Come for the view, leave for the food

Travelle, in the Langham Hotel, is a beautiful room (great bar views), with good-looking neighbors. The restaurant staff has a great pedigree (Tru). Unfortunately, the food does not follow. With only four tables occupied at a recent visit for dinner, there were curious lags in courses arriving, especially for dessert (15 - 20 minutes). My wife's vegetables were burnt rather than roasted. I had mentioned we were celebrating our daughter running the marathon. When dessert arrived an additional dessert was included (without asking) for our daughter. When the bill arrived, after another long delay, they charged us for this dessert! If I don't ask for something, I shouldn't have to pay for it.

Avoid this place!
