Opened in Chicago’s evolving Lakeview neighborhood at 2873 North Broadway in August 2012, Senza offers an elegant yet casual fine dining experience that features innovative modern American cuisine by executive chef Noah Sandoval (Schwa, Spring).

Taking familiar ingredients and integrating both avant-garde and classic techniques, chef Sandoval creates a composed as well as approachable nine to twelve course tasting menu that reflects a range of flavors and textures.

In the mornings, Senza transforms into the unique Wheat’s End Café serving coffee from Bridgeport Coffee Company and gluten-free baked goods from Wheat’s End Artisan Foods, which is owned and operated by Senza owners, Susan McMillan and Amelia Fonti. Inspired by the simplicity and sophistication of an upscale outdoor European café, the intimate 48-seat space transitions seamlessly from day to night.


Senza now offers pre-paid tickets in lieu of traditional reservations.

Bookings are available every half hour. Each ticket is inclusive of a tasting menu of approximately 10 courses for one guest. Wine pairings may be added to each ticket or you may purchase beverages when you dine.

Each guest will be contacted by phone or email to confirm any dietary restrictions, preferences, or special accommodations. For more information about tickets, please see our FAQ page. For any unanswered questions, you are welcome to email Cara.

    The Langham may have the best service of any hotel in Chicagoland. It is one of only a few hotels anywhere that unpack your luggage and press your clothes upon arrival. The Langham is a MrFiveStar Favorite.
