt
Our 3rd course was a Blue Cheese wedge salad with fried egg, tomato, avocado, green goddess.
Yesssssssss that was just very good.
House spun ice creams was provided and we selected vanilla, peppermint, and banana; the was 3 scoops. The was 1 scoop of vanilla tahini.
Valentine’s Day. Great as always
Excellent mussels appetizer. Cacio de Pepe was very poor
The ambience is beautiful, lively, and has great views of the river!
Love it wonderful .The staff are so friendly and helpful. Came into Chicago from the north side for brunch and to see Donna summers musical. We will return for a girls weekend .Thank you
Amazing food, service and ambience !!!
The Valentine’s Day menu exceeded our expectations! The oyster was refreshing with a creative touch, and the lobster bisque featured true French style taste (definitely a strained broth of crustaceans vs cheap tomato soup) with perfectly poached pieces of lobster. The fish course and wagyu were also perfect. We had a tailored wine tasting from the French sommelier who was so personable and knew his pairings. The nicoise tuna salad needed work to pull the deconstruction together. We will come back. A great chef!!!
We requested a special entree that was not on the menu. Our server Hugo and the chef could not have been more kind, cooperative and welcoming. We had a wonderful time!!!!
The staff makes everyone feel very special. They are extra attentive. This is my annual birthday family brunch and it did not disappoint. Can’t wait until next year!
I always enjoy this place for the outstanding service, food and ambiance. We will be back. (Especially for those scallops and lobster risotto. Yumm!)
We happened upon restaurant week - the menu was DELICIOUS, we tried different things and everything was pleasing. Value was out of this world. Great experience.
Restaurant week lunch.
Travelle’s menu for Chicago restaurant week was underwhelming. Risotto dish was bland, cobia didn’t seem fresh.
Overpriced for the portion size and quality of food.
Carrot soup was good as others have described. Cacio e Pepe had no flavor and needed salt. The grapefruit pavlova dessert had good citrus flavor but came with a rock hard puck of merengue rather than a pavlova. Service was good if not a bit too attentive.
had a great time with family. Service was excellent. Enjoye extra no charge amenities we were provided
The service for our lunch was slow -- but the food was delicious.
Would not return. It was basically a 24-hour hotel restaurant. OK for breakfast but seriously lacking in ambiance for lunch or dinner. Food was ok but overpriced.
We had a lovely meal and great conversation.
It’s hard to find a setting for both, most places being too noisy to converse. So we really liked
The service was impressive. The entire staff knew my name and made sure I was having an enjoyable experience. The food was excellent, especially the carrot soup. It was probably one of the best items I've ever eaten at a restaurant. I'll definitely be back.
Lovely experience all the way around.
The bar is really sharp with comfortable seating options, a cool view over the Chicago River and nice service.
Our meal was excellent. We enjoyed oysters, Asiago bread (spicy! spread), their unique take on a Caesar salad, plus a bone-in ribeye and Brussels Sprouts as a side. Everything was delicious and perfectly prepared.
The view into the glass-walled kitchen was cool and the dining room is very nice.
We’d definitely call Travelle a hidden gem and will be back!
We came for dinner but had drinks and appetizers by the window at the bar and had a great night! Food was delicious as well.
Superb service. Excellent food. Much improved since last visit six months ago.
This was an excellent experience. Great food, excellent service, great view from where we were sitting.
Amazing service and food. The fish for 2 was fantastic as well as the lobster risotto. Tri tip was good but a small portion. Kabocha squash and asparagus were great sides. Awesome drinks in the bar.
This is such a hidden gem! And Amber is amazing service wise. She had great recommendations and new the menu inside and out.
Amazing food and superb service. But avoid the pork belly. Full of bones and not good.
It was Nee Years Eve. The menu was just okay, for it being so central in chicago, the menu for a special night could have been spectacular.
An absolute gem of a spot for a lovely Chicago lunch.
It was pretty empty but I understand considering it was after the holidays, the staff was really sweet and we got a free dessert for my birthday which was nice.
Wonderful food, great service and beautiful restaurant. We went for Christmas Day Buffett and it was amazing.
It was the perfect place for a holiday meal. The food is delicious and the wait staff were cheerful and helpful.
Lovely location for a Christmas brunch. The food was wonderful and abundant - no complaints there. It’s a bit pricey but worth it - it’s comfortable and welcoming for everyone, the service is good (I only gave it a 4 stars here because it was hard to get another mimosa). We will be back!
Hoping for a lovely Christmas Eve dinner, my wife and I were disappointed. The quality of the food was mediocre at best. Salad was lacking in dressing though well fashioned. Scallops were rubbery and tasteless while my wife’s pasta was okay.
We really enjoyed our experience! The service was impeccable! We wish to thank the staff and manager for really making us feel special in celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary!
The service was inferior for the class of the restaurant
Holiday family dinner
